    Hey WTMers,
    everything is in the topic ! Please feel free to give your opinion about movies released in 2016.

    My Top 5 (I haven't seen so many movies this year...) :
    1 - Busanhaeng (Train to Busan) (a great zombie movies, with a marvelous young actress)
    2 - Ma vie de Courgette (My Life as a Courgette) (a beauty, sensible, for all ages, a great mastering)
    3 - Voyage à travers le cinéma français (Journey Through French Cinema) (a love letter to the best of french cinema)
    4 - The Nice Guys (great laugh, and best against-type casting)
    5 - La sociologue et l'ourson (great idea for a necessary documentary in our reactionary french country)

    My Flop 5 (I could easily do a Flop 10 list...)
    1 - Ma loute (it really pissed me off)
    2 - Suicide Squad (come on ! They could do so much better than that...)
    3 - Mademoiselle (Ah-ga-ssi / The Handmaiden) (from one of my favourite director ; it's nice, but too pointlessly complicated)
    4 - Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children (a waste of money for a good start idea)
    5 - Hail, Caesar! (I smiled... once or two - what a pity !)

    Here is mine for 2016 (note that I take the french release date)

    Top 5 :
    1 - The assassin (so much perfection !)
    2 - Steve Jobs (so much great writing !)
    3 - The strangers (so much thrills !)
    4 - The neon demon (so much lights !)
    5 - La loi de la jungle (so much laughs !)

    Flop 5 :
    1 - Gods of Egypt (How could a producer put money in such a project ?)
    2 - Suicide squad (We can check the rule that one out of two Ayer's movie is crap)
    3 - Desierto (Being called Cuaron does not make you a good filmmaker)
    4 - La mort de Louis XIV (Smells like death. It was in the title, I should have known that...)
    5 - Desde Alla (I think Cuaron only gave the golden Lion to this film to support Mexican cinema. Because otherwise it is really bad)

    Hi everyone! Nice and classic idea at this time of year. I won't give any flop though. Too few people go to cinema, I'd rather be supporting.

    Top 5:
    1-Carol. (elegance all the way)
    2-The Assassin. (I Like HHH and this one is outstanding)
    3-Rester vertical (You've never ever seen anything like this movie. Daring and bold.)
    '4-Aquarius (Still alive and kicking!)
    5-Toni Erdmann (Welcome in the modern world!)
