RIP Albert Finney

Just seen that this sad news broke a couple of hours ago now. I personally love him as Daddy Warbucks in Annie as well as Ed in Erin Brockovich! He was 82 years old and had starred in some very big films.

Rest in Peace ❤

Bondathon: Ranking the 24 Films

As I was making my way through the Bond films I was putting them in a ranking list from Best to Worst. I thought that would be the easiest way to do it as would probably forget exactly what happened in each of the films. So basically when ranking them I just decided which film I liked it better than and placed it in the list. Some of them were extremely difficult to pick where to put them so I might not even be able to justify it’s place in the list. But here you have 1-24 in order from Best to Worst MY Bond list!

London Film Museum – Bond in Motion

On the trip to London over the weekend we decided to head across to the London Film Museum in Convent Garden to have a look at the Bond in Motion exhibition they have on at the moment (and for the rest of this year). It features many of the different cars, planes and other gadgets that are seen in all of the different Bond films. To see so many incredible cars in one place really is a brilliant experience, especially those smashed up Aston Martins!

Oscars 2013

Well I wasn’t really ready for this years Oscars and didn’t manage to see all of the films nominated for Best Picture or the top acting awards. So I didn’t really seem that bothered about catching the show or trying to stay up late to watch it. First time host Seth MacFarlane didn’t really make me any more excited about it all, don’t get me wrong I really do like Family Guy, but figured he would be a bit much for the Oscars.

One little thing I didn’t realise though was that musicals were going to play  a big part in the show . . . Now if I had known this earlier . . .

Top 10 – Best 2012 Films

The pick of the 2012 films I have seen. Remember this is the list of films I have seen at the cinema! 2012 for me seemed to be a very strange year for film, as I don’t feel like I managed to see many films during the year or at the very least missed loads of films. But I will try to give reasons why the 10 films which are in this list have made the list!

Bond is Bloody British!!!

Having seen Skyfall twice make that three times now! I couldn’t help but notice how many times the word “bloody” is used throughout the film. I am sure this is seen as a big British word but it really does feature a lot. Hence the title of this blog post, it possibly is the most British Bond film to date with a lot of the scenes being in and around London, with a trip to Scotland as well so the UK is very well used in this film. (But don’t worry some other places are involved too).

007 at the Movies

As we are gearing up to James Bond’s 23rd cinema outing Skyfall at the end of this month, everything is Bond! Last week Adele reached number 1 with the single of the same name for the up and coming film, with a very traditional Bond theme! Daniel Craig is back for his 3rd outing, but Sky Movies have also got involved by having a whole Movie channel devoted to 007. Showing every film, over and over again! Brilliant build up to Skyfall’s release. I am going to attend to review the other 22 Bond films before the release of Skyfall . . . It is going to be a difficult task but I am going to try!!! 007

But who is your favorite Bond?
