I haven't watched any films yet in 2017, but it's time for new threads! Post here about any films you've seen.

I haven't watched any films so far this year but I have made myself a promise to start watching my large supply of films.

 

At the end of last year I watched a classic The Bells of St Marys which I love and the Best Exotic Marigold Hotel.

I watched the first two films of Bergman's Trilogy of Faith and I really liked it, I have the third one ready; as I dive through these less known films I become more of a von Sydow's fan.

I watched The Love Punch with Pierce Brosnan and Emma Thompson last night.  Not a great film in many respects, but I quite enjoyed it! :D

Hardcore Henry.  The first film ever shot in First Person. So you never saw the main character's face until near the end when it was visible in a mirror. It was insane and very violent but also funny.

Finally saw Rogue One yesterday.  I really enjoyed it, although its a necessary flaw that you know how it will end!  Will probably go and see it again - hoping our cinema will show the XPlus 2D version at some point, as neither of us want to see it in 3D.

Just home from watching Passengers, I really liked it but should have read more reviews before I took my 11 year old son, no where near enough action for him, and in his words, it was a romance in space. After putting him through Gravity a couple of years ago he has vowed to never go to the cinema with me to watch a space film again. (Excluding Star Wars of course, and hopefully Guardians of the Galaxy 2!) :D

We watched Zootropolis last night - it was brilliant! We laughed a lot and the story was pretty good too. Big thumbs up

Haha that was funny chaliepud. In 3 years time he will probably be fascinated watching Jennifer Lawrence putting on a spacesuit....Passengers was on my list to watch but I missed it at the cinema...is it good? The trailer didn't seem to hint at much of a story...I don't mind the romance, after all The Abyss had a romance at heart.

Not an amazing storyline, a romance in space pretty much sums it up, but Maddie (15) and I enjoyed it. 10 mins of tense action towards the end, more exciting than Gravity, but that wasn't hard! :D
