October 2016

 

I started off the month hoping to watch a bunch of horror films, but since I was pretty much limited to whatever I could find on Netflix I only ended up watching. Sure, it’s almost half of the total that I watched, but not what I would have liked. Anyways, it was an okay month. The top two films ended up being comedies with a touch of drama from New Zealand. I also caught up with a few 2016 releases that I missed, and a couple of Christopher Guest films.

Top 10

  1. Hunt for the Wilderpeople (Taika Waititi, 2016)
  2. Housebound (Gerard Johnston, 2014)
  3. The Conjuring 2 (James Wan, 2016)
  4. Miss Stevens (Julia Hart, 2016)
  5. A Shot in the Dark (Blake Edwards, 1964)
  6. A League of Their Own (Penny Marshall, 1992)
  7. Star Trek Beyond (Justin Lin, 2016)
  8. Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker (Curt Geda, 2000)
