    Easy one, you pick what in your opinion was the best movie of 2016 and what was the worst movie of 2016. You may obviously back up your answers with little reviews if you'd like.

    It's become a running gag for me and a few friends that I have seen way more movies than any of them has and yet I've never seen Rocky. In fact I decided to make it ever funnier that I even bought the Blu-Ray and yet I still haven't seen it.

    - and yes I've seen Creed.

    :)~ For me the best movies I've seen in 2016 is Loving and Batman vs Superman. As for the worst would have to be Office Christmas Party,

    Who don't love a bad movie? They are fun to watch, maybe bad graphics, or the plot don't add up.


    What are some of your favorites?


    The Room still cracks me up.

    Give me any Ed Wood film over most of the big budget Hollywood films cranked out these days. Or some Full Moon Entertainment.

    Batman and Robin. Really stupid movie, but (in my opinion) its a nice throwback to the old 1960's Batman with Adam West. It helps if I consider the movie a parody of Batman rather than an actual adaptation.

    The Cat in the Hat. I can't stand some of the adult humor in the movie, and the screenplay is terrible, but the movie is freakin' hilarious.

    Sharknado (2013)
    Sharknado 2: The Second One (2014)
    Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No! (2015)
    Sharknado 4: The 4th Awakens (2016)

    These have to be the dumbest movies out there, but my family and I still love to get together every time a new one is released.

    I read a review of the movie by Jeff Rovin, who wrote, "This movie should be called 'Logan's Ruin' because that's what it does to the excellent novel by William F. Nolan and George Clayton Johnson." I agree completely!

    The movie is OK, if you haven't read the book. But if you have read the book, the movie is a major disappointment. This is a rare instance where a remake could be better than the original. Given Hollywood's penchant for remaking every familiar title in sight, I'm surprised it hasn't happened to "Logan's Run" yet.

    Whenever I read the original three LOGAN novels, I always picture Jenny Agutter as Jessica 6.

    I'll always be grateful to the film for that, if nothing else.

    It's a mixed bag. It looks good and is well cast - except for Flash and Dale! The Queen song is great. Overall, the movie is kind of "meh".

    There have been earlier attempts to do a remake. Bryan Singer was attached to direct at one point.

    The casting was one of the things they did right. The script was the problem. So many memorable scenes from the book were left out. They changed the ending too. Furthermore, Peter Ustinov's old man character was a poor substitute for Ballard from the book.

    The trouble is that to be truly accurate to the novels, the cast needs to be mainly teenagers - and one middle-aged man who acts and looks like a teenager.

    And no... William Shatner is too old now.
