My Favourite Films of All Time: 50-41

 50. Trainspotting
Danny Boyle's best film is an adrenaline rush to the system that will knock you flat. Lager, Lager.

 49. The Night of the Hunter
This 50's horror is one of the most unsettling films you'll see, with a chilling performance by Robert Mitchum, and one that to this day remains as influential and memorable as ever.

48. The French Connection
With one of the best car chases ever staged and a frenetically paced plot, this is one of the most, if the most exciting films ever made. You won't know what hit you.

47. The Wizard of Oz
Who doesn't love this film? From the Yellow Brick Road to those ruby slippers, this is one of the most magical films that anyone from any age will ever see.

46. Finding Nemo
Many won't agree with me by saying that this is the best Pixar film, but I honestly don't recall any other Pixar films having so much of an effect on me than this. This was a massive part of my childhood, and still remains close to my heart.

45. Ferris Bueller's Day Off
Sure, there are funnier films, but few can be called as entertaining and clever as this one. This was perhaps the best example of John Hughes' work. He'll be dearly missed.

44. One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest
This has perhaps some of the most well-written characterisation in history, as well as astonishing performances from Jack Nicholson and Louise Fletcher. It's no wonder it won all five major Oscars.

43. Terminator 2: Judgment Day
Back in the day when James Cameron films were the most awesome thing out there, this sequel remains one of the best sequels ever made. Pure awesomeness.

42. The Social Network
The most recent film on here, David Fincher's "Facebook movie" never ceases to amaze me. In fact, it gets better every time I watch it. From the pitch-perfect performances to Aaron Sorkin's incredible screenplay, Fincher showed himself at the top of his game here. IT SHOULD HAVE WON THAT OSCAR!!

41. Y Tu Mama Tambien
Before Alfonso Cuaron did his Harry Potter film and Children of Men, he did this fantastic film which is entertaining, well acted and has a big heart to boot. And it's possibly the sexiest film ever made.


  1. You've seen so many more films than me haha, looks like I'll be watching some of these soon, but didn't entirely agree about The Social Network, found it a little boring to be honest.

  2. Fair enough, I know lots of people who did :P
