BAFTA 2017 – Outstanding British Film Winner

I, Daniel Blake

Fully deserved for the heartbreaking and heartwarming tale looking at the benefits system in the UK. Set in Newcastle and it really is powerful and hopefully it can be used to actually help the people who are screwed over by the system!


BAFTA 2017 – Predictions

_80479216_80479215

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

15th – Live By Night – Review

20th – Jackie – Review

22nd – Manchester by the Sea – Review

23rd – Hacksaw Ridge – Review

25th – Lion – Review

29th – Split – Review

30th – Moonlight – Review
