Hi everyone, I am Cheryl, I am 23 from North London. I love movies and have worked in branches of two of the major cinema chains in the country in order to get free tickets.
My top 3 films:

  • Something New
  • 27 Dresses
  • Amelie



I am a bit of a rom-com fan, so most of my top films will likely fall under this category, but I am partial to a bit of action (The Dark Knight, Thor, Sherlock Holmes etc)

Not my top 10 films ever, I don't know how to make that choice, and some of them I haven't seen for years, but they give you an idea of the kind of films I like.

So glad I found this group. Been looking for decent people to speak about all film genres and people who aren't ignorant enough to think 'slow-paced' is a sign of a bad film!

My top 3 are:
1. Clockwork Orange
2. Blade Runner
3. Day of the Jackal

However I'm a fan of so many films and documentaries, with a real soft spot for Studio Ghibli. Blue is the Warmest Colour, Ida and 20,000 Days on Earth being amongst the better ones I've seen in the last 12 months.
