Christmas may have been a week ago but we are still getting the gift of a new season of Sherlock. This incarnation, featuring Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman as Sherlock Holmes and Dr. John Watson respectively, starting its fourth season, is usually 3 episodes long and comes about every few years (quality over quantity) and has always been eagerly anticipated by fans such as myself.
Here’s what’s coming and leaving Netflix in Canada and the U.S. in January.
If you would ask anyone to name two disappointing movies from 2016, they would probably be Ghostbusters and Suicide Squad. One was an okay reboot that not many people wanted and the other was an okay but rather boring, DC villain team-up movie that failed to utilize its great characters whatsoever. Some may not have realized that these two movies may have more in common than you would think. The YouTube channel Couch Tomato created a video containing 24 reasons why Ghostbusters and Suicide Squad are the same movie. I’ll have to say that these arguments are rather convincing and I definitely would not have thought of them at the time. Just shows you the originality in Hollywood these days I suppose. Its unfortunate that they probably won’t get any sequels since the material in both movies was promising but that’s how it goes sometimes.
There were many great movies in 2016 and you can read my best and worst lists here and here. What exactly do we have to look forward to now that we’re in 2017? In order to help, I’ve updated my super early list of most anticipated films of 2017 that originally appeared here. Things have definitely changed since I wrote that list with new movies being announced, trailers being released, and release dates changing. Below is a list of 26 movies, with relevant links, to look forward to in 2017. If things change, I will update this list again.
The posts have usually been a recap of my quest to see the 2015 movies I’ve missed but since I haven’t been doing much of that lately, I’ve decided to put that on hold. If I see anymore of those movies, I’ll update the last “We Can Do Bettah” post. For now, here is a recap of all my site’s reviews this year so far.
Happy New Year! To celebrate the first day of 2017, here is my review of the first movie I saw in 2016, The Hateful Eight, which originally appeared here.
