I’ve had two fangirl moments when looking at some of the guests at the Paul Smith 50th Anniversary. Ian McKellen and Bill Nighy together in one photo (with a bonus of Susan Sarandon). Then Mark Strong and Stanley Tucci!
Alan has spent years searching for his missing son Michael, who stormed out of the house one nice when they were playing a game of scrabble. Through this he has neglected his relationship with his youngest son Peter.
Shaun has a very uneventful life, stuck in a dead end job and just enjoying going to the pub which causes his girlfriend Liz to break up with him. This is all disrupted by a zombie apocalypse!
When something happens to Harry Goodman his son Tim must head to Ryme City to collect his things, but everything is a lot deeper than he first thought. He meets Pikachu who he can actually talk to and understand, they team up to piece together the case Harry had been working on.
Five friends lead by Gary King attempted an epic pub crawl when they left school, not quite managing to pull it off. Twenty years later Gary cannot let it go and manages to get the other four back with him in an attempt to complete the quest, but something isn’t quite right with the town . . .
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!
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.
