Looking Forward to: Can You Ever Forgive Me?

Has Melissa McCarthy done drama before? This is the first non-comedy film I’ve seen her in anyway. It looks like a gripping tale. Can You Ever Forgive Me? is based on a true story about Lee Israel who is a … Continue reading

My Favourite Scene: Dead Poets Society

This gallery contains 1 photo.

I adore Dead Poets Society. It is so inspirational, with the tragedy and comedy of life being woven through this film thanks to the talent of Robin Williams as John Keating.

Top 7: Live-Action Disney Remakes Coming Soon

This gallery contains 8 photos.

Disney has been creating films since 1923, beginning with an Alice in Wonderland cartoon series. But it wasn’t until 1937 that the memorable Snow White and the Seven Dwarves animation was released. Ever since then, Disney Studios has had a fairytale film career with many major successes.

Disney is continuing with its successful films about princesses and magic, but more live-action remakes of the classics are in development rather than brand new animated tales.

Looking Forward to: 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
