Top Ten Tuesday: Favourite Movies/TV Shows

Top Ten Favourite Movies or TV Shows! (can break it down to top ten favorite romance movies or comedy shows etc. etc.)

I love TV! Yes, yes I do. I also adore movies. So this week's topic, is pretty great. I've divided things up this week, and have chosen my top five TV shows, and top five movies. Can it be done? Top Ten Tuesday is hosted over at The Broke and Bookish.

TV Shows:

1) New Girl

This show is hilarious! There are so many great one liners. I find that I have to pause the show when I start laughing, so I won't miss anything. This show is just SO ridiculous sometimes. I love it! 

2) Supernatural

I have loved this show from the very beginning. Through the good and the bad (season seven). But I have stuck by it. Basically because I'm emotionally invested to the Winchesters. Those boys are my loves. 

3) Gilmore Girls

I started watching Gilmore Girls a little later. I want to say around season three. I don't know why. But this show was great. Even now, seven years after the show has ended, I find myself rewatching episodes and missing the banter.  

4) Doctor Who

Doctor Who is seriously the best show out there. I geek out majorly when it comes to this show. It's embarrassing... but really I don't care. I love this show. I discovered it in March 2013, and have since become completely obsessed! 

5) True Blood

It feels very weird to have True Blood right after Doctor Who (it's almost like they shouldn't know each other), but whatever. I have had a love hate relationship with True Blood. But realistically, I could rewatch this show, over and over. It's so ridiculously stupid, but kind of addicting at the same time. 


1) Dracula

The 1992 version of Bram Stoker's Dracula is one of my favourite movies. I don't know what this says about me, but I absolutely loved this film. Gary Oldman is absolutely brilliant! I find this to be a truly epic love story. 

2) The Great Gatsby 

This is the most recent addition to my movie favourites. I absolutely love Leonardo DiCaprio, and I thought he was brilliant as Jay Gatsby. Absolutely amazing. I really liked the modern twist of this classic tale. Great film.

3) Interview with the Vampire

I will be the first to tell you, that I am not a fan of Vampires. This is mostly because most vampire stories these days go against everything I know about vampires. The vampires of the 90s are where it's at. Interview with the Vampire is my all time favourite movie. Brad Pitt in  1994...whewwww.

4) Zombieland 

I don't do zombies. I don't like them, I think they are stupid. However, this movie was fantastic! It has a bunch of great things, Emma Stone, Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson. I just remember having a good laugh with this one. 

5) The Princess Bride

I was old(er) when I first saw this movie. I think it's only been a couple of years. But it has quickly become one of my favourites. I love this movie! It's funny and endearing and romantic. This movie is referenced so many times.

Well, there you have it. My hodge podge mix of of favourites. This list was harder to come up than I thought it would be. What are some of your favourite? I am always looking for new TV shows and movies. 

~Happy Reading Everyone!

  1. Sweet! I watch and love 4/5 of the TV shows listed (fell off of True Blood awhile ago) and am totally on board for your movies too, especially Zombieland. Hands down one of my favorite movies ever. Whenever it's on TV, the worlds stops for me haha.

  2. The Great Gatsby is also on my list and Gilmore Girls will always be my favorite TV show.

  3. The Princess Bride! I love that movie! :D I like New Girl a lot, too - it's so much fun, isn't it? :)

    Great list!

  4. So many great picks! Gilmore Girls and New Girl both made my list this week and that scene from Supernatural is like my favorite scene ever. =)

  5. I really need to watch The Great Gatsby after recently finishing the book. I adore New Girl :-)

  6. My sister watched The Great Gatsby and she said it was awesome. She has asked me watch it and read the book.

  7. Hahaha agreed on New Girl. My favourite is "I'm not even sure I know how to read. I think I just memorised a bunch of words." Oh Nick. We are the same you and I.

  8. Gilmore Girls is amazing! And New Girl is pretty funny too :)
    Great list!

  9. I've stepped away from tv and movies for so long that I need some new recommendations. Thanks for sharing these. I'm taking notes today. I'm seeing a lot of support for New Girl...must check it out.

    And, since I'm not really in a position to recommend tv or movies, I decided to venture off on my own this week and post about mood-boosting books: Be-Happy Books.

  10. Some great choices! I also chose Supernatural, almost chose True Blood, and I do love New Girl, especially Nick. Can't wait to see the movie coming out, Let's Be Cops.
    Check out my Top 10

  11. I really need to see the new Gatsby! This is a great list :)

  12. Anyone who likes Doctor Who is good in my book. :)

  13. I discovered Doctor Who in May 2013. It's taken over my life. The only other similar obsession I have is Harry Potter.

  14. yea for Gilmore girls and supernatural.

    Oh, and zombieland. ha it's one of the few go to movies my husband and I will put on at night to fall asleep to..

  15. GILMORE GIRLS! <3 And New Girl is great, too. I've been wanting to start Supernatural but the first episode scared me so much I couldn't continue, haha!

    1. I can't watch Supe at night. Only during the day. It freaks me out majorly sometimes. Especially the earlier seasons.

  16. I love that you have such a wide variety here! Vampires from the 90s is totally where it's at. I like the serious scary-ness of them. Conversely, I loved the hilarity of Zombieland, which totally did not take itself seriously, compared to the more serious zombie flicks out there. I remember cry laughing for several minutes when Bill Murray dies... The Princess Bride is obviously another fave (though in my case from my childhood) that I could watch again and again.

    I'm a lot less in tune with you TV choices though. I did quite enjoy True Blood in the beginning because it was so much fun, but I have not seen the rest. I'm getting a bit tired of Whovians going on and on about the Doctor without having any idea of what they're talking about though, so I might have to finally see what you're on about sometime soon.

    1. I will try not to mention Doctor Who in your presence anymore... haha. But really you should try one episode when you get the chance... just one. I really think it'd be something you'd enjoy- maybe. Anywho, I shall speak of it no more.


I love comments! So please leave them and I will make every attempt to return the favor!
