Musical Moments – Michael Ball & Alfie Boe (A Thousand Years)

Still so happy about seeing Michael Ball and Alfie Boe in concert on Thursday night and having a full blown with this song (again) I felt I need to have their rendition of it as my Musical Moment today.

Originally by Christina Perri for one of the Twilight films, it really is such an emotional song!

Breaking Dawn: Part II (2012) Review

The end was eventually here for Twilight and Breaking Dawn Part II was released last week with a very high number of viewers attending cinema screenings. Pretty much like the whole of the Twilight Saga, as you may know I was sucked in my the books and loved them up until half way into Breaking Dawn when I stopped reading.

Harry Potter Challenge – Day 22: Harry Potter or Twilight

No contest at all it has to be Harry Potter. Twilight should not even be mentioned alongside Potter! They do of course have one person in common and that’s Robert Pattinson who has appeared in both franchises. Cedric Diggory in Harry Potter and Edward Cullen in the Twilight saga.

Eclipse (2010) Review

Well a few hours ago I attended my first ever midnight screening of a film and it has to be said it was a very random and interesting experience. Mainly because of how many people were at the cinema for a few different screenings of the third part of the Twilight Saga, this being Eclipse. My cinema very rarely has films starting later than 9.30pm but this could be the start of more later screenings in my opinion because of the sheer volume of people in the cinema last night. Then coming out at 2am, any way onto the film. I had read the book quite a while back and probably liked it the best out of the series. Team Jacob for me.

Pretty Boy Actors: A Curse?

Being an actor and being attractive at the same time and in some cases being labelled a “pretty boy” can place a lot of extra pressure on the actor. After so long if they are not already showing brilliant acting roles they hit a point when their good looks no longer cut it in the world of film. This could be related to that if they are a young actor their “fan girls” grow up and they are still trying to do the same type of roles, this loses some of their fan base and its either show you can act or the work will dry up and you will slowly be forgotten about. But if they can act and show they can act what a career they will have!

New Moon Challenge

Last night I eventually decided to continue reading “New Moon” my new found push being that the “New Moon” movie comes out next week. Of course it will not be difficult to read the book in a week. I mean since last night I have read 180 pages . . . so I could possibly be finished it over the weekend. I knew it would eventually consume me like Twilight did, were you totally do not want to put it down! I read Twilight in such quick time. I did originally start reading this straight after Twilight but got distracted with something else . . . I cannot even remember what. But I am back on track now and have Eclipse and Breaking Dawn waiting to be read as soon as I have finished New Moon.

So Far I have to admit that I am not Edward’s friend for leaving. He has totally broke my heart . . . Bare in mind that I had already read this part before. Yet reading it last night it really hurt and struck me, I suppose I do have my reasons. I cannot really stop reading it . . .

So the challenge will continue . . .
