A retelling of the classic Disney animated film of the story of a Prince who is cursed to be a Beast until he can love someone.
The Women in Film Blogathon is being hosted by John over at Hitchcock’s World and such a great idea to get you thinking about female characters in the world of film.
Here are the rules:
- The female character in question should have qualities that make her strong. That doesn’t necessarily mean better than the guys, just well-written; we’re trying to promote equality here, not reverse misogyny.
- Unlike my previous blogathon, I’m going to be a bit stricter here and say that each entry should only focus on one character. However, if you like you can write multiple entries examining different characters.
- If you can, do try to find less obvious choices. There are a few that I can expect are likely to get picked: Ellen Ripley, Sarah Connor, etc. If you decide to write about any the “obvious” choices, I encourage you to at least try and find something new to say about them.
- You are allowed to pick characters from any film from genre or time period you like.
Based on the biblical tale of Noah, the man chosen by God to save the good that is left in the world and to rid it of all evil which is destroying his creation.
Colin Clark spent a week with Marilyn Monroe when she was in England filming The Prince and the Showgirl with Laurence Olivier.
I have just returned from a midnight showing of the second part of the deathly hallows, that being the final Potter film in the franchise. We pick up straight away from where we were left off at the end of part one, and reminded how Voldemort took the Elder Wand from Dumbledore’s grave.
The beginning of the end for me is at 12:05am Friday 15th July . . . that’s right I am heading to a midnight screening of the final Potter film when it all ends! Let’s take a small look at some of the scenes that have been talked about by the cast and we have had small clips of in the trailers. I have left out a couple as the spoilers in them would be too much!
One of the biggest talking points has been the long-awaited kiss between Hermione and Ron. Something which the actors who see each other more like brother and sister were totally dreading.
For once and for all we will find out what Severus Snape’s story is and which side he is really on. This is something that has kept everyone guessing throughout the entire series. If we start thinking he’s good something happens and we think he’s bad again and vice versa. This has to be the part I am most looking forward to in it’s adaptation from the books, as it actually made me sob!
Neville’s Finest Moment
We have all watched Neville struggle over the years, as everything always seemed to go wrong for him with a wand in his hand. In each class if something happened it always seemed to be to him. But in the final stand and the battle of Hogwarts this is Neville’s finest moment when he proves that he is indeed a brilliant wizard doing his mother and father proud.
Harry and Tom
It all started with the curse going wrong on one year old Harry Potter and now Tom Riddle . . . Lord Voldemort face off. We all know that only one of them can survive but which one will it be? We have seen small clips from this part in the trailers and the anticipation growing towards it is massive.
The 6th year at Hogwarts and everything is becoming darker as we begin to find out about Lord Voldemort’s past. Harry finds a potions book with ‘the half-blood prince’ written in. A favorite character is killed . . .
After the return of Lord Voldemort at the end of the Goblet of Fire. We are wondering how the wizarding world are going to react to it all. Well the answer to that is badly, as the minister of magic tries to claim that Dumbledore and Harry are making it all up. But we all know that is not the case . . .
