Now is about the time I start bringing the best films of the year. I've checked a few lists and haven't heard of most of the flicks that are coming highly recommended.

What were your top films of the year?

I'm going to vote for Lion.

I accidentally watched this in the cinema when the person behind the counter at the cinema misheard my request for a ticket for the film Life but I was happy I did see this as it's bloody great.

I may have done this film a disservice as I watched it while I was strawberry floating knackered because of a bout of insomnia and the loudness put me right off.
I was honestly tempted to walk out and complain like a real old geezer :slol: .

To be fair the speakers in the Imax I was at was struggling like strawberry float to not be distorted so it was amazingly loud.

Probably Blade Runner.

I really liked Mother and Get Out. Looks like there are a few belters on the way in time for the Oscars.

Throughout the year I've seen:

Split
Get Out
A Dog's Purpose
Trainspotting 2
Dunkirk
John Wick 2

Get Out was comfortably the best of those.

Get Out is the only one that has comfortably stood out this year.

Brilliant film.

Get Out was the stand out. I also loved
Thor 3.

Enjoyed Baby Driver but also felt it was overrated. Disappointed by Dunkirk.

Pounded my Limitless card this year: 85 different films at the cinema (86 trips counting an IT rewatch). Going for 100 before the renewal on 5 Feb.

My faves this year include (no order):

La La Land
IT
Blade Runner
Logan
Three Billboards
Brigsby Bear
Get Out
Disaster Artist
Spider-Man Homecoming
Wonder
Wonder Woman
Thor Ragnarok
John Wick 2
The Florida Project

Plenty of very pleasant surprises as well (Jigsaw!). Also a ton of shite, worst offenders including Mindhorn, Power Rangers and Blade Of The Immortal.

I've barely visited a cinema this year, but I did see Wonder Woman and Logan Lucky and I thoroughly enjoyed both of them :) .

The Handmaiden didn’t make it to any of your lists. Was that last year or something? That and Get Out are my faves of the year.
