Turkey Films 2016: International Turkey Movies

Well, it's that day again when we give thanks for our blessings. We bring our family and friends together, close to us, to enjoy their presence, to stuff ourselves full of turkey and to reflect on . .  . turkey films. This is where we substitute the word turkey for a word in the movie title.

So here is the top ten list for 2016, with a distinctly international theme:

  • Turkeylie
  • Embrace of the Turkey
  • The Lives of Turkeys
  • The Turkey Thief
  • Turkey of God
  • Turkey Paradiso
  • The Girl with the Turkey Tattoo
  • Like Water for Turkey
  • Crouching Turkey, Hidden Dragon
  • The Diving Bell and the Turkey

So, as they say in Paris, "Adieu jusqu'à l'année prochaine, ont une grande journée de Thanksgiving".

The Christian website Crosswalk announced their best-of list for 2015. Their article includes reasons for inclusion and brief snippets from the reviews themselves. Here is their top 10:

10 Creed
9 The Martian
8 Brooklyn
7 Mr Holmes
6 Mad Max: Fury Road
5 Cinderella
4 Star Wars VII: The Force Awakens
3 Room
2 Spotlight

Of this list, I have seen only 2, both sci-fi films (#6 and #4). I enjoyed both a lot. But I intend to see most of the others before Oscar night. More lists to come shortly.
