I was never much of a movie person until only a few months ago when I decided to subscribe to Netflix. Of course, before that I did watch films but not on a regular basis. I thought I would write a post about all the films that I have been loving at the moment. This is in no particular order.
I have lost count of how many times I have watched Matilda but it is probably my favourite film of all time. Recently, I have been scrounging online to watch something and when I am rather bored, I turn to films that have repeatedly watched about a million times and last week, it happened again. I decided to watch Matilda. I never get bored of it. Each time I watch it, I am always hooked. A childhood favourite and will always be on my top 10.
Any film that Emma Roberts is in, I will watch it. I have loved Emma ever since her Unfabulous days on Nickelodeon. Wild Child is mainly set in the UK because the whole storyline is to do with Poppy More (played by Emma Roberts) moving to an English boarding school called Abbey Mount – except, a lot of commotion happens. Such a great movie and well played by Emma Roberts.
Confessions of a Shopaholic
Confessions of a Shopaholic is by far one of my favourite ever movies. I can relate to it so much because, I am a self confessed shopaholic myself. Rebecca Bloomwood, played by Isla Fisher is a journalist who lands a job at a financial magazine, except she is in debt and cannot control her shopping habits. This film sends a great message about being good with money and what the consequences are when you are not.
Beauty & The Briefcase
Beauty & The Briefcase is a similar film to Confessions of a Shopholic with regards to journalism and working at a business/financial type of organisation. Except, in this film, Lane Daniels played by Hilary Duff, undergoes a job by Cosmo magazine to work at a finance company as an investigate journalist. Lane wants to find love in the workplace and goes on a mission to date as many business men as she can to find the perfect guy. How fun would it be to be an undercover journalist? Great film.
The Devil Wears Prada
I only just watched this recently and I absolutely love it. Based on the novel of the same name, Andrea Sachs, played by Anne Hathaway is an aspiring journalist (are you sensing a pattern in my movie choices?) who gets a job to work for the Editor of fashion magazine Runway who is Miranda Priestly, played by Meryl Streep as her personal assistant. But little did she know that in order to work in fashion, she must change the way she dresses and behaves, affecting her private life and relationships. A wonderful film, which I reckon I will watch again.
