New Year’s Resolutions: Reviewed

This year, I had decided to set myself a resolution for the first time in years. Remarkably, I’ve achieved what I intended. For the first time ever (personally and globally perhaps?) I have stuck to a resolution. Insert shocked emoji here! I’m pretty sure whoever invented New Year’s Resolutions dreamed this day might come, but…

Church is…

To many people, the word “church” conjures different feelings. The place means different things. Here’s what I’ve learnt (so far) – 

The Best Films of 2013

It may be January 16th today, but I am still reading the January issue of Empire, and therefore it doesn’t really feel like I’m up to date with films, so in my head, I’m right on time with a round up of 2013 blog! Amy wrote one of these a few weeks ago – you…

I thought about writing the Top 10 Disney Films… but realised that would be more difficult than… well the most difficult thing ever. I can’t…

Independence Day: Awesome or Awesome?

Picture this… You open to the sound of Neil Armstrong’s voice recording from 1969 on the moon with the view he had from that same piece of rock, with an emphasis on the fact mankind came in peace. Then, suddenly, the ground is quaking and those footsteps that should outlive the human race, the footsteps…

My Three Go-To Movies

I don’t know about you, but I have certain films that I go to whatever my mood, whatever I fancy that I will always enjoy. However, when it comes to other people watching the films with me, it’s not so good, because I know pretty much the whole script. My top three go-to movies are:…

Ellen’s Short Round Up of 2012

2012 is well and truly over, and it was a good year, with a lot of good films, music, books, and TV, so I thought I’d do a short round-up of my favourites!
