Musical Moments – About Time

Considering I have watched this film quite a few times in the past week, yes really! I forgot how much I loved it from when I went to see it at the cinema. You can check my review out here. So I have decided on the ‘How long will I love you’ version from that film for this weeks musical moments. I really do think its such a fantastic version of the song!

Blogathon: Women in Film – Hermione Granger

The Women in Film Blogathon is being hosted by John over at Hitchcock’s World and such a great idea to get you thinking about female characters in the world of film.

Here are the rules:

  1. The female character in question should have qualities that make her strong. That doesn’t necessarily mean better than the guys, just well-written; we’re trying to promote equality here, not reverse misogyny.
  2. Unlike my previous blogathon, I’m going to be a bit stricter here and say that each entry should only focus on one character. However, if you like you can write multiple entries examining different characters.
  3. If you can, do try to find less obvious choices. There are a few that I can expect are likely to get picked: Ellen Ripley, Sarah Connor, etc. If you decide to write about any the “obvious” choices, I encourage you to at least try and find something new to say about them.
  4. You are allowed to pick characters from any film from genre or time period you like.

Cineworld Secret Screening 3 – Possible Films?

The day is almost here … The third Unlimited members secret screening from Cineworld. The first was a very early preview of Now You See Me and the second was very disappointing with The Secret Life of Walter Mitty (as a preview was scheduled for the week after). So let’s hope that having one of these right before some big blockbusters are going to come out really pays off!

Blogathon: Against The Crowd

Just stumbled across this blogathon and it is a fantastic idea. With the title Against the Crowd it is pretty self-explanatory you get to pick two films which everyone seems to love and you hate, and then a film everyone seems to hate and you love. Hosted by Dell on Movies!

The Rules 

1. Pick one movie that “everyone” loves (the more iconic, the better). That movie must have a score of at least 80% on rottentomatoes.com. Tell us why you hate it.

2. Pick one movie that “everyone” hates (the more notorious, the better). That movie must have a score of less than 30% on rottentomatoes.com. Tell us why you love it.

3. Include the tomato meter scores of both movies.

 

Do you agree with my choices, or do you think I am totally mad?

Cats (UK Tour) Review

The memory returned to the North East again, this time it has been in Newcastle at the Theatre Royal for two weeks and I caught the final performance on Saturday night. This is the second time I have seen this production after seeing it at the Sunderland Empire in May 2013. Most of the cast were the same and that is such a good thing, the only noticeable change for me was someone different taking on the very difficult role of the Rum Tum Tugger. This was a bit of a shame as the current actor taking on that part isn’t quite as good as the one who was in the tour back when I saw it last year.
