[Musical Monday] Come With Me

Morning, everyone. I hope you've all had lovely weekends. This blog has taken a back seat recently while I've adjusted to my new job and living back home. I'm planning on writing some blog posts tonight - including my long overdue James Bond reviews - so keep tuned for some new posts soon. Instead of driving... Continue Reading →

[Musical Monday] Kill Bill: Vol 1

For this week's edition of Musical Monday I'm taking a look at my favourite Tarantino film, Kill Bill: Vol 1, and its sequel, Kill Bill: Vol 2. Uma Thurman takes on the role of The Bride, a member of the Deadly Viper Assassination Squad. On finding out that she is pregnant she decides to leave the Squad, much... Continue Reading →

[Musical Monday] Groovy, baby, yeahhh!

Happy Monday, folks. Hope you all had fantastic weekends. For this week's edition of Musical Monday I took inspiration from a TV show shown on the BBC on Saturday, Let's Dance for Sports Relief. In the show a group of celebrities take to the dance floor in a bid to be crowned Let's Dance For... Continue Reading →

[Musical Monday] AFI’s Greatest Movie Musicals

While searching for inspiration for this week's Musical Monday I stumbled across the American Film Institute's Greatest Movie Musicals list, which was released in 2006. While the musical genre isn't a particular of mine - I'm a fantasy/action/adventure kinda girl - I've seen and enjoyed quite a few musicals, including Moulin Rouge!, The Wizard of...

[Musical Monday] Back to the Future

Last week, for the very first time - yes, you did read that right - I watched Back to the Future. Starring Michael J. Fox as Marty McFly, Back to the Future is the first of three films that follow Marty and his friend, eccentric inventor Doc Brown, as they travel backwards, and forwards, in... Continue Reading →

[Musical Monday] Blade Runner

Happy Monday, everyone. Today is the 68th birthday of Dutch actor Rutger Hauer. For this week's edition of Musical Monday I thought I'd take a look at arguably his most famous film, Blade Runner. Released in 1982 and directed by Ridley Scott, Blade Runner is set in the not too distant future where man has the... Continue Reading →

[Musical Monday] Fanfare, please

In honour of last night's Golden Globes Awards ceremony, I thought I'd put the spotlight on some of the film studios that bring us the films we love. Whenever I hear Fox's fanfare I get shivers down my spine: I'm where I want to be, in the cinema, and I'm about to be transported to... Continue Reading →

[Musical Monday] The Wizard of Oz

Happy Monday, everyone! I hope you all had a fantastic weekend. I can't believe it's the 9th of January already... So, to today's Musical Monday post, the charming The Wizard of Oz. Released in 1939, the film shot 17-year-old Judy Garland to stardom for her portrayal of the film's heroine, Dorothy Gale. After being swept... Continue Reading →

[Musical Monday] The Breakfast Club

This week's Musical Monday post is from a classic 1980s film, The Breakfast Club. When I'm driving long distances I like to listen to either 1990s dance music or 1980s pop.  I like something I can sing along to. This week on the drive to work I have been enjoying the vocal delights of British rocker... Continue Reading →

[Musical Monday] Hedwig’s Theme

It's time to feel festive! I'm not sure why but the Harry Potter series always reminds me of Christmas. The films don't specifically feature Christmas, though, so I'm not sure why it reminds me of the festive season. It is mentioned, of course, as the films do follow a year (or thereabouts) in Harry's life.... Continue Reading →
