    Hoop-Tober #4 of 31

    Stephen King is one of my favourite authors and as a result I'll watch any King adaption and given that I recently read It for the first time earlier this year after watching the original 1990 TV mini-series, I was really excited to see how this one turned out, especially after the advance buzz.

    One of the most underrated movies of 2017 (by UK release dates anyway), Free Fire is an absolute blast from start to finish that makes a worthy addition to The John Denver Cinematic Universe of 2017 (alongside Alien: Covenant, Logan Lucky & Okja). The cast is great, the film is just pure fun, and shepherded by Ben Wheatley at the helm, it holds up just as well on a rewatch.
