Hard Boiled is a great bit of mindless action violence. I prefer stuff like Bullet In The Head, personally, but this is fun.
Porco Rosso - Fantastic movie. Miyazaki has really never put a foot wrong.
The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo - I prefer the Swedish version, this one is a great movie, too. Only issue I have with every version of this story is that it ends far too long after what should be the actual ending.

225. The Artist (2011)

The well deserving big winner at the Oscars last year. A sweet, nostalgic look at early cinema, performed brilliantly with plenty of humour and romance. A lovely film.


224. Happiness (1998)

A brilliantly dark comedy about perverts, paedophiles and other weirdos. The cast go all out in a rather daring way, particularly Dylan Baker. A film that I've shown to people who have been completely shocked by the subject matter. Todd Solondz unflinching direction weaves the stories together perfectly.


223. The Man Who Wasn't There (2001)

Perhaps the Coen brothers most under-rated film, this stylized take on film noir is absolutely stunning to look at. Billy Bob Thornton is perfect as the nearly silent lead character and there's plenty of able support from Coen regulars and a nice turn from James Gandolfini.


222. A Single Man (2006)

A beautiful film that follows Colin Firth's lecturer suffering from depression after the death of his male partner. Tom Ford's direction is extremely stylish and every frame is a piece of art. Firth is exceptionally good and Julianne Moore and a super hot Nicholas Hoult give fine support.


221. Cars (2006)

Sometimes unfairly maligned, perhaps because it is one of Pixar's lesser films. Still that's not to say its not a very enjoyable movie, with tremendous animation as always and a heart of gold right at the centre of it all.

220. Sliding Doors (1998)

An intriguing and clever little British romantic comedy drama that follows two paths one woman may have taken in her life. Gwyneth Paltrow at her most likeable and radiant.


219. Alice in Wonderland (1951)

Disney's weird and wonderful adaptation of the classic story is filled with off-the-wall characters and plenty of humour. Surreal and rightfully so, the studio at its most creative.


218. The Kids Are All Right (2010)

The five main cast members are at the top of their game in this vibrant comedy drama that is filled with lots of touching details of family life. A lovely little film.


217. C.R.A.Z.Y. (2005)

The story of one boy's struggle with his sexuality in his large Catholic family. A sweet, warm and likeable comin-of-age tale, its all been done before but not quite as touching and compelling as done here. Great script and performances all round.


216. Seven (1995)

One of the finest detective thrillers from the past twenty years. Fincher directs with a creeping intensity as the investigation into a very unusual serial killer unfolds. The film looks amazing despite the bleak horrors on show and the performances from Pitt, Freeman and Spacey are career highs.

215. Lucky Number Slevin (2006)

Excellent cast, an enjoyably quirky performance from Lucy Liu, neat plot twists and Josh Hartnett half naked for majority of the film. All you need for a quick firing tongue-in-cheek crime caper.


214. Alien (1979)

Still pretty terrifying even to this day. A top notch cast fight their way through the exceptional visual style, production design and special effects. Classic sci-fi horror.


213. Batman (1989)

Burton exceeded expectations with this stylish, perfectly designed adaptation of the popular comic book hero. Danny Elfman's score, the stunning visual design, Keaton's brooding performance and Nicholson's brilliantly OTT one cement over some of the minor flaws in the film (such as some slightly dodgy action sequences).


212. The Machinist (2004)

Christian Bale's skeletal figure hangs over this creepy chiller following a man's hallucinations due to insomnia. Its a Hitchcock style mystery with a haunting score and some eerie cinematography. Bale meanwhile is simply magnificent.


211. The Simpsons Movie (2007)

The movie plays out like highlights of the show at its best. Plenty of humour, satire, silliness and heart and of course exceptionally good vocal talents from the regular cast. The animation is also notched up a bit for the big screen and it looks great.

Naked 8/10 - Its not a film I can watch often, but it is twisted and intense piece of film making with a superb cast.

The Artist 7.5/10 - A great feel good movie.

Happiness 9/10 - One of the great films of the 90s.

The Man Who Wasn't There 8/10 - Stylish and touching thriller.

A Single Man 8/10 - Firth should have won the Oscar for this, for a debut it is very assured.

Cars 6/10 - Pretty weak overall.

Sliding Doors 6.5/10 - This more of a guilty pleasure than anything well, but its a fairly decent twist on a old rom-com story, pretty entertaining and functional cheese.

Alice in Wonderland 9/10 - A surreal fatasy masterpiece, just a beautiful film with great songs too.

The Kids Are All Right 8/10 - The balance between comedy and drama is very well handled, the characrters are brilliantly written and played by the cast, it is a very well paced and relastic film.

Se7en 9/10 - Pitt's performance is a bit of a problem, but besides that its a perfect thriller.

Alien 9/10 - A stand out piece of horror/SCI-FI ahead of its time.

Batman 6/10 - The more I see it in recent years it just feels unremarkable.

The Artists is just lovely.
Liked Happiness a lot.
The Man Who Wasn't There is good, but far from one of my favourite Coen films. Tony Shalhoub steals the film.
Don't like A Single Man but Firth is great.
Cars is ace.
Not seen Sliding Doors since it came out. Liked it at the time.
Alice is great.
The Kids Are All Right is alright.
Se7en is superb.
As is Alien.
And Batman.
The Machinist and Lucky Number Slevin I need to see again, Can't remember anything about them.

The Artist - Quite good, but Dujardin owns the film completely.
Happiness - Been on my to-watch list for about five years now. I'm a failure of a film watcher
Man Who Wasn't There - Great film, not as outstanding as some of the Coen's other work but still really good.
Cars - It's alright.
Alice- Haven't seen it since I was a kid.
Se7en - One of the greatest films I've ever seen.
Lucky Number Slevin - Better then I thought it would be.
Alien- One of the greatest films I've ever seen.
Batman - Not as good as I remember it as a kid but still great.
The Machinist - Really creepy film, and Bale's commitment to the role is absolutely terrifying.
The Simpsons Movie - Has it's moments, but the first 10 seasons of the show absolutely smash the film.

Girl With the Dragon Tattoo was great, but I've not seen the original so maybe the remake just copies it and my praise is misplaced
The Artist is wonderful
Alice in Wonderland is nowhere near my favourite Disney, but it's still good fun
The Kids Are All Right is fine, but it was the weakest Oscar contender from that year
Se7en remains better than Ikiru
Lucky Number Slevin surprised me, it was so much fun
Alien is amazing
Batman is decent, but I prefer Returns
The Simpsons Movie is just eh, which is nowhere near good enough considering the quality of the TV show

210. Barefoot Gen (1983)

The atomic bomb and its aftermath is brought to screen in this devastating animation. Disturbing and heartbreaking.


209. Hot Fuzz (2007)

Edgar Wright's team-up with Pegg and Frost is a hilarious, action packed homage to '80s action flicks. Its gory, silly and very funny and a nice buddy movie on top of it all. Great cast.


208. Once Upon a Time in America (1984)

Epic, captivating crime movie following the lives of four friends. Beautifully shot and directed and a fantastic evocation of the period.


207. Road to Perdition (2002)

Gorgeous visuals in this excellent crime drama about fathers and sons. Newman, Hanks and the young Tyler Hoechlin are brilliant and the cinematography is stunning.


206. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (2005)

Shaggy hairstyles aside, this is another excellent looking entry to the series. One of the most action packed thanks to the Triwizard tournament and the return of Voldemort. It gets pretty dark towards the end and Radcliffe handles it well.

Hot Fuzz 8/10 - Ambitious comedy adventure with a nice bromance at the heart of it

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire 6.5/10 - Its mid-range Potter, not up to the standard of the third, but much better than the first two.  Good effects, passible story, slightly overlong film.

205. Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981)

Spielberg's bare knuckled rollercoaster of a movie. One of the best adventure movies ever with a great role for Harrison Ford. Totally iconic.


204. Dawn of the Dead (1978)

A classic zombie movie, brilliant effects and an interesting satire on consumer culture.


203. District 9 (2009)

Highly original and thought provoking sci-fi. Brilliant effects and lead performance from Sharlto Copley.


202. Hellboy II: The Golden Army (2008)

Richly colourful superhero film with Perlman once again great in the lead role. The humour doesn't feel as forced this time and the villian is excellent.


201. 127 Hours (2010)

Danny Boyle imaginatively brings this horrifying true story to the screen. Hard to watch at times but completely compelling with James Franco at the top of his game.

Raiders of the Lost Ark 8/10 - Still a class act!

Dawn of the Dead 8/10 - A biting piece of horror satire

127 Hours 7.5/10 - I'm no Franco fan, but in this he was great.  Its a very powerful watch with a stylish look and effective soundtrack.

200. Spun (2006)

A grim, nasty little dark comedy that is a lot of fun to watch. The young cast are all game and lead by a terrific Mickey Rourke.


199. Iron Man (2008)

Robert Downey Jr and Jon Favreau were unusual choices as star and director but its totally paid off. A great superhero origin story.


198. Eastern Promises (2007)

Like David Cronenberg and Viggo Mortensen's previous union the film goes off in unexpected directions. Mortensen is brilliant and the film has a brutal, raw energy.


197. Lost in Translation (2003)

Murray and Johansson make for an interesting match and the chemistry between them is electric. Coppola directs the almost-romance with grace.


196. Sling Blade (1996)

Billy Bob Thornton's dark drama is a compelling tale of redemption with great work from the star director and Lucas Black.

Spun 7.5/10 - Good call on this Beetle its a bit of a gem and very overlooked.

Iron Man 7/10 - Great entertainment for the most part.

Eastern Promises 6/10 - Weak script with a patchy ending, Vigo is again excellent, but Watt's role is underwritten, Cronenberg delivers on the setpieces.

Lost In Translation 8/10 - Will prove a timeless classic.

Sling Blade 8/10 - One of BBT's best turns and a touching film.

Hot Fuzz - Good but not as good as Shaun.

Once Upon A Time In America - Amazing film.

Road to Perdition - Looks lovely but there's little else I like.

Goblet Of Fire - It's alright I guess. Azkaban (book and film) are much better.

Raiders - Brilliant fun.

District 9 - Not a fan.

Hellboy II - I didn't like the Golden Army themselves, but the film is great.

127 Hours- I like the film but I like Franco's performance more.

Spun - I really liked this. It had a great druggy, paranoid feel to it.

Iron Man - Great action flick, RDJ is charismatic as hell.

Eastern Promises - I liked History of Violence more but this film is still brilliant.

Lost In Translation - One of my favourite films

The best things about Hot Fuzz are Cate Blanchett and Peter Jackson's cameos, and Broadbent's "Great big bushy beard" line.
Only seen OUATIA once. Was Ok.
Love Road To Perdition.
Goblet of Fire is was probably my least favourite Potter, book and film. Still good though.
Raiders is amazing.
Dawn's good fun.
So's District 9
Hellboy 2's good, but the first is better.
127 Hours isn't bad.
Love Iron Man, Eastern Promises, Sling Blade.
Hate Lost In Translation

It has been 9 years since I saw it and at the time neither Murray nor Johansson had impressed me in anything. That's changed now so maybe a rewatch will be better,. Doubt it though
