The Bridges of Madison County

I absolutely love this scene in The Bridges of Madison County! Easily one of my favourite romantic dramas, with so many heartbreaking scenes!

A look back at 2008 in film!

I thought it was about time to take a little look back at the world of film a whole decade ago, yes really we have had Heath Ledger’s Joker for that long now! I was seriously hoping for a re-release at the cinema in all honesty, felt it would have been perfect to celebrate the 10th anniversary.

Why So Serious? 

I am going to take a look at some of the films that I enjoyed most from 2008, this might be looking back to having seen them for the first time at the cinema or just catching up with them later. It’s actually quite scary when you look back 10 years and not realise which films were actually released then and we can now call old. I would think most of them are standing the test of time pretty well in all honesty.

Oscars 2018 – Best Actress

The top award an actress can hope to win which also means Meryl Streep will somehow be involved! I think this year we have been given five fantastic performances which are all very different and from very different types of films. That certainly shows that this has been a great year for the roles women have been getting, especially considering the very negative time Hollywood has had. This will be a very good celebration for talent and roles.

Let’s have one last look at the actresses who have been nominated for performances in a leading role . . .

Oscars 2018 – Best Picture

Again this year nine films have been nominated for the top award of Best Picture, always creating good talking points around film as people can often never understand why some were nominated and then go onto win. I think this year is actually pretty strong and a decent range, but I will get more into each individual film.

Let’s have one last look at each of the films that have been nominated . . .

7 Greatest Performances: Julia Roberts

Oscar Winner
Oscar winner for Erin Brockovich

You may or not be aware that Julia Roberts is my all time favourite actress (Sorry Meryl/Catherine Zeta Jones) so I thought I would start a new series of blog posts 7 Greatest Performances and who better to start with than Julia Roberts? This will be looking at the best performances from different actors rather than judging just the film. I thought this would create some very good and interesting lists, as the greatest performances are not necessarily in the best films. This comes on the back of seeing Wonder over the weekend which I thought she was just amazing in!
