Favourite Movie

This is a bit difficult for me as there are many, many movie that I could easily call my favourite.

There are the movies that you watch 853769367645845 times and don’t get sick of them. They can be favourites. There are the movies you see that you loved but have only seen a few times – but could quote the whole thing. TOUGH QUESTION!

I honestly think I am going to have to say ‘Buffy The Vampire Slayer’ – the actual movie, not the TV series.

I know. Anyone reading this is probably giving me serious doubt on my credibility when it comes to movie reviews.

I have easily viewed ‘Buffy’ 20 times.. I love Kristy Swanson and Donald Sutherland together.. They played off each others’ characters excellently! Toss in some vampires.. Perfection!

“Buffy Summers has the lifestyle any young woman could want. Cheerleading, dating the captain of the basketball team, and copious amounts of time spent shopping with friends. She had no idea of her true calling until a mysterious man named Merrick approached her and told her that she is the Slayer; one woman called to defend the world from vampires. Reluctant to concede to the fact, Buffy soon learns that Merrick speaks the truth and so begins to take her new life seriously while trying to maintain the sense of normality her life had once been. With her best friends slowly abandoning her, Buffy finds solace in the town outcast, Pike, who knows very well the terrors that have arisen. Together, they combat the forces of the old and powerful vampire, Lothos, who has his eyes set on Buffy.” written by Vampire Sharpshooter

There you have it. My favourite movie.. Well, one of them. When my parents bought us our first DVD player many, many years ago.. My siblings and I were delighted! We ran out the next day (Boxing Day) and were looking for DVDs. I remembered seeing the 'Buffy' DVD and being drawn to it as I had watched it on TV a time or three. Being able to actually purchase it and know it now belonged to me? Amazing.

What is YOUR favourite movie?
