A few weeks ago now the latest additions to the Rotten Tomatoes critics were revealed and I applied again after applying many years ago now and never getting a reply. This year though I got a rejection, which I felt was better than nothing. My feedback wasn’t great and was directed at my reviews (or some of them anyway) not having enough substance to them and errors. I was a little bit gutted about it to be honest when I first read it.
It then reminded me of something, I do Let’s Go To The Movies as a hobby and started because I was going to the cinema so often and wanted to use this blog as a place to review the films I was watching. I never ever thought twelve years ago when starting it that it would still be going strong now and that I would have been in a list four years in row of Top 10 UK Film Blogs, something I have fallen out of the past two years. I don’t get paid for reviewing films, I actually pay quite a bit myself for the domain and upgrades to have more photo and video space. I do get the occasional screeners but it’s not a source of income and never will be.
Today marks 12 years since starting Let’s Go To The Movies and in that time I have blogged a lot about the films I truly adore and love, although also come across I don’t like and sometimes hate. Isn’t that one of the best things about watching films though? I certainly think so the discussion around films you just got and the ones you just didn’t.
Thanks to everyone for the support over these past 12 years, it has seen Let’s Go To The Movies make a UK Top 10 Film Blog four years in a row, but since been a couple of years now since making that list. I’ve done well though going for this long on just a little hobby right?

I thought this year I would celebrate with Harry and Sally, one of the greatest film moments of all time, considering it took them 12 years and 3 months to get together and married after their first meeting.
Just signed up to the new Buy Me a Coffee website where you can basically support Let’s Go To The Movies by buying me a coffee! Really simple and any support to help keep this site going is appreciated!
We all know just how difficult 2020 was from March time, this time last year everything was pretty normal and the start of a new year with so much hope and promise. Trips planned that we were all looking forward to, so many films to see at the cinema. Little did we know that this would not happen, trips cancelled sometimes last minute then everything cancelled. A few films pushing release dates by a few months and then until 2021. All we can do is hope that cinemas will reopen in the UK at some point in 2021 and we will eventually get to see so many films that we had been looking forward to!
Thank you for supporting and following Let’s Go To The Movies and I hope we can get back to the movies in 2021!
That’s right 11 whole years of blogging and writing about films that I love, like and sometimes hate. My blogaversary and something that I am very proud of growing and still being so obsessed with film!
Recently my biggest film love has come in the form of Jojo Rabbit! So here’s Jojo and Elsa dancing to remind everyone that when you are free you get to dance!
Basically this means it is the perfect date to watch V for Vendetta! More commonly known as Bonfire Night now, the 5th November in the UK marks the anniversary for an attempted plot by Guy Fawkes to blow up the Houses of Parliament in 1605.
This has led to Bonfires being lit and firework displays on and around the 5th since!
February 9th 2009 . . . That was the date I made my first ever blog post and as you can probably tell 10 years later it is still very much all about films! While Let’s Go To The Movies came a little bit later (7th June 2009) in terms of the name my adventure on here started 10 years ago to this date.
