2016 - Cuckoo's Year in Review
This year, I ended with a list of 38 films and, unlike previous years, I had no problem narrowing it down to a Top 10. It was a good year for the craft but I found I only found 3 movies worthy of a full five stars, while there were 35 four stars all worth recommendations.
You know the rest...
Here's my Top 10 Favorite Films of 2016:

It took me weeks to shake this one out of my brain.
We can't let this list go without mentioning the obligatory Cream of the Crap.
Luckily I managed to avoid Nine Lives or Inferno but the following five managed to find their way onto my screen and into the bottom of my toilet:
Alice Through the Looking Glass
Divergent Series: Allegiant, The
And that's that.
I'd love to hear your comments.
