Director: Peter Chelsom
“ Love John Cusack & Kate Beckinsale in this one. the chemistry works. Again it's cheesy and a little predictable but it's well written, the secondary characters are fantastic and it's so far from reality it's almost science-fiction (and fun!) ” - Appearance
 
3.
The Postman (1997)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.0/10 X

Director: Kevin Costner
“ This movie is generally acknowledged as bad but I think it's good. It's not a masterpiece as Dances With Wolves that's for sure. I don't know why I liked it. Did I Have no high expectations? Do I generally like everything Kevin Costner does? Or was it branded "bad" because it was so far from its predecessor? ” - Appearance
 
4.

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.1/10 X

Director: Kevin Reynolds
“ Again Kevin Costner. At the time the most expensive blockbuster and a big letdown at the box-office if I remember correctly. I like it because it has great characters. Especially Dennis Hopper was a great villain but it has also touching performance by Jeanne Tripplehorn and the little Tina Majorino. I like it because of the great music by James Newton Howard. One of his best scores because it embodied so greatly this in water-covered world adventure. The script is not flawless with this map tatooed on the back of a little girl but the qualities outweigh the flaws ” - Appearance

“ I am a big fan of the french comic series where this movie is based on and even if I have to admit that the movie is not very good, I liked it because of the atmosphere. I think it's greatly to thank to the music of Archive. One of the only good choices the director (if he took this decision?) made. ” - Appearance

“ in the category romantic comedies you have the good movies and then the average ones. "Addicted to love" is part of the last group but I liked it anyway because the great chemistry between Matthew Broderick and Meg Ryan. The new/ex French boyfriend played by Tchéky Karyo is annoyingly great and the whole surveillance through telescope is a great cinematographic and romantic idea. ” - Appearance

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.1/10 X

“ the good part : Claire Forlani, Brad Pitt, Anhony Hopkins, the pitch : Death takes the body of his last 'victim' to experience life and falls in love with the daughter of his next 'victim' (played of course by the very philosophical and cynical Anthony Hopkins).
The bad part : Death enjoying peanut-butter like a child. A little bit too long and predictable ” - Appearance

Director: Michael Lehmann
“ Considered one of the worst movies of Bruce Willis I consider this one quiet a fun comedy. It doesn't take itself seriously and the whole Da Vinci theory is fun and completely over-the-top. I liked it so much I even bought the Gameboy-game of the movie at the time where I found the same goofy athmosphere. ” - Appearance
 
10.

Director: Stephen Belber
“ As I consider this movie a good and fresh take on romantic comedy (especially thanks to Steve Zahn's character and performance) marketing did a bad job as selling this one as yet another romantic comedy with Jennifer A. So prejudice against this movie is hard. ” - Appearance
