Well after looking back at the best and the worst of 2016, it’s time to look ahead at the movies I am most anticipating in 2017. I must note that I’m notoriously bad at this apparently since only 4 of the movies on last year’s list made my top 10 list at the end of the year. 3 of them actually made the top 10 worst list. Here’s to better luck this year. Most of these are blockbusters due to the fact those are the movies we tend to know about further in advance. Spoiler alert: Fifty Shades of whatever comes next in that awful series is not anywhere on here.
Well, another year is in the books. So before 2017 gets into full swing, lets look back at the best movies of 2016, in my opinion of course. Before we get started, make sure to check out this list’s opposite, the Top 10 Worst Movies of 2016. Keep in mind, as always with lists like this, my original review and rating is only part of what goes into where each movie places. The movie’s overall quality, entertainment value, how it holds up after more thought, its impact on me, and its rewatchability are all factors. I also haven’t seen every movie that came out, unfortunately. But you can check out my reviews for each movie I did see on this list by clicking on the title. Before we got to the Top 10, here are some honorable mentions that just missed the list:
It’s been a while since I’ve been able to do a Top 10 list, but I’m doing 3 today as we look back at 2016, and ahead to 2017. I figured I’d start it off with the worst movies of the year, at least that I saw. I don’t particularly enjoy spending money to hate myself for two hours, so I don’t always see ones that I’ve heard are awful. Still managed to see some bad ones though. As always with these lists, keep in mind original ratings don’t matter a whole lot. Some of these movies I even reviewed somewhat positively. You can find those reviews by clicking on the titles below.
I’m still a week behind on my Top 10 lists so this one is actually because of Deepwater Horizon that came out last week. Marky Mark has come a long way with his acting and has a wide variety of really good movies that range from straight up action to Oscar winners (and almost as many based on a true story movies as Tom Hanks). Here’s the list and let me know your favorites in the comments: Continue reading “Top 10 Mark Wahlberg Movies”
My plan was to release this last week to coincide with the release of The Magnificent Seven, but unfortunately I didn’t have time. This week I have some time, so here are my favorite Denzel Washington movies, with a list of Honorable Mentions nearly as long as the actual list.
With the unexpected Blair Witch sequel coming out this weekend, I decided to look at the best movies in the found footage genre. Not really a surprise, but there aren’t many good ones. Here’s the list and as always, let me know your favorites in the comments.
It looks like Tommy Lee Jones is all set to phone in another performance in the useless Mechanic sequel. So I guess there’s not better time to look back at his career, one full of some extremely average movies. Yeah, I had to stretch a bit this week for my topic. Anyway, let’s get to the list.
Well for some reason they remade Ben-Hur, so I guess it is time to look at the best so called “sword and sandals” movies. This is not my favorite genre, as evidenced by the fact that I couldn’t even make a list of 10. Check out the list below and let me know your favorites in the comments.

With Pete’s Dragon coming out, I decided to look at the best non-animated Disney movies. Because I haven’t seen a bunch of these since I was a kid, it’s hard to tell whether they actually belong in their spots or not. But hey, it’s my list so that’s alright. I’ve decided not to include any Marvel or Star Wars movies in this list even though they technically qualify as Disney live action.
Top 10 lists are back in a big way with the greatest movie villains of all time. This is obviously due to the release of Suicide Squad this weekend, a team-up of supervillains. The way it is being reviewed, the movie may have needed one or two of these guys to help out. Continue reading “Top 10 Movie Villains”
