Christian Bale is quite possibly one of the greatest British actors of all time. Causing chaos at the Golden Globes when some people didn’t realise that he is Welsh! I found that very amusing but also confirmation that he is therefore a truly outstanding actor! He has been nominated four times for an Oscar-winning for his supporting role in The Fighter.
He is very well-known for his serious method acting and really becoming the character. This has resulted in serious weight loss and weight gain over the years to achieve a totally different look. Not forgetting his working out to become Batman for Christopher Nolan!
He is certainly one of my favourite actors and here are my choices for his 7 Greatest performances . . . (So far) . . .
This Monday in January is seen as being Blue Monday the most depressing day of the year, that is due to the festive period being more than over and struggling through January still waiting to be paid! Therefore I decided to put together a list of 7 feel good films which I totally love.
Isn’t escapism and being made to feel happy one of the main reasons we watch so many films? Well, it certainly is for me so I thought what better day than the most depressing of the year to think about the films that make me very happy!
Sometimes the hype surrounding a film can build it up so much that you are therefore left disappointed. Which is why I like to put this list together, I mean the disappointment might even be from yourself building the film up as you are excited to see it! Which I guess happens mainly with sequels now.
(L to R) Owen (CHRIS PRATT), Franklin (JUSTICE SMITH), Claire (BRYCE DALLAS HOWARD) and Zia (DANIELLA PINEDA) try and save Blue in “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.” When the island’s dormant volcano begins roaring to life, Owen and Claire mount a campaign to rescue the remaining dinosaurs from this extinction-level event. Welcome to “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.”
So check out the films that left me the most disappointed in 2018 . . .
Some films you manage to see without much build up or expectation and you end up very surprised. I guess this is how we manage to find hidden gems and one of the main reasons to keep your options open and give different genres a chance.
It was quite tough to put my list down to only seven films but here are the final ones . . .
We all have our favourite image of Santa Claus from watching films and feel as though that is our Santa! I have decided to pick my favourite seven from the world of the movies! Obviously having to start with this amazing photo of Buddy the Elf who is very excited about this list!
So many to choose from over the years of film and some of the choices I found very easy and others I have tried to be a little bit different in terms of the films I have enjoyed which may just have a slightly different take on the role we all know and love.
Since Thor: Ragnarok has been on Sky Cinema the past few weeks I have found myself watching it over and over again. I am actually very annoyed with myself for not including it in my top 10 films of 2017. I have no idea at all why I didn’t put it on the list as it really is a truly fantastic Marvel film!

I have actually lost count how many times I have watched it since it appeared on Sky Cinema. I will eventually buy it on 4K Blu-ray I promise!
Inspired by Super Bowl Sunday I thought this was the perfect opportunity to put together my list of films that I love which are about American Football. Just remember though that my knowledge of American Football is not fantastic but I really do love the films about it, working in sport I just find myself obsessed with all different sports films.
My choices are covering many different aspects of the sport and how it really can be used to change and help with so many different things in life! American Football films do have a high quality in performances and storylines to go along with some great quotes and speeches!
The great thing about watching so many films is that every so often you will watch something that you are totally surprised with and really enjoyed it. Often when you were not expecting to like it at all! Somtimes these can really become hidden gems!
Moving on from the top 10 best and worst list I also like putting together some films that have disappointed me during the past year. These are mainly the films that I was looking forward to or had a lot of hype around them and just well didn’t live up to it!
You may or not be aware that Julia Roberts is my all time favourite actress (Sorry Meryl/Catherine Zeta Jones) so I thought I would start a new series of blog posts 7 Greatest Performances and who better to start with than Julia Roberts? This will be looking at the best performances from different actors rather than judging just the film. I thought this would create some very good and interesting lists, as the greatest performances are not necessarily in the best films. This comes on the back of seeing Wonder over the weekend which I thought she was just amazing in!
