Sing Street
Sing Street (2016)
11 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

A wonderful little ode to the power of music and the wide-eyed silliness of youth. Definitely one of my favorite movies of 2016.

Green Room
Green Room (2016)
13 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

It's interesting how my two favorite movies of 2016 so far are both about people stuck in rooms. I wrote about 10 Cloverfield Lane previously, but I also recently saw Jeremy Saulnier's Green Room and was absolutely riveted. Without spoiling anything, I will say that it's about a young punk rock band that gets into trouble with some very scary people. Although similar to 10CL with some of its themes (ordinary people rising up to extraordinary circumstances), it isn't slick or elegant in its presentation. Instead it's grungy, and unwashed, and absolutely mercilessly in its storytelling. It stars Patrick Stewart and the late Anton Yelchin, and is an absolutely breathtaking film.

Eye In The Sky
14 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

For fans of sweeping dramas like Syriana, this is probably the most exciting movie featuring people talking on phones and staring at screens you'll ever see. It's perhaps equally surprising that it's directed by the guy who gave us X-Men Origins: Wolverine.

The Nice Guys
The Nice Guys (2016)

The Nice Guys is a magnificently-written noir and probably one of the most memorable cop comedies of this decade but it's only Shane Black's second or third best movie.
