I know some amazing people and sometimes strange and amazing things happen in my life
A few months ago I was helping a a man who makes movies do a couple of scenes for him. In my own very limited capacity as acting isn’t a strength in me
I must of mentioned that I quite like the idea of being “murdered in a movie ” image being able to really scream as your pretend murder took place, ok I may have a slightly unconventional opinion of fun on occasions
The movie making man contacted me and has informed me that he has written a play where I am going to play the character of “Queen Aphrodite ” and just happened to be killed in the play!
Who would have thought it, I am going to not just be a Queen but also get murdered!
All cinema lovers listen up!
The oldest running cinema is here in Birmingham. It’s called the “Electric Cinema ” and it’s worth a visit
Today I went there with a couple of my kids for mothers day to see, “Ladybird ” which by the way is a great movie .
The cinema is hidden down a back streets in inner Birmingham, it’s small, rather expensive but the real deal. Just like a cinema used to be but with sofas and a distinctly “traditional feel ”
If you want to experience how cinema used to be , it’s worth a visit
It’s an investment, takes hours of my time each week. You could go as far as saying its one of my major sources of relaxation and down time
Therefore I like to be certain before I commit.
I have over many years committed to this very thing and got lost in its ups and downs i have been on a rollercoster of emotions with its characters . It’s an important part of my past, even my childhood with the first series
Was I prepared to risk this new version of Star Trek, I watched the first episode with trepidation. It didn’t get off to a good start. Horror fell upon my face when I saw they had changed the theme tune, even more horror when I saw they had also changed the graffics.
But everyone you can relax, a couple of episodes in and I think it’s great. New, fresh but with the same feel as the old Star Trek, well done Netflix
I watched “Jumjgu welcome to the jungle ” yesterday and loved every minute of it.
I enjoyed the original movie many years ago and watched it many times, so as soon as I knew a sequel was coming out i was naturally looking forward to seeing it.
That gave the film a high bar to live up to. It didn’t fail, I went with my daughter, she chuckled all the way through it.
Marks out of 10 , a very enjoyable 9
What is it about us humans that like to be totally scared?
I am no different, I love horrors, haunted houses, paranormal events, horror stories etc
When I was a little girl my favourite programme ever was “Rent a ghost “…ok, I know that program wasn’t scary, but I didn’t sleep for days after watching a doctor who episode about huge slimey slug like creatures invading London.
Time hasn’t changed me at all. My current scary fix is the new, “American Horror Raoake ” Wow, is this little series scary!
Birmingham is a wonderful city for arts and culture. …and that’s how I ended up taking part in a world record attempt. ..For what? One may ask. …
….Well scroll down
A few years ago there was a brilliant event in Birmingham called arts fest. The whole city centre would become alive with arty culture stuff.
I went every year with my children without fail. So it happened a few years ago on this very day was a bangra world record attempt. The most people doing a sequence of bangra moves in one place.
Yes, it had to be done. .and so we did
I went to see a scary movie yesterday with my daughter, “Annibelle: Creation ” and it was jolly scary
Yes, it was a horror but only a 15 rating, it was a haunted house story with a possesed doll.
The film manages to grab you from the off, take you into a world of dark rooms and creaking doors with many many many good “jumps “and “aaaaagh” moments.
We left feeling rather like we needed a little trauma counselling. Not bad for a movie about a doll.
