One Night In Istanbul The Movie

As a massive Liverpool fan i couldn't not write a post on this especially with LFC being back in the Champions League this season its perfect timing.

The plot which is based on the hit play written by Nicky Allts follows two die hard Liverpool fans will do anything to go to Istanbul to watch Liverpool play in the 2005 Champions League final with there sons even if it means striking a deal with a local gangster to fund the once in a lifetime trip.

On the pitch Liverpool are in the midst of making one of footballs greatest comebacks of the pitch Tommy and Gerry are getting them selves into all sorts of trouble.

The trailer looks hilarious with all the antics that Tommy and Gerry get them selves into just so that they can watch the final.

The film stars Steve Waddington, Paul Barber, Lucien Laviscount, Marc Hughes, Samantha Womack, Mark Womack and the one and only Robbie Fowler himself.

The tickets are already on presale at the Odeon with the film set for release on the 11th September here in the UK

Another film based on one Liverpool fans dedicated journey to Istanbul is Will, another brilliant film following his journey to full fill a dream with cameos from some Liverpool legends and some brilliant comedy moments as well. Check out my post here

Favourite Film of the Summer

I know it has been ages since i last posted but if you follow me on twitter (@jodiewillis) you will know that i have just graduated from Liverpool John Moores University and have been a busy bee finding a job, which i did, i am now gainfully employed so now that i have some normality and structure back into my life i can focus a bit more in writing blog posts and aim to write on once a week!

I know it is not quite the end of the summer but i don't think that my favourite film of the summer is going to budge one bit and my favourite film of the summer and probably quite a few peoples favourite film off the summer is GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY!!!

If you haven't seen it yet, have you been living under a rock!! it was amazing and utterly blew my expectations out of the water. As a massive fan of pretty much all of the Marvel films (yes even Iron Man 2) i had no doubt that the special effects would be superb but my doubts were how the story was going to come across and i thought i would constantly be comparing it to the other Marvel films. But it was wrong not only were the special effects superb but the entire film from the cast to the story line to the 80's references.

Chris Pratt as Peter Quill /Star Lord is a fantastic male lead, along with Rocket (Bradley Cooper) , Groot (Vin Diesel), Gamora (Zoe Saldana) and Drax (Dave Bautista) come together to form the most unlikely team in order to save the universe from Ronan who is hell bent on recreating the world with his own beliefs. The dynamics between the 5 unlikely heroes is fantastic a great balance of characters that make the film all that much better.

I have heard rumors that Guardians of the Galaxy will ultimately crossover with the Avengers which i really hope they do because i would love to see Peter Quill have a conversation with Tony Stark.

If you haven't seen Guardians of the Galaxy it will most likely still be on at your local cinema if not i can't imagine that it will be long before it is out on DVD, but deffo worth the watch and you won't regret it.

What was you favourite film of this summer?
