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!
In the late 1960s into the early 1970s Robert Graysmith a San Francisco cartoonist becomes obsessed with the Zodiac Killer and turns amateur detective into the mystery man who terrorises Northern California with his killing, without any real patterns.
Gary Wallace and Wyatt Donnelly have no luck with girls and are ridiculed at school. One night they use a computer programme to create their perfect woman. When something crazy happens and she comes to life she becomes a nightmare for the pair!
Here are the Male performances that have made my top 25 for the 2019 films that I managed to see throughout the year. This will include some 2018 films by date but due to the UK release dates they were available for this list. I actually had 45 on the long list so to cut it down it was a very tough ask! Some amazing films and therefore performances in 2019!
Taron Egerton as Elton John in Rocketman from Paramount Pictures.
