|83 T8||Layer Cake (2004) - May 09, 2008
"Fast paced and intense neo-noir. Craig's performance is fantastic and it was this film that made me completely confident of the success of Casino Royale after I heard he was going to be the new James Bond."
|80 T8||Ip Man (2008) - Feb 19, 2009
"Certainly one of the better kung fu movies to come out in the past while. It's got it's share of over the top melodrama but let's be fair, what kung fu flick doesn't? Donnie Yen kicks some major ass and actually creates a character with impressive depth and personally I think he's one of the best martial arts actors out there, specifically because he can actually act. If you like martial arts films this is certainly a movie to see."
|93 T10||The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King (2003) - Feb 24, 2007
"A great end to a near perfect adaption of the Lord of the Rings trilogy. I'm still amazed at how well these all turned out. Fantastic costumes, sets, CGI, acting, score, cinematography, everything. This trilogy will be watched for decades to come."
|73 T6||The Long Kiss Goodnight (1996) - Mar 06, 2010
"It's a damn entertaining action flick that certainly didn't deserve to bomb the way it did. Shane Black managed to write Samuel L. Jackson a superbly hilarious sidekick character that isn't annoying and Geena Davis manages to pull off being both a housewife and a hardcore CIA assassin. Looking back it reminds me of the Bourne series. An assassin gets shot, falls into the ocean, survives and gets rescued and sets on a quest to recover their memory."
|90 T10||The Way of the Gun (2000) - Feb 25, 2007
"Great dialog and extremely well written with lots of sub-plots that will probably force you to watch the movie multiple times in order to fully understand them. Ryan Phillippe earned my respect with his role in this movie and Benicio Del Toro is, as usual, fantastic. The action scenes are inventive and it features of the the most memorable car chases you will ever see. As well the opening scene is by far the most attention grabbing one I have ever seen."
|75 T7||Blades of Glory (2007) - Jun 04, 2008
"There aren't as many laughs as Anchorman but the laughs in this one are just hilarious. Will Ferrell's face during the most unmaly duet figure skating moves drove me to tears of laughter. I know it's essentially a repeat of his other films but I can't deny that I was laughing quite hard and I enjoyed it. "
|90 T10||The Proposition (2005) - Dec 22, 2009
"Brutal western that doesn't glorify the Australian outback and it's near-lawlessness during the late 19th century. A fantastic cast, with Guy Pearce as a semi-reformed outlaw and Ray Winstone as a lawman trying to do what is best in such harsh conditions. An absolute must see for any western fan or film enthusiast in general."
|85 T9||Trailer Park Boys: Countdown to Liquor Day (2009) - Dec 23, 2009
"Better than the other Trailer Park Boys movie, in my opinion. Again, I must say that I'm not well versed in the show but thankfully you don't have to be in order to jump into this film. No, it's not high brow comedy but it's hilarious and unlike anything else I've seen."
|95 T10||Dances with Wolves (1990) - Feb 14, 2008
" It seems that with this film you either love it or hate it. I loved it. Costner's direction shows the sheer brutality and amazing beauty of the old West with some breathtaking landscape cinematography. I particularly enjoyed how dynamically the Sioux people were portrayed as they didn't meet the Hollywood stereotype of being bloodthirsty savages or perfectly peaceful, noble and wise. It's an excellent western and certainly in my mind one of the best epics ever made."
|99 T10||Yojimbo (1961) - Jan 20, 2007
"Akira Kurosawa started the ground-breaking movie concept of the "anti-hero," played to absolute perfection by Toshiro Mifune as he uses sword fighting and political manipulation to force the two rival gangs to fight each other to death. Packed with larger than life characters whom you will never forget and teeming with Kurosawa's brilliant direction this movie is an absolute must for any film buff or samurai film fan."
