My top 10 Best and Worst Movies of 2016
WORST
10-THE HUNTSMAN: WINTER'S WAR
I'm sorry, but this movie is just made of fail.
If it wants to be a faithful adaptation of Hans Christian Anderson's "The Snow Queen", it makes way too many changes.
As a sequel to "Snow White and the Huntsman", it lacks the epic tone and engaging characters of the first one.
As a fantasy movie in and of itself, it's flat, boring and half-assed. Even Ravenna, the best thing about the first movie, is not interesting.
8-BATMAN VS SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE
When I first reviewed this movie, I said that at least the Batman half of this movie is good.
Now, I take it back.
It isn't.
It really, really isn't.
So, we either follow a murderous Batman that has none of the strong moral code of the original comic Batman, or a Superman that doesn't make any sense and is surrounded by people who don't act or talk like normal people.
So yeah...this one's a turd all around.
7-WARCRAFT

Top 10 Friendships in Movies and TV Shows
10-E.T. AND ELLIOTT
Of course, all these "litle kid befriends a supernatural creature" movie owe it to this movie. This movie was the best of its kids, showing how, through their friendship, Elliot's life becomes more stable and peaceful, and E.T. learns a lot more about Earth and the human race.
It's also great because, even though E.T. needs to go back to his home planet, he knows he'll always remember and treasure his friendship with Elliot. Which is why the ending of the first "Equestria Girls" movie rubbed me the wrong way, Sunset Shimmer choosing to stay on Earth rather than go back to Equestria, where she belongs.
9-FRODO BAGGINS AND SAM GAMGEE
This is one of the sweetest and most tender friendships ever put on film. Sam isn't a great warrior, or a powerful wizard, or a magical elf. But throigh his kind words, his wise advice, and his determination to protect Frodo from all harm, Frodo manages to make it through the entire trip to Mount Doom.
Yeah, he did try to us

Top 10 Most Badass Alien Invaders
10-THE MARTIANS FROM "WAR OF THE WORLDS"
I can't make a list like this and not give props to the original badass alien invaders.
H.G. Wells' book started the aliuen invasion genre as we know it. Every single alien invader on this list, in one way or another, owe their existence to Wells' Martians.
These are aliens so powerful that no amount of firepower could stop them. The only thing that could stop them was the flu. if it wasn't for their lack of immunization, they would have conquered Earth easily.
And of course, the movies based on the book do a great job depicting that.
In fact, in the "War of the Worlds" TV show, the Martians were immunized, so humanity had to fight a grueling battle to wrest control of the planet away from the Martians.
9-MUREAS, FROM BROKU5000'S DRAWINGS
Of course, broku is most well known for his heroine, Xegito.
But what many people don't know (mostly because her pic is no longer in his gallery) is that he also created a villain.

Top 10 Things Nickelodeon's TMNT Did Right
10-IT ADAPTS MORE THAN JUST THE MIRAGE COMICS AND THE 1987 SHOW
It would be exceedingly easy for this show to just use stuff from the Mirage Comics and the 1987 show.
Instead, they breing back things from other parts of the franchise. The 90s movies, the 2003 show, the Archie comics. They take obscure stuff that only die-hard fans of the franchise would know, like Lobsterface or Snappy Warhol, and they adapt it.
9-IT MANAGES TO BE ITS OWN UNIQUE THING
One thing that I liked about "Turtles Forever" is the concept of the Ninja Turtles Multiverse: that every new incarnation of Ninja Turtles is its own separate universe.
I like that thois show respect that. Again, it would be exceedingly easy to just do a carbon copy of the 1987 show,and many of these "reboot" shows fall for that trap. But this show, while adapating elements from all across the Ninja Turtles franchise, is doing its own thing, and it can be enjoyed as its own unique thing.

I can read minds with clarity

You let some pendant-wearing idiot take your place
Now bow before the master of the Kelshin race!

Top 10 Sequels That Stray Far From the Original
10-PROMETHEUS
So, at the end, a Xenomorph burst out of the engineer, which shows up the origin of the Xenomorphs...and that's it.
Other than that scene and the fact that the evil bussiness dude's last name is "Weyland" (as in, the Weyland-Yutani Corporation), this movie really has nothing to do with the previous "Alien" movies.
Which is dad, cause the original script was a legitimate prequel to the "Alien" movies.
9-THE MANGLER 2
The original was about an evil boiler room.
This one is about an evil computer program.
So...pretty much nothing to do with the original movie apart from the name.
8-OPEN WATER 2: ADRIFT
The only thing that this movie has in common with the original is the "morons getting lost at sea".
And that's it. No returning characters, no sharks, not even the same filming techniques.
7-THE URBAN LEGENDS SEQUELS

10-TOMMORROWLAND
OK, two things about this one:
originally, this spot was meant for "Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation". However, that's a movie I walked out of, so now I've been informed that the reason for me not liking that movie is because of what I THOUGHT was a plot point that ruined the movie. It wasn't. So, here's a movie I didn't walk out of.
Second, yes, when I first reviewed this movie, I gave it a positive review., My mind changed since then.
So, why is this one of the worst movies? Because of how preachy and holier-than-thou it was. That spiel about how apocalyptic fiction is runing humanity, and that we should all be dreamers and free-spirited in order to build a better future...it was so sanctimonious that I swear it could have been written by Kirk Cameron.
I'm sorry, but I LIKE post-apocalyptic fiction. I like the first three "Mad Max" movies (haven't seen the fourth one, in case you are wondeing why that one isn't on the "best" list). I like "The Hun

Top 10 Misunderstandings About Source Material
10-SEVERAL FRANCHISES ARE ACTUALLY HASBRO TOYLINES
Hasbro has far more influence in popular culture that people give it credit for.
One such example is Transformers. The source material is NOT the 80s cartoon show, the source material is the Hasbro toyline.
G.I. Joe? The source material isn't the 80s cartoon show, it's the toyline.
Rom? He isn't a Marvel character, he's a Hasbro toy character that was adapted into a Marvel comic.
Same thing with Zoids, Jem, M.A.S.K., C.O.P.S., Inhumanoids, Go-Bots and Action Man, all of them are Hasbro toylines.
Even "Friendship is Magic" is an adaptation of a Hasbro toyline.

10-THE GAMES MAKER
This gets the number 10 spot because it's not actually bad, it's just really, REALLY confusing.
The plot is all over the place, with plot points introduced and then dropped. The main character is named Ivan Drago, and we are supposed to accept that and not question why is this little kid named after one of the Rocky villains. The movie clearly doesn't take place in Russia, so there's no justification for the confusing name, either. And I really don't know where or when this movie takes place.
9-THE EQUALIZER
This has to be one of the worst movie remakes of a TV show ever. Robert McCall, the badass in a black suit who could kick ten differents kind of ass, is replaced by a prissy, sissy guy who couldn't even defeat the Amoeba Boys, let alone any serious mobster.
And Denzel Washington is a geuinely badass guy, so I blame this on the monkeys who wrote the script.

Top 10 Worst Comic Book Movies Ever
10-HOWARD THE DUCK
This one gets the lowest point on the list because it's one that I kind of like. Yeah, I know, it's nothing like the comic, it dumbs down the source material, it's nowhere near as good as you'd expect a George Lucas movie to be. But honestly...it's kind of a guilty pleasure for me. Frankly, I'd much rather watch this movie than the rest of the movies on the list, and the theme song is AWESOME.
That being said, this movie's biggest problem is the fact that it didn't know what its target audience was supposed to be. It tried to be family friendly, but also raunchy and adult, resulting in something that I guess is too kiddy and silly for most adults, and too scary and mature for most kids.
9-FANTASTIC FOUR: RISE OF THE SILVER SURFER
MAN did they drop the ball on this one...
...why does coming in contact with the Silver Surfer cause the Four to switch powers? What's the point of them constantly switching powers? If they wanted a character that has all four

Top 10 Movies That Should Have Won an Oscar
10-HOWL'S MOVING CASTLE
Personally, out of the only three Miyazaki movies I've seen, this one is my favorite. It has genuine conflict, it has a clear cut villain, it has lot of action scenes and a cast of memorable characters. Yet it has the same majestry, poetry and wondrous tone that all Miyazaki movies are famous for. I never read the book, and I understand the movie changed a lot of things from the book, but I think all those changes were for the better. It's not slow or dull like most Miyazaki movies and it manages to develop likable characters and send a powerful message while still having a central conflict.
9-THE WRESTLER
Here's the thing: since I'm Argentinian, I know very little about U.S.A. wrestling. I never  watched WWE or TNA or ECW or WCW or whatever. But I know about "lucha libre" (Latin American wrestling). I watched "Titanes en el Ring" religously as a kid, it was one of my favorite shows of my childhood, right there with "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtl

10-"MONSTERS UNIVERSITY"
Unlike most of the other movies in this list, I knew this was gonna be bad going in. I went in this movie with zero expectations, so I wasn't actually dissapointed, which is why this movie is so low on the list. That being said...a "Monsters, Inc" prequel where Mike, Sully and Randall go to college? Really, Pixar? This is how low you have sunk? What's next, a movie about the fleas living in Remy's back?
9-"THE LONE RANGER"
When I heard that Disney and Bruckheimer were doing another version of the Lone Ranger, I expected a thrill ride full of excitement, gunfights, one-liners, and a kickass score. And I got that...in the last 10 mintes of the movie. The remaining 80 minutes were filled with pointless bickering between the Lone Ranger and Tonto, Johnny Depp hogging the screen time to feed his massive ego, and scenes that, to me, are far too gruesome for a Disney movie.

10-BRAVE
First of all, before you starts going apeshit, let me make one thing perfectly clear: I respect those who actually like Pixar. I have nothing against people who like Pixar, and I understand the strong positive effect it has on people. Pixar just isn't my cup of tea, that's all. The ONLY Pixar movie that I like (nay, love) is "The Incredibles", and much of my dislike of Pixar stems from dissapointment at the fact that they never did something as good as "The Incredibles".
With that being said...Doug pretty much nailed it on his Disneycember review. This is the same shallow, cookie-cutter, sugary-sweet "Disney Princess" stuff we've been forced to swallow since "Enchanted" was released.
Normally, this wouldn't be so bad (certainly not enough to make it on the list). So, why is it in here? Because how much of a letdown it was.
When this movie was first starting to get made, they said Pixar was doing an epic animated fantasy. I immediately pictured in my head so

So, I just came back from seeing "Beauty and the Beast" and...

...I think it's pretty good!

The acting is great, the writing is great, and the special effects are just spectacular!

I like that the movies has things that weren't present in the 1991 version. The plot point about Prince Adam starving the residents of the village is a great way to actuallly explain HOW Prince Adam was mean in the past.

We are also shown Belle's mother, which again is a nice touch.

Here, the Enchantress cast a spell on the villagers that makes them forget about Prince Adam, which fixes the plot hole about the village not remembering their own prince.

It adds songs that weren't present in the 1991 version. My favorite is Beast's solo song, because Beast never had a solo song in the 1991 version.

However, I do have things to criticize about this movie.

First, Maurice. Maurice is supposed to be a fun, silly, wacky character, very similar to Pinkie Pie or Michelangelo. But here...he's dour, serious and contemplative. That, to me, misses the point of Maurice's character entirely.

Second, this movie is shorter than the 1991 version. Which isn't bad in and of itself, it's just that this movie keeps trying to reoplicate scenes from the 1991 version, but the 1991 versionb, being longer, had more time to properly develop those scenes.

And finally, there's the issue of LeFou and his sexuality...

...there's a reason I deleted "Top 5 Worst of Denying a Character is Gay" from the gallery. And that's because I'm not the right guy to talk about homosexuality. Homosexuality is a very politically-charged and religiously-charged topic, and I want to stay as far aawy from controversy as possible. I don't want trouble, I don't want to offend anyone, so I'd rather not talk about it.

All I'm gonna say is that LeFou is a funny character, well acted, well written, and with a lot of hilarious lines, and leave it at that.

So, I definitevely recommend this movie.
So, I just came back from seeing "Kong: Skull Island", and...

...I liked it!

The acting is great, the writing is great and the action is great.

And speaking off the action, yeah, we get several "Kong VS giant monster" fights, and they are all great.

The effects are great, far more realistic and better done than the 2005 version.

All the characters are enjkoyable and memorable. Samuel L. Jackson is great as the Captain Ahab-esque villain obsessed with killing Kong, but John C. Reilly steals the show as the Crazy Awesome World War 2 pilot.

And the natives of Skull Island are done in a much more respectful and less racist manner than the natives from the 2005 movie.

In the end, if you are like broku or like me,and enjoy giant monster movies, you'll enjoy this. Otherwise, you'll probably not like it as much, but it still stands as a fun adventure movie.
So, I just came back from seeing "Doctor Strange" and...

...it was pretty good!

The effects are great, really capturing how dazzling and awe-inspiring magic should be. All the different dimensions and spells were really well done.

The action is great, the writing is great, and the actors are all great.

I like how Doctor Strange here is snarkier and more of a smart-ass, it's a vast improvement over the tradiotionally stoic and humorless (and therefore, one-note) depiction of Strange.

The ties to the larger Marvel Cinematic Universe were very well done, tying to both the upcoming "Thor: Ragnarok" and the ongoing story arc with the Infinity Stones.

My only complaint is that Strange at the beginning starts a bit whiny, constantly complaning about the events that happen around him and about his injured hands.But he gets better as the movie progresses, so it's not a major complaint.

Finally, let's adress the elephant in the room, the one thing that pissed everyone off:

Tilda Swinton as the Ancient One.

I...don't have a problem with it.

The overall basics of who the Ancient One is as a character (a powerful sorcerer that teaches Doctor Strange magic) are there. The movie does a great job of creating a very wise and powerful, yet friendly and relatable character. Very similar to characters like Yoda, Gandalf, Princess Celestia or Albus Dumbledore.

And I don't think the fact that a white woman plays the character detracts anyting from it. The role is very race-neutral and gender-neutral.

So, I definitely recommend this one.
