My Most Inspirational Films

It’s never easy when you lose your motivation. Being completely uninspired can leave you feeling helpless and unsure of yourself, not to mention isolated. Most of us have been there. I experienced it for the first time about 2 weeks ago when I was unwell and unfortunately in a fair bit of pain. As someone who is normally a very happy, positive person with a ‘don’t let the bastards bring you down’ attitude (thank you Brian Blessed), I made a few changes to help me feel healthier and get back my normal, determined attitude! Firstly, I made sure I got out of the house. It’s amazing what a bit of fresh air can do! I spoke to my family and friends, went back to the gym and I watched a few films that really helped me feel revitalised and inspired once again. 1. Dead Poet’s Society I watched this for the first time a few weeks back and it’s already become one of my favourites. I adore Robin Williams; he’s just spectacular as the teacher …


2013 In Film: My Most Anticipated Movies Part 1

Okay, so there are some seriously good films coming out this year. I’ve been reading far too many updates and watched more trailers than is probably considered healthy. I’ve *somehow* whittled it down to my top 5, and the next best 10. But fear not… I’ve broken this post down into 2 different parts, so as to hopefully keep you lot from getting bored!

Right, lets start… 1. Man Of Steel – 14th June 2013 All right, who’s surprised this ones here? No one? I thought so. Not only does this film feature my future husband as the hero himself (shut up), but it also has my favourite composer Hans Zimmer behind the musical wheel. Already this film can do no wrong! The trailer had me hooked in seconds. Giving the audience a glimpse of the action; what looks …

Taken 2 Movie Review

Taken 2 Review

“What are you going to do?” “…What I do best.” WARNING: Possible Spoilers! I was very apprehensive about seeing this film. I’d been waiting a little obsessively since the first one and so to hear somewhat negative feedback from other reviews and friends was pretty disheartening. I’ve never been one to pay much attention to other peoples thoughts on a film (or book) as I definitely like to make up my own mind, but as this film was a must-see for me I was worried it wouldn’t live up to my expectations… Oh, but it did. I thought the film was simply AMAZING. Like most sequels I definitely didn’t expect it to compare to the first, but you know what? To me, it did. You start at what I presume is a few months after the first film. The Albanian men who died at the unbeatable hands of Brian Mills are being buried and you see the remaining family plotting their revenge. Joining Neeson’s character back in LA, we see that Lenore’s separated from her …
