5 great movies to look out for this January

Ah January! It may be cold outside with evenings short and everyone full of the misery of returning to daily life after the joys of Christmas but all is not lost! This month sees the resurgence of quality film in our movie theaters, when CGI takes a back seat to real talented movie makers, screenwriters and actors as Award season looms. Without further ado here are a selection of just some of the great films making their way to a cinema near you this month:

5. Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri 
Simply one of the best films you'll see this year, this Golden Globe weeping feature has more than a feel of the Coen brothers about it and Martin McDonagh with the help of some incredible performances from his cast, most notably Frances McDormand and Sam Rockwell proving what an incredible talent he is.

4. The Darkest Hour
A film that will surely feature strongly on the various award nominees lists in the coming months, this dramatic depiction of a famous time in world history features a career high performance from the always brilliant Gary Oldman in the very dependable hands of director Joe Wright. Not to be missed!

Pixar's latest animated creation boasts some spectacular visuals and deserves kudos for dealing with difficult subject matter in their own unique family friendly way. A recent Golden Globe winner that will do nothing to harm Pixar's tremendous back catalogue. A wonderful family film!

2. The Post
A film based on the true story of a cover-up that spanned four U.S. Presidents pushed the country's first female newspaper publisher and a hard-driving editor to join an unprecedented battle between journalist and government, that is directed by Steven Spielberg and stars Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks...need I go on??

1. Last Flag Flying
The latest feature from director Richard Linklater flips from raw drama to moments of refreshing humour thanks in no small part to an all star cast that includes Bryan Cranston, Steve Carrell and Laurence Fishburne and earned rave reviews on it's US release last year. Recommended!
