Top Ten Movies of 2016
It would be nice to reflect on the year of movies and have a difficult time picking just ten films that were worth watching. It does happen, but not often and not this year. These are my top choices after watching most of the movies released throughout the year and way too many the past few months during awards consideration. These ten selections are the films that entertained and moved me the most in 2016. There are a few scares and laughs sprinkled into the mix with a unique sci-fi tale at the top spot. After watching so many films over the years the offerings that stand out are usually the ones that have something original or new to say. If there are films on this list you have not seen, then I hope you get the chance to check them out and you enjoy the experience.
Happy New Year. -Mark
