It’s no secret that although I love a good series marathon, I’m also a sucker for old Hollywood films. I like to watch as many old films as possible, along with some of my all time favorite classics. So today, for the first installment of my Friday favorites series on the blog, I decided to compile a list of my top favorite movies of all time (in no particular order). So if you’re super into old movies like me, or just wanna watch something different, check these ones out, you’re gonna love them.
Here are my top favorite movies of all time (in no particular order)
Breakfast at Tiffany’s
In this ageless film, Audrey Hepburn plays the character Holly Golightly, a young society girl who goes on a very entertaining journey to find love in the big city. The very first film I watched of Audrey and I really enjoyed it.
As wired put it, there will never be a better indie film than pulp fiction. It is funny, cocky and packed with action. Just a really great film.
I’ve always detested horror films, I don’t understand why I have to spend time or pay money to get scared. Enter “Rosemary’s baby”, Possibly the best horror film ever made. It is the story of a loving young New York City couple who are expecting their first child. Rosemary is a first time mother, she is confused and afraid. Her husband, an ambitious but unsuccessful actor makes a pact with the devil that promises to send his career skyward. Really scary, but definitely worth the watch.
The shawshank redemption
Adapted from the Stephen king novella “Rita Hayworth and the shawshank redemption,” this movie is awesome. When I watched the shawshank redemption for the first time, I was mesmerized. It will bring tears to your eyes, it will make you think and it will teach you to value so much that we take for granted,
I always say ‘94 gave us some of the greatest movies of all time, and Forrest Gump is no exception. Tom hanks, plays a sweet good natured but painfully slow Forrest Gump who manages to somehow be involved in every major event in history during the last half of the 20th century all the while yearning for the love of his childhood friend Jenny (Robin Wright)
Gentlemen prefer blondes
Not the greatest film of Marilyn Monroe (IMO) but one of my personal favorites. In this iconic film, Marilyn Monroe plays Lorelei lee, a not-so-dumb-blonde showgirl whose philosophy is that diamonds are a girl’s best friend. She goes on a boat trip to Paris with her best friend Dorothy(Jane Russell) where she intends to marry her millionaire boyfriend. It is a really fun and very entertaining comedy, based on the book by Anita Loos.
The Sound of Music
I believe every child watched this film growing up I can’t count how many times I replayed this film as a child, I knew all the lyrics (still do) to the songs. I mean who didn’t love Fraulein Maria ( Dame Julie Andrews) and the Captain (Christopher Plummer) and all the seven children? It truly is a classic.
The breakfast Club
Is about a group of 5 high school students that get put together in detention. And as time goes by, they stop trying to look superior to the other, and instead get to know each other, realizing that each person has that special something.
