Blogmas Day 18: My favourite lyrics from Encanto :)

Blogmas Day 18: My favourite lyrics from Encanto :)

As many of you will know I am a big Lin Manuel Miranda fan and one of his newest projects is the Disney film Encanto which is coming out on Disney+ on Christmas Eve so I thought that I would write a list of some of my favourite lyrics πŸ™‚

  • A rhythm of its own design, This is my family, A perfect constellation, So many stars and everybody gets to shine- The Family Madrigal
  • MyΒ primo Camilo won’t stop until he makes you smile today, My cousin Dolores can hear this whole chorus a mile away- The Family Madrigal
  • Always walking alone, Always wanting for more, Like I’m still at that door longing to shine, Like all of you shine- Waiting On a Miracle
  • Under the surface, Was Hercules ever like “Yo, I don’t wanna fight Cerberus”?- Surface Pressure
  • But wait, If I could shake the crushing weight of expectations, Would that free some room up for joy, Or relaxation, or simple pleasure?, Instead we measure this growing pressure- Surface Pressure
  • grew to live in fear of Bruno stuttering or stumbling, I can always hear him sort of muttering and mumbling, I associate him with the sound of falling sand- We Don’t Talk about Bruno
  • When he calls your name it all fades to black, Yeah, he sees your dreams and feasts on your screams- We Don’t Talk About Bruno
  • It’s not symmetrical or perfect, But it’s beautiful and it’s mine- What else can I do?
  • What could I do if I just grew what I was feeling in the moment?, What could I do if I just knew it didn’t need to be perfect? It just needed to be? And they let me be?- What Else Can I do
  • The miracle is not some magic that you’ve got, The miracle is you, not some gift, just you- All of You
  • And I wanted you to know that your bro loves you so, Let it in, let it out, let it rain, let it snow, let it go- All of You
  • We have no gifts, but we are many, And we’ll do anything for you, It’s a dream when we work as a team- All of You

Let me know if you have seen the film Encanto and if so which song is your favourite πŸ™‚

Blogmas Day 13: 2021 Christmas Movies

Blogmas Day 13: 2021 Christmas Movies

I have written many posts about some of my favourite Christmas movies but every year there are new ones that come out that I love so pretty much every year I will write an update post πŸ™‚

  • LoveHard: Lovehard is a modern day Christmas romance movie about a girl who meets her seemingly perfect guy however when she travels to meet him she finds out she has been catfished! Its a very funny film with lots of very awkward near-misses and a very satisfying cute ending and I am a big fan of Nina Dobrev so it was very cool to see her in a Christmas movie πŸ™‚
  • The Happiest Season: This is such a cute movie!! It has some amazing music, a very adorable plot and a great cast including Kristen Stewart, Dan Levy and Mackenzie Davis πŸ™‚ The story follows Kristen Stewarts character when she travels with her girlfriend to her parents house for the holidays and prepares to propose only to find out that her girlfriend has yet to come out to her parents!
  • The Princess Switch 3: Romancing the Star: This is the third movie in the Princess Switch series and it is just as cheesy and amazing as ever πŸ™‚ I am a big fan of Vanessa Hudgens and Christmas movies so combining the two is always going to be a win in my book πŸ™‚ This series includes all of the classic cheesy tropes including people switching over, cute dates, princes and princesses and a Christmas heist- whats not to love!! πŸ™‚
  • A Boy Called Christmas- This is the newest Christmas film from Sky Cinema and it is the story of how Christmas first started and I actually watched this movie with my parents on one of our movie nights and I always love a Christmas movie and especially ones that tell the story of how Christmas originally started πŸ™‚
  • Single all the way- This is a new Netflix Rom-Com which is so so cute! The story follows Peter who gets tired of his family always asking about his relationship status so pretends to date his best friend Nick however he ends up going on a blind date with someone else who seems absolutely perfect and its just a very cute, easy watch πŸ™‚

Let me know in the comments if you have any favourite Christmas movies I haven’t mentioned πŸ™‚

Would you rather- Marvel Edition :)

Would you rather- Marvel Edition :)

I have done similar posts to this with a Disney Would You Rather and a Christmas Would You Rather so I thought today I would do a Marvel Would You Rather πŸ™‚

  1. Would you rather be born with powers or get powers later in life? I think I would rather get powers later in life because then I would be mature enough to use them for the greater good and I would appreciate them more πŸ™‚
  2. Would you rather have a suit designed by Tony Stark or Shuri? I think definitely Shuri- she is such a badass and the suit she designs for Black Panther is absolutely AMAZING!
  3. Would you rather be an Avenger or a Guardian? Being a Guardian seems like so much fun!
  4. Of the Six infinity stones which would you rather have? I think I would rather have the space stone because I could just teleport to different planets πŸ™‚
  5. Of everyone killed by Thanos who would you rather save? ……. Loki……… the thing is everyone who was killed in the snap was bought back anyway and technically Nat and Iron Man weren’t killed by Thanos because they sacrificed themselves so I wouldn’t be able to save them.
  6. Would you rather fly on Ant Mans Ant friend or using Falcons wings? Falcons wings! It would be so much fun
  7. Would you rather be able to control minds like Wanda or control feelings like Mantis? I think I would rather be able to control minds because with that you could also control feelings by what you are putting in their mind also Wanda is very very powerful so if I had even a quarter of her powers it would be pretty cool πŸ™‚
  8. Would you rather hang out with Baby Groot or Teenage Groot? Baby groot- he’s so cute!!
  9. Would you rather run like Quicksilver or shrink and fly like Wasp? I think I’d rather be able to fly because then I could fly to different countries and save on airplane tickets πŸ™‚
  10. Would you rather wield Thor’s Mjolnir or Stormbreaker? I feel like wielding Mjolnir has such significance that I would want to wield Mjolnir but it depends whether I was worthy :p

Let me know in the comments your answers to these would you rather’s πŸ™‚

Ranking Dreamworks Movies :)

Ranking Dreamworks Movies :)

In May 2020 I went through and ranked all of the Pixar movies according to the God Tier, Top Tier, Mid Tier and Awful Tier rating system and I actually really enjoyed doing it and after watching a few Dreamworks films over the weekend I thought that I would go through some of the Dreamworks movies and rank them however this is only my opinion ❀

God Tier: The Prince of Egypt, The Road to El Dorado, Shrek, Shrek 2, Shark Tale, Madagascar, Kung Fu Panda, How to Train Your Dragon, Rise of the Guardians, How to Train Your Dragon 2, Trolls, How to Train Your Dragon: The hidden world

Top Tier: Antz, Chicken Run, Over the Hedge, Flushed Away, Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa, Shrek Forever After, Megamind,

Mid Tier: Shrek the Third, Bee Movie, Monsters V.S. Aliens, Kung Fu Panda 2, Madagascar 3: Europes Most Wanted, Kung Fu Panda 3, The Croods, Home, Boss Baby, Abominable

Awful Tier:

There are a few movies that I haven’t ranked because I have never seen them so it doesn’t feel fair to rank them such as: Spirit, Sinbad, Turbo, Trolls World Tour, Puss in Boots, Penguins of Madagascar and Peabody and Sherman.

Let me know in the comments what your favourite Dreamworks movie is πŸ™‚

Marvel Cinematic Universe Tag :)

Marvel Cinematic Universe Tag :)

I think that because there haven’t been any new Marvel movies coming out recently due to the Black Widow movie being postponed I have sort of become out of touch with my love of Marvel however Wandavision on Disney + has really reignited my love for all things Marvel so I thought I would start writing some Marvel content again starting with a Marvel tag which I believe was created by Christine Smith

  • How were you introduced into the MCU fandom?- I was introduced to the Marvel fandom I think by my parents as we watched I think the first two Thor movies and the first Captain America and Avengers during family movie nights however I didn’t start to really LOVE Marvel until I went to see Black Panther during my third year of university with two of my friends which then inspired me to binge watch most of the other movies before Infinity War came out and we went to see it once all of our exams had finished πŸ™‚
  • What’s your favorite Marvel film? I think the Marvel movies I always go back to would be either the Guardians or Captain America Civil War πŸ™‚
  • Top favorite Marvel character? Ooooo I would have to say Spiderman if I had to pick just one however I am Team Iron Man πŸ™‚
  • If you were transported into the MCU and had to trade places with one of the superheroes, who would you choose? I think I would have to pick Wanda as she is just such a Badass!
  • What are some of your favorite quotes from the films? SOO MANY!!
  • Which crew would you want to be part of the most: Avengers, Guardians of the Galaxy, or Revengers? I would have to say the Guardians πŸ™‚
  • Favorite and least favorite ship? Favourite: Wanda and Vision Least Favourite: Steve and Sharon Carter probably
  • Favorite and least favorite villain? Favourite villain: LOKI- I absolutely love Loki as a character and his storyline is so interesting πŸ™‚ Least Favourite Villain: Whiplash from Iron Man 2 potentially? Theres a few villains that I think are just a bit meh but he’s the one that stuck out in my mind
  • Unpopular MCU opinion? I don’t think I have any?
  • What’s your favorite Stan Lee cameo scene?

Let me know in the comments your answers to these questions πŸ™‚

5 TV Shows I have been watching during Lockdown 3 :)

5 TV Shows I have been watching during Lockdown 3 :)

If you can’t already tell from my blog I watch a lot of TV shows in my spare time and especially during lockdown have been going through quite a few! I have already written quite a few posts similar to this one about some of my favourite shows which can be found here, here, here, here and here but I thought that I would update the list πŸ™‚

  1. How to Get Away with Murder: I started watching this show with my Mum actually and a running joke in our family is to walk in while my mums watching a tv show and ask who has been murdered because most of her shows are “who done it” type shows so she had been recommended this show because of that and I decided to watch it with her and I absolutely loved it! If you like suspenseful/dramas then you will absolutely love it! My favourite two characters were Connor and Oliver πŸ™‚

2. Bridgeton: I first heard about Bridgeton on TikTok so decided that I would have to watch it to find out what all of the hype was about and OMG I LOVED IT! I always love a historical drama and this was no different and I’m so excited for season 2! πŸ™‚ I think my favourite two characters have to be Eloise Bridgeton and Penelope Featherington πŸ™‚

3. Umbrella Academy: I started watching Umbrella Academy with my friend Barghavi a few weeks ago and OMG ITS SOOO GOOD! I love the concept and the characters are absolutely AMAZING! I think my favourite characters are Ben and Klaus as their brotherly relationship is so cute and I love the journey that they go on πŸ™‚

4. Julie and the Phantoms: I am such a big fan of this show OMG! I usually love most of Kenny Ortegas stuff and also love a musical tv show so this was right up my alley πŸ™‚ I won’t talk too much about this show because I have a Julie and the Phantoms tag coming out on Friday πŸ™‚

5. Death in Paradise: My two friends Hannah and Anna told me to watch this show so many times and I finally got around to it a while ago and was then reminded of my love for the show recently because Season 13 is currently being shown πŸ™‚ *Spoiler alert* I love that the Detectives change semi-regularly because it changes the dynamic of the show with the different relationships and I have also gotten really good at estimating how the murder is going to go πŸ™‚

Let me know in the comments if you have seen any of these shows and if you have any shows you would recommend πŸ™‚
