|93 T10||Coherence (2013) - Sep 24, 2015
"This is how to do a thrill ride and not be a big budget popcorn flick. Fast realistic dialogue almost instantly creates real characters and then its off. Starts out incredibly tense and mysterious and even scary and amps up the twists and the fun as it goes. Lots of thought and imagination behind this. I strongly liked the ending -- felt it totally appropriate to the story and its themes. One of those movies that leaves you breathless and reminds you why you like films "
|71 T7||Prince of Foxes (1949) - Apr 01, 2016
"Welles is always a great villain he's got the voice and the smarm for it. Power does well as the hero...his switch from sleaze to paragorn is written convincingly. An entertaining swashbuckler ( couple of cool swordfights in the end of aged well) that's helped by the location shooting...might not have liked it so much if it was an obvious studio affair."
|78 T8||The Berlin File (2013) - Oct 16, 2014
"i only briefly looked at the plot before watching this so i was surprised it was actually an action film, and not a spy thriller with lackluster action scenes forced into it. the story is decent enough, it stops short of becoming complicated although i did have to really focus to understand everything...which prob means repeat viewings will be more fun. im a sucker for 25 minute action finales...but wow that was some great direction for the final shootout...and a pistol-whip fight scene!"
|97 T10||Heroes of the East (1978) - Jun 28, 2013
"nonstop! the action only takes breaks for chinese and japanese people to yell at each other before another fight in another style breaks out. it's awesome."
|68 T6||Galaxy of Terror (1981) - Sep 14, 2016
"Certainly not one I'll soon forget. Fabulous ridiculous b movie. The plot involves some wacky space society run by a pseudo god and id love to see more b movies set in this universe. Loved seeing haig and englund of course and even boothby from star trek is here! I predicted every character death but 2 and obv no one can be prepared for the giant maggot worm's behavior. "
|76 T7||Don (2006) - Mar 24, 2014
"That was so much fun. Shahrukh Khan was a blast, music was great. The plot was a tad predictable, but kept itself interesting in the way it all unfolded. Kept up a good amount of twists. Having Don be a cheesy cartoon villain was fun even if it felt a bit out of place. Couldn't handle the whispered "Don!"s on the soundtrack though, that was just a touch too much."
|89 T10||A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum (1966) - Jan 02, 2015
"if the stage version puts this to shame then damn i gotta see that stage version bc i loved this movie. it was hilarious, everyone acted out their gags perfectly, and it moved at a ridiculously fast pace. i did read that many songs were cut, and i really liked the songs that were in there and prob would have rated even higher if it had a couple more. the whole thing was pure fun. zero mostel does carry most of the humor. buster keaton popping in was fantastic."
|68 T6||At the Earth's Core (1976) - Aug 20, 2016
"Weird as hell. The soundtrack is spooky and sounds like a very extended psychedelic rock intro..but it really sells the film. Mcclure may not be the hero we want...but he's the hero we get anyway. Cushing is hilarious and way over the top. I didn't mind the dated effects and as i let myself get into the mindaltering soundtrack i actually found some of the psychic pterodactyl bits effective and tense(which has just convinced most anyone reading this to disregard all i say but whatever)"
|81 T8||Richard III (1995) - Jan 29, 2016
"Above anything else the alternate Britain really makes this a must see. Its melded so perfectly into the story of richard iii. Fascinating just for that, but all of the cast delivers as well. Mckellen is probably too old but its easily overlooked as he is charismatic, conniving, dark, sly and witty performing as richard."
|83 T9||Detective Dee and the Mystery of the Phantom Flame (2010) - Apr 03, 2013
"Slightly better than an average popcorn movie. Has some really truly magical moments, great action choreography by Sammo Hung, and the mystery isn't entirely predictable."
