My top 150 horror movies of the past decade

Edit: thank you everyone for the awards and amazing comments! :’) I hope everyone found new movies to watch from my list! I apologize for formatting issues, I’m on mobile.

Hi everyone! This past week has been full of thunderstorms- it’s gotten me into a major horror binge. Here’s a list of my 150 favorite horror movies of the past 10 years (2011-2022)! These are my personal favorites, ranked by personal preference. Hope you enjoy!

[OC] [Long] I examined 1,000 audience reviews for The Rise of Skywalker on Rotten Tomatoes, and its 86% audience score is a poor representation of reality.

Note: This post is best viewed on the Reddit redesign (or Reddit mobile), due to its chart/graph/image embeds.

Introduction

Earlier in the week I wrote a lengthy post about how Rotten Tomatoes audience reviews for The Last Jedi continue to demonstrate that film’s polarized, but heavily negative, reception. The TL;DR for that post highlighted the following observations:

  • The last 500 user reviews of The Last Jedi posted to Rotten Tomatoes (during the period of March 15, 2020 to April 8, 2021) produced an average rating of 1.997 Stars.
  • Of this sample, 206/500 users (42.2%) gave TLJ 0.5 Stars, the lowest possible rating, while 66/500 users (13.2%) gave TLJ 5 Stars, the highest possible rating.
  • This sample produces a Rotten Tomatoes audience score of 27%, which is substantially lower than the full audience score of 42%.
  • The Internet continues to loathe or love The Last Jedi with very little middle ground, but it seems that opinion about TLJ is generally souring over time.

Commenters on that post expressed a desire for a similar look at the audience reviews for The Rise of Skywalker, which has mysteriously held an 86% audience rating ever since the film’s December 2019 release. I’ll just opine here that this unflinching, unwavering audience score is probably an intended result of the new audience β€œverification” scheme put into place by Rotten Tomatoes following pressure from big studios who were upset that they perceived themselves to be losing box office dollars as a result of their films becoming swept up in the various culture wars.

The Rise of Skywalker sits at a comfortable 86% audience score and has done so since December 2019.

My method in the case of The Rise of Skywalker was initially just to repeat what I did for The Last Jedi, and collect the rating, date, and comment for the last 500 reviews of the 2019 film. However, when I did so, I noticed a growing disparity between the roughly two dozen β€œverified” revie

Yesterday I wrote a 1600 word essay for my Writing class and I could choose what it was about and it's called "Why Was the Star Wars Sequel Trilogy So Divisive?" If anyone cares, here it is.

In December of 2015, the first Star Wars movie in ten years premiered. This movie was also the beginning of a new trilogy, known as the Sequel Trilogy of the Skywalker Saga, or simply the sequels. The trilogy’s first movie was Episode Seven: The Force Awakens, which made five-hundred and twenty-nine million dollars within the first week alone. The movie was also welcomed by warm critics, reaching a high rating of ninety-three percent on Rotten Tomatoes, a reputable site for movie ratings. However, the audience was slightly less enthusiastic, with an also high rating of eighty-six percent. While the initial reaction to the movie was primarily positive, the film did not age well, now sitting at a seventy-two percent approval rating. The reason behind why the film has become less popular has been suggested to be because of the film’s similarity to episode four. Another possible explanation is the audience’s reaction to Episode Eight: The Last Jedi. While the critics have rated The Last Jedi to be one of the best star wars films ever, sitting comfortably at ninety percent, the audiences seemed to have enjoyed the film far less. The score is a lowly score of forty-two percent, the lowest of all the Star Wars movies. Then Rise of Skywalker, the final episode in the trilogy and the saga, received a critical score of fifty-one percent. The audience, however, seemed to mostly enjoy Rise of Skywalker, giving it a eighty-six percent rating overall. Overall this means that only about thirty percent of people enjoy all the sequel movies, compared to the original trilogy, which has eighty-seven percent of viewers enjoying all three movies, and sixty-six percent enjoyed all three prequel movies.

Many people do not like all three sequel movies for four main reasons, the first being lack of creativity. The opening episode of the sequel trilogy follows the same path as the original trilogy’s first episode, a brave hero on a desert planet finds a droid belonging to the good guys. We meet a wise older man who remembers an ancient war and has had lots of adventures who will die later by the hand of someone he once knew, and the hero receives a lightsaber. The good guys save a girl from a superweapon that they will later destroy. The empire is also very similar to The First Order, being an entity of pure evil rule. This issue is heavily present in episode seven but also exists in episodes eight and nine. Episode eight is quite a bit like episode five; the good guy base is reve

Kwpluckett #153: Tenet (2020)

IMDB

See my review of the first 100 movies here.

Challenge started: 5/18/2020 
Challenge completed: 10/23/2020
Date Watched: 5/1/2021
Runtime: 2h30m
Rating: PG-13 
Watched on: HBOMAX 
Rotten Tomatoes: 70%
Imdb rating: 7.4
Genre: Action/ Thriller
Directed by: Christopher Nolan

Google synopsis:

A secret agent is given a single word as his weapon and sent to prevent the onset of World War III. He must travel through time and bend the laws of nature in order to be successful in his mission.

My thoughts:

Alright, ok, alright, uh-huh, I totally 'got' this movie the first time I watched it... seriously though, this does seem to be a movie made for multiple screenings. Welcome to the wonderful and often overly heady world of Christopher Nolan...

This being said, I really like most Nolan flicks, and this one is... on par, in my book.

Robert Pattinson has shown up in so many of the films I've watched in the last year and I have to say this dude really has some acting chops! He's by far the best character in this film. I'm not as sold on John David Washington, but you know tomato, tomato...

The plot is a really fun spin on the Nolan formula, and is a fun ride as it puts much of the main focus on the action rather than characters or dialog... this is also a curse though, in that a number of the characters feel completely flat and their relationships totally unbelievable. (Especially 'Protagonist' and 'Kat'. Yikes. Not good.)

Another hit, what's up with the protagonist being called the "Protagonist"? Why is he self-aware? I mean he literally says "I'm the Protagonist"! It's a minor gripe, I guess, but it just shows the lengths to which Nolan will go, to forgo realistic characters, realistic relationships, and realistic action. Everything and everyone is a symbol or a double-meaning and it just feels too forced and too gottcha-y

This being said, the idea of flipping time, or entering parallel realities is really intriguing to me, and I think it leads to some really unique and fun action sequences. Though perhaps it's trying a little too hard at times...

All in all, it's definitely worth a watch or two, but it is far from being a must-watch and far from being a great Nolan flick.

I'll give Tenet a 3 out of 5.

Genre: sci-fi/action
Directed by: Hideaki Anno, Shinji Higuchi

Google synopsis:

Japan is plunged into chaos when a skyscraper-sized lizard monster rises from the deep of Tokyo Bay and lays waste to Tokyo.

My thoughts:

This movie is a total throw back to old school Zilla thrillas, and I loved it. Please note, however, that I am reviewing the English dub here, which I think detracted from the film substantially.

First, the monster itself is so cool. I love the new approach, but old school aesthetic. This film really harkens back to classic Godzilla in it's design choices, and narrative and it reminded me of what I felt like as a kid watching Godzilla for the first time. Best of all, I watched this with my Dad and I think he related to the film in much the same way.

Now some of the bad. (Remember I watched the english dub.) The dialoge is not great. I feel some of this would've been remedied watching theb original language track. There is character development here, but a it's a little rapid and unbelievable. The narrative is a little slow and all of the political dialogue, banter, stewing, it gets a bit thick. I understand there there is a big lizard attacking Tokyo, I understand there are consequences for every action taken, but I came here for the action... again this reminds me of the old Godzilla films, for better and worse.

The action sequences are great though not as common here as I'd like. The battle for Tokyo between man and monster is visceral and believable. When they bring out the big guns, you feel it, and when they don't work, cause i mean it's freaking Godzilla, you feel their defeat. The fight fills you with awe and inevitable peril. Every decision, every action imperfect and the counter by Godzilla shear terror and devistation.

This film is a ton of fun, though slow at parts, and between this and the recent Godzilla vs. Kong it's rekindled my long dormant love of Godzilla and sparked new interest with my kids. (My baby loves the the big RAWR and the funny monkey.) We watched this on Eas

'Tenet' Review Thread

Rotten Tomatoes: 78% (41 reviews) with 6.98 in average rating

> Critics Consensus: A visually dazzling puzzle for film lovers to unlock, Tenet serves up all the cerebral spectacle audiences expect from a Christopher Nolan production.

Metacritic: 71/100 (18 critics)

As with other movies, the scores are set to change as time passes. Meanwhile, I'll post some short reviews on the movie.

> The sheer meticulousness of Nolan’s grand-canvas action aesthetic is enthralling, as if to compensate for the stray loose threads and teasing paradoxes of his screenplay β€” or perhaps simply to underline that they don’t matter all that much. β€œTenet” is no holy grail, but for all its stern, solemn posing, it’s dizzy, expensive, bang-up entertainment of both the old and new school. Right now, as it belatedly crashes a dormant global release calendar, it seems something of a time inversion in itself.

-Guy Lodge, Variety

> Altogether, it makes for a chilly, cerebral film β€” easy to admire, especially since it's so rich in audacity and originality, but almost impossible to love, lacking as it is in a certain humanity.

-Leslie Felperin, The Hollywood Reporter

> It may echo the cleverness of Rian Johnson’s β€œLooper” and Shane Carruth’s β€œPrimer” in its dizzying disregard for linear chronology, but the plotting is muddled rather than complex, with less to say about the flow of time than β€œInterstellar” or β€œMemento.” In the end, β€œTenet” isn’t one of Nolan’s most satisfying films. But after I’ve seen it four or five more times, maybe I’ll change my mind.

-Nicholas Barber, The Wrap

> The depth, subtlety and wit of Pattinson and Debicki’s performances only becomes fully apparent once you know where Tenet is going, or perhaps that should be where it’s been. Still confused? Don’t be. Or rather do be, and savour it. This is a film that will cause many to throw up their hands in bamboozlement – and many more, I hope, to clasp theirs in awe and delight.

Imdb synopsis:

The best sword master from China vs the best sword master from Japan. Who will win?

My thoughts:

This film is great! Watch it!

This was a ton of fun, as some of my college friends and I watched this one online-together, as this was a film we'd watched together, back in the day. Well... i don't think I can really count that I'd watched this one before... as most all of this was brand new to me... who knows what I was doing the first time we watched it? I certainly don't...

This is a really incredible martial-arts/ sword fighting flick with an epic premise. There's really not much to say beyond that. I could break down some of the scenes for accuracy, and perhaps fault some character motivation, but I won't.

Is this film perfect? No. Is there some cheese factor? Yes! Is this film brutal and epic in every way? Yes!

The score is a fantastic drench of synths and traditional sounds too, which is music to my ears.

Tons of fun to watch with friends. We really want to watch A Chinese Ghost Story, by the same director, next. I'm looking forward to it and am intrigued to check out more of his films in general.

Don't let anyone stand in your way and kill any that get in your path of seeing this film... even god himself.

I give Duel to the Death a 4.5 out of 5.

David Fincher's 'Mank' Review Thread

Rotten Tomatoes: 92% (38 reviews) with 8.20 in average rating

> Critics Consensus: Sharply written and brilliantly performed, Mank peers behind the scenes of Citizen Kane to tell an old Hollywood story that could end up being a classic in its own right.

Metacritic: 81/100 (24 critics)

As with other movies, the scores are set to change as time passes. Meanwhile, I'll post some short reviews on the movie.

> Written by Jack Fincher, who is David Fincher’s (late) father, β€œMank” is a lusciously evocative, verbally sharp-angled movie that’s never less than engrossing. Yet given that it’s about the creation of β€œCitizen Kane,” there’s a way that it’s almost more inside baseball than it needed to be. And that could limit its appeal.

-Owen Gleiberman, Variety

> However much credit Mankiewicz deserves for β€œKane,” Fincher’s remarkable movie makes a compelling argument for appreciating the prescience behind its conception. His life had a rough ending, but the movie about it gives him one last bitter laugh.

-Eric Kohn, IndieWire: B+

> It’s possible to go into a kind of trance at just how beautiful this film looks, a ravishing display created by cinematographer Erik Messerschmidt and production designer Donald Graham Burt, with costumes by Trish Summerville. It’s a view of Hollywood that is unfashionable in many ways – the current view is probably more in line with Ryan Murphy’s miniseries Hollywood, which is all about correcting the erasure of anyone outside the white-heterosexual system, and that isn’t really what Mank is about. But what an addictive romantic drama it is, mixing sentimentality with pure rapture.

-Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian: 5/5

> It's the visuals that linger here, an entire world of after-images swimming in the brain, from a magnificent artefact that will certainly sweep the boards at next year's Oscars but is, if one is being brutally honest, just a tiny bit cold.

TOP 10 COINS TO WATCH IN 2021 – COMPLETE GUIDE BY TYCOON.IO

Let’s dig straight into the top 10 most important coins of the upcoming bull market of 2021 so you can find out if they have a place in your portfolio and why.

After 2 grueling years of the brutal bear market beating, the cryptocurrency space is finally lighting up with excitement and a long awaited positive price action. Without further ado, here are the 10 most important cryptocurrencies that you should definitely keep on your radar;

– Bitcoin

– Ethereum

– Polkadot

– Monero

– Chainlink

– Aave

– Vechain

– Maker

– Kusama

– Ocean

In this article we will cover each and every one of them and ( for the patient among you ) we will also dissect a few bonus contenders. Before we start, it’s important to know that just like gasoline, crypto currency is extremely volatile and risky. Therefore it’s imperative that a good investor always works with capital that he doesn’t need in the immediate future and that he/she is prepared to spend time on education and simply being patient, neutral and pragmatic. Now we have the basics covered, let’s jump into every coin and discover why it’s so damn important.

Bitcoin

I know, I know! Everyone off course is aware that Bitcoin will be an important crypto currency during this bull market. Hell, it’s THE most important crypto currency. Yet there are a few aspects that we have to cover where we’ll need to explain exactly why Bitcoin deserves this place and why in the whole β€œmadness to come”, Bitcoin will pull stunts that will drop jaws and cause world wide FOMO ( fear of missing out ). It will be even more contagious than the worst epidemic known to mankind.

Remember that it’s NOT about Bitcoin! It’s about the whole global economy and what it will do FOR Bitcoin. In contrary to popular belief, it was not 2020 that gave the world a serious shakeup. It was in fact 2008 and the subsequent financial crisis that has caused all the problems that we are still choking on today. The 2020 and the pandemic were simply salt rubbed on an already bleeding wound. The mass media has been squirming in a truly colossal effort to divert our attention by any means possible so that none of us would know what’s important; namely that since the 2008 great financial crisis pretty much NONE of the problems have been solved.

'Underwater' is a Decent Brain-Off Sci-Fi Action Thriller

I love deep psychological thoughtful movies, but sometimes I also enjoy just an easy action ride and 'Underwater' delivers. It's a 2020 film with Kristen Stewart, Vincent Cassel, Jessica Henwick, John Gallagher Jr., TJ Miller, and Mamoudou Athie. It sits at 48% on Rotten Tomatoes but a 60% audience score. It's not winning any awards, and it's full of tropes, but it is a solid entry into the "dumb" scifi action thriller genre. It's about a group 300+ workers at the bottom of the Mariana Trench drilling into it for whatever reason. In the process of course things go wrong and creatures hunt the crew as they attempt to escape the pressure of the trench and reach the surface. That's about it. There's some very low effort character building and about the same development. People die, people survive, and the film does as much work making you care as any other action horror. It's closer to 90s action films than it is to Ari Aster's work. But hey, sometimes that's what you want.

And from the first few minutes the film delivers. Don't expect anything groundbreaking, but the action and narrative is well paced and has good momentum, except for one slow down toward the end of the film that felt a little awkward. The visuals are pretty decent as well, with some cool scifi designs that clearly draw inspiration from works before. The suits looking almost Warhammerian with bulky detailed shoulder pads. At times it feels almost like a space movie, but then the film makes good use of the underwater environment. Kind of like Seaquest meets Alien meets In the Mountains of Madness. The creatures are clearly inspired by some of the Old Ones from Lovecraft's work, but also still have a distinct underwater creature design. I was a bit disappointed the film didn't go into the psychological thriller territory with madness, as I thought it might. But this is more of a sea monster film than a sea madness one. There is quite a bit of environment as the danger though.

The dialogue is of course transparent. There are a few well written and directed lines, but you're not going into this for Shakespeare. While not amazing, I never felt like the dialogue was as terrible as it could have been. Fitting the genre just fine. And surprisingly at times the dialogue was as helpful in its transparency, as there were a few scenes where I wasn't sure what characters were trying to do, and they helpfully announced it.

Overall the acting is pretty decent as well, with some competent to even g

Pixar's 'Soul' - Review Thread

Review embargo just lifted for the new Pixar movie, Soul. It just premiered at the London Film Festival. Pretty amazing/glowing reviews so far.

Rotten Tomatoes: 100% - 8 Reviews - 7.75 Average

Metacritic: 89/100 - 5 Reviews - Universal Acclaim


Indiewire:

> Pixar’s jazzy existential celebration is one of the studio’s very best. The first entry in the Pixar canon to center on a Black character is a magical crowdpleaser that embodies the Pixar Touch.

Deadline:

> It’s a concrete return to the Pixar of old, full of grand ideas and original execution, and a statement of intent for Docter’s steering of the Pixar ship away from endless sequels and back to inventive originals. It astounds in ways [Pixar] hasn’t quite achieved in years.

Hollywood Reporter:

> Sublime in every sense. While the music is still ringing in my ears and the tears still drying, it may be too soon to be sure, but I think the company's latest feature lands somewhere in the top echelons [of Pixar films]. Featuring possibly the best soundtrack in a Pixar film since the first Toy Story.

The Wrap:

> Soul is perhaps the most existentially ambitious film ever attempted by Disney and yet it pops with colorful visuals and gentle wisdom while the story clips along despite the dizzying height of the concept. Only in the final stages do the knots of plot complexity get the better of the characters, but audiences will have been well won over by then.

The Telegraph:

> 5/5. Pixar stares death in the face with warmth, wit and wonder.

Empire:

> 3/5. It’s a little Pixar-lite. It’s a gorgeous 100 minutes, but not a huge emotional journey.

Screendaily:

> Pixar’s stunning animation doesn’t disappoint. Visually glorious, frequently very funny and genuinely profound.

Kwpluckett #144.5: King Kong vs. Godzilla (1962)

IMDB

See my review of the first 100 movies here.

Challenge started: 5/18/2020 
Challenge completed: 10/23/2020
Date Watched: 4/12/2021
Runtime: 1h18m
Rating: n/a
Watched on: Criterion Blu-ray 
Rotten Tomatoes: 50%
Imdb rating: 5.9
Genre: Sci-fi/ Horror
Directed by: Ishirō Honda

Google synopsis:

King Kong and Godzilla go head-to-head in an epic battle of the beast when the giant gorilla escapes from captivity in Japan and squares up to the recently thawed lizard.

My thoughts:

My goodness, my baby loves the MONKEY! She was so worried for King Kong here that I thought we were going to have to turn it off. I was able to keep her calm though, and reassure here that "Monkey... okay." (She is the best to watch monster movies with, no joke, she's super into it... most times.)

This is a fun movie overall, but it's probably a little cheesy, uncanny, hokey... and I love it.

The monsters are pretty silly looking here and it's certainly dialed up to 11, but it's part of the draw. (For me at least.) The film goes a little more in depth in developing Godzilla's and Kong's abilities, weaknesses and lore than previous entries and also introduces a new kind if monster to the Godzilla series... the Venture Capitalist!

There is light commentary on the intersecting of business and politics here, but like I said it's light. (Though perhaps it is the savior in the end? Guess you have to watch to find out!)

This is a creature feature for sure, with some alright/ funny human characters along the way. The dialoge tends to drag, and the jumping around allows little in the way emotional connection. (Except to the MONKEY!) The main draw here is definitely the, as billed for, battle of the century between Kong and Zilla... and it's pretty fun, though fairly light on impact and spectacle.

I didn't end up enjoying this one as much as I remember, but the imagery is fairly memorable, and my childhood nostalgia definitely adds to the point scaling here.

I'll give King Kong vs. Godzilla a 3 out of 5.

Watch it if you're a fan of the series or going for completion.

I examined the last 500 audience reviews for The Last Jedi on Rotten Tomatoes, and here’s what I found.

Note: This post is best viewed on the Reddit redesign (or Reddit mobile), due to its chart/graph/image embeds.

Introduction

A recent post here (showing The Last Jedi as the film with the largest discrepancy between critic and audience score on Rotten Tomatoes) encouraged me to poke around in the audience reviews for The Last Jedi. I was mostly surprised about the frequency that they have continued to roll in, approximately 3.5 years after the film’s release. For example, for the month of March 2021 alone, users left 76 new reviews/ratings for the film. This review rate would not hold (more on this below), but it still represents what we might call an ongoing interest in contesting the quality of Rian Johnson’s controversial film.

Curiosity about these ongoing ratings turned to the potential for a more detailed analysis. I began scraping and saving the ratings, reviews, and date posted, thinking I might stop at 100 or 200. I ended up taking the last 500 ratings instead, posted over a period covering March 15, 2020 to April 8, 2021β€”roughly commensurate, incidentally, with the expanse of time that many people have been affected by lockdowns of various sorts due to the pandemic.

So what do the last 500 audience reviews tell us about The Last Jedi? Not surprisingly, the film continues to polarize audiences. More than half of all reviewers (54.4%; n = 206 + 66 = 272) during this time either gave The Last Jedi the worst possible score on Rotten Tomatoes (0.5 Star) or the highest possible score (5 Stars). If the 10-point scale is condensed further to a 5-point scale, thus lumping together 0.5 and 1 Star scores and 4.5 and 5 Star scores, we find that only 29% of reviewers ranked The Last Jedi somewhere in the middle of the pack, from 1.5-4.0 Stars. Either this film is the greatest thing since sliced bread, or it ruined people’s lives/the Star Wars saga completely. Here is a top-level breakdown of the scores these 500 users gave to TLJ:

Users reviewing TLJ on Rotten Tomatoes generally love or loathe the film.

I will say as well that I’m constantly curious if we could ever get a true handle on the reception of Th
