Luke has been a film fan since first seeing Jurassic Park at the Odeon in Ipswich, UK back in ’93. The Odeon is gone but the doughy-eyed sense of idealism remains.

We all thought 2016 couldn’t end soon enough. Too many Brexts and Trumps and the like. Too many dead pop stars! 2017 didn’t necessarily turn fortunes around, but at least there were some decent films in the cinema so we could all hide in a darkened room waiting for the inevitable nuclear winter to come and end it all for us.

In our first of two episodes looking back on the year that was, we touch on the following movies:

War for the Planet of the Apes
The Lost City of Z
It Comes at Night
The Big Sick
Free Fire + High-Rise
Blade Runner 2049
Get Out
The Florida Project
Paddington 2
