For those of you not living in the UK at the moment, this top 5 may seem a little peculiar. But stick with it. For the past couple of days, Britain has been gripped by ‘the beast from the East’ as it’s been nicknamed. Bringing freezing temperatures and blizzards, it has completely crippled the nation – as it always does.
Why a world superpower like the United Kingdom ceases to function at the mere hint of the white stuff is another debate for another time, but while I’m watching it fall from outside my bedroom window, I thought I might as well look through the best snow films ever.

Read on to find which five made the cut and share your thoughts in the comments box below. Continue reading
Today, February 11th 2018, the wonderful Jennifer Aniston turns 49. On our screens since, wait for it, 1988 and her performance in Mac & Me, the American actress has been a household name, arguably from her breakthrough role as Rachel Green in the US sitcom, Friends, which ended in 2004 – I know, I can’t believe it either.

Read on to find out which are the best Jennifer Aniston movies. Continue reading

Sure, they’ve got mansions and private jets and wads and wads of cash, but before the fame, they were just like you or I.
It’s all the more surprising then that we’re constantly bombarded with stories of misdemeanours from some of the most famous people in Hollywood. Whether it’s a demanding personality or cruelty to their fans, we’re never that far away from a Hollywood bad guy. With that in mind, I’m flipping that on its head and looking at the nicest guys in Hollywood. But who has made the cut? Read on to find out. Continue reading
