Top 20 of 2018: The Top 10

So here we are, my personal favourite films of 2018. It has taken a bit of time as I managed to catch one more 2018 film this last week which threw this entire list out of whack. Now I know what you’re thinking, how can I add a new choice into my 2018 list despite…

Top 20 of 2018: 20-11

Welcome to the New and (only slightly) improved Movie Hangover. You will have to forgive me in this first post back from a long hiatus, for my writing may not be up to scratch but, like a certain Russian in this years Creed 2, I’m back to shake things up. The reason for my absence…

Top 20 of 2017! 10-1

Happy New Year to all! To kick things off in..well maybe not style but a distracting 15mins, here are my final choices for the best films in 2017. Jeez it feels so long ago already! Narrowing these down into set numbers was a difficult one as I’d say all of these could easily be number…

Top 20 of 2017! 20-11

Another year draws to close and with it plenty to take stock of. It is has been a funny old year, socially, politically¬†and culturally, but one rife with major upheavals. 2017 became the year of intolerance, the year where Hollywood almost collapsed under the weight of some truly shocking behaviour (RIP Kevin Spacey’s career), the…

2017: The Big Preview

2016 is so last year!! Let’s forget all the misery and death of last year, not to mention one of the worst summer movie seasons for decades, and look ahead to the biggest films set for release this year. I have forgone the traditional monthly January preview, namely because it’s already a week into Jan…

Top 10 of 2016!!

After a literal month of deliberating, debating and just plain getting frustrated, I’ve finally landed upon my top 10 of this year in the movie-verse. As I mentioned in my earlier countdown this year has been a treasure trove of nuanced, interesting and just damn awesome films. Cinema is dead my arse!! Now this top…

Top 25 of 2016: 25-11

There are some out there who claim that 2016 was a weak year for film, and to those people I’ll say this “you were not watching the right films!!” In constructing this top 25 of the year I had to shred at least 10 other films from the list, and I genuinely was one step…

2016: The Defining Scenes

2016 was a very hit and miss year, but within it there were certainly some memorable moments. Although not a countdown list, these are what I feel are the scenes that defined this year, full as they are with big action, heartfelt emotion, belly laughs and in one or two sickening violence: Batman V Superman…

Films to see: December!!

Well here it is the final month in possibly the shittiest year known to man. With Donald Trump, the Brexit catastrophe, the endless rise of hatred and stupidity and the seemingly never ending wave of big name celebrity deaths (NO not Professor Snape!!) 2016 can, in the words of John Oliver, go fuck itself. But…

Films to see: November

October was an odd month. Filled as it was with relatively average 3 star films. It’s a weird middle month between the slew of fall blockbusters and award worthy films of Nov/Dec and the end of the summer movie season. Luckily it was saved by a few decent films, and the stellar Doctor Strange. Plus…
