With the year coming to a close, we must look back at the year’s best in film. Now this list is just of my favorite films of 2016 and everyone has their own opinion, so please share it with me at I also didn’t get a chance to see all the movies in 2016 like Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, Secret Life of Pets, and The Legend of Tarzan, just to name a few.

10) Pete’s Dragon: A lot of heart and sense of wonder that enhances the film, but the climax of the film is very cliche and has been seen many times.

9) Sully: Good acting and shows the true story exactly, but the film takes a while to get to the water land of the plane.

8) Star Trek Beyond: Great characters and amazing action, but the climax is anticlimactic and drags on a little bit.

7) The Magnificent Seven: Has good acting and a thrilling climax, but the story has been done multiple times and some of the characters are undeveloped and dull.

6)The Accountant: Great acting from Ben Affleck and smooth, nice looking action scenes, but the characters are either undeveloped or don’t have a clear motivation for their actions.

5) Finding Dory: Great story and good emotional moments, but the character of Marlin does or says things that seem out of character for him.

4) Deadpool: Great characters, humor, and action that has flare and style that makes it special, but the story jumps around from past to present in Deadpool’s life that it gets a little confusing sometime.

3) Fantastic Beasts and where to find them: Great characters,amazing effects, and adds something new to the Harry Potter universe,but the story change focus halfway through the film.

2) Doctor Strange: Interesting characters and great action scenes, but copies a lot of its story and characters from Iron Man (2008).

1) Hell or High Water: Relatable characters, tense action, and great emotional moments that makes my number one. The characters are relatable and has realistic motivations for what they do.
