Of course, Liz is right. We need a list of the 21 films to see before you’re 21 that you can ACTUALLY WATCH before you turn 15. She’s provided the beginnings, with
- The Wizard of Oz
- Indiana Jones I and II
- Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory
- The Princess Bride
- The Iron Giant
It’s now my job to wade in here with ones like:
- Shrek I and II
- Finding Nemo
- Toy Story
- Oliver Twist (the one where Oliver Reed plays Bill Sykes)
- Chitty Chitty Bang Bang
- The Dark Crystal
Your mum says that you have to see Jungle Book and Mary Poppins, but in the case of the latter you should note that bedrooms CANNOT be magically tidied.
Your uncle David has some opinions too, but as he has fabulous taste, a lot of his choices mirror mine. Storm Boy and E.T. made it into his list, and he’s added a couple to the Big List which we’ll get to later.
This is, of course, assuming that you’re into movies. You don’t necessarily have to be quite AS into movies as your mum and dad are (speaking of which, I hope you understand and appreciate that we’re going to sacrifice the film festival for you this year), but it would be nice if you can appreciate a decent plot twist and a nice tortured character portrayal.
