7 Feel Good Films for Blue Monday!

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!

Top 10 – Mary Poppins Quotes

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?

Trailer: Mary Poppins Returns

The first official teaser trailer from Disney was released during the Oscars last night and it is just a perfect way to start building up for the return of Mary Poppins. I totally love the trailer and the use of the kite throughout with the music and small moments which just show that it is almost time to see her again! Well done Disney!

First Look: Emily Blunt as Mary Poppins!

Mary Poppins Returns

I might be a little bit late to the party in Blogging about this but it’s the first real chance that I have had, it certainly will not be the first post about Mary Poppins Returns which is due for a 2018 release, at Christmas. Which is just a practically perfect idea and will do incredible at the box office. Although it currently has 25th December release for the UK, I think we will find that 26th considering no cinemas open on Christmas Day.

Musical Moments – Whoopi Goldberg

On Saturday I will be at the London Palladium watching Whoopi Goldberg on the stage in her first ever UK stand up act, as well as a 30 minute question and answer session. Very excited as she has always been one of my favourites and in so many memorable films from growing up in the 90s! I am very excited about sitting in the fourth row and seeing the legend on stage so close up.

I guess I have seen her before though when she hosted the Tony Awards the year I was lucky enough to attend she even came on as Mary Poppins!

Top 10 – Theatre Shows in 2016

Before I get into the list I thought it would be a great idea to mention that you can read about my 2016 Theatre trips here so you have an idea of which shows that I had to choose from when putting together my top 10 list of the year.

When picking the shows that could be in the list, I managed to narrow it down to 16! So then having to make the final pick was rather difficult as that is how much I really did enjoy and love them.

Just missing out on the list was Rocky Horror, Guys and Dolls, The End of Longing and Wicked. It was so difficult to have to leave out No Man’s Land as it was an absolute honour seeing Sir Ian McKellen and Sir Patrick Stewart on stage. As well as Nice Fish with Mark Rylance (who is to be made a Sir).
