10.Herbie Fully Loaded (Maggie & Herbie)
Maggie Peyton, the first Peyton to graduate from college, receives a graduation present from her dad and as she’s about to get a 250Z, she instead receives a Volkswagen Bug (Herbie) and Herbie takes her for a ride. One of those film that will divide people as some will like this and some don’t, it also a nice and charming film and it like an underdog type of film and overall, this is cute and enjoyable, Lindsay Lohan is convincing alongside with the CGI/SFX in this likeable film.
9.The King’s Speech (King George VI & Lionel)
Britain’s Prince Albert must ascend the throne as King George VI, but he has a speech impediment and his wife hires Lionel Logue, an Australian actor and speech therapist, to help him overcome his stammer. For me personally it’s their chemistry that made this film rather good and it got an all – star cast, this is a slow burner film that is silently effective, it is a well – made film with a brilliant story and it might not be ground-breaking, but it still watchable and it will draw you in.
8.Terminator 2: Judgment Day (The Terminator & John)
Sent back from a dystopian 2029 where the cold machines have conquered the entire world to 1984 Los Angeles, the indestructible cyborg assassin known as the “Terminator” over 10 years past he has to protect a teenager named John Connor. The visual and the CGI/SFX is truly outstanding and it is perfectly paced, the set pieces are generally exciting and a thrill ride film that is certainly entertaining, the chemistry is there with the main two lead, it will surprise you as well.
7.How The Grinch Stole Christmas (Grinch & Cindy Lou Who)
Rejected by the Whos as a child and he was bullied by the townsfolks so he lives seclusion on a mountaintop home, little Cindy Lou Who the daughter of Lou and Betty, believes that there is good in the Grinch and become unlikely friends. Not suitable for cynical type of people and Jim Carrey is unrecognisable, it also an important film for kids as it deals with an anti-bullying message and that does work, it is colourful and vibrant as this is a well – meaning film.
6.Burke And Hare (William Burke & William Hare)
A black comedy about two 19th century grave robbers who find a lucrative business providing cadavers for an Edinburgh medical school. Simon Pegg and Andy Serkis is hilarious in this film and it is generally funny, the acting is totally convincing and it didn’t take itself too seriously and that is the key to this film, it can be slightly gory and if you get past that, this is a memorable film.
5.Zootropolis (Judy & Nick)
Judy Hopps has had the dream of being the first bunny police officer since she was a kid, and when she moved to Zooptopia a city where animals live in harmony, she partners a cynical con artist fox named Nick Wilde. Fantastic looking animation film and the vocal in this film is superb and spot on, this is generally funny and heartfelt and it never feel forced plus this is easy to follow. It also clever plus totally unpredictable and it is a charming and a feel-good film.
4.Gran Torino (Walt & Thao Lor)
Walt Kowalski is a widower who holds onto his prejudices despite the changes in his Michigan neighbourhood and the world around him, when his neighbour Thao Lor a young Hmong teenager under pressure from his gang member cousin, tries to steal his Gran Torino, Kowalski sets out to reform the youth. A slow burner film that is quietly powerful and the chemistry between the two star is superb, the story is brilliant and it deals with the culture aspect, it will move you from start to finish.
3.Ratatouille (Remy & Alfredo)
Remy is a rat, constantly risking life in an expensive French restaurant because of his love of good food, as well as a desire to become a chef, So does Alfredo, a hapless garbage boy Alfredo Linguini who accidentally fouls the soup, Remy throws in some ingredients, the soup is a success and Linguini’s career as a chef is born. Personally this is suitable for all ages and a family viewing film, it also about chasing your dream and I’m sure people will connect to that message, it also suitable for a rainy day and this is pure escapism plus this is heartfelt.
2.A Man Called Ove (Ove & Parvaneh)
Ove, an ill – tempered, isolated retiree who spends his days enforcing block association rules and visiting his wife grave, When pregnant Parvaneh and her family moves into the terraced house opposite and accidentally backs into Ove’s mailbox it turns to be an unexpected friendship. One of those film that will leaves you a lasting impression on you as the ending is superb, the acting is outstanding and it never gets too overcomplicated with the flashback element, the story is there and this film is about life in general and it will touch people heart.
1.Up (Carl & Russell)
As a boy, Carl Fredricksen wanted to explore South America and find the forbidden Paradise Falls. About 64 years later he gets to begin his journey, Russell, an overeager 8-year-old Wilderness Explorer who has never ventured beyond his backyard, is in the wrong place at the wrong time at Carl’s front porch. The world’s most unlikely duo reaches new heights. One of the best Pixar films as it got a multi-layered story, there is an emotional aspect but it never feels forced and the characters are great, it is funny and charming and it is suitable for all ages.
