Robert De Niro is one of those actors destined to win a lifetime achievement award someday (maybe quite soon). While the 72-year-old Academy Award winner has starred in a wide selection of comedic movies over the last decade or two, the ratings have not favored this decision. This chart, courtesy of the Washington Post‘s Cristina Rivero, shows how his percentage of highly-rated films has dipped since his switch from the more serious roles of his youth. Few would question that De Niro has been a comedic staple in the 21st century, mixing his tough-spirited characters with ridiculous storylines, but has he lost prestige in the process?

Felix Vasquez Jr. of Cinema Crazed doesn’t seem to think so. “Director James Plumbs’ zombie picture is yet another terrible and dunderheaded indie zombie film that fails to re-think the sub-genre.” The full review can be read here. Based on audience reviews, it received 5% positive reviews.

By now, you’ve probably seen ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’. We only make that assumption because it quickly became the fastest film to reach $1 billion in revenue, breaking a record for movie records in the process. Seeing how it had been ten years since the previous installment in the Star Wars movie series, special effects naturally came a long way.
