Every film that has ever been nominated for an Academy Award in any category. Enjoy!
When he said I do, he never said what he did.

"DA BRIDGE IS AAUUUT!"
the best (and the most) American action film of the last 20 or so years.
mushroom cloud kiss is *the* image of Cameron's career.
I've seen this at least five or six times and I fall in love with Jamie Lee Curtis all over again every time. The way she wets her hair with the water from the flowers. The way she strips for Arnold while he sits in the dark. Oh yeah, the rest of the film is pretty good, too, but it's that damn hotel room scene .... whew!
In fact, I was in Taipei several years ago and met a certain lady who came back to my own hotel room. The movie happened to be on the pay-per-view channel and after we watched it, I asked her if she was up for a little role play. The way she reenacted that scene ... whoa! Unforgettable.
Okay, so now everyone in the world knows why I rate this movie so highly. So sue me. But really ... it's a great film!!!
Loads of fun! Tom Arnold was absolutely perfect. Bill Paxton was awesome. Looking for the perfect popcorn afternoon flick? Look no further. Did I say it was loads of fun? Enjoy! Highly recommended!
Anyone with any desire to make an action film should be made to watch this first.
This is proof that sometimes, throwing everything at the camera can create a visual extravaganza.
True Lies is nearly 20 YEARS OLD, and the action set pieces still stand up to anything that I have seen since. Like THAT scene on the bridge. Unbelievable.
Shwarzenegger is brilliant in this. This is must be his 3RD best film.
"What kind of a sick bitch takes the Ice cube trays out of the Freezer?"
Fucking release this on Blu-Ray already!!!
True Lies has a plethora of cool ideas, and original ones as well. It also features some very awesome and memorable action sequences, a great performance from Arnie, and sometimes clever screenplay. But there are sadly some issues with the the movie to make it not so great. But trust me, I still like True Lies, in fact, it's a pretty good movie but I caught a few errors throughout.
This film has the potential of being bad, but surprisingly with the pluses I gave to the film, it doesn't wreck, it only crashes in some aspects. Like how it feels like three totally different movies, that each one of them are incredibly underdeveloped. The first act mainly focuses on…
There's no way I can possibly write an objective review of this. It's shamelessly campy and it's wonderful.
Best family rom-com ever
Pomfret Library - DVD
Huge action, silly humor, and a deft balance of each with its easy-but-not-empty story.
This film holds up surprisingly well despite its flaws. I am continually undecided if the film is misogynistic and bigoted, each viewing (probably a dozen over the years) and my opinion changes again.
Tom Arnold is delightfully funny with his never ending stream of policitcal incorrectness and Schwarznegger comes awfully close to actually acting in this film and James Cameron continually gives him terrific almost Leone like close ups.
The film seems to me as though it was an original instigator in the ludicrous action sub genre that the Fast and the Furious franchise is currently excelling at, and while it is that, for the most part, it is all incredibly well staged mayhem and a part of me wishes that Cameron would just get back to making entertaining thrill rides like this rather than ecological mumbo jumbo that is just so far away from reality that you just cannot relate to it.
I loved this movie so much. It made me very happy.
This is the best bad movie ever. Every CGI fail and cheesy line kept me hooked enough to watch the whole two and a half hours and not regret a single second of it.
It is flawed and by no means anywhere near the same level as the first two Terminator films, but James Cameron and Arnold Schwarzenegger still deliver some truly dazzling entertainment in "True Lies", a film that features colorful characters, tight action and solid comedy. Even the weakest Cameron film (Piranha II doesnt count for this guy) manages to be better than some directors' entire portfolios (suck it, Paul w.s. Anderson)!
There are some voracious film watchers on Letterboxd with diverse tastes so I thought it would be interesting to see…
I've always been interested in what other people are seeing and watching, and naturally, I love looking at Weekend Box…
