Attempting to Rank Every Film I Saw in 2016

A tradition on this site. I look at the list of every movie I saw in 2016 (which can always be found on the Films I’ve Watched Since Graduation page), and rank them all.

It’s different from listing my favorites like I do with the Top Ten List. This is straight up ranking. I liken it to the card game War. Start with two cards. Which one is higher? In this case, which of these two would I watch first? Which did I like more? Okay, now add another movie. Where does it go in relation to the first two? And you keep going until you have an entire list.
