Think Like A Man (DVD) 15/11/2017

Think Like a Man

Think Like A Man (DVD) Think Like a Man Price: £5.00 Released: 2012 Certificate: 12 Running Time: 123 Minute I am sleeping on the sofa for the week with no TV in my bedroom I am most definitely replacing my late night reading with watching films which I don't tend to do so much any more due to having a 2 year old who usually wakes me up at 5 am and so much studying to do.I got rid of my bed a week before my new one arrives, because I have no storage for 2 king size beds and the council could only remove it on a Wednesday and were fully booked next week luckily my sofa is comfortable. Steve is a love expert and he releases a book of advice for women so women stopped turning to their friends for advice and turnto him. Steve says Don't hate the player, change the game. A book written about men for woman and it was extremely popular, it taught them different tactics to get what they want. From wanting commitment from a non commitment man to getting a man to stop dreaming about a job to actually getting one. When the guys find out about the book they try to play the girls at their own game. To get what they want they start to tell the girls what they want to hear 'it's like taking a test you already have the answers too' It was a really good plot and with all the different relationships being shown. All the men were on the same basketball team (Why is it always basketball?) so they were sharing with one another about their thoughts and a couple of the girls were friends so you could really see ...

Penelope (DVD) 09/11/2017

Penelope

Penelope (DVD) Penelope Price: £3.25 Certificate: U We have had this on DVD for so long, I've been sorting out our dvds, Santa always brings loads and we have no space left so the old ones needed to go. I don't remember watching this film so thought we'd put it on today. Penelope was born under a curse, her great great great grandfather Ralph had a fling with Clara the servant girl, he told his family of his plans to marry her, he realised how silly he had been after all Clara was just a servant girl and people of wealth do not marry servants. Ralph married someone of money and far mosre suitable and Clara commited suicide. Clara's mother was the town witch and put a curse on the Wilhern family that the next Wilhurn daughter will be born with the face of a pig until one of their own kind learns to love them. Five generations of Wilhurns had sons. Penelope was the first daughter and she carried the nose of a pig. Penelopes mother kept her away from the public and faked her death so no reporters would bother them she tried and tried to find someone to marry her daughter but as soon as men saw her nose they screamed and ran away. The men who came to see Penelope signed documents to say they wont tell anyone except for one guy Edward Humphrey Vanderman III he ran straight to the police station but they all laughed at him except one reporter Lemon who remembers the Pig baby. Lemon pays a guy called 'Max' (real name Johnny) to get inside the house and take a photo of Penelope. He got the photo ...

Picture This! (DVD) 10/10/2017

Picture This

Picture This! (DVD) Picture This Price: £4.95 Certificate: 12 Released: 2008 Running Time: 88 minutes I saw this in my local library sale and thought it would be a really good funny film that would require little concentration so I could just watch it whilst getting on with work... I ended up getting very little work done. Mandys' school is split like most schools in American films the popular kids and the nobodies.. Mandy is a nobody and fancies the hottest guy in school Drew Patterson. Mandy's life changes when Drew invites Mandy to a party after saving her life when she falls into the swimming pool but she's grounded. Mandy's dad is over protective and when she's studying over at her friends house he calls every 30 minutes and asks her to show him where she is on video chat.. How is Mandy going to get to the party with her dad always calling? I think this is the shortest film I've ever seen, It was good but could have done with more. My favourite scene is when Tom Gilbert is babysitting his nephew and he loses him and you can see that his daughter Mandy and him have the exact same mindset. Casting Ashley Tisdale as Mandy Gilbert Kevin Pollak as Tom Gilbert Lauren Collins as Alexa Shenae Grimes-Beech as Cayenne Robbie Amell as Drew Patterson Cindy Busby as Lisa Cross The casting is quite well known, I knew of Ashley Tisdale from her role in High school musical, shamelessly admitting that yes I was a fan of that back in the day when most teenagers would be dancing and singing along to ...

Roommate , The(DVD) 15/09/2017

The Roommate

Roommate , The(DVD) The Room mate Price:£4.73 Certificate:15 Running Time:94 minutes Released:2011 I feel like summer has come to an end the weather has turned miserable and the evenings are slowly becoming darker, this means it's time for nights snuggled up on the sofa watching movies and box sets. I love Autumn and Winter, my favourite times of the year cold, frosty evenings snuggled up with a hot beverage and a good film. Sara is assigned room 316 with Rebecca. From early on in the film you could tell that Rebecca didn't want to share Sara. Sara would go out with her other friends and Rebecca would opt out on joining them by saying 'it wasn't her thing' but be the one to pick up the pieces when things don't go well. Rebecca would order the same food and drinks as Sara. Sara's friend Tracy starts to get really creeped out by Rebecca, she always seems to be there just staring at her.Sara gets a new boyfriend and Rebecca starts to get jealous, she feels like shes losing her so she takes action. Why do people go towards trouble? Tracy is in the shower the lights go out instead of turning off the shower and leaving she walked towards another cubicle and opened the curtain, no one was there, then another shower started running, she went towards that. Any sane person would have just left. This film contains animal cruelty, a cat is put in the washing machine ( I'm sure no real animals were harmed in the making of this film) Casting Leighton Meester as Rebecca Evans Minka Kelly as Sara ...

The Forgotten (DVD) 13/09/2017

The Forgotten

The Forgotten (DVD) The Forgotten Released: 2004 Certificate:12 Running Time: 90 minutes. Price: £3.49 My movie marathon continued last night with a science fiction psychological thriller, my favourite genre. The Forgotten has been a film I've wanted to watch for a while. I've heard great reviews on it. I like films which make me think, if they have a twist in the end its a huge bonus. Telly believes that she lost her son in a plane crash 14 months prior to the film only she wakes up one day and everyone is telling her that she never had a son. The story they tell her is she had a miscarriage, a baby who was premature and a still born.. she sees a therapist as she believes that she had a son for 9 years. Telly goes to visit one of her sons friends dad and he thinks she is bonkers as he believes he never had a daughter, it takes a few moments but he soon believes her and he remembers his daughter. Why is everyone covering up the plane crash and pretending that the people who died in it didn't exist? Did they die or are they missing? The story line was really easy to follow, I was gripped and I did wonder throughout what was going to happen. was this lady just crazy or had the world forgotten about these children? Casting Julianne Moore as Telly Paretta Dominic West as Ash Correll Christopher Kovaleski as Sam Paretta Matthew Pleszewicz as Young Sam Jessica Hecht as Eliot Gary Sinise as Dr. Jack Munce Alfre Woodard as Det. Anne Pope Anthony Edwards as Jim Paretta Kathryn Faughnan as ...

Circle (2015) (DVD) 05/09/2017

Circle.. who will survive?

Circle (2015) (DVD) Circle Price: £15.90 Released: 2015 I have decided I am having a horror movie week, although this is more of a science fiction film. I know you shouldn't judge a film by the cover ( I'm sure it's the same for films as it is for books) but this one looked good, I liked the artwork on the cover so I decided to give this one a watch today I was hoping it would be gripping and interesting and be something to make me think. Before watching the film the only thing I knew was that 50 people are kidnapped and put in a room and are slowly killed off. The film starts with 50 people who have been taken and are placed in a circle within a chamber, there is a voting system to decide who dies. You vote with your fist each round, and then the person with the most votes dies. People try to take lead of the group, some come across as really arrogant and rude so they are soon gone.Firstly the group decides to kill off the people who are older than 70 as in the real world they would be the next to die. Everyone is scared and thinking irrationally. They then start looking for people to volunteer. A 16 year old kid didn't want to kill anyone so he volunteered to be killed, but another man volunteered instead to replace him. Some of the people in there come across as really nice whilst others keep finding reasons why someone else should die. Who has the right to decide if someone has the right to live or die. Who deserves to survive? This film raises a lot of philosophical, ethical, and ...

Case 39 (DVD) 03/09/2017

Case 39

Case 39 (DVD) Case 39 Price: £3.75 Released:2010 Certificate: 15 I love a good horror film every now and again and this one has been on my to be watched pile for so long. With an evening free and after a pretty awful day I thought I'd put off work and sit down and watch a horror film. My favourite type of horror/thriller is a psychological, not only do i like watching them but also readying them. I like to have to think about what is going on and try and understand how something like that could have happened. Emily Jenkins is a social worker and is assigned a case 'case 39' she travels and meets the Sullivan family. Emily thought there was something wrong at the house she had been told they were neglecting their daughter who went from being a straight A daughter to being a D student in a couple of months Lily was also finding it hard to sleep at home so often fell asleep in class. The parents came across as weird, the father refused to talk to Emily and said he didn't wish to talk to her when he was so angry. Emily wanted Lily out of the house. Lily tells Emily that she is scared, she heard her parents talking in the cellar, they are sending her to hell. Lily asked Emily if she disappeared would she go looking for her. Emily replied of course. One evening Emily received a call from a very frightened Lily who said she was scared and when arriving at the house, after bashing the door down, she finds that the parents had put Lily in the oven and had turned it on.... Both parents were ...

How To Get Away With Murder Season 1 (DVD) 31/08/2017

How to get away with murder

How To Get Away With Murder Season 1 (DVD) How to get away with murder season one Price: £7.98 Released: 2014 Certificate: 15 It's been over a month since I was last on here, my son poured water over my laptop which completely frazzled the hard drive and made it impossible to fix, buying a new laptop was not part of my monthly plan but I am finally back and writing on 'notepad' which is weird. I have heard great things about this season and with it being on Netflix I just couldn't resist a quick binge watch. I didn't really know what to expect before watching it. With it being the summer holidays my only time to watch anything is during the evenings and who really needs sleep? How to get away with murder follows Professor Annalise Keating as she teaches her law students criminal law 100 or How to get away with murder as she likes to call it, she teaches her students how to practice law in a court room as opposed to just studying it like her students other classes. Annalise sets a task for her class to find out which of them she was going to take forward into helping her with her cases. Annalise doesn't take too kindly to students being unprepared. Annalise gives her students a day to find a defence for her client. They are all given 1 minute to present to the class what they find out and no two students are allowed to present the same idea. Wes Gibbons who was unprepared for the first task is told he will be going last so really needs to think about what he can say to stay in the class which will be original. ...

Lego Duplo 10617 My First Farm 10/07/2017

My First Farm

Lego Duplo 10617 My First Farm Duplo: My First Farm - 10617 Price: £9.59 My little boy is duplo mad at the moment, and he loves his animals usually he tries to combine both his playmobil animals and his duplo pieces which leads to a few strops as the Playmobil animals don't stay in place very well. I decided to pop to the toyshop and get him the Duplo my first farm, I thought with duplo animals this would lead to far less tantrums... Duplo is brilliant, I love that there is lego suitable for small hands, it definitely keeps my son busy for hours. The box is bigger than it needs to be and I don't think there really needed to be 3 plastic bags comtaining the pieces, one would have been enough. 26 pieces in total which include a cow a Sheep a Chicken 3 bricks which have a picture on of either milk, eggs or wool to represent the different produce you get from the animals. 2 x roof pieces 2 x Archways 3 x doors ( or windows- whatever you want to call them) 2x children 1x base 1x Manual These pieces are really easy to fit together, my tw year old hasno trouble at all fitting the pieces together and taking them apart. He especially loves the animals and has already pointed out in the manual ( also shows other sets) which set he wants next, though that will have to wait. The duplo set isn't expensive but they do add up. They typically range from £10 - £59 depending on what size set you buy. My First Farm is part of the farm life set which also includes -Farm Tractor Play Set - Duplo Big Farm I think ...

Person of Interest Season 1 (DVD) 07/07/2017

Person of Interest Season one

Person of Interest Season 1 (DVD) Person of interest season 1 Price: £9.99 Certificate: 15 Released: 2013 This series has been recommended to me by so many people, but I just didn't know if it was going to be the type of Tv show I like, but I thought I would give it a go and borrowed season one from my friends boyfriend. Crime Drama's aren't usually my genre but I quite enjoyed this one. The producer is J.J Abrams which is the same as Lost which is my ultimate favourite box set which I have watched more times than I care to admit. This show follows a man called Harold Finch who is trying to stop crimes happening before they happen he is working with a former CIA agent and special force agent John Reese. John Reese was a homeless man and alcoholic after leaving the forces. Finch saved him from a life of misery and offers him a job and after a shave and a shower he actually turned out looking pretty good. Reese definitely didn't forget any of his training whilst drinking when he kicks a group of teenagers butts on the train. After 9/11 Harold Finch created a database which could help him prevent crimes it gives him social security numbers of people who may be in danger. Finch and reese then track these people down, find out why they are in trouble and try to prevent it from happening. The CIA have absolutely no idea how Finch does it and how he reports every crime before they even have a hint of what's happening. Finch doesn't like carrying any weapons with him so when he has to go in on his own he hopes he ...

Pretty Little Liars Season 7 (DVD) 28/06/2017

The Final Season of Pretty Little Liars

Pretty Little Liars Season 7 (DVD) Pretty Little Liars Season 7 Certificate: 15 Released: 2017 I have just finished watching Pretty Little Liars season 7 on netflix. The last season. The Final season of Pretty Little Liars, I was expecting it to end with something big and spectacular. I expected all questions to be answered and no new surprises. 'Let's play a game... a board game' The girls are part of a board game and they have to do tasks to get a jigsaw piece all the pieces show a map but the girls need to get all the pieces to know what or who is there. If they don't play they go to jail if they do play they get rewarded... The police are already on their case and their friendships are constantly being tested. The amount of lies is hard to keep up with. I'm hoping there will be very little spoilers but if you plan on watching this show you should probably skip the next paragraph as spoilers from previous seasons may be included. This season has had many ups and downs, I really liked how there was a happy ending and all was well in their lives. I didn't like how they introduced another character into the season on the last episode. It has been fairly obvious for the majority of the seasons that Mona was involved with 'A' some how and then when 'A' was revealed and 'A.D' came along she was also involved she was desperate to be accepted by people even if that meant joining both the good and the bad team. I can't believe after everything the girls have done including killing a man, none of them end up ...

Surviving Summer (DVD) 21/06/2017

Surviving Summer

Surviving Summer (DVD) Surviving Summer Price: £2.74 Certificate: 15 Released: 2010 Running time: 91 minutes I've recently got netflix and this is the first movie which was recommended to me, it took me 3 attempts to watch it. The first time I fell asleep, the 2 time my son had a really restless night so i was constantly leaving the room so had no idea what was going on. Third time lucky. This film is also called 'According to greta' and 'greta' This film stars Hilary Duff who growing up, I was a fan of. I loved the tv show lizzie mcguire movie. I don't think I have seen anything in awhile with her in. When I clicked the film I didn't know she was in it. Greta is a troubled teenager, she has two lists, one is a list of things she wants to do before she dies. The other is a list of ways to die.Greta plans to commit suicide before she is 18. Her father committed suicide, she doesn't have a very good relationship with her mother who keeps getting re married Gretas mother sends Greta to live with her grandparents for the summer hoping this will sort her out otherwise it will be boot camp for the troubled teenagers. Greta breaks all the rules, gets a job and is rude to the al customers. She hates being at her grandparents she feels like she's back living in the stone age, they don't even have cable. This is a really easy to follow story, it all runs a bit too smoothly. I thought there could have been a bit more action or something but it was fairly predictable and for a film about a suicidal girl ...

Gilmore Girls Season 1

Gilmore Girls - Series 1 (Box Set) (DVD) Gilmore Girls Season One Price: £8.14 Certificate: 12 Released: 2000 After I finished watching Pretty Little Liars, I wanted a series to watch which wouldn't involve me staying up all night and a mystery which needed solving and Gilmore Girls has always been a show i've enjoyed although before I just watched random episodes rather than from the beginning. The Gilmore Girls follows a mother and Daughter both named Lorelai Gilmore but the daughter is known as Rory to make things a little easier. Lorelai had Rory at the age of 16, then moved away from her parents who she believed were trying to control her and sets up home in Stars Hollow, she runs and Inn and Rory excels in school.

Pretty Little Liars Season 6

Pretty Little Liars Season 6 (DVD) Pretty Little Liars Season 6 Price: £11.99 Certificate: 12 Released: 2016 Pretty Little Liars is based on a book series by Sara Shepard. A young school girl called Alison goes missing, a year after her disappearance a body is found and from that moment on Alison's friends Hanna, Emily, Aria and Spencer receive messages from a mystery person called A. 'A' knows everything about the girls, he or she has been watching and studying them for many years but the identity of this person has never been revealed until this season. Season 6 starts how season 5 ended and all the girls are traumatised after what happened to them at the end of season 5, relieved that they finally think 'A' has been caught and identified they try and move on with their lives... until they get another message from 'A' then they realise that 'A' is still out there. We finally find out who 'A' is in this season but it's not over. 5 years later and they still don't have a peaceful life, they are all summoned back to Rosewood and the messages start again only they know 'A' is dead, they went to the funeral and saw the body. So who is sending the messages now? I really like that half the series is set 5 years later, it's interesting to see where everyone is 5 years after they discovered who 'A' is. Aria is the only one who still seems to be scared of 'A' All the girls moved out of Rosewood, as soon as they are back there's another death... They all look suspicious. 1. Game on, Charles 2.

Pretty Little Liars Season 5 (DVD) 06/06/2017

Pretty Little Liars Season 5

Pretty Little Liars Season 5 (DVD) Pretty Little Liars Season 5 Price: £12.99 Certificate: 12 Released: 2015 Pretty Little Liars is based on the book series by Sara Shepard. When Alison DiLaurentis goes missing the girls start receiving messages from a mystery person who goes by the name of 'A' they have absolutely no idea who this person is but they know everything about them, like he or she is constantly watching them. Season 5, only 2 seasons to go. I was really disappointed by Season 4, It was my least favourite season but I need to know who 'A' is so I've continued to watch. This season was so much better than the previous that I'm glad season 4 didn't ruin it completely for me. There's another death in Rosewood and the girls are being accused of murder. There is so much going on in this series and with Toby now in the police force you would think it would make finding 'A' that little bit easier but it doesn't... He takes his job very seriously and it's not easy when his girlfriend is out there causing trouble and breaking the law or helping someone else do it. The Hastings have taken in a lodger who likes to be creative and vandalism is high up on his list of hobbies. A lot of secrets are revealed in this season but more lies are said. It's hard to know exactly what the truth is anymore and no one can be trusted in Rosewood. Episodes 1. EscApe from New York 2. Whirly Girlie 3. Suffering The AfterShocks 4. Thrown From The Ride 5.
