I have always been a fan of George Clooney therefore was very disappointed to count up that I have missed out on eight of his films. Especially since one of those is his Oscar-winning performance! But As you can see below this top 10 list is based on the Clooney films I have seen.
Films I’ve Seen: The Descendants, The American, Up in the Air, Oceans 11, Oceans 12, Oceans 13, Fantastic Mr Fox, The Men Who Stare At Goats, Burn After Reading, Michael Clayton, Intolerable Cruelty, Confessions of a Dangerous Mind, The Perfect Storm, One Fine Day, Batman & Robin, From Dusk Till Dawn.
Films I Haven’t Seen: Ides of March, Leatherheads, The Good German, Syriana, Solaris, O Brother Where ‘Art Thou, Three Kings, Out of Sight.

In recent years Meryl Streep has easily become one of my favorite actress. Watching her in all different types of film is just incredible, she is such an amazing actress. The most Oscar nominated actress of all, with a couple of Gold statues to go with the nominations.
The LAMB is this month going to be celebrating Meryl . . . that means more Meryl posts from Let’s Go To The Movies, in celebration of such a fantastic career that is still going so strong. I really do think Meryl will pick up a long-awaited Oscar next year for her performance as Thatcher in the Iron Lady.

The Bridges of Madison County (1995)
Mamma Mia! (2008)
Julie & Julia (2009)

Can a woman be more successful than her partner in Hollywood?
The day eventually arrived and the nominations have now been released (I now know which films I have to watch before 7th March) and we can all start debating and creating our predictions on who is going to walk away with the golden statue come Oscar night.
We go back to 10 nominations for Best Picture and an animated film has been included in those 10, that being Up. Now that will cause a lot of debate because from what I have read people preferred Wall-E to Up. From my first look at the nominations the only suprise for myself is seeing District 9 in the Best Picture cateogry. Everything else is pretty much what was expected.
The Blind Side
The Hurt Locker
A Serious Man

Closer to the ceremony I will post my predictions on who I think will walk away with the Golden Globe on the night.

I have to admit that I was so sick of seeing the trailer for this movie, that I just thought I had to go and see it to see if it was actually any good at all. I did not really enjoy it, while it had amusing moments I just did not like the format it was in. Especially after the last animated movie I saw was “Up” this was quite an extreme to go and see really. Now with all the of the technology available this just felt old before its time and like watching something from 20+ years ago.

While at the cinema yesterday, I saw the trailer for “Fantastic Mr. Fox” and wasn’t really too sure if I wanted to see it or not. But the actors who’s voices are used are just so good ie. Meryl Streep and George Clooney for a start. Any way here is the poster:
