January 2017 at the Cinema

Always one of the busiest months at the cinema due to the number of releases, especially in the build up to Awards season.

I certainly got my moneys worth (and more) from my Cineworld Unlimited pass which costs £17.40 per month, so seeing 12 films cost me a very little £1.45. When you work it out that way fantastic value for money!

I managed to see the following films:

1st – Silence – Review

3rd – A Monster Calls – Review

5th – Assassin’s Creed – Review

8th – La La Land – Review

14th – La La Land – Review

RIP John Hurt

British acting legend has sadly passed away at the age of 77. He was well known for his many film roles including The Elephant Man, 1984, Alien, V for Vendetta and featuring in the Harry Potter series. He also was a well respected actor on stage and the small screen with many roles in TV series.

Rest in Peace Sir John Hurt
