2016 at the Cinema!

2016 was another good year for films released at the cinema and I think the standard was pretty good, I managed to miss a lot of the films that seemed to be regarded as the worst of the year which is always a big bonus!

This time last year (and the year before) I was celebrating a record-breaking total. You know what I have only gone and done it again setting a new record this year, beating last year by a whole 12 films! Which I think is pretty impressive although I seem to be treating it very much like a game now in trying to beat the previous year. Even monthly trying to outdo the year before. I was so close to 80 and I think that will therefore be my target in 2017. Good job I have an Unlimited Card at Cineworld to be able to do this!

Oscars 2016 – Nominations

2014-01-16-Academy-Awards-Oscars-Generic-jpg

Here we go the nominations for the 2016 Oscars!

Still seen as the biggest awards in film and most prestigious, maybe a couple of surprises in terms of not getting a nomination but the majority is probably expected. Maybe the Academy should release the nominations before the rest of the awards and it wouldn’t be as easy to try and predict them? I will be doing plenty of posts for the big awards once I have seen the rest of the films, we have a busy couple of weeks coming up in the UK!

Best Picture
The Big Short
Bridge of Spies
Brooklyn
Mad Max: Fury Road
The Martian
The Revenant
