Votes: 855,927 | Gross: $74.28M

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

2. Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind (1984)

Princess Mononoke but with Sci-Fi Elements. And Dull

3. Gravity (2013)

Two astronauts work together to survive after an accident leaves them stranded in space.

Director: Alfonso Cuarón | Stars: Sandra Bullock, George Clooney, Ed Harris, Orto Ignatiussen

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

4. Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance) (2014)

R | 119 min | Comedy, Drama

87 Metascore

A washed-up superhero actor attempts to revive his fading career by writing, directing, and starring in a Broadway production.

Director: Alejandro G. Iñárritu | Stars: Michael Keaton, Zach Galifianakis, Edward Norton, Andrea Riseborough

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

75 Metascore

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.

Director: Martin Scorsese | Stars: Leonardo DiCaprio, Jonah Hill, Margot Robbie, Matthew McConaughey

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

93 Metascore

In 1980s Italy, romance blossoms between a seventeen-year-old student and the older man hired as his father's research assistant.

Director: Luca Guadagnino | Stars: Armie Hammer, Timothée Chalamet, Michael Stuhlbarg, Amira Casar

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

87 Metascore

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.

Directors: Bob Persichetti, Peter Ramsey, Rodney Rothman | Stars: Shameik Moore, Jake Johnson, Hailee Steinfeld, Mahershala Ali

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

75 Metascore

Political involvement in the Avengers' affairs causes a rift between Captain America and Iron Man.

Directors: Anthony Russo, Joe Russo | Stars: Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Sebastian Stan

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

57 Metascore

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.

Director: Jon Favreau | Stars: Robert Downey Jr., Mickey Rourke, Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle

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

76 Metascore

A group of intergalactic criminals must pull together to stop a fanatical warrior with plans to purge the universe.

Director: James Gunn | Stars: Chris Pratt, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Zoe Saldana

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

91 Metascore

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.

Directors: Benny Safdie, Josh Safdie | Stars: Adam Sandler, Julia Fox, Idina Menzel, Mesfin Lamengo

Votes: 219,753

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

68 Metascore

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.

Director: Nick Park | Stars: Eddie Redmayne, Tom Hiddleston, Maisie Williams, Timothy Spall

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

57 Metascore

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.

Directors: John Lasseter, Bradford Lewis | Stars: Owen Wilson, Larry the Cable Guy, Michael Caine, Emily Mortimer

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

57 Metascore

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.

Directors: Eric Darnell, Tom McGrath | Stars: Chris Rock, Ben Stiller, David Schwimmer, Jada Pinkett Smith

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
