My Top 10 Films of 2016

It’s time for my top films of 2016, and this year it wasn’t all about the superhero blockbusters for a change (except for one of them!). From Japanese anime that isn’t from Studio Ghibli to a Japanese anime that was announced to be Studio Ghibli’s last, to Disney and more Disney and even a Disney classic adaptation, 2016 was definitely an accomplished year for animation. And let’s not forget about those incredible book adaptations, which make up nearly half of my top 20. It certainly was an impressive year!

This year I’ve watched 563 films (42 released this year and 319 for the first time). That’s 47 films on average per month, and 11 on average per week. My most watched directors are Steven Spielberg, Alfred Hitchcock, and Tony Scott and my most watched actor is Owen Wilson.

And here are my top 10 films of 2016. This list changes constantly so you can view an updated list on my Letterboxd page.

My Top 10 Films of 2015

2015 had a bit of everything, and it could have easily been split down the middle with both exceptional but also disappointing films. From instalments in some of the biggest franchises around including Star Wars, The Hunger Games, Divergent, and The Maze Runner, to Disney and Pixar classics, Studio Ghibli delights, and superhero blockbusters at their best.

This year I’ve watched 610 films (80 released this year and 262 for the first time). My most watched director is Alfred Hitchcock¬†and my most watched actor is Samuel L. Jackson.

To bring the year to an end, here are my top 10 films of 2015. This list changes quite frequently, so you can see an updated list on my Letterboxd page.

My Top 10 Films of 2014

With the end of 2014 in sight, it’s time to look back on the best of this year. It’s been a great year for film franchises, superheroes, reboots, and lego men. With releases from some of the best, including Martin Scorsese, Christopher Nolan, David Fincher, and Hayao Miyazaki, there’s been something for everyone with a thrilling murder mystery, an animation about aircraft engineering, a space adventure spanning the galaxies, a dark drama about sex addiction, and a true-life story about HIV.

This year I’ve watched 785 films (90 released this year and 241 for the first time). My most watched directors were Steven Spielberg and Alfred Hitchcock and my most watched actor was Tom Hanks.

And here are my top 10 films of 2014. This list changes quite often so you can view a constantly updated list on my Letterboxd page.

My Top 10 Films of 2012

It’s that time of year again, so here are my top 10 films of 2012.

I think it’s fair to say that it’s been a very hit and miss year for film this year with some exceptional releases scattered throughout 2012, but with some completely disappointing films filling in the months between (Anything involving Taylor Kitsch, I’m looking at you!). From the end of trilogies (The Dark Knight Rises) to the start of new ones (The Hunger Games, The Amazing Spider-Man), to the combination of many film characters into one big blockbuster (Avengers Assemble) and to some brilliant novel adaptations (On The Road, The Perks Of Being A Wallflower), we’ve certainly had it all. Read below to see what I thought of the year in film, and feel free to let me know what you thought about the year too.

I still need to see a couple more films, so for a constantly updated list you can visit my Letterboxd page.

My Top 10 Films of 2011

As all bloggers do, here are my top 10 films of 2011.

There were many great films released on the big screen this year, from the origins of the X-Men to nameless drivers. Of course, there were many films that I didn’t get to see, but as I’ve started to write about film more over this past year, I have slowly been catching up. For the UK, as well, we’re still waiting for some highly acclaimed films, such as Shame, to be released over on these shores, but these will have to be included in next year’s list as I am going by UK dates.

This list is constantly changing with the more films I watch so you can visit my Letterboxd account for a constantly updated list.
