Tyler Carlsen’s Top 5:
5. The Jungle Book
For as long as I can remember, I have always craved one genuinely well-done Disney movie a year. This year, The Jungle Book proved to be exactly what I needed. With an all-star cast of voice actors and beautiful visuals and direction by Jon Favreau this movie could make people of all ages feel like a kid again.
4. Hardcore Henry
This movie intrigued the gamer lurking inside me when I saw the first trailer. From beginning to end this is a joyride of guns, explosions, and pure awesomeness that never lets you breathe. It was the most unique movie experience I’ve ever had by far.
This movie lived up to every expectation I had for it and then some. Ryan Reynolds was born to play Deadpool and made me excited for future sequels and cameos. Long live the R-Rated comic book movie!
2. The Nice Guys
I had very little expectations for this movie when I walked into the theater, and boy was I genuinely surprised! For a film with two actors who are known primarily for dramatic and action roles, Gosling and Crowe really shined in this strangely dark comedy.
1. Captain America: Civil War
As a huge fan of the Marvel Cinematic Universe I have been waiting for a group ensemble movie that could excite me like Civil War did. The mix of drama, comedy, mind-blowing action, and heart in this film made it one of the best I’ve seen in the MCU.
