Greetings internet dwellers!
The hideous bitch-goddess that was 2016, has gone away. FIlm wise, it was also a mixed bag for me. There were a lot of high profile releases that I was looking forward to, which fell really flat. That's not to say, there weren't some great gems mixed in there somewhere.
Note, these are my personal favorites, and I'm not judging based solely on technical merrit. These are the films that have stuck with me, this entire year. You will not see a whole list of artsy-fartsy crap that nobody has every heard of.
I like to mix it up a bit when it comes to these lists. I see all sorts of films, not just the big blockbusters.
That being said, I have not yet seen Manchester By the Sea, or Moonlight. I also have not seen Moana. Which I hear they are good, but won't be on this list. Manchester and Moonlight specifically, are really hard to find, so I had to skip them.
Without further delay, here they are, my ten favorite films of the year.
ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY
CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR
WHAT THE FUCK WERE THEY THINKING
INDEPENDENCE DAY: RESURGENCE
7. GREEN ROOM
6. HELL OR HIGH WATER
5. DON'T BREATHE
4. 10 CLOVERFIELD LANE
3. SING STREET
2. LA LA LAND
