Guy Fawkes Night

Basically this means it is the perfect date to watch V for Vendetta! More commonly known as Bonfire Night now, the 5th November in the UK marks the anniversary for an attempted plot by Guy Fawkes to blow up the Houses of Parliament in 1605.

This has led to Bonfires being lit and firework displays on and around the 5th since!

RIP John Hurt

British acting legend has sadly passed away at the age of 77. He was well known for his many film roles including The Elephant Man, 1984, Alien, V for Vendetta and featuring in the Harry Potter series. He also was a well respected actor on stage and the small screen with many roles in TV series.

Rest in Peace Sir John Hurt

 

A look back at 2006 in film!

I don’t see 2006 as 10 years ago I mean that is just madness. But it has been a whole decade now since that year, which is terrifying in all honesty. I thought it was a perfect opportunity to have a look back in this blog post at the films from 2006, the ones I enjoyed at the time, the ones I have caught up with and quite frankly the ones which are getting better with age and standing the test of ten years.

2006 was also pre-blog so I don’t even have many reviews for films from that year, if you search 2006 as a tag I am sure you will be shocked to see the lack of reviews. Especially when one of them is a bit of a strange film choice.

Top 10 – Films I Caught Up With in 2014

I always like to put together a top 10 list of films I have managed to catch up with and watch during 2014 that I had never seen before. Below you will see that I really was slacking with some of these films! Especially the Before Trilogy which I totally fell in love with.

It Happened One Night (1934) – Review

Clark Gable really is something else. This film has that groundbreaking scene of a woman’s leg in what is an amazing scene. Just showing that women can do things which men cannot! Gable gets plenty of good lines in this and the chemistry is fantastic!
