My Top 5 Favourite Films

5. Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (George Lucas, 1989)

Besides being my fifth favourite film of all time, this film is also my favourite Indiana Jones film because it has some epic moments, such as the fight scene on the tank and the story is good and enjoyable.


UK Box Office: £15m (approximately £15,088,350.74)
US Box Office: $197m (approximately $197,171,806)
4. Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back (George Lucas 1980)

I agree with all the positive reviews for this film, it's a classic. The story is memorable, the action is enjoyable and the film itself has loads of memorable moments, such as "that" moment near the end.


$18,000,000 UK Box Office: £5.5m (approximately £5,689,498.12) US Box Office: $209m (approximately $209,398,025) 

3. Aliens (James Camereon, 1986)

While I did like Avatar, I personally enjoyed James Cameron's early film, Aliens much more. It is action packed, including a few scares, the plot is great and the special effects were really good for their time.


UK Box Office: £3m (approximately £3,129,330.45)
US Box Office: $85m (approxiamately $85,160,248)

2. Inception (Christopher Nolan, 2010)

Besides being my second favourite of all time, I believe this film to be a modern classic because the plot is very complex, yet engaging, the acting is very good, with solid performances from an all star cast, including Leonardo Dicaprio and the special effects are brilliant, yet mind blowing.


$160,000,000 UK Box Office: £35m (approximately £35,264,403)
US Box Office: $288m (approximately $288,405,376)

1. The Dark Knight (Christopher Nolan, 2008)

Personally, this is my favourite film of all time. Like with Inception, I consider this film a modern classic because it pushes the boundries of Superhero films, due to it's engaging performances, such as Heath Ledger's portray of The Joker, instead of making him look like a criminal prankster, Heath Ledger made him look like a psychopath. Besides that, the story was quite complex, unusual for what you would usually see in your average Superhero movie and of course, the action is thrilling.
Budget: $185,000,000
UK Box Office: £48.6m (approximately £48,685,166)US Box Office: $533m (approximately $533,345,358)
