Blogathon: 7 Films That Make Me Cry

tearjerker4_zpsy3mmxddr

This post is part of the “No You’re Crying!” Blogathon, which is taking a look at all of the different films that have moments that make us cry! Let’s face it we just love to have a good cry at a film, it really does help at times! At one point they did not really effect me very much, but now I cry for all different reasons when watching a film. So with this list I have tried to pick the seven films which have made me cry (and sob) the most considering the list in general would be rather long now. I have mixed it up a little bit with the truly sad and extremely romantic moments.

I must also warn you that due to this blog post looking at different parts of films it therefore will contain some SPOILERS.

7 Recent Movie Musicals You Should Watch!

la-la-land-audition-14_zps6jksi1x1As expected I totally loved La La Land, although I was a little bit scared that I might have been disappointed with my total love for musicals. As you will already know if you follow my blog I am very big on not only movie musicals but also going to the Theatre and have seen a lot of musicals on stage.

I am therefore a little bit annoyed and sick of people saying that La La Land has saved the musical genre, as we have actually had some fantastic musicals released to film in the past few years. The problem is though the fans of musical films seem to be few and far between now. The hype around La La Land will leave people disappointed I am sure, especially if they don’t usually like musicals.

Don’t get me wrong though as I am happy that it will help increase awareness of the genre, but I really do think that we should be thankful for some of the films we have had released over the past few years. The films I have picked in the list are from the past four years. So while we don’t get as many musical films out each year, we do still get a steady flow. I have tried to vary my choices on different types of music to really help show that no matter your music tastes you will be able to find a musical that suits your tastes.

I guess the biggest problems seem to be the adaptations from more well known stage shows, as they seem to be quite tricky to do! As I guess some scenes, songs and moments just work better on stage and don’t transfer to the screen in the best possible way. Sometimes the casting causes issues as well, but we have to just deal with that as well!

7 Films that disappointed me in 2016

Having a look at some of the films that I was left rather disappointed with in 2016, that is often due to the hype surrounding them before you get to watch them. I have noticed that Comic Book based films seem to take up most of this list. Surely that just shows that we have way too many over the past few years and it has now past the point of no return in getting loads of them each year.

Here you can see the films that I caught at the cinema during 2016!

7 Amazing Disney Villain Songs

Something always draws you towards the villains in Disney films. Maybe it just has to be that they get a truly great song! I am going to share with you my favourites here! Let’s face it Disney do very good bad guys and I certainly think that it has something to do with the actors they have doing the voices of those characters as it certainly is all in the voice, we are lucky enough to get so many of them. Which actually make you doubt if they are all that bad when they get such a great singing moment. Don’t forget to let me know which ones are your favourites!

Where better to start than The Lion King with Scar’s moment! He was just a little bit jealous. Ok very jealous and could not really help being in the shadow of his King brother. Although no excuse what he did really, but we all have to love this song, Jeremy Irons voice!

7 Reasons Jingle All The Way is the Greatest Christmas Film!

This has always been one of my favourite Christmas films (and guilty pleasures), I love Arnold Schwarzenegger. I mean come on who doesn’t? Maybe its best if people don’t answer that one though!

This post is obviously a bit of fun and just showing how many Christmas film essentials it really does have, that you might just forget about. I mean come on a dad is trying to get the latest hottest toy for his son, he doesn’t wait until Christmas Eve or anything and think it will be easy to just go and pick it up. Oh. Then gets into a battle with another dad who is also trying to find a Turbo Man doll, which creates for quite possible the worst Christmas Eve ever.
