An epic mosaic of interrelated characters in search of love, forgiveness, and meaning in the San Fernando Valley. (188 mins.)
“ Worst seven hours of my life. Yes, I know the runtime was "only" 188 minutes. I had to stop for multiple breaks. To kill myself. Repeatedly. ” - morganxiv

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 9.3/10 X  
Two imprisoned men bond over a number of years, finding solace and eventual redemption through acts of common decency. (142 mins.)
Director: Frank Darabont
“ Tim Robbins annoys the hell out of me. He goes for poignancy and depth, but just ends up looking like a confused retard. Look at him there, that furrowed brow - it's like he's trying to shit out some turd of profundity. I'm surprised he wasn't cast as Forrest Gump, it would've saved Tom Hanks the trouble of having to assume a new character. Morgan Freeman is pretty badass, but the fact that this film is rated the best of all time by imdb users just confirms its presence on this list. ” - morganxiv

Inception (2010)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.8/10 X  
A thief, who steals corporate secrets through use of dream-sharing technology, is given the inverse task of planting an idea into the mind of a CEO. (148 mins.)
“ I suppose this wasn't terrible. However, it certainly wasn't very good, either. The plot was just too lengthy and complex... it would have made a better novel. Very rushed, with none of the character development or sophistication of, say, The Matrix. I just didn't care. The ending was cheap. I think people are afraid to admit they didn't like it, hence they be labelled dim for "not getting it". If I read one more review by someone who can't spell declaring Christophen Nolan a genius, well... I'll be slightly disgruntled. ” - morganxiv

“ I don't remember much of this, and will probably watch it again. I love The Big Lebowski and The Man Who Wasn't there, but I disliked Fargo immensely. Probably due to Frances McDormand's character, though I like her in other things. ” - morganxiv
 
7.

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.2/10 X  
After his son is captured in the Great Barrier Reef and taken to Sydney, a timid clownfish sets out on a journey to bring him home. (100 mins.)
“ I live in Australia, so this film was hot shit when it came out. There was one genuinely touching scene, where Nemo's dad finds the single egg after the rest had been eaten or whatever. But between the seagulls, "He shall me my squishy", etc... just intolerable. ” - morganxiv
