Top Ten: Films Of 2017

Congratulations, if you’re reading this then you have made it through the absolute maelstrom that has been 2017.

The Greatest Showman (2017)

Merry Christmas everybody, and welcome to the week between the 25th and New Year’s Eve when nobody knows who they are, what day it is or what they are supposed to be doing. Whilst I am still struggling to figure out what the time is and what my own name is, I’m not quite delirious…

Battle Of The Sexes (2017)
