My Birthday Cinema Trip

The cinema is something that me and my partner no longer get chance to go to. We have no babysitters here and so when I visited my mums this week up north, me and my partner made the most of her being able to babysit and we took 2 trips to the cinema.

Its so funny to get super excited about the cinema but I forgot how relaxing going to watch a film is. 

The first film we saw was Why Him

At first the trailer of it we watched didn't really sell the film to me too much, and I didn't think I would find it very funny. But my partner said to me it was meant to be really good and as there wasn't much other choices I agreed to go and see it. 

Im so glad I did. It was REALLY funny. I would say I was laughing most the way through the film and the end had me with tears in my eyes from laughing.

Bryan Cranston plays the role of a dad who find out his daughter is dating someone that turns out to be less than what meets most dads expectations. In fact this guy is covered in tattoo's and swears most than a guy with turrets. He also doesn't care about what comes out of his mouth and is really open and that lands him in a few situations that really don't please the dad. But these situations are super funny for us to watch as a viewer. I would 100% recommend going to see this film if you are a fan of comedies. 

The second film we went to see was Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find them.

For me and my partner this was the opposite away around. He wasn't to sure about seeing it where as I really wanted to. Ive always been a fan of Harry
Potter and I think JK Rowling is an amazing writer so I expected it to be really good. 

I wasn't disappointed and I also managed to change the mind of my partner who enjoyed it to. The story line is set way before the Harry Potter story but mentions of Hogwarts and Dumbledoor and other Harry Potter things are mentioned through out the film. But it is in no way related to Harry Potter at all. The lead character is a Ex student that was actually expelled from Hogwarts, his main interest is about all the magical Fantastic Beasts that exist. He heads to America with a suitcase. But its not just any suitcase, its actually full of these Fantastic Beasts. He accidentally swaps his case with a muggle (non magic type) and the beasts escape. He teams up with the muggle to try and capture them. At the same time there is a beast going around destroying the city and the government are also trying to capture him for having the beasts escape. Its full of action, some comedy, and best of all loads of magic.

The thing I loved about the film was that it recaptured some of the exciting new magic feelings you got when you watched the very first Harry Potter film.

Harry Potter fan or not, I would definetly recommend seeing this film.

Have you seen any of these films? What did you think?

Which would you like to see?


  1. I used to work in the cinema, back in my uni days and I'd go to the cinema as often as three times a week :) I haven't been back for three years eeeek. I do want to see Fantastic Beasts but I had to order it on my Sky box :)

  2. Gosh - You've just reminded me that we haven't been to the cinema for years! It's amazing how you can get out of the habit of doing things!

  3. Ive seen both of these and loved them x

  4. Fantastic beasts and where to find them is the one o most want to see

  5. I really want to see this film. Doubt I'll get time to though!

  6. I really want to see Why Him! It looks hilarious! I love James Franco 😍 I'm not entirely sure about the other one. It's not really my thing. I'm planning on taking my mum to see La La Land. It looks really good too! Xo

  7. Happy birthday! I've not seen either but both films sound good.

  8. Ive not seen either film. I rarely go to the cinema

  9. I can relate to not going to the cinema much unless it's to see the latest film suitable for our 3 year old e.g. Ballerina, secret life of pets or Trolls!! 😲
