10. The Outsiders
The Outsiders is an older movie and book, but that does not mean that it is bad. After I watched this movie about a year ago, I thought that it was a good movie. I then found out that it was based on a book, which made me curios as to how the book was. The book was as good or even better than the movie. My teacher was the one who loaned me the book, after I saw it sitting on her desk in class one day. I walked over and asked her if she had read this book and she said, “yes, this is actually one of my favorites,” and after that she let me read it and I fell in love with the book and movie. The book by S.E Hinton was a very well written book and made you want to go back in time to 1965. The movie however was hard to beat because it had young Matt Dillon, Rob Lowe, Tom Cruise, and many more cute guys 😉 The story line is so sweet and sad at the same time that there is no doubt that you won’t love it!! STAY GOLD PONYBOY, STAY GOLD
9. The Help
The Help is for sure one of those movies that you could watch 10 times and still cry every single time you see it. The book, though, is even better. I think the book is so well written and puts the story in such an amazing point of view. I will never get tired of this book or movie. The people who were apart of the movie did such an inspiring job and made the story come to life in an incredible way. This heart wrenching movie and book is one that will never get old and will forever be appreciated by society. No matter what type of person you are, you will love this movie and I know that for sure.
8. 13 Hours
13 Hours is one of those types of movies that will make you be on the edge of your seat while watching. I have seen this movie maybe 3 or 4 times and it is for sure one of my favorite movies. The incredible story that the movie was based on is told in the New York Times Bestselling Novel. The author and director did an amazing job with both the book and movie. Even if you might not be a soldier, movie type of person, this movie is one that is worth watching. The actors and actress will blow your mind away in the way they portray this movie, and they definitely did not miss a beat when basing it off of the book. I love this movie so much and it is for sure a tear jerker :((
7. ALL THE HARRY POTTER MOVIES AND BOOKS
Many of you are probably thinking that this is so basic and we all knew that you were going to put these movies on the list. My opinion on that is that these movies and books are to amazing to not give them recognition. Even though I have not read all the Harry Potter books, (yes, you may gasp in shock) I still believe that they deserve to be put on my favorite movie list. Most of you have seen the movies or read all the books, so you will know how good they are and how much credit J.K Rowling deserves. As for all my big Harry Potter fans out there, (and that one person, you know who you are;) ) I LOVE YOU GUYS SO MUCH.
6. Dear John
A lot of you may know who Nicholas Sparks is or maybe even just heard of him, but I would just like to say that all of his books, and the movies based off of his books, are so good. I have always been a fan of romantic movies and Nicholas Sparks stories make incredible romantic movies. Dear John is one of Nicholas Sparks stories that is just amazing and different from all the other romantic stories. When I found out about this movie and that Channing Tatum was in it I was overly excited about it. I am a huge Channing Tatum fan and him being in the army in this movie was a plus. I definitely recommend this movie to guys and girls because it is not just another romantic movie, but it is a well written story come to life in a movie.
Yes, I realize that I only have the first movie poster and book cover uploaded, and that there are many other books and movies, but I just love the first movie and book compared to the others. The other movies are good and so are the other books, don’t get me wrong, but I just think that the first one deserves recognition. This movie was one of the most highly anticipated movies ever and the book that was based on it was even better. I think that Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson, and all the other cast members, did an amazing job portraying these books in the movie series. I am definitely more of a Team Edward fan just because I am a Robert Pattinson fan, even though some people may be Team Jacob. Either way, I think that this movie is one that I could watch over and over again.
4. The Divergent Series
Before I start, I would like to say that I have not read any of these books, yet. I have really wanted to read them, I just haven’t gotten around to it. Also, there are more books than shown on the images above and hopefully soon will be more movies. From the ratings that the books have gotten, I recommend reading them even if you have already seen the movies. The movies, though, are very well portrayed and I really do love them. Shailene Woodley and Theo James ( who is so attractive!!) did such a good job in the movies, and because they played those characters, it made me love the series even more.
3. The Last Song
I am a big fan of Liam Hemsworth, so when he was cast for this movie it made the book 100x better. Don’t get me wrong, Miley Cyrus did good in this movie too. The book though was really good, even though the movie is a close tie to it. I loved the movie when I first saw it and I still watch the movie to this day, and love it even more each time I see it. If you have not seen this movie and you like romantic movies, this is one of my favorite to recommend. Also if you get the chance, I would go and pick up the book, because it is well worth reading too.
2. Everything Everything
LET ME JUST SAY THAT I LOVE THIS MOVIE AND BOOK. When this book first came out, I read it like a week after it released. I fell in love with this book from the first page and I even remember telling my best friend about how much I loved the book, and that she needed to read it (I am still mad though that she hasn’t read it 🙂 ) right now. When I found out about the movie, and when I watched the trailer, the amount of excitement that I felt was unexplainable. I definitely had high expectations for this movie and trust me, the movie did not disappoint me. I could watch this movie over and over and still cry each time I see it. I recommend seeing this movie with your best friend, like I did, so you can both get excited and emotional together while watching it.
1. Perks of Being a Wallflower
Some of you may know me personally or have met me before, but what a lot of you may know is that this is one of my favorite movies of all time. From the beginning of this movie, I knew that it was going to become my favorite movie. Reading this book was very good and I was super excited to read it, but I have to say the movie was better, shocker right? The movie just pictures high school in such a true way and what this movie is trying to tell people is so touching. Also a plus to this movie, is its soundtrack!! A lot of movies can have good soundtracks, but this one has a very good soundtrack. It is a mix of 2000’s music to 70’s music and overall it is just perfect. Also Emma Watson is an amazing actress and seeing her in this movie made me so happy, because I love her so much. However, Logan Lerman made this movie the movie it is today and there is no one that could do a better job in this movie than he did. Overall, this was my number one because of the story line and people who made it so good.
