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 »

Lockdown and the Coronavirus/Covid-19 pandemic has brought many challenges for everyone, along with so many issues. Personally for me the cinema being closed has been one of the toughest adjustments, while many people may not actually understand this and see the cinema as somewhat of a luxury and somewhere they only go every so often, maybe even every couple of months to see the latest big blockbuster films. That is not the case for myself, I go two/three times a week and sometimes even more depending on what is being released. Managing to balance this in with work and occasionally being able to have a double feature with two films straight in a row.
Why do I like going so often?
That’s right today Cineworld announced that Cinemas in England are scheduled to open on 10th July, obviously this is provisional but I certainly see it as a light at the end of the tunnel. The cinema is the place I have missed the most since lockdown and I really cannot wait to see a film on the big screen again!
Felt like celebrating with some images from movie scenes where they go to the cinema! Can you name all the films?
Today is World Book Day and what better way to celebrate on a film blog than putting together a list of 7 films that are based on books? I thought it was a great idea too, the thing with the list though is that I have to have read the book and seen the film for it to make the list.
Here are my choices . . .
Awards season is in full flow now and everything is gearing towards the Academy Award nominations and then ceremony.
If Beale Street Could Talk
Mary Poppins Returns
A Star Is Born
A very tough list to put together as it is really hard to narrow it down to 25 performances. I have somehow managed and the order could so easily be interchangeable between different performance types. 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 . . .
An in-depth look into the life of astronaut Neil Armstrong and his quest with NASA to get a man to walk on the moon, he became the first man to do that on July 20th 1969. We get to see the struggle in that legendary space mission eventually happening.
The ninth secret screening date has been confirmed by Cineworld (website link) but it is not bookable yet. As standard now it has the 15 rating and 90 minutes as the running time, that doesn’t mean anything now though when they first started doing these screenings the time and rating used to be pretty much spot on, but they now have those down to try to trick everyone. We have now had so many different genre’s that it really could be pretty much any type of film.

Absolutely love this scene and moment in Remember the Titans as they are all starting to become more of a team!
