  • Pacific Rim 2013

    ★★★★★ Gustav Watched by Gustav 12 Apr, 2014 56

    There comes a time after forty minutes of repeated "that shot is awesome... that scene is awesome... that character is awesome.. that sequence was awesome... that monster looks awesome, that robot.....HOLY SHITSHITSHIT PRSHHHHHHHH CRASSHHHHH IS AWESOME!!!" where all that can be said is "this is awesome!!" for the next hour and twenty minutes. This is the case exactly with Pacific Rim, a film where the awesomeness is enough to cause tears of joy.

    The creatures are stunning, the robots are…

  • The Raid 2 2014

    ★★★★★ Evan Watched by Evan 11 Apr, 2014 28

    IN-FUCKING-CREDIBLE!!!

    The Raid 2 is single handedly the best action movie I ever seen! The action choreography was absolutely mind blowing. The Raid 2 is a mixture of Die Hard and Kill Bill on steroids. I'm sorry young Bruce Willis, Iko Uwais has taken your place as my favorite action star of all time. The hand to hand combat is insane. I witnessed the great car chase sequence of my life. If you ever see a chick wielding hammers, RUN!…

  • Beauty and the Beast 1991

    ★★★★★ Adam Cook Rewatched by Adam Cook 14 Apr, 2014 20

    The Little Mermaid may have kickstarted Disney’s resurgence but it was the enchanting Beauty and the Beast that cemented their renaissance in the 1990s. Gary Trousdale and Kirk Wise’s film perfectly captures the magic and romance of the studio’s classics whilst bringing it up to date for a modern audience.

    Belle, a provincial girl wanting more from life, finds herself trapped, first by the unwanted attention of the egotistical Gaston, and then by a beast in an enchanted castle. It’s…

  • The Prestige 2006

    ★★★★★ Florin Stan Rewatched by Florin Stan 11 Apr, 2014 27

    Human nature is as destructive as it is constructive. We have the power and knowledge to build impressive constructions, invent machinery and technology that greatly alleviate our lives and can prove extremely beneficent for future generations. We are capable of love, we form families, have children. Everything is at our disposal, thanks to our ingenuity and love we have the opportunity to live in harmony. Yet we crave for more. We feel misunderstood, betrayed, we become cocky, blinded by desire…

  • We Need to Talk About Kevin 2011

    ★★★★ Bruno Youn Watched by Bruno Youn 16 Apr, 2014 14

    Lynne Ramsay's We Need to Talk About Kevin is a compelling drama, being also a very unsettling experience throughout its whole running time. The story unfolds in flashbacks and you simultaneously see how the past events affect the life of Eva in the present day. I liked how the director goes back and forth in time as I find it a very effective way of making the viewer constantly intrigued and filled with suspense. Tilda Swinton gives a powerful performance,…

  • Beetlejuice 1988

    ★★★★ DirkH Watched by DirkH 12 Apr, 2014 11

    The energy level in this brilliant, anarchic horror comedy only emphasises what a tired senior citizen Burton has become.

    In the ol' Guy Fawkesean mantra of cinema; pacing, creativity, plot the latter often gets forgotten in films that need it most, comedies.

    Perhaps not a straightforward comedy, Beetlejuice most definitely is one. One that manages to be so much more than a collection of jokes.

    Its humour is firmly embedded within its premise, meaning it can get away with a…

  • Foodfight! 2012

    ½ Adam Cook Watched by Adam Cook 11 Apr, 2014 34

    Well this is sure to give you nightmares.

    Curiosity got the better of me and I just had to check out a film some were claiming the worst animated film of all time. To be honest I didn’t really believe the hype, after all it could hardly top the offensively awful Titanic: the Animated Movie could it? Yes, yes it could.

    Foodfight! initially appears quite impressive if an eight-year old with a Playstation 2 made it. Unfortunately, $65m was spent…

  • Captain America: The Winter Soldier 2014

    ★★★★½ Bruno Youn Watched by Bruno Youn 10 Apr, 2014 12

    Wow, this was truly incredible! First of all, I must say that Captain America: The First Avenger didn't impress me and I actually considered it a pretty mediocre film. While I didn't think the film was bad by any means, there were a couple of silly moments and the overall experience was just forgettable for me. Now Captain America: The Winter Soldier was a huge improvement over the first one and it's easily my favorite Marvel film so far. Not…

  • O Brother, Where Art Thou? 2000

    ★★★★ Andy Summers Watched by Andy Summers 15 Apr, 2014 3

    With the exception of Inside Llewyn Davis, this was the only Coen Brothers film I'd never seen. Obviously over the years I've caught bits and pieces on tv and of course that soundtrack has had a fair amount of play on my I-pod, but this was the first time I'd sat down to watch the entire thing. I've enjoyed everything the Coen's have done apart from Blood Simple for some reason (don't ask why, I can't really explain it) so…

  • Goodfellas 1990

    ★★★★½ Dragonknight Watched by Dragonknight 15 Apr, 2014 6

    Film #6 of Project 90

    ”For as long as I can remember I always wanted to be a gangster.”

    Epic, glorious, masterful and majestic, Goodfellas is the jewel in the crown of gangster movies, almost every single moment, every single line and every single character of this tour de force is iconic. Martin Scorsese’s passion works like a miracle and turns this story of greed, betrayal and ambition into an extremely dramatic and tremendously thrilling roller-coaster which not even for…

  • Looper 2012

    ★★★★ CinemaClown Watched by CinemaClown 13 Apr, 2014 2

    Taking the tried & tested formula of time-traveling in sci-fi films, Looper creates an original beauty of a film that is as satisfying as its smart plot. It's not so complex that you're gonna have a hard time figuring it out nor is it too simple that you can spare your attention away from it for a while. The balance this movie has between its sci-fi elements & action-drama is its real strength, making Looper one of the best films of its…

  • The Last Samurai 2003

    ★★★½ CinemaClown Watched by CinemaClown 15 Apr, 2014 14

    Quite sound in its portrayal of old Japanese customs, traditions & way of life, nicely written by Zwick, convincingly performed by the cast, impressive work by the crew & featuring stunning music by Hans Zimmer, The Last Samurai is a tale of romanticism vs modernism, purity vs corruption & a conflict of two different cultures.

    Although director Edward Zwick's research of Japanese history, culture, customs, traditions & accent is impressive, the plot could've made a greater impact than it did for the movie wasn't…

  • Edward Scissorhands 1990

    ★★★★ Dragonknight Watched by Dragonknight 14 Apr, 2014 10

    Film #5 of Project 90

    ”Before he came down here, it never snowed. And afterwards, it did.”

    Tim Burton is at his most creative and his fantasy is at its most pleasant here, a nice and poetically glorious film with an innocent character whose only wish in life is to be loved and accepted as a member of the society. A smart and quite precise observation of how people deal with individuals who are special in one way or another…

    Now I know where Disturbia got it's entire plot from.

  • The Hunt 2012

    ★★★★ Edgar Cochran Watched by Edgar Cochran 16 Apr, 2014 10

    - Lucas is an idealized personification of the dignity of the human spirit. His role is to represent the burden of an innocent soul, that is perfectly capable of making human mistakes. He reminds us of the weight that the perception of society towards our image and reputation can have in our condition of social beings.
    - Klara represents the only source of purity in the film. She is a little spark; the rest of the people are dynamite cartridges.…
