I don’t usually do this, but too many folks have asked. So, I’ve gone back through my last year of films and tv (and it was a LOT). Here’s what I came up with out of about 280 posts which covered more than 300 films and TV shows over the last calendar year.
Not all of these are brilliant, but they are all good movies and often unique enough to make them worth the time. Most were released in 2016, but a few may have bridged across from 2015 (or earlier)… and a few have released that I’ve yet to see, but there is only so much time!
The best (in no particular order, but should be seen):
The rest (again, no order, but unique or well done and deserve a watch):
Hologram for the King
Finding Vivian Maier
Eddie the Eagle
Fundamentals of Caring
Miss You Already
April and the Extraordinary World
Hunt for the Wilderpeople
Therapy for a Vampire
Swiss Army Man
The Nice Guys
There is a heck of a lot of good TV out there now, but these were the new ones that caught me off-guard.
