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!

Actors in Family Film Roles!

A couple of nights ago now I turned my TV on and The Flintstones was on with John Goodman as Fred, this was a film I can remember a little from my childhood and when it was first released. It them made me think about other actors that I see from these “kids” films and at the time had no idea that some of these were Oscar nominees or winners and even catching up with their older films I cannot help but remember them from the films that I watched during my younger days!

This is a blog post I have thought about putting together in the past and I have tried to come up with as many actors as possible who I have typecast in what were more family/child aimed films. Feel free to have a think about which actors you still see in this way as well! It is always quite interesting to think about which films you associate with an actor and it is usually the first one you see them in.

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!
