Okay so that was a big statement… Perhaps these aren’t all the BEST soundtracks but they are some of my favourite soundtracks from movies. From musicals to just great films here is a list of my favourite. (Not including Disney or other children’s movies because that could take me ALL day…)
Hugh Jackman has done it again…
It was only a few months ago that I watched Les Misérables for the first time (I know, very late to the party), I was blown away by Jackman, and I was delighted to see him singing in a musical again which has been directed by Michael Gracey. Continue reading “The Greatest Showman – Review”
If you ever want to see something that is funny, heartbreaking and magical, you need to see this show. Continue reading “A night out at The Christmasaurus Live”
On the 9th of December the Royal Albert Hall played host to the Philharmonia Orchestra
with Disney in Concert: Beauty and the Beast.
It was breathtaking. From the minute the orchestra filled the stage for the European premiere of the film as a live concert experience the audience was transfixed on them.
The Philharmonia were skilfully conducted by David Firman and were joined on stage by the English Chamber Choir.
Hearing the live orchestra play the introduction music for Beauty and the Beast truly lived up to the magic of Disney.
The original singing and talking parts of the film were kept but the backing to it and the songs were performed live by the orchestra. Including the most popular ones ‘Beauty and the Beast’ and ‘Be Our Guest’.
The whole night was split in two with an interval at the perfect point in the film and it gave the night a more theatrical feel to it.
To the end of the show the Philharmonia Orchestra accompanied the final track of the film, ‘How Does a Moment Last Forever’ sung by the ever talented Celine Dion, while the end slides were rolling.
It was a magical night and I can only hope that the Royal Albert Hall will continue to do these more diverse nights in their upcoming events calendar.
I’m a big lover of all things festive and film companies clearly are too, I’ve taken it upon myself to watch lots of Christmas films (I know it’s a difficult thing for me to do…), I have found the top 10 worst Christmas films (dare I say it?) in the world!
10. Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever
Seriously this should have been left as a meme…
9. I’ll be Home for Christmas
Just watch the trailer…
8. Christmas with the Kranks
This will probably be an unpopular opinion, but I was not a fan.
7. Home Alone 2, 3 & 4
Way to ruin the classics 😦
6. Jingle All The Way
Thoughts any one?
5. Fred Claus
Vince Vaughn really didn’t help this one be any better…
4. Jack Frost
I watched part of this last year and haven’t been able to finish it 😦
3. The Nutcracker
Macaulay Culkin was better in the OG Home Alone to be honest.
2. Disney’s A Christmas Carol
Lovely animation and all, but can you really beat The Muppets Christmas Carol? (okay slightly biased opinion but let me know what you think down below!)
1. Silent Night, Deadly Night
Christmas is a happy time, not a time for horror movies! (I’m a big wimp okay?)
