Top 10 Best Hollywood Films of 2016 – A MovizArk Take!!!

holly-best-cover

While, I haven’t seen (yet) some critically well received films like Moonlight, Silence, Fences, 20th Century Women & Elle, (which I am sure would have affected my list), I have tried my best to bring down some of the best & worst to come out in 2016. What a year it has been for both dramas & horror! A film with literally no sound in more than half of the film, Don’t Breathe, proved that you don’t need any form of paranormal activities to scare up the audience, and how just the presence of a tabby cat can ensure a relatively small film like A Street Cat Named Bob to pull the right amount of emotional strings. Speaking of emotions, Manchester by the Sea showed us a new side of grief, while Sing Street & La La Land made sure we tap our way to happiness. Laika has also come out with one of their best film since Coraline in the form of Kubo and the Two Strings, an original story & enough magic to delight us all. Director Denis Villeneuve with his expertise proved with that you don’t need battling spaceships & a saving the world scenario to ensure a good science fiction film with Arrival. Writer – Director Shane Black went back to his roots for very underappreciated The Nice Guys while Marvel continues its streak with the ensemble Captain America: Civil War. But without a doubt, in my opinion, actor/director Mel Gibson’s Hacksaw Ridge deserves the top spot for scoring right in every form, a true cinematic masterpiece! Films such as 10 Cloverfield Lane, Hell or High Water, Swiss Army Man, Hunt for the Wilderpeople & The Edge of Seventeen deserve special mention for just being excellent. The below are in the my opinion the 10 best Hollywood films of the year :

  1. Hacksaw Ridge
  2. Sing Street
  3. Manchester by the Sea
  4. Arrival
  5. La La Land
  6. Don’t Breathe
  7. Kubo and the Two Strings
  8. The Nice Guys
  9. Captain America: Civil War
  10. A Street Cat Named Bob
