2016 releases: ranked

some notes about how this totally nonsensical content Makes Sense:
+includes the 2015 releases i saw in cinemas/came out in 2016
+will include 2016 releases i see into 2017, but only if they're awards buzz material/adhere to the cinematic year (which ends in february). otherwise they'll be in the 2017: ranked list
+thank you and good night
