So let’s talk about movies. A good movie is something we all love. Whether we want some time for ourselves or to spend it with our friends and family, we choose a movie to keep us company. I have to say, my favourite time of the day is when I get to be in my bed and watch something.
Now that you know that, let me show you the movies I always go to:
Grease is probably my favourite movie of all time. It’s a musical which came out in 1978, directed by Randal Kleiser. It stars John Travolta (Danny) and Olivia Newton-John (Sandy), which had a summer love until Sandy went back to Australia, both thinking they will never meet again. What they didn’t know is that Sandy would not return to Australia, but remain there and enroll at Rydell.
The two lovers meet again, but things aren’t as beautiful as it was that summer, though they still loved each other.
Besides the plot, this movie has the best soundtrack ever. ‘Hopelessly Devoted to You’, Sandy’s song about Danny actually earned an Oscar nomination at the 51st Academy Awards.
Knives Out (2019)
Knives Out is the best mystery-crime movie I’ve ever watched. It has everything you need, from suspense and doubt to actors fitting their characters just the way you imagined. Rian Johnson wrote the screenplay and also directed the movie, which stars Christopher Plummer, a successful writer found dead. His housekeeper Fran, played by Edi Patterson, finds him with the knife in his hands.
The case would have been closed, but the arrival of a famous detective changed the situation. He was delivered a news story about the suicide which also came with a lot of money, so he wants to know what actually happened and who is so sure that it wasn’t a suicide.
Though I now know what happened, it came as a big surprise the first time and it still leaves me amazed, while also reminding me of Agatha Christie’s Poirot.
Crazy Stupid Love (2011)
Crazy Stupid Love is a romantic comedy directed by Glenn Ficarra and John Requa. It stars Steve Carell (Cal), as a middle-aged man heartbroken after his wife divorces him. To get over his loss, his new friend Jacob, played by Ryan Gosling, helps him to have a better appearance and teaches him how to pick up women.
While Cal is living his new life, Jacob meets a woman which he feels a real connection. You’ll be surprised how often Cal’s and Jacob’s lives collided and how the story ends.
It’s the perfect combination between an amazing story and great actors which you’ll never get tired of.
