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
In a future world with not many mutants left a weary Logan cares for an ailing Professor X in a hide out on the Mexican border. His attempt to hide from the world and legacy as part of the X-Men is about to come crashing down when a young mutant turns up with a lot of similarities.
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!
With so many superhero films bombarding us over the past few years I have decided to put together a top 5 list of my favourites!
I don’t see 2006 as 10 years ago I mean that is just madness. But it has been a whole decade now since that year, which is terrifying in all honesty. I thought it was a perfect opportunity to have a look back in this blog post at the films from 2006, the ones I enjoyed at the time, the ones I have caught up with and quite frankly the ones which are getting better with age and standing the test of ten years.
2006 was also pre-blog so I don’t even have many reviews for films from that year, if you search 2006 as a tag I am sure you will be shocked to see the lack of reviews. Especially when one of them is a bit of a strange film choice.
1. Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest – $1,066,179,725
2. The Da Vinci Code – $758,239,851
3. Ice Age: The Meltdown – $660,940,780
4. Casino Royale – $599,045,960
5. Night at the Museum – $574,480,052
6. Cars – $461,983,149
7. X-Men: The Last Stand – $459,359,555
8. Mission: Impossible III – $397,850,012
9. Superman Returns – $391,081,192
10. Happy Feet – $384,335,608
Eddie Edwards is well known as Eddie the Eagle in England due to his crazy attempts at the Ski Jump and making it to the Olympics. It all started when he was a child and told to give up sport but he always dreamed of one day being an Olympian.
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.
The thing with seeing a lot of films over the year is that you are bound to see quite a few bad ones as well. I have improved in this over the past few years and totally learnt certain types of films to totally avoid like you know anything with Adam Sandler in! I know when I will be looking over a lot of people’s worst films of 2015 lists I will then be reminded that I made a good choice not to see some films when they were out at the cinema. Before reading my list and commenting being shocked a certain film wasn’t picked, these HERE are the films I saw at the cinema in 2015!
Also remember that this is MY opinion and how I feel about certain films, it’s fine if you loved any of them as it’s all subjective anyway. These films were so close to being on the list, Ted 2, Minions, Pitch Perfect 2, The Age of Adaline.
So here we go these are my worst films of 2015 . . .
Going back to beginning and finding out how and why Peter ended up in Neverland in the first place . . .
I went to see the latest UK touring production of Oklahoma over the weekend (review will be up soon) so that is why I have decided to post a couple of videos for this week’s Musical Moments.
Ok so it’s Monday so your thinking no it really cannot be a beautiful morning, so I decided to even it out by picking Hugh Jackman’s performance 😉
Also a clip from one of my favourite films ‘When Harry Met Sally’ involving Billy Crystal and a karaoke machine as he sings a little bit of ‘Surrey with a Fringe on Top’ ❤
