Ok, so the first half of any year is really never better than the second half when it comes to movies. Still, these are the best (and worst) at the half way point (of the ones I have seen)…
Even if the funniest part of the film was in the original trailer, it is still a great family film.
4. The Jungle Book
Entertaining, thrilling, and very realistic, it stands alone from the great animated film as it’s own great film.
3. Hail, Caesar!
The Coens do it again, with another stellar cast that tells a story of fiction that seems like it really did happen. Sounds easy, but it isn’t. Then again, it is the Coens. A great movie about making movies.
2. Captain America: Civil War
I had no idea I would like it as much as I did. It is one of the most fun I have had at a superhero film in some time.
1. The Witch
It is rare for me to like a current horror film, so it is near unimaginable that I would call a horror film the best film of the year so far. Then again, that is what The Witch is: Rare, and unimaginable. And Scary.
Another biographical sports flick, it is not the movie that should have been made about Jesse Owens. It barely gets close to the bronze.
2. Me before you
I was so wanting to like this movie. It looked like it had potential. Then I saw it…(sigh)…
1. Independence Day: Resurgence
It took me a few days after I saw it to come up with a new name for it: ReTURDgence. Trademarked.
The second half of 2016 is upon us…movie wise…
