Top 25 – Female Performances in 2019

2019 has been a fantastic year for female roles as I had 41 performances on my long list to cut down to make this top 25. I can only think that is an amazing way to notice the change in more interesting roles for females within film. I feel this list has a very good mixture of different types of roles across the different genres.

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.

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!

British Board of Film Classification – New Logos!

F4D7A236-C658-4C25-B393-1FD6F8DC430B

You may have seen over the past few days that the new look ratings for films has been released. This is for both cinematic and blu-ray/dvd releases. It’s actually pretty crazy that they have made them look so basic and well quite frankly awful. Surely the pink for 15 hasn’t been fully thought through considering the majority of horror films are not just rated at 15, I am sure it will look funny and spoil the tone of so many posters and covers.

A look back at 2009 in film!

Having already mentioned what a huge year 2009 is for Let’s Go To The Movies, formed in the February to be exact. That was therefore a massive year in terms of reviews for 2009 films, catching as many as I possibly could at the cinema and then reviewing them. Something I have grown to love over the past decade!

I don’t feel as though this was really an outstanding decade in terms of films and/or performances but we certainly were given plenty of entertainment. The 3D film was pushed a lot and in a few different ways which is something that Avatar really was groundbreaking with, however after ten years maybe that film was more of a gimmick than actually an amazing film? I certainly think so.

Has positive discrimination in film gone too far?

Positive discrimination – the practice or policy of favouring individuals belonging to groups known to have been discriminated against previously.

I am quite happy that this could be seen as controversial but in all honesty I am growing tired of how everything has been developing over the past few years. We cannot change the past and influence how people were treated, that mainly being women’s roles. But remember life was different years ago and women were seen as being second to men. I’ve always been in a male dominated world with football, so just come to accept certain things. We are now getting films that are supposed to be historical but then changed to make the female roles bigger and that annoys me in terms of story. Men have got a lot of hate through the MeToo movement and this has transferred into film as well.
