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.
That’s right the true legend Robert De Niro turns 77 years old today and I have to admit that I more than enjoyed the Robert De Niro-Athon I ended up doing a few months ago, really catching up with some of his outstanding films. Including The Godfather: Part II, Once Upon a Time in America and A Bronx Tale.
That’s right another year old and now a very old 33!
So I have decided to continue what I did for last year and see which actresses won Oscars when they were 33 years old and it just so happens my absolute favourites Julia Roberts in Erin Brockovich and Catherine Zeta Jones in Chicago we’re both 33 when they picked up Oscars!
Patrick Stewart the legend that is turns 80 years old today! Certainly does not look it at all, here’s to many more years of films and theatre! I was honoured to see him on stage in No Man’s Land a few years and go and see him exit the stage door.
That’s right the legend that is Clint Eastwood turns 90 today! He has directed and starred in some of my favourite films, Million Dollar Baby and The Bridges of Madison County are two that mean so much to me!

That’s right today is the legend that is Richard E. Grant’s 63rd birthday! He has been keeping everyone entertained on Twitter during lockdown with his Withnail & Isolation quotes, which really are a big highlight of this tough time!
Let’s take a moment to appreciate the many different roles he has taken on and hope that we get to see his amazing turn in Everybody’s Talking About Jamie film version in October!
