Movies I've Seen, Ranked
1. Free Fire
    I thought this was just going to be my favorite scene of the year and then it turned out the scene -is- the movie. It's hilariously bumbling and drawn out.
2. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2
    I liked Kurt Russell, especially liked Michael Rooker, and there was humor, but I think I enjoyed the first one more.
3. Logan
    I liked this plenty, though I still prefer Logan's first movie appearance, and I wasn't as blown away as other movie fans were. It's an unfortunate quiet ending for two greats.
4. Sleepless
    This would have been a generic action flick, but there is a kickass fight scene between Foxx and Monaghan. I think this is my favorite performance of her career.
5. Get Out
    Solid social/psychological thriller, but the sci-fi twist kind of lost me. Kaluuya's acting is excellent.
6. The LEGO Batman Movie
    Funny, but the LEGO Movie itself was funnier.
7. John Wick: Chapter Two
    The gunplay is impressive, sure, but the side characters are more interesting than Wick. His brawl with Cassian is pretty epic.
8. Beauty and the Beast (2017)
    Nicely produced. Watson's singing isn't as refined as the animated version but that's okay. Luke Evans is pretty good.
9. Split
    This is a nifty concept and McAvoy and Taylor-Joy put in good performances, but I wanted more from the monster.
10. Kong: Skull Island
    Better than Godzilla, and the big fights are amusing. Dialogue and acting is fairly hokey.
11. Life (2017)
    Dammit, why do movie astronauts (Prometheus too) keep poking fingers at unknown life forms?! Decent thriller.
12. Collide
    Lots of great acting talent, weak dialogue, generic thriller. There may be some good chase action but I glazed over it.
13. Fist Fight
    I like the idea of updating 3 O'Clock High but there were maybe two scenes that made me laugh a little. Jillian Bell didn't click like she did in 22 Jump Street.
14. The Space Between Us
    Britt Robertson may be good but I didn't like her character at all. I liked Gary Oldman's relaxed persona a lot.
15. The Fate of the Furious
    The prison break/riot is pretty good. The scene with Jason Statham and the baby is either run or just ludicrous.
16. A Dog's Purpose
    Pleasant and adorable at times, but you can get that faster with pet videos on YouTube. It's not as sad as the trailers suggest.
17. The Zookeeper's Wife
    An interesting bit of history but I didn't click with the acting.
18. CHiPs
    About equal with Let's Be Cops - moments of funny.
19. xXx: The Return of Xander Cage
    Donnie Yen's action scenes are probably the best part. Toni Collette looks more grumpy than intimidating.
20. Rock Dog
    Sing! was better, but this was a lot better than Norm of the North. I did like Eddie Izzard's cat.
21. Ghost in the Shell (2017)
    Not very sexy, not very exciting, and the theme actually felt dated. Most of the Philip K. Dick stories in film are more interesting than this.
22. Underworld: Blood Wars
    Generic action entry with some new lore for the fans and a new coven location with some nifty effects.
23. Gold
    This movie tries hard to make you feel the passion for gold discovery but it just didn't click with me.
24. Resident Evil: The Final Chapter
    Both this and Underworld have notably long exposition intros. It's pretty much a tie between the two movies for quality.
25. Power Rangers (2017)
    I think I'd give this the edge over the Ninja Turtles for lack of terrible dialogue, but the robot comedic relief was annoying.
26. The Great Wall
    The set design is nifty and Pedro Pascal is cool, but the rest isn't up to Zhang Yimou's best work. Certainly not Damon's.
27. The Bye Bye Man
    There are some frights at the beginning but the decisions just get dumb at the end and he's no longer scary.
28. A Cure for Wellness
    Shutter Island was better in this genre but neither film makes me want to see them again.
29. Rings
    I liked it for the investigative aspect of the story, but that also slowed the pace and left little room for scares. Bye Bye Man was scarier.
30. Monster Trucks
    I've outgrown the demo that would enjoy this.
31. Fifty Shades Darker
    Oh please.
32. The Shack
