Can you really have one favourite film?

Updates- What’s on, “Well Did You Evah’s.” To do List- January/February

Christmas is now officially out of the way… For some people, I’ve just witnessed mince pies been baked and eaten a piece of Christmas cake so it is debatable.

This post is about somethings that are on the Well Did You Evah’s team’s agenda’s. Some of them there will be a blog posted about them, or they could just be important dates related to this blog.

1. Meet Mutter Oskar.

This project has been talked about a lot. Mutter Oskar is going to be Well Did You Evah’s Agony Aunt… Only Mutter Oskar is a fox. Get in contact with your questions, they can be anything, from films to see to relationship issues. She along with research will answer them as best as she can.

2. Valentines Day

Yes that day, where couples are supposed to get all lovey dovey and single people are expected to be depressed… Valentine’s day is basically named after a guy who was killed so I think being depressed may be a relevant expression.

        On Well Did You Evah’s list we are focusing on fictional couples (Are there any better type of couple?) for Valentines day. We will be giving you an overall review on each of the couples relationship, How it worked as a story, how it was effective, what could have been changed etc. On our preliminary list we have planned two blog posts. 1. Which focuses on fictional BOOK couples. Sneak peek at the list- Dimitri and Rose, (Richelle Mead’s Vampire Academy) Hades and Persephone (Kaitlin Bevis’ Persephone) ImageAlexander and Raven (Ellen Schreiber’s Vampire Kisses), Pierce and John (Meg Cabot’s Underworld) and Christian and Ana (E.L. James’ Fifty Shades (Oh Yes I am going there)) Are all on the list for our Valentine themed review. 2. Film Couples- This is going to be our Valentine’s day post. We are picking couples from and in films- possibly TV series- and doing the same as book couples. Sneak peek at the list? Clark Gable and Carole Lombard, Howl and Sophie (Howl’s Moving Castle) Tenth Doctor and Rose Tyler (Doctor Who) Are just a few on the current list.
