Movies: AFI Top 10 Includes “Star Wars,” “Compton” Snubs “Danish Girl,” “Brooklyn,” “Revenant,” “Hateful Eight”

The American Film Institute top 10 lists are out for movies and TV. The films that didn’t make their cut included “Steve Jobs,” “The Hateful Eight,” “The Revenant,” “Creed,” “Joy,” “Concussion,” and “Anamolisa.” Also omitted: “The Danish Girl” and “Brooklyn.” No “Youth” either.

Of the 11 TV shows honored, only 2 came from network TV.  Even though the AFI hasn’t had much impact on the Oscars in years past, this would be a very good Best Picture list.
