    Pulp Fiction 1994

    ★★★★★ Added 1

    This masterpiece was a game-changing pioneer of non linear storytelling. With outstanding performances by a myriad of great actors and a conversational dialogue that found its way into our collective vernacular, this epic classic is Tarrantino's most important cultural contribution if not undeniably his best film.

  • Requiem for a Dream

    Requiem for a Dream 2000

    ★★★ Added

    Overrated. Yes I said it.

    Nonetheless this is arguably a must-see for the sake of creative cinematography and a gritty, harrowing experience you won't soon forget.

    Aronofsky is a talented filmmaker but unlike his other (brilliant) films, this one provided no new insights and is not deserving of its spot on every hipster's top 10 list.

    Ellen Burnstyn, however, absolutely deserved the oscar.

  • Moon

    Moon 2009

    ★★★★★ Added 1

    This sci fi masterpiece is an unsung classic, compelling and truly original. Single-handedly carried by Sam Rockwell, one of the great actors of our time, whether anyone realizes this or not.

  • Trainspotting

    Trainspotting 1996

    ★★★★★ Added

    A gritty rock-bottom drug addict movie that manages to be wildly funny. Full of cringe-worthy scenes, insane characters, amazing muisic and thick scottish accents spitting highly quotable dialogue; this flick is a classic.

  • Twelve Monkeys

    Twelve Monkeys 1995

    ★★★★½ Added

    A well-crafted homage to photo-stills experiment La Jette, this classic should please casual viewers and sci-fi purists alike. Contains memorable performances by confused protaganist Bruce Willis as well as Brad Pitt at his most batshit-insane. If you like time travel this is a must-see.

  • Minority Report

    Minority Report 2002

    ★★★★ Added

    Despite Tom Cruise, some overzealous eye candy, action thrills and a bit of unnecessary Spielberg filler, this is an excellent story. Beneath it all, Philip K. Dick's voice shines through in another compelling sci-fi exploration of human ethics in a possible future.

  • A.I. Artificial Intelligence

    A.I. Artificial Intelligence 2001

    ★★ Added

    A travesty.

    I gave 2 stars instead of zero in consideration of the first 30 minutes or so - the basis for a potentially amazing, dark and insightful story.

    Up until I suddenly felt Kubrick turn over in his grave, and I proceeded to endure what felt like hours of disappointment after which I (and others) sullenly and angrily shuffled out of the theater.

  • Total Recall

    Total Recall 1990

    ★★★★½ Added

    This 90s sci fi classic is a fun romp - and yet a surprisingly well done telling of a classic Philip K. Dick story. While appropriately dated, it still holds up as an excellent must-see. Get your ass to mars.

  • M

    M 1931

    ★★★★★ Added

    A masterpiece of cinematography in which every frame is so beautifully composed it could evoke tears. But what truly impresses about this film is that it was made in 1931 and is no less powerful or relevant today. That makes it an impeccable remark on human nature - and i'm a sucker for that.

  • I Am Legend

    I Am Legend 2007

    ★★★½ Added

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Not a bad post-apocalyptic fast-moving zombie flick, especially since I happen to not hate Will Smith.

    As a dog lover and total sap, I cried my mother effin eyes out.
