F1F7A52A-12EE-4E1E-863D-FB90A1227C71

You wait seven months for another Secret Screening from Cineworld and in less than a week they announce two! So we no have number 12 on the way only twenty days after number 11! I have therefore decided to put together a second blog post and have left some films for this one as well with the dates fitting but also extending it!

Date: Monday 29th July 2019

As usual I will try and put together some guesses on films that it could be, my track record isn’t great but I do love looking forward and seeing which films are due to be released around this time. The 10th Secret Screening turned out to be Oscar Best Picture winner Green Book!

Nothing Like a Dame (2018) Review

8316_6080

Nothing Like a Dame is a truly fantastic documentary where four outstanding actresses with amazing careers sit down and have a chat, about the good old days and how things have changed. Considering my love for film and the theatre this really was the perfect watch for myself. Brilliant to see four women who have achieved so much given the opportunity to get together all now over eighty years old!

25 Things to Love about Hook!

Hook turns 25 today so what better to celebrate that than coming up with plenty of things to love about the very different tale of Peter Pan? Even if like myself you do not want to admit that one of your childhood favourites is this old as it also means you are therefore older than the film!

I have always seen this as my Peter Pan film as other than the Disney animated version this was the newest one that came out when I was a kid and plus Robin Williams totally owned the 1990s when it came to kids films. He really was our actor, the best thing I think is that these performances have stood the test of time and are really something special.

I just love what Steven Spielberg was doing with this story though what if he did grow up, how would he actually be in life? Would he remember Neverland or was that all just a silly “dream”. I know this film seems to get a little flack but I certainly love it, always have and always will!

Don’t forget to let me know your thoughts about the film! Was this your Peter Pan story? As we certainly have had plenty more since this was released 25 years ago and I still think it is the best one we have had in that time, even though many have tried to re-invent it I think this remains so unique.
