My All-Time Favourite Movies

Screen Shot 2017-11-11 at 7.36.33 PM

Before I get started, let me make it clear that I’m no movie buff. But I have watched my fair share of movies.

I’m not going to give away the movies, in case you want to watch it. I’m really into action, suspense, and mystery movies. Also, you’ll notice a trend in these movies….because Christopher Nolan is just too good.

1. The Dark Knight (2008)

This movie became a classic the moment it was released. I don’t think anyone can deny that this movie is amazing. I’ve watched it countless times and yet I still find things that I didn’t notice before. You can watch this movie over and over again and not get bored of it. You’ve got to love Heath Ledger’s Joker in this. He’s pretty much what makes this movie good, other than Christopher Nolan’s directing. Ledger’s role is iconic.


2. Dunkirk (2017)

In 2016, I found out Chris Nolan was making a new movie (finally) and I was very excited. He hadn’t made a new movie in a few years then and I felt deprived. I discovered that the movie would on the the Miracle of Dunkirk. I’ve always been really interested war movies and war in general.

The film has minimal dialogue, but it works. The actors tell the story so well through their expressions alone. It’s a chilling recount of how Dunkirk really happened. It’s very different than how I learned it to be. This movie shows how it really was.

3. Captain Phillips (2013)

This movie was absolutely crazy. I was on the edge of my seat the whole time. It’s a true story, based on the 2009 hijacking by Somali pirates of a U.S. cargo ship. Barkhad Abdi’s acting as a Somali pirate, was amazing. The story in general is very interesting, and the film is created in such a suspenseful way.  If you’re looking for a film that constantly has you biting your nails, this is for you!


4. Inception (2010)

I still don’t understand this movie. And that’s why I’ll never get sick of it. I watch it over and over and get a different understanding of it each time. It boggles your mind and makes you think. It’s about stealing secrets through dreams and that’s about all I get from it.

It’s quite long, about two and a half hours in length. But trust me, it’s worth every minute of your time. If you are looking for a movie that really makes you think, watch Inception!

My All-Time Favourite Shows

I decided to write a post on this topic after seeing how much interest there was for it on Twitter. I ran a poll the other day and as you can see from the results below, this option was the winner. Be sure to follow my Twitter as I will be hosting more polls and would love to know which posts you’d like to see in the future.

So here it goes…. I watched all these shows on Netflix, some multiple times in fact. Let me know which shows you love, hate or haven’t watched yet! The following list is in no particular order.


the office

 I mean, how can someone NOT love this show?! The characters are hilariously awkward,     particularly Michael, and the office dynamic is incredible. I can’t even begin to tell you how many times I’ve watch every single season, and I think it’s becoming more of a problem. Nevertheless, this is one show that you must watch if you have yet to watch it. Dwight Schrute and Creed Bratton are my favourite characters, they’re too funny!

This is the kind of show I watch when I’m feeling sad or stressed. It brightens up my day and makes me laugh so much. I’m sitting here watching it right now with my best friend, Rafia (instablog), while I write this post. I’ve got to say, Joey is my favourite character in this show; mainly due to his humour and how much he loves food. I know a lot of people have watched this show, and love it as well.


breaking bad

What. A. Show. The actors are incredible, the plot is so intriguing and you cannot stop watching this show once you start. I remember watching it a few years back and I think I binge-watched it. I couldn’t get enough of it. It was interesting seeing how the main character transformed throughout the show; but I won’t give anything away, you’ll have to watch it for yourself if you have yet to do so.

This American crime show is based off a book written in 1995, and after watching this show, I put the book on hold at the library right away. The first season just recently went up on Netflix! It is such a well produced, well acted show that most definitely exceeded my expectations. I remember watching the trailer for it and was so excited, as I am taking a criminological theory course at the moment, and I felt as though I could connect my coursework with the show. Needless to say, this show was absolutely fabulous and intense, and I cannot wait for the next season to be released.


prison break

I decided to watch Prison Break a while back when a friend recommended it to me. It’s a fabulous show about an intelligent man trying to break his brother out of prison. Obviously, there’s so much more to the show than just this. Let me know if you’ve watched this show, or if you’re planning on watching it sometime soon.

Hope you enjoyed this post, thanks for reading!
