Another year is coming to an end which means another Best Film list must be put together. I am sure I will have plenty of choices of films that people won’t agree with, but this is my list so I can pick what I thought was the best out of the films I have watched in 2016.
Feel free to judge me but I don’t really care! I certainly have some strange obsessions and fangirl moments over older men. I am hoping that with this post people will either agree, understand where I am coming from or just respect my total honesty in admitting my random obsessions. This has often resulted into buying a lot of older films and rushing out to see the latest release from that actor and generally just well loving them!
Drew Baylor a shoe designer has just cost his company one billion dollars. He therefore decides that the shame would be too much that he will commit suicide, something worse happens though when he finds out his father has just died. He must be the responsible one and bring him back from Elizabethtown.
After seeing Allied last night it got me to thinking about how much I have always been into World War II. Although when I decided to put this list together I have now realised that I have not actually seen as many of the films based on this War as I actually expected. I therefore picked my seven favourites that I have seen (so far). Please let me know which ones are your favourites and which ones I should really watch!
I have tried to have quite varied choices!
This album is rather impressive as it combines theatre songs with some very well known actors to sing with the legend that is Barbra Streisand. I first heard about it on a feature from Good Morning Britain who showed clips of the recording sessions along with a very excited Jamie Foxx. Brilliant to see how much of a big star Streisand is!
I was so curious about this album that I went straight onto Spotify to see that only one song was available so therefore iTunes to buy it!
Something that everyone always talks about when it comes to the Oscars is who the host or hosts are. It seems to be important to really get the viewer engaged from the opening monologue. I will admit that in terms of watching the Oscars I am pretty new at it. I guess I have this blog to thank for that as probably 2009 was when I started paying more attention to it. The reason? Well because I had started watching more films, and seen a lot that had been nominated.
Therefore my favourite Oscar hosts are from the more recent years, I just thought I had to set that straight before people asked why I had not mentioned some of the older ones.
I thought I would start by mentioning Chris Rock who had the pleasure of hosting this years Oscars. His opening monologue well pretty much poked fun at everyone addressing the Oscars so white situation which had been brewing since the nominations came out. He was as everyone expected in all honesty.
When pathologist Dr. Bennet Omalu uncovers the truth about brain damage in football players who suffer repeated concussions in the course of normal play, it is about to give the NFL a massive shock!
Ethan Hunt and his team are back trying to prove that the Syndicate actually exists ran by a mysterious man as he follows him pretty much across the world.
When they bogey man/Pitch is trying to return fear to all children, this causes Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, the Tooth-fairy, Sandman and newly picked Guardian Jack Frost to keep the children believing.
