Let's Go to the Cinema, Darling

I feel like I've been in a bit of a movie slump lately. There just hasn't been that much that has come out in theaters in recent months that I've really wanted to see. Everything is a superhero movie or a Hunger Games or a sequel to some comedy. I don't hate these movies, but they just aren't my favorites. I love a good historical drama or musical or period piece. Thankfully, there are several things hitting theaters soon that I am thrilled about!

Here's what I can't wait for:

#1. Into the Woods. 

First of all, I love Stephen Sondheim. Secondly, I love this musical. Thirdly, I played Rapunzel in this musical in the 10th grade and I had the most hideous wig in all of creation. Fourthly, this show was the setting of one of my most embarrassing moments which I like to call "The Tale of 3 Jenny's." There were 3 girls named Jenny cast in our show. One played Cinderella, one played the stepmother (I think?!) and the other one was me, Rapunzel. I was backstage and someone whisper-shouted, "Jenny, your cue!!!" and so I ran out on stage and then looked around and realized that I did not recognize this scene and everyone on stage was staring at me with a WHAT ARE YOU DOING HERE face and then I realized that I probably shouldn't be there and then I realized that they were probably talking to another Jenny. Oops. 

Anyways, this trailer looks AMAZING. I want to see it so bad!

#2. Cinderella

While we're on the subject of fairy tales.... CINDERELLA, Y'ALL. And it's directed by Kenneth Branagh so you know it will be good. And, let's face it, anything will be better than the horrible quality of Drew Barrymore's Ever After. Doesn't this look just so, so beautiful?!

It makes me squeal. Oh my goodness. 

I mean this IMAGE: Seriously.

#3. Unbroken

And now for something completely different. Louis Zamperini has an amazing story. My husband had the opportunity to hear him speak before he passed away and Grant was very much impacted by this man and all he has endured and overcome. Angelina Jolie is behind the film. Hoping she does his story justice! Such an unbelievable life this man lived....

#4. Okay so this isn't really a movie. But we're showing videos here so I'm showing this one too. It's my blog and I can do what I want to.

Can we talk about how absolutely adorable this is?! PRECIOUSNESS.

Now go back and watch that Cinderella trailer again and again. I AM SO GOING TO SEE THAT THE DAY IT COMES OUT. Hunger Games, Shmunger Games, y'all.

  1. Did you notice that the actresses that portray Daisy the kitchen maid and Lady Rose on Downton are both in the upcoming Cinderella film? That increased the film's appeal for me.
