#11 - PeaceAnarchy has 2589 stars from 361 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."
#12 - Mentaculus has 1658 stars from 350 usersAlice in Wonderland - Mentaculus's Most Popular Review
23 - "In his most strident political commentary since Planet of the Apes, Burton shows the folly of the current American Two Party system, and the malaise caused by the healthcare lobby through the Red Queen's associates. In quite an intertextual populist jibe, he mocks the jobless economic recovery by employing over 200 CGI animators to create even less character and life than 30 dudes with pencils in the 1950's."
#13 - theficionado has 1405 stars from 334 usersScott Pilgrim vs. the World - theficionado's Most Popular Review
88 - "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"
#14 - eveelun has 1470 stars from 333 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. "

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. ;) "
#16 - BillyShears has 5838 stars from 322 usersHobo with a Shotgun - BillyShears's Most Popular Review
90 - "A shockingly realistic account of life in Maritime Canada. "
#17 - OMGFridge has 2097 stars from 314 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. "
#18 - djross has 2416 stars from 310 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."
#19 - Nathan S has 1835 stars from 306 users2001: A Space Odyssey - Nathan S's Most Popular Review
6 - "My favorite film, impossible to overstate the pedestal from which it radiates. A monument reverberating through science fiction, special effects technology, the art of cinema. Scientific plausibility and human ingenuity cannot contain this far out imagination, expressionist and surreal, an ambiguous spiritualism, cosmic wonder at things beyond mortal capacity. The most spellbinding audiovisual work of the mid-century; brain-itching allegory conveyed in spine-tingling aesthetic. An experience."
#20 - KMcNeil has 1222 stars from 305 usersBeginners - KMcNeil's Most Popular Review
10 - "The impossible task of trying to love and live, while dealing with an existential grief is handled expertly in "Beginners". It's a real rarity: A movie that feels genuine. Strip away the interactions, the small shifts in facial expressions and all the things unsaid, and you're left with a very ordinary movie. Fortunately these things can't be stripped away. They're part of the movie's flesh and blood. They're the very fabric of life. "Beginners" is pain and catharsis rolled into one."
