Considering the way 2020 went with the cinema closed for most of the year, even when they reopened the new films being offered were few and far between. Although I cannot really complain too much with getting to see all three Lord of the Rings extended editions twice something I had wanted to do for many years. So this year I have had to combine the small number of cinema films which include some 2019 films but due to UK release dates qualify for my top 10 best films of 2020 list! Then combined with films then added to streaming sites and catching up with some before the end of the year. At one point I was unsure if I could even pick a top 10, so it could be my most interesting yet!Read More »

This is always the biggest talking point of any Oscar ceremony and which film will walk away with the title of being Best Picture.

This year I feel its been a very strange and odd awards season, with that I don’t really have a film that I totally love out of these eight nominated films. None in this years batch I totally love and I don’t particularly hate with a passion either. I just feel rather neutral towards them. I am hoping that by putting together this blog post that I might be able to make my mind up a little bit more. I just feel as though it is a very weak year in terms of the quality of the films. We shall soon see, so let’s take one more look at the eight films up for the most prestigious honour in film . . .
Awards season is in full flow now and everything is gearing towards the Academy Award nominations and then ceremony.
