"Nature made me a freak. Man made me a weapon. And God made it last too long."
280 points, 24 lists

directed by James Mangold | US | 2017

 

The Pitch: In an alternate future where mutants are nearly extinct, an aged Logan protects a young mutant named Laura.

 

Metacritic: 77
Box Office: $619m WW
Awards: Academy Award nomination for Best Adapted Screenplay; Saturn Award for Best Supporting Actor, out of 6 nominations
BOT History: #4, Top Movies of 2017; #77, Top 100 Movies of All Time (2018); #7, Top Comic Book Movies of All Time (2019); 5 BOFFY nominations
Critic Opinion: "Logan is a strong argument for bringing the comic-book movie down to earth. It solidly hits its marks as it moves the franchise furniture around, and features striking special-effects scenes in which the world shudders to a near standstill." - Manohla Dargis, The New York Times

"It's R-rated because it has grown-up things to say -- things about mortality, aging, guilt, regret, and about what happens when superheroes, tired of being superheroes, start thinking very dark, very human thoughts." - Mike Scott, The Times-Picayune
BOT Sez: “If you are seeking for something different, something that doesn't come from Disney Happy Meal school of blockbusting, you might find plenty of enjoyment to be had with the third Wolverine outing, which for many will be the only good Wolverine solo movie. The James Mangold film knows when and how to be funny, its action sequences are intensely grounded and refreshingly CGI-free, the stakes are as real as they could ever be, the performances are significantly above anything in the in the genre in a long time, and holy shit it packs one hell of an emotional punch.
If you already love those characters, like me for instance, the impact is even greater.” - @Goffe
Commentary: With 17 years of the X-Men franchise in the rearview mirror and Hugh Jackman ready to depart for good, the late 20th Century Fox Film Corporation finally decided it could afford having Wolverine graphically slice and dice some motherfuckers on screen. Returning director and co-writer James Mangold exploited the built-up poignancy and demand as fully as he could, drawing heavily on Western stories to give our hero a twilight-of-the-gunfighter send-off; successfully making a selling point out of its own brutality and bleakness, the resulting film became one of its series' high points critically and commercially.

"No one's ever really gone."
285 points, 19 lists

directed by Rian Johnson | US | 2017

 

The Pitch: Rey trains under the guidance of Luke Skywalker as the Resistance attempts to escape the First Order's fleet.

 

#1 Placements: 1
Top 5 Placements: 2
Top 12 Placements: 1
Metacritic: 85
Box Office: $1.332 billion WW
Awards: 4 Academy Award nominations; 3 Saturn Awards, out of 13 nominations
BOT History: #6, Top Movies of 2017; #96, Top 100 Movies of All Time (2018); #58, Top 100 Sci-Fi Movies of All Time (2020); BOFFY for Best Villain (Kylo Ren), out of 13 nominations
Critic Opinion: “The movie works equally well as an earnest adventure full of passionate heroes and villains and a meditation on sequels and franchise properties ... [The film] is preoccupied with questions of legacy, legitimacy and succession, and includes multiple debates over whether one should replicate or reject the stories and symbols of the past.” - Matt Zoller Seitz, RogerEbert.com

"'They blow you up today, you blow them up tomorrow,' Del Toro’s opportunistic anti-hero says at one point during the film’s extended roller-coaster finale. It’s The Last Jedi’s way of acknowledging the cyclicality of Star Wars, and how awfully convenient it is, for franchising purposes, that there’s always a new generation of light and dark recruits to keep The Force in balance. The Last Jedi, like The Force Awakens and Rogue One before it, isn’t perfect popcorn entertainment: It sags a little in the middle, during that protracted misadventure in space-Morocco, and doesn’t always juggle its multiple storylines with the grace of, yes, The Empire Strikes Back. But by the rousing final act, Johnson has brought an apocalyptic grandeur to the lightsaber duels and airborne combat. His often-stirring addition to the saga finally lands on an affecting point about the importance of preserving essential cultural tradition without clinging too strictly to the dogma—and the texts—of the old way." - A.A. Dowd, The AV Club
BOT Sez: “Props to Rian Johnson for giving us a genuine and humanist spin on the franchise - I'm not sure how much I can add to the discussion, but it subverts expectation in a way that feels honest but takes the franchise in a unique spin - heroes don't need to be Skywalkers or royalty, they can come from anywhere - they don't need to even be Jedi warriors, but mechanics and pilots, even foxes! In this regard, it could be one of the most heartfelt entries in the saga.” - @Spaghetti

"I picture cracking her lovely skull, unspooling her brain. Trying to get answers."
288 points, 30 lists

directed by David Fincher | US | 2014

 

The Pitch: A man becomes a suspect in the disappearance of his wife as the case turns into a media circus.

 

Top 12 Placements: 2
Metacritic: 79
Box Office: $369m WW
Awards: Academy Award nomination for Best Actress
BOT History: #7, Top Movies of 2014; BOFFY awards for Best Actress and Adapted Screenplay, out of 9 nominations
Critic Opinion: Flynn proves a canny adapter of her own work, as Gone Girl is relatively fleet for a movie of its runtime, and smartly excises superfluous local color and characters from the book. But perhaps the best choice Flynn makes is to include an abbreviated version of her novel’s most important, telling monologue at a pivotal moment, with one character musing on the myth of “The Cool Girl,” the idealized woman who is “pretending to be the woman a man wants them to be.” The onus of societal and romantic expectations, for both sexes, is key to understanding—though certainly not justifying—the heinous acts committed in Gone Girl. Flynn’s story takes the idea of managing perception to an outsized extreme, a mentality that pairs well with Fincher’s hyper-precise filmmaking style." - Genevieve Koski, The Dissolve

"By the end of Gone Girl, the social issues that animate the film's beginning — job loss in an economic downturn, differences in wealth and class, media manipulation — have receded, and things have gotten so plot-driven and pulpy, there's nothing to challenge the director or make him stretch. In the film's final stages he seems to be relying entirely on craft — but, boy, is it effective craft." - Bob Mondello, NPR
BOT Sez: “Like the book, Gone Girl the film is both an intricate deconstruction of marriage and also effectively satirizes the media's almost grotesque obsession with missing people/murder trials. Ben Affleck gives what is easily his best performance yet, but the movie belongs to Rosamund Pike. Amy Dunne is already a very fascinating, complex character on the page, and Pike brings her to life with a mesmerizing performance that holds on to the viewer throughout.” - @filmlover
Commentary: From the previous record of 24 lists we go straight to 30 - yet this is the only film to get that many individual mentions outside the top 10, and the highest-ranking film to average less than 10 points per list. In other words, one of our last movies fueled much more by the breadth of support than by passion. David Fincher's blackly comic adaptation of Gillian Flynn's 2012 bestseller found him entirely in his wheelhouse, and for once the multiplex audiences were completely onboard, giving the director the biggest gross of his career. Despite this, he wouldn't direct another movie for 6 years, and even when he finally did, it was for Netflix.

"Time takes everybody out. Time's undefeated."
297 points, 25 lists

directed by Ryan Coogler | US | 2015

 

The Pitch: Adonis Johnson, the son of Apollo Creed, seeks out Rocky Balboa, who becomes his trainer and mentor.

 

Top 5 Placements: 1
Top 12 Placements: 2
Metacritic: 82
Box Office: $173m WW
Awards: Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actor
BOT History: #4, Top Movies of 2015; BOFFY awards for Best Actor, Supporting Actor and Soundtrack, out of 12 nominations
Critic Opinion: "Half the film, written by Coogler and Aaron Covington, revels in cliches, skillfully. The other half sidesteps them and concentrates on scenes and relationships that breathe easily and draw us in the hard way: not by narrative fiat or bald calculation, but through well-written and shrewdly acted encounters." - Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune

"Rocky might not be the brightest guy, but he knows things. He has his limitations, but he is, in his own way, extraordinary, and when we look at his/Stallone’s face, we can have no doubt that Rocky has gone through life and learned things. He has been awake all these years, and growing. With no exaggeration, this is a beautiful and moving thing to see." - Mick La Salle, San Francisco Chronicle
BOT Sez: “AMAZING from start to finish. I'm not a huge Rocky fan, I love the first, I love IV but I have seen all the others just once and barely remember what happens in them. But this movie got me. The story was great, the nostalgia was way more subtle than I expected, Stallone destroyed me and Michael B. Jordan will someday become a huge star if there's justice in the world.
I'm in the minority that didn't like Fruitvale Station at all. But Coogler delivered here.” - @Joel M
“The only reboot that matches the original. Creed captures of the magic of Rocky, infusing it with a modernity that never feels trying. Michael B. Jordan is magnificent as Adonis, embodying the character in a way that makes a clear counterpart to Stallone’s stellar Rocky. A two-hander with two of the most charismatic actors from two generations, both playing broken men building a family out of each other. Thompson also impresses, making Bianca a memorable foil for Donnie, and a romance well worth rooting for.” - @Blankments
Commentary: Arguably the decade's most spirited revival of franchise property, the secret being in the fact that the push for it came not from the studio suits but from Ryan Coogler, who was evidently as ambitious and enthusiastic behind the camera as his protagonist was in front of it. The energy paid off, bringing out the terrific populist filmmaker in Coogler, the movie star in Michael B. Jordan, and the soulful aged performer in Sylvester Stallone; five years on, it remains a real achievement.

"I just want to be perfect."
300 points, 23 lists

directed by Darren Aronofsky | US | 2010

 

The Pitch: A New York City ballerina descends into madness under the pressure of performing the lead role in a production of Swan Lake.

 

Top 5 Placements: 2
Top 12 Placements: 2
Metacritic: 79
Box Office: $329m WW
Awards: Academy Award for Best Actress, out of 5 nominations
BOT/BOM History: #5, Top Movies of 2010; #37, Top Horror Movies of All Time (2018)
Critic Opinion: "Both a baroque thriller set in New York's ballet demimonde and a portrait of artistry as schizoid perfectionism, Darren Aronofsky's new film percolates parallel lines of fine madness-but then, doubling down on duality is this movie's raison d'etre." - David Fear, Time Out

"A near-irresistible exercise in bravura absurdity, Darren Aronofsky's Black Swan deserves to become a minor classic of heterosexual camp--at the very least, it's the most risible and riotous backstage movie since "Showgirls." - J. Hoberman, The Village Voice
BOT Sez: “One of my favourite films from the last years. Nobody seems to do those simple psycho-thrillers anymore which were around when I grew up (and had to watch them on TV when my parents were out) - and here is one of them, and one of the best: A good old thriller, without any superfluous side-stories or characters or hinted-at deeper meanings, but with: A gorgeous soundtrack, beautiful photography (hope Libatique gets his Oscar someday, not only for Black Swan) and tight direction. Plus Natalie Portman in her most intense role ... superb. Vincent Cassel and Mila Kunis stand their own against her fury, great performances too. Winona Ryder and Barbara Hershey shine. Aronofsky seems to be able to drive his actors to optimum performances.Highly recommende, and: This makes a fine duo with "The Wrestler" for a beer-sodden home video evening!” - @IndustriousAngel
Commentary: Say hi to 2010, everybody! The lowest-ranking film from the decade's first year to make the list, separated by 190 points from the next two 2010 movies under it - one of the largest such gaps we have - is Darren Aronofsky's Polanski-inspired psychosexual freakout that committed hard enough to its campy insanity to earn the respect of industry awards organizations; in one of those irresistible bits of box office trivia, it also ended up generating enough hype to become Fox's highest grossing movie of the year. Sadly, similar success did not await Aronofsky's later mother!, which also received only 51 points from us.
