Daily Photo – Friday 4th September 2015 – Gatsby Dancers

I recently won a competition from a local publication, to attend a showing of the original The Great Gatsby at a local cinema.

Whilst not my go to movie style of choice, for me it falls in the category or classics I’ve never seen but probably should.

So tonight, we attended said showing ….. and were very pleasantly surprised to see that a dance group had been organised to do some film appropriate dancing in the seating area outside the cinema screen.

And as for the film….not sure I’d watch it again…..but oh such beautiful shirts 😉

Daily Photo – Wednesday 5th August 2015 – Mission Impossible

After work today, I went to what has become a pretty regular weekly habit, and joined a group of people to watch a movie at the cinema.

You may wonder how I managed to find a group of people who watch movies…..without stalking the cinema foyer on a regular basis that is.

I found this particular group via a website called meetup.com

It is actually available in places all around the world (check it out for where you live or work), but here in Brisbane it is massive. With groups doing pretty much anything you can think of, and open to anyone joining them doing it. From social groups to professional groups, put in a search term, and there’s usually a group for it. A brilliant way to meet new people and try new things.

Oh, and the movie tonight was the latest in the Mission Impossible franchise. And it ties in quite nicely, because apparently it’s an impossible mission for me to remember to take a picture every day!!!!

Movie suggestions

I like watching movies. Always have.

My first cinema memory? – E.T.
My favourite movie of all time? – Rocky 2.
Favourite genre? – Action Movies, with comedy a close second.
Least favourite genre? – Horrors, they give me nightmares!

I’ve seen lots of movies, but there are so many more to see. What would you recommend?

I’ll add recommendations I receive to this list…and maybe one day get round to watching them all!

Having recently moved to Australia from the UK, my movie club buddies have given me a list of classic Aussie films to bring me up to speed. I’ll list them below, to remind me what to look out for when I next look to borrow a DVD from the local library.
