This is something I have been putting together for quite a long time now and I have held off posting it or even attempting to start the blog post in fear that I have forgotten and somehow missed a favourite film from the list. Barring in mind I got up to 72 films and then had to cut it down to the 50. I would like to make clear these are my favourite films, some might have happened to win Oscars as well and some certainly have not at all. The way I have decided on my favourites is the sheer joy they bring and the number of rewatches I have had over the years. While I have listed 1-50 a lot of them can be shifted around and changed with each other. It is going to highlight my love for musicals and for certain actors and actresses! I doubt it will contain many surprises though!Read More »

I signed up for Letterboxd way back in 2015. Yes, really! Although I didn’t actually start using it properly until the end of 2019 and therefore 2020 was the first full year that I logged every single film that I watched. Albeit not as many Cinema films as I would have liked, which leads me on to saying during the lockdown/furlough stage I spent a lot of time logging in the diary all of the films I had seen at the Cinema dating back to 2003 (yes, I still have my Lord of the Rings: Return of the King ticket). This obviously took a few weeks as I also logged the films I have review on here as well. So as you imagine a lot of time was taken to do this. It gives some amazing all-time stats though.
Here we can take a look at my 2020 stats and I am sure no one will be surprised with my most watched films either!Read More »

THIS POST CONTAINS AVENGERS: ENDGAME SPOILERS
Now that the ban has lifted on talking about Endgame, this was timed for the Spider-Man: Far From Home Trailer as it is the first film after and obviously the trailer contains spoilers. I have seen Endgame twice so far at the cinema with a plan to see it again tomorrow and I am possibly looking at it becoming my most watched film at the cinema if I manage to get five viewings in!
