Movies Came Out In (2016)
Moonlight – Wow, did I hate this movie. I found nothing redeeming about it. Complete waste of time. Can’t believe it won. I was waiting for something even remotely interesting to happen in it, that never came.
Arrival – Loved this movie. Watched it again, after watching it once (just for perspective, since I now knew the twist). I could watch it again. Great premise, great acting, very emotional.
Fences – I hated it. Felt like a play, with absolutely no pay-off. I was hoping it was going to be good, I was disappointed.
Hacksaw Ridge – I liked it. It wasn’t great, but watchable.
Hell or High Water – Pleasantly surprised. Knew nothing about it when I started watching it, and I really enjoyed the story. I was a bit surprised by the open carrying scene at one of the robberies, and it did make me laugh.
Hidden Figures – Loved this movie. Really loved that my daughter loved it.
La La Land – Heard so much about this and was expecting more. I’m not super huge into musicals, but I went in with an open mind. It was okay. My wife (into musicals) hated it, couldn’t even make it through the whole flick. I guess it was just “okay” in my opinion. I really enjoyed the fact that Gosling really learned to play piano for the role, mad props for that.
Lion – Really really enjoyed this movie. Considering it was based on a true story, it was pretty emotional. I was pleasantly surprised with this flick, I highly recommend watching it.
Manchester by the Sea – Wow, did I hate this movie. It was slow, depressing, and boring. Again, I had heard so much about how great it was, after watching, I did not share that opinion.
