The Theory of Everything and Annie

Hey All

Back to Monday fun. Apparently this is the most depressing day of the year and buses made sure mine didn’t start great but the boy has tempted me to pieminister and a trip to the cinema after work.

The Cinema is somewhere I’ve been a lot lately, there seems to be loads out I want to see so I thought I’d share something different today and give an overview of some films I’ve seen. 

Just over a week ago I went to see The Theory of Everything. I’d seen it advertised over Christmas and was really keen to see it. I wasn’t really sure what to expect of the film or what it was going to be like but it seemed to be receiving great reviews all round.

Let’s start with the unexpected, I cried. I hadn’t expected it to be a film that would make me cry so I wasn’t prepared for that. The tears started pretty quickly and seemed to cry quite a lot of the film.

It’s one of the best films I’ve seen in a while. It was a film that totally drew you into and it was interesting to see the progression of the disease and how he and his wife dealt with it. To see someone battling with their body shutting down but the mind still being so active was sometimes difficult to watch and you can’t imagine the struggle. The film really showed a lot of his personal life and I absolutely loved it

it. It really deserves all the nomination it’s got. Both me and the dude loved it

 I think it’s a great all round film.

Yesterday I went to the cinema with my housemates they’d really wanted to watch Annie

. I hadn’t been so keen but went along anyways. It was so strange going to the cinema not only on a Sunday but also before lunchtime. It turned out we were the only one’s in there. I hadn’t expected much but it was a really good feel good film. It made me smile throughout and was really good. I loved the songs and you can’t help but sing along. 

It was a great take on the original. The only thing I didn’t like was Jamie Foxx singing. This is a personal thing. He has a great voice but I just found it a bit cringey and almost awkward to watch him. I didn’t expect to enjoy it but really loved it. For an easy to watch film I’d really recommend it.

Tonight we’re off to watch American Sniper and I’m hoping to go and watch Taken 3. What have you seen at the cinema lately? For our Cardiff readers I would fully recommend going to the Vue. It’s so much quieter than the other cinemas and a lot cheaper too. On normal days it’s only £5.50 much cheaper than cineworld and odeon and they do do cheap Tuesday’s as well.

Love M
