Director: Guy Hamilton
“ This is the first in a series Bond film that's completely uninspired. Blofeld's *beep* weak, and the clone plot is so stupid. I don't why Sean chose to break his promise and returned to the series, but it certainly wasn't the attraction of the new story. ” - kevinchengxin

“ Not one of the better Apes movies. It seems completely pointless to exist. Does it mean that with Ceaser's ruling, world turned out better than the original timeline and earth would be saved? If so, then make that point clearer, instead of an unbigious tear at the end. ” - kevinchengxin

The girl is cute, though, really put through some tough scenes. What got me is how bold it was for everyone involved to shoot such a picture. ” - kevinchengxin

“ Nothing about this movie could compete with the original, however, this is also enjoyable, especially compared with later sequels. This is the kinda sequel that doesn't even try to do anything new. All it did was follow the original routine and hoped to make nearly as much money. ” - kevinchengxin

Director: John Carpenter
“ Being a fan of the slasher genre, I have to acknowledge what this movie established. This is the perfect slasher, never been topped.

“ This is the superhero movie that started it all, that made it all serious. Till this day, Christopher Reeve's portrayal is the only plausible evidence that Clark's disguise is believable.

Director: Ridley Scott
“ The late 70s was no doubt the golden era for science-fiction, where the greatest franchises start up one after another. Alien stood out for the perfect combination of sci-fi and horror, and for the first time, it's nothing cheap. The characters are amazingly established, the plot is anything but predictable. In fact, we never get to know who's the last survivor or even if anyone will survive the first time we see this. Hail Ridley Scott! ” - kevinchengxin

Rocky struggles in family life after his bout with Apollo Creed, while the embarrassed champ insistently goads him to accept a challenge for a rematch. (119 mins.)
“ Not one of my preferable Rocky movie in the series, but certainly a good one. It just doesn't seem to have a good place between 1 and 3,4, especially the plot is a simple assurance that Rocky does beat Applo in the end, something they could've simply started 3 with. ” - kevinchengxin
