  • Yesterday With Joe

    With only 1 Beatle movie to go, I thought I would ask Joe if he wanted to watch it with me. Who doesn’t love Yellow Submarine? Joe evidently, as he respectfully declined the offer. Suit yours…

  • Les Mouches (The Flies) at Bunker Theatre – theatre review – Franglais27 Tales

    This was my first visit to the Bunker Theatre, which is quietly tucked away adjacent to Menier Chocolate Factory and very intimate. The theatre is located at the further end of London Bridge past Borough Market in the direction of Borough tube station. The theatre is currently playing the Exchange Theatre production of Les Mouches by Jean-Paul Sartre and its unique selling point is that the play alternates between French and English on different weeks.

  • An Evening at The Royal Opera House with Rémy Martin – Franglais27 Tales

    I had been a member of the French cognac brand Rémy Martin’s pop up bar, La Maison Rémy Martin for a few years. So, I was pleased when a permanent residence in collaboration with Claude Bosi opened its doors in London in September 2018. Alongside this base on Fulham Road in South Kensington, Rémy Martin continued to offer its unique members’ events.

  • Vox by Christina Dalcher

    Hello Readers,As a symbol of purity and devotion to their family a woman now only has 100 words a day. Just one word over 100 and the wrist counter will send 1,000 volts through your body. Women have become an asset to be managed, a homemaker, cleaner and carer. Ideal for those who like dystopian books with a political aspect like The Handmaids Tale but with a muzzle.  However, unlike the outcome of The Handmaids Tale, you are left satisfied rather than with more questions. Well written and executed in a believable way.

  • The Last Tree – Sundance London Film Festival – Film Review – Franglais27 Tales

    Fortunately, there had not been any spoilers published about The Last Tree from the press screenings that occurred earlier in the week during the Sundance London film festival. However, from the short, positive comments that were made, the anticipation built up that this was going to be one of the must-see films of the year! There was therefore a lot of excitement from this reviewer to be watching the film at its European premiere during the Sundance London film festival!

  • The Girl in Red by Christina Henry

    Hello Readers,

    Thank you, Lydia and Titan Books, for sending me a copy of The Girl in Red by Christina Henry for free in exchange for an honest review.

    I honestly couldn’t wait to get my hand on this as I loved The Mermaid and have The Lost Boy in my TBR pile. Christina has a wonderful talent for re-imagining classic fairytales and children’s books. Christina’s feminist re-telling is as enjoyable her fantasies and are just as unpredictable.

    The Girl in Red is loosely inspired by European fairytale ‘Little Red Riding Hood’. Christina takes the tale of Little Red Riding Hood and turns it into a modern, apocalyptic story, by choosing to relocate the story to a parallel modern-day USA, where a sickness, wiped out most of the population, leaving the country without power, means of communication, or local law enforcement. Government patrols are rounding up survivors and depositing them in enforced quarantine.

  • Good Omens (Amazon Series Review)

    Hello Readers,Today we are going to be looking at the Amazon series Good Omens. On Wednesday I reviewed the book if you’re looking for the story behind the series here’s a link. If you’ve followed my blog for a while you know I love Sir Terry Pratchett’s work. I also have a lot of love for Neil Gaiman I just don’t think I am as vocal about it (sorry Neil).  I’ve tried to do this without spoilers.

    Little fangirl and then I will get down to business David Tennant and Michael Sheen! I will be honest I didn’t need anything more. I was so worried when I saw that Good Omens was going to be adapted to screen and then a little more so with cast announcements. Not only had two of my favourite authors collaborated two of my favourite actors were going to star in it. Surely nothing can live up to that much hype, can it… brain give up it was perfect for me. Oh, and to top it off the whole thing is set to Queen. This series is being too good to me I can’t cope anymore.
