You are probably already aware that I am a huge fan of Sir Ian McKellen and the legendary actor turns 80 years old today! With no signs of slowing down having been in the West End last year, still starring in films and currently on an epic UK tour to celebrate turning 80! I will be heading to see it in August when he comes to Newcastle!
The Film That Started It All Blogathon
We all have that one truly special film, the one that really made your love for film and cinema so deep. I thought it would be a fantastic idea to share this with each other and it could really create some positive thoughts and discussion.
The film does not have to be the greatest ever made, just the one that you relate to as your biggest influence in terms of loving film and cinema! I have had this idea for quite a while now and after so many negative comments and attitudes on Twitter recently I felt we all needed do think positively about the films we love!
Dates: April 19th-22nd 2019
This gives more than a month to get involved and I thought it would be ideal to do this over the long Easter bank holiday weekend. So if you want to get involved please comment below and with which film you will be writing about (for this one it really doesn’t matter if someone else is writing about the same film). If you let me know which film you are going to be writing about I can put together your own graphic!
This can be anything you want really in terms of format as well, if you want to do it as a list or an in-depth post detailing everything you loved and hopefully still love about the film.
Please share this on your blog to help grow the announcement and get fellow bloggers to sign up!
I have just set up a lovely new email address which I feel is much better for myself and the site!
If you would like to contact me for any reason then please use this new email address, I still have my old ones running but I will be looking to transfer across to this one!
I would love to receive:
- Screeners to review
- Theatre tickets to then review the show
- Invites to cinema screenings
- Information about new films
- Possible sponsors
- Advertisement enquiries
February 9th 2009 . . . That was the date I made my first ever blog post and as you can probably tell 10 years later it is still very much all about films! While Let’s Go To The Movies came a little bit later (7th June 2009) in terms of the name my adventure on here started 10 years ago to this date.
Christian Bale is quite possibly one of the greatest British actors of all time. Causing chaos at the Golden Globes when some people didn’t realise that he is Welsh! I found that very amusing but also confirmation that he is therefore a truly outstanding actor! He has been nominated four times for an Oscar-winning for his supporting role in The Fighter.
He is very well-known for his serious method acting and really becoming the character. This has resulted in serious weight loss and weight gain over the years to achieve a totally different look. Not forgetting his working out to become Batman for Christopher Nolan!
He is certainly one of my favourite actors and here are my choices for his 7 Greatest performances . . . (So far) . . .
This Monday in January is seen as being Blue Monday the most depressing day of the year, that is due to the festive period being more than over and struggling through January still waiting to be paid! Therefore I decided to put together a list of 7 feel good films which I totally love.
Isn’t escapism and being made to feel happy one of the main reasons we watch so many films? Well, it certainly is for me so I thought what better day than the most depressing of the year to think about the films that make me very happy!
