Musical Moments – Joker dancing to Prince!

I totally forgot just how impressive this scene is from Batman (1989) and with Jack Nicholson in the role as the Joker doing a fantastic dance to Partyman by Prince. It really is just one of those scenes where the music fights so perfectly with the characters and film as a whole.

Batman – 1989!

Tonight starting at 7:30pm I am heading to the cinema to see the 1989 Batman film on the big screen. Something that really does excite me considering my love for this film and Batman/Bruce Wayne. As much as I love the Nolan trilogy this was the film that really kicked off my love for Batman watching it as a kid and adoring it. Baring in mind I had not long turned 2 years old when it was released in the cinema I am very much looking forward to seeing it on the big screen after all this time!

Recreating the Movie – The Dark Knight

Tonight I went back to the cinema after almost 18 incredibly long weeks and went to see The Dark Knight for the fourth time on the big screen but the very first time in IMAX. With so many more home viewings over the past 12 years since its release in 2008, it felt like the perfect film to welcome the cinema back into my life, had to go to Odeon with Cineworld pushing the opening date back to the end of this month. Although for IMAX I have to visit Odeon, it is only the third time I have seen a film in IMAX and it really is the most incredible way to watch a film.

Anyway for recreating the movie and the occasion of The Joker in his IMAX glory I purchased this snood/face mask for the film and here is my attempt of being the joker! I am certainly looking forward to using it during the winter for my runs!

Cinema First – The 450 Films For UK Cinemas!

Today Cinema First released a list of films that can be used at cinemas when they reopen in July. With Cineworld being the first to announce a date for England on 10th July they will then need films to show. The list has a very wide variety of genres as well as from all decades. I personally hope to see a lot of older films on the big screen for the first time, I don’t want recent ones given a release! Let’s appreciate some amazing films on the big screen for what could well be the very first time (Yes Casablanca and Some Like It Hot I am talking about you, not forgetting my all time favourite When Harry Met Sally!)

Oscars 2020 – Acting Winners!

I always look forward to the picture of the four acting winners, but for whatever reason this year (so far) I have only managed to find this one with Joaquin Phoenix (Joker), Renee Zellweger (Judy) and Brad Pitt (Once Upon a Time in Hollywood). I mean where is Laura Dern?!?! As she has photos with Renee?

Oscars 2020 – Best Picture

This year was certainly some kind of record of watching all the Best Picture nominees before the end of January, I mean even when the nominations were announced I only had Parasite left to see. Hopefully that is a good sign for the future and allowing better UK release dates for the awards buzz films. It can easily get frustrating at times and this year only one film out of the nine was a film I disliked intensely. I adore and love Jojo Rabbit, so much I have set a new cinema viewing record of five for that amazing film. With that I really liked and enjoyed the rest of the films. Which I guess is not bad at all and I feel that this years nominees are a lot stronger than last years! Just incase you haven’t heard about these films enough lets take one final look at them before the Academy Awards take place on Sunday!
