Movie Musical Challenge: Chicago

For this Movie Musical Challenge I’m using the AFI’s 25 Best Musicals List to try and work my way through. The challenge is throughout the year and once watched I’ll put my thoughts up on the blog. So the eighth movie for the challenge is Chicago (2002), starring Catherine Zeta-Jones, Renée Zellweger and Richard Gere. Last year was the first time I watched this film despite having the soundtrack and knowing all the songs off by heart. And I love the soundtrack. In a way I think it is even better than the film because there are no words to get in the way and I can use my imagination. Just saying, sometimes not knowing is better than being in the know. But this film is incredible. I love the set pieces and how Roxy uses her imagination to turn everything into a stage. And despite everything she is quite good at manipulating the press. I honestly love ever song in this show but I guess the classic/favourite include: ‘All that Jazz’, ‘Cell Block Tango’ and ‘Razzle Dazzle’, but all the songs are incredibly catchy […]

Through the Letterbox: MiniMoone Box Harry Potter Unboxing

Wecolme to Through the  Letterbox. Mini Moone Box is a monthly subscription box from France.  And this was their first flat package box and was a MiniMoone Harry Potter themed. I love that the theme for this pack is based on a fandom. Meaning that you can really get some items that you can’t anywhere else and you can show your fandom love! the box: In each box you can expect: two bookmarks, a sticker, a print, a pin, a magnet and a coaster All exclusively designed by Moone Box The box is £12€  which includes world wide shipping.  I honestly thing that this is amazing value! This Month’s theme was Harry Potter, so it was kind of natural to go purchase…. the unboxing: two bookmarks – which were double sided. One depicted the original marauders map owners. The other was an ode to Gildory Lockhat – an unsung hero in the Harry Potter franchise. a sticker of the Harry Potter theme Logo a print – depicting Snape with one of his most famous sayings… a pin depicting the deathly hallows a magnet depicting […]
