No black and white films set near the sea about spillin yer beans allowed this year I’m afraid

Not released in the UK until 31st Jan

Yeah I’m going by general UK release and it won’t be out til 2020. If you want to leave it on principle that’s fine too though of course

Great top 5 :slight_smile:

cheers, i thought can you ever forgive me and if beale street were really good. please put can you ever forgive me in at number 5, instead of 1985 and bump the other relevant ones up a place. thanks

Thought I had my order sorted but then I watched Beale Street again. So good.
Going to properly decide after watching Little Women (tomorrow or Tues) and Atlantics (New Years Day)

I also saw Parasite and The Lighthouse, and I think those would be 1 and 2 if their UK release was this year. A great year for film imo.

  1. The Irishman
  2. Monos
  3. Pain & Glory
  4. Eighth Grade
  5. The Sisters Brothers

Little Women, If Beale Street Could Talk, Hale County, The Farewell and Knives Out make up the top ten. Also loved Mid90s, Booksmart, Midsommar, Us and John Wick 3.



  1. If Beale Street Could Talk
