    RYM film chart

    Deadline is AUGUST 22nd. If you need an extension just say so and it will absolutely be considered. This is usually just a soft deadline to make sure everybody doesn't become complacent.

    REMEMBER for those of you who haven't seen many films from this year or in general, you can always submit lists as small as only having 5 submissions.

    Rules:

    - Please submit at least 5 films.
    - First place in your rankings gets 10 points, 2nd gets 9, etcetc, 10th gets 1.
    - Feel free to post more than 10, but only the top 10 will get points.
    - Feel free to post less than 10, the same scoring will apply.
    - Feel free not to rank your picks, in which case all ten picks will get 5.5 points.
    - If you're so much of a dick that you have to post more than 10 unranked picks, the maths will be worked out.

    Well I'd only seen 10 movies from 2016 and I certainly wasn't going to rate it higher!

    The Wailing was this year. If you’re a fan of Asian films or horror, don’t miss this one.

    Initial list, I'll cut it down later. I know that for some of these it's not even in question, but rather than weed out the borderline cases I figured I'd throw them all at the wall for now.

    Arrival
    The Wailing
    The Void
    Nocturnal Animals
    Train to Busan
    Under the Shadow
    Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (arguably the best of the new movies)
    Personal Shopper
    Deadpool
    Don't Breathe
    Midnight Special (now realizing that Nichols wrote and directed two films released the same year? wtf)
    The Autopsy of Jane Doe (loses steam in the final act, but up until then it's the perfect balance of mystery and terror)
    Hail Caesar!
    Split
    I Am Not Your Negro
    Hell or High Water
    10 Cloverfield Lane

    Will try to watch a couple as it looks like I've seen 9 worth listing. Also saw The Red Pill out of sheer curiosity, but lol. I caught The Wailing after seeing it mentioned on this forum, might be the best of the bunch.

    It won’t make the list, I was just really taken with the exposition.

    As far as 2016 horror goes, it’s no Wailing, Void, or Under the Shadow.

    I still need to see The Void, definitely doing so for this one. Heard many many good things.

    Maybe I should watch a few movies from this year just so I can make a list and put The Wailing at #1.

    1. The Handmaiden (Park Chan-Wook)
    2. The Salesman (Asghar Farhadi)
    3. Hounds of Love (Ben Young)
    4. The Wailing (Na Hong-Jin)
    5. Elle (Paul Verhoeven)
    6. American Honey (Andrea Arnold)
    7. Under the Shadow (Babak Anvari)
    8. Life and a Day (Sayeed Roustayi)
    9. Toni Erdmann (Maren Ade)
    10. Zootopia (Rich Moore)

    11. Manchester by the Sea (Kenneth Lonergan)
    12. I, Daniel Blake (Ken Loach)
    13. Hail Caesar (Coen bros)
    14. Sing Street (John Carney)
    15. Train to Busan (Yeon Sang-ho)
    16. The Nice Guys (Shane Black)
    17. The Neon Demon (Nicholas Winding Refn)
    18. Arrival (Denis Villeneuve)
    19. Moonlight (Barry Jenkins)
    20. Deadpool (Tim Miller)


    Best year ever for Korean and Iranian cinema? (Ana Lily Amirpour's Bad Batch was also this year which was also cool, but flawed).

    I highly recommend Hounds of Love which is based on the true story of the husband/wife serial killers the Burnies and was criminally under-watched.

    According to IMDB Hounds of Love only has 2 festival dates in 2016 and the rest of the dates are 2017, just in case you care about that kind of thing.

    Damn, I actually saw it at a film festival but it definitely wasn't Venice! I'll edit my list at some point.

    Weren't you the one that cared about that kind of thing when you said this in your thread for the 2015 poll:
    Maybe you've mellowed out a bit? :D My lists will continue to be IMDb years throughout so I don't get a search headache.
