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?

Kate – Home Alone

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.

7 Colin Firth Films You Might Not Have Seen!

After the release of Kingsman this week it got me thinking about Colin Firth and how good his career has been and will continue to grow. I had quite an obsession with him years ago and managed to watch a wide range of his films, so I thought I would pick seven films to include in this list of his films that you might not have seen.

I made sure to leave off what I thought to be the obvious ones and his biggest films that have been out so far!

Desert Island DVDs

Whilst trying to decide which films to include, I decided the biggest factor had to be if your able to watch it over and over again. I mean your only going to have 8 DVDs to chose from. Pointless having DVDs in there if you could not watch them over and over.

In putting together my list they had to have a good story, acting and interesting characters who you could either relate to or are very likeable.

My initial idea was to narrow it down towards the 8 films by separating the films into different genres. Then attempting to have at least one from each genre, giving a wider variety of film choice. But I am not entirely sure that actually happened when I look at my finished list.

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

  • Thought provoking and complex with a very interesting concept.
  • Brilliant performances from Kate Winslet and Jim Carrey
  • Has to be watched many times for you to really notice a lot of things in it.
  • Makes you wonder if you would erase someone
  •  Confuses you so much throughout

American Beauty

  • “Look Closer . . . ” – tagline really explains it all, that you must look closer as life isn’t always what it first appears.
  • You must look closer at everything.
  • Brilliant performances from all members of the cast, who work so well together.
  • How midlife crisis can go

  • I tried to resist all temptation of including my favorite film in this list, but the pressure got to me and I decided to include it.
  • Amazing performances and a storyline which really got to me.
  • The score by Clint Eastwood is just brilliant
