|100 99%||Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991) - Sep 11, 2008
"1991..the year Cameron made the best SciFi-Action movie of all time. With a monster budget of 94. Million $ ( that was a record in 1991 ) he created a movie that stands for a whole generation. Dark, brutal and dystopian. A movie with no hope and no happy end.130 thrilling minutes full of action you've never seen before. Terminator is an inherent part of the 90's. Judgement day will come, it's just a matter of time"
|100 99%||The Cook, the Thief, His Wife, and Her Lover (1989) - Apr 02, 2009
"The Movie shows the conflict between two worlds. The world of money on one side & the world of art & culture on the other.Each side is represented by two groups.Greenaway works with many symbols, changing costumes, colors, light effects etc. The opulent costumes were created by Gaultier, the excellent Soundtrack came from Nyman ( who created the sound for "The Pianao" ) It's my most favorite Greenaway.Visually one of the greatest works i've ever seen."
|99 99%||Dersu Uzala (1975) - Jul 29, 2009
"Incompareable to other Kurosawa's and my most favorite ! One of the few Films I couldn't hide my tears. Just beautiful and moving."
|99 99%||Grave of the Fireflies (1988) - Sep 12, 2008
"Grave of the Fireflies is NOT a film for children... not only. I think it's one of the best anti-war films ever made. After watching that Movie the only thing you can do is switch off the TV, go to bed, wipe away your tears and try to sleep. That was my experience with that movie. And I'm not really emotional. There is no light at the end of the tunnel...in this world or anywhere else..sad but true"
|96 95%||City Lights (1931) - Mar 12, 2011
"This was the most charming romance I've ever seen on screen. Chaplin is a phenomenon. I guess no artist can carry so much feelings with his mimic and body language than Mr. Chaplin. The box fight taken by the short "The Champion" is my personal fun highlight in this movie. No one should miss "City Lights" in his movie collection. A rare and "silent" gem!"
|99 99%||A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984) - Sep 12, 2008
"N.o.E.S. was Craven's big shot, and in my opinion his best work ever. Robert Englund reached cult status in the 80's, and rose to the top of nightmare creatures like Michael Myers, Jason Vorhees or Leatherface."
|100 99%||2001: A Space Odyssey (1968) - Sep 11, 2008
"It's a great movie that was his time ahead and my most favorite movie ever. The effectd in "2001" are better than todays Hollywood crap. 40 years after "A Space Odyssey" starts in cinemas, the movie losts nothing on its fascination. A dark future prophecy that's not so unreal, and it's more than just science fiction. Machines will replace us...no doubt. Today and even more in the future.So which roll play's humanity in 100 years ??? "
|90 79%||Hard Eight (1996) - Jul 12, 2009
"Hard Eight is a visually great movie. Anderson's first work offers a great cast up ahead Philip Baker Hall. Even the secondary charakters like Philip Seymour Hoffman's short tryst is brilliant too. It's not the plot that stands in the center...it's the whole schmear that creates a special atmosphere. Slow & patient..but never boring. Great "
|90 79%||The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974) - Sep 13, 2008
"TCM is an all-time classic movie that never ( even more than 20 years later ) lost any of his intensive feeling. Gunnar Hansen's chainsaw dance is unique and no remake ever will reach on Tobe Hoopers masterpiece from the early 70's. This movie was the inspiration for innumerable flicks that followed in the 80's, 90's and even today."
|96 95%||Seven Samurai (1954) - Dec 21, 2009
"Kurosawa invented the action cinema with "Seven Samurai" and created a brand new genre. A vast number of followers were the result. And even half a century later, this movie don't have to hide behind modern movies. This movie is magic. Story telling, acting, cinematography, sound. Just epic !!"
