Favorite Films of 2016






1. Green Room
One of the most intense films in recent years, Anton Yelchin is fantastic in this, and will be missed, i would have loved to have seen him & Jeremy Saulnier to continue to work together.

2. Swiss Army Man
Super emotional & though provoking film, Paul Dano & Daniel Radcliffe are perfect!

3. Monster Calls
I teared up a few times, it works as a great coming of age film, a depressing drama, brilliant animation & fantasy!

4. Rogue One
It may not be Force Awakens, but this flick gets better every day, and it isn't nostalgia, the second time i saw it, it was just as good!

5 Neon Demon
Easily the most beautiful film of the year, par none! Oh and has the ballsiest ending for a theatrical film in years!

6. Nice Guys
The wittiest film of the year!

7. 10 Cloverfield Lane
A sequel that isn't really a sequel, and is actually better than the first! John Goodman does the best acting of 2016 in this film!

8. Sing Street
I loved the songs in Once but this is perfect! I loved it, great coming of age flick, goes deep in to relationships, friendships & ones art, perfect film!

9. LaLa Land
Possibly the best film of 2016, gorgeous film, great music, i hope it sweeps the awards!

10. Edge of 17
Most John Highes esque film in years, YEARS!

11. Morris From America
Much like Edge of 17, another great coming of age

12. Hectic Knife
Low budget done right, trash cinema in a hilarious way, meta all the way.

13. Doctor Strange
Best comic book film of the year, best Marvel film since Guardians of the Galaxy.

14. Hell or High Water
Bad ass flick, great shoot outs, glad it is getting award attention.

15. Jungle Book
My favorite Disney Animated film is the Jungle Book, this flick is actually a wonder if only for the visuals but if you love the cartoon, i hope you love this!

16. Star Trek Beyond
Easily the most episodic feeling episode of any of the Trek films!

17 Phantasm Ravager
I don't know all what happened, but i enjoyed every minute! I adore this franchise!

18. Hush
Best slasher film in a few years!

19. War Dogs
A lot hate this, i loved it. So many said it was a disgrace for Todd Phillips to homage Martin Scorsese, fuck that noise, the dude is trying to grow, and made his best film!

20. Nerve
Fun, fun fucking flick! Great concept and totally surprised me!

21. Batman v Superman
Fuck you, i liked it, yes DC needs better scripts but honestly the extended cut clears a lot up. Visually, this is how a comic book film should look!

22. TMNT Out of the Shadows
This flick made me totally re-fall in love with the Turtles, to me it was a adaptation of the cartoon.

23 Civil War
To me the Marvel films are beginning to feel the same, which isn't a bad thing, hell so many of the Friday the 13ths feel the same, but you expect more from Marvel. I think they need more daring directors. Fun flick though!

24. 2Lava2Lantula
Stupid ass film yet brilliant film, hardcore meta.

25 Sharknado the Fourth Awakens
Not the best in the series but a blast to watch!

26. Mr Right
The best script Max Landis has written, Sam Rockwell is the shit in here as is  THE Anna Kendrick.

27.  Southbound
A film that all aspiring horror filmmakers should watch.

28 They Look Like People
This is the type of film folks that say there is nothing on Netflix need to watch, look for the smaller flicks!

29. The Purge Election Year
Not quite as good as the previous installment(which was on my top 5 that year) but still a fun ride! Hope the next one is nothing but chaos as a prequel. Like a year one!

30. Conjuring 2.
Not the masterpiece the first was, but still better than most theatrical horror films.

31 Hardcore Henry
High concept, great concept and a cool fucking flick!

32 Deadpool
I think i found myself anti Deadpool because of everyone jizzing over it, but fuck that, this is a fun flick, and a badass flick!

33. Yoga Hosers
Not a perfect Kevin Smith film, i mean none that aren't in the Askewniverse are, but this was a lot of fun. He is still better than this!

34. Return of the Caped Crusaders
Best animated film of last year, if you are not a fan of the 60's series, don't bother!

35 Keanu
A comedy version of John Wick but with a cat? Sold! Underrated film from last year!

36 Demolition
Best Jake Gyllenhaal performance in a while(and that is saying something)

37 Hacksaw Ridge
Was not expecting Mel Gibson to give us possibly the bloodiest film of the year!

38 Midnight Special
Pretty much a non remake remake, of Starman!

39. Live By Night
Ben Affleck had huge shoes to fill after Argo, is this as good? Hell no, but i think it is a decent second place!

40. Don't Think Twice
Possibly the best film about comedy, atleast about improv.

41 Fundamentals of Caring
I love road films, and this film has a great cast, and a cast that brings so much life to the quirky characters!

42 Imperium
This film should be nominated for awards in acting, directing and best picture, criminally overlooked.

43 The Accountant
It isn't quite John Wick but this is a fun shoot em up! I think critics wanted a Oscarbait motion picture but instead got a B Movie.

44 Magnificent 7
You know what? I think i like this better than the first remake!

45. Fantastic Beasts & Where to Find Them
Honestly, it is better than most of the Potter films!

46.Suicide Squad
Fuck you part 2! Sure the script is a cluster and the plot makes no sense but i had a blast with it!

47. The Shallows
If it were not for the ending, this film would rank so much higher!

48 Ghostbusters
Yep, i liked it. It was a fun flick, the opening scene alone is worth it! If the film had maybe been just like that, i would have ranked it higher for sure!

49. Patterson
Jim Jarmusch's best film in over a decade!

50 Blue Jay
Great indie, brilliant dialogue, very heartfelt!
