Top Ten Tuesday is hosted at The Broke and the Bookish and this week's topic is a Movie Freebie -- If we make TBR lists for books, how about a To-Be-Watched list of movies? I really don't watch a lot of movies so it was a little tough. I broke it up into two categories -  movies and documentaries, but it turns out nearly all of my movies are based on true stories. (Bridget feels real to me though!)

Movies I Wanted to See

The foot soldiers of the early feminist movement, women who were forced underground to pursue a dangerous game of cat and mouse with an increasingly brutal State.

Saving Mr Banks
Author P.L. Travers reflects on her childhood after reluctantly meeting with Walt Disney, who seeks to adapt her Mary Poppins books for the big screen.

Bridget Jones's Baby
Bridget's focus on single life and her career is interrupted when she finds herself pregnant, but with one hitch ... she can only be fifty percent sure of the identity of her baby's father.

The Imitation Game
During World War II, mathematician Alan Turing tries to crack the enigma code with help from fellow mathematicians.

Florence Foster Jenkins 
The story of Florence Foster Jenkins, a New York heiress who dreamed of becoming an opera singer, despite having a terrible singing voice.

In honour of Nonfiction November, and after a perusal of Netflix, here are some documentaries I would like to see:

Hoop Dreams
A film following the lives of two inner-city Chicago boys who struggle to become college basketball players on the road to going professional.

An in-depth look into the exploding subculture of sneaker collecting and the widespread influence it has had on popular culture around the world.
