Pretty much my favorite comedy movie, and easily my favorite zombie movie, Shaun of the dead made horror watchable for me, a task that is not very easy to do. Granted, Edgar Wright's direction of comedy and writing skills are unparalleled, but tha... Read the full review »

Hot Fuzz is a worthy sequel full of well timed jokes, and great performances. Shaun of the dead may be my favorite of the three, but Hot Fuzz is definitely one of the best buddy cop movies there are, giving us a fresh and exciting take on the long... Read the full review »

Christopher Nolan is the architect of my "Favorite movies of all time" list, and this movie is far from an exception. The entire cast delivers strong performances, bouncing off of each-other's energy and seriousness to create great chemistry, in t... Read the full review »

When we talk about how pivotal marketing is to a film, Passengers immediately comes to mind. The disingenuous campaign, masqueraded this production as a love story set in space; in reality, for an hour, the movie is a bleak, and realistic telling... Read the full review »

My personal favorite MCU movie, Guardians of the Galaxy played some serious blackjack, and it all paid off.The Guardians comic books have some very interesting and niche story elements, but this movie strives to break those conventions, and allow... Read the full review »

I can firmly say that if you told me ten years we would see Batman and Superman on screen together in live action, I would slap you in the face and call you a dirty liar. The spectacle of the movie is seeing these two "larger than life" fictional... Read the full review »

X2: X-men united greatly expanded on the first X-men outing - bringing in a darker tone, more serious themes, and more visceral action. The great things about this movie are the character development (from both the good and bad side) the groundbre... Read the full review »

Get Him to the Greek is the spin-off to one of my favorite movies ever, and I really do think it could not have been worse. The movie is painful, tasking, and mind numbingly stupid. The charm and sweetness presented in Forgetting Sarah Marshall is... Read the full review »

A worthy sequel to a surprise hit, 22 Jump Street packs a punch, with almost iconic level chemistry, and tons of hilarious buddy-cop fun. Read the full review »

The ageless redemption story of a melancholic loser, whose constant moaning and self-pity ultimately lands him a woman much better suited for him. This is my favorite rom com of all time, so the bias is definitely going to play a part. Forgetting... Read the full review »

An incoherent, yet sweet film that's main problems are not its attractive leads, but its overly raunchy content, and its inability to focus on one plot point at a time. Read the full review »

An incredibly original film, Sleeping with other people brings something new to table, with its "je ne sais quoi", and has a welcome spot on my favorite rom coms, just because of Jason Sudeikis' charming and funny performance. The film is not with... Read the full review »

Alien (1979)

10 / 10
A bleak, shrill, claustrophobic horror, Alien utilizes its vast emptiness, to create something truly horrifying to the core. Sigourney Weaver's breakout role as the destined "badass" Ellen Ripley, is revolutionary, sparking the trend of female sci... Read the full review »
