My 7 Favourite Steven Spielberg Films

Steven Spielberg is one of the greatest directors of all time. Today he is 70 years old and showing no signs of slowing down and stopping when it comes to making films. To help celebrate this day I thought it was the perfect opportunity to pick my seven favourites of his films. Please bear in mind though that I haven’t seen all of them!

7 Older Men I’ve Had An Obsession With!

Feel free to judge me but I don’t really care! I certainly have some strange obsessions and fangirl moments over older men. I am hoping that with this post people will either agree, understand where I am coming from or just respect my total honesty in admitting my random obsessions. This has often resulted into buying a lot of older films and rushing out to see the latest release from that actor and generally just well loving them!

For the first ever Sky Cinema are dedicating a channel to an actor, which better actor to do this for than Tom Hanks? He is impossible not to love, has given us so many outstanding performances. We now get the chance to watch so many of these great performances back to back.

From Monday 10th – Sunday 16th October we will have this pleasure!

Oscars 2016 – Best Supporting Actor

oscars-1_zpsex6yqsek

This is usually a category which has a very clear run away winner I don’t actually think it is the same this year. Different actors seem to have been picking up the supporting award making it a little bit more interesting than previous years. I think I am pretty happy with all of the nominees as thought they all put in good performances.

Oscars 2016 – Best Picture

oscars-1_zpsex6yqsek

I have managed to see 7 out of the 8 films nominated for Best Picture, which is pretty disappointing considering I bought Mad Max a few weeks ago and struggled to get into it and haven’t had a chance to properly watch it! Honestly I will get round to it eventually. So here are my thoughts on each of the films that have been nominated for the big one!

Why I’m Pleased Brooklyn is Nominated for Best Picture!

As we are all very aware the Oscar Nominations for 2016 were announced a few days ago. This year will see eight films battle it out for Best Picture, with The Revenant being the current favourite to win the award. At this current moment in time I have only seen half of them.  But plan to see Room in the next week and then Spotlight and The Big Short when they are released in the UK in next few weeks. I will have to buy Mad Max: Fury Road to catch up with that one!

Oscars 2016 – Nominations

2014-01-16-Academy-Awards-Oscars-Generic-jpg

Here we go the nominations for the 2016 Oscars!

Still seen as the biggest awards in film and most prestigious, maybe a couple of surprises in terms of not getting a nomination but the majority is probably expected. Maybe the Academy should release the nominations before the rest of the awards and it wouldn’t be as easy to try and predict them? I will be doing plenty of posts for the big awards once I have seen the rest of the films, we have a busy couple of weeks coming up in the UK!

Bridge of Spies

Mad Max: Fury Road
