Screen Shot 2022-01-08 at 6.50.30 AMAnother part of my countdown of the 1000 greatest films through 2011.  Through Pinocchio, these are all a 94 and after that, they are all a 95.  So, high ****.  The introduction can be found here.  Previous entries can be found here. (more…)

“You are probably going to be a very successful computer person. But you’re going to go through life thinking that girls don’t like you because you’re a nerd. And I want you to know, from the bottom of my heart, that that won’t be true. It’ll be because you’re an asshole.” Not in Mezrich’s book. That’s pure Sorkin.  And true.  100% true.

My Top 10

  1. The Social Network
  2. True Grit
  3. The Ghost Writer
  4. Winter’s Bone
  5. Toy Story 3
  6. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part I
  7. The Town
  8. Shutter Island
  9. Rabbit Hole
  10. Never Let Me Go

note:  A much stronger Top 5 and Top 10 than the previous years. (more…)

Screen Shot 2021-11-26 at 11.42.51 AMYet another part in my countdown of the Top 1000 films in the first Century of Film (1912-2011).  The introduction can be found here and be clicking here, you can scroll through the preceding parts.  Every film in this group of 50 earns a 94 which is high ****. (more…)

Screen Shot 2021-10-03 at 7.34.48 AMThis is part something of this, I’ve lost track.  But you can find the original introduction here and by going here you can find all the other parts.  All of these films earn a 93 on a 100 point scale except The Commitments which is a 94 (which is a high **** while the rest are mid ****). The picture above wasn’t the easiest to decide on this time – I originally had Michael Caine images from three different films (in three different decades), there are two films with the same director and two stars, I could have gone with a different McKellen pic on the left to go with the one on the right or I could have done the other McKellen pic with another actor in the same role.

education-mulligan

The most memorable moment in the film – described in the book but not with dialogue.

My Top 10

  1. An Education
  2. Up in the Air
  3. A Single Man
  4. Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
  5. The Informant
  6. Precious
  7. District 9
  8. Coraline
  9. Fantastic Mr. Fox

note:  Not the strongest Top 5 and a fairly weak second 5.  But it had a lot of solid scripts (good enough to make the list) so there’s a more sizable continuation down at the bottom. (more…)

Screen Shot 2021-07-15 at 3.58.42 PMThis is the 10th part of the Top 1000 list.  The introduction can be found here.  This might be the only group of 50 in the Top 1000 without a single Hitchcock, Spielberg, Kurosawa or Woody Allen film among them.
Except for the four films at the bottom, these are all a 91 which is mid-range ****.  The bottom four films are all 92. (more…)

In a sense this is untrue. It’s been 27 years and Disney has yet to make a better film.

So, I have seen every feature film Disney has ever made, from Snow White through Black Widow.  And now I have ranked them all.

First, there is a full alphabetical list of every Disney film.  I won’t try to include too much information so that it isn’t too ridiculously long but I do have at least a slight blurb with every film.  But it does include the rank.  That way you can find a specific film.  At the bottom is the full ranked list.  This list somewhat supersedes my original Animated Ranking list but it might be pretty close – I haven’t checked.
