Mother! | Film Review

Hey Guys x
So... Mother!. I have many thoughts about this, so I'm gonna get straight in with telling you what it's about - I'll try not to spoil it, but if something slips through the cracks, I'm really sorry, it's a hard film to explain.
The film is about a couple, played by Jennifer Lawrence and Javier Bardem. They live a seemingly idyllic life, until they have a visitor who neither of them know. Lawrence's character wants him to leave, while Bardem's is more open and loving, he lets him stay. This man, played by Ed Harris, then brings his wife, played by Michelle Pfeiffer, to the house. As more people enter the house, Lawrence's character becomes more and more distraught, especially with her husband, who allows these people to come in and essentially destroy her home. But why is he letting them in? And will she be able to forgive him?
So, I'm just gonna be completely honest, I understand and appreciate the theme of the film (and the many interpr…

IT (2017) | Film Review

Image
Hey Guys x
So I saw IT at the weekend, and immediately I couldn't wait to review it! However, it might be worth mentioning that I saw the original before I saw the remake, which might alter my opinion somewhat.
So, the film begins with two boys, Bill, and his younger brother Georgie. After making a paper sailboat together, Georgie takes the boat out in the rain, where it falls down a drain. When he goes to retrieve the boat, he finds a clown that goes by the name of 'Pennywise'. When Georgie reaches into the drain for the boat, he is taken down the drain with the demented clown. 8 months later, through a range of circumstances involving some school bullies, Bill and a group of his friends who have also been tormented by the clown, decide to take him down. Whether now, or after the 27 years that it takes for It to return, they will defeat him.
I really really enjoyed this film, I liked it a lot. As a huge fan of horror, I wanted it to be truly terrifying, which it wasn'…

As Above, So Below | Film Review

Image
Hey Guys x
So I watched this film the other day, and I've decided that I'm going to review the films that I watch whether they're old or new. Because to be honest, when I want to watch a film, I'd rather see a newer review than an old one anyway.
This film is about a girl who is looking for the 'Philosopher's Stone', that is said to create (or provide) immortality. Through her research, she discovers that she can find it in the catacombs of Paris (basically an underground cemetery type thing). So she enlists the help of her ex boyfriend, her cameraman friend, and three Parisians that she meets who are already proficient when it comes to exploring these unknown tunnels. However, when they go through the first tunnel, it collapses behind them, meaning that they have no choice but to find another way out. However, when they go through one specific tunnel, they find out that there's a reason why everyone who's gone through it has never been seen again.

August Favourites | 2017

Hey Guys x

Sorry that this one is up so late this month! I said this before, but I ended up taking a break from blogging for the last week of August, and when I was planning what posts to write, I completely forgot this one!

Nevertheless, a late favourites post is better than none at all!

So, let's get on with it!

Favourite Movie (1): Annabelle: Creation


So, I put up a review of this last week, so I'll link that here! There's no point repeating what I said in that post, so I won't. But it's awesome!

Favourite Movie (2): All Eyez On Me

Everything, Everything | Film Review

Image
Hey Guys x
I read this book ages ago, and I was anxiously awaiting the release of the film. Mostly, I wanted to see how true they kept certain events. In addition to that, the way that certain things in the book were described made them so vivid, that I thought it would be interesting to see the interpretation of those things in the book.
So, this film is about a girl called Maddie. Maddie has a condition that means that, if she leaves her house, she could easily die. Because of this, she hasn't left the house for 18 years, and doesn't know what it feels like to be free. To feel fresh air, or to go to the beach. But she didn't complain or try to rebel against this, because her mother (a doctor) knew what was best for her. Until she meets her new next door neighbour, Olly. As the two talk, connect and start to fall for each other (through emails, texts and hand-to-glass communication) Maddie realises that Olly might be worth rebelling for, worth going outside for. Worth ri…

To The Fools Who Dream

Hey Guys x
This post is going to be a bit of a ramble, so try to stay with me!
I am one of those 'fools who dream'. I dream of so many things. I dream of being an actress (never said that on the blog before - it's not something I'm pursuing!), a writer, a director, a producer. I dream of fun and excitement, of love and romance and marriage and kids. I dream of being the happiest that a person can be.
Watching La La Land made me think about that concept, about being a 'fool' who dreams, and having to clean up the mess that you make when your dreams inevitably come crashing down around you.
And it's weird to think about dreams like this, as something actually achievable and tangible. I know that, for me, my dreams are just that - dreams. Whether daydreams, actual asleep dreams or wistful wishes, none of them seem like they'll ever come true.
I love being a dreamer. In fact, I spend a large portion of each and every day in my head, dreaming, and I love it…

Annabelle: Creation | Film Review

Hey Guys x
I am a huge fan of horror movies, as I've said on the blog many times!
One of my absolute favourite horror franchises is, as you can probably guess, the Conjuring franchise!
I loved the two Conjuring films, and also really liked the first Annabelle film, so obviously this film was something that I was really excited for. Also, I'm a massive fan of James Wan, who is a producer on this film as well as my other favourite horror film franchises (Insidious, Saw etc.) so I knew that it would be a great film.
As it's called Annabelle: Creation, it's pretty obvious that the film is about the creation of the Annabelle doll, as well as the spirit within that doll. The film begins with a family living in the 1940s. One day, the couple's young daughter Annabelle (get it?) dies in a vehicular accident. However, coincidentally,weird things begin happening in their home. I wonder what the correlation is?  Twelve years later, the couple have turned their home into an o…

Feeling Good!

Hey Guys x

So... I'm back!

I've been a bit busy lately, and took an unintentional break. But even before that, this whole year I've not really been on top of the blogging thing. And I'm not apologising for it, because I don't regret occasionally having other things to focus on. But I'm now trying to get back on it, and I thought that the beginning of September would be a good place to start.

'Feeling Good' is the title of this post, mainly because I actually am feeling good. And I want to capture this feeling and read over this post when I'm not feeling my best, which is like 90% of my life!

But honestly, I don't remember the last time I've felt so good.

I've been focusing on writing, reading, making and self-care, and it's so good!

In terms of writing, that's all about my fanfics at the moment. Not being at uni has given me the time to discover what it is about writing that I love. When you're forced to do something, you ca…
