It's the monthly healthy living update for June, kept this one on the shorter side. Oh, and you can still sponsor me for the Virtual Welsh 3 Peaks Challenge here. Any thoughts? You know what to do. BETEO.
Note: This is number 30 of the 365 Film Challenge. Oh, and there are spoilers ahead. Urgh. This movie was woeful, the idea of a young lad discovering that his dad is an international thief and criminal mastermind, and then learns that all of the stories he was told about fairies are true and there's … Continue reading Film Review: Artemis Fowl
This is one of the Disney movies I missed at the cinema when it came out and I've never caught up with it because it's one of those Disney flicks that has kinda been forgotten about. It's easy to see why. The plot of this movie is a little dull and the characters aren't particularly … Continue reading Disney Classics #39: Dinosaur
Later this week I'm doing my latest challenge to raise money for charity. I was meant to be doing a 10k next month for Ty Hafan, but the event has been cancelled, and in all honesty I'm nowhere near fit enough to run 10k. So, when Ty Hafan announced they were doing a virtual challenge … Continue reading Virtual Welsh Three Peaks
A second batch of LGBTQ+ related movies to celebrate Pride month. Film #23: Dream Boat You ever had that moment on a night out where you step out for a breather, and the music fades and despite the revelry around you there's a sudden moment of intense introspection about your life? This is the movie … Continue reading 365 Film Challenge Part 7: What have you done today to make you feel Proud?
Note: Film 26 of the 365 film challenge. This is a really fascinating and personal documentary, in which filmmaker Rachel Mason tells the story of her parents, Karen and Barry, who ran the adult bookstore that gives the film it's title. Through the AIDS epidemic, the Reagan's governments conservative crackdown and developments within their family, … Continue reading Film Review: Circus of Books
This post has less of a theme than the last couple of updates on the challenge, I guess that here the link is that each film features characters coming to bloody deaths. Film #15: Law Abiding Citizen WoM has been trying to get me to watch this for a while, but I've been resistant. I'm … Continue reading 365 Film Challenge Part 6: Odds and Grizzly Ends
I don't know why I've always wanted to skinny dip, I mean, like most people I did it as a kid but it doesn't really count does it? I think the idea started when I was at uni and a friend of mine confessed that they'd gone skinny dipping and it seemed daring and risque … Continue reading Bucket List #20: Skinny Dip (video update)
This was the first animated movie to get nominated for the Best Picture at the Oscars, and while I'm a big fan of that year's winner (The Silence of the Lambs), this would have been a deserved winner, because it is, for me, easily one of the best movies Disney have ever made. It's just … Continue reading Disney Classics #30: Beauty and the Beast
As it's Pride Month, I decided that this month I'd like to try and watch some films that tell LGBTQ+ stories, so here are a few of the ones I watched. Film #18: But I'm a Cheerleader I've heard of this movie before, but never actually had the chance to watch it, so decided to … Continue reading 365 Film Challenge Part 5: I see Pride
