Oscar films to watch #1

I am a big fan of the Oscars. My first memory is of the 70th Academy Awards in 1998, which I recorded because I was so excited to see if Titanic would win Best Picture (it did, of course). Sou uma grande fã dos Oscares. A minha primeira memória é da 70ª Cerimónia dos Prémios da Academia em 1998, que gravei porque estava ansiosa por saber se o Titanic ia ganhar Melhor Filme (ganhou, claro).

The truth is, it took me a few minutes thinking about what I’d just seen (and a couple of messages to my friends going “I’m pretty sure I missed something”) for the film to sink in, and for me…

Today is finally the day that Damien Chazelle’s much hyped movie La La Land premieres in the UK. Hoje é, finalmente, o dia em que estreia aqui no UK o filme de Damien Chazelle, já muito falado para os grandes prémios de Hollywood: La La Land. Luckily, through the Cineworld Unlimited Card, I got to watch it a few days earlier, last Sunday to be precise. Here are my thoughts… Por sorte, através de um cartão de fidelidade com os cinemas Cineworld, pude ver o filme uns dias mais cedo, no último domingo para ser mais específica. Aqui fica o…
