My Media SummerDuring these summer holidays, I have watched many films in the cinema of all different genres as I enjoy a wide variety of films. I have watched 'The Dark Knight Rises' which is the third Batman film, directed by Christopher Nolan. The Dark knight began their marketing campaigns in the early stages of the production in order to give the film further promotion and success which paid off as the film was given a 8.5 out of 10 which I strongly agree with.
I also watched 'The Watch' which was a comedy film, I enjoyed this mainly because of the cast which included Richard Ayoade, Ben Stiller, Jonah Hill and Ben Stiller. I found Richard Ayoade's role most entertaining as I find him hilarious in the other films and television programmes he stars in.
Over the summer I've listened to a variety of music, However I dislike new music which has recently been released in the charts as I prefer old music that came out in the 90's and early 2000's. However I did go to the wireless festival and saw many new and upcoming artists perform.
I've watched several T.V programmes over the holidays, I have watched a lot of my favourite programmes which are mainly British comedy (The I.T crowd, Miranda and Misfits), although I do enjoy American dramas such as Vampire Diaries and Pretty Little Liars. I also watched many of Olympic games events which was hosted by London this year.
I frequently went on Youtube, Twitter and Google. I find Youtube interesting as it keeps me updated on all the new films music and T.V shows out. I used Twitter to socialise and keep in contact with people.
The main story in the news that caught my attention was the GCSE grades and how they were marked harshly, this appealed to me as I was one of the students that received my results in the summer.
