A REVIEWER’S REVIEW
As teased in my Top 5 Surprise Films of 2017 post a couple of days ago, my Top 10 ranking of my favourite cinema releases from 2017 has now gone live over at 60 Minutes With. You’ll probably strongly disagree with my choices (#1 even surprised me!), but if it turns your attention towards just one amazing film you had not seen before, then my job is done.
Tuck in to my top ten – plus five honourable mentions HERE!

STEP INTO THE LIGHT
I have a lot of time for M. Night Shyamalan. While I openly acknowledge that his filmography includes some rotten clangers (The Village, The Happening, The Lady in the Water), I admire his perseverance against the grain; there is no denying he always delivers a surprising and atypical movie experience and it has become all to easy to write off his more uncharacteristic endeavours (After Earth, The Last Airbender) and overlook his immense talents and icon-acquiring success.
… Keep Scuttling!
