The General (1926)
A Classic piece of Cinema History!
This film should have a required viewing for film study classes! It is a landmark in film! It has great cinematography for one thing! The way this was filmed it allowed you to watch the film from buster Keaton's point of view! Also when it was day the film had a bronze tint to it but when it was night it had a purplish tint to it! I thought this was an interesting idea! you could tell that some modern day directors were influenced by this classic! It was a bit hard to follow the plot in certain points but it still was a good film! I feel that this is a classic piece of cinema history and film buffs that are interested in the history of film should view this one! It is not a comedy like some of Buster Keatons other films though. It is more of a drama film with some slapstick moments.
Blood and Wine (1996)
Interesting Neo-Noir Caper film that is worth a watch!
This film was interesting! It is not the best but i feel that it is still worth a watch! The acting was good (especially by Jack Nicholson!) and the cinematography was great! It really captured the beautiful scenery of Miami,Florida! Michael Caine also plays an interesting character! This movie has an A List cast but it seems to be lacking something... Don't get me wrong it was very entertaining but i feel that it was missing something... This is a very underrated film and it should be watched by film buffs and fans of Jack Nicholson and Michael Caine! Also the ending was extremely ironic and surprising! the film had a 1970's film noir kind of feel too. This is one of the better caper films that i have seen and like i said before, in my opinion it is definitely worth a watch!
One of the most Underrated Films of all time!
I have always been a big Chloe Grace moretz fan! She is one of my favorite actresses and even though this film got bad reviews i decided to give it a try and i was Surprised!!! It is extremely underrated! It had an all star cast, an interesting story, great Cinemotagraphy, Realism and Extremely good acting! Chloe Grace Moretz gave one of her best performances so far in this film! She puts actresses 15 years older than her to shame! I highly recommend watching this movie! It can be depressing and , yes it does have some minor flaws but this is a great film! I loved it! This only made me respect Chloe Grace Moretz even more! The Cinemotagraphy really captured the 1970's era and it felt real too! I don't understand how this film got such bad reviews! I Highly recommend this to Fans of Chlloe Grace Moretz! This Film I Worth Seeing Just for her Performance alone! Bravo!
Lost in Translation (2003)
This film was great! It was very poignant, touching, and in some instances funny! Both Bill Murray and Scarlett Johansson give great performances! Sometimes you don't need a complicated plot to make a great movie! this films plot is extremely simple, but that is the beauty of it! It feels realistic, because there is no CGI or special effects. this film feels like it could easily be based on a true story because it is something that could happen! It felt like a documentary! The cinemotagraphy really captured the beautiful scenery in tokyo, Japan. This is a must see for any film buff because this is one of those rare films that really proves you don't need a plot that is full of action and fantasy! you could make a great film out of the simplest script! I highly recommend this film! Anna Faris and Giovanni Ribisi also had small roles in this film! I recommend this to any fans of film!
A Must See!!!
This is one of Angelina Jolie's best performances! This film has great acting performances from both Angelina Jolie and John Malkovich. I don't understand why this film is so underrated! It has Great acting and great cinematography. the Cinemotagraphy was great! It perfectly captured the time period and the music also fit there scenes in this film well! Yes, some of Clint Eastwood's films may have been a bit better than this but this film is still excellent. In my opinion, i would not listen to the negative reviews. i would recommend this to fans of Angelina Jolie, fans of John Malkovich, and fans of Clint Eastwood's work as a director! This was truly a great film! Bravo!
On the Waterfront (1954)
An Excellent Crime Drama Film with a Christian Message
This is without a doubt one of the greatest movies of all time! This is one of Marlon Brando's best performances! Marlon Brando plays terry, an ex prize fighter that has a brother named Charlie who works for the local mob. Terry must decide whether or not he will do the right thing and risk his life by turning the mobsters in or do the wrong thing and keep quiet. Lee J. Cobb also gives a good performance as the mob boss Johnny Friendly who practically owns all of the people that live in the small sea trade town on the waterfront. Eva Marie Saint also gives a great performance in her first movie role. The Christian message that is in this film is that you should always try and do the right thing no matter what. I highly recommend this to any fan of Marlon Brando or any fan of crime drama films. This truly is a classic film and this is a must see for any Film Buff. I also recommend this film to Christians because of the nice Christian message that this film conveys. Bravo!
Being John Malkovich (1999)
i would like to start off by saying that this film is extremely overrated! I found some of the characters reactions to things to be extremely unrealistic and absurd. i was constantly aware of the fact that i was watching a film and that can be very distracting! i thought that things were overblown and extremely exaggerated in every way. The reason why i gave it 3/10 instead of 1/10 is because it was a unique idea but it was poorly executed and could have been done better. It is the weirdest film i have ever seen and i have seen a lot of films! i have seen about 600 now! I regret watching it and i expected more from Cameron diaz and john cusack. the acting was also bad but that could be contributed to the poor writing not the actors fault. It just felt over the top for me. It is supposed to be a comedy but it is almost never funny and this film has an extremely weird sense of humor and you are expected to laugh at situations that aren't even funny!
An Excellent Film in every way!
This film is excellent in every way! Robert Shaw, Roy Scheider, and Richard Dreyfuss, have great performances in this film. Robert Shaws performance stands out the most. this film also felt extremely realistic partly because the cinematography was so great it felt like you were are the boat with them hunting a killer shark! Also whenever a suspenseful moment would happen it feels like you were in danger! The soundtrack helped with the suspense also. I highly recommend this to film buffs because it is a must see and is one of the greatest! It has Adventure, suspense, action, drama, and even thriller elements in it! I always loved the ocean, so i really enjoy this film. It really does feel like you are in a boat hunt a killer great white! This film is a must see! Bravo!
C'era una volta il West (1968)
One of the Greatest Westerns of all time!
Director Sergio Leone really did a great job on this particular spaghetti western! First off, the cinematography was simply amazing! It just captured the American West in the late 1800's time period perfectly! It was beautifully filmed and it really felt like you were in the old American West! Also the music in this movie was great. It was composed by Ennio Morricone who is known for the music in the man with no name trilogy that starred Clint Eastwood. The acting was also pretty good, especially by Henry Fonda who played a villain for the first time in this film and it had great duel scenes. Charles Brosnan played the character Harmonica ( he earned this nickname by playing the same tune on his Harmonica whenever he is about to duel with someone.) Even though this film is a bit long (175 minutes) it was well worth the time for me. This was a great film and i would recommend this to fans of Spaghetti Westerns, fans of director Sergio Leone and fans of Henry Fonda.
The Great Dictator (1940)
A poignant Dark comedy
This was a great dark comedy! This was the first Charlie Chaplin film that i have seen that was not a silent film! It had the same goofiness and deadpan humor that was in some of Chaplin's other films such as city lights except a lot of the humor had a darker tone to it. It wasn't extremely dark like some of todays comedies but it was still a bit dark. Fans of the film Doctor Strangelove should enjoy this film. This film is about a Jewish barber and a dictator (both played by Charlie Chaplin) this film also conveys the themes of hope, peace, and equality. as with all of Charlie Chaplin films this film has a very poignant tone to it. fans of Charlie Chaplin should definitely check this film out. Every gag exhibited in this film was funny and almost none of the gags fell flat. Bravo!
A Great film!
This movie was excellent! It had great special effects, great acting, and a great plot! Jackie Earle Haley's Rorschach is now one of my favorite super hero characters ( next to heath Ledgers joker and Christian bales batman of course!) I don't understand how this film got so many negative reviews from audiences and film critics alike! This film is the perfect mix of sci-fi,action, drama, and mystery. i would recommend this too fans of the dark knight trilogy. There was never a dull moment in this film! Also it had great cinematography that captured really cool shots of special effects scenes! I think that fans of superhero films should definitely see this one! Bravo!
The Machinist (2004)
An excellent psychological Drama with a strong Christian message!
Christian Bale flawlessly plays the role of Trevor reznick, a machinist who is withering away because he refuses to eat or sleep. It really messes with your head at some points but it has many Christian subliminal messages in it. i can not tell you about the Christian tones in this movie without spoiling the hole film for you, but if you are Christian i would watch it. Even the film poster shows that there are very subtle Christian references in it by putting a cross over Christian bales face on the movie poster! i would recommend this film to fans of Christian bale or fans of psychological drama films! It really was a very interesting character study and it is now one of my favorite films! Bravo!
Blade Runner (1982)
A Dazzling Sci-Fi Film!
This film was great! the special effects were extremely realistic and Harrison Ford and Rutger Hauer had great performances! The film was a fast moving one that was filled with dazzling special effects! i find it hard to understand how anyone can dislike this film! It had great action sequences too! Harrison Ford plays a futuristic cop named rick deckard whose job is to hunt down replicants (robots with human skin) and assassinate them. they call these special cops Blade Runners. Rutger Hauer plays the leader of the gang of Replicants. Daryl Hanna also has an interesting part as one of the Replicants. I would recommend this to fans of sci-fi films, fans of Harrison ford, or fans of Rutger Hauer.
City Lights (1931)
A comedy that is actually funny!
In this film Charlie Chaplin plays the role that he is most known for: the tramp. This was my first Charlie Chaplin film and i really enjoyed it. there were to many gags in this film to count but almost all of them were funny unlike some of today's comedies were all of the gags seem to either be unfunny or just fall flat! This comedy tells the heartwarming story of a tramp who tries to make money so that he can pay for a blind flower girls eye treatment so that she could see again. The tramp always seems to get himself into some kind of trouble where ever he goes! i highly recommend seeing this! It is not boring at all and it is very funny! Bravo!
The Cable Guy (1996)
Unfunny But intriguing.
this movie was very unfunny to me and personally i don't think Jim Carey was the best choice for the part. i thin robin Williams or someone else may have been better for this film. i like Jim Carey,don't get me wrong, i just don't think that he was best for this role. i will say that the idea of the film was a unique and intriguing one but i think that Jim Carey went a little overboard with his performance. i was expecting much more from this and i am a bit disappointed but i found the humor almost to dark to laugh at. watch it and make your own opinions. After all I'm sure people like this movie, and I'm sure some people hate movies that i like. if anything i would try watching it just because it had a unique idea!
The Shawshank Redemption (1994)
This is one of those rare films that is flawless! no matter how hard i try i cant seem to find anything wrong with it. it has a great script, great acting, and a feel good tone to it. Morgan freeman and Tim Robbins are great this film is a must see! This is truly one of the greatest films ever made! i highly recommend it to everyone! It also has pretty good cinematography and it feels real. You get lost in the story and it feels like you are apart of the story! This definitely deserved all of the awards that it received. Even though it has a long running time it still manages to run smoothly without any dull moments. Bravo!
Winter's Bone (2010)
Great acting, Cinemotagraphy, and Gritty Realism!
the acting is amazing. It felt like a documentary and you couldn't even tell that the cast were acting it felt so real. It is full of gritty realism and has a cool neo noir feel to it. The cinematography was also amazing. It really captured the cold feel of the movie. the film is also sort of like a character study. The film also had gritty realism in it and scenes that make you cringe. It just felt so real. You really felt bad for the characters. The acting performances of Jennifer Lawrence and John Hawkes stand out the most. This film may be a bit slow to some people but if you really take the time to watch it, I'm sure you will end up enjoying it. At first the film seems a bit dull but it gets better as the movie progresses. All in all this was a great film and Jennifer Lawrences performance was flawless. John Hawkes performance was also very impressive. It definitely deserved the awards that it received.
There Will Be Blood (2007)
A Superb drama film with a Christian message
This was a great film! the acting was great, and it gave a Christian message about how greed can turn a nice hard working man into an evil person. It is about a prospector who becomes a big time oil tycoon and rejects God so he loses his way. It has beautiful cinematography and Daniel day lewis really did do a great job playing this character. Even the film poster hints that this film has a Christian message. the poster has a picture of a cross on it. It was a great film that i would recommend to Christians , fans of Daniel day lewis, or people that just want to see a fantastic film with beautiful cinematography and great acting. Daniel day lewis really did earn the Academy Award for best actor that he received.
Bicentennial Man (1999)
This film was great! i decided to re-watch this after i learned of Robin Williams Passing and this film was just as good as i remembered. It has a great storyline and it has a plot that is very poignant, touching, and sad.This film also has some pretty good special effects. It is about a robot named Andrew who wants to become a man. Robin WIlliams was one of the best comedians around and he will be missed. I highly recommend this movie to fans of Robin Williams, Fans of sci-Fi Dramas, or to someone that is interested in watching a touching and wonderful film. I thought this would be a good film to watch in honor of Robin Williams because it is one of his most touching films. R.I.P. Robin Williams. Make God Laugh.
Hot Shots! (1991)
One of the better spoofs!
This film is one of the better spoofs that are out there. It is not like the spoofs that came out in recent years such as epic movie, meet the spartans, or vampires suck. those films are just vulgar garbage. This one is above that. it isn't as good as airplane but it is still a worthy spoof. It fulfills its purpose in making audiences laugh. Lloyd Bridges had one of the funniest characters. His character in this film is almost as funny as his character in the two airplane movies. Yes, spoofs aren't really good movies. they were designed for the purpose of being funny. if you are looking for a funny comedy to watch than i recommend this.
A surprisingly good Drama Film!
I was not expecting this to be as good as it was. Tobey Maguire really showed how good his acting skills can be. He gave a surprisingly emotional and dramatic performance as a veteran who is struggling with the horrors of war and what he had to do during the war to survive. Jake Gylanhaul and Natalie Portman give great performances also but Tobey Maguire's performance stands out the most. The reason i gave it 9/10 instead of 10/10 is because the film started off slow but all in all it is definitely worth watching. It is a movie that fans of Tobey Maguire, Natalie Portman, or Jake Gylenhaal fans should see. Fans of drama/war films should also watch this.
Gangs of New York (2002)
A Great Film!
This film was great! It had great acting performances and the acting performance that i think stands out the most is Daniel Day Lewis' performance. He plays the brutal gang leader Bill the Butcher. The actors performances alone make this film a must see. Another reason why this film is a must see is because it has good dialog and a great plot. Plus Martin Scorcese did a great job directing this film. It shows how new york was started. This film is highly underrated and i think it is a great film. Leonardo DiCaprio's performance stands out also. Any fan of Martin Scorcese, Daniel Day Lewis, or Leonardo Dicaprio should see this. Even though it is a long film it is never boring and it is very hard to lose interest in it.
Bronenosets Potemkin (1925)
This silent film was surprisingly good. I was expecting a boring story with many plot holes and with a confusing plot that was complicating and hard to follow. What i got is a dramatic Film that was surprisingly good and ahead of its time. I rated it 9/10 because it was great and clearly ahead of its time but it wasn't perfect. I think that anyone interested in early film making or film studies should watch this because this was definitely a landmark of a film. The plot was very interesting and simplistic so it wasn't easy to lose interest. It is about sailors that rebel against their bosses that are in control of the battleship Potemkin. The rebellion reaches the shores and soon all sailors begin to rebel. It was very interesting and i think film buffs should watch this. it isn't to long of a movie either so it does not get really draggy or anything.
The Aviator (2004)
One of the most underrated films of the 2000's
I do not understand why everyone hates this movie! This is one of Leonardo Dicaprios best performances. Cate Blanchet is also great as Katherine Hepburn. This film is so well directed and filmed by Martin Scorcese that it makes you feel like you are in the time period that the movie takes place in. This film has a very nostalgic feel to it. I especially liked how Martin Scorcese used music that matched the time period and filmed it using the color techniques that were used in the era this takes place in. It made the movie have a older feel to it like you were really in the time period. This is one of Martin Scorceses most underrated films. I especially loved the scenes that showed Howard Hughes directing movies because that sort of thing really interests me and it is cool to see how they did visual effects back in the 1920's. Any fan of martin Scorcese should watch this and anyone that is interested in Howard Hughes should watch this also. It does seem a little long and draggy in certain parts but it didn't bother me because i found this film so interesting. This is now one of my favorite films because it is beautifully directed and acted and it gives you an insight on early film making and on Howard Hughes and the people he associated with such as Ava Gardner and Katherine Hepburn. Bravo!
The Cabin in the Woods (2012)
A Very Original and Unique Film! Its Not really a Horror Film
the first thing that i will say is that this film is very unique and is sort of a parody or homage to almost every genre of horror films ever made. You can not really take this film seriously. It is a parody but it is not the kind of Parody where its all funny and has tons of stupid jokes in it. It is a serious film but you could still see obvious nods to other films. I am not a big fan of horror films. i have not seen many but i saw this one because it is such a unique film and i'm getting bored of seeing films that are obviously made to be like a film that has already been made. You don't have to be a fan of horror films. you could be like me where u don't care for horror films. you should see this one because it is so original and because it has very strange plot twists. I personally dislike most horror films but like i said this is not really a horror film at all. it is a parody of them.
