My Top Ten Christmas Films

My Top Ten Christmas Films

One of my favourite things to do at this time of year is to get cosy on the sofa in my pyjamas (preferably with a nice mug of hot chocolate) and put on a fun, festive film to get me in the mood for Christmas. There are so many Christmas films around now, but I always seem to come back to my old favourites and it just doesn’t feel like Christmas without them. Below is a list of my top ten Christmas film recommendations. I hope you enjoy. 1) Santa Claus (1985) The original Santa Claus movie starring David Huddleston, Judy […]


Top Ten Films I’m Looking Forward to in 2016 (with trailers)

Top Ten Films I’m Looking Forward to in 2016 (with trailers)

2016 looks like a fantastic year for films. Some of my favourite franchises are releasing sequels this year and I’m so excited to see them already. Although with a new baby, we’ll probably have to wait for them to come out on DVD. Here’s a list of the films I’m most anticipating for 2016: 1) X Men: Apocalypse, 19th May. “With the emergence of the world’s first mutant, Apocalypse, the X-Men must unite to defeat his extinction level plan.” I’ve loved the new X Men films so far-the plots and casting have been spot on in my opinion. I’m a big fan […]

J is for James Bond

J is for James Bond

Today I’m continuing with the A-Z Blogging Challenge. The aim is to write a post for every day of the month except for Sundays, with each post representing a different letter of the alphabet. This year I’m doing an A-Z of Great Britain, covering as much as I can about British music, literature, TV and film, food, wildlife and culture. For the letter ‘J’ I have chosen James Bond. The James Bond films are based on twelve books by the British author Ian Fleming- who also wrote Chitty-Chitty-Bang-Bang! He based the character of James Bond on several secret agents and commando types […]

[Image by Jeremy Keith, CC-BY-2.0] Today I’m continuing with the Blogging from A-Z Challenge hosted by Arlee Bird and his team of awesome bloggers. My theme is: Elements and features of speculative fiction and entertainment. So throughout April I will be blogging about characters, objects and themes that appear in sci-fi, fantasy and dystopian series. Today’s post is all about Zombies. Zombies are undead beings, often portrayed as rotting corpses risen from the grave. In legend and folklore they are said to feed off the brains of the living. Lacking their own, they wander mindlessly and clumsily with vacant expressions on their faces, often making a groaning sound. […]

Divergent Casting News and Fan Art

If you’re a big fan of Divergent by Veronica Roth, you will have heard that a movie is in the making for 2014 and will have probably put quite a lot of thought into who your ideal cast would be. Fans have suggested actresses such as Saorise Ronan (YES!) and Taissa Farmiga to play Tris, and actors like Steven R McQueen (Jeremy in The Vampire Diaries) and Max Irons to play Four. But this weekend it’s been announced that Shailene Woodley is in final negotiations to play Tris. This has sparked a lot of heated debate among fans on various facebook groups, […]
