Best St. Patrick's Day Movies

No matter what your background, it's hard not to feel a little bit Irish on Saint Patrick's Day. But if you still need a little nudge to get you in the festive spirit, here are a few movies that are bound to inspire you!

No. 5: In America

With more Irish-Americans in the world than there are actual Irish citizens, it's no wonder the tale of the Irish in America has become so closely linked to St. Patrick's Day. In fact, the world's first St. Patrick's Day parade was held in New York City. So it's to New York this movie heads to chart the struggles of a recently arrived Irish family as they to find their feet in America. While there's no mention of St. Patrick, the film does get to the heart of the Irish immigrant's experience - and that's well worth celebrating.

No. 4: Luck of the Irish

When Steven Fitzgerald, a newspaper reporter from New York, meets a leprechaun and a beautiful young woman while traveling in Ireland he can't believe his luck. Steven becomes torn between his old life in New York (complete with wealthy fiancée) and returning to his Irish roots. This flick has Little People, Irish-American immigrants and the green, green grass of Ireland. What more can you ask for?

No. 3: The Magical Legend of the Leprechauns

Whoopi Goldberg and Keiran Culkin star in this Hallmark movie set in the Emerald Isle. In it, an American businessman named Jack discovers that the cottage he's rented is occupied by a family of leprechauns. Jack unwittingly is thrown into the middle of a long-standing feud between the leprechauns and the fairies. His adventures with the little people are sure to put you in the festive mood!

No 2: The Last Leprechaun

St. Patrick's Day takes on a sinister new twist in The Last Leprechaun. In it, a brother and sister are sent to live with their father's new fiancée in Ireland where they discover their future stepmother has dark powers linked to the little people! A great flick for those of you who find the regular shamrocks and rainbows element of St.Paddy's too cheesy.

No. 1: Darby O'Gill and the Little People

This classic Irish flick goes waaaaay back to when Sean Connery wasn't an old man (you thought he was hatched that way, didn't you?). In fact, is it wrong to notice that he's actually looking kind of cute? In the flick, Darby O'Gill is a storyteller who tells tall tales of leprechauns and banshees. But when Darby actually captures the King of the Leprechauns, no one will believe him!

I thought it'd be cool for all the anime fans if there was a forum where we could find friends who like the anime we do :) Personally I really need some more friends who like what I do. Maybe you'll find someone who shares your love for something really obscure! Including manga too. To start off here are some favorites of mine: (just because one isn't here doesn't mean I might not like it too so everyone please share yours!) Black Butler D. Gray-Man No.6 Yu-Gi-Oh Seraph of the End Puella Magi Madoka Magica Horimiya Kekkai Sensen Free! Kyoukai no Kanata Tamako Market (especially its movie!!) My Little Monster Mekakucity Actors (and that whole music project that it's based on) Toradora! haven't finished reading/watching but like: (if you like it I'll make it a priority :)) Akagami no Shirayuki-hime Pandora Hearts Kyou Kara Maou Kuroko no Basket Noragami Kiznaiver  Bungou Stray Dogs The World Is Still Beautiful Ajin Haikyuu!! Aldnoah.Zero Princess Tutu That's all I could think of for now! What are yours? Note: No bashing other people's faves! Have debates/flame wars elsewhere. (Especially about Sword Art Online. Let's not even touch that)
