Andy Sachs is a smart new graduate who wants nothing more than to be a journalist in New York, she takes an assistant job for Miranda Priestly who is a very demanding editor at Runaway a high fashion magazine. Claiming she has no interest in fashion it is a very interesting choice for Andy.

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!
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!

I adore musicals and missing the theatre so much this year that this musical coming to Netflix on 11th December is pretty exciting in all honesty. It certainly looks to be a brilliant musical treat, so let’s just take a few moments to appreciate the joy in these character posters!
I totally adore musicals and theatre and lets face it totally missing that live singing and dancing that is so loved. So with Netflix having The Prom coming in December this is very exciting for sure! Especially given Meryl Streep is in it, who doesn’t adore her? We have a truly outstanding teaser trailer:
That’s right another year old and now a very old 33!
So I have decided to continue what I did for last year and see which actresses won Oscars when they were 33 years old and it just so happens my absolute favourites Julia Roberts in Erin Brockovich and Catherine Zeta Jones in Chicago we’re both 33 when they picked up Oscars!
