Movies I've been loving

If you didn't know I am a huge movie fan, I mainly love classical films (I get a thrill out of understanding movie references) I also get a lot of inspiration from the fashion used in the film (Duh) as well as the romance and seeing how different peoples lives were back them compared to now. As much as I love classical films Horror is probably my next favourite movie genre, I'm very intrigued by the supernatural as well as there is always great fashion in horror movies, its such an unexpected element that I love! below I've listed some of my favourite movies of the moment, movies I've been watching over and over during the past few weeks. These aren't my top favourite movies but they are great and I highly recommend them !


Move over Darling (1963) :  It's a movie I recently discovered and I wish I had watched this movie sooner !  its a comedy starting Doris Day, James Garner and Polly Bergen. In the film a man looses his wife at sea and is presumed dead, After 5 years he remarries only find out his wife was rescued has returned home... while he's on his honeymoon ! Its witty and cheeky and filled with amazing fashion from start to finish. I want all the clothes Doris Day wore in this film ! Great light hearted movie that I would recommend to anyone, even if they don't like older films. (And its on Netflix!) 



The Secret Garden (1993) : Based off the novel of the same name written by Frances Hodgson Burnett (Also the writer of a Little princess, also a great movie!) Its the story of a girl who loses her parents in an earthquake while living in india. She returns to England to live on her uncles estate. He is rarely home so she is mainly cared for by the housekeepers and maids of the estate.  Due to boredom she begins to explore the property and discovers a secret garden... along with some other secrets. I've always loved this movie I remember watching it a lot growing up. I really like the way its filmed as well as costumes that convey the time period.... I mean come on the braids with the giant red bows at the end with the red slouchy beret... I die.  [Warning... the trailer is extremely cheesy lol don't let that turn you off from watching the film]


The Others (2001): The only Horror movie in this list is The Others, if you haven't seen this movie... stop what you're doing and go watch it right now! I discovered this movie a few years ago and its always one I go back to because its such a great film. It stars Nicole Kidman, who plays a mother  living with her two photosensitive children in a big dark house. As the movie progresses she becomes convinced the house they live in is haunted. An amazing film which always leaves me questioning everything when I finish watching it. (also on Netflix)


Changeling (2008) : This is the most recent movie I have on this list!  Its an amazing movie based on the true story of Christine Collins (Thats what makes this movie so compelling) The movie stars Angelina Jolie (which I'll be honest....I'm not a fan.. but I love her in this role, she did a fantastic job) Its the story of a mom who returns home from work after leaving her son home alone, Only to realize he's gone missing. A few months later her son Walter is found, to her shock the kid that stepped off the train is not her son, despite authorities telling her she's wrong and that it is indeed her son. Its a little bit slow to start (mainly for character development) but I promise stick with it till the end and you wont be disappointed. (Don't look up the real story online before watching the movie or it will ruin it, wait till after you finish watching it)



Somewhere in time (1980) : I was recently introduced to this movie by my dad, He has always loved this movie and I can see why. The beautiful costumes as well as a plot line involving "realistic" time travel makes this movie a great choice for your next movie night. The movie stars Christopher Reeve (Yes superman) which tells the story of a playwright from Chicago who travels back in time to meet an actress who's vintage portrait hangs in the hotel where he's staying. As mentioned before I appreciate the realism of the time travel which makes it seem like its totally possible (you'll find me in my room..with my eyes closed)  

I hope you liked this post, it's a little bit different than what I normally write about but I like sharing my movie interests with you, if you have any movie recommendations for me please let me know in the comments ! As well if you watch any of these movies let me know your thoughts !
