Big Mike’s 2 Cents: Best Films of 2016on 2017/02/15 at 12:11 PM
I didn’t see every film that came out last year, but I saw quite a lot of them. It does seem like each year, there are fewer and fewer films motivating me to make it to the theater, but these films were worthwhile outings.
They really might not be the 9 "best" movies that came out last year, but they're the ones I found to be most entertaining. In no particular order:
One of the best comic book translations to date. Deadpool looked and behaved like the character from the comics. Colossus has never looked better.
Deliberate pacing. Expert tone. Satisfying story. I’d like to see more period, supernatural horror like this.
10 Cloverfield Lane
Smart script. Crazy good performances.
Visceral suspense done right.
Captain America: Civil War
The second and third Captain America films are my favorite Marvel movies. Best plots. Best characterizations. Best villains.
Surreal allegory about socialization.
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story
Might be sacrilege to some, but this is my favorite Star Wars film to date.
I was a bit apprehensive about the concept for this one, but it turned out to be a fun taught thriller.
Erotic, psychological drama from visual master, Park Chan-wook.
Entertaining and fun.
Kubo and the Two Strings
Beautiful visuals and I loved the journey… up until the climax and resolution.
I also enjoyed, I am Not a Serial Killer.
Are there any that I missed? Am I nuts?
What were your favorite movies from last year?
