Instant Family: Film Review

I’m not always Mark Wahlberg‘s biggest fan and he has starred in his fair share of duff films – namely the Daddy’s Home movies – but Instant Family won me over completely.

Peter Rabbit: Film Review

As much as I love Domhnall Gleeson, I must admit that I didn’t like the look of Peter Rabbit much. The trailer really didn’t sell it to me, so I was very surprised to find that it is a fun family movie that I enjoyed immensely.

Met Gala 2017: Best & Worst Dressed

In case you have been hiding under a rock, it was fashion’s BIG event last night – the Met Gala. Unlike the Oscars etc, where the red carpet looks are just a bonus, the Met Gala is ALL about the red carpet fashion. Here are were my favourites:

X-Men: Apocalypse – Film Review

x1

The initial reaction to X-Men: Apocalypse was very mixed so I went in with low expectations and this probably helped because I actually liked it. Sure, it’s not as good as Days of Future Past and it’s pretty bleak, but it is still a decent watch with some great performances so I definitely recommend checking it out if you’re into this kind of thing.

Bad Neighbours 2: Film Review

bad1

I loved the 2014 comedy Bad Neighbours and since it did so well at the box office it was no surprise a sequel was ordered. I was wary of it though because I didn’t think it could beat the original, be as remotely funny or be anything more than a repeat of previous events. But I didn’t need to worry – Bad Neighbours 2 is brilliant and such a laugh.

Tony Awards 2015: Best & Worst Dressed

yes1

I don’t usually cover the Tony Awards when I do my red carpet outfit ratings but so many dresses caught my eye this year that I simply couldn’t resist. There weren’t many bad ones actually – I’m mainly here to big up the beautiful dresses – including one of my favourites, Jennifer Lopez. I’m used to her flaunting her body and wearing skimpy/barely-there clothes that this was a breath of fresh air. And what a gorgeous dress too! She looks stunning. There was some other amazing looks too, check out my slideshows to find out who made the cut.

Spy: Film Review

spy2

I was not excited about Spy at all because the trailer sucked and I thought ‘this better not be the level of humour’ as the comedy highlights shown weren’t funny to me. So my expectations for this were super low and I was pleasantly surprised. I loved it and it is truly hilarious. I would recommend you all completely ignore the trailer!

Annie: Film Review

1111746 Ð ANNIE

I have to admit, I am not familiar with the Broadway musical or the later film adaptations and my knowledge was limited to a basic understanding of the plot (because it changes in different versions) and classic tracks Tomorrow and It’s the Hard Knock Life. So while I can’t compare it to its predecessors, I can still say that it didn’t leave me with the happy, warm feeling musicals usually do.

Quvenzhane Wallis stars as Annie Bennett in this modern-day reboot as a foster child (not orphan!) living under the guardianship of Miss Hannigan (Cameron Diaz). One day, mobile phone businessman and wannabe mayor Will Stacks (Jamie Foxx) saves her from a potential car accident and when he sees it boosts his campaign ratings, he invites her to live with him temporarily. She is mainly looked after by his assistant Grace (Rose Byrne). His campaign advisor (Bobby Cannavale) begins to hatch a plan with Hannigan to reunite Annie with her ‘parents’, whether they are the real ones or not.
