The Circle is shaping up to be one of the big hits of 2016. The movie, based on the social media/technology book by Dave Eggers (founder of internet humor site McSweeney’s) already stars Tom Hanks, Emma Watson, John Boyega, Patton Oswalt, and Bill Paxton. And they just added Ellar Coltrane, the boy from Boyhood. Keep your eyes on this movie, and I’m guessing we’ll be doing a geek book club on this novel in the near future.
This was a great year for movies, so I didn’t want to just discuss my top ten. There were so many movies that were worthy of consideration. I’ll post the full list Thursday, but first here are the films that, while not worthy of top ten rankings, are surely praiseworthy. With so many great films released, there is no shame in silver!
