Movies in 2016 – thoughts

So last year (2016), I thought overall it was a pretty poor year. Especially for blockbuster type movies – which is generally the movies I watch. Especially in the cinema. Here is my regular look back at the movies released in the year.

I usually avoid trailers, especially the later ones, because of spoilers. I don’t mind teasers and do sometimes watch the 1st trailers if not sure about it.
