What's your favourite film?

Man in cinema

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.

My favorite movie is Hachi: A Dog's Tale. I really like this movie, it makes me cry every time when I watch it. The story about a dog named Hachi -   japan breed. Every day that dog follow his owner to the train station in the morning, by the way owner used the train to go at the university, where he worked as professor and in the evening dog come to train station and wait his owner.
Unfortunately, dog's owner died at the work and the come to train station and wait his owner every day and it continued several years until the dog died.
It's tragic movie about loyalty of dog to his owner.

How amazing movie! I love it too. At the final the citizens of the community made a statue of Hachi, in the place where he waited the person who take care of him.

Hi aiszhuma and Nusly Martinez,
Hachi sounds like such a moving film. I'm sure I would cry too if I watched it.
Is it a true story?

Hi everyone! My favourite movie ever is Breaking the Waves of Lars von Trier. I even have called my cat with name Lars so much I love all movies of von Trier. Breaking the Waves is so heartbreaking. It is about simple life and human nature. Every time I watch it I am crying. And my husband is crying too.

Decide my favourite film is really hard. I like watch movies and I watch a lot but I cannot decide. Probably the best film that I watch recently is Encanto of Disney. I think that it is the best because I love the story, characters and the lesson that the movie give us.

Hi everyone! I´m Nusly...Entertainment! I love to watch movies and series too. I´ve lately changed to Korean Dramas, the actors and actresses have incredible performances in short plot, some of them have sixteen chapters- about historical, romantic, science fictions, crime, comedy with soundtrack, sets are incredible, some of my family members and I enjoy them. But to me the main problem is only a few of them are spoken or translated to English.

My favorite actor is a British man called Liam Neeson, his main performances movies that I saw are Non-stop, Honest Thief, Venganza Trilogy, Sneyder´s List and other I can´t remember now.

“Notting Hill” is one of my favorite movies.
I love that movie! It’s just surreal but beautiful love story.
As you already know, the movie is set in Notting Hill, London.
I love to see the streets, shops and people of the town.
and I also like two main characters. Their acting was great.
I’m very sorry that I can‘t find such a nice romantic movie these days.

My favorite film is "White chicks", I think I have seen it more than five times and I always have fun. It is a combination of action, comedy, and investigation of these two agents, who pose as two wealthy blondes to catch the wrongdoers.

My favorite film is "Star Trek" It is a really good movie, the first time it was being streamed, I couldn't finish watching because I needed to go to school the next day. I love it because science fictions is my favorite type of film, also because I love space shuttles, rocket launches and space events.

My favorite movie is Inception. It's a science finction film. I like science movie. This film very important movie because The possibility of what is described in the movie is a debate. ( This sentence I used translate :) Also Leonardo Di Caprio acting is very good...

Hi tutaysalgir,

I haven't seen Inception, but I've heard of it and it sounds really interesting. Is the concept that the main character can enter other people's dreams? 

I also really like Leonardo Di Caprio as an actor. I think I'll have to watch this film sometime soon!

Best wishes,

Jo
