There have been many different movies that I have enjoyed this year, but I have picked just 3 of them to discuss today!
Okay so, this is not in the order of which they were released, instead, I will be talking about my number one favourite movie first, followed by second place and third place! My favourite movie this year so far is… Christopher Robin!
Everybody loves Winnie the Pooh, right? I mean who couldn’t adore him as a character? He is fun, positive, cute, cuddly and ‘ex-pooh-berant’! Not to mention some of the adorable little phrases that he comes out with. Which brings me to my first point about this movie… the writers have made sure to put in much-loved quotes from the original Winnie the Pooh TV series and movies. This made the movie very nostalgic for me, reminding me of my childhood as well as rekindling my love for the ‘silly old bear.’ What adds to the magic it the voice of Winnie the Pooh… is the original actor’s voice! The wonderful Jim Cummings returned to voice Pooh Bear and melted the hearts of many! I have adored Winnie the Pooh from as long as I can remember! From reading the story books to watching the movies and the TV shows, so you can imagine how excited I was about going to see Christopher Robin…
Overall Christopher Robin was a super good film, the storyline was brilliant, the characters were fabulous and I think I went through every emotion on the planet while watching it! I would highly recommend this movie to anyone, especially Disney fans (though I am sure you have all seen it already!). On top of this movie, Disney released teddy bears in the style of the animals from the film… old-fashioned, original style plush toys, and I have fallen in love with them! I would love them all… however the two I love the most are definitely Pooh Bear and Eeyore!
Okay! Enough Pooh Bear chat, onto the next movie…
It has to be Infinity War… I know a lot of people don’t enjoy superhero movies… but they are my guilty pleasure (especially if they come from Marvel!) I have followed the Marvel films for a very long time, so when it was revealed that they were building up to one huge superhero movie, I was filled with excitement! Seeing all of my favourite superheroes in one place was so intense, but definitely worth the long wait! This film was jam-packed with action from the very start as well as having aspects of humour thrown in there too. My favourite characters are Iron-Man and Spiderman… for those of you who have seen the movie will understand my utter heartbreak during that scene. I could sit here and write about the entire film, every character and all of my favourite moments, but we would be here forever and a day! So instead, all I am going to say is this…
Infinity War is an amazing movie with scenes that will make you laugh, cry, gasp, and shudder, leaving you sitting on the edge of your seat throughout! If you have never watched the Marvel movies, please do! They are all wonderful in their own unique way and definitely worth your time!
My last movie may be an unpopular pick… it is ‘I Feel Pretty’. Now this movie was relatable to me in a way, at the start the main character (played by Amy Schumer) feels ugly and feels as though no one takes her seriously and no man would ever fancy her and she goes to a fitness class to try and get in shape at the fitness class she has a fall, hitting her head on the way down… when she comes around and sees herself, she suddenly feels more pretty and sexy, she believes she looks completely different and so her personality changes too and she becomes full of confidence! Overall, this movie is super fun and uplifting and the message it portrays is really beautiful… it does not matter what you look like if you are confident within yourself and work hard at the goals that you want to achieve… you can do anything! I feel as though this movie has become the new feel-good movie that I will turn to when I need a happiness/confidence boost!
I am looking forward to watching Venom (by the time this post is published I would have seen it!). Venom is the villain from Spiderman… Jake is super excited to go and watch it and after seeing the trailer recently, I am too! So we have booked tickets for Saturday 6th October!
I am also looking forward to Goosebumps 2, I know this is a ‘kids’ film, but I loved the first one and I am super excited to see the second. I saw the trailer today (5th October) and found myself laughing at it, so I would definitely like a cinema trip to go and see this one!
And the third movie I am looking forward to seeing this year is The Nutcracker and the Four Realms. I will definitely be re-watching the original Nutcracker before watching this one, but the new trailer looks really exciting and different! I may need a girls night for this one though as I don’t think this would interest Jake!
I would love to know what some of your favourite movies of 2018 have been so far, and what movies are you looking forward to? Let us know in the comments below!
