jack42_zpskvqomqlm

The legendary actor Jack Nicholson turns 80 years old today and over at Realweegiemidget Reviews a Blogathon was put together to help everyone celebrate this together. When I first saw it, I just knew straight way which film I was going to write about and that is As Good As It Gets. One of my all time favourite films and an Oscar Winning performance from Jack!

A look back at 2006 in film!

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.

7 Worst Film Mothers

As it is Mother’s Day (in the UK at least) I decided that I would then pick my 7 worst film mothers. You certainly would not want any of these to be your mother as they certainly did not help their children have, but some of them might just redeem themselves in the end?

Kate – Home Alone

955825a_zpspob5lio4

Leaving your son behind when heading on holiday is a pretty awful thing to do. Kevin had an amazing time being home all alone after his whole family jetted off for Christmas without him. We will give it to Kate that she had a feeling something was wrong, but not checking you have all your children was a very bad move. I guess airports have changed a lot since the early 90s and they wouldn’t get that far to this day. We will give her points for doing everything she can to then get back to Kevin as soon as possible.

Top 10 – Films I Caught Up With in 2015

I really do try to catch up with films that I have not seen before each year (and yes I still have a massive number of DVDs that have been sitting on my shelf for films I still haven’t watched yet) as I find this often to be such a good break from the films that are released at the cinema, as let’s face it certain times of year we seem to be getting the same thing over and over again and we all know March/April are awful months at the cinema. That was also why I set up the Best Picture Project in order to increase the quality of some of the films I watch. I think some of that will be clear in these 10 films I have picked that I am now pleased I have caught up with!

I always find the best thing about doing this top 10 list is that people are always shocked that I had never seen certain films up until this (or now last year).

I haven’t included any of the Bond films in the list but thought it was very appropriate to make sure that I mentioned that 2015 was the year that I officially caught up and have now seen every single Bond film! Something which was very trying and testing but I managed to complete the challenge of my Bondathon!

7 Incredible Matt Damon Performances

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 . . .
