To be honest, unless your applying to Oxbridge to study something like medicine, it doesn't matter what subject you study at a-level - really. Universities mostly don't like subjects such as 'general studies' or similar. A subject like 'film studies' is perfectly valid
- and quite necessary if one plans to go to university to study some form of media.
At the end of the day, once you hit university most of what you learnt at a-level is revamped to a much higher level. So long as you do a subject well at a-level you're showing universities that you have potential, and willingness to further yourself.
There is absolutely no point in going for less "dossy" subjects if you have no interest in them, and as a result your grades suffer. In your personal statement, you're going to have to show some passion for what you're studying, and what you hope to study, and it would be pretty hard to make something like that up - particularly of you apply to a university where you have to attend an interview.
