Happy Wednesday Everyone!! I can’t believe we are almost halfway through September already, honestly where has this year gone?!? This week’s link-up takes inspiration from the latest episode of Peaky Blinders which was a total doozy (S05E04). Just before a surprising and dramatic end, don’t worry I won’t spoil it, there was a very brief…

Review: I Used To Be Normal: A Boyband Fangirl Story (2019)

Harry Potter and the Game of Thrones

Some of us may have spent the last couple of weeks moping because, once again, our Hogwarts acceptance letter has got lost in the post but at some point we just have to suck it up and accept that we are muggles. In honour of ‘Back to Hogwarts’ day, I wanted to do a Harry…

August Wrap Up & September Targets

After a rather slow start, August turned out to be a pretty great month. I was given offered my first collaboration piece, writing a review of the little indie film ‘Woodstock or Bust’ for TriCoast Entertainment. I started work on my newest feature, catching up on some of the old classics that I have yet…

Love Popcorn Milestone: 100 Posts

When I first started this blog, I had no idea how it was going to go. Would I have anything interesting to say? Would I run out of ideas? Could I balance blogging with life and working full time? Luckily, I kept it up and a couple of days ago, nine months after starting my…

Happy Wednesay Everyone! This was going to be my orginial link up for this week but it was actually a super easy one so I thought I would give it to you as a little bonus post. This one links up two Tom’s: Holland and Hollander. As is usually the case, I have taken a…

Happy Wednesday! This week sees us linking up Emma Stone with Ewan McGregor, following some big Disney news this week. First off, we’ve had our first glimpse of Emma Stone as Cruella de Vil in the 2021 (!) film, Cruella. Now I absolutely love Emma Stone anyways but it’s pretty safe to say that she…

Top Ten… Pixar Movies

The recent influx of live-action remakes of animated films has helped to increase my appreciation for the art form, I just keep my fingers crossed that they leave Pixar’s movies well and truly alone. As a way to show my appreciation of the skill and talent that goes into making an animated movie, I wanted…

It’s the summer of 1969 and two aspiring teenage singer-songwriters Meryl (Meg DeLacy) and Lorian (Willow Shields) are frustrated by their lack of prospects, tired of playing at retirement homes and birthday parties, the two best friends are looking to get some bigger gigs. An advert for Woodstock Music Festival inspires a road trip to…

Pippin: The Most Pivotal Character In Lord of the Rings

For my latest post, I thought I would do something a little different , I am going to explain to you all, why I think that Peregrin ‘Pippin’ Took is the most pivotal character in the Lord of the Rings (film) franchise. Now this might seem like a bit of a hard sell considering that…

Review: The Great Hack (2019)

At risk of making myself sound like an old Grandma on her rocking chair, I am of an age where I can remember how new the internet was. That awful dialling tone when I wanted to do research for homework, chatting to school friends on MSN, and waiting FOREVER if you wanted to download or…

Review: The Lion King (2019)

In the past I have moaned a lot about the sheer number of remakes, reboots and unnecessary sequels that are being churned out at the moment, and it seems that Disney are one of the worst culprits. The thing is, as frustrated as I am by this fact, I, along with everyone else, will trudge…

Review: Hobbs & Shaw (2019)

Who could have possibly imagined that a simple film about street racing would lead to a franchise spanning eighteen years, and counting! Admittedly, there was a rocky patch following the third film, Tokyo Drift, but the F&F franchise shifted gear (eh!!) and came back stronger than ever. I can’t immediately recall the last film to…
