This is something I have been putting together for quite a long time now and I have held off posting it or even attempting to start the blog post in fear that I have forgotten and somehow missed a favourite film from the list. Barring in mind I got up to 72 films and then had to cut it down to the 50. I would like to make clear these are my favourite films, some might have happened to win Oscars as well and some certainly have not at all. The way I have decided on my favourites is the sheer joy they bring and the number of rewatches I have had over the years. While I have listed 1-50 a lot of them can be shifted around and changed with each other. It is going to highlight my love for musicals and for certain actors and actresses! I doubt it will contain many surprises though!Read More »
This isn’t the first time we have heard of people wanting James Bond to suddenly become a woman. I personally do not understand why and quite shocked that Pierce Brosnan has been the latest to come out and support Jane Bond as it is being branded about. I seriously do not understand why. Why should a male character be changed to female when we could just have a brand new franchise and character made up? Stop trying to make everything go overboard towards women. Something I have been rather annoyed about in recent years to be honest.
I want good interesting female characters not some gender swapped Bond. I mean come on as much as I enjoy a good Bond film the character is very outdated in terms of mannerisms which is probably how Jason Bourne and Ethan Hunt (Bourne and Mission Impossible) have overtaken the action in the films. So why can’t we have a better Bond instead? Don’t just change the gender in an attempt to be politically correct, make the male version better and more relevant to 2019. We don’t hear people wanting Bourne or Hunt to be made female?
Jean Grey is brought into the very complicated X-Men world we currently have, but when she accidentally gets some extra powers she has the ability to turn into a Dark Phoenix.
Each year I find this list harder to put together considering I feel I make better choices when it comes to which films that I find myself watching. But obviously you are still going to come across some pretty awful films. I would just like to put a reminder on that this is obviously just my opinion! (You can check which films I saw at the cinema during 2018 here and 2018 films tagged here). This all done by UK release date as well!
Here are the films that made it onto my top 10 worst of 2018 list . . .
When ballerina Dominika Egorova is brutally injured her strange Uncle gives her only one choice, become a Sparrow as part of the Russian intelligence service and train to use her body as a weapon. Her first mission is to target the CIA agent who is a big threat with his Russian insider.
This list is getting tougher to put together which I think means that I manage to avoid the bad films that are released during the year, that being said though I still did see my share of pretty awful films. The list probably could be changed with any of the films taking the top spot so I guess its more just the ten films I thought were the worst in 2017 in all honesty, rather than a count down list!
A married couple’s relationship is tested when uninvited guest arrive at their home, causing the woman to adjust everything she has been working on.
I wasn’t going to mention that it is Valentine’s Day . . . Honest. But every year I cannot help but come up with something to post about. Last year I went for it with some huge posts and put together 100 Romantic Films but if you are more cynical than that here is a Top 10 of Anti Valentine’s Day Films!
No better way to start off than with this incredibly amazing (and soppy) quote from one of my all time favourite films ever. You cannot help but love When Harry Met Sally!
A spacecraft which is travelling to a distant new colony planet has 5000 passengers as well as hundreds of crew. It takes 120 years to get there and everyone is due to wake up a few weeks before. But when Jim Preston wakes up with 90 years to go something has gone very wrong . . .
