½

So dumb, suffice to be the dumbest of all marvel movies !

What Happened to Monday

A unique theme, melancholic though will resonate a long time to come. Brilliantly made to perfection, but gone underrated as usual due to hypocritical critics. The portraits are perfect suffice to land in Oscar zone, but bet it will evade them. Suffice to say Hollywood will take a huge none in how a surreal though sci-fi theme could be made.

Really gone underrated nevertheless a excellent court room classic. It is fair to surmise that adverse comments made to fuel the ratings are made by righteous perception on sexuality.

Truth but the whole truth said loud and clear !

The Square(2017)

If the square is mathematically evaluated, it has no beginning, no end either. Absolutely insane and a nightmare of an elder.

The Heroes of Telemark

Wither good numbers for a brilliant movie ?

Roman J. Israel, Esq.

How come these numbers in the rating ?

½

When really elevated and not deserving movies are high rated, this goes to the guillotine by the (always) hippocratic so called Oscars.

The Disaster Artist

Another overrated one when there were lot to be given credit in 2017.

Call Me by Your Name

Another misjudged movie and given higher grade that it does not deserve.

Sorcerer(1977)

Can not think any other movies went through these kind of natures' bash. So little said about this movie but it has produced something that will resonate till the movies industry lasts.

The Ghost and the Darkness
½

Another epitome of proving so called movie critics are morons.

Baby Driver
Baby Driver(2017)
½

Hi Speed chases and some adrenaline pumping scenes would make a movie good? Another typical bad movie that goes in higher ratings.

U-Turn(1997)

Depiction of the darkest side of US done at maximum, it's a pity that Oscars evaded this brilliant movie as its conduct has a disparity of selection.

A Woman Under the Influence

The disparity of choice for Oscars are evident here in the highest form. Else, it wouldn't have been mare nomination, thus wins!

½

As for any project Travolta does the difference and it works perfectly : Means business at 100%.

Southern Comfort

A memento in film history.

Rosewood(1997)

One of the most memorable historical event in a movie. But, unfairly underrated as customary US style when trivia movies goes higher when the best ones go unnoticed - Sad !

Paris, Texas
Paris, Texas(1984)

It's a pity that many goes movies goes un-noticed and underrated, but these types of melancholic flops are higher rated. Totally surreal theme and not an iota of pragmatic value. If it would have been categorized as a kids fantasy, that would have done it some good.

Witness
Witness(1985)
½

One of the high Octane thrillers, none the less the best of 80's.

Mississippi Burning

So intense that It makes the whole world, (perhaps not USA) sad.

Transsiberian
½

In two instances, the plot is surreal and it makes the movie laughable. One is the male American supposed to be murdered or injured, but he comes out of it without a hitch but no explanation either.
The other is when the female American was in hot pursuit for love in the wilds at the ruined church, with a slight disturbance she is changed completely that went ballistic to kill the Spaniard.

½

Barbara Carrera makes a memorable performance and the music score adds spice to the movie. One of the Norris 2 best movies.

Hell or High Water
½

A mirror image of an all American macho psychosis.

Benny's Video

Not worth a Haneke joint.

Amores Perros

Gruesome truth said if full and loud. It's well evident that Alejandro González Iñárritu has replaced the king of surrealism Luis Bunuel out from the helm.

Dunkirk
Dunkirk(2017)

No holes barred in pursuing excellence

Unbroken
Unbroken(2014)

Hippocratic stance in TR is in full exposure here. Sad this epic war drama gone underrated.

Gotti(1996)

Great in all departments.

½

Complete waste of time and money. So asinine.

Beverly Hills Cop II
½

The only part among the 3 movies that has some real sense.

Beverly Hills Cop

The plot is so stupid and out of the pragmatic comedy parameters.

This is one epitome of the rating hypocrisy that Very good movies go under rated terrible, and the utter bagatelle and trivial ones get good accolade.

The Boys from Brazil

Portraits by all are not up to standard and that makes the movie dull.

½

Sad a good movie went so underrated. Can feel this is customary ?

Chi-Raq
Chi-Raq(2015)

It is so messy and never on par with 'Do the right thing'.
Hope the technical aspect was simple as the 1989 classic that would have made this movie a cult classic. Disappointing at the end as this is a Lee joint!

Sea of Love
Sea of Love(1989)

A "B grade" adventure ?

Thelma & Louise

It's a very strange plot to many other movies. No flaws in the run and it's a mare life journey than a drama. The psychological aspect of the story is in the ubiquitous form in many families especially in US.It has addressed a flaw in basic human nature. By and by, brilliant movie making and sad the movies had an underrated score.

The Revenant
The Revenant(2015)

Time just pass by with Leo and when finished you would hit the floor with a bang. Means you are in the real world. In simple, Epic in every angle, every aspect !

Horrible and complete waste of time.

Independence Day: Resurgence

Certainly, this sequel blew the original from it's glory, not because this is good - worst and dull !

2012
2012(2009)
½

The plot was horrible and surlier where it should have been somewhat pragmatic like 'The Day After Tomorrow". Suffice to describe the visual effects are awesome and the cast does their best to keep the going as tough as possible.

Get Out
Get Out(2017)

It's certainly evident Steven King never saw it coming ! This has made a new trend and it will continue but not in this capacity, never !

Straight Outta Compton

A clear cut piece of Music/Social History done perfectly !

United 93
United 93(2006)
½

No nonsense, next to truth, peace of history told in a simple way. If it had been too macho and patriotic, there would not have an emphasis on the truth. All in all, it had managed to be within the proper frame - Brilliant!

Silent Rage
Silent Rage(1982)

It would have been a classic movie if the science fiction aspect only highlighted. But suffice to say, all in all it's a classic entertainment movie !

½

It has said what happened exactly means no holes barred !

Much sound but no output !

A brilliant advise to use life without none of addictions, All in all a perfect movie.

Runaway Train
½

Someone will never think adverse if said this was one of the greatest movies ever in all aspects ?

The Cassandra Crossing
½

The story still valid and in juxtaposed to what the USA is doing now with their neocolonialism. Very much similar and discrete things are happening today and this will give a glimpse of that.

Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation
½

Action and suspense at the highest degree. It's guaranteed for all type of viewers.

The Swarm
The Swarm(1978)

Whoever told ot not told the good things of this brilliant movie, it is ahead of it's time in all the departments.

Dr. Strangelove Or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb

So realistic and valid to contemporaneity times when despots in the penchant for nuclear arms. Ludicrous to the highest degree, thus effective in the message, it wants to convey. If it's shown worldwide in 2017 that sure will make a universal upheaval against nuclear arms.

The Day After

Who ever made movies with pomp and pageant and much elaboration about a nuclear holocaust, would be outdated and null when taken into perspective what this movie has depicted.

Avatar
Avatar(2009)

Exceptional animations and special effects that make this really enjoyable.
Above all gives a thunderous lesson that the humanity would remain at any cost.

Christine
Christine(1983)
½

as usual King's adaptations, this will blow you out of the seat.

I Am Not Your Negro

Quintessential and it sure will resonate till the human race would exist !

The Italian Job

This is well made means a brilliant technical work but utterly stupid and surreal, un-pragmatic theme.

Belle de Jour
½

This is sure not a errotic theme. It's the melancholia of a severe depressed mind and it's self study.

An Innocent Man

Any fascinating movie is vulnerable to go underrated ? The theme is pragmatic, portraits are brilliant especially by Tom but pathetic all gone un-noticed.

Nightcrawler
Nightcrawler(2014)

Predictable and making a hype that it does not deserves. But the leading character by Jake will resonate many years to come as it is a disparity of judgment not to win an Oscar !

Firefox
Firefox(1982)

It's never fall in to a pragmatic theme but in the perspective of technical aspect- brilliant ! Highly entertaining.

Blue Thunder
Blue Thunder(1983)

This is exiting scene movie but never a great one. The theme is surreal and unrealistic sine the 1st scene. Suffice to say in technical aspects it is much ahead of time.

The Seven-Ups
½

One of the most pragmatic, no nonsense thus no surreal crime/police stories. If not the best !

Kelly's Heroes
½

Very strange story, and the making of the movie is highly entertaining. It will keep you with a grin till it ends and what you want more from a good movie ?

Where Eagles Dare
½

You ought to feel suspense, excitement every moment since you sit to watch. 5 thumbs up !

A.I. Artificial Intelligence
½

This will blow you out of the world and will probably land in the same era of the movie's depiction. Probably the best of Spielberg ?

In Cold Blood
½

Well crafted and brilliance performed by all movie.

Cat on a Hot Tin Roof

Hypocritical when the crux of the theme is hidden, but suffice to describe as a classic in all aspects.

Paths of Glory

Brilliant film in all aspects and a small piece of history how France violated humanity in pre WW2.

Arabesque
Arabesque(1966)

So much fun offered even much better than a post 1900 comedies. You can not predict anything as the movie flots with the time with a change in every second. Suffice to say : Brilliant movie in it;s all rights.

Survivor(2015)
½

It's a facsimile copy of The Peacemaker.

Phenomenon
Phenomenon(1996)

Beautiful movie which all can enjoy.

½

Rather than tell how the movie looks, it's sad how hypocritically these so called critics species are. They let a really worst kind overrated and the vice versa to a brilliant one.

Cul-de-Sac
Cul-de-Sac(1966)

If someone looks for a real comedy, it's right here. It goes beyond that even. Means it transcends much higher meaning.

To Sir, With Love
½

Forget everything, sit down to watch and you are guaranteed to be blown away from the theme and the cast, nonetheless the performance by Poitier

Salò o le 120 giornate di Sodoma (Salò, or the 120 Days of Sodom)
½

Impossible to watch thus it would be much harder to gulp if those kind of practices really existed.
If so, this movie sure would inspire many to be refrained from those despicable inhuman acts. Suffice to say brilliant piece of film making.

Reversal of Fortune

One of the best intelligent tales ever to appear as a movie. Suffice to describe as an epic of triumph. Once more it has proved that the Oscars would be the epitome of disparity in perception of excellence. Else Ron Silver would have nominated and easily won the supporting actor category.
Impeccable qualities in every department of movie making.

Lolita
Lolita(1997)

No holds bared and it says how despicable a man could be with insurmountable clarity and sense. ! Wonder how this classic was evened by any awards and that ought to be the epitome of hypocrisy by so called critics.

The Offence
The Offence(1973)
½

It does not give the Lumet signature at all.

Eastwood delivers it and with thunder and bang. He rocks ! It's a bit macho as usual but has got depth in each single frame.

Classic piece of history in compression mode.
How wonderful a movie could be when it swallows you entirely to the end. This movie sure made inspiration to many would be investigative journalism and it sure made the world better place.

The Salesman (Forushande)
½

If the story would have been a bit dramatic and not stalled at sometimes, it would have been a 10 star !

The Postman Always Rings Twice
½

If someone says it's not up to the original they might be insane. As usual Oscars had evaded a very deserving case.

Gorky Park

So fascinating thriller that make us at the edge till the end.

Man on a Ledge
½

Good to have a nice pastime and nothing else !

The Sitter
The Sitter(2011)

One Hour Photo

If you looking for the beautiful aspect of life, here you are !

The Hunt (Jagten)

It's a pity that the deserving case always not win the prime crown. This movie is so brilliant that perhaps the Jury of the academic awards was flabbergasted?

Inside out of all American Italiano.

Much better and realistic to many movies made later by inspiration of this movie.

Night Falls on Manhattan

Excellent making in all departments typical ti Lumet movies. Brilliant portraits by Garcia and Dreyfuss.

Good movie and has suspense to the end that you will have no respite. But, the entire movie looks like a 50's production.

In the Cut
In the Cut(2003)
½

So surreal and over acting by the leading female role.

The Village
The Village(2004)
½

An epic (epitome) how typical asinine US cults psychosis exists, though the story obstinate. Hope the director had some inspiration from the Texas cults which FBI busted lately.

5 times thumbs up. Brilliant film making. But with humor and a bit ludicrousness, I guess.

The Client

Packed with humor and a bit ludicrousness, I guess.

Friday the 13th Part 2

Interesting but not exciting !

Last Passenger

Better we do not say arcane things like critics, but we are sent to a surreal state by the theme and the magnificent performance by the cast . It
s a pity that average US morons do to affect other Innocent persons lives thus the story is fictional the same like situation aught to be happening somewhere, perhaps daily ?

½

This is an epitome of a classic horror movie. There is no special effects, no asinine young morons lingering with knifes. Brilliant in all aspects !

Salva 's creation no doubt had some genuine spooky innovations which some other film maker used as benchmarks.

Confessions of a Dangerous Mind

Bizarre but not in excellent league.

It had it's moments but reluctantly I admit this movie would has lots of lapses in the script. Wish it would have been much more intense.

A strange sort of movie which it's presence never left out. I mean it. The way it's constructed, it has it's own characteristics as a bizarre movie, no doubt.

Critics says a lot but none of them not even talk about revelation of obnoxious cruelty in correction facilities which the movie is centred about.

21 Grams
21 Grams(2003)

Babel
Babel(2006)

Yes the Director knows how to tell a story better than any contemporary film director !

Eyes Wide Shut
½

it's a pity that Stanley is no more to have such masterpiece again. Wish the movie would have much shorten as it is dragging to long for lengthy unnecessary scenes.
Else, it's a mind blogger.

½

Well made to bring up a widely spoken social matter and it has it's impact.

Absolute Deception

frequently good ones are under-rated, bad movies are accoladed. what a disparity.

Omen III: The Final Conflict
½

It does not fit in to the trilogy in any way. just biblical trivia only.

The Dead Zone
½

Suffice to say fits in one of the three best King's adaptions.

Texas Killing Fields

No mater what have said by critics, this is a Hi-Octane thriller.

Shivers (They Came from Within) (The Parasite Murders)

Undeniably made and opened a trend of a particular cult of movies. But it's a completer waste of time.

It would have been better if I didn't watch this. Still after few days I cannot put 2 + 2
together - nothings add to me , simple as that.

Driving Miss Daisy

What else you need from a movie ?

Clockers
Clockers(1995)

The subject that Lee exploit no doubt all Americans will admit true and never would stop. What ever Lee's joints made so far will make us jaw drop where it is fairly rated or underrated.

Terribly underrated movie ! Mesmerizing portrait by Pacino keep us alive throughout the movie. Suffice to say technology finally met the classic comics with this movie and ever since the trend runs thanks to that effort.

We are in 2015 now and still this movie runs the championship as the best Prison break movie. Also, mesmerizing portrait by Eastwood has eluded the Oscars for him owing to usual nomination disparity - Pathetic !

Stand by Me
Stand by Me(1986)
½

It is walking tall and resonates ever since common to Kings stories.

½

A touch of human triumphant with the help of Matthew.

12 Years a Slave

I would say this is total Cinema and it's a pity that Chiwetel was the competitor with Matthew for the Oscars.

The Interview
½

Complete with blunt jokes and utterly senseless. Can not figure out what all this fuss about for a headless movie ? It is wise to say Hollywood did not insult Kim Jong Un but it insulted USA by c grade jokes.

Franco might get nominated for an academy award for a brilliant portrait, he deserves it !

The Emerald Forest
½

One of the best crafted movies in 80's. It's so emotional and griping that it resonates in my mind even now.

Brilliantly crafted and creative portraits by all the cast.

All the actors do well in this enjoyable movie nonetheless, much better crafted than some of the same genre.

Freelancers
Freelancers(2012)

Horrible horrible portrait of Jackson (50c). He should not have been used for this movie. I reckon USED is the proper term for this kind of blunders which will not have any discretion on the term of ACTING. Any movie will be better off without these type of people.

The movie ONLY just relay on power performances from Forest Whitaker and Robert De Niro.
Suffice to say complete waste of time.

Good effort by all cast and masterly crafted by Nichols.

Working Girl
Working Girl(1988)

Every thing is good - Amusement at it's best.

Battle: Los Angeles

Whoever say whatever, this is interesting to watch. Suffice to say much better than some other big budget sci-fi Flops.

Gun Shy
Gun Shy(2000)

Hell of a mess will be undisputed in this rank for a long time.

Zero Dark Thirty
½

Bigelow made a race against time and the end result couldn't be attribute to her if, we put her earlier work in to perspective. The final operation to capture OBL gives fictitious events to what actually had happened. From start to end it is evident the movie is a race against time.
It could have been a classic if, the movie would have been made few years later and at least with (somewhat near ) actual events that took place at Pakistan.

Face/Off
Face/Off(1997)

A never ending nightmare.

American Ninja 2: The Confrontation
½

These type of movies were made in Hollywood - phew !

The Darkest Hour

A theme let loose, graphics are brilliant though.

A Mighty Heart

Is it Mariane Pearl or Jolie ?
Utmost effort made by the director/screen writer to fit it in to actual events. No one can deny that. Chaotic events filmed in Pakistan epitomized this truth.

Timebomb
Timebomb(1991)

Certainly a Good thriller comparatively to much of new movies.

it a pity that O'Neal's magnificent performance had not been accolade.

Waist Deep
Waist Deep(2006)

½

Movie though tried tell the crux of the police corruption saga, does it have the expected entertainment - hope not !

Age of Heroes

The crux is the brilliant portraits of Dyer and Bean that entwine us to our emotions till the end.
Entertainment of thrill at max.

Dead Mine
Dead Mine(2012)

This has been made to look like a thriller though nothing has been planned properly. Most of the story is incoherent to each segment and it ends with a bizarre note.
Seems like a sum that will not be enumerated forever.
Another gem - Horrible portraits by the entire crew.

The Sting
The Sting(1973)

This is sure one of the best of best movies ever to produce and it's a privilege Some idiot top critics are lunatics though cynicism prevails (still) in their comments !

Rain Man(1988)

Mesmerizing movie, suffice to say a classic. But accolades were no sufficient for the portrait of Charlie Babbitt by Tom Cruise which is in par with the main role by Hoffman.
Many have a pity though !

Unstoppable
Unstoppable(2010)

Well crafted customary Tony Scott stuff. Above all highly entertaining.
There wasn't much to do for Washington's character though.

The Champ
The Champ(1979)

Take the good aspect of the story - leave the trivia out !
Thus the performances of the leading characters are awesome.

Last Tango in Paris

A poetic nightmare seen by a drug addict prick at it's high. The only plus point is the brilliant portrait of Brando.

Very interesting and magnificent graphics.

Platoon
Platoon(1986)
½

Exceptional performance by almost all the cast.

The Manson Family
½

I t seems the movie tried (at least) to depict the grotesque nature of histories most genetically mutated idiot's some of doings but, seems some people hate to admit the truth. Hence they criticize the movie instead the crimes done thus seems they try to condone Manson ?

Rosemary's Baby

Phew !
This classic horror movie will resonate till I see the last movie in my lie. Wonder why I could not watch it at least 20 years earlier than yesterday ?

Magnificent effort and success by the whole grew and a true classic !

R.I.P Swayze - your great portraits resonates for ever.

Night Crossing
½

If we want to see or hear an historic event that made human suffer so much, this is it and the movie gives comprehensive details thus the entertainment at it's best.

I wish the ratings and accolades should have been much higher as the movie really deserves it !

Unforgiven
Unforgiven(1992)
½

Is there any more left with Eastwood to give for the audience ? I assume nope - this is it !

The Hunted
The Hunted(1994)

I agree with some critics that Hollywood never used Lambert properly in a project which he could fit in to. It's a shame when lots of Baboons are around just ACTING in front of the camera and make no good for anybody or the industry.

Sharktopus
Sharktopus(2010)

Complete waste of time and money.

Bonnie and Clyde

For me this is one of the best ever made to perfect movie and it's cast does portrait it's characters 100% - so realistic which we expect from a movie.
suffice to say a movie made much much ahead of it's time !

Full Metal Jacket
½

One of the most power packed drama ever made and a customary approach by Kubrick.
The crux of the entire project is the portrait of Lee Ermey which is in par with any acknowledged best performances ever made by any Actor or the best ever we have seen.

Ghost
Ghost(1990)

want to see it again

Cool Hand Luke
½

So much things to admire.

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

So beautiful, simple as that !
Carrey at his best.

The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

This classics movies is for the hoi polloi - we still admire. Eli Wallac in his best and still his portrait resonates when we think about any movie.

Cidade de Deus (City of God)

I assume this movie gives such meaningful message that no other movie had offered in resent past. It could take either way by criminal minds brewing or by the law abiding society for their own survival. But the good aspect of the movie clearly could be adapted to many under develop countries.

Boogie Nights
½

It takes us to surreal mode though the events in this flick depicts an entire different notion of the porn industry back then. The crux of the matter is very powerful though it shows the uncertainty of human nature.

The Birds
The Birds(1963)

Superbly crafted classic.

Midnight Run
Midnight Run(1988)
½

want to see it again in memory of Denis.

Electric Dreams
½

Very asinine but has to attribute this movie for many many sequels lately.

12 Angry Men (Twelve Angry Men)

Never seen a true realistic, paradigmatic movie than this. A true classic !

April Fool's Day

Asinine but this obviously have led to so much of puerile sequels.

Black Dawn
Black Dawn(2005)

Worthless in every aspect of a movie; not even a "C" rate movie. Some flows in the script make it worst viz, the last sequence of taking the nuck in the chopper to the ocean, there is a augment one should actually leave the chopper when the time to detonation is less than 4 minutes. Even the chopper is not started !
Will Seagel ever stop doing these flops ?

Man on Fire
Man on Fire(2004)
½

The message gives about inhumanity by the movie will resonate for ages, thanks to magnificent portrait by Washington- Whatever he touch turns to Gold.

A Rage in Harlem
½

Mare incidents sans any excitement.

The Good Shepherd
½

This movies would have been assimilated to much more credits such as best directing and actor in a lead roll - this is must see as never seen subject.

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

No doubt superbly crafted but wonder how it missed the Academy nominations for the best Director ??

American History X

Yet Norton's' brilliance would resonate fanatical minds think twice ?

Scarface
Scarface(1983)

Indeed, it's not in the league of God Farther yet brilliantly castrated masterpiece.
Pacino portrait at it's best.

A Bronx Tale
A Bronx Tale(1993)

Classics of all classics !

The Man Who Wasn't There

Every detail in this classic is cohesive to each other that keep us spell bound.
Brilliance at it's best as usual Coen stuff.

I contemplate a whole lot of enthusiast might wonder why Oscar evaded Thronton for his magnificent portrait.

Drive

½

It is not that brilliant , only hype it had created.

Collateral
Collateral(2004)
½

keep us spellbound.

The Fourth Kind
½

Is it Real no ! not gullible to average hoi polloi. Too much technical explanations have made the movie difficult to gasp.

But Jovovich's performance is exceptional.

Safe House

No doubt all events are so predictable but, keep us jaw dropped till the end.

Spy Game
Spy Game(2001)

Spectacular events thus keep us spellbound. Magnificent portrait by Redford and Pitt.

Léon: The Professional

Mesmerizing performance by Portman, especially in her debut. But the whole theme appears surreal.
All in all, nice movie to enjoy.

½

Usual Tarantino script with clear begging and a pragmatic end.

Wag the Dog
Wag the Dog(1997)
½

Bizarre but have we got it from Levinson ?

Snatch
Snatch(2001)

Suffice to say, this is one of the best ever movies which would make you laugh, make you bewailed and, most of all highly enjoyable.

25th Hour
25th Hour(2003)
½

This classic from Lee ought to make a lasting physiological imprint.

Once Upon a Time in America

Certainly, this is a supreme masterpiece.

Falling Down
Falling Down(1993)

Probably, Falling Down is a topmost film which has discerned reality of American/Western hoi polloi.

Looking in to the story with a south Asian perspective, most of its problems emulated has tendency to an end with a crash landing. Poignant meltdown of human psychology due to Ignorance of basic human values, such as forgiveness in marriages has been portrayed by Douglas exceptionally. This phenomena been tested in the story with the character of Duvall and has a clear cut results with a lasting marriage of him means, acceptance and coherence to others attitudes.

Therefore, this film will be always an eye opener and stimulation for the oriental culture.

GoodFellas
GoodFellas(1990)

Tumultuous nature of the American gangstersâ(TM) been prorated better than any other Scorsese projects.

Almost all the cast had done their part awesomely.
A true masterpiece.

One False Move

No doubt this is one of the best ever pragmatic film noir ever made.

Inside Man
Inside Man(2006)
½

Cornucopia of sheer excitement as usual Spike Lee's joints'

The Howling
The Howling(1981)

Probably, The turning point of classic horror movies

I watched this classic as a schoolboy in 1982 it and all these years till yesterday, the werewolf transformation and the movie was resonating in my mind. I was lucky to have the movie found again yesterday and was dying to watch it.

Aha... I certainly think this was the 1st movie that had such great special effects used and surely the turning point of classic horror.
Since this epic was released I have not seen any classic horror movies other than Omen.

Disturbing Behavior

It's like a sonorous chant at a medieval church, and nothing but monotonous

Don't Look Now

Only expose the spookiness of Venice but dramatically slack.

Frantic
Frantic(1988)

What a movie ! Another classic from the legend. Should have had lot more accolade !
Another Brilliant performance by Ford.

The Talented Mr. Ripley
½

Super movie with class and depth excellent performance by the led cast.

Buried
Buried(2010)
½

could it be possible ?

Don't Say a Word

Nothing new but interesting.

The Shining
The Shining(1980)
½

It's not a mere ghost story never the less, Kubrick might have/might not have tried to emphasize the volatile human nature of giving up under extreme situations. Ending with a portrait shown of 1921, July 4th ball had made the entire script estrange from main theme probably, and would not have made the puzzle a whole lot of audience complaining.

Nicholson is in his brilliance as the disturbed character, moreover the others done their part well.

Splice
Splice(2010)
½

The script has its serious flows that does wear off continuously and never heading where it is intended to.

Memento
Memento(2000)
½

After watching the movie three or more times, it is no more than a labyrinth !

Least to say not falling in to the league of Polanski's tenant like dark noir.

Mulholland Drive
½

Beautiful dark mystery.

Rest Stop
Rest Stop(2006)

A Complete waste of time !
No par with the other âC ârated mimicked movies.

Fight Club
Fight Club(1999)

Superb effort to reveal human nature.

What Lies Beneath
½

Much predictable and falling towards most B rated. Robert should have taken a big chunk out of the script that would have made this a bit interesting.

Undisputed
Undisputed(2002)
½

Least to say the script is so lame and so much predictive â" nothing interesting. But Hill has his foot print left throughout the movie and he had managed to put it to the upper B class without a doubt.

Paycheck
Paycheck(2003)

Watchable movie but there are serious flows in the sequence.

Blow Out
Blow Out(1981)
½

De Palma did it way back in 81. He has made himself the master of paranoia. The film closely knit around itâ(TM)s script and Suffice to say, itâ(TM)s brilliant.

Natural Born Killers

Stone though had the gumption to mimic Stanley Kubrick, this is a flop in the first degree.
Sure the visual gimmicks and technical aspects had overcome the movie.

L.A. Confidential

Suffice to describe this as masterpiece for the ages.
The point to pander was why the main three mail rolls id not captured the Academyâ(TM)s attention for any accolade.

Days of Thunder

Not that inspirational nonetheless, entertaining.

Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps

Douglas sure makes a frantic effort to be as usual Douglas - he shouldn't have accepted to portrait the sequel and, I am so sad to say that very pathetic move by Stone to make this movie.

Dog Day Afternoon

It is not just brilliant -opulent !
Pacino had just proved he would be the driving force to come. All the cast had their parts portrayed brilliantly.

Badlands
Badlands(1974)

Amazingly beautiful, as made in conjunction with such rural north landscapes thus customary Malick masterpiece.

He splendidly has depicted psychotic children of that 50â(TM)s -60â(TM)s and I hope I am not mistaken if I would state this was twilight of all other American crime movies which followed.

To the end the story line is poetic and the rhythmic.

Wall Street
Wall Street(1987)

This movie sure makes a deep impact customary to Oliver stone movies.

RocknRolla
RocknRolla(2008)
½

Typical Guy Rirtchie movie.
English flavor really rocks.

The Town
The Town(2010)

Ben Affleck does not fit in to the lead role as he lacks of a thugâ(TM)s psyche. But, immaculate portrait by Jeremy Renner.
All in all, a good movie to watch.

The French Connection

It was said the movie had the first ever high profile speed chase and, it was indeed !
Magnificent cinematography and it was in 1970â(TM)s filming with that technology.

Marathon Man
Marathon Man(1976)

I hope I am not wrong if I would say - the best Drama classic ever to be made ?

Black Sunday
Black Sunday(1977)

Superbly crafted master peace to the end !

Scarecrow
Scarecrow(1973)

Brilliant performances by Hackman and Pacino. But the script lack consistency of a timeless classic.
Yet very touching.

Straw Dogs
Straw Dogs(2011)

Shame that to name as remake of l 1971classic.
Selection of the cast is horrible thus they just move in front of the camera rather acting.
Should be classified the worst eve movie.

One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest

Watched this epic movie as a schoolboy way back in 1980 and the notion I had; absolute funny.

After all these years I was dying to see it again as a matured viewer â" got the chance yesterday and I couldnâ(TM)t resist the feeling why I did not do it all these years.

Conclusion â" Movie enthusiast is not complete if not have seen this masterpiece.

The Conversation

Typical Coppolaâ(TM)s movie. Rather should be added to weirdest movie list.

A Clockwork Orange

Weirdest movie ever made yet, A classic master peace !
Extraordinary performance by the entire cast. Very atypical to see a collective effort like this.
Undoubtedly, one of the 10 best ever movies.

Mean Streets
Mean Streets(1973)

Classic !
Start of an era of pillars.

Sleeping with the Enemy

Main cast has done their part so brilliantly and cannot figure out why neither one was nominated for any award.
