We asked some of our friends and family about their favourite film ever. This is what they said.
My favourite film ever is Back to the Future. I've always liked the idea of time travel. I like the idea that if you go back in time, there's a danger that you could change the present – and maybe not even be born, if that makes sense! That's what makes the film exciting. The soundtrack is awesome too.
My favourite film is Titanic – the devastating true story of the 'unsinkable ship' that sank to the bottom of the ocean on 15 April 1912. From the enormous sets to the stunning costumes and Leonardo DiCaprio's and Kate Winslet's incredible performances, watching Titanic is every single time a thrilling, emotional and breathtaking experience.
Saving Mr. Banks is my favourite film because it tells the story behind one of my other favourite films, Mary Poppins. It tells the story of PL Travers's (the author of the Mary Poppins books) childhood in rural Queensland in the early 1900s, and it also shows the meetings in Los Angeles in 1961 when Walt Disney tried to persuade the author to sell him the rights to her novels.
I really like a movie called Interstellar. On the surface, it's a science fiction film in which a crew of men and women go off in search of a way to save the people left on a dying planet Earth, but the ending only makes sense if you see love as a force that transcends space and time in a very tangible way – not your typical sci-fi message! I love movies that blow your mind like that.
I've always loved Blade Runner. It was made back in 1982, but it still shows you a completely believable near future. It stars Harrison Ford as a police officer who hunts and kills 'replicants' – genetically engineered humanoids that are almost impossible to tell apart from humans. The atmosphere is dark, and the future Los Angeles is decaying but beautiful. The film is about what it means to be human.
