The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel (2015) Review

Sonny’s idea of the The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel has worked so well that they do not have many vacancies for rooms left, so he dreams of expanding to open a second hotel. Not everything goes to plan though and he must also try to focus on his up and coming wedding.

Best Picture Project

After the current awards season I have decided to start a new project on Let’s Go To The Movies . . .

Best Picture Project

Not just to watch and review the winners of the Best Picture Oscar since it began but to watch and review all of the nominees as well. This is a very big task. For the recent years or maybe even from the 90s I might have already seen them.

When I have completed all from one year I will then bring it together and do a big post on that year. If I feel the right film won, which I enjoyed and most importantly which ones I hated. A couple stick out in my mind already thinking about that.

You can keep track of the progress with the link provided above, I will link to the reviews and add if I have seen the film. I am not going to set a time frame for this huge task but if anyone has any tips that would be appreciated, especially if a film is then available on UK Netflix or Sky On Demand, please let me know!

7 Meryl Streep Performances that Deserved to Win an Oscar

Meryl Streep is the most nominated actress of all time, a massive 19 nominations to which she has won 3 times. She won for her roles in The Iron Lady and Sophie’s Choice as a leading actress and Kramer vs Kramer as a supporting actress.

This year she picked up a nomination for actress in a supporting role as the Witch in ‘Into the Woods’ in recent years Streep has quickly become one of my all time favourite actresses. It might seem like an obvious choice with her critical acclaim but I really do think she actually deserves every single piece of it. She is different in each of her film roles and brings something to each character she has played on-screen.

Oscars 2015 – Best Actress

This is where it gets a little disappointing as I have only seen three out of the five nominated performances for this category. I don’t even remember hearing about ‘Two Days, One Night’ when that was released back in the summer in the UK. We are waiting for ‘Still Alice’ to be released which comes out in March sometime. So I will only be able to offer my thoughts on the other three nominees and look forward to seeing ‘Still Alice’ when it is released as well as trying to catch ‘Two Days, One Night’. Although you will probably know that only one actress is getting talked about when it comes to this category!

Oscars 2015 – Best Actor

Now for Best Actor in a Leading Role, once again I have managed to see all of these films and this category certainly does have some very strong performances. Apart from Cooper they are all first time Oscar nominees, which I think is a pretty nice thing really. Showing that new and old talent is being rewarded, two Brits in this category as well which lets face it has been mentioned absolutely loads on UK TV over the past few weeks. I am certainly hoping for an upset in this one in all honesty, I just hope it’s not so nailed on and straight forward.

Oscars 2015 – Best Supporting Actress

Continuing my good form of seeing the Oscar nominated films I am pleased to say that I have seen all five of the films for the nominated actresses in a supporting role. Another pretty strong category and with what everyone thinks will be a clear winner. Surely we are in for some surprises and people picking up the awards that are not so expected? Well we certainly have to hope so due to the fact that if everything is as widely predicted it will be rather boring. So I am going to have my last say on the actresses in a supporting role and pleased to say that I actually enjoyed all five of these films!
