I don’t have the time or patience to review every film I watch in-depth, so in the name of simplicity, I will use a rating system. I think rating movies with numbers or letter grades is arbitrary and dumb, so instead I will use emojis. Yes, you read that right. Either I liked a movie, I didn’t, or I thought it was a mixed bag.
❌= Not Worth Your Time / 🙃= Mixed Bag / ✅ = Worth Your Time / ⭐️ = REALLY Worth Your Time
Arrival (2016) ✅
Blade Runner (1982) ✅ The Final Cut is solid.
Blade Runner 2049 (2017) ✅
District 9 (2009) ⭐️
Elysium (2013) ✅
The Matrix (1999) ✅
The Matrix Reloaded (2003) ✅ The CGI hasn’t aged well, but I always enjoyed the Matrix sequels.
The Matrix Revolutions (2003) ✅
TENET (2020) ⭐️ For all its flaws, I couldn’t help but enjoy myself. Nolan is a madman. This is his “The Life of Pablo”: a beautiful mess.
The Tomorrow War (2021) ✅ It’s corny and full of plot holes, yet nonetheless enjoyable.
TRON: Legacy (2010) ⭐️ Stylistic as hell. It holds a special place in my childhood.
