This blog post is part of The Film That Started It All Blogathon on Let’s Go To The Movies. Getting people to really have a look at a film that they believe started a true love, passion and obsession towards films. I wanted to make sure we focus on the good and get away from the negative comments mainly on Twitter, love film!

When I was thinking about this Blogathon something I actually had a similar draft saved from a couple of years ago, only one film was in my mind. That being Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring. I guess I could have combined the whole trilogy but I am going to only focus on that first part and the start of a truly epic journey for cinema watching and then the extended edition released on DVD and now I own on Blu-Ray as well, hoping for 4K UHD one day!

My 7 Favourite American Football Films

Inspired by Super Bowl Sunday I thought this was the perfect opportunity to put together my list of films that I love which are about American Football. Just remember though that my knowledge of American Football is not fantastic but I really do love the films about it, working in sport I just find myself obsessed with all different sports films.

My choices are covering many different aspects of the sport and how it really can be used to change and help with so many different things in life! American Football films do have a high quality in performances and storylines to go along with some great quotes and speeches!

Stranger Things (Season 2) Review

stranger_things_ver26_zpsqvjynwwd

The build up for Stranger Things 2 has been pretty impressive over the last few weeks and even months, quite possibly the biggest Netflix series yet? I would certainly say so the build up on social media has been very fierce. Something I am very thankful of towards Netflix for this series has to be that you can binge watch it very easily, which is what I have done and on a more extreme level than season one!

Trailer: Stranger Things – Season 2 (2017)

This trailer for Stranger Things season 2 is absolutely fantastic, after Will had been rescued from the upside down something strange is still going on with him and that is shown in this trailer.

How incredible is the creepy rendition of Thriller throughout this trailer, as well as being dressed as a Ghostbuster! Great that Netflix are releasing it on Halloween, I really am looking forward to which direction this season is going in.

15 Amazing Shots in Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring

Its official I feel extremely old today as it is 15 years since Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring was released at the cinema. You should already know that this is the one film that changed it all! This was actually a really tough thing to do and only pick 15!

It really kick started my extreme love for film and wanting to watch as many as possible. I was blown away by the start of the adventure and forming of the Fellowship. It was showing us that when faced with great evil people from all different backgrounds will unite to stop it. I think that is reassuring if nothing else, we get to learn about the different people and our first look into Middle Earth.

The Middle Earth Peter Jackson managed to create really was something else, we get so many breathtaking shots throughout the film, so I thought as part of the celebration that I would pick 15 of my favourite. You will have to see if I mange to pick all of yours, or if I have missed something you love!

The 10 Best Duos In Modern Cinema

Throughout the history of cinema, there have been famous duos: Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid; Han and Luke (or Han and Chewie for that matter); Doc Brown and Marty McFly; Jake and Elwood Blues. The pairings go on and on (and actually, this list sums up a lot of the best ones).

For most of the famous duos in cinema, there’s an iconic status that comes into play. We love these duos not just because they were great together on screen but because their projects have stood the test of time and now resonate as classics. That makes it a little harder to determine who the lasting, impactful duos of modern cinema will be. But in the spirit of a certain goofy movie about male models coming out soon, let’s take a stab at it anyway…
