These are my top 5 movies, I gotta say:

  1. Blade Runner. Just an absolutely perfect movie, IMO. Script is ridiculously good, acting's fantastic, multilayered plot that leaves a lot to the imagination without seeming overly-obtuse. I love that it lets you interpret events in your own way, too (IMO, Deckard's a replicant). As a mishmash of two of my favorite genres - science fiction and film noir - this is obviously a perfect movie for me. Make sure you watch the Director's Cut, though.
  2. The Big Lebowski. The Coen Brothers are my favorite directors, and this is my favorite of their movies. It's a perfect "smart" comedy, which relies on very intelligent, dialogue-based humor - perhaps my favorite kind of humor - mixed with absurdity and comedic genre-bending, and extremely memorable characters, that just makes it the perfect comedy. The Dude Abides.
  3. Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back. I've loved Star Wars with a passion since I was a little kid, and I always thought this was by far the best one. The duel between Vader and Luke is a highlight, as is the thrilling asteroid chase or the final run through Cloud City, and the slower moments in between never feel boring due to a great script and acting. The greatest part of the movie - and of the series, and perhaps even the science fiction genre - is, of course, the Battle of mother!@#$ing Hoth. I could watch that every day and never get bored.
  4. The Good, The Bad and the Ugly. I already mentioned two of my favorite genres were scifi and noir, and here's my other favorite - a Western. I'll admit, when I first watched this I was just 5 and I thought it was boring as hell. But I didn't like Westerns then. I watched it again when I was 12, though, and ever since it's been one of my favorite movies. A combination of directing and music are what comes together and makes it truly incredible.
  5. Inglourious Basterds. Sometimes I get flak for putting this above Pulp Fiction or Reservoir Dogs as my favorite Tarantino movie, but I really feel like this is the best one. It has the perfect blend of humor, drama and dialogue of any of his movies, and truly memorable characters. What seals it is the awesome character of Colonel Hans Landa - an extremely well-crafted villain, and the first time I've actually thought that a character who was an amoral, pitiless Nazi ruler was actually "cool", if not necessarily sympathetic.

With all the hype of my friends, "I"m going to see it again and again.", I'm more like eh, it was ok and went back to watching Ready Player One.

I Robot 6/10

 

I watched this again yesterday with the wife, i think it is a worthwhile action movie at the peak of Will Smith's career. Nothing too spectacular, but if you like Action with some Sci-fi, it is one to watch.

Widows 6.25/10

 

Drama/Thriller, not my usual genre. I guess it was worth the watch, did not totally fall asleep. There was quite a lot of relatively high profile male actors in this film, but none of them had really prominent roles, the 3 main actresses were the main focus of the film.

Fast and Furious: Hobbs and Shaw , would give it a 7 out of 10. How do you get from street racing to that?

Hobbs and Shaw 7/10

 

I watched this at the movies last weekend. My personal opinion is that from a pure action stand point, it is about as good as it gets, with arguably the best two action hero's out there at the moment both participating. The scenes were over the top, but this was expected for a Fast and Furious film.
