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

Looking Forward to: The Incredibles 2

This gallery contains 1 photo.

I thoroughly enjoyed The Incredibles. I wouldn’t say I’m a die-hard fan, but I’d definitely like to see this sequel when it graces our cinemas on June 15 – a mere five days before my birthday. A coincidence? I think not.

The Incredibles 2 features all our favourite characters… Continue reading

My Fave Ad: The Marmite Gene Project

This gallery contains 1 photo.

This advert made me laugh so much that I had to find the advert on YouTube to send to my parents in New Zealand – they loved it too!

It’s about families taking a test to find out if they love or hate Marmite. The test results come through the post as though it’s a serious medical condition and the reactions are hilarious! Continue reading

Why I Love the Harry Potter Franchise

This gallery contains 15 photos.

“Merlin’s beard! You must be Harry Potter!”

Harry Potter has been a name I have been familiar with since the age of six. My uncle in Scotland rang my mum to ask if she had heard of a series that’s rising in popularity, a series about a magical boy with glasses. She hadn’t. None of us had really, not down here in New Zealand where we were simply surrounded by Ringers (Lord of the Rings fans)… Continue reading

My Fave Ad: Lloyds Bank – Black Horses

This gallery contains 1 photo.

I’m a sucker for brilliant television adverts. I know they’re only doing it to sell us something, but you can’t deny the talent behind them. Therefore, I’m embarrassed to say that I am writing this review on a bank’s TV advertisement by choice, and sadly not being paid… Continue reading

My Fave Characters: Jess and Nick in New Girl

This gallery contains 3 photos.

The characters who make it cool to be weird and poor (respectively).

In the TV show New Girl, (at least the first three seasons of it anyway), I have found it to be a faint source of inspiration. Getting the kind of security you get after watching Miranda, Bridget Jones and Maggie Jacobs from Extras… Continue reading

Looking forward to: Suffragette

This gallery contains 4 photos.

I have watched every teaser, trailer, clip and interview to do with this movie. I am so excited to see it. Suffragette is based on a group of British women in the late 19th century and early 20th century who demanded gender equality. Their political action shook the system, which goes to show what a threat they were to the societal hierarchy. Continue reading
