Oscars 2017 – Best Actress

The best actress race has been heating up and everyone thought it was easily Portman’s but Stone has been getting a lot of awards for her performance in La La Land so maybe not as straight forward as everyone first thought. Can you ever really count out Streep? The most nominated actress of all time?

Don’t forget to let me know who you would like to see win and who you think will win (if that is different of course). Read More »

2016 at the Cinema!

2016 was another good year for films released at the cinema and I think the standard was pretty good, I managed to miss a lot of the films that seemed to be regarded as the worst of the year which is always a big bonus!

This time last year (and the year before) I was celebrating a record-breaking total. You know what I have only gone and done it again setting a new record this year, beating last year by a whole 12 films! Which I think is pretty impressive although I seem to be treating it very much like a game now in trying to beat the previous year. Even monthly trying to outdo the year before. I was so close to 80 and I think that will therefore be my target in 2017. Good job I have an Unlimited Card at Cineworld to be able to do this!
