And although everyone is impatiently waiting for 2017 to start a blank page and help us redeem ourselves, we have to admit 2016 wasn't *all* bad. There were quite a few movies that rocked our world this year. Have you seen any of them?
19 Excellent Movies That You Might Have Missed In 2016It's not only about Deadpool and Star Wars.
1 of 19Summit EntertainmentLa La Land - A musical full of jazz, dancing, and Emma Stone’s and Ryan Gosling’s on-screen chemistry.
2 of 19AmazonManchester by the Sea - Casey Affleck gives one of the year’s most stunning performances in this rough and extremely emotionally draining drama.
3 of 19SonyGhostbusters - Finally a movie with non-sexualised, smart, kick-ass female leads. Don’t be a hater. Just watch it.
4 of 19Paramount PicturesArrival - “Meh, yet another alien movie,” you’ll say. We can guarantee you that you haven’t seen an alien movie like this one yet. It’s not scary, it’s not catastrophic. It’s an interesting study of humans and language.
5 of 19A24Moonlight - Moonlight is a coming-of-age tale about a homosexual African-American boy living in Florida. Don’t be fooled by the simple plot description. This is a tale of injustice and sensitivity.
6 of 19LionsgateSing Street - A film that takes us back to 1980s Dublin as seen through the eyes of a 14yo boy. And let us tell you, what a ride that is!
7 of 19FocusKubo and the Two Strings - The classic tale of a samurai having to fight spirits from the past. All wrapped in an adorable world of animation and an A-list celebrity dubbing.
8 of 19MadmanHunt for the Wilderpeople - If you’ve seen Eagle vs. Shark already, you’ll love this film. If you haven’t yet - what are you waiting for? Taika Waititi is the Wes Anderson of New Zealand.
9 of 19DisneyMoana - Is it perfect? No. But it’s nice to see Disney catching up with the world’s diversity. About time, too.
10 of 19A24Swiss Army Man - Some people love it, some people hate it. There’s literally no in-between. What do you think?
11 of 19CjentThe Handmaiden - A deliriously violent, sexually deranged revenge tale. A definite highlight of South Korean cinema this year.
12 of 19A24American Honey - Youth. Shia LaBeouf. Road-trip. White people in dreadlocks.
13 of 19IFCCertain Women - Oh, hey! It looks like Kristen Stewart *can* act and Twilight was a mistake.
14 of 19Screen GemsDon’t Breathe - Three kids decide to rob a blind man, but he turns out to be more capable than they anticipated. Suddenly, they become the target. It’s a work of tension, alright.
15 of 19Feelgood EntrtainmentChevalier - Did you like The Lobster? You'll like this social satire full of absurd and mocking of the macho male psyche.
16 of 19Fox Searchlight Pictures Jackie - A nice bio-pic. As simple as that.
17 of 19Paramount PicturesThe Intervention - Clea DuVall’s directorial debut turns out quite nicely, we must say.
18 of 19Wiener-Dog - An absurd comedy where the main character is a dachshund.
19 of 19FOXThe Birth of a Nation - A quest for justice and freedom serves as an answer to the racism, slavery, and the 1915 movie of the same title.
