Toy Story 1995,  G)
Toy Story
An absolutely groundbreaking achievement with some of the most lovable characters of all time.
Toy Story 2 1999,  G)
Toy Story 2
The first animated sequel to be as good as the original masterpiece.
Toy Story 3 2010,  G)
Toy Story 3
The direction of this film is a perfect following off of the time gap since the original two and once again achieves perfect character development.
No Country for Old Men 2007,  R)
No Country for Old Men
The complexity appears in simple tension, but is crafted so well and delivered so uniquely that the result is unusually amazing.
Alien 1979,  R)
Suspenseful and simple in the cleverest way possible.
Aliens 1986,  R)
Amazing; a true spectacle of action, suspense and an elaborate expanse off of the original film.
Alien3 1992,  R)
The whole film feels like a tagged on addition to the franchise with nothing new to offer and subpar aspects in almost every place.
Alien Resurrection 1997,  R)
Alien Resurrection
This film was certainly, unnecessarily tagged on, but it is much more entertaining than Alien3. The most under-noticed aspect of the film is Sigourney Weaver's powerful acting performance during the flamethrower scene. That one bit of spark is sadly not enough to make this film good though.
Prometheus 2012,  R)
Very well shaped and intriguing, the fact that it doesn't answer many questions to the Alien franchise doesn't make it any less entertaining.
X-Men: First Class 2011,  PG-13)
X-Men: First Class
A great introduction to the X-Men universe, this movie's strength in it's script shows easily throughout the film.
X-Men Origins - Wolverine 2009,  PG-13)
X-Men Origins - Wolverine
Yes, the narrative is slightly familiar, but this X-men movie shows you what you've been craving from the other 3 you never got: Purely action scenes, and Wolverine in his full potential where you can see everything he is capable of.
X-Men 2000,  PG-13)
X2: X-Men United 2003,  PG-13)
V for Vendetta 2006,  R)
V for Vendetta
This film turned out to be nothing like I thought it would, and that's a good thing. The performances were interesting, convincing, and my whole rating could easily be just for Hugo Weaving's amazing "V" monologue.
Watchmen 2009,  R)
It is a very interesting, fairly original storyline, but there are so many mood changes, so awkwardly entwined, with so many nuances in the logic, that this film just does not resonate that well.
Batman Begins 2005,  PG-13)
Batman Begins
It's really a great backstory explanation on how Batman can actually fight and where he had his training. Him being a ninja explains his agility, tricks and so on. It's a really fresh take on a Batman origin story, and how he got his start. Easily the best reboot of Batman in existence.
The Dark Knight 2008,  PG-13)
The Dark Knight Rises 2012,  PG-13)
The Dark Knight Rises
An excellently done conclusion, this film exceeds Batman Begins and The Dark Knight in its ultimate storytelling
Michael Clayton 2007,  R)
Michael Clayton
Even with only a couple spots of true action, this film's characters and plot are engaging enough to sell the whole package.
Fight Club 1999,  R)
Fight Club
Incredibly interesting, the unconventional aspects really keep the audience's attention sparked.
Kick-Ass 2010,  R)
You get pulled into this film more than I thought you would. It's creative, despite it's violence and swearing (being the 2 average things to knock a PG-13 into R). It makes me think of Spider-man mixed with anything Seth Rogan or Michael Cera are in.
Spider-Man 2002,  PG-13)
The Amazing Spider-Man 2012,  PG-13)
The Amazing Spider-Man
Andrew Garfield portrays Peter Parker eons better than Tobey McGuire did. His character is much more believable, and his lines feel much more natural. The entire origin story and way things came to be make much more sense in a believable Sci-Fi sort of way. This version is a much more realistic and gritty take on the franchise.
Spider-Man 3 2007,  PG-13)
Spider-Man 2 2004,  PG-13)
Inception 2010,  PG-13)
Extremely well written in a clever way. I would honestly, if you'd categorize this in Action, put it right underneath the Bourne Trilogy
The Matrix 1999,  R)
The Matrix Reloaded 2003,  R)
The Matrix Revolutions 2003,  R)
Captain America: The First Avenger 2011,  PG-13)
Captain America: The First Avenger
I thought I would sit on reviewing this until a week after I saw it to really think about it and not go off of "the moment" impulsive reviewing. This film is actually really good. It surprised me, seeing that a soldier in tights can be taken dead seriously fighting Nazis. But... it can (and he's not in tights; It's more of a padded suit with the basic colors but in a more rustic color scheme of the original). It's a period superhero movie, and it actually worked out well. It's an interesting storyline, and the ending actually IS NOT cliche, which I found incredibly surprising, seeing that you can predict most superhero movie outcomes. I recommend this film, definitely.
Thor 2011,  PG-13)
I thought this movie was going to be good, and it was. It is really good. It certainly defies the laws of most superhero movies, being the average guy-in-new-york-or-equivalent-becomes-super plot. He is a god from another realm that gets banished to Earth and then meets a complete hotty scientist who changes him. The story is good, the visual effects are great, the dialogue is interesting and the characters are likable. Chris Hemsworth does a great job, and of course Natalie Portman is great as well.
Marvel's The Avengers 2012,  PG-13)
Marvel's The Avengers
The way that every character has a lot of development, they each stay true to their personalities, the script is so cleverly interwoven, the action is clear and perfect, and the movie somehow achieves such an insane amount of non-stop jokes while remaining completely uncheesy makes this film absolutely incredible.
The Bourne Legacy 2012,  PG-13)
The Bourne Legacy
I came into watching this film doubting it could every carry on the story of Bourne. I was mostly right, considering this film tried so hard to tie itself into the Bourne franchise that they momentarily tricked their audience into actually believing it was worthy of hopping on as a 4th film. In retrospect, if Bourne was never mentioned, it would ultimately come off as a Bourne knockoff. Although this is true, the film does supply enough Bourne-esque satisfaction that it will probably follow suit of Star Wars' prequel trilogy: Being entertaining for what it is, but ultimately falling short of the original trilogy
The Bourne Ultimatum 2007,  PG-13)
The Bourne Identity 2002,  PG-13)
The Bourne Supremacy 2004,  PG-13)
Gran Torino 2009,  R)
