Food on Film

Food on Film

As it’s the season of gluttonous feasting, I started to contemplate about movie scenes or movies that had food at their focus, in other words I was in the mood for some good old food porn.

Here are couple of clips of  movies that literally make you want to binge after watching them:

Matilda (1996)

Classic scene from a classic movie, if only I could get applauded for eating a whole chocolate cake, that chocolate cake looked moist as hell, I would love to shove my face in it.

Hook (1991)

Just took a stop on nostalgia lane, I remember thinking the food in Hook looked amazing as a child, it was probably the luminous greens and reds, in hindsight it looks  packed full of E numbers and artificial colours  but I still want to get that dose of sugar and artificial colouring .

Ratatouille (2007)

Who would have thought that a movie about rats and food critics would have done so well, after  watching this movie I felt like cooking food seemed enjoyable and maybe I should try it out  but then I realized  I have no talent  with cooking tools , except for the microwave , I can cook minute rice in 55 seconds.

Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (2002)

As a massive fan of The Lord Of The Rings movies, I couldn’t help but stick this scene in, whenever am hungry, I have used the line in full Orc voice, “am starving we ain’t had nothing but maggoty bread for 3 stinking days” and as soon as the food arrives I say “looks like meat’s back on the menu boys”. Silly I know, but for some reason it’s one of the most memorable lines from the movie.

Chef (2014)

Other than being one of the best father and son movies I have seen in awhile, Chef will make a foodie, out of the most unenthusiastic of food eaters (paleo and clean eaters).

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (2005)

If I had the choice  to hang out in a land of edible candy  for an hour but on the flip side I would also hang out with a creepy man ,  that has imprisoned singing small people . I could do that, don’t you know you can eat your way through any problem.

Sideways (2004)

A great movie that legitimizes alcoholism, which is basically what wine tasting is, a polite form of light alcoholism.
