Why I am so pleased I grew up with the Spice Girls!

Sometimes I guess we get rather lucky with time and when things happen. That is something I feel so lucky about when it comes to the Spice Girls, I just so happened to be 8 turning 9 as they released Wannabe back in 1996 and I was given a girl group that was for everyone. I was sporty and loved football, I was given an amazing role model in Sporty Spice who also loved football and wore tracksuits and football shirts. I knew then that it was perfectly ok to be a girl and be sporty! I kinda don’t feel that is the message sent out now and certainly not from the girl groups that have been around in the past twenty years. They are all really girly and often wear very inappropriate clothing and don’t set the best example for young girls in my opinion.

Blogathon: 7 Childhood Films – Animation

When putting together my 7 Childhood Films for the Childhood Films Blogathon I am hosting I realised that I had not actually put any animated films in! Now that is such a silly thing to do really considering animation is a big part of what you will watch as a child. So I decided to submit another post and have 7 animated films from my childhood in this blog post!

I was never massively into the Disney Princess thing so that will just clarify why not many of them are included in this list. I was going to cheat and include Space Jam with it being part animated but resisted that temptation!

Announcement: Childhood Films Blogathon

I have decided to attempt to host my second Blogathon here on Let’s Go To The Movies. The first one went well, but was not a massive success. So I am hoping that this one will more than make up for it!

With the release of Jurassic World and all the talk heading back to Jurassic Park which is very much one of my childhood films the idea for this Blogathon came about. So I thought why not make it into a Blogathon and learn more about your fellow bloggers and if they still actually like any of their childhood films.

Never Let Me Go (2010) Review

As children Kathy, Tommy and Ruth are all at the same school. What appears to be a normal boarding school, Hailsham. But it is far from normal and all of the children who attend the school are far from normal. As they grow into young adults, they find that they have to come to terms with the strength of the love they feel for each other, while preparing themselves for the haunting reality that awaits them.
