It's not that I LOVED this movie, but it really creeped me out and it's something I will remember for a long time.

Votes: 429,702 | Gross: $334.20M

Actually I remember not wanting to give Tom Holland a chance as the new Spiderman, but I was wrong. He's so amazing in this role; the story was nice, too.

4. Baby Driver (2017)

86 Metascore

Votes: 40,732

I think a lot of people (including me) expected a hardcore horror movie and not a satirical take on art-people and I think that's why this movie didn't receive as much attention. Jake Gyllenhaal blew me away!

6. What We Do in the Shadows (2014)

R | 86 min | Comedy, Horror

76 Metascore

Viago, Deacon and Vladislav are vampires who are finding that modern life has them struggling with the mundane - like paying rent, keeping up with the chore wheel, trying to get into nightclubs and overcoming flatmate conflicts.

Directors: Jemaine Clement, Taika Waititi | Stars: Jemaine Clement, Taika Waititi, Cori Gonzalez-Macuer, Jonny Brugh

Votes: 127,066 | Gross: $3.33M

I watched this movie on a plane and found it very difficult not to laugh out loud!

Pretty sure people WANTED this movie to fail. I watched it on my birthday and really, really liked it. I still hope, they can make a sequel.

8. Kong: Skull Island (2017)

PG-13 | 118 min | Action, Adventure, Fantasy

62 Metascore

108 min | Mystery, Thriller

Director: Oriol Paulo | Stars: Jose Coronado, Hugo Silva, Belén Rueda, Aura Garrido

Votes: 44,632

I remember reading somewhere that no one ever guessed the end correctly before the climax and I was like " difficult can it be?" and...well...even I -a hardcore movielover- guessed wrong on how this movie would end! The first 10 rating I gave this year.

11. The Gay Deceivers (1969)

"They're MARIGOLDS!" Oh, how many times did I watch this vine? The movie is on YouTube and I'd recommend everyone who's into weird comedies to check it out.

12. Hotel Artemis (2018)

R | 94 min | Action, Drama, Sci-Fi

58 Metascore

Set in riot-torn, near-future Los Angeles, 'Hotel Artemis' follows the Nurse, who runs a secret, members-only emergency room for criminals.

Director: Drew Pearce | Stars: Jodie Foster, Sofia Boutella, Dave Bautista, Sterling K. Brown

Votes: 31,040 | Gross: $6.71M

Another movie pretty much no one saw? I Loved the whole world in this movie and was really impressed by Jodie Foster. When Jeff Goldblum turned up and started cursing, I was convinced.

Votes: 155,602 | Gross: $103.14M

Better than people want to admit. A solid action movie with a nice cast and cool effects. The only thing I didn't like, though, was the rushed ending of the movie.

14. Zoolander (2001)

PG-13 | 90 min | Comedy

61 Metascore

Can you believe it took me nearly 18 years to watch this movie? Not really hot right now.

41 Metascore

Votes: 169,622 | Gross: $39.18M

Critics can suck a d*ck. This movie was bomb.

16. Captain Marvel (2019)

PG-13 | 123 min | Action, Adventure, Sci-Fi

64 Metascore

Directors: Anna Boden, Ryan Fleck | Stars: Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson, Ben Mendelsohn, Jude Law

Votes: 309,859 | Gross: $426.75M

"I don't have to prove anything to you." Such a powerful line. Really made me fall in love with Carol, even though I didn't want to. I guess Marvel just knows how to play the game.

17. Venom (2018)

PG-13 | 112 min | Action, Sci-Fi, Thriller

35 Metascore

Votes: 280,049 | Gross: $213.52M

I read somewhere that you either love this movie or you hate it. I LOVED it. Loved the whole concept behind it, Tom Hardy and just Venom in general.

A movie I wanted to see for the longest time and only got around to it when it appeared on Netflix. It's fantastic!

19. Atomic Blonde (2017)

R | 115 min | Action, Mystery, Thriller

63 Metascore

Director: David Leitch | Stars: Charlize Theron, James McAvoy, John Goodman, Eddie Marsan

Votes: 151,011 | Gross: $51.57M

Another movie that I had to wait for, but it was worth it. Very stylish and I enjoyed Theron as this absolut badass, who is human at the same time.

This one's a suprise actually. I stumbled upon it on Amazon Prime and enjoyed it a lot. It was suprisingly creepy at times and sometimes even funny.

21. Avengers: Endgame (2019)

Votes: 456,765 | Gross: $834.60M

Director: Brad Bird | Stars: Craig T. Nelson, Holly Hunter, Sarah Vowell, Huck Milner

Votes: 205,581 | Gross: $608.58M

I don't think I enjoyed this movie as much as I should have, considering I loved the first one as a kid, but I was quite late to the game (this movie came out LAST year!). There was a lot going on and I overall liked it though. LOVED the animation. You can tell how much work went into everything.

23. Summer of 84 (2018)

Not Rated | 105 min | Drama, Horror, Mystery

57 Metascore

Directors: François Simard, Anouk Whissell, Yoann-Karl Whissell | Stars: Graham Verchere, Judah Lewis, Caleb Emery, Cory Gruter-Andrew

Votes: 22,671

This movie kinda left me sad. It promised a summer adventure, but te tone changed in the last act and ended on such a dark note. I overall enjoyed it, but I do wish they kept the tone throughout the whole movie.

24. John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum (2019)

R | 131 min | Action, Crime, Thriller

Votes: 94,504 | Gross: $156.08M

Seeing John Wick kick ass really makes me believe in all the good in the world. Amazing and brutal fight scenes and a suprising ending. Can't wait for the sequel!

25. Good Omens (2019– )

TV-MA | 60 min | Comedy, Fantasy

A tale of the bungling of Armageddon features an angel, a demon, an eleven-year-old Antichrist, and a doom-saying witch.

Stars: David Tennant, Michael Sheen, Frances McDormand, Sam Taylor Buck

Votes: 21,335

I knew from the moment I heard about this series, that I would love it, and I was right. Absolutely amazing, especially the acting. The effects were a bit cheap-ish at times, but you could definitely overlook it for the humor and great pace.

26. The Fate of the Furious (2017)

PG-13 | 136 min | Action, Adventure, Thriller

56 Metascore

Director: F. Gary Gray | Stars: Vin Diesel, Jason Statham, Dwayne Johnson, Michelle Rodriguez

Votes: 180,403 | Gross: $226.01M

Yeeeah, I know, I'm late to the game, as always. The F&F franchise really started to grow on me, though. This movie was a great action piece and had some good sentimental scenes.

27. Rough Night (2017)

R | 101 min | Comedy, Crime, Thriller

Director: Lucia Aniello | Stars: Scarlett Johansson, Kate McKinnon, Zoë Kravitz, Ilana Glazer

Votes: 39,696 | Gross: $22.06M

A suprise hit for me. A expected a silly, little comedy, that's trying way to hard to be like Hangover, but I was wrong. Solid cast, nice humor. I think people sometimes take certain movies to seriously (hence the bad-ish IMDb score).
