2017 Film Watch List So Far

I've wanted to do something like this for quite a while but I just didn't really know how to. I wasn't sure whether to do a post on ALL the films I've seen this year so far, or whether to just go on the ones I've seen at the cinema, and I've decided to go with the latter. Even though I've seen a few this year at the cinema, I've seen loads more at home and I just feel like this post will be too long if I talk about every single one! So I thought I would do a list of everything I've been to see at the cinema since the start of 2017, give my opinion on it and then I'll do another one towards the end of the year. I actually don't feel like I've seen that many this year to say we have cineworld unlimited cards but as there was like a full month where I wasn't well and didn't leave the house, I suppose we missed out on a few films there. I'm not sure if this post is something anyone will be bothered about but I thought it was something just a little bit different and I personally love to know what sorts of films people like to go and see.

La La Land - ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

I was really sceptical at first about this film and even when it first started I was thinking what the hell is this but I ended up loving it. I think because I went in not really knowing what the film was about and not knowing it was a proper sort of musical, at first I was a bit shocked. By the end I loved it though, I loved the story, the characters, the music! The ending was very bittersweet and I think thats the only thing that disappointed me about it, it didn't end how I wanted it to but that's life and generally it was still a lovely film. The songs were stuck in my head for SO long after seeing this. 

Sing - ⭐⭐⭐

I had looked forward to seeing this for so long! I can be such a kid sometimes and if you've read some of my previous weekend posts or favourites, you'll know I am obsessed with Trolls, and I also loved Secret Life Of Pets so I thought this one would be another just like that. It definitely wasn't as good or as funny as the other two for me, I did really enjoy it and would watch it again but it just didn't really give me that feeling the others did. I know that might sound ridiculous because all three films are targeted at kids and I'm 22 but I just didn't think it was as amazing as I thought it would be.

Fifty Shades Darker - ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Another film I had looked forward to for so long! I loved the first fifty shades but we had to wait 2 years until valentines 2017 for the second instalment, luckily it was worth the wait! I know some people think these films are a load of crap but personally I love them. Jamie Dornan just IS Christian Grey, I am obsessed with him. I can't wait to have this on DVD and I can't wait for the third and final film next year.

Beauty and The Beast - ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

I don't know where to start with this film, it's just perfect! It's become one of my all time favourite films that I know I will watch over and over again. I can't remember every really watching the original version of the film so when the trailer came out for this, even though I wanted to see it, I wasn't buzzing for it. When we did go to see it though, I just fell in love with it all. Emma Watson is definitely not one of my favourite people but she is perfect as Belle I think and Dan Stevens as the beast is just amazing, can't forget Luke Evans as Gaston either 😍. I literally have the soundtrack on repeat most days, I think it's such a wonderful film.

Ghost In The Shell - ⭐⭐

 This was a bit of a weird one. It has Scarlett Johansson in who I'm not the biggest fan of but I was really intrigued by the story which is why I still went to see it. The main character is basically a human who is cyber-enhanced to be the perfect soldier, devoted to stopping the most dangerous criminals. It sounded really good and it was okay but not my favourite of the year. It was all just a bit confusing and I kept losing track of what was going on, I'm pretty sure I fell asleep a few times too. I don't know, just wasn't my sort of film.

The Belko Experiment - ⭐⭐⭐⭐

If you like The Purge films then I think you'll like this. I love all three Purge films as creepy as they are just because they are so real, and this was sort of the same in that way. This is basically about 80 employees who get trapped at work in their own building, told by a voice over an intercom that they must kill each other, and that their can only be one winner. You kind of know how it's going to go from the beginning but I did find it really tense and you never quite knew who was going to end up on top and who was going to turn against one another. I actually really enjoyed it and would watch it again. I'm not sure it was quite as good as The Purge but a similar sort of concept and worth a watch.

Guardians Of The Galaxy Volume 2 - ⭐⭐⭐⭐

I loved the first Guardians Of The Galaxy so I was so excited for this and it didn't let me down at all! Rocket is just my favourite character, I love him. I really enjoyed the storyline of this even though it was only really focused on one thing but I liked how it ended. I think I love all of the characters even more in this film than the first one. One thing I love about the Guardians Of The Galaxy films so much is the music! I definitely don't think the soundtrack to the second film is as good as the first, but still brilliant and the songs they chose are so catchy! I can't wait to watch this again and add to our DVD collection.

I'm hoping some more exciting films will be coming out soon, theres not been much since guardians of the galaxy I've been buzzing about to see go and see. I think so far my favourite this year has to be Beauty and the Beast. I love a few of the films on this list so it's quite difficult to pick but Beauty and the Beast was just magical. Definitely one of my new all time favourite films!

Have you seen any of these films? If so, which was your favourite?
