Tonight I went back to the cinema after almost 18 incredibly long weeks and went to see The Dark Knight for the fourth time on the big screen but the very first time in IMAX. With so many more home viewings over the past 12 years since its release in 2008, it felt like the perfect film to welcome the cinema back into my life, had to go to Odeon with Cineworld pushing the opening date back to the end of this month. Although for IMAX I have to visit Odeon, it is only the third time I have seen a film in IMAX and it really is the most incredible way to watch a film.
Anyway for recreating the movie and the occasion of The Joker in his IMAX glory I purchased this snood/face mask for the film and here is my attempt of being the joker! I am certainly looking forward to using it during the winter for my runs!
This recreating the movie moment was not something that I had even thought about myself. A story is behind this one as Marathon Talk a podcast has a kit around the world challenge, wearing the kit around the world!
When in Chicago I was trying to find a great location for a catalogue pose in my Trust the Process Run t-shirt. I decided on the Skydeck in Willis Tower . . .
When Martin Yelling was doing this feature on the podcast he likened the location to that in Charlie and the Chocolate factory with the elevator scene! So I have to not only thank him but also be happy to have another addition to the recreating the movie section! Totally by accident and something I hadn’t even thought of 😂
Whenever I go anywhere now I always try to find some film locations to visit and on my first trip to Chicago (for the marathon) I managed to get a rather epic film location, which was a big trek but for the photos more than worth it that’s for sure!
Here you have it the Home Alone house! I am not sure if Kevin was still left inside or if the Wet Bandits were circulating the neighbourhood?
This could be my most epic post as part of Recreating the Movie yet!
Thanks to comic con and quite possibly the best £2 I will ever spend I bring you the latest in the recreating the movie posts with E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial!

Before Disney realised that it was actually a great idea to sell costumes, back in the 90s and for Christmas one year my Auntie actually made me my very own Pocahontas outfit! I had actually promised to post this photo when I reviewed the film (here) therefore when I came across this photo this morning I had to double check to see if I had posted this in my Recreated the Movie feature!
It also comes as a small tribute to my Nanna Darling who passed away six years ago today! Forever RIP to the gorgeous woman who reminded me of Joan Collins ❤️
Let’s do the time warp again … I have waited three years now to be Columbia again and throughly enjoyed seeing the Rocky Horror on stage again last night for the 7th time!
A fantastic day trip on Monday to Alnwick Castle where different scenes in Harry Potter were filmed, they also have a broomstick lesson which was certainly a lot of fun for us adults as well as kids, luckily the group we ended up in had more adults! The photo and video taking with the broomsticks afterwards was very amusing and as you can see we have done well to recreate Harry Potter!

I cannot believe that I actually forgot to post this one! But another addition to recreating the movie feature and this time it is Monsters Inc! Meeting Sully at The Word in South Shields!
Currently a Monsters exhibition is taking place at The Word in South Shields so I couldn’t resist getting involved with the King Kong part!
I decided to wait a few days before adding another movie recreation to the blog after the London trip last week. The Lego shop recently opened in Leicester Square but it has always had a queue and I decided it wasn’t really worth queuing, how wrong that is! Such an impressive shop with so many incredible Lego creations.
With Lego Batman movie out they had a very cool Batman made from Lego! I still need to try and see the film!
