I do always like that we get a more British feel to this one, and yes Paddington 2 and Hugh Grant has a lot of love! Which personally I am very happy about! I will do my predictions closer to the time and when we actually have all of the films out in the UK!

NEW HOST – Joanna Lumley will be hosting this year after Stephen Fry announced a few days ago that he was stepping down!

Top 10 – Best Films of 2017

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.

Check out the films I watched at the cinema during 2017 here.

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

Paddington 2 (2017) Review

paddington_two_ver3

Paddington is very happy with his life with the Brown family and very settled in London. Constantly thinking about his Aunt Lucy and how he can make her 100th birthday extra special, all leads to a pop up book of London. The only problem is that book has a hidden meaning and he’s not the only one who wants it.
