Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

This gallery contains 3 photos.

After 20 minutes of watching this Harry Potter spin-off, I realised it was not going to get any better.

A story of a man (Eddie Redmayne) who was expelled from Hogwarts goes to America to save and conserve magical beasts that have been wrongly accused of being dangerous within the magical community.

Unfortunately, this gets out of hand and his magical beasts escape into New York city and interact with Muggles – or as the Americans call them, No-maj. (Non-magical people.)

I had hyped myself up to see it because I had recently had a Harry Potter movie binge-watch, and had read one of the Potter books. So I thought, to be a real Harry Potter fan, I really ought to see Fantastic Beasts before it ‘disapparated’ from the cinemas.

Unfortunately, it was everything I feared… Continue reading

Remembering David Bowie and Alan Rickman

Two legends gone at the age of 69. I am so shocked and gutted. They are English artists who both died of cancer within four days of each other… Continue reading

What Are You Like, Rosamund Pike?

This gallery contains 6 photos.

I wanted to make a quick post regarding the fantastic English actress, Rosamund Pike.

I had one idea in my head about who she is, naively based on her characters in Made in Dagenham and The World’s End, but since seeing Gone Girl my image of her has been completely crushed.

It’s like listening to an amazing song and having an idea of who the singer looks like, and what they are like in person. But then you find their photo, then you watch an interview… And then your whole perception of who you think they are is SCREWED… Continue reading

Movies About Time Travel

This gallery contains 8 photos.

I do love time travel. It can be matched up to any theme; romance, action, a light-hearted chick-flick, drama, thriller, comedy… It’s so versatile, yet remains so interesting. It is a theme that explores freedom, risk and responsibility.

But be careful! There are many of us who will be happy to point out the inconsistent, nitty-gritty details when making a story based around time travel.

These are just a few movies that are worth a look if you’re into time travel: Continue reading

Twilight Saga VS Roswell TV series

This gallery contains 11 photos.

Wow! So guess what I’ve been watching and totally thought it was extremely similar to a certain film series…

That’s right! After watching the Twilight Saga films which were written by Stephanie Meyer during 2005-2008 (which has created multi-millions in recent years) I realised that it is rather similar to the Roswell series which debuted in 1999 with the final episode airing in 2002.

Let me explain further. I am no “twi-hard”, nor am I a “twilight hater”. I do not enjoy the storyline, the actors or characters within the Twilight films. However… Continue reading

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 [SPOILER]

This gallery contains 6 photos.

Not a moment to rest! This really is a second part, as in, it can’t really stand alone. If you consider it as a film separate to the first, you may feel exhausted by the constant running and relentless fighting. However, it really is more that that. It is the final of a ten year long series and the conclusion to the first Deathly Hallows… Continue reading

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1

This gallery contains 6 photos.

What a fantastic film! But of course I would say that; it’s based around time travel. So if you enjoyed the Prisoner of Azkaban, you’ll enjoy this.
Every Potter film before this has been increasingly dark – this is no exception – it is evil and horrific as we continue out ten year journey with Harry potter in order to defeat Lord Voldemort and we are almost at the final fight… Continue reading
