"This is easily the best fighting movie that has an obvious "made for TV" low budget feel. The story is quite a bit shallow, which is nothing new for this type of film, but it does have quite a good cast (including Rufio from Hook) which lifts the movie up from being terribly like it would've been with a lesser cast. The fight scenes are the reason this movie is a must see for an action fan, though. They are superbly filmed and choreographed making this a fantastic low-budget fight movie."

"Most certainly it has one of the best soundtracks I've ever heard and is certainly worth mentioning. Combine that with Daniel Day-Lewis, who is never anything short of pure perfect in every film he's in, and Michael Mann, an incredibly capable director, and you have a brilliant film. Yes, it does have a few "Hollywood" moments but I found that they only slightly detracted from the film, nowhere near enough to make much of an impact. Excellent film."

"Yes, it is Tommy Boy 2. The main determining factor on whether you will highly enjoy this movie, find it "OK" or total crap will be, of course, what you thought of the original. No, it's not as good as Tommy Boy but it does has it's share of hilarious moments. I've seen the most grizzled anti-Farley fan belly-laugh during then scene where Spade beats him with the broom. If you didn't guess I love Chris Farley so this movie is all good in my books."
|75 62%||The X-Files: I Want to Believe (2008) - Aug 27, 2008
"Better than the first movie in some aspects and worse than the first in others. It doesn't touch upon the great wielding conspiracy that overshadowed the show's final seasons, this could be considered bad but personally it was a plus for me. As well, unlike the first X-Files film, it allows someone that hasn't followed the show to actually watch this an have an idea of what's going on. If you have watched the show it plays out like a good, not great, extended monster of the week episode."
|90 91%||The Emperor's New Groove (2000) - Mar 05, 2007
"The funniest animated film I have ever seen. It's positively hilarious. Unlike your average Disney film it doesn't have tons of songs every few minutes and relies on the characters for entertainment. Great for adults and kids alike!"
|91 93%||Goodfellas (1990) - Feb 27, 2007
"My favourite Scorsese movie. Everyone is in top form. Liotta, Pesci, De Niro, everyone. The fact that it's based on a true story makes it even more frightening. Most certainly Scorsese's masterpiece."
|88 89%||Letters from Iwo Jima (2006) - Feb 19, 2007
"Fantastic movie. Some breath-taking shots capture the sheer horrific scale of the battle. Ken Watanabe is absolutely amazing. A few kind of corney moments ("Do what is right because it is right.") but it's still a great movie that compliments Flags of our Fathers very well."
|95 98%||The Social Network (2010) - Oct 05, 2010
"You might get wrapped up in the fact that Sorkin writes more for story-telling than 100% factual accuracy but if you do then you'll miss out on a superb film. More than anything The Social Network captures how ill-equipped every involved was the the explosion of Facebook. The entire cast is superb, the soundtrack is terrifyingly good and Fincher masterfully directs a film about nerds suing one another into a emotionally gripping and tension filled movie. Incredible."
|92 95%||Bon Cop, Bad Cop (2006) - Mar 01, 2007
"I'm Canadian and this movie is absolutely hilarious. It's got some great action, the main cast have fantastic chemistry and there's some very impressive cinematography in parts. Well worth seeing! If you're the target audience this film is superb, allthough you may not enjoy it as much if you're not Canadian."

"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."
