Man of Steel

So when i heard that they were going to do another Superman remake i was like okay why?? it hadn't been that long since the last remake but after hearing that Zack Snyder was behind it i was like okay this could actually turn out to be a brilliant film especially as the last remake wasn't brilliant it was okay but nothing special.

After seeing the trailers though i am excited to see the film now it looks spectacular!! Henry Cavill looks like he is going to be a brilliant Superman and hopefully explore the slightly more dark edges that Superman has and that he may not be as straight laced as he appears in other films.

Amy Adams is staring as Lois Lane with Michael Shannon, Diane Lane, Kevin Costner, Russell Crowe and Laurence Fishburne also star in the latest adaptation.

Everyone knows the story of Superman so i am excited to see how Zack Snyder and Christopher Nolan (The Dark Knight Series) adapt the story and which direction that the film will take as the trailers for the film look really good and don't give to much away but it looks fantastic.

Superman is one of the DC classic comic book superheros so hopefully they will get it right.

This summer is going to be the battle of the superheros with Iron Man taking on Superman so it will be interesting to see which one will come out on top.

Henry Cavill looks like he is going to be a brilliant Superman and i can't wait to see the film when it is released on the 14th June 2013

Sky Disney

This has to be my new favourite TV channel.

I was so excited when Sky launched there new Disney Channel, i love Disney films old or new animated or not i love them all and so excited that i can watch them whenever i want!!

I have slowly started to rebuild by Disney collection on DVD since all the ones i have are on video and i no longer have a video player to watch them on :'( so as i slowly build up my collection i can watch all my favourites on Sky.

It gets even better with Sky Go as i can download them on to my lap top with Sky Desktop and watch them when ever i want. It is great for traveling as i can watch the films offline only bad thing is that they delete themselves after 30 days so i have to re-download them if i wan tot watch them again.

If you don't yous Sky Go you should its brilliant you can catch up with all your favourite shows and movies online. I know you can Sky+ everything now but you can't record more than two programs at once and by using Sky Go you can watch it all on the go without missing a single episode of you favourite show.

I think i am going to be watching this channel constantly.

I just hope that they put Beauty and the Beast in there soon as it is my all time favourite.

Check out Sky channel  305

What is you favourite Disney film??

Veronica Mars

Sorry I haven't been posting in while i have had so much uni work to do other wise this post would have been written a while ago.

Congrats Marshmallows thanks to every one's donations Veronica Mars the Movie is going ahead.

If like me you religiously watched the watched the kickstarter page watching the donations coming in and were amazed when the page hit its goal in 11 hours breaking the kickstarter record and that isn't the only record that the project broke. It was the fastest project to get to $1 million and $2 million. It was the highest funded film project at $5,702,153 and is the 3rd highest funded project of all time. All thanks to the record breaking number of backers totaling 91585.

With the amount of money that was pledged we are in for a great film and i am already excited to see the film when it is release next year.

If you were lucky enough to grab and of the packages up for grabs congrats, if i lived in the states i would love to have gone for one of the red carpet packages it would be so cool to go to one and meet all the cast.

The packages up for grabs were amazing and was amazed how quickly some of them ran out, the Logan Lovers packages and the Comic Con packages all went in like 13 minutes!! and i still can't believe that someone pledged $10,000! 

I can not wait for all my favourite characters to be reunited on the big screen cause i was proper gutted when the show got cancelled.

Star Kristen Bell will be returning as the teen detective Veronica Mars with Jason Dohring, Percy Daggs, Ryan Hanson, Enrico Colantoni, Francis Capra and Tina Majorino. I hope creator Rob Thomas is hard at work on the script as expect everyone is going to have high expectations for the film.

I am so excited!!

I think this may start a trend as to shows getting a reboot

What shows would you like to see get rebooted????

Dirty Dancing

This is a film that everyone needs to watch!!!

One of my favourite films of ALL TIME!!!!

When i was out with the girls the other night and at least 3 songs from the sound track of this film came on and just made me want to curl up and watch it. Along with Grease i can count on Dirty Dancing to put a smile back on my face when Patrick Swazey famously says "Don't put baby in  the corner" and who doesn't sing with when 'time of your life'.

If you have never seen the film Baby (Jennifer Grey) and her family are on summer vacation to a resort in the 1960's. Baby is the good girl of the family and is going to go into the Peace Core after she graduates from college. During her first few days at the Kellerman's resort Baby meets Johnny (Patrick Swayze) one of the dance instructors and is intrigued by the 'dirty dancing' that she sees when she goes to a staff party with Billy she carries "a watermelon" and ends up dancing with johnny again.

Johnny's dance partner finds out shes pregnant by a guy who doesn't care about her only how he can further himself (not going to mention who it is because SPOILER you just have to watch to find out) any way after some discussion Baby agrees to fill in for Penny and dance with Johnny the only thing is that she doesn't know how to dance and its up to Johnny to teach her. This leads to one of my favourite scenes in the whole film, where they go to the lake to practice the lifts and ignites there love for each other.

I don't really want so say much more because if you haven't seen it then i don't want to give away any spoilers but if you have seen it then you know just how great this film is. It is a film that everyone should see, it is the ultimate love story good girl falls in love with the bad boy who daddy doesn't approve of when actual fact he should be more worried about her sisters boyfriend.

The film stars Jennifer Grey, Patrick Swayze, Jerry Orbach, Kelly Bishop, Jane Brucker, Cynthia Rose, Jack Weston, Max Cantor, Lonny Price and Neal Jones.

The film won a Golden Globe, a Grammy and an Academy award for best song for '(I've had) The Time of My Life' which i still love to this day.

I have heard rumors that they are planning to remake this film and in my opinion it just shouldn't be touched remakes rarely work and in most cases they are always way worse than the original. It is such an iconic film that is loved by everyone across the generations i would hate it if it got remade.

The film is available on DVD from amazon for £3 so its a great bargain and with that price whats left to say.

Rating: 10/10

Whats your favourite part of the film??

Thor: The Dark World Trailer

So excited!!!

The first trailer for Thor 2 has just been released showing Chris Hemsworth back as the Norse God of Thunder.

At the end of the first film we see Thor defeat his brother but end up stuck in Asgard with no way to return to earth. In Avengers we see him manage to return to earth some how which i hope gets explained about getting back to earth after the bridge was destroyed in the first one. Any way Thor comes back to earth and kicks some alien ass with the rest of our favourite marvel heroes.

This time around Thor is to face of against Malekith (Christopher Eccleston) and the race known as the Dark Elves. Exciting times!!

Natalie Portman is back as Thor's love interest Jane as well as Kat Dennings, Idris Elba, Anthony Hopkins, Rene Russo, Zachery Levi and you can't forget the brilliant Tom Hiddleston as Thor's evil adopted brother Loki.

Alan Taylor, better known for directing the brilliant Game of Thrones is behind the camera replacing Kenneth Branagh.

I am hoping along with Iron Man 3 it will help set up for the next Avengers film as it slowly starts to put the pieces together as it did the last time around.

The trailer looks really good and has me really excited to see more!!

Check it out

The film is due out on the 30th October 2013

New Mortal Instruments Trailer

Getting so excited to see this film!!!!!!

The release of the new trailer for The Mortal Instruments has me excited to see this film. The trailer is brilliant giving us little snippets that the previous trailer didn't, including some more Robert Sheehan (Simon) and Jamie Campbell Bower (Jace).

If you haven't read the books, (you need to they are brill!!!), then the basic over view of the story is that Clary (Lily Collins) is a shadow hunter but didn't know about (her mum kept it hidden) it until she meets Jace and his friends and she get introduced into a whole new world of demons, vampires, werewolves and witches and basically shadow hunters are the people who hunt the demons before they can hurt anyone. Clary's mum goes missing and its left up to Clary to find her and stop the bad guys, along the way she discovers who she really is and what her mother has hidden her from.

I love these books so much that i really hope that the film doesn't ruin them for me and that they stick to the book as much as possible because i hate it when they completely change things.The world that Cassandra Clare created is amazing and you can just get lost in the books and i hope that all my favourite bits from the books are in the film plus i can't wait to see some of my favourite characters come to life. The trailer looks really good so i hope that it lives up to my expectations.

The film also stars Kevin Zegers, Lena Headey, Kevin Durand, Aidan Turner, Jamima West, Godfrey Gao, CCH Pounder, Jarred Harris and Johnathan Rhys-Meyers and directed by Harald Zwart.

Before you see the films i highly recommend you read the brilliant books first by Cassandra Clare

The film is due out on the 23rd August.

Who else is looking forward to seeing City of Bones
