Happy Valentines Day

Happy Valentines Day everyone!!!

If like me you and you actually hate this day you are probs doing something similar to me and my flat mate which includes copious amounts of junk food and films that have no such relation to valentines day.

For the last few years me and my flatmate have completely avoided valentines day and have banned romcoms from our flat. Last year we had a Marvel marathon and the year before we watched Underworld and this year we are channeling our inner nerd, it was a close call between watching all 3 Lord of The Rings movies or Star Trek marathon, Star Trek won out cause we probs wouldn't be able to stay awake through all 9+ hours of LOTR.

Don't get me wrong i love a good romcom and there are normally some good ones out this time of year but i can hold out on seeing them for at least a week to avoid the valentines rush.

Does anyone else have their own Valentines traditions???

The Winter Olympics

If like me your a bit of a sports freak and will pretty much watch any form of sport, including staying up until 3 in the morning to watch the Superbowl even though i live in the UK these next two weeks are full of excitement with the start of the winter Olympics in Sochi (Russia).

My TV and film watching gets over taken by an array of winter sports from Snow Boarding to Figure Skating to Curling (which is awesome) #lovecurling and its brilliant as i cheer on Team GB but also discover some sports i never new about of which the Moguls are my favourite, don't actually see the point of it but its brilliant hurling yourself down a hill full of bumps and jumps as fast as you can. What could possibly go wrong???

So bring on the next two week filled with some awesome sporting events. If you live in the UK check out the BBC Sport website for the schedule of events and the latest news.

What events have you enjoyed, discovered or looking forward to?? let me know

The Fault in Our Stars

When i saw the trailer for this film the story line kind of reminded me of Now is Good with Dakota Fanning but i imagine that is not the case.

The film is based on the novel by John Green and follows Hazel (Shailene Woodley) who is suffering from cancer but her world takes another twist when she meets Augustus (Ansel Elgort) at a cancer support meeting and Hazels life takes another turn.

The book is on my very long reading list along with Shailene Woodley's other film this year Divergent and lots of other books.

The trailer looks like its going to be one of the films that is going to take the audience on an emotional roller-coaster but you put your self through it to get to the happy ending.

The film also stars Willem Dafoe, Nat Wolff, Laura Dern and Sam Trammell.

The film is set for release this summer on the 6th June and don't forget to read the book as well
