Film Friday – Part 1

Hi all!

As you can probably guess from the title of this post, I am going to be sharing some more films with you today. This time, instead of ones I have already watched and love, it is going to be ones that are being released this year that I can’t wait to see!

There are sooooo many films released every year. Big blockbusters that we see adverts for everywhere, and then the smaller, indie films that fewer people have heard of.

Now me, I kinda like the blockbusters. The kick-ass action films, the comedy that makes even the grumpiest person chuckle, the tear-jerking romance that always ends with a kiss, the musical that has the whole world singing along, and I quite like a good sci-fi as well (live long and prosper 😉 )

So, what has the Hollywood (and the British Film Industry) got in store for us in 2015?

The Theory Of Everything

Well, you may have already seen The Theory of Everything (I know I have) starring Eddie Redmayne as Steven Hawking. This is a fantastic film that brought tears to my eyes. It was fantastically portrayed and fully deserves whatever awards it may win!!! If you get the chance to see it at the cinema, I highly recommend it, but if it is no longer showing in your area, look out for it when it is released on DVD! And a quick congrats to Eddie who won the Oscar for Best Actor!!! 🙂


Into The Woods

Into The Woods is another great film that I was able to see the other day. It is a recently released musical that is based on some of the well know stories from the Grimm brothers. With some great actors and actresses including Meryl Streep, Emily Blunt, Chris Pine & James Cordon; this is quite a fun film, with some great songs throughout (maybe none quite as catchy as ‘Let It Go’ though). Give it a go, you might be pleasantly surprised.

Kingsman The Secret Service

I have also been able to see Kingsman: The Secret Service this past weekend. And can I say straight off – GREAT FILM!!! A fantastically portrayed spy film with some ‘on the edge of your seat’ action sequences and some brilliant humour. My friend and I laughed throughout at Samuel L. Jackson’s character (watch the film and you will know why). Again, some great names involved, Colin Firth takes the lead along with newcomer Taron Egerton; Michael Caine, Mark Strong and Sofia Boutella.

The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel

Following hot on the heals of the first film, Dev Patel returns along with a star-studded cast in The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel. This film certainly promises to be bigger and better than the original, and even features Richard Gere. I am sat on the edge of my seat waiting for this film to come out!


I know the whole Cinderella and figurative glass slipper thing has been redone many times over the years, with modern and historical versions alike. But I am really looking forward to this film. I mean, who doesn’t want to see Helena Bonham Carter as the Fairy Godmother?


The second part in the Divergent Series comes out next month – are you as excited as I am? Nuff said on this one I think.

Jupiter Ascending

This film looks like it is going to be another great action film with Channing Tatum & Mila Kunis, along with Eddie Redmayne in an intergalactic storyline. I don’t really see a problem here.

The Avengers Age of Ultron

Another action film, but this time The Avengers are back. Tony, Cap, Thor, Hawkeye, Hulk and Romanov are back, with some new names in the lineup. And of course, our fave eye patch is back – Samuel L. Jackson is back in the game as Nick Fury. YAY!

Pitch Perfect 2

Ready to get “pitch slapped”? The second film is out soon! Have a girly sing-a-long with your bezzies to what is promising to be another corker of a show! I wonder if Rebel Wilson will demonstrate anymore Mermaid Dancing?! 🙂


 We get another dose of Bond later this year! Should be another great film (although it will be a bit sad cus no more Judi Dench as M). Quick question, have you seen the new Aston Martin they are bringing out for the film?

There are plenty more films due to be released this year. I will be sharing some more with you all very soon! Stay tuned for another ‘To Watch’ list. 🙂
