The Dirty Dozen
Perfect 22 Points 1967

Best cast ever. Best men on a mission war movie ever.

A Hard Day's Night
Perfect 68 Points 1964

Pop art perfection, A Hard Day’s Night captures the greatest band ever in their greatest movie. While they’d make other movies and more transcendent music, Richard Lester’s revolutionary film revealed the Beatles to be as smart as they were sexy. And they were super sexy. Mockumentary closeu…

Elizabeth
Perfect 66 Points 1998

Elizabeth is a smashingly good movie – presented with great aplomb – about worldshaping events, centered on arguably the greatest queen of all time. All that and the great Cate Blanchett’s first ever motion picture role – for which she was nominated for the Best Actress Oscar.

Politically t…

The 39 Steps
Perfect 66 Points 1935

Delightful and gripping, this early Hitchcock gem became the model for fugitive hero thrillers ever since. Terrifically entertaining – albeit dated in dialog, edginess and production values – The 39 Steps is a must see for anyone interested in the original hero-on-the-run-from-the-good-and-bad…

The Madness of ...
Perfect 66 Points 1994

Fascinating history lessons are rarely tremendously entertaining, yet The Madness of King George is both. Frequently funny, often charming, it’s nevertheless chockablock with important historical insights about the British government, crown and class system, and the ignorant barbarity of pre-mo…

The King's Speech
Perfect 88 Points 2010

Who knew? The Brits no doubt, but we Yanks were unaware of the stammering tribulations that the current Queen Elizabeth’s father endured, let alone that England’s fortitude in World War II required him to overcome them. Most impressively, who would have guessed that this true story would make s…

Edge of Tomorrow
Perfect 83 Points 2014

Terrifically well-conceived SciFi Fantasy is rare. Add an ageless superstar in a role ideal for his particular set of skills, opposite a beautiful screen-queen making her buffed-up action debut, in a 3D production up to the challenge of visualizing time travel and interplanetary war, and you’re …

In Theaters Now

The fate of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is in sticky good hands as Spider-Man improves to perfection in Tom Holland’s sophomore outing. Indeed, Far from Home gives us everything we want in a blockbuster.

It starts by playing out the changing-of-the-guard that began in the still-in-theaters…

Really Great 37 Points 1998

Do war movies get any better than this? Puts you right there, in all the graphic realism that comes with war. But not just any war movie, this story spins a great tale that follows Hanks and his crew looking for and saving Ryan (Pitt). If you like war movies, this is a must-see.

Eastern Promises
Really Great 70 Points 2007

Perhaps the best film of the year: captivating, surprising, taut, sexy, fresh (even though it covers well trod themes of many a mob movie before). Showcases the quiet charisma of Viggo Mortensen in perhaps his finest role yet.
