In 2016, we have had a chance to see so many great films, and according to audiences, the best movies were Captain America and Rogue One. However, critics seem to disagree, and they have a different opinion. Here is the list of the top movies in 2016 and if you disagree with our list write your lineup in the comments, but bear in mind that tastes differ.

10. Sausage Party

The 10th place on our list belongs to an animated movie from Pixar called Sausage Party. When the trailer came out, we assumed that the movie would be hilarious and we knew that it was not one for the kids. Seth Rogan created another film with primitive and wry humor and although the movie was a bit disappointing it managed to reach the top 10 list.
