My 2017 film highlights

2017 was the year I went to the cinema more times than I can count - I've got an Infinity card for my local cinema, meaning I pay around 17 quid a month to watch as many films as I want. And let me tell you, I've made the most of it. There's been SO many good films out this year, and some not so good, and to promote the rise of the 4KTV Panasonic asked me to share my film highlights with you all - imagine watching any of these in cinema quality from the comfort of your own home! Whew. Here we go...

Hidden Figures // this one really stands out in my mind; it made me laugh, made me cry, taught me things that I had no clue about and made me realise that history isn't always taught in the way that it actually happened. It's a gorgeous story and one that I think everyone should see. Truly outstanding.

Boss Baby // maybe I'm putting this in just to wind up Olly but honestly, this film just made me laugh SO much. It's a funny feel-good cartoon, one that you don't need to concentrate on, with a really lovely story line.

Churchill // while he himself is a questionable figure from history, the film is fascinating and really well done - I love historical films, and this has some gorgeous scenery as well as some really poignant moments.

Lego Batman // I'm not massively into Batman, but I absolutely LOVED the Lego version - it's cute, funny, fast-paced and has some brilliant actors doing the voices. I could watch this over and over and not get bored.

Book of Henry // this one is absolutely wild; beautifully heart-wrenching with some really heavy twists, and it truly made me bawl but I adored it.

Baywatch // between Zac Efron and the Rock, could you go wrong? It was everything I wanted it to be and more, and it's genuinely one of the best and funniest films I saw this year.

The Mummy // there is a massive place in my heart for the first two Mummy films, so I was a bit nervous to see if this one lived up to my expectations - and it's so different to the originals, but still SO good. The storyline and the cast were great, and the little nod to Jekyll and Hyde really got me.

Atomic Blonde // I'm usually not one for action films, but Charlize Theron can do no wrong in my eyes and I loved this film. I was on the edge of my seat from start to finish and it's genuinely a rollercoaster of emotions - it's so passionately done and just an all round excellent film. Would highly recommend.

Hampstead // last but not least is this little beauty - it's such an amazing storyline, so heartwarming and genuinely lovely, plus the cinematography is something special. It's an easygoing but really touching film and I could definitely watch it again and again.

I know there's some I missed out, and I loved It and the new Kingsman, but I've been the cinema SO MANY TIMES in the last year that I'd be here all day if I wrote out aaaalll my favourites. I also didn't see the new Star Wars til 2018 so that's why it's not on here but rest assured I absolutely loved it. Let me know your 2017 film highlights too!
