Going to a movie theatre is very much like going to a church for me – God always talks to me through the movies I see. In Finland there are a lot of cinemas and cold winter nights that entice oneself to watch films. Therefore, I have gone to my “second church” a lot. Here are some of my favourite films:

Groundhog Day, Good Will Hunting, Dead Poets’ Society, Big Fish, Stranger than Fiction, Manhattan, The Notebook, Something’s Gotta Give, Enchanted, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, As Good As It Gets, Bruce Almighty, Before Sunrise, Before Sunset, Stardust, As It Is In Heaven (Så som i himmelen), The Blood Diamonds, American Beauty, Sex And The City, Nicholas Nickleby, Grease, The Princess Bride, Take the Lead, Pay It Forward, The Green Mile, The Shawshank Redemption, Freedom Writers, Dogville, Gandhi, American History X, Shine, P.S. I Love You, Bella, The Nun’s Story, Yes Man, Slumdog Millionaire, BLACK…

As you can see, dramas, comedies and documentaries are my favourite genres. My favourite film at the moment is the Wonderful Life.  A beautiful and inspiring classic. More and more I like comedies the best. There’s never too much laughing in this world.
