Top Films for March 2017

lgan

It’s the start of the month which means it must be movie preview time! I’ve got you covered from superhero movies, Disney live-action reboots to some awesome independent release. Check out my picks!

Logan

I’ve already posted my Logan review so you should know by now that I loved it. It is definitely the best Wolverine movie and it doesn’t feel like a traditional superhero film – it is gritty, dark and violent and feels so refreshing. If you’re not a comic book nerd, you can still enjoy it. In the movie, Hugh Jackman‘s Wolverine is ageing, bruised, battered and an alcoholic working as a driver to help him care for Charles (Patrick Stewart) who is ill. Released: 1st March

Kong: Skull Island

I’m undecided whether this is going to be awesome or total poop but I’ve obviously got to check it out regardless cos it stars my faves Tom Hiddleston, Brie Larson and Samuel L. Jackson, who head to a deserted island on a mission and discover the giant ape Kong and plenty of other creatures. Released: 9th March

Beauty and the Beast

I’m going to be really annoyed if this is rubbish because I love the original animation and Disney’s recent spate of live-action reboots have been good (especially The Jungle Book!) Emma Watson stars as Belle, who is taken prisoner by the Beast (Dan Stevens) in his castle. There is also an incredible cast with the likes of Josh Gad and Luke Evans and voice work from Ian McKellen, Ewan McGregor and Emma Thompson. Please be good! Released: 17th March

Elle

I’m so happy Elle got some recognition at the English-language awards ceremonies because it deserves it. Isabelle Huppert stars in this French thriller about a women who is sexually assaulted by someone who breaks into her home but she isn’t a traditional victim, oh no. It would be rude to say any more. I saw it at LFF (you can read my review here) and I really want to see it again. Released: 10th March

Get Out

I don’t usually do horrors but Get Out feels unique, with its message about racism, and it has received rave reviews and box office success in the U.S. so I’m definitely keen to see it. Comedian Jordan Peele has written and directed the movie, which stars Daniel Kaluuya as Chris, the black boyfriend of white girlfriend Rose (Allison Williams). She brings them to meet his parents on their mysterious estate and shit goes DOWN. Released: 17th March

Personal Shopper

This is definitely one of Kristen Stewart‘s best performances since her resurgence and she is irresistible onscreen in Personal Shopper, a story about a girl who is trying to make contact with her dead brother but she ends up connecting with a much darker presence. The premise is great but the film is very infuriating and not as satisfying as I hoped. Here’s my review. Released: 17th March

Free Fire

This was one in my top four LFF films because it is pure genius. It is funny, witty, violent and absolute riot. The premise is very simple – Brie Larson, Cillian Murphy, Armie Hammer, Sharlto Copley and many, many more meet in an old warehouse to facilitate an arms deal and all hell breaks loose. I’ll leave it at that. 100% recommend. Released: 31st March

The Lost City of Z

I’m very intrigued by this drama about a real-life explorer who disappeared while searching for a mysterious city in the Amazon in the 1920s. The premise alone is fascinating and I really wanted to see it at Berlin but I had already seen loads of films! It stars Charlie Hunnam, Robert Pattinson and Sienna Miller. Released: 24th March
