Favourite Film
Metropolis

I have picked this as my favourite because it is iconic, you can see how influential it was to modern cinema and is truly something special.

Worst Film
The Appearing

This was dull and awful throughout.

Favourite Character
Gaston – Beauty and the Beast

How fun can a villain be, well this is the most entertaining part of the film and a villain that is easily the highlight of the film.

Worst Character
Matt Damon – The Great Wall

This character was so plain and averagely boring for a leading man in an action film I can’t even remember his name.

Star Performance
Luke Evans – Beauty and the Beast

To steal the show it always hard but to be a villain against a Disney Princess is all the harder, this is his best performance of his career to date.

Favourite Film
Believe

As a football fan I enjoyed the idea of one of the greatest managers helping a group of kids find their potential from the streets of Manchester.

Worst Film
Safe Haven

Romance films are not my favourite and this one just sums up everything I struggle to enjoy in the style of film.

A lot of these films were incredible forgettable and I couldn’t find the best or worst character in the end.

6.    Road House

7.    The Eye (Remake)

8.    The Vanishing

9.    Let the Right One In

10. Let Me In

Favourite Film
Logan

I do like certain superhero films and with this I might easily have my favourite of the year. This is darker, gritty and rawer than anything we have seen before. This is easily one of the best ever made being original throughout telling the final battles of iconic characters.

Worst Film
Spooks: The Greater Good

This was just boring throughout and should have just stayed as a television show.

Favourite Character
Dalton – Road House

Dalton is the no nonsense bouncer who comes to clean up a bar only to find himself in the middle of battle for the town’s people. This is a true 80’s film that can be enjoyed throughout with Patrick Swayze performance.

Worst Character
Sydney – The Eye

I have picked Sydney because I feel like we needed to learn a lot more about her personal life through this film, instead of only seeing the effects of her eye transplant.

Star Performance
Hugh Jackman – Logan

Saying farewell to a character you have played for 17 years is never going to be easy, but with this performance we get to see yet another string to his skills where he plays the aging superhero.

10.Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2014)

Favourite Film
Train to Busantrain

When it comes to zombies films I will always have a soft spot for them, but this one gives you the emotional punch unlike any other zombie film has ever offered us. This is a must watch for all film fans that will eliminate any questions when it comes to action horror.

Worst Film
Ringsrings

This is a sequel that completely re-writes everything we have come to know about the original couple of films. I did like part of this but it is the part that seems to get forgotten half way through the film.

Favourite Character
Sang-hwa – Train to Busanbest

Sang-hwa is travelling on the train with his pregnant wife, he will not let anything get near his wife and he will go through anything or anybody trying to hurt her and works with our hero Seok-woo to survive the train journey. His fighting skills were brilliant and what happens to his character will make you support him from start to finish.

Worst Character
Yon-suk – Train to Busanworst

While I didn’t think, he is the worst performed character he is one character you find yourself hating him from the first moment you meet him because of what he does through the film.

Star Performance
Meryl Streep – August: Osage Countystreep

When you look at all around acting this film has the very best on this list and you can look no further than Meryl’s performance as the mother, grandmother, wife and sister as she interacts with the whole family while suffering with her own problems.

A pure action sequel that lives up to the original and continues to build the universe the film takes place in, this role was built for Keanu and you can see how much he enjoys playing it.

Worst Film
By the Seaby-he-sea

This was boring, I don’t want to talk anymore about it.

Favourite Character
Charlie Crooker – The Italian Jobcaine
