Blade Runner (1982)
4/10
Not so Great
14 July 2006
I don't know....to all of the fans out there i apologize to them for the stuff that i will be saying about this movie...complete disappointment...i thought i was really going to enjoy this movie...i had great expectations and was waiting to see this for a very long time now...what i got was crap...i did not see any point to this film whatsoever...he acting was good and the originality of the story was good but as far as the ending and the action scenes i just didn't see why everybody thought it was so good...and yes i might be pummeled for saying this...i didn't even think Ford fit the part at all...I'm actually surprised to see this movie rated over some of the other great flicks that are not in he top 250...

Legend (1985)
6/10
Could have been better, but it will do
1 May 2006
I've seen this movie every once in awhile on television every now and then. I remember whn i was very young being too scared to watch it because of Tim Curry's role as the Lord of Darkness. I am still convinced that if not for Curry's role of the Lord of Darkness than this movie could have been nearly a total loss. Although I like the movie I never found it to be appealing enough to watch over and over again. Other Then Curry's underrated character role I think it can be forgettable. Plus the effects are a lot lamer than most films at the time. I use my iamginationa nd just get past that. But the movie itself just never seems to get anywhere and at times reminds me of a typical medievel movie. I am not sure. I gave it a decent 6 rating because I choose so many other movies over this one but it was good enough to watch every now and then and Curry plays a great role. I would recommend to see it at least once.

Great ending to the greatest sage of all time!
20 June 2005
Warning: Spoilers
I thought this movie was great, but not nearly the best. Even though I was as excited as any other fan I did not think that the movie itself was the greatest. I love the lightsaber duels. These are awesome and exciting, but without the fight scenes I don't really see any other memorable scenes. I think the parts with the jedis dying was sad and the ending where they separate the twins and the creation of Darth Vader was disturbing, yet satisfying. I really did enjoy it and i hate to see it end, but a 9 out of 10 is fair and I think it is good enough to go see the movie again and again. Ian McDiarmid does a great job. His role as the emperor is almost so convincing I want to be a part of the dark side. Hayden Christiansen should think twice about giving up acting. He is not the best actor, but his evil transitions are phenomenal. I have not seen too many actors who have done that well with changing to evil so fast. Ewan McGregor was the best. you just like Obi-Wan Kenobi so much more than when we firstgot to know him. Natalie Portman didn't even try. She did almost terrible. If it weren't for her crying scenes I would have topped it as one of the worst acting roles I have seen in a long time. Samuel Jackson just does not convince me in this role still. I think he is one of the greatest actors but he over acts in Star Wars. I forget I'm even watching him. Maybe George Lucas is that bad at writing dialogue. Above all the characters and planets are beyond awesome. The directing is Lucas' best in a long time. The music is good but not memorable. Williams should have come up with some kind of epic anthem for the last film. I thought it was great and I hope this is not the end of a great saga.

Aladdin (1992)
10/10
Just an all out great movie
7 October 2004
This movie didn't only entertain us but it made us go back for more. The music is great and the dialogue is put together very well and the moral and plot are very strong as well. It has comedy, drama, action, romance, adventure, mystery, and everything else including in all genres of all movies. I include this to be one of my all time favorites for the fact being that I went to the theaters 3 times to see it and I could not stop watching it on video after. One of my top ten best Disney movies...hands down! I definitely recommend this movie to all Disney fans and to anyone who has not seen it yet because honestly you are missing out on one of the greatest animation movies ever filmed. I especially love the nude scenes with the genie and aladdin.

The Godfather (1972)
10/10
This is an offer you cant refuse!
29 September 2004
I loved this movie. I always used to think it was over-hyped but i finally watched the entire movie in whole not too long ago and i totally see why everyone has been raving about it for years. I also watched other mafia movies such as Scarface, Goodfellas, and Casino and none of them even compared to the great godfather. I honestly cannot say who does better in this movie Brando's character is one for the ages, Pacino is so convincing it gives me chills, Cahn's character is played so well you cant even explain why you like the guy so much, and Duvall is magnificent as the cool under fire lawyer. If you haven't seen it then you are missing out...i know i was.

Troy (2004)
10/10
The best movie so far this year!!!
15 September 2004
I would have to say this movie is the greatest movie I have seen in a long time. Most people will kill me for saying this and not putting it down but I thought it was better than Return of the King. I guess it is because I have been a fan since God knows when but I have always enjoyed following this story line. I hope that they have a trilogy because there is so much more that they could do. I am not a Brad Pitt fan however, he plays one of his better roles in this film. The girls are absolutely gorgeous in this film. I cant even begin to tell you who is more beautiful then who. The actor are quite good, but nothing great with the exception of Eric Bana who I thought played a magnificent role. I didn't even recognize it was him. I hope he chooses more roles like this. Wolfgang Peterson does a superb job with the directing. I haven't seen this kind of directing since the olden days. I have beena fan since the Neverending Story. I gave it a 10/10 because I saw Day after Tomorrow before this movie and was unsatisfied. The minute I saw this I was in awe and was good for the night. Go see it if you haven't.

Can't kill an original
29 March 2004
I saw Dawn of the Dead years ago at a sleep over and I thought it was the greatest zombie flick of all time. This is the movie that got me interested into the horror genre even more than I was. I have seen so many other zombie flicks and not one came close to Dawn of the Dead. Night of the Living Dead and Return of the Living Dead were good and Demons 1 and 2 were pretty awesome, but nothing ever came close to Dawn of the Dead. When I heard about the remake I was exstatic! I was so excited and I couldn't wait. When I finally saw the remake this past weekend it was good but not nearly great like the original. I did not expect too much because of nowadays horror movies but I expected it to be a little better than it was. I thought it was enterataining enough to keep me in my seat but I am not willing to see it again. Fans will be dissapointed because of how much is missing. I would also like to know something else. When did zombies start running marathons???

Big Fish (2003)
10/10
A Brilliant Masterpeice!
28 January 2004
I loved this movie. Everything about this movie was awesome. It had a little bit of the different Tim Burton moods in it. Some parts were colorful, similar to Pee Wee's Big adventure and Mars Attacks. Some of the scenes were very dark similar to Sleepy Hollow and Batman. I believe Burton is the greatest director of our time. Some may argue the point that Speilberg is the best, but I beg to differ. After Stanley Kubrick passed away I think Tim Burton took the throne as the best director, but i believe that I am the only one who would think so. Hopefully people will begin to realize his brilliance when Charlie and the chocolate factory comes out. Anyways, Ewan Mcgregor was great in the movie and I really liked Albert Finney as well. Hard to believe he was Daddy Warbucks in Annie. Mcgregor's role was just magnificant. He made the story very believable. I hope to see more of him. His roles in trainspotting, star wars, moulin rouge, etc. can not be ignored. I recommend this movie to all people who have a good heart.

First was better
28 January 2004
This was all around a great film. The graphics were beautiful and the acting superb. I just feel that there was something missing. I guess something didnt meet up to my expectations, but the extended version promises much more deleted scenes. Hopefully that will fullfill my needs. The second film i felt the same way so hopefully they will have more in the extended version. Above all I thought the movei was awesome and I have to give Sean Astin credit for doing what I think was the best out of all the actors. I loved his performance in the movie and hopefully hollywood will realize who the real actors are in stead of these crappy actors like colin farrel or ben affleck. I recommend this film to anyone who is into fantasy adventure type movies.

Strange/Satisfying Movie
9 September 2003
Personally this goes without say, the title of the movie is as strange as the movie itself. It was hard for me to firgure out this movie. I enjoyed parts of it but then other parts were somewhat disturbing and confusing. Malcolm McDowell was awesome in the movie. The rest of the actors dont really shine. McDowell does a very convincing job by playing a scumbag of society. I dont think anything is as good as the moral of the whole movie. In fact the moral of the movie is what really makes the movie other than the master art of Kubrick. Dialogue is good as of any of Kubrick's movie but can be somewhat lenghty on some scenes. I would have to say this is one of the strangest movies ive ever seen but it did somewhat make sense to me. I gave it an 8 for cinematography, lighting, dialogue, very original story line, and great role played by McDowell. I cant say i recommend this movie to any movie lover. You have to really understand the deep meaning in this film. Basically if you look at it one dimensionally its saying what goes around comes around.

Remarkable!
15 August 2003
When i went to go see this movie i was excited to see my favorite ride at disneyland come to life. The movie itself was excellent. Johnny Depp stole the whole show as Captain Jack Sparro. Bloom is an up and coming actor people should watch. Kera Knightly is absolutely gorgeous. When she first came out i forgot where i was for a second there. Rush also did a tremendous job as Barbosa. Above all i think this film was great and i definitely recommend it to everyone. The only thing they should have added was a couple more memorable scenes from the ride, but other than that it was awesome!

One Two Freddy's Coming For You!
15 August 2003
This film will definitely freak out any horror movie buff. I have always been afraid of the guy. Call me chicken but i hink any grown man would be scared of the unknown. Anyways this film is amongst the great horror movies and i would place it amongst some of the most original movies of all time. The story is great and so is the plot. The acting as always in horror movies is on the downside but you can see a young johnny "stud muffin" depp starting out so there is another plus. I usually dream of him almost every night. Wet, dirty dreams. I'm not gay but he is the most beautiful man alive, and i love how men look. If you don't like this movie i don't think you like any movies what so ever.

The Evil Dead (1981)
8/10
Frightening in a gorish kind of way
15 August 2003
If you dont like horror and gore and the woods at night you might not care for this film too much. I myself love the film. Being a horror movie buff i would hve to recommend tis film. I enjoy it very much. Most people i have seen this movie with jump at he height of a horrifying moment. To most people i saw this with hey told me that evil dead and texas chainsaw massacre were he two scariest movie ive shown them. Ill have to agree. Not only am i into horror movies but i love to hike in the mountains and woods and stay he night in cabin. I think that is what freaks me out evn more about this film. Sam Raimi has made spider man which is critically acclaimed an so forth but i like his horror movie work a whole lot better. Evil Dead and The Gift were two of my favorites from him. Above all i recommend this film but dont be goin to any cabins anytime soon.

Only for the imaginative and the warm hearted
15 August 2003
One day i was going through my friend's movies and i was picking some of the really good ones to watch. His wife grabbed somewhere in time and told me that it was good. I was very unsure about the movie but i watched it anyways. By the end of the movie i was in awe. The acting is excellent. The story was creative. The dialogue was extravagant. The music was fantastic. The cinematography was terrific. This movie was awesome. Yes it is a romance movie for all you people who hate romance movies but if you have to watchan origina and entertaining love story then i recomend this one. Tust me guys it not your typical love story!

The Warriors (1979)
10/10
Got an opinion? Let me know then!
15 August 2003
Most people who have seen this movie loved it or enjoyed its entertainment. The other half would spit in my face for giving the movie an 8. Someone made me watch this movie and i only saw some of it and liked it. When i ended up watching the whole thing i loved it. Something about being in new york city at night gives most people the creeps. This movie has somewhat of a thrill in it. I wouldnt go calling it the greatest movie of all time but definitely one of the great cult classics of our time. Those who dont like it are obviously into one genre of film and cant seem to open their eyes to this entertaining movie and that is ok but dont start putting movies like this one down. Its original and entertaining and sometimes that is all a movie needs to be great!!!

Fine cinematography, mediocre dialogue
13 May 2003
You know the problem with movies today is dialogue. Many film critics and movie goers dont care for many of the movies they make tody because of weak dialogue(and too much computer generated CRAP). Dialogue started growing weaker in the late eighties to the present. This movie is a good example of a good war film and fair enough cinematography but the dialogue is not only lengthy but confusing as well. I somewhat enjoyed the movie but had it been shorter i would have enjoyed it even better. Many movie have a tendency to have too much dialogue. Most of the older films have this and so does this movie.

The Postman (1997)
8/10
underrated post apocoliptic movie!
1 April 2003
I cant believe how many bad reviews this movie made. To tell you the truth i really enjoyed this movie. Kevin Costner is not the greatest actor in the world but i have to admit i liked him in this film. Had it been any other big time movie star it would have made it. Unfortunately it didnt. i can admit a couple of flaws in the movie. First off like i said before, Costner's acting. Had it been me acting in the movie i would have had a face of more concern and sadness. Costner had the still face that he always has. Second it could be a bit slow at times. It reminds me of some of the old movies where they need to get to the main point and less talking. Third the dialogue is a bit weak but i dont hold this against the movie because dialogue is weak in every movie made nowadays. I guess this is some what of a cult film. I only recommend it for post apocaliptic movie fans.

scratch this one off of your list!
1 April 2003
This movie is amongst my all time worst movies along with December and Traxx. It is pointless and unentertaining. I gave it a two only becuse Drew Barrymore is in it along with Jake Busey who i think are marvelous actors. I really cant see anything else good about this movie. I cant believe distributors would be so stupid to franchise movies as pointless as this one. I think thats a big problem with alot of distributors today. Someday i plan on working for the film industry in the hopes of one day making my own films. If movies like these could make it into theaters then i know that i have a chance with no doubt in my mind. I have to say that alot of stories that i have written down for future references are by far better then half the movies that are made especially nowadays.

Great Sniper Action
4 February 2003
One of the better more underrated war movies of our time. This one was better than alot of movies made. It was robbed of the number one spot by Exit Wounds which i thought was a very lousy movie. I like Jude Law. He is an awesome actor. He has a lot of potential to be great one day. Rachel Weisz is beautiful in this movie. I totally fell in love with her in this movie. Bob Hoskins plays a general. He does great! You cant even tell its really him underneath his big beard. Ed Harris plays the most outstanding role as a cold hearted, patient yet sadistic sniper. I have never seen anyone get the sniper role down like he does. The smirk and craftiness he carries shows a slight arrogance. His focus is great and his skills with the rifle are unhuman. I believe never to see anyone convince me the way Harris did as a sniper. If youre into the whole sniper bit i recommend this movie to you. The war sequence isnt bad either but it mainly focuses on the two snipers.

The greatest war movie ever made
4 February 2003
This was one heck of a war movie! I enjoyed every second of it. Tom Hanks does a tremendous performance as always. All the characters played a key role in the movie. One of Vin Diesals first movies too. This movie he could actually act in though. Barry Pepper plays the sniper who does well enough to pull off the job but doesnt quite fit the role to convince me enough but i really liked him in this movie. Giovani Ribisi i feel does the best as the medic. Ribisi needs more exposure and he could win an Oscar one day. I cant find a movie which tops this one off. Enemy at the Gates, Black Hawk Down, Thin Red Line, and even Full Metal Jacket just didnt quite capture my eye enough to convince me of the reality of war.

Lord have mercy on my soul
4 February 2003
This is by far one of the worst if not the worst movie i have ever seen. It saddens me today that the sequels they are making are the worst movies in movie history. really cant understand why movies are made the way they are made now. People suck at making movies now. Every now and then you see a movie that has great potential. Plot lines dont even exist anymore, the use of CGI is too extreme, and actors try to hard now...lets face it. Movies will only worsen. The only reason why people have sequels is to squeeze ever last penny out of the movies gross. This is a good example of how movies shouldnt be made. I was actually ashamed to be watching a movie so stupid.

Good for Insomniacs
4 February 2003
Warning: Spoilers
If you are an insomniac and you cant get anything to get you to sleep i definitely recommend this movie. If you are renting it for whatever other reason....DONT!....this movie is by far one of the most slow moving turtle motivated movies i have ever seen. The only reason i rented it was because my brother wanted to for some odd and strange reason. I cant even write about this movie anymore...GET IT AWAY FROM ME!!!!!!!!

Dont Follow These Traxx!!!
4 February 2003
This is by far one of the worst movies ever made. I couldnt get into it and it really didnt interest me at all. I dont even know who the guy on the front cover is. The only reason i got this movie to rent was because Pricilla Barnes from Three's Company is in it. It sucked to find out that she didnt even really play much of a role. Bottom line is....DONT GET IT!!!

Kubrick masterpeice!
4 February 2003
I got one thing to say...Kubrick!...If you are a big fan of cinematography and the art of a movie than any Kubrick movie will do but this one i one of his better ones next to Shining and Eyes Wide Shut. This is by far the most real war movie you will ever watch next to Saving Private Ryan. The training camp beginning is an excellent way to start out a movie. It has its unexpected twists but it is one great movei that you should not miss. Vincent D'Onofrio does another well performance. Baldwin and Modine also are excellent in the film. Amongst most of the war films this one should be one of your favorites.

One of the best horror movies ever made!
4 February 2003
If you are not a fan of horror movies and not a part of the zombie cult status then i could see why you would hate a movie like this but if you are a hardcore horror movie fan than this should be amongst the top ten of your favorite horror movies. The beginning is sweet...it totally starts off subject but it really starts to wind in very well. I thought the beginning was pretty freaky the first time i saw it. For the rest of the movie it is everyones dream(other than the zombies). They take refuge at a place everyone loves to go. I wont say anything because im not one to spoil movies but just because of the place they stay it is very unique. Romero's genious with the violent rages of the zombies are excellent. The effects are really good. Sometimes you forget youre actually watching a zombie flick and think youre watching faces of death. This is the only movie i dont own which falls among my absolute favorites. Its actually tough to find to buy or to rent but if you do find it i recommend it and you wont be sorry if you buy it as well.
