Monthly Movie Reviews by Zach - January 2018

My boyfriend, Zach, loves going to the cinema and recently he's been posting his mini movie reviews onto Facebook. 
I love the fact that he loves writing them - so I'm dedicating a monthly post on my Blog to his reviews! 

The Greatest Showman
After much resistance I finally gave in to Kirsty begging me to go see this film. 
The fact she had seen it 3 times in 6 days should've been enough to tell me it's awesome! 
She was right, it's AMAZING! I don't even like musicals that much... I'd happily admit it's one of the most enjoyable films I have seen in years, if you like Musicals ITS A MUST. If you like films also go see it.. 
Feel Good 
Great Songs 
Good Storyline 


Insidious - The Last Key 
6/10 (i'm been generous) 
As a fan of the insidious franchise, I expected this to deliver real scares like the first 3, unfortunately all I experienced were a few jumpy moments... 
Weak plot and a bit repetitive, the fact they left it open at the end indicates that a 5th film will be out this worries me. 
If they continue like they are it'll end up been the quality of a straight to DVD Horror!
If you like the insidious franchise go see it/have a cineworld unlimited card go aswell
But WOULD NOT Waste £10.50 going to see it this, you will walk out dissapointed and £10.50 worse off
Weaker than the previous 3
That lil key finger thing was pretty scary though

The Commuter

Unlimited screening of 'The Commuter' this evening with Kirsty
Uk Release date 19th Jan 
So another action thriller staring Liam Neeson SHOCK!
If you have seen 'Non Stop' the film on the plane, it's got a little bit of a feel of that.. but this is on a Train not a Plane.
Is it as good as Non Stop? Probably not, but still entertaining.
Enjoyable if you are into an easy watching thriller or just like Liam neeson action films... 
A Whodunit Plot
Tense Moments 
Fight Scenes 
Liam Neeson been an overall badass as always 

It's not gonna blow you away, pretty easy to follow, but defo worth a trip to the cinema to see it !

12 Strong
So I have waited for this film to be released a couple of months now, so last night was very excited to see it! 
Was I expecting Better things?! 
Yes unfortunately I was

Firstly I love a good war film and after seeing Hacksaw Ridge Last year and it been my joint favourite film of 2017 I think I set the bar too high... 
Not a patch on hacksaw ridge... 
Slow Burner
Few Tense Fight Scenes
Got Chris Hemsworth In Which Is A Bonus 
If you like a basic storyline with fight scenes and there's nothing else on give it a try! 
As much as it pains me to say it... You won't walk out thinking that was an amazing film... So unfortunately I won't be saying GO SEE THIS FILM...


Me and Kirsty love a good horror, after seeing a lot of trailers and Helen Mirren on Graham Norton, We were very excited! For it's release yesterday 
A Horror Film with an Oscar winner and multiple Nominee ?! It had to be seen! 
I'm happy to be writing a good review of a horror, I feel January was a bit of a negative month of average film reviews.
For once a great storyline in a horror, kept you on the edge of your seat! 100% worth going to see if you love horror tbf even if you like a good ol ghost story.
Good Character Development

Lots of love.
Kirsty (well.... Zach!)

My 2017 Highlights and 2018 Goals

Now that's out of the way, how have you been? How was your 2017? It feels like it's been forever since I posted... It's only fitting that my first post of 2018 is about 2017... right? 

I met the Impractical Jokers
I started off the year travelling the country with Laura, seeing 3 Impractical Jokers shows. Now, I know that sounds crazy but when the tickets got released we got a bit 'booking happy' and after trying our hardest to get Meet and Greet, we finally succeeded. 
This was honestly the best way I could have started the year. I had waited months and months and it was SO worth the wait. 
I wrote a whole blog post about it (and i definitely don't randomly read it and look back at the photos.. not at all...)

Perfect Prints with Photowall

Have you ever taken a photo that has just captured a memory perfectly? A photo that makes you smile every time you look at it? 

One of my all time favourite memories is spending the day in Central Park with my boyfriend, Zach. The weather was beautiful (for an autumn November day!) and I couldn’t have been happier being in my favourite place in the world with my favourite person. 

Rather than just have the photo as my Facebook profile picture - the lovely people over at Photowall gave me the opportunity to have it printed onto a canvas (so that I can lay in bed staring up at it, not at all crying that I’m no longer in New York…) 

Photowall will print any photo you like… any size… in amazing quality on a Canvas!
(I must admit - I'm not very good with sizes and when this came... wow, it's huge! But it will look amazing in our bedroom when we 'eventually' move in together!)

If the idea of staring at a huge canvas of your face doesn’t appeal to you, they have categories that you can Search in and choose from a ‘ready made’ design! 
Just type in your favourite City, your favourite Animal, anything… they will most likely have a canvas available that you will fall in love with. 

I absolutely love the landscape designs and the nature shots are just beautiful!

The canvas was really easy to put together… (I say this, but my Mum’s partner actually put it together for me whilst I sat and ate biscuits.) 

The one thing I will say is that the communication from placing the order to the delivery of the order is brilliant. 
There is nothing worse than placing an order and there is an error (for instance, I didn’t put the correct sizing in) and having a company just leave it… or not reply for days. 
Photowall were super fast at responding and I had a way to track my parcel almost instantly. I knew exactly where it was and how long it would take to get to me. 
 A* delivery.

I know you’ve all just scrolled down to the bottom here to get your hands on a discount code - and I have one for you! 
20% off anything on the website! Use the code - pwkirstytttcampaign2017 
The code is valid until 13th January - plenty of time to get your Christmas presents bought... or just a New Year present for yourself!

Have you ever used PhotoWall before? I’d love to hear about your experiences! 

Lots of love.
