My ranking of all the films I watched last year for the first time continues. Here’s hoping there are some better films in this section.


200. The Mummy: Tomb Of The Dragon Emperor

⭐️⭐️1/2 Stars

The third film really misses Rachel Weisz, but is still entertaining.


199. Keanu

⭐️⭐️1/2 Stars

A gangster kitten named Keanu, it’s what we’ve all been waiting for. Jordan Peele and Keegan-Michael Key are also a great double act.


198. Resident Evil: Extinction

⭐️⭐️1/2 Stars

This is the third instalment and has a real Mad Max feel to it.


197. Transporter 2

⭐️⭐️1/2 Stars

This is by far the craziest Transporter film. Also, why is this woman in her underwear for the whole film?


196. The Legend Of Zorro

⭐️⭐️1/2 Stars

It’s no The Mask Of Zorro, but still fun.


195. Shanghai Knights

⭐️⭐️1/2 Stars

Like above, it’s no Shanghai Noon but still fun. It’s a common them with the sequels I watched this year.


194. Reign Of Fire

⭐️⭐️1/2 Stars

I feel I’m being a bit harsh with the stars for this film. Quite bleak, but in some ways a better version of 2020 than we got.


193. The Witches Of Eastwick

⭐️⭐️1/2 Stars

Have been meaning to watch this film for years. Utterly entertaining and quite batshit crazy in places.


192. The Presidio

⭐️⭐️1/2 Stars

A good thriller starring Mark Harmon, Sean Connery and Meg Ryan.


191. Non-Stop

⭐️⭐️1/2 Stars

A well made thriller on a plane. Lots of entertainment, suspense and a twisty plot.


190. Red Sonja

⭐️⭐️1/2 Stars

Another 2am film. I enjoyed it, bit don’t remember that much about it.


189. The Young Offenders

⭐️⭐️1/2 Stars

I’ve not seen the series, but if it’s anything like the film I’m sure I’ll enjoy it.


188. Shanghai Noon

⭐️⭐️1/2 Stars

The Wild West and Jackie Chan are a good combo.


187. The Christmas Chronicles: Part 2

⭐️⭐️1/2 Stars

A bit of festive fun. I’m assuming there may be a part 3 coming soon.


186. Resident Evil: Apocalypse

⭐️⭐️1/2 Stars

This is the second Resident Evil film (I think, it gets confusing). It kicks off after the events of the first and starts the building of the further films. Good fun, leave your brain at the door.


185. Friday The 13th: The Final Chapter

⭐️⭐️⭐️ Stars

A great instalment of the franchise. A complete lie of a title, but the idea was good. Plus Corey Feldman in a busy period, he had this, his cameo in part V, Gremlins and The Goonies all out within 2 years.


184. Race To Witch Mountain

⭐️⭐️⭐️ Stars

It was good Dwayne Johnson fun, but feel it could have been even better had Disney given it a decent budget.


183. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2

⭐️⭐️⭐️ Stars

A decent set of films, but found it finished with a whimper. Did they need to split the final book?


182. Hamilton

⭐️⭐️⭐️ Stars

Is it technically a film? Well it I was able to rate it on Letterboxd so yeah. Not as big of fan of it than most, but glad I’ve seen it.


181. Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows

⭐️⭐️⭐️ Stars

It’s no Sherlock Gnomes (confession, I haven’t seen Sherlock gnomes). As entertaining as the previous film, and much better than series 3 & 4 of Sherlock.


180. The Searchers

⭐️⭐️⭐️ Stars

I was not expecting the scale of this movie. It was good. One question, why didn’t John Wayne age a day over the 10 or whatever years it is set?


179. Aquaman

⭐️⭐️⭐️ Stars

Bit of superhero fun, something DCEU can be guilty of missing. Spoiler, there may be another DC film to feature in this list.


178. Changeland

⭐️⭐️⭐️ Stars

I’m sure who’s the better supporting actor in this, Macaulay Culkin or Randy Orion. A good feature film directorial debut from Seth Green.


177. Happy New Year, Colin Burstead

⭐️⭐️⭐️ Stars

Ben Wheatley directs a family new year gathering that’s interesting and enjoyable for all the drama.


176. Terminator: Dark Fate

⭐️⭐️⭐️ Stars

Why do they keep trying to make a new trilogy? Just focus on making one decent film. I enjoyed the entertainment, but it didn’t give me anything I hadn’t seen before. Nice to have Linda Hamilton back.


175. Paul Blart: Mall Cop

⭐️⭐️⭐️ Stars

That’s correct, this is higher than Terminator: Dark Fate. I really enjoyed it and am gutted that I couldn’t find the sequel. Maybe I will in 2021.


174. Eurovision Song Contest: The Story Of Fire Saga

⭐️⭐️⭐️ Stars

An enjoyable distraction from the fact we had no Eurovision this year.


173. Stuber

⭐️⭐️⭐️ Stars

It took me longer than it should have to understand the title. A decent action comedy, no brains required.


172. My Spy

⭐️⭐️⭐️ Stars

It’s a Batista double bill, but this one trumps Stuber. It’s funnier.


171. Going In Style

⭐️⭐️⭐️ Stars

Please let Zach Braff direct more, he’s great.


170. The House

⭐️⭐️⭐️ Stars

I hadn’t seen Parks and Recreation when I watched this, so didn’t know about the brilliance of Amy Poehler. I had low expectations with this film and came out very happy.


169. Mayhem

⭐️⭐️⭐️ Stars

Much like Office Uprising (if you’ve seen that), people in an office go mad, kill, and have sex. This does star one of my favourite new actresses, Samara Weaving. Who will appear again later in this list.


168. Rebecca

⭐️⭐️⭐️ Stars

As I write this, I only watched it last night. A good film that’s faithful to the book, with a few added bits. Only criticism is that the final third seems a bit rushed. Kristin Scott Thomas is amazing as Mrs Danvers.


167. The Chronicles Of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch And The Wardrobe

⭐️⭐️⭐️ Stars

A great, enjoyable family film. One I will be watching with my son when he’s old enough.


166. Resident Evil: Retribution

⭐️⭐️⭐️ Stars

The penultimate Resident Evil film takes us back through the previous instalments and sets us up for the finale. Nice one.


165. Dora And The Lost City Of Gold

⭐️⭐️⭐️ Stars

And we go seamlessly from Resident Evil to Dora The Explorer. Never seem the tv show, but enjoyed this. Another film to watch with my son later.


164. The Wolverine

⭐️⭐️⭐️ Stars

Better than Wolverine: Origins, but that ain’t hard. Still confused by the post credit scene. Is that linked to any of the future films? I thought Days Of Future Past, but isn’t that set many years in the future? Or is it linked to Logan as it’s the same director? My head hurts!


163. Suspiria

⭐️⭐️⭐️ Stars

A classic horror film. Probably wouldn’t watch again, but glad I’ve seen it.


162. Friday The 13th Part 2

⭐️⭐️⭐️ Stars

The sequel that’s different from the original, and a great, shocking beginning.


161. Bumblebee

⭐️⭐️⭐️ Stars

We were warned that you may like this Transformers movie, and they were right. A toned down mechanical mash of a finale, and a film with good characters and a decent plot.


160. The Transporter

⭐️⭐️⭐️ Stars

I think I may have seen most of this film before 2020, but not all, so it still counts. Jason Statham being Statham and kicking ass whilst driving a fast car.


159. The Christmas Chronicles

⭐️⭐️⭐️ Stars

This reminded me of Santa Claus The Movie with Dudley Moore and John Lithgow. Kind of an updated version. Really liked it and would happily watch it each Christmas.


158. Chopping Mall

⭐️⭐️⭐️ Stars

A film where a bunch of security guard robots go on a killing spree in a mall. It’s the film everyone has been waiting for (that was made in 1986).


157. Star Wars: The Clone Wars

⭐️⭐️⭐️ Stars

Okay here is where people will question my sanity. I really enjoyed this film. So much so I’m currently watching the tv series. Also, Anakin Skywalker isn’t a whiny little Jedi!


156. Fled

⭐️⭐️⭐️ Stars

Laurence Fishburne is a convict attached by handcuffs to a Baldwin (Stephen I think), and is on the run.


155. 6 Below: Miracle On The Mountain

⭐️⭐️⭐️ Stars

A really great performance from Josh Hartnett.


154. Fist Of Fury

⭐️⭐️⭐️ Stars

A good Bruce Lee film, but not his best. Plus I could only get the dubbed version which was annoying.


153. Darkman

⭐️⭐️⭐️ Stars

Watched this film purely based on the batshit carnival scene, and it was well worth it. Prime Sam Raimi.


152. Poseidon

⭐️⭐️⭐️ Stars

A remake of the amazing 1972 The Poseidon Adventure, and not a bad attempt. What you’d expect from a disaster movie in 2006, leave your brain at the door and enjoy yourself.


151. The Golden Child

⭐️⭐️⭐️ Stars

A 1986 fantasy adventure starring Eddie Murphy and Charles Dance. Good fun.
