Silence (2017)
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.

9.9/10

Sing Street (2016)
Passionate, brilliantly crafted, hopeful part wish-fulfilment, part love letter, this film is a perfect illustration of the clash between dreams and reality, backed up with incredible performances, a very smart script, and fantastic music to boot.

La La Land (2016)
Both nostalgic and contemporary, this is a dazzling, energetic, and beautifully filmed old-style musical, that proves Damien Chazelle is not a one trick pony.

9.8/10
garfield2710's rating:
People who added this item 151 Average listal rating (92 ratings) 7.3 IMDB Rating 7.3
Haunting, powerful, and topical, this brilliantly written, morally ambiguous drama, not only provides the audience with a lot of food for thought, but is grippingly intense from start to finish.

9.8/10
garfield2710's rating:
People who added this item 267 Average listal rating (175 ratings) 7 IMDB Rating 7.3
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.

Arrival (2016)
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.

9.8/10

Patriots Day (2017)
Peter Berg and Mark Wahlberg's third collaboration is their best, with a respectful handling of its subject matter, gripping and intense directing, and excellent work from the ensemble cast.

Zootopia (2016)
Clever, smart, and very much adult-orientated, this is an animated film that respects the audience's intelligence, with a cerebral, film noir style story, and a clever, morally grey viewpoint of prejudice.

9.7/10

People who added this item 431 Average listal rating (298 ratings) 7.3 IMDB Rating 7.8
It may not break that much new ground for Civil Rights films, but Theodore Melfi successfully balances the drama and comedy, resulting in a film that is both very entertaining, and poignant.

People who added this item 127 Average listal rating (79 ratings) 6.1 IMDB Rating 6.4
With excellent performances all around, a very smart and witty script backing it up, and excellent attention to detail in the period design, this is one the best of the Jane Austen adaptations ever put to screen.

People who added this item 552 Average listal rating (416 ratings) 7.2 IMDB Rating 6.9
The Witch (2016)
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.

9.5/10

People who added this item 1517 Average listal rating (1094 ratings) 7.2 IMDB Rating 8
Deadpool (2016)
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.

9.4/10
garfield2710's rating:
People who added this item 1020 Average listal rating (718 ratings) 6.7 IMDB Rating 7.5
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.

9.4/10
garfield2710's rating:
People who added this item 412 Average listal rating (297 ratings) 7.4 IMDB Rating 7.6
This is not exactly the most subtle of narratives, but this film more than makes up for it with the excellent dialogue, great characters, tight direction, and a haunting ending.

Green Room (2016)
Well shot, great acting, raw and visceral, this is a very intense thriller, and an excellent homage to grind house horror films.

Lion (2016)
Simultaneously heart-wrenching and uplifting, this film's careful handling of a tough subject matter is to be rewarded, with only needing a touch of trimming being the sole reservation.

9.3/10
garfield2710's rating:
People who added this item 1194 Average listal rating (875 ratings) 7.1 IMDB Rating 7.8
Appropriately dark, morally ambiguous, gripping, and perfectly written, this is a very mature addition to the MCU, which sadly suffers from some shaky action sequences, and yet another poor villain.

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.

Finding Dory (2016)
It doesn't reach the emotional resonance of the first film, but this is an exquisite followup, with a good story, clever writing, and some funny moments, which shows Pixar may be improving after their slump.

9.1/10
garfield2710's rating:
People who added this item 453 Average listal rating (315 ratings) 6.4 IMDB Rating 7.1
Moving this franchise into yet another smart direction, this is a lightweight, funny and thematically satisfying family film, though moments of predictability do hold it back a touch.

People who added this item 249 Average listal rating (174 ratings) 6.7 IMDB Rating 7.1
Intense, well directed recreation of surviving through the BP oil spill, which acts as both an excellent tribute to those who survived and died, and as a gripping piece of cinema.

Moana (2016)
It may start out just a little too slow, but once it gets rolling, this is a fun, energetic, and beautifully animated adventure, that will delight both kids and adults.

The Founder (2016)
Taking a look at a fascinating subject matter, and delivering it in a guiltily enjoyable manner, this film shines through both because of its sharp script, and for Michael Keaton's great performance.

9.0/10
garfield2710's rating:
People who added this item 623 Average listal rating (450 ratings) 7 IMDB Rating 7.2
Tense, claustrophobic, and surprising, this is a genuinely creepy and well directed thriller, which shows great promise about debut director Dan Trachtenberg, though the film is slightly marred by a distracting character inconsistency.

People who added this item 83 Average listal rating (57 ratings) 5.8 IMDB Rating 5.9
Southbound (2016)

Sully (2016)
Tom Hanks's performance is excellent, and the Eastwood's directing is as well, this is an earnest and gripping illustration of real life modern day heroism.

Hail, Caesar! (2016)
This film will easily alienate anyone who's not a fan of film, but this is a smart, funny Hollywood satire that both criticizes and celebrates it; though it does mildly suffer from its numerous non-sequiters.

8.8/10
garfield2710's rating:
No boundaries, rapid fire comedy done excellently, and almost always hilarious, this is a dead on satire of the music industry, and offers up dozens of massive belly laughs, with the hits way overpowering the misses.

People who added this item 556 Average listal rating (386 ratings) 7.3 IMDB Rating 7.5
Some hints of pretension hold it back a little bit, but regardless, this is a well written, complex, beautifully layered film that will warrant repeat viewings.

Snowden (2016)
Oliver Stone may "play it safe," and does sidestep some of the more unsavory aspects of the real life story, but his directing skills cannot be denied as he makes this story come to life in a passionate and intriguing manner.

Moonlight (2016)
Occasionally thematically simplistic, but overall an intriguing and complex character drama at heart, this film is well acted and well shot, and has bursts of genius.

Jason Bourne (2016)
It's not as good as "Identity" or "Ultimatum," but the film is still an exciting, and well crafted Bourne film, with the only real issue perhaps being a bit redundant.

Nerve (2016)
There are some plot hiccups, and the ending is a touch too heavy handed, but regardless, this is a smart, fast, original and intense satire, that feels scarily resonant, and successfully captures the apathy of millennials and the nature of the internet.

The Shallows (2016)
Taut, scary, and a very intense ride, this may well be the best conventional shark attack film since the very first "Jaws" film.

8.2/10
garfield2710's rating:
People who added this item 162 Average listal rating (114 ratings) 5.7 IMDB Rating 6.1
Filled with a good creepy atmosphere, excellent acting, even from the children, and a constant sense of dread, this is a vast, vast, vast improvement over the predecessor, even if the film's very poor CGI doesn't make this film as scary as it could've been.

8.1/10
garfield2710's rating:
People who added this item 48 Average listal rating (34 ratings) 5.5 IMDB Rating 6.3
Giving a fresh perspective on the age old story, this is a refreshing breath of fresh air for Biblical filmmaking, with really good performances, smooth and clear direction, and an organic message, even if the budget limitation is clear a number of times, and if the film could've been trimmed a bit.

The BFG (2016)
The darker elements of book may have been toned down, and the film sometimes goes a bit too lowbrow, but what saves it is the charming script, excellent lead performances, and astonishingly impressive visual effects.
