The Island (2005) Review

In a dystopian future a group of people live in a facility and do different jobs, a lottery happens where they are then taken to the island. The only escape from the horrible reality they face, we follow Lincoln Six Echo and then Jordan Two Delta as they begin to realise everything is not as it first seems.

2020 Letterboxd Stats!

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!

Happy International Women’s Day!

What better way to celebrate International Women’s Day than a collage of my favourite actresses who have brought me so much joy and escapism from watching them in films or tv shows over the years!

Oscars 2020 – Best Supporting Actress

Over the years the Best Actress in a Supporting Role race has become a lot stronger and that is certainly a very positive and good thing! Showing that the female roles are well and truly improving. Laura Dern has been running away with everything this awards season with some people arguing that Marriage Story wasn’t even her best 2019 performance thinking about her in Little Women! Being full on team Jojo Rabbit I would love to see Scarlett Johansson getting this one!
