100 Must See Cult Movies

For Christmas I received this incredible Scratch poster which has 100 Must See Cult Movies on it, super exciting to see how many I have already seen and then scratching off the silver to reveal the unique image related to that film.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I have only seen 34 out of the 100

So you have guessed it this is going to be combined as my blindspot challenge as well as a new feature for 2020 (and probably beyond). Catching up with these films regarded as cult classics!

MTV Movie Awards 2012 – Winners

The MTV Movie Awards are voted for by the public, but definitely a young group of people. It always seems to be battle of the fandoms on who will pick up the different awards. This year seemed to be know different as Harry Potter, The Hunger Games and The Twilight Saga all went head to head. I think some of the categories show quite a wide range of actors and performance types but at the end of the day it’s more of a popularity contest than anything else.

Breakthrough Performance
Elle Fanning – Super 8
Melissa McCarthy – Bridesmaids
Liam Hemsworth – The Hunger Games
Rooney Mara – The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
Shailene Woodley – The Descendants – WINNER

Top 10 – Missed Films of 2011

I feel like I have missed quite a lot of the films which are on other blogger’s top 10 lists. Therefore I decided to make a list of the films I missed in 2011 which I really wanted to see. The main reason behind missing these films will be because of a limited release at the cinema, and mine usually gets missed out of these. Or that the film is only on for one week, and as soon as it is on it’s gone.

Looking at this list I feel as though I have missed some of the best films of 2011!

September 2011 @ the Movies

As it coming up to September I thought that a new monthly feature on my blog is going to contain the up and coming releases for the UK in that month. This would therefore be the films that I would also hope to have the chance of seeing at my local Cineworld cinema . . . obviously if a limited release happens, then I struggle to see the smaller films. I think we should now start to see some better films coming out after the so called summer blockbuster season is now over as we enter September.

We see a wide range of genre’s opening in the month of September, so you really do have quite a broad choice of films to choose every week. This is something that has to be better than the summer which seemed to be just comic book film after comic book film . . . which I do love but it’s nice to have some different types of films out for a bit more variety!

Fright Night

Vampire films are still classed as being very in at the moment, although I wouldn’t complain with Colin Farrell being a vampire! But this one is going for the mix between comedy and horror, which we don’t really see very often. But not long to wait to find out how this film is!
