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 »
Happy 007 day!
On 5th October in 1962 Dr. No had its World Premiere in London! The rest is history right?
Who’s your favourite James Bond?
What is your favourite Bond film?
When Michael Sullivan Jr witnesses a murder he ends up on the road with his mob father Michael Sullivan. This was never going to be easy and they are pushed to the limits.
James Bond has been hit by the Coronavirus, that’s right 007 which was due for release in a month (2nd April) has now been pushed back until November. MGM, Universal and the producers of No Time To Die announced this yesterday. Considering cinemas had just started taking bookings in the past week as well it is truly devastating for them and the abuse they are now going to face from people who were already demanding refunds.
The new release date for the UK is now 12th November 2020 and the US on 25th November 2020 and other worldwide release dates to follow!
Isn’t it nice to wake up to something exclusive from the film world? Well, I hope it’s not just me who feels that way. Here we have Billie Eilish and the next Bond theme “No Time To Die”.
I like the sound of this as it fits with what we expect from a good Bond theme and ballad!
What do you think?
Here are the Male performances that have made my top 25 for the 2019 films that I managed to see throughout the year. This will include some 2018 films by date but due to the UK release dates they were available for this list. I actually had 45 on the long list so to cut it down it was a very tough ask! Some amazing films and therefore performances in 2019!
As we enter closer towards the 2020 awards season honouring the films from 2019, the nominations are coming thick and fast! The latest to be announced are right here the Golden Globes for 2020!
