As we approach the mid of the year, we tend to look ahead—toward summer’s blockbusters and autumn’s Oscar fare –yet some of 2016’s finest films are as of now behind us. The current year’s most provocative, exciting and delightfully peculiar movies have transported us back so as to New England in the 1630s and Dublin in the 1980s.

As we anticipate huge benevolent monsters and ghostbusting comediennes, here’s a glance back at the jewels you may have missed.
To analyze modern love, this baroque, science fiction romantic comedy parts into two films: The first is a evisceration of Bachelor-esque monogamy logic, where Colin Farrell’s David must discover love in 45 days or be transformed into a creature (of his decision – the overlords aren’t beasts). The second boots our legend to savage woods, where gotten away singles plot terrorist attacks against their romance obsessed society.
Director Robert Eggers’ directorial debut around a group of pilgrims expelled to the edges of a eerie New England forest is scary not for the spells of its alleged sorceress, but rather for the moody and pervasive distrustfulness Eggers uses to paint a portrait of homesick outsiders changing in accordance with the New World.

Everybody Wants Some!!
In 1980 Texas, a school first year recruit – Blake Jenner meets his new baseball fellow team members Will Brittain, Ryan Guzman, a wild group of disco- dancing, skirt- chasing partyers.
Zootopia could have limited its uplifting message to a tired disgorging of “You can be anything you want if you set your mind to it” – for this situation, a bunny who longs to be a cop. However, that cliché is fulfilled in the film’s initial ten minutes, and it rapidly transforms into something much more deep, a not at all subtle purposeful anecdote for strained race relations in America, rising above its charmingly animated surface as it goes up against, with an surprising lack of child gloves, issues like racial profiling and discrimination.

The Jungle book
Disney and Jon Favreau’s reconsidering of Rudyard Kipling’s The Jungle Book justifies its high-tech sheen with an immersive world of CGI wolves and influencing palm fronds so clear it’s for all intents and tangible.

However, as much as anything, this film is a demonstration of the force of technology to upgrade, instead of distract from, a story.
