Two People Rank all of Guy Ritchie's Movies (4)

I'm only posting the 4 I've seen. Love this quote though:

But it makes a certain amount of sense because Ritchie’s movies, even the better ones, aren’t really about anything. They are pure sensation, style for the sake of style. That’s not always a terrible thing: At his best, his flicks have the rush of whippets … even if they come with the accompanying loss of brain cells.

This man just vomits on the screen but hey, mate, it's kinda fun!

9. Aladdin (2019)

A proud member of that vast, underwhelming category of bearably mediocre blockbusters, this remake of the ’90s smash has the same issue as so many of Disney’s redos: It mimics the plotline of the original but fails to summon up the same magic.

OP note: I really loved this movie not even gonna lie. It's so oddly absurd.

7. Rocknrolla (2008)

This is all ridiculous and familiar, but you can sort of sense Ritchie stretching his legs and starting to feel like himself again. RocknRolla plays like an audition to get to make bigger movies again, and one has to say: It worked.

OP note: You can go back to making small movies like this again, just saying sir. if I can make a suggestion...a seuqel.......to this one......please.

5. Sherlock Holmes (2009)

Pitched to the multiplex masses, this Sherlock Holmes is too overblown and earsplitting to capture the nuance of Arthur Conan Doyle’s hero, and all told, it’s engaging enough while feeling rather anonymous.

OP note: I don't remember this movie at all besides Mark Strong. He was in this, right?

3. The Man From U.N.C.L.E

Ultimately, it’s all a little too shallow and disposable, but you won’t feel bad giving it a try on a lazy Sunday afternoon.

OP note: Wrong.


Imagine getting onto USC's ARPANET and telling these lies!

My list:

1. Rocknrolla
2. Aladdin
3. The rest
