In the Heights (2021) Review

Usnavi lives in Washington Heights in New York owning a bodega, constantly saving to get himself a better life back in his native the Dominican Republic. In the Heights shows how close the neighbourhood had been, but everything looked to be falling apart as everyone seems to want to get out.

2 Tickets Per Person to Save UK Cinema Sector

Finance Experts Company Debt released exclusive insights and data on the Cinema Sector.

Based on an average cinema price of £6.75, the UK Cinema industry needs to sell 141 million tickets this summer to make up the deficit caused by COVID-19.

In total, with a decline of 132,072,886 admissions in 2020, the British cinema industry has been amongst the worst industries hit by COVID-19.

The UK Cinema Association reported a box office decline of 955.1 million GBP in 2020.

Few could have predicted the 80% slump in box office revenues last year, resulting in a £2.2billion loss for the Cineworld group.

Everyone in the UK would have to buy two tickets to bring the industry to pre-covid levels.

Cineworld: Reopening May 19th 2021!

Wednesday 19th May 2021

That date will forever go down as one of the greatest of all time, after the cinema closures for the majority of 2020 and then almost six months of 2021 I am utterly excited to be able to head back to my favourite place. The cinema is the place that I have missed the most during the different lockdowns and being on furlough for a period of time. Not just for new film releases but for my mental health of being able to switch off and truly just enjoy sitting in the dark, with the gigantic screen, the surround sound and fully getting lost in a film. No phone to distract me and just witness everything unfolding.

Unfortunately I am having to wait until Thursday 20th for my first trip though as I have managed to get tickets for the Newcastle game on the Wednesday with a 6pm KO I really don’t think I can combine the two things. But I will be there Thursday and Friday, for Mortal Kombat and then Godzilla v Kong. Of course my Sunday afternoon/early evening trips will be back as well.

I truly feel sorry for anyone who does not enjoy going to the cinema and watching films as they have no idea at all how utterly exciting this really is, especially for getting some talk going around new releases and quite frankly writing new reviews for films seen on the big screen is going to be utterly amazing again for Let’s Go To The Movies. As much as I have been thankful for the different streaming services, nothing at all is better than going to the cinema.

The Friday Fake Cinema Club (FFCC)

Welcome to 2021 when in the UK at least we currently don’t have the Cinema to attend. So I have come up with an alternative to try and keep everyone going as well as discussions around films that quite a few people have watched at the same time. Some of these you might have seen before or some could be new films, I will use a wide range of streaming services Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Disney+, Apple TV+ and even Sky Cinema (also included in Now TV). As I am UK based I will be going off what is available in our area, hopefully this is similar to different countries and can be transferred for more people to take part!

This was the first tweet I have put out about this to gage interest and really looking to push forward so if anyone would like to add films to the list, comment on this post, tweet me @LetsGoToTheMov7 or email letsgotothemovies7@gmail.com (Subject heading FFCC – Film Suggestion).

Top 10 – Best Films of 2020

Considering the way 2020 went with the cinema closed for most of the year, even when they reopened the new films being offered were few and far between. Although I cannot really complain too much with getting to see all three Lord of the Rings extended editions twice something I had wanted to do for many years. So this year I have had to combine the small number of cinema films which include some 2019 films but due to UK release dates qualify for my top 10 best films of 2020 list! Then combined with films then added to streaming sites and catching up with some before the end of the year. At one point I was unsure if I could even pick a top 10, so it could be my most interesting yet!

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!
