    4) The Nice Guy's
    5) Swiss Army Man

    Not really in any particular order. However, I can say that I enjoyed Kubo the most out of all the films I saw this year. It just hits the right notes.

    Honorable Mentions

    Green Room
    Manchester by the Sea
    Moonlight
    Arrival
    Hidden Figures (almost went for the bad joke)

    My favorite straight up comedy of the year was Bad Moms.

    Best Comic Film?

    Deadpool

    Top 5 Worst Movies of the Year?

    Gods of Egypt
    Poop Squad
    Batman Vs Superman
    Ghostbusters
    Jackie
    I have to be honest, didn't think La La Land would be among your top films.

    Haven't seen it yet, personally.

    'Nocturnal Animals'

    Jake Gyllenhaal is dumped by Amy Adams in favour of an alpha male and writes a novel in which he processes his own emasculation through a conventional revenge thriller plot. The film cuts back and forth between present day real life, in which Adams is reading the novel, and dramatization scenes of the novel itself. This film is incredibly intense and uncomfortable and full of disturbing imagery. It only briefly takes a breath for air with carefully calculated comedic relief, mostly in the form of Michael Shannon's show-stealing redneck sheriff character. There are also some darker jabs at poncey artsy people. But this film is dark and ugly. It is very well-crafted, but hard to take. I don't think I could sit through it again, much like 'Irreversible'.

    I didn't care that much for Nocturnal Animals. Half of it was good. The other half was dime store novel.

    Every Tue my local theater plays older movies. Last night... The Crow. Love this movie. One of the best soundtracks, still to this day. Brandon Lee shows he easily could have gotten out of B kung fu flicks. Michael Wincott has one of the coolest voices, shame he didn't get bigger.

    What the fuck happened with Alex Proyas? Dude made this then Dark City, two of my favorite flicks from the 90's. Then it's just downhill. Garage Days was fine, but then... "the fuck?"

    I saw Split, The Founder and Lion.

    I really, really like Lion. The tears come early and pretty much run through the course of the film.

    The Founder is Keaton doing Keaton while Keatoning around as Keaton.

    Split...well, it isn't good. But, I am interested in its follow up.

    Casablanca at the Brattle Theater in Harvard Square last night.

    This was on 35mm film. Not a clean print but still enjoyable to see it on a big screen with an audience.

    You mean the other patrons behaved themselves? I find this hard to believe, lol. From people playing with their phones, talking, munching really loud, kicking your seat, NOT showering, farting - the theater experience is not like it used to be.

    It sounded like a film I wouldn't like when I read about it, but I saw the trailer in front of another movie and it really intrigued me. So I'll probably rent it.

    Ha, it was not that type of movie theater experience.

    Lion is a really good film. Saw it a couple weeks ago and enjoyed it immensely.

    How was Logan then...

    What the fuck theater do you attend? My worst movie experience ever, which ended in a physical altercation, seems tame to what you go through.

    I thought it was pretty great. It finally has the rating to showcase a proper Wolverine fight. It's like a 17 year old case of blue balls finally being released for the world to see.

    Well that sounds great,

    but I doubt it matches the Great Wall. Matt Damon shifts through 5 variants of accents, ranging to full on Irish to average Matt Damon. I'm glad we finally got to see Zhang Yimou and Matt Damon team up to make a monster flick.

    *Yes I saw it because I'm Asian, also because I was genuinely fascinated how this movie ever ended up happening.

    I saw 'Toni Erdmann' and although I generally enjoyed it, it was very sloppy, unfocussed and way too long. The plot revolves around a goofball joker who tries to brighten up his adult daughter's life by showing up in her life as his alter ego, "Toni Edrmann". He puts on a silly wig and a few other costumes and shows up at events in her professional and personal life trying to prank her. At first we think the father and daughter are total opposites, that she is an uptight businesswoman who is just embarrassed by his antics. As the film goes on, we see her playing along and that she is more like her father than she initially comes across.

    Many scenes are absolutely hilarious. However, many scenes feel pointless. The part where they all do coke and go to the night club felt like it was going to pay off in a much bigger way, but really went nowhere. Sometimes the scenes going on for a long time help mine the material for awkward laughs, other times it just becomes tedious. They could easily chop 30 minutes from this film and it would be better for it.
