2015 didn’t have many good movies in cinemas but few great ones – with Mad Max Fury Road one of the greatest achievements in movie history. 2016 doesn’t look like it will be on the same level but we will see. This list gets updated whenever I get to know about a new promising movie.
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story
Gareth Edwards is pretty much the only small director left who hasn’t been compromised by Hollywood. His incredible Monsters he followed up with Godzilla – one of the best shot big movies out there. In contrast to Rodrigo Cortés (Buried), Duncan Jones (Moon) and John Carney (Once) who all had amazing “first” small movies but crappy second big movies he is the one who was able to transform his creativity to a mainstream flick. Therefore I have pretty high expectations for this even bigger project.
