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 Justine 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. It is awesome seeing a film like this in this day in age that will have a gut wrench of a punch that you will have to see to believe. 9/10

Votes: 60,751 | Gross: $2.52M

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

Votes: 262,206 | Gross: $188.02M

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

Director: Jean-Stéphane Sauvaire | Stars: Joe Cole, Pornchanok Mabklang, Panya Yimmumphai, Vithaya Pansringarm

Votes: 12,394

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

Votes: 337,227 | Gross: $324.57M

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:


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

Votes: 22,994 | Gross: $0.10M

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

22. 6 Balloons (2018)

74 min | Drama

66 Metascore

A woman (Jacobson) learns her brother (Franco) has relapsed on heroin.

Director: Marja-Lewis Ryan | Stars: Abbi Jacobson, Dave Franco, Charlotte Carel, Madeline Carel

Votes: 2,677

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

23. Disobedience (2017)

R | 114 min | Drama, Romance

74 Metascore

A woman returns to her Orthodox Jewish community that shunned her for her attraction to a female childhood friend. Once back, their passions reignite as they explore the boundaries of faith and sexuality.

Director: Sebastián Lelio | Stars: Rachel Weisz, Rachel McAdams, Alessandro Nivola, Anton Lesser

Votes: 15,564 | 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

24. Black Panther (2018)

PG-13 | 134 min | Action, Adventure, Sci-Fi

88 Metascore

Director: Ryan Coogler | Stars: Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong'o, Danai Gurira

Votes: 446,413 | 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

25. Isle of Dogs (2018)

PG-13 | 101 min | Animation, Adventure, Comedy

82 Metascore

Set in Japan, Isle of Dogs follows a boy's odyssey in search of his lost dog.

Director: Wes Anderson | Stars: Bryan Cranston, Koyu Rankin, Edward Norton, Bob Balaban

Votes: 91,178 | Gross: $32.02M

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

Director: Steven Spielberg | Stars: Tye Sheridan, Olivia Cooke, Ben Mendelsohn, Lena Waithe

Votes: 268,777 | Gross: $137.69M

I am not a child of the 80's. Or even a nostalgic individual who can understand every reference. But I do love movies of the 80's and music of the 80's this movie is a perfect balance of 80's action and today's shock and awe that today audiences are craving for. This movie has an excellent opening action sequence that it puts this movie in the mood that is missing from the MCU. The tone is taken serious and the situation that our lead character is in we can not take our eyes off the screen. This movie is so much fun and excellent source of adrenaline filled non stop adventure. My only complaint is with Wade's relatives not being part of his story as much as it is in the book. Because you need that emotional impact in the movie. This movie did the book justice for me. I love it. 9/10

A woman filming a documentary on childhood rape victims starts to question the nature of her childhood relationship with her riding instructor and running coach.

Director: Jennifer Fox | Stars: Elizabeth Debicki, Laura Dern, Common, Ellen Burstyn

Votes: 8,599

Laura Dern is amazing in this film. She is an actress who actually has gotten better films and roles later in her life and this is just another example of that. A movie that does handle some serious topics dealing with victims and their issues coming to the realization years later. This is a very interesting and a very good intimate film that tells it story in a very close to the heart to the director. Which makes this story so dense and helps connecting the story to the characters. 9/10

34. Game Night (I) (2018)

R | 100 min | Action, Comedy, Crime

66 Metascore

A group of friends who meet regularly for game nights find themselves entangled in a real-life mystery when the shady brother of one of them is seemingly kidnapped by dangerous gangsters.

Directors: John Francis Daley, Jonathan Goldstein | Stars: Jason Bateman, Rachel McAdams, Kyle Chandler, Sharon Horgan

Votes: 144,754 | Gross: $69.00M

I have always love to see Jason Bateman in comedies. But this is pretty different. I have died laughing multiple times because this is ensemble comedy that works on all levels. Sure do all the jokes work out, no. Also the climax fails and fall into that same stupid ending that we got this cameo to be the villain just to be in it for five minutes to not basically do anything. However this movie is hilarious from beginning to end because the script keeps moving, the characters have at least one or two moments that will keep you laughing. I am in love with this movie, as a comedy, because this movie nails but it is not just funny but some of the techniques actual work and this movie is really cool, the score amps of the action to add real terror. I can't believe I'm saying this. Go see Game Night for the fun you can be having. I had a blast. 9/10

35. Halloween (I) (2018)

36. Annihilation (2018)

R | 115 min | Adventure, Drama, Horror

79 Metascore

Director: Alex Garland | Stars: Natalie Portman, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Tessa Thompson, Benedict Wong

Votes: 203,882 | Gross: $32.73M

Annihilation is a fantastic looking and beautiful movie. It is well put together (at times) and along with Alex Garland's last movie Ex Machina I just don't think he is the best with actors. Some actors in this are really good but some of the performances are either not written really well or directed really well. The ending tho is better than the ending of Ex Machina. I understood what happened and can see what Alex had intended what he had in mind for Portman's character because there is so much care for her and Portman gives it her all. But this movie does fall flat in some aspects. So while I am not in love with this movie, I think the science fiction elements work really well. But the human aspects in the beginning is just a slog to get through and so predictable. The acting is pretty bad in some characters and the writing is so repetitive. But it is so weird that the second half of this movie is pretty awesome. So go see it and make your own mind. 8.3/10

Director: Ari Aster | Stars: Toni Collette, Milly Shapiro, Gabriel Byrne, Alex Wolff

Votes: 124,469 | Gross: $44.07M

I do like this movie so much. Almost love because this is beautifully acted, directed, edited, along with incredible cinematographer. But never was I scared in the last 20 minutes as much compared to the first hour and 40 minutes. Because so much of this film is so intensely taunt and creepy. Hereditary not the movie the pure meaning of the word existence in this film but in a very predictable way with so much style it can distract some people from what is actually happening. Which is where I think people are overreacting and saying that this is the scariest movie of all time. But. But to me because this movie since the beginning I thought this movie was all in accident and was left by how much fault lies within this family. 1.) The tragic backstory of Toni Collette's mother side is all messed up and now that falls on her being the last of her side putting so much of that on her own children. And again to me that is much more terrifying living with someone who made it their point of live to protect and now at the dinner table Toni is so much in charged with having no answers with what is wrong with her family and herself. To me those it does fall apart in a bad way towards the end. Again so much of this movie gets so right. This movie does rock for a long time.

But make no mistake this is a cult film. In more ways than one. It is just disguised as a family drama that then led into a horror film where I thought that this family just has bad luck because that is how life is. Life will be unfair and have things taken away from you. Actually tho even from the opening shot and Toni Collete's profession everything is manipulated. Which I thought all that came from your family linage. Because we weep what we sow. And everything I have watched people are saying that this demon god was in their family heritage already. But then why have a cult the cult was invited to me to bring in this sucker of a family because that is what cults do. They sucker in family and members that are so vulnerable they will ride them out till they die. And guess what this film can be viewed in so many ways but sadly I don't care to see this film again the same way I don't want to see mother!, Rosemary's Baby and The Witch. These horror movies do have incredibly well made moments however by the end are totally left unanswered with just so much realism that by the end it just says it was all an act. Which It Comes at Night did play with the audience but at least it stuck with the realism of being untrustworthy and everything is an accident and put upon the characters fault. Which makes so much irony in what Toni Collette says at the dinner table and maybe intentional that no one takes responsibilities for her actions which is why she thinks she is the only one that she can cure this curse put upon her family led by her mother. But again she fails but not because it is just in her family. It is because of this God of mischievous that puts upon this family. And that is something I have a problem with. 8/10

This is just a plan fun and exciting film that holds so much of 80's horror cinema in its hand it bleeds through the screen. This film is awesome and the problems in this film are their with some performances but overall I still think this is Claire Foy having a ball in this film. Just like Natalie Dormer with In Darkness Claire is totally just a staple of her being a star. If The Crown didn't already. 8.3/10

This is a blast of a film. Incredible. One word can do this film justice because I had so much fun in the theater watching this kick ass science fiction bold action film. There are some performances again are kinda terrible the villains and even some of the supporting players are not the best. But this is Logan Marshall-Green's best performance up to date. He blows up with so much excitement throughout the film. The direction is perfectly shot movie with camera work that I adore. The camera is not on a tripod and it moves through the movie with so much awesome creativity it explodes on screen. Even the revenge genre has been done to death and this is pretty up their. 8/10

It is an extremely funny and fun time at the movies. First the trio of parents and daughters play well with each other and have a bond that is fresh and enjoyable from start to finish. Comedies can be complete missteps from bad jokes, bad direction, to just unbelievable circumstances that are not funny at all. To me this movie is a perfect blend of miking reality with comedy. Look this is obviously fiction and crazy stuff is going to happen because the script does work towards the chemistry of these characters and not much the full length and well developed script. But I really don't care. And you know what there is depth though in this film. Ike Barinholtz's story and even his daughter are the best in this movie hands down. Even Ike Barinholtz who has real dramatic moments is touching and it will make you understand where he is coming from as a father. And again I'm a 21 year old male who doesn't have kids and didn't go to prom. But all the performances are hilarious and some characters have more depth than others. This is however still a real funny movie and it will make you feel good by the end. 8/10

Both Ana and Olivia did an amazing job here controlling their scenes with very bleak and darkly comedic writing while making them seem realistic. The two of them have incredible chemistry and great back and forth while never feeling bored. I know some may have felt that this film felt more like a stage play which can happen. To me I thought the dialogue is really well done and never lets you go. But all that can feel bland and stale because this is just a real dark tone with serious dark undertones of feeling depressed and alone. Along with plotting to kill someone is not entirely fun. HOWEVER this film would not work if it wasn't for an actor who left us to soon. Anton Yelchin. He is beyond fantastic in this film and he absolutely steals the show. From his incredible work in numerous movies he really does show that an actor like himself had so much talent that directors would love to have. 8/10

For Anton Yelchin.
