Before the start I'll mention a few things
I've seen a lot of movies in my life and became kind of picky, that's why I rarely give high score to a movie. A lot of titles I rated low, I used to like when I was a kid/teen, but in time I had to lower the score, because after watching many movies, some downgrade.
I post this, because I want to hear your thoughts on my opinions. Hope your answers are honest, hope you even post critisism on me if you have any. I'd also appriciate movie recommendations, judged by my other movie ratings if you think I'd like your movie, feel free to recommend it. I MIGHT watch it and respond with my opinion on it.
As you'll see I've probably rated a lot of movies you love low, just saying it's my opinion, so you shouldn't take my low ratings to heart.
I'll try to write as short and as concrete as possible on each movie. Some opinions will look not enough info or without any arguments at all. Lots of opinions will even use same and same words or sentences. Later I became so lazy and tired wrting this I just ran out of wring skills and probably gave worst possible reviews/opinions. I even put a wooden joke there and there. If you want to hear more information about a movie just ask.
My ratings are: 10 Masterpiece, 9 amazing or masterpiece with one or few minor flaws, 8 awesome, 7 great, 6 good(worth watching), 5 mediocre, 4 mediocre, kind of bad, but not too bad(didn't waste time), 3 terrible(wasted time, regret watching), 2 horrible, 1 abysmal, 0 unwatchable, burn it, burn all copies of it.
Also I have my personal lists for Favourite movies/anime movies/animated movies. If movie is one one of such lists I write it's place in it
Some opinions will include spoilers, some will not, read each description at your own risk.
list only contains movies I've seen, duh!
This is my very first Gamespot post, so point out any stupid mistakes, if I did any. Also my English is probably weird, just get used to it, cause it's not my native language bla bla bla, you know.
My friend always told me to post my opinion of anything online, so here I finnaly did it.
IMDB top number/movie title:
The Shawshank Redemption
One of the best movies I've ever seen. It's all about great characters and well written story. Not sure what else to say, many will agree.
10/10. 11th my favourite movie.
2. The Godfather
It would be amazing, but it's really overlong (3h). The whole first hour is what I describe as intro of this movie. Other movies would do a 10-30min, but not Godfather, it's just simply overlong to me. Would have cut a lot of it, 2,5h would have been perfect. On the other hand this movie has iconic soundtrack, great character developent, great twists and just tons of memorable epic scenes.
3. The Godfather: Part II
Okay, this one surprised me, in a bad way. Everything I loved about the first one is now gone or redone again in much worse way. And it's even longer than the first movie... Al Pacino's character become very unlikable for me. Also the whole backstory of Vito Corleone is so ordinary and boring to me - was poor, killed mafia boss, become mafia boss (somehow)... There not a single interresting scene in this movie. Also ending is totally a rip-off off the first movie, just much worse and lazier. At least 3rd movie is much more like original than this one
0/10 (sorry if made you angry, my opinion only)
4. The Dark Knight
Amazing. It's dark, funny, serious, dark, funny and serious. Joker is possibly the best villain of Batman movies and Heath Legder was amazing portraying him. Anyway it's full of practical effects action scenes, which are amazing too. The only let down this movie has is the final fight between Joker and Batman, I thought it was lame... Joker let the dogs out and was kicking Batman while he was down, seemed like a parody to me.
5. 12 Angry Men
One of the best movies of all time. All characters and actors' performances were amazing. You can theorize this movie to death. like Was the accused the killer or was he not. Or maybe one of the Jurors were the killer. I love this movie to death
10/10. 5th my favourite movie.
6. Schindler's List
Not much to say about this one. It's a real story about Oscar who spent all his money and saved a lot of jews. Ralph Fiennes was amazing. But it's not really anything special of a movie.
8. Pulp Fiction
It's weird movie. The whole suitcase concept I think is stupid. I'm probably the only one who thinks that Bruce Willis is the star of this movie. There are lots of unessesary scenes which I don't think are must include. The two scenes I love to death are there Bruce Willis visits his apartment, finds a gun and wait for Travolta to stop pooping before he shoots him, and the rape scene, of course. These two scenes are amazing, but there also many pretty cool other scenes. Overall I like it, even though it's very weird.
9. The Good, the Bad and the Ugly
Classic western movie, really overlong, there are way too much teasing scenes. Also to me characters are way not as good and likable as everyone else says. There are better western movies, though this one's very memorable, because of the really good adventure characters been though.
10. Fight Club
Really stupid movie, I barely understand why people love this so much. I mean it has spectacular special effects, but plot is crap and full of plotholes, like how could anyone followed a man who has a mental disability distortion, how does shooting youself in the neck kills you 2nd personality? and many many more other problems this movie's plot has.
12. Forrest Gump
It's classic, but nothing spectacular. It's a drama about a person's life. How a "stupid" person can succeed in life as much as any other could. I must admit the Kennedy scene was epic
13. Avengers: Endgame
Seriously? Well, I'll start with that I'm not a superhero fan, the whole concept is pretty average to me. Yet Marven makes same movies everyear and yeat people keep loving them more and more, similar to apple products. Anyway not judging, but I don't get the hype. Anyway about Endgame itself - I like the whole timetravel thing, going to previous movies was pretty good, though could've been better. Jokes are kindergarden level, even 1st graders make better jokes than Marvel. They ruined Thor and Hulk for me, screw marvel for that. Hulk is not a beast anymore and Thor is fat drunk now... Also Fortnite commercial... The fights scenes, the battle between superheroes and Thano's army is meh as it's happenning very fast, but battle against Thanos himself is really good, but way too short... Of course most good guys are brought back to life and all villains die, how ordinary, as in any other marvel movie. I'll admit even though i've seen very few superhero movies this one is one of the better. But nr 13 imdb top 250 is just so lame, I don't even care about lame movies' high ratings anymore. I've seen too much of this so don't even care if next Marvel movie will be nr 1 imdb movie... That's how bad the system is. Comics>movies
14./23./80. Star wars 4/5/6. To me Star Wars and similar movies are lame average adventure movies. I know that special effects were way before it's time, but I admire plot/characters/meaning/morals much more than effects. I think they all are same. Not sure why people rate some better than others. To me movies like John Carter are absolutely same quality, yet they are rated much lower, for some reason.
Amazing. It's a bit more complicated than your average movie. It's awesome. Tons of practical effects and great action too. Plot is very unique though the whole concept of dream within a dream is kind of stupid and illogical. Ending is good, but people make an elephant out of it, though it's only great ending.
17. One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest
It's a heartbreaking movie about friendship and rebellion against authority. Everyscene is either entertaining at worst or iconic and memorable to death. Great cast, great villains. Jack Nicholson is one of the best actors of all time.
10/10 10th my favourite movie.
Ordinary gangster life movie. Similar to Godfather, but far not as good or entertaining.
19. The Matrix
Best Sci-Fi movie ever made. It's also one of the best action movies ever made too at the same time. The plot is very unique and well thought out (exept for a plot hole where Cypher somehow gets in and not noticed talks with Smith). This movie is so iconic, that many many many movies have ripped-off or parodied scenes from Matrix.
10/10 13th my favourite movie.
20. Seven Samurai
Classic movie about samurais who defended a poor village from bandits. It's really iconic, though there are a lot of similar movies.
Average detective movie to me. Not sure why others find it special. Also the twist is spoiled by Kevin Spacey 5 minutes before, when he says that he has a surprise for them...
22. City of God
Great story about the people' life in Brazil. Very realistic and detailed. Ending is amazing
24. The Silence of the Lambs
A bit better than average detective movie. Anthony Hopkins/doctor Lecter is amazing, but else it's nothing special of a movie.
25. It's a Wonderful Life
Best family movie ever made. It's iconic classic, it's plot has been parodied billion times. James Stewart is one of the best actors ever
10/10 24th my favourite movie
26. Life Is Beautiful
Amazing movie. It is a comedy about the most brutal and disgusting time in history - holocaust. It's funny and very serious at the same time, it's tone swithing is very well done. Yet they had to ruin it by the end. It's really one of the movies there all 3 main characters should have survived, it would've been perfect family movie then.
9/10 Honorable mention of my favourite movies
27. Spirited Away
One of the best anime movies I've ever seen, yet there are a few much better in my opinion.
10/10 11th my favourite anime movie
28. Saving Private Ryan
Great action war movie. Very great story. Yet it sucks that captain dies.
29. The Usual Suspects
Average thriller movie to me. Twist is also very casual, seen billion times before and after, no surprise feeling at all.
30. Léon: The Professional
Fantastic movie about friendship between girl and and assassin. Action scenes are amazing, ending is badass.
10/10 honorable mention of my favourite movies
31. The Green Mile
Masterpiece. Tom Hanks is amazing. It's really depressing movie accually. Not all stories end happy
10/10 28th my favourite movie
One of the oldest and yet awesome thrillers ever made
34. American History X
Pretty much any movie about racism is a masterpiece. I really love these bad person turns good movies.
10/10 honorable mention of my favourite movies
40. The Intouchables
It's charming movie, nothing special, but it's really entertaining and fun drama
41. The Departed
Pretty good cop drama. Again, Jack Nicholson is the star here.
42. Back to the Future
It's really cringe movie. Everything is emberrassing in it. it's very silly and it knows it. But it's not a bad thing at all, it's very entertaining. Characters are iconic.
43. Terminator 2: Judgment Day
I don't know. It has lots of epic scenes, but most of the movie is in ugly blue filter also John Connor is a little brat. T1/T3 much better than this though T1000 is the best villain of the franchise. it would still be pretty awesome movie, but The thing I hate is that Arnold doesn't kill any human, I know it's part of the plot and it sucks bad. the part there he fires minigun, but doesn't kill anyone is ultra lame.
I love J.K. Simmons performance. It's pretty good movie, but that's about it.
45. The Lion King
Oh man, I hate this one. First it's a rip-off off another movie which is not known at all , it's a shame Disney got all the fame... Secondy, the plot is crap, it's full of annoying songs too.
46. Rear Window
Average thriller. I know it must've been amazing at it's time, but I never add points for nostalgia or being amazing for it's time.
Great Braveheart rip-off, though far not as good.
49. The Prestige
It's very weird. It's really stupid and smart movie at the same time. The worst thing is the two Christian Bales twist, the whole movie I was wondering why Christian Bale plays two characters in the movie, it shows how poorly they masked the twin. Also cloning machine is used for magic tricks... Yep. I'll admit it's weirdnes is entertaining.
This is gold. You either watch it backwards or original chronology and it's still great. Not sure though why even created the backwards version which is the main version of movie. Also it's absolutely not confusing at all if you just think while watching it, was the point of having it backwards was to make confusing?
Really crappy horror movie. Once again before it's time with it's amazing special effects, but there is no tense and it's so boring. The only scene which I admit is really awesome is the the alien burst out of guy's tummy.
54. Grave of the Fireflies
Would be nice story, but it is a really stupid and unrealistic movie. Characters are extremely stupid yet people cryes when they die, because of their stupidity... I'm talking cause I know the life of poor, I know how it feels then you don't get to eat for 3 days and other stuff. The girl could have easily survived, especialy then the boy finnaly got money and still didn't buy food until it was too late. WHY DIDN'T HE BUY FOOD WHEN HE COULD????
58. The Lives of Others
Masterpiece, it's a heartbreaking drama. Everything is unpredictable, yet realistic. It has amazing characters and ending is one of the best endings ever. It's so sad barely anyone has seen this movie, at least there I live.
10/10 4th my favourite movie.
60. Avengers: Infinity War
Similar thing with this movie as with Endgame. Thanos is a horrible villain thinks, he will save creatures from hunger if he kills half the creatures. This logic is very stupid, because a thing called natural selection exists. Half of them would die anyway, also killing half the creatures doen't solve anything at all, because after many years planets will again become overpopulated so it's useless... instead he could have made infinite food resourses, peace and other stuff... Oh yea and that kind of weakling fans are marvel fans(sorry if sounded offensive)? Crying over the deaths of characters who were already predicted to be revived in the next movie because it is a marvel movie. Of course, all or most of them are gonna be revived, else they couldn't make sequels... I'll admit Thanos vs avengers fight was epic, but thats' about it. Also Dr Strange saying that were is only one way they could win really clishe and illogical, there thousand of ways they could win (hoe infinity war should have ended youtube, for example)
62. Django Unchained
Pretty good, tons of blood, great music.
63. The Shining
Really awesome, but dissapointing. I really wish that in the end Jack Nicholson and Wife changed roles. I mean that Jack became good and wife evil, it would have been a great twist. If that was the case you could theorize if Jack really turned back good and is the boy realy safe.
Really good animated movie
65. Princess Mononoke
Masterpiece, the characters are really amazing, one of the best anime movies about true love.
10/10 2nd my favourite anime movie
I know most will disagree, but hollywood remake is much better than this. In this all characters are weird, dialogues are weird, people act like not human beings. It's very weird movie. American version on the other hand is amazing thriller in my opinion. I'll give it that twist is one of the best I've seen, ever. By the way I watched american version first and if I did watch original first I couldn't understand most of the stuff happening, cause it's storytelling is very unclear.
3/10 (9/10 american version)
Much better than original, but it's only a decent action movie. Ending is amazing, but everything else is generic. People just lost their sh*t, because they didn't expext so many exenomorphs after the first movie having only one
69. The Dark Knight Rises
Really dissapointing sequel. Bane is far not as good of a villain as the joker. Also Bane is killed by cat woman, and is shot down... Expected much better.
70. American Beauty
Very meaningful movie about life. It teaches important lessons, though, many things in this movie are questionable if realistic.
71. Once Upon a Time in America
Would have been fantastic movie, even better than Godfather, but they had to make the 4th hour. First 3 hours are masterpiece in music and cinematography, characters are amazing and plot is great. Last hour is very boring, ultra boring, "nothing" happens. Especially then this movie had a perfect potencial ending after 3rd hour.
Really charming and great plot.
8/10 12th my favourite animated movie.
74. Citizen Kane
Very boring story. Full of awesome special effects.
Best movie ever made. Mel Gibson is one of the best actors and irectors of all time. Anyway, it is a 3h long epic story of fighting for FREEDOM!!! It's romantic, great action scenes packed. Soundtrack is very beautiful and it has one of the best endings ever.
10/10 1st my favourite movie.
Fantastic, hitchcock's best. Weird, yet cool story, very interresting special effects.
77. North by Northwest
The first two thirds are really good, then 3rd third is not so much.
78. Reservoir Dogs
79. Your Name.
Amazing love story, though full of plot holes and barely logical. Also ending couldve lasted longer, I know it was intentional end, but wish they showed a bit that happened next.
9/10 12th my favourite anime movie
Yet again, amazing for it's time, but now very primitive. Also it promotes liberalism...
83. Requiem for a Dream
Great story, intentionnaly stupid characters. I guess learn from their mistakes.
86. 2001: A Space Odyssey
Boring. The first half hour was very interresting, then it went very very slow pace. Yeat again amazing special effects for it's time.
87. Toy Story
Good, but not one of my favourites. Woody is way too much self ego.
89. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
Very weird and unique, yet tells us that people don't learn from their mistakes, like at all
90. Lawrence of Arabia
Pretty good, well that's about it.
91. A Clockwork Orange
Masterpiece, very meaningful. It's very shocking movie accually. Malcolm McDowell is amazing actor.
10/10 32th my favourite movie.
Really good, but it's a great adventure movie, while people claim it's romantic. Yes there are romance there and there, but really not much.
95. Inglourious Basterds
great, it sucks that lots of my lovable actors die in the middle of the movie.
96. Taxi Driver
Trash, very unbelievable character developement. Average crime movie at best.
97. Full Metal Jacket
The first half is really good, when it turns into mediocre war movie
102. The Sting
Charming, great plot, nice style, but it takes a while until it gets somethere.
104. Toy Story 3
Em... Similar to Toy Story 1, I prefer first one.
Amazing, it has very interresting camera work and storytelling. It's really good.
10/10 honorable mention of my favourite movies
Best character developement ever. This movie is epic. Ending is iconic.
10/10 15th my favourite movie.
107. For a Few Dollars More
110. Monty Python and the Holy Grail
It's weird, it's jokes are either very funny or I don't understand them at all.
111. L.A. Confidential
Average crime movie. Ending has lots of action, makes it's theme less serious suddenly.
Great animated movie, very good character developement.
9/10 8th my favourite animated movie
117. Batman Begins
Amazing, my favourite of the trilogy.
Well, I don't know how to rate this. It's the story of last Hitler's moments. It's historicaly accurate, but it's pretty boring.
5/10 (not sure though)
122. Die Hard
One of the best action movies of all time. Everything is awesome about it - action, characters, villains...
10/10 Honorable mention of my favourite movies.
really overlong, there's barely any action in this action movie and it's story is very average.
126. Green Book
Amazing, similar to American History X a bit.
129. The Great Escape
It's fine, iconic story, but not very tense, again hard to rate, cause it's true story.
130. Children of Heaven
A story about a poor family. In the end boy wins the race, but didn't win the place and prize he wanted. the end. what? Everything until the end was pretty dencent, but the end is dumb.
131. Pan's Labyrinth
Masterpiece. The story is wonderful, this movie is very beautiful and violent at the same time, the contrast is great, true art.
Really good detective movie.
133. My Neighbor Totoro
Very mediocre. Story is like - two girls met a spirit, got lost in the wood and spirit brought them home.
136. Howl's Moving Castle
Masterpiece, it is unpredictable, weird and very unique, it's a magical love story.
10/10 8th my favourite anime movie.
141. A Beautiful Mind
Okay, it's okay.
143. Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels
Same as Snatch, but better. Camera work and storytelling is one of the best ever.
10/10 honorable mention of my favourite movies.
145. The Seventh Seal
146. Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri
Something fresh lately, unique story, it doesn't end how you think it would. I just wish the movie ended when they met the potencial rapist, not at when they were driving to the potential rapist
9/10 honorable mention of my favourite movies
150. Inside Out
Fantastic family animated movie.
9/10 5th my favourite animated movie
Trash. It was interresting until the boy got out, then it become very boring. Tommy Wisseau's version is much better in both storyline and entertainment
157. No Country for Old Men
Interresting, but dissapointing. It really sucks that we didn't get to see how the sheriff died. Also it ends without conclusion.
162. The Sixth Sense
It has many great scenes, the scene when boy told his mo about his powers was very touching. But this movie is full of plot holes and the twist is crap. It is easily predicted at the restaurant scene, it's ultra hinting.
165. The Thing
Best action horror movie ever. Ending is possibly the best ending ever made, that drink test was very smart.
10/10 17th my favourite movie
Amazing, very good crime movie. Ending is shockingly good.
10/10 honorable mention of my favourite movies
171. Shutter Island
It's very smart, but pretty bland. It's only worth watching for the end.
172. The Big Lebowski
The first half was extremely funny, then the movie turned weird and not funny anymore.
173. Kill Bill: Vol. 1
Awesome, violent, funny.
179. Hacksaw Ridge
great war movie
181. How to Train Your Dragon
Very mediocre, nothing special for me.
182. Gone Girl
Really mediocre detective movie with sh*tty ending
184. The Truman Show
Masterpiece. Plot is very unique and the whole story is heartouching. It's really good.
10/10 19th my favourite movie.
Masterpiece. The only flaw is that the 10 minutes of begginning and the end are pure slowniness, just so overlong, basicly a character says a sentence and then it's silence for 10 seconds. Same happens in the whole middle, but there you have a fantastic cinematography and sightviews, also it supposed to be slow, but beggining and ending really should have been faster pased.
187. The Grand Budapest Hotel
The style is very unique, enviorements are interresting, but plotwise nothing tooo interresting
189. Stand by Me
Great kid's movie, similar to Goonies. Ending is dissapointing and stupid though
190. Into the Wild
Great story about a man who fought against modernism, he wanted to live in the wild, feel the freedom and stuff.
195. Monty Python's Life of Brian
Same as Holy Grail, very funny, but some jokes are plain weird and ununderstandable to me.
really good story of revenge. It's very long so watch when you have a lot of free time.
198. 12 Years a Slave
Heartouching story. Very good
10/10 honorable mention of my favourite movies
200. Hotel Rwanda
Really good. Heartouching story about rasism and how useless united nations are
201. Before Sunrise
really average romance movie
202. Neon Genesis Evangelion: The End of Evangelion
Awesome. Truly art. Action packed pshichological thriller, never seen anything like this before. Ending is shocking, amazing it is.
10/10 14th my favourite anime movie
I really like Hugh Jackman's performance, also torture scenes are awesome. But it is overlong and ending sucks.
205. Mad Max: Fury Road
It's fine, original mad max is hundred times better though
Wow. I'm surprised. This is the best Marvel superhero movie yet. It's perfect exept for the ending death, the death itself is lame, I bet it was survivable.
10/10 26th my favourite movie.
Trash. A movie about the things everyone is well avare of. Very boring and ends at a place there it could have had become interresting.
214. Catch Me If You Can
217. Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind
It's very similar to other Ghibli films, but far not as good.
218. The Princess Bride
Really charming unusual look at fairytales, I think it's a parody of classic fairytales, but it's more than that.
Okay. Motivational, but could have been better
227. The Terminator
Masterpiece, one of the best romance movies ever made, it also works as a great thriller and action movie too.
10/10 27th my favourite movie.
232. Donnie Darko
One of the worst movies I've ever seen. Boring to hell and ending is an insult. (yes, I understood everything that happened, Don't you even dare to tell your stupid argument about "you're too stupid to understand it")
235. Groundhog Day
One of the best time travel and romance movies ever made.
10/10 9th my favourtie movie of all time.
Very boring for most part. it's more of a drama than a horror movie. Yet again it has amazing special effect for it's time.
239. Guardians of the Galaxy
Yet another Marvel movie, this one's really mediocre.
240. Before Sunset
It's nothing like original. original was a romantic movie about a whole date in one day for two people who will never meet again after, in this one it's just a talk betwen them about that happened after the first movie. Really lazy and boring. I can give it 2 points for a few good jokes they have put in. Very lazy movie.
241. Castle in the Sky
Amazing, anime classic. Yet another true love anime movies.
10/10 7th my favourite anime movie
246. The Exorcist
Best horror movie ever made. It's really creepy and shocking. It's awesome. It is not afraid of swearing and such things.
