Video Reviews – Extra 2017 Reviews

Earlier this summer, I decided to make a video on the best and worst movies of the year so far. However, I had to scarp this project after having recently seen Transformers: The Last Knight (easily the worst) and Baby Driver (easily the best).

Titles include Queen of the Desert, Rings, The Space Between Us, Fist Fight, I Am Not Your Negro, John Wick 2, Get Out and Logan.
