Theatrical Tuesday – 5 Faves in Each Genre

TuesdayToday’s number is 5, which is perfect because I’ve been wanting to write this post anyway.

At the beginning of the school year, my teacher had us list our five favourite films. It felt cruel to pick only five and I had a very hard time with it. What did I pick? Well, I tried to go with a mix of the films that impressed me the most and the ones that I’ve watched time and again.

Here they are:

1. Feds
2. The Godfather
3. Gremlins
4. Dead Poet’s Society
5. Edward Scissorhands

But it’s not enough, so I’ve been wanting to do a new list of five per genre ever since. This exercise has taught me that there are so many movies I haven’t seen yet! Based on what I have seen, here they are in no particular order. Yes, some of them are technically rather awful and cheesy, but I love them anyway.
