№10 "Cloverfield, 10"
(10 Cloverfield Lane)
Successfully pretending to be a sequel to Monstro, an excellent psychological thriller about a girl (Mary Elizabeth Winstead), waking up in handcuffs on a reinforced concrete bunker floor, whose formidable host (John Goodman as a prize caliber) claims that the rest of the world has come to an end.
№8 "To each his own"
(Everybody Wants Some !!)
A frivolous, but irresistible masterpiece of Richard Linklater, who returned to his own roots, is one of three indications that perhaps the most productive film-making of the outgoing year suddenly turned out to be more or less a school musical (see also Sing Street and Almost Seventeen).
№6 "New Era Z"
(The Girl with All the Gifts)
Economical, threateningly rational and surprisingly distinctive - as far as it is possible in principle - a horror on the always popular theme of the zombie apocalypse, which had to swell for the whole half of the season like the dull "Walking Dead". Young Sennia Nanua's phenomenal debut.
An elegant melodrama that warmed up last winter about everything (but first and foremost, again about the choice) - which proved, in particular, that good writers (like Nick Hornby) sometimes make excellent scriptwriters, and good young actresses (like Sirsha Ronan) - wonderful adults.
№3 "At any cost"
(Hell or High Water)
Wonderfully written, masterfully filmed, excellently played and quite topical neo-vestern about the brothers (Chris Pine and Ben Foster) robbing banks in Texas wilderness, and the elderly ranger who took their trail (Jeff Bridges in a role that the second Oscar could well bring him) .
"The abominable eight"
This product got into the category of the same “transitional from year to year” and at the same time in the top 10 best films of 2015-2016. Quentin Tarantino is a well-known director who knows how to make movies, and he always does a good job, so the popularity of his next creation is understandable.
Eight people who were completely different in type, character, occupation and other details, including a headhunter, a criminal, a cowboy, a general, and others, were once all together in a small shop located on the periphery. Someone was in a place so remote from people from the very beginning, someone, right in the presence of the spectator, reached the destination and was forced to stop there because of the disgusting weather conditions. The essence is different: it soon became clear that someone present was an impostor. Obviously, it must be revealed and punished, but will it work out?
Everyone has their own secrets in the closet, in our case - in the phone. The film "Ideal Strangers" once again proves that all the secret becomes clear and sometimes it is better to abandon the adventurous game, if you understand that the stigma in the cannon.
So, a large and at first glance friendly company of people familiar to each other gathered for a pleasant pastime. At first everything was fine. Nothing terrible happened even after the first harbinger of misfortune: the hostess’s offers to play a “fun” game. Its essence was to share the whole evening with others around your personal life, namely, to turn on the speakerphone during calls and read all incoming messages aloud. Naturally, soon the majority of those present were not amused, but the smell of trouble or danger was hanging in the air.
The only thing in our list of the 10 best films of 2016 is the cinema of the genre “horrors”. The second part of the sensational mystical creation about a married couple fighting evil, once again found a response from the audience. Most likely, this happened thanks to the well-known name of the director and the high-quality picture, because there are more and more ghost stories every year.
This time, the target of the attack of otherworldly forces was a poor family from the suburbs of London. Mother and it was so hard to cope with four children alone, and then the ghosts arrived, it was simply impossible to live in the house. Despite the premonition of something bad, the spouses of Warren could not stay away and went to help the family.
Yes, another comic book movie. The next part of “X-Men” could not help but get into the top 10 films - 2016. It more or less met the expectations of the audience, and therefore earned high marks and positive reviews.
In this part, the mutants finally learn more about their origin. But at what cost? A new deadly problem hung over our blue planet: an invulnerable and dangerous enemy appeared, whose name is Apocalypse, it is the most ancient mutant with unimaginable power. Since the enemy is immortal, the X-Men will have to spend a lot of time looking for a way to destroy the one who cannot be killed.
Our top 10 of the best films of 2016 comes with a comedy with a mix of crime and action movie. Perhaps the topic of forced (or not) cooperation of two opposites, one of which. a little funny, never lose its relevance.
So, two guys have to become temporary partners to solve a loud crime about a kidnapped girl and save their skins, because they were involved in a serious war. The first is a brutal and serious man who will easily fill his face with anyone if he is paid for it. The second is an infantile and slightly dizzy young man working as a private detective. Their acquaintance was not a reason for friendly memories, and methods of doing business differ, but together they are able to move mountains. Though not aware of this.
Almost every new product has a lot of opinions and reviews - both from regular users and from critics. There are obviously more positive reviews, otherwise films would not be included in our list. In magazines, newspapers, social networks - everywhere people tend to tell others about their invaluable opinion.
In some reviews are similar: if the flaws and shoals are obvious, everyone notices them, if the film is beautiful, it’s stupid to deny it, if the actions of the characters are illogical or the actors play it very badly - this also does not hide from the eyes of advanced film fans. But subjective opinions are different, such as attitudes towards the characters, the storyline, camera work, etc.
This is such a diverse genre of the top ten films of the current year. Of course, there are much more good and interesting films than are shown in our top, but you have to choose them yourself.
