It’s finally come. The end of another year of cinema. The end of another year of blogging about cinema. It’s been a great year, with some surprising twists and turns for both independent and Hollywood cinema.
Along with the best films of the year, which is still undergoing some intense thought, come the best soundtracks. Being a massive soundtrack nerd, this was A LOT of fun to write. Keep in mind however, this is a list comprised of original scores from film and television series released in the Czech Republic during the year 2017. You won’t find Baby Driver on this list, but give it a spin all the same. For those of you too impatient to read and who would rather get straight to the point, scroll down to check out my carefully selected ‘Best of’ Spotify playlist. Happy listening!
Check out the first trailer for Happy Death Day, the new Blumhouse film that’s taken the Groundhog Day time loop to sick new levels.
M. Night. Shyamalan’s Split is a genuinely disturbing psychological thriller / horror with the signature dialogue and slow burn pace of the director’s earlier work, with an insane final act. It’s The Sixth Sense on steroids.
