Listmania: Al’s Best of 2016 Awards

On the latest episode of the Woo L.A. Podcast, you can hear my picks for what I thought was the best in film of 2016. I waited until now to release these because I wanted to wait until I had a chance to see everything from last year. For these nominees and winners, I tried to be objectionable first, and biased second. Anyway, please take a look and feel free to comment.
