Top 10 – Films I Caught Up With in 2021!

I actually really enjoy putting this “caught up with” list together each year (ok most years) mainly because I know people will wonder how I got to that year without seeing some truly classic and quite frankly outstanding films! While I call it a top 10, its not put in any particular order and has been filtered down from 40 that I thought were worthy to be included in the long list!

Prepare to be utterly amazed with some of my first time viewings in 2021 …

News: King Kong To Roar Again At Universal

Oooo I think that sounds like it would be really cool 🙂

Bosses at Los Angeles movie landmark Universal Studios are to rebuild the King Kong tourist attraction that was destroyed in a 2008 fire which briefly closed the themepark.

The blaze claimed a handful of sets familiar to backlot tour visitors, but the New York street scene, housed in a hangar, was the most famous victim of the fire, which was sparked by company employees using blowtorches to apply roof shingles.

The studio tour was briefly closed but has since been reconfigured to avoid the worst hit fire damaged areas.

And now Universal bosses plan to rebuild the King Kong set ready for a grand re-opening next summer, as part of a digitally upgraded backlot tour.

Universal Studios publicist Audrey Eig says, “King Kong has been an integral part of the studio tour for years. We are happy to be able to bring him back. No one can destroy the great ape.”

The set originally opened in 1986 and has become one of the themepark’s most famous attractions. The new-look King Kong set will be based on that of the 2005 film, which starred Jack Black and Naomi Watts.
