Yup! Surprise! I think I’ve posted a total of four blog posts this year, and all of them have been so whiny (personally judging my past self’s emotional turmoil). But, it has been a busy year. There were a lot of first and lasts. But I knew, if anything, I had to continue with some of the wrap-ups of the year. If not for readers (if there are any still out there) then for myself.
One that I’ve been particularly consistent in is my list and ranking of the movies I’ve watched in and outside cinemas. So, here are the ones I’ve caught this year (starting from the last place I stopped last year, so technically Dec 2015 onwards) in the order I’ve watched them:
Surprisingly, I’ve watched around the same amount of movies this year as last year. As usual, I usually choose the ones to watch in cinemas either according to their Rotten Tomato ratings, personal preference and, sometimes, I’m roped in to watch a few.
And here are my ratings for them:
- Train to Busan
- Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them
- 10 Cloverfield Lane
- Finding Dory
- Kung Fu Panda 3
- X-Men: Apocalypse
- Star Wars: The Force Awakens
- Doctor Strange
- Captain America: Civil War
- Star Trek Beyond
- Me Before You
- Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice
To be honest, all the ones around no. 4 to 13 have about the same ranking to me. And honestly, none of them are that terrible – except for no. 15 and no. 16 (both of which I personally hate with a passion due to very different reasons – and which I know have very polarising audience opinions). Be reminded that the way I rank movies is entirely subjective. Some things I factor in include: the experience, whether I’d watch it again, whether it moves away from cliches.
I also didn’t expect that the no. 1 movie I would love so much would be a Korean zombie movie. But hey, the best movies don’t follow the most obvious tropes!
Stay tuned for my ranking of movies outside the cinema next week! (Hopefully next week!) As well as some other yearly round-ups.
Till next time!
Edited: Added Deadpool because I completely missed out on it.
