Summerland (2020) Review

During World War II, Alice suddenly has an evacuee named Frank staying with her having to change and adapt her whole life around this as she attempts to write. Not really understand how he has ended up with her when you had to volunteer, but a lovely bond begins to form between the pair.

Remembrance Day – Lest We Forget!

They went with songs to the battle, they were young.
Straight of limb, true of eyes, steady and aglow.
They were staunch to the end against odds uncounted
They fell with their faces to the foe.
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them!

RIP Dame Vera Lynn

A truly incredible woman who was so lovingly and fondly known as the forces sweetheart due to her popularity during the Second World War and gave performances for the troops has passed away today at the age of 103 years old.

Her most well known song “We’ll Meet Again” has been so fondly used over the years. Along with “The White Cliffs of Dover” and “There’ll Always Be an England”.

Rest in Peace to this inspirational and amazing woman ❤️

Musical Moments – We’ll Meet Again – Vera Lynn

06EAF403-FBD7-486C-AD88-9CF092D1CFFC

We’ll Meet Again is a song that was first around in World War II and was sung to the troops by Vera Lynn before they left England to fight. The lyrics are truly poignant and powerful, last night The Queen addressed the nation and finished by saying we will meet again and other references to the war were within the speech. So since then I have been thinking about this song especially considering it reminds me of my Nanna who was evacuated during WWII so much so we had it as the final song at her funeral.

Oscars 2018 – Best Picture

Again this year nine films have been nominated for the top award of Best Picture, always creating good talking points around film as people can often never understand why some were nominated and then go onto win. I think this year is actually pretty strong and a decent range, but I will get more into each individual film.

Let’s have one last look at each of the films that have been nominated . . .
