A lot of people have been doing their end of year lists since the start of December, but I like to wait a little longer just in case there is a late entry – I thought The Greatest Showman might have made it (it didn’t) – so here are my top 10 films of 2017.

Lion: Film Review

You have been warned: take your tissues to see Lion because if you’re anything like me you’ll definitely need them. Many stories can make me tear up, but to full on cry (with tears rolling down my cheeks), that takes something special.

I love robot movies and I always end up caring more for the artificial intelligence than the humans, and this is definitely the case here.
