There are several huge blockbuster movies made every year, and the film industry is ever growing and developing.
The use of CGI and other special effects has been a big aspect of film that has progressed significantly in the past number of years, and things that couldn't be brought to life before on the big screen, now can.
After going to the premiere of a particularly creative movie the other night, I can easily say that it is the most incredible and unique film that I have ever seen. Ever.
The movie is Loving Vincent, the world's first ever fully painted film and it is simply stunning.
Being an avid die-hard Van Gogh fan I had big expectations for the animated movie and it surpassed everything that I had hoped it to be.
You can see the amount of time and precious consideration that went into creating the spell-binding piece of art.
Hand painted by 125 artists and brought to life
125 artists painted each and every part of Loving Vincent over the course of two years, and the team behind it has been researching and developing it for the past several years to get it funded and telling the story in the appropriate manner.
They definitely pulled it off and captured the story of the final days of Vincent Van Gogh's life perfectly by bringing over 77 of his paintings to life into an incredible 95 minute show.
Here are some of the pieces being brought to life:
If you're looking for a movie that's captivating and is full of suspense, Loving Vincent is for you.
There has been a lot of time and effort put into it, from Irish actors such as Saoirse Ronan and Chris O'Dowd filming scenes over the course of 4 weeks and then being brought to life on screen through the medium of painting along with stop-motion recording.
There really is nothing quite like it in the cinemas at the moment, and it is a first of its kind.
If you fancy seeing it for yourself, it is being shown in selected cinemas in Dublin from tomorrow, Friday 13th, including the IFI, Savoy cinema and Cineworld.

I will definitely be going to see it again. Do you plan to see to it?
