Sorry for the radio silence… Got a (rather boring) job for the Summer which, unfortunately, takes up most of my time! 😦 I won’t be posting much… But here’s something to make you laugh!

Scary Movie 5/Jack & The Giant Slayer Reviews…

So… Last week, I took myself to the cinema. It was my last week in London for the Summer so I thought, why not?! The first film I saw was “Scary Movie 5”. Bloody brilliant! It’s not to everyone’s taste (obviously), but I don’t know anyone who wouldn’t want to see Lindsay Lohan and Charlie Sheen make a sex tape at the beginning of a film! Very glad to see some of the original Scary Movie cast in it too! Most film series would often replace their entire cast by the fifth film… Still undecided on the use of a plastic baby (hopefully no spoiler there…), but if you haven’t seen it already go see it! DO IT!!!

“Jack & The Giant Slayer” on the other hand… It was your typical hero/romance film. I don’t really buy into that so much. More of a “Reservoir Dogs” type of girl! Though its always fun to mock those silly films (hence the love of “Scary Movie”)… BUT! It did have one or two redeeming features… Ewan McGregor and Nicolas Hoult… HAH 😛
