I tried. I really did. But the pacing was way too slow and I hated how they killed off a major character off screen. There's stuff i like in it (Bardem) but this just wasn't for me

Two astronauts work together to survive after an accident leaves them stranded in space.
Votes: 768,732 | Gross: $274.09M
The 7 I gave this back in the day was generous. Nothing inherently wrong with it but its basically an excersize in special effects with no substance
R | 119 min | Comedy, Drama
A washed-up superhero actor attempts to revive his fading career by writing, directing, and starring in a Broadway production.
Votes: 579,791 | Gross: $42.34M
Its fine enough but incredibly full of itself and gets very pretentious towards the end. The one take gimmick is cool but just as much of a gimmick as Boyhoods 12 years to make thing (honestly I prefer Boyhood)
5. The Wolf of Wall Street (2013)
R | 180 min | Biography, Crime, Drama
Based on the true story of Jordan Belfort, from his rise to a wealthy stock-broker living the high life to his fall involving crime, corruption and the federal government.
Votes: 1,185,311 | Gross: $116.90M
The filmmaking is fantastic as is normally with Scorsese but it was just way too excessive for me. This was a solid 2.5 hour movie stretched to 3 hours of a horrible person doing horrible things. I adore Scorseses work but this is easily his weakest movie for me
6. Call Me by Your Name (2017)
R | 132 min | Drama, Romance
In 1980s Italy, romance blossoms between a seventeen-year-old student and the older man hired as his father's research assistant.
Votes: 212,143 | Gross: $18.10M
I hate this so much! Aside from the cinematography and decent song I struggle to like anything. The romance between Chalamet and this old dude is creepy, the peach scene is gross and the ending pissed me off. If you want a good film featuring LGBTQ+ themes watch Moonlight instead
7. Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (2018)
PG | 117 min | Animation, Action, Adventure
Teen Miles Morales becomes the Spider-Man of his universe, and must join with five spider-powered individuals from other dimensions to stop a threat for all realities.
Votes: 374,076 | Gross: $190.24M
I friend of mine despised this movie. Whilst I don't despise it, I think its incredibly overrated. Its pacing is too fast, never connected to any of the major characters, there are way too many side characters and I don't like the hip hop soundtrack. What saves it is the mindblowing animation, voice acting work and the heart behind. I think its OK overall, not amazing though
8. Captain America: Civil War (2016)
PG-13 | 147 min | Action, Adventure, Sci-Fi
Political involvement in the Avengers' affairs causes a rift between Captain America and Iron Man.
Votes: 662,920 | Gross: $408.08M
Its OK and the airport scene was cool but it is not a 10/10 masterpiece like some think. Its so generic, corporate and souless, the villain is rubbish and the ending is really sudden. And Spiderman and Antman were clearly thrown in last moment. Meh, fun in the moment, nothing to remember afterwards
9. Iron Man 2 (2010)
PG-13 | 124 min | Action, Adventure, Sci-Fi
With the world now aware of his identity as Iron Man, Tony Stark must contend with both his declining health and a vengeful mad man with ties to his father's legacy.
Votes: 721,758 | Gross: $312.43M
A terrible corporate advert for the Avengers that people forgave coz they like Iron Man. The 2 villains suck and barely anything happens till the last 20 minutes where it turns into a dumb video game. Black Widow is overly sexualised and not a character and we have a scene of Iron Man pissing in his suit. The worst MCU movie by a mile
10. Guardians of the Galaxy (2014)
PG-13 | 121 min | Action, Adventure, Comedy
A group of intergalactic criminals must pull together to stop a fanatical warrior with plans to purge the universe.
Votes: 1,042,707 | Gross: $333.18M
Surprisingly dull for me. The characters felt very interchangable, the villain was rubbish and I never got the sense of fun everyone else did. I actually thought Vol 2 did everything that people seemed to see in this one. But I guess thats just me and my weird opinions
11. Uncut Gems (2019)
R | 135 min | Crime, Drama, Thriller
With his debts mounting and angry collectors closing in, a fast-talking New York City jeweler risks everything in hope of staying afloat and alive.
Sandler was good in it but no one else really stuck out, its incredibly predictable and everyone yelling at each other all the time was more irritating than a panic attack experience as others seem to get
12. Early Man (2018)
PG | 89 min | Animation, Adventure, Comedy
Set at the dawn of time, when prehistoric creatures and woolly mammoths roamed the earth, Early Man tells the story of Dug, along with sidekick Hognob as they unite his tribe against a mighty enemy Lord Nooth and his Bronze Age City to save their home.
Votes: 19,792 | Gross: $8.27M
I like Aardman but this was boring. The worst Aardman movie yet.
13. Cars 2 (2011)
G | 106 min | Animation, Adventure, Comedy
Star race car Lightning McQueen and his pal Mater head overseas to compete in the World Grand Prix race. But the road to the championship becomes rocky as Mater gets caught up in an intriguing adventure of his own: international espionage.
Votes: 160,956 | Gross: $191.45M
Now for the other way round ones people hate that I like. Cars 2 is bonkers, badly paced and all over the place but if you turn your brain off for an hour and a half its a lot of fun. Its more the Room of Pixar than the Gigli of Pixar
14. Madagascar (2005)
PG | 86 min | Animation, Adventure, Comedy
A group of animals who have spent all their life in a New York zoo end up in the jungles of Madagascar, and must adjust to living in the wild.
Votes: 366,725 | Gross: $193.60M
Call it childhood nostalgia but I like this one a lot. It has flaws and is a bit aimless in its second half but I find it funny and charming
