Pulp Fiction
Perfect 55 Points 1994

Quentin Tarantino at his best. Honestly, I think this should be voted one of the best movies of the 90’s. With a lineup of John Travolta, Uma Thurman, Bruce Willis, Samuel L Jackon, Rosanna Arquette, and most of the others – this film can do no wrong. Add its hallmark witty dialog and intricate …

Fight Club
Perfect 107 Points 1999

Let’s talk about Fight Club. A contemporary classic, David Fincher’s surreal masterpiece makes killer use of several cinematic power tools: sophisticated CGI and film processing, faux sophisticated alienation, throbbing music, Brad Pitt. You gotta give this nihilistic triumph grudging credit….

The Dark Knight

Wickedly funny, morally complex, tremendously engaging: Comik movies get no better. Worthy of its monumental hype, The Dark Knight far exceeds its immediate predecessor Batman Begins and arguably outshines the original Batman….

American Beauty
Perfect 9 Points 1999

Well deserving of it’s countless amounts of praise and the best picture Oscar that came with it, American Beauty is, in my opinion, one of the definitive films of the 1990’s and a perfect, if not terrifyingly authentic, portrayal of American suburbia.

Kevin Spacey stars as Lester Burnham. Les…

Sunset Blvd.
Perfect 66 Points 1950

Hollywood’s greatest confection is and has always been Hollywood, a reality that the fabulous imagery of Sunset Blvd. celebrates better than any movie before or since. Oh yeah, it’s also a hell of a lot of fun, a black & white cauldron of irony, ambition and beauty, full of devilish turns and …

Malèna
Perfect 66 Points 2000

Deeply, floridly Italian, Malèna is a sumptuous WWII find, a Sicilian movie extraordinaire and a devastating depiction of Italian machismo reacting to the hottest signorina since Sophia Loren.

Monica Belluci plays the title character, a gorgeous war bride living in a small Sicilian town, bro…

A Simple Plan
Perfect 66 Points 1998

The slippery slope of crime reached a peak cinematic representation in A Simple Plan. An ill-gotten gain sets the plot in motion, after which the movie follows an exquisite slide into further felonious excitations. This scratches several erogenous zones for lovers of crime cinema. We so enjoy v…
