Really good film detailing the story of Jackie Robinson played by Chadwick Boseman. Harrison Ford gives a great performance. Really intense action scenes.
#4 – Flu

This is a surprisingly well-written and well-directed film. The story explores the struggles of humanity not only against the epidemic ravaging the citizens but also the morale choices of other humans.
#3 – Ender’s Game
Director: Gavin Hood
Great adaptation with some of the best character development. Very good performances and a spectacular ending.
Now these last two were incredibly hard for me to decide. I really enjoyed them both. Both have some really good acting, great dialogue,and great chemistry among the cast. There are really good action scenes great stories and are sequels. These two films I rated as “Too Cool For Words” and will definitely buy them on DVD.
#2 – The Hunger Games: Catching Fire

This film was better than the first. Jennifer Lawrence is a total badass as Katniss. The characters were really cool, the action was amped up, a story that dives deeper into the mechanizations of the world.
#1 – The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug
Director: Peter Jackson
Continues the adventures of Bilbo and the dwarves, Has some of the best action scenes, great dialogue, really good visuals, and great shots. Smaug was completely badass, he was menacing and witty. Martin Freeman kills it as Bilbo.
