Are we that old that 90’s movies are considered a throwback?! *gasps* There’s no denying it, the 90’s produced some damn good movies that are still enjoyable today! One of my favourites? Four Weddings And A Funeral, you’ll laugh, you’ll cry (a lot if you’re anything like me), you’ll just love it! The plot, you guessed it, follows a group of friends as they encounter four weddings and a funeral. It’s a must watch!
Watch If… You want a good cry, but also a few laughs. They’re also making a series that follows the same plot soon, so this will give you good insights into what to expect!

Mamma Mia is everything you want from a Musical, awesome music (thank you ABBA), a funny and slightly unbelievable plot, and a great cast!

Watch If… You finally want to know what these ABBA people your parents keep talking about actually sing. You’ll be singing along yourself in no time!

About Time is one of those movies you’ll want to watch over and over again. A seemingly normal romantic drama gets flipped on it’s head with the introduction of fantasy and time travel!
