  • Prometheus 2012

    ★★★½ Watched 14 Jun, 2012 1

    With much anticipation in the theater, I already found myself asking some questions after the opening scene. Keep in mind, this movie really needs you to focus on it or you will miss something that seems not as important but really might be. With that said, I enjoyed the movie. It definitely is mysterious. The characters of Noomi Rapace and Logan Marshall-Green are there to find answers to their "questions." Will our questions be the same as theirs? For some,…

  • The Avengers 2012

    ★★★★ Added 2

    When I was younger, I always enjoyed comic books and one of my favorites was the "Marvel Super Heroes Secret Wars" back in 1984-85. After reading the whole story, I always thought, they should make a movie where all the super heroes are in it. About 28 years later, my dream of this happening comes closer as "The Avengers" gets released in the theaters. From the opening scene, I already felt being pulled in. Tom Hiddleston as Loki was freaking…

  • Murderers' Row 1966

    ★★★ Added 2

    This is probably the most fun I had watching in a long time. Being a fan of James Bond, it is a treat to watch films that pay homage to them, but only if they are done right. Some have even tried after this movie, but turned out as flops, at least for me. Dean Martin shows that he had what it took to be suave, smooth, true to the spy type, but at the same time he made it…

  • Beauty and the Beast 1991

    ★★★★ Added

    The first time I heard of Disney's Beauty and the Beast, I was fortunate enough to see a preview of the scene where Belle is first introduced. The song was pleasing to my ears and the animation caught my eye, that I wanted to see more when it was released. Fast forward to today, 21 years later...this movie still brings joy to me everytime I see it. I'm lucky to have experienced the hand drawn animation while it was at…

  • Mortal Kombat 1995

    ★★★ Added

    I remember the hype while going to watch MK when it first was released during its midnight showing. It was nuts! Perhaps the video game being at its all time peak had something to do with it. There were people of all ages...men and women...gamers and non gamers alike. They were all caught up in the excitement.

    With everything all said and done, I thought it was a very good all around movie. The cast was better than average with…

  • Top Gun 1986

    ★★★★ Added 2

    The first time I saw this film, it was right before I graduated junior high going into highschool. This film actually made me decide to try for a career in Naval aviation as I joined ROTC (Reserve Officers Training Corp) and studied Naval Science. This movie had the adventure, the jets, dogfights and drama. Did I mention the soundtrack, which is popular in many ways? It included Kenny Loggin's "Danger Zone", Berlin's "Take My Breath Away", The Righteous Brothers' "You've…
