|83 T8||Mildred Pierce (1945) - Aug 13, 2007
"A great film. Joan Crawford is fantantasic and Eve Arden is absolutely hilarious. A tragic tale of a capable woman breaking the shackles of depending on the men in her life. Only to have the one thing she treasures most and worked so hard to provide a good life for, her daughter, turn out to become a terribly selfish person."
|75 T7||Hook (1991) - Mar 10, 2008
"I found it to be a good take on the Peter Pan story, sure it's not Spielberg's best but it's still entertaining stuff. Robin Williams is great and suits the part. Dustin Hoffman is fantastic and makes Hook a very memorable villain. It's got some great theatrical sets plus it's got some really comedic moments. It's certainly a kid's movie in the end though but it's still entertaining enough for adults to watch at least once."
|78 T7||An Ideal Husband (1999) - Aug 13, 2007
"As a fan of Oscar Wilde is really enjoyed this film. Rupert Everett and Minnie Driver are both excellent in their roles."
|92 T10||Cop Land (1997) - Jul 23, 2009
"Without a doubt this is my favourite Stallone movie. I consider it better than the original Rocky or Rambo. Here we have a stellar cast: De Niro, Ray Liotta, Harvey Keitel and Robert Patrick. Stallone is the star and you'd think he'd be completely out of his league but not only does he manages to hold his own against other great actors but he actually really, really shines. This is an excellent slow-paced thriller that's definitely not standard Stallone action-fare. Must see for sure."
|84 T9||The Hurt Locker (2009) - Feb 17, 2009
"Unbelievably tense thriller with fantastic acting and I have to say the special appearances are incredibly well used to keep movie veterans guessing as to what's happening next. While it's not a flawless film the documentary style really lends to the gritty reality and tension of being a bomb disposal unit in Iraq. The Hurt Locker has the best depiction of why it is so hard to adjust to a "normal" life after being deployed in such a hostile environment. Must see in my opinion."
|75 T7||Lake Placid (1999) - Aug 29, 2008
"This movie would be complete B-movie fodder if it wasn't for the hilarious performances from Oliver Platt and Brendan Gleeson. They literally save this film in my books. Betty White, as well, is quite hilarious with her small amount of screen time. I normally don't like horror flicks but this movie has enough great laughs to keep you quite entertained. Sure the science is pretty goofy but it's a horror film so who cares."
|91 T10||Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (1989) - Aug 13, 2007
"Excellent sequel. It manages to get back to what makes Indiana Jones so much fun in the first place. A great story. Memorable (but not due to being annoying) characters. Harrison Ford is just as good as ever and Sean Connery is fantastic, together they have a great humorous father-son relationship. Great humour and tons of adventure and excitement. While I still slightly prefer Raiders of the Lost Ark this is still a fantastic film and a must see for any adventure/action movie fan."
|85 T9||Judgment at Nuremberg (1961) - Aug 13, 2007
"Excellent movie with powerful and moving performances from all involves. Raises excellent moral questions while allowing the viewer to conclude on their own answers. In certain parts it does seem to fall to pro-American pride but this is rare and completely overshadowed by the rest of the film's excellence."
|86 T9||Super Troopers (2002) - Aug 13, 2007
"Indeed it's a stoner movie, which I normally detest, but this is actually very funny. Packed with ridiculous situations, hilarious dialog and tons of over-the-top characters the sheer absurdity of it all results in some serious laughs throughout the entire film. It's rare that a movie can keep you laughing all the way through but this movie starts out strong and doesn't stop."
|81 T8||Dr. No (1962) - Oct 21, 2008
"Not the greatest James Bond film out there but definitely a strong start. The high-tech stuff is quite dated now but if you're either willing to let that go or accept that it takes place far in the past then it won't be a problem at all. Sean Connery makes a fantastic James Bond, and in my opinion the best one out of everyone who has portrayed the character. Great spy movie."
