Very odd that this film only just came out in the US but anyhow, I saw this film last week in 3D and thought I’d share my thoughts.

Exciting Announcement

No guys, unfortunately I can’t announce that I’m about to marry the beautiful human pictured above, BUT I still have some exciting news which I’m super pumped to be sharing with everyone. If you’ve read my TV Schedule post or follow me on Twitter, you’ll know that I am pretty obsessed with the TV show Outlander. In order to not bombard you all with constant Outlander posts, I decided it would be best to channel that passion to somewhere more appropriate, so it is with great excitement that I can now announce that I am now a contributor to the awesomely fun website, Fangirlish.

It was quite funny and quite enjoyable. My favourite part was definitely going through the forest of weeping angels- scary as hell, but also a lot of fun! That takes about 15-20 minutes (you’re not allowed to film or take photos, so you’ll just have to go by my word). The second part is where you get to have a stroll around the Doctor Who exhibitions, where there is actual set, props and costumes that you can look at, which is also super cool. Overall I thoroughly enjoyed …
