“Forever Movies” whilst in Isolation


Right so the plan is to get away from all the negativity around us….. you with me? …. Lets try and look at positive things, lets try and think of how we are to make things better for us, and how we are to play with things going forward… my next sets of blogs will be around this type of content, (unless good ‘ol Boris gets on my nerves again)

Very soon a hell of a lot of us will be in isolation, ( some of you may already be in isolation) and this isolation will either be 7 days or 14 days accordingly.

It sounds so perfect on the outside, no schools, no work, waking up late, staying in pj’s all day………..but for me it sounds like torture!! I cant do it, I am already loosing my head thinking of it, I love routine, I love my freedom, I love fresh air, and I love…… not having my family in my face all day…… “Absence makes the heart grow fonder” and that shizz works better for me….

So the first thing I have done is created a list of what I call ‘Forever Movies’ ( actually I don’t know if I call it that, or I have heard it somewhere) the reason why I called them forever movies is because….. well … you can watch them Forever… as in over and over and over…..and the plan is to watch one a day… minimum…

Here’s my list: (make sure you do your own)

  1. Pretty Woman (1990)

Genre: Romance/Comedy

Julia Roberts and Richard Gere. This movie is everyone’s ‘Forever Movie‘ How can it not be?!

2. Basic Instinct (1992)

Genre: Drama/Mystery

Sharon Stone and Michael Douglas. What a powerful combination. What a powerful movie. What a powerful message.

3. Indecent Proposal (1993)

Genre: Drama/Romance

Demi Moore, Robert Redford. This is a Heart Stopper.

4. Cruel Intentions (1999)

Genre: Drama/Thriller

Sarah michelle Geller, Reese Witherspoon, Ryan Phillipe, Selma Blair, Joshu Jackson. Can you get a more beautiful cast?

5. Goonies (1985)

Genre: Adventure

OK OK I know this ones a wildcard but I always remember my childhood when I watch this, so its on my list, Im not going to bother with the actors name- I dont evan know who they are. Classic film for me.

6. Big (1988)

Genre: Fantasy/ Drama

Tom hanks (he’s in isolation right now) so I will watch it in memory of him. This one usually comes on at christmas time, I am going to try and stay away from the christmas movie….. but on this occasion…. just for you Tom!

7. Con Air (1997)

Genre: Thriller/Mystery

Nicholas Cage, Steve Busceni, John Cusack. Love this movie! Always in my hit list.

8. Notting Hill (1999)

Genre: Drama/ Romance

Hugh Grant and Julia Roberts. Need I say more?

9. My Best Friends Wedding

Genre: Drama/Romance

Julia Roberts, Dermot Mulroney, Cameron Diaz. If it’s got Julia Roberts it’s a winner….

10. Four weddings and a Funeral (1994)

Genre: drama/romance

Hugh Grant, Andie Mcdowell. I think I have something for Hugh Grant, and I think I just realised it whilst doing this post.

So that’s my top 10. I chose these from like the 100’s I had, I will definately be revisiting these if I go into isolation. Along with all the Harry Potter’s obviously!

Let me know what your ‘Forever Movies’ are, I may need to add more to my list.

Stay safe

Love and regards
