  • Doctor Who: Resolution – So predictable, but I’m always *happy* to see a Dalek
  • The Cat Returns – Wow, an actual movie about a chick with a cat kink. 2019 is truly smashing so far.
  • The Three Musketeers – Revolutionary. Beautiful. Perfection. Where’s my sequel??? πŸ‘ŒπŸ‘ŒπŸ‘Œ
  • Pokemon: I Choose You – Wow, I think I like Pokemon now?
  • Shrek 2 – A literal masterpiece. When The Fairy Godmother sangΒ I Need a Hero I think I reached a spiritual plane.
  • The Holiday – A classic. Beautiful. I love it. πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

  • 🎬Aquaman –Β  I really enjoyed this one and I’m excited to watch it again once it’s out on DVD. Loved all the Ocean scenes and Arthur’s character development in the movie.
  • The Switch –Β  I mean, this is just your run of the mill Jason Bateman Rom-Com, but what I love about this, and why I always come back to this movie, is the relationship between the main characters and the kid. More than a romance, this movie is about the parents understanding their kid and understanding how he thinks and what he needs, rather than what they want him to want, if that makes sense? Also, Jeff Goldblum’s in it, so that’s a plus!
  • Saving Mr. Banks –Β  I’m really not sure how I felt about this movie. The acting was solid, and it was heartbreaking, of course. But, I’m really torn between never wanting to watch Mary Poppins again and not believing a single thing I just watched. Call me a pessimist, but I have trouble believing that a movie so heavily featuring Walt Disney, made by Disney is going to be 100% accurate/honest.
  • Ocean’s 8 – Considering, for years I thought this series was about people in submarines this was a serious glow up.
  • Fantasia – Not really my cup of tea but the music was good to have on in the background while I was writing blog posts.
  • 🎬Mary Poppins Returns – Oh, boiiii. Visually amazing, the sound was pretty good but Mary Poppins has a stick up her a** and an ego to boot.

  • Mary Poppins: Behind The Magic – I love behind the scenes stuff like this, especially learning about the sets and the design departments, they killed it!
  • You [Season 1] – I rarely binge watch tv but I could not stop watching this. I loved how Penn Badgley played Joe and it made me really happy to see Elizabeth Lail in something new! I don’t recommend this show if you’re super paranoid or attached to social media, but otherwise, it’s amazing!
  • The Sorcerer’s Apprentice – This movie is a classic holy crap. Nicolas Cage was truly at his lowest and the soundtrack is laughable but oh well, it’s still so much fun to watch.
  • Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle – I love this movie, I really do. It’s so much fun to watch and I love how it’s shot like a video game. The only thing that really annoyed me was Kevin Hart and how his and The Rock’s characters never resolved their issues.
  • Frozen – I love this movie, yes, it’s overhyped but idc because I love it.
  • Pitch Perfect – I really enjoyed the soundtrack but this movie was a whole-a** letdown.

  • Jersey Boys: Brisbane Show – The acting was amazing, but honestly I didn’t know any of the music and I didn’t care for the show and never would have even thought about going except that my mum had a super cheap ticket to spare.
  • 🎬Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse – I loved this! It’s even better the second time around! You can check out my review here if you’re curious about my more in-depth thoughts!
  • Once Upon A Time [Season 1]Β – I have watched this so many times and I always feel differently about it on each watch. I wasn’t as big a fan this time, I honestly forgot that so much of season 1 was a murder mystery ft. snow white’s love problems.
  • How To Train Your Dragon – I love this movie, it never fails to make me completely happy.
  • 🎬How To Train Your Dragon 3 – I’m still processing this movie, that’s all I’ll say until I see it again.
  • The Grand Budapest Hotel – holy crap but also wtf

  • Winter’s Tale – This movie was a mistake. A true contender for the worst movie of all time.
  • John Wick 2 – This series is amazing and everyone needs to watch it at some point.
  • The Many Adventures of Winnie The Pooh – It’s always such a depressing kind of joy to be in Pooh’s world.
  • A Series of Unfortunate Events [Season 1] – Definitely didn’t enjoy this as much on my re-watch but, I do really like the Lemony Snicket bits with Kronk.
  • 🎬Aquaman – I really enjoyed this one on my re-watch, though I felt a bit awkward in an almost empty cinema.

  • The Lucky One – I was in the mood for a bad romance so I decided to re-watch this one. Re-watching it, I thought Zac Efron’s character was slightly creepy but maybe that’s just because I was watching it while I was half asleep.
  • National Treasure – It’s always a pleasure to watch National Treasure.
  • HP + The Philosopher’s Stone – This movie always fun to watch, except for the bit where we see the back of Quirrell’s head because EW.
  • Inception – My family didn’t like this at all but I loved it so do what you want with that info, I guess.
  • Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets – I will forever love Kenneth Branagh’s portrayal of Lockhart, absolutely hilarious.
  • Johnny English Strikes Again – This movie is also hilarious, please watch it.

  • Creed – This was entirely Rebecca’s fault and I love her for it. I never would have been even tempted t watch this movie if not for her and I LOVED IT! Absolutely amazing characterisation and some of the shots in this film were BEAUTIFULLY done. Also, the relationship between Rock & Adonis was the best thing that happened to me all month, I love them.
  • Letters to Juliet – I know this movie isn’t amazing but honestly, it’s so much fun to watch.
  • What To Expect When You’re Expecting – I clicked on this at random while scrolling down Netflix and wow I got a good cry out of this one.
  • Deadpool 2 – I forgot how funny and uncomfortable these movie were, yikes. Great soundtrack though.
  • Isn’t It Romantic – I was actually pretty excited for this buy oh boy, did it disappoint.

  • 🎬Dumbo – Visually fantastic but don’t go into this thinking it’ll be a shot-by-shot remake of the original because it is quite different but still keeps the heart of the animated movie!

    1. It was so so well done and watching it actually convinced me to finally put a passcode on my phone! I definitely think season 2 will be interesting and I have no idea what happens because I’ve only read book 1!

  1. I recently watched Mary Poppins Returns and really enjoyed it. Yes Mary Poppins was totally different but I quite liked that she wasn’t so prim and proper.

    1. I wasn’t as big of a fan though, the soundtrack has grown on me. Honestly, though take my review with a grain of salt because I don’t think I’ve ever been a massive Mary Poppins fan!
      I think Emily Blunt purposely played the character differently, she said that she read the books and from what I know she played the character very close to how she was portrayed in the books. It was certainly a change that’s for sure, and there’s nothing wrong with that.

    1. It was so good, I’m hopefully going to see it again on the weekend!
      YES I ALMOST SCREAMED SHE’S SO BEAUTIFUL WE DON’T DESERVE HER! I did not see the haircut coming AT ALL and I’m so glad Brie Larson went so hard! 😍😍😍😍😍

    1. Right??? That song is CRIMINALLY GOOD!!

      Room is so good and watching it gave me a whole new appreciation for Brie Larson as an actress! I can’t wait to watch more of her movies!
