Hacksaw Ridge definitely wowed me. A lot more than I thought it would, since I typically don't enjoy war movies (but I do enjoy seeing all the Oscar nominated films before the awards night. I was also very moved by Call Me By Your Name. Greatest Showman was good fluffy fun, even if I had some problems with the story and the anachronistic soundtrack.

Reached out of the screen, grabbed him by the collar, and pulled him in.

I'm a huge movie addict... with over 100+ 4K UHD films to go with my massive blue ray collection. It all started when I bought the 65" OLED a few months ago... the absolute best picture quality in a television and it makes home movies a real treat.

That being said, there's really too many to list but if I had to pick one I'd go with:

1) Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

I'd give an honorable mention to Get Out.

Mel Gibson has been such a great talent for such a long time. Interesting that he is now often known as the guy who had the drunken tirade one night.
I second Hacksaw Ridge.

Hell or High Water was great.

But the one that stayed with me and gave me that feeling of not being over even when it was over because it was still in my head was A Dark Song. It's an Irish movie and was under "horror" or something where it didn't really belong. You had to stick with it, it kind of lagged, but if you made it to the end, it was worth it.

Edge of Tomorrow with Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt was simply amazing: https://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/liv...e_of_tomorrow/

I am biased as Blunt may be my favorite actress.

The Revenant(2016). Great movie to have watched in a theater. Spetacular scenery throughout. It also won a few Academy awards.

How It Ends. But my BF and I didn't like how it ended. Was a cliff hanger...
