A practice those of you who may have studied in Jesuits institutions are probably familiar with is the Examen, a nightly exercise of looking through your day for the highlights of your experience to gain insight about our lives and the points in which we might be touching the divine. Here at Zerothreetwo, we do a similar process at the end of the year by going back over the movies that have really moved us, often to a nearly divine depth, films that make us happy to be alive, and provide some insight on the human condition.
Like the original film, this one follows a group of scientists and friends who attempt to prove to the world the existence of the supernatural. The twist? What was previously an all-male ghost-busting team, is now all-female.
The year wraps up with old franchises making big bucks: some of the highest earners that fit this category don’t make it in this list (Jurassic World and The Avengers: Age of Ultron were decent movies that failed to live up to the high benchmark of earlier films in their series). However, some of the better ones, Mad Max, Star Wars and Mockingjay Part II, offered some of the most enjoyable film events of the year.
