It’s that time of year again when distant, long forgotten members of your family decide to re-enter your lives for one night, and one night only. You get dragged to the party in your best outfit (can’t let the distant cousins see you in some shabby jeans now can we?) and forced to spend what seems like a year having painful memories inflicted upon you by people you are sure you’ve never met!
Director: Francis Lawrence
Starring: Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, Julianne Moore, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Jeffrey Wright, Stanley Tucci, Donald Sutherland, Sam Claflin, Natalie Dormer
Okay, so I’m going to admit to this; I haven’t seen ‘Catching Fire’, but I have read the books so I didn’t feel too out of whack when I went to see this film. I understood what had happened and didn’t feel like I had missed a large chunk of the storyline by not seeing the previous movie.
Director: John Madden
Starring: Judi Dench, Bill Nighy, Penelope Wilton, Dev Patel, Celia Imrie, Ronald Pickup, Tom Wilkinson, Maggie Smith
Based Upon: These Foolish Things by Deborah Moggach
I remember this film being out in the cinema and, unfortunately, I didn’t get to see it… but let me say, this film was totally worth the wait!
Recently, I’ve been trying out a method where I do things I wouldn’t normally do or feel that I can’t do for whatever reason. Instead of saying no to opportunities that have come my way, I have started saying yes, and even taking risks in the process! In doing so I’ve found a burst of confidence I didn’t know I had, I have started to stop doubting myself and diving head first into new experiences and whatever life throws at me; whether that be dance shows, blogging opportunities or simply trying out a new hairstyle.
