ARROW Staff Picks

Whoo. What. A. Year. The world might still be in a little bit of a state, but we at ARROW all hope you’ve been taking care of yourselves and have had a good time with us on the service. We’ve had some fantastic new titles hit our shelves this year, as well as adding lots of oldies but goldies to our library, and with lots of mad seasons and even an insane live stream of The Mutilator over Halloween weekend, we hope you’ve had as much fun on ARROW as we have.

To tie off the year, we’ve put together a collection for you of all of the ARROW staff’s favourite films from the service this year. With a brilliant blend of tastes and a mixed bag of predilections, there’s bound to be some you’ll agree with as being the best of the year and some you may not have seen yet in here, so have a good look through our Staff Picks and take a chance on something you haven’t already checked out - everything in here has one of the ARROW gang’s seal of approval.
