The Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring – Extended Edition

I have waited what feels like forever to witness the Extended Editions of The Lord of the Rings on the big screen. This is a very special moment as I am now sat in the cinema waiting for this film to start. Fellowship is the film that made me really fall in love with films and how they were made. So basically if it wasn’t for this film I very much doubt Let’s Go To The Movies would be around today!

7 Films Based on Books – #WorldBookDay

Today is World Book Day and what better way to celebrate on a film blog than putting together a list of 7 films that are based on books? I thought it was a great idea too, the thing with the list though is that I have to have read the book and seen the film for it to make the list.

Here are my choices . . .

Cineworld Secret Screenings 1-10

Back in 2013 Cineworld started doing Secret Screenings for Unlimited members and by 2018 we had reached the 10th Secret Screening. In the past week we have had announcements for two taking place in July 2019! So I thought this was the best time to have a look back at the first ten films we got as special previews.

Cineworld have slightly changed the way they used to do them as for the early ones we got clues over the week building up to the screening date, but they stopped doing that and changed the running time and standard age of 15. This meant that we had a child free preview of Incredibles 2 and that was quite frankly outstanding!

Something they usually do in a very clever way is having the screenings not long before a huge release and people get taken in that it is going to be that film (yes, thinking about to Star Wars and it was actually In the Heart of the Sea). Not forgetting that we have also had a preview of a film that went on to become the Best Picture Oscar winner, Green Book. So we have certainly had many different genres in the Secret Screenings.

Blogathon: The Film That Started It All – Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring

0D854A7E-D79B-4389-AD70-FBAC8C240BC7

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!

Oscars 2019 – Best Picture

This is always the biggest talking point of any Oscar ceremony and which film will walk away with the title of being Best Picture. I seem to have a love/hate relationship with the winners of this category over the years. It seems to be either my favourite film that wins it or the film I hate the most from the nominees.

This year I feel its been a very strange and odd awards season, with that I don’t really have a film that I totally love out of these eight nominated films. None in this years batch I totally love and I don’t particularly hate with a passion either. I just feel rather neutral towards them. I am hoping that by putting together this blog post that I might be able to make my mind up a little bit more. I just feel as though it is a very weak year in terms of the quality of the films. We shall soon see, so let’s take one more look at the eight films up for the most prestigious honour in film . . .

Oscars 2019 – Best Actor

The Best Actor in a Leading Role Oscar is usually a very interesting and good race during awards season. This year it seems Rami Malek is truly leading the chase, Christian Bale has picked up a couple of awards but Malek is certainly the favourite with plenty of controversy around that with how Bohemian Rhapsody has come across.

Let’s take one final look at the Best Actor nominees and who I would love to see win . . .
