I'm Thankful For the Year In Movies Because…
It’s that time of year when you’re sitting around the Thanksgiving table and someone inevitably says, “Let’s each say one thing we’re grateful for this year.”
I’ll admit it, I’m the person who asks everyone to do that.
So in the spirit of the turkey holiday, I’m giving you my 2016 movies gratitude list…
Trolls: If one of these little glitter-farting singing dolls isn’t a float in today’s Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, someone needs to be fired.
Finding Dory: Who could ever forget how darn friggin’ adorable this movie is!
Alexander Skarsgård’s Body: His abs alone were reason enough to see The Legend of Tarzan.
Kate McKinnon & Leslie Jones: They killed it in Ghostbusters. Now, let’s find them an original script that isn’t just an all-female version of a previous box office hit.
Suicide Squad: I don’t care what people say, I thoroughly enjoyed this movie. Period.
Jackie: With so many Hollywood takes on the assassination of JFK over the years it’s easy sometimes to forget the true horror of the events. Natalie Portman‘s performance as Jacqueline Kennedy reminds us just how dark it really was.
Princess of Tides: It’s nice to see that Moana doesn’t need a prince to save the day.
It’s Not Over Yet: There are still more movies to see—Fences, Allied, Live By Night, Passengers and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, just to name a few.
Happy Thanksgiving, everybody!
