Christopher Nolan has undoubtedly become one of the best directors working today. His ability to deliver fresh, original stories and make movies feel grounded in reality has been unparalleled thus far. With his next film, Dunkirk, due out this summer, I thought now would be a good time to explore all of Nolan’s films to date and rank them from worst to best. As a warning, spoilers may be discussed so tread lightly. via Rankings: Every Christopher Nolan Movie Ranked from Worst to Best
First, let’s start with some general spoiler-free thoughts. I absolutely loved the original Guardians Of The Galaxy movie, so although I was looking forward to the sequel, I was slightly apprehensive because I wasn’t sure how they would develop the characters and plot established while also fitting it into the current Marvel Cinematic Universe. Infinity War is on the horizon and I wasn’t sure how much that would affect this film.
I wasn’t sure what to expect from the plot – I follow a few comic book sources so I knew the basic background to the new characters, but I was pleasantly surprised by how the film tied itself together.
The opening credits sequence is my favourite opening sequences of all time.
Don’t forget – there are five (yes, 5) post-credit scenes, so keep watching through the credits in order to watch them all. This means you’ll also get to watch several of the credits change from ‘I Am Groot’ to various phrases as well as revealing names in different sections throughout – this was a nice touch, picking up a pop culture reference and running with it.
Overall, I’m giving the film a 5/5 for its exploration of family, the relationships of existing characters and the seamless introduction of new characters. Similar to Rogue One I have a never-ending obsession for this latest addition to the MCU and I’m honestly not complaining.
I’m sure there will be those that disagree, but I found this to be one of the best “westerns” I’ve seen in 10 years. Before I get attacked for that statement, I do not classify Django as a “western.” However, this film does edge out Hateful Eight and Magnificent Seven. If you feel that I forgot something better, please let me know!
The story is set out in West-Texas. If you’ve ever been there, I’m sure you decided you probably aren’t going back. It tells the account of two brothers – neither of which with much going for them. Yet what they do have, is under the threat of bank foreclosure. Logically, the only thing they can do is rob…

As always, here is my “Review In Bullet Points” concerning the new epic space movie Rogue One – A Star Wars Story. The review is spoiler-free, so don’t be afraid to continue reading. I’m a huge Star Wars fan and I even like parts of the prequels, so keep that in mind!
- fantastic war action with great CGI effects
- a two-hour long fan movie, that pays tribute to the original trilogy
- funny references to the saga
- first half has some “boring” moments, but the last 45 minutes -> some of the best action ever
- good cast, some very likeable characters, but also some replaceable, unnecessary characters
- IT IS A MOVIE SET IN THE STAR WARS UNIVERSE!!!
My overall score for Rogue One is 7.5/10.
