And more movies this time, only now I’ll be talking about the best movies released in 2016, that I obviously also have seen. I got a new Pathé Unlimited card this year, which meant I saw a lot more new movies than the previous years. Still, I think my list is not very surprising, if you’ve paid enough attention. Of course, in alphabetical order.

And we’re done with the movies of this year already! Which 2016 movies were your favourites? I think out of these I loved Fantastic Beasts or Rogue One the most. (Also I am an idiot and completely forgot to add Moana which was probably one of my top five movies of this year. Oh well, honourable mention, I guess?)
