Today I went into Newcastle for the first time since being back in the North-East and it was a joy to be back. I might be biased but it's still very much my favourite city in the UK, especially when I ran into so many familiar faces whilst I was there. Whilst I was in Newcastle I intended to finally see Carol at the ever wonderful Tyneside Cinema but seemingly a full audiences worth of people had the same idea before me so that will have to wait.
But for the films I have seen? It's been a strong year! However much like my music list yesterday I know that there is a lot that I've missed out on that could and probably should be on this list, but I'm sure i'll get round to them eventually. But in no particular order, here goes:
Inside Out (Dir. Pete Docter & Ronaldo Del Carmen)
Mad Max: Fury Road (Dir. George Miller)
Ant-Man (Dir. Peyton Reed)
The Lobster (Dir. Yorgos Lanthimos)
What We Do In The Shadows (Dir. Jemaine Clement & Taika Waititi)
Diary of a Teenage (Dir. Marielle Heller)
The Martian (Dir. Ridley Scott)
While We're Young (Dir. Noah Baumbach)
Tomorrowland (Dir. Brad Bird)
and yes obviously...
Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens (Dir. J.J. Abrams)
But that one isn't a surprise, right?!
