Movie Bucket List

I am a self- professed movie junkie. Although, I seem to know about many films but I haven’t actually watched many.


Around the end of 2013, I created a movies bucket list as the end of a hectic and stressful year coming to a close meant I could finally binge into the realm of film.

As you can see I still have a long way to go before I even get close to checking everything off.


Currently watching: Midnight in Paris

Next up: (Most likely) Finding Mr Right. After seeing Tang Wei in Late Autumn (which is now one of my favourite movies of all time!) with Hyun Bin (K drama fans should appreciate this) I wanted to watch some of Wei’s other works.


I’ve thoroughly enjoyed all the movies I’ve watched so far on my list but here are some gems I’d like to highlight. Note: In brackets I’ve included words that come to mind associated with each film)


-Lost in Translation (indie, artsy vibes, drama, culture differences, isolation, friendship)

-Ginger and Rosa (friendship, drama, history, cold war, coming of age)

-Intouchables (drama, comedy, inspirational, French, class differences)

-American beauty (drama, satire, love, conformity, identity, materialism)
