Peter Travers' Best Movies of 2016

I got my issue of Rolling Stone today and, lo behold, we have Peter Travers' list. Another safe, pedantic list from Mr. Traver. I used to read his reviews a lot on Rolling Stone, but at some point something happened and his taste in movies started to become more robotic. I don't really know how to fully explain his change, but nevertheless I do commend you guys to read some of his reviews from the 90s, he had more freedom to write lengthy, essay-type of reviews and they were great. I learned a lot from him as I grew up and became a film buff. Nowadays RS barely gives him any space in their issues and the reviews are just not that detail-filled. Oh, the magazine business.
