Day 21: A movie no-one would expect you to love

Before sports anime came into my life, there was a sports movie I was pretty into; Moneyball. I couldn’t tell you much about it now, other than Brad Pitt manages a baseball team and Jonah Hill is there, but at the time I was super into Moneyball. I even tried reading the book, but it turns out when you know nothing about baseball, it’s much easier to get the gist from a film rather than a super in depth book about it.

Day 10: Your favourite director

I’ve alluded to this in a previous post, but my favourite director is Wes Anderson.

I just love everything about his films. They’re whimsical without being ridiculous, funny, heartwarming. He hasn’t yet made a film I don’t like. I love his aesthetic too, as do most people. It helps massively that his cast generally seem to be some of my favourite actors.

Big shout out also to Christopher Nolan, whose work I love immensely also.

Day 1: What is your favourite movie?

For as long as I can remember (well… since about 1993 I suppose), my favourite movie has always been Jurassic Park. 

Jurassic park

Jurassic Park kickstarted my first obsession, dinosaurs. I have really fond memories of visitng the Natural History Museum as a child, and I had anything dinosaur I can get my hands on. I remember before Jurassic Park came out on video, I had the ‘Making Of’ video, and I watched it constantly, even though as a 4 year old, most of it more than likely went over my head.

With an incredible use of effects, favourite practical over CGI, Jurassic Park is a movie which still stands up today, some 27 years later, and still looks amazing now.
