Sky Movies in March/April

I use Sky Movies a lot to catch up with films that I missed on the cinema release but also as an introduction to some other films that did not manage to get a cinema release. With the On Demand options as well they really do have a massive amount of films available to watch both old and new.

I thought I would start blogging more about which films are coming soon to Sky Movies for the UK based followers of Let’s Go To The Movies, making it easier for you to find a place with the latest Sky Movies news!

Inside OutReview – From Friday 25th March

inside-out-2015-02-1_zpsske3ruhw

A truly fantastic film from Pixar and really will tug at your heartstrings. If you did not see this one at the cinema then you really do have to make the effort to watch it on Sky Movies when it is available! What better to watch over the Easter Bank Holiday weekend?

San AndreasReview – Available Now

By no means the best film in the world but a great addition to the disaster film genre with The Rock as engaging as ever really pulling out all of the stops in this one!

Oscars 2016 – Nominations

2014-01-16-Academy-Awards-Oscars-Generic-jpg

Here we go the nominations for the 2016 Oscars!

Still seen as the biggest awards in film and most prestigious, maybe a couple of surprises in terms of not getting a nomination but the majority is probably expected. Maybe the Academy should release the nominations before the rest of the awards and it wouldn’t be as easy to try and predict them? I will be doing plenty of posts for the big awards once I have seen the rest of the films, we have a busy couple of weeks coming up in the UK!

Top 10 – Best Films of 2015

This has been a really difficult list to put together this year as initially picking my best films from 2015 I had 17 in contention to make my top 10, which I think is very surprising but also pleasing to know that I actually enjoyed and liked a lot of films in 2015. It was rather difficult to narrow it down and I am sure this could have seen the films changed around depending on when I completed the list. Something which I am thinking having a running ranking system for 2016.

Didn’t manage to make the top 10 but were very close . . . Inside Out, Kingsman: The Secret Service, The Lady in the Van, Suffragette, Ricki and the Flash, The Martian, The Lobster.
