Another I busy month at the cinema in preparation for the Oscars and fitting in the nominated films which were continuing to be released at the cinema.
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
19th – Fences – Review
26th – La La Land – Review
26th – Patriots Day –Review
28th – Logan (22:23pm) – Review
You always have to love the photos they take of the acting winners at the end!
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!
This year I will attempting to Live Blog as well as be active on Twitter (@LetsGoToTheMov7) during the Oscars. Although this year I haven’t taken any time off work, as I fell asleep anyway last year.
So keep checking back on here and see how far I actually make it through the show! Comments and discussion welcomed!
The best actor race was looking like only one winner was going to come about but another which in recent weeks has changed a little bit with other awards going from Affleck to Washington. I certainly know who I preferred in their films.
Don’t forget to let me know who you would like to see win and who you think will win (if that is different of course).
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!
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!
Troy Maxson is a working class African-American trying to provide for his families in the 1950s as well as battling his demons of a life he missed out on.
As much as I love La La Land, I really do want to see BAFTA really honour I, Daniel Blake as thought it was a remarkable film. (Even if they did snub Dave Johns for the leading role)
ARRIVAL Dan Levine, Shawn Levy, David Linde, Aaron Ryder
I, DANIEL BLAKE Rebecca O’Brien
LA LA LAND Fred Berger, Jordan Horowitz, Marc Platt
MANCHESTER BY THE SEA Lauren Beck, Matt Damon, Chris Moore, Kimberly Steward, Kevin J. Walsh
MOONLIGHT Dede Gardner, Jeremy Kleiner, Adele Romanski
What I want to win – I, Daniel Blake (or La La Land)
What I think will win – La La Land
