    Movies from 2016 worth watching - A retrospective

    an overview (incl. short comments) of movies from 2016 imo worth watching (may include earlier movies, whose scene bdrips/dvdrips got released in 2016) - afaik this is 'as good as it gets' this year


    action:

    Hardcore Henry (2015) worth watching only for the good fps idea, the negative: large dosage of shaky cam, amateurish execution


    adventure:

    The Revenant (2015) rather average outcome, nice cinematography/scenery, decent acting, boring story, unbelievable events, overlong


    animated:

    Storks (2016) decent, positive vibe, high cuteness level


    comedy:

    Independence Day: Resurgence (2016) so bad its good, with many silly scenes, thus ends up placed here in the comedy category
    The Brothers Grimsby (2016) watchable only for a few gross/hilarious scenes (like: what happened to harry potter, sharon stallone 3 or 'up the elephant's'), other than that its complete garbage
    Zoolander 2 (2016) watchable only for a few hilarious scenes (like: bieber intro/selfie scene, zoolander's school collapse, awfully scarred face scene), other than that its complete garbage


    drama:

    Creed (2015) problematic but still quite watchable, mostly due to stallone keeping it from falling apart (guess he can make rocky movies in his sleep)


    fantasy:

    Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016) visually attractive, many nonsensical elements, twisted and wrong character motivations, should be called 'The Dark Knight vs. Superman'
    Captain America: Civil War (2016) visually attractive, many nonsensical elements, twisted and wrong character motivations
    Gods of Egypt (2016) surprisingly enjoyable ride with characters from egyptian mythology, the negatives: uneven cgi, thin story, amateurish acting
    Warcraft (2016) surprisingly enjoyable fantasy world, the negatives: confusing script, amateurish acting, borrows from other similar movies, verdict: best movie based on a video game so far


    fighting:
    -


    horror:
    -


    other: (documentaries)

    Where to Invade Next (2015) a very good, relaxed and humorous michael moore docu pointing out how countries ought to learn from each other and implement sensible solutions to their common problems
    Hillary's America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party (2016) explores major connections of the usa democratic party with things like: slavery, exploitation of the native americans, racial and sexual segregation, eugenics, social engineering, big government, etc. - the negative: doesn't do the same regarding the republican party


    romance:
    -


    SF:

    The Martian (2015) rather average outcome, decent cgi and acting, overlong, unconvincing story, similar problems like 'gravity' or 'interstellar'


    thriller:

    Spectre (2015) solid, though somewhat uneven return to form
    Jason Bourne (2016) solid, though predictable sequel


    western:

    Garden of Evil (1954) solid western, witty dialogue, good chemistry, though low on action, more into exploring human motivation/desires

    Parable of the Two Birds

    Two birds, beautiful of wings, close companions, cling to one common tree: of the two one eats the sweet fruit of that tree; the other eats not but watches his companion. The self is the bird that sits immersed on the common tree; but because he is not lord he is bewildered and has sorrow. But when he sees that other who is the Lord and the beloved, he knows that all is His greatness and his sorrow passes away from him...

    I'd recommend Zootopia under animated. Very good movie! And Magnificent Seven is also very good!

    Rogue One was also good, and you can "get" it even if you haven't seen any Star Wars movies before.

    Zootopia - didn't like the propaganda
    Magnificent Seven - unconvincing to say the least
    Rogue One - wasn't released as bdrip/dvdrip yet

    Bone Tomahawk - cheap indie western/horror with a few laughs
    Moana - wasn't released as bdrip/dvdrip yet

    The Secret Life of Pets - got boring early on, not sure why exactly though
    The Witch (2015) - had potential, ran out of ideas

    I liked Bone Tomahawk as well, the turn of event in the middle of the movie surprised me.
    For animation I recommend "The Secret Life of Pets" as well.
    And horror/thriller "The Witch 2015".
    Fighting: Yip Man 3 was ok, Kickboxer Vengeance was below average.

    I find Revenant utterly boring, and like @Slik said, unbelievable events! Waste of my time.

    It's on my list to watch. It seems to be an adult themed animation.
