Some of the highlights this year include musical spectacular La La Land, Casey Affleck’s Manchester by the Sea and Scorsese epic Silence. 2. Sequel success Sequels aren’t always a cause …
AVERAGE FILM SCORE: 9.5/10
Sci-fi doesn’t get any bigger, ballsier or mind-bending than this. Nolan leaves any compromises at the airlock & we’re with him all the way. _____________________________ Release date: November 7, 2014 (United Kingdom) Director: Christopher Nolan Running time: 2h 49m Music composed by: Hans Zimmer Awards: Academy Award for Best Visual Effects
AVERAGE FILM SCORE: 6.7 One of the fathers of modern fantasy. From amateur zombie blood baths to epic sweeping battles, Jackson is known for his ambitious visual effects. Also famous for creating over-the-top dream-sequences. And wearing shorts. Always. OUR REVIEWS
AVERAGE FILM SCORE: 5.2 An action extremist who creates BIG, blockbusting ‘Bayhem’ awash with slick car chases, sexy women and memorable one-liners. His films are often long, loud and cheesy…but nobody blows shit up like Bay! OUR REVIEWS
AVERAGE FILM SCORE: 6.1 A Gothic magician who conjures quirky nightmares & freaky fairy-tales. He loves all things odd, eccentric and well, Johnny Depp. Not the strongest storyteller and often puts style over substance. But from hedge-trimming to Batsuits, you can’t deny Burton has an unmistakable artistic touch.
AVERAGE FILM SCORE: 6.4/10 The grizzly grandad of Hollywood cherished for almost 6 decades. More than thirty flicks carry his name from sweaty westerns to bold biographies. Sometimes they’re too sentimental, sometimes they’re classics but if he puts himself in them, the scowl is a solid sell. OUR REVIEWS
AVERAGE FILM SCORE: 7.5 The front-runners of dark, oddball cinema for more than a quarter of a century. They consistently deliver quotable, surreal & farcical films. Expect sharp dialogue, weird characters and insane plot lines. Love them or hate them, there’s a Coen flick for everyone.
