I’m all ready for the weekend. A movie night, some snacks, and some friends invited round are my favourite kind of catch ups. But whenever we get together, we have no idea what to watch? We always end up watching some kind of chick flick as it’s something we can all enjoy. Here’s my top 7 picks:

Breakfast at Tiffany’s


I bought a DVD box set of Audrey Hepburn films a few years ago now. But still, Breakfast at Tiffany’s will always be my go to Hepburn.

The Notebook


Because who doesn’t want to spend a few hours dreaming about Ryan Gosling.

Romy and Micheles High School Reunion


I watched this when it was still on Netflix and loved it. I make all of my friends watch it now.

Mean Girls


Well of course Mean Girls would be on this list. It’s the ultimate girls night film.

10 Things I Hate About You


Heath Ledger is a dream in 10 Things I Hate About You. The serenade was the best part.

She’s the Man


I used to love Amanda Byne’s and especially in this film. I just loved her attitude of doing exactly what she wants even though she’s a woman.

Clueless


Everyone loves Clueless right?

Who else is still a Disney fanatic? I was talking to one of my friends, who’s obsessed, about what our favourite Disney Films are. I decided that I would share my top 5 films with you (although my top 5 changes all the time). Just as a quick post to give you a bit more insight into who I am, since I’ve been doing so many review’s recently.

1. The Little Mermaid

2. Brave

3. Lady and the Tramp

4. Toy Story

5. Treasure Planet

 

What are your favourite Disney films?

King Arthur

I’m always up for a retelling of myths and legends so this new Arthur film is exciting.

Pirates of the Caribean

Who doesn’t love Captain Jack Sparrow? Although the last film wasn’t quite up to standards I’m still ready to see the next installment.

About Ray

I’m so up for watching this film about transgender transitioning. Hopefully they do it justice and dont make any insensitive mistakes.

Everything, Everything

This romantic film looks so cute.

Pretty much anyone who knows me, knows how much I love The Lord of the Rings. I have watched the extended edition films over and over again. I’ve also had the books for a good ten years, my copies look slightly battered now. I was lucky enough to get The Art of Lord of the Rings for Christmas and it was my favourite present.

As you can it is in this gorgeously designed black hard cover. The cover actually has the artwork of The Return of the Kind book. I’m really happy about this as I have those covers for my books so they match. Although my books are at my mums house instead of with me near my dads.

The book itself is also hardback. It’s just so simplistically beautiful as a book. I just love hardback books. If I could have an library with old leather bound books, I would. Just imagine hundreds of books in blacks, golds, greens and reds.

Unfortunately, most of the artwork is sketches and not very colourful. But this Hobbiton drawing and the Lothlorien one below are coloured.  The Hobbiton drawing is also one of the most detailed images. I really loved it, the colours made it look happy and cheerful which is very similar to how it’s shown in the book.

I especially love Lothlorien because there’s a soft glow to it. It just makes me think of the elves, which is perfect really.

Now this is Helm’s Deep, and this is where it gets weird. The film has made it look very different I think. A lot of the drawings I could recognise, like Hobbiton, but I couldn’t for this one.

These sketches are of Orthanc in Isengard. Again very different to how they made it in the film. I like it though and you really see the progression of thought into it. I think a lot of writers dont think about these things as much as Tolkien did. Which is a shame, because this is why Middle-Earth is so deep and well written.

The map of Middle-Earth is my favourite book map. I just had to take a photo of it.

The design on the right is one I have on my copy. Tolkien had so much input into the designs, which just excites me as a reader. Plus, it’s still his design on my cover.

I really love the inscriptions so again I had to include an image.

Do you ever feel like you have nothing to watch? I always seem to sit scrolling through Netflix trying to find something new to watch, and then sometimes I just dont feel like it. I know me, and I know the shows I do like. Some are a lot easier to binge watch when you have a free day and here’s my list of go-to binge worthy shows.

Friends


If you haven’t binge watched friends on Comedy Central when you’ve been off work/school have you even lived? Friends is also the show that I revise to because I’ve seen it so much.

Gossip Girl


Sometimes, I’m not fully sure what to watch on Netflix so I revert back to rewatching Gossip Girl episodes. There’s always something you’ve forgotten on a re watch.

Pretty Little Liars


I spent so many hours rewatching PLL after the last season came out just to try and see all the clues about A.

Supernatural


With a solid 12 seasons, it’s one of the best shows to binge watch because there’s so many episodes.

Gilmore Girls


Especially with the new episodes on Netflix, Gilmore Girls is ready for a binge fest.
