The Prince & Me

Eyyy so I decided to watch this one again as inspiration for my book. I actually liked it a lot less than I remember. I love the main character Paige but didn’t love the romance as much. It’s still great but kinda a bit underwhelming??

Midnight Sun

I was actually crying by the end of this movie. It was actually really good?? It stars Bella Thorne and it’s basically about a girl who cannot be in the sun and there’s a romance. Its a story about discovering yourself and coming out of your shell and I actually really enjoyed it.

10 Things I Hate About You

So this is actually a weird story, don’t come at me: I thought this movie was SO overrated and thought that I’d dislike it. But if you didn’t know, I basically had a chick flick marathon so I decided to watch this one, you know because I’m older and can appreciate movies more and I actually really loved it. I love the actress and the romance was great. I love that era of films. I had a grand old time!

The Secret Garden

This movie is literally just a gem. I watched it thousands of times as a kid and wanted to watch it again and it’s just cinematic beauty at its finest. I’m sure you know what it’s about. I just love the characters and the story is beautiful and I ADORE THE GARDEN. I just love it and HIGHLY recommend.

I just,,, THIS MOVIE. It’s another I watched ages ago and remembered liking and I actually loved it even more the second time around. Its a classic teen chick flick and it’s excellent. I LOVE boarding schools. I don’t know how to describe how I feel, I just really liked it.

The Golden Compass

I was just scrolling through Netflix one day and decided I was really in the mood to watch this one again. And I did. And again I really enjoyed it! I love the setting and the world is so interesting. I love the characters and especially things with animal companions and I just had a great time.

Aladdin

I just needed to watch this again. It’s not one of my favourite fairy tales but I still really like the story. I love all the characters and the whole plot is really well done. The music is great and I love the setting.

Ice Princess

I actually don’t know why I watched this one. It’s a Disney movie about ice skating and I actually liked it? The acting isn’t brilliant but I had this urge to actually attempt skating (even though I’d probably fall on my butt…)

Two Night Stand

I truly don’t remember how I stumbled upon this movie but I like Miles Teller so I watched it. I (again) really enjoyed it. The characters had really great chemistry and I liked their relationship. I thought it was really funny and just like a random movie but quite liked it.

Chalet Girl

I remembered this one after watching Ice Princess so I watched it. I really liked the whole premise. I also really love Ed Westwick… but I overall quite enjoyed it. It made me want to try snowboarding ahah NO I’d fail. I didn’t really love the romance but really liked the characters.

Ratatouille

I just really love this movie. I think its great. I love the food and Paris and just the whole thing is adorable. Its such a weird story actually but like its great. JUST WATCH IT IF YOU HAVEN’T

Cheaper By The Dozen 1 & 2

I actually ADORE these movies. They’re really funny and I love the huge family. It’s such a great time. I actually prefer the second one (mainly because of the smol precious relationship of tiny Taylor Lautner and Alyson Stoner which melts me tbh). It’s just,,,,

Camp Rock 1 & 2

After that ^ adorable relationship I went into an Alyson Stoner craze and watched a whole bunch of movies she was in. Now this I ended up liking less than I thought I would. I love the actors, but the acting itself was just not so good. I love the music but the rest kinda got me.

Step Up 3D

I love all these movies but I decided on this one because it always sticks out to me. I actually just love it. My favourite dance is the one I call the “water dance”. But I just love all the characters, especially Moose but they’re all great. I love the actual dancing but really just all of it.

Aquamarine

I’m kinda if-fy about this movie. I love Emma Roberts but the rest is all a bit weird?? The romance is kinda weird and I’m not sure about the mermaids. It’s cool but the acting isn’t great. I don’t knowww…

Freaky Friday

I loved this movie. I thought it was excellent. I hadn’t seen it before and watched it on a whim and really loved it. It was so funny and I love all the actors and just,,, The story is great and I loved how the relationship grows between the mom and daughter and also the brother. The band was awesome and I love Chad Michael Murray! Such a great movie.

Sabrina The Teenage Witch

I again really expected nothing of this and LOVED IT. I love Sabrina and Salem. I love the characters and the magic system is so cool. The aunts are awesome and the whole movie was just so fun. Loved it!

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

I didn’t expect to go and watch this in the theater but we landed up watching it and I really enjoyed it. It was actually really impactful? It kind of touched on animal cruelty which I didn’t expect. I really love the characters and obviously the graphics are amazing and ended up really liking it. A little nerve wrecking in a few of the scenes and made me a bit scared and grip my chair (but I’m also a baby with that so).

A Walk To Remember

I have a new found appreciation for Mandy Moore and I loved this movie. It just remembered it one day and landed up watching it again. I love the romance and their relationship. The whole movie is just great and I loved it!!

Cinderella (2015)

My friend hadn’t seen this before so we obviously had to watch them. It’s just cinematic excellence. The costumes are amazing and it’s all just beautiful. I love Lily James and also Kit’s character is great. I just,,,

Beauty & The Beast (2017)

I love Emma Watson so much!! She’s just amazing. I feel the same about this as Cinderella. The costumes are beautiful and the sets are too. I love the music and its just amazing okay!!

A Wrinkle In Time

I LOVED THIS MOVIE! I thought it was so cool. I loved Meg and the boys were so cute and adorable gahhh!! The whole premise is so cool and I loved it.

Juno

This movie is so weird but in a good way? It’s actually really cool but again kind of indie I’d say? I really enjoyed the characters, especially Jennifer Garner and I don’t exactly know how to voice my feelings…

The Devil Wears Prada

This one is SO GOOD. I loved it. I love Meryl Streep and Anne Hathaway but also Emily Blunt, they’re all so amazing. It was just such a great movie and I,,, truly am the worst at feelings.

Ever After: A Cinderella Story

Ahh my friend made me watch this and I loved it. It’s an origin story to Cinderella and it’s so good. Drew Barrymore is in it and I had such a great time. I love the setting and all the costumes. I didn’t love the romance but it developed nicely and it was just done so well.

Narnia: The Lion, The Witch & The Wardrobe

I LOVE THESE MOVIES SO MUCH!!! They are so amazing and fantastic and I just love them. I love the characters and the story and Narnia is an awesome place and it’s just so beautiful I can’t even.

The Princess Diaries 2

A friend and I landed up watching them both (I’ve already talked about the first one though). I like this one but not as much as the first one. I love Mia’s story but not so much the romance (i’m set on Michael) so that kinda bums me but otherwise I liked it.

floral decoration 13Grease

I have seen this movie so many times and I ADORE THE SOUNDTRACK. But rewatching it now put me in a new light. I picked up on a few problematic issues but I still love it. I love the era and I laughed at them so much. The movie is just so great and I love it.

TOP FAVOURITES MOVIE REVIEWS

Tangled

WOW THIS MOVIE WAS SO MUCH BETTER THAN I THOUGHT. I loved it so much. The romance is so good and it’s just beautiful. I love the lantern scene! Its a lot different to the story of Rapunzel I remembered but I loved this one! It’s just so good!

Mammia Mia 1 & 2

Oh holy heck how do I cope? I’ve loved the first one for years so rewatched it in prep for the second one and I just don’t know to cope. The first is obviously excellent and the second was a roller coaster. It too was excellent but I was sobbing by the end and I just can’t even. I love it all and just HELP!!

She’s The Man

Oh wow I just LOVED THIS MOVIE SO MUCH. I really thought I’d hate it but WOW. It’s hilarious and also pure genius. SO FEMINIST. Amanda Bynes is so funny I can’t. I’ve watched it multiple times by now. I love Viola and Duke (young Channing Tatum is also great btw). SO FREAKING GOOD!!

The Incredibles 1 & 2

So I did the same, I rewatched the first in prep for going to see number 2 and I just can’t deal. The first one has always been good but the second is just so amazing and lovely and amazing and I JUST CANNOT. It’s going to be on my top 5 favourite movies of all time. I loved it so much I saw it again after a few days just because!! Like I love it (i’ll be doing a review btw). I love the characters and the superpowers and it’s all just excellent. I LOVE THESE MOVIES SO MUCH WATCH IT NOWWW

    I had the same experience as you with 10 Things I Hate About You. I liked the title but I thought it will be just some cliché teen movie. But now is one of my favorites!

  • Ilsen Leon

    Those are a lot of movies you watched! I actually am not that much of a movie person but I’m surprised that I watched most of those movies! I’ve watched 10 Things I Hate About You (which I loved and I also thought I wouldn’t like it but I loved it). I haven’t watched Midnight Sun but I have been curious about it. I’ve watched Aladdin of course but I want to watch it again. Ice Princess was such an old movie but I remember watching it and wanting to ice skate and then I realize I’m terrible at it. Ratatouille is one of my favorite Disney movies and I definitely need a rewatch after going to Paris. I’m also interested in Chalet Girl and I never heard of it but it sounds familiar. I have not watched Cheaper By The Dozen but now I really want to watch it. Camp Rock 1 is good and Camp Rock 2 is ehh but I prefer High School Musical. I feel like I’ve seen Aquamarine before but I think H20 (the TV show about mermaids) is better. I’ve been meaning to rewatch Freaky Friday for the longest time!! I watched Beauty and the Beast but I don’t like Emma Watson’s auto tune singing. I definitely prefer the original. The Devil Wears Prada is a great movie and I definitely need to rewatch it soon! Narnia was such a good movie and I need to watch it again! I actually liked the romance in Princess Diaries 2. It’s super cute. I always liked that movie more. Grease is ehh but I love the soundtrack. TANGLED IS BEAUTIFUL. I need a rewatch of all Disney movies. She’s The Man was really funny. I just remember the tampon scene. Incredibles 2 was one of the movies I watched this month and it was so good!!! I haven’t watched Incredibles 1 in such a long time but the second one was just way better.
    I actually watched a lot of movies this month and I’m very surprised. I watched Dr. Strange, The first Avengers, Thor, Captain America: Winter Soldier (a masterpiece), 13 Going on 30, Cheetah Girls 2, Love, Simon (again because it’s that good), Scooby Doo (just because), Standing Ovation (which is terrible. Don’t watch it), and Stuart Little 1 and 2. I hope to watch some of the movies on your list this month.

      WOW! I’m so glad you’ve seen most of theseb😂 DISNEY IS AWESOME. And I just ahhh love all movies okay 😍 Incredibles & She’s The Man is amazing I can’t even. I see you went through a marvel craze ;). I love Stuart and really should rewatch 13 Going On 30. I also love Scooby Doo. Ooh yes please do watch some of them!! Xx

      • Ilsen Leon

        Yea my friends are trying to catch me up on Marvel since we watched Infinity War together. But yes Disney movies are amazing and I want to watch Stuart Little again even though I just watched it. It’s just so pure.
