1.Redcon-1 - This has Impact wrestlings Katarina it is nothing special overall but is well worth it for the lead who before this I never heard of or seen but after this I wanna see what else they have done , I would reccomend it for the leads performance and not much else it is a surprisingly better movie than you would expect starring an impact wrestling star though.
2. Intensive Care -- Nothing special gets a little comedic by the end strangely 3. Bad kids go to hell -- Unofortunate I have never seen this ever talked about because I have watched this a few times and everytime I enjoy it alot more , it is described in the perfect way by a reviewer ...breakfast club meets the grudge ...I have never read the comic myself but the movie is an overlooked gem and Augie Duke kills it in this movie
4.Monster Party -- I am not sure how to describe this one...no shortage of Gore for the Gorehounds but the story is kind of all over the place and then kind of devolves into just something I guess depending on your perspective after the first kill is when things ramp up and taste may vary ..some may just find it fun others may just find it non senseacle , I wont find myself going back to this but for a one time watch it was satisfactory.
5.DEATH HOUSE -- I am gonna put this as lightly as I can....THIS MOVIE f***ING SUCKS!!! ...the only good thing in this were the gore effects that is it...because when you look up this movie and you see the cast list..you are sure to have an immediate horror movie boner because now you are thinking how insane this movie could be.....now lower your expectations to about nothing because for all the potential this movie had....it lives up to none of it....oh and then there is final act of this movie.....WTF and not even WTF in what kind twist was that no this is the WTF I want those minutes back because porn makes more sense....as a horror movie fan this is nothing but an insult avoid this unless u come across it changing the channel.
6. Suspiria 2018 - I enjoyed the Argento original and this one was just as enjoyable IMO great performances it definetly is not for everyone , there are similarities but enough to differentiate it from the original what I loved most about it though were the moments where they were paying homage to the original with certain ways they framed and shot scenes in ways films no longer use and it was great.
7. Hotel Artemis - An enjoyable watch it is nothing special but it is fun when it finally gets to the fun stuff and that is weakness of this movie it spends ALOT of its running time setting up everything....and then finally in about the final 20min of the movie do you finally get to the preverbial dynamite going off after all the set up and as it is getting fun...it ends so yet again a movie with far more potential than it lives up to.....and Sofia Boutella marry me please
8. Killers Within - A neat little horror movie again like a continued pattern nothing special but it is not terrible...but it is a little different in the land of zombies , ghosts and other paranormal horror so it has that going for it and sadly not much else this is something u watch if u come cross it again nothing special but not the worst thing in the world
9. POLAR -- How can I sum this movie up except...MADS MIKKELSON IS A BADASS THAT EVEN JOHN WICK WOULDN'T DARE f*** WITH......take that how you will but this movie was absoloutley fantastic and far far FAR more brutal and viseral with the violence than u would think going into this for the first time but this movie also feels like two movies mashed the f*** together....and it should not work but it works brilliantly because the villans in this movie are so f***ing cartoony you are asking youself what movie did these f***ers come from because in contrast to Mads you are just like...WTF but again it works but also let me say that Mads performance is not the only strong performance as Vanessa Hudgens puts in an amazing performance because from the minute you meet here you feel this tradgedy and pain she is holding it is a very real grounded performance ...it is the brash loud cartoony villans vs the very real and grounded protagonists and again it just works..fantastic direction , production if you have enjoyed Mads in anything else.whethere it be Casino Royale , Dr Strange you owe to yourself to watch this movie IMO it is that great a movie.....oh and one more thing I know so many people have fantasy casted a Metal Gear Solid movie ..........well your casting can end right here because I will definitively say that there is no one more suited than Mads Mikkelson for the role of Big Boss and after u watch this you will no doubt agree with me.
10. The Cabin - After coming off my previous movie I was really feeling good about picking out something.......no no this movie f***ing sucks it is a horror / suspense it has no plot and the actions of the protagonists are nothing but stupid choice after stupid choice and this is made all the more baffling after they make really smart choices....this is beyond amateurish on a story telling level this is the movie where someone with next to money went....I need 1 location and the minimilist ammount of people and that is what this is and let them get chased around , there is no explanation as to who the killer is why they do what they do or who the hell the supposed heroes of this movie are suppose to be or why they are doing what they are doing......again this movie f***ing sucks avoid at all costs save your time for something no doubt better

1. Overboard - the remake, just felt a bit flat. Anna Faris is often very likable but it's just not a film that did much for me. 2. Mary Shelley - tricky to watch with a completely open mind when you are familiar the subject of a biographical movie, it wasn't bad but you feel like it could be more. Elle Fanning did a good job as Shelley, Maisie Williams I wish was in it more. 3. The Internship - I have seen this before and wasn't my choice to rewatch it, but you know it's a film I thought I remembered better but didn't remember that much of it all, like the Will Ferrell cameo. Hey it's Good Eleanor from The Good Place! 4. A Wrinkle In Time - did nothing for me, I hate to pick on a young persons performance but was Levi Miller performance meant to be so wooden? 5. Meet The Hollowheads - a film from 1989 starring John Glover and Juliette Lewis I was unfamiliar with, but I enjoyed, the creature effects and things like that where great, and rare to hear Bobcat Goldthwait speak with a normal voice in a film in the 80s (Goonies' Anne Ramsey was unintelligible though) 6. Kingpin - Has been a very long time since I've seen this (maybe over 15 years) but still a very funny movie, perhaps in some ways the most underappreciated Farrelly Brothers movie. 7. Half Magic - not necessarily a great movie but the 3 female leads, Heather Graham, Angela Kinsey and Stephanie Beatriz (who I'm crushing on) have pretty great chemistry, and it just breezes by, so I do put t8his in the like column. 8. A League Of Their Own - if there is one thing I learnt from this movie that there is no crying in baseball, it's been a long time since I last saw this movie and it's still an highly entertaining moment, there is one scene that still gets me which I won't spoil if you've never seen it. 9. Life Itself - okay, there was a good film in there and it had its moments, but it's helluva depressing, and you can tell Dan Fogelman was in love with own dialogue, wish a early scene which included a cameo represented what the film was going to be like. I can see some people liking this and some people hating it. 10. Rio Lobo - John Wayne Western, notable for being the last film Howard Hawks directed, I liked it however it's not the only film with Rio in the title Wayne made or film with a similar plot so I can see myself questioning in the future whether I've seen it or not. David Huddleston was very enjoyable as the Dentist, and Jack Elam (who I rate very highly) was great too.
11. Wired - I watched it on Youtube, seems unlikely it will get any home video release and have never seen it pop up on something like Netflix (doubt it ever will), first thing is Michael Chiklis was great as Belushi, and the rest of the film is a fascinating trainwreck of a movie, I wish I could say I was offended by it all as it does a disservice to Belushi but it just didn't get me angry about it. 12. Light Up The Sky (aka Skywatch) - 1960 British WW2 movie, that is enjoyable comedy with a great cast including Ian Carmichael (who's from my hometown), Tommy Steele and Benny Hill, I say it's a comedy but there is one scene that surprisingly manages to pack an emotional punch. 13. The Brady Bunch Movie - love this movie, and it's perfectly cast too like for example you could believe Christine Taylor is related to Maureen McCormick. Maybe I am wrong but Jean Smart since she was in Life Itself is the first actor I've watched in 2 films this year. 14. Tully - I'm not sure what I think, elements of it I liked and Charlize Theron gave a good performance, but the sum of the parts didn't quite add up for me. 15. Cyberbully - counting this because it was a one off TV special that comes in over an hour. Maisie Williams is terrific in this and carries it (it's basically her for most of the run) and hope she is as long future ahead once GOT finishes. 16. Little Monsters - I think if I didn't watch this as a kid a few times I would be less forgiving, which I think can be the case with a few 80's movies for me, was good to watch again for nostalgic purposes but not going to pretend it's a classic. 17. I, Daniel Blake - It's hard to write about this film without getting political, but I will say it resonates with me and my belief system. Ken Loach is still knocking it out the park 50+ years in the business. 18. Red Sparrow - Wish it got me more, I didn't think it was bad per say but it just didn't do enough for me, maybe a sense of fun would have benefitted this movie. 19. Wrongfully Accused - Haven't seen this in a long time, I'm not sure how polarizing opinion this but the movie is pretty funny, I mean it's not vintage Airplane/Naked Gun but as funny moments, the Usual Suspects parody is a fun one. 20. A Million To Juan - not sure why I chose to watch this, maybe because choosing it seemed out of the blue. It's starring and directed by Paul Rodriguez, it as some charming enough moments and Cheech as a fun cameo but it screws up trying to pile it on emotionally in the final act.
21. Cry Baby Killer - produced by Roger Corman and notable for being Jack Nicholson's first film, it's not necessarily the best in the teen delinquent genre but credit due besides dark lighting made a gripping enough film between minimal locations. 22. Ready Player One - super enjoyable movie with plenty of great pop culture references. Really ended up enjoying this. 23. The Out-Of-Towners (1999) - a movie I surprisingly haven't seen until now, it's not great but enjoyable for what it is. 24. Poltergeist - watched this a lot as a kid, but been over 10 maybe 15 years since I last saw it, really enjoyable horror film, though I don't believe in curses can't help but think of the tragic deaths of two of the young cast members. 25 - The Princess Diaries - shocked I am upto movie 25 already. Anne Hathaway is utterly charming here in her breakthrough role and the rest of the cast are great and it's enjoyable film (where Hathaway still looked good pre-makeover). 26. The Princess Diaries 2 - not as charming as the first movie but still enjoyable, Heather Matarazzo's first scene is emerging from a closet, she came out between the movies, wonder if that was on purpose. Hey it's young Abigail Breslin! 27. Ella Enchanted - decided to continue on the Anne Hathaway connection with her other 2004 movie before she took more grown up fair in the next few years, this is enjoyable fantasy romp, probably in many ways a live action Shrek, with it's foot in pop culture and that. Parminder Nagra is underused in this though. 28. You Again - looks like I'm trying to break a forum record with films watched in a month, but I did feel like 2018 I didn't watch enough films. Anyway onto the film, it's a film I like - I adore Kristen Bell anyway, but it's the sort of film you felt like the issues could have been ironed out with a 10 minute chat, The Rock cameos early in the film, shows how much muscle he put on even since this cause he looks comparably skinny. Hey it's a Libby from Sabrina The Teenage Witch early in the movie as a flight attendant. 29. Bird Box - a gripping film for the most part but will echo what I've heard others say and it loses its way at the end. Surprised to see Parminder Nagra in the movie, think this is the first time I've heard her do an Indian accent. 30. Twister (1989) - Comedy rather then Bill Paxton and Helen Hunt chasing tornadoes, this is more off kilter then ever really funny, I enjoyed it for what it was with Crispin Glover playing an oddball (a stretch for him I know).
31. Dumbo - only coming in at little over an hour this undeniable classic is such an easy watch, it's a film I haven't watched it a long time so was a welcome revisit. 32. The Wedding Singer - I know most people are not fans of the Sandman (I'm not sure that's his nickname) but you can't deny him and Drew Barrymore have great chemistry together through there 3 films, this is the best of the 3, with Barrymore being extremely likable (adds to the reason she was one of my biggest crushes of the 90s and 00s) 33. The Wedding Guest - didn't plan to watch 2 films with wedding in the title in a row (though it's alternative title is Literally, Before Aaron), is a comedy but despite a few good lines and some cast I am fan of, it just is not all that great. 34. School Of Rock - still enjoyable to watch 16 years later (God I feel old now), featuring a hugely talented child cast it's a film I find it impossible to dislike. 35. Rampage - fun movie, Dwayne Johnson is batting better averages for me these days then he once was (not that a lot of stuff wasn't bad it just wasn't stuff I thought was great), anyway it's clear George steals this movie. 36. Bend It Like Beckham - Great turns from Parminder Nagra and Keira Knightley in a film that's charming, you can't help but think the Joe romance is shoved in (that's what she said) to play down the lesbian angle (though that's addressed). 37. Fyre: The Greatest Party That Never Happened - the documentary was an interesting watch to see what the disaster was that turned out, I do have sympathy for those scammed no matter how rich they where. 38. The Last Movie Star - Maybe Burt knew his time on Earth was limited because this feels like a swansong (though there is films released after this), gives a wink to Burt Reynolds the movie star including reusing footage from his earlier movies, him and Ariel Winter made a great duo here. 39. Spider-Man 3 - was looking after Nephew and he wanted to watch it as it was never on my radar to watch again, you know what it ain't perfect but it's not as bad as I remember. 40. The Man Who Knew Too Little - been a long time since I last watched this. This is an entertaining comedy, think it's a bit underrated.
41. The Ice Storm - a film I am a really big fan of that I wanted to revisit, being British America suburbia is one of those things I am fascinated with, Christina Ricci shines brightest in this movie for me. 42. Leonard Cohen: I'm Your Man - I'm ulta bias because I love Leonard Cohen, so anything i say is not impartial, a bunch of talking heads including Cohen himself and interspersed with a concert of many artists doing versions of his song including some good names, none of the versions are as good as Cohen's but again I am not impartial. 43. Peeping Tom - Absolute classic from Michael Powell, that savaged by critics on original release in 1960. 44. La Jetée - the French short film that would get remade as 12 Monkeys. Using narration and sound effects over still images, it's an interesting concept that I liked but think I'd lose interest if it was a feature length, I particularly thought the use of sound effects was haunting and some really memorable images where used. 45. Candleshoe - Disney movie from the 70s starring Jodie Foster and David Niven, found it enjoyable and charming. 46. Philomena - this is the second movie of the month where I have felt angry how something like this can happen. Based on a true story, despite the subject matter it as time to have some funny moments. 47. Isle Of Dogs - Wes Anderson movie, not really sure what I think of it just yet, the animation is neat and interesting moments, but seems xenophobic to the Japanese. 48. The Loveless - co-directed by Kathryn Bigelow and starring Willem Dafoe at only around 80 minutes this film just flies by, loved the dreamy quality of it all. 49. Howard The Duck - I know it's reputation but it's a film I can't dislike. Lea Thompson helps as well. 50. Mom and Dad - lot of fun, Nic Cage is a lot of fun shockingly being his deranged best.
51. The King Of Comedy - Black comedy, not a hit on original release, an argument could be made it's before its time on the subject of fame. I would also argue it's among Martin Scorsese's best movies. 52. An Evening With Beverly Luff Linn - a film that tries too hard to be quirky which a shame because there is actually funny moments throughout. Aubrey Plaza does a nice dance at the end. 53. Carpool - always caught the end of this on TV in the 90s, so never saw the full movie until now, it's actually not too bad really, Tom Arnold is not to everyone's taste so that might mean something to people's enjoyment. 54. Bohemian Rhapsody - love Queen so always going to be bit bias, it's a film I really liked, obviously not perfect but the spirit is there. Rami Malek is of course the stand out as Freddie. 55. Crazy Rich Asians - Got to be honest here, the comedy and the drama didn't mesh well in my opinion, and there is some funny jokes here, I just honestly didn't feel it was particularly great movie. 56. The Spy Who Dumped Me - I actually liked this more then I thought I would, Mila Kunis and Kate McKinnon are a good pairing. This is the 2nd Mila Kunis film with male genitals. 57. Alita: Battle Angel - got to see a preview screening of this tonight to mark my final film of the month, My honest opinion is it's visually amazing but I just didn't feel engaged enough with the characters.
