Hi, I'm Jenna.




Don't you just adore old films? Well, I know I do!
I mean, there's a special quality these types of films hold, which ultimately, no 21st century film can surpass. I mean, I love the way directors use film-noir, which is very common in films made during the 1940s-50s.
Lately, I've been lucky enough to be given the chance to analyse these old films for my English module work. And ironically, most of these films I've been given the chance to watch star the beautiful, breathtaking and lovable Grace Kelly.

Dial M for Murder.

Rear Window.
I've also developed a passion for Alfred Hitchcock's work. I mean, these two texts truly encapsulate the beauty of films, with the help of some fine actors, of course. And, I guess these 'arty' interpretations, or pet theories of mine, do kind of relate to the fashion world. Both films and fashion both have to be developed basically in the same manner - through creativity; except, directors use film techniques to emulate their creative minds and plots, per se.
Anyway, today has been an extremely boring day. Not only have I completed some Ancient History notes that took me over an hour to write (I was expecting it to take up the whole day), but I have been watching Big Love, whilst eating a huge freakin' easter egg! Ahh crap, you have absolutely no idea how fat I feel.
Y'know how you eat something big and think, 'this is all I'm eating all day' and then two hours later, you grab some lollies or something. That's the negative side of having too much junk food in your pantry. See, every easter my family invites our relatives over, and mum thinks she's expected to buy a whole lot of chocolates, soft drinks, lollies, chips etc etc, however, nobody eats them, which means that we're left with them.
I mean, this would be a seven year olds idea of heaven, but for some, not a teenagers.

On the other hand however, I received my half-yearly school report back, and topped 4/6 classes.

Ah yes, I know what you mean. The magic of those films really can't be recreated, people aren't like this anymore and it's a bit of a shame really.

Lovely blog:)
