Best Of 2016 In Culture

In a year that was dominated by names like Trump or Kardashian, it was nice to put the reality on hold, lay back and watch a good movie or binge on a TV show.

  1. 1

    Stranger Things

    Set in the 1980's, this show is about a boy who went missing, an a whole bunch of supernatural things happen, like the appearance of a telekenetic girl.

    This Netflix show became an instant success, even among people who weren't around in the 80's and don't get all the pop-culture refrences of that time.

  2. 2

    Suicide Squad

    I'm not into comic-books or movies about comic-book characters, yet, these movies have a way of attracting audience, including myself. I just wanted to know what the buzz is all about. Also. I have a soft spot for Jared Leto.

  3. 3

    La La Land

    Unlike Suicide Squad, this is a movie that I absolutely loved, with all my heart. This boy-meets-girl romantic musical is both a blockbuster and critically-acclaimed, and many people say it's going to do well in the upcoming award season.

  4. 4

    Game of Thrones

    I feel the urge to mention Game of Thrones at this point. Shocker. There is absolutelt nothing I can say about GoT thas hasn't been said before. Furthermore, the first 8 episodes of the 6th seasons were nothing to write home about. But then, episodes 9 and 10 came along, and set the bar so high, that my mind is still blown.

    For me, episode 9, AKA the Battle of the Bastards, was one of the best things I have ever seen on TV. It was the Who Shot JR of the millennials.

  5. 5

    Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them

    Oh, fear not! Of course I'm going to write about Harry Potter. The thing is, this is a Harry Potter movie, without a character called Harry Potter. Therefore, a new name came about-Wizarding World.

    This movie is set in 1926, decades before Harry was born, in New York City. We get to know the magical world from a whole other angle, from a different time, and meet new characters. There's still plenty to hold on to-FB is set to become a 5-movie series.

  6. 6

    Westworld

    Let me tell you-once you start watching HBO, Netflix. AMC and other cable networks, coming back to broadcast channels is practically impossible. I mean, they can't even drop the F-bomb in broadcast channels. Where's the fun in that?! Cables allow the creators more liberty, and yes-more sex, violence and everything hardcore.

    Westworld was thought-proviking and intelligent, things that cannot be taken for granted in oue era.

  7. 7

    Zootopia

    I don't normally watch cartoons, as I'm an adult, but I don't have any kids of nephews to take to the movies. However, I was a super-fan of Frozen, so I had to check this one out.

    This likeable movie is about a rabbit who doesn't want to do what most rabbits do-she decides to become a cop. Zootopia shows her struggle in a heart-warming, educational-yet-fun way.

  8. 8

    Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice

    It doesn't happen much, but sometimes words just fail me, I'm speechless. It happened to me when I watched Ben Affleck's pathetic attempt to portray Batman.

  9. 9

    Star Wars Story: Rogue One

    Not unlike Fantastic Beasts, this movie is also a spin-off and a prequel at the same time. Naturally, as a part of the Star Wars franchise, this movie became an instant hit, but there was something else about this movie-they say it criticizes the up-and-coming Trump Administration, as the rebels in the movie represent the few liberal and Democrats left in the US.

  10. 10

    Transparent

    LGTB is the new normal. That's all I need to say.
