2016 at the Cinema!

2016 was another good year for films released at the cinema and I think the standard was pretty good, I managed to miss a lot of the films that seemed to be regarded as the worst of the year which is always a big bonus!

This time last year (and the year before) I was celebrating a record-breaking total. You know what I have only gone and done it again setting a new record this year, beating last year by a whole 12 films! Which I think is pretty impressive although I seem to be treating it very much like a game now in trying to beat the previous year. Even monthly trying to outdo the year before. I was so close to 80 and I think that will therefore be my target in 2017. Good job I have an Unlimited Card at Cineworld to be able to do this!

London Trip (4-7th Oct 16)

img_0354_zpsgh0s0nsd

As you probably noticed I went to London for a nice 3 day break last week, mainly because I had tickets for Harry Potter and the Cursed Child something which I had booked nearly a full year before the actual date. I just so happened to book this on the same day that the BFI London Film Festival was going to be on, great timing! My original plan was to stay for 3 nights and get in as many films (and theatre) as possible. But due to cost I changed my mind on this as the hotel was pretty expensive.

A United Kingdom (2016) Review

The dramatic and true interracial love story, between Seretse Khama and Ruth Williams which divided two nations when their actions had the potential to tear everything apart. The British government actually having the biggest impact as they look to stabilise relationships with South Africa.

As the BFI London Film Festival starts tonight I thought it would be a good idea to put a post together to preview some of the films that will be making an appearance at the festival and the different Gala/UK Premiere’s happening over the next 11 days. It really is a fantastic event that takes over the many cinemas in Leicester Square with plenty of star acting power in attendance.

I am super excited to announce that I am going to be attending parts of the 2016 London Film Festival. It is taking place from 5-16th October 2016. I will be in London from the 5th to the 8th October. Although the 5th will be taken up by Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Part I and II.

That night will also see the start of the festival with the Premiere of A United Kingdom staring Rosamund Pike and David Oyelowo, so hopefully I will get tickets to see that one on a different day (depending how scheduling works). It sounds like it is going to be a good emotional film to watch.

BFI London Film Festival 2015

Pretty good timing to have a trip down to London and that it wasn’t intentionally for the BFI London Film Festival. Yes I know it totally should have been, but that was not the case. Any way a couple of weeks ago I had a little look at the films that were going to be on while I was in the capital, I must have totally missed that The Lady in the Van had Gala screenings. 

But I am going to see a show tonight so not going to get to attend the full on Gala event, being able to see the red carpet they were setting up as I passed earlier. All is not lost though as I have got a ticket to go and see the film at 11:30am tomorrow morning. Fitting it in before heading to see Nicole Kidman in Photograph 51.
