Dvds I Own in No Real Orderby BumblegumRoyalty89 | created - 30 Apr 2012 | updated - 01 May 2012 | Public
Figure I'd share a list of the giant collection of dvds I own. This DOES NOT include file sharing collection (that'll come up much much later) I'll include a tiny review, but since there are so many dvds it'll take a while to add them all. Let me know what you think please comment
The only real order is maybe by Genre (I have them in CD binders), So there will be ALOT of horror then ALOT of Comedy, and so on and so forth. It's going to take a while to add them all, but I will say when it is complete.

1. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (2001)
PG | 152 min | Adventure, Family, Fantasy
Rescued from the outrageous neglect of his aunt and uncle, a young boy with a great destiny proves his worth while attending Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
Votes: 518,779 | Gross: $317.58M
As I child I loved the first Harry Potter, but as an adult now I see it's faults. It's still a good movie, but it feels too cartoon-y in comparison to how dark the rest of the series is.
2. Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (2002)
PG | 161 min | Adventure, Family, Fantasy
Harry ignores warnings not to return to Hogwarts, only to find the school plagued by a series of mysterious attacks and a strange voice haunting him.
Votes: 449,047 | Gross: $261.99M
Better film than Sorcerer's Stone, that being said, the villian still has a very schticky James Bond feel, with that in mind I still love the Harry Potter series.
3. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (2004)
PG | 142 min | Adventure, Family, Fantasy
It's Harry's third year at Hogwarts; not only does he have a new "Defense Against the Dark Arts" teacher, but there is also trouble brewing. Convicted murderer Sirius Black has escaped the Wizards' Prison and is coming after Harry.
Votes: 444,197 | Gross: $249.36M
Honestly the first real break in the cartoon-y villiany. There really is no villian in this one....just a lot of deception.
4. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (2005)
PG-13 | 157 min | Adventure, Family, Fantasy
A young wizard finds himself competing in a hazardous tournament between rival schools of magic, but he is distracted by recurring nightmares.
Votes: 445,547 | Gross: $290.01M
My only complaint is that they should have just called it "Scenes from Goblet of Fire" rather because it wasn't really a full adaptation of the book.
But between this and Deathly Hallows they are the favorites of the series in my opinion
PG-13 | 138 min | Adventure, Family, Fantasy
With their warning about Lord Voldemort's return scoffed at, Harry and Dumbledore are targeted by the Wizard authorities as an authoritarian bureaucrat slowly seizes power at Hogwarts.
Votes: 412,223 | Gross: $292.00M
My least favorite of the films, and I think that's because it was my favorite of the books, and it didn't deliever for me. Imelda really stole the show as Umbridge, and that was really the only saving grace for me.
6. Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (2009)
PG | 153 min | Adventure, Family, Fantasy
As Harry Potter begins his sixth year at Hogwarts, he discovers an old book marked as "the property of the Half-Blood Prince" and begins to learn more about Lord Voldemort's dark past.
Votes: 377,498 | Gross: $301.96M
The first battle of Hogwarts is very much missing in this film (granted Deathly Hallows makes up for this), other than that it was a real step up from Order of the Phoenix, I really enjoyed the romantic intrests in the film, reminding us why we all love this characters oh so much.
PG-13 | 146 min | Adventure, Family, Fantasy
As Harry races against time and evil to destroy the Horcruxes, he uncovers the existence of three most powerful objects in the wizarding world: the Deathly Hallows.
Votes: 384,331 | Gross: $295.98M
Call me biased because I love Harry Potter but Part 1 and 2 are a perfect conclusion to this epic film saga, it made up for the lackluster feeling left from the fifth, and sixth films, granted some people will think the first part is slow moving, but I tend to disagree. If you watch both parts together as one film, it is excellent and doesn't disapoint.
I loved the grittiness of the first part, and the brutality of being on their own with all of these evil men and women hunting them down.
PG-13 | 130 min | Adventure, Drama, Fantasy
Harry, Ron, and Hermione search for Voldemort's remaining Horcruxes in their effort to destroy the Dark Lord as the final battle rages on at Hogwarts.
Votes: 634,455 | Gross: $381.01M
This was perfect, the second part had it all, action packed battle sequences, romance, heartbreak, an EVIL villian that seems to be the embodiment of all things cruel, sadistic, and evil in the world, and some humor.
This film was most exciting to see in the Imax, it blew my mind how great and pleasing a conclusion this film was.
9. Zathura: A Space Adventure (2005)
PG | 101 min | Action, Adventure, Comedy
Two young brothers are drawn into an intergalactic adventure when their house is hurled through the depths of space by the magical board game they are playing.
Votes: 77,708 | Gross: $29.26M
It's cute enough, even if it is just Jumanji in Space. I do enjoy the brother's relationship in this film, it feels very real. Kristen Stewart just sort of exists in this film.
10. Ghostbusters (1984)
PG | 105 min | Action, Comedy, Fantasy
Three former parapsychology professors set up shop as a unique ghost removal service.
Votes: 303,914 | Gross: $238.63M
What's not to love about this film, visually it was quite amazing (especially for it's time), it was funny, it was scary, and it had quite a conclusion.
This was a perfect hybrid of both horror and comedy, and it never really switched too often (as many horror/comedy films do) and remained both funny and scary at once.
11. Ghostbusters II (1989)
PG | 108 min | Action, Comedy, Fantasy
The discovery of a massive river of ectoplasm and a resurgence of spectral activity allows the staff of Ghostbusters to revive the business.
Votes: 156,961 | Gross: $112.49M
Again great visuals, very funny, very scary.
It does feel more horror-oriented than the first, and some of the character interactions feel sort of forced.
On a personal note, Viggo scared me much more than the dog people in the first Ghostbusters
12. Sleepy Hollow (1999)
R | 105 min | Fantasy, Horror, Mystery
Ichabod Crane is sent to Sleepy Hollow to investigate the decapitations of 3 people with the culprit being the legendary apparition, the Headless Horseman.
Votes: 291,464 | Gross: $101.07M
Beautiful Burton-esque imagry.
I remember going to see this when I was 10 years old and being scared out of my pants.
But grown up what really sticks out to me is the classic Agatha Christie style of murder mystery, while remaining a gothic horror that explores some rather frightening concepts.
13. The Black Cauldron (1985)
PG | 80 min | Animation, Action, Adventure
A young boy and a bunch of misfit friends embark on a quest to find a dark magic item of ultimate power before a diabolical tyrant can.
Votes: 25,273 | Gross: $21.29M
I remember liking this a lot more when I was younger, but grown up I can appreciate the story, but the characters annoy me more than anything, specifically Gurgi, the ending is kind of sweet and sad, but again it's Disney so you have to expect that sort of thing.
14. The Incredible Hulk (2008)
PG-13 | 112 min | Action, Adventure, Sci-Fi
Bruce Banner, a scientist on the run from the U.S. Government, must find a cure for the monster he turns into, whenever he loses his temper.
Votes: 361,691 | Gross: $134.52M
This played much better than Ang Lee's Hulk (which by no means was a BAD movie, it just wasn't a great comic book movie), however it was in no way a perfect movie.
Edward Norton was a good choice for Bruce Banner, I most specifically think of American History X and Primal Fear when I think about Norton's great way to play unbalanced characters.
That being said in comparsion to the rest of the Marvel Universe films it really is the weakest link, nothing really goes on until the last part of the film, and until then it just feels like a Bourne Identity chase movie.
15. James and the Giant Peach (1996)
PG | 79 min | Animation, Adventure, Family
An orphan, who lives with his two cruel aunts, befriends anthropomorphic bugs who live inside a giant peach, and they embark on a journey to New York City.
Votes: 53,583 | Gross: $28.93M
I loved this a lot more as a child then I do grown up.
It feels too over the top, and not in a good way (Roald Dahl is a master at being dark and over the top, but this was a different sort of medicine). The characters were so one dimensonal, the Centipede was a douchebag, the Spider was gothic, the Grasshopper was an intelectual, the Earthworm was scared of everything, the Aunts were just cruel just because they are (not even in a menacing way, but rather like Bluto from Popeye where they are just naturally just mean by default).
The ONLY thing I really still like about this film is the stop motion, and the underwater sequence, both were really well done and look beautiful, given the rest of the material is rubbish.
16. Alice in Wonderland (I) (2010)
PG | 108 min | Adventure, Family, Fantasy
Nineteen-year-old Alice returns to the magical world from her childhood adventure, where she reunites with her old friends and learns of her true destiny: to end the Red Queen's reign of terror.
Votes: 338,873 | Gross: $334.19M
This wasn't a BAD movie, it just wasn't as great as it could have been.
All of the actors play really great characters with a lot of dimension and humor to them. It has that real quirky and pretty Burton look, but with all of that said and done, it felt too much like Chronicles of Narnia over Alice in Wonderland.
17. The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (2008)
PG-13 | 166 min | Drama, Fantasy, Romance
Tells the story of Benjamin Button, a man who starts aging backwards with bizarre consequences.
Votes: 508,861 | Gross: $127.51M
Beautifully shot, quite original (it is REALLY LOOSELY based on a F. Scott Fitzgerald short story, but stands on it's own), granted you could say it's very similar to Forrest Gump (and while this is going to inspire ALOT of hate) but I honestly enjoyed this much more than Gump (still a great movie though none the less). I don't remember ever crying this much at the ending of a movie.
An epic love story that spans over eighty years, David Fincher also proves what a masterful film maker he is, and how he can direct practically any genre of film.
I think Brad and Cate share great chemistry together (they've played off each other before) and you can feel that coming through the screen (both the joy and heartbreak of their time together)
18. Bicentennial Man (1999)
PG | 132 min | Comedy, Drama, Sci-Fi
An android endeavors to become human as he gradually acquires emotions.
Votes: 97,178 | Gross: $58.22M
It is a very emotonial movie, Robin Williams plays the character of Andrew very well, however the rest of the cast feel waaaay too Hallmark Movie of the Week around him.
That being said it's a very cute movie definately worth checking out, if only once.
19. Corpse Bride (2005)
PG | 77 min | Animation, Drama, Family
When a shy groom practices his wedding vows in the inadvertent presence of a deceased young woman, she rises from the grave assuming he has married her.
Votes: 211,105 | Gross: $53.36M
It was a great movie, but it was in NO WAY a kids movie, it has some rather dark themes, and a somewhat strange (not quirky Burton strange) Charles Dickins vibe to it, which is weird for a kids movie.
It didn't quite hold up to the amazing ground breaking film that is Nightmare Before Christmas, but it is still a very good film, with memorable characters, and songs.
20. Star Trek: First Contact (1996)
PG-13 | 111 min | Action, Adventure, Drama
The Borg travel back in time intent on preventing Earth's first contact with an alien species. Captain Picard and his crew pursue them to ensure that Zefram Cochrane makes his maiden flight reaching warp speed.
Votes: 105,234 | Gross: $92.00M
The best of the TNG films, I find it hard to believe that there are any creatures in Sci-Fi as menacing as the Borg (exception being the Xenomorph in Alien).
The film works great for the uninitated over any of the other Trek films (exception being the Reboot) it provides a lot of humor, intensity, and a great story to boot.
21. X-Men (2000)
PG-13 | 104 min | Action, Adventure, Sci-Fi
Two mutants come to a private academy for their kind whose resident superhero team must oppose a terrorist organization with similar powers.
Votes: 504,600 | Gross: $157.30M
What is not to love about the original X-Men?
Seriously I'd love to know.
It is an adult themed story disguised as a comic book extravaganza, the themes of segregation, racism, homophobia, and genocide are VERY visable, and played well in the trials of the mutant race.
22. X2 (2003)
PG-13 | 134 min | Action, Adventure, Fantasy
The X-Men band together to find a mutant assassin who has made an attempt on the President's life, while the Mutant Academy is attacked by military forces.
Votes: 452,101 | Gross: $214.95M
Even better than the first, I found myself quite disturbed by the villian's motivations in this film, I find it strange that this was marketed for children, when I feel it was quite violent for a PG-13, and the themes of genocide were far too intense for younglings.
23. X-Men: The Last Stand (2006)
PG-13 | 104 min | Action, Adventure, Fantasy
An all-out war looms when the discovery of a cure for mutations draws a line between the followers of Charles Xavier and those of Magneto.
Votes: 425,140 | Gross: $234.36M
It wasn't as amazing or deep as the previous two installments, but as an action movie it was quite entertaining. I'd rather a child see this over the first two films.
It was cute, for what it was, but no really brain candy in this one, just eye candy.
24. The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993)
PG | 76 min | Animation, Family, Fantasy
Jack Skellington, king of Halloween Town, discovers Christmas Town, but his attempts to bring Christmas to his home cause confusion.
Votes: 251,400 | Gross: $75.08M
This is a classic for my generation, it really looks beautiful even by today's standards. I hardly see anyone hating on this movie, people say it's overrated, sure, but I don't think I've ever heard anyone HATE on this movie. Hell my 65 year old grandmother loves this movie.
25. Inception (2010)
PG-13 | 148 min | Action, Adventure, Sci-Fi
A thief, who steals corporate secrets through the use of dream-sharing technology, is given the inverse task of planting an idea into the mind of a CEO.
Votes: 1,687,556 | Gross: $292.58M
This was awesome, I loved everything about this movie.
I am a sucker for dream analysis. It looks goofy on paper sure, Dream Thieves breaking into people's minds,. But it sooooo deep and so intense.
Christopher Nolan really makes great brain candy films that stick with you long after you watch it.
26. Sherlock Holmes (2009)
PG-13 | 128 min | Action, Adventure, Crime
Detective Sherlock Holmes and his stalwart partner Watson engage in a battle of wits and brawn with a nemesis whose plot is a threat to all of England.
Votes: 522,856 | Gross: $209.03M
I enjoyed this a lot more than I thought I would. Guy Richie has a unique and incredible style of film making that really shines through in this movie.
Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law play off each other so well, and are excellent additions to the legendary roles as Holmes and Watson.
My only complaint is that the ending felt slightly disapointing, I was quite hoping for a more intense climax (which to be fair Mark Strong was building up for throughout the entire fim).
Still a good winter blockbuster.
27. The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen (2003)
PG-13 | 110 min | Action, Adventure, Fantasy
In an alternate Victorian Age world, a group of famous contemporary fantasy, science fiction, and adventure characters team up on a secret mission.
Votes: 151,232 | Gross: $66.47M
This was entertaining enough, but I was expecting much more.
Like The Avengers with literary characters. It felt too condensed. But still the visuals were beautiful, and the action sequences were choregraphed very well.
28. Drag Me to Hell (2009)
PG-13 | 99 min | Horror, Thriller
A loan officer who evicts an old woman from her home finds herself the recipient of a supernatural curse. Desperate, she turns to a seer to try and save her soul, while evil forces work to push her to a breaking point.
Votes: 169,599 | Gross: $42.10M
I liked this a lot, much more than most modern horror movies. I think this is because, this film uses a lot of 80's horror tricks. It has a great blend of horror and humor, a lot of gross out gags, and a lot of jump moments. The ending made me laugh A LOT more than I thought I would.
29. V for Vendetta (2005)
R | 132 min | Action, Drama, Sci-Fi
In a future British tyranny, a shadowy freedom fighter, known only by the alias of "V", plots to overthrow it with the help of a young woman.
Votes: 894,497 | Gross: $70.51M
I didn't like it the first time I saw it, and I think that's because I was expecting a big action adventure comic book movie.
That being said the second time and onward I loved it because I normally love dystopian sci-fi, and anti-establishment films.
Natalie Portman and Hugo Weaving have excellent chemistry together, and the mystery surounding all of the characters is quite excellent.
I love this movie, I can't even explain it without spoiling it, but I love love love it.
30. Star Trek: Nemesis (2002)
PG-13 | 116 min | Action, Adventure, Sci-Fi
The Enterprise is diverted to the Romulan homeworld Romulus, supposedly because they want to negotiate a peace treaty. Captain Picard and his crew discover a serious threat to the Federation once Praetor Shinzon plans to attack Earth.
Votes: 64,120 | Gross: $43.25M
This was dreadful, the only enjoyable thing about this I remember was the wedding scene towards the beginning (only reason for the 3/10), the rest of the film I was just waiting for it to end. It was my least favorite of the Trek films. It was a waste, waste, waste, waste.
31. 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968)
G | 149 min | Adventure, Sci-Fi
Humanity finds a mysterious, obviously artificial object buried beneath the Lunar surface and, with the intelligent computer H.A.L. 9000, sets off on a quest.
Votes: 493,742 | Gross: $56.95M
Very intense, and mind blowing. I want advise all of you out there, do not under any circumstances watch this film on any drugs because it will freak you out, and you will not be able to handle it.
32. Lara Croft: Tomb Raider (2001)
PG-13 | 100 min | Action, Adventure, Fantasy
Video game adventurer Lara Croft comes to life in a movie where she races against time and villains to recover powerful ancient artifacts.
Votes: 173,281 | Gross: $131.14M
I remember being very hyped up to see this movie when it came out, the trailers looked awesome, and everything about it was everything an 11 year old boy wanted to see.
I loved it then, but now it just is a mindless popcorn movie that has entertaining moments, however it really doesn't stand the test of time.
33. Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life (2003)
PG-13 | 117 min | Action, Adventure, Fantasy
Adventurer Lara Croft goes on a quest to save the mythical Pandora's Box, before an evil scientist finds it, and recruits a former Marine turned mercenary to assist her.
Votes: 113,633 | Gross: $65.66M
The only reason this gets a 2 is because it was shot very well, however everything about it was *beep* the poster was *beep* the movie was *beep* the story was *beep* everything about this movie was *beep* and just like the old saying goes "You can't polish a turd".
34. The X Files: I Want to Believe (2008)
PG-13 | 104 min | Drama, Mystery, Sci-Fi
Mulder and Scully are called back to duty by the FBI when a former priest claims to be receiving psychic visions pertaining to a kidnapped agent.
Votes: 82,935 | Gross: $20.98M
It was entertaining, but it wasn't a great come back for the series, and as an X-Files fan it just disapointed.
35. A.I. Artificial Intelligence (2001)
PG-13 | 146 min | Adventure, Drama, Sci-Fi
A highly advanced robotic boy longs to become "real" so that he can regain the love of his human mother.
Votes: 261,969 | Gross: $78.62M
I liked this Robot to Human story much more than Bicentenial Man, it had some heartbreaking imagry, and I remember at the age of 11 crying at this movie and feeling really sad for a while because of it. It is a great movie, and is incredibly under rated, I liked Hailey Joel Osment more in this than anything else he has done.
36. Jurassic Park (1993)
PG-13 | 127 min | Adventure, Sci-Fi, Thriller
During a preview tour, a theme park suffers a major power breakdown that allows its cloned dinosaur exhibits to run amok.
Votes: 712,760 | Gross: $402.45M
Some of the best visual effects you will see in a 90's film, or even modern film. These dinosaurs were breathtakingly beautiful, and scary all at the same time.
The intensity of the second and third act still give me goosebumps.
37. The Lost World: Jurassic Park (1997)
PG-13 | 129 min | Action, Adventure, Sci-Fi
A research team is sent to the Jurassic Park Site B island to study the dinosaurs there while another team approaches with another agenda.
Votes: 313,924 | Gross: $229.09M
Doesn't hold up as well as the first film, it didn't really bring anything new for me. Goldblum was entertaining, and the ending was entertaining (if not a Godzilla homage), but it didn't feel nessicary.
38. The Witches (1990)
PG | 91 min | Adventure, Comedy, Family
A young boy stumbles onto a witch convention and must stop them, even after he has been turned into a mouse.
Votes: 28,240 | Gross: $10.36M
Remember how earlier I said Roald Dahl is a master at dark humor and menace? This is proof of that.
For a kids film this is quite spooky, and it holds a lot of entertainment value for adults as well.
The lovely Ms. Huston and hilarious Mr. Atkinson steal the show in this film, as a vicious monster, and an overly anal retentive hotel manager.
PG-13 | 178 min | Adventure, Drama, Fantasy
A meek Hobbit from the Shire and eight companions set out on a journey to destroy the powerful One Ring and save Middle-earth from the Dark Lord Sauron.

Two young couples traveling across the backwoods of Texas searching for urban legends of murder end up as prisoners of a bizarre and sadistic backwater family of serial killers.
Votes: 65,883 | Gross: $12.63M
I snuck in to see this when I was 13, I loved it, it was beyond sick and brutal.
I love the style even now, it is cruel, horrorfying, and hysterical
But the funny thing about Zombie is you either love or hate his films. And I love them.
43. Hellboy (2004)

A demon, raised from infancy after being conjured by and rescued from the Nazis, grows up to become a defender against the forces of darkness.
Votes: 269,005 | Gross: $59.62M
You really have to see the director's cut of the film to really appreciate it. Del Toro really is an excellent visual director. Pearlman is hysterical and all around bad ass as Hellboy
44. Hellboy II: The Golden Army (2008)

The mythical world starts a rebellion against humanity in order to rule the Earth, so Hellboy and his team must save the world from the rebellious creatures.

I really enjoyed this film, much more than I thought I would, the only complaint I really had is there is no real sympathy for any of the characters.
46. Secret Window (2004)
PG-13 | 96 min | Drama, Mystery, Thriller
A writer is accused of plagiarism by a strange man, who then starts haunting him for "justice."

An American serving in the French Foreign Legion on an archaeological dig at the ancient city of Hamunaptra accidentally awakens a mummy that wreaks havoc on him, and his crew.

A great example on good use of visual effects in horror film, without being to overly gory.
48. The Mummy Returns (2001)

The mummified body of Imhotep is shipped to a museum in London, where he once again wakes and begins his campaign of rage and terror.
Votes: 269,762 | Gross: $202.02M
Was this really nessicary? Especially all of that 'Past Life' *beep* It looked very good, and had some humorous moments (the brother really is the saving grace of the film), but aside from that it really is skipable.
49. Bad Santa (2003)

The pitch black humor is just so joyously warped.
50. Requiem for a Dream (2000)
R | 102 min | Drama
The drug-induced utopias of four Coney Island people are shattered when their addictions run deep.
Votes: 653,266 | Gross: $3.64M
This is one of my favorite movies,
my ex-boyfriend used to be a heroin addict so this film really touched a lot on the pain of drug abuse, especially as some one who witnesses someone they love killing themselves for a high. It shows how addiction kills (not even just heroin, but TV, eating, speed, etc.), and is shot in a beautiful way.
I can't even explain without sounding like a nut why I love this movie, but damnit I do.
51. The Game (1997)

David Fincher's underrated thriller, you can't beat that multiple twist ending. I still get shocked at the last ten minutes of the movie. So good.
52. Firefly (2002–2003)
TV-14 | 44 min | Adventure, Drama, Sci-Fi
Five hundred years in the future, a renegade crew aboard a small spacecraft tries to survive as they travel the unknown parts of the galaxy and evade warring factions as well as authority agents out to get them.
I love this show. Joss Whedon is awesome.

This is great, they really don't make movies about canceled tv shows, but holy hell if this is proof that there can be life after the end of a series, this is the best example to give.
54. Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1992)

I'm biased, I love the show too much, and SMG as Buffy. But it is still a very entertaining prelude to one of the best horror/comedy shows ever.

Michael Bay doesn't make good movies story-wise, they are usually very predictable, however that is not to say that they are not filled to the brim with eye candy. Armageddon looks great, and has a great soundtrack, with that said, it isn't anything AMAZING, nor should it be watched in that mindset.

Keanu Reeves is in no way an amazing actor, and he almost ruins this otherwise amazing movie. Al Pacino is terrific, Charlize is terrific, you can't say much else without spoiling the twists, but it is great.

61. Ghost Adventures (2008– )
TV-PG | 45 min | History, Sci-Fi, Thriller

Votes: 260,261 | Gross: $75.98M
Great visuals do not make a great movie, the story was stale, and the acting was below par. Why does Revees get lead roles? I like how hell looked, but that was about it.
67. It (1990)

In 1960, seven pre-teen outcasts fight an evil demon who poses as a child-killing clown. Thirty years later, they reunite to stop the demon once and for all when it returns to their hometown.

I think it will go down as a masterpiece for this generation. Heath Ledger was mind blowingly horrorfying in it (i'd say the same thing if he were alive today) and storywise I'd say it out does all of the previous Batman films out today.

I loved this movie.
I loved it more than Scarface, I felt more compassion and sympathy towards George Jung than Tony Montana (who in my opinion deserved what he got from those Cock-a-roaches).
The ending is a lot more heartbreaking than Scarface, and the stylistic you can't even compare it.
