Every film I saw (so far) from worst to best. I wasn't a lunatic like last year where I saw everything that was released and save for a few films, Everything I saw this year I wanted to see. Feel free to comment and/or discuss.

Nice list, man. I agree with almost all that I've seen that are in your top 20. As for your need to see list, I'd definitely recommend checking out Seeking a Friend... and Seven Psychopaths if you get a chance. I thought Killing Them Softly wasn't very good. The Man with the Iron Fists wasn't as good as I was hoping and the story was too rushed, but at least I got what I wanted from it with some killer rap played over kung fu battles. :lol:

Thanks a lot dude! I plan on getting Seven Psychopaths on Netfilx when it comes out on DVD a week from Tuesday and Seeking a Friend for the End of the World is near the top of my queue atm. Good to know Man with the Iron Fists is loaded with dope rap over gory kung-fu battles because that's exactly what I wanted out of it :lol:

End of Watch was awesome. Thanks for reminding me about that one.

I need to go fuck off now over to another thread and make a correction... ;)

My thoughts exact :eyes:

So do I, he's my favorite director, but the movie was not perfect or 5/5 material. I mean I don't care about the predictability of the plot or the fact that the movie was a bit longer than it should have been, but it's just tarantino has done so much better and it was far from a perfect movie. I just think to myself was that as amazing as Pulp Fiction, Reservoir Dogs, or Inglorious Bastards and the answer is a clear "no".

I thought it was flawless. I've already seen it twice and it's honestly one of my favorite movies ever.

Ted is 4.5
Dictator is 4

Yep;) I'm normally not a big Seth McFarlane fan, but I thought Ted was fucking hilarious. Sacha Baron Cohen is someone I am big fan of and The Dictator was very amusing (better than Bruno, not as good as Borat) just not as funny as Ted imo.

I think it's definitely on par with Pulp Fiction and Inglorious Basterds. Christoph Waltz also gives one of the best performances I've ever seen which helps my rating. The movie may have been long, but there really wasn't a time when I was bored with it which is a testament to its greatness that I can watch it for two hours and forty five minutes and not get bored with it.
