Title Year Rating Rank Review
Nocturnal Animals2016991(full review) - Nocturnal Animals is a beast of a movie. With just his second feature film now under his belt buckle, sophomore director Tom Ford has made it clear that he is a heavy hitter who intends to play ball this awards season.
Blade Runner 20492017982(full review) - I’ve got nothing but praise for Blade Runner 2049. Creatively refreshing, boldly throwback, and utterly glorious, Denis Villeneuve’s sequel is a stylistic and visionary cinematic feast that lives up to Ridley Scott’s 1982 original in every way.
Fences2016973(full review) - Delivering an intimate affair that feels like a stage production on the big screen that captures the challenges husbands and wives face and the struggles fathers and sons create, Fences is an engrossing motion picture that winds the clock back and showcases what America really was for people of color when it was supposedly great.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 22017973(full review) - Chock full of Easter eggs from the Marvel Cinematic Universe and general pop culture lore, infused with a vibrancy that matches the groovy soundtrack, and assembled with a charismatic, offbeat cast, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is an unmistakably American movie.
Manchester by the Sea2016973(full review) - A gut punch that really taps into the human element of cinema in a way that most recent films have failed to do, Kenneth Lonergan's Manchester by the Sea is an emotional rollercoaster that feels pretty familiar to anyone who has simply lived. The human element here cannot be overstated.
Silence2016973(full review) - Amidst the storm that's brewing in America (possibly golden showers in the forecast), it's a time when the idea of a Muslim ban or registry floats around from our newly inaugurated Tweeter-in-Chief. To have a vicious, unrelenting film about religious oppression arrive at this moment is a cinematic reminder that history has the unfortunate tendency of repeating itself.
Hidden Figures2016937(full review) - I've got nothing but love for Hidden Figures. Director Theodore Melfi's historical comedy-drama does what the best films do. It teaches moviegoers something they probably never knew before the theater darkened and the film began.
Anomalisa2015888(full review) - Smartly written, acted, and directed, Anomalisa is an animated film that runs counter to most other fare in its genre in this respect. It's simply on a different level.
Hacksaw Ridge2016888(full review) - Emotionally resonant, morally poignant, and historically relevant, Hacksaw Ridge is undoubtedly the best war movie to grace theaters in years.
Logan2017888(full review) - While I'm not sure quite where it sits on the extremely convoluted timeline of the X-Men franchise, I do know that Hugh Jackman's final outing as Wolverine stands tall amongst his solo outings.
Battle of the Sexes20178411(full review) - Showcasing the ugly side of chauvinism and what a few courageous women did to challenge it for all the public to see, Dayton and Faris blend comedy, competition, and commotion to craft one engaging piece of cinema.
Wonder Woman20178411(full review) - All I can say now that this moment in cinematic history is finally here is that it's about damn time. Earnest, gritty and glorious, Wonder Woman is the first truly great installment in the DCEU.
Florence Foster Jenkins20168013(full review) - It takes someone this good in order to purposefully be that bad, and there's no one better on the big screen than cinematic legend Meryl Streep.
Get Out20178013(full review) - With the snap, crackle, and pop of an eerie, old school thriller yet the sensibilities of a woke director, Jordan Peele's Get Out is a plain and simple knockout.
Southside With You20168013(full review) - Simple, elegant, and heartfelt, Southside With You is an earnest romantic comedy that captures the beginnings of our First Family with an unmistakable grace and dignity.
Fast Five20117517(full review)
Central Intelligence20167018(full review) - It's nonsensical at times. It's formulaic at others. Regardless, Central Intelligence is entertaining as hell at all times.
Fast And Furious20097018(full review)
Fast And Furious 620137018(full review)
What We Do in the Shadows20147018(full review) - What We Do in the Shadows is one fun romp. Directors Taika Waititi and Jemaine Clement offer a fresh take on traditional bloodsuckers with their thoroughly entertaining mockumentary comedy.
Fast And The Furious (2001)200165.622(full review)
2 Fast 2 Furious20036123(full review)
Furious 720156123(full review) - For me, Fast Five was and still is the high point in the franchise. As entertaining as Furious 7 is, it can't reach the heights of the fifth installment or its predecessor Fast & Furious 6.
The Fate of the Furious20176123(full review) - No longer one of the street racing movies of yesteryear, The Fate of the Furious self-identifies as a spy caper. Jetting from one exotic location to another like a 007 flick, director F. Gary Gray takes the action around the globe in grand fashion.
Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, The200611.626(full review)
