90 - "Nothing really sets a movie's tone faster than a baby in a mortar and pestle. "
#12 - PeaceAnarchy has 3380 stars from 408 usersDr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb - PeaceAnarchy's Most Popular Review
100 - "A magnificent black comedy. Peter Sellers does a great job with all his characters and even 40 years later much of the film's biting satire still feels relevant."
#13 - Magb has 2309 stars from 386 usersPan's Labyrinth - Magb's Most Popular Review
95 - "I love a good film about imagination and private fantasy worlds, and Pan's Labyrinth had me spellbound from beginning to end. Even though the template for the story is a fairy tale, the film has layers of complexity to it. The story is helped along immensely by wonderful art direction and special effects for the more fantastical elements, and perfect acting for the more earthbound parts. Fantastic stuff."
#14 - djross has 3624 stars from 375 users2001: A Space Odyssey - djross's Most Popular Review
100 - "The greatest American film of the 1960s, and probably the pinnacle of cinematic expression thus far achieved. A unique film, 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY is a reflection on the correspondence of anthropogenesis and technogenesis, and on the fate of this common origin. Note to first-time viewers: the first viewing of this film must be nowhere else than in a well-equipped large-screen cinema with high-quality sound. A singular achievement."
#15 - theficionado has 1572 stars from 364 usersScott Pilgrim vs. the World - theficionado's Most Popular Review
75 - "Not just canny commentary on how this generation's experiences are inextricably mediated through the prism of pop culture; it captures an attendant myopia, too. Any coincidence the film parallels Scott's fundamental narcissism w/ the endless parade of exclusionary inside jokes? Or that Scott (and by extension the audience) finds it impossible to separate his culture-saturated inner world from the world at large? It's all exhilaratingly, uninhibitedly hyperreal: Baudrillard would have a field day"
#16 - cagedwisdom has 2234 stars from 362 usersAlice in Wonderland - cagedwisdom's Most Popular Review
25 - "Tim, I think we need to talk. I want us to start seeing other films. This just isn't working for me, and I've been feeling this way for a long time. I've told you time and time again to plant the red roses, yet you keep planting the white ones and I refuse to keep up this nonsensical painting business. I guess this is goodbye. PS: Stephen, call me later. ;) "
#17 - eveelun has 1633 stars from 359 usersA Clockwork Orange - eveelun's Most Popular Review
100 - "Brilliant, savagely cynical, perceptive, funny, perpetually relevant - this movie, for me, perfectly demonstrates the power of the film medium at its highest potential. The comments on virtue, free will, redemption, religion, government, radicalism, and the human spirit are accurately and beautifully expressed through McDowell's sublime performance and Kubrick's impeccable and meticulous direction. "
#18 - OMGFridge has 2381 stars from 343 usersDr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb - OMGFridge's Most Popular Review
11 - "A movie that can make fun of nuclear warfare during the height of nuclear paranoia while being deliciously amusing certainly fills out the checklist of being a black comedy. Stanley Kubrick has not only made a movie that was great for its time but also is still funny, smart and memorable by today's standards. The classic scenes, one-liners and performances from both Sellers and Scott launch this bizarre one of a kind movie into masterpiece status. "
#19 - Okkervil has 2404 stars from 342 usersAngels & Demons - Okkervil's Most Popular Review
5 - "This film is based on the ungood book by Dan Brown. As the book is written in a style that is not good I thought I would write my review about this bad film & its badness in the same style Mr Brown does his books when he writes his books. In short the silly film is not a good film, as the silly film is boring and dull and is not a good film. Even a competent director as Ron Howard can't make the silly film unsilly, as its based on the poorly written book which resulted in the film being ungood."
#20 - Nathan S has 2273 stars from 341 usersDr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb - Nathan S's Most Popular Review
6 - "This for-the-ages satire is so outrageous, so nightmarishly wicked it actually comes prefaced with a note of reassurance from the powers that be. Kubrick repudiates Cold War paradox with comic absurdity and intellectual acuity. Its funniest principle is the equation of hardline militarism with sexual immaturity or impotence. The trio of performances from Sellers, Scott, and Hayden, the War Room set design, and Pickens riding the bomb are now iconic, pervasive in popular and political culture."
