    Groundhog Day
    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.

    #2 - 60 stars for KasperL's Review of District 9

    District 9
    90 - Science fiction is, for me, all about the world that is created. More often than not it is the vision as a whole, rather than the plot, that sticks - and what a world Blomkamp creates here! Nevermind the allegory, this is about faultlessly realized aliens and mindblowingly cool weaponry. It's pure fun and, for once, a mockumentary framing device works very well, meshing seamlessly with the mindless action. Oh, and Copley does a great job, too, as the weird but loveable Wikus.

    #3 - 57 stars for KasperL's Review of Let the Right One In

    Let the Right One In
    90 - Truly original. Perfectly balanced. The mix of vampire horror and 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.
  • spunkie

    #4 - 51 stars for Spunkie's Review of Blade Runner

    Blade Runner
    97 - Blade Runner is more than Ridley, Vangelis, P.K. Dick, more than it's crew or material used in the work. From childhood the first time I saw the movie it's effect still dwells in my mind. The scenery is more melancholic than fourties America, or seventies France where hardboiled noir has it's own space. For me no special effect surpassed the beauty of Blade Running. Like a visual track for the lost causes. (ok managed to sound not like a scifi nerd, oh no movie geek is still at large)

    #5 - 50 stars for BillyShears's Review of The Witch

    The Witch
    90 - Nothing really sets a movie's tone faster than a baby in a mortar and pestle.
  • barthalen

    #6 - 47 stars for Barthalen's Review of Jurassic World

    Jurassic World
    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.
  • doctor7

    #7 - 46 stars for doctor7's Review of Terminator 2: Judgment Day

    Terminator 2: Judgment Day
    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.

    #8 - 44 stars for samik1981's Review of Eyes Wide Shut

    Eyes Wide Shut
  • sirstuckey

    #9 - 43 stars for SirStuckey's Review of The Hunger Games

    The Hunger Games
    70 - This is where I mention that "It's no Battle Royale" and then all the beautiful women in the world flock to me because I have shown them how cool and smart I am by having seen/read a more obscure movie/book that this borrowed heavily from. I will await these women in my bedding chambers.
  • pickpocket

    #10 - 41 stars for Pickpocket's Review of Lost in Translation

    Lost in Translation
    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.
