briarwood: Henry Cavil Superman (Superman1)
I watch a lot of movies. When I started to compile this list, I started from 65 individual films I saw in 2016. That doesn't include re-watches so I have more than 65 cinema visits, and it's possible that there are a couple of films I missed off my master list. And it was hard to winnow the list down to 20 – my best and worst of the year. So I cheated a little in giving each list a joint 10th, but even then, there are films missing that would normally have made the cut. Neither of this year’s Marvel movies made my top 10, which says something about how much I love those I ranked above them. There are some stinkers that didn't make my bottom ten, but for somewhat different reasons, and there are a number of terrible movies this year that I didn't see. So there are worse films than those on my list - I just didn't see them, and there maybe better films than those I listed that I didn't get to see or maybe caught on DVD release or streaming instead of at the theatre.

These lists are restricted to films I actually sat in a cinema to watch.

But the nice thing about having a season ticket to the movies is I don't generally feel bad about seeing bad films. They are outweighed by the good ones and 2016 has been particularly good.

Happy New Year, everyone!
