Christmas shopping can be a nightmare! I’m just about finished but trying to get those last few bits for everyone can be a huge stress- especially for the women!
Are you still looking for that perfect Christmas gift for the lovely ladies in your life? I don’t think I’ve ever met a female who doesn’t like to curl up and watch a good film. So why not give the gift of film? With just two weeks to go, have a look at these fantastic DVD’s from Warner Bros; (Oh, there’s a giveaway at the end too!)
Me Before You
Ahhh, I’ve read the book but haven’t actually seen the film yet. If it’s anything like the book you’ll totally need the tissues out for this one! I wouldn’t mind receiving this for Christmas!
“Thea Sharrock directs this adaptation of the novel by Jojo Moyes. Emilia Clarke stars as Louisa ‘Lou’ Clark, a quirky, cheerful waitress who suffers a crisis when she loses her job. Struggling to find a position in her area of expertise, Lou reluctantly applies for a job as a carer for a wheelchair-bound man called Will (Sam Claflin). After a motorbike accident left him paralysed, Will has found daily tasks difficut and often wonders why he tries to carry on, but when Lou enters his life, both lost souls find common ground and help each other see the light at the end of the tunnel. The cast also includes Jenna-Louise Coleman, Charles Dance, Matthew Lewis and Janet McTeer.”
I went to the Cinema with my sister to see this one and absolutely LOVED it! I love all films with Anne Hathaway and with the help of Robert DeNiro this film will make you laugh out loud and quite possibly make you shed a tear- but just a little one! I would happily add this one to my DVD collection to watch again and again.
“When Ben Whittaker (De Niro), a 70-year-old widower, becomes bored with retired life he decides to return to work, seeking an internship at an online fashion company, owned by Jules Ostin (Hathaway), that runs a senior intern programme. Ben gets the position and as he adjusts to his new surroundings he makes a good impression on his new boss with whom he forms an unlikely friendship.”
In The Heart Of The Sea
This isn’t one I’ve seen or read the book for but OMG I want to watch it so badly! So many people have recommended it to me- I’d love to receive this one!
“Ron Howard directs this action adventure based on a true story which is recounted in Nathaniel Philbrick’s book and was the inspiration for Herman Melville’s ‘Moby Dick’. In 1820 Captain George Pollard, Jr. (Benjamin Walker) leads a crew, including First Mate Owen Chase (Chris Hemsworth), Second Mate Matthew Joy (Cillian Murphy) and cabin boy Thomas Nickerson (Tom Holland), on a whaling voyage aboard the Essex. While hunting the men are attacked by a huge male sperm whale and find themselves shipwrecked and stranded at sea. They attempt to make it to dry land but will any of them survive? The film also stars Brendan Gleeson, Michelle Fairley, Charlotte Riley and Ben Whishaw as Herman Melville.”
Wizard of Oz
Now this is a classic everyone will love- you can’t go wrong! I don’t have this in my DVD collection and I do love a musical so I wouldn’t complain if I received this for Christmas!
“Classic musical adaptation of the L. Frank Baum novel starring Judy Garland, Ray Bolger, Bert Lahr and Jack Haley. A tornado whisks Dorothy (Garland) and her house from Kansas to Munchkin City, squashing the Wicked Witch of the East upon landing. The Wicked Witch of the West (Margaret Hamilton) vows revenge, while Dorothy sets off on the yellow brick road to see the Wizard of Oz (Frank Morgan), hoping he can tell her how to get home. On the way she makes friends with a scarecrow (Bolger), a tin man (Haley) and a cowardly lion (Lahr) – all of whom have specific reasons for wanting to meet the magical Wizard. With the Wicked Witch out to get her, will Dorothy ever get home again?”
How To Be Single
Dakota Johnson, Rebel Wilson, Alison Brie and Leslie Mann- with that line up you just know that this is going to be one hilarious film! My sister went to see this without me, which I’m not at all bitter about. Okay, maybe a little. She should probably buy this for me to make it up to me, yeah?
“Dakota Johnson and Rebel Wilson star in this romantic comedy based on the novel by Liz Tuccillo. The film follows a group of singletons, including Alice (Johnson) and Robin (Wilson), in New York City as they each learn how to make the most of their status.”
Hopefully that’s provided you with some inspiration- what woman wouldn’t want all of these films to have a DVD binge night?! I know I certainly would!
