Well after looking back at the best and the worst of 2016, it’s time to look ahead at the movies I am most anticipating in 2017. I must note that I’m notoriously bad at this apparently since only 4 of the movies on last year’s list made my top 10 list at the end of the year. 3 of them actually made the top 10 worst list.  Here’s to better luck this year. Most of these are blockbusters due to the fact those are the movies we tend to know about further in advance. Spoiler alert: Fifty Shades of whatever comes next in that awful series is not anywhere on here.

Well, another year is in the books. So before 2017 gets into full swing, lets look back at the best movies of 2016, in my opinion of course. Before we get started, make sure to check out this list’s opposite, the Top 10 Worst Movies of 2016.  Keep in mind, as always with lists like this, my original review and rating is only part of what goes into where each movie places.  The movie’s overall quality, entertainment value, how it holds up after more thought, its impact on me, and its rewatchability are all factors. I also haven’t seen every movie that came out, unfortunately. But you can check out my reviews for each movie I did see on this list by clicking on the title. Before we got to the Top 10, here are some honorable mentions that just missed the list:

It’s been a while since I’ve been able to do a Top 10 list, but I’m doing 3 today as we look back at 2016, and ahead to 2017. I figured I’d start it off with the worst movies of the year, at least that I saw. I don’t particularly enjoy spending money to hate myself for two hours, so I don’t always see ones that I’ve heard are awful. Still managed to see some bad ones though. As always with these lists, keep in mind original ratings don’t matter a whole lot.  Some of these movies I even reviewed somewhat positively. You can find those reviews by clicking on the titles below.

I’m still a week behind on my Top 10 lists so this one is actually because of Deepwater Horizon that came out last week.  Marky Mark has come a long way with his acting and has a wide variety of really good movies that range from straight up action to Oscar winners (and almost as many based on a true story movies as Tom Hanks). Here’s the list and let me know your favorites in the comments:
