Favourite films of 2016

I don’t get to see every movie. I don’t even get to see MOST movies. There’s probably 10,000 movies that come out every year that I don’t get to see. Now, of those at least 9,500 are probably awful, but that still leaves 500 movies that could have been anywhere from pretty good to amazing. So this is not scientific and no one’s list is. Still, I try to see as many as I can, and these were my favourites of the year.
