The Forest: Film Review

forest2

I do not like horror movies and I have done pretty well in avoiding them (except the really buzzworthy ones) since my horror-loving heyday as a teenager. But I thought The Forest would be the worth checking out because of Natalie Dormer and because I find the mythology behind the Aokigahara Forest fascinating. But sadly, it’s not very good.

Natalie Dormer introducing #TheForest

A post shared by Hannah Wales (@hannahwalesy) on

A few days ago I was at the Soho Hotel for a preview screening for The Forest when Natalie Dormer surprisingly showed up! I had no idea she was going to come as I’ve never seen a celeb film introduction at hotel screenings before but she was lovely and told us lots of exciting stuff about the upcoming horror.

002

The Zoolander 2 premiere tonight was probably the most fun premiere in a long time. The cast turn out was fantastic, they were all on top comedy form and they all seemed genuine friends and happy to be there. See inside for my pictures and round-up featuring Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson, Penelope Cruz, Will Ferrell, Christine Taylor, Kristen Wiig and Justin Theroux, plus surprise guests Natalie Dormer, Luke Wilson, Adam Driver and Oscar Isaac.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 Film Review

mock1

The franchise is finally over. You would think my expectations would be high because I loved the books and the first two films, but I had such a ‘meh’ response about this because I felt like I had been waiting for it for TOO long. I was over it, and I think that wasn’t helped by a disappointing and unnecessary Part 1. BUT the good news is, this attitude paid off because it was surprisingly bloody brilliant and a worthy ending to the franchise.

BAFTA 2015: Best & Worst Dressed

yes2

So tonight the celebs came to London for the biggest night in Britain’s film awards calendar – the BAFTAs. I wasn’t blown away by anybody’s outfit picks to be honest, so my standards have been slightly lowered for the best dressed. Nobody was dressed awfully either – but someone’s got to end up at the bad end of that scale. Reese Witherspoon has been consistent great for me this awards season, whereas Keira Knightley has continually failed to impress. She just can’t seem to pull off pregnancy style in my eyes.

The Hunger Games: Mockingay – Part I Film Review

I desperately wanted to like this and I have been hyping it up for months so my expectations were pretty high. However, I had my reservations when they announced Mockingjay would be split into two films because I didn’t there was enough action to sustain two and I was right. In the first half of the book, it was build-up to the rebellion and setting the scene and that is essentially what happens here – making it the dullest instalment of the franchise so far.

Emmys 2014: Best & Worst Dressed

Hayden Panettiere - my fave look of the night

Hayden Panettiere – my fave look of the night

So the Emmys are the biggest awards for TV stars so they all try to bring them A-game. Some of these gowns are Oscar-worthy and I was so impressed by the choices on display. To be fair, they weren’t many badly dressed people. There were a couple of stand-out awful dresses and in the middle ground were those that looked great but did not grab my attention. I’m going to start with best dressed, which was hands-down lead by Hayden Panettiere (above) who looked stunning with her baby bump. The rest continue below…
