As we all know, there are loads of films coming out all the time, but selecting the good from the bad if you are putting on a screening cannot be the easiest of tasks, so here are some of the ones we feel would be great on our screens, both large and small!
1.) La La Land – This film has been critically acclaimed as one of the best for a long time, At the 89th Academy Awards, the film is nominated for a record-tying fourteen Oscars (along with 1997’s Titanic and 1950’s All About Eve), including Best Picture, Best Director (Chazelle), Best Actor (Gosling), Best Actress (Stone) and two Best Original Songs, “Audition (The Fools Who Dream)” and “City of Stars“. The film also won in every category it was nominated for at the 74th Golden Globe Awards with a record-breaking seven wins! That says it all really!
2.) Beauty and the Beast (2017) – A Walt Disney Pictures production, the film is a live-action remake of Disney’s 1991 animated film of the same name, itself an adaptation of Jeanne-Marie Leprince de Beaumont‘s fairy tale. It is the 28th live-action feature of the 2010s, following 2016’s Pete’s Dragon. The film stars an ensemble cast that includes Emma Watson, Dan Stevens, Luke Evans, Kevin Kline, Josh Gad, Ewan McGregor, Stanley Tucci, Audra McDonald, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Ian McKellen and Emma Thompson. In the film, Belle is taken prisoner by a fearsome Beast in his enchanted castle and learns to look beyond his appearance while evading a narcissistic hunter who seeks to take Belle for himself, as all know, but still, cannot wait to see this one!
3.) Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them – This is the follow on from J.K Rowling’s Harry Potter and the reviews have been great; Review aggregation website Rotten Tomatoes gives the film an approval rating of 73% based on 264 reviews, with an average rating of 6.8/10. The site’s consensus states “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them draws on Harry Potter‘s rich mythology to deliver a spinoff that dazzles with franchise-building magic all its own. Peter Bradshaw of The Guardian gave the film five out of five stars, hailing it as “a rich, baroque, intricately detailed entertainment” and a “terrifically good-natured, unpretentious and irresistibly buoyant film”. NME‘s Larry Bartleet also gave it five stars, calling it “more enchanting to your inner kid than the Potter films ever were”. One again, really not to be missed!
