The final count for this year is: 88 movies.
(2015 count: 66, 2014 count: 95)
*not including Blu-rays/DVDs, unless I reviewed them here.
*not including any movies I did not review, except I'll throw in Rogue One since I saw it in the theater this past Sunday.
*I am seeing Sing today and Fences on Thursday, so I'm counting those two in this wrap-up, as well.
(in no particular order, except for #1)
The top 10 movies I enjoyed this year are:
1. American Pastoral. I still think about this movie sometimes. I tried reading the book, as well, but I could not get through it - it's very different from the movie. 4.5/5 stars.
*out on Blu-ray/DVD on February 7.
2. La La Land. The beginning of this movie didn't really reel me in at first, but eventually I started liking it more and more. Although I could see why the film ended the way it did, it was still rather heartbreaking, in my opinion, and it wasn't something I was expecting. 4/5.
