M is for: Favourite Films beginning with the letter M

(can you tell it’s getting to midway through the challenge and I’m finding it a bit more difficult to think up blog ideas?)

So Movies beginning with the letter M! It’s a simple idea for a blog (why didn’t I do the whole month like this?!) so here are some of my favourite films that happen to begin with the letter M.

The Mummy (1999)
One of my favourite films of all time! As I’ve said before I love the characters and their relationships. I love that this film is action packed but is also really quite funny – mostly thanks to John Hannah. I always end up watching this whenever it’s on TV even though I’ve probably seen it 50 times by now.

Man on a Ledge (2012) IMG-20140415-00951
It’s just a lot of fun and I have a thing about heist films right now so I love it for that. It also stars Elizabeth Banks and Anthony Mackie who are great in the roles.

Maid in Manhattan (2002)
This film reminds me of Pretty Woman in a way, what with the woman coming from a completely different world to the successful businessman. I love the mother/son relationship and the camaraderie between everyone who works in the hotel. It’s just an easy-watch, feel-good film.

Miss Congeniality (2000)
Sandra Bullock is brilliant as the tomboy FBI Agent forced to go undercover at a beauty pagent. It’s a ridiculous plot but it’s also just good fun and will make you smile.

Mama Mia! (2008)
This is another film that just makes me happy and I near enough always end up watching it whenever it’s on TV. I’ve grown up on ABBA songs thanks to my mother so I can’t help but sing along.

The Mask of Zorro (1998)
This is a film I grew up watching. It’s funny, got great sword fights and Antonio Banderas and Catherine Zeta Jones make such a believable couple.

Moon (2009)
This film is amazing and it’s my life’s mission to get more people to watch it. It has an amazing performance from Sam Rockwell, who is pretty much the only person in the whole film, and it’s just a brilliant sci-fi film.

Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol (2011) IMG-20140415-00953
This is my favourite Mission Impossible film. It’s got great action pieces, brilliant comedy moments and the chemistry between the cast in fantastic. Again it’s a kind of a heist movie so I love it.

The Monuments Men (2014)
I find it amazing that this story of art historians in WWII has never been told before. While it didn’t really have much emotional heft, it still was action packed and a little funny. Plus it was like a heist movie so I liked that aspect a lot.

Mighty Joe Young (1998)
No matter how many times I watch this film – I still find myself crying at the end. While you can say Mighty Joe Young is a quasi-remake/rip-off of King Kong, I like this family friendly film a lot.
