Bryan Singer's X-Men spawned quite a few sequels. Compared to all of these sequels this 1st X-men film had to operate on a much smaller budget. despite this director Bryan Singer still managed to pull off quite an impressive film. The best character by far for me is the sexy Mystique played by the super sexy Rebecca Romijn-Stamos. The story is okay and the film works well due to a nice balance between action and humour. Bryan Singer's sequel to X-Men, X2, is still considered the best of all the X-Men films so far by its fans which I fully agree with.
What a fantastic collaboration between James Cameron for writing this impressive 90's futuristic story and the screenplay and Kathryn Bigelow for directing this fantastic thrill ride! The film's got great leading performances from Ralph Fiennes as Lenny Nero, Juliette Lewis and Angela Bassett. The supporting cast is impressive too with solid performances across the board. The action sequences are simply fantastic, Kathryn Bigelow really shines in that department. This was my 1st viewing of Strange Days and expect to revisit this great film once either the US or UK blu-ray is released. Highly recommended!
One of Mr. Scorsese's finest films, The Wolf of Wall Street is a 3 hour tour de force brimmed with energy and fantastic acting.
Like so many other reviewers have already stated before me, it is a feat and an acknowledgement for a 3 hour film to only feel not even half as long, it is that good.
I don't think it is worth a 5 star rating but I did thoroughly enjoy the hell out of it and will definitely add this to my Blu-ray collection.
