    Still my favorite Kubrick movie and one of my favorite war films of all time. I love the way Kubrick portrays the entire spectrum of humanity and the dual natures that people have. It is impressive that at a time of ignorance about PTSD and what war does to a man, that Kubrick swoops in and makes a damning movie about toxic masculinity and the corruption of military and government.

    This has one of the greatest final sequences in cinema history and is one of the best sci-fi films I have seen along with having outstanding visuals with very complex themes that were not talked about in the 1960s especially in sci-fi. What would you do if you were no one? How many masks do we as people actually wear in life? And many other themes that are just as good as those two. I 1000% recommend this film for anyone who likes good movies.

    Is this the only good movie Michael Bay has directed? A movie directed by Michael Bay that has enjoyable characters and the humor isn't awful? What a world we live in.

    Holy. Fucking. Shit. This movie was so freaking creepy! The atmosphere that Kiyoshi Kurosawa creates in this was great for this sort of horror movie. That paired with some fantastic and scary visuals makes one of the scariest movies that I have seen in a while.

    A lot more problematic than John Hughes' other classics and also just not as good. The dialogue and story in his future movies are much better than this one and the characters in general are more likable as well. This movie is not bad, but just your average teen rom-com (granted this did kind of kickstart that genre).
