|8 T9||Edge of Tomorrow (2014) - Feb 11, 2017
"Underrated as all hell. Groundhog Day: Die Hard edition is a breath of fresh air in the action genre. Captured my attention from the get go and never stopped. With great balance throughout and strong leads, Edge kicks ass."
|6 T6||The Edge of Seventeen (2016) - Feb 11, 2017
"Harmless predictable fun. Ending was a bit too neat. "
|2 T2||Yu-Gi-Oh!: The Dark Side of Dimensions (2016) - Feb 11, 2017
"Arguably the longest film ever made. Its actually only 2 hours but it feels like 10. Has some self aware humor but its mostly utter tripe. Drink every time they say the word 'planar' and you'll die a quick death. "
|3 T3||Tengen toppa gurren lagann (2007) - Feb 11, 2017
"Bettered by many other anime in almost every single way. Doesn't grab your attention, wouldn't even bother to pass the time with this one. "
|5 T5||Lion (2016) - Feb 02, 2017
"I'm not sure being Australian and the absolute flogging of a marketing campaign, 'Lion' has received over here has corrupted me but this movie is just so BY THE BOOKS. Feel good story and capable acting (Sunny Pawar is great) sets it's foregone conclusion of a legacy as a daytime cable network movie that will pass the time. "
|5 T5||Hacksaw Ridge (2016) - Feb 02, 2017
"A war film you will never watch again. It's competently made (with some questionable 'War Horse' esque directorial choices towards the end) and Garfield gives it his all. Desmond T. Doss is a hero, there just isn't enough here. "
|7 T7||Moonlight (2016) - Jan 24, 2017
"First two sections of Moonlight dwarf the finale it has to be said. Some of the years best cinematography is at fold here (his mum screaming at him in his early years with the pink lighting was haunting). Mahershala Ali with limited screen time was absolutely captivating. The payoff just wasn't there in act three to round off what could of been a amazing character study. "
|9 T10||La La Land (2016) - Jan 24, 2017
"Sure it's the perfect Oscar genre but you can't deny the caliber and style of the way La La Land is made. Heartwarming and infectious direction from Chazelle with honest (superb) performances from the leads. I've googled to re-watch select scenes, driven to work listening to the score, this one clicked for me. "
|8 T9||John Wick (2014) - Jan 24, 2017
"I've avoided this. Seen a lot of love on forums and sites like reddit (remained unconvinced). I was on holidays, I couldn't sleep, I had a few beers, it was 2am, John Wick happened. John fucking Wick happened. Whether my judgement was impaired, I'll find out as I giddily await the sequel. "
|9 T10||Your Name (2016) - Jan 24, 2017
"Startling animation, just great. Humor ques and tone is completely on point. As is the charm and also from a stirring perspective. I truly cared about the outcome of the story and the characters within it. Fantastic and can't wait to revisit. "
