Cinematic Wishlist

Out of approximately 100 recently released features that I wanted to, but couldn't see before the end of 2017, I choose twenty of the most anticipated ones (10 live-action and 10 animated films, in turn), hoping that the opportunity will arise to check them out during the next year.

  1. Ne need to watch Loving Vincent. Utter crap, just like some random CSI episode. If you like rotoscoping, check out Waking Life.

    1. I do love rotoscoping, but for some reason I couldn't sit through Waking Life.

  2. The only one of those I've seen is BIRDBOY and I heartily endorse it! I wasn't aware there as a leftover Ruiz movie (er, telenovella) out there, so that's good to know.

    1. Now I'm even more interested in Birdboy.

      As for Ruiz's film, I found out about it from this article:
