BAFTA 2015 – Nominations

The nominations for the 2015 BAFTA awards have been announced this morning and i have to say I am pretty impressed with the choices. Some are probably a little bit of a shock but we must remember that a slight bias towards British actors and actresses is often shown with the BAFTAs not a bad thing in my opinion. Just showing that they appreciate our own talent. So far I have seen nearly all of the films, just a couple to catch up with. They come out over the next couple of weeks as well!

Top 10 – Missed Films of 2014

I always feel like this is the important list of 2014 films to do first, as then everyone knows that I missed some films. A number of reasons for this, that they were unfortunately only on at the cinema for a week and it come and went too quickly to catch it. That I was just too busy and picked other films (it happens and often leads to bad choices) or in some cases that a particular film just doesn’t get released in my area. I have this year attend the cinema quite a lot on my own on an evening, something I never thought I would do, but at the end of the day I am not bothered at all what people think. If I had been bothered I would have missed some cracking films this year such as Boyhood, St. Vincent and Interstellar all of which have a very good chance of making it into my top 10 films of 2014!
