My Top Ten Favourite Films of 2015

It’s the end of the year so that means it’s time for best-of lists! So if you haven’t spotted my top ten list on HeyUGuys Movie Bloggers Top Ten – a list you should check out because it’s interesting to see what a load of different bloggers love – here is my top ten and my thoughts on each film. Now please note, all of these are UK cinema releases because as you’ll notice, one of these films came out two years ago in America.

10. Dope
I watched Dope on a plane and it was great. It made me laugh and think and I really enjoyed all the characters and their chemistry. It’s a small film that definitely deserves a lot of love.

9. Spy
Spy is a film I missed at the cinema but then I caught it on a plane and I wish I’d seen it at the cinema! It was surprising, funny and often kind of ridiculous but it really was so much fun. Jason Statham neds to do more comedy films.

8. Straight Outta Compton
I was really surprised by how much I enjoyed Straight Outta Compton. It was about a time in recent history and a band that I knew next to nothing about but I couldn’t help but get pulled into the story and I found myself caring about these people.

7. Ant-Man
Who would’ve thought that the Marvel film on my top ten list would be Ant-Man and not Avengers: Age of Ultron? Not me! I was really anti-Ant-Man a year ago, mainly because of my dislike of Hank Pym from the comics, so I was so surprised at how much I enjoyed Ant-Man. The cast had great chemistry, Michael Pena stole every scene he was in, and it was about a heist and I love heist movies! Ant-Man really was a pleasant surprise. (more…)

January Favourites

So this is something that a lot of bloggers/vloggers do a lot and I thought I’d give it a go. I can’t quite believe that the first month of 2015 has already come to an end! Where does the time go?!

Herman Ze German
One day this month I was working in Soho at a press junket and I had a very short lunch so I went out to find food. I was looking for a Costa or some other coffee shop but then I stumbled across Herman Ze German. I’d seen a couple of people I follow on Twitter tweet about it so thought I’d give it a go – it was so good. I had a Bockwurst in a bun and if I could have sat in the restaurant I’d totally would have had their chips too because they looked great. If you’re in London you should totally check the place out – the staff are super lovely too.

Enemy
This was a crazy film but I was sucked into and riveted by Jake Gyllennhaal’s performance as two guys who look exactly the same. Enemy is a strange yet captivating movie that definitely needs to be seen more than once to fully grasp what’s going on. I’d recommend you watch it though be prepared to be left a bit confused. It’s brilliant to watch a film that makes you think and is quieter and a lot different to typical Hollywood films.
