Top 10 Movies to Watch this 2016

Every year, a huge list of wonderful films (and not so) is released. Aside from local and international ones, we also have independent films and whatnot. And though we make a list of what to watch, it can be quite impossible to follow.

There are days when we do not have the budget or time. Sometimes we change our mind or the film is not available for viewing in our country. These are acceptable because we will be able to see them anyway in a few months to a year or so on TV. Plus, with the emergence of Netflix, iflix, and HOOQ we can easily watch them on our smartphones and computers once it becomes available.

However, nothing beats the feeling of watching a film on cinemas during the “hype”. That is why I am still keeping a list of movies I will (try to) watch in theatres this year.

X-Men: Apocalypse

The mutants are my first love. I always watch the series every Friday after The Power Rangers when I was young. And after the global smash hit X-Men: Days of Future Past, I am even more excited to see X-Men: Apocalypse especially the badass villain.

The most powerful mutant is Apocalypse. He is immortal and invincible. Upon awakening, he is filled with a disillusionment and wanted to cleanse mankind. Thus, recruiting powerful mutants including Magneto to create a new world order. In Theaters May 2016

Captain America: Civil War

Most people are following the Marvel Cinematic Universe which means Captain America: Civil War is a film Marvel fans should not miss.

The film takes place one year after the events in Avengers: Age of Ultron wherein the government decides to set a governing body to oversee the Avengers. Sadly, this decision split the team where one is led by Steve Rogers and the other by Tony Stark. Watch the epic confrontation of Captain America and Iron Man. In Theaters May 2016

Alice Through The Looking Glass

Alice in Wonderland is a great film and that is why I am not having any second thoughts in watching this. Also, raise your wands for Alan Rickman! ✟

Alice has been gone too long where friends have been neglected. Now, Alice travels back in time to save the Mad Hatter. Tick, Tock! In Theaters May 2016

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows

What I thought was going to be a bad film, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2014) turned out to be very satisfying. Okay fine! I was really not ready to see Megan Fox play April O’Neil. But after watching the first film, I decided to watch the sequel, if there will be one.

The four brothers who hate bullies and love the city are out of the shadows to fight the Foot Clan. In Theaters June 2016

Independence Day: Resurgence

Before watching this, I would suggest people go see the prequel first – Independence Day (1996). If not, I’m just guessing it won’t affect anything. But isn’t it more fun if you are able to recognize the recurring characters and tie everything while watching the 2016 film?

“We always knew they were coming back.”

Humans know that the aliens are coming back and that is why they used the alien technology fro the previous attack to strengthen the earth’s defences; however, it’s not enough. Watch how the human race once again fights for their freedom on Independence Day: Resurgence. In Theaters June 2016

The Big Friendly Giant (BFG)

Watching the trailer and seeing the words “Directed by Spielberg” got me sold.

“Never get out of bed, never go to the window, never look behind the curtain,” reminds the little girl. The story revolves around Sophie, a young orphan girl named Sophie who befriended the Big Friendly Giant. In Theaters July 2016

Suicide Squad

I love the Marvel Cinematic Universe but I am also looking forward to DC Comics’ Suicide Squad. I do have high hopes for this and wish it will be a great one. The film stars Will Smith, Jared Leto, Margot Robbie, Joel Kinnaman, Jai Courtney, Cara Delevingne, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Karen Fukuhara, Jay Hernandez, Adam Beach, and Viola Davis.

In Theaters August 2016

Doctor Strange

After revealing that Benedict Cumberbatch will star as Marvel’s “Doctor Strange,” it was announced that they recently started its production. In case it will really be shown in November 2016, then I will be lining up to see this on the big screen.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

The Star Wars: The Force Awakens was a very satisfying film; however, the effect of part IV, V, and VI on me are really massive. But I am still looking forward to Star Wars Anthology series’ first film – Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. In Theaters December 2016


I am not even sure if this will be shown in our country but if it does, I will take the time off to watch High-Rise. Ever since I heard about J.G Ballard’s book High-Rise where they based the film, my mind has been continuously bombarded by intrigue. Then, I saw the first trailer. I must say it is the best trailer I have seen in my entire life.

Ever wanted something more? Join us at the high-rise!

Happy watching!
