"It's by no means an excellent film but it's got enough redeeming qualities to make it worthwhile for a single viewing."
|92 95%||Double Indemnity (1944) - Apr 14, 2008
"Bloody great noir with superb dialog and tremendously tense scenes. You can easily see where so many noir trademarks can be attributed to this film and rightly so. It has a femme fatale, protagonist narration and snappy dialog. Add to this a stellar cast and you've got a fantastic movie that has certainly withstood the test of time. Simply put you owe it to yourself to see this film."
|75 62%||The Specials (2000) - Jan 22, 2007
"It's really funny if you enjoy the "run on improv" type humour. Some of the jokes drag but for the most part they're good. Still it could've been better with a higher budget."
|92 95%||Léon: The Professional (1994) - Aug 13, 2007
"An unusual and wonderfully written action film by Luc Besson. Very inventive and intense action scenes with incredible performances from all involved, especially Gary Oldman as the psychopathic antagonist. As a note I'd highly recommend getting the extended version (known in America as "Leon: The Professional" and not "The Professional")."

"Totally going against the grain here but I actually found this movie quite enjoyable, even for multiple viewings. Kurt Russell is very good here, much in the same sense Arnold Schwarzenegger is excellent in his Terminator roles. It's got some great scenes ("Affirmative two") and the setting itself is very good. I think that with a higher budget and a director that cared less for flash it could've been much better. Still it's good and Paul W.S. Anderson's best by far."
|92 95%||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."
|86 86%||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."
|99 99%||There Will Be Blood (2007) - Feb 26, 2008
"I have been told by multiple people that "There Will Be Blood" is the best film of the past decade, even with such expectations the film did not fail to deliver on any level. Daniel Day-Lewis is astounding providing what may very well be the best performance ever but let's not forget about the support cast. Paul Dano is astounding and so is everyone else; every bit role is just perfect. The cinematography, the music, everything about the film is amazing. It will go down in cinema history."

"Visually it is an absolutely beautiful film, the Oracle dance is breathtaking. Every action sequence is nothing short of sheer perfection, honestly this movie will become text book "how to make ass-kicking look awesome." Certainly the plot is on the thin side but it is told in the manner of a glorious psyching-up legend that it feels just right. Gerard Butler is fantastic as the larger-than-life Leonidas and I thought the rest of the cast did decent jobs all around. "
|87 88%||Goldfinger (1964) - Oct 26, 2008
"Fantastic James Bond film with Sean Connery at his finest. I'll be honest and say that I think Casino Royale is the best James Bond film but I'll be damned if anyone but Connery is the best James Bond. This film perfectly blends entertaining acting with a great plot and all the elements that will become signatures in James Bond films since this movie. This is the movie to see if you want to see a fantastic womanizing spy be just that."
