Now Playing At Theaters: Top 10 Movies Ranked and Reviewed

The top 10 at the box office Oct 4-6, 2019 via Box Office Mojo

Thanks to the Regal Unlimited Plus plan that I signed up for on August 12, 2019 and Kara signed up for a week or so later, I’ve been able to see almost every movie that has come out since (and we’ve seen 60%+ together). Am keeping a running Regal Unlimited Movie List at Letterboxd as well.

27 different movies seen in the theater since August 12, 2019

Have actually seen 28 movies using the unlimited pass, because I watched Rambo: Last Blood twice. I am considering seeing Judy again as well and trying to get my wife to see, too, but she has a hangup seeing anything I’ve already seen.

The only movie in the current top 10 box office that neither of us have seen is WAR. It’s showing at one theater nearby, and plan to see it soon.

“And when Alexander saw the breadth of his domain, he wept, because there were no more worlds to conquer.” – Hans Gruber from Diehard

The only bummer thing so far about the Regal Unlimited plan is that there aren’t enough movies available to see. Once you’ve seen them all it is either go and see something another time, or just wait until the next Thursday or Friday for new movies to be released. This is typically a minimum of two new movies each week. This doesn’t line up with the total movies being released, but how many screenings are available in the Seattle/Tacoma area. I needed to attend an independent theater to see Judy on opening day.

Note: we typically only recommend seeing movies that are ranked at least three stars or better. However, you should judge for yourself what you want to see, not use anybody else’s opinion. Reviews are subjective based on a wide variety of factors. In our case, our review criteria is based on how entertained we were. We go to movies to be entertained. That means that sometimes we will like movies that others don’t. In some cases, maybe even movies that are universally panned we found to be entertaining.

As for professional critics? We tend to disagree with them more often than not. For example, Rambo: Last Blood was panned by the critics, but audiences, including us, enjoyed it and were entertained.

  1. At least with Ad Astra (my review is coming out tomorrow at 9:00 GMT) and Hustlers, we have pretty much the same taste.


    1. Thank you for commenting! Ad Astra to us was like a trip to a boring art gallery. I will give it credit for being great to look at, but it just was so dry and pretentious. Hustlers? I think most of the hype there is because of J-Lo and she looks fantastic, but we don’t rate movies highly just because a 50+ woman looks good (and she does look good). There is soooo much more they could have done with that story.

      1. Thanks to you for linking our Joker review on your site. You can read my Ad Astra review later on to get some juicy details. Regarding Hustlers, I agree. She’s good to look at but that’s it. It’s a mediocre movie. And all that Oscar talk surrounding it is ridiculous.
