Quentin Tarantino Movies: Ranked

The Best Tarantino FilmsThis is the definitive guide to all of Quentin Tarantino’s films. Yes, you read that correctly. This is the correct ranking of the nine (Yes, nine. I’m counting Kill Bill as one like Tarantino does.) films from Quentin Tarantino. These are the correct opinion, and if you don’t agree with me, you are just wrong.

Oh boy, this is going to be difficult as I attempt to not be murdered for my opinions on this list. Tarantino is a great director who has made four amazing films, two pretty good movies, one okay flick, and whatever the heck Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood was. Now, comes the time to rank them as I’m sure that many will disagree with my rankings, mainly numbers 9 through 1, but as we now stand in a waiting period of possibly six years until the next one, it feels like now is the best time.

Disney’s Animated Films: Ranked

The Best & Worst Disney animationsI don’t think I’ve ever mentioned the fact that I have a little brother. 16 months and approximately 240 pounds, Maclane has the same passion for one movie in particular as I did, Toy Story. Similar to me, he watches it (intermixed with the sequels) pretty much daily. While I do believe that the Toy Story series are some of the best animated films ever made, taking up two of my top five slots, there is only so many times you can watch one movie back to back.

Therefore, I decided to watch some other Disney films my family owns in order to find some others he may like. This eventually evolved into attempting to watch every single Disney animated film from Aladdin to Zootopia. There are some exceptions, as I either wasn’t able to find some of these films, mostly being the direct to DVD sequels like Brother Bear 2 or older films like Ichabod and Toad. However, besides those, I did a pretty good job finding these, as I watched a total of 69 animated Disney films since May 1st, 2019, (disregarding the six I had seen before and did not rewatch for this event) and boy was it difficult!

The Entire X-Men Franchise: Ranked

X-Men Movies Ranked
X-Men: Dark Phoenix 
is out in UK cinemas on June 5th, but it’s been a bumpy ride getting here. After the release date was pushed back twice, the whole third act had to be reshot and rumours of on-set tensions between some of the cast, things don’t look too rosey for our merry band of mutants.

Nevertheless, this is the culmination of everything Fox has been working towards since the release of X-Men: First Class in 2011, so it seems prudent to rank all the X-Men films, including standalone movies, before our spoiler-free review of Dark Phoenix is released on Friday 7th June. Without further ado, let’s get down to the nitty gritty. Continue reading

The Entire Marvel Cinematic Universe: Ranked

Every MCU movie rankedThe time has come. We stand on the edge of what Marvel has been working on since what feels like the dawn of time. Of course, the MCU actually first came into existence in 2008 with the release of Iron Man, but ten years is a long time in movie-land.

Avengers: Endgame promises to shape everything that follows in the MCU and hopes to build on the frustrating climax of its predecessor Infinity War, in almost every way. It’s longer (at a minute over three hours long), has more characters than anything else like it and is one of the most expensive films ever made, costing an estimated $600million.

Anthony and Joe Russo, who directed Captain America: Civil War and Endgame’s predecessor have their work cut out again. Before you go to see Avengers 4, sit back and relax as I take you through the definitive MCU ranking. And I do believe a spoiler warning is in effect.

Final Destination: Franchise Reviews

Final Destination series postersIn the second of the new series taking a retrospective look on an entire series of films, I focus my attentions on the popular Final Destination franchise.

This incredibly successful Final Destination movies thrilled cinema-goers from 2000, right up until 2011 when the final instalment (for now) was released. The future of the franchise however is looking uncertain with no official announcements about a 6th edition since late 2011.

Warner Bros. may be missing a trick with this however as each film in the series has been commercially successful. The five films as a whole have grossed over $650million worldwide on a total budget of $150million. Without further ado, let’s see how this franchise holds up to scrutiny. Oh, and feel free to check out the first in the series, Jurassic ParkBe warned, this article contains some gory images. Continue reading
