This is something I have been putting together for quite a long time now and I have held off posting it or even attempting to start the blog post in fear that I have forgotten and somehow missed a favourite film from the list. Barring in mind I got up to 72 films and then had to cut it down to the 50. I would like to make clear these are my favourite films, some might have happened to win Oscars as well and some certainly have not at all. The way I have decided on my favourites is the sheer joy they bring and the number of rewatches I have had over the years. While I have listed 1-50 a lot of them can be shifted around and changed with each other. It is going to highlight my love for musicals and for certain actors and actresses! I doubt it will contain many surprises though!Read More »

I signed up for Letterboxd way back in 2015. Yes, really! Although I didn’t actually start using it properly until the end of 2019 and therefore 2020 was the first full year that I logged every single film that I watched. Albeit not as many Cinema films as I would have liked, which leads me on to saying during the lockdown/furlough stage I spent a lot of time logging in the diary all of the films I had seen at the Cinema dating back to 2003 (yes, I still have my Lord of the Rings: Return of the King ticket). This obviously took a few weeks as I also logged the films I have review on here as well. So as you imagine a lot of time was taken to do this. It gives some amazing all-time stats though.
Here we can take a look at my 2020 stats and I am sure no one will be surprised with my most watched films either!Read More »
It wasn’t possible to do all three in one day so I am back at the cinema again to see the final part of the greatest trilogy of all time. Return of the King, which has about twenty five different endings.
That’s right I am straight from Fellowship into Two Towers to witness the Battle of Helms deep in all its extended glory on that big screen!
I have waited what feels like forever to witness the Extended Editions of The Lord of the Rings on the big screen. This is a very special moment as I am now sat in the cinema waiting for this film to start. Fellowship is the film that made me really fall in love with films and how they were made. So basically if it wasn’t for this film I very much doubt Let’s Go To The Movies would be around today!
Super exciting news that on Sunday 5pm UK time we will be getting an amazing Lord of the Rings reunion thanks to Josh Gad!
Sean Astin, Elijah Wood, Dominic Monaghan, Billy Boyd, Orlando Bloom and Ian McKellen show how amazing this is going to be in the preview alone. This could well be the best thing to happen in lockdown!
As a lifelong ringer I am so excited for this it has to be said! Fellowship of the Ring is the very film that really sparked my love for cinema and movies!
So with my epic crusade to the Caribbean on my rewatch of the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise it suddenly dawned on me that Orlando Bloom and Bill Nighy both starred in Dead Man’s Chest and At World’s End together. So a quick image search came up with this fantastic photo of them!
