|85 T9||How to Train Your Dragon (2010) - Dec 04, 2010
"I. Loved. It. Old-fashioned, sweeping movie magic served with dashing 3D and a truly great score that would make Alan Menken proud. DreamWorks Animation's most successful flick (aside from the Shrek franchise) is also their finest to date and if I had to choose which to watch a second time, I'd pick this witty yet tender adventure ride over Toy Story 3 or Avatar any day. "Everything we know about you guys is wrong" might be a naive metaphor for our fear of strangers, but striking nonetheless."
|100 T10||Eyes Wide Shut (1999) - Dec 15, 2010
"It's probably just me, but this is - in my eyes - Kubrick's most intriguing work. Far from 'perfection', but indeed a perfect example that sometimes the flawed gems leave the most distinctive impressions in the long run. I for one keep coming back to the labyrinthine mysteries, the haunting imagery and the raw yet insightful psychological take on dark sexuality. A more than worthy swan song for one of the brightest geniuses ever to shine over the world of cinema."
|100 T10||The Tree of Life (2011) - May 22, 2011
"The story of life. Envisioned as a prayer, told through jaw-dropping poetry and imagery. Nothing like any piece of art you've ever seen - and arguably the most memorable movie of the decade."
|70 T7||Brave (2012) - Sep 01, 2012
"Liked the Obviously Lesbian Princess part better than the Grizzly Mom half which felt like a 2.0 version of 'Brother Bear'. Anyway, a decent Pixar pic is still way preferable to most animated features. "
|15 T1||Hitch (2005) - Dec 12, 2010
"What a formulaic load of crap even for Hollywood standards: The sleek love guru is of course deep down a good guy and is really just looking for true love bla bla bla. And as if that isn't enough it all ends with a big, happy dance number (!). I'd be much more interested in the alternative version featuring a brutally selfish pickup artist deliberately seducing hundreds of random women while enjoying his independence and freedom. Perhaps ending with a nice, over-the-top orgie. Just a suggestion."
|95 T10||Moulin Rouge! (2001) - Oct 04, 2008
"The movie equivalent of an orgasm; a pure and ecstatic energy outburst over way to soon. Luhrmann's over-the-top exercise in romantic escapism is nothing short of the musical spectacle of the new century."
|35 T2||A Beautiful Mind (2001) - Oct 04, 2008
"How did this EVER win the Best Picture Oscar?! I mean, come on! It was up against the spectacular Moulin Rouge, the best part of the LOTR trilogy, the unforgettable drama of In The Bedroom and yet another great Altman ensemble piece, Gosford Park. Four splendid films - two of them masterful. But no, let's award the plain, sobby biopic by the dude from Happy Days and penned by the writer of Batman & Robin. This will forever be beyond me, AMPAS. "
|100 T10||The Passion of the Christ (2004) - Apr 06, 2012
"Like or hate Gibson, but rarely has any director in history felt so passionate about his movie - and it shows. In e v e r y single frame, piece of sound and acting performance. The result? One of the most powerful and challenging moviegoing experiences I have ever encountered. I literally couldn't feel my legs when I left the cinema scarred and bruised for life. "
|75 T8||Toy Story 3 (2010) - Aug 29, 2010
"The plot formula seems a little generic the third time around, but these characters are simply impossible not to love. Charming, partly moving and a more than decent swan song for the trilogy that propelled the magic kingdom of Pixar... and hey - Totoro!"
|90 T10||Braveheart (1995) - Oct 04, 2008
"[blu-ray re-watch]: No wonder it took Gibson three months to physically recover from both starring in and directing this massive powerhouse. More than 15 years later his efforts still shines - looking better on bluray than ever. 'Braveheart' is epic, old-fashioned and first-classed craftsmanship led by the needed passion and madness of its director. It truly stands the test of time."
