I am noticing a lot of people not putting Civil War in their top 10 lists. In case any innocent souls wonder by, those people are wrong of course.

Really great year.

01. The Handmaiden
02. Toni Erdmann

This is correct. I shall abstain on posting mine until as late as possible.

On my list of 2016 movies, I've seen 58 this year, which is as many films I have seen the same year they were released.  Frankly, it's enough to make a solid list, but there are a number that I should see to make a complete list.  Those movies are listed below.

My (current) Top Ten of 2016:
1. Arrival
2. The Witch
3. The Handmaiden
4. Kubo and the Two Strings
5. OJ: Made in America
6. Love & Friendship
7. Moana
8. Midnight Special
9. Knight of Cups
10. Hail, Caesar!

Honorable mention goes to Piper, which is in my top 10, but it's only a really short film, so it doesn't get included.



Top 2016 movies I still need to see:
Cemetery of Splendor
Tower
American Honey
Manchester by the Sea
The Cameraperson
Certain Women
Silence
Elle
Tony Eardmann
Fences
Paterson
The Edge of Seventeen

Tony Eardmann

Our tastes converge a fair bit oldkid. Prioritise this!

The trailer looked quite good.  I will make sure to watch it.

Where are all the raving Hell or Highwater reviews? I had no idea it had garnered such a following here.
