"If my best friend hides his farts from me then what else is he hiding from me, and why does that make me feel so alone?"
A lot of people don't like this movie, but I absolutely love it. I was laughing and feeling sad at the same time, it is absurd and gross, but also deep and inspiring. The most amazing thing is how they use something stupid as farts and made it so divine. It's a beautiful movie with great performances from Radcliffe and Dano. It's also one of the most original movies of the year, and I hold it very close to my heart.
Lion is the most heartwrenching movie from 2016 for me. There are some great dramas from 2016, probably even better than the Lion, but this was the saddest for me, and that's kinda the most important thing when I watch some drama. And it's not only drama there are some funny and uplifting scenes too. Also the acting was great.
"Grasp the sword in your heart!"
Another movie that get to me emotionally, there's a lot of reasons for you to cry in this beautiful anime. But also there are some fun and well done fight scenes, fantastic beasts and great characters. It's kinda anime version of The Karate Kid, but also much more than that.
"Language is the first weapon drawn in a conflict."
I love smart Sci-Fi movies, and I was having high hopes for this movie. It didn't really met my high expectations, but I still love it very much. And on my second viewing, when I knew what it is, and what it isn't I even liked it more. I think it's a well made movie from one of my favorite directors, and Amy Adams was great too.
"You're probably thinking, "My boyfriend said this was a superhero movie but that guy in the suit just turned that other guy into a fucking kabab!" Well, I may be super, but I'm no hero. And yeah, technically, this is a murder. But some of the best love stories start with a murder. And that's exactly what this is, a love story."
I love Deadpool comics and the movie was everything I expected it to be. Ryan Reynolds nailed the character, he is perfect for this role, and I usually don't even like Ryan Reynolds. There are some things that they changed which I didn't like, but it's still on of the best adaptations of comics ever, in my opinion.
"I am a dirty old man who likes erotica."
This is a beautiful movie, really top notch cinematography, full of details, and girls are beautiful too.
It has crazy story, some cool twists, and very hot lesbian action, what more do you want? Well it's not great as Old Boy, but it's still a damn good movie and I love it.
"We have everything in here. It's the black box of our lives. How many couples would split up if they looked at each other's phones?"
Well I didn't like music in this movie, and it's nothing special visually. But I really liked the script, the concept is great, and I thought a lot about relationships after watching the movie. It can go a bit over the top in some scenes, but I didn't mind it much, cause it was very fun movie to watch.
"If you start singing, I'm gonna throw up."
I was so happy watching Moana, I felt like I was kid again. It's kinda typical Disney movie, except it doesn't have love story, but it's awesome and it is my favorite Disney movie in a long time. Songs are catchy, animation is gorgeous, Auli'i Cravalho is a really talented girl and The Rock surprised me how good he was.
"City of stars, just one thing everybody wants
There in the bars, and through the smokescreen of the crowded restaurants
It's love, yes, all we're looking for is love from someone else"
Maybe it doesn't deserves all the praises it got, especially praises for the best musical ever, because it have very little dancing and not that much singing, but it's still a good musical and a movie that I love. It's a gorgeous movie, with vibrant colors, and it have that magical feeling. It's also about movies and old Hollywood, a thematic that I like. Emma Stone was fantastic too.
"The damn thing could have exploded to a fireball."
Charming and poetic movie, which is at the same time very ordinary and very strange, kinda like a main character Paterson, or maybe like director Jim Jarmusch. Probably not for everyone, they'll say that nothing happens and that is to slow, but I enjoyed it a lot. Adam Driver have some great movies under his belt.
"When you don't know someone, they're more interesting. They can be anything you want them to be. But when you know them, there's limits to them."
It's a cute movie with cute characters, and I'm surprised how much I like it, I didn't have any expectations for this one. I love movies about rock music, and there aren't a lot of them that are any good, so it's nice to see good rock movie for a change. Sing Street is just a positive and lovely movie to make you feel good, and sometimes that's all that you need.
Tough movie to watch, it has some shocking scenes, and can leave you a bit depressed. I wouldn't recommend this movie to any woman.
It also has some great acting, especially when you see some characters on the stage and then in "real life".
"Wouldst thou like to live deliciously?"
Motherfucking Black Phillip.
2016 was a good year for horror movies, and this is my favorite by far. Atmosphere in this movie is amazing, it's just the way it should be for a horror movie. Everything looks great, and very well made, I just didn't like the ending very much. It's a good family drama too.
- There's a special number if you've been diagnosed as dyslexic.
- Right, can you give us that 'coz with computers, I'm dyslexic.
- You'll find it online sir.
Very good drama about ordinary man fighting the relentless system.
There are couple of scenes that are very powerful, and almost made me cry.
"I pray but I am lost. Am I just praying to silence?"
The one thing that really bothered me is that Garfield, Driver and Neeson played Portuguese people, and they don't even speak portuguese. Other than that I couldn't find any flaws in this movie. Martin Scorsese is a movie genius. This movie should won Oscar for cinematography, the level of detail is remarkable.
"If you must blink, do it now."
Animated movie with a lots of heart. Dialog is a bit lackluster, but characters are really charming. But, for me, highlight of the movie is stop motion animation which is truly amazing in this movie. There were never so big monsters in any other stop motion feature, and it's one of the most beautiful movies of 2016, animated or not.
"I can't beat it. I can't beat it. I'm sorry."
Another movie that is hard to watch, and one that will probably make you cry. There are big chances for that. Casey Affleck is astonishing in this movie, and he is my favorite for taking Oscar home, though Denzel Washington is close.
That kid annoyed the hell out of me.
"I don't know how I'm going to live with myself if I don't stay true to what I believe."
Fun war movie, maybe war movies shouldn't be this much fun, but never mind that. There are some action scenes that are over the top, and they don't fit in this movie, but there are also scenes that are some of the best scenes in any war movie ever.
Movie looks great, it have great pacing and very good acting.
