My Top 30 Movies of 2016

I posted my original list of top 25 movies of 2016 on January 31st, which sparked an inquiry as to why I did not include three of the films nominated for best picture by the Oscars. I mentioned that even though I liked those three films and enjoyed them very much, I thought they were overrated and probably would only make my list if I did a top 40 movies of 2016. This brought the challenge to include five more films to my original that I thought were better than these three, so I expanded my list, and even made a few adjustments to my original list. Still, I could not bring myself to include those three films, as I found others to be more interesting and engaging. What can I say... it was a great year for film.
