And so, after all the fuss I’ve made and all the hours I’ve spent ruminating upon them, here are my choices for the best of 2016.
The nominees are listed here.
Been a minute since my last soda review, but I was at IKEA the other day and saw this Easter-themed drink for sale. Given the enduring popularity of my Julmust review, I knew I had to review this mysterious new drink as well. So, come with me as I brave the uncharted waters of Dryck Påskmust!
Here it is, the final batch of 2016 reviews. Savor them, because I’m not sure when I’ll be putting up more.
The first 9 films are ***½. The final three are ****.
I decided to break the final batch of capsule reviews into two: this contains all the remaining films which I ranked *** or less; the final batch, which you’ll get in the next day or two, will contain all the ***½ and **** films. This list, however, does contain two Best Picture nominees and three films nominated in other categories.
Please also note that these reviews may contain spoilers for the films in question.
The biggest categories seem pretty well settled at this point. There are a couple of question marks, but I have a fairly good idea of what’s happening two weeks from today.
First the good, and now the bad.
If I’ve let you down by not seeing enough bad films this year, I apologize. I’ll do better (or worse) next time.
But let me tell you, even if there was no film this year which approached the exquisite shittiness of Dancin’ – It’s On!, there was plenty to grouse about.
The films will be listed in alphabetical order.
