It’s joyous, romantic, energetic, heartbreaking, and just so damn fun!! Not only the best of the year, but the best of the past 2 years!!
2. Hell or High Water
An inspired neo western that deals with income inequality and family. It’s tense and darkly funny, with a great Texas atmosphere and lived in characters.
A smart alien ‘invasion’ movie that focuses on communication and unity instead of violence and bombast, underlined with an emotional and eye opening human story that demands multiple viewings.
4. The Edge of Seventeen
Hailee Steinfeld is Oscar worthy in this coming of age tale. It’s equally hilarious and heartbreaking, all the while being surprisingly relatable.
A deep character study full of empathy and raw emotions. Fantastic acting and even better direction.
6. Manchester by the Sea
A subtle, yet completely honest portrayal of dealing with grief. One of the best acting ensembles of year.
7. Captain America: Civil War
Kinetic action, real world themes, and focus on characters new and old make this one of the best entries in the MCU.
8. Captain Fantastic
Who knew living off the grid could be so interesting? A unique take on the family dramedy that shows the good and bad of both sides, and gets the family into some hysterical situations.
9. The Witch
A dark and atmospheric experience, with eerily authentic sense of dread. It’s a horror movie that’s actually horrific!
10. Swiss Army Man
The most unique and absurdly hilarious movie of the year. A movie that I feel is about normalizing openly loving relationships between two males, whether it’s romantic or not. Career performance from Radcliffe as well.
11. The Nice Guys
The best written action comedy in years. Amazing chemistry between Crowe and Gosling. Just so much fun and totally rewatchable.
12. Sing Street
An inspired story filled with great music, likeable characters that you can’t help but root for, and a great authentic 80s feel.
13. Hunt for the Wilder people
Another absurdist comedy from Taika Waititi featuring fantastic banter between the two unlikely leads and a subtlety touching story.
14. Nocturnal Animals
A dark and twisted sophomore effort from Tom Ford. Incredible ensemble all around and a story within a story that’s completely captivating.
Ryan Reynolds killed it in the role he was born to play. Very funny and a very faithful adaptation of the tone of the comics!
16. Star Trek Beyond
A very entertaining and character driven movie for the franchise’s 50th anniversary. Great new characters and great use of classic characters.

a/n: so this wasn’t requested but i thought i’d put up an initial post so you guys can see what my writing is like! i wrote this way before i started posting on here and i just didn’t expect to get so many requests right away! i’m gonna post this anyways bc i worked on it lmao. i’ll be posting a request soon, though!
he’s actually never been to a club before so he’s super excited when you ask him to go to one w you
lowkey the idea of going to a club makes him feel more grown up
anyways,, he gets all ready a bit too early so he has to wait for a while he’s so over-excited omg
he somehow remains patient as you get ready tho ok but his leg is bouncing excitedly as he’s waiting on the couch
you two arrive, looking cute as hell the doorman thinks Yoosung’s ID is fake lmao…anyways
he pulls you on to the dance floor immediately
and you guys start out dancing just like… next to each other;; not touching or anything
but ofc u inch closer and have to actually take his hands and place them on your hips
aaand cue his bright, blushing face rlly boi y'all have been dating how long now??
u think it’s adorable of course bc how can u not
he’ll eventually just awkwardly suggest getting drinks bc his heart can’t take it anymore
u guys have a rlly good time tho :’)
so Zen invites you to a party being thrown by some people he’s acquainted with in the industry
you two spend forever getting ready
bc u know… gotta make sure you guys look bomb af
and ofc when you get there, every.single.person. envies y'all immediately
ur guys’ outfits are coordinating and honestly u two are #couplegoals
you guys take selfies
at every given moment (also u both “sneakily” take candids of each other)
he introduces you to a
looooot of people and makes sure they
all know how great u are
end up dancing together
at some point and probably “accidentally” turn him on
it’s not ur fault he
makes it so easy
did someone say “quickie
in the bathroom”????
ppl at the party
notice ur absence but don’t actually suspect anything when u get back
aaa so you’ve invited Jaehee to a
party one of your friends is throwing
she asks a lot of questions;;; “will there be a lot of people?” “what’s the
expected attire?” etc.
she’s so nervous the poor angel
(mostly bc she’s going to be meeting a lot of people you know/are friends with)
u reassure her ofc
she asks to borrow some of ur
clothes for the occasion what a fckn cutie
initially she clings to u a tad but eventually gets more comfy
she even tells a few funny stories
abt her crazy boss srry jumin and just beams when people actually, genuinely laugh
she ends up drinking a bit too much tho
“this punch is so good!! what’s
the recipe?” she slurs a bit bless her
when she’s told it has alcohol in
it she just sort of goes… oh
“so enough of that then…. right,
MC?” she sort of stumbles into your arms and just starts laughing
you guys go home an hour or so
later and she just… passes tf out
in the morning, she’s a bit
hungover but she doesn’t regret it a bit;; she had a lot of fun
convince him to go to a club w you
unsurprisingly, he’s totally out of his element
doesn’t really know what he’s supposed to be doing???
you try to pull him on the dance floor, but that’s just…not
instead he secures you guys a VIP booth typical
ur lowkey disappointed bc u wanted to dance
“dance if you want to, MC. i’ll just watch.”
poor dude doesn’t even realize what he set in motion when he
not that he was going to complain once you were giving him
his own private show
although he ended up having issues… restraining himself
your night out is cut rather short when he grabs you a bit rougher than he meant to and announces that you two are leaving
of course….. you don’t mind what comes next at all
two actually go out to clubs on occasion, not too often but u know
he’s always so captivated by how you look when you two go out well, even more
so than he usually is
it’s actually a fairly normal outing
…..until he accidentally scares the shit out of you
“guess who?” he says in a weird accent as his covers your eyes from behind
after you jumped and yelped that first time, he made it his mission for the
night to find more creative ways to scare you
aaand more creative reasons to keep having to excuse himself
“Saeyoung pls we both already have three full drinks, stop going to get more.”
his excuses start getting nonsensical and it honestly becomes a game
you try and spot him before he can scare you (you only manage that once rip)
and he tries to get better and better reactions from you
nearly every time, he genuinely surprises you
the yelps are replaced by laughter eventually but that doesn’t stop him
this goes on even after you two get home and you have to desperately call for a
you two shake on it… and he then proceeds to get you really good while you’re brushing your teeth gdi Saeyoung
