Dennis Peck is made out to be a fantastic police officer but that is far from the case as he is completely corrupt, when Raymond Avilla arrives he quickly sees through his perfect act and becomes obsessed with eventually catching him out.

I got a place in the Chicago Marathon for 2019. So come October I will heading back to the US to take part in my second international marathon and getting my 3rd star for the Marathon Majors. So what better way to celebrate this news than having Razzle Dazzle as today’s musical moment?
So if anyone would like to recommend anything I need to do when in Chicago please comment below to help me plan my trip!
Richard Gere will be starring in MotherFatherSon on BBC2. Yes, really the Hollywood star taking on his first ever major TV role and it is going to be in the UK on BBC2 currently filming now and expected to make it onto our screens in early 2019.
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!
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!
Feel free to judge me but I don’t really care! I certainly have some strange obsessions and fangirl moments over older men. I am hoping that with this post people will either agree, understand where I am coming from or just respect my total honesty in admitting my random obsessions. This has often resulted into buying a lot of older films and rushing out to see the latest release from that actor and generally just well loving them!
