Top 25 – Female Performances in 2018

Here are the 25 performances that made it onto my list . . .

But here are the 25 male performances that impressed me the most in films from 2018 that I managed to watch over the course of the year.

Take a look at who made the final list . . .

7 Films That Disappointed Me in 2018

Sometimes the hype surrounding a film can build it up so much that you are therefore left disappointed.

Top 10 – Films I Caught Up With in 2018

Throughout 2018 I managed to catch up with 48 older films and have decided to put together a top 10 list out of those films.

I am happy that I managed to get 48 first time watches of films that does not include new cinema releases. With the films I have chosen for my top 10 list I pretty much was left wondering why I had never seen the film before!

Goodbye FilmStruck!

0FDBE9B9-AF8A-4753-9A95-3075132A28C9

Sad news broke yesterday that streaming service FilmStruck would be closing at the end of November. On the 29th November 2018 to be exact, I am rather shocked about this news as a few days ago I received an email informing me of which films were going to be added to the UK version for November.

The service has always offered high quality and well-regarded films from the Criterion Collection and TCM. All of which are not easily available in the UK, it is such a huge blow for classic film screening. As much as I love the services offered by Netflix and Amazon Prime Video, FilmStruck offered something a little different. You don’t have to spend as much time searching for a film that will be outstanding on FilmStruck, Netflix and Amazon while finding a hidden gem, I have also watched some awful films on them.

Actors in Family Film Roles!

A couple of nights ago now I turned my TV on and The Flintstones was on with John Goodman as Fred, this was a film I can remember a little from my childhood and when it was first released. It them made me think about other actors that I see from these “kids” films and at the time had no idea that some of these were Oscar nominees or winners and even catching up with their older films I cannot help but remember them from the films that I watched during my younger days!

This is a blog post I have thought about putting together in the past and I have tried to come up with as many actors as possible who I have typecast in what were more family/child aimed films. Feel free to have a think about which actors you still see in this way as well! It is always quite interesting to think about which films you associate with an actor and it is usually the first one you see them in.
