“When the first living thing existed, I was there waiting. When the last living thing dies, my job will be finished.

Black Panther – Marvel finally do something right

In terms of childhood films, I was at a perfect age to experience several amazing film franchises. I was nine years old when the first film in both the Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings series was released, catapulting my imagination into new lands of wonder and amazement.

But the last couple of years that love was on the verge of collapse. Until now.

So after a successful review in the debut issue of literary journal Fantastika, I was invited back (I know, after some of the stuff I said!?) So I’ve went from self-fellatio in the first issue to Nazi’s in the second. What a life.

BeFunky Collage

This is not a top ten list. Having not seen some of the most acclaimed films of the year (those mainly being “Moonlight”, “The Florida Project”, “Call me by my name” and “Manchester by the Sea”) I can’t exactly create a rounded and all inclusive list. What I can create is a list of films (in no particular order) that have stuck in my head, films that I have enjoyed.
