I thought it was about time to take a little look back at the world of film a whole decade ago, yes really we have had Heath Ledger’s Joker for that long now! I was seriously hoping for a re-release at the cinema in all honesty, felt it would have been perfect to celebrate the 10th anniversary.
I am going to take a look at some of the films that I enjoyed most from 2008, this might be looking back to having seen them for the first time at the cinema or just catching up with them later. It’s actually quite scary when you look back 10 years and not realise which films were actually released then and we can now call old. I would think most of them are standing the test of time pretty well in all honesty.
I promise that this is my very last post about my New York trip (honestly) it might just stem some film related posts though, but don’t worry I still have a few film/tv related photos to share. Some of them are from knowledge gained on the On Location Central Park and/or Bus Tour.
Following the walking tour in Central Park the next day it was time for the Bus TV and Movie tour. Which was leaving next to Ellen’s Stardust Diner which meant we just had to go back for breakfast! To start the tour we are shown a DVD which would go onto show us many different clips from films throughout so we can remember just what scenes were filmed at the location we were currently at, heading to or had been at!
Before heading to NYC I had booked in two tours with On Location Tours, which are all TV and Movie themed. Showing the different filming locations in New York City from so many movies that you know and love.
The first one we did was the walking tour around Central Park which was only $12 due to a combo booking with the Bus Tour.
As 2015 is coming to a close and we are about to start 2016 I thought the perfect way to do that was to take a look back in the film world at films which have fantastic New Year’s Eve scenes or moments. Might be a little bit strange considering I am not really a very big fan of New Year in all honesty and don’t have any plans myself for tonight. It probably doesn’t help that 2015 has been a truly awful year for me, but the less said about that the better. So what better way than to disappear into the world of film and see characters have some great and maybe interesting New Year’s Eve moments?
I do enjoy a good rendition of Auld Lang Syne though in all honesty and you will see that by some of the choices below!
Another reason why I have had lack of film review updates for older films is due to the fact that I decided to watch Sex and the City from start to finish all 6 seasons. Then after that I started watching The Golden Girls, after they eventually released the first 4 seasons on DVD in the UK! Lets face it what better option do you have after watching SATC than jumping straight into SATC in older age . . . being The Golden Girls.
Yes that’s right pure HMV . . . a card which you use every time in store or online to collect points. But what can you buy with these points I hear you ask. Well you can buy things that money can’t buy you (well it probably could but not from HMV itself).
I have had my card for a few weeks now and just wish i’d had it for a long time now as I would have quite a lot of points built up. Today I went into HMV and came out with one DVD (yes I did say I was not going to buy any more DVDs until I watch the ones I already have, but I found a loop hole that I have already seen the film I bought, that being Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind). I also bought two books Up in the Air (because I loved the film so much) and Love Letters of Great Men and Women . . . because it said inspired by Sex and the City on the front. Yes I am way too obsessed with SATC, but hey it might regain my belief in love. Or it will make me resent it even more time will tell I guess.
The first poster has been released for the second Sex and the City movie which comes out next year, I really cannot wait for this movie to come out. Yes if you have never read my blog before you will probably not know that I am a massive SATC fan. I like the “Carrie on” tagline on the bottom 🙂 with a big 2 in the background. No need to have Sex and the City written on it.
Because I am such a massive fan of Sex and the City (SATC) and have seen all of the episodes loads and loads of times. Along with the movie, and with the build up to the second movie in full swing because of all the on-set pictures. I decided that I am going to revisit every episode thanks to my DVD collection which just happens to be in a small shoe box . . . yes I have the full lot all in one box. So I am going to review each episode . . . This could take a while or it could not take too long at all. So . . . watch this space . . .
Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda are going to be watched and enjoyed yet again, along with their many men over the seasons and years and of course Mr. Big.
I will be putting in my views on the main issues in each episode.
Carrie Bradshaw is a New York City writer and is eventually getting marry her Mr. Big, will he turn up though? Everything is then placed on her three best friends to pick up the pieces when everything in true Carrie fashion goes terribly wrong.
