It’s Movie-time!

After a lovely day out at my Nain’s we spent Valentine’s evening with these lovely stuff! However I fell asleep before the film finished which wasn’t good!

So to make it up to the hubby I have booked last Tuesday off and booked us in to see 3 films at our local Cineworld!

Star Wars: The Force Awakens

First up was Star Wars. We had been to see it before and I wasn’t fussed but hubby wanted to see it again. I didn’t mind – it’s not a bad film I just not a huge fan of the franchise! Although I will admit I do like Rey and Finn… which are the main characters so enjoyable enough.

After that it was around 2.15pm when we came out so we headed to Pizza Hut to catch the buffet. Never been to the buffet because I’m always at work. It was nice!

Dad’s Army

Next film was Dad’s Army. If you’ve never seen/heard of Dad’s Army then it was a British sitcom in the 1970s about the Home Guard during the war. The film was an adaptation of the British sitcom and so we had new actors portraying classic characters. They had a difficult job I must admit because no-one can ever beat the originals. Toby Jones as Mainwaring was great but Michael Gambon as Godfrey was spot on. I wasn’t watching Michael Gambon as Godfrey I was watching Godfrey! Like I say, spot on!

(Something I’ve found out since is that the original Godfrey (Arnold Ridley) was Daisy Ridley’s great-uncle! What a coincidence!)


This was the main event! Everyone who had seen it had told me it was fantastic and well worth seeing… and I’m not going to argue with them! It is one of the best films I’ve seen in a long time… best one since Guardians of the Galaxy perhaps.

Ryan Reynolds reprises his role as Wade Wilson/Deadpool but thankfully not the same one as in X Men Origins: Wolverine where he had his mouth shown shut. And honestly if his mouth had been sown shut then this film wouldn’t have been half as entertaining!

I knew this film was going to be violent after reading about someone who wanted to take their kids to see it but complained about the violence…. erm yeah it is most definitely not a kids film! There is definitely adult themes going on in this film.

I’m not going to do a synopsis or anything because I don’t want to give out any spoilers but all I’ll say is… go see it! If you’re not convinced then honestly, just go see it for Ryan Reynolds’ humour (and buff body – never noticed it before but mm yes!).

Have you seen these films? Do they appeal to you? What was the last film you saw at the cinema?

    Deadpool ftw! Honestly, this was the film that deadpool fans were all waiting for – and it finally did the character justice.

    I’m a big star wars nut, but I wasn’t feeling this one. Although, it was a huge improvement on the prequels I don’t think they can ever recapture the magic that the originals have.

    Deadpool gave me a reason to believe and I LOVED it. Any fears I had going in were gone the moment the movie started. The credits were genius! Glad you saw awesome movies!

    I want to go to Star Wars and it’s unlikely I will have the time this week or next week. But I will see it someday :))

    I never really go to cinema now. OH goes & I watch the kids. But he likes cinema more than me. I prefer watching films at home as don’t like all the other people and the adverts & trailers! I don’t like Star Wars & only ever seen the original films many years ago. OH saw Force Awakens recently, though. Twice. Never heard of Deadpool. Been wondering about Dad’s Army – that would be my choice! #KCACOLS

    I have heard mixed reviews about Deadpool so I’m not sure – I do like Ryan Reynolds though! I loved Star Wars – Fin is the best 🙂

    Oh wow, 3 movies! What a marathon!! I don’t have the time to go and see one movie lately!! Lol I absolutely love movies and especially going to the cinema. My mum loves watching movies she watches every single movie is out there, lol. So when I was little I remembered my mum taking me to watch 3 movies on a Saturday afternoon. Those were for me the best days of my life. I still can remember them like if they were yesterday. I miss that a lot!! It is a shame I can’t do that anymore, especially because my mum is miles away from me in Peru. 🙁 I haven’t seen any of those movies before. My hubby is fun of Star Wars but I’m not so much so he went and watched it on his own. I’m now intrigue about Deadpool. I’ll make a note of it. I’m glad to hear that you had a great time!! Thanks so much for sharing this at #KCACOLS. I’m so happy to have you for the first time. I hope that you like it and I would love to see you again on Sunday! 🙂 x
