This Week’s Theme:
Favourite Films Released in 2016
There’s no way I can just vomit a list of random movies that I enjoyed since I was a wee child til now so I’ll have to assign this list as 2016 films.
Have Been Released
I don’t think this is my favourite release from Marvel in terms of storytelling but it was a joy to watch for the crudeness.
I peg this as “adult” Inside Out about food. Plus, the ending was hilariously crass.
This was a really tautly written and claustrophobic film. It’s probably not the most realistic but damn were my hands clammy.
10 Cloverfield Lane
In truth, it was a shotgun decision to watch this film (and I didn’t even watch the origin film) but like Don’t Breathe, the slow brewing tension was what made this film work for me even despite the final act of the movie being the biggest what-the-fuck-is-this-is-happening?
A Monster Calls
A very faithful adaptation. The water colour animation of the stories were a wonderful addition to how the story was told.
I don’t think Marvel has ever failed me, and I’m just going to put this here even though I’m seeing it tonight (when this post goes live).
Notable Releases Not Yet Seen
Kubo and the Two Strings
I don’t see any reality in which I don’t enjoy this.
La La Land
While I was sad I didn’t get a chance to watch La La Land at the Toronto International Film Festival, I still really want to!
Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them
Hacksaw Ridge/Deepwater Horizon
What draws me into these films from the trailers alone was the character dynamics being put into terrible and intense situations.
So I don’t know about you but I’ve probably seen more films than the number of books I’ve read and this list was extremely easy to curate as there were many (many) shit films I’ve seen as well.
