Blogathon: 7 Films That Make Me Cry

tearjerker4_zpsy3mmxddr

This post is part of the “No You’re Crying!” Blogathon, which is taking a look at all of the different films that have moments that make us cry! Let’s face it we just love to have a good cry at a film, it really does help at times! At one point they did not really effect me very much, but now I cry for all different reasons when watching a film. So with this list I have tried to pick the seven films which have made me cry (and sob) the most considering the list in general would be rather long now. I have mixed it up a little bit with the truly sad and extremely romantic moments.

I must also warn you that due to this blog post looking at different parts of films it therefore will contain some SPOILERS.

Oscars 2017 – Best Actor

The best actor race was looking like only one winner was going to come about but another which in recent weeks has changed a little bit with other awards going from Affleck to Washington. I certainly know who I preferred in their films.

Don’t forget to let me know who you would like to see win and who you think will win (if that is different of course).

Oscars 2017 – Best Picture

This year nine films have been given the honour of being nominated for Best Picture. I managed to catch most of them pretty early thanks to Cineworld having so many Unlimited preview screenings which certainly was a bonus! Not forgetting to mention that my number one film from 2016 is amongst the nominees as well!

It is time to have another look at each of the films that have been nominated and I will let you know what I want to win, what I think will win and what I think has an outside chance of taking home the Oscar!

Musical Moments – La La Land

It’s Oscars week, plenty of build up and related posts coming on Let’s Go To The Movies so let’s kick it off with the haunting City of Stars!


V-Day . . . I’m a soppy romantic at heart!

I wasn’t going to mention that it is Valentine’s Day . . . Honest. But every year I cannot help but come up with something to post about. Last year I went for it with some huge posts and put together 100 Romantic Films but if you are more cynical than that here is a Top 10 of Anti Valentine’s Day Films!

No better way to start off than with this incredibly amazing (and soppy) quote from one of my all time favourite films ever. You cannot help but love When Harry Met Sally!

_80479216_80479215

As much as I love La La Land, I really do want to see BAFTA really honour I, Daniel Blake as thought it was a remarkable film. (Even if they did snub Dave Johns for the leading role)

BEST FILM
ARRIVAL Dan Levine, Shawn Levy, David Linde, Aaron Ryder
I, DANIEL BLAKE Rebecca O’Brien
LA LA LAND Fred Berger, Jordan Horowitz, Marc Platt
MANCHESTER BY THE SEA Lauren Beck, Matt Damon, Chris Moore, Kimberly Steward, Kevin J. Walsh

What I want to win – I, Daniel Blake (or La La Land)
What I think will win – La La Land

January 2017 at the Cinema

Always one of the busiest months at the cinema due to the number of releases, especially in the build up to Awards season.

I certainly got my moneys worth (and more) from my Cineworld Unlimited pass which costs £17.40 per month, so seeing 12 films cost me a very little £1.45. When you work it out that way fantastic value for money!

I managed to see the following films:

1st – Silence – Review

3rd – A Monster Calls – Review

5th – Assassin’s Creed – Review

8th – La La Land – Review

14th – La La Land – Review

15th – Live By Night – Review

20th – Jackie – Review

22nd – Manchester by the Sea – Review

23rd – Hacksaw Ridge – Review

25th – Lion – Review

29th – Split – Review

30th – Moonlight – Review

City of Stars . . . Are you shining just for me?

Following the Oscar 2017 nominations being announced yesterday and La La Land being nominated for an impressive 14, I felt like I had to gush (even more) about the film. Have I mentioned that I totally loved it? Maybe you missed my review, read it here.

Are you shining just for me?
City of stars
There’s so much that I can’t see
Who knows?
I felt it from the first embrace I shared with you
That now our dreams
They’ve finally come true
