A Beautiful Mind 2001,  PG-13)
A Beautiful Mind
A Beautiful Mind is a beautiful film! There's not much to be said of it really.

The story is excellent, spanning over a period of many years in the life of mentally ill, John Nash, played by Russell Crowe. The plot with the reality and hallucination sequences was extremely affective, and well done. Also, powerful and touching.

The acting is fantastic, both leading and supporting roles alike. Supporting actors Ed Harris, Paul Bettany, Judd Hirsch, and Josh Lucas really give strong performances. Russell Crowe received an Oscar nomination...he gives a great performance, but it was the beautiful and stunning Jennifer Connelly who makes this film. Her performance as Nash's wife, Alicia, is brilliant...one of my favorite supporting performances. She's one of my favorite actresses. She definitely deserved her Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor.

Excellent musical score by James Horner!

I think one of the things I liked most about the film is the emotion. Parts of the story are so sad, tragic even. I really felt for the characters and that made all the difference. There are some powerful and emotional scenes in this film.

Even though this film "stole" Best Picture from LotR: The Fellowship of Ring, this is still an excellent, near perfect film. Ron Howard brilliantly directed this movie, and it will most likely remain his very best. Everything about it is excellent...I love this film! I completely recommend this!

Atonement
Simply stunning. One of the most beautiful films I have ever seen. A fantastic romance-epic.

Avatar 2009,  PG-13)
Avatar
For sure one of the best action/sci-fi movies ever. It's so emotionally engaging, so mindbogglingly(?) epic, nothing compares to the epic awesomeness of this film. As I'm sure you can tell, I love this movie.
There are way to many people that simply "like" this movie and I don't get how that's possible. It's great in almost every way. Second, just becuase a film has similar theme and plot element as other films (Pocahantas, Dances With Wolves), does not mean it's automatically unoriginal? I see the similarities between the films, but it doesn't bother me. Why? Because this is a brilliant film. So what if it is, Avatar has created it's own little world when it comes to film. Nothing compares to the visual effects, graphics, and action. I don't think people realize that.
The best film of 2009....by far. I would have loved to it win Best Picture. I really enjoyed The Hurt Locker, but when it was done, it was done. I felt almost nothing when it was over. Avatar gave me small emotional doses of what I experienced during the LOTR Trilogy. But I guess films like Avatar aren't Oscar material.
Also, I love Zoe Saldana's performance as Neytiri. The equivalent of Andy Serkis' Smeagol performance!
Loved every second of this film!

Excellent, excellent, excellent!

In the same league as Saving Private Ryan, it's that good. BHD is not only one of my favorite war films, but one of my favorite films period!

Certainly not as good as the other two in the trilogy, but this is still a really good action thriller in its own right. Great locations and awesome fighting sequences.

Bruce Almighty 2003,  PG-13)

A good comedy movie! Jim Carrey and Jennifer Aniston are really nice here, and the casting of Morgan Freeman as God was perfect!

Casino Royale
A total surprise! Not only is this a great Bond movie, it may very weel be the best Bond movie. Truly, a great film!

Catch Me If You Can 2002,  PG-13)
Catch Me If You Can
This film is so fun and nothing but a complete joy to watch. It's not your typical Spielberg movie, but it's definitely one of the most enjoyable. The cast, story, humor, cinematography, pace, flow, emotion.....it was all great! I'm thrilled to have this as part of my personal collection.

The performances were great all across the board. I'm not a big Leo fan, but I really enjoyed his performance here. He portrayed a wide variety of emotions and feelings throughout the film and I thought that he brilliantly executed each persona nicely. Tom Hanks is great, but is he ever anything less? Christopher Walken gives a highly overlooked performance as Abagnale Sr. He adds a tragic element to the story and gives the film a level of emotion that it easily could have forgotten. He gives a heart wrenching performance for which he recieved an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actor. It was also nice seeing Jennifer Garner in her tiny role. I had no idea she was in the film.

Of course, I can't forget my Amy Adams. This was the first major role for Amy Adams, and what a performance it was. She really holds her own against actors like Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hanks. One of my favorite scenes in the entire film is the Hospital scene where we first meet her character, Brenda. She completely OWNS the stage. In her first 4-5 minutes on camera, she is able to make a huge impression on the audience. Her smiles, grins, and southern accent totally drew me in; it really is a brilliant performance. Yes, she is my favorite actress, but I really do think she gives a stellar peformance in this scene, and in all of her scenes, as well. She, like Christopher Walken, adds a level of emotion the film easily would have lacked.

The cinematography was good as well. As were the costumes. The 1960's appearance was very appealing.

Based of the true story of young Frank Abagnale Jr., Spielberg takes you on a journey that can't be forgotten. It is so fun and irresistable in every way. Great story, great cast, great suspense, great film. I recommend this excellent film to anyone that in for a fun ride!

Clash of the Titans 2010,  PG-13)
Clash of the Titans
Very flawed, but the special effects were great. Also, casting Liam Neeson and Ralph Fiennes as important characters was a great choice. A decent film.
21
Crash 2004,  R)
Crash
A great movie! The thing that really stands out about this film is the message and how it's portrayed in a way that helps the audience relate to it in a deep and personal way. Each character is so raw, real, and flawed that the audience is able to see themselves as the characters, rather than the actors; this is one of the reasons why this film is so powerful and affective. I also love the way this film doesn't sugar coat the issues, nor does it beat around the bush. It gets right to the core of rascism in our culture and who we really are as people. The cast is just brilliant. Sandra Bullock, Matt Dillon, and Don Cheadle really let go of themselves here. Great performances all the way around.

This is one of the most touching and powerful films I have ever seen. Excellent! I definitely recommend it.

In my opinion, the best film of 2008! No doubt.

The Devil Wears Prada 2006,  PG-13)
The Devil Wears Prada
I'm pretty confident that I'm one of the only guys in the world that seriously likes this film. I think it's more than just a chick-flick; it serves, also, as a film about life in general. Great performances by Meryl Streep and Anne Hathaway. Solid performances by the supporting actors Stanley Tucci and Emily Blunt as well. I really love this film!
28
District 9 2009,  R)
District 9
This film really surprised me. I had high expectations, but I did not know this would be great. This film is brilliant!

The thing that caught my attention right away was the documentary sections. I did not think it could be so appealing, but the mockumentary strategy really sets this film apart from every other lame alien movie. It makes the entire story feel so real. Brilliant filmaking! For a relatively low budget, indie film, I was surprised by how great the special effects were. The action scenes were awesome, as were the aliens. I also really liked the gory parts of the film, it works. I was also very surprised by the acting, particularly by first time actor, Sharlto Copley. He gives a very strong and emotional performance that really carried the film and added a great level of emotion and intensity to the film.

This is an absolutely fantastic movie. Right alongside Avatar as one of the best films of 2009!

Doubt 2008,  PG-13)
Doubt
Based on a play, also entitled "Doubt," the film unfolds much like a piece of theater would with the dialogue and actors all in the spotlight. It's in this way that Doubt ultimately succeeds. The performances are all fantastic. Meryl Streep is brilliant in the lead role, while Philip Seymour Hoffman owns as the Priest and Amy Adams shines in a more reserved role; throughout the film, I found myself anxious for the next scene where the 3 would be together because they had great chemistry. Also Viola Davis delivers a great performance, she has only one scene in the film but makes it count by stealing it from the great Meryl Streep. All 4 garnered Oscar nominations. The film also benefits from a really good screenplay. It is never too obvious in delivering its themes and topics, but the dialogue and drama is enthralling nonetheless.

Troy 2004,  R)

Alexander 2004,  R)
Alexander
I wish I could say I was able to overlook the film's many flaws and say that it's a half decent film, but that would be a lie. Is this film really that bad? Sadly, and unfortunately, yes. This is a bad film; the pacing is horrible, the editing is atrocious, the performances are overly dramatic, the battle sequences are mostly mindless, it's unnecessarily gory, the story itself is unengaging, the direction is confused, and as far as historical biopics go this isn't one that all that accurate. All of these things combined with ambition could not save this film which is very sad and disappointing. The reason this film was so disappointing is because I believe this ensemble could have created THE biopic of Alexander the Great, instead we are left with this mess that makes us question the minds of those involved. I could go on for much longer about his film...

Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer 2007,  PG)
Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer
I like this film, but I will admit that it's not of the highest quality. The story and acting are weak in this film. It's entertaining, but that's about it. I still love Fanastic Four, but this was unnecesarily bad. I would love a third one, but only if it's more like the first one.
38
The Family Man 2000,  PG-13)
39
Finding Nemo 2003,  G)
Finding Nemo
A great film! Only Pixar could take a story about 3 fish and turn it into a masterful, timeless film.

Finding Nemo is the film that really showed the world what they were made of. They showed that they could make an animated film that could compare to live-action movies.

Ellen DeGeneres is PERFECT as Dory. The best voice-over performance I have seen. She created one of the most memorable characters in recent years.

Also, the script of this film is.....legit. There were times I was laughing histerically at some of the things that were being said.

Nemo is great. Watch it!
