I particularly have enjoyed Star Trek Beyond more than I expected, I also enjoyed Deadpool a lot, and Suicide Squad was pretty good IMHO, though I know some people aren't fond of it.

I may be one of the very few, but I very much enjoyed Independence Day 2.

I also very much liked the new Bourne movie.

The first 75% of Deadpool was totally awesome, didn't like the end sequence though. I think overall The Nice Guys is my favourite so far, it was a fun film with good characters and a plot that made sense, which I can't say for most superhero films so far. It didn't take itself too seriously and had a real noir feel to it without being so overtly obvious as many modern day attempts at noir. It feels like it belongs with the like of Pulp Fiction or Heat but without any of the memorable stand out scenes, seems like an odd comparison in that way but I was entirely satisfied by it without really remembering any one knock out scene. The pairing of Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe was a brilliant combination that felt like a believable combo.

I don't know, there haven't really been any outrageously good films this year. The Martian basically stole 2015 without a doubt and that was late into the year so maybe something else will do the same.

Captain America Civil war. Loved the fight scene even more with Spider-man.

Pretty sure I've only seen three movies this year.

Deadpool, Zootopia and Kung Fu Panda 3.

Deadpool was the best. Only saw the other two because I had two free rentals on Vudu and they just happened to be on the rather shitty list of movies to choose from.

ID: 2 was...well, I kind of liked it because I knew what it was going to be.  I mean, I love the original Independence Day because it's so silly.  However, it seemed to me like an even more simplistic version of the original.  I still had fun with it, but it's hardly great cinema.  

Same thing with Jason Bourne.  I had a lot of fun with it because it's a Bourne movie, but it felt largely unnecessary.  And that's the problem with most movies nowadays is that they feel very unnecessary.  

I did love Deadpool.  If for no other reason than because it did NOT take itself seriously at all and just had fun with the material.  I'm trying to recall a time when movies were free of modern-day cynicism and just focused on being entertaining as opposed to the insecure nonsense like Transformers.

Wash your mouth out!  Zootopia was awesome!

Sadly I havent been the to cinema since I saw the directors cut of the last star trek - into darkness.

I really wanted to see Zootopia and Finding Dory in the cinema, but someone doesnt want to go to the cinema cos it's a "waste of money".

SIGH.
