It may not be the best teen comedy, it's actually not even the best comedy of the 80's, but that still doesn't change the fact that I really enjoy this movie. Fast Times at Ridgemont High is a movie that not everyone can get into, the movie can be a bit crude at times, but I still think the movie is enjoyable and very memorable. Cameron Crowe wrote the script for this film and I think he did a great job; he supplied the film with great characters, witty dialogue and memorable quotes. I'm a huge fan of Cameron Crowe and I thought he did an amazing writing and directing films, like Say Anything, Almost Famous and Jerry Maguire. When it comes to writing I think Fast Times at Ridgemont High is Cameron Crowe's second best movie, Almost Famous will always be his best and it will always be my favorite. Anyways, getting back to Fast Times at Ridgemont High, I thought the film had really solid direction and I really liked how the film captured teenagers in the 1980's. Sean Penn's performance as Jeff Spicoli is probably the most iconic role in this movie and yeah it should be because Seam Penn plays a really good part in this movie. When it came to the characters I didn't find Jeff Spicoli the best character, I actually found the characters Brad and Stacy Hamilton the more enjoyable characters. I know some people might not think so, but I actually found those two the nicer characters in the movie and they both portrayed the brother and sister role very well, they actually seemed like a real brother and sister. I know a lot of people compare this movie to The Breakfast Club and Ferris Bueller's Day Off because these are the three biggest teen comedies of the 80's. Personally I think, The Breakfast Club is the better movie of the three because of John Hughes' smart writing and wonderful direction, but I think Fast Times at Ridgemont High takes a close second. I enjoy everything that's in this movie, I enjoy the music, I enjoy the humor, I enjoy the characters and I enjoy the good writing. I don't think everyone would like this movie, but I think everyone can enjoy at least one thing in this movie. I obviously enjoy everything in this movie and that's why I love watching it.
Blackfish is a documentary that not only had me interested from start to finish, but it also changed the way I look at killer whales now. Blackfish is a documentary about a whale named Tilikum, who actually took the life of several people while he was performing at a sea park. The documentary talks about how they captured Tilikum and made him be a performer at their sea park and then the film goes into detail how Tilikum took the lives of a few people. This documentary is definitely not easy to watch because it does get aggressive and it does show some disturbing footage as well. I'm usually not into documentaries and I'm especially not into documentaries about animals, but when I heard about this movie I had to give it a watch and honestly I'm glad I did. This movie, Blackfish not only had an interesting topic, but the film also teaches you something's about animal cruelty and about marine biology. I think some people might be disturbed when watching this film because of its subject matter, but I would still recommend this documentary to people. Blackfish shows us what animals could really do and it shows us that sea parks aren't good things to have because not only animals get hurt, but people too. So, if you're into documentaries, then check this movie out.

Pretty much one of my all time favorite movies. First thing it has Russell Crowe who is my favorite actor, next it has incredible action scenes and finally it has amazing acting performances and not just by Russell Crowe, but also Joaquin Phoenix and Djimon Hounsou.
Probably one of the all time greatest movies ever made! I can't think of a single thing that is wrong with this movie, Gone With The Wind is pretty much a perfect movie. Clark Gable is an amazing actor and his role in Gone With The Wind is just outstanding. So of course Gone With The Wind is a classic, but it's also classified is a masterpiece.
