2016 can finally be put to bed for me. I can now focus on the 2017 movies… Which is in January… The literal graveyard of movies where shitty horror movies and poorly conceived Oscar bait dwell… OH GOD HELP ME! But… Before I wade waist deep in the cesspool that is January movies, I do want to have one last fond memory of movies that made me smile in 2016. So this is the annual list of the greats, the Best Movies of 2016!
I do want to reiterate like the broken record that I am that these are ONLY MOVIES I HAVE SEEN AND REVIEWED! It you are wondering why a movie got a snub from me, it is probably because I did not see it. I try to see as many movies as possible. But I am just one man on the internet working on a grad student budget. I’m not exactly swimming in the cash.
I also want to state one more time that this is the BEST movies of 2016, not Tanner’s FAVORITE movies of 2016. That would be an amazingly different list. I am judging movies on the quality of the movie, the ambition of the product, and the staying power of a film in the history of cinema. So even though one movie was my favorite, it might not even be on this list at all. So with those said, let’s get this list kicked off with an honorable mention.

FINALLY! For the love of all that is good and holy in this world, I finally saw a good movie this year aside from Deadpool. Considering the fact that I have been on a dead streak that has included two movies that I have given a 0/5 to… This has not been a fun season for me in terms of movies. I am just happy that I don’t have to see some more shit. So with that being said, I might be judging this movie a little more kindly than others, but I do not care. This movie was great! It is so nice to sit in a theater and watch a good ole fashion popcorn movie and Captain America: Civil War is the perfect movie for that fact.

This time last year, I created a list of the video games and movies to keep an eye on in 2015. It was an interesting experiment that kept me looking back to the list, examining my early assessments, and looking at how I felt post fact. It was a fun way to give a precursor to some of the more talked about video games and movies of 2015 and then seeing how the hype was met, the hype was not met, and how certain games and movies broke through 2015 completely under the radar. So let’s give it a go again. This is the ten movies and video games to keep an eye on in 2016.
I will say before we move forward that on both video game and movie lists, I had to cut down from a list of AT LEAST 15 on each side. So even with the extended honorable mentions… There are going to be a few left off. With that being said, let’s get started. Continue reading “Ten Movies and Video Games to Keep an Eye on in 2016”
