I am only going to judge the movies that I have seen this year that have been released this year.



Batman vs Superman



Overall this movie was just too much, it was too much brooding and drama. These movies are supposed to be engaging superheroes movies not a Terrance Mallick film. I feel like Zach Snyder is far too heavy handed to make a truly enjoyable movie that doesn’t feel so heavy.


Lawrence Fishburne, Amy Adams , Diane Lane, Holly Hunter and Jeremy Irons were all very good as they always are but they were extremely underutilized. Holly and Jeremy are Oscar winners and the other three have all been nominated … use them more … they are that good.



Ok bitching aside things I enjoyed about the movie were the visuals.. this movie could be watched without words and still be as good as it is. I loved the sets, costumes lighting, score.. etc. I also loved Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor was a great villain and he was able to make the movie feel enjoyable and fun. Ben Affleck as batman was surprising good, I didn’t know what to expect after seeing Christian Bale in that role for so long, but Affleck did a very good job and I look forward to his standalone movies.


But the single best thing about Batman v Superman was WONDER WOMAN!!!! Gal Gadot was amazing, her on screen time was the most exciting and energetic parts of the whole film. I wish that same energy given to her was given to the rest of the film , she was able to be sexy , fun and kick major ass without being mopey and sullen like the other two were for the majority of the film.


Number 9




This movie barley edged out Batman and Superman by being unique and really funny. Ryan Reynolds is freaking hysterical in this movie. Lelsie Uggams, Morena Baccarin and T.J. Miller all are very good additions to the cast.



This movie was action packed, gross and really enjoyable. While it won’t be one of my favorite superhero movies of all time I think it’s a really unique take on the regular superhero movies.


The best part of the movie was whole bit with the tiny hand. #dying #tinyhands



Number 8

Zoolander 2



This movie was ridiculous, I can’t believe how dumb it was , but damn did I laugh through the whole thing. It was hysterical to me, the amount of stupidity between Hans and Derek and how they play off each other just kills me. Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson are prefect together and really do make me laugh with their stupid characters


Will Ferrell, Kirsten Wiig , Penelope Cruz, Kiefer Sutherland, Benedict Cumberbatch, all are hysterical. Super fun to see all the crazy cameos in the movie Anna Wintour, Marc Jacobs, tommy Hilfiger , Sting, Katy Perry, Justin Bieber , Naomi Campbell, Susan Sarandon, Ariana Grande , Christine Taylor, Billy Zane , Milla Jovovich and FREAKING Valentino !!!


The movie was completely insane and I truly enjoyed myself.

Number 7

My Big Fat Greek wedding 2



I really wish this movie had been made years ago, I forgot how much I loved being in this family. While this movie is nothing original or even that new it was warm and fun. I enjoyed the funny antics of the characters and enjoyed seeing their growth since the first film.


All the main cast is back in their original roles. Andrea Martin as Aunt Voula is still my favorite. Toula played by Nia Vardalos and Ian played by John Corbett seemed a little too mopey and I could have done without their relationships struggles because it didn’t bring anything to the movie. I really loved seeing grandma get some funny bits.


Number 6

Neighbors 2



The Sequel to Neighbors doesn’t change that much from the first movie, but it’s still freaking hysterical. Seth Rogan and Rose Byrne both continue to grow as adult and parents as they battle a new sorority that moves in next door. Zac Efron is there to be shirtless and funny. This movie had its fair share of gross out gaga and really funny moment while also having a great story about parenting and learning how to be a better one. I don’t think they can keep making more but I did enjoy this one.


Best Scene is the whole chase scene at the tailgate party … so funny



Bonus good scene is seeing Pete played by Dave Franco get engaged.


Number 5

Captain America: Civil War


Overall I enjoyed this movie and was pleased by this addition to eh mcu . positives all the actors did well, great to see Scarlett witch, Black widow, Cap, Iron man, Falcon, Vision all get some good moments and the actors are all really great. The stunts, the visuals, the costumes, score and everything is technically on point. The new additions to the cast were the best for sure, Ant-Man, Spider-Man and Black Panther were all amazing and really ended up being the best part of the whole film for sure. And the entire fight scene in the airport was spectacular.

The problem I have with the whole thing is that I think I’m experience a lot of fatigue from these people, I enjoy the movies but I wish they would spend more time making them and work on making them better, to be fair this was one of the better ones but, I’m struggling to stay excited for new one.


Number 4

X-men Apocalypse


Now even though I might be tiring of the MCU I am not beginning to tire of the X-Men universe, I don’t know why I always enjoy them so much but I do.  I know these movies are technically considered not the best adaptions of the original comics, but I freaking love.


I have always loved the X-Men way more than any other superheroes. I loved seeing all the young kids in the movie playing some of my favorite characters. Jean Grey, Cyclops, Night crawler, Strom , Angel, apocalypse and Psycloke   were all awesome to meet and see some more of their origins.

Mystique, Charles, Erick, Quicksilver, Beast, Havoc, Moria were all very good and enjoyable in their roles. Sad to think about more x-men movies without Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy and Nicholas Hoult.

The look, style, fight scenes and the whole style of the film was great, I enjoyed it overall and had a great time watching. Not the best movie ever made but really enjoyable for me.


Number 3

The Boss




I don’t care what kind of movie she is in or what it’s about I fucking love it. She is the funniest person in the movies today and I don’t think you can tell me otherwise. This movie was original and hysterical. Melissa plays a con woman who get out of jail and uses her business prowess to assist a group of brownies to dominate the brownie selling business.


So many jokes and so many funny gags, I laughed throughout the whole thing. Kristen Bell and Peter Dinklage were both great. Peters samurai was so freaking hysterical.


Great movie and I can’t wait to see her next movie


Number 2

The Jungle Book


What a beautiful movie, this movie was mazing and beautiful and engaging and funny. This film was breathtaking. The cast Ben Kingsley, Idris Elba, Scarlett Johansson, Lupita Nyong’o, Bill Murray, Christopher Walken were all perfectly cast in this movie.

The whole story was beautifully made a was simply engrossing. I loved seeing the story retold and not taking away from the original animated film. The Animation of the animals was amazing and they were so beautiful created one could believe they were real.

The New little boy they cast as Mowgli, Neel Sethi was a great little actor and did a fantastic job with all the cgi work.


The Best part of the movie was King Louie, while he is my favorite of the first movie it was great to see him in all his glory in the new movie. He was so big and so cool, the entire sequence was amazing and I truly loved the whole movie.


Number 1



This movie was adorable, loved the whole thing. A completely original movie and such a cute story Judy Hopps is the cutest thing ever in her tiny police uniform. Nick and Judy work together to solve a mystery about who in Zootopia is turning the predators into the bad guys.

Every part of his movie was cute and so well made, the entire story with the shrew and his daughter was completely great.

I love a good animated movie and this movie really was great. Jason Bateman and Gennifer Goodwin were great Together and were able to make there character’s loveable and real.


Jenny Slate, Idris Elba, J.K. Simmons, Shakira, Tommy Chong and Octavia Spenser all added to their own characters and make the whole movie a funny, sweet little movie that was truly great to watch.

What are some of your favorite films throughout this year? What’s are your thoughts on my lists ?

James Bond: For your eyes Only, Octopussy, A View to a Kill

These past few weeks I have had a bit of a Roger Moore kick and blew out these three mid eighties flicks

For your Eyes Only
Staring Roger Moore, Carole Bouquet, Topol, Lynn Holly Johnson and Julian Glover

This one revolves around the mysterious murder of a Greek family and their daughters hunt for revenge. mix in an under age figure skater trying to bed bond and some pretty smooth crossbow skills and it a interesting flick. by no means the best but fine none the less.

Staring Roger Moore, Maud Adams, Louis Jourdan, Kristina Wayborn and Kabir Bedi revolving around a Faberge egg and a group of Indian Ninja women led by Maud Adams (the hottie from man with the golden gun ) This film is ludacris but its fun that way and probably will make it higher on the list just for being a funny mess.

A View to a Kill
Starring Roger Moore, Tanya Roberts, Grace Jones and Christopher Walken

Christoper Walken plays a crazy man trying to blow up silicon valley his Hench-woman May Day played by the beautiful Grace Jones provides some of the most hysterical sequences ever. Tanya Roberts stars as the WORST bond girl ever , a useless pile of screaming crap. fun movie made worse by Tanya and her Screaming but Grace is a Joy :).

What a crazy hot mess this movie is, its campy fun and inaaproprite throughout .

Movies update

I have been watching allot of movies lately and thought I would share what I thought about them, some are old some are new but they were movies I had never seen for one reason of another.

I will give movies a 1-5 rating five being the best

Antichrist- 4.5
Directed by Lars von Trier and staring: Willem Dafoe and Charlotte Gainsbourg
This movie is the craziest thing i have ever seen in my life , its about a couple who’s son dies . they are both struggling with their emotions and how to deal with the death of their son. Charlotte is absolutely AMAZING as the woman who is having the worst time of it.
I don’t know what demons Lars has inside his head but makes on hell of a scary movie. I don’t think i have been more creeped / freaked out by everything in this movie . its filled with beautiful , scary and unique scenes that make it the whole film impact you in a very emotional way. I would recommend seeing it but only if you can handle some freaky crap .

The Professional -3.5
Director: Luc Besson, Staring: Jean Reno, Gary Oldman and Natalie Portman
This was a good movie but not as awesome as I thought it would have been considering all the hype i have heard about it over the years.

Ammores Perros 3
Director: Alejandro González Iñárritu Staring: Emilio Echevarría, Gael García Bernal and Goya Toledo
SUCH a sad, sad, sad movie . lots of dogs dying lots of me crying good movie but sad

Super 8-4.5
Director: J.J. Abrams
Writer: J.J. Abrams, Staring: Elle Fanning, Amanda Michalka and Kyle Chandler
WHAT an AWESOME MOVIE , I have not been so completely engrossed in a movie in a long time , it was amazing. made me want to be a child again.

Gone in Sixty Seconds-2
Director: Dominic Sena, Stars: Nicolas Cage, Angelina Jolie and Giovanni Ribisi, Robert Duvall, Timmothy Olyphant and Chi McBride
Stupid movie cool cars

Bad Santa-2
Director: Terry Zwigoff, Stars: Billy Bob Thornton, Bernie Mac and Lauren Graham
Dumb movie but I laughed my ass off

Ringu – 1
Director: Hideo Nakata,Stars: Nanako Matsushima, Miki Nakatani and Yûko Takeuchi
The Original RING movie , its more boring that the English one and did not have any or the jump or creep that Ju-on had.

Tampopo – 1
Director: Jûzô Itami, Stars: Ken Watanabe, Tsutomu Yamazaki and Nobuko Miyamoto
This has got to be the craziest movie EVER , its about some lady with a noddle shop whose story is somewhat entertaining . The rest of the 16 hour movie is filled with weird people and stories that make no sense.

Drive -5
Director: Nicolas Winding Refn, Stars: Ryan Gosling, Carey Mulligan and Bryan Cranston
Fantastic movie about a wheel man in LA , the score, the actors , the city ALL AMAZING. this is the movie to beat in my eyes absolutely AMAZING. Ryan Gosling is awesome, Albert Brooks is crazy evil . Its like watching a beautiful painting violently explode in front of you. PREFECTION

The Ides of March -3
Directed by George Clooney Staring- Ryan Gosling, George Clooney,Philip Seymour Hoffman,Paul Giamatti,Evan Rachel Wood,Marisa Tomei,Jeffrey Wright,Max Minghella and Jennifer Ehle
UHHHHHHHHH let me down , i was expecting the movie of the year and i got a decent movie . you have an amazing director , and some of the worlds best actors. WHY did we not utilize them ? why was Marisa Tomei only given 15 lines and where was Jennifer Ehle ( awesome in Contagion) I enjoyed this movie but it was not what i had envisioned or wanted.
