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.
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.
For the first time in 2018 we will see the Newcastle International Film Festival take place at many venues around Newcastle and Gateshead. Something which I find very exciting for the North East considering we get missed out for so many things.
The NIFF will be opened with a special screening of Get Carter along with a Q&A with the director and a VIP afterparty. What better film to open a film festival in Newcastle?
Dates: Thursday 29th March – Sunday 1st April 2018
This falls over the Easter Bank Holiday weekend which should be a great opportunity to get many people to attend!
I recently created a new logo for Let’s Go To The Movies which you can see below. I then decided to set up a campaign on Teespring which allows you to sell different products. I thought that was the perfect chance to use the logo and create some merchandise that people could buy!
Into the fifth month of 2017 and I have managed to increase the number of films I got to see at the cinema back up to 10 this month, which actually includes two National Theatre Live productions of plays direct from the West End.
Cineworld Unlimited Card is £17.90 per month and I saw 8 films that qualified for the month which meant £2.23 per film. I had to pay for the Theatre productions £8.10 each, without an Unlimited card this is £16.99.
