Here we got the winners of the 2018 Golden Globe Awards, looking forward to eventually seeing a lot of these films over the next couple of months!
The Greatest Showman is an original musical film that looks at P. T. Barnum and how he helped create show business and everything around it. How he rose from nothing to create a spectacle and a legacy that would be continued.
As you already know I am such a huge lover of musicals and have already posted the trailer for The Greatest Showman when it was released a few months ago. I am a little bit slow by a couple of days to spot the first poster has been released for the film. That is due out over the Christmas/New Year period, starring the incredible Hugh Jackman, he has a background from Broadway and isn’t just Wolverine 😉
Hugh Jackman back in a musical, yes please! That is what we want to see more and more of, leading the line for the big onscreen musicals. Taking on the role of P. T. Barnum who really changed everything in the entertainment world. I have seen the stage show, which wasn’t overly impressive. But luckily this film looks like it is going to be on another level completely.
Another I busy month at the cinema in preparation for the Oscars and fitting in the nominated films which were continuing to be released at the cinema.
Cineworld Unlimited pass which costs £17.40 per month, so seeing 8 films cost me a £2.17. Yes it was 9 films but I went to Empire Cinemas to see Fences due to the initial limited release!

In a future world with not many mutants left a weary Logan cares for an ailing Professor X in a hide out on the Mexican border. His attempt to hide from the world and legacy as part of the X-Men is about to come crashing down when a young mutant turns up with a lot of similarities.
This album is rather impressive as it combines theatre songs with some very well known actors to sing with the legend that is Barbra Streisand. I first heard about it on a feature from Good Morning Britain who showed clips of the recording sessions along with a very excited Jamie Foxx. Brilliant to see how much of a big star Streisand is!
I was so curious about this album that I went straight onto Spotify to see that only one song was available so therefore iTunes to buy it!
With so many superhero films bombarding us over the past few years I have decided to put together a top 5 list of my favourites!
I don’t see 2006 as 10 years ago I mean that is just madness. But it has been a whole decade now since that year, which is terrifying in all honesty. I thought it was a perfect opportunity to have a look back in this blog post at the films from 2006, the ones I enjoyed at the time, the ones I have caught up with and quite frankly the ones which are getting better with age and standing the test of ten years.
2006 was also pre-blog so I don’t even have many reviews for films from that year, if you search 2006 as a tag I am sure you will be shocked to see the lack of reviews. Especially when one of them is a bit of a strange film choice.

Eddie Edwards is well known as Eddie the Eagle in England due to his crazy attempts at the Ski Jump and making it to the Olympics. It all started when he was a child and told to give up sport but he always dreamed of one day being an Olympian.
