It's half term here and it's been all about lazy days (with a little work in between for me), and family movie nights with dance-offs in our living room thanks to the DVD and Blu-Ray release of hit film Sing!
Half-term is just around the corner and whilst I'll be taking some time off during the week, there'll be lots of juggling going on here as I entertain little kids and make big deadlines. The
Winner of Best Independent Film in London and Best Actress in LA, 'Never Let Go' is a gut-wrenching thriller which follows a single mother on holiday as she desperately searches for her missing child following an apparent abduction.
Life can be a little bit surreal at times and in some respects it can feel, well, a little bit full circle. I know I'm being ambiguous but bare with me... On Thursday night I attended the film première of Eddie the Eagle, a movie made by Lionsgate UK, a company I used to work for.
Welcome to this week's star-studded Brilliant Blog Posts! Join me down the blue carpet (yup blue!) as I share my time at the UK Premier of Eddie The Eagle, a feel good biographical 'dramedy' film starring Hugh Jackman and directed by Dexter Fletcher.
On Sunday, I attended the world premiere of Paddington which was an absolute joy from start to finish. I've blogged all about it HERE but wanted to share a few pictures for #Tastytuesdays too. Knowing my wonderful Auntie Loulla, award winning restaurateur and TV Chef had a cracking marmalade recipe, I had to share it with you all. It really is an orange marmalade fit for Paddington!
Huge fans of the first film, Dolphin Tale (the touching story of the bond between a boy and a dolphin Winter, whose tail was lost in a crab trap), we simply can't wait to watch Dolphin Tale 2 this half term.
I mentioned on Facebook recently how mesmerized my son, Oliver, aged 4 1/2 was by the movie of the moment, the modern ET, Earth to Echo. I've never seen a film, any film effect him as much as this one.
So which were my best and worst films of 2011.... Sometimes I pretend I'm Claudia Winkleman and BBC Radio Leeds entertain me by inviting me in to talk films, filmmaking and erm the movies on the wireless. I recently gave my review of films in 2011 so I thought I'd enlighten those who missed it, on this here blog.
