Maggie is an uptight single parent who has struggled to communicate and get along with rebellious teenage daughter Summer for quite a long time. She thinks that a journey back to a Tuscan village that she visited in her younger days would help them reconnect. A first love might just spoil the plans that were in place.
As it is Mother’s Day (in the UK at least) I decided that I would then pick my 7 favourite film mothers who are the best mothers!
Molly Weasley – Harry Potter Series
What better way to start off the list than with Molly Weasley played so fantastically by Julie Walters ever present in the series and a brilliant mother to all of her children. As well as taking it upon herself to then look after Harry. Her best moment coming when stepping up to fight against Bellatrix in the finale. Certainly someone you would love to have as your mother, always looking out for you and a standard knitted sweater for Christmas!
As 2015 is coming to a close and we are about to start 2016 I thought the perfect way to do that was to take a look back in the film world at films which have fantastic New Year’s Eve scenes or moments. Might be a little bit strange considering I am not really a very big fan of New Year in all honesty and don’t have any plans myself for tonight. It probably doesn’t help that 2015 has been a truly awful year for me, but the less said about that the better. So what better way than to disappear into the world of film and see characters have some great and maybe interesting New Year’s Eve moments?
I do enjoy a good rendition of Auld Lang Syne though in all honesty and you will see that by some of the choices below!
The next five Christmas Films . . .
30. All I Want for Christmas (1991) Review
A nice enough made for TV film, it gives you a little Christmas warmth.
I have decided to do a Halloween special for the Musical Moments feature . . . Considering I usually do those posts on a Monday but thought this absolute brilliant moment from Hocus Pocus was well worthy of a slight change. I will feel the need to try and watch the full film today, but here is the little musical number. Slight Gypsy reference from Bette Midler as well? Ok yes I am a total geek I know! This was always a film that I liked a kid and didn’t find it too scary. A total guilty pleasure now 🙂
Homicide detective Tom Hardy finds himself being demoted after accusing his partner of being a serial killer. Two Years later it starts happening again, only this time its more personal when the girls being killed are ex-lovers of Hardy’s.
This film shows us how different people in New York spend their New Year’s Eve. We share the laughs and nice moments, maybe even a few tears shed as well.
I Don’t Know How She Does It . . . is all based around character Kate (SJP) who must find a balance between work and her family life.
As it coming up to September I thought that a new monthly feature on my blog is going to contain the up and coming releases for the UK in that month. This would therefore be the films that I would also hope to have the chance of seeing at my local Cineworld cinema . . . obviously if a limited release happens, then I struggle to see the smaller films. I think we should now start to see some better films coming out after the so called summer blockbuster season is now over as we enter September.
We see a wide range of genre’s opening in the month of September, so you really do have quite a broad choice of films to choose every week. This is something that has to be better than the summer which seemed to be just comic book film after comic book film . . . which I do love but it’s nice to have some different types of films out for a bit more variety!
Vampire films are still classed as being very in at the moment, although I wouldn’t complain with Colin Farrell being a vampire! But this one is going for the mix between comedy and horror, which we don’t really see very often. But not long to wait to find out how this film is!
My previous blog post about Sarah Jessica Parker’s new film ‘I Don’t Know How She Does It’ got me thinking about her career on the silver screen. She has been in quite a lot of films now, but can you actually remember many of them? I am guessing for a lot of people the answer will probably be known. Most well-known for her role as Carrie Bradshaw in the Sex and the City TV Show.
When looking at her different roles to make this list, one thing that I seemed to notice is that not many of her characters are liked by the other characters. So that probably means that audiences aren’t really too fond on them either. That could possibly be a reason why SJP is not very well received by critics and movie watchers. Although I will always consider myself a fan after Sex and the City, and always hope that she gets some good movies to appear in.
