One guy who is seemingly incapable of making a bad film and is one of our only sources of original, big idea, big budget filmmaking is Christopher Nolan. The guy has officially been in the game for 20 years now, and with the release of his tenth film and his latest epic Dunkirk, I thought it would be fun to go through his canon of films and rank his films from great to masterpiece. Strap on in, because much like most of his films, we’re going out of chronological order for this one.
As of this writing, we’re on the very cusp of the very first orange-twinged, twitter twit to take the office of the most powerful nation on earth. Of course, I’m talking about everyone’s favorite thin-skinned, failed business man, Donald Trump. Somehow, in between avoiding paying federal taxes and berating celebrities on reality television, American voters[…]
2016 was a rough year all around, but we don’t need to reiterate all the terrible things that happened throughout the year here. I’m here to disprove a notion that 2016 was a bad year for movies. I was under the same impression before I started compiling this list, and I have to say, it was really tough to narrow these choices down to ten.

Well, except for the summer blockbuster season. Most of those were pretty terrible.
These all time great jump scares will jolt you right out of your seat!

Go see this movie! It is the small, bare bones psychological thriller that emphasizes mood and claustrophobia over big budget special effects and empty headed action set pieces, and it’s all the richer for it.
Die Hard is a bona fide all time classic. I revisit the movie myself every single Christmas since I was given the box set as a Bar Mitzvah present, and nearly 20 years later, the movie hasn’t aged a day outside of Bruce Willis’ hairline. A mercifully forgotten era of action filmmaking in the 90s[…]
Would you have ever thought that there was some awesomeness to salvage in crap like Wolverine Origins, Ghostbusters 2, Street Fighter, Bad Boys II, and Alien Resurrection? There totally is, and here’s the proof in a very shitty pudding!
This isn’t your Daddy’s Marvel movie. Deadpool is rude, crude, gruesome, sexually explicit, and has some of the most creative foul language I’ve heard since Kevin Smith’s Clerks. But is it any good? The answer is mostly yes. With many bullets.
