Wonder Woman’s Other Origin Story

It is definitely the year of Wonder Woman. The character’s standalone action film was a monster hit earlier this year and she is about to play a major role in the Justice League film. But in between those two tent-pole films comes the release of Professor Marston and the Wonder Women, a smaller scale film that tells the unexpected story that inspired the character’s creation in the first place.

There were a lot of very good movies released in 2016 and many of them were smaller movies that might be lesser known or completely unknown to the average moviegoer. I never pretend that I can tell people what the “best” movies of the year are because movies are such a subjective experience. The best I can do is share the movies that were my favorites and hope that one or two of them will catch the fancy of others So without any further ado, here are my favorite movies released wide in 2016.
