I wasn’t going to mention that it is Valentine’s Day . . . Honest. But every year I cannot help but come up with something to post about. Last year I went for it with some huge posts and put together 100 Romantic Films but if you are more cynical than that here is a Top 10 of Anti Valentine’s Day Films!
No better way to start off than with this incredibly amazing (and soppy) quote from one of my all time favourite films ever. You cannot help but love When Harry Met Sally!
Adam Jones was a top chef who destroyed his own career with his drug and alcohol abuse. He realises he might only have one last chance and heads to London to take charge at a top restaurant so that he gain a third Michelin star!
I have just woken up to the sad news that Garry Marshall has passed away so decided as a tribute I would pick my 7 favourite of the films he directed for this blog post. RIP Garry Marshall a man who really changed the Romantic Comedy genre!
Beaches (1988) Review
After a young woman is in a car crash she wake up in a strange room chained to the bed by her leg. Panic sets in as she has no memory of how she got there or who put her there . . .
I came across the incredible Posterity at some point on Twitter before Christmas, as someone had retweeted them for the very cool film calendar they were releasing. I then got it as a Christmas present (after sending the link on) and after that bought some of the posters. I have eventually got round to putting them up on my wall and thought it was well worthy of it’s own blog post and to encourage my fellow film fans to check out the website for the fantastic minimalistic images and some with quotes.
I have therefore picked some of my favourite quotes from my favourite films. I am sure you won’t be surprised with my choices!
Throughout the history of cinema, there have been famous duos: Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid; Han and Luke (or Han and Chewie for that matter); Doc Brown and Marty McFly; Jake and Elwood Blues. The pairings go on and on (and actually, this list sums up a lot of the best ones).
For most of the famous duos in cinema, there’s an iconic status that comes into play. We love these duos not just because they were great together on screen but because their projects have stood the test of time and now resonate as classics. That makes it a little harder to determine who the lasting, impactful duos of modern cinema will be. But in the spirit of a certain goofy movie about male models coming out soon, let’s take a stab at it anyway…
A brand new top 10 for 2015!
I thought considering how many shows I manage to see at the Theatre it would be a perfect idea to pick a top 10 from everything I have seen. This includes shows I went to see on my many trips to London as well as the touring shows we get in the North East, mainly at the Sunderland Empire and Theatre Royal in Newcastle. It really is fantastic the shows we get now direct from West End runs, I am looking forward to what the future will bring with these tours.
You can check which shows I went to see in 2015 here as well as reading my review of the whole year!
