Letsgotothemovies.co.uk!

A couple of days ago now I purchased a new domain:

letsgotothemovies.co.uk 

I thought it would be a good idea so everyone knew I was based in the UK as often I think that is rather confusing.

To go along with the new domain (I am still keeping Letsgotothemovies7.com due to so many links to that online) I thought a new layout would be a great idea!

If readers can let me know if it is better than the old layout to read that would be fantastic!

(Look out for the different films in the header, constantly changing)

Happy 80th Birthday Jack Nicholson!

Today marks the 80th Birthday for one of my favourite actors Jack Nicholson. I just had to have a blog post to celebrate this but it won’t be the only one as I am also taking part in a Blogathon so you will have to watch out for that post as well!

So why not celebrate as well? What is your favourite Jack Nicholson film and/or performance?

8 Years of Let’s Go To The Movies!

I have a confession to make I missed my blog-versary marking the 8th year since I started Let’s Go To The Movies.

Which was the 9th February 2009!

Thank you to everyone who reads, likes, comments and shares. Both on the blog and via Twitter!

Why Fifty Shades is anything but romantic!

Everyone at the moment is apparently in love with Christian Grey again. You know that billionaire who thrives off abusing women with pain in “sex” punishments to make himself feel better.

In Fifty Shades Darker he even calls himself a sadist. He’s controlling, manipulative and suffocating. Telling you that you can’t do something and wanting you just for his own. The latter of that would or could be nice I guess but not in the way it is portrayed through his character. Does this therefore risk our ideas of love and relationships to change?

Give me Robert in Bridges of Madison County standing in the rain any day over Christian Grey and his “playroom” any day!

V-Day . . . I’m a soppy romantic at heart!

I wasn’t going to mention that it is Valentine’s Day . . . Honest. But every year I cannot help but come up with something to post about. Last year I went for it with some huge posts and put together 100 Romantic Films but if you are more cynical than that here is a Top 10 of Anti Valentine’s Day Films!

No better way to start off than with this incredibly amazing (and soppy) quote from one of my all time favourite films ever. You cannot help but love When Harry Met Sally!

Film Blogging Tips – IMDb External Reviews

Over the past few weeks I have found myself mentioning this to people on Twitter who had absolutely no idea what I was going on about. On IMDb – Internet Movie Database although I am sure you already knew that part. You can add your Film or TV Series reviews onto the external review part of the site.

I am pretty sure I just saw someone else mention it and started doing it then. Well, worth taking a little bit of time to put all of your reviews onto the site. I get around 15/20 clicks from IMDb by having my reviews in external reviews. I think it will probably be something that becomes even more popular with the announcement that they are closing down the messages boards. I guess both good and bad reasons behind that, but that is a totally different issue. I am here to help you expand your blog and get more people reading your reviews that you take a lot of time and effort to write.

I will take you on a step by step guide and honestly once you’ve submitted a couple of reviews it takes seconds to update!

25 Things to Love about Hook!

Hook turns 25 today so what better to celebrate that than coming up with plenty of things to love about the very different tale of Peter Pan? Even if like myself you do not want to admit that one of your childhood favourites is this old as it also means you are therefore older than the film!

I have always seen this as my Peter Pan film as other than the Disney animated version this was the newest one that came out when I was a kid and plus Robin Williams totally owned the 1990s when it came to kids films. He really was our actor, the best thing I think is that these performances have stood the test of time and are really something special.

I just love what Steven Spielberg was doing with this story though what if he did grow up, how would he actually be in life? Would he remember Neverland or was that all just a silly “dream”. I know this film seems to get a little flack but I certainly love it, always have and always will!

Don’t forget to let me know your thoughts about the film! Was this your Peter Pan story? As we certainly have had plenty more since this was released 25 years ago and I still think it is the best one we have had in that time, even though many have tried to re-invent it I think this remains so unique.
