November 2017 at the Cinema

In November I went to see 10 films at the cinema, but one of them doesn’t count towards my Unlimited Card as I had to go to Tyneside Cinema to see Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool due to it being on a limited release. So for the monthly numbers I pay £17.90 a month and 9 films at Cineworld works out at £1.98 per film. I actually thought this was a rather strong month for film!

I saw the following films:

1st – A Bad Moms Christmas – Review

3rd – Murder on the Orient Express – Review

8th – Happy Death Day – Review

10th – Paddington 2 – Review

17th – Justice League – Review

19th – Daddy’s Home 2 – Review

22nd – Ingrid Goes West – Review

24th – Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool – Review

29th – Cineworld Secret Screening 6 – Molly’s Game – Review

30th – Battle of the Sexes – Review

Film of the Month
This is a very tough choice this month as more of the films were good and impressive compared to the let downs in all honesty.
I’ve gone for it though and picked Paddington 2, mainly because it was such a great sequel after how surprised I was with Paddington. It had many very good and happy moments, engaging throughout and easily the film I enjoyed the most at the cinema in November. A film which people of all ages will easily enjoy and I am so pleased they managed such a fun-filled sequel with so many great moments about family and friendship.

Male Performance of the Month
Hugh Grant in Paddington 2 was really something else, honestly who would have ever thought everyone would be saying that after seeing the sequel to the surprisingly good family film. Within his role he took on many other roles as the struggling actor who used to be great on stage. Honestly then the after credits sequence will mean that you won’t ever look at Grant in the same way again!

Female Performance of the Month

Emma Stone in Battle of the Sexes as the tennis legend Billie Jean King was absolutely amazing on every level possible. She was engaging and you were right behind her in the fight women’s rights. I am starting to wonder if there is any type of role that Stone won’t be able to do, her choices for films over the past few years has been brilliant and she keeps pulling out incredible performances. She has quickly become one of my favourite current actresses working and deserves all of the plaudits she gets!

  1. I saw all but A Bad Moms Christmas, don’t think I am missing much there. Best movie, it was a close call between The Florida Project and Paddington 2.

    I would argue too much with your choices of best performance but would say Steve Carell in Battle of the Sexes edged it over Hugh Grant. Willem Dafoe is also excellent in an understated supporting role in The Florida Project.

    I would also mention Annette Bening in Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool, Both Jessica Chastain and Idris Elba.Molly in Molly’s Game and Rebecca Hall Professor Marston & the Wonder Women.

    Good month!

    • Paddington 2 is such great fun!

      I heard loads about The Killing of a Scared Deer but with it not getting a big release didn’t get to see it.
