“I guess I’ll see you in the movies” – An Ode to Cinema

Lockdown and the Coronavirus/Covid-19 pandemic has brought many challenges for everyone, along with so many issues. Personally for me the cinema being closed has been one of the toughest adjustments, while many people may not actually understand this and see the cinema as somewhat of a luxury and somewhere they only go every so often, maybe even every couple of months to see the latest big blockbuster films. That is not the case for myself, I go two/three times a week and sometimes even more depending on what is being released. Managing to balance this in with work and occasionally being able to have a double feature with two films straight in a row.

Why do I like going so often?

Billy Crystal on Twitter!

E9FCA763-F687-47FA-B1E7-086BD5979886

That’s right the legend that is Billy Crystal acknowledge me on Twitter! The review of his film Standing Up, Falling Down (Review) which is a fantastic gem of a film premiered on Sky Cinema earlier this week. I never in a million years thought he would ever see my tweet about the film and I seriously could not believe it when I clicked on my notifications and saw this quote tweet! Considering my intense love for When Harry Met Sally I feel this is going to be my all time greatest moment EVER on Twitter, I cannot think about how this could be topped at all.

Something I will always wonder will be if he clicked on my profile and saw that he is in fact part of my header photo?

Blogathon: The Film That Started It All

The Film That Started It All Blogathon

We all have that one truly special film, the one that really made your love for film and cinema so deep. I thought it would be a fantastic idea to share this with each other and it could really create some positive thoughts and discussion. 

The film does not have to be the greatest ever made, just the one that you relate to as your biggest influence in terms of loving film and cinema! I have had this idea for quite a while now and after so many negative comments and attitudes on Twitter recently I felt we all needed do think positively about the films we love! 

Dates: April 19th-22nd 2019 

This gives more than a month to get involved and I thought it would be ideal to do this over the long Easter bank holiday weekend. So if you want to get involved please comment below and with which film you will be writing about (for this one it really doesn’t matter if someone else is writing about the same film). If you let me know which film you are going to be writing about I can put together your own graphic! 

Content
This can be anything you want really in terms of format as well, if you want to do it as a list or an in-depth post detailing everything you loved and hopefully still love about the film. 

Please share this on your blog to help grow the announcement and get fellow bloggers to sign up!

It is something that I found extremely interesting in looking at the different breakdown in stats, come on we all love the stats don’t we bloggers?
