When Shrek is to become the heir to the land of Far, Far Away he wants to ensure Artie takes up the throne instead and embarks on a quest with Donkey and Puss in Boots. While Princess Fiona must fend off Prince Charming who has still not got over being jilted.
This is something I have been putting together for quite a long time now and I have held off posting it or even attempting to start the blog post in fear that I have forgotten and somehow missed a favourite film from the list. Barring in mind I got up to 72 films and then had to cut it down to the 50. I would like to make clear these are my favourite films, some might have happened to win Oscars as well and some certainly have not at all. The way I have decided on my favourites is the sheer joy they bring and the number of rewatches I have had over the years. While I have listed 1-50 a lot of them can be shifted around and changed with each other. It is going to highlight my love for musicals and for certain actors and actresses! I doubt it will contain many surprises though!
What better way to celebrate International Women’s Day than a collage of my favourite actresses who have brought me so much joy and escapism from watching them in films or tv shows over the years!

Harvey and Gillian Fairchild are not having the best of times. With Harvey well and truly freaking out because of his 60th birthday becoming depressed and stressed. His wife Gillian is awaiting results of a throat biopsy, something he does not know anything about.
This Monday in January is seen as being Blue Monday the most depressing day of the year, that is due to the festive period being more than over and struggling through January still waiting to be paid! Therefore I decided to put together a list of 7 feel good films which I totally love.
Isn’t escapism and being made to feel happy one of the main reasons we watch so many films? Well, it certainly is for me so I thought what better day than the most depressing of the year to think about the films that make me very happy!
The origin story of Arthur and his journey to Atlantis and the life he had been hiding from, being the heir to the throne. Having to come up against his half-brother and keeping both of his identities with the land and sea intact.
Mary Poppins is one of my all time favourite films, I still love everything about the film. Julie Andrews is practically perfect in every way as the title character Mary Poppins and while it has some tough messages, it also has some lovely feel good moments to go along with it. Not forgetting some amazing songs! So with the release of Mary Poppins Returns coming in the next few weeks, what better way to celebrate than putting together my 10 favourite quotes from the original film?
Last Monday evening I had a truly fantastic experience of seeing one of my all time favourite films on the big screen at the cinema for the very first time. I have easily seen this film over 100 times and I still cried and felt emotional seeing it on the big screen. The picture quality was truly outstanding and I really hope that more old films are screened at the cinema. Thanks Cineworld!
So this Monday I am sharing a couple of songs from the film, because they are just fantastic! I actually find it odd when people say they have never seen The Sound of Music.
Tonight The Sound of Music is back on at the cinema and I will be heading along to see it! Over the weekend I made this video as I couldn’t help but get involved in all of these It’s Coming Home videos, this popped in my head and I just had to make it!
England reaching the semi final of a World Cup, the last time that happened I was two turning three! Back in 1990!
