My trips to the cinema 2016

List by Maxtaro Last updated June 12, 2017

After discovering probably the best-looking cinema in the UK, travelling to the west of America to see a 4D film about M&M's, seeing Carol one way or another, finding the greatest animated film of the decade without being told so, finally finishing the Hunger Games trilogy one year later than it should have been and entering a new phase of Star Wars sans Jar Jar, who knows what could be better than all this forthcoming.

Well, here's all the films I've seen in 2016, a.k.a. doomsday for democracy, showbusiness and the world itself. At least the movies were good enough. Well, except for the second one on this list.
