Film fanatic? 5 old-ish films that I love…

I thought I would do a miniature movie post but not on current movies, instead I thought I would tackle good movies that were released ages ago or what feels like ages ago! I love movies, going to the cinema and just snuggling up watching a film, in my opinion I would say I am quite a film person purely because I watch a lot of movies all the time new and old and I love itttt!

So in this post I thought I would name a few movies that I have enjoyed in the past and I hope you’ll agree on some of them so let’s go…

  • Titanic – Oh this movie gets me every time and I end up crying about something, mainly the scene where the old couple are on the bed when all the water is rushing in – total sadness! This is on the list as well because I don’t know one person who hasn’t watched it, it has all the elements of a good movie and further to this it’s a classic!

  • Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion – One of my all time favourites! I love it because it’s so incredibly cringey and funny and the songs in it make me happy haha

  • Napoleon Dynamite – You either love it, hate it or haven’t ever watched it! (In that case get watching!) but I love this film purely because it makes me laugh no matter how many times I’ve already watched it.

  • Clueless – I never knew this film even existed until one day when I was in my early teens my mum bought me home the DVD and I thought it was going to be awful but it actually wasn’t it was the opposite!

  • Jurassic Park – One of my beloved childhood films, I can still remember pretty much most of the film by memory but it’s one of my favourites!

30 Day Photo Challenge – DAY 13 FILM

I love films! I love movies and the cinema, cosy days and nights snuggled up on the sofa under a duvet with my partner watching a DVD with tons of sweets or sitting in the cinema with ice cream & snacks waiting for the movie to start, watching those terrible yet funny and intriguing trailers and ads! 🙂

So yesterday was day 13 and the keyword was film as you would’ve guessed by now, I’m posting a day late as I was having a film night last night and was to fixated watching the movies that I accidentally forgot to post till now but I did take a photo and the photo is some of our movie collection!

Let me know if you love movies or films just as much as me and if you have any suggestions! 🙂

Books, Books, Books! – My Top 5 books I want to read.

I love reading and if you are a fellow book worm then you will love it just as much as me! When it comes to reading, I love to read books that make me think or interest me so deeply that I have trouble putting it down because to me they’re the best kind! 🙂 Going along with that line of thought, I thought that I would compile a mini list of the 5 books I want to read right now and here it goes…

  1. The Book Thief by Markus Zusak – I saw the original book a few years ago and to be honest the cover looked a little scary and I will show you why, so the cover I saw was similar to this (posted below) and it was a little girl dancing/holding hands with death (Pretty scary right!) I know you should never judge a book by its cover but this was an exception because it spooked me haha! but now I am older (20 to be exact) I can handle the book, because the trailer to the film looks pretty amazing so my expectations for the book are high.

  2. The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern – I do not know much about this book however the cover is enough to make me want to read it, it’s so appealing and enchanting. I’ve also seen a lot of bloggers review this book and give it good ratings so fingers crossed!
  3. Marie Antoinette, Serial Killer by Katie Alender – This is another book I know very little about however after reading the blurb and some reviews on it on Good Reads website I can see that this may be an interesting read.
  4. Go Down Together: The True, Untold Story of Bonnie and Clyde by Jeff Guinn – I am a bit of a history nerd, not massively but I have certain aspects of history that I really find interesting like pirates, 19th Century, medicine and of course crime and under that category falls Bonnie and Clyde. I have done lots of research and reading online but there are so many stories and tales and I think this book would be an interesting read.
  5. The Midwife’s Apprentice by Karen Cushman – I found this book whilst searching the Good Reads website and the title firstly grabbed me, I love books that are like biographies or accounts from a persons perspective and I am interested in medicine and healthcare like I already said (I want to be a nurse anyway haha) and reading about a midwife’s apprentice in medieval England.

So I hope you enjoyed my little list of what I am hoping to read soon, if there are any books you’d like to recommend then please comment and let me know 🙂

The First Time I watched Life Of Pi…

So last night I watched The Life Of Pi, anyone who has read my previous posts and my about me section will know I absolutely love movies! So since last night I watched the film and I decided to do a little review on it, it’ll only be small because as we all know it came out last year so it’s not new but I’m doing it for the people who may not have seen it! 🙂

Okay so the introduction into the story was good and smooth but perhaps took a little too long to get into the actual story of things, which for some people can be a problem as they become disinterested! but if you give it a chance and persevere then the story itself is quite cool as it goes along. One of the things I didn’t like is that the trailer made the film out to be magical which is was but there was a lot of gore and emotional parts to it as well, something which touched a nerve (as the saying goes) when I watched it. There were parts where I felt happy and enjoyed it but the beginning itself of the actual story and some parts throughout were really quite shocking in my opinion, some parts of the story as well skipped itself I believe like at one point there was a shark circling Pi on a tiny raft and then it skipped to him on a boat and the shark no where around…

Overall the story itself is a little bit crazy (Meerkats randomly on an island in the ocean that no one has ever heard of or seen?) but I guess that’s part of the whole magical experience that Pi went through, it’s more of a story about Pi finding belief than anything – which is nice. So in all don’t judge the film till you see it, it’s more adventurous and dramatic than you probably think! 🙂

Procrastination, Cinema and University life

Procrastination? Something that many students in years 10, 11, A levels and all the way to University will either proudly admit to doing or live in denial about doing it and actually do it. It’s so easy to forget you have to revise for GCSE’s or hand in a 2000 word essay on your last lecture the next morning but we all do it at some point right? I always find myself watching episodes of Hollyoaks or Eastenders, painting my nails, tweeting or scanning Facebook and then being like ‘CRAP!’ when I remember the list of tasks I have to complete, So! I am trying hard to not procrastinate this last semester of my first year of University – Not going as well as planned.

Anyway today I overslept but I didn’t mind because I had no lectures/seminars (Phew!) woke up around 4:30pm (Terrible I know but makes a change from getting up at the crack of dawn) and me and my partner decided we would go to the cinema and see Scary Movie 5, when we got to the city centre we grabbed some dinner at Nando’s in the new Trinity centre, give me chicken strip wraps with mayo and chips from Nando’s anyday! (Hold the chilli jam, I’m not a fan). We then ran in the rain to the cinema which was just down the road and got our tickets and some Ben & Jerry’s core ice cream, for anyone who doesn’t know what a Ben and Jerry’s core ice cream is it’s basically where they let you choose two flavours of ice cream then add toffee or chocolate sauce, whipped cream and chocolate drops on top…I know sounds like a sugar overload right? 🙂 Anyway Scary Movie 5 was alright, not amazing but still quite funny so go watch if that’s your sort of film!

One thing I love about sharing flats in halls at University is the fact you can pull pranks and no one will know it was you when there’s 4 or 5 other suspects as well haha! So when we got in we took all the kitchen chairs and in the hallway in awkward positions so people couldn’t get past, little childish but was fun. I can’t wait for second year though when we have our on apartment! Plus It’ll be nice to start the year fresh 🙂

Anyway hope you’re all okay! Like and follow 🙂 (Photos below!)
