RIP Ian Holm

Rest in Peace to legendary actor Sir Ian Holm who has passed away today at the age of 88, he had been battling with Parkinson’s disease but it was announced that it was peaceful with his family around him.

He had an incredible career working in theatre from the Royal Shakespeare Company and starring as King Lear then into the movie world with Alien, Chariots of Fire and my favourite Lord of the Rings. A message was passed from him unable to join the Zoom reunion. Goodby Bilbo Baggins ❤️

100 Must See Cult Movies

For Christmas I received this incredible Scratch poster which has 100 Must See Cult Movies on it, super exciting to see how many I have already seen and then scratching off the silver to reveal the unique image related to that film.

I have only seen 34 out of the 100

So you have guessed it this is going to be combined as my blindspot challenge as well as a new feature for 2020 (and probably beyond). Catching up with these films regarded as cult classics!

Top 10 – Films I Caught Up With In 2012

This a new top 10 list for 2012, I thought it was a good idea to look back and pick 10 films that I have eventually seen this year from years gone by. Classics or much talked about films which I eventually got round to watching this year. Just thinking back to some of the reviews on the blog, I think there’s going to be some films in this list that people won’t believe that it has taken me until 2012 to eventually watch them!

Probably not really in much of an order but 10 fantastic films I am now pleased to say that I have seen and added to my ever growing review section here at Let’s Go To The Movies. I actually thought it would be very easy to do this list but I actually hadn’t watched that many older films this year, but I hope that you will agree that most of them are top quality! Some aren’t but for that reason alone I am very pleased to say that I have now seen them!

Avatar (2009) Build Up!

I have just realised that I have not made any posts about Avatar . . . and actually find this quite shocking for quite a lot of reasons. Those being; I have seen the trailer loads of times over the past few months and in 3D a couple of times, I love fantasy films and the thought of getting totally lost in another world, this is the most expensive film ever made at 300 million, it has been an idea for 15 years and taken the past 4 years for James Cameron to make the film . . . and we all remember the success he had in his last big venture, still the biggest box office taking ever in Titanic. But Avatar is going to be Epic in a totally different way. CGI . . . 3D . . . in a Sci-Fi/action/adventure/thriller, it just promises to be out of this world and blow you away to something that you have never seen before, and by looking at the trailer and pictures it is certainly going to do just that.
