We absolutely love movies, and we're willing to be that you do, too. That's probably why you're currently on a website with the word "cinema" right in the name. Sometimes it honestly feels like we perceive the passage of time through the comings and goings of movies in theaters. That being said, it has become a generally accepted fact that January is a relatively dry period when it comes to film -- a time when many studios dump their inferior quality movies.

In the interest of making things easier for everyone, we have taken it upon ourselves to compile a list of the films hitting theaters this month that actually might not suck. With so many "filler" movies debuting over the course of the next four weeks, these are the ones that you should make sure to look out for over the course of the next 30 days. Without any further delay, let's kick this list off with a movie we know you will want to see.

A Monster Calls

A Monster Calls

Before J.A. Bayona takes you into the land of prehistoric monsters in the upcoming Jurassic World sequel, make sure to check out his phenomenal work on A Monster Calls. The film -- which centers on a young boy who summons a giant, plantlike monster while coping with his mother's terminal illness -- experienced a limited release in December and has thus far generated an insane amount of critical acclaim. CinemaBlend's own Sean O'Connell even referred to it as "the year's best movie," so it will be well worth your time to check this one out after it opens wide on January 6.

Release Date: January 6, 2017
