2016 was another good year for films released at the cinema and I think the standard was pretty good, I managed to miss a lot of the films that seemed to be regarded as the worst of the year which is always a big bonus!
This time last year (and the year before) I was celebrating a record-breaking total. You know what I have only gone and done it again setting a new record this year, beating last year by a whole 12 films! Which I think is pretty impressive although I seem to be treating it very much like a game now in trying to beat the previous year. Even monthly trying to outdo the year before. I was so close to 80 and I think that will therefore be my target in 2017. Good job I have an Unlimited Card at Cineworld to be able to do this!

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.
Another year is coming to an end which means another Worst Film list must be put together. I am pretty sure that most of my choices for this list people will agree with, although I have picked a controversial number one in the list but I really did hate the film a lot. So here we go with the worst films I have watched in 2016!
Having a look at some of the films that I was left rather disappointed with in 2016, that is often due to the hype surrounding them before you get to watch them. I have noticed that Comic Book based films seem to take up most of this list. Surely that just shows that we have way too many over the past few years and it has now past the point of no return in getting loads of them each year.
Before I get into my top 10 best and worst films of 2016 I thought I would put together this list of films which surprised me in 2016, but not quite enough to make it onto the top 10 list. It is nice to be surprised by a film when you head to the cinema that is for sure!
Steven Spielberg is one of the greatest directors of all time. Today he is 70 years old and showing no signs of slowing down and stopping when it comes to making films. To help celebrate this day I thought it was the perfect opportunity to pick my seven favourites of his films. Please bear in mind though that I haven’t seen all of them!
Happy 70th Birthday Steven Spielberg!

The Word, a national centre for the written word has just opened in South Shields over the weekend. A very impressive building with four levels, a library with many different sections for different ages. Interactive points, ICT amongst many other things. To go along with the opening they have decided to have an exhibition of most famous South Shields born film director Sir Ridley Scott. Obviously I was very quick to head across to check it out!
