Day 8/10 – Movies

As I mentioned yesterday I’m much more of a movie watcher than a book reader so you’d think that this one would be easy, after all I freely admitted that I’d seen all of the Harry Potter, Twilight and Hunger Games movies (more than once I might add) but there are so many (movies that is), that it’s hard to know where to go with this topic.

Three movies I’ve never (and will never watch)? – Lord of the Rings, Titanic & Green Mile

Three movies I never get tired of? The Bourne Identity (the first one is the best of the series), The Martian (yes I have a thing for Matt Damon) & Love Actually (I bet you didn’t see that one coming) πŸ˜‰

But those are both pretty cliche’ and to be fair (apart from perhaps from loving Love Actually – although honestly, who doesn’t) none of those facts would be new to you if you have been following my blog for any length of time.

I thought this would be a better opportunity to share three (outside of the mainstream) movies that I’ve watched and REALLY enjoyed, after all – sharing is caring.

FIFTY – The Movie
This film follows Mal Law’s bold attempt to run 50 mountain marathons over 50 peaks in just 50 days, all around New Zealand, in order to raise an enormous amount of money for the Mental Health Foundation and it’s awesome. Honestly I wanted to go and run up a mountain – well more like a small hill, but you know what I mean, it’s VERY inspirational and you’ll enjoy the movie even if you don’t run, the scenery alone is breathtaking.

Discovery Channels, The Toughest Race on Earth with James Cracknell
Follow James, a British Rower while he prepares and then runs the toughest Marathon on Earth – honestly, it’s amazing what the human body can do!

Eddie Izzard’s Marathon Man
OK so technically this isn’t actually a movie BUT my blog, my rules πŸ˜‰ (And it’s totes worth breaking the rules for).

Episode One:

Episode Two:

Episode Three:

He’s since run 27 Marathons across South Africa in 27 days!


See you on Monday – I’ll be too busy either running or watching movies about running to blog this weekend. πŸ˜‰

Till next time
