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…
