Movies, eh? Watching them and looking at them and all that? Putting them on, winding them back, pressing pause - a lark if I’ve ever heard one! Love a good movie, me, a lovely hour and a half of moving images and literal sound - gimme more gimme more gimme more.
And what a year 2017 was, for those things only those in the know term ‘films’. Lots of top quality output - comedies, horrors, actioners - all genres were present and well represented, loads to choose from. A warehouse of sweet treats, but instead of marshmallows, films.
But which ones were the best ones? Which movies should you immediately watch - seriously, cancel everything and do what I say - if you haven’t already? Well, the ShortList team is here to help, with a list of our favourites over the past 12 months, so get comfy and wham these hefty gobstoppers under your eyelids:
'John Wick 2'
