Since I was a little girl, I have always loved fairy tales. I will never forget the times when I was ill, lying in bed while my dad or mum were reading me some lovely stories to cheer me up and to keep me in bed to get better. It was a fantastic way to get my imagination going wild.
Back then we did not have DVD players yet, and the only way to watch my favourite movies was to wait for the to be shown on TV. As at that time I was living in the communist Czechoslovakia, Christmas was the best time to see all my princess movies, and love remembering the excitement that filled the house when all children were waiting for their fairy tales to be on TV.
I think it is a shame a bit that children these days will never have the same as they are used to having all their movies on DVDs or downloaded on a computer. They can watch them anytime parents allow, and it’s just not the same. On the other hand, we cannot stop the technology going forward.
When I see my little Olivia playing games or watching movies on my iPhone, I have to laugh. At her age there were no smartphones at all, not even mobile phones!
One thing that has stayed is luckily going to the cinema. Even as a little girl I used to take it as a special treat as it was expensive, and it still is, but it also usually is worth the money.Ã‚Â I love taking both my girls, and lately we have been very lucky and attended some movie premieres too.
We all love fairy tales, and love seeing the remakes of animated classics.Ã‚Â One of my old time favourites is Cinderella, and cannot wait for the release of the latest Cinderella remake. Did you know you can watch CinderellaÃ‚Â at Cineworld from 27th March? Cannot wait my girls, and really hope it’s going to be as good as the movie critics have been saying so far!
“After her father unexpectedly dies, young Ella (Lily James) finds herself at the mercy of her cruel stepmother (Cate Blanchett) and stepsisters, who reduce her to scullery maid. Despite her circumstances, she refuses to despair. An invitation to a palace ball gives Ella hope that she might reunite with the dashing stranger (Richard Madden) she met in the woods, but her stepmother prevents her from going. Help arrives in the form of a kindly beggar woman who has a magic touch for ordinary things.” Credit @IMDb
