#Blogtober16 Day 9  Favourite Movies You Never Get Sick Of Watching

I can't believe I've managed to get to Day 9 of posting everyday! Today it's about Favourite Movies You Never Get Sick Of Watching. I'm one of those people who can read a book again and again. I can also watch a film again and again so there are loads that I am happy to watch again. Most of them are old films from the 80s and 90s. I'm not sure if that's because the films were better or if they are just my sort of film. I really do not like horror movies but love a bit of gratuitous violence Tarantino style so would include all of his films. I love the classics too, Casablanca, Gone With The Wind, It's A Wonderful Life.

In the 80's I watched Top Gun and Arthur practically every week. I loved them both. I'm a real sucker for a romantic film and Arthur (the original with Dudley Moore) was just so funny too.

All the Indiana Jones films and Romancing The Stone (Michael Douglas). I love anything with Tom Hanks. Big, Philadelphia right through to Bridge Of Spies.

So basically it's actors I can watch again and again so a quick list;

Tom Hanks
Clint Eastwood
Tom Cruise
Simon Pegg
Michael Caine
Christopher Reeve (in Superman can watch them all again and again)
John Travolta and Woody Harrelson
Humphrey Bogart
Harrison Ford
and on and on......

Just a very few of my all time favourites.

Top Gun

Tom Cruise and Kelly McGillis Top Gun 1986 Paramount Pictures

Pretty Woman

Julia Roberts and Richard Gere Pretty Woman Touchstone Pictures 1990

Stand by Me

Will Wheaton, River Phoenix, Corey Feldman and Jerry O'Connell Stand By Me Columbia Pictures 1986

Love Actually

Emma Thomson and Alan Rickman Love Actually 2003 Universal Studios


Simon Pegg and Paul 2011 Universal Pictures

Gran Torino or in Fact any film with Clint Eastwood

I could go on and on! There are so many I keep thinking of but I have to start writing Day 10 of #Blogtober.

What film can you watch again and again?



  1. I love Top Gun, I was only recently introduced to it a couple of years ago though by my hubby (who is a massive fan of the movie!)

    1. It gets such bad reviews from the media, but we all love it!

  2. Ahh! I forgot about Stand by me....Such a fantastic film!
    I love Love Actually. Such a sad but happy film.

  3. Aaaah, by actor is a far better way of thinking about it, I've realised I've completely overlooked 'Big'... fab choices. #Blogtober16

    1. I love Big! I could just list all of Tom Hanks films x

  4. Every post I read, it reminds me of another favourite lol! Pretty Woman- love that film! I made up a movie quiz for my post, would love to read your answers! Katie x #blogtober16

    1. Pretty Woman, the bit where she goes back to the snooty girls and says Big Mistake! Love it

  5. I love Pretty Woman I must have watched it at least 10 times. Stand By Me is another classic that we watch a lot in our house.

    1. Haha While writing this I just thought of An Officer an A Gentleman! Love the bit at the end. Fantastic!
