An awesome and exciting action thriller that really has stand to be one of the greatest Summer blockbuster we had in a long time. Seriously I do think this is something special. I have seen this film four times and to me it does belong in my top 10 of Summer blockbuster. It is highly entertaining and filled with so much awesome scenes that I will continuously look back and see just how much fun you can have with a film like this. The third act does fall apart, at least to me, instead it keeps the momentum going with so much mystery to keep you on edge and does not let up. Again I will say that Tom Cruise will always be one of the greatest action movie stars with so much heart and passion that no matter what his personal views are he will always be one of my favorites. He is so bad ass in this film. 10/10

If you are not crying with in the first 10 minutes or even the last 5 minutes, then you are much stronger than me. This movie will grab your heart and will not let you go. The most well executed movie of this kind. This movie to me is as close to perfect you can get to a film. It has everything a film like this should have. A third act structure film with a beginning, middle, and end. With a lead that will be consider one of the best of the year. This is John Cho's film. Not only does he show the raw power of what a father is going through but also the pure insanity and 0 to 60 attitude he has that makes him so dedicated and frightening that you can't help but route for someone like this. 10/10

Brilliant. One word for this excellent profound picture. This is just an amazing film that has the best chemistry between two bros that have so much raw energy that it is almost impossible not to fall in love with this film. The direction, writing, editing, and acting is some of the best I have seen all year. A pleasant surprise that I had no idea I was going to love this film with so much passion.

Yes. Yes. Yes. Yes. Finally a horror film that made me cry. I cry a lot in films, but usually never horror films because sadness is something I don't usually feel. However I felt incredibly sad throughout the film. Not since The Babadook have a horror film made me feel so much for the main character to a point that it makes you cry. Sure horror films in the past made me care for the main characters. But there is so much emotion throughout this film that made me cry so much I thought I was watching Mary and Max. John Krasinski has made one of the best horror films of the decade. An outrageous thoughtful and creative film filled with taught and suspense that will leave you in a state of being apart of you. It Comes At Night, It, Raw, and so many other horror films have great acting, directing, and writing. A Quiet Place is among those great films and even when you leave this movie there is no telling how much this film will take you. I am in love with this movie so freaking much. 9/10

Holy crap! I am so glad I knew nothing going into this film. Because one of the purest moments of this movie is not knowing where the next scene is going to take you. Mainly because the film presents itself as a surface level revenge flick. But when Lynne Ramsay brilliant direction hits into high gear there is no turning back. This movie is excellent from beginning to end. The lead performance from Phoenix is nothing short of amazing. The song and score choices brings this movie to raw exhilaration of pain to a beautiful discover of emotion from all the performances. This movie is seriously genus and a modern filmmaker like Lynne Ramsay knocks out of the park again. Check this sh!t out as soon as you can. 9/10
17. A Prayer Before Dawn (2017)
R | 116 min | Action, Biography, Crime
The true story of an English boxer incarcerated in one of Thailand's most notorious prisons as he fights in Muay Thai tournaments to earn his freedom.
Amazing. Wow. This movie is pure brilliance from its cold opening to a heart warming ending that brings a much needed release of a combination of terror and tension to something is equally riveting and heartwarming. This movie is brutal and shot with so of the Paul Greengrass school of realism that it truly is an awesome movie of not only craftsmanship but also something filmmakers can't do and that is telling a story through almost complete silence. When I use awesome I am speaking film making wise. Some choices he takes are just flat out amazing and having real life former inmates play the supporting characters adds not only realism but also having Joe Cole surrounded people who have been through the same situation only adds more to his incredible performance. Excellent movie. 9.5/10
18. Deadpool 2 (2018)

I will try my best to not sound hyperbolic or even over selling this movie, BUT to me this is by far if not the best superhero movie of all time but to me it is my favorite. Holy shit this movie is insane and I love it. Only really two problems most of the jokes feel outdated which they could have been better and my other compliant is a selfish one that I just wished that it did set up what is coming next. But again that is a selfish reason. Anyway tho I am in love with this film so much because it is so funny and so extremely fun to watch Ryan Reynolds being this character throughout the whole film which it really did put a huge smile on my face just to see a blast of an actor take this role and make it his own. The whole cast deserves a round of applause because this film does not work unless the supporting players bring their A game. Which they did. Just try to understand when I say that this is the best superhero movie of all time comes down on my love of the character and action films. Action films like this are awesome and David Leitch also did an amazing job. The physical gags are beyond well thought out and when the awesome cameos happen it is beyond awesome. 10/10 again not perfect but I love this film so much.

What is there really to say. Seriously this is an awesome adventure full of surprises. Except let me say one thing:
THOR IS AWESOME. BEST SCENE IN THE WHOLE FILM. I LOVE THOR IN THIS MOVIE.
The action however is extremely well shot and camera work that is amazing to watch. This is an adrenaline thrill ride that is awesome and I can't wait to see the next film.
10/10- yeah I know it is not perfect but THOR, IRON-MAN, SPIDER-MAN, and DOCTOR STRANGE are all my MVPS. Then again Elizabeth Olsen is amazing she is becoming one of my favorite actresses today.

It is worth the wait. The movie has both amazing action and humor it will put anyone who watches this film in an amazing mood. By far one of Pixar's best films that they have done. And their best sequel since Toy Story 3. It is definitely a treasure to be hold. Which this film has an amazing opening action sequence that will blow you away of thinking what you can do with animation. When their isn't action there is hilarious humor throughout, when their isn't comedy then Brad Bird adds a little old fashion movie touch that we all know he loves and it makes this film so much better. 9/10

It doe have some missed opportunities especially for a rape revenge film. There is one rule you will always follow if you are doing a rape revenge film. But anyway this film rocks. Bloody, gory, balls to the wall fun with so much flare that is so reminisce of great debuts like Julia Ducournau's film from last year Raw. So much promise and great editing that this film has so much bad ass imagery that will leave you with a buzz. The director, the lead actress, and even the film itself is put together so professional that a genre lover like myself couldn't help but to love this crazy insane flick. 9/10
38. 6 Balloons (2018)
TV-MA | 74 min | Drama
A woman (Jacobson) learns her brother (Franco) has relapsed on heroin.
This is simplicity cinema at its finest. At only 75 minutes it is able to capture a terrific broken down relationship between a brother and sister so affectedly it leaves off screen. This movie may not hit the same way it did with me as others. But both the two primarily leads in this film are beyond extraordinary. This is how you make your typical drug addiction film into something special and different that it feels new and the direction and editing makes this an excellent and gripping watch. Even the pulse pounding score puts you in a trance that is so unpredictable that you will not be able to tell what is a flashback, flash forward, or a metaphor of a relationship between two siblings. It may not be as flashy or showy with its direction because it is super lowkey but that might be part of its charm. I love this film. 9/10
39. Disobedience (2017)
R | 114 min | Drama, Romance

Votes: 28,812 | Gross: $3.48M
I honestly didn't think I would like this movie as much as I did. Incredible acting from both the two leads, excellent direction from one of my favorite directors last year with his film A Fantastic Woman, and a story that engross me over the time developed between the two women. It is an incredible journey to watch. It may be dull for some people so I can kinda see that but to me the last half of this movie is what made me like it so much. Especially the two leads seriously I always knew Rachel McAdams and Weisz were incredible actors but this put them so far ahead of the game it will be criminal if they don't get any nominations. Which might happen because this is flying so under the radar. But I do love this movie so much. 9/10
40. Black Panther (2018)

Votes: 689,223 | Gross: $700.06M
This is an important movie. I know it is a comic book fun action film, however I think that Ryan Coogler and company have made some really interesting points we are seeing in today's world. With me being older to understand and recognize the importance of a filmmaker's intention to have something to say it is incredible to watch. Honestly I get it people don't want to politics in movies but to me as I got older I find those moments as a better way to watch any movie. No matter what this is one kick ass fun flick. The acting is great, the high octane action ramps up to a 11 for a pleasant viewing, and just like all the Marvel movies it is really funny. Go see Black Panther for not only the pure fun you get from watching these incredible actors, the direction being sharp, and the music is spot on. But go see it for the discussion that this movie will have. It makes points for us to talk about it so we can move on and learn from the past. Or maybe you don't care so. 9/10

This was actually more funnier than I thought it would be. I am a huge Wes Anderson fan and I do find most of his films really funny. But to me this film is the funniest he has done. I laugh so hard and often and a big reason is because the actors are so straight face and take this job so seriously it is so much fun movie to watch these cute dogs be really rough and tough. I thought these dogs that used to be house pets are now on their own. Which now are being guided through a dog like Chief. This movie is really funny and has a lot of great stuff in this movie. Which it is a great film that has so much character depth with these incredible characters and so much heart. I do really like this film so much and I love Japanese culture type of films that this film borrows heavily but it does have a lead character who is Japanese who is featured heavily and is not in the back ground. This is his movie and his story. It is a great film. 9/10
