#127: Terminator Genisys - MovieCount 2015

Loved it. Pretty badass. A bit confused at times, but that's time travel for ya. And John Conner wasn't a little bitch like in T2.

#126: Mad Max: Fury Road - (2nd viewing) - MovieCount 2015

Just brutal. Love it.

#125: Mr. Turner - MovieCount 2015

Visually fantastic & Timothy Spall is a great actor, but it was so British & dull.

#124: Ted 2 - MovieCount 2015

A landmark civil rights film (for talking bears).

#123: Poltergeist (2015) - MovieCount 2015

Not a bad movie by any means, but does not compare to the classic.

#122: Crossroads - MovieCount 2015

Nobody would defeat Steve Vai in a real life guitar battle.

#121: Get On Up - MovieCount 2015

Didn't hold back on the fact James Brown was mean & crazy as hell, but still an absolute electric performer.

#119 - Inside Out - MovieCount 2015

Super cute story about a little girl's descent into crushing depression.

Inside Out
Pete Docter

#118 - Soaked in Bleach - MovieCount 2015

Analytical breakdown of Kurt Cobain's death. This documentary/docudrama is so much different than Montage of Heck (plus no music rights, so no Nirvana) but it also could have also been a 100 minute conclusion. It's entertainment vs. cold hard facts. And what this movie suggests, is something that I (and many others) have assumed since his death, that it was a murder, and it points to Courtney Love. Evidence & forensics, testaments & testimony, motivations & motives, the facts are compelling.

Soaked in Bleach

#117 - A Deadly Adoption - MovieCount 2015

A straight-up Lifetime movie. And I was totally into it.

#111: Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome - MovieCount 2015

Remember how HUGE this movie was in the 80's? Looking back, Bartertown didn't seem all that bad.

#110: A.I. Artificial Intelligence - MovieCount 2015

Every second Teddy is in this film is the best. I love this movie. For as much as I love everything about this movie, I love Teddy 10 times more. Every action, every sound. The voice of reason, who follows & tries to protect this crazed robot child, until it ultimately kills him. Luckily he comes back.

#103: Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior - MovieCount 2015

Still a good film, but pales in comparison to Fury Road now, in my opinion.

#94: Watchmen - MovieCount 2015

Nixon's a funny looking guy, but nothing like the circus freaks in every movie he's portrayed in. Watchmen especially.

Zack Snyder

#93: Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade - MovieCount 2015

Nazis. I hate those guys. But I like how the last part of the movie was just like The Goonies.

#92: The Illusionist - MovieCount 2015

Really like this movie but Edward Norton bugs me in it. Giamatti is great as usual.

#91: Avengers: Age of Ultron - MovieCount 2015

Weird seeing a robot (Ultron) with such a regular human voice & mannerisms, but a fun movie.

If Bill Murray wasn't the star, this movie would be a real turd.

#88: Sunshine - MovieCount 2015

Great movie with a notoriously bad third act. Sunshine was also the name of my grandma's cat.

Danny Boyle

#87: Godzilla - MovieCount 2015

More like God-ZZZ-ila. I still like the movie, but so much potential was lost.
