The great thing about watching so many films is that every so often you will watch something that you are totally surprised with and really enjoyed it. Often when you were not expecting to like it at all! Somtimes these can really become hidden gems!
Moving on from the top 10 best and worst list I also like putting together some films that have disappointed me during the past year. These are mainly the films that I was looking forward to or had a lot of hype around them and just well didn’t live up to it!
I think 2017 has been a pretty impressive and good year for film, that meant that picking a top 10 was extremely hard and I have had to think a lot about what was going to make my final list. Originally I had 21 films to get down to 10 which was very tricky. I have therefore had to really think about which films I enjoyed the most this year, which made me feel good and that I would love to watch again and again.
Just missing out on the final list were the following films Colossal, Baby Driver, Dunkirk , Thor: Ragnarok, Breathe, Wonder and Get Out.
This list is getting tougher to put together which I think means that I manage to avoid the bad films that are released during the year, that being said though I still did see my share of pretty awful films. The list probably could be changed with any of the films taking the top spot so I guess its more just the ten films I thought were the worst in 2017 in all honesty, rather than a count down list!
The Greatest Showman is an original musical film that looks at P. T. Barnum and how he helped create show business and everything around it. How he rose from nothing to create a spectacle and a legacy that would be continued.
The Bellas have left college and attempting to make it in the real world having a career but it just doesn’t feel the same for them not performing together after winning the World Championships. They manage to get one last gig together as they are placed on tour to entertain the troops.
This is my overview of 2017 at the Theatre which has been a very special year with plenty of trips to London and even a trip to New York and squeezing in some Broadway shows. All to go along with the trips to Newcastle’s Theatre Royal and the Sunderland Empire to catch the latest UK touring shows.
In 2016 I managed to see 31 shows. In 2017 I managed to see 36 shows! So just beating the 2016 total! You can see a list of all of these shows here. This also included trying to get plenty of deals and really using the day seats to help save money.
Shrek rescued Princess Fiona and they got married, now he must meet her parents as they travel to Far Far Away in order to meet the King and Queen. Although not everything is what it seems, oh and they have no idea that Shrek (and now Fiona) are ogres.
You can find me at number 36 on list! Always fantastic to be placed on any kind of list which may help increase readers and hits to the blog!
Today is the first memory of Carrie Fisher’s death and having seen her final performance in The Last Jedi twice at the cinema I thought it was very appropriate to honour her memory today. Not only for the Star Wars franchise but Carrie is also in one of my all time favourite ever films When Harry Met Sally, as a truly fantastic character.
Aside from her iconic film roles she was a truely fantastic role model, someone I certainly wish I could be more like. She really did not care at all what anyone thought of her and spoke her mind. Who wouldn’t want to live just like that?
