Blogmas Day 17 | Top Movies of 2016

This year has been filled with some amazing movies, and today I'm going to talk you through some of my favourites of 2016. I can already tell you most of them will be superhero films, but a few are probably ones aimed more for kids than 22 year olds haha!

Captain America: Civil War
Despite not seeing the previous Captain America films, I thoroughly enjoyed Civil War! I found it hard to follow the story at first 'cause I didn't know half the characters but I soon got the jist of it all! It features all the Avengers, including an appearance from the new Spiderman (which I can't wait for!) and was an absolutely great film!

Finding Dory
13 years after Finding Nemo, I felt a little too old to be going to see Finding Dory, yet there I was sat in the cinema surrounded by adults. Obviously we all had the same idea and didn't want to miss out on Ellen DeGeneres absolutely nail the performance as Dory. Although this is a kids film, I enjoyed it very much and would recommend it to anyone that loved Finding Nemo.

Suicide Squad
Definitely the most hyped up movie of the year, and a well deserved one at that! I was a little disappointed at how little screen time the Joker got, but was impressed with Jared Leto's portrayal of him. The first half of the film was great, but then the second half was a bit strange as if Michael Bay had turned up halfway through to direct it and decided to blow everything up. Besides the pacing issues in the last few scenes of the film, I'd definitely watch it again and can't wait to see more of Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn!

The Secret Life of Pets
OMG this film was hilarious! It's made by the same company that brought us Minions, and admittedly I felt there was no need for there to be a Minions short at the beginning of the film. Nevertheless, it was a great story and if I had to compare it, I'd say it was basically all three Toy Story films in one but with animals instead of toys.

Doctor Strange
Probably one of my favourite films this year, purely for Benedict Cumberbatch! I didn't know anything about Doctor Strange before Ross dragged me to see it but I really enjoyed it. It was a little trippy at times and I felt like I'd had my drink spiked with LSD haha. Mads Mikkelsen (Le Chiffre from Casino Royale) was also great as the baddie and gave me the heebie jeebies a little!

When I saw that Marvel were bringing out an R-rated Deadpool movie, I was so excited. The character is so sarcastic and so much sass it's unreal and I think Ryan Reynolds was born for the role. The film definitely lived up to everyone's expectations and will probably be one of my favourites for a long time yet!

So that's a few of my favourite movies from 2016, what are some of yours?
