Today is the tenth of the month and so today we join the International bloghopping world of Shimelle Laine to talk about ten things of interest/education/prettiness/just likeable.
Today I would like to share ten films which I would highly recommend to you or would like to see...............
1. War Horse
I went to see War Horse in our tiny little cinema in Wells with my dad. The last time we saw a film together was there and it was Saving Private Ryan, so not recently. It was lovely to sit with someone and you get tea and biccies as well! It doesn't matter if you've read the book or not, this is a beautiful film. The acting is amazing, even the horses deserve an Oscar. The musical score is perfect and our countryside looks beautiful. Take a box of tissues or kitchen roll as I did.
3. The Woman in Black
This is the next film my dad is taking me to see. Having read the book several times and seen the theatre production, not to mention a TV version, I am looking forward to seeing the film at last. This is a scarey story with lots of psychological and haunting ghosty stuff. I am sure Daniel Radcliffe will be great in the title role. I have to watch myself in the cinema though as I screamed in the theatre.
4. One Day
Now this is one of my favourite books of all time and I was worried about how the film would be made. The relationship between the two leads is so important and so I watched this with my heart praying for success. I think Jim Sturgess is amazing as Dex but would have preferred a British actress for Emma. It is a good film, another hankie job I'm afraid, and one I would recommend.
5. Despicable Me
6. Knocked Up
Ah Enchanted, my fave piece of musical fluff and romance. The Happy working song can get you through the housework any day and what this princess can do with curtains is awesome. A great family movie for the girls with romance and scarey evil Queen thrown in for good measure.
This film isn't out yet but looks amazing. Part sci-fi, part psychological thriller, it charts the events which follow three young men being given super powers after falling into a hole.
9. Dog Soldiers
A few years old now, but one of my fave horror movies. What happens when an army section finds the aftermath of an attack on their military comrades. Well werewolves of course!!! This film has gore, humour and thrills and although not especially terrifying the CGI is good and the werewolves pretty unrelentless.
10. The Italian Job
I hope you will find something to your taste in this list and perhaps some new favourites for yourselves. What would you recommend I see next I wonder?
