Not in Your Top 1000 TCIs
Bio: You will probably never see a 100 rating from me because I think no film is actually perfect. Every film, no matter how good, has it's problems and just simply can't get that perfect 100 rating. I am fairly new to this as well, so my rating system isn't exactly perfect yet. That being said, here's a small explanation of my ratings, because the tiers just don't tell the whole story.
85-100 - The best of the best!
80-84 - Amazing!
75-79 - Very good!
70-74 - Good!
65-69 - Not bad, could be better.
60-64 - Enjoyable.
50-59 - Watchable.
45-49 - Fairly watchable.
40-44 - Bad!
30-39 - Very bad!
0-29 - Ugh!

79 76% The Cabin in the Woods The Cabin in the Woods (2012) - Rated 02 Jan 2016
"This isn't your typical horror-slasher film. It's more in the realm of parodies and homages to classic horror films so consequently it brings out both laughter and fear at different moments. For what it is it's really well done and I had a lot of fun watching this."
86 95% Singin\ Singin' in the Rain (1952) - Rated 12 Jan 2016
"Singin' in the Rain is a thoroughly entertaining musical! Even though I'm not much of a musical person myself, I can see why it's being hailed as the finest musical of all time. It pretty much has everything. From the iconic scenes to great performances from Gene Kelly, Jean Hagen, Debbie Reynolds and Donald O'Connor. Not to mention the romance isn't shoved down your throat for no reason. I watched this for the first time in 2016 and I have to say the film truly stands the test of time."
84 90% Inside Out Inside Out (2015) - Rated 30 Dec 2015
"One of the best Pixar films to come out in recent years. They did an amazing job of showing us why we have and need these core emotions, through a compelling story that might actually force a mixture of these emotions out of you. It's a smart film made for both the young and the old, so parents who bring their kids to see the film, don't want to stab their eyes out as it's the case for dumb animated films like Alvin and the Chipmunks. Inside Out is something any Disney/Pixar fan should see."
85 93% Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens (2015) - Rated 29 Dec 2015
"TFA is one of the best SW films in the saga. It borrows certain elements from the originals, which they carry out smoothly enough, but some might still have a problem with it. The acting is great for the most part, the new characters are fascinating, even though new villains need to be developed a bit more. The mixture between practical effects and CGI is great. J.J. did an amazing job bringing people back home to SW. It's a film both the originals and prequels fans can join in together to love."
76 66% 5 to 7 5 to 7 (2015) - Rated 04 Jan 2016
"Not your typical romantic comedy. Not only is the comedic part kept to a minimum, but the realm of polyamourous relationships is not something that is usually explored in similar types of film. I must say it's pretty refreshing to experience this kind of story, even though it is a bit clichéd and predictable at times. A very solid film."
82 86% Irreversible Irreversible (2002) - Rated 02 Jan 2016
"A french shock art-film presented in the Memento-styled reverse chronological order. It's extremely well done with some really brutal scenes many people might have a problem with."
92 99% Paths of Glory Paths of Glory (1957) - Rated 09 Jan 2016
"Paths of Glory is a thought-provoking anti-war film as it should be. It shows the disgustingness of war with brutal honesty, where foot soldiers aren't really being thought of or even treated as human beings, but rather being treated as a simple expendable number. It really sticks with you and kind of makes you sick that something like this ever existed and by all means still exists to this day. Stanley Kubrick is a master and Paths of Glory is probably my favourite anti-war film."
80 80% The Lego Movie The Lego Movie (2014) - Rated 02 Jan 2016
"Everything is awesome ... including this film. The animations themselves are so well done, anyone who grew up with Legos is going to love watching this. Storywise it's okay but definitely not the main focus of this film. It's fun and witty at all the right places and definitely one of the better animated films to come out in the last five years."
