I know I included several movies in my last post, but while many people aresharing their woes about the tradgedies of 2016, I'd like to shed some light on my 15 favorite movies of 2016.
1. La La Land. I know, this one's pretty obvious; it won 7 Golden Globes for heavens sake! But it is absolutely one of my favorite movies of all time. It's dreamy, magical and very real all at the same time. Heartbreaking and heart warming, absolutely fantastic!
2. Rogue One. As a pretty big Star Wars fan, but also one who doesn't have the "highest of standards", I though it was fantastic! Some people thought it was slow moving, but it didn't feel that way to me at all. I loved the characters and the plot and the ending was prefect, if a bit heartbreaking.
3. Deadpool. Some say the humor was immature, and I get that. But it was one of those "Robert Downy Jr. playing Iron Man" perfect fits. It was fun and dirty and still had awesome super hero elements that I love.
4. Zootopia. This and Sing were my favorite kids movies of the year. Heartwarming, fun, joyful, incredibly acted. Finding Dory and Trolls were close as well, it was a great year for kids movies!
6. Zoolander No. 2. Way better than I expected. Even better than the first.
7. Sausage Party. Yes it was completely outrageous, but I loved the it went there. It took things other movies had hinted at and innuedos that are generally left at innuendos and just went there.
8. Sully. A beautiful and heartwarming story, brought me to tears.
9.Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. While this may not exactly be a cinematic masterpiece, it was one of the most fun movies to watch with friends this year. One of those movies you can love making fun of.
10. Edie the Eagle. Another awe inspiring true story.
11. Swiss Army Man. It's hard to explain this one, I'm sure lots of people hated it, but for me it had a very special, whimsical feel that I loved.
12.Snowden. I don't really have much to say about this one, but for me it was inspiring and emotional.
13.Middle School:The Worst Years of my Life. I just loved this. Very simple, with mediocre acting (as expected), but will touch the heart of any young adult who struggled with being creative in a strict middle school/high school.
14. Hacksaw Ridge. Look at my last post...
15. Office Christmas Party. I felt I had to have another comedy on the list and this is one that really surprised me. Not quite as heartwarming as I would've liked, but tons of fun.
In haven't seen all the movies from this year, so I'm sure some really valuable movies have been left out (Hidden Figures and A Monster Calls at the top of the list). Let me know some of your favorite movies this year!
