North East Pantomimes 2018!

Last year I put a list together of all the Pantomimes taking place in and around the North East. This year I thought I would put it together a lot earlier, so hopefully it will help raise awareness which Pantos are on during the festive season!

(If any of the venues would like me to come and review the show I would be more than happy to do that!)

7 Worst Film Mothers

As it is Mother’s Day (in the UK at least) I decided that I would then pick my 7 worst film mothers. You certainly would not want any of these to be your mother as they certainly did not help their children have, but some of them might just redeem themselves in the end?

Leaving your son behind when heading on holiday is a pretty awful thing to do. Kevin had an amazing time being home all alone after his whole family jetted off for Christmas without him. We will give it to Kate that she had a feeling something was wrong, but not checking you have all your children was a very bad move. I guess airports have changed a lot since the early 90s and they wouldn’t get that far to this day. We will give her points for doing everything she can to then get back to Kevin as soon as possible.

Oscars 2016 – Nominations

2014-01-16-Academy-Awards-Oscars-Generic-jpg

Here we go the nominations for the 2016 Oscars!

Still seen as the biggest awards in film and most prestigious, maybe a couple of surprises in terms of not getting a nomination but the majority is probably expected. Maybe the Academy should release the nominations before the rest of the awards and it wouldn’t be as easy to try and predict them? I will be doing plenty of posts for the big awards once I have seen the rest of the films, we have a busy couple of weeks coming up in the UK!

Best Picture
The Big Short
Bridge of Spies
Brooklyn
