Collin's Top 10 Movies of 2016

I started off with a challenge: Watch a movie for every day of the year (currently at 406 for the year), and diversify my choices. I wanted to catch up on foreign films, silent films, and classics that I had missed. It slowly became a race to see everything that 2016 had to offer.

Rio beat out Madea's Family on Easter Weekend 2011. It was a busy weekend, as the top two films made over $25 million each and the next two films each topped $10 million. It's a good sign that people may be headed back to theaters just as the summer season approaches.
