Top 10 Studio Ghibli Movies (Updated)

thumbnail_IMG_20190604_113740_084Lately I’ve been in a very Ghibli mood, a mood that consists of wanting to be awed by wonder, enchantment and cuteness and a hunger that can only be satisfied by watching Studio Ghibli films.  Back in the early days of this blog I made a post listing my top 10 favourite Ghibli films (click here to see that post). After re-watching most of my old favourites and a few Ghibli films I’d never seen before, my opinion on these movies have changed quite a lot. Don’t worry I still love Ghibli films very much and they still hold a big place in my heart (I wouldn’t be in a Ghibli mood otherwise). It’s just that over time and after a huge Ghibli binge-watch (best binge-watch ever), my preference has shifted and my top ten favourites is now very different from the first post I made.

So, for that reason its about time I updated this list and brought to you an updated version of

My Top 10 Favourite Studio Ghibli Films:

Honourable Mention- Pom Poko (↓4)
A lot of people seem not to like this film, personally I found the raccoons antics in this movie really funny. It can be a little crude at times, but looking pass that it’s quite a good film with a positive eco-friendly message to look after the environment and not destroy natural habitats. (Which is a bit of a running theme in Ghibli films)

thumbnail_640EA4E8-C292-49B0-8718-B16564FB153710: My Neighbour Totoro (NE= New Entry)
This is kind of a funny sort of a film. It’s very nice to watch but it doesn’t really have much of a storyline, it’s more like a series of happenings. I’ll try explaining the plot to show you what I mean, two little girls move to the countryside with their father. The house they move into turns out to be haunted by very cute harmless spirits. You learn the girls’ mother is in hospital with TB and can’t come home which upsets the girls. Their father has to work a lot, so the girls are pretty much left to run wild in the garden and surrounding area. Which leads to them meeting a giant cute bunny-bear like spirit called Totoro. The children hang out and play with Totoro, then the youngest one goes missing. Everyone panics and thinks she’s either gone by herself to visit her mother or drowned in a pond. Then the oldest girl gets on a cat bus and finds her younger sister and the movie then ends with them both eating corn in a tree.
As you can see it’s a bit of a strange film with a very loose plot, which has led to a lot of theories being made about what actually is happening in this film. From suggesting its references toward a real-life disappearance of a school girl, to people theorising that the girls actually die at the end of the film and that’s why they’re sitting in a tree (because apparently spirit rest in trees at night). However, it’s incredibly cute and sweet, which is what makes the film so enjoyable (you could quite possibly get tooth ache from watching it).

9: The Tale of Princess Kaguya (NE)
The animation style of this film so very different from other Ghibli films, it looks more like a hand painted moving talking watercolour, than the typical Ghibli art style. It’s subtle colour scheme and intriguing storyline makes it very relaxing and beautiful to watch. It does have a lot of religious and mythological references, which some mightn’t like. But if you’re interested in mythology and don’t mind the odd religious reference, its quite a nice watch. Like most Ghibli films it also has a positive message, which is to not chase after others idea of happiness or force your idea of happiness upon others (including your children and other family members). Basically, the film’s message is about achieving true happiness.

8: The Secret World of Arrietty (↑1)
This film has moved up one place in this list mainly because of its breathtakingly beautiful scenes and animation. In the last list, I think I underappreciated how amazing and stunning the animation was (probably because now I know the level of work that goes into creating scenes like those in the film). Story wise I prefer this version of the borrowers over the 1997 borrowers films. It’s very heart-warming and lovely to watch and puts a nice wee spin on the concept of borrowers.

7: Castle in The Sky (↑3)
Castle in The Sky has moved up quite a bit in this list. In the last list I forgot about the sense of wonder this film creates and about the sky pirates. Ghibli sky pirates are a rather likable odd bunch. At first, they seem like bad news but as the film goes on, they become goofier and seem more like a big bunch of softies. Especially, Dola who is a great character and is like a kooky, really cool grandmother that takes no guff and is tough as nails but is still kind at heart. The sky pirates all add a little bit of comedy and relatability to what is already a sweet and mysterious film with beautiful animation.

6: Kiki’s Delivery Service (↑2)
I re-watched Kiki’s Delivery Service with my nephew and he was outrage at behaviour in this film, which made me realise how bananas this film actually is. My nephew was completely horrified that parents would let a 13-year-old go off by themselves and in complete shock at Kiki breaking the stranger danger rule over and over again and getting in a car with a stranger. You would have sworn he was watching a horror movie instead of a Ghibli film. His overreaction and ranting towards this film made watching it so much funnier. But in saying that he does have a point, this film is sort of messed up and the more you think about Kiki does put herself in quite a few situations that would be incredibly dangerous in the real world (even for an adult). Anyway, seeing Kiki’s Very Dangerous Delivery Service from a new point of view, made me appreciate how surreal the Ghibli universe actually is (there is so many Ghibli films where children wander of by themselves and do really dangerous things and everyone acts spookily happy about it), which is why it was given a higher place on this list. (Funniest thing is my nephew says he liked this film, but like Ponyo better. He really loves Ponyo)

thumbnail_90DDF0C2-ADBB-47CC-B77D-4C830420E57E5: Ponyo (↓1)
Ponyo is a very cute and magical Ghibli film that really has the awe factor. With its beautiful use of colour and breath-taking animation, it’s really enjoyable and hypnotic just to look at. Story wise, its incredibly sweet and just plain adorable. It’s the kind of film that would warm even the coldest of hearts. No matter how many times I see this movie I never get sick of it. The only reason it fell a spot on this list, was to make room for a film I’ve only seen for the first time recently.

4: When Marnie was There (NE)
The best way to describe this film is a mysterious ghost story that shows the beauty of friendship. There is just so much twist and turns in this film and it’s just so mysterious. It will constantly keep you guessing and glued to the screen. At one point I didn’t have a baldy (a clue) what was happening and found myself completely enthralled in the film, very eagerly wanting to know what the fudge was happening. The ending of this film is very bitter sweet, it’s lovely and warms the cockles of the heart but is also really sad and might even make you shed a tear. It has a little more of a mature feel to it than other Ghibli films, but all around it’s an amazing film and one definitely worth watching. I regret not watching it sooner.

3: Spirited Away (↓1)
Spirited Away is a film that most anime and Ghibli fans will have seen at least once in their life. It holds a special place in a lot of people’s hearts and it’s not hard to see why. It’s so magical and cute and very different from anything you’ve probably ever seen. For me its where my love of anime and Ghibli began. As a child I was so innocent and naïve that I didn’t even know anime was a thing. Weird thing is I had watched quite a lot of anime before this film (Pokémon, Digimon, Beyblade, Yu-Gi-Oh! and even Princess Mononoke), but never caught on that they were anime. To me they were just cartoons the same as all the others I loved to watch. It wasn’t until my Dad put a film on the TV (which was Spirited Away) and the announcer called it an Anime film from Japan, that I know there was such thing as anime. I was so taken by Spirited Away, that I wanted to know more about what anime was and from there my love of anime blossomed. Which is why it’s in the top 3.

thumbnail_F85F8032-DCD3-4CA6-ACBF-4747982F888D

I love Turnip-head so much, that I redrew him.

2: Howl’s Moving Castle (↑1)
Glob I love the sassy old lady power in this movie. Howl’s Moving Castle is one of those Ghibli films that really deliver on that magical mysterious feel. Its story contains so much mystery that on the first watch, it’ll constantly have you guessing about so many things like Howl, the castle, the fire demon Calcifer, turnip head and what on earth is going on in this film. This mixed with its magical creatures and enchanted objects and devices, gives a real feel of awe and wonder. On top of this, it tells a heart-warming love story that teaches there is more to being loved than a pretty face. Its animation is absolutely beautiful and has so many cool little details which is why it’s my favourite film animation wise. All round Howl’s Moving Castle is a wonderful Ghibli film.

1: Princess Mononoke
Although everything else in this list has changed, my no. 1 favourite Ghibli film has stayed the same. It was the first Ghibli film I had ever seen (even though I didn’t know it was at the time), so it’s kind of special to me. But I think that’s the same with everyone’s first Ghibli film. Your first Ghibli film is usually the one that makes you fall in love with Ghibli and opens the door to the wonderful world of Ghibli. So, it’s not hard to see why most people’s first Ghibli film is their favourite.
First time I watched Princess Mononoke, I was completely dumbfounded, in a state of pure astonishment and amazement. It was like nothing I had ever seen before. I instantly fell in love with its beautiful animation style and was really taking by it. I remember the first time watching this film, trying to slowly edge closer and closer to the TV, to really take in its beautiful scenery. Then having sofa cushions flung at me by my siblings and having the snot beat out of me with one for blocking their view. Though I didn’t fully understand the films plot or symbolism as a child, I still loved it and enjoyed every minute of it. As an adult, I continue to love this film and have re-watched it so many times. It’s just so amazing and unique, it really is a great Ghibli film.

Hope you enjoyed this Ghibli top 10 update. The first time I posted a Ghibli top 10, I made a top 10 Non-Ghibli anime film list, to link in with that post. I haven’t decided yet whether to update that list too, but if people are interested in seeing that update, I’ll update it too.

As always Thanks for reading and if you have a favourite Ghibli film, don’t be afraid to tell me about it in the comments below. I’d love to hear about it.

Top 10 Favourite Festive Movies

thumbnail_b7b5fa60-a601-4c64-b956-822ac5e2497cIt’s that time of year again for some of us. Where we become wrapping paper ninja, where going shopping becomes a deadly game of “Don’t get trampled” and where we make one hell of an attempt to get nice and fat.

Although we all might celebrate different holidays this time of year, one thing we can all come together and relate to, is a good Festive movie. There’s just nothing like escaping the cold, with a nice warm blanket and a hot drink and snuggling down to watch a holiday classic.

For this reason, I give to you my Top 10 Favourite Festive Movies:

10-Jack Frost (1998)
A boy’s father dies and comes back as a snowman. The father and son mend their broken bond, just before the snow starts to melt and you can see where this is going.
This movie isn’t great, but has made it onto the list due to nostalgia. Every Festive season, since I was a child, this movie has been shown on T.V. and it’s never fails be heartbreakingly bittersweet. Not the best Festive movie, but one I’m sure all 90’s children will remember watching, during the Festive season.

thumbnail_fa3a4abd-59e1-4f03-b5b4-5edd3c0840ac9-Rise of the Guardians
An evil villain named Pitch Black, aims to destroy all the holiday guardian’s, so that the world will be thrown into darkness and despair. To stop this villain, the guardians must work together and reignite children’s belief in the guardians.
This list is a bit on PG side, but that’s mainly because families all come together over the festive season. I come from quite a large family, where children (my nieces and nephews) outnumber the adults. So, festive viewing has to be child friendly.
If it wasn’t for that, I probably would have never given this movie a look in. This film is surprisingly dark and may upset more sensitive children, but glob I love the villain in the movie (as children’s film villains go, he’s terrifying). The fact the main character and Elsa from Frozen, has similar powers is a bit suspicious. But ignoring that, it makes for a good festive movie, for when chaos in child form comes to visit.

8- Arthur Christmas
This is a very typical Christmas movie involving the big guy, Snorlax (No, wait that’s not right). I mean, Santa Claus. It’s pretty straight forward, Santa Claus forgets a child and he’s too exhausted, to sort this problem out himself. So, saving this child’s Christmas, falls into the less competent hands of Santa Claus’s son, his retired father and an elf.
Another film I would have ignored, if it wasn’t for child friendly viewing. As Santa Claus movies go, this is one of the better ones and is very entertaining. It makes for a great silly, jokey movie, that both children and adults can enjoy.

7-Frozen
By now we’ve all probably seen Frozen, so it needs little introduction. A hilarious little snowman, catchy songs and a story about two sisters love for each other. What’s not to love? However, this movie comes with an added bonus, Silence. Sounds weird, but stick with me.
When your living room has become a mad hatter’s tea party of screaming children, arguing over something ridiculous (like who gets to open the lid of the sweets). Putting on this film, is like having a magic mute button. Within minutes of putting on Frozen, the shouting and messing stops and the house becomes so quiet, that all you can hear is the rustling of sweet papers, as everyone enjoys some chocolatey treats.

thumbnail_bfab7d9a-711d-4d2d-b5a2-680d677f38d16-Gremlins (1984)
A father, gives his son a strange creature, that comes with a set of strict rules, regarding its care. However, the son accidentally breaks these rules, causing the creature to multiply. Unfortunately, these newer creatures are evil and hell-bent on causing chaos. Leading to a bunch of the evil creatures, running amuck in the town, on Christmas Eve.
It may be an oldie, but it’s definitely one of the best festive films, of its time and is still an excellent movie. Being kind of creepy but funny, it makes a nice change from the typical festive films, shown this time of year. It’s also the reason, I feel uneasy around furbys, but screw it. It’s too good of a film, to hold that against it.

5- A Christmas Carol (2009)
There are so many different version of this classical Christmas story, about an old grumpy, money hungry man, being visited by 3 ghosts, that make him face his heartless and greedy ways. Causing him to become so horrified by his own behaviour and its consequences, that he changes his ways and transforms into Mr Super Nice.
Out of all versions, this one really surprised me. Considering it’s animated, I didn’t expect it to be as good as it was. However, I was wrong and the animation, gave it a really creepy vibe, which made the film very enjoyable.

4-The Nightmare Before Christmas
Jack Skellington, the pumpkin king is fed up with life in Halloween town, so forms a plan to kidnap Santa Claus and take over the Christmas holiday.
I’m a huge fan of stop-motion and Tim Burton is one of my favourite directors, so it’s no surprise that The Nightmare Before Christmas, is on this list. The dark spooky undertone, great character design, dramatic singing and layers of hidden meanings throughout, are all things I love about this film. The Nightmare Before Christmas is just so magical and full of wonder. It’s not hard to see, why it’s also one of my favourite Tim Burton films.

3-Elf
A human raised by elves at the north pole, discovers he is not an elf and wants to return to the human world, to meet his real father. Unfortunately, he doesn’t know how things work in the human world (who ever actually does), which leads to him getting himself into some odd but hilarious situations.
This movie is kind of silly, but silly doesn’t mean bad. In fact, Elf is really enjoyable and is a great good mood movie, that will help relieve that holiday stress (It’s hard to be stressed, when watching someone so cheerful).

63aaf79a-039e-4ce1-9b87-28916246851f2-The Grinch (2000)
The Who’s of Whoville, repeatedly humiliate and treat the Grinch like dirt. So, he decides to get revenge, by stealing the Who’s Christmas.
The older I get, the more I can relate to the Grinch. There’s just times while watching this film, that you realise you’re as odd as the Grinch, have the same level of hatred for Christmas and have some of the same alone behaviours.
I find myself laughing more at the fact, I’m slowly becoming the Grinch, than at the comedy in this movie. However, it’s this relatability that makes this film so enjoyable and amusing. It’s like watching yourself, when you’re in a bit of a bad mood and having a bad day.

1-A Muppets Christmas Carol 
It’s the same classical story as the other A Christmas Carol on this list, except with the Muppets.
I watch this movie multiple times throughout the holiday season and love it for so many reasons. Some of the main reasons being nostalgia, I grew up watching the Muppets and Sesame street and now adore anything to do with puppets. Another reason is, how it uses great quotes from the book. I also love the book, so find this so fantastic.
However, the biggest reason is, the Muppets delivery of a classic Christmas tale. The delivery is just excellent in this film. They take a serious classical tale and add in some humour, without destroying overall tone of the story. It’s my favourite Muppets movie and an excellent festive movie.

Hope you enjoyed this list and feel free to tell me, your festive favourites in the comments. Looking forward to reading them.

Top 10 Women’s Clothing Hates

955b828c-d26b-409d-a2d4-385889177093Since I’ve way too much clothes and nowhere to put them, I’ve been forced to clear out my wardrobe. While rummaging through the depths of my wardrobe, finding clothing that probably hadn’t seen the light of day for many years, I noticed something. I buy clothes (thinking they’re nice), wear them once (if even) then take an extreme dislike to them and never wear them again. After having rid my wardrobe of the clothes I hated, I can now see how big of a problem this was and I’m guessing there’s a lot of other people with this problem. So, for this reason, I introduce to you My Top 10 Women’s Clothing Hates:

10.Clothes never look as good as on the mannequin.I fall for this all the time. I go into the shop, see a really nice outfit on the mannequin and decide to buy it. I take it home, put it on, do the big reveal for my sister and nieces, and they’re on the ground laughing at the state of me or looking at me with that “got to pretend she looks nice” face. At this point, I go to the mirror and realise I look like I’m auditioning for clown college or in fancy dress. I try returning these outfits, but as usual I can’t find the receipt, so to the back of the cupboard they go.

9.Pocket Size.This happens a lot with jeans and jeggings. I buy a new pair of jeans or jeggings. I’m walking about feeling all good, enjoying that new jeans feeling and I go to put my phone in my pocket. But oh wait, it doesn’t fit because these pockets are baby sized and my phone is normal size. Now I have to walk around holding my phone and try not to set it down and lose it. As you can tell this one winds me up something awful.

8.Boob gap in shirt buttons. Got to hate when you buy a shirt in a rush, goto put it on and button it up. Then realise it doesn’t fit around your boobs, leaving huge gap between the buttons, revealing what you got under your shirt. I don’t have biggest pair and this happens to me a lot, so I can’t even begin to imagine, how annoying this must be for the larger breasted lady,

7.Badly fitted clothes. It is ridiculously hard to find clothing, fitted for the realistically proportioned person. Usually what happens, is that a top will fits in the stomach but is too tight in the chest. I try a size bigger and it fits in the chest now, but is massive in the stomach. This then leaves me with the choice of either wearing a top that fits my stomach but may pop at the chest at any minute or that fits my chest but looks baggy as hell. Not wanting to spring out of my top, I always go for the latter.

6.Fake Pockets. The only thing that annoys me more than tiny baby pockets, is fake pockets. I’ve been tricked by this numerous times. I buy a jacket or coat, thinking it has pockets and that it’ll solve my baby pocket problem. Get it home and find out the pockets are fake. This has happened me with both really expensive coats and reasonably priced coats, so it can’t just be a “get what you pay for” problem. When I buy a coat that cost over £100 I expect those things posing as pockets, to actually be pockets and not just sewed on bits of material. This only annoys me more, when I realise my jeans have baby pockets, so pretty much still have no functioning pockets. I feel so cheated and betrayed by the clothing industry every time this happens and would really like it to stop. Like why do this, if you aren’t trying to trick people into thinking the clothes has pockets. I my opinion I consider it false advertisement and being misleading.

5.See through clothes.This can be really embarrassing if you don’t notice until you’re out in public or if someone points it out. Also, it kind of forces you to go out and spend more money on under tops if you ever want to wear that top again. I don’t understand why they make clothes like this. I am pretty sure most people don’t want to be walking around with their underwear showing, for all to see. This isn’t just a cheap clothing problem; a lot of designer clothes are see through now too. It leaves me questioning whether manufacturers have gotten so greedy that they’re using material so thin that its see trough, just to save on costs and increase profit. When think about it would make sense. Half the thickness, half the amount of material needed and charge the same price. Twice as much clothes can be made from the material, so double the profit. When people have no other choice but to buy this clothing, it’s really a no brainer.

4.Quality. This usually isn’t noticeable until clothes are washed for the first time. It’s so hard to find clothes that wash well. They either lost their shape, go all bally or shrink. Also, I’ve notice jean material is getting thinner and thinner, so jeans rip a whole lot easier. Basically, what I’m trying to say is clothes quality has gotten god awful and I can only see it getting worse. The stitching in clothes is even becoming completely rubbish. It undoes with barely any pulling or stretching. The other month in was in a shop and I found pyjama bottoms that weren’t stitched properly and had a massive whole in the leg. I showed them to the server at the till and they said they’ll get someone to check the rest of the bottom because it happens all the time. Like what the hell, is there no quality control. This shop is rather pricey so you would expect this to be rare. It seems like no thought has been put into quality at all.

3.Jean leg lengths. Being short, this is one of my biggest pet peeves when buying jeans. A few years ago, a short leg in jeans was 28iches and regular was 30iches, then suddenly most shops changed short leg to 30iches. I have baby legs, so just got away with 28iches, but now with this new sizing, short leg jeans are far too big and my feet get lost in the jeans. Every time I need new jeans, I have to go on a massive search for shops that still use the old leg sizes. It’s so annoying and kind of unfair that short people are no longer catered for by most shops. This problem could easily be fixed if shops started selling extra short legs at 28inches or went back to the old sizes.

2.Sizes. This relates to the previous point, but is more forced on the fact that there is no standardise sizes for women’s clothes. There can be a massive difference in the same clothes size in different shops. Just to make this more of a mind field, the same clothes size in different ranges in the same shop can differ greatly too. This means you have to try on everything and can’t trust the label, making clothes shopping take a lot longer than it has to. It’s so frustrating. Not sure how much of a problem this is for everyone else, but in my wardrobe, I have clothing ranging from UK size 12 to UK to 20. It’s crazy. How can clothing that meant to have just a big difference in size, still fit me equally as well. Completely Bananas.

1.They are not warm. I hate being cold so this is my number one hate. Where I live, it can reach -6oC or lower in winter, so when I buy winter clothes I want them to be warm. Unfortunately, most of the times they are not. Coat that claim to keep you warm, are like wearing nothing. I haven’t had a warm coat in years. This year the temperature dropped to -10oC and I was freezing. I had to run home and find my old coat and wear it under my new coat, just to be not as cold (I was still pretty cold). I find myself having to wear layers and layers of clothes just to stay remotely warm, even then the temperature isn’t below freezing. I don’t know if men clothing is the same, but really wish they made clothes that were truly warm.     

 

My Top 10 YouTube Channels

b4a69219-53a8-4725-a008-fd7001e2e49f_1I love YouTube and spend hours watching random videos. However, I find myself watching quite a lot of videos belonging to the same channels. So for you guys I’ve listed my top 10 YouTube channels. Enjoy!

  1. Cayleigh Elise
  2. Facts
  3. Explose Entertainment
  4. Screen Junkies
  5. Talking Kitty Cat
  6. Watch Cut Video(recently changed to hiho Kids)
  7. Crash Course
  8. Cinema Sins
  9. The Chen News
  10. Facts Verse

Cayleigh Elise- I can spend hours binge watching this channel. It’s full of videos about mysteries, murder, paranormal and the unknown. It’s my go to place for spooks and creepiness, when I’m in one of those moods and fancy creeping myself out. I love the host Cayleigh, she really good at delivering the stories and really pulls you in.

Facts- This is my favorite watch people be fed gross or unusual food and experience new things for money channels on YouTube. I probably like this channel so much because the videos I watch are mainly about irish people trying stuff for the first time, so I can connect the participants on that level. The reactions of the participants are hilarious and the stuff they are made eat or do can be a bit extreme which makes it very entertaining, even if they refuse to do it.

Explose Entertainment– Also known as cyanide and happiness. These cartoons are hilarious. They’re  great for when all you need is a good laugh and there only a few minutes long so great for procrastinating. They can be a bit silly and rude at times, but trust me they’ll have you giggling to yourself in no time.     

Screen Junkies- I love honest trailers so much. Basically these videos take the mickey out of movies in a really funny way and I find them hilarious. I’ve even watched honest trailers for movies I really love and enjoy and I still find myself laugh uncontrollably. It’s a really good channel if you’re looking for a laugh or a pick me up.

Talking Kitty Cat Something about an evil talking cat that is plotting to get rid of his owner’s other cats and dog, really appeals to me. I find this kitty so funny because although he is really evil, he’s either to lazy to carry out his plans to destroy the other pets or gets it distracted by wet cat food. These videos are not for children but, because the cat swears a lot and gives out some really messed up threats to the other pets.

Watch Cut Video(recently changed to hiho Kids)- This channel is really cute. It’s about really cute children try foods from around the world. The children’s reaction to the food is priceless however, that’s not why I like this channel so much. The children play around and don’t do what the camera man wants which is really funny and some of the children’s rants about the food are hilarious.

Crash Course- I mainly watch the psychology videos on this channel and is where I go to learn about psychology. I like this channel because I’m really interested in psychology (probably because I want to workout what the hell is wrong with myself) and these videos teach psychology related things in a really fun and interesting way, that even I can understand.

Cinema Sins- I love this channels Everything wrong with videos about movies, music videos and TV show, they are so funny. It very similar to screen junkie’s  honest trailers as it also takes the mickey in the same kind of way however, its more about the mistakes made, plot holes and things that don’t make sense in movies, music videos and TV shows and counts them in the form of sins. These videos are great for when you hate a movie or a show but can’t work out why.

The Chen News- I haven’t really watched this since Dan left the channel however, I thought I’d put this on the list because at one point this was the main channel I watched on YouTube and my main source of world news. It’s hosted by a guy called Mike, that has a lot of other YouTube channels, like his food channel and his opinion channel (he changed the names after Dan left so I’m not sure what they’re called now). Mike provides a less sugar-coated version of news stories and topic choice is usually really good and interesting.

Facts Verse- This channel does count down videos on random things. Out of all the channels I’ve watched that does this type of thing, I would have to say this channel is my favorite. For some reason this channel stands out to me and I find it just that bit better than other similar channels. This is probably because the topic choices appeal more to my interests and the delivery of the count down I feel is a lot better than similar channels.

If you like this style of post and would like to see me do more similar posts, let me know in the comments and don’t forget to follow this Blog. Hope you enjoyed!
