I made it! I hopscotched over The Incredible Hulk way back in Phase One, but have otherwise trekked through 18 Marvel Cinematic Universe films to stand at the gate of Avengers – Infinity War with just over an hour to go. So let’s take a brief look at the last three films and then may I introduce the comprehensive Leisure Time MCU List of Ranking. If you’ve been following along, you probably already know what’s at the bottom.
It’s 2017, and you know what that means: It’s time to take a look at what the movie gods of 2016 left for me. For my master list this year, I combined Movies at the Theater and Movies on DVD/Streaming, since my 2015 theater count was so low. But then I actually went to the theater a lot in 2016, and those are the movies I want to talk about.
So, consider this post a roundup of the new movies I saw. Don’t worry, we’ll get nerdy with numbers and old movies next.
2016 Sure Was Super (at the movies, anyway)
I usually see about four movies at the theater each year, but the offerings this time around were so plentiful that I nearly doubled that number. Last year brought me superheroes, the supernatural, aliens and magic — and while I was harsher on some of them than others, there wasn’t a single movie that I disliked. Good job, 2016! You did one thing right!
