*LOVE the Harry Potter books, not so keen on the films but they still are fun to watch

**The BBC TV series of Narnia will always be my definitive & favourite Narnia adaptions, but the films are still fun to watch

***Okay, so there isn’t a very good film version of Joseph, but it
will always be my favourite musical. Have known all the words to every song since I was about 4 years old.

****This is my number one favourite film of all time
