A few days ago, I posted an entry about my favorite films but I didn’t give you the title or any information, just an image, but today, I’m here to talk about my favorite films and why you should watch them. This will not have spoilers and they are list from my favorite to my least favorite (but keep in mind that they are all my favorites)
- Black Swan (2010) Directed by Darren Aronofsky
THIS MOVIE OMG. This is my favorite movie of all time. It is about Nina a young ballerina who will dance as the Swan Queen but to become the perfect dancer, she will pass through a lot of thing. Soo, this movie is amazing, perfect, brilliant. It is a psychological thriller that is brilliantly done, Darren Aronofsky’s mind is so powerful just because he made this movie. Also Natalie Portman did a perfect job as Nina (Fun fact: She won the Oscar for Best Actress for this movie) My favorite part is the final sequence, THE POWER THAT THE LAST SCENE HAS UGH, other movies could never.
- Rocketman (2019) Directed by Dexter Fletcher
THIS IS THE SUPERIOR BIOPIC AND IF IT DOESNT AT LEAST GET NOMINATED FOR AN ACADEMY AWARD I WILL BE SUING HOLLYWOOD. This movie is a musical fantasy about the life of Elton John. Every aspect of this movie was amazing, the song selection, the remake of the songs, TARON EGERTON, the acting, the production and costume design, everything was amazing. Every Musical number was so different yet they all connect to each other and all of them hit right on the spot of the song, my personal favorite is ‘Your song’. Also Taron Egerton and Jamie Bell deserve a nomination at least for what they did for this movie, I mean their minds were wo powerful on this movie. And the way they ended the movie omg. You should go and see it right now.
- Billy Elliot (2000) Directed by Stephen Daldry
I LOVE THIS MOVIE. I’M A BILLY ELLIOT STAN FIRST AND HUMAN SECOND. It is about Billy a boy who trained box but then he discovers that his passion is ballet. This movie was so wholesome at some parts. The friendship he has and the end of the movie was so emotional omg.
- Clue (1985) Directed by Jonathan Lynn
BRILLIANT. OUTSTANDING. HILARIOUS. AMAZING. PERFECT. POETIC CINEMA. This movie is a masterpiece and I’m not exaggerating. It is based on the board game with the same name and it is hilarious. It is really hard to find this movie, but if you find it, watch it, without s doubt you will enjoy it.
- Moulin Rouge! (2001) Directed by Baz Luhrmann
THIS MOVIE OMG. (i love that I start every paragraph with the same phrase) This movie is a musical that adopts several songs into the story. I do not cry while watching a movie, but this one is the only one that has made me cry while I was watching it. Every musical number is magical and this movie has some of the best production design that I have seen in a movie. My favorite parts was ‘El Tango de Roxanne’ and ‘Your Song’
- Mamma Mia! (2008) Directed by Phyllida Lloyd
I don’t have a lot to say about this movie because on another entry I already explained my love to this movie and all I have to say now is that I want to be on Greece singing to ABBA while I try to find out which of the three men I invited to my wedding is my dad.
- Donnie Darko (2001) Directed by Richard Kelly
This movie is really weird, I recommended it to a friend and he texted me that it was one the weirdest movies he had ever seen. This was the movie that started my love for Jake Gyllenhaal, he looks so small and emo on this movie. I really don’t want to tell you what is about, because I think is better if you watch it without knowing a thing.
- Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping (2016) Directed by Akiva Schaffer, Jorma Taccone
THIS IS THE BEST SATIRE OF ALL TIME. Where do I even start with this movie? How do I explain it? I guess I’ll try. This is a satire about the hip hop or rap industry or even the whole music industry. This movie is ridiculous but it never stops to make you laugh. This has a lot of cameos like Emma Stone, Snoop Dogg, Pink, Adam Levine and others. This movie sounds like a mess and it is a mess, but a perfect mess
- Dirty Dancing (1987) Directed by Emile Ardolino
THE FINAL DANCE IS ICONIC. If you don’t know this movie, where have you been for the last 30 years. I’m not even going to explain what it is about, go watch it right now, because all the dances snapped and don’t even get me started on the soundtrack.
- The Truman Show (1998) Directed by Peter Weir
This movie is so powerful, like every aspect of this movie was amazing, the photography, the acting, the script, the production design, EVERYTHING. I love this movie and it has become one of my favorites on just a couple months, my favorite parts were the sponsors and the end. THE END. THE FINAL SHOT OMG.
Those were my favorite 10 movies. Some of them are very different from the others, and half of them have to do something with dancing, but I love them all.
