Considering the way 2020 went with the cinema closed for most of the year, even when they reopened the new films being offered were few and far between. Although I cannot really complain too much with getting to see all three Lord of the Rings extended editions twice something I had wanted to do for many years. So this year I have had to combine the small number of cinema films which include some 2019 films but due to UK release dates qualify for my top 10 best films of 2020 list! Then combined with films then added to streaming sites and catching up with some before the end of the year. At one point I was unsure if I could even pick a top 10, so it could be my most interesting yet!Read More »

After picking up Outstanding British Film at the start of the awards show it has done the double and picked up the Best Film – 1917!
2020 is the 15th anniversary of the BAFTA having the Rising Star Award which is voted for by the public. Starting in 2006 known as the Orange Rising Star Award and then since 2013 the EE Rising Star Award, this is due to sponsorship and pretty much helps the award with publicity and getting the public involved in the voting for the winner.
Over the years as I have become more and more obsessed with films I know more about the nominees which in all honesty makes me feel very special and at times very geeky. Which I personally love and am very proud of, I felt coming up to the 15th year it was very important to take a look back at not only the winners from each year but the other nominees as well. The list is very impressive and it feels as though someone at BAFTA can certainly pick out rising stars in the best possible way, the nominees are chosen regardless of gender, nationality and whether they have made a breakthrough in television, film or both.
It has been announced who will be attending the BAFTA awards on Sunday and this certainly means I am one very happy fan girl at the moment with so many of my favourites due to attend!
Who from the list excites you the most? So many amazing British actors in attendance and I personally cannot wait to see what Roman Griffin Davis will be wearing this time and wondering if he will have a small reunion with his awards show best friend Taron Egerton?

We are back to the Secret Unlimited Screening and now up to number 13, after Cineworld branching out to a secret screening that was for everyone.
As always remember that while Cineworld list the film as 15 and running time of 90 minutes, this is never the correct running time and 15 is just incase meaning it could actually be anything from a U (Incredibles 2) up to a 15!
Let’s take a look at the possible films that this secret screening could be. It certainly WILL NOT be Star Wars so if you go expecting that please just stay home!
The official trailer for Sam Mendes’ 1917 a World War I film that has an outstanding cast Colin Firth, Benedict Cumberbatch, George MacKay, Dean-Charles Chapman, Richard Madden, Andrew Scott, Daniel Mays and more.
