|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."
|95 T10||Cesare deve morire (2012) - Dec 17, 2012
"To me both the most purely satisfying and complex movie experience of 2012 - and rarely has the 'you've never seen anything like this!'-cliche felt more fitting. Equally beautiful to watch and inspiring to experience, the Taviani brothers succeed in showcasing human beings instead of convicted demons - without sympathizing with their bad deeds, as illustrated perfectly in the last line: "Ever since I became acquainted with art my cell turned into a prison". "
|45 T3||Iron Man 2 (2010) - Apr 28, 2010
"Entertainment-wise decent, but neither as charming nor as packed with memorable moments as the original. And what's worse is that it doesn't really bring something new, something different or fresh to the genre - or the franchise. Quite indifferent, really - which is a word that you should NEVER have to use when describing a movie with Downey jr., Rourke AND Johansson (!)"
|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."
|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."
|100 T10||Babe (1995) - Oct 04, 2008
"If Hans Christian Andersen came back from the dead and decided to make a movie, if would probably look a lot like this. Pure-hearted joy and old-school fairytale charm has rarely - if ever - been captured more touching on celluloid than here. That'll do for a perfect score, pig. That'll do."
|35 T2||Machete (2010) - Nov 07, 2010
"Oh well, so much for expecting 'Movie of the Year'... The Machete-trailer was Grindhouse's most memorable part by far, but as a feature piece it loses its coolness at the same speed as the Matrix sequels. Hot chicks though - and that Don Johnson kid got talent. "
|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. "
|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."
|100 T10||Bird on a Wire (1974) - Jan 19, 2011
"One of those rare 'how did I ever manage to get by without having experienced this before?'-life changing eye openers. Cinema verite at its finest and a brief yet truthful and magic glimpse at what defines the poetic and musical genius that is Leonard Cohen."
