Top 5: On-Screen Lovers Who Disliked Each Other Off-Screen

This gallery contains 5 photos.

After finding out that Kathleen Turner and Nicholas Cage weren’t the best of friends in Peggy Sue Got Married, I decided to find out what other on-screen romances were less than genuine. Apparently there are a few!

It’s a shame that our favourite on-screen couples turn out to be played by people who strongly dislike one another. But from their point of view, what an awful situation to be in! It’s hard enough working with annoying or difficult people, but imagine having to pretend to be in love with them. Ugh. I guess that’s why actors are paid so much… 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

Good Morning, Vietnam

This gallery contains 4 photos.

A unique tale about the Vietnam war, seen through the eyes of an extraverted radio presenter, Adrian Cronauer (Robin Williams), who has been hired as a DJ on the Armed Forces radio station in Vietnam.

Cronauer is an outlandishly hilarious DJ who keeps the troops’ spirits up while serving in  Vietnam. While most love him, Lt. Steven Hauk (Bruno Kirby) certainly doesn’t. Hauk’s dry, wooden ‘humour’ (or lack thereof) is hysterical, and he believes he can do a far better job on air. So the rivalry begins… Continue reading

Top 10: Actors Who Regretted Their Iconic Roles

This gallery contains 10 photos.

I never considered it before, but some actors genuinely regret roles they have accepted. I guess it’s quite difficult to tell if a film will be good or not when all you have to go on is a black and white script. I suppose there’s a lot of trust involved in accepting a role.

Some of these actors regret the roles because the film was a flop, and some of them resent their character because it made them internationally famous… Continue reading

The Couple Next Door – Shari Lapena

This gallery contains 1 photo.

I’ve heard this book is considered to be the next best thriller since The Girl on the Train. While it is most certainly a page-turner (I don’t think I’ve ever read a novel this quickly before), I don’t think the storyline or mystery is on par with The Girl on the Train.

Of course, the money’s in the bag within the first couple of chapters. Playing on everyone’s worst fear of having their child go missing is a gripping basis for a novel. But there were a few major flaws to this story that meant that what began as a brilliantly horrifying story soon turns into an un-mysterious tale… Continue reading

Peggy Sue Got Married

This gallery contains 6 photos.

I’ve watched Peggy Sue Got Married with Dad before, and I remember it being quite an enjoyable film.

I had forgotten about its existence until Kathleen Turner was on the television (as she’s now a singer) and I was absolutely transfixed by the way she spoke. Not only was the sound of her voice hypnotising and famously distinctive, but also the way she told stories.

It wasn’t long before they mentioned ‘Peggy Sue Got Married’. I Googled her to find out which character she played, and couldn’t believe she was the Peggy Sue!

I immediately bought the film and we watched it on the weekend and how we laughed… 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
