@SoNin360: I really want to pick up the Mad Max game at some point. It sounds like a good game for the usual summer gaming drought. Fury Road is a must-see.

@SloganYams: It is pretty sad that Wall-E and Ratatouille seem to be the two most forgotten Pixar movies. I hadn't really thought about that before. Everything up to The Incredibles seems to be chalked up as a classic, while Up, TS3, and now Inside Out seem to be the modern favorites. Everything else from Pixar does kind of seem to be neglected.

Totally hear you about BvS. There's a lot they can improve on going forward. But at least they seem to have the characters right, which is probably the most important thing considering how ambitious (perhaps overly ambitious) their future movie schedule is.

I'm interested to see if any of Rogue One will show up in Battlefront. That game is still sorely lacking in content to bring people back. Judging from the trailer, the tone fits perfectly too.

I've never heard of Gotham City Racer and it's probably a good thing I haven't. But hey, at least it looks like they were trying with that one. Judging by the video, there's a good game in there somewhere. My vote goes to Superman 64. I've never played it but I have seen some really, really bad videos of people not even being able to get past the first level.

@SloganYams: I can completely understand that about BvS. It being overcrowded is my only major trepidation. It somewhat reminds me of Spider-Man 3 in that regard. There were parts in Spider-Man 3 that were as good as anything the trilogy did. As a whole, there was way too much going on, leading up to a rushed finish despite it being like a 3 hour film. On the other hand, DC approaching pre-existing characters and not waiting for them to team up is exciting. If they were to follow Marvel's path and give everyone an origin story before the JL movies, it could wind up being boring. And because Green Lantern really set them back, there's not a whole lot they can do. I don't know, it will be interesting to see how it all plays out.

And yes, the second half of the list is packed with animated films :P

@SloganYams: Thanks. And yeah, I had a really difficult time placing Inside Out. It's one of the newest movies on here and it's going against movies I've seen multiple times. I actually had to revise my list after only recently watching it by placing it between two movies. That's as I high as I could place it for now.

I don't see it as surprising necessarily. Their biggest (and pretty much only) properties are Call of Duty, Destiny, Skylanders, and their Blizzard stuff. Blizzard has its own dedicated crowd, Skylanders is big for kids, and Destiny is too old to get people excited for DLC and too recent for a sequel. The only surprise will be the lack of Call of Duty. It's big enough to not need E3 for Activision's sake, but it's always been a big "get" for either Sony or Microsoft to show their demo on their stage and announce a bundle, timed DLC, etc.

And hey, who knows, this all could still mean that Activision could partner with Sony, MS, or Nintendo for their pre-E3 conferences.

That's my take anyway.

@SloganYams: Wow, that completely got by me about the screenplay awards. And I don't know about wins, but I could certainly get behind nominations for each. I think that there should be a single unisex award for best voice performance. It's important and requires much talent to stand out. And it even goes beyond animation. Think Scarlett Johansson in "Her."

@SloganYams:

Completely agree with what you said the Oscars. With Inside Out, it was nice to see it get nominated for Best Original Screenplay, which I think might have been a first for an animated movie. But that's just it. I feel like animated movies are at a huge disadvantage come award season. Yes, they have their own award, but the only other awards they could be nominated for are best picture, writing, art direction (something I'm shocked they are never nominated for), score (again), song. Maybe director, but I think that award is more deserved for what they have to do on a set opposed to inside a studio. I think that Amy Poehler did an incredible job voicing Joy, maybe one of the best voice performances I've ever heard. But voice alone will never get anyone nominated. But I do think that performance capture could and should make its way into the fold. At this point, I'm rambling but I do agree that animated movies are sadly basically forced to sit at their own table in the corner of the room when they really shouldn't be.

With Two Towers, I just think it has too much action. Helm's Deep is one of the greatest battles in movie history but I just always feel like the plot gets nowhere in the movie every time I watch it. I'm a huge Fellowship fan. I love the opening so much. As for ROTJ, I like Luke's part of the story and how he kind of does his own thing throughout it. But whenever it shifts away from him, I think the movie is just okay. I'm not an Endor fan and the second Death Star run was honestly pretty lame I felt. I do really like the movie overall but compared to the other two...

@Bumblebee1138: Haha, building this list was difficult initially. But I've been keeping track of it and tuning it for a couple years now. It's actually been pretty fun.

And yeah, I've never been a huge Two Towers fan as much as I love the other two LOTR movies.
