George Beremov's TOP 20 Best-Reviewed Movies of 2016 PART 2 [10 - 1]

[click on the title to read the quick review]

1. Captain America: Civil War [3D] 

Quote: "...flaunting an accomplished direction that manages its multiple characters flawlessly, as well as tons of literally mind-blowing, larger-than-life action set pieces, executed in spectacular fashion."

2. Zootopia [3D] (9.25/10)

Quote: "...witty, energetic, superbly fun, and packed with many lovable characters, "Zootopia" is an absolute winner on every level, and the best non-Pixar animated film by Disney since "Tangled"..."

3. Deadpool (9.25/10)

Quote: "...balanced to perfection, restlessly energetic, stylishly action-packed, and led by Ryan Reynolds' delightfully goofball, yet passionate performance, "Deadpool" is literally BLOODY awesome..."

4. Doctor Strange [3D] (8.75/10)

Quote: "Though at times it offers more than eyes can take, "Doctor Strange" is strangely fantastic, and yet another dazzling entry in MCU. Cumberbatch owns the title character!"

5. The Conjuring 2 (8.75/10)

Quote: "Helmed once again by Wan, who continues to show his ability to spread dread with skill and style, by utilizing camera techniques that emphasize the atmosphere of the film..."

Quote: "..."Hunt for the Wilderpeople" is every bit as clever as it sounds, mixing elements of a quirky coming-of-age story, and adventurous 'escapism' in an utterly refreshing way..."

7. The Nice Guys (8.50/10)

Quote: "...what makes "The Nice Guys" really special is the unpredictability, and originality of its ingeniously "nuanced" script that is simultaneously hysterical, witty, and raunchy..."

8. Hacksaw Ridge (8.50/10)

Quote: "...followed by a brutal, and hyper violent war story that contains one of the bloodiest, most uncompromising, and skillfully-executed 
battle sequences ever put on film..."

9. Arrival [3D] (8.25/10)

Quote: "With its deeply provoking script built on suspense, perplexity and subtle shocks, as well as the elegant visuals, consisting of impressive shots, realistic CGIs, and dim color palette..."

10. The Handmaiden (8.25/10)

Quote:  "Telling an intricate story of love, lust, passion, betrayal, and deception, held masterfully in a devious cat-and-mouse fashion that maintains the tension throughout its running time..."

I haven't seen two of them, but most I would agree were among the ten best of the year. Civil War definitely topped my list. And Hacksaw Ridge was still my favorite for Best Picture.

Alex, let me guess which two - Hunt for the Wilderpeople and The Handmaiden, right? :)
Yay for Civil War, and another yay for Hacksaw Ridge. The latter was my pick for Best Picture too.
