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!
Over the weekend I have booked up to head to New York in July for my birthday. It has been a pretty long time since my last trip there so I am very much looking forward to it. In the build up and celebration of booking thought it was only right for New York, New York to be the Musical moment today!
I will be looking to see a few shows on Broadway, if I can figure out how to find cheaper tickets as the prices are so high is unreal!
I am also going to visit film related places so if you can think of any please let me know, Katz Deli from When Harry Met Sally is certainly one place I want to go!
Quite strange that I was sat in the foyer at the cinema as this news broke, waiting to see Rogue One: A Star Wars story! I figure that is a fitting tribute to the actress most well known for her role as Princess Leia in Star Wars. Not forgetting one of my all time favourites ‘When Harry Met Sally’.
Such sad news especially after it was announced on Christmas Day that she was in a stable condition. An inspirational woman who will be truly missed, always spoke openly and honestly. Thoughts are with all of her family and friends.
Rest in peace Carrie!
May the force be with you x
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!
I am 28 years old today.
Ahhh pushing to close to 30 for my liking!

I went to see the latest UK touring production of Oklahoma over the weekend (review will be up soon) so that is why I have decided to post a couple of videos for this week’s Musical Moments.
Ok so it’s Monday so your thinking no it really cannot be a beautiful morning, so I decided to even it out by picking Hugh Jackman’s performance 😉
Also a clip from one of my favourite films ‘When Harry Met Sally’ involving Billy Crystal and a karaoke machine as he sings a little bit of ‘Surrey with a Fringe on Top’ ❤
This is one of those films which has grown on me over the years. It took me a while to catch up and watch it, but I am so pleased I have. The more I watch it the more I love it and think it’s a pretty incredible film, the script is fantastic which has led to this blog post. So many fantastic lines and conversations that it was actually very difficult to just pick 10 quotes from this film! Billy Crystal really can deliver a line and I am sure you will notice a lot of these come from the wisdom of Harry. If you haven’t seen this film, you really need to. Let’s Go To The Movies Review – if you want to read more about it.
This is without a doubt still one of the smartest and best romantic comedy films around. Harry and Sally met one night and over time became friends and even learnt to love one another.
As I have nothing better to do. I thought I would post some movie quotes which are romantic, about love or just lovely.
“Sometimes I wish I had never met you. Because then I could go to sleep at night not knowing there was someone like you out there.” (Good Will Hunting)
“True love lasts a lifetime.” (Love Actually)
“When you realise you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible.” (When Harry Met Sally)
“I know who you are. I love you. I love everything about you that hurts.” (Closer)
“Where is this love? I can’t see it, I can’t touch it. I can’t feel it. I can hear it, I can hear some words but I can’t do anything with your easy words.” (Closer)
“After all, I’m also just a girl, standing in front of a boy asking him to love her.” (Notting Hill)
“Take love, multiply it by infinity and take it to the depths of forever . . . and you still will only have a glimpse of how I feel for you.” (Meet Joe Black)
“Love is passion. Obsession. Someone you can’t live without. Someone you fall head over heels for. Find someone you can love like crazy, and will love you the same way back. Listen to your heart. No sense in life without falling deeply in love, you haven’t lived a life at all. You have to try, because if you haven’t tried, then you haven’t lived.” (Meet Joe Black)
“Thats why they call them crushes. If they were easy they’d call them something else.” (Sixteen Candles)
“I love you without knowing how, why or even from where.” (Patch Adams)
“There are millions of people in the world, but in the end it all comes down to one.” (Crazy/Beautiful)
“The only wrong thing would be to deny what your heart truly feels.” (The Mask of Zorro)
“The greatest thing you’ll ever learn is just to love and be loved in return.” (Moulin Rouge!)
“Have you ever had a romantic moment make you do something that you knew was stupid?” (As Good As It Gets)
“You complete me.” (Jerry Maguire)
“You had me at hello.” (Jerry Maguire)
“I wish I knew how to quit you.” (Brokeback Mountain)
“Tell you what. The truth is . . . sometimes I miss you so much I can hardly stand it.” (Brokeback Mountain)
“The best love is the kind that weakens the soul, that makes us reach for more, that plants fire in our hears and brings peace to our minds. And thats what you’ve given me. Thats what I hope to give you forever.” (The Notebook)
“Sometimes we love people so much that we have to be numb to it because if we actually felt how much we loved them . . . it would kill us.” (Riding in Cars with Boys)
“Do you know that place between being asleep and awake, thats where you still remember your dreams? Thats where i’ll always love, thats where i’ll always wait for you.” (Hook)
“I didn’t come back to tell you that I can’t live without you . . . I can live without you . . . I just don’t want to.” (Rumor Has It)
“I would rather have had one breath of her hair, one kiss from her mouth, one touch of her hand, than eternity without it.” (City of Angels)
-“Your not going to let me back in there are you? You’ve got your armour back on tahts that.” -“I have no armour left. You’ve stripped it from me. Whatever is left of me . . . whatever is left of me . . . whatever I am . . . I’m yours.” (Casino Royale)
“Death cannot stop true love it can only delay it for a little while.” (The Princess Bride)
“I’d rather die tomorrow than live a hundred years without knowing you.” (Pocahontas)
“Love is like the wind . . . you can’t see it, but you can feel it.” (A Walk to Remember)
“You can’t help who you love, you’re not supposed to.” (Save the Last Dance)
“I’d rather spend a lifetime with you, than to live all the ages of this world alone.” (Lord of the Rings)
“Me? I’m scared of everything. I’m scared of what I saw. I’m scared of what I did of who I am and most of all I’m scared of walking out of this room and never feeling the rest of my whole life the way I feel when I’m with you.” (Dirty Dancing)
“You are my life now.” (Twilight)
“You’re going to meet the most extraordinary men, the sexiest, brightest, funniest men and you’re going to fall in love with so many of them and you won’t know until the end of your life who your greatest friends were or your greatest love was.” (Milk)
