Feel free to judge me but I don’t really care! I certainly have some strange obsessions and fangirl moments over older men. I am hoping that with this post people will either agree, understand where I am coming from or just respect my total honesty in admitting my random obsessions. This has often resulted into buying a lot of older films and rushing out to see the latest release from that actor and generally just well loving them!
After seeing Allied last night it got me to thinking about how much I have always been into World War II. Although when I decided to put this list together I have now realised that I have not actually seen as many of the films based on this War as I actually expected. I therefore picked my seven favourites that I have seen (so far). Please let me know which ones are your favourites and which ones I should really watch!
I have tried to have quite varied choices!
Bridget Jones is pretty much sick of her singleton life style and vows to make some serious changes. Through her diary entries we get to go along on the crazy ride as she attempts to find true love.
Bridget Jones is back and she never kept her happy ending with Mark Darcy. She has just turned 43 and still very much single, decides to change her life choices which leads to becoming pregnant. One problem, the baby has two possible fathers.
With the up and coming release of Bridget Jones’s Baby I thought I would put together a list of my favourite quotes from the previous two films, Bridget Jones Diary and Bridget Jones: Edge of Reason. The first film I remember not enjoying when I first saw it but grew on me in time for Edge of Reason. Not forgetting starting my love for Colin Firth, oh Mark Darcy!
The thing with Bridget Jones is that it takes a pretty normal woman and that means everyone will be able to relate with some of the stupid things she says and/or does. It is very British at times as well, which just makes it even better. I read the two books many years ago, they really are written in such a fantastic way!
The first trailer was released last week for the third instalment of Bridget Jones (which has gone a totally different way to the third book). I have only got round to posting about it now but my initial reaction was why why why?!?!
This has been a really difficult list to put together this year as initially picking my best films from 2015 I had 17 in contention to make my top 10, which I think is very surprising but also pleasing to know that I actually enjoyed and liked a lot of films in 2015. It was rather difficult to narrow it down and I am sure this could have seen the films changed around depending on when I completed the list. Something which I am thinking having a running ranking system for 2016.
Didn’t manage to make the top 10 but were very close . . . Inside Out, Kingsman: The Secret Service, The Lady in the Van, Suffragette, Ricki and the Flash, The Martian, The Lobster.
So here we go my top 10 films of 2015 . . .
As Daniel Craig’s era as Bond is coming to an end (after one more, come on he has always been contracted to it right?) But I thought after completing the Bondathon I would look to see possibilities of actors who could take on the role next.
Here are the ages the different actors started and finished as Bond. Quite interesting really as I think both Connery and Craig looked older than they were in their first films. The fact Lazenby wasn’t very popular and under the age of 30 I can’t really see them picking someone very young to take on the mantel.
Roger Moore 44-57
Timothy Dalton 42-44
Pierce Brosnan 41-49
Daniel Craig 37-47
Sean Connery 31-40
George Lazenby 29
I have literally picked loads of actors who could be possibilities, split them into different ages and tried to decide if I can see them as Bond or not. Some of them though I think would work perfectly well as a bad guy, come on don’t Brit’s seems to make the best bad guys? I was originally going to come up with 7 possible actors but I thought that was pretty impossible as we really have no idea which direction they are going in. I have stayed British with the actors listed, as let’s face it we have some very talented Brits doing us proud on the big screen! Also I have picked photo’s of them in a Tux, as come on that’s a very important part of becoming Bond. James Bond.
