It’s not something that I really get involved with but I thought it would be a great time to have a look through some of my favourite romantic film quotes, as let’s face it everything that is said in the movies is just so much better than what people say in real life right?
For the 5th year running I saw in the New Year watching one of my favourite films When Harry Met Sally. I was a few minutes off the timing for Harry to arrive to Sally for midnight and one of the greatest speeches ever!
“When you realise you want to spend the rest of you life with someone, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible”
I then took a photo of this and tweeted it at Billy Crystal and just look what happened ❤️🥰 2022 has peaked early!
I wish everyone who supports Let’s Go To The Movies the best possible 2022, and thank you to the legend that is Billy Crystal!
With New Years Eve falling on a Friday this year I have decided to put on a special event of #FridayFakeCinemaClub. This one is a little bit different though as I have a suggest start time which can be local to your country for the best experience but just watching this absolute favourite film of mine and tweeting about it would be just great as well! Mainly because the finale moment occurs at midnight on New Years Eve!
Use the hashtag #FridayFakeCinemaClub on Twitter to join the conversation of what is one of the best romantic comedies of all time and in my top 3 favourite films!
Start Time: 10:35pm Streaming Service: Amazon Prime Video & Sky Cinema (both in UK)
Nat Serling is a US Army Officer who is dealing with a deadly mistake he made and is given an investigation to check how worthy Karen Walden a commander is for the Medal of Honour after she died in combat, pushing his own guilt to the limits.
When Kate’s fiancee Charlie suddenly calls her from Paris to tell her that he met someone else who he now plans on marrying, she must overcome her fear of flying to try and win him back. Sat next to Luc Teyssier on the plane would bring her more bad luck and drama than she thought possible.
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!
Today marks 12 years since starting Let’s Go To The Movies and in that time I have blogged a lot about the films I truly adore and love, although also come across I don’t like and sometimes hate. Isn’t that one of the best things about watching films though? I certainly think so the discussion around films you just got and the ones you just didn’t.
Thanks to everyone for the support over these past 12 years, it has seen Let’s Go To The Movies make a UK Top 10 Film Blog four years in a row, but since been a couple of years now since making that list. I’ve done well though going for this long on just a little hobby right?

I thought this year I would celebrate with Harry and Sally, one of the greatest film moments of all time, considering it took them 12 years and 3 months to get together and married after their first meeting.
That’s right today Cineworld announced that Cinemas in England are scheduled to open on 10th July, obviously this is provisional but I certainly see it as a light at the end of the tunnel. The cinema is the place I have missed the most since lockdown and I really cannot wait to see a film on the big screen again!
Felt like celebrating with some images from movie scenes where they go to the cinema! Can you name all the films?
That’s right I am talking about the 1998 romantic comedy starring Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks, which for as long as I can remember I have totally adored and loved. I think they are even better together in this one than Sleepless in Seattle. It’s one of those delightful little films that you can put on when your feeling a little bit low and feel so much better because of watching it. I even went through a phase many years ago of watching it over and over again, you know as soon as you’ve finished watching it putting it back on again!
So with plenty of passion and love for this pretty much perfect Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan collaboration, I have put together this gushing piece and hope that others feel the same way about You’ve Got Mail as surely it cannot actually be hated when it does so much good?
