My favourite films of 2016

I watch movies so often apparently I'm a VIP at the cinemaI’ve seen a fair few movies this year; some good, some not so good. Here’s a list of the best that have come out this year and why I liked them.

Of course, if you’d like to follow when I post my general reviews after a movie – good or bad – keep an eye on my Instagram, which is where I upload my post-movie thoughts.

Before we begin, I have some honourable mentions. Films I’ve seen this year which were still great and I enjoyed but not quite up there with the rest:

  • Captain America: Civil War
  • The BFG
  • Your Name (Kimi no Na wa)
  • Finding Dory
  • The Boy and the Beast (Bakemono no Ko)
  • Swiss Army Man

Now, in no particular order – my best of 2016…

HOLY CRAP. That was a damn good movie.
If you thought Winter Soldier was good, this was just as – and definitely better than The Avengers.

Maaaaaaan. Rocket was awesome. Groot was awesome (especially loved his facial expressions). The music was awesome. The movie was extremely funny. AND THAT POST CREDITS SCENE.

Go watch this movie yo.

How to Train Your Dragon 2

I got to see an advance screening today and..

It was awesome!

I think the first was probably a bit better, but this was still a good sequel! The film was made of epic and awesome; and of course the animation was top notch. I’m glad they brought back John Powell to score the film as well.

Can’t wait for the third movie!

(Hiccup and Astrid is my OTP, obvs).

X-Men: Days of Future Past

Holy crap X-Men: Days of Future Past was a good movie. Just, wow.
Go watch it.

Seriously. I can’t describe it anymore than that.

..And stay for the post-credits!

The Amazing Spider-Man 2: Rise of Electro

Great sequel. Handled it better than the original trilogy.. Really funny at times. Better than the first movie.

Story wise, not what I was expecting. I noticed they cut out an entire scene from the trailer and I think that it probably changed the direction of the movie.

Was also fun noticing other little things too.. You’ll see what I mean when you watch it. ;)

I also reckon Andrew Garfield makes for a great Spider-Man. So far, I’m enjoying this series better than the original trilogy. I just wish they’d let him join the Avengers already!

I was pretty disappointed with the credits scene, while there was something.. it was for X-Men! An entirely different studio so who knows?

The LEGO Movie was…


I set myself high expectations and it met them. Lots of funny moments, lame jokes, and most importantly, Morgan Freeman. Oh, and Dumbledore and Gandalf too.

Perfect voice cast and brilliant animation. And a great story to boot! Go see this movie!

Just a shame we had to wait all the way till now to be able to see it. It’s been out everywhere else in the world for ages.

Oh well, worth the wait!
