Movies worth watching in 2016

2016 has turned out to be a good year for Hollywood:). This year we did see some huge blockbusters like Batman v Superman, The Jungle Book, Captain America: Civil War, X-Men: Apocalypse etc. With still 4 months left,  2016 still has things to offer:). This is my first post on 2016 movies I liked,I will keep on adding new posts as and when I watch some good 2016 movies:). Lets begin with some 2016 movies I have seen and feel are worth watching this year:).

The Jungle Book:-
The Jungle Book is a remake of one of the most famous cartoons based on the Rudyard Kiplings eponymous works.In this movie, after a threat from the tiger Sher Khan forces him to flee the jungle, a man-cub named Mowgli embarks on a journey of self discovery with the help of panther, Bagheera, and free spirited bear, Baloo. One of the best things about the movie is that it is visually brilliant:). The visual effects and fantastic action and chase sequences keep you at the edge of your seat and keep you thrilled. Though it may not be that great in terms of story as compared to the original tv series i grew up watching, it still is a fun joy ride adventure:). Watch this movie with whole family as it is total fun:).

Genre:- Adventure
Director:- Jon Favreau.
Bore Meter:- Visually brilliant and very entertaining:). No chance of getting bored:).
My Rating:-

Zootopia is the best animation movie i have seen so far this year. In this movie,in a city of anthropomorphic animals, a rookie bunny cop and a cynical con artist fox must work together to uncover a conspiracy. The best thing about this movie is its story:). It has a very original and very refreshing script. It deals with the raging subject of stereotyping, racism and set prejudices and manages to convey its message in a very fun way:).Also the characters are very relatable. Overall, Zootopia is a very good movie with original script and is total fun to watch:).

Genre:- Animation.
Directors:- Byron Howard,Rich Moore,Jared Bush.
Bore Meter:- Good story and entertaining:). Won't get bored:).
My Rating:-

Deadpool is a good fun superhero movie from the world of Marvel:). Here, a former Special Forces operative turned mercenary is subjected to a rogue experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers, adopting the alter ego Deadpool. Though the movie doesn't have much to offer in terms of story, the movie works very well thanks to its central character. The director and the lead actor, Ryan Reynolds, brings a lot of enthusiasm into the movie. The script is also very funny, filled with outrageous dialogues and Ryan Reynolds makes the character his own giving the movie a lot of energy. Overall, Deadpool may not be a movie with a great story, but the director and Reynolds make the movie a lot of fun to watch:).

Genre:- Action, Comedy.
Director:- Tim Miller.
Stars:- Ryan Reynolds, Morena Baccarin.
Bore Meter:- Good pace and fun movie:). Won't get bored:).

Kung Fu Panda 3:-
Kung Fu Panda 3 is the third installment in the Kung Fu Panda series. In this movie,when Po's long-lost panda father suddenly reappears, the reunited duo travel to a secret panda paradise to meet scores of hilarious new panda characters. But when the supernatural villain Kai begins to sweep across China defeating all the kung fu masters, Po must do the impossible-learn to train a village full of his fun-loving, clumsy brethren to become the ultimate band of Kung Fu Pandas.What works for the movie is its charm:). It may not have an original idea or story as compared to animation movies like Inside out and Zootopia, but Kung Fu Panda still manages to engage you with its charm and humor:). Overall, Kung Fu Panda 3 is a fun charming movie that you can watch with your whole family:).

Genre:- Animation.
Directors:- Alessandro Carloni, Jennifer Yuh Nelson.
Bore Meter:- Total fun movie:). Won't get bored:).

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice:-
Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice is the sequel of the 2013 movie Man of Steel. In this movie, fearing that the actions of Superman are left unchecked, Batman takes on the Man of Steel, while the world wrestles with what kind of a hero it really needs. Batman vs Superman is a good film but it fails miserably when compared with the batman trilogy films of Christopher Nolan. Though the movie has a great plot which garnered a lot of interests due to its excellent trailers, the movie isn't able to live upto the expectations. Unfortunately for the movie, the direction is weak, and also very inconsistent in parts. What works for the movie is its good casting, and excellent music by Hans Zimmer:). Ben Affleck is really good as Batman.Also Gal Gadot does a great job as Wonder Woman. Overall, despite its many flaws, Batman vs Superman still manages to be a good watch:).

Genre:- Action, Adventure.
Director:- Zack Snyder.
Stars:- Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Jesse Eisenberg, Amy Adams.
Bore Meter:- Watchable movie. Won't get bored:).
