Review of Starred Up

On Thursday 29th January, I went to watch 'Starred Up' at Signal Films. As someone who has a high interest in crime and the prison system, I was really looking forward to seeing ths film.  From the opening scene where you see the main character 'Eric Love' being admitted into the prison, you feel the coldness, harshness by the setting of the scene. The film was filmed at the former HM Prison Crumlin Road in Belfast although it wasn't actually set there in Ireland. This makes the viewer feel like they're experiencing what Eric is going through and as it shot at his eye level, it's giving you an idea of what he may be thinking.  I liked how they portrayed the relationships between the character for example; Eric and his father, Nev Love who is high up in the notarity of the inmates. There's Eric and Oliver, the group therapist. Then Eric against the prison officers/governor. As it is male orientated, you can expect violence, and survival tactics but I enjoy…

A little from my heart to yours...

Hey! Welcome to the year 2015! Hope the year is treating you all well so far... This post may seem a little disjointed and perhaps a bit of ramble but I hope you can make sense of it, I'm speaking from the heart.  While most people were thinking of new year's resolutions and simply focusing on enjoying the New Year's Eve celebrations, there was me with the aim of finding true happiness and to have fun as well as being in as good health as possible. The last few years haven't really been that great for me due to health problems and changes in my life although there has been some amazing highlights to totally not wipe the few years off. You may ask what the highlights were so here they are; 
Seeing Blue, and the Backstreet Boys (also cannot forget meeting the Boys) Family celebrations; birthdays, weddings/anniversaries and births Raising money for 'Ehlers-Danlos Support UK' charity Starting my raising awareness campaign for EDS Meeting a few new people
