The Departed (2006)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.5/10 X  
An undercover cop and a mole in the police attempt to identify each other while infiltrating an Irish gang in South Boston. (151 mins.)
Director: Martin Scorsese
“ This film was the perfect mix of mise-en-scène, screenwriting, actors' performances, and directorial work. I love everything about this film and the twist ending. If you like cop-crime dramas, this is for you. ” - pandothielraina
Kingdom of Heaven (2005)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.2/10 X  
Balian of Ibelin travels to Jerusalem during the crusades of the 12th century, and there he finds himself as the defender of the city and its people. (144 mins.)
Director: Ridley Scott
“ This film was full of beautiful mise-en-scène work; however, the story-line needs some fixing. A lot of the characters used in this film have been rewritten to work within the film. The actual main couple weren't together during the medieval era. As for the story-telling, I especially liked the director's cut, you learn more about Sibylla and Balian as characters and why they act the way they do in the film. Definitely a watch for any history buffs or period film fans. ” - pandothielraina
Pride & Prejudice (2005)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.8/10 X  
Sparks fly when spirited Elizabeth Bennet meets single, rich, and proud Mr. Darcy. But Mr. Darcy reluctantly finds himself falling in love with a woman beneath his class. Can each overcome their own pride and prejudice? (129 mins.)
Director: Joe Wright
“ As a Jane Austen girl, naturally this would end up on my list. Yes, it's a romantic drama that wouldn't sit well with most men but it has beautiful scenery and the screenwriter transferred Austen's most beloved novel quite well onto the screen. Filled with British accents and mannerisms, this film will make any American girl's heart flutter with joy as she watches two of the literary world's most inspiring characters fall in love. ” - pandothielraina
Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith (2005)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.6/10 X  
Three years into the Clone Wars, the Jedi rescue Palpatine from Count Dooku. As Obi-Wan pursues a new threat, Anakin acts as a double agent between the Jedi Council and Palpatine and is lured into a sinister plan to rule the galaxy. (140 mins.)
Director: George Lucas
“ I chose this episode to summarize the whole of the Star Wars Saga. The films are done beautiful and this just happens to be my favorite episode. I love the transformation of Anakin's character into that of Darth Vader's. I thought that the screenwriters transported Anakin's character so well. I really liked how they tied the first trilogy together with the second. Of course, the action is immensely entertaining and the storyline is just superb. Great for any sci-fi nerd or any fan of the science genre. ” - pandothielraina
The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King (2003)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.9/10 X  
Gandalf and Aragorn lead the World of Men against Sauron's army to draw his gaze from Frodo and Sam as they approach Mount Doom with the One Ring. (201 mins.)
Director: Peter Jackson
“ This film was chosen to represent the LOTR trilogy. Always loved Peter Jackson's directing, especially in this trilogy. He has done some amazing work with the mise-en-scène, dialogue, and plot. Another period film on the list, it embarks straight out of Hobbiton, a land of the JRR Tolkien's making. Superb camera and digital work. And amazing efforts by the cast. Definitely worth a watch. ” - pandothielraina
He's Just Not That Into You (2009)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.4/10 X  
The Baltimore-set movie of interconnecting story arcs deals with the challenges of reading or misreading human behavior. (129 mins.)
Director: Ken Kwapis
“ Another novel adaptation, this film is a great film for a girl's night in. Filled with cute couples and hard-learned lessons, this film has more than a lot of people give it credit for. A lot of women can relate to the characters and will, hopefully, learn something from their mistakes. Again, this isn't suitable for the average man but it's definitely a treat for anyone who doesn't mind a little romantic comedy. ” - pandothielraina
Forgetting Sarah Marshall (2008)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.2/10 X  
Devastated Peter takes a Hawaiian vacation in order to deal with the recent break-up with his TV star girlfriend, Sarah. Little does he know, Sarah's traveling to the same resort as her ex - and she's bringing along her new boyfriend. (111 mins.)
“ A great comedy for men and women. A bit raunchy at times, this film is full of laughs. More of a comedy rather than a romantic comedy, in my opinion, this film is full of funny moments and cute plot. Definitely a watch for anyone who likes a bit of sex-based comedy. ” - pandothielraina
The World Is Not Enough (1999)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.4/10 X  
James Bond uncovers a nuclear plot when he protects an oil heiress from her former kidnapper, an international terrorist who can't feel pain. (128 mins.)
Director: Michael Apted
“ Being a huge fan of James Bond since I was a child, I could not help but to put this on my list. Pierce Brosnan, in my opinion, is the perfect actor for James Bond. The story-line is interesting enough and with two hot babes in the film, who could resist? Probably more of a male-oriented film, this is a great watch for any spy-nerd! ” - pandothielraina
Mr. Brooks (2007)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.4/10 X  
A psychological thriller about a man who is sometimes controlled by his murder-and-mayhem-loving alter ego. (120 mins.)
Director: Bruce A. Evans
“ I'm not a huge Kevin Costner or Dane Cook fan; however, I really liked the aspect of this film. Seeing things from a killer's perspective was rather interesting and I loved how Costner portrayed the cynical yet somewhat well-liked Mr. Brooks. With a twist ending to keep you guessing, this is a watch for anyone who doesn't mind some dry-wit. ” - pandothielraina
Robin Hood: Men in Tights (1993)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.7/10 X  
A spoof of Robin Hood in general and Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves in particular. (104 mins.)
Director: Mel Brooks
“ A Mel Brook's film, this film is full of laughs and carefully used cliches. It pokes fun at itself and doesn't take itself too seriously which is what helps this film stay afloat. To any Mel Brooks watcher, you can bet that this will have you laughing and keep you interested with its quirky and upbeat attitude. Definitely worth an hour and a half of your time on a rainy day. ” - pandothielraina
Clueless (1995)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.8/10 X  
A rich high school student tries to boost a new pupil's popularity, but reckons without affairs of the heart getting in the way. (97 mins.)
Director: Amy Heckerling
“ A girl's film, this film is an adaptation of Jane Austen's "Emma" set in the modern (90s) world of Los Angeles. Featuring socialite Cher and Dion, we are thrust into the vapid and artificial world of California's richest teens. A bit like Heathers, we see a different type of life that we are not accustomed to. But don't let the plastic-ness of it all, turn you away. This film is full of cheesy morals and cute situations. Definitely a woman's flick but, again, if you don't mind cute 90s romantic comedies, then give it a try. ” - pandothielraina
Underworld (2003)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.0/10 X  
Selene, a vampire warrior, is entrenched in a conflict between vampires and werewolves, while falling in love with Michael, a human who is sought by werewolves for unknown reasons. (121 mins.)
Director: Len Wiseman
“ Kate Beckinsale gives a top performance in Underworld. Set in modern times, Kate portrays a vampire, Selene, who betrays her coven to save a human from his potential destiny against the vampire's life-long enemy, the lycans (werewolves). Full of intense action and some plot twists, this is an excellent film for the inner-geeks. ” - pandothielraina
Love Actually (2003)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.7/10 X  
Follows the lives of eight very different couples in dealing with their love lives in various loosely interrelated tales all set during a frantic month before Christmas in London, England. (135 mins.)
Director: Richard Curtis
“ A great British romantic comedy, this film features a few famous celebrities and their intertwining relationships. A bit like "Valentine's Day," Love Actually is centered around random friends in London, England a few weeks before Christmas. Much better than the previous film stated, Love Actually is a lovely comedy that will have anyone watching it question how much they would sacrifice for love. Mostly a girl's film, any man who watches this will get immense respect after watching this. It's really a great film. ” - pandothielraina
Waiting... (2005)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.8/10 X  
Young employees at Shenaniganz restaurant collectively stave off boredom and adulthood with their antics. (94 mins.)
Director: Rob McKittrick
“ A gross-out comedy, Ryan Reynolds, Justin Long, and Anna Faris headline this restaurant-based comedy about the staff of Shenanigan's, who like the restaurant's appropriately based title, bring us through a day in the life. Thrust into the serving world, we see what really goes on behind the door into the kitchens. A great film about more than what you may expect. A great watch for everyone. ” - pandothielraina
Resident Evil (2002)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.7/10 X  
A special military unit fights a powerful, out-of-control supercomputer and hundreds of scientists who have mutated into flesh-eating creatures after a laboratory accident. (100 mins.)
“ Based off the video-game with the same title, this film is full of intense action, thrilling moments, and a surprise plot twist. Let Alice (Milla Jovovich) bring you through the world of the Umbrella Corporation who let an uncontrollable disease leak out into the streets causing a zombified nation come alive. ” - pandothielraina
Waitress (2007)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.0/10 X  
Jenna is a pregnant, unhappily married waitress in the deep south. She meets a newcomer to her town and falls into an unlikely relationship as a last attempt at happiness. (108 mins.)
Director: Adrienne Shelly
“ A great film about more than a pregnancy, this film will leave you warm-hearted and wanting more. Yes, a chick's flick, this film focuses on a woman in a loveless marriage who wants more from life than her low-life husband, Earl. However, when Earl gets her pregnant on one drunk night, Jenna is forced to go through with the pregnancy and is delayed from leaving the small town. A cute romantic-comedy about finding yourself with a little help from your friends, this film is full of good laughs, cute moments, and the acting is impeccable. ” - pandothielraina
Hot Fuzz (2007)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.9/10 X

Upon discovering the town's secret after a few murders, Nicholas Angel (Simon Pegg) teams up with a co-worker turned friend to get to the bottom of the mystery. An awesome film full of action and laughs, this film will leave you wanting to watch it again and again... That is if you can understand through the British accents and dry wit. Definitely worth a watch. ” - pandothielraina
The Dark Knight (2008)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 9.0/10 X  
When the menace known as the Joker wreaks havoc and chaos on the people of Gotham, the Dark Knight must come to terms with one of the greatest psychological tests of his ability to fight injustice. (152 mins.)
“ Known for Ledger's ground-breaking performance of the Joker, the second film in Nolan's Batman trilogy is definitely worth the watch. Full of laughs, action, and a little bit of romance, this film is sure to be a hit with everyone. ” - pandothielraina
Sunshine (2007)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.3/10 X

Penelope (2006)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.8/10 X  
A modern romantic tale about a young aristocratic heiress born under a curse that can only be broken when she finds true love with "one who will accept her as one of their own." (104 mins.)
Director: Mark Palansky
“ A very cute film about accepting yourself for who you are rather than who you want to be, this film will leave you in stitches. It's cute, funny, and romantic, everything that makes an adorable romantic comedy. Not sure if it would be a big hit with the male population but if you don't mind some cheesy dialogue then you just may like it. ” - pandothielraina

A pretty, popular teenager can't go out on a date until her ill-tempered older sister does. (97 mins.)
Director: Gil Junger
“ A 90s romantic comedy based on Shakespeare's "The Taming of the Shrew," this is a cute, spunky film about everyone's loved rebellious teenager who falls for the bad boy. A rather funny film featuring a great performance by Heath Ledger and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, this film will be a great hit with any girly girl. May even strike a boy's fancy if he doesn't mind the fact that it is a romantic comedy. ” - pandothielraina

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.0/10 X

Set in London, England, a man must find his friends and save them, their mission: to head to the local pub, before the zombies tear them to bits. A great laugh, more of a comedy than anything else, this film is a staple in every zombie-fan's arsenal. ” - pandothielraina

Widow Dashwood and her three unmarried daughters, Elinor, Marianne and Margaret, inherit only a tiny allowance... (59 mins.)
“ Not exactly a film, more of a mini-series. I preferred this to the 1995 film version. Featuring a great cast, this Masterpiece Collection series spans Jane Austen's novel of the same title wonderfully with a perfected screen-play and score to match. Perfect for any Jane Austen fan. ” - pandothielraina

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.3/10 X  
In Nazi-occupied France during World War II, a plan to assassinate Nazi leaders by a group of Jewish U.S. soldiers coincides with a theatre owner's vengeful plans for the same. (153 mins.)
“ An awesome film filled with a top-notch cast. If gore isn't your thing, I would steer clear of a few scenes. I loved the story-line and the setting. It's a really interesting take on the war and has a lot of feminine yet wonderfully portrayed supporting actresses, especially by Melanie Laurent. Definitely worth a watch. ” - pandothielraina

Based on JK Rowling's Harry Potter novel series, the films embark on Harry's journey from a child to a man, all the while becoming a leader yet making a few mistakes along the way. It's a great piece of many people's childhood and should never be forgotten. ” - pandothielraina

Director: Roberto Benigni
“ A view of the second World War through an Italian lens, Life is Beautiful is an amazing film of one man's journey to protect his wife and child from the Nazi army. A truly ground-breaking and heart-wrenching film, this should be watched, at least, once. Recorded in Italian, be sure to watch with English subtitles. ” - pandothielraina

Reilly, Mary Steenburgen, and Richard Jenkins, this film has a great plot and cast, making it one of my favorite comedies. ” - pandothielraina

A young widow discovers that her late husband has left her 10 messages intended to help ease her pain and start a new life. (126 mins.)
“ A tear-jerker, this chick flick will make you cry during the entire film. Though an excellent film, be sure to have some tissues and ice-cream handy. I loved the story-line and the transition from novel to film. Probably not well-suited for men, this will be a great film to watch for a lesson in morality and the argument on which hurts more: love lost or the loss of love. ” - pandothielraina

A great film. ” - pandothielraina

Heading to the Southern states to bury his father, he meets Claire (Dunst) who shows him that there is more happiness in the world that he has left unnoticed. Inspiring him to take a road-trip with his father's ashes, Drew finds the meaning of life and happiness. Great film, definitely underrated with a great cast and score. ” - pandothielraina

Director: Sam Mendes
“ Beautiful film full of intentionally inspiring mise-en-scène, Sam Mendes gives an amazing directorial experience as we are thrust into Lester's world (Kevin Spacey). With a plot twist and a view on suburbian American, this film will have you questioning the idea of social and cultural behavior and how we tend to eradicate the idea of uniqueness for cultural norms. ” - pandothielraina

“ A cartoon-based film by Fox, Meg Ryan and John Cusack team up to portray Anastasia Romanov, a princess of Imperial Russia, and Dimitry, a servant boy who lived at her palace before the Russian revolution. A children's film, it forgoes history and creates its own story-line and plot yet still seems to follow some historical events. A wonderful film with a great ensemble, mise-en-scène, and score. This is sure to win any girl's heart who has a passion for childhood memories. ” - pandothielraina
