    I do still care, hence why I added if it's something he cares about. Mellowed out? Sure I'd rather lists adhere to the dates they became available to the general public but it's not a rule anybody has to follow. I never enforced it or excluded any movies from anybody's list because of it.

    Also don't worry I always check the dates for everybody's lists just in case. ;)

    Ah, I envy the thrill of the initial watch. I have a feeling it won't make many people's lists, but it'll probably be in my top five. Enjoy.

    docs certainly count, and while we're on the topic you should check out adam curtis' hypernormalisation.

    most lovecraft body horror gore, he should like it. My wife doesn’t. I’ve made her sit through it five times or so.

    I had this list already made up because I wrote it up back then for an article I wrote. Some of the movies might not hold up as well for me now as they did originally but this is that list.

    01. The Accountant
    02. Captain America: Civil War
    03. Zootopia
    04. Central Intelligence
    05. Jason Bourne
    06. Jane Got A Gun
    07. The Legend Of Tarzan
    08. Star Trek Beyond
    09. Hell Or High Water
    10. London Has Fallen

    There were many others I saw that I liked but didn't make the original list. And some of those are now ones that I watch a lot on On Demand or on TV.

    Only thing I've seen from this year is Rogue One, which if not a great movie was certainly my favorite Star Wars since the original three. Surprisingly likable characters, and a sense of purpose. The ending was beautiful, but also kinda disappointing because Disney chose only the last couple minutes to introduce sexual tension rather than give it time to develop into something meaningful.

    Just realised that Childhood of a Leader was actually released in 2016, but the sites mark it as 2015 because it played at the Venice film fest that year. All its other dates are 2016.

    Fuck yes. A true connoisseur of the retarded. The main theme gets stuck in my head for days on end anytime I hear it.

    Turned a guy onto The Wailing today, a proud moment.

    if you’re looking for more foreign movies from this year i’d say the other ‘major’ ones are toni erdmann and elle. i have other favourites which i’ll post in my list soon but those were the ultra hyped ones.
