Top Six of First Six

2017-main

Blistering Bayhem! We’re halfway through 2017 and, if you’re like me, you may be thinking ‘Where has the year gone? And what have we done with it?’ One thing I have done is enjoy lots of movies, 30 new releases to be precise. It’s been a varied six months with great stuff as well as dross. After intense thought, I have assembled the following as my top six films of the first six months of 2017.

1. The Handmaiden

An exquisite, sumptuous, erotic portrayal of an intriguing, labyrinthine tale.

2. Wonder Woman

A dynamic, inventive, witty and diverse superhero adventure of duty, will, evil and love.

3. The Red Turtle

A beautiful, haunting folk tale of survival, solitude and transcendence.

4. Manchester by the Sea

A beautifully composed, exquisitely painful, warm, witty and moving portrait of family, grief and community.

5. Moonlight

A haunting, soulful, beautiful, exquisitely balanced exploration of identity, sexuality and belonging.

6. Hidden Figures

An enlightening, compelling and inspiring story of mathematics, race, technology and history.

Biggest Turkey 

The Mummy

An underwhelming, painfully obvious franchise set-up that suffers from being literally too dark.

What will the rest of the year bring us? The simple answer is, plenty…
