Dominic Toretto and his crew of street racers plan a massive heist to buy their freedom while in the sights of a powerful Brazilian drug lord and a dangerous federal agent.

I never had any interest in this franchise but wanted to see this one because it was featured on the podcast 'How Did This Get Made.' It was a waste of time, thought to their credit the action sequences were well shot & choreographed. An edit of just all the action sequences with none of the plot or drama would be a much better way to see this.
2. Paul (2011)
R | 104 min | Adventure, Comedy, Sci-Fi
Two English comic book geeks traveling across the U.S. encounter an alien outside Area 51.
Votes: 207,944 | Gross: $37.41M
It was on Foxtel (i.e cable.) I'd seen it before. I love Pegg & Frost together, but without Edgar Wright something is obviously missing. As Pegg said time & again on the junkets for this, it was written for a larger, broader American audience in mind. Still, good cast all round with some fun moments in it.
3. Flypaper (2011)
Not Rated | 87 min | Comedy, Crime, Mystery
A man caught in the middle of two simultaneous robberies at the same bank desperately tries to protect the teller with whom he's secretly in love.
Votes: 29,074 | Gross: $0.00M
This movie suffers from the same condition as that Nicholas Cage movie Trespass, in that it felt like they needed to keep cramming plot twists in every 10 to 15 minutes in the hope that it would come off as clever. It didn't. Patrick Dempsey was kind of interesting as a character who was somewhere between Monk & Rain Man, actually this movie felt like an episode of Monk on drugs. Bad drugs. It had some funny lines though & Ashley Judd looked hot.
4. Starsky & Hutch (2004)
PG-13 | 101 min | Comedy, Crime
Two streetwise cops bust criminals in their red and white Ford Torino, with the help of a police snitch called "Huggy Bear".
Votes: 126,765 | Gross: $88.24M
Another one of those Foxtel afternoon movies that I watched because I couldn't be bothered doing anything else. Seen it a few times. Still holds up as pretty funny in a stupid kind of way.
5. All Good Things (2010)
R | 101 min | Crime, Drama, Mystery
Mr. David Marks was suspected but never tried for killing his wife Katie who disappeared in 1982, but the truth is eventually revealed.
Votes: 46,087 | Gross: $0.58M
Wasn't expecting much from this, so was pleasantly surprised. Surprisingly bizarre biopic of a never-proved murderer who happened to be heir of one of New Yorks largest real estate fortunes. Less said the better as his life takes an unexpected turn if you've never read about the case before, as I hadn't. Worth seeing.
6. Looper (2012)
R | 113 min | Action, Crime, Drama
In 2074, when the mob wants to get rid of someone, the target is sent into the past, where a hired gun awaits - someone like Joe - who one day learns the mob wants to 'close the loop' by sending back Joe's future self for assassination.
Votes: 469,847 | Gross: $66.49M
The first great movie that I saw this year. I wanted to love this before I watched it, and I did. There's only so much that needs to be said. This movie was *beep* cool.
7. Super Troopers (2001)
R | 100 min | Comedy, Crime, Mystery
Five Vermont state troopers, avid pranksters with a knack for screwing up, try to save their jobs and out-do the local police department by solving a crime.
Votes: 82,053 | Gross: $18.49M
I love this movie. I come back to it time & time again & the funny never fades. The Broken Lizard boys know how to make a fun movie & this is them at their charismatic best. They should have made a sequel to this.
8. Puddle Cruiser (1996)
R | 102 min | Comedy, Drama, Romance
A student falls in love with a fellow student who is defending his buddies in university court. He "proves his love" (more like his masculinity) to her by playing rugby against her ex-boyfriend.
The 1st movie the Broken Lizard boys ever did together. I only heard about this today. It's rough around the edges & has a mid-nineties Kevin Smith indie feel to it, but with I dare say fairly better production values than when Smith started out. It was good, not great, they were young guys sure, but it shows a lot of their potential. The 'legal' scenes were particularly funny. I wouldn't recommend it in general, more one for the comedy geeks.
9. Goon (2011)
R | 92 min | Comedy, Sport
Labeled an outcast by his brainy family, a bouncer overcomes long odds to lead a team of under performing misfits to semi-pro hockey glory, beating the crap out of everything that stands in his way.
Votes: 76,721 | Gross: $4.17M
My friend Shnapsy (not his real name) recommended this, and then I saw it on a list of 10 most underrated movies of 2012, so naturally I checked out. Good fun. Seann William Scott was great as the loveable dumb guy hired to smash dudes violently for an ice hockey team. Alison Pill was gorgeous as his super cute love interest. Liev Schrieber was so damn good as the retiring war horse of a hockey goon. Good hearted violent fun.
10. The Dark Knight Rises (2012)
PG-13 | 164 min | Action, Thriller
Eight years after the Joker's reign of anarchy, Batman, with the help of the enigmatic Catwoman, is forced from his exile to save Gotham City, now on the edge of total annihilation, from the brutal guerrilla terrorist Bane.
Votes: 1,277,947 | Gross: $448.14M
Maybe you heard of this one? Of course I was going to watch this again. In a non gay way Bane get's me hard. Like you don't know what I'm talking about.
11. Man on a Ledge (2012)
PG-13 | 102 min | Action, Adventure, Crime
As a police psychologist works to talk down an ex-con who is threatening to jump from a Manhattan hotel rooftop, the biggest diamond heist ever committed is in motion.
Votes: 132,242 | Gross: $18.62M
Watchable. Had a good cast, kept me interested the whole way through. I more or less guessed the 'twist' early on in the movie, but it didn't stop me from watching it. Interestingly the screenplay was written by the guy who (according to the interwebs) was Nicole Brown Simpson's neighbour, who initially testified against O.J Simpson but then later ghost wrote O.J's book in which he postulated how things would have been if he had in fact done the murder. Introduced me to Genesis Rodriugez who looks fantastic in lingerie. My girlfriend said something that stuck in my head, she said there was no real need for this movie to be made. Everything that was in it has all been done before. She's basically right unfortunately.
12. Club Dread (2004)
R | 104 min | Comedy, Horror, Mystery
When a serial killer interrupts the fun at the swanky Coconut Pete's Coconut Beach Resort--a hedonistic island paradise for swingers--it's up to the club's staff to stop the violence...or at least hide it.
Votes: 25,270 | Gross: $4.99M
Hungover so I watched this for the umpteenth time. It's not as good as Super Troopers, but it's still fun. Dumb fun really, perfect for when you don't feel like thinking too hard. The Broken Lizard guys really do bring a lot of comedic charm to everything they do.
13. Beerfest (2006)
R | 110 min | Comedy
Two brothers travel to Germany for Oktoberfest, only to stumble upon a secret, centuries-old competition described as a "Fight Club" with beer games.
Votes: 57,504 | Gross: $19.19M
Sometimes when you're having a crappy day & everything seems a bit crap with the world all you can do is put on another Broken Lizard movie & laugh at some dumb fun jokes.
14. Rubber (2010)
R | 82 min | Comedy, Horror
A homicidal car tire, discovering it has destructive psionic power, sets its sights on a desert town once a mysterious woman becomes its obsession.
Votes: 28,938 | Gross: $0.10M
Brilliant! Possibly the 1st of it's kind in a genre, the French/American absurdist postmodern art-house comedy horror genre? Definitely & genuinely unique, but also straight-up entertaining.
15. Salvation Boulevard (2011)
R | 96 min | Action, Comedy, Drama
Set in the world of mega-churches in which a former Deadhead-turned-born again-Christian finds himself on the run from fundamentalist members of his mega-church who will do anything to protect their larger-than-life pastor.
Votes: 4,028 | Gross: $0.03M
Not bad. A born again dead-head gets framed for a crime he didn't commit. Kind of a cross between a farce, a satire, and a thriller. I wouldn't say it's a must-see, but it had it's strengths. Having grown up with evangelicals I really appreciated the movies attention to detail in recreating the world of the modern church, while at the same time taking that and pushing it out into well deserved satire. The path Pierce Brosnan's character takes as the churches Pastor had some very funny, dark humour in it.
16. Pearl Jam Twenty (2011)
Not Rated | 109 min | Documentary, History, Music
A documentary on the band Pearl Jam that marks their 20th anniversary in the year 2011.
Votes: 7,035 | Gross: $0.45M
I love a good band or 'band scene' doco & this was one was pretty good. Sure, it's pretty trainspotterish but hey I listened to a fair bit of the band back in the 90's.
17. Unstoppable (2010)
PG-13 | 98 min | Action, Thriller
With an unmanned, half-mile-long freight train barreling toward a city, a veteran engineer and a young conductor race against the clock to prevent a catastrophe.
Votes: 162,887 | Gross: $81.56M
Fast-paced, impressive production & minimal commitment to character & backstory. Perfect for a lazy afternoon after working an early morning shift. Fun enough.
18. My Geisha (1962)
Not Rated | 119 min | Comedy, Drama, Romance
An actress disguises herself as a geisha in order to land the lead role in her director husband's film version of 'Madam Butterfly'.
I saw this many years ago as a teenager. It was a sunday afternoon movie on Tv that immediately got me hooked. For years I've wanted to see it again but until now didn't stumble across a copy of it, also I was worried it wouldn't be as good as I remembered. It was still good, I enjoyed watching it again, I remember as a teenager immediately falling in love with 60's Shirley Maclaine, and I remember why now. By todays standards this movie might have some trouble with the political-correctness police. It portrays a libidinous borderline rapey character as ultimately sweet & juvenile, it's portrayal of race in film is probably questionable and literally the movie ends on a message, the message being that a woman should put her husband before herself. Yet despite these, or for differing reasons, because of these things mentioned I would recommend this movie. A sentimental favourite for me.
19. Friday Night Lights (2004)
PG-13 | 118 min | Action, Drama, Sport
Based on H.G. Bissinger's book, which profiled the economically depressed town of Odessa, Texas and their heroic high school football team, The Permian High Panthers.
Votes: 51,089 | Gross: $61.19M
It's hard not to like a team sports movie. I didn't mind this at all. Not original in any sense though, had every typical dynamic you've ever seen in every football movie ever made up until now. So there's that.
20. Senna (2010)
PG-13 | 106 min | Documentary, Biography, Sport
A documentary on Brazilian Formula One racing driver Ayrton Senna, who won the F1 world championship three times before his death at age 34.
Votes: 50,365 | Gross: $1.61M
I've never had any interest in Formula One, so I approached this more from an interest in a doco that got a lot of buzz. What a story. Told entirely with archival footage. The epic sense of drama, hubris, passion & excitement that was Formula One and Ayrton Senna's life is told succinctly. He was a force of nature.
21. Assassination of a High School President (2008)
R | 93 min | Comedy, Crime, Mystery
At a Catholic high school, the popular girl teams up with a sophomore newspaper reporter to investigate a case of stolen SAT exams. Once the duo target their suspects, a larger conspiracy is unearthed.
This has got to be one of the most underrated movies of the last 5 years. Seriously, did this get any press at all? This was damn funny, one of those high school movies that transcends the genre, should have at least have been a cult hit. Clever, witty & absurd. Kind of a cross between 10 Things I Hate About You & Brick.
22. Wristcutters: A Love Story (2006)
R | 88 min | Comedy, Drama, Fantasy
A film set in a strange afterlife way station that has been reserved for people who have committed suicide.
Votes: 49,178 | Gross: $0.32M
A movie about what happens to ppl after they kill themselves. Very indie. So indie it had Shannyn Sossamon, Tom Waits & John Hawkes in it. Plus the lead guy was the kid from Almost Famous. I can't remember his name, I guess that movie made him almost famous. See what I did there? This for me was just straight up enjoyable & quirky. Very quirky.
23. Three Inches (2011 TV Movie)
87 min | Action, Drama, Sci-Fi
An average boy who resents his mundane life is struck by lightning during a particularly violent thunderstorm. When he recovers from the ordeal, he discovers that he has telekinetic powers.
The concept for this struck me as funny, a 'loser' who get's a loser superpower, the ability to move things with his mind by 3 inches. It was enjoyable enough. Made for Tv, with a Tv budget. It had Spike from Buffy in it. I haven't read anything about it but it felt like it was being shopped as a pilot for a potential Tv series. The thing I liked about it the most was that it made a good point of how with even a simple power like the hero has, you really could do a lot with it.
24. Vampire's Kiss (1988)
R | 103 min | Comedy, Horror
After an encounter with a neck-biter, a publishing executive thinks that he's turning into a vampire.
Votes: 10,709 | Gross: $0.73M
This was an experience! It was *beep* terrible, but *beep* amazing at the same time. Nicholas Cage gives the largest performance of his career, which is really saying something. The cinematography was beautiful, I mean this is a seriously good looking movie. Cage's performance ultimately encapsulates the full range, from the sublime to the ridiculous. Cage's final scene 'talking' to his shrink has got to be one of the greatest scenes i've ever seen in a movie. The problem is there's just too many things you could say about this.
25. Magic Mike (2012)
R | 110 min | Comedy, Drama
A male stripper teaches a younger performer how to party, pick up women, and make easy money.
Votes: 117,331 | Gross: $113.72M
Surprisingly pretty good. The trailer made it look like a chick flick with buff dudes thrown in, but it is a Soderbergh movie, so that usually means there's something a bit more going on. It had around the edges of it a gritty, indie, Saturday Night Fever feel to it, not as down & dirty & gritty as that movie necessarily, but I think it was coming from some sort of same spirit. Tatum & McConaughey were both charismatic. It kind of lacked any strong sense of story, kind of felt a bit like just a bunch of stuff that was happening, but I didn't really notice that until the 80th minute, so I think that counts as a positive. In the end it did wrap up as a structured story though, it just felt secondary to the fact that it was mostly about dudes stripping & partying & living their lives.
26. Johnny English Reborn (2011)
PG | 101 min | Action, Adventure, Comedy
Johnny English goes up against international assassins hunting down the Chinese premier.
Votes: 97,208 | Gross: $8.31M
I saw the 1st one so I knew what to expect. They're the english versions of the Naked Gun franchise basically. Sometimes you have a couple of hours to kill before work & you just want to watch something dumb & easy. It was likeable with a couple of funny running gags.
27. Django Unchained (2012)
R | 165 min | Drama, Western
With the help of a German bounty hunter, a freed slave sets out to rescue his wife from a brutal Mississippi plantation owner.

It was awesome. Had high expectations. Had a good time.
28. Seeking a Friend for the End of the World (2012)
R | 101 min | Adventure, Comedy, Drama
As an asteroid nears Earth, a man finds himself alone after his wife leaves in a panic. He decides to take a road trip to reunite with his high school sweetheart. Accompanying him is a neighbor who inadvertently puts a wrench in his plan.
Votes: 96,367 | Gross: $6.62M
I loved this. I think maybe I loved this more than Looper. It had a great blend of dark humour with an overly sentimentalised love story. Melancholia as a sweet comedy. I haven't truly enjoyed a rom-com for years, and I used to love the genre, so this was a great surprise. I even fell in love with Keira Knightley a little bit and usually I can't stand her, she's too skinny and does a lot of her acting with her chin, but she was great in this.
29. Fastest (2011)

Shot around the world in 2010 and 2011 and narrated by Ewan McGregor, 'Fastest' captures the intense and thrilling reality of the MotoGP World Championship, documenting a pivotal moment in ... See full summary »
Similar to the Senna documentary. Telling the story of Moto GP in the first decade of the 21st century. Captures all the drama, personalities & skill of one of the most difficult sports in the world.
30. The Pirates! Band of Misfits (2012)
PG | 88 min | Animation, Adventure, Comedy
Pirate Captain sets out on a mission to defeat his rivals Black Bellamy and Cutlass Liz for the Pirate of the year Award. The quest takes Captain and his crew from the shores of Blood Island to the foggy streets of Victorian London.
Votes: 39,331 | Gross: $31.05M
I love Aardman's Curse Of The Were-Rabbit. This was nowhere near the same calibre. Had some funny moments & some great voice talents. Biggest strike against it was casting Charles Darwin as a cowardly villain, biggest thing in it's favour was the 'parrot' Polly. Hard not to love Polly.
31. Your Sister's Sister (2011)
R | 90 min | Comedy, Drama
Iris invites her friend Jack to stay at her family's island getaway after the death of his brother. At their remote cabin, Jack's drunken encounter with Hannah, Iris' sister, kicks off a revealing stretch of days.
Votes: 23,542 | Gross: $1.57M
Very enjoyable. It had emotional stakes you could actually get involved in that seemed very real, it feels like I don't see that in movies as much these days. Great cast. I'm a Duplass fan from The League & how can you not be in love with Emily Blunt. Looked great. Shot perfectly & beautifully. Perfect ending, that's something else you don't get to say too often.
32. Vamps (2012)
PG-13 | 92 min | Comedy, Horror, Romance
Two female vampires in modern-day New York City are faced with daunting romantic possibilities.
Votes: 8,261 | Gross: $0.00M
This was a lot of fun. Obviously shot on a budget & so it's a little rough around the edges, but it was fun writing & Amy Heckerling has a knack for making likeable characters. Also Krysten Ritter is a goddess.
33. Mr. Nice (2010)
121 min | Biography, Comedy, Crime
The life story of Howard Marks, an elite British drug smuggler.
Another one shot on the cheap. I admire the directors attempt at trying to do something stylistically with this, but Howard Marks, either through Ifan's portrayal of him, or more likely just because of who he was, comes across as unlikeable to me. Instead of watching this just watch Blow again.
34. Safety Not Guaranteed (2012)
R | 86 min | Comedy, Drama, Romance
Three magazine employees head out on an assignment to interview a guy who placed a classified advertisement seeking a companion for time travel.
Votes: 107,590 | Gross: $4.01M
I loved this!. Quirky & fun.Plaza, Johnson & Duplass were a perfect cast.
35. Ruby Sparks (2012)
R | 104 min | Comedy, Drama, Fantasy
A novelist struggling with writer's block finds romance in a most unusual way: by creating a female character he thinks will love him, then willing her into existence.
Votes: 86,508 | Gross: $2.54M
Initially I wasn't too bothered about seeing this because of Paul Dano, who I've never really appreciated, but the trailer and the concept got under my skin and now I have to say, as it stands in Feb, this is probably my favourite movie of the year so far. I've always been a sucker for movies about writers. This is about a writer who manifests the 'perfect' girlfriend. Lot's of room for funny, clever humour. Written by & starring Zoe Kazan, who's clearly very gorgeous & talented. Her boyfriend is Paul Dano. That sucks, but hey he was great in this.
36. Friends with Kids (2011)
R | 107 min | Comedy, Drama, Romance
Two best friends decide to have a child together while keeping their relationship platonic, so they can avoid the toll kids can take on romantic relationships.
Votes: 38,060 | Gross: $7.25M
I liked this, maybe because I had fairly low expectations. It's good to see Adam Scott in stuff & Kristen Wiig in anything. It fell in a strange category, half way between honest adult comedy & sentimental rom-com.
37. Men in Black 3 (2012)
PG-13 | 106 min | Action, Adventure, Comedy
Agent J travels in time to M.I.B.'s early days in 1969 to stop an alien from assassinating his friend Agent K and changing history.
Votes: 287,211 | Gross: $179.02M
More entertaining than expected. Lots of cool fun side jokes. Do people say cool anymore? Everytime I use it in a sentence I feel like I'm using an out of fashion term. Anyway this had a lot of funny 60's references including a great bit from Bill Hader as Andy Warhol. Visually fun as well & Germaine what's-his-name from Flight Of The Conchords made a good villain. Couldn't remember a lot of what happened in it a week after I saw it, that always happens with me & these big popcorn movies.
38. Killing Them Softly (2012)
R | 97 min | Crime, Thriller
Jackie Cogan is an enforcer hired to restore order after three dumb guys rob a Mob protected card game, causing the local criminal economy to collapse.
Votes: 119,203 | Gross: $15.03M
God I was looking forward to this & Jesus it was *beep* terrible! Why was this movie *beep* made? If you're going to make a criminal underworld movie, don't think it's arty & clever to take out all the things that people like about these kind of movies & replace them with monotonous character dialogues. Ugh. Seriously, ugh.
39. The Devil's Double (2011)
R | 109 min | Biography, Drama, Thriller
A chilling vision of the House of Saddam Hussein comes to life through the eyes of the man who was forced to become the double of Hussein's sadistic son.
Votes: 56,524 | Gross: $1.36M
This had the potential to be a good movie, but it didn't hit the mark. What's interesting about this is it's based on a 'true story' that some journalists claim isn't in fact true at all. Exploring that angle would have been much more interesting, because something was definitely missing from this.
40. Side by Side (2012)
Not Rated | 99 min | Documentary
The documentary investigates the history, process and workflow of both digital and photochemical film creation.
Votes: 12,030 | Gross: $0.03M
I really enjoyed this. This is one of those doco's that I could gladly watch repeatedly. Keeanu Reeves taking a look at a moment in history, as cinema production changes forever. Some great interview subjects in this.

Bond's loyalty to M is tested when her past comes back to haunt her. When MI6 comes under attack, 007 must track down and destroy the threat, no matter how personal the cost.
Votes: 563,233 | Gross: $304.36M
I think I'll have to watch this again before I make any final judgements. I was looking forward to this because I grew up with Bond movies, but to me it didn't hit the mark. It looked amazing, seriously beautiful cinematography.
43. That's My Boy (2012)
R | 116 min | Comedy
While in his teens, Donny fathered a son, Todd, and raised him as a single parent up until Todd's eighteenth birthday. Now, after not seeing each other for years, Todd's world comes crashing down when Donny resurfaces just before Todd's wedding.

Samberg is great casting as Sandlers son. That said, this movie mostly sucked. Credit where credit is due, it did have funny moments.
44. Haywire (2011)
R | 93 min | Action, Thriller
A black ops super soldier seeks payback after she is betrayed and set up during a mission.
Votes: 76,121 | Gross: $18.94M
I failed to get the point of this, as in why it was made. I guess it was some sort of art-house/action mash up.
45. The Shock Doctrine (2009)
Not Rated | 79 min | Documentary
An investigation of "disaster capitalism", based on Naomi Klein's proposition that neo-liberal capitalism feeds on natural disasters, war and terror to establish its dominance.
Informative, and probably depressing.
46. Sound City (2013)
Not Rated | 107 min | Documentary, Music
A documentary on the fabled recording studio that was located in Van Nuys, California.
Votes: 10,859 | Gross: $0.42M
This was cool, but then it was about cool people talking about obscure bits of the history of cool. How was it not going to be cool? I'd recommend this to anyone.
47. Take This Waltz (2011)
R | 116 min | Comedy, Drama
A happily married woman falls for the artist who lives across the street.
Votes: 24,475 | Gross: $1.24M
This was a good movie. Not an easy movie to watch necessarily, but not all movies are meant to be. Michelle Williams as a hipster/bohemian who's dissatisfied with her life. Is she selfish, is she brave, is she both, or is she just lost? Not a date movie.
48. Soul Surfer (2011)
PG | 112 min | Biography, Drama, Family
Teenage surfer Bethany Hamilton overcomes the odds and her own fears of returning to the water after losing her left arm in a shark attack.
Votes: 38,884 | Gross: $43.85M
I started watching this ironically, and especially with all the christian themes I was looking to mock, but instead I ended up liking it. This is a true story for *beep* sake, this girl got her *beep* arm bitten off by a shark & went on to compete as a professional surfer. There's nothing to mock in that.
49. New Year's Eve (2011)
PG-13 | 113 min | Comedy, Romance

It's like I have amnesia, I watched this but nothing from it has stuck in my memory. Like a bland, watered down Love Actually.
50. Bernie (2011)

In small-town Texas, an affable mortician strikes up a friendship with a wealthy widow, though when she starts to become controlling, he goes to great lengths to separate himself from her grasp.
Votes: 50,878 | Gross: $9.20M
This was good. True story about a likeable guy in Texas who killed a woman & everybody still liked him. It was good to see Jack Black playing a little out of his usual 'zone.'
51. The Big Year (2011)
PG | 100 min | Comedy
Two bird enthusiasts try to defeat the cocky, cutthroat world record holder in a year-long bird-spotting competition.
Votes: 37,611 | Gross: $7.20M
I ended up really liking this. I had such low expectations. It was sentimental and mild, but it just worked. It made bird watching seem interesting.
52. Detention (2011)
R | 93 min | Comedy, Horror, Sci-Fi
As a copycat killer named after movie villain Cinderhella stalks the student body at Grizzly Lake High School, a group of co-eds band together to survive while serving detention.
This movie made me realise i'm old enough not to understand young people anymore. Or maybe I just don't understand ADHD? This was crazy, and non-sensical and yet I couldn't look away. Seriously though, i'm pretty sure this movie made no sense what so ever.
