"I think it's the best movie so far in the MCU. Somehow they managed to have all those characters in there and make a cohesive story." - Evie Totty

"Its ability to stay deft despite its scale bodes well for Marvel's continued growth. As always, Marvel leaves me looking forward to more." -Scott Hardie

"I think I nodded off somewhere in the middle of this one and woke up to an epic battle." -Erik Bates



2: The Jungle Book

12 points | 3 votes | read reviews | watch it on Netflix

"Neel Sethi did a fantastic job playing Mowgli, and the voice acting for the animals was top-notch, as well." -Erik Bates

"It's a simple (classic) story well told, with groundbreaking animation and environment design." -Scott Hardie



3: Doctor Strange

"The visual imagery was fantastic, and well done on the big screen." -Erik Bates (#1 pick)

"The real star of the movie is the elaborate CGI artistry that illustrates all of the trippy mysticism." -Scott Hardie



4: Deadpool

10 points | 1 vote | read reviews | watch it on Netflix

"The movie was full of action, comedy, romance, self-deprecation. One of the best movies of the year. Hands down." -Evie Totty (#1 pick)



5: Ghostbusters

8 points | 2 votes | read reviews | watch it on Netflix

"All of the actors get some good material, but Kate McKinnon makes the biggest impression as an eccentric mechanical genius, and Leslie Jones scores what is (for me) the biggest laugh in the film." -Scott Hardie (#1 pick)

"It was good. It wasn't great. I was entertained, but I wasn't overcome with side-splitting laughter, either." -Erik Bates



5: Star Trek Beyond

8 points | 2 votes | read reviews | watch it on Netflix

"This movie is incredible. Jam-packed full of action, good non-action scenes. Some terrific musical nostalgia that played a major point in the film." -Evie Totty

"A fun watch despite the outrageous inconsistencies with the physical universe and numerous forays beyond the boundaries of believability." -Steve West



7: Rogue One

8 points | 1 vote | read reviews | watch it on Netflix

"Oh my god - this is Empire Strikes Back good. Saving Private Ryan in space." -Evie Totty

"In a world where I find myself being overwhelmed by a constant barrage of comic book movies, I know I can always find comfort in the X-Men." -Erik Bates



8: Kubo and the Two Strings

7 points | 1 vote | read reviews | watch it on Netflix

"For me this is the best animated film this year. A story that isn't a recycled Disney. The animation was cool." -Evie Totty

6 points | 1 vote | read reviews | watch it on Netflix

"Yes, I know i'm in the minority here. Plus I have seen the extended version. It really does make it better." -Evie Totty
