My all time favourite chick-flicks: Round 2!

So i've done a round up about my favourite girly flicks to watch before, but I realised after how many I had actually missed off my list. So here we go again..

  • French Kiss (1995) Director: Lawrence Kasdan

Starring Meg Ryan, this film is romantic-comedy gold. It literally has me in tears of laughter every time I watch it and it never ever gets old. An unfaithful man, a French criminal and Meg Ryan being typical Meg Ryan role. It's so fabulous! I don't even want to give the game up as it's just too good. Go and watch it!

  • Pitch Perfect (2012) Director: Jason Moore
A recent one to add to my favourites, however I still know people who haven't seen it yet. It's so good! An all-girl A Cappella group endure a bitchy, emotional and comical journey to the A Cappella competitions going head to head with their male rivals. It's cheesy, but amazing. Rebel Wilson AND Anna Kendrick? It's bound to be a winner. 

  • Sleepless in Seattle (1993) Director: Nora Ephron
Another Meg Ryan film.. maybe I should set up a fan page? The early days of an online-dating relationship, she and Hanks have this heart-warming story as they fall in love with one another without meeting face-to-face. More than a perfect for a hungover Sunday viewing with a tube of Pringles and a glass of wine. It just melts your heart.

  • Bring It On (2000) Director: Peyton Reed
Now this film me and my sisters used to be OBSESSED with. We went out and bought the pom-poms and learnt the songs and made up our own routines after watching it endlessly. It's really fierce, bitchy and filled with girl-power! The follow ups to this film were such a disappointment, but this one is brilliant.

  • The Amazing Spiderman 2 (2014) Director: Marc Webb
I am NOT a fan of Marvel or any superhero-style films (apart from The Incredibles because how can you not love that?) but this film is 'amazing'. Be prepared to cry and feel the heartbreak of Emma Stone & Andrew Garfield's on-screen relationship. You don't need to have seen the first Amazing Spiderman either, I haven't still but this is one of my favourites by far.

  • The Princess Diaries (2001) Director: Garry Marshall
A young Anne Hathaway & Julie Andrews playing the Queen of Genovia, the two make an amazing pair as we watch Hathaway get the make-over of her life and find out she is actually royalty. It's one of those films which is always on TV on a weekend but it never ever gets old! A typical teenage girl with relatable problems who discovers she's a princess, what more is there to like?

  • Thelma & Louise (1991) Director: Ridley Scott
I first discovered this film when I studied it at university exploring the portrayal of the female space in American films. The two women go on the run away from their husbands and become the most-wanted convicts in America. This girl-power film makes you want to go on a road trip all over North America with your best friends and have an adventure! Definitely worth a watch if you haven't seen it. (There's also a very young Brad Pitt in it... need I say any more?)
