Welcome to my second annual recap of the movies that I found to be the most entertaining releases of the year. This ranking is solely my opinion and puts an emphasis on the fun I had in watching each movie and that first wave of emotion you have upon leaving the theater.
A lesser emphasis is placed on the finer details and technical aspects that are often dissected and scrutinized to no end. Not to say that I don’t value those things, they are very important, but my focus in compiling this list is more on the experience and not as much the nuts and bolts.
I do not expect you to agree with this list as these types of things are very personal and I welcome any and all feedback so please send me a message or leave a comment. My full review of each film will be found linked behind each of the corresponding movie posters so please check each of them out and let me know what you think.
