So far it has seemed like 2016 is the year of remakes and sequels when it comes to movies, and this is not necessarily a bad thing. Some of the movies released have been highly entertaining, while others have made people wonder why they wasted their time and money. There have also been a few originals that have been highly entertaining and well worth the price of a ticket. If you’re trying to catch on missed movies and aren’t sure which ones to watch, here are a few of my favorites from 2016.
Yes, I know that this is a sequel to the widely popular “Finding Nemo” and that it is geared for kids, but it is really hard not to be entertained by these fish. The cast of stars that provide the voices for the fish are perfect, especially Ellen DeGeneres as the friendly, loveable and forgetful Dory. While it is categorized as a children’s movie, it is just as entertaining for adults.
I simply couldn’t stop laughing at this movie, even though it does come with a strong message. The city of Zootopia is comprised of all types of animals, and each neighborhood has its own environment that is perfect for the residents that live there. The movie partners a rookie detective who happens to be a female bunny with a seasoned fox that is basically a con artist. It explores touchy topics like racism and inequality in a way that is touching, funny and non offensive. I truly believe that this movie is a must see for kids and adults.
Captain America: Civil War
This movie might just seem like the latest installment in the ongoing remakes of Marvel Comics, but it really is worth the cost of a ticket. Not only do you get to see some of your favorite superheroes and actors all in one place, the script is actually pretty entertaining. There are plenty of jokes and wisecracks, thanks to Robert Downey Jr. The fight scenes are spectacular, even if they are completely unrealistic. If you want to get lost in a movie that is purely entertaining, then I suggest that you take a couple of hours and watch Captain America and the Ironman battle it out on screen.
These are only a few of the great movies released in 2016, and I encourage you to find your own favorites.
