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.




This post was written before i had watched The Conjuring 2, Now you see me 2 and Finding Dory




A drama centered on three people who are haunted by mortality in different ways. George (Damon) is a blue-collar American who has a special connection to the afterlife. On the other side of the world, Marie (de France), a French journalist, has a near-death experience that shakes her reality. And when Marcus (Frankie/George McLaren), a London schoolboy, loses the person closest to him, he desperately needs answers. Each on a path in search of the truth, their lives will intersect, forever changed by what they believe might-or must-exist in the hereafter. Written by Warner Bros. Pictures

Hereafter is Clint Eastwoods newest movie, written by Peter Morgan (The Queen , The Last king of Scotland , Frost/ Nixon and the Other Boleyn Girl). The Film Stars Cécile De France, Matt Damon, Jay Mohr , Richard kind , Frankie and George McLaren and Bryce Dallas Howard.

Now I have been the biggest Clint Eastwood fan Since Million Dollar baby and have fallen in love with each of his films. This film is no exception, it starts out with a bang and you slowly meet all your three main characters and see how they are touched by death

SPOILER ALERT …………………………..
Cécile De France plays a French journalist who is in the Thailand or somewhere close, she goes out one morning to buy some presents and a tsunami hits . this is one of the most spectacular scenes in the whole film and I am very excited to watch it again in slow motion once I buy the film . she experiences a near death occurrence including the white light and seeing other people who have died. Matt Damon stars as a ex psychic who has given up talking to the dead because he does not know how to cope . he starts the film with one last job set up for him by his brother . Frankie and George play twin brother who rely on each other for everything because there mother is a alcoholic . One of the boys is killed and the other is complete lost.
Throughout the film these three continually look for answers and reasons as to what lies after you die. The stories intertwine and the characters end up helping each other work through their problems .
I loved this movie I thought it was an amazing movie with some amazing performances including Damon and De France . the film does not give you any answer as to what lies beyond death but I makes you think about what you believe and what you believe will happen after you die.
