After hearing mixed reviews for the latest production of the classic lizard-like monster Godzilla, I was determined to make my own decision and check it out at the cinemas, instead of waiting for the DVD, which was my initial plan. I'm certainly glad that I made that decision, because I thought it was great! Our synopsis for this latest retelling, starring Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Bryan Cranston and Elizabeth Olsen, suggests a slightly different spin on the world famous fictional creature: "Godzilla fights malevolent creatures that threaten humanity." That's right, Godzilla is the good guy! Now, I'm not old enough to remember… read more »

Ten years ago today the movie Shrek 2 was released in movie theatres. The animated comedy which featured the voices of Mike Myers, Cameron Diaz, Eddie Murphy and Julie Andrews was much anticipated by audiences young and old, but who knew just how big a hit it would be? The 2004 movie is the highest US grossing comedy of all time, making a total of $436 million! Joining it in the top five are Toy Story 3, Frozen, Finding Nemo and Despicable Me 2, all of which are great films but found it hard to beat the Shrek sequel. To celebrate… read more »

  Ten years ago with tears in our eyes we had to say goodbye to the TV show that has been our friend between 1994 and 2004. Of course I'm talking about Friends! It's been a decade, just let it sink in. If the show was still running Ross's son Ben would be 19 this year, Emma would be 11, Monica and Chandler's twins would be turning 10. And let's not forget Phoebe's triplets who would now be about 15 years old! Mind blown! And still somehow all the jokes are relevant and funny, we still remember the lyrics of… read more »

Can you believe it has been ten years since the epic teen movie Mean Girls was released in cinemas? Yes, a decade ago fresh faced Lindsay Lohan graced our screens as Cady Heron, a teenage girl who moved from Africa to America and then thrown in to the hell that is high school. It was here that she met plastics, Regina George, Gretchen Wieners and Karen Smith; three self-absorbed popular beauties who took new girl Cady under their wing but were ready to drop her in an instant should she not live up to their high expectations and follow their crazy rules. Since this chick… read more »

We all loved watching Disney movies growing up as a kid, and most of us still do! I remember playing princesses with my sister when we were little and we would each pretend to be a Disney character. I would choose to be Jasmine from Aladdin and my sister would be Belle from Beauty and the Beast. We chose these princesses in particular as their hair colour matched each of ours - it made sense to us, even though neither of us really looked like the pretty animations. Now, Angelina Jolie may well have played princesses as a child too but she… read more »
