Cineworld Unlimited pass which costs £17.40 per month, so seeing 8 films cost me a £2.17. Yes it was 9 films but I went to Empire Cinemas to see Fences due to the initial limited release!

I managed to see the following films this month:

5th – Loving – Review

6th – Hidden Figures – Review (Unlimited Screening)

9th – The Founder – Review (Unlimited Screening)

15th – Sing – Review

15th – Fifty Shades Darker – Review

26th – Patriots Day –Review

Oscars 2017: Best Supporting Actress Winner!

Rightly so to Viola Davis for her very emotional role in Fences, and we get a very emotional speech. I think this is one of those awards that she really did deserve it for her incredible performance, in her third nomination.

Ahh she’s used the Captain, O my Captain for Denzel. So much love going on here!

Oscars 2017 – Best Supporting Actress

This has probably been the most controversial acting category at the Oscars in recent years. Due to studios putting the actresses forward in the supporting role rather than the leading role. That does appear to be something that has happened again this year. Although we then also get a mix of performances with very limited screen time so I really do think that this is a category that needs to be sorted out!

Don’t forget to let me know who you would like to win! And who you think will win, as that might not be the same!

Oscars 2017 – Best Picture

This year nine films have been given the honour of being nominated for Best Picture. I managed to catch most of them pretty early thanks to Cineworld having so many Unlimited preview screenings which certainly was a bonus! Not forgetting to mention that my number one film from 2016 is amongst the nominees as well!

It is time to have another look at each of the films that have been nominated and I will let you know what I want to win, what I think will win and what I think has an outside chance of taking home the Oscar!
