Annouced this afternoon are the 2018 Olivier Awards recognising some of the amazing productions and performances over the past year! I have been lucky enough to see quite a few of these productions as well!
As we are approaching the last few months of 2017 I honestly don’t think the standard of films is improving too much in all honesty, I am sure you will see exactly why when looking at the seven films that I went to see during October.
The number of films I went to see was 7 and this then cost £2.55 per film as the Unlimited Card at Cineworld is £17.90 per month.
4th – Goodbye Christopher Robin – Review
11th – The Mountain Between Us – Review
12th – The Death of Stalin – Review (Unlimited Screening)
17th – The Snowman – Review
20th – Geostorm – Review
25th – Thor: Ragnarok – Review
29th – Breathe – Review
Based on the incredible true love story of Robin and Diana Cavendish who defied all of the odds to live after he was paralysed due to Polio. How his wife fight for him to have a life outside of the hospital he has been stuck in, truly inspiring.
This year I will attempting to Live Blog as well as be active on Twitter (@LetsGoToTheMov7) during the Oscars. Although this year I haven’t taken any time off work, as I fell asleep anyway last year.
So keep checking back on here and see how far I actually make it through the show! Comments and discussion welcomed!
The best actor race was looking like only one winner was going to come about but another which in recent weeks has changed a little bit with other awards going from Affleck to Washington. I certainly know who I preferred in their films.
Don’t forget to let me know who you would like to see win and who you think will win (if that is different of course).
This year nine films have been given the honour of being nominated for Best Picture. I managed to catch most of them pretty early thanks to Cineworld having so many Unlimited preview screenings which certainly was a bonus! Not forgetting to mention that my number one film from 2016 is amongst the nominees as well!
It is time to have another look at each of the films that have been nominated and I will let you know what I want to win, what I think will win and what I think has an outside chance of taking home the Oscar!
As much as I love La La Land, I really do want to see BAFTA really honour I, Daniel Blake as thought it was a remarkable film. (Even if they did snub Dave Johns for the leading role)
