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.
Bruce Wayne wants revenge for his parents death and in the process of this we see that his goal changes to trying to save Gotham from the corrupt mobsters who are beginning to run it. A very intensive training programme with the League of Shadows is going to put so many different things in notion for Gotham as well as Bruce Wayne.
A whole year has passed since the Horsemen outwitted the FBI and now they must resurface and work together to stop Walter Mabry a tech genius who wants to use their abilities for his gain.
Mike Banning is back in action as he accompanies the President to London to attend the funeral of the British Prime Minister. Everything is not as it first seems . . .
We have a very fast turn around from the 4th Secret Screening which was the very disappointing ‘In the Heart of the Sea’ which was only in December 2015. We have the next Secret Screening all set for Saturday 6th February 2016. I like the Saturday night approach such a great idea!
When booking the tickets you are told 120 minutes for the running time.
Zoolander 2 was the first talked about as being for this screening but it has previews on the same day so that rules that film out!
I haven’t seen any clues released from Cineworld this time . . .
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 . . .
Andy Dufresne is convicted of murdering his wife and her lover and must serve two life sentences for this crime, but did he actually commit it? He is sent to Shawshank prison and it certainly is a tough place to be.
Ted has gotten married to the love of his life Tami-Lynn but a year later they are fighting and arguing all the time. They decide the way to fix this was to have a baby. Yes you can work out the main problem with that, but after trying to then adopt it is brought to the attention that Ted is not actually recognised as a person.
The second instalment in Christopher Nolan’s incredible Batman trilogy. Gotham City is turned upside down as The Joker begins to cause chaos in the city, pushing everyone to find out their limits.
