Ha! See what I did there with the title? “… For The Rest Of The Year” as if 2016 still had months to go. Well, knock on wood because 2016 has been a wild ride and it feels like the worst, longest year ever, both to the whole world and to me personally. I’m both eager and afraid of what 2017 will become. Part of me wants to be optimistic that 2017 will be a fresh, new start–a chance to correct all the mistakes I made in 2016; the other part of me keeps saying that 2017 is just literally one day after 2016 and I’m sure one whole year of mistakes won’t just change in one day.
However, December has a lot of good things to offer, apparently. There’s still a chance that 2016 won’t end badly. Perhaps it’ll end with a blast? I don’t know about you, but here are things that I look forward to for the rest of 2016.
Sing is an animated movie from the same production house from which Despicable Me and Minions came. It’s a fable of a singing competition. I still haven’t known more information about the storyline, but it has become on my list since the first time I saw the teaser trailer a few months ago.
Have you heard about this Japanese animated movie? It has been released for quite some time now, but was just released yesterday in my country. It has been praised by critics and certified fresh on Rotten Tomatoes, and it was also reported to have beaten Moana in the box office. The story is about two high school students who are strangers to each other but suddenly switch places. They have to find a way to adjust to the situation because the switch happens randomly.
After waiting for more than a year, Sense 8 will finally come back on Netflix this month with a Christmas special on December 23. Read more about Sense8 here.
We get a Star Wars movie every year. What a time to be alive, huh? Just like any other movies/series in this post, I hardly have a clue about Rogue One other than it’s about rebellion towards the empire. Fantastic Beasts has opened up my eyes about how refreshing it is to watch a movie with little to zero knowledge about the story. Thus I’ve drawn myself from researching before seeing Rogue One. Hahaha!
I know, I know. Sherlock will technically come back on the New Year’s Day, but like I said above, it’s just one day after December 31 :p
How about you? Do you have anything to add to my list?
