Having had the pleasure of going to the real house when I was in Chicago it would be outstanding to also have the LEGO version.
The level of detail in which LEGO place into their products is simply breathtaking and something that really does impressive me so very much!

On what is his 77th birthday Joe Pesci is an Oscar nominee tonight for his incredible role in The Irishman, which he should be winning for in my honest opinion! Everyone’s favourite burglar who had trouble not swearing on the Home Alone set!
This year the Best Supporting Actor category is filled with familiar faces! Which is not a bad thing at all and considering all of the nominees are over 50 showing that men are getting good roles much older now as well. Anthony Hopkins 82, Al Pacino 79, Joe Pesci 77, Tom Hanks 63 and Brad Pitt 56! Now isn’t that very impressive!
Here are the Male performances that have made my top 25 for the 2019 films that I managed to see throughout the year. This will include some 2018 films by date but due to the UK release dates they were available for this list. I actually had 45 on the long list so to cut it down it was a very tough ask! Some amazing films and therefore performances in 2019!
