  • Predator 1987

    ★★★★★ Cogerson Rewatched by Cogerson 17 Apr, 2014 10

    I have watched Predator many many times. I have seen it in theaters. I have seen it on VHS. I have seen it on laserdisc. I have seen it on DVD. I have seen it on Blu-Ray. I now have seen it in 3D...damn I sound like Dr. Seuss.

    As for the movie....this is one of the greatest action movies ever...right there with the original Die Hard movie! Arnold Schwarzenegger and his buddies go into the jungle for a rescue…

  • Jurassic Park 1993

    ★★★★★ Naughty Watched by Naughty 17 Apr, 2014 8

    Raise your hand if you would visit a Jurassic Park in the future!

    ----> Naughty Raises Her Hand

    It's all fun and games until someone pokes an eye out... or in this case gets turned into a big pile of dinosaur dooty!

    Relentless chills and thrills and wicked good fun! The Special Effects team from George Lucas's Industrial Light and Magic is responsible for the Non stop WOWsssss, Ohhhhhs and Ahhhhhhs!

    Great performances by Sam Neill, Laura Dern and Jeff Goldblum! The child actors Ariana Richards and Joseph Mazzello were beyond fabulous!

    It's a dream come true only with big gnarly teeth!

  • Holy Motors 2012

    ★★★★ Edgar Cochran Watched by Edgar Cochran 12 Apr, 2014 16

    A film that, needless to say, has a number of correct subjective interpretations directly proportional to the amount of viewers that saw it with a high attention span and an open mind, in my humble opinion, can be more easily dissected if:

    I. It is seen passively.

    “I'd rather people feel a film before understanding it."
    - Robert Bresson

    “We think too much and feel too little."
    - Charles Chaplin.

    Some things do not have to make sense. The mind…

  • One False Move 1992

    ★★★★ Todd Gaines Rewatched by Todd Gaines 17 Apr, 2014 5

    Pvt. Hudson as a small town police chief caught in the middle of a complicated big city crime spree. A House Party without Kid 'n Play. High-tech video equipment. The girl with the stripper name. Bitch-slap. Hidden treasure. Pillow cases. Plastic baggies. Nightmares. Cool, calm, and collective Dud and John. Star City. Pluto the smart-as-fuck-diabolical-genius not the dwarf planet. The Ultimate Warrior of character actors John fuckin' Mahon. Fuckin' blow. Police escort. Damn Yankee Charlie. The Hurricane. Domestic disturbance. War…

    DirkH Watched by DirkH 16 Apr, 2014 6

    Sincere and extremely realistic drama of what it's like to live with a pregnant woman.

  • Gomorrah 2008

    ★★★★★ Gustav Watched by Gustav 13 Apr, 2014 13

    Gomorrah is ceaselessly and nervously ticking with authenticity. It's a film on originated crime that isn't afraid of getting into the deepest, darkest, most ironically enough unorganized, and sudden places, much the antithesis to films like The Godfather. It conforms to no clichés, has no heroes, keeps no character alive or around in the decay long enough to find resonance in, and yet it's stunningly pictured and genuinely honest.

    The various stories in the dense narrative are never driven by…

  • 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…

  • Speed 1994

    ★★★★½ Cinemonster Added by Cinemonster 19

    In what is essentially three action films tied together by the same protagonist and loon, Speed marks the debut of acclaimed cinematographer Jan de Bont. Keanu Reeves is said protagonist, and Dennis Hopper said loon.

    Speed occupies a place in a very small family of films, that includes Aliens & Shoot em Up among others, that almost immediately drives the gas peddle to and through the floor. They are films, like the bus in this film, whose inertia can't seem to…

  • The Grand Budapest Hotel 2014

    ★★★★★ Caty Alexandre Watched by Caty Alexandre 13 Apr, 2014 9

    Well, I do not even know where to start! The Grand Budapest Hotel was one of my most anticipated films this year. My expectations were very high and I can say it exceeded everything I was expecting.

    Wes Anderson is a very peculiar and original director, there is no one like him and his style is unmistakable. With an interesting filmography is great to see his improvement over the years. This film is a good example of that. All his…

  • This Is Martin Bonner 2013

    ★★★★ DirkH Watched by DirkH 16 Apr, 2014 6

    Film #143 of Make me watch your favourite.
    Recommended by Luke Palmer.

    What an absolutely wonderful way to spend some time.

    As far as slice of life films go, they don't get much more sincere and austere than This is Martin Bonner. We enter the lives of two men who are at similar stages in their lives for completely different reasons. For a short while we see the beginnings of a friendship between two guys who only share a common…

  • Barton Fink 1991

    ★★★★ Andy Summers Watched by Andy Summers 17 Apr, 2014

    It has been almost twenty years since I saw Barton Fink. Back then in my early twenties I obviously missed something. I seem to remember it leaving me a little muddled and confused, and with this film coming fairly soon after my favorite Coen's film, Miller's Crossing, I was a little underwhelmed. I'd like to think my tastes have matured a bit since then and as I listed my Coen Brothers ranking last night, I was surprised at the reaction…

  • Misery 1990

    ★★★½ Dragonknight Watched by Dragonknight 17 Apr, 2014

    Film #8 of Project 90

    ”I’m your number one fan.”

    The divinely charismatic James Caan types the final words of his latest novel, lights a cigarette, drinks a cup of his sweet favorite champagne then jumps in his Mustang 65, turns on the engine and starts off a trip in a mountain road covered all in snow. Director Rob Reiner starts his film with this sequence which more than anything shows his abilities in creating an ominous and quite arresting…

  • High Tension 2003

    ★★★ CinemaClown Watched by CinemaClown 16 Apr, 2014 2

    For the majority of its runtime, High Tension really manages to live up to its name & is widely considered by many as one of the most notable examples of the New French Extremity Movement. And in my opinion, it would've gone on to accomplish much more if only the ending wasn't such a big letdown which is really disappointing because the film worked so well with its cleverly executed plot only to throw it all away in the final 10-15…

  • The Happening 2008

    Harry Watched by Harry 14 Apr, 2014 6

    There is something awfully abnormal about M. Night Shyamalan's The Happening. Off kilter and slight, the film appears as if cut out of cardboard and assembled in the crude form of Mark Wahlberg and the perplexed ambience encompassing him. This is the biggest blunder of The Happening; its artificial aesthetic and superficiality that reverberates a hollow thud if smacked. Too many comical missteps and impracticalities hinder any believability in the picture. It's unfocused, misguided, unintentionally amusing and another taint in…

  • Fargo 1996

    ★★★★★ shanderson88 Watched by shanderson88 15 Apr, 2014 11

    I'm so god damn sick of winter.

    I'm a man who hates extremes. I hate it when it is too friggin cold outside and we have to close up the stuffy house and run the heat all day. I hate it when it is too friggin hot and everything is sticky and weird and we have to close up the stuffy house and run the air conditioning all day. Give me 55 degrees all the time, the perfect weather to…

  • North by Northwest 1959

    ★★★★½ Evan Watched by Evan 17 Apr, 2014 1

    An extremely well crafted exciting adventure thriller full of suspense. Cary Grant gives an amazing performance. A must see by anyone who is a fan of film.

  • Vertigo 1958

    ★★★★ Evan Watched by Evan 16 Apr, 2014 13

    While I found this movie to be very good, I didn't quite see it as one of the best movies ever.
