Lockdown Lists: Netflix & Sky!

I have decided that with the extended lockdown and therefore no cinema or many new releases that it is the time to work my way through those lovely lists that we build up. The Netflix queue, all the films I have recorded and downloaded on Sky that I have wanted to watch (Amazon and DVD/Blu-Ray list will be coming soon too).

Anything with a * next to it I have seen before but haven’t reviewed. As you can see I have so many films that I have at some point thought I wanted to watch. Since doing these lists yesterday morning I have crossed off The Philadelphia Story (it was recorded in August 2017) and Training Day.

If you have any films you think I should watch first and bump to essential viewing in the next view days please let me know!

The Young Pope (Series 1) Review

313969-3_zps1bqcrzg5

Lenny Belardo, the youngest and first American Pope in the history of the Church, who just so happens to smoke! He must try and come to terms with the running of the church and if he really can make a difference while also deciding to remain out of the public eye with no one actually knowing who he is. Bringing in people he has always been close to helping him in the struggle, does he even believe in God?

Sky Movies in March/April

I use Sky Movies a lot to catch up with films that I missed on the cinema release but also as an introduction to some other films that did not manage to get a cinema release. With the On Demand options as well they really do have a massive amount of films available to watch both old and new.

I thought I would start blogging more about which films are coming soon to Sky Movies for the UK based followers of Let’s Go To The Movies, making it easier for you to find a place with the latest Sky Movies news!

Inside OutReview – From Friday 25th March

inside-out-2015-02-1_zpsske3ruhw

A truly fantastic film from Pixar and really will tug at your heartstrings. If you did not see this one at the cinema then you really do have to make the effort to watch it on Sky Movies when it is available! What better to watch over the Easter Bank Holiday weekend?

San AndreasReview – Available Now

By no means the best film in the world but a great addition to the disaster film genre with The Rock as engaging as ever really pulling out all of the stops in this one!

Is it eventually time to go Blu-ray?

Well this will probably suprise you but I am still not part of the blu-ray revolution! Yes I know that really is bad isnt it! But I do need a new TV in my room before I can go for the blu-ray dvd player etc. I think I have now waited long enough and must join a better viewing world in terms of film at home. Sky HD on the TV in the living room, but upstairs an old TV with normal pictures . . . yes it really is time to go HD and blu-ray I reckon!

I have been looking at that Samsung player from HMV as you get 6 blu-ray dvd’s with it for only £149.99 which seems like a great deal to me. Unless anyone can point me in the direction of a better deal?

So should I take the plunge and go blu-ray???

FlashForward – Episodes 4 & 5

I have just finished watching a double bill of FlashForward as last week, episode 3 got deleted off Sky+ so had to record it again on Friday. So then decided just to wait until this morning when episode 4 had been recorded as well. Plus side of watching it after its been recorded? Fast forwarding the adverts. It was actually quite difficult to watch 2 episodes in a row, as so much information to take in from each episode.
