Movie Rewind 2016 Video

"Who's with me on this?" Another new retrospective video to watch just before we wrap up 2016. This one is from fellow movie blog We Got This Covered, and features footage from most of the big Hollywood movies in 2016. Titled "Movie Rewind 2016", edited by "Whiplash Dynamo", this takes a look back at the year in movies, and some of the important moments from them. More then anything, these video retrospectives are a good way to remind you how many great movies (and not so great) there were. And it's a reminder to catch up on a few of them you still haven't seen yet, or to go back and rewatch the ones you love the most. Enjoy!

This "Movie Rewind 2016" retrospective was commissioned by We Got This Covered, and edited together by Whiplash Dynamo (YouTube channel). For more information and a list of the movies featured and music used in this, head to YouTube. This is the "first annual Movie Rewind trailer" from We Got This Covered, to compliment other videos like Sleepy Skunk's 2016 Movie Trailer Mashup and Clark Zhu's Moving Pictures 2016 retrospective. It's great to see all the big movies in this, including Kubo & the Two Strings, Nocturnal Animals and Miss Sloane, I just wish they featured more indies/art house films as well. What did you think?

  • Biggest disappointments: BvS, Suicide Squad, Star Trek Beyond, the Magnificent Seven.

      Yea, the Magnificent Seven...loved the original first seen while in high school. McQueen...great...Eli Wallach...great...his dying words...'you came back...why?...great stuff. Decided not to pollute my memories with this current abomination...lol...how ya doing, tarek?
      • Hey Bo! I'm doing good thanks. Hope it's the same on your side. The original one, I can watch it on loop. This remake was all hats but no cows alas. A waste of talent.
        • Bo
          I'm doing good too, tarek. All hats and now cows...that's pretty funny, man. It looked way too goofy to me from the trailers I saw. The actors back when are way and far beyond the actors today. They were the real deal back then; not so much today. Men vs. boys...lol...I mean, McQueen, Bronson, Coburn, Wallach...now Pratt? I think not...at least not for me. Cheers!
    • Suicide squad was my biggest disappointment of 2016, so much talent in one movie and it went nowhere...
      • Yep. The Joker seemed like a bad joke. Dialogues were heavy. Story weak. Zero chemistry between the members of the squad. It was painful to watch.
    Weird summer, great winter. // Overall, pretty happy with this year's crop.

    It felt to me like the year started stronger than it ended. Creed (came out in Jan in the UK) and Deadpool were great. I cried at Finding Dory and was scared by the nun in Conjuring 2. Bone Tomahawk, Hell or High Water and The Accountant were thoroughly enjoyable surprises. BvS and Suicide Squad were hugely disappointing and X Men Apocalypse and Star Trek 3 were the vacuous films I thought they would be. Captain America: Civil War did it for me as film of the year. I'm not saying that it was THE best film of the year but it was certainly my favourite and best film of the year.
      Respectfully, disagree Payne. MANCHESTER BY THE SEA, MOONLIGHT, FENCES, ROGUE ONE, LIVE BY NIGHT, SILENCE, LA LA LAND, and ARRIVAL were all Q4 releases. I think the year did indeed pop with a few solid flicks, but this winter has been great. Films like 10 CLOVERFIELD LANE, HUNT FOR THE WILDERPEOPLE, THE NICE GUYS, and DEADPOOL were very good. The nature of having an "awards season" just stacks this time of year with great film upon great film.

        And respectfully I didn't rate some of those later films. Arrival was decidedly average and Rogue One unengaging. However, thanks for reminding me of 10 Cloverfield and Nice Guys. Oh and my guilty pleasure of Hardcore Henry.

          "Arrival was decidedly average and Rogue One unengaging" LOL

            Haha. I know. ...
        • DAVIDPD
          Cool, cool.
        • Hardcore Henry was my best movie experience of 2016, and the nice guys the second...
          • Payne by name
            Oh I agree. For me, it reminded me of the first time I saw the final fight scene in Warrior King with Tony Jaa when he hammered down the bad guys twisting arms, breaking legs etc and all a good five years before The Raid. My heart was pounding with a mixture of laughter at the delirious action and amazement at the incredible fighting. HH stirred up that same feeling of giddy feel good lunacy.
    • X Men Apocalypse looked bad since the first teaser. It was a total mess story-wise. A drunk monkey was hired probably to come up with such bad screenplay.
    • Totally in with this, could be my conclusion of 2016.But loved Hush and before i wake...
  • Payne by name
    On Magnificent 7, I truly love the original and was disappointed that with the cast they had, that the writers couldn't have worked a little harder on the script. I do though have to tip my hat to the makers for the final half hour long shoot out. That was a well staged lesson in how to film a battle scene.
    • I found the third act tedious, even though it was well staged. Too much of a thing is like not enough.
  • Oriyan J. Ovadia
    I was so distracted by the FPS..
  • Foffee
    Good year for nerds... Deadpool Civil War Arrival Rogue One
