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…

Why I’m mad at God

So I’m on this aforementioned trip of a lifetime, through Canada and then out to Hawaii. I’m currently on the Hawaii leg of that trip. I try not to think about why I’m a little bit angry at God. I’ve tried to ignore it. I’ve stopped going to church, I’ve stopped speaking to Him, even…

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…

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…

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….

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:…

Trailers

Ok, so we all like to have a little rant from time to time. This particular bug has been plaguing me for a while. As many of you know, I work in a cinema. I love films, in fact, I’d go as far as to say I’m pretty passionate about the world of film. The…

2012 in review and what 2013 might bring

So 2012 has been and gone. This is the last blog I’ll post about 2012, I’ll stop looking back and look to the future instead. But I want to reflect on what I learnt in 2012, what I achieved, and what I missed. And while I’m here, I might as well tell you what I’m…
