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:

the-accountant

This is by far the best movie I’ve seen about an accountant.  Then again, it’s pretty much the only movie I’ve seen about an accountant.  And it’s also not so much about an accountant.  But still, the best one.

The Accountant stars Ben Affleck as a brilliant accountant who suffers from autism.  Some of his work involves some pretty bad people.  When one of these people double crosses him and tries to have him killed, he uses a special set of skills originally meant to help him cope with his autism to find those responsible and exact revenge.
