I thought I would put together a new list this year for what I saw in 2016 (here) with the standout male performances of the year, this is going to combine the whole leading and supporting roles. Just what I have been really impressed with!
Let’s take a look at who made the list . . .
I am going to make a monthly post from now on having a little look back at how many films I managed to catch at the cinema. I will also be picking my film and performances of the month!
I thought it would also be a great idea to highlight the amazing value for money a Cineworld Unlimted Card is at £17.40 per month and seeing six films that meant I paid £2.90 for each film!
I managed to see the following films:
6th – The Light Between Oceans
9th – Nocturnal Animals
16th – Arrival
22nd – Allied
30th – The Edge of Seventeen
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!
Max Vatan is about to experience World War II in many different ways after he falls in love with the woman that is his fake wife during the resistance whilst in Casablanca. Will it be happily ever after when they are reunited in London?
When you see a lot of films at the cinema you are bound to see some awful ones. You can refresh your memory on the first 7 films I picked here. I have decided to follow it up after seeing The Boss on Wednesday, it was awful but not quite made it into the lists yet!
Have you been unlucky enough to watch any of the following films?
After watching Matt Damon on his own for most of the film in The Martian, it made me think about the incredible performances he has put in over the years. I have therefore decided to not choose that performance as one of my seven choices. Just wanted to remind readers that I have not seen every film he has been in, but will do my best to justify my choices! He has worked some fantastic actors over the years and worked very well with so many of them to bring out amazing performances. He is an actor who is not afraid to lose or put on a lot of weight for the sake of a role and to help with his character and the story in the film.
While We Bought a Zoo has not made my final seven I felt like I had to mention that film for Matt’s performance as he really did show a lot of emotion and a different side to his acting ability. In a film which I find to be very underrated.
So here it goes with my pics of seven of Matt Damon’s incredible performance, in a very strong career so far . . .
