Review: Love Actually (2003)

Whether they want to admit it or not, most people have a go-to Christmas movie, whether it’s the charming Will Ferrell comedy , Elf, or the timeless classic, It’s a Wonderful Life. For me, my Christmas movie of choice is the 2003 classic by Richard Curtis, Love Actually. Taking place during the lead up to…

Review: Klaus (2019)

Have you ever wondered where the legend of Santa Claus comes from? Why we write him letters? Or why we have all of our little Christmas Eve traditions? Well, Netflix have provided us with some answers in their heart warming new Christmas film, Klaus, which is perfect for the whole family. When Jesper’s (Jason Schwartzman)…

Movie Links #28

Happy Wednesday Everyone! I hope you’ve all started your Christmas shopping because the countdown has well and truly begun. It’s only three weeks until we’ll all be opening our presents and so for the next few weeks, my movie link-ups will have bit of a festive theme. This week, we’ll be celebrating some famous snowmen:…

Review: Let It Snow (2019)

The Christmas spirit is still going strong here at Love Popcorn with another Christmas review for you, this time we’re looking at another Netflix original, Let it Snow. It’s Christmas Eve, and a small rural town in America is hit by a snow storm. Whilst the adults are all probably using the snow as a…

Deck the halls with boughs of holly, ’tis the season to be jolly. That’s right, December is here and Love Popcorn is feeling Christmassy. Throughout December I am hoping to share a few festive reviews so if you are looking for something to watch this month be sure to keep checking out my blog. I’m…

November Wrap-Up

What a month! November saw me go from a Miss to a Mrs, spend a couple of nights sleeping in a treehouse in Wales and getting in touch with my inner princess at Disneyland Paris. Considering I wasn’t organised enough to schedule myself some posts, I’m quite happy with my productivity this month, managing to…

About Me… Best Day Ever!

As you may know, I took a mini hiatus at the beginning of this month, partly because we had a couple of trips planned but mainly because Mark and I, after eight years of dating, finally tied the knot. That’s right, I’m now a Mrs!! I wasn’t going to write a post about our day,…

Review: Falling Inn Love (2019)

In my opinion there is nothing better than a good romantic comedy, I know that’s probably not allowed in this day and age, but I don’t care, stick me in front of a screen with a rom-com and I am one happy damsel. Although I am quite content watching the same soppy film over and…

Movie Links #27

Happy Wednesday Folks!! My brain’s been so scattered lately, I haven’t done one of these link-ups for ages! We’ll start with Frozen 2 considering it’s super successful, £271 million, opening weekend which is the biggest debut for an animated film. To finish up, we’ll celebrate the passing of the Bond torch, as Daniel Craig has…

Review: Secret Obsession (2019)

One of the best things about streaming services like Netflix and Amazon is that you have so many new films and TV programmes literally at your fingertips. It is the perfect place to simply wile away an afternoon when really you should be hoovering up the cat hair and clearing the mound of washing up…

Review: Eli (2019)

Although my cinema slump is still in full flow, Netflix continues to provide enough original content to completely justify a cosy night in on the sofa, snuggled under a blanket with a bag of popcorn in our laps. Our latest watch was the horror Eli, starring Charlie Shotwell (All the Money in the World –…

Review: AlphaGo (2017)

Usually I opt for movies because I enjoy the escapism that comes with them, however over the last couple of weeks, Mark and I have been embracing the realism and diversity of documentaries. When I told Mark I wanted to re-watch AlphaGo so that I could write a post on it, he was super excited;…

Retro Review: The Shining (1980)

Considering the recent release of Doctor Sleep, the sequel to the 1980 film The Shining, I figured this was as good as time as any to cross this classic horror off of my list. First off, a quick reminder of my self -imposed rules… Should be a first time viewing. More than 5 years since…

Review: Tell Me Who I Am

There’s a whole host of new releases at the cinema lately that I really want to watch but when the weather is a bit crap, it’s difficult to drag yourself away from the comfort of home. Mind you, with the quality content that Netflix are putting out at the moment, you don’t feel like you’re…

October Wrap-Up & November Targets

Well, I think it’s pretty fair to say that October was slightly more productive than September. I had some good stats on my blog and published twelve posts, with several more in the pipeline. All I can say is ‘Thank God for Netflix’ because we only managed to make it to the cinema once this…

Top Ten… Zombie Movies

I really wanted to do a themed top ten post for Halloween but, as you may already know, horror is not one of my preferred movie genres, so I was pretty stuck with what topic to go with. However, considering I’ve recently watched Night of the Living Dead (1968) and the long-awaited Zombieland sequel, I…

Retro Review: Return of the Living Dead (1985)

This month I am treating you lovely lot to a double ‘Retro Review’ feature as we quickly followed up our first-time watch of the 1968 film Night of the Living Dead with the 1985 film, Return of the Living Dead.
