165 Toy Story 4 (2019) Dec 29 2019 -
166 Sicario (2015) Jan 05 2020 Great thriller movie, but the lesson here is so bleak 5.0
167 Paprika (2006) Jan 08 2020 Colorful, vivid and great animation but so so bizaare 4.0
168 Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance) (2014) Jan 08 2020 Insanely good, I can see why it won best picture 5.0
169 Looper (2012) Jan 09 2020 Entertaining enough, but raises so many time travel questions 4.0
170 John Wick 2 (2017) Jan 12 2020 Better than I expected 5.0
171 Ad Astra (2019) Jan 13 2020 Kinda draggy 3.5
172 Klaus (2019) Jan 13 2020 Surprisingly good. Fantastic animation 5.0
173 Marriage Story (2019) Jan 14 2020 Great performances. Ma didn't like the ending. 5.0
174 Fist of Fury (1972) Jan 14 2020 Great fight scenes. Actually a bit more plot than I expected 5.0
175 Coming to America (1988) Jan 15 2020 I had low expectations, but it was better than I thought it would be. Ma would like it! 3.5
176 MIB International (2019) Jan 15 2020 Kind of predictable 3.0
177 Batman vs TMNT (2019) Jan 16 2020 Ridiculous, but fun. Good for kids. 4.0
178 6 Underground (2019) Jan 17 2020 The editing and scene transitions were all over the place. A very Michael Bay film. 3.5
179 The Wolf of Wall Street (2013) Jan 18 2020 This movie does nothing to improve my opinion of modern capitalism. 4.5
180 Parasite (2019) Jan 19 2020 Really good, but IDK how to begin to describe it. Worth overcoming the 1 inch subtitle barrier for. 5.0
181 Kiki's Delivery Service (1989) Feb 04 2020 Very light-hearted and idyllic. At first it felt a bit boring, but it had me smiling by the end. 5.0
182 Uncut Gems (2019) Feb 07 2020 Sandler gave a good performance, but I struggled to get through the early parts of the movies because his character and situation are so unrelatable to me personally. 4.0
183 Knives Out (2019) Feb 09 2020 A fantastic murder mystery, maybe the best I've ever seen, great performances all around. 5.0
184 Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World (2003) Feb 10 2020 Watched this because a redditor said ROTK robbed it of best picture in 2003. This is a great war movie, but he was wrong 5.0
185 Jojo Rabbit (2019) Feb 11 2020 Best movie about a Nazi ever. Most colorful depiction of Nazi Germany. Fantastic movie. 5.0
186 Superman: Red Son (2020) Feb 27 2020 An acceptable adaptation of one of my favorite Superman stories. Minus points for not including the "House of L" epilogue. 4.0
187 Coach Carter (2005) Feb 27 2020 I watched this because I saw it in a "top inspirational speeches" YT video. Pretty good sports movie. 4.0
188 Billy Madison (1995) Mar 23 2020 Watched this so I know the context of the "I award you no points and may god have mercy on your soul" clip. Typical early Sandler movie. 3.0
189 Princess Mononoke (1997) Mar 23 2020 Much more action-packed than the last Ghibli movie I watched. Beautifully animated. 5.0
190 Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) (2017) Mar 25 2020 Spoiler-free review -
191 Logan Lucky (2017) Mar 25 2020 Fun heist movie, but I find it hard to take the characters seriously. Might be some anti-redneck bias. 4.0
192 The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (2012) Mar 30 2020 See below 4.0
193 The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug (2013) Apr 07 2020 See below 4.0
194 Project 88: Back to the Future Too (2020) Apr 10 2020 Fantastic fan-made shot-by-shot recreation of Back to the Future II, put together during quarantine, w/ stop motion, kids, sock puppets, bananas, potatoes and much more! 5.0
195 The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies (2014) Apr 10 2020 This trilogy had far too many extra things that weren't in the books, but it was pretty good. I rank them Desolation > Five Armies > Journey. 4.0
196 The Departed (2006) Apr 10 2020 This was intense. I liked it more than Goodfellas. 5.0
197 Spirited Away (2001) Apr 15 2020 Shades of Alice in Wonderland and The Wizard of Oz. Easily the best Ghibli film I've watched so far. 5.0
198 Psych the Movie (2017) May 03 2020 It's like an extended episode of Psych! 4.0
199 Ready Player One (2018) May 05 2020 A predictable yet fun romp. 4.0
200 The Siege (1998) May 05 2020 Caught this on Cinemax when I went down for lunch. Much too idealistic in hindsight, given what happened in New York 3 years after this film released. 3.0
201 Kong: Skull Island (2017) May 07 2020 Exciting popcorn movie. 4.0
202 Ang Huling El Bimbo: The Musical (2019) May 08 2020 Ok, so this one isn't really a movie. The appeal for me is mostly the music and the nostalgia. The plot was serviceable, though some may find it problematic. 4.0
203 Justice League Dark: Apokolips War (2020) May 15 2020 This was great, and appropriatly dark. Good send-off for the DCAMU. 4.0
204 Zombieland Double Tap (2019) May 27 2020 A fun romp, but pretty much more of the same. 3.0
205 Sonic the Hedgehog (2019) Jun 27 2020 Fun with Ben Schwartz, but James Marsden's character is kinda dumb. Needs a lot of suspension of disbelief. 3.0
206 Mission Impossible Fallout (2018) Jun 29 2020 Good watch, it's MI, you know how it goes. Maybe 40% of it is Tom Cruise running. 3.0
207 Atomic Blonde (2017) Jul 11 2020 I came in thinking it was a John Wick style action movie. True, but it's also a Cold War spy thriller. Nice twists, but might be a bit hard to follow near the end. 3.0
208 The Old Guard (2020) Jul 12 2020 Didn't know what to expect, never read the Greg Rucka graphic novel on which it was based. Action-packed, fun watch. 4.0
209 Superman Man of Tomorrow (2020) Aug 28 2020 Not too good. Weird animation. Writing all over the place. 3.0
210 Bill and Ted Face the Music (2020) Aug 29 2020 A most excellent sequel, echoing the earlier two movies. A midlife crisis journey full of heart and time travel nonsense. Little Billie and Theda are great! 5.0
211 Enola Holmes (2020) Sep 27 2020 It's okay. Basically young adult/Nancy Drew Sherlock Holmes, with a bit of feminism thrown in. Mycroft annoying as usual. 3.0
212 Girl Next Door (2004) Oct 31 2020 -
213 Wonder Woman 1984 (2020) Dec 30 2020 There's a bunch of things that don't make sense (even accounting for myths etc), but it helps to think this movie takes place pre-crisis. 3.0
214 The Godfather (1972) Jan 15 2021 Everyone is so young! Such a well-told gangster tale. Looking forward to the sequel -
215 The Godfather Part II (1974) Jan 16 2021 This is two movies rolled into one. Still pretty good, but I think I liked the singular focus of the first one more. -
216 World War Z (2013) Jan 21 2021 Pretty typical action movie I think, entertaining enough. Should have watched at the start of the pandemic. -
217 Space Sweepers (2021) Feb 22 2021 Korean sci-fi. Fun ride, fairly entertaining, pretty good setpieces and special effects, kind of predictable. 3.0
218 Once Upon A Time In Hollywood (2019) Feb 28 2021 -
219 Dr No (1962) Mar 10 2021 First James Bond movie! 4.0
220 To Russia With Love (1963) Mar 11 2021 This one actually had more bits that felt like actual espionage. 4.0
221 Goldfinger (1964) Mar 15 2021 Lot of the classic Bond tropes introduced. 4.0
222 Thunderball (1965) Mar 19 2021 Least favorite so far. Too many boring/confusing underwater parts. 3.0
223 Zack Snyder's Justice League (2021) Mar 23 2021 Longer but better version of the theatricul release 4.0
224 You Only Live Twice (1967) Mar 24 2021 Such Japan, much wow. Secret volcano lair! 4.0
