2016: We're Halfway Through

We are halfway through 2016, and I have watched 45 film so far. My goal was 50, but there you go.

Here's how I'm feeling:

Hate It
Maybe boring, maybe poorly-made, but in any case, frustrated and angered me.

10 Cloverfield Lane (dir. Dan Trachtenberg)
Mother's Day (dir. Garry Marshall)
Mountains May Depart (dir. Jia Zhangke)
SORI: Voice from the Heart (dir. Lee Ho-Jae)

Not Very Good
Generally incompetent, yet does not inspire passion either way.

The Angry Birds Movie (dir. Clay Kaytis/Fergal Reilly)
Dirty Grandpa (dir. Dan Mazer)
Eddie the Eagle (dir. Dexter Fletcher)
Race (dir. Stephen Hopkins)

Guilty Pleasures 
I had a good time, but I don't know who else would (other than my roommate).

The Boy (dir. William Brent Bell)
