Julia Roberts attended Pretty Woman the Musical on Broadway last night and it really is just fantastic! It was a tribute performance to Garry Marshall who directed the film version of Pretty Woman, Julia was joined by Barbara Marshall for the special evening in his honour.
You may or not be aware that Julia Roberts is my all time favourite actress (Sorry Meryl/Catherine Zeta Jones) so I thought I would start a new series of blog posts 7 Greatest Performances and who better to start with than Julia Roberts? This will be looking at the best performances from different actors rather than judging just the film. I thought this would create some very good and interesting lists, as the greatest performances are not necessarily in the best films. This comes on the back of seeing Wonder over the weekend which I thought she was just amazing in!
August (Auggie) Pullman had never been to regular school before, with all of the surgery he has a baby and young child. Starting middle school was always going to be a challenge but true friendship would be made.
Exciting news today as Cineworld have announced that another Secret Screening will be taking place, it has been a rather long time since the last one! So they are just squeezing in for 2017.
Screening Type: 2D, Unlimited Preview Date/time: Wednesday, 29 November 2017 at 20:15 Runtime: 90 mins
This is the information we have been given so far and when booking your tickets. I do love that this time they have put this warning on “And to all those who are getting their hopes up that it might be an early screening of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, we’re sad to say that it definitely is NOT but we promise it’s going to be a great one!”. Which was because it caused a huge kick off when it wasn’t Star Wars back in 2015.
Let’s take a look at possible films it could be . . .
Julia Roberts swaps her box office smile to take on the role of Laura Burney a woman who is emotionally and physically abused by her controlling husband Martin. Even faking her own death in an attempt to start a new life away from him.
Everyone at the moment is apparently in love with Christian Grey again. You know that billionaire who thrives off abusing women with pain in “sex” punishments to make himself feel better.
In Fifty Shades Darker he even calls himself a sadist. He’s controlling, manipulative and suffocating. Telling you that you can’t do something and wanting you just for his own. The latter of that would or could be nice I guess but not in the way it is portrayed through his character. Does this therefore risk our ideas of love and relationships to change?
Give me Robert in Bridges of Madison County standing in the rain any day over Christian Grey and his “playroom” any day!
I wasn’t going to mention that it is Valentine’s Day . . . Honest. But every year I cannot help but come up with something to post about. Last year I went for it with some huge posts and put together 100 Romantic Films but if you are more cynical than that here is a Top 10 of Anti Valentine’s Day Films!
No better way to start off than with this incredibly amazing (and soppy) quote from one of my all time favourite films ever. You cannot help but love When Harry Met Sally!
I thought I would put together a new list this year for what I saw in 2016 (here) with the standout female performances of the year, this is going to combine the whole leading and supporting roles. Just what I have been really impressed with!
Let’s take a look at who made the list . . . Read More »
