26, i think) FACE/OFF (1997, film)

this movie somehow manages to balance batshit insanity and genuinely well done emotional beats like it's fucking nothing and then some, and god is it so damn good. one of the best AAA action movies i've ever seen

10/10
27) Toy Story 2 (1999, film)

STILL THE GOAT BAYBEEEEEEE

10/10
28) Sonic the Hedgehog (2020, film)

i know nothing about sonic the hedgehog outside of the genesis games but this was a pretty decent movie, especially compared to the majority of other video game adaptations i've seen

7/10
29) Buzz Lightyear of Star Command (2000, film)

basically a glorified tv pilot disguised as a direct to video movie. a decent effort but i didn't vibe with it that much, tho i wish this and the tv series got a proper hd remaster someday

6/10
30) Judas and the Black Messiah (2021, film)

"Anywhere there's people... there's power."

10/10
31) Collateral (2004, film)

by far my favorite film from michael mann to date with some of the most expertly crafted direction done in a thriller i've seen along with some of the best performances this cast has given, especially foxx and cruise. honestly remarkable

10/10
32) Do the Right Thing (1989, film)

the most beautiful part about this movie honestly is how it manages to be like this blend between a hangout movie and a drama about racial tensions and the climax has everyone coming together to fight a greater evil. fuck the police man

10/10
33) Toy Story 3 (2010, film)

a bit too dark for my liking but holy shit. don cheadle word of the day: agony

8/10
34) Edward Scissorhands (1990, film)

me, for the first hour: haha the guy with scissors for hands is charming and really funny! i hope he gets the happy ending he deserves

me, at the end: fuck. fuck fuck fuck im crying now

8/10
35) Roujin Z (1991, film)

i like a lot of the themes this movie presents and a lot of them are done well but it could def. benefit from a longer runtime and a deeper dive into the whole artificial intelligence angle outside of "one is a wife and the other wants murder"

7/10
36) House of 1000 Corpses (2003, film)

this movie had so many chances to be interesting and super wild but instead it mostly decides to be a nu metal remake of the texas chainsaw massacre before, yknow, the ACTUAL nu metal remake to the texas chainsaw massacre. conflicted

6/10
37) Tom and Jerry: The Movie (1992, film)

this is a tom and jerry movie where tom and jerry do their schtick maybe three times tops and the rest is occupied by a really bland and uninspired story with some of the shittiest musical numbers you can come across. it's not good

2/10
38) Tom and Jerry (2021, film)

much, MUCH better movie but still not that good. i mean the tom and jerry stuff was great and i love how they're animated but everything else varies wildly in quality, this is definitely A Movie Of All Time

5/10
39) The Big Lebowski (1998, film)

i like how despite the dude living in a shitty apartment and is constantly broke, he's portrayed in a much better light than the nihilists who are somewhat wealthy and have more fulfilling lives but don't appreciate any of it

9/10
40) Barbie as The Princess and the Pauper (2004, film)

listen.

this entire thing is worth it for martin short playing a malicious homosexual alone, okay

7/10
41) Mobile Police Patlabor - The Early Days (1988-89, anime)

outstanding animation and (mostly) really well written and likeable characters but there's definitely a lot of potential that i'm really looking forward to seeing be (hopefully) tapped in the movies. fun stuff

7.5/10
42) Ratatouille (2007, film)

the fact that this movie is as good as it is and has its name derived from a fucking shitty pun should be illegal, honestly

10/10
43) The Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975, film)

genuinely cannot remember any other movie where i went "OH MY GOD" every 5 or so minutes, such a fucking fun movie especially with friends. where has this been all my life

9/10
44) Patlabor: The Movie (1989, film)

mamoru oshii b like damn dude wouldn't it be fucked up if computers got viruses but they spread like human ones and they become zombies if infected

8/10
45) Patlabor 2: The Movie (1993, film)

“Our economic prosperity is based on demand created by those countless wars. Its hands are covered in blood. That's the stuff our peace is made of. An unabashed lust for peace based on an unmitigated terror of war."

10/10
46) Ghost in the Shell (1995, film)

that was the longest short film i've ever seen

8/10
47) Spy Kids 3: Game Over (2003, film)

mike judge and george clooney play major characters here and i felt that was worth mentioning. very fun

7/10
48) Brian Eno - Apollo (1983, album)

a perfect audio example of blending feelings of isolation and depression with comfort and alleviation. a reminder of humanity in a time of discord and bleakness. either that, or brian eno just thought dissociating synths sounded cool

9/10
49) Bring Me The Horizon - POST HUMAN: SURVIVAL HORROR (2020, album)

"WORLD IS A FUUUUUUCK" *CHUNKY ASS NU METAL RIFF*

8/10
50) House (1977, film)

what

8/10
51) Urusei Yatsura: Only You (1983, film)

these hoes ain't loyal

6/10
52) Rob Zombie - The Lunar Injection Kool Aid Eclipse Conspiracy (2021, album)

basically white zombie minus the memorable grooves, edge and grime but FAR more homogeneity. it's dirty but also way too cleanly produced if you catch my drift, just a pointless waste of time

4/10
53) Godzilla (2014, film)

honestly way better than i remember. the human drama is surprisingly well done and i appreciate it taking on the "what if this really happened" side of things rather than endless monster fights, even if the last 20 minutes ruled. solid stuff

7.5/10
54) Jeopardy! (2003, game)

i would like to thank my friends and google for this absolutely massive landslide victory, this was a very fair competition and i would like to tell my teammates to suck my dick for losing. lmao nerds

10/10
55) The Illusionist (2010, film)

misery porn that insists upon itself

8/10
56) Total Recall (1990, film)

once again, verhoeven is proven to be the fucking man

9/10
57) The Terminator (1984, film)

at one point while watching with friends we were discussing the practicality of giving terminators dicks and it devolved into discussing if the human resistance had penis inspection days during the future war

8/10
58) Terminator 2: Judgement Day (1991, film)

"I know now why you cry, but it's something I can never do."

10/10
59) Kong: Skull Island (2017, film)

this is a movie

6/10
60) Terminator: Dark Fate (2019, film)

a humorless, lifeless and borderline sleazy attempt to revive a dead franchise through means of "fanservice" and removing crucial parts of the franchise people loved for the sake of the most half assed attempts at drama you'll see

4/10
61) Who Framed Roger Rabbit? (1988, film)

truth be told i am not a huge fan of zemeckis but i'll admit, the way this film blends a genuinely fun narrative with some honestly really amazing technological feats did sell me on this more than i was expecting it to

8/10
62) Zack Snyder's Justice League (2021, film)

we initially watched this as kind of a joke but then by the time the flash did his big scene at the 3.5 hour mark we all went fucking apeshit. when i loved it i loved it but when i didn't it was still enjoyable but less so

8/10
63) Aliens (1986, film)

on a technical level this is up there along with blade runner for having the best visual effects of the 80s and the story in the first hour and a half is really engaging but as soon as the climax is abt to kick off it kinda falls apart for me

8/10
64) Godzilla: King of the Monsters (2019, film)

in terms of the narrative it's kind of a huge downgrade from the first film but it does have hype ass moments of monsters beating the shit out of each other so in the end it somewhat balances out

7/10
65) Gremlins 2: The New Batch (1990, film)

genuinely a high contender for one of the greatest sequels ever made

9/10
66) Predator (1987, film)

manages to be both a fantastic example of a deconstruction and reconstruction of a genre while retaining all respect to it without having to resort to condescending the audience for enjoying it. also generally just a cool ass movie

9/10
67) Speed (1994, film)

shit goes horribly wrong so often and so quickly in this film that it's basically the cinematic equivalent to murphy's law and i absolutely LOVE that, so much fun and absolutely an action classic

9/10
68) Godzilla vs. Kong (2021, film)

sure this has some of the most comically undercooked characters of all time in a story that feels like it needed properly established characters to work but the last half hour and anything regarding the monster lore is raw so yeah

7/10
69) Roz's 100 Door Challenge Game (2009, "game")

this was a game that came included in a monster's inc blu ray that i bought from half price books for like $10 and i loathe myself for getting through the entire thing. i've never felt so empty by completing something

3/10
70) Police Story (1985, film)

No panes of glass were harmed during the creation of this film.

7/10
71) Bad Trip (2020/2021, film)

it's the most basic road trip buddy comedy movie of all time but it's elevated by the deranged nature of eric andre's presence mixed with jackass-esque stunts that gradually become more and more wild until it climaxes in a wild ass payoff

8/10
72) Event Horizon (1997, film)

one of the most fascinating messes of a film i've ever sat through, if i'm being honest. brimming with potential and has some of the best pieces of imagery in a sci-fi horror film but jesus christ the writing is all over the place

6/10
73) Face/Off (1997, film) [REWATCH]

peak. cinema.

10/10
74) Happy Gilmore (1996, film)

watched simultaneously w/calli's watch-a-long and while it was fun and the movie was still good if i could add my isp to my media thread, comcast is without a doubt getting a 2/10

7.5/10
75) It's Such a Beautiful Day (2012, film)

one of the most egregiously depressing yet beautifully uplifting films i've ever seen. its themes of existentialism and memories manage to both strike a chord of melancholy and optimism in a way unmatched. bill will live on.

10/10
76) Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb (1964, film)

nuclear warfare fucking sucks! i wouldn't recommend it in any capacity

9/10
77) The Cat in the Hat (2004, game)

this is the first game i beat this year.

2/10
78) Batman Versus Predator (1991, comic)

a surprisingly very solid little miniseries that pits the caped crusader against the perfect hunter. it's very short at around 100 pages and delivers squarely on the title, so if you've got time to kill, go for it

8/10
79) Animaniacs: Ten Pin Alley (1998, game)

things come in

😜/10
80) Videodrome (1983, film)

IT SEEMS TODAY
THAT ALL YOU SEE
IS VIOLENCE IN MOVIES
AND SEX ON TV
BUT WHERE ARE THOSE GOOD OL FASHIONED VALUES
ON WHICH WE USED TO RELY???

7/10
81) Alien (1979, film)

if you can get past the slow burn pacing and intense atmosphere, you're in for one of the best slasher films ever made mostly held up by the immaculate set design, memorable characters and fantastic direction. still very much a classic to this day

10/10
82) Aliens: Special Edition (1990, film)

slight improvement over the original and adds extra character stuff which is always welcome, but not a *totally* different film. with that being said, check it if you're interested. it's jim cameron's prefered cut anyway

8/10
83) Alien vs. Predator (1994, game)

fun capcom beat-em-up with the alien and predator theme that manages to combine the best of both worlds, even if continuity is completely thrown out the window. also i would die for linn kurosawa

8/10
84) Predator (1987, film) [REWATCH]

yeah this shit still fucks hard

9/10
85) The 'Burbs (1989, film)

has a lot of bumps along the road and the ending is sorta strange for what it is but overall i enjoyed it quite a bit. probably not joe dante's peak zaniness nor is it his most focused film but it's definitely pleasantly weird

7/10
86) Night is Short, Walk on Girl (2017, film)

god. yes. YESSS. this is everything. i'm so fucking happy

10/10
87) Chronicle (2012, film)

dug the hell out of this. a superhero origin story that doesn't compromise on the real world consequences and dives into how these godlike abilities can destroy otherwise morally good people and their humanity. also fuck the us healthcare system

8/10
88) The Fast and the Furious (2001, film)

this is like rollerball if it had a plot

6/10
89) Alien 3 (1992, film)

sure the last 30-ish minutes are kinda okayish but holy shit, the road there is just absolutely repugnant for the most part. pretty much a template for how not to make a dark and bleak film as it feels like an edgy high schooler wrote it at points

3/10
90) Matinee (1993, film)

part really well done commentary on how the cold war influenced state sanctioned propaganda and the art of film and part joe dante screaming about how much he fucking loves movies. kind of drags at points but overall really enjoyable

7/10
91) Alien: Resurrection (1997, film)

this is an R rated marvel movie.

4/10
92) Prometheus (2012, film)

when it's focusing on david and his fascination with human capabilities and creation it's fantastic. when it's about literally anything else it's boring as hell and gets dull really fast for the most part. a slow burn that doesn't really work

6/10
93) Alien: Covenant (2017, film)

in a state of genuine shock because i kind of loved this? sure the characters for the most part are kind of just there and there are some dumb moments but this movie delivers on way more of walter's story and i'm so fucking happy it did

8/10
DAVID'S STORY. I MEANT DAVID. WHY WOULD YOU GIVE THE AMERICAN SOUNDING ROBOT A MORE BRITISH SOUNDING NAME FUCK YOU RIDLEY SCOTT
