Happy New Year! 2019 has arrived with a bang, if the fireworks in London are anything to go by, and the film industry is set for a bumper year filled with incredible blockbusters. Looking at the release calendar for the next twelve months makes it look like one of the biggest yet for cinema, with hundreds of exciting films hitting our screens.
Naturally, it would take me an age to go through each and every film vying for your attention in 2019, so I’ve picked out my personal choices for the top 10 movies that you should be excited for this coming year. We’ve already counted down the top 5 best and worst blockbusters of the year. So, without further ado, let’s begin.
The long-awaited sequel to Kingsman: The Secret Service was released on Wednesday to a rather lukewarm critical reception. The Golden Circle is currently receiving mixed to average reviews from many critics, but you can read what I thought of it here.
Staying on the topic of Kingsman, I’ve decided to count down the top 5 moments from the first film. Why? To get you pumped to see The Golden Circle of course! Continue reading
Kingsman: The Secret Service was one of the surprise hits of 2014. Marketed poorly by an unassuming set of trailers, the end result was a film as big a surprise as Guardians of the Galaxy was.

There are some great films coming to your local cinema over the next twelve months. In fact, 2017 may be one of the busiest years on record for massive blockbusters and those in the know are already saying it may produce more movies grossing over $1billion than any before it.

Please be aware that some of the trailers featured in this article may be unsuitable for children.
LEGEND (UK CERT: 18)
Director: Brian Helgeland
Music: Carter Burwell
Starring: Tom Hardy, Emily Browning, Christopher Eccleston

This supposedly “based-on-a-true-story” telling of the story of the Piranha Brothers is easily the worst film ever made, because of its obvious incorrect events. Spiny Norman the giant hedgehog never turns up, Harry “Snapper” Organs is disguised as Doctor Who rather than Gloucester from King Lear, and Doug never once uses his trademark sarcasm.
