I'll never forget watching this at midnight release with my friends. I think this was the first time that I truly felt like I had made a group of friends that I could be myself around. What an awesome end to a fantastic character.
2. The Road (I) (2009)
R | 111 min | Adventure, Drama
In a dangerous post-apocalyptic world, an ailing father defends his son as they slowly travel to the sea.
Votes: 207,337 | Gross: $0.06M
Pretty much a staple for me - such a sad but fulfilling story. I remember the first time I watched it when it came out with my dad - it just resonated with me about how much I love him. It's found even deeper meaning with me though as my friend Connor also loves it.
3. Guardians of the Galaxy (2014)
PG-13 | 121 min | Action, Adventure, Comedy
A group of intergalactic criminals must pull together to stop a fanatical warrior with plans to purge the universe.
Votes: 942,765 | Gross: $333.18M
Brought me out of a dark time - I remember watching it for the first time with my brother in 2014 near my birthday. I don't speak with my brother a hell of a lot, but comic books and stuff are one of the few things that we bond over. I'll never forget it.
4. Chef (2014)

5. Whiplash (2014)

Votes: 777,466 | Gross: $154.06M
I remember watching this in a cinema when it first came out and everything from the lore of this new world to the action just had me hooked for the entire thing. I distinctly remember the smell of my new aftershave, the movie made me feel pumped :P
8. Chappie (2015)

Votes: 213,241 | Gross: $31.57M
As with Elysium I found this film completely astounding when it came out, it hasn't aged super well but it's still an enjoyable watch.
9. Elysium (I) (2013)
R | 109 min | Action, Drama, Sci-Fi
In the year 2154, the very wealthy live on a man-made space station while the rest of the population resides on a ruined Earth. A man takes on a mission that could bring equality to the polarized worlds.
Votes: 394,655 | Gross: $93.05M
Completely blew me away when I first watched it in cinemas at about 15, hasn't aged too well but I will always remember it.
10. Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (2016)
PG-13 | 133 min | Action, Adventure, Sci-Fi
The daughter of an Imperial scientist joins the Rebel Alliance in a risky move to steal the Death Star plans.
Votes: 476,202 | Gross: $532.18M
It was a pretty good star wars movie, possibly my favourite. If you're wandering why it's only seven stars, I don't really like Star Wars that much. Earns an extra star for the Vader scene.
11. Good Time (2017)
R | 101 min | Crime, Drama, Thriller
After a botched bank robbery lands his younger brother in prison, Connie Nikas embarks on a twisted odyssey through New York City's underworld to get his brother Nick out of jail.

PG-13 | 102 min | Drama, Mystery, Thriller

Fantastic film with twists and turns all along the way - loved it.
13. Green Room (2015)
R | 95 min | Horror, Music, Thriller
A punk rock band is forced to fight for survival after witnessing a murder at a neo-Nazi skinhead bar.
Votes: 90,303 | Gross: $3.22M
Completely took me by surprise, the slow start just adds to the explosive excitement of the second half.
14. The Thing (1982)
R | 109 min | Horror, Mystery, Sci-Fi
A research team in Antarctica is hunted by a shape-shifting alien that assumes the appearance of its victims.
Votes: 329,933 | Gross: $13.78M
Gross, unnatural, and a psychological terror. I've never had so much fun feeling all of those emotions. Watched it for the first time with my dad at the age of 19.
15. Bird Box (2018)
R | 124 min | Drama, Horror, Sci-Fi
Five years after an ominous unseen presence drives most of society to suicide, a mother and her two children make a desperate bid to reach safety.
Not your average thriller movie, as it doesn't turn into an action flick by the end. Sticks to its themes all throughout, and actually made me feel quite a lot by the end of it. A surprise, but a welcome one to be sure.
16. The Ballad of Buster Scruggs (2018)
R | 133 min | Comedy, Drama, Musical
Six tales of life and violence in the Old West, following a singing gunslinger, a bank robber, a traveling impresario, an elderly prospector, a wagon train, and a perverse pair of bounty hunters.
Even though it's only getting a 7, I fucking loved this movie. The first tale of B.S. had me howling, and I equally adored the tale of the gold panner. If the movie ended there, it would be getting a 10, but sadly the other stories within this movie just didn't resonate with me. Do love a good western though.
17. Black Mirror: Bandersnatch (2018)
TV-MA | 90 min | Drama, Mystery, Sci-Fi
In 1984, a young programmer begins to question reality as he works to adapt a fantasy novel into a video game.
The age-old choose your own adventure format has always intrigued me to no end, and the mixture of that as well as the direction of Charlie Brooker have only ended with good results. A great experience all round, the only lacking part though is that it leaves me wanting more - I do wish that there could have been a few less questions and a few more answers by the end of it.
18. Prisoners (2013)
R | 153 min | Crime, Drama, Mystery
When Keller Dover's daughter and her friend go missing, he takes matters into his own hands as the police pursue multiple leads and the pressure mounts.
Votes: 524,285 | Gross: $61.00M
A movie that left me feeling very strange - I enjoyed Hugh Jackman's performance probably the most with this movie, but as it got closer to the end I think it got a bit more convoluted and left me with a lot of information I wasn't quite sure how to unpack. I liked it nonetheless, but I wish it was more clear.
19. The Hateful Eight (2015)
R | 168 min | Crime, Drama, Mystery
In the dead of a Wyoming winter, a bounty hunter and his prisoner find shelter in a cabin currently inhabited by a collection of nefarious characters.
Votes: 432,238 | Gross: $54.12M
I've watched this movie twice and I believe I've got the full experience from it. It's wonderfully made for first time viewings, but I feel like it may go a bit over the top with the whole revenge porn thing.
20. Annihilation (2018)
R | 115 min | Adventure, Drama, Horror
A biologist signs up for a dangerous, secret expedition into a mysterious zone where the laws of nature don't apply.
Votes: 226,273 | Gross: $32.73M
The best eldritch horror film I have ever seen, slow at the start but utterly fantastic. I was in awe at the climax at the end, couldn't recommend it more.
21. Arrival (II) (2016)
PG-13 | 116 min | Drama, Mystery, Sci-Fi
A linguist works with the military to communicate with alien lifeforms after twelve mysterious spacecraft appear around the world.
Votes: 511,839 | Gross: $100.55M
Starts off slow and slightly confusing, but give it time and you'll realise that the tone, plot, and music are absolutely phenomenal. The only thing that held it back was some of the clunky dialogue, that and the child actor is pretty wack.
22. Dead Space (2008 Video Game)
M | Action, Adventure, Horror
Engineer Isaac Clarke and his crew get stranded on a large, abandoned mining ship. There, Clarke needs to repair the giant ship while battling nasty aliens and solving the mystery of what happened to the ship.
A very slow paced psychological horror - I really enjoyed it. The combat is great.
23. Limmy's Show! (2009– )
LIMMY'S SHOW is a Scottish comedy sketch show written, animated and directed by BRIAN LIMOND. The most blisteringly original sketch show on television. LIMMY goes to places other sketch ... See full summary »
Loved it from start to finish, absolutely hilarious. I quote it all the time.
24. Stranger Things (2016– )
TV-14 | 51 min | Drama, Fantasy, Horror
When a young boy disappears, his mother, a police chief, and his friends must confront terrifying forces in order to get him back.
I thought it was okay, definitely not amazing. Funny at some points, but S2 really drags it down hard. Felt like it got really predictable.
25. The Banner Saga (2014 Video Game)
Adventure, Fantasy, Mystery
Fantasy role playing video game where players control two groups, each represented by the banner they carry.
All 3 games were great - I'd wholeheartedly recommend these games to anybody. Story and gameplay are both fantastic.
26. Wojna krwi: Wiedzminskie opowiesc (2018 Video Game)
Action, Adventure, Drama
From the creators of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt comes a brand new tale set in the brutal and twisted universe of witcher Geralt of Rivia.
My favourite game of 2018 - for a card game, CD Projekt Red outdid themselves yet again. The music, the gameplay, the story - fantastic.
27. Metro 2033 (2010 Video Game)
M | Action, Adventure, Horror
Man has fallen, struggling to survive within Moscow's metro. In the face of a new mysterious threat young Artyom must leave his home station for the first time, making a dangerous journey to the legendary Polis to enlist their help.
Relatively fun game, didn't have a lot of substance to it though. Relatively competitive, would recommend playing the redux version.
28. Blade Runner 2049 (2017)
R | 164 min | Drama, Mystery, Sci-Fi
A young blade runner's discovery of a long-buried secret leads him to track down former blade runner Rick Deckard, who's been missing for thirty years.

Better than the original :^)

During the Iraq War, a Sergeant recently assigned to an army bomb squad is put at odds with his squad mates due to his maverick way of handling his work.
Votes: 391,538 | Gross: $17.02M
A lot of powerful scenes in this movie, especially with Sanborne. Dragged down by a few unnecessary action scenes.
31. Dallas Buyers Club (2013)
R | 117 min | Biography, Drama
In 1985 Dallas, electrician and hustler Ron Woodroof works around the system to help AIDS patients get the medication they need after he is diagnosed with the disease.
Votes: 401,316 | Gross: $27.30M
I came back to this movie after a long while - couldn't stomach the emotions it was throwing at me at first. Definitely worth the watch though, magnificent performances by Leto and McConaughey.
32. Looper (2012)
R | 113 min | Action, Crime, Drama
In 2074, when the mob wants to get rid of someone, the target is sent into the past, where a hired gun awaits - someone like Joe - who one day learns the mob wants to 'close the loop' by sending back Joe's future self for assassination.
Votes: 499,583 | Gross: $66.49M
Very interesting world and setting - I wish they'd explored the time travelling and the actual loopers more though, the second half of the movie dragged it into the dirt. I couldn't stand the child character.
33. From Dusk Till Dawn (1996)
R | 108 min | Action, Crime, Horror
Two criminals and their hostages unknowingly seek temporary refuge in a truck stop populated by vampires, with chaotic results.
Votes: 260,137 | Gross: $25.75M
If you're gonna watch this movie go into it blind - it's one of my favourite Tarantino titles.
34. Avengers: Endgame (2019)
PG-13 | 181 min | Action, Adventure, Sci-Fi
After the devastating events of Avengers: Infinity War (2018), the universe is in ruins. With the help of remaining allies, the Avengers assemble once more in order to undo Thanos' actions and restore order to the universe.
Votes: 407,828 | Gross: $779.43M
A lot of surprises in this movie - if you can watch this without spoilers you're fairly lucky. Only wish it could have gave some more characters some space in the light.
