The end is only the beginning

It has been said that something as small as the flutter of a butterfly's wing can ultimately cause a typhoon halfway around the world. - The Butterfly Effect
 So I realised as I was getting the blogs out for today, that I didn't make a list of 100 but a list of 50 movies! Yes, I know, I'm a genius. XD This means, we're already nearing the end. Here is n to t (which more t's to follow). 

As always, comment away! =) 


31. Now and Then – Another childhood favourite. While it’s very much a film about teenagers, it’s also a film about self-discovery and growing up. Plus it’s set in the 1970s so it’s got a great movie score and just leaves you feeling happy and wanting to call all your childhood friends. ^_^

32. Once – They call this film the “modern musical”. I absolutely love it, but then I love the soundtrack of the film. It’s a film about two musicians who’ve had their fair share of heartache and they sing each other their songs as they record an album in a studio. If you like folky-type music, you’ll love this movie. I’d highly recommend it anyway. You’ll know within the first five minutes if you’ll enjoy the film or not.


33. Patch Adams – I just love this film so, so much! It portrays human interaction, fear, love, and grief in such a real way, it’s a very un-Hollywood, believable story. Not least so as it’s actually based on a true story. Starring Robin Williams as a very intelligent man who signs himself into a mental institution after having suicidal thoughts, this film portrays his journey to becoming a doctor when he discovers what he really wants to do in life is help people. Definitely a must-see movie! – How many fingers do YOU see?


34. Philadelphia – A great movie fighting justice! Being a very open and very anti-discrimination kind of person, this one speaks to me deeply. I can’t stand people who hate for the sake of hating, especially when it’s based on lifestyle decision and/or appearance. So if you haven’t seen it, watch Tom Hanks play a very strong homosexual lawyer who takes on his boss in court after getting fired because he’s got HIV. Very powerful! 


35. Remember Me – This movie oddly doesn’t seem to have gotten a lot of media coverage, even though it’s got Robert Pattison in it. Now, if you don’t like Robert Pattison, PLEASE don’t let that put you off this movie. It’s a beautiful, heart-wrenching story about two young adults who find each other and start dealing with their past. Oh and it’s got a big “NO WAY!!!” moment in the end that will leave you screaming at the TV screen – just so you can’t say I didn’t warn you! If you haven’t seen it, go watch it NOW NOW NOW!


36. Serendipity – “The occurrence and development of events by chance in a happy or beneficial way” or if you use the definition from the movie “a fortunate accident”, Serendipity is the story of a man and a woman who have a chance encounter and then can’t stop thinking about each other. The only way they will find each other again is if she finds a one dollar bill with his number or if he finds the book in which she left her number. Will they find each other before it’s too late? Only one way to find out – watch the film! ;)


37. Sixth Sense – A film that if you haven’t seen it yet, has probably been spoiled for you already. If you’ve not seen it and not heard of it, go and watch it as soon as possible before anyone gets the chance to ruin it for you! =P I definitely enjoyed it and was yet again not expecting M. Night Shyamalan’s ending.


38. The Breakfast Club – Although I love a lot of cheesy 80s movies, this one stuck with me particularly. No matter what generation you grew up in, this film will remind you of the struggles of trying to find yourself as a teenager, as you watch different people from different stereotypical high school groups realise that really they’re not all that different after all.


39. The Butterfly Effect – This film asks the question of what would happen if we could go back and change our life. The answer? Well, simply put, things will never turn out perfect. A movie that will make you re-evaluate your life and hopefully help you get it right the first (and sadly only) time round.


40. The Dark Knight – Anyone who knows me, knows I’m obsessed with Batman. Well, my personal favourite Batman movie is this one! While I do like most of the other ones too, including the older ones, to me nothing can top Heath Ledger’s performance as The Joker. Whether you’re a Batman fanatic like me or not, this film is worth a watch!
