The time has finally come! It took me a while to get to due to getting the chance to see ‘Downsizing’, ‘Pitch Perfect 3’, ‘Bright’, and ‘Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle’. Now, I can say that I am finally doing my favorite write-up of the year: Ranking my Top 10 films that made an impact on my movie-going experience! (Stay tuned for my 10 Worst films of the year!) Unlike previous years, these films are not specifically ranked by grade as much as to how I loved them. (even though, it is a major factor in my choices) With all that being said; on with the countdown!
“20 years just flown by, yeah?” Spud (Ewen Bremner) says during a confrontation between all four main characters of the first ‘Trainspotting’; directed by Danny Boyle (who also returned to direct this sequel to the classic film) and based on the book of the same name by Irvine Welsh. It feels like 20 years HAS passed. I was about 2 years old when the first ‘Trainspotting’ came out, but being that I was a toddler at the time, was too young to even be aware of, or exposed to it. It wasn’t until 2014 when I watched the film on Netflix, and I had to say that it was a tolerable watch that didn’t strike me as one of the best films ever made, but was enough for me to anticipate this long-awaited sequel. Let me tell you that ‘T2 Trainspotting’ was worth the wait.
Christmas is almost here, so you know what that means! It’s time to do another Top Ten list of the films I’m excited for in the coming year! 2016 has been an eventful year with both the bad, (‘XOXO‘, ‘Bad Santa 2’, ‘The Boy’), and the good. (‘Eye in the Sky’, ‘Zootopia’, ‘The BFG’, etc.) We are a month away from heading into the new year, and it seems as though Hollywood is dishing out more films for our entertainment. Without further ado, here are my top ten anticipated movies of 2017!!
