This is a place for lists! It was going to be a ‘Top Five’ kinda deal, but I ended up doing Top Threes, Top Fours and Top Tens… TAKE FIVE!

Top 20: Best Mums in Movies

This gallery contains 22 photos.

I was thinking about the actresses who always get cast as the motherly characters in movies, and the same names kept coming up. So I decided to put together a list of the best mum characters in the movies and the eight actresses who play them.

(I probably should have done this around Mother’s Day but I forgot.)… Continue reading

Well. It’s official. As of June 20, I turn 25 years old and I’m experiencing what can only be referred to as a quarter life crisis. So I have found comfort and inspiration in 25-year-old films that are successful.

Here’s a list of the highest-grossing ones that were released in 1993… Continue reading

Top 10: Best Animated Horse Characters

This gallery contains 12 photos.

Even though the majority of animated horses on the big screens are simply ‘white stallions’, many of them play prominent roles as the hero’s side-kick (no pun intended). Strangely all the horses are male… Anywho, here are the best animated equine characters… Continue reading

Mowgli and The Jungle Book: The Twin Movie Phenomenon

This gallery contains 9 photos.

I’m sure you all felt the same way when you saw the recently-released Mowgli trailer: ‘Haven’t I seen this before… Rather recently?’

The short answer is ‘yes’: The Jungle Book (2016) and Mowgli (2018)

The live-action version of The Jungle Book was released only two years ago, which was received rather successfully. So why make another? Basically, the difference is that Mowgli was made by Warner Brothers Studios whereas The Jungle Book was made by Disney Studios.

After looking into it, this ‘twin movie phenomena’ has been documented before here and here. It’s films with two identical plots that are released at around the same time… Continue reading

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.

I’m sure everyone holds a Disney animation close to their hearts because of its influence on our childhoods. (Mine is Sleeping Beauty (1959), which I grew up watching on VHS throughout the nineties.) Even today, children are still growing up watching Disney films.

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.

It seems we can’t stop loving the old stories. Or, perhaps the old-fashioned animations don’t fascinate the iPad-savvy kids of today… Continue reading

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
