My 7 Favourite World War II Films

After seeing Allied last night it got me to thinking about how much I have always been into World War II. Although when I decided to put this list together I have now realised that I have not actually seen as many of the films based on this War as I actually expected. I therefore picked my seven favourites that I have seen (so far). Please let me know which ones are your favourites and which ones I should really watch!

Sir Ridley Scott Exhibition

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!

Blogathon: 7 Things I Learned from the Movies

banners

You’re invited to get deep, personal or have some fun with the lessons films have taught you, for the THINGS I LEARNED FROM THE MOVIES BLOGATHON.

Your hosts are Ruth of Silver Screenings and Kristina of Speakeasy, and this blogathon happens October 14-17, 2016.

You can do anything: a list, essay, video, or podcast, to discuss the valuable or ridiculous life lesson(s) you learned from a film, whether it was about love, war, greed, kindness, activism, bravery, sacrifice, or prejudice. Tell which movie taught you a universal truth, a new concept, the way a system works, how to craft the perfect comeback, deal with a bully, kill a vampire, behave on a date, solve a murder or mix a cocktail with style. Did a film guide your career choice, help you overcome an obstacle, better understand a friend, era, art form or culture, or change your life?

Posteritty – Film Quote Posters

I came across the incredible Posterity at some point on Twitter before Christmas, as someone had retweeted them for the very cool film calendar they were releasing. I then got it as a Christmas present (after sending the link on) and after that bought some of the posters. I have eventually got round to putting them up on my wall and thought it was well  worthy of it’s own blog post and to encourage my fellow film fans to check out the website for the fantastic minimalistic images and some with quotes.

I have therefore picked some of my favourite quotes from my favourite films. I am sure you won’t be surprised with my choices!

Oscars 2016 – Best Actor

oscars-1_zpsex6yqsek

This year it seems as though only one actor has been nominated in a leading role the incredible Leonardo DiCaprio who looks to be getting ready to eventually get his very own Oscar. But four other men are nominated as well just incase you either forgot or didn’t actually know that more had been nominated! This category always leaves me disappointed as my favourite doesn’t often win . . .
