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!Read More »
Can you believe it? 45 Years of The Rocky Horror Picture Show being released! Obviously I am nowhere near that old, but the film now is! The ultimate cult and amazing film that is a true cult classic.
Want to get into the Halloween spirit but don’t want to actually be terrified or scared when watching films? I am sure this is something a lot of people actually want to do. It doesn’t have to be a truly terrifying film to get into the autumn Halloween spirit.
I have decided to pick out my seven favourites which could do just that, with a halloween feel but not actually going to stop you from getting to sleep. Quite a few of my choices are actually childhood favourites that I really do still love watching now as well. Take a look at the seven chosen films . . .
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!
As you may already be aware The Rocky Horror Show has been in the North East this week and I went on opening night (in the front row) on Monday and again to a rather rowdy crowd gathering last night. Obviously I doubled up on my Columbia outfit, I did pay quite a bit of money for it so it had to be done!

Tonight I am heading to see the Rocky Horror at the Theatre (yes really again) it’s the first UK tour since 2013 although it doesn’t really feel that long ago. So I thought what better musical moment to have today than an absolute classic scene from the film version . . .
When I came across this fantastic Blogathon idea by Rachel over at Rachel’s Theatre Reviews and Rosie over at The Rosebud Cinema. It was something that I just had to get involved with, because as well as loving the cinema and films I have a passion for the theatre and seeing shows. This is something which I have now properly been doing for the past 10 years, yes realising that has made me stop and think, so it seems to be a perfect time to put together this blog post. I am going to look at all of the different shows I have seen on the stage and then also seen the film version.
Today is my 24th Birthday so I decided to make a top 10 list of birthday scenes from the movies. All different types of scenes with some brilliant ideas of what to do and what not to do on your birthday. I can relate to some of these and could possibly relate to even more of them after this birthday as well!
Well I stumbled across a post on My Filmviews blog titled Which Movie Character Would You Like To Be For The Day and decided to follow suit and complete my top 10 of movie characters I would like to be for the day. Putting this list together didn’t really take too long at all. Especially as most of the characters come from my favorite films.
I tried not to be shallow and pick characters based on their leading man . . . but I think that failed with some of the choices but I mean that had to be a coincident. I honestly didn’t do it on purpose! Yes a few of them are musical characters, maybe that’s because I am tone-deaf!
