I have a confession to make I missed my blog-versary marking the 8th year since I started Let’s Go To The Movies.
Which was the 9th February 2009!
It has been a pretty incredible adventure so far, here is to many more years in the film and theatre blogging world!
Thank you to everyone who reads, likes, comments and shares. Both on the blog and via Twitter!
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!
Over the weekend I have booked up to head to New York in July for my birthday. It has been a pretty long time since my last trip there so I am very much looking forward to it. In the build up and celebration of booking thought it was only right for New York, New York to be the Musical moment today!
I will be looking to see a few shows on Broadway, if I can figure out how to find cheaper tickets as the prices are so high is unreal!
I am also going to visit film related places so if you can think of any please let me know, Katz Deli from When Harry Met Sally is certainly one place I want to go!
Quite strange that I was sat in the foyer at the cinema as this news broke, waiting to see Rogue One: A Star Wars story! I figure that is a fitting tribute to the actress most well known for her role as Princess Leia in Star Wars. Not forgetting one of my all time favourites ‘When Harry Met Sally’.
Such sad news especially after it was announced on Christmas Day that she was in a stable condition. An inspirational woman who will be truly missed, always spoke openly and honestly. Thoughts are with all of her family and friends.
Rest in peace Carrie!
May the force be with you x
As 2015 is coming to a close and we are about to start 2016 I thought the perfect way to do that was to take a look back in the film world at films which have fantastic New Year’s Eve scenes or moments. Might be a little bit strange considering I am not really a very big fan of New Year in all honesty and don’t have any plans myself for tonight. It probably doesn’t help that 2015 has been a truly awful year for me, but the less said about that the better. So what better way than to disappear into the world of film and see characters have some great and maybe interesting New Year’s Eve moments?
I do enjoy a good rendition of Auld Lang Syne though in all honesty and you will see that by some of the choices below!
I am 28 years old today.
Ahhh pushing to close to 30 for my liking!
But anyway Happy Birthday to me!!!

I went to see the latest UK touring production of Oklahoma over the weekend (review will be up soon) so that is why I have decided to post a couple of videos for this week’s Musical Moments.
Ok so it’s Monday so your thinking no it really cannot be a beautiful morning, so I decided to even it out by picking Hugh Jackman’s performance 😉
Also a clip from one of my favourite films ‘When Harry Met Sally’ involving Billy Crystal and a karaoke machine as he sings a little bit of ‘Surrey with a Fringe on Top’ ❤
This is one of those films which has grown on me over the years. It took me a while to catch up and watch it, but I am so pleased I have. The more I watch it the more I love it and think it’s a pretty incredible film, the script is fantastic which has led to this blog post. So many fantastic lines and conversations that it was actually very difficult to just pick 10 quotes from this film! Billy Crystal really can deliver a line and I am sure you will notice a lot of these come from the wisdom of Harry. If you haven’t seen this film, you really need to. Let’s Go To The Movies Review – if you want to read more about it.
This is without a doubt still one of the smartest and best romantic comedy films around. Harry and Sally met one night and over time became friends and even learnt to love one another.
