My Top 5 Movies Of 2016

2016 has been a great year for movies and the cinema powerhouses really came up trump with some fantastic cinematic pieces. Marvel yet again added more depth to is Cinematic Universe and Disney proved that they are the undoubtedly the best at creating instant family classics. Without further ado here are my top 5 movies of 2016: 

5. Arrival

Amy Adams and Jeremy Renner star in this mysterious sci-fi thriller and it truly is a must see film for any science fiction fan. Not only does this go beyond the realms of reality, the acting performance from Amy Adams is first class. Arrival shows that despite the mystery that surrounds the unknown, the future can be just as hopeful and bright as it might be scary.

4. Deadpool

Deadpool provides a breath of fresh air from the generic hero vs villain comic book formula, yes the standard elements are present however the numerous ‘dick’ jokes and consistent innuendos make this somewhat stand out. This is some of Ryan Reynolds’ best work and I look forward to him reprising this role in upcoming films. 

3. Zootropolis 

Arguably one of the best Disney films of all time follows the tale of the first ever rabbit police officer Judy Hopps, as she attempts to solve a mysterious case in the bustling city of Zootropolis. Not only does this deliver the classic Disney charm and joy of past movies, it also gets across the message that no matter who you are, you can be whatever you want to be if you set your mind to it.

2. Rogue One

Any addition to the Star Wars universe is a welcome addition in my eyes and Rogue One did not fail to disappoint. With strong themes of rebellion and hope, this is a film which really does tug at the heartstrings of any Star Wars fan. Be sure to check out my full review of Rogue One coming soon!

1. Captain America Civil War

Ahh here it is ladies and gentlemen. My favourite film of 2016. As you know I am a huge Marvel fan so any collaboration of as many characters as possible was always going to have me mouthwatering. And unsurprisingly, they managed to quench my thirst. Captain America Civil War is undoubtedly the crème de la crème of Superhero movies and I cannot wait to see what Marvel can come up with next.

So there you have it, my top 5 movies of 2016 and whilst there seems to be a Sci-Fi / Action based theme to my choices, I must say picking my favourites of the year was a tough ask. Other notable mentions which narrowly missed the cut include Finding Dory, Doctor Strange, Moana and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.

    Hello, love the list, although I’ve only seen 3/5. I would have definitely bumped Civil War for Dr Strange, that could be due to my love of Benedict though. Loved Deadpool and anyone who didn’t has serious issues. I cannot wait for Wonder Woman and Guardians 2 and I look forward to more of your top movie lists. Thank for the follow x
