Each month I have now decided to do a preview/up and coming post of the films that are going to be coming to the cinema. So here we go for April in 2017 and which films we can look to go and see, or avoid I guess. *Note this is for UK releases*
Probably not going to be the best month of the year at the cinema but I certainly have two films that I am really looking forward to. Yes, I know that does not sound like many at all but when you take a look at the better films this month has on offer then I am sure you will fully understand.
So take a look at what is coming to a cinema near you this month . . .
I have managed to keep up a good record coming close to January and February but that could also be due to the fact that in March we usually have a slowing down of films, or at least films that I have really wanted to see.
Cineworld Unlimited Pass is £17.40 per month and I saw 8 films this month costing me £2.17 per film.
I managed to see the following films this month:
3rd – Viceroy’s House – Review
12th – Kong: Skull Island – Review
15th – Free Fire – Review
21st – Beauty and the Beast – Review
25th – Get Out – Review
26th – La La Land (Sing-A-Long Version)
27th – Life – Review
29th – Power Rangers – Review
You may (or may not) remember that earlier this year I was put in 7th place in Vuelio’s list of Top 10 UK Film Blogs. Was is an incredible achievement considering the size of the other blogs I was listed with! Plus moving up from 10th place from the previous year.
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
I saw this going around Twitter last night listing your 7 Favourite Best Picture winners but I thought I wanted to put a blog post together to be able to have more information in it! As you may already know I have an ongoing Best Picture Project where I am trying to watch as many of the nominated films as possible. So you can check which films I have seen on that list.
I am sure none of my choices will come as any real surprise, as some of my all time favourite films have won Best Picture! Although it was quite tricky to slim the list down to just seven films.
Having seen Dreamgirls on Friday night I thought it was more than worth having this as the Musical Moment this Monday! With three different versions of the song, considering Amber Riley aka Mercedes from Glee was in the show first here is the clip of her performing from Graham Norton just before Dreamgirls opened in the West End.
I, Daniel Blake
Fully deserved for the heartbreaking and heartwarming tale looking at the benefits system in the UK. Set in Newcastle and it really is powerful and hopefully it can be used to actually help the people who are screwed over by the system!
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
Over the past few weeks I have found myself mentioning this to people on Twitter who had absolutely no idea what I was going on about. On IMDb – Internet Movie Database although I am sure you already knew that part. You can add your Film or TV Series reviews onto the external review part of the site.
I am pretty sure I just saw someone else mention it and started doing it then. Well, worth taking a little bit of time to put all of your reviews onto the site. I get around 15/20 clicks from IMDb by having my reviews in external reviews. I think it will probably be something that becomes even more popular with the announcement that they are closing down the messages boards. I guess both good and bad reasons behind that, but that is a totally different issue. I am here to help you expand your blog and get more people reading your reviews that you take a lot of time and effort to write.
I will take you on a step by step guide and honestly once you’ve submitted a couple of reviews it takes seconds to update!
I really hope you aren’t reading this post on 2nd February for the second or one hundredth time! I wish I had thought about a post like this earlier though, especially considering my daily quote calendar had the following on it . . .
