It’s not something that I really get involved with but I thought it would be a great time to have a look through some of my favourite romantic film quotes, as let’s face it everything that is said in the movies is just so much better than what people say in real life right?
This was my second proper full year of logging everything I watch on Letterboxd and it really is so helpful and useful for keeping track of which films you watched and being able to put tags on means you can then easily scroll through that way as well. My challenge for this year was to “review” each film as well, which meant I just put in a couple of comments about the film.
Here we can take a look at my 2021 stats and I am sure no one will be surprised with my most watched films either!
For the 5th year running I saw in the New Year watching one of my favourite films When Harry Met Sally. I was a few minutes off the timing for Harry to arrive to Sally for midnight and one of the greatest speeches ever!
“When you realise you want to spend the rest of you life with someone, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible”
I then took a photo of this and tweeted it at Billy Crystal and just look what happened ❤️🥰 2022 has peaked early!
I wish everyone who supports Let’s Go To The Movies the best possible 2022, and thank you to the legend that is Billy Crystal!
With New Years Eve falling on a Friday this year I have decided to put on a special event of #FridayFakeCinemaClub. This one is a little bit different though as I have a suggest start time which can be local to your country for the best experience but just watching this absolute favourite film of mine and tweeting about it would be just great as well! Mainly because the finale moment occurs at midnight on New Years Eve!
Use the hashtag #FridayFakeCinemaClub on Twitter to join the conversation of what is one of the best romantic comedies of all time and in my top 3 favourite films!
Start Time: 10:35pm Streaming Service: Amazon Prime Video & Sky Cinema (both in UK)
I received this via email in the past few days and thought I would share it with everyone! I guess it just helps to confirm why When Harry Met Sally is one of my all time favourite films!
Love is in the air and hearts are aflutter for a rom-com binge this Valentine’s Day, with global searches for “top romantic comedies” having risen by 350% in the last 7 days*. But among our favourite classics and modern romantic comedies, which are the cheesiest?
Interested in finding out, OnBuy.com analysed all romantic occurrences in our favourite flicks to reveal how often we’re hit by a cheesy cliché.
This is something I have been putting together for quite a long time now and I have held off posting it or even attempting to start the blog post in fear that I have forgotten and somehow missed a favourite film from the list. Barring in mind I got up to 72 films and then had to cut it down to the 50. I would like to make clear these are my favourite films, some might have happened to win Oscars as well and some certainly have not at all. The way I have decided on my favourites is the sheer joy they bring and the number of rewatches I have had over the years. While I have listed 1-50 a lot of them can be shifted around and changed with each other. It is going to highlight my love for musicals and for certain actors and actresses! I doubt it will contain many surprises though!
Today marks 12 years since starting Let’s Go To The Movies and in that time I have blogged a lot about the films I truly adore and love, although also come across I don’t like and sometimes hate. Isn’t that one of the best things about watching films though? I certainly think so the discussion around films you just got and the ones you just didn’t.
Thanks to everyone for the support over these past 12 years, it has seen Let’s Go To The Movies make a UK Top 10 Film Blog four years in a row, but since been a couple of years now since making that list. I’ve done well though going for this long on just a little hobby right?
1727 Film Reviews
I thought this year I would celebrate with Harry and Sally, one of the greatest film moments of all time, considering it took them 12 years and 3 months to get together and married after their first meeting.
I signed up for Letterboxd way back in 2015. Yes, really! Although I didn’t actually start using it properly until the end of 2019 and therefore 2020 was the first full year that I logged every single film that I watched. Albeit not as many Cinema films as I would have liked, which leads me on to saying during the lockdown/furlough stage I spent a lot of time logging in the diary all of the films I had seen at the Cinema dating back to 2003 (yes, I still have my Lord of the Rings: Return of the King ticket). This obviously took a few weeks as I also logged the films I have review on here as well. So as you imagine a lot of time was taken to do this. It gives some amazing all-time stats though.
Here we can take a look at my 2020 stats and I am sure no one will be surprised with my most watched films either!
That’s right the legend that is Billy Crystal acknowledge me on Twitter! The review of his film Standing Up, Falling Down (Review) which is a fantastic gem of a film premiered on Sky Cinema earlier this week. I never in a million years thought he would ever see my tweet about the film and I seriously could not believe it when I clicked on my notifications and saw this quote tweet! Considering my intense love for When Harry Met Sally I feel this is going to be my all time greatest moment EVER on Twitter, I cannot think about how this could be topped at all.
Something I will always wonder will be if he clicked on my profile and saw that he is in fact part of my header photo?
