    [Movies] Your Top 10 Films of 2016 (So Far)

    2012 2013 2014 2015

    Note #1: You don’t need to see 10 movies before posting your list.

    Note #2: Some 2015 movies are released in 2016 in a lot of countries, and therefore there's usually a lot of movies on the lists that shouldn’t be there. To prevent this, we use the same rule as the Oscars have, which requires the movie to have been screened in Los Angeles in 2016 to be considered a 2016 movie. If you’re in doubt, a quick visit to IMDb should tell you whether or not it’s a 2015 movie. And yes, The Revenant is a 2015 film.

    Note #3: Somewhere in January 2017, every list with 10 "legal" movies on them will be combined into one "official MMO-Champion" list.

    Note #4: Do feel free to use the thread to generally discuss the movies of 2016!

    I was going to double check that one, I wouldn't remember when it had come out. I might see PPZ this weekend, depends on if we get a little drizzle or a foot of snow. I won't feel bad for missing it in theaters, but I feel like it might be a point better on the big screen.

    Now that we're in a new year and starting fresh, it might be worth letting you know that ordinal numbers ending in 1, 2 or 3 are appended with ‘st’, ‘nd’ and ‘rd’ respectively (first, second, third).

    There is no explicit rule about screening in New York. ‘The required Los Angeles County qualifying run (described in Rule Two Paragraph 2) must begin between January 1, 2015, and midnight of December 31, 2015.’

    You can read more about it here. Rule three on page five.

    I'll reserve this spot for now, though so far I haven't seen any 2016 releases.

    1)Captain America:Civil War
    2)Don't Breathe
    3)Deadpool
    4)Suicide Squad
    5)Batman v Superman
    6)The Purge:Election Year
    7)X-Men:Apocalypse
    8)Diablo
    9)
    10)

    I will definitely see in theaters:Jason Bourne, Godzilla Resurgence(if possible, though I'll probably have to wait for the DVD)

    I will likely see in theaters:Doctor Strange, Underworld 5, Jack Reacher:Never Go Back, The Mechanic:Resurrection

    I might see in theaters:Suicide Squad, Independence Day 2, The Magnificent Seven

    I will wait for DVD for:Batman vs Superman, Cloverfield 2, London Has Fallen, Warcraft

    That's all I can remember, there may be some I'm forgetting, some I'm not aware of, the rest I don't care.

    Thanks for the info. Will probably just write "Updated month/day" this time instead though.

    1. Captain America: Civil War: 8/10

    2. 10 Cloverfield Lane: 7.5/10

    3. Deadpool: 7/10

    4. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice: 7/10

    5. Suicide Squad 6/10

    6. Warcraft: 5.5/10

    7. X-Men Apocalypse: 5/10

    8. Term Life: 5/10

    9.

    10.

    22/2/16: Watched Deadpool yesterday - Not a bad start to the year!
    24/3/16: Batman VS Superman - It by no means a classic, or even a great film but its still enjoyable. Its a 6 if I'm being harsh, but I liked it enough to get out of a shit mood. I do think the pressure is on Suicide Squad being a solid film for the franchise to work.
    19/5/16: X-Men Apocalypse - I was pretty bored during the whole film. Which is a shame, I've always enjoyed the X-Men series.
    17/6/16: Term Life -The whole film just felt flat. The editing was poor and the actors just looked like they were there to cash in a cheque. It still had some likeable moments, but not enough to make it a good film. They really missed the mark here, with the right cast and crew this could have been a really strong adaptation. Anybody still interested in the story should just check out the graphic novel.
    5/7/16: Quick add of Warcraft and Claverfield Lane... I was bored throughout Warcraft but really liked 10 Cloverfield Lane.

    Reserved for now, haven't seen anything since Star Wars which doesn't count. Stuff I will see definitely is: Jason Bourne, Underworld 5, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, Cloverfield 2, Star Wars Rogue 1, Independence Day 2 and maybe Hail Caesar. Potentially more but those are ones I have a vested interest in.

    978 empty seats?

    Of course not, I sat in one of them.

    And well, a few hundred others. Decently large theatre, though.
