It’s against the law to shop on a Sunday

Originally posted on Edge of the Arctic:
I peered down the shopping street that I live by this morning and found it completely empty. Typically packed with shoppers, Bogstadveien, one of Oslo’s biggest shopping streets, was a ghost town. That’s because it’s Sunday which in…

Film Etiquette- a Rant

I like to be in a cinema screen early. Especially when I haven’t selected my seat at the box office (which I hate with a passion by the way). I am very particular where I sit when I go alone- a seat central to…

Slow West- 15 

   I am not a fan of Westerns. There are very few that I have liked. It’s not the genre’s fault; they focus on a violent and negative time. What I find surprising about Slow West is how full of hope it actually is….

Mental Health- Ramblings of a scared and abandoned woman #mentalhealth #ramblings #Han

This is a post I wrote for a secret blog a few years ago. Because it was written just for me and not for an audience, it’s rather candid. I had an operation this week. One I’ve been waiting a year and a half…

Magic Mike XXL- 15

So we won’t see this film in the Oscar running, but lets face it people are not watching it for the plot. However, I want to argue the criticism that this film is plot-less with beautiful dancing hunks of meat for viewers to drool…

Minions- U

I have not seen Despicable Me. I don’t know why and I feel like I’ve missed out. Minions for me, is one of Dreamworks’ best and should put to rest any rumours that the production company are in trouble. Better plot than the Penguins…

Entourage- 15

It’s films like this that remind me that my humour comes from my brother. I like crude, rude and downright silly. I was the only woman in a room of about 10 others. I laughed loud and I laughed hard at those stupid jokes….

Jurassic World- 12A

I’ve been told this is the best film of the four. I’ve also been told I would never, ever, be able to say that. It’s true. Jurassic Park is my film. It’s the start of my love of film and I will always be…

Home- U

AKA- Sheldon Cooper is an Alien. The plot is fairly simple enough; Outcast alien messes up, many times, before helping saving the day and showing the rest of his species that different isn’t always bad. It’s enjoyable and harmless, but it’s still just a…

Terminator Genisys -12A

He will always be back. Just like Star Trek (2009), Paramount/Skydance productions have used time travel to give us a new spin on an original story. Post apocalyptic soldier Kyle Reese (played well by no stranger to franchises that should stay dead- Jai Courtney)…
