Movies According To Mischief – Shaun the Sheep: Farmageddon

Shaun the Sheep: Farmageddon Directed by: Will Becher & Richard Phelan Cast: Shaun, Timmy, Bitzer, The Farmer, Lu-La For those of you who do not know me well, I am a little bit of a fan of Shaun The Sheep. Don’t ask me why I have such a love affair with the super cute, cheeky, caring piece of meat, but I do. One of the first presents my boyfriend ever bought me was a Shaun The Sheep DVD boxset. The theme tune is one of the best ear worms to have, I recommend you check it out.Starting as an admirer of stop- motion animation, Aardman’s Wallace & Gromit are beautifully British comedic short films extending into full length features in later years, in which Shaun first makes his appearance in “A Close Shave” (1995).His loveable demeanour earned him his own self-titled series, set at Mossy Bottom Farm with the rest…

Movies According To Mischief – Joker

Joker Directed by: Todd Philips Cast: Joaquin Phoenix, Robert De Niro, Frances Conroy I’m sure I have previous mentioned that superhero films are not really my cup of tea. There’s nothing about the fantasy of figures having super powers and saving the damsel in distress and avoiding a global catastrophe that floats my boat. There are exceptions to this rule: Fantastic Beasts and of course Deadpool, but who doesn’t love his sense humour! I’ll go as far to say I enjoyed Dark Knight (2008) but purely for the portrayal of the Joker by Heath Ledger (RIP), as the storyline didn’t grab me and left me then longing for more Joker on screen.The Joker is an interesting character to play, he is the psychologically unhinged nemesis of Batman (the poor bloke, dressed in black, who is continually trying to save the fictional city of Gotham from its crime problem whilst being…

Do you worry about what others think?

As well as being one of the cornerstones of #1PMChat, Hilary Sims is a Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and an Accredited Member of the National Counselling Society (NCS). Here, Hilary gives her insight into something that many of us are familiar with... Do you worry about getting involved in social situations or taking part in education discussions because you worry about what others might think of you? How do you know what other people are thinking?

We are interpreting their reactions from our own point of reference. For example, if someone shouts a reply at me, that doesn’t mean they are  angry at me or even the current situation. Their anger could have been…
