#11 - PeaceAnarchy has 2484 stars from 347 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 1436 stars from 332 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 - eveelun has 1433 stars from 327 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."
#14 - theficionado has 1324 stars from 322 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"
#15 - cagedwisdom has 1731 stars from 317 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. ;)"
#16 - OMGFridge has 2007 stars from 305 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."
#17 - BillyShears has 4926 stars from 304 usersHobo with a Shotgun - BillyShears's Most Popular Review
90 - "A shockingly realistic account of life in Maritime Canada."
#18 - KMcNeil has 1213 stars from 303 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."
#19 - Nathan S has 1781 stars from 295 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 - Okkervil has 1893 stars from 293 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."
