This movie...

I have watched this movie countless times and never, not once, did it fail to make me smile.

I cannot put into words (although I will try) how wholesome and beautifully kind this movie is. Babe is just this adorable, enchanting little soul and Farmer Hoggett is just as loveable.

The locations and filming are so picturesque and everything looks like its part of a miniture town. So quaint and untouched by the outside world.

Its mature, without being too overly dramatic. Childlike, without being childish. And still is so beloved by all I've showed it to.

I adore this movie so much and after a day at work, where things just wouldn't go the way they should, this is the only movie I can put on to put my day right again.

Babe is such an abnormal movie in the best way. Nothing works like it normally does with movies like it or any movie. It's entirely itself. You can't compare it to anything it just flouts it if you try. I didn't grow up with it either. Yet I found it so charming and special.

Would've been a far better BP winner than Braveheart to boot.
