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!
Happy Halloween everyone!

This is the joint worst month for attending the cinema and I am going to blame my trip away to New York, just because I was then missing for around a week. Ok and being lazy when I got home and was still off work, so maybe I actually had more of a chance to go to the cinema.
Anyway the 5 films that I managed to see work out at £3.58 per film as the Cineworld Unlimited Card costs £17.90 per month. I went to Odeon to see Dunkirk in IMAX and went VIP in The Gallery which actually cost me £21.50!

. . . I want to be a part of it, New York, New York.
That’s right everyone I am off to New York City for a few days.
I am not really sure how I have managed to miss that Whitley Bay hosts a film festival every year showcasing older films and giving you the chance to see them on the big screen. This is certainly something I am going to be getting involved in and heading to see some of the films.
It is taking place between 10th August until 3rd September 2017.
