Silence (2016)
Deeply complex, stirring, and meaningful, this thought-provoking drama tackles tough issues regarding apostasy and persecution head on, with Martin Scorsese's masterful and surprisingly beautiful directing demanding the viewer's upmost attention, as it simultaneously respects their intelligence.

Hacksaw Ridge (2016)
Powerful, masterfully directed, beautifully acted real life war film, is an astonishing piece of filmmaking, about faith, conviction and courage, and is the best war film since "Saving Private Ryan."

The Nice Guys (2016)
Highly original, incredibly funny, and a smart, twisty script, this is an updated version of the old school opposites attract duo crime action films, which works due to the smooth, incredible direction, amazing attention to detail production design and the phenomenal chemistry between Crowe and Gosling.

Well acted, a smart witty script, subversive, and really funny, this coming of age tragicomedy manages to twist expectations, while still having traces of convention, and the final result is one entertaining film that captures the awkwardness and uncertainty of growing up.

A highly cerebral film that greatly respects the intelligence of the audience, this is another home run for Denis Villeneuve, that not only demands your attention and a mandatory second viewing, it offers deep ideas in an incredibly original manner, while also showcasing fantastic performances, in particular Amy Adams.

Subtle, beautifully shot, dramatic, patient, haunting atmosphere and bone chilling to its core, this film is an unconventional horror film, and all the better for it, and the result is one of the scariest films of the decade.

Anarchistic, gleefully profane, and lots of fun, this is a comic book movie for adults only, and revels in that prospect, with Ryan Reynolds giving the performance of his career as the titular character.

Incredible visual effects, a nicely paced plot, and some mixing up of the Marvel formula go a long way in making this a fun and immersive experience, even if the film slightly suffers (again) from a poor one dimensional (to excuse the pun) villain, and some shaky unclear universe rules.

It's not quite as scary as the first film, but this is a remarkable horror film, with likable and memorable characters, a creepy atmosphere, and moments of poignancy, which cements director James Wan's status as the most reliable horror director working right now.
