Perfect 80 Points 1999

After long avoiding this movie, I was compelled to watch it by Massie’s simple declaration of its perfection. He’s right, this is a perfect movie, long yet packed with necessary detail, suspenseful even though the end is never in doubt, chock full of charismatic performances by three of our great…

Perfect 12 Points 1999

One of my all time favorite movies by probably my favorite writer/director of today. This movie is a little long, but never feels like it as it juggles as many as 8 story lines at once in brilliant PTA fashion.

Hail the maximum sword and sandal movie. Gladiator tells a relatively unadorned story stupendously well. Its great star – Russell Crowe – fights above his weight class, delivering a superman performance while hewing to his characteristically understated readings.

Highly watchable then and …

This movies was absoluting stunning. Franky G proves that he is more than just muscles. The man’s true acting ability shines. The move is down to earth and easily relatable. The camera angles are crude at times, and shaky, but it adds to the film. The film was low budget and a huge smash the sund…

Perfect 5 Points 2005

LExi Alexander’s debut film, “Green Street hooligans”, is a revelation. Starting off with a bit of grip from the very beginning, it eventually tightens thr grip to a point of suffocation…meaning that it rarely lets up for air. A Gritty film starring Elijah Wood and Charlie Hunnam (a name even…

Devastatingly good story, achingly well performed, The Kite Runner – a must see movie and among the best of a very good year – illuminates one of the most important cultures of our time. Not light fare, though wonderfully joyous in stretches, The Kite Runner serves as the perfect set-up for "Char…

Perfect 34 Points 2007

Based on the story of Jean-Dominique Bauby who gets trapped by a paralyzing stroke. He can’t move, can’t speak, and can only see out of his left eye. This movie is terrifying when you think about how you would feel in his situation, and as such becomes incredibly mesmerizing to watch. Those who w…

The Wire
Perfect 14 Points 2002

Absolutely the best TV series I have ever watched!! The show follows both the Baltimore cops as well as the Baltimore drug rings for 5 tremendous seasons, often showing that even cops can act like criminals and criminals like cops. The acting is so perfect, so totally believable, that you forget …

Badges? We don’t need no stinkin’ badges!

The Treasure of the Sierra Madre, OTOH, does need to be viewed by every serious movie fan. By turns funny, challenging and intriguing, it deserves its status as one of the greatest movies of all time. Humphrey Bogart’s scurrilous Fred C. Dobbs …
