Lists by tom314
As we are now just over half way through the year and into Blockbuster time, this is my list of the bottom films of the year. I do actually consider all from no. 16 to no.20 to all be good films. They only make it as it's all films I've seen this year in descending order.
For this list I have chosen films which focus on war directly and not necessarily films set during war. So films such as Casablanca and The Good, The Bad and The Ugly will not feature.
Everyone seems to think that found footage films are something new and a fresh way to make a horror film. In just about every horror film produced since 2007 there have been some elements of the sub-genre. Found footage films have been around since about 1980, with Cannibal Holocaust being possibly the first, and they have never gone away. The Blair Witch was the first mainstream successful film, but since Paranormal Activity it has become a craze.
FFF's = Found Footage Films
As it's the 50th anniversary of a British and Global screen icon, along with Skyfall's release on the 26th, it seems only fitting to produce this list. I'll update it after seeing Skyfall.
Arthouse is probably the most difficult genre to define. Each person sees it differently depending on various reasons. For this list I have chosen films which I consider to be 'arthouse' mainly due to the cinematography or near poetic nature.
The films on this list will be evaluated based on how good of a sci-fi film they are, not favourite film which happen to be sci-fi films. As a result the order will be different from my top 50 films of all time.
With Star Wars VII set for a 2015 release and directed by JJ Abrams, I decided to upload my list of the best Star Wars films. Im only counting Episodes I - VI and Im sure it's the same as everyone else's list.
