Float Like A Butterfly, Sing Like A Bee.

Hello Everyone !
~ Welcome to Daniel’s Critical Corner ~
Prepare Your Acceptance Speeches !  It’s Time For:
The Best of 2016

Well folks, today is your lucky day !  In the midst of several award shows,
here comes my thrilling take on 2016’s cinematic offerings.  It was indeed
one heck of a crazy year, but visiting the movie theaters was a great way
to beat the heat (and escape election woes).

 We will never forget the epic battle between Jill Stein and Gary Johnson !!!
Then there were those other two that kept making the news.  Ryan Lochte
and Michael Phelps.  Ha-ha !

Alright, here are ten of my favorite flicks (in no particular order) !!!
