Downsizing: Film Review

Alexander Payne‘s Downsizing was one of the films I was so excited to see at LFF, which is why it was one of the most disappointing. It had such an intriguing and original concept, but it just didn’t know what to do with it.

Gone Girl: Film Review

gone3

As far as book to film adaptations go, this is pretty much perfect. I cannot fault it at all. It is so loyal to the book and with a brilliant cast.

Ben Affleck is Nick Dunne who discovers his wife Amy (Rosamund Pike) has gone missing on their fifth anniversary. He ends up being the murder suspect due to his cold behaviour and clues which seem to hint at his misdeeds. The film is told from two viewpoints – one of Nick in the present with the murder investigation and the second from Amy from their past leading up to present in the form of diary entries. But whose version is the truth? Did Nick do it, or is Amy still alive?

My thoughts on: How I Met Your Mother’s final episode

himym3

SPOILER ALERT 

So, How I Met Your Mother finished last night and the ending really split public opinion. The mother dies and six years later, Ted gets back together with Robin. I understand their frustration. That plotline had been doing the rounds for a while but I was still surprised that they went with that – it is a comedy show so why did they kill her off?! Considering it had been spoiled weeks in advance, I had hoped they would take a different direction as the rumours took the punch out of it. [Read more…]

Pics: Inside the Kids Choice Awards 2013

You can always expect some fun at the Kids Choice Awards because it is for kids and voted by kids. The guests know that they may end being gunged and their awards are little orange submarines. It isn’t a serious awards show which means that the celebrities can let loose and have fun.

Like Kristen Stewart, for example, who sacrificed her outfit to hung a slimy Sandra Bullock. Bullock and Neil Patrick Harris got gooed while presenting her with the Best Actress submarine and Stewart happily joined in the fun.

Katy Perry also seemed to be having fun. Seriously, this girl seems to be friends with every celebrity. She just seems to know everyone. Here were can see here getting friendly with Kristen Stewart, Selena Gomez and Fergie.

What's she screaming about?!

This is the cutest picture of the night. I knew Kristen and Katy have hung out before but I didn’t know they were this close. Also, I didn’t know Selena knew either of them. Such a great pic!

The Kids Choice Awards will be televised on Nickelodeon at 6pm.

Big Pics: Celebrity Christmas pictures

Loads of celebrities took to social media to give us a look at their Christmas celebration. Generally, the pictures were of the celebrity with their child/children or a family member, so it will be a bit repetitive. I’m not going to describe the picture unless it needs an explanation. Enjoy the holiday pics!

Big Pics: Happy Halloween Part I

Yep, it’s the time of year that I love because you see celebs dressed up and having fun and there are so many great pictures to look at. I’ve decided to do a round-up of the best, worst, weirdest and just plain awful Halloween costumes. I won’t go into detail about each one because there are a lot!

Neil Patrick Harris 

To start- my favourite family Halloween picture this year. I LOVE this photo. Neil and his partner David Burtka went all Wizard of Oz with their children Harper and Gideon.

Robert Pattinson & Kristen Stewart 

Lame effort guys but thanks for proving to us that you are back together! That redeems their poor Halloween input.

Sharon Osbourne

Going all out with a big theatrical costume is Sharon who is the Queen of Hearts.

Sandra Bullock 

Sandra dressed up as Jessie from Toy Story to join her adopted son Louis at a party where he was Buzz Lightyear.

Katy Perry 

Loving the hair! I don’t get this reference but she is dressed as Daria which is from an MTV cartoon series of the same name. Her pal Shannon Woodward is playing Daria’s best bud.

Harrison Ford & Calista Flockhart 

Dressing up as pensioners! Brilliant! I almost forgot they were still together….

Jessica Simpson

Showing off her post-pregnancy boobs to their full potential, Jessica dresses up as a maid/wench.

Ashley Tisdale 

Not very original but damn, she looks good!

Elton holidays with Neil Patrick Harris

Elton John and partner David Furnish were joined on their yacht in St Tropez with Neil Patrick Harris and his partner David Burkta.

It wasn’t an adults only trip though- the foursome brought along their kids! Elton and David brought along their two-year-old Zachary, who enjoyed the company of Neil’s twins Harper, a girl, and Gideon, a boy, who are coming up two this month.

Elton has been with filmmaker Furnish since 1993 and they got a civil partnership in 2005. How I Met Your Mother star Neil is engaged to actor and presenter Burtka and they have together since 2004.

It was the cutest outing and the pictures of the whole gang put the biggest smile on my face. Beware some of these pics show David in VERY tight pants!!
