Musical Moments – And I Am Telling You I’m Not Going

Having seen Dreamgirls on Friday night I thought it was more than worth having this as the Musical Moment this Monday! With three different versions of the song, considering Amber Riley aka Mercedes from Glee was in the show first here is the clip of her performing from Graham Norton just before Dreamgirls opened in the West End.

Musical Moments – Whoopi Goldberg

On Saturday I will be at the London Palladium watching Whoopi Goldberg on the stage in her first ever UK stand up act, as well as a 30 minute question and answer session. Very excited as she has always been one of my favourites and in so many memorable films from growing up in the 90s! I am very excited about sitting in the fourth row and seeing the legend on stage so close up.

I guess I have seen her before though when she hosted the Tony Awards the year I was lucky enough to attend she even came on as Mary Poppins!

Musical Moments – Les Miserables

Yes, you guessed it after seeing the show in the West End on Wednesday I am even more obsessed with it. I have seen bought both concert anniversary versions and re-watched the film. So I thought that I needed to have it as today’s musical moment, I have decided to pick ‘I Dreamed a Dream’ who cannot at times relate to this haunting song and let’s face it this rendition won Anne Hathaway a Best Supporting Actress Oscar!

I always totally love these photos of the four winners in the acting categories mainly because they are always organised in exactly the same way and look great!

I was really hoping for an upset with this one as didn’t think Larson was anything special in Room massively overrated performance.


7 Reasons to love Jennifer Lawrence

After seeing Joy last week and then catching Jennifer on the Graham Norton show it inspired me to do this blog post. She comes across so cool and that she does not have a care in the world on a chat show and has already played some great characters in film! At the age of 25 she already has an Oscar win to her name for Silver Linings Playbook as well as two other nominations for Winter’s Bone and American Hustle.

7 Incredible Cate Blanchett Performances

Carol is released in the UK today and I have been looking forward to seeing it for months, after hearing about it while down and in London when the British Film Festival was on. For the premiere I was actually standing so close to the red carpet but couldn’t actually see anything. Cate Blanchett is a double Oscar winner, and been nominated three other times if that doesn’t say something about her incredible ability I don’t know what else will? But she really does have a fantastic range of films and she first came to my attention in Lord of the Rings.

7 Brilliant Tom Hanks Performances

With the up and coming release of Bridge of Spies I thought it would be a good idea to pick my seven favourite of Tom Hanks performances from over the years. It is actually a very difficult choice to pick the best of a double Oscar Winner, with another three nominations to his name. But that really does show the massive quality he has in his filmography. I have even had to leave out his incredible performance as Walt Disney in Saving Mr. Banks out of the list! Another really bad thing is that by putting this post together I have realised that I do not have many of his films reviewed on Let’s Go To The Movies even though I have seen a very high percentage of his films.

10 Years On . . . That’s Chicago

Chicago winning Best Picture in 2003 at the Oscars is often regarded as a mistake due to the other films nominated that year. I fell in love with it but then again I am just a little bit of musical geek. So obviously I still love it and have it as one of my all time favorite films. The academy showed its supposed love for musicals that year but Oliver! was the previous Best Picture winner for a musical so it had been a very long time between a musical winning the best picture award. I think it’s quite scary that it is now 10 years on and loved how the cast we involved in the 2013 ceremony. Especially the All That Jazz performance from Catherine Zeta Jones that totally made the whole show for me. It’s a great song one of the best openings to a musical and it also helped show that she still has it after more than 10 years!
