Director: David Fincher
“ This is number 1 on my list because every scene in this movie is not only brilliant, but just plain perfect. This is the real best film ever made. Just tell or ask someone you know about this film. ” - terrellrobinson71
American Hustle (2013)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.3/10 X  
A con man, Irving Rosenfeld, along with his seductive partner Sydney Prosser, is forced to work for a wild FBI agent, Richie DiMaso, who pushes them into a world of Jersey powerbrokers and mafia. (138 mins.)
“ After "The Fighter" and "Silver Linings Playbook", David O. Russell has officially made a masterpiece. In this almost true story about the ABSCAM operation, con man Irving Rosenfield (Christian Bale) and his partner Lady Edith Greensly (Amy Adams) are forced to work for FBI Agent Richie DiMaso (Bradley Cooper) in order to take down corrupt politicians and a mobster who are trying to build up some casinos in Atlantic City. Along the way, the mayor of New Jersey, Carmine Polito (Jeremy Renner) joins in and there's Irving's unpredictably quirky wife Roslyn (Jennifer Lawrence) who could possibly bring it down. It looks and feels like it was made in the 70's and filled with sharp bravado and clever dialogue, this stingingly funny and downright stunning film will linger in your memory long after it's over. It's a tribute to the painstaking soul of filmmaking that is actually kind of brilliant. ” - terrellrobinson71

When the menace known as the Joker emerges from his mysterious past, he wreaks havoc and chaos on the people of Gotham, the Dark Knight must accept one of the greatest psychological and physical tests of his ability to fight injustice. (152 mins.)

Pulp Fiction (1994)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.9/10 X  
The lives of two mob hit men, a boxer, a gangster's wife, and a pair of diner bandits intertwine in four tales of violence and redemption. (154 mins.)
“ This is probably my favorite Quentin Tarantino masterpiece. It's a series of interconnecting stories that follows two hit men (John Travolta and Samuel L. Jackson), their boss' drug-crazed wife (Uma Thurman), a boxer (Bruce Willis) on the run and lots of amazing surprises that manages to twist and turns itself into an wickedly sharp comedy that's hilarious, exhilarating, intoxicating and sometimes a little harrowing. It's a testament to Tarantino's ability of creating amazing characters, originally quirky dialogue and unsettling events and even after 20 years, it still manages to be a classic in the world of filmmaking. ” - terrellrobinson71

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.2/10 X

“ The best musical ever to other musicals, like "Hairspray", "Chicago" and "Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street". This was before the whole High School Musical experience came through. ” - terrellrobinson71
The King's Speech (2010)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.0/10 X  
The story of King George VI of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, his impromptu ascension to the throne and the speech therapist who helped the unsure monarch become worthy of it. (118 mins.)
Director: Tom Hooper
“ A phenomenon and a celebration! Colin Firth really did deserve that Oscar for his performance as a tortured soon-to-be-king who has a stammering problem. That is, until, he recieves help from speech therapist Geoffrey Rush and his queen of a wife Helena Bonham Carter. Splendid good film. One of the best movies I've ever seen. The R-Rating however is a little surprising. Deal with it. ” - terrellrobinson71
Sin City (2005)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.0/10 X  
A film that explores the dark and miserable town, Basin City, and tells the story of three different people, all caught up in violent corruption. (124 mins.)
“ The imagination of Frank Miller's graphic novels meets the stunning vision of director Robert Rodriguez in this awesome movie event that's not to be missed. It's jam-packed with so many interesting characters and impressive storylines including a renegade (Mickey Rourke as Marv) out for revenge on the ones that killed the woman (Jaime King as Goldie/Wendy) he loved, a cop (Bruce Willis as Hartigan) with a bum ticker who tries to protect a young stripper (Jessica Alba as Nancy) from a sadistic psychopath (Nick Stahl as Yellow Bastard) and a group of hookers (Rosario Dawson as Gail and Alexis Bledel as Becky) and a sexy assassin (Devon Aoki as Miho) lands in hot water after the death of a cop (Benicio Del Toro as Jackie Boy) and only one man (Clive Owen as Dwight) can clear out the evidence, including the cop's head that still manages to talk a lot of smack. Miller and Rodriguez (with special guest Quentin Tarantino) direct this extremely marvelous movie (in stunning black-and-white with some hints of color) that manages to keep you on the edge of your seat and the bloody violence is very uncompromising, but you have to admire the combination of Miller and Rodriguez's styles and the old-fashioned 1940's look is spontaneously amazing. You won't forget it, I promise you. ” - terrellrobinson71

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.8/10 X

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.8/10 X

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.8/10 X  
After a stint in a mental institution, former teacher Pat Solitano moves back in with his parents and tries to reconcile with his ex-wife. Things get more challenging when Pat meets Tiffany, a mysterious girl with problems of her own. (122 mins.)
“ Here's David O. Russell's romantic dramedy that's worth prescribing your medication for. It's the story of Pat (Bradley Cooper), a man suffering from undiagnosed bipolar disorder and is trying to get back his (EX)wife. That all changes when he meets Tiffany (Jennifer Lawrence in her Oscar-Winning performance), a woman who also has issues after the loss of her police officer husband. The two then bond when she wants him to be her partner for a dance competition in exchange for him to send a letter to his wife. Their feelings grow stronger for one another and they find themselves falling for each other in this funny and intelligent film about breaking through mentality, gaining your own perspective about life and to also find a brand new start even when it's least expected. The cast including Robert De Niro, Jacki Weaver and Chris Tucker as Pat's support system is superb. ” - terrellrobinson71

Lawrence's performance makes this movie extremely watchable, along with incredible performances from a all-star cast, non-stop thrills and lots of emotional drama. And as a fan of the books, I encourage you to believe the hype. ” - terrellrobinson71

Once again, Oscar-winner Lawrence carries this franchise through and through as Katniss and new director Francis Lawrence brings a more relaxed approach this time in this intense and intriguing movie. Again, believe the hype. ” - terrellrobinson71

“ The best film of 2011 and the best Harry Potter film since the first four. David Yates and screenplay writer Steve Kloves makes this as full-fledged and fast-paced as ever. The cast is excellent and we have some of our fan favorites in this movie. Those are the best moments. This is the end of a 14-year journey where magic, love, live and death are a little bit closer to home. ” - terrellrobinson71

Writer- Director Michel Hazanavicius, who won an Oscar for his directing, infuses the film with magic and wonder. Plus, it features a cute dog named Uggie. This was one of the best films I've ever seen. I would love to see it again. ” - terrellrobinson71

With the help of a German bounty hunter, a freed slave sets out to rescue his wife from a brutal Mississippi plantation owner. (165 mins.)
“ Quentin Tarantino's 8th film is one hell of a movie about a former slave turned bounty hunter who teams up with another bounty hunter in order to rescue his wife from a cruel plantation owner and his renegade slave/butler. Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz, Leonardo DiCaprio, Kerry Washington and Samuel L. Jackson give fearless performances in this bloody, brutal, terrifying, hilarious and awe-inspiring Western disguised as a buddy movie. This movie is really off the chain. ” - terrellrobinson71

A coming-of-age story about a teenage girl in 1960s suburban London, and how her life changes with the arrival of a playboy nearly twice her age. (100 mins.)
Director: Lone Scherfig
“ Thanks to Carey Mulligan's star-making performance, this movie warmed my heart, made me laugh, and thought it would be cool to seek my education in life, too. Let's be honest, this is not a story about an older man preying on a 16-year-old girl, it's about a girl who's bored with life and looking for a way to escape, while falling for an older man, played wonderfully well with a terrific British accent by Peter Sarsgaard. ” - terrellrobinson71

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.8/10 X  
A look at the early years of boxer "Irish" Micky Ward and his brother who helped train him before going pro in the mid 1980s. (116 mins.)
“ The incredibly uplifting true story of boxer Micky Ward and his brother Dicky is a story that is definitely worth telling in David O. Russell's phenomenal film. Micky (Mark Wahlberg) has been trying to make his hometown of Lowell, Mass. proud, but it's hard for him because he's living in the shadows of his drug-addicted brother Dicky (Christian Bale in his amazing Oscar-Winning performance), whose only claim to fame was beating(?) Sugar Ray Leonard. When Micky gets his chance to be a champion with the help of beautiful bartender Charlene (Amy Adams, a stunner) and his father (Jack McGee), he finally finds the confidence and integrity to put Lowell on the map while also trying to keep his family (including his mom played by the brilliant Melissa Leo in her Oscar-winning performance and 7 off-the-wall sisters) together. And yes, it's about two brothers who are very different but has the same passion for life and boxing in this amazing film that's triumphant, funny and intimate, mostly all at the same time. ” - terrellrobinson71

Director: Stephen Chbosky
“ One of the best movies I've ever seen so far this year about a depressed freshman who gets a chance to lighten up when he becomes friends with a couple of seniors who tells him that it's okay to be yourself. Logan Lerman, Ezra Miller and "Harry Potter"'s Emma Watson stars in this high-spirited drama based on the beloved book by Stephen Chbosky who adapted and directed this movie based on his own book. It's funny as hell, enchanting, heartwrenching and breathtaking. See it to believe it. ” - terrellrobinson71

“ It remains of one of the best animated movies I've seen in years. I think it remains a classic in the Disney Animation lab. It's even breathtaking, especially if you seen it in 3D, like me. This is the only movie that I got emotional at when I was watching it at the movies in 3D. It's really a good thing after all. ” - terrellrobinson71
Les Misérables (2012)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.6/10 X

It's about a movie for our times about Jean Valjean (Hugh Jackman), a recently freed convict who saves a factory worker's daughter from cruelty which leads into the chain of events that ends with the Rebellion of France. With an all-star cast including Anne Hathaway, who won an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress for her role as Fantine, Russell Crowe, Amanda Seyfried, Eddie Redmayne and Samantha Barks, amazing direction by Tom Hooper, and breathtaking musical numbers, this enthralling, powerful and haunting musical is certainly the best film of 2012. ” - terrellrobinson71

“ A brilliant thriller from the hit-making Coen Brothers and based on Cormac McCarthy's novel with a excellent cast and some sweaty-palms-pulse-pounding-heart-pumping moments. But watch your step, haters. If you don't love this movie, Anton Chigurh will come in there and will graphically murder you. ” - terrellrobinson71

Jennifer Lawrence from "The Hunger Games" plays Ree, a 17-year-old girl who takes care of her siblings in order to look for her father who skipped out on bail. With a drug-addicted uncle (John Hawkes) and a few other surprises, "Winter's Bone" is truly a cinematic pleasure that shouldn't be missed. ” - terrellrobinson71
