Before I get into my top 10 best and worst films of 2016 I thought I would put together this list of films which surprised me in 2016, but not quite enough to make it onto the top 10 list. It is nice to be surprised by a film when you head to the cinema that is for sure!

Here you can see the films that I caught at the cinema during 2016!

Oscars 2012- Host: Eddie Murphy

Eddie Murphy has been announced as the host for the 2012 Oscar ceremony. Having a total change back to a comedian hosting the night. After the unsuccessful turn of younger actors James Franco and Anne Hathaway – at least something different was tried last year, but I think the comedy value of a host really does make a massive difference. I loved Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin in 2010.

So I am quite pleased with this as I am sure Eddie Murphy will do a very good job and be very funny in the process. After all he is a pro at stand-up and should be more than at home on the Oscar stage.

Rise of the Planet of the Apes (2011) Review

In San Francisco Dr Will Rodman (Franco) rescues a baby ape when experiments went wrong and the company he worked for order for them all to be put down.


Your Highness (2011) Review

When Prince Fabious’s bride is kidnapped, he goes on a quest to rescue her… accompanied by his lazy useless brother Thadeous. But this is no normal medieval film, it has a very funny take on those type of films. In fact it makes fun of them and itself in such a good way.
