Monday Movie Muse

In lieu of music today, I thought I'd do a post in honor of the Olympics being held in London, listing my very favorite British movies, which coincidentally, just so happen to also be my favorite movies of all time. (British or not, they're bloody brilliant.)

First up is a movie I've probably seen over twelve times (no exaggeration--my roommate and I were obsessed with making everyone we knew watch it)...and I could still watch it over and over without ever getting tired of it. I LOVE IT THAT MUCH!
About a Boy

Next, is an oldie but goodie, made-for-TV miniseries with Colin Firth as Darcy. *swoon*
Pride and Prejudice
And here are a few of my very favorite holiday movies...

Love Actually

The Holiday

Honestly, there are SO MANY it's hard to choose. 

What about you? Any favorite British movies/television shows? Was your favorite here?

    1. Me too! Me too! It's one of those ones I never tire of watching and it always gives me warm fuzzies. :)

  2. You forgot "Notting Hill"! But of the ones you listed, I've seen "Love, Actually" more often than "About a Boy", even though I like that movie, too! I haven't seen the other two (will get to "Pride and Prejudice" as soon as I finish reading "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies"!)

    1. If you loved the others, then I'm pretty sure you'd love About a Boy too! You'll have to let me know what you think when you watch it!
