This is something I have been putting together for quite a long time now and I have held off posting it or even attempting to start the blog post in fear that I have forgotten and somehow missed a favourite film from the list. Barring in mind I got up to 72 films and then had to cut it down to the 50. I would like to make clear these are my favourite films, some might have happened to win Oscars as well and some certainly have not at all. The way I have decided on my favourites is the sheer joy they bring and the number of rewatches I have had over the years. While I have listed 1-50 a lot of them can be shifted around and changed with each other. It is going to highlight my love for musicals and for certain actors and actresses! I doubt it will contain many surprises though!Read More »
Eddie Morra was a struggling writer who could not even start his latest novel let alone finish it, when he is introduced to a pill that allows him to access 100% of his brains abilities he manages to become a financial wizard but it comes with so much danger!
It has been announced who will be attending the BAFTA awards on Sunday and this certainly means I am one very happy fan girl at the moment with so many of my favourites due to attend!
Who from the list excites you the most? So many amazing British actors in attendance and I personally cannot wait to see what Roman Griffin Davis will be wearing this time and wondering if he will have a small reunion with his awards show best friend Taron Egerton?

THIS POST CONTAINS AVENGERS: ENDGAME SPOILERS
Now that the ban has lifted on talking about Endgame, this was timed for the Spider-Man: Far From Home Trailer as it is the first film after and obviously the trailer contains spoilers. I have seen Endgame twice so far at the cinema with a plan to see it again tomorrow and I am possibly looking at it becoming my most watched film at the cinema if I manage to get five viewings in!
We are reunited with our favourite characters following the end of Infinity War and enter into the world where people have been lost. This shows the psychological strain it places on people and trying to adapt to life after the traumatic event.
After the events set by Thanos in Infinity War the universe and especially Earth is in ruins. The remaining Avengers must assemble once more in order to save everything.
Some truly outstanding new character posters have been released in this incredible build up! Can we even cope with this build up, each week closer to the release and we are given something else to play with our emotions!
Ok, so I kinda wanted to let everything settle with this as people were going crazy saying Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper were having an affair. So I would like to claim that it is just a truly outstanding performance, although I don’t imagine I would be too happy with it if I was Bradley Cooper’s girlfriend!
Highly tense and a truly outstanding version of the song. Quite possibly the best moment at the Oscars! It is so very hot . . .
The up and coming End Game is going to be the fourth Avengers film and I thought this was the perfect opportunity to take a look at the main character posters for each film. How we have plenty more within the Universe and how they have changed.
I actually think I love the End game one the most, Inifity War is a little bit disappointing I feel. Age of Ultron shows how crazy the film was going to be.
This is always the biggest talking point of any Oscar ceremony and which film will walk away with the title of being Best Picture. I seem to have a love/hate relationship with the winners of this category over the years. It seems to be either my favourite film that wins it or the film I hate the most from the nominees.
This year I feel its been a very strange and odd awards season, with that I don’t really have a film that I totally love out of these eight nominated films. None in this years batch I totally love and I don’t particularly hate with a passion either. I just feel rather neutral towards them. I am hoping that by putting together this blog post that I might be able to make my mind up a little bit more. I just feel as though it is a very weak year in terms of the quality of the films. We shall soon see, so let’s take one more look at the eight films up for the most prestigious honour in film . . .
