'Films To See' List

"The only people that interest me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones that never yawn or say a commonplace thing but burn, burn, burn like roman candles across the night"
I read Jack Kerouac's novel On The Road this summer just so I could have my own interpretation before the film arrives. As a a defining work of the Beat generation, it follows the story of Sal Paradise and Dean Moriarty as they travel across America looking for 'it', who are inspired by everything they come across. With Kristen Stewart, Sam Riley and Garret Hedlund starring, I've got a feeling that this will be a good 'un.

"I'm a Bondurant...we don't  lay down for nobody."
Shia LaBefouf and Tom Hardy are in this film. Need I say more? Set in Franklin, Virginia during the era of the Great Depression, Lawless follows the three Bondurant brothers who take pride in their gangster image. As other well dressed but terribly violent gangsters chase the outlaws, shooting, slashing and rape ensue. With a host of powerful actors, it looks like a great action movie.

"You let people think you're weak, sooner or later you're going to have to kill them"
I saw the trailer for this on my last trip to the cinema. Although it isn't my usual comedy film that I would watch, it looks like a really good, gritty film that only uses the violence when necessary as opposed to using it purely for the gore. Blake Lively plays Ophelia ("O") who has two boyfriends, who are coincidently best friends, with a successful marijuana growing empire. The film is set to hit a climax when violent Mexican drug cartels plan to partner with the two men against their will.

Good picks? What films are you excited to see?


  1. I've recently watched the newest Underworld film and it was amazing! I only really want to see Avengers and One day, I never got chance at the cinema x

  2. I'm keen to see all three of these!
    I'm not sure about Kristen Stewart's casting in On The Road but I'm hoping to be pleasantly surprised.

  6. Ooh these films sound immense. I've just seen total recall - it.was.awesome!!! I'm so psyched to see "the perks of being a wallflower", I keep rewatching the trailer over and over, I know I'll love it even before I've even seen it, I guess mostly cuz I loved the book. It's so exciting seeing things like this come to life on film :D I'll stop ranting now anywhoo, have a fab weekend lovely! x

  7. On the road looks good!

    By the way love the name and header of your blog! ;)



  8. I CANNOT wait to see these! I would add the Great Gatsby too! xx


  9. I'm pretty damn excited for On The Road to come out - I always prefer seeing Kristen Stewart in movies outside of the twilight/snow white kind of setting; she was brilliant in Adventureland and as Joan Jett in the Runaways and I don't think people give her nearly enough credit for her acting.



thankyou for taking the time to comment!
oh gosh, i get way too excited.
