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 »
2020 is the 15th anniversary of the BAFTA having the Rising Star Award which is voted for by the public. Starting in 2006 known as the Orange Rising Star Award and then since 2013 the EE Rising Star Award, this is due to sponsorship and pretty much helps the award with publicity and getting the public involved in the voting for the winner.
Over the years as I have become more and more obsessed with films I know more about the nominees which in all honesty makes me feel very special and at times very geeky. Which I personally love and am very proud of, I felt coming up to the 15th year it was very important to take a look back at not only the winners from each year but the other nominees as well. The list is very impressive and it feels as though someone at BAFTA can certainly pick out rising stars in the best possible way, the nominees are chosen regardless of gender, nationality and whether they have made a breakthrough in television, film or both.
This year has been a very good year for films and I do always try to pick better and ensure I don’t go and see the mindless comedies that I know I will not enjoy. But it is not possible to fully do that and here are the ten worst films that I managed to see in 2019! This is both cinema released and then films I have caught up with on streaming services Netflix and Amazon Prime, also on flights (a great place to catch up with new releases that you might have missed).
Check out the list . . .
Back in 2013 Cineworld started doing Secret Screenings for Unlimited members and by 2018 we had reached the 10th Secret Screening. In the past week we have had announcements for two taking place in July 2019! So I thought this was the best time to have a look back at the first ten films we got as special previews.
Cineworld have slightly changed the way they used to do them as for the early ones we got clues over the week building up to the screening date, but they stopped doing that and changed the running time and standard age of 15. This meant that we had a child free preview of Incredibles 2 and that was quite frankly outstanding!
Something they usually do in a very clever way is having the screenings not long before a huge release and people get taken in that it is going to be that film (yes, thinking about to Star Wars and it was actually In the Heart of the Sea). Not forgetting that we have also had a preview of a film that went on to become the Best Picture Oscar winner, Green Book. So we have certainly had many different genres in the Secret Screenings.
Molly becomes Agent M after spending the past twenty years trying to find the Men in Black and longs to become one of them. They protect the Earth from all the different creatures in the universe, attempting to let everyone live in peace.
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.
In 1969 a group of strangers meet by chance at a hotel named the El Royale, it is very run down and has a dark past. Between two states California and Nevada, the hotel I split across the two and you can chose a room in either of those.
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.
Well we are all aware that Endgame is near just a few more weeks to wait now. So I have decided to dedicate this April to Avengers! I will be putting together plenty of different posts gushing about just how fantastic the Marvel Universe is (well most of it anyway) and the characters we have grown to love over the years!
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!
