Justice League 3D - Not at Marvel's level but this was not as bad as some make it out to be 8/10

Murder on the Orient Express - I'm really surprised at the mediocre reviews on this one. Yeah, the script isn't as tight as the Lumet version, but Brannagh is a great Poirot, and the soft humour was well aligned. 4/5

Daddy's Home 2 - Pretty poor with funny moments few and far between. Gibson and Lithgow were perfect for their characters, but the material was too poor for them to shine. 2/5

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle - Great update of a childhood classic. Perfectly cast and I loved the sort of Breakfast Club spin it has to it. One of the most pleasant surprises of the year. 4/5

At first I thought I'll go and see it in IMAX (make it my first IMAX film), but all normal times were sold out and midnight screenings had only shitty seats left. So went with regular 3D, plus I had a free ticket. 12:15 screening on Friday ... only me and 12 other people in 500 seat hall :-D Later screenings were sold out tho.

Star Wars: Episode VIII - The Last Jedi 3D, easily the most anticipated movie of the year and it's hard to discuss this movie without spoilers, so I'll go with what Ain_Uussaar said - "There were some little things I didn't like but over all it was very good". I'd give it an 8/10.

Michael Bolton: There was nothing wrong with it... until I was about 12 years old and that no-talent ass clown became famous and started winning Grammys. (Office Space)

After many many years I was lured back to cinemas and got to see 44 films in 2017 ... overall I liked 2017, there were some good ones I missed and some bad ones I'm glad I missed. I hope 2018 will be as good or better.

HAPPY NEW FILM YEAR ! :-D

The Shape of Water - I've been eager to see this film since I heard about it earlier in the year and throughout the film's festival circuit, finally got the chance to check it out today and boy was it incredible! Guillermo Del Toro has done a spectacular job with this passion project film. Everything from the story, to the casting, performances, production design, make-up effects, it all worked. It was a masterpiece of storytelling, highly recommended and I think easily the best movie of the year - 10/10.

Finally saw this and going to agree with both Noor and Ain. A solid 4/5 and not as good as The Force Awakens, but really setting the scene for whatever comes next.

Molly's Game - Aaron Sorkin delivers his first feature film directing effort and it was a knockout. Jessica Chastain and Idris Elba had perfect chemistry and delivered incredible performances in what ended up being a riveting 140 minutes. I knew very little of Molly Bloom's story and I was hooked from start to finish, I suppose that was a good thing going in. Highly recommended 9/10.

First visit to cinema this year and saw two films:

Molly's Game - Very entertaining story. Aaron Sorkin has made a very nice directorial debut. Cast was very good too. Not sure about the jumps in time. 8/10

The Commuter - Some unneeded bits, some unanswered bits in the end but overall ... not bad, not bad at all. 7/10

Nice start to the year. Right now have plans to see four films tomorrow.

The Death of Stalin

All 7/10
