  1. I’m hoping to watch Stranger Than Fiction someday soon too. Plus, I’ve never seen The Goonies!
    Miracle on 34th Street and Straight Outta Compton are both incredible!

  2. Oooh there’s a good few movies here I want to see myself!
    Can’t wait to see your thoughts on The Goonies. I only watched it for the first time a couple of years ago and don’t really understand the hype, but I know it’s a lot of people favourite childhood movie ever!

    Exciting list! I’m anxious to read what you think of Will Ferrell in Stranger Than Fiction vs him in Anchorman. 😁

      I am interested to see, too, because Will Ferrell is not necessarily an actor I love, though he can be really good at times, so let’s see how it all goes 🙂
