Favorite Movies/Directors

Alrighty. Hello blog readers *waves*

Recently I was asked on twitter what were some of my favorite movies and film makers. I’ve answered this lightly on my ‘about me’ pages throughout the years and every so often I change my answer but I decided for once and for all answer it here! 😀

*Caution* I might forget some movies and film makers and as time goes by the list of films I consider my favorite will only increase. 🙂

Also please keep in mind these are some of my FAVORITE films but there are SOOOOO MANY other films that I also love but I didn’t add to this last.

Animation:

  • Monsters Inc

  • Toy Story
  • Shrek
  • Meet the Robinsons

These are my top animated favorite movies but I also love all of Disney’s Pixar films and 99% of every disney animation film, from Peter Pan and Emperor’s New Groove, Stitch, to Brave and Frozen. Literally anything Disney I LOVE ❤

Other:

Most likely I like any disney original film before 2007. Meaning Cheetah Girls, Zenon, Johnny Capahala, etc.. I was a kid back then and those were my fav movies and if I watch them today they will only give me great memories.

Favorite Film Makers:

  • George Lucas
  • Steven Spielberg
  • Pete Docter
  • Lee Unkrich
  • Kathryn Bigelow
  • Andrew Adamson
  • Stephen J. Anderson
  • Ridley Scott
  • Brian Percival
  • Niel Burger

I could list tons more and I haven’t even started on screenwriters which that is whole other category.

Well then I know I could list loads and loads of movies and filmmakers but there is only so much I can fit into a blog post, right?

Why are these your favorite movies?

  • The main thing that I usually say is story. STORY STORY STORY. Is what drives me to watch a movie, if the story looks interesting then I’m up for it (that is why I watch book to movie adaptations cause I love the stories).
  • The second thing: It transports me to another world. Literally when I watch these movies I forget my problems and focus on the characters and their world even if it’s fantasy or reality. If a movie can take me out of this world and be momentarily transported to another world then its a gem. (another reason why I freaking LOVE Narnia so much)

Why are these your favorite directors?

  • One way or another all these directors had to push past criticism and doubt (I’m sure like many others). Also because they believe in the stories they want to tell.
  • Particularly you’ll see a lot of animated directors in that list, it’s because they have to stretch their imagination to create a believable world within the virtual reality and I absolutely love when people use their creativity to tell a story. I love Disney and Pixar because everyday they are training their people to always think out of the box when it comes to retelling an old story, or coming up with a new one while maintaing and bringing out their inner child.

Well hopefully that answers that so now you guys know a bit of what I like, I’ll probably be updating it every time I remember a new film or director that I love.

Anyway Happy Movie watching!!!
