I am in my twenties but due to my parents I have a love for Hammer Horror. I was sceptical when I found out that they were going to do a remake of Dracula as Christoper Lee is the best Dracula in my opinion. However, I love period dramas, so this was still an excuse to sit down and watch on a Thursday night. I was totally blown away. I heard some reviews from the older generation who were not watching it as they said it wasn't closely based on the original book. But for me this was a bonus as I love creative dramas and with this version of Dracula I didn't know what was going to happen next. That was what made it so exciting for me. I was totally gutted when I found out that they are… Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars BEST FILM THIS SUMMER, 17 July 2013
I went to see this film last month when it came out and I can honestly say that it is a fantastic movie! I have loved French cinema ever since I started learning French when I was 12 in school. I am now fluent in French and love watching French films as the French can do it all - humour, drama, sinister plots, romance etc. This film is a real romantic comedy. The relationship between the main characters is very much that of Professor Higgins and Eliza in My Fair Lady.

I laughed so much when watching this as it is a real feel good movie. I will be buying it… Read more
Random Harvest by James Hilton
Random Harvest by James Hilton
I remember when I was around 15 my dad told me about the film Random Harvest with Ronald Coleman and Greer Garson and how it was one of his favourite films. I sat down and watched it one day with dad and it became one of my favourite films there and then of all time. Ten years later I decided to read the book. They are both equally amazing. To be honest I personally think that the film was better but this is still a 5 star book. If you haven't seen the film and read the book for the first time there is a twist at the end of it which alas the film cannot do (for reasons you will find out). A real page turner about the life of a WWI solider after the war. He has been put into an asylum… Read more
