Six Movies I Will Always Re-Watch

Posted in Lifestyle

I am pretty bad when it comes to movies, I haven’t watched a lot of the classics and I have DVD’s of movies I need to watch sat around my flat begging to be watched but just sit there. Regardless of this there are a selection of movies which I can re-watch so many times without getting bored, and when I need a pick me up/ something to feel good/ or just something where I don’t need to concentrate much I whack one of these on.


I found out last summer that one of my friends hadn’t seen Grease and I have no idea how it’s physically possible for a girl in her twenties to have gone through life without experiencing this? For me this movie was a huge part of my childhood as this would get played so often at my nan’s house that I probably knew the words to the songs from this movie before anything else. Yes there are lots of flaws in this movie and the idea of changing yourself to get the guy is ridiculous but despite it’s age it stands up, the characters are addictive and the songs are amazing.


Mean Girls

Mean Girls came out in 2004 so I was 14 and the perfect age to be watching these chick flicks. I love this era of Lindsay Lohan and think this movie was a big part of my teenage years. I have re-watched this movie so many times and just can’t get bored of it from the ‘Jingle Bell Rock’ dance to the point where everyone shouts ‘You Don’t Even Go Here’, this movie is just one which makes me smile.

Nightmare Before Christmas

I’ll be talking about this movie in more depth at a later date but the Nightmare Before Christmas is my all time favourite movie and began my life long love of Tim Burton movies. I have reached the point where I can quote every single word from the movie (alongside all the songs of course) so I can only watch this movie with select people (or alone) as people tend to get annoyed but I love it. From the stop animation to Danny Elfman’s singing voice as Jack. Everything about this movie is great and I remember watching it not long after it came out when I was about 10 and not being scared but being intrigued about the word and the characters.

John Tucker Must Die

Another one just like Mean Girls I think this is one of those feel good movies which I’ll carry on watching for years to come. It came out in 2006 when I was 16 and I distinctly remember going to the cinema with my friends to see this and feeling so grown up. It’s a typical high school drama but the cast is great and the key characters are really relatable, although American high school always looks cooler than high school here in the UK. It also has a really great soundtrack including my fav ‘Dirty Little Secret’ by All American Rejects.

Edward Scissorhands

I could have picked about five other Tim Burton movies but this is probably my favourite one to just reach and put on at any point. Like you have to be in particular mood for Beetlejuice or Sleepy Hollow but Edward Scissorhands is an easy watch in my book. I love the relationship between Edward (Johnny Depp) and Kim (Winona Ryder) and I think this is such a great introduction to showing people the movies of Burton. It’s such a lovely story and shows people that you shouldn’t judge someone by how they look. Definitely one of my favourite movies.

When I talk to people and find out that they haven’t even heard of Thirteen never mind seen it I find it hard to believe as I fell in love with this movie the first time I saw it. I don’t think as a 13-year-old myself I would have seen it when it first came out in 2003, but a few years later I bought the DVD and have actually had to re-purchase it since then due to overwatching. The movie is semi-autobiographic based on Nikki Read’s life between the ages of 12 and 13 (she plays one of the lead roles), she even helped to right it alongside Catherine Hardwicke. The movie is full of alcohol, drugs, theft, self-harm and pretty much everything you wouldn’t want your kid to do but it shows the real world and the troubles that some kids can find themselves in. This was Nikki’s first role at just 15 years’ old but you’ll probably recognize her from Twilight. If you’ve not seen this movie I’d definitely recommend it.


Shouts also have to go to School of Rock/ Donnie Darko/ Beetlejuice/ Batman which are also amazing movies which I love rewatching.

What movies can you keep re-watching?

    I’ve only seen bits of Edward Scissorhands – I need to watch it in full! I love Grease and Mean Girls!

    The Nightmare Before Christmas is an all time favourite of mine too and I also really love John Tucker Must Die. I think it’s so different from other romcoms out there – some romcoms you’d consider as a guilty pleasure but this one is just that bit edgier and cooler. And part of the reason why I love it is the soundtrack too! x
