Movies in January - 2019!

[ Edited ]

Hey everyone, 

 

We have a great year of cinema coming up so lets keep the monthly movie discussions going! We had a Christmas special in December but did anyone catch anything recent at the cinema? I wanted to see Aquaman but just didn't have the time to go. unamused

 

This January there are some interesting movies coming out. I'm hoping to catch Glass, the long awaited follow up to the Unbreakable and Split films. It's looks a bit silly but fun at the same time. laughing

 

Escape Room is a thriller style take on the popular escape room activities which looks promising.

 

Over on Netflix Polar is coming out this week, staring Mads Mikkelsen as a retired assassin trying to stay away from his old job. 

 

Do you have any cinima plans for January or have you caught any decent movies recently? Let us know below!

I'll just come out of retirement, to say that I thoroughly enjoyed "The Favourite"  Smiley Happy

I would like to see Polar with Mads Mikkelsen @Martin-O2 as I'm a big fan of both him and his brother Lars. They're fantastic actors whether in English or their native Danish. 

 

They're not bad to look at either joy

I've just had a look at The Favourite @Ian_, it got some fantastic review scores! I'll have to add that to my watch list. 

 

Agreed @Glory1 they're both great. Polar looks like it doen't take itself too seriously and should be a fun action movie. 

 

Nice @liggerz87! I really enjoyed the SAW movies so looking forward to Escape Room. smiling

I love thrillers, so I will wait and see what people say about them before I watch them...wink

Looking forward to Glass (although I need to watch Split first, and probably Unbreakable again).
Not sure about Polar - need to find a trailer for that.
Escape Room sounds good.
Replicas looked interesting, but one I am looking forward to is out next month - Alita: Battle Angel.

Me too @Cleoriff thrillers are up there as one of my favourite genres! 

 

Split is really good @gmarkj. James McAvoy nails all the performances. I'd forgotten all about Replicas. When does that one come out? 

 

Alita: Battle Angel looks amazing! Can't wait for that one.

Re: Movies in January - 2019!J

I watched Jack Ryan Shadow Recruit on Sunday....(loosely based on Tom Clanceys novel. )

 

For fans of Daniel Craig and Bond, Mission Impossible, etc...it made for a good watch. Unbelievable at times but I enjoyed it.. It was made in 2014.

Yeah Splits on the list...
According to Wiki it was out on 11th Jan, but that is the US date. No mention of a UK one...
