February 2018 In Review

20 Best Films of 2017

It's unbelievable how strong of a year 2017 was for cinema. To whittle this list down to just these choices was difficult enough, as it still feels as though I'm excluding some phenomenal films, and that's without seeing some key films (unfortunately, this includes the recently limited UK release of Lady Bird). Any film in my top 10, at least, would be a worthy choice for the years best film. But enough about this, let's see what films I consider to be the best of 2017.

January 2018 In Review

New year, new opportunity to watch all kinds of brand new films.

So, without further ado, let's take a look at the films I watched this past January.
