A Film By Your Favourite Director I had to think for a moment who my favourite director was – I don’t often pay attention to such things – but I think it is probably say that Tim Burton is probably one of my top ones. Don’t get me wrong I HATE his version of Charlie…… Continue reading 30 Day Film Challenge: Day 11
A Film That Reminds You Of Somewhere Jurassic Park III reminds me of Aberystwyth in Wales as I watched it there whilst on holiday with a friend from Guides. It is both the only time I have experienced a cinema where they stopped for an interval mid-film and the only time I have properly screamed…… Continue reading 30 Day Film Challenge: Day 6
A Film That Reminds You Of Someone Actually a contender for least favourite film, Pathfinder is 99 minutes of weird, unintelligible, blue filtered Viking oddness. I first watched it with my boyfriend of the time after his film-buff brother recommended it and boy did we give him an ear bashing after we’d endured it.

In the end I have decided to go with the only film I have ever walked out of the cinema within the first…… Continue reading 30 Day Film Challenge: Day 2
Your Favourite Film I can hear just about everyone I know shouting an answer to this, but I bet they are all wrong. If I could only pick one, the film I’d choose as my favourite of all would probably be Music and Lyrics as horrendously cheesy and girly as that is. There’s just something…… Continue reading 30 Day Film Challenge: Day 1
Back in university we were given a list of books to buy and read for our Writing For Young People module. It was a real mixed bag – from Where The Wild Things Are upwards in age range and variety. One of these books was How I Live Now by Meg Rosoff. It was infuriating.…… Continue reading Dare I See ‘How I Live Now’?
