We're about at the halfway stage through the year so how would you rank your favourite 5 / 10 movies of the year so far?

Here's mine

1. Sing Street
2. Zootropolis
3. Eye In The Sky
4. The Danish Girl
5. Room
6. X-Men: Apocolypse
7. Dirty Grandpa
8. Spotlight
9. Grimsby
10. Money Monster

With Eddie the Eagle, Deadpool and Me Before You just on the verge I'd say..

Looking at my EOY from 2015, six of my top 10 came from the first half of the year and four from the second half, with the same kind of split when expanding to look at the top 20.

At the other end of the scale, London Has Fallen, Zoolander 2 and Everybody Wants Some are easily the three worst I've endured so far.

I haven't seen a lot of 2016 movies due to recent exams. For me, my favourite film of 2016 would have to be Deadpool.

My top 5 So Far:
1. Zootopia
2. The Secret Life Of Pets
3. Finding Dory
4. Ghostbusters
5. The Shallows

Very very strong year (I'll do a top 10 later but these 5 are a bit ahead of the rest for me!). Zootopia is still miles ahead at the top, 2nd to 4th are really really close- loved all of them and also loved The Shallows. I'd say Room is also in the top 10 somewhere but can't think of what else I'd choose off the top of my head!

Deadpool, Star Trek, X-Men, Captain America, Finding Dory spring to mind...

lots of decent movies though, I'd list them if I could remember them all - but I always comment in the threads cool.gif

Going by UK release dates, Joy counts as 2016 by one day!!

Like Jack, my favourite has been Sing Street. Need to think about the rest.

01 Room
02 Zootropolis
03 Money Monster
04 10 Cloverfield Lane
05 How To Be Single
06 Nerve
07 Finding Dory
08 Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie
09 Joy
10 The Conjuring 2

Worst:

01 Pride & Prejudice & Zombies
02 Mother's Day
03 Midnight Special
04 The Neon Demon
05 Maggie's Plan

Controversial I know about Maggie's Plan & Midnight Special as their critics faves but they were so pretentious and longwinded. I was bored senseless in both.

05 Gods of Egypt

64 Capture the Flag
65 Dad's Army
66 Midnight Special
67 The Choice
68 The Big Short


Not even gonna lie, I adored the whole visual package of Gods of Egypt so much laugh.gif I imagine there aren't going to be many more movies challenging the top 5 for the rest of this year, probably Fantastic Beasts and maybe Moana, Star Wars, Doctor Strange if they end up great.


The Big Short was like watching a film in another language, not a clue what was happening...

I agree about Maggie's Plan. I didn't totally hate it but none of the main characters felt very likeable and it left me very underwhelmed considering the good reviews.

Nerve and Finding Dory would both definitely have a place in my top 10 now

The trailer made it look funny as well, but a lot of the humour went right over my head and like you say, virtually none of the characters were likeable at all.

Only seen a handful of new releases this year but I'd rank them thus:

01 Captain America: Civil War (not perfect, but a great culmination of the MCU thus far)
02 Green Room (great, super tense)
03 Bone Tomahawk (very good although a difficult watch at times)
04 The Hateful Eight (excellently made, not sure what it was trying to achieve)
05 Deadpool (consistently entertaining but most of the best bits were in the trailer)
06 Suicide Squad (underwhelming in most ways but still fun)
07 Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (enjoyable for spells but generally disappointing and makes very little sense)
