Pop Culture Guy Episode 25: Top 10 Film Moments of 2016

Top 10 Film Moments of 2016

The 25th episode of the Pop Culture Guy YouTube web series, in which we list the Top Ten Favorite Moments from the Films of 2016. More honorable mentions here than in the video as well as why each is so memorable. You can find the written blogger page here

  1. The final minutes of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story - One of the best action sequences ever put in any recent film and Darth Vader's scene truly is terrifying and awesome.
  2. Quicksilver's mansion save from X-Men: Apocalypse - Better than the slow motion scene from Days of Future Past especially with the bigger environment and use of Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This) by Eurythmics.
  3. Ryan Reynolds's entire performance in Deadpool - The role that Reynold's was born to play in the only way the film could be released.
  4. Dormammu's defeat in Doctor Strange - Instead of just killing off the main villain as many superhero films do, Strange uses time manipulation to force Dormammu to relieve the same events over and over until he decides to no longer invade Earth.
  5. Airport fight in Captain America: Civil War - One of the finest set pieces ever put in the MCU which includes Spider-Man's introduction and the various heroes fighting each other in awesome and unique ways.
  6. Wonder Woman's introduction in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice - Even if she was forced into the movie to push her movie and didn't have much screen time, her introduction is too awesome to forget. The music that plays when we see her in the outfit and the fight sequence is what really convinces us of Gal Gadot in the role.
  7. Breaking Bad reference from Zootopia - An unexpected moment you probably thought would never happen in a children's animated film that is so hilarious that you can't help but laugh.
  8. "We Know The Way" number from Moana - A beautifully animated sequence with music so fitting and so majestically done.
  9. Final ghost fight in Ghostbusters 2016 - Even if the film wasn't as great as it could had been, the fight sequences are way better than in the original films.
  10. End of Jason Bourne - Even if it's the weakest film in the series, the ending was classic Bourne but at the same time so different than the ones before.
