February 2017 at the Cinema

Another I busy month at the cinema in preparation for the Oscars and fitting in the nominated films which were continuing to be released at the cinema.

Cineworld Unlimited pass which costs £17.40 per month, so seeing 8 films cost me a £2.17. Yes it was 9 films but I went to Empire Cinemas to see Fences due to the initial limited release!

I managed to see the following films this month:

5th – Loving – Review

6th – Hidden Figures – Review (Unlimited Screening)

9th – The Founder – Review (Unlimited Screening)

15th – Sing – Review

15th – Fifty Shades Darker – Review

19th – Fences – Review

26th – La La Land – Review

26th – Patriots Day –Review

28th – Logan (22:23pm) – Review

Film of the Month

I was totally taken in with this inspiring story and found the film to be filled with joy after so many horrible moments. But the women were so strong that they fought to really change well everything that was known!

Male Performance of the Month

It just had to be Denzel in Fences he really is an incredible force as the man who pretty much regrets everything in his life. Will not allow his son a chance to make it with something that did not work out for him. The best performance we have seen from him in a very long time, which is saying something considering he is well an amazing actor. I was gutted he did not pick up an Oscar for this role as he really did more than deserve it!

Special mention!

Female Performance of the Month

I’m sorry but I’ve had to cheat and call this one a tie between Henson and Davis. I really thought Henson deserved at least a nomination for her incredible performance in Hidden Figure really thought she was outstanding. The other mention has to be Viola Davis as she was incredible in Fences, come on she ugly cried! But such an incredible actress!

What did you see in February? What was your favourite film and performances?

  2. Either Hidden Figures or Logan, for different reasons. Hidden Figures felt very personal to me as a woman with a STEM background. Logan was great as part of the X-Men series and I love the tone and story. Fences was actually something I was really eager to watch but felt disappointed by it. I don’t think it translates well into cinematic medium. Just my opinion on it.
    Great reviews btw! 🙂
