88. That is the number of films I saw in theaters in 2016. Although that number was down from 2015, being a full time college student, traveling over the summer and working a side job took up most of my free time. 2016 was a rough year for a lot of people…including Hollywood. With only a couple exceptions, it wasn’t until November when the high quality films started coming out. The other ten months of the year produced a lot of garbage, making 2016 a mostly weak year for film…until the last two months swooped in to save the year.
Let’s take a look back at the best and worst films of 2016 so you know which films you still need to check out and which films you should avoid. I’ve added a few additional categories this year compared to last so check out the list and please feel free to give your feedback in the comments. What were the best and worst films of 2016 for you?
