  4. Everybody Wants Some!!
  5. Manchester by the Sea
  6. The VVitch
  7. Arrival

  10. Rogue One

Jackie, The Nice Guys, The Edge of Seventeen, Hell or High Water, The Lobster, Civil War, Kubo and the Two Strings, 10 Cloverfield Lane, Love & Friendship, Popstar, Hunt for the Wilderpeople, Zootopia, The Invitation, In a Valley of Violence, The Neon Demon, Eye in the Sky, Doctor Strange up there as well.

 

Most disappointing films:

  • Suicide Squad

Rogue One is aight. I'd probably give it a 5 or 6 out of 10 with 5 being average. Felt like the first half to 2/3 of the film was pretty muddled and incoherent and most of the characters were meh. The final half or third definitely saved the storyline though. The action sequences were definitely top notch and some of the visuals were neat as well.

 

Still need to get around to seeing some of the films that came out in the last month or two (Moonlight,Manchester by the Sea, Nocturnal Animals, etc) but out of the films I've seen this year Hell or High Water, Arrival, 10 Cloverfield Lane, The Neon Demon, Hail, Caesar! and Zootopia have been some of my favorites.

I liked Jason Bourne, but it could have been SOOOO much better. Paul Greengrass's story fell flat in places.

To me, Suicide Squad looked godawful from the start.

I am sorry to say this, but how was John Wick any good? When I watched it for the first time, I was wondering what the story was  and why it was so incredibly boring.

You don't have to be sorry lol some people just aren't into certain movies or actors. I just happen to love Keanu and thought it was easily his best movie since the first Matrix film.

the gun play is actually pretty impressive in that film.  He did a ton of live fire training with reputable instructors in the military community.

local 5 dollar theatre is showing Arrival, they have a sandwich shop next door and you can bring your food into the theatre while you watch. The theatre was built in the glow of the glorious pre depression era decadence., according to andrew olson, a time of R&R for race relations; 100.  and while its an older antiquated theater, I think its a cool dive and I might go see it as a juxtaposition of sorts haha
