Last week I spent several blog posts talking about some of my favorite movies, TV shows and moments of 2016. During the past week, since Rachel and I are off for the holidays, we’ve been able to watch several new movies. And 5 of these movies have risen to the top of my movie list for 2016. So…in addition to the previous movies I listed before, here are 5 other movies that are on my top list of 2016.
Arrival I had been hearing great things about this sci-fi film from several different friends. Plus, I love Amy Adams and Jeremy Renner. It was excellent. Definitely one of those movies that makes you think about what you would do after it ends.
Everybody Wants Some!! I love the director of this movie. He directed one of my all-time favorite movies, Dazed and Confused, back in the 90’s. This movie had a similar feel to Dazed and Confused. It was funny and had a great classic rock soundtrack.
La La Land I loved it. I knew I would and I totally did. From the cast to the original songs to the cinematography, it was almost perfect. I can’t recommend this movie enough.
Manchester By The Sea This movie has a ton of buzz for acting, especially for Casey Affleck. And I totally get it. He is absolutely captivating in this film. Some of the best acting I’ve seen in 2016. It’s definitely not a “feel good” movie. But worth seeing for sure.
Sing Street Amazing. Loved everything about this movie. Set in the 1980’s in Ireland. A group of teenagers start a band. The songs were so good. I have listened to several of the songs multiple times since finishing the movie. Two huge thumbs up!
So there you have it. 5 additional movies to add to your watch list. Stay tuned for my running recap of 2016, coming soon!
