I'm a huge fan of going to the movies and seeing a film on the big screen, and these days appreciate watching uninterrupted by text messages, social media and other distractions. In 2016 I was fortunate to see almost 40 movies at the cinema, some multiple times, and after some consideration here are my top picks from the past twelve months.
Fly, made for a fun, light-hearted and feel-good 106 minutes.
If you loved all the action, moral dilemmas and super-heroics as much as I did, then you'll probably enjoy checking out all these movie costumes from Captain America: Civil War too.
Not only did we get to explore another aspect of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but we also got to see some spectacular Jack Kirby-esque visuals in the movie, helping to differentiate the film from comic book stories that had come before.
What do you think of my choices for 2016? Be sure to also check out what my five best films of 2015 and stick around in the days to come for the films on the other side of the spectrum which failed to excite.
Here's hoping 2017 will supply another collection of hilarious, action-packed, spellbinding and inspirational movies for our amusement...
