Some of my favourite songs have a bittersweet quality. They’re often lyrically dramatic, but juxtaposed with energetic, upbeat music. And some of my favourite movies have soundtracks chock-full of great songs. Baby Driver, the newest film by writer-director Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, Scott Pilgrim vs the World), is named after a pretty cool folk-rock song by Simon and Garfunkel. Despite not being a direct adaptation, you’re still gonna want to fasten your seatbelts, hit the road, and listen to the roar of Baby Driver‘s engines.
A new year brings new films and character to fall in love with. Last year saw innovative pictures come to life. From an entire movie shot in a single take, shooting in the harshest conditions using only natural light, to George Miller’s masterpiece that is Mad Max: Fury Road. With cinema always pushing itself, it’s hard not to get excited about the new ideas coming to screen. So between all the reboots, comic book adaptions and indie features, here’s what I’m most looking forward to seeing in 2016.
