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 »
One day I might stop posting and spamming about the Jojo Rabbit cast, but that is not today. As Taika Waititi won an Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay he also directed and starred in the film bringing out an incredible performance from child actor Roman Griffin Davis! This photo is a truly lovely moment between director and the young actor, not forgetting the Oscar as well!
That’s right 11 whole years of blogging and writing about films that I love, like and sometimes hate. My blogaversary and something that I am very proud of growing and still being so obsessed with film!
Recently my biggest film love has come in the form of Jojo Rabbit! So here’s Jojo and Elsa dancing to remind everyone that when you are free you get to dance!
The young Jojo Rabbit star (who should be nominated tonight in all honesty) is totally stealing the red carpet!

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!
Last night the 25th Critics Choice Awards took place and with the Oscar nominations coming later on today this could certainly confirm somethings when it comes to those nominations. Take a look at the 2020 winners:
Ford v Ferrari
WINNER: Once Upon a Time in Hollywood
I am totally having a huge fangirl time over Jojo Rabbit which was my number one film of 2019 and really hope it is going to pick up many awards! Here are some of favourite gifs from the film, you have probably seen a lot of them on twitter!
2019 has been a very high quality year for film and I feel this has been the toughest list to put together in the whole ten years of Let’s Go The Movies. Which is certainly a very good and amazing thing for cinema and films. Not only have this years best come from cinema releases but Netflix have really come into the picture with some incredible films with amazing performances. With my list it might feel a little bit all over the place with some of the films that are on it due to UK release dates, but also take into consideration that I have also been lucky enough to see some previews of films as well.
I had 22 films that were on my list for Best Films of 2019 and it has been very tough to knock that down to the 10 that have then made up this list. Just missing out (Brittany Runs a Marathon, Can You Ever Forgive Me?, Klaus, Judy, Crawl)
