Weekly Wrap Up 16th – 22nd March

This week was a really productive week I mean it was partly due to the fact I was on holiday but I finished two books and started to read lots of others. I  watched a lot of TV shows and started a few that I am really enjoying and raving about to my friends. I did make a dent in watching and reviewing some of the films in my DVD collection which was a bit of a nostalgia route with some. I read some magazines and finally listened to a podcast oh it has been too long.

So here is the list:

Films

The Amazing Spider-Man

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0948470/?ref_=nv_sr_srsg_0

Opinion: Ok so not my favourite Spider-Man series but I have to say it is more of a mysterious plot but not the right man in the suit in my opinion. However, I do love Gwen.

 

Father of the Bride

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0101862/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1
