"Movies to get you in the mood" London Favorite Tip by Dabs

London General: 1,877 reviews and 2,513 photos

Favorite thing: There are lots and lots of movies set in London and England, some of my favorites include

Layer Cake the best Guy Ritchie movies that he didn't make, it stars Daniel Craig as a man trying to get out of the drug business, just one more score....

Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels speaking of Guy Ritchie movies...Rock N Rolla was good too

Love Actually a movie set at Christmas time in London with a huge cast and intertwined stories

Shakespeare in Love

Elizabeth starring Cate Blanchett

Four Weddings and a Funeral starring Hugh Grant and Andie McDowell

There have been some great BBC miniseries that I've watched recently including

Downton Abbey, currently heading into it's 4th season, Maggie Smith is a delight and the show highlights the servants downstairs equally as much as the family upstairs

Call the Midwife set in the east end of London during the 1950s, the series follows the midwife Jenny Lee as she adapts to the different lifestyle of the people living in poverty

Sherlock starring Benedict Cumberbatch as a 21st century version of Sherlock Holmes

Little Dorrit based on the novel by Charles Dickens

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
