The Lion King

I recently bought myself an Eeyore stuffed toy from Disney. He’s really soft and super cuddly. He’s my sofa pal. I don’t have housemates or flatmates, I don’t have a partner to come home to, or a pet to cuddle up to on the couch. So I have Eeyore. I’ve seen things shared around online…

The Greatest Showman

Ever since I first saw the trailer for The Greatest Showman I knew I wanted to see it, and had a good feeling that I was going to love it. I went to see it last week, and rather than loving it, this film has me conflicted. I think I’ve now processed it enough to work out why, or at least I will have done by the end of this blog!

I’m conflicted because of how I felt straight after seeing it – I liked it, and the girl I saw it with absolutely loved it which I think made me think I must’ve done too. But then thinking more about it, I changed my mind – I actually felt a bit disappointed by the characters. One thing I did love was the songs – so I listened to the album a couple of times, and having listened, processed and thought a little more, I now I think I get the message of the film; it’s deeper than the catchy tunes and splendour of the show – and I now like it, I think. Let me explain…

Here’s To The Fools Who Dream

Earlier this year I saw a film in the cinema that absolutely tugged (or even yanked) on my heartstrings. I loved it, and then hated it, but hated it because I loved it so much. It made me cry. It made me laugh til I cried. It made my heart feel so full. It made me hurt inside. It literally made me feel like I was on top of the world and utter crap all within 128 minutes.

Man Up!

I try very hard, daily, not to be depressed about my sucky life. Single, not quite in the job I thought I’d be in, living in a house share, did I mention single? So today being payday, I thought I’d treat myself to the life I want. I slept in, I went shopping, I treated…

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…

Top 10 Films of 2013

This blog post was inevitable. I work at a cinema, and I love film. So a top 10 of the year was bound to arise sooner or later. However, when I look back over this year, it’s actually been a pretty terrible year for film. I struggled to make the list whole. I hated Les…

My Disney Princess- Pocahontas

Every girl seems to have a love for Disney Princesses. Whether they are girly girls, tomboys, or so-so, they will feel a certain love for one or more of the famous Disney characters. I for one have decided in have an affinity with one princess in particular, and it’s a bit of a surprise one!

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…

The Purge

Yesterday I went to see the new horror/thriller ‘The Purge’. From the same people who made ‘Insidious’ and ‘Sinister’, I was expecting something chilling and terrifying. I was let down in some ways, but the idea the film is based on fascinated me. This is a two-fold blog, a review and a “what if…” pondering….

Top 10 films of 2012… According to Amy

I want to start by saying that in no way is this a definitive list. I’ve used this as a conversation starter for the past couple of weeks and I’ve had an insanely mixed bag response.
