Date Watched: 1st January 2020 My Rating: 5/5

What a way to get started for the new decade. One of Clint Eastwood's best ever films, possibly his best, which gave Westerns a contemplative and more realistic edge.

One of the most wholesome and cutest films I've ever seen, and now my favourite Miyazaki film.

R | 107 min | Comedy, Crime

66 Metascore

Votes: 506,986 | Gross: $3.90M

Date Watched: 2nd January 2020 My Rating: 4/5

A fun debut from Guy Ritchie, which showcases some of the best of his early trademarks - and also some very 90s attitudes towards minorities.

4. Frances Ha (2012)

R | 86 min | Comedy, Drama, Romance

82 Metascore

A New York woman (who doesn't really have an apartment) apprentices for a dance company (though she's not really a dancer) and throws herself headlong into her dreams, even as the possibility of realizing them dwindles.

A spirited comedy-drama from Noah Baumbach, showcasing the quintessential Greta Gerwig performance.

5. The Gentlemen (2019)

R | 113 min | Action, Crime

51 Metascore

Director: Guy Ritchie | Stars: Matthew McConaughey, Charlie Hunnam, Michelle Dockery, Jeremy Strong

Votes: 9,433

Date Watched: 3rd January 2020 My Rating: 2/5

It's good to see Guy Ritchie go back to his roots, but The Gentlemen is far too unfocused for its own good, and downright offensive and unpleasant.

6. Little Women (1994)

PG | 115 min | Drama, Family, Romance

87 Metascore

The March sisters live and grow in post-Civil War America.

Director: Gillian Armstrong | Stars: Susan Sarandon, Winona Ryder, Kirsten Dunst, Claire Danes

Votes: 46,942 | Gross: $50.08M

A solid adaptation of the novel, although I think the Greta Gerwig version may have spoiled me in comparison.

Votes: 348,821 | Gross: $51.97M

Date Watched: 4th January 2020 My Rating: 5/5

A mesmerising fictional account of Mozart and Salieri, and one of the finest costume dramas ever made.

8. 6 Underground (2019)

R | 128 min | Action, Adventure, Comedy

41 Metascore

Meet a new kind of action hero. Six untraceable agents, totally off the grid. They've buried their pasts so they can change the future.

Date Watched: 5th January 2020 My Rating: 1/5

The most Michael Bay film Michael Bay has ever made, though this isn't exactly a good thing.

R | 130 min | Crime, Drama

79 Metascore

In the slums of Rio, two kids' paths diverge as one struggles to become a photographer and the other a kingpin.

Date Watched: 5th January 2020 My Rating: 5/5

A deeply harrowing, yet also hugely energetic crime saga, City of God is an utter masterpiece.

10. Jarhead (2005)

Votes: 165,748 | Gross: $62.66M

Date Watched: 6th January 2020 My Rating: 4.5/5

Probably Sam Mendes' most underrated film, Jarhead takes a unique approach to the psychology of war films, with a powerhouse performance from Jake Gyllenhaal and stunning cinematography to boot.

11. Sunset Blvd. (1950)

Not Rated | 110 min | Drama, Film-Noir

A screenwriter develops a dangerous relationship with a faded film star determined to make a triumphant return.

Director: Billy Wilder | Stars: William Holden, Gloria Swanson, Erich von Stroheim, Nancy Olson

Votes: 186,830

Date Watched: 6th January 2020 My Rating: 5/5

Perfection. Absolute perfection. Gloria Swanson as Norma Desmond gives one of the greatest performances of all time.

12. Dogtooth (2009)

Not Rated | 97 min | Drama, Thriller

73 Metascore

Three teenagers live isolated, without leaving their house, because their over-protective parents say they can only leave when their dogtooth falls out.

Director: Yorgos Lanthimos | Stars: Christos Stergioglou, Michele Valley, Angeliki Papoulia, Hristos Passalis

Votes: 73,241 | Gross: $0.11M

Date Watched: 7th January 2020 My Rating: 4/5

Equal parts strange and fascinating, Dogtooth is difficult to swallow, but for those aware of Yorgos Lanthimos' signature off-kilter style, it's compelling viewing.

13. Bad Boys (1995)

R | 119 min | Action, Comedy, Crime

41 Metascore

Two hip detectives protect a witness to a murder while investigating a case of stolen heroin from the evidence storage room from their police precinct.

Votes: 218,275 | Gross: $65.81M

Date Watched: 7th January 2020 My Rating: 3/5

Will Smith and Martin Lawrence's chemistry has aged considerably well. However, most of Bad Boys hasn't, though it does make for an entertaining time capsule, and an interesting beginning for Michael Bay.

14. Bombshell (2019)

R | 109 min | Biography, Drama

64 Metascore

A group of women take on Fox News head Roger Ailes and the toxic atmosphere he presided over at the network.

Director: Jay Roach | Stars: Charlize Theron, Nicole Kidman, Margot Robbie, John Lithgow

Votes: 18,859

Date Watched: 7th January 2020 My Rating: 4/5

Though not quite as incendiary as it hopes to be, Bombshell is a mostly enthralling look at the downfall of Roger Ailes, with powerful performances from Charlize Theron and Nicole Kidman.

15. Rust and Bone (2012)

R | 120 min | Drama, Romance

73 Metascore

Put in charge of his young son, Alain leaves Belgium for Antibes to live with his sister and her husband as a family. Alain's bond with Stephanie, a killer whale trainer, grows deeper after Stephanie suffers a horrible accident.

Votes: 60,448 | Gross: $2.06M

Date Watched: 8th January 2020 My Rating: 4.5/5

A powerful, heartbreaking and life-affirming drama, Rust and Bone is stunning filmmaking from Jacques Audiard, with some of Marion Cotillard and Matthias Schoenaerts's best work.

16. The Rock (1996)

R | 136 min | Action, Adventure, Thriller

58 Metascore

A mild-mannered chemist and an ex-con must lead the counterstrike when a rogue group of military men, led by a renegade general, threaten a nerve gas attack from Alcatraz against San Francisco.

Director: Michael Bay | Stars: Sean Connery, Nicolas Cage, Ed Harris, John Spencer

Votes: 299,954 | Gross: $134.07M

Date Watched: 8th January 2020 My Rating: 4/5

For all of Michael Bay's faults as a director, The Rock is a genuinely great slice of fun 90s action, with the awesome pairing of Nicolas Cage and Sean Connery.

17. The Look of Silence (2014)

PG-13 | 103 min | Documentary, Biography, History

92 Metascore

A family that survived the genocide in Indonesia confronts the men who killed one of their brothers.

Director: Joshua Oppenheimer | Stars: Adi Rukun, M.Y. Basrun, Amir Hasan, Inong

Votes: 10,713 | Gross: $0.11M

Date Watched: 9th January 2020 My Rating: 4/5

A fascinating documentary about the Indonesian genocide, though I wonder if I'd have appreciated it more if I'd known to watch The Act of Killing first.

18. Just Mercy (2019)

PG-13 | 137 min | Drama

68 Metascore

World-renowned civil rights defense attorney Bryan Stevenson works to free a wrongly condemned death row prisoner.

Director: Destin Daniel Cretton | Stars: Brie Larson, Michael B. Jordan, Jamie Foxx, O'Shea Jackson Jr.

Votes: 5,186

Date Watched: 9th January 2020 My Rating: 4.5/5

A brilliantly understated legal drama, Just Mercy is a wonderful film about a good man striving to do the right thing, with powerful performances from Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Foxx.

19. 1917 (2019)

R | 119 min | Drama, War

78 Metascore

Director: Sam Mendes | Stars: Dean-Charles Chapman, George MacKay, Daniel Mays, Colin Firth

Votes: 82,934

Date Watched: 10th January 2020 My Rating: 4.5/5

An utterly barnstorming and overwhelming cinematic experience, 1917 is Sam Mendes firing on all cylinders to deliver masterful and transcendant filmmaking.

20. Bad Boys II (2003)

R | 147 min | Action, Comedy, Crime

38 Metascore

Two loose-cannon narcotics cops investigate the flow of Ecstasy into Florida from a Cuban drug cartel.

Director: Michael Bay | Stars: Will Smith, Martin Lawrence, Gabrielle Union, Jordi Mollà

Votes: 214,888 | Gross: $138.61M

Date Watched: 11th January 2020 My Rating: 1.5/5

Even despite my lukewarm response to the first Bad Boys, it's leagues above its first sequel. You can see a lot of the problems that would later be repeated in Michael Bay's Transformers films, like the overlong runtime, and the wholly unnecessary animal sex.

21. Days of Heaven (1978)

PG | 94 min | Drama, Romance

93 Metascore

A hot-tempered farm laborer convinces the woman he loves to marry their rich but dying boss so that they can have a claim to his fortune.

Director: John Ford | Stars: John Wayne, Jeffrey Hunter, Vera Miles, Ward Bond

Votes: 75,423

Date Watched: 12th January 2020 My Rating: 4.5/5

Though I'm personally not much of a fan of John Wayne and find his delivery a bit stiff, The Searchers is an awesome Western, with absolutely gorgeous cinematography.

23. Wild Strawberries (1957)

Not Rated | 91 min | Drama, Romance

After living a life marked by coldness, an aging professor is forced to confront the emptiness of his existence.

Director: Ingmar Bergman | Stars: Victor Sjöström, Bibi Andersson, Ingrid Thulin, Gunnar Björnstrand

Votes: 87,732

Date Watched: 13th January 2020 My Rating: 5/5

This was my first exposure to Ingmar Bergman and what a film to start with. Reflective and often beautiful, Wild Strawberries is tremendous viewing.

24. Breakthrough (I) (2019)

PG | 116 min | Biography, Drama

46 Metascore

When her 14-year-old son drowns in a lake, a faithful mother prays for him to come back from the brink of death and be healed.

Director: Roxann Dawson | Stars: Marcel Ruiz, Topher Grace, Sarah Constible, Dennis Haysbert

Votes: 5,734 | Gross: $40.71M

Date Watched: 14th January 2020 My Rating: 1/5

Breakthrough is absolutely dreadful, and seems to exist for the sole purpose of serving as Christian preaching material. Unfortunately, there's not a good film attached to it.

25. Million Dollar Baby (2004)

PG-13 | 132 min | Drama, Sport

86 Metascore

A determined woman works with a hardened boxing trainer to become a professional.

Director: Clint Eastwood | Stars: Hilary Swank, Clint Eastwood, Morgan Freeman, Jay Baruchel

Votes: 603,197 | Gross: $100.49M

Date Watched: 14th January 2020 My Rating: 5/5

An extremely compelling boxing drama with stunning performances, Million Dollar Baby is now my favourite Clint Eastwood film.

26. Richard Jewell (2019)

R | 131 min | Biography, Crime, Drama

69 Metascore

American security guard Richard Jewell saves thousands of lives from an exploding bomb at the 1996 Olympics, but is vilified by journalists and the press who falsely reported that he was a terrorist.

Director: Clint Eastwood | Stars: Paul Walter Hauser, Sam Rockwell, Brandon Stanley, Ryan Boz

Votes: 11,526

Date Watched: 14th January 2020 My Rating: 3/5

Richard Jewell has mostly honourable intentions and some terrific performances, but I didn't find it particularly involving to watch, and the way it inaccurately and damagingly depicts Kathy Scruggs made me uncomfortable.

27. The Graduate (1967)

PG | 106 min | Comedy, Drama, Romance

83 Metascore

A disillusioned college graduate finds himself torn between his older lover and her daughter.

Director: Mike Nichols | Stars: Dustin Hoffman, Anne Bancroft, Katharine Ross, William Daniels

Votes: 243,615 | Gross: $104.95M

Votes: 116,421 | Gross: $57.50M

Date Watched: 16th January 2020 My Rating: 5/5

What a debut from John Singleton. Boyz n the Hood is a brilliantly told coming-of-age story with an affecting depiction of the struggles of growing up African-American.

29. Mean Streets (1973)

R | 112 min | Crime, Drama, Thriller

96 Metascore

A small-time hood aspires to work his way up the ranks of a local mob.

Director: Martin Scorsese | Stars: Robert De Niro, Harvey Keitel, David Proval, Amy Robinson

Votes: 91,259 | Gross: $3.13M

Date Watched: 16th January 2020 My Rating: 4/5

As Martin Scorsese's first collaboration with Robert De Niro, you can a lot of the elements that would inform his later work. It's a good story that's brilliantly shot, but watching it now, I didn't particularly like Charlie, especially his social attitudes.

30. Bad Boys for Life (2020)

R | 124 min | Action, Comedy, Crime

59 Metascore

The Bad Boys Mike Lowrey and Marcus Burnett are back together for one last ride in the highly anticipated Bad Boys for Life.

Directors: Adil El Arbi, Bilall Fallah | Stars: Will Smith, Martin Lawrence, Vanessa Hudgens, Alexander Ludwig

Votes: 15,936

Date Watched: 18th January 2020 My Rating: 3.5/5

Bad Boys for Life was nowhere near as bad as I expected, as the removal of Michael Bay has allowed the franchise to gain some self-awareness and shed most of its toxic masculinity.

31. Metropolis (1927)

Not Rated | 153 min | Drama, Sci-Fi

98 Metascore

In a futuristic city sharply divided between the working class and the city planners, the son of the city's mastermind falls in love with a working class prophet who predicts the coming of a savior to mediate their differences.

Votes: 150,013 | Gross: $1.24M

Date Watched: 19th January 2020 My Rating: 5/5

A true landmark of cinema, Metropolis is one of the most impressive films of the silent era and an influential stepping stone for sci-fi.

32. The Grey (2011)

R | 117 min | Action, Adventure, Drama

64 Metascore

After their plane crashes in Alaska, six oil workers are led by a skilled huntsman to survival, but a pack of merciless wolves haunts their every step.
