7 Films for Halloween that aren’t really scary!

Want to get into the Halloween spirit but don’t want to actually be terrified or scared when watching films? I am sure this is something a lot of people actually want to do. It doesn’t have to be a truly terrifying film to get into the autumn Halloween spirit.

I have decided to pick out my seven favourites which could do just that, with a halloween feel but not actually going to stop you from getting to sleep. Quite a few of my choices are actually childhood favourites that I really do still love watching now as well. Take a look at the seven chosen films . . .

RIP Penny Marshall

Rest in peace Penny Marshall who passed away at the age of 75. She has been a truly outstanding role model for female directors having directed the following films Jumpin’ Jack Flash (a personal favourite of mine), Big, Awakenings, A League of Their Own, The Preacher’s Wife, Riding in Cars with Boys. All truly outstanding films! Also not forgetting her amazing cameo performance in Hocus Pocus! She was the first female director to direct a film that grossed over 100 million dollars in the US with Big!

Musical Moments – Halloween – Hocus Pocus

I have decided to do a Halloween special for the Musical Moments feature . . . Considering I usually do those posts on a Monday but thought this absolute brilliant moment from Hocus Pocus was well worthy of a slight change. I will feel the need to try and watch the full film today, but here is the little musical number. Slight Gypsy reference from Bette Midler as well? Ok yes I am a total geek I know! This was always a film that I liked a kid and didn’t find it too scary. A total guilty pleasure now 🙂

7 Films you forgot Sarah Jessica Parker was in!

My previous blog post about Sarah Jessica Parker’s new film ‘I Don’t Know How She Does It’ got me thinking about her career on the silver screen. She has been in quite a lot of films now, but can you actually remember many of them? I am guessing for a lot of people the answer will probably be known. Most well-known for her role as Carrie Bradshaw in the Sex and the City TV Show.

When looking at her different roles to make this list, one thing that I seemed to notice is that not many of her characters are liked by the other characters. So that probably means that audiences aren’t really too fond on them either. That could possibly be a reason why SJP is not very well received by critics and movie watchers. Although I will always consider myself a fan after Sex and the City, and always hope that she gets some good movies to appear in.
