Quick 5 :: Favourite Movies You Own

Ange's quick five challenge this week is to share 5 movies you love that you own.

This was trickier than I expected - I felt like we mostly have tv series on DVD rather than films, but I could have named 5 Kirsten Dunst movies* I love that I own, let along having to choose from our whole collection!

Here's what I came up with:

Bring It On and 10 Things I Hate About You - I LOVE teen movies, and these are probably two of the very best out there.

Romeo and Juliet - Really very nearly a teen movie too! I was obsessed with Romeo and Juliet as a teenager (I had pictures of Leo from the masked party scene all over my school books!) and I think it is really beautifully shot and just lovely to watch.

Crackers - An Australian Christmas film, I think Crackers is hilarious. I had to include it because I am so excited to have got my hands on the DVD after searching for it for a couple of years.

Italiensk for Begyndere (Italian for Beginners) - I have quite a few Danish films on DVD, but this is probably my very favourite. It is classic funny but sad Danish Dogma film at its best. (It is also not too hard to find in stores, if you're interested!)

Oooh, that was tricky Ange!! I had at least 5 more I wanted to include, and I didn't even include the Star Wars trilogy which are my absolute favourite most loved films of all time ever, and we own several different copies of, so it goes without saying!

I'd love to hear everyone else's favourite movies that you own - pop over to GnomeAngel to share them with us!!


*fyi they would be Bring It On, Get Over It, Marie Antoinette, Virgin Suicides and Drop Dead Gorgeous ;o)


  1. I'm totes surprised you didn't pick that fantastic movie you starred in, "27 Dresses".

  2. OMG is that your DVD collection in the background??? I thought we had a collection but yours looks MASSIVE!

    I love 10 Things - love it! Such a shame Heath's not with us any more. I would have loved to have seen more rom com's from him.

    There's a few on your list that I've not seen or heard of before, I'm going to check them out.

    I'm so glad you're playing along. I'm going to have to think of a "hard" one next week... ;)

    I'm bummed I couldn't make Brown Owls this month, esp. given I missed last months. I want to see how your embroidery is going!

    Now I just have to hope that April's meeting isn't on when we're on holidays again. ;)

    Hope you had an awesome weekend!

  3. haha I do have 27 dresses!! It was also on the short list! I love when they are singing along to Elton John at the bar!

    That is part of our DVD collection in the background - it is outrageous really!

  4. I heartily endorse your Kirsten Dunst focus, as well as the ludicrous numerousness of DVDs :) Looks like you might even have me beat!


Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment! Have a nice day =)
