Lately, I’ve been in the type of mood where all I want to do is cuddle up with a cup of tea and watch my favourite films. From this, I’ve realised that there are quite a lot of films that I would consider my comfort films hence why I am doing a second post. I’ll probably have more to do another post too at some point. I mean you can never have too many comfort films right?
Angus Thongs and Perfect Snogging (2008)
I used to be obsessed with this. So much so that I remember watching it when I was like 13 and crying because I wanted a boyfriend. That’s probably really embarrassing to admit but I’m fine with that.
If you didn’t fancy Aaron Taylor Johnson back when this came out, you clearly never saw this film. He was everyone’s dream boy back then and honestly he probably still is now.
Now that I live in Brighton I love this film even more as some of it was filmed in Brighton but mostly in Eastbourne. Which for anyone who doesn’t live in the UK is right next to Brighton.
I really, really want to watch this film right now but I can’t find it anywhere online that I don’t have to pay an additional fee. Looks like I’m going to have to buy the DVD from somewhere.
Synopsis: An eccentric but loveable teenage girl maintains a diary about the ups and downs of being a teenager and tries to overcome the trials and tribulations of growing up.
Starring: Georgia Groome, Aaron Taylor Johnson
Wild Child (2008)
An absolute teen classic, I can’t believe I didn’t mention this on the film post in this series.
I actually remember going to see this in the cinema way back when it came out and I still love it just as much. It’s so very British and honestly, it’s rare to find a teen film that isn’t set in America.
Once again I am going to look like I was completely boy crazy as a teen (I really wasn’t) but Alex Pettyfer is so ridiculously swoon-worthy in this. Who wouldn’t love this film?
This is another film that I want to watch again soon and thankfully it’s on Netflix (I’m pretty sure I have the DVD too) so I can actually watch it.
Synopsis: A rebellious Malibu princess is sent off to a strict English boarding school by her father. Unwilling to accept the strict regime, she decides to misbehave, in the hope of being dismissed from school.
Starring: Emma Roberts, Alex Pettyfer
Love, Rosie (2014)
I spoke about this film a few days ago in a best friends to lovers films post and yes I’m talking about it again.
Even though this is pretty sad at times I absolutely love this film. Sam Claflin is the rom-com king and I will die on that hill. Again with the worry of looking boy-crazed, I am swooning over Sam Claflin just like every other male lead in all of the films mentioned.
Please be aware that the attractiveness of the actors is not what I base my opinions of these films on. I’m not that shallow. I would like to also point out that I find Lily Collins just as or possibly even more attractive than Sam Claflin so there it is.
This is a little more mature than the other films mentioned so do be aware of that if you are less than 16 I’d say. Nothing too graphic though so don’t worry just lots more mature themes.
I’m having that issue where I love something so much that I don’t actually know what to say about it. Does anyone else have that or is it just me?
Synopsis: Rosie and Alex have been friends since childhood and cannot imagine themselves as a couple. However, when they head in different directions, they realise that they are made for each other.
Starring: Lily Collins, Sam Claflin
