Remembrance Day – Lest We Forget!

They went with songs to the battle, they were young.
Straight of limb, true of eyes, steady and aglow.
They were staunch to the end against odds uncounted
They fell with their faces to the foe.
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them!

London Premiere – Star Wars: The Force Awakens

On Wednesday I just so happened to have a trip down to London planned to see A Christmas Carol. This had been planned since the end of September and I had no idea that it was going to be on the same day as the European Premiere of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. I have never been the biggest Star Wars fan (although that has started to change). But I was still very excited about it going on in Leicester Square at the same time I was going to be down. Luckily I was tweeting about it on the train heading into London and someone told me wristbands were being handed out inside the Odeon until 12pm. That was rather good timing as my train got in about 11am.

DC Universe – Will it be able to rival Marvel?

It has eventually started to happen, well actually DC started the universe back in 2013 with Man of Steel but in all honesty I didn’t realise that at the time. I mean come on we had a failed Superman attempt years before that with the awful Superman Returns. So another Superman attempt wasn’t a big thing. Well actually it turns out it was a huge thing!

From next year 2016, DC have slated in 10 films to release in four years. Now that really is making a statement and giving the audience a lot of new characters. Although some characters we may have seen in the past but I am very interested to see how it is all going to play out. Over the weekend because of the incredible Comic Con, Warner Brothers have spoilt us with two incredible trailers for next year’s releases. Those being Batman v Superman and The Suicide Squad.

Happy New Year 2015!

Happy New Year to all of the followers of Let’s Go To The Movies

Thank you for you support over the past year (and years). It was a truly record breaking time in 2014 for Let’s Go To The Movies. I hit a record number of followers, of likes and comments.

As as well as reaching 1 million hits for site overall.

2014 was also the most successful reaching over 250,000 posts in this year alone!

I also broke my record for number of films watching at the cinema in a calendar year (separate post will be appearing for that). I also attempted my first blogathon that didn’t go massively to plan, but I tried! (My Hometown Blogathon)

So thank you once again to all of the people who support the site, like my posts and comment on them. Onwards and upwards for 2015 and let’s hope I can break records all over again.
