Overall Star Rankings
#1 - Pickpocket has 4300 stars from 474 usersLost in Translation - Pickpocket's Most Popular Review
10 - "I love it. It's just nice to look at all the beautiful scenery, very dreamy. I can always pop this in if I'm having a bad day and feel infinitely better. Also, the soundtrack is perfect and Kevin Shields should be forced to work on more films. Bill Murray is always immensely watchable and it's no different here. One of my favorites."
#2 - MartinTeller has 4357 stars from 472 usersGroundhog Day - MartinTeller's Most Popular Review
72 - "You will not be permitted to continue your life until you fuck Andie MacDowell. THE GODS DEMAND THAT YOU GET INSIDE ANDIE MACDOWELL'S PANTS."
#3 - frederic_g54 has 3038 stars from 457 usersThe Dark Knight - frederic_g54's Most Popular Review
8 - "Where Batman Begins had a far better script and less eye-rolling moments, this film triumphed thanks to its great performances and action sequences. To say Ledger was phenomenal as the Joker would be a gross understatement. It's a character and performance I won't soon forget. Nolan's direction is right on the money too. The script, however, was too contrived and could have used a bit of polishing. Other than that, this is one of the best films of the year, see it twice, or even more."
#4 - Alex Watkins has 3488 stars from 448 usersApocalypse Now - Alex Watkins's Most Popular Review
10 - "My favorite film, a surreal, haunting, visually flamboyant masterpiece. It's one awe-inspiring sequence after another, from the "Ride of the Valkyries" bombing to the incredibly nightmarish encounter at the Do Luong bridge. ("Who's your commanding officer?" "Ain't you?") Few other epics so freely embrace their own insanity, and it works to brilliant effect. Some movies transcend their genres; this one transcends its medium. This is the end..."
#5 - KasperL has 5110 stars from 409 usersLet the Right One In - KasperL's Most Popular Review
90 - "Truly original. Perfectly balanced. The mix of vampire-horror with a coming-of-age story of a bullied boy proves very potent because supernatural happenings to Oskar seem not that much more violent and weird than the everyday life of growing up. The kids are as great as the cinematography is brilliant. A wonderful surprise and the best film of 2008."
#6 - doctor7 has 3861 stars from 409 usersTerminator 2: Judgment Day - doctor7's Most Popular Review
90 - "This movie is the true reason for Arnold Schwarzenegger's fame. He plays the role of the Terminator to perfection and Robert Patrick's distinct haunting presence is brilliant. The visuals are, even now, quite impressive. The dialog and story are both excellent. Indeed, this is one of the best action films you'll ever see and arguably James Cameron's best film."
#7 - Ytadel has 2899 stars from 405 usersJack - Ytadel's Most Popular Review
1 - "Francis Ford Coppola's masterful followup to The Godfather saga."
#8 - Moribunny has 2125 stars from 370 usersChinatown - Moribunny's Most Popular Review
98 - "Polanski does a wonderful job, the cast does a wonderful job, but Robert Towne's script steals the show. After a thousand little pieces fall right into place at the very last scene, the sheer perfection of this story hits you, hard."
#9 - Barthalen has 4030 stars from 358 usersJurassic World - Barthalen's Most Popular Review
48 - ""..and as you can see" the head accountant continues, "adding the Poochiesaurus Rex boosts expected revenue to ridiculous heights." The Omni Consumer Products execs applaud. "Once we realised we could simply copy the original product and replace its 'suspense' and 'sense of wonder' with our InsultinglyContrivedBullshit formula, we got results! We present to you... Jurassic World!". A reanimated dinosaur corpse shuffles into the room. It opens its crooked, drooling maw. Money falls out. Applause."
#10 - Magb has 2183 stars from 357 usersUnforgiven - Magb's Most Popular Review
95 - "Unforgiven is not a western, it's an anti-western. It's the conscience of every western, and of the old west itself. Its protagonist is its antagonist and vice versa. Morgan Freeman, Gene Hackman, and of course Eastwood himself, all deliver great performances, and most of the supporting cast is equally good. The movie makes intelligent statements about violence and man's capabilitity for evil. I don't know if I can ever look at a more "conventional" western the same way again."
