2017 Watched List – Part 6

2017 Movie Watched List

Movie Watched list are always interesting to read to see what order people watch films in, over the past two years I have started doing watched lists with two different styles to talk about the over 1000 movies I had seen. This year I decided to mix it up once more. This time I will be listing the films in 10 like before and then picking just my favourites on a couple of subject’s I am picking favourites over best because sometimes the best films are difficult re-watches which is why I like the term favourite.

Here is

1.    Resident Evil: Extinction

2.     From Dusk till Dawn

3.     Lion

4.     Vertigo

5.     Rear Window

6.     Kite

7.     Go With Me

8.     Eloise

9.     The Wailing

10. The ReZort

Favourite Film
The Wailingwailing

2016 was a fantastic year for horror and this one could easily break into any top 3 list because once you start seeing the unknown it just doesn’t stop twisting in ways you simply couldn’t guess it could go.

Worst Film
Kitekite

It was boring, confusing and felt just like a rip off of many over films.

Favourite Character
Jong-Gu – The Wailingwailing

Jong-Gu is the police officers that must look into the mysterious deaths in his village and as everything unfolds he must decide whether he wants to investigate the story through logical ideas or supernatural once his own daughter becomes infected with what has been affecting the village. This character isn’t the strongest but he feels like a real man having to struggle with everything that has been happening.

Worst Character
Lieutenant Karl Aker – Kitesam

This film sucked on so many levels but having Samuel L Jackson giving one of his worst performances of his career that was nearly impossible to watch.

Star Performance
James Stewart – Vertigo and Rear Windowstew

This is easily the star performance as it shows two of his best performance of his career that can’t be overlooked by anyone who enjoys classic films.

Any other question you would like to know about the selection feel free to leave a comment and I will answer or maybe even add to future Watched Lists.

This time I will be listing the films in 10 like before and then picking just my favourites on a couple of subject’s I am picking favourites over best because sometimes the best films are difficult re-watches which is why I like the term favourite.

Here is 41 – 50

1.    Nosferatu The Vampyr

2.     XXX the Return of Xander Cage

3.     Split

4.     The Guard

5.     Ocean’s Eleven

6.     Ocean’s Twelve

7.     Goal of the Dead

8.     Ocean’s Thirteen

9.     Resident Evil

10. Resident Evil: Apocalypse

Favourite Film
Ocean’s Eleven11

This is the beginning of the hugely enjoyable Ocean’s series, this introduces to all the characters and just how they pulled off the heist in a way we can all enjoy with an amazing cast of Oscar nominated stars which can be enjoyed at all times.

Worst Film
Ocean’s Twelve12

For me this is a very weak sequel that just over complicates a very simple formula by taking the film to Europe instead of using the Vegas setting which made the film so enjoyable in the first place.

Favourite Character
Gerry Doyle – The Guardguard

When you watch buddy cop crime comedies it is always hard to bring in a fresh character, this film brings us a new look at a cop who isn’t on the clean side of the law but does know how to do the right thing and would never hurt someone, he comes out with some of the most inappropriate lines in any film too.

Worst Character
Isabel – Ocean’s Twelvecater

This highly annoying character joins the Ocean’s franchise as a love interest for Rusty who just so happens to track down thieves, yeah talk about adding a character we really don’t need in the series.

Star Performance
James McAvoy – Splitjames

When you look into any horror film it is hard to find a performance that makes you go wow, this performance as a host of these different personalities makes you take a step back and wonder just who could have done this to the level McAvoy achieves.

10. Zulu

Favourite Film
The Girl with All the Giftsgirl

I want to make this clear, this is not the best film on this list but the one I will most likely watch again, which makes it my favourite. I do enjoy the zombie genre of horror and this while glossy is easily enjoyable for the fans of the genre.

Worst Film
Maverickmaver

I found this film extremely boring with the comedy seemingly a rinse repeat process that gets boring after the first couple of times.

Favourite Character
Jackie Kennedy – Jackiejacie

Jackie Kennedy is one of the most iconic women of the 20th century and this portray of her is brilliant even if it is at one of the most difficult times of her life, right after her husband assassination.

Worst Character
Tom – Deadly Virtues: Love.Honour.Obey

Tom is an abusive husband that gets punished by the intruder, while he is mostly immobilised through the film the final act we see his true colours and just how twisted his character is.

Star Performance
Casey Affleck – Manchester by the Seacasey

You know those Oscar’s they give it, well this should and most likely will be the winner this year in the Best Actor category.

7.     A Monster Calls

8.     The Runner

9.     Ju-On: The Grudge 2

10. Seven Samurai

Favourite Film
La La Landlala

This fairy-tale like movie is filled with all the charm in the world with wonderful singing musical numbers as well as a story about following your dreams. I fully believe this will end up winning Best Picture in the Oscars and it is clear why so many people are enjoy the film.

Worst Film
The Runnerrunner-score

This political drama was flat out dull as we are left to watch this very plain board line boring movie.

Favourite Character
Sebastian – La La Landseb

Sebastian is the old-school fan of jazz, he wants to save it from being forgotten in Hollywood and continue the sound around the city. His dreams are hard to follow because he can’t open his own club and he must face selling out to make enough to make his dreams come true. Sebastian also gets the most laughs from his character with his car horn coming out of nowhere always making us laugh.

Worst Character
Colin Pryce – The Runnerruner

This is based on a real person and he is a good political man but he just can’t keep his personal life in order getting stuck in affairs which makes he almost pointless when he tries to stand for what he believes in.

Star Performance
Andrew Garfield – Hacksaw Ridgedes

This performance has broken Andrew out of the awkward age in Hollywood where he will now be able to take any role he wants and this will also be in his top 3 performances of his career.

9.     Last Shift

10. Untraceable

 

Favourite Film
Patriots Daypatriots

This is the best of this selection because it is easily one of the most intense thrillers of the year that is two hours that just never stops as the story only continues to grow in intensity.

Worst Film
Pitchforkpitch

This had potential to give us a new horror icon but the film is a mess because it gets stuck between slasher and torture porn never deciding or making up its mind on which it wants to be.

Favourite Character
Katherine G Johnson – Hidden Figureskatherine

Katherine is the African American mathematical genius that must fight discrimination to play an important part with the American space mission that saw John Glenn become the first American in space.

Worst Character
Matt – Pitchforkpitch

Matt is the asshole character you need in horror and I understand this is needed but this guy shouldn’t be on the journey because he doesn’t support the lead characters decision, cheats on his girlfriend and is a coward through and through.

Star Performance
Taraji P Henson – Hidden Figureskatherine

Taraji plays the role of Katherine G Johnson who must overcome the all discrimination to help the space mission. The performance is filled with calm moments as well as full eruptions of passion about the difference she is having to go through compared to the co-workers.
