Exit Through the Gift Shop - 10/10
Brilliant documentary that heads off in an unexpected tangent. This is a sly comedy that pokes fun at the art world. Banksy remains an enigmatic enigma.
 
Her - 10/10
Brilliant, stunning little romantic tale of the near future as Joaquin Phoenix's quiet, shy protagonist falls in love with his computer system. Spike Jonze creates yet again another fantastical tale that is beatifully performed from the stars (including Scarlett Johansson's wonderful vocal work) and one hell of a script.
 
Dallas Buyers Club - 10/10
McConaughey gives it his all in this no holds barred look at the AIDS epidemic and a small bunch of people brought together by their involvement in finding a way of living through the disease. A downbeat, unforgettable drama.
 
The Grand Budapest Hotel - 10/10
Ralph Fiennes surely deserves an Oscar nom for this hilarious performance in Wes Anderson's cheeky, quirky ensemble piece. The director has certainly crafted his own style by now and this is one of the many highlights of a director at the peak of his game. Ensemble cast, as always, is totally spot on.
 
Enter the Dragon (1973) - 8/10
Bruce Lee opens a can of woopass in this cult classic. Tongue-in-cheek fun.

The Raid (2011) - 9/10
Action sequences in this film are pretty stunning, especially that three way fight towards the end. Beat that Darth Maul. The film reminds me of that brilliant hammer in the corridor sequence in Oldboy, except it's not just a scene, it's an entire movie. Great adult entertainment. 
 
Bullitt (1968) - 8/10
Cool as a cucumber, this stylish cop thriller boasts great work from Steve McQueen and that car chase is rightfully hailed as one of the best. Excellent direction by Peter Yates.

Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol (2011) - 9/10
I guess I kind of wrote of the MI series after the dull second entry and so didn't bother getting back into it. However after recently watching part III which was pretty good I got around to this fourth instalment and was very impressed. It's just one great action set piece after another and done with such style, humour and a game cast. A fantastic action film and the whole Dubai sequence is pretty much astonishing, wish I had seen it on the big screen.

Oddly enough The Empire Strikes Back won the top spot in the magazine's 301 Greatest Movies of All Time - in this chart it's sitting at #302

Hello. Where can I view the full current list, because the one in the first page does not have (500) Days of Summer as #1. Heck, it's not even in that list! There must be something wrong!

The Times of Harvey Milk - 10/10
Brilliant documentary, full of rich detail following the deeds of one great man, who came to a vicious end. Excellent companion piece to the Van Sant movie.

Captain Phillips - 8/10
Extremely intense movie that feels like a documentary happening in real time. Hanks is mesmerizing in that final scene and had me in floods of tears.

Another spin-off list on the way so could do with some ratings from the following...


August: Osage County (2013)
Tells the dark, hilarious and deeply touching story of the strong-willed women of the Weston family, whose lives have diverged until a family crisis brings them back to the Midwest house they grew up in, and to the dysfunctional woman who raised them. 
 
 

Big Night (1996)
Tasty comedy-drama set in a struggling Italian restaurant in 50s New Jersey. Ian Holm and Stanley Tucci are among those taking orders in one of the finest food movies of the 90s.
 
 

From Here to Eternity (1953)
Oscar-showered adaptation of James Jones' novel about military corruption, romance and boxing at an army camp on Hawaii, just prior to Pearl Harbor.

 

The Godfather Part III (1990)
Coppola's saga reaches its conclusion as Michael Corleone struggles to legitimize his business and come to grips with the sins of his past. Al Pacino, Diane Keaton and Andy Garcia star.
 
 

Lifeboat (1944)
Hitchcock goes to sea in this Oscar-nominated character piece. Tallulah Bankhead is among the survivors of a Nazi torpedo attack on a cruise ship.

August: Osage County - 6/10
A rather, downbeat and depressing movie. Performances are all good, of course, from that cast but it's a bunch of characters that are not too much fun to spend time with.
 
From Here to Eternity - 8/10
Classic wartime romance, the film Pearl Harbour so desperately wanted to be.

The Godfather Part III - 7/10
It really is nowhere near as bad as Empire magazine has made it out to be. Sofia isn't great in it but there's more to the film than her performance. Pacino and Garcia are solid and the film has a faint wiff of the brilliance of the originals.

Lifeboat - 8/10
One of Hitchcock's cinematic experiments, this is a tense and enjoyable thriller set on a lifeboat. Tallulah Bankhead is fantastic in it.
 
7th Heaven - 7/10
Not a massive fan of the melodrama in silent movies, of which, this film is overflowing with. Still, an impressive cinematic feat for its time.

To Kill a Mockingbird (1962) - 8/10
Finally got around to seeing this golden oldie. Gregory Peck is perfect casting as Atticus and embodies the decency of the main character perfectly. I remember reading the book at school and I think it's pretty much a spot on adaptation. Great atmosphere and storytelling. A solid '60s classic.

M*A*S*H (1970)
Robert Altman's anti-establishment comedy set during the Korean War but satirising the US Vietnam war effort. Stars Donald Sutherland, Elliot Gould and Robert Duvall



Nashville (1975)
Robert Altman weaves a tapestry out of the lives of numerous characters connected to the music industry, many of whom become involved in a political gig for an independent presidential candidate



Short Cuts (1993)
Julianne Moore, Tom Waits and Tim Robbins are among a dozen big names in Robert Altman's Oscar nominated adaptation of Raymond Carver's short stories. At once rambling and finely tuned, it skilfully weaves together several strands of everyday life.



Stage Door (1937)
Adapted from the Edna Ferber and George S. Kaufman play, Stage Door is a comedic portrait of the theatrical community in New York.



The Trouble with Harry (1955)
Funny goings on in the woods. A strangely communicative corpse causes no end of bother for a small Vermont village in this macabre Hitchcock comedy. Hardly the master's best work, but well worth digging up



21 Grams (2003)
From the Mexican writer and director team behind Amores Perros comes this powerful English-language drama set in an unnamed American city, once again concerning three lives that intersect after a car accident.

MASH - 8/10
Pretty much a one of a kind war comedy.

Nashville - 8/10
Altman's signature film is a perfectly balanced multi-character drama.

Short Cuts - 9/10
Altman's other great film has once again a vast range of characters as their stories cross over. Truly amazing cast with performance highlights from the likes of Julianne Moore, Tim Robbins and Jack Lemmon.

21 Grams - 8/10
Compelling drama with some outstanding performances.

The Muppets - 7/10
Has it's moments, and some of them rather bizarre (Chris Cooper rapping?). Still a welcome return for the fuzzy ones.

Stage Door - 7/10
Nice enough multi-character tale, Katharine Hepburn stands out in the big cast of characters following a troupe of struggling actresses' trying to make it big.
 
Big Night - 8/10
Great performances in this small but delightful comedy drama with a great cast following the struggles of a family run Italian restuarant.. Anytime Tony Shalhoub and Alison Janney have a scene together it's just perfect. Ian Holm is also having a blast as the competitor, surely preparation for his role in Ratatouille.

#11 on Gimli The Dwarf's list...

Plan 9 From Outer Space (1959)
With its incoherent plot, jaw-droppingly odd dialogue, inept acting, threadbare production design, and special effects so shoddy that they border on the surreal, Plan 9 From Outer Space has often been called the worst movie ever made. 
 
#17 on Gimli The Dwarf's list...

Forbidden Zone (1980)
"What's a nice Jewish boy like you doing in the sixth dimension?" Frog butlers, randy dwarves and topless princesses wreak havoc in this near-mythical cult movie from the Elfman brothers.
 
#22 on Beetlejuice's list...

A History of Violence (2005)
The true identity of a small-town family man is questioned after he effortlessly dispatches two crooks. Drama directed by David Cronenberg, starring Viggo Mortensen, Maria Bello and Ed Harris.

 
#21 on Gimli The Dwarf's list...

Muppets Most Wanted (2014)
When The Muppets embark on a European tour, an international jewel thief who happens to look just like Kermit steals the frogs identity and sends him to a Siberian Gulag.

Plan 9 From Outer Space (1959) - 2/10
It's got a history of being called worst film ever for a reason, it really is that bad. Has some comedy value for a one off watch but there's nothing to it after that.
 
A History of Violence (2005) - 9/10
Cronenberg creates a strange atmosphere to this chilling, graphically violent movie with fine performances from an excellent cast. The revelation is excellent.
 
Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa (2013) - 8/10
Coogan is doing what he does best in this hilariously uncomfortable feature length outing for the pompous and socially awkward radio DJ Partridge. A fantastic comedy performance and he's got great support as well. 
 
The Good Shepherd (2006) - 4/10
Good cast can't really save the plodding along feel of De Niro's dry movie following the birth of the CIA. Well made but verges on being boring far too many times.

Safety Not Guaranteed - 9/10
Likeable quirky indie sci-fi comedy that benefits from the nice easy going performances of Mark Duplass and Aubrey Plaza. The romance angle is surprisingly sweet and the film has a few surprises along the way. A lovely charming little film.

Ichi the Killer (2001)
Sadomasochistic homoerotic yakuza thriller from Takashi Miike, director of Audition. Guaranteed to offend with its extreme violence and insouciant amorality.


#15 on rich's list...

Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home (1986)
Concludes the story arc begun with Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan (1982) and continued in Star Trek III: The Search for Spock (1984), but on a wholly new, different, and upbeat note.


#18 on rich's list...

Dawn of the Dead (1978)
The second of George A Romero's definitive zombie trilogy, boasting masterful, bloody special effects and a sly central horror movie metaphor.


#21 on rich's list...

The Hitcher (1986)
Rutger Hauer is the hitchhiker from hell in this inventive low-budget horror-cum-road movie. "Never pick up a stranger".

It's got a history of being called worst film ever for a reason, it really is that bad. Has some comedy value for a one off watch but there's nothing to it after that.

Ha, maybe I need to give it another watch but I just didn't even find it all that fun to sit through. Burton's Ed Wood is a much better film to have a laugh at Wood's directing style.

Dawn of the Dead - 8/10
Rightfully held up as the quintessential zombie film. Romero at his most gory, satirical, scary and funny. A little dated though but the remake was a worthy new take on it.

The Hitcher - 7/10
A solid enough thriller with one of Rutger Hauer's best roles. Probably won't stand up to repeat viewings.

The Woman in Black - 5/10
Daniel Radcliffe is the young man sent to investigate the woman in black, a ghost with a thing for killing children. The film goes around in circles quite a bit and we're spent far too long simply watching Radcliffe wander around the, admittedly spooky, house. This kind of thing probably works better on a visceral level on stage but the film adaptation relies on too many of the old ghost story cliches. Has a good few moments but this was just a little over-rated for me.
