Recently I read a Ray Bradbury story - or someone else - which had astronauts floating through space in a cluster of meteors - much like this movie.

“ A great trilogy - Pusher 2 is more emotionally driven than this original and I enjoyed that more than this one - but again, it's the original that started the series so it gets the picture.

Pusher 3 is a little slow - but I like Milo - also with milk - so I watched number 3 but it's not the same without someone in the movie who has respect tattooed on the back of their head. ” - mikey_asteroid

Former Green Beret John Rambo is pursued into the mountains surrounding a small town by a tyrannical sheriff and his deputies, forcing him to survive using his combat skills. (93 mins.)
Director: Ted Kotcheff
“ Like Predator - this is Stallons action movie - Rocky is Rocky - but this is Rambo and it's a little hard to understand stallone at the best of times let alone when he's crying on the floor after shooting a quadzillion bullets at the police. And like Rocky (which he wrote) Stallone wrote the screenplay (not the novel) with some other chaps to this so again, we need to give credit where credit is due. A good mans movie while munching popcorn - or some ribs and a beer. ” - mikey_asteroid

In a dystopic and crime-ridden Detroit, a terminally wounded cop returns to the force as a powerful cyborg haunted by submerged memories. (102 mins.)
Director: Paul Verhoeven
“ The sequels aren't worth watching but this is robocop - there is a graphic version and a non-graphic version to the movie, the graphic version is kind of more fitting to the storyline, but apart from that doesn't detract from the overall movie. ” - mikey_asteroid

Scarface (1983)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.3/10 X  
In Miami in 1980, a determined Cuban immigrant takes over a drug cartel and succumbs to greed. (170 mins.)
Director: Brian De Palma
“ I wont quote what others have already quoted a quadzillion times - the sound track is just about as good as the movie. I don't know why later in life Pacino went a little crazy in his movie selection maybe he changed the guy who reads the scrips for him - but this is one of the movies with pacino at his best in my opinion. After this all the directors seem to enjoy getting Pacino to do crazy 10 minute monologues with him shouting his head off (Devils Advocate) which seem to serve no purpose at all. ” - mikey_asteroid

Silent Hill (2006)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.6/10 X

Director: Christophe Gans
“ I enjoy a good horror movie but 99% of them are just stupid - this is a good horror movie based on a real American town (the coal fire not the sexy zombie nurses - which is a shame) ” - mikey_asteroid

Solaris (2002)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.2/10 X  
A troubled psychologist is sent to investigate the crew of an isolated research station orbiting a bizarre planet. (99 mins.)
“ I'm not a big George Clooney fan (Syriana - the thin red line (only because he had 2 seconds worth of film time who knows what the point of that was) are 2 other good movies) This is a remake - the original is unwatchable in my opinion but i'm no movie critic so who knows what special things they saw in the original. A slow paced sci-fi movie with emotional and psychological undertones and no beach balls or aliens. ” - mikey_asteroid
 
63.
Sorcerer (1977)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.7/10 X  
Four unfortunate men from different parts of the globe agree to risk their lives transporting gallons of nitroglycerin across dangerous South American jungle. (121 mins.)

Director: Richard Donner
“ HA HA HA it's Superman - I know it's Superman that's why it's in my list - everyone knows Superman and this is the movie. The rest are all stupid (except when Superman becomes mortal in number 2 or 3 i forget) but I think i cried when Superman cried in this movie (we all feel superman's pain even though he's bullet proof) - but my tears never went back in my eye sockets. ” - mikey_asteroid

Director: James Cameron
“ Don't get me started on all the stupid bits in number 2 and I admit i might be the only person who enjoyed number 3 but only in as much as the whole world gets wiped out by smart robots (a theme in this list) - number 4 i only saw once so i guess it wasn't that good - but the original is still the best for raw destruction - one day it will also come true. The robots - not the time travel.... ” - mikey_asteroid

Two siblings visit their grandfather's grave in Texas along with three of their friends and are attacked by a family of cannibalistic psychopaths. (83 mins.)
Director: Tobe Hooper
“ This would have to be a horror movie by all definitions of the word. The starting credits are enough to beat the pants of 95% of all other horror movies with their entire movie time - the last 30 minutes would have to be the worst nightmare of everyone alive. - Haven't seen any of the sequels. Apparently who ever made this movie knows how to turn a profit ;) maybe they should get him to run the EU. ha ha :D

Based on a number of real life serial killers - so it's not like todays stupid horror movies that are all about zombies and plagues. ” - mikey_asteroid

The aging patriarch of an organized crime dynasty transfers control of his clandestine empire to his reluctant son. (175 mins.)
“ Even if a bolt of lightening should strike my son I'm going to blame a number of people in this room.

Slow paced gangster movie - number 2 is more enjoyable but a little drawn out to be in the list so again I give it to the movie that started the trilogy. We all probably want to be the Godfather but are really Fredo in real life. ” - mikey_asteroid

Director: Robert Harmon
“ Good emotional thriller - cinematography is great - the sound track is great and someone wants to die - which is always great. Has been of course remade - but the original is the best. We can all relate to both main characters in this i'm sure. I don't know what happened to Rutger Hauer after this and Bladerunner - must have the same script reader as Al Pacino now days. ” - mikey_asteroid

Director: Geoffrey Murphy
“ Like I am Legend one guy is alive on the planet - or so it seems. The movie is slow and a little odd, but it's one of those movies where i wish it would happen in real life and I'd be the only person on the planet then you could do anything you ever wanted. ” - mikey_asteroid

The story of the original Mercury 7 astronauts and their macho, seat-of-the-pants approach to the space program. (193 mins.)
Director: Philip Kaufman
“ A good movie about the past and the space race and fast planes and all that manly stuff. Could have been done in a completely different boring way but i guess the director knew what he was doing as it's an enjoyable movie to watch, and learn. ” - mikey_asteroid

An insurance salesman/adjuster discovers his entire life is actually a television show. (103 mins.)
Director: Peter Weir
“ I was never a fan of Big Brother - but this is the ultimate version of Big Brother. Apparently i read there was some guy in America documenting his son 24 hours a day 7 days a week - since he was born - but i forget who it was and i have no interest in looking it up, but i'm sure in the future this will also become reality. ” - mikey_asteroid

Director: James Gray
“ I always like Joaquin Phoenix movies (U-Turn is another good one) not sure why he pretended to be a singer but i'm not a celebrity so who knows how they think - but I always enjoy an emotionally charged movie - especially if it has to do with someones life being either turned upside down or improved in some way - lets me learn without actually ending up in jail myself. ” - mikey_asteroid

Terrence Malick's adaptation of James Jones' autobiographical 1962 novel, focusing on the conflict at Guadalcanal during the second World War. (170 mins.)
Director: Terrence Malick
“ A war movie with out much killing. A lot of long shots and a lot of emotional voice overs. Not one for the action packed movie goers out there, but good if your a pacifist and find yourself in the middle of a battle ground. If anyone can tell me the point of George Clooney being in the movie for a whole 10 seconds for no purpose then i'm all ears (or eyes) i can accept it if he was a director and wanted to make a cameo but really what was the point in having him in the movie? ” - mikey_asteroid

“ I like Kurt Russell and Val Kilmer - (Heat - Felon - Wonderland) and i like a good cowboy movie that isn't 3 hours long (clint eastwood ring any bells (or pocket watches)) and it's based on reality so I guess even if other people don't like the movie it still taught me something. ” - mikey_asteroid

But this movie is worth watching just for the soundtrack. ” - mikey_asteroid

Director: Joseph Kosinski
“ The first movie was good but seems a little dated these days - so we will still credit it but you don't need to have watched it to enjoy this movie.

I have no idea why the director seemed to need sexy girls to dress the guy in this and then walk backwards like some stupid retards - but apart from that it's a great movie - and the soundtrack is even greater. ” - mikey_asteroid

Director: Zack Snyder
“ The comic is better than the movie because of its sheer scope and the animated comic series (what ever the technical name is) is better than the movie just because it's exactly word for word the comic - but this movie is still good and enjoyable for its visuals - the ending is a little more upsetting than the comic but with half the story line missing i guess it was the only way to finish the movie. ” - mikey_asteroid

Maybe i can watch it in my retirement home when i get there if there are no zombies. ” - mikey_asteroid
