2020 Letterboxd Stats!

I signed up for Letterboxd way back in 2015. Yes, really! Although I didn’t actually start using it properly until the end of 2019 and therefore 2020 was the first full year that I logged every single film that I watched. Albeit not as many Cinema films as I would have liked, which leads me on to saying during the lockdown/furlough stage I spent a lot of time logging in the diary all of the films I had seen at the Cinema dating back to 2003 (yes, I still have my Lord of the Rings: Return of the King ticket). This obviously took a few weeks as I also logged the films I have review on here as well. So as you imagine a lot of time was taken to do this. It gives some amazing all-time stats though.

Here we can take a look at my 2020 stats and I am sure no one will be surprised with my most watched films either!

15 Years of Batman Begins!

That’s right the truly incredible start to Christopher Nolan’s darker Batman trilogy was released 15 years ago today, I don’t know about anyone else but that makes me feel incredibly old!?!? I adore this trilogy and Batman Begins is an incredible film. Christian Bale as Batman/Bruce Wayne is very different to what we had previous seen and then you add in Michael Caine as Alfred! Cillian Murphy as Scarecrow is haunting as well!

Cineworld to reopen all UK Cinemas in July!

News broke today that Cineworld is planning to reopen all of its UK cinemas in July as the lockdown measures begins to ease following the pandemic.

The big release in July is Christopher Nolan’s Tenet which is due for release on 17th July, which is the day after my birthday so it appears I could well be back at the movies by then! Another big release is the live action Mulan film which has been pushed back a few times now due to the world crisis. As everything stands we will be in for a very busy time in November!

When the cinemas reopen they will have social distancing measures in place which will include isolation and staggering film times to reduce crowding.

Movie Locations: Gotham Bank (The Dark Knight)

My recent trip to Chicago was to run the marathon but along with that I managed to do some sightseeing for my first time in the city.

Something that excited me about my trip and thinking film related was the fact that Christopher Nolan used Chicago as his Gotham City.
