Elvis Review

If you are heading to the cinema this weekend then Elvis is the film to watch. Baz Luhrmann, the director that gave us the iconic Moulin Rouge! (2001) and the unforgettable Great Gatsby (2013) is back with his sixth feature film: Elvis. The film chronicles the life of Rock and Roll king Elvis Presley, from the start of his career to his tragic death. With focus placed on the turbulent relationship between Elvis and his manager Colonel Tom Parker. Luhrmann, brings his artistic flare to Elvis, combining music with visual spectacle to create another brilliant piece of cinema. I was lucky enough to attend the Elvis press screening in London with my  colleague  at Future of the Force, which was an amazing  experience .  Please check out Future of the Force by Clicking here! The narrative works as a biography, not always chronological. Instead, it jumps through time, showing us things in the past that lead to the present in the same way biographical books are structured.

Disney Summer Watchlist

It's finally SUMMER!! Today is the hottest day in the UK so far, it's actually over 30c which is amazing because most of the time England is cloudy, rainy or cold and most of the time summer only lasts for like a week. Now if you have followed me for a while you will know I like a movie watchlist, so I have created a Summer watchlist for you all and guess what? All the films on the list are Disney ones. I am a massive Disney fan, and nothing makes me think of summer more than some of the films on my list. 

Last summer I went to Disneyland Paris (you can read about my trip here). When the sun and Disney magic combine, I truly think Disneyland is one of the most brilliant places on earth - summer for me is about happiness and Disney in the sun is one of my happy places. So that is what inspired me to write this list. Now I have included a mix here such as animated classics: A Bugs Life and The Little Mermaid. Summer themed original Disney Chanel Movies Camp Rock and High School Musical 2 which take me back to when I was at school and would spend all summer in the garden and watching movies. I also included Pirates of the Caribbean for those of us who dream of spending our summers on a white sand beach and fighting pirates. I spent a summer in America working at a summer camp and The Parent Trap brings back all my camp memories (Chestnut Till I Die!!!). I have included The Lion King - now it's up to you which version you can watch, the 1994 classic or the live-action 2019 version (out in UK cinemas 19/07/19), I will be watching both. (So keep an eye out for my review). 

As it's summer and summer is all about relaxing and enjoying being outside there is no timescale to this watchlist - just watch and cross off at your own pace. Make sure you save the list, print it, give it a share and let me know which movie you are watching first!!

Thank you for reading - Let me know in the comments what movies make you think of summer xx 


Also, this year I am attending my first outdoor movie screening at Leeds Castle! I am so excited and cannot wait to share my experience with you all xx
