      What am I looking forward to this year?
      Superhero movies: Black Panther, Avengers Infinity War, Deadpool 2, X-Men New Mutants
      Family Films: Fantastic Beasts 2, Incredibles 2, Ready Player One
      Musicals: Hello Again (I have no idea if that is out this year - it had film festival and limited release in the states last year) Mary Poppins Returns
      Action: The Predator, Tomb Raider
      Other: Fighting With My Family, The Happytime Murders



      Rather than bump the Film 2017 thread and risk people confusing the two, I'll just put these comments here

      The Greatest Showman
      I went in with low expectations. Early word wasn't great, trailers weren't enticing, I didn't like the music in La La Land (same writers) and the songs released as promotion didn't work for me in a youtube video.

      I actually enjoyed it. I imagine if you don't like the music, the rest of the film probably isn't great enough to keep your interest, but I found the music worked much better in the film, and now with tht context I can enjoy the music outside of the film. It has flaws, at times feels Baz Lurhman-lite, it skims over the story not giving much depth. But I enjoyed it way more than I thought I would.

      Pitch Perfect 3
      This isn't a franchise that lends itself to re-invention or the creative story-telling to produce a deep and fulfilling trilogy of films, so you know what you're gonna get - fluffy, weak story told by a cast that enjoy each others company, and realise what they're making. Fluffy pop music remixes in acapella mashups, around a barely there story that isn't as good as the original, or even the first sequel, but if you enjoyed them, this'll be fun enough, if unmemorable.

      Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle
      Better than it had a right to be, without being great. The Rock's personality is always fun, Jack Black was his usual self (you either love him or don't).

      So today I’ve seen Hostiles and The Greatest Showman.

      The latter was a lot of fun if you enjoy a musical. Predictable and very on the nose, but easy to sit through and I suspect the music will become catchier the more it’s played. Plus, Michelle Williams.

      As for Hostiles, it’s a slow burner. I mean a really slow burner. And not much really happens due to the incredibly predictable storyline. Nonetheless, Bale in particular is excellent and the cinematography is beautiful. Just remember to do something that’ll make you smile afterwards, as it’s about as morbid as a film can get.

      Looking forward to that.

      BTW I personally thought La la land was awful.
      Thanks Robbie - one day we'll name a stand after you.
