My Ranking for 2016 Movies Caught out of Theatres

3 movies+tvshows - wednesday

So this is my second annual movie post – the movies I’ve caught outside of the theatres. The junk movies that I dare not pay full ticket prices for, the ones I just missed, the ones that I just found myself watching one crazy afternoon, evening, late night … on a flight to Melbourne, on a random channel on TV, on my new Netflix subscription (currently on my second month of Netflix). This year I have an assortment of really terrible movies on my list, and some decent ones. More terrible. Unlike last year where I caught some amazing Studio Ghibli gems.

And my rating for them … well, apart from the top three … the rest were just awful:

  1. The Good Dinosaur
  2. Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi
  3. Love Actually
  4. The 5th Wave
  5. Love & Other Drugs
  6. Goosebumps
  7. Knocked Up
  8. Zapped
  9. The Peanuts Movie
  10. The Incredible Burt Wonderstone
  11. Pride and Prejudice and Zombies
  12. A 2nd Chance

I know some people may be questioning why I put The Peanuts Movie so low – but picture a really long flight and me watching it somewhere in the middle of it. I don’t have much sentiment towards Peanuts, so although I know it’s supposed to be really endearing, it bored me to death. Again, these lists are very subjective.

To better movies out of theatres next year!

Till next time!

My Ranking for 2015 Movies Caught out of Theatres

3 movies+tvshows - wednesday

Hey guys!

So continuing from the movies I’ve watched this year in 2015, here’s the list of movies I watched out of theatres. I had a few goals for movies I wanted to conquer this year, part of it was watching staple movies that are shameful I have yet to watch, like notable sci-fis and 80s teen movies – so I did my best in that arena, and then there were just mindless trashy flicks that I went on marathons of like romcoms and Disney original movies, so those are there.

For some reason I’ve really enjoyed the movies I’ve chosen this year. And there are definitely some movies that will rival my favourite movie of all time, Pan’s Labyrinth. Studio Ghibli’s Howl’s Moving Castle is definitely one of them. I plan to rewatch that in the near future – again and again. Wes Anderson’s Moonrise Kingdom is another one. Other movies I intend to rewatch in the future include Two Night Stand and Clueless, definitely some mindless chic-flicks I’d add to my list.

So here’s the gallery and the order I watched them in:

And here’s my ranking:

  1. Howl’s Moving Castle
  2. Moonrise Kingdom
  3. My Neighbor Totoro
  4. Hugo
  5. Two Night Stand
  6. Clueless
  7. Heathers
  8. Lemonade Mouth
  9. Aliens
  10. Blade Runner
  11. 27 Dresses
  12. Pretty in Pink
  13. Love, Rosie
  14. Sixteen Candles
  15. Radio Rebel
  16. Cinderella (2015)
  17. Romeo & Juliet (2013)
  18. The Interview
  19. Ted 2
  20. The DUFF
  21. Pride & Prejudice (2005)
  22. See You in Valhalla
  23. The Spectacular Now
  24. That Awkward Moment
  25. What to Expect When You’re Expecting
  26. Annie

For me, any movie below the 20 mark was forgettable. I think this year Blade Runner was the Tron of last year. I really wanted to like it, but for some reason I just couldn’t like anything past the plot line. Maybe because it just doesn’t hold up over the years, I’m not sure. (Don’t hate me, Blade Runner fans.) I didn’t think it was better than the book it was loosely based off of, Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? which was also not as great, in my opinion, as it was hyped up to be – but was still pretty solid.

Let me know if there are any movies you think I’ll like based off of this list that I can try catching next year. Lately, I’ve been focusing a lot more on movies out of the cinema box office as opposed to in them. The next movie I’m currently eyeing is Studio Ghibli’s Castle in the Sky. Apart from that, I’ll just see where my browsing takes me.

Till next time!
