Top 5: Worst Wedding Films

This gallery contains 7 photos.

Here is the sequel to my first post, Top 10 Best Wedding Films. 

This post only has five films because it was torture watching them all and I simply couldn’t continue with it. But I could imagine that License to Wed, The Big Wedding, Made of Honor and numerous other cheap Hollywood flops would be on this list if I had the strength to watch them.

So here are a few to avoid because of either their lack of entertainment or because they bring your worst wedding nightmares to life… Continue reading

Top 10: Best Wedding Films

This gallery contains 11 photos.

As I am in the wedding spirit, I decided to indulge in some wedding films. But which ones are worth watching, and which ones are simply too cringe? As it turns out, most of them aren’t worth watching.

With intentions to watch every wedding film in movie industry, I unfortunately failed after seeing five wedding film fails in a row. It was torture. So instead of my original idea of writing a wedding film directory, it has now been split into two posts:

Top 10 best wedding films, and Top 5 worst wedding films. (I couldn’t endure watching anymore bad movies, hence the shorter list.)

So here we go, welcome to the land of Jennifer Lopez and Julia Roberts. Here are the wedding movies that I say ‘I do!’ to… Continue reading

Life of the Party

This gallery contains 5 photos.

I love Melissa McCarthy, but I lowered my expectations after reading a fair few below-average reviews about her new film Life of the Party.

This didn’t deter me though, so my brother-in-law and I went to the cinema. Within ten minutes we were choking on our popcorn during fits of laughter, and getting stitches as we tried to stifle our chortles! Almost every scene was hilarious. By the end of the film, I had mascara streaked down my cheeks and a mild headache from trying not to laugh too loud… Continue reading

Father of the Bride

This gallery contains 5 photos.

As part of an upcoming post about the top 10 wedding movies, I realised I had a lot of research to conduct.

I had originally disregarded Father of the Bride, but a few people told me it’s actually worth a watch. It’s based on a film of the same name, which was made in 1950. All in all it’s an enjoyable enough film, but unfortunately it’s also my worst wedding nightmare come to life.

It’s about a father, George Banks (Steve Martin), and his comedic journey of organising a wedding for his daughter Annie (Kimberly Williams). A lot of unfortunate yet funny things happen, particularly when the in-laws meet for the first time and when George has a break down in a supermarket… Continue reading

Imagining My Man – Aldous Harding

This gallery contains 1 photo.

A blend of Joanna Newsom’s folk style and Kate Bush’s theatrical tone makes New Zealand’s Aldous Harding.

I had never heard of her before, but apparently one of her songs is on an advert back home at the moment. 

The melody of Imagining My Man makes you melt; the soft keyboard and guitar relaxes you completely… Continue reading

Black – Danger Mouse & Daniele Luppi ft. Norah Jones

This gallery contains 1 photo.

I heard this song on the epic TV show Breaking Bad and it gave be chills immediately. Its melancholic, dreamy sound is amazing – Norah Jones’ voice was perfectly matches the tone. Choosing her to feature in this song was … Continue reading

Hard Times – Paramore

This gallery contains 1 photo.

I can’t stop listening to this brilliant song! I stopped being a fan of Paramore a long time ago, but I stumbled across this song during a busy day at work creating a new-found love for Hayley Williams’ freakishly talented vocals… Continue reading
