A LITTLE UPDATE

Hello everyone.

I’d just like to apologise for my lack of posts lately… I’ve been really busy and haven’t had time to update my blog (which is a bit upsetting). Anyway, hang in there with me and hopefully some new posts should be up real soon!

#192 – GREASE (1978)

Screen Shot 2015-03-22 at 16.34.30

 

Director: Randal Kleiser

I can’t remember the first time I saw Grease, but I do remember that after watching it, I fell in love with the film. I’m a bit disappointed that it isn’t higher than 192 in the list if I’m honest. I’ve always said that if I could go back in time and visit an era that it would be 1950s America, maybe Grease is part of the reason why?

#155 – AIRPLANE! (1980)

Screen Shot 2015-03-15 at 15.10.32

 

Directors: Jim Abrahams, David Zucker, Jerry Zucker

I’d not really expected much from Airplane! In fact, the only reason I decided to watch this one when I did was because I had a spare hour and a half and at 87 minutes long it was short enough to fit that gap. A film about passengers and crew on an aeroplane falling ill, with the only person to save them being an ex-pilot scared of flying sounded, well, a bit naff really.

#156 – AMERICAN PSYCHO (2000)

Screen Shot 2015-03-10 at 10.44.04

 

Director: Mary Harron

I’ve always had this strange obsession with crime and serial killers. I know that probably makes me sound super weird but it’s always fascinated me – the things people do and why they do them. Actually, I’m starting to sound a little bit like Patrick Bateman, with my serial killer interests. Don’t worry though, I’m not totally insane (I can’t even chop up an onion without it making me cry, hehe.)

FIFTY SHADES OF GREY (2015)

Okay, so Fifty Shades of Grey isn’t on Empire’s list but I thought that I should share my opinion of the film anyway. I’ve been meaning to post this for a while.

As I’m writing this, Ellie Goulding’s Love Me Like You Do – which features in the film – is playing. I actually really like this song. The soundtrack is pretty decent.

#275 – THE LOST BOYS (1987)

Screen Shot 2015-02-28 at 21.05.28

 

Director: Joel Schumacher

I’ve seen¬†The Lost Boys¬†a couple of times now and as much as I wanted to really like it, I just couldn’t. It was obvious that it was never going to become my favourite movie of all time but I still feel like I’ve missed the reason it is a favourite for so many. It has cult status, I get that. It mixes comedy with horror, yeah I get that too. I love horrors and I love comedies, why can’t I love this?

#85 – THE WOLF OF WALL STREET (2013)

BoF0R2-CIAAF7V9

Director: Martin Scorsese

Ahh,¬†The Wolf of Wall Street.¬†The first 18 rated film I saw in the cinema as an 18 year old. Yes, I got asked for ID (the perks of looking 12 I guess?) It was a horrible, cold, rainy Friday and I was extremely excited to watch the film. I’ve been a fan of Leonardo DiCaprio for a while and I just knew he was going to ace this role. Anyway, back to that Friday evening – my friend and I paid ¬£2.50 for our tickets and the theatre had around 100 seats. It turned out that the film would become one of my favourites of all time.

#272 – THE LITTLE MERMAID (1989)

Directors: Ron Clements, John Musker

Having taken me nearly 19 years to watch¬†The Little Mermaid¬†in its entirety, I am more than a little ashamed of myself. I mean, come on, there is no doubting that the film is a classic. To be honest, as a kid I was never really a Disney fan. It’s only now that I’m older that I can really appreciate it – which does seem a bit strange.¬†
