Yeah, that's a great one. It has the perfect blend of drama and humor. I hear Mark Wahlberg wants to make a sequel but I'm not quite sure I want to see that even though I love The Fighter.

I loved The Amazing Spider-Man 2! I agree that it is vastly underappreciated. I was blown away when I first saw it. And blown away again when I saw it for the second time. Dane DeHaan is one of my favorite actors so I really enjoyed seeing him as Harry Osborne. Speaking of vastly underappreciated movies, I see that Lassie is your #2! Lassie is a great movie.

This is at least what I think but I think you would really enjoy more when your older because at that time you know you start to appreciate films more but still I watched it when I was younger and loved it so much so I think it wouldn't really matter what age your at but I think adults can appreciate it more.

Hey, no worries, Wade.

Nope, not a film major. I live in a small town in Australia, where there's not much to do. Usually it's very wet (raining right now), so I watch movies. However, I do have quite a passion for them. I assume I'm older than you, that's how I've seen so many. :)

Shoot 'Em Up isn't for everybody. A lot of over-the-top action that suits my taste perfectly. :)

The Matrix was pretty good! Excellent action scenes and a very interesting concept that makes a lot of overdone tropes feel fresh and original. I don't plan on watching Reloaded and Revolutions, as I've heard they do not live up to any kind of hype. Have you seen them?

Speaking of making a lot of overdone tropes feel fresh and original, what did you think of The Lego Movie? :)

Ooh, you saw Enemy! Would you recommend it? I loved Prinsoners. :)

A Hard Days Night is in my Top 10,but I could probably put it in my Top 5,I love it so much.Not only is it really funny and entertaining,the visual style of the movie is full of so much energy that you can't help but having a great time watching it.I also think that the film is a social commentary on the changing times of the 60's.Plus The Beatles are the greatest band ever,so the music is great.Man I love that movie.

I'm looking forward to Interstellar as well. Nolan is one of my favorite directors and I've been anticipating the release of this movie since it was announced.

I think Monty Python is hilarious. I watched it a few months ago and loved it. I hope you enjoy it!

I was hoping to see The Fault in Our Stars before it left theaters as it is one of my favorite books, but that didn't happen. I'm also looking forward to Guardians of the Galaxy, although I am getting a bit sick of seeing a trailer for that movie at every movie I go to. And I'm looking forward to the release of Mockingjay: Part 1 in November.

Well to sum up the movie, I think every scene is from a filmmaking perspective absolutely fantastic. Acting is great and has a very nice scorsese pace. And at first I hated the ending, but actually understood it later, which made it better and interresting.

I noticed ASM 2 on your list, and am VERY interresting to know why it is so high. I really disliked the film, so would like to know your take

Im glad you like ASM 2 but I really disliked it. What I did like was the beginning (not the annoying prologue) where spiderman is heroing around. Basically everytime spidey was on the screen was very enjoyable. Unfortunately that didn't happen that often instead showing Peter parker in a boring plot. Andrew garfield was great but I didn't quite believe as a teenager this time.
The villians were awful. Omg rhino was lame and so childish. Electro was better but also felt one dimensional. A really lame excuse to become mad at spidey. They felt like the very typical one dimensional villians back in the very old days of comic books. Im sorry but goblins actor was the worst. Everytime he opened his mouth i wanted to hit him in the face
dialogue was pretty bad and chessy, unstabile tone, and some logic fails with the plot. Relationship between Peter and gwen was good, though brought down as said with the dialogue. Gwen death was handled well and the best thing about the movie
but om glad you liked it. It would be boring if we all had the same taste

No problem, Wade! Thanks for checking out my videos. Yeah, 127 Hours is really graphic. It shows quick shots of nerves getting cut, and that's what stuck with me. Overall, it's a really enthralling film with Danny Boyle stamped on it.

I've actually started on a Quentin Tarantino tribute that's going really well. I'm waiting for Interstellar to come out to do a Christopher Nolan tribute. Also doing: Stanley Kubrick, Martin Scorsese, The Coen Bros., and more!

One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest is very good, lots of good performances in that one. I also haven't seen the other three you mentioned all the way through, although I've seen parts of Apocalypse and TWBB.

I've heard mixed reviews of all three though, basically saying they're either fantastic, or really slow and boring, so I don't know who to believe!

I agree with you about the production design. The overall look was pretty impressive.

There are actually a lot that I'm looking forward to: The Skeleton Twins, Gone Girl, The Judge, This Is Where I Leave You, Interstellar, Rosewater, Big Hero 6, Horrible Bosses 2, and The Interview are all some that I'm sure I'll go see. What about you?

I see. Well I will definitely have to check out the new TMNT movie when it comes out. I did enjoy the 90's TMNT.

I love film scores! I will definitely have to give that a listen. One more thing about the movie Sinister: the music was really good. A bit repetitive, but definitely not in a bad way. It suited the movie very well.

What would you say your favorite score is at this time?

I think if I were to do a top 10 for each, in no particular order, I'd go with...

Actors: Sam Rockwell, Bill Hader, Tom Hanks, Steve Carell, Ben Stiller, Bryan Cranston, Christopher Walken, Simon Pegg, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Steve Buscemi.

Actresses: Anne Hathaway, Amy Adams, Tina Fey, Sigourney Weaver, Emma Stone, Jennifer Lawrence, Rooney Mara, Kristen Bell, Julianne Moore, and Scarlett Johansson.

Kind of like you were saying, those are just some of the people I think are generally delivering either with impressive versatility, or are consistently great at one thing. I also seem to prefer more modern actors, and especially comedic actors who can add a sense of drama/realism to their performances, because I think that it has a tendency to be more impactful that way than from more dramatic actors (though not always).

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 score is probably my personal favorite at the moment. It's one of the only scores where I like every single song, not just select moments or themes. In addition to that I appreciate how much it improved upon the first film's score. I also love the scores for Inception, The Dark Knight Rises, and Her. Those would probably be my favorites. Hans is the best, as you can see by my profile picture of him just lounging.

The Grand Budapest Hotel was a really good movie, at least in my opinion. It was really quirky and the dialogue was very entertaining. I need to watch it one more time to fully grasp the story but it's one that I can't wait to see again!

What are some new movies you have been watching?

It's always a pleasant surprise when you rewatch something and it's better the second time. That's sort of how I was with Frozen last year too. The first time I thought it was just alright, but when I saw it again, I enjoyed it more (although I don't think it deserves a lot of the hype it gets). The worst though is when you rewatch something and it's not as good as you thought the first time haha

Okay, let's take TWBB! Let's start off with something simple to learn where we stand on other things. How do you think Daniel felt about his son H.W. over the course of the film? Do you think he ever truly loved him, or that he gradually lost interest in him after the accident that deafened him?

Okay, here're my thoughts. The film as a whole is Daniel's search for a family. Thus the title "There Will Be Blood" representing the blood line of the Plainview family, rather than any violent acts. He did really love his son, because he planned to carry on the blood line. When he went deaf, his chances of carrying on the family business decrease substantially, so he loses interest in him. And when H.W. becomes his competitor, he is officially dead to Daniel. This desire for family also explains how closely he bonds with the man pretending to be his brother, and how offended he is to find out he is a fraud. Thoughts on this?

Daniel could have such a strong desire for a family because his father had an affair, and thusly he never had a healthy "normal" family.

Another important thing to note is the final scene. Daniel doesn't resort to violence towards Eli until he says "Daniel, we're brothers." I think it's important to note that the only two people Daniel murders during the run time both falsely claim to be his brother.

Yeah,Flags of Our Fathers is really good.The story was really great and the characters were as well.The biggest problem I have with it is that for some reason,they decided to start telling the story diffently in the third act.I would recommend it,but I would recommend its companion piece,Letters from Iwo Jima way more.Its way more emotional,and actually manages to make you root for the Japanese.

I love Eastwood as a Director.He's probably the best story-teller in Hollywood.Have you seen any of his films and what do you think of him?

regarding boyhood:
Taken from my comment on TheHonestFilmFan's page.

This movie was so wonderful in my opinion. First and foremost because it really has a good narrative. It followed you through the story hand in hand, which seemed like a wonderful adventure. I was really invested in the several characters. Think mom and dad were really interesting and loved their development from start to finish. Even the small characters was a lot interesting too. You could refelct on mason's life when he was still a kid. Also like especially the themes. Such what roles we play in life and finding our identity. And then of course the best theme of time. Time, and our interaction with time, and the way in which we all eventually become overwhelmed by it

Also have something negative. My biggest problem is ending was so dragged out.

There are lot of other good stuff in the movie - and some minor negative ones - but those I mentioned were clearly the best/worst.

I'm a big fan of the MCU films.Most of them are pretty generic and predictable,but I can forgive that because I'm finally seeing these characters on the big-screen.

I really liked The Winter Soldier.It felt like Marvel actually put a lot of effort in it to make it a great film,and I really liked how it had some-what of a commentary on American politics,something I never would have expected from a film like this.My favorite is still The Avengers though,it just satisfied my inner-geek's every need :D

Yeah I think Inside Out could be very cool.

I have read the Pixar theory, as well as the theory about Andy's parents in the Toy Story franchise from the same guy, and don't really care for them. They're interesting theories, but they tend to gloss over moments in the movies that don't quite gel with the theory or make pretty major assumptions in logic. I think my biggest problem is how people say these theories "prove" that everything's connected and that it "will blow your mind" when there is nothing to prove or disprove either theory. What are your thoughts on the Pixar theory? Or the one on Andy's parents, if you've read that one too?

I completely agree. I think Pixar even came out and said the reason Andy's dad isn't present is because it was hard to animate real humans and he wasn't important enough to the story to warrant his being there. Interesting theories, but I wish people would take things at face value sometimes haha

Well, since the extended versions of The Lord of the Rings-trilogy comes in at about 12hrs in length, I find it difficult to watch those often. You need to plan it days ahead if you're gonna watch them.
And I don't really rewatch my other favorite films that often either. I usually just watch movies that I haven't seen yet to expand my Flickchart list. However if I find an urge to rewatch certain film, then I will rewatch it.
Thinking about rewatching GoodFellas, Inception and

Thank you for your reply to my earlier question(s) about your favorite film and your top ten. I asked this question to various people because I've battled with replacing my #1 film for over a year now. I saw Casablanca for the first time in 1999 I think. It left a profound impression on me. It soon became my favorite film as I would routinely revisit it. So, for roughly 15 years, Casablanca has been my favorite film. I've had some really good times with it as well. I first saw it when I was in the military. I just relate to so much of the film. Oddly enough, I relate to both Victor Laszlo AND Rick Blaine!! Victor for the military lifestyle that requires you to be away from the love of your life, and Rick for the duality of choosing between someone you love and doing the right thing. So many themes strike all the right chords with me.

Fast-forward the time to 2013. I saw Vertigo for the first time ever. It blew me away more than any film I had ever seen. Everything about it was brilliant. And the more I watched it, I began to develop an obsession for it. I've never watched a film so many times in such a short span. I watched Vertigo more than ten times in a month. It just drew me in. I wanted to put it as my #1 film, but I didn't want to make a decision based on a knee-jerk reaction. So, I gave it time to see if my affinity for it would lessen. I even forced myself to stop watching it so much. Well, a few weeks ago, I showed it to some friends and family. I discovered that my affection for this film hadn't changed a bit. So now comes the hard part. I almost feel like I'm cheating on Casablanca if I put Vertigo #1. To answer my own question, I'm very loyal to my favorite film of all time. But I think the time has come for me to be true to my chart and put Vertigo at #1.

I've seen Casablanca recently and I still love it as much as I did when I first watched it. But I think I enjoy Vertigo from start to finish a little more than I love Casablanca from start to finish.

I know I'm probably taking this way too serious, but watching movies is one of my favorite pass times. What do you think? Have you ever had this dilemma?

I saw the film again today and it was so much better this time. Never before have a film exceeded my first viewing of a film with that margin. The film went from a great film to one of the best films I've ever seen after just one additional viewing.

I live in Sweden. Not only do I live in Sweden, but I also live in a town with around 5000 inhabitants - that lies in Sweden; there's only one screen here and as you probably can guess, it's not an IMAX-screen. I don't even know if there's a single IMAX-screen in Sweden to be honest.......

Personally, I was a little disappointed, but maybe my expectations were just too high. I thought the visuals were spectacular and most of the acting was good, but the story fell apart for me near the end. I am glad I saw it in IMAX though; that was quite a cinematic experience! What were your thoughts on it?

I think that Interstellar is the only movie I've seen in IMAX haha so I can't really say for sure. I don't think it'll have a difference on regular theaters for me.

Is Interstellar your favorite movie of 2014 (at least so far)?

Both of them were great though I preferred Rear Window. Rear Window was just more my kind of film. It was like 12 Angry Men blended with a murder mystery. The dialogue was fantastic and it really surprised me how good the dialogue was! North By Northwest was fantastic aswell, though it didn't have that effect that Rear Window had on me. I think these two are the best Hitchcock films (even though I haven't seen The Birds, Strangers on a Train or Dial M for Murder yet). I think Vertigo is the weakest of the four Hitchcock films I've seen...

Yeah Birdman was a powerhouse in every way: acting, cinematography, score, etc.

I had also heard good things about Snowpiercer, so when it came on Netflix a few weeks ago I figured I'd check it out and see what was so great. I think what impressed me the most was how simple it was, while also being complex, if that makes sense. It grabbed me early on and didn't let go. It's tough to explain though without giving anything away, because, like Interstellar, I think it would probably be more fun if you had no idea what fun twists and turns were coming.

*****Spoilers for The Shining!*****

I think the ending of The Shining either meant that Jack was a reincarnation of a former hotel employee (just like the Grady who murdered his family had the same name as the ghost butler dude),oooooorrrrrrr....Jack became part of the hotel when he died.

*****Spoilers End*****

As for Django,I'm not really sure what I thought of it.It didn't really seem like the story went from A to B and flowed really smooth.I thought it felt like there was about 90 minutes of actual story and a lot of filler.But that filler was pretty dope.That shootout...damn.

I don't think you seeing Interstellar first matters. I saw John Wick the day before, and I still liked Interstallar much better. I think the trailer is deceiving to how much action would be in the film. They also showed all the good parts, which really annoys me.

Loved Interstellar, but I found it flawed. Predictable at times (Mann, the ghost) imagery reminiscent of Inception (when I had imagined a grander scale), and odd speeches about love. The very ending really annoyed me too. The choice not to ask about a character (know what I mean?), really annoyed me! I also found Casey Affleck to be completwy wasted in his role.

I loved McConaughey, the visuals, the interesting concepts, and that damn docking station scene! One of my favourite scenes of the year. I also didn't mind the robot, despite it being jarring initially.

I enjoyed the film as a whole,but I'll be completely honest with you,and I'm personally embarrassed and disgusted with myself for doing this,but I fell asleep a few times during the movie.Yeah....
It wasn't that it was boring or anything,but I was really tired when I got to the theater and when they were talking about all the complicated space stuff,I just zonked out.

So most of the time I had no idea what was going on,and I kinda quite paying attention since I knew it was a very carefully constructed film that demanded my attention.

I think I got most of it though,the score was flippin' awesome and I thought that one part towards the end was pretty mind-blowing.I'm going to agree with most people and say I wish it would've ended 10 minutes sooner,but I still enjoyed it as a whole,and I'm sure any problems I had with it can be solved by rewatching it and ACTUALLY STAYING AWAKE!!!! :D

Yeah,I completely agree with you.The ending didn't give me that emotional punch that I needed,but I did get it about 10 minutes before,another reason I wish they would have cut out that ending!

***Interstellar Spoilers***
There was something interesting I read afterwards about the end though.Doesn't someone say something like "the last thing you see before you die is your children" or something to that effect? It could be that Cooper did die in space,and the actual,real ending is Anne Hathaway's character starting the new human race on the planet she landed on.Or maybe I've just seen Inception too many times and can't trust Nolan to give me a real ending! :D

I do agree that they should have cut out the last ten minutes of Interstellar. It would have been so much better if it ended with Cooper drifting off out of Gargantua, after we figure out that he was the one that touched Brandt.

3.The Prestige
4.Batman Begins
5.The Dark Knight Rises
6.Interstellar

I'm a big fan of all his movies,he might be my favorite working director.The only reason Interstellar is last is because it's the one I've seen least and paid the least attention to,I'm sure it will go way up when I watch it again.And I'm psyched to see Memento,I gotta do that soon.

7.Killers Kiss

The top six are excellent films,I would highly recommend all of them,and Killers Kiss...well,it's okay,but Kubrick was still figuring things out while he was making it,and it's not very good.

Elf, Die Hard, The Santa Clause, Christmas Vacation, Love Actually, and Kiss Kiss Bang Bang are some of my favorite Christmas movies, although some of them probably barely count.

Yeah I don't know why people hate on Shutter Island so much. Maybe it's just because it's not "typical" Scorcese in terms of crime, drugs, and stuff? Hugo's the same way.

Foxcatcher has one of the slowest releases I've ever seen. It only just came to a local theater this weekend. Steve Carell, Channing Tatum, and Mark Ruffalo all give really impressive performances, but I didn't care much for the movie as a whole. The story is stretched really thin and it's very slow/heavy.

Yeah the mess at Sony could drastically affect the chances of another Spider-Man movie. Although they are talking about maybe selling Spider-Man (or working out some compromise, the news/phrasing seems to change every day) with Marvel to put him in the same universe as The Avengers, although they'd probably recast him if the deal works.

I think they will eventually recover, but it's going to be really rough for the next while. They've lost a ton of money and their executives look terrible, with all of their private comments now public. I would say the best way to bounce back would be for them to fire most of their higher-ups and get some new management.

A role in a movie? Hmm....that's a tough question to answer........Ok, to quote Henry Hill (played by Ray Liotta); "For as long as I can remember, I've always wanted to be a gangster" (in a movie) :-P

No, but I don't really know. Haven't really thought about it that much. But a gangster would be cool. Or you know, the obvious choices like Batman and James Bond etc.
And me being kinda short and all, I could probably pass for a dwarf or a hobbit in Middle-Earth :-P

And you, what would you like to play? And which actors, if you could choose, deserves the acting awards for the four acting categories at the academy awards? Actors who weren't nominated can be chosen too. Personally I would give the awards to;

•Micheal Keaton or Jake Gyllenhaal for best actor in a leading role
•Rosamund Pike for best actress in a leading role (I haven't seen Still Alice yet though)
•J.K Simmons for best actor in a supporting role (this is also the best performance of the year in my opinion - all categories included!)
•Patricia Arquette for best actress in a supporting role

It's been years since I saw it, so I can't think of too much at the moment. But I loved the action and the humour. For many people, the film falls apart when the action ramps up at the end. But I had a huge grin on my face, especially when he used a pig as a weapon. :D

My expectations were low and I was angry because my cinema wasn't showing Drag Me to Hell, which was my first choice. It was a blessing in disguise for me.

If The Revenent stick closely to the true story of Hugh Glass, then it will be unbelievable! Man was hard to stop!

I was very disappoint with Sin City 2. Rouble looked wrong compared to the first film, Brolin was nothing like the original Dwight, Alba was poor, Gordon Levitt's storyline felt pointless and none of the action or lines were memorable. It's already leaving my mind. I waited nine years for this movie. :/

My town and other surroundings town are under threat from a fire. We may need to evacuate. The flames are twenty metres high, it stretches for 196 kilometres (not exaggerating) and it has burnt 60,000 hectares since Friday when lightning started a fire. Luckily the firefighters have guided the fire around the town. But a bad wind is all it would need to wipe a town out. We are hoping for rain, but it hasn't been coming in this very hot week.

I was on board to love Sin City 2, but my enjoyment kept dropping and dropping. Not one of the stories is half as good as any of the great stories in the first film. I really think Rodriguez needs to think long and hard about his career. Can't believe he took so long to make this, especially when he made all this Spy Kids films. Fair enough, two is fine, but four! Geez!

I liked both,but felt that Magnum Force was much better. Stronger villian, stronger story, stronger script, pretty much superior in every way. What do you think of the Dirty Harry films?

We did get rain, we're very thankful. But the fire is still a threat to many towns and could come back our way. It's now 250km in size and has burnt 85,000 hectares.

I'm Australian, our country deals with fires all the time. But I have never had to worry about fire, despite being surrounded by trees in ever direction. This has been said to be the biggest fire in our states history. They have brought in the army to help.

Big Hero 6 was really good. Maybe it didn't surprise me as much as it surprised you, since I expected it to be great. The characters were good in my opinion and the writing was really solid. But the biggest positive in my opinion was the absolutely incredibly beautiful animation and the phenomenal atmosphere. It's probably the best looking animated film I have ever seen to be honest. And Baymax was awesome as well. The villain felt weak in my opinion and there were some plot points that I didn't fully buy into really, but other than that the movie was pretty awesome.

Yeah, it lightning that started the fire that went undetected for a few days. There's so much fuel (leaves, branches) out there on the ground, that it got large very quickly. The had Victorian firefighters, now they've called in ACT, NT, NSW and Queensland firefighters as well. It has now burnt 85,000 hectares and is 250km in size. We're still in danger, but for the moment, it's closer to another town than us. They think that they'll still be fighting the fire in May!

Yeah, I'm extremely excited for Jurassic World! I though the first trailer was...solid. Not bad, not great either. But the superbowl trailer, holy...now that, that looked sweet as hell in my opinion. I know some people are against the idea of having Chris Pratt train the Velociraptors, and that some are opposing the idea of making a new, hybrid dinosaur (the Indominus Rex). All I know is that that sounds awesome in my ears. The Jurassic Park franchise needs something new, something fresh by now, not the old plot recycled (like some people seem to want). I don't want a "Jurassic Park" Jurassic Park movie. I don't want them to try to recapture the magic of the original Jurassic Park movie by basically recycling the plot into a new movie, because that would probably only lead to a disaster. So, hopefully Colin Trevorrow can bring the franchise back from extinction (pardon the bad pun) after the awful third one.

The effects for Jurassic World looks kinda unfinished, yes, but, as you said, they will probably clean that up before release. And the movie does look bright, but I don't really mind that to be honest. About Chris Pratt, I think he will be great in the movie. I thought he crushed it as Star-Lord, and I think he would make a very good fit for Indiana Jones.

I mean, we have heard stuff about "Jurassic Park 4" for such a long time now. I remember like 8-or-something years ago I heard about a new Jurassic Park movie. This was like 5 years before I even took an actual interest in movies. I've been watching Jurassic Park since I was like 5-6, so....yeah, it's gonna be interesting to see what Colin Trevorrow can bring to the franchise.

The one movie that actually got me into movies was The Dark Knight Rises. Saw that in July 2012 at my local movie theater and I was just completely blown away. After that I started to check out more movies, but it wasn't until like a year later that I found myself on roughly the same ground as today. Before then I guess I would be considered a casual movie fan.

How about you, were there any movies that started your interest in film, or have you always loved movies?

Nope, haven't read the Watchmen graphic novel, but it's something I plan on doing soon as I've heard it's much better than the film. You read it?

As for the film, I loved parts of it, and wanted to love the rest of it, but I was a bit let down. All the stuff with The Comedian and especially the stuff with Rorschach (he might be one of my favorite movie characters of all-time) impressed the heck out of me, but the Silk Spectre, Ozymandias and Night-Owl aspects of the story came across as really cheesy and corny to me.

I'll be seeing The Fountain, Barton Fink and The Grand Budapest Hotel next.

Not sure if you were asking about Gigli or Top Gun, so I'll answer for both haha

I think it was the story of Top Gun that didn't quite measure up for me. The characters and the acting and especially the soundtrack were all fun, but the story started to lose my interest toward the end.

Everything about Gigli is hard to watch. The script, the acting, everything is pretty rough. Christopher Walken has a cameo and at least pushes his scene into "so bad, it's good" territory, but overall it's just a real struggle haha

Hmm that's a good question. I can see why it would be the Avengers because they've got such a huge audience in the palms of their hands by making all of their movies connected plus it kicks off the summer season, so there's not as much competition, but I think I agree with you. Star Wars is such a big deal that I think it has to be the highest grossing movie of the year. But, either way, I'll go see both of them. No matter which one grosses more, I think audiences will be the real winners. At least, hopefully.

The casual movie goes is probably waiting for Fast and Furious 7. They probably look at this and think it looks stupid. I see why that would be one reason. Then, the poor reviews wouldn't have helped either. Plus many people were disappointed with Elysium. I think a combination of these factors led to it being a box office failure. I think he needs to do something new now, something of of South Africa. That's why it's interesting he is making a new Alien movie. I will gladly forget Alien 3 and 4 if this is great.

3. Cape Fear
4. Bringing Out the Dead
5. Taxi Driver
6. The Wolf of Wall Street
7. Goodfellas
8. The King of Comedy
9. The Aviator
10. Casino
11. Gangs of New York
12. New York, New York
13. A Personal Journey with Martin Scorsese Through American Movies
14. Mean Streets
15. Hugo
16. The Last Waltz
17. The Color of Money
18. Boxcar Bertha

Out of all of them, the only one I would call bad would be Boxcar Bertha. The rest range from acceptable to masterpieces. Everything from thirteen up is excellent, which is an amazing track record for any director.

I just loved the scene, so I overlooked the pain she would've had. I also think, hey, it's the future! :D I just can't stand simple solutions, like running sideways. Or!! When people in movies are running from horses, but stay on the road, instead of running in the bloody dense forest!! No film comes to mind, but I know I've seen this many times.

Love Ridley Scott films. Body of Lies was just ok for me and Exodus didn't work at all. But I did enjoy Robin Hood as well.

Many people hated The Counselor, but that worked for me just fine. Not what I wanted it to be, but I accepted it. I love gangster films, so American Gangster is made for me. Kingdom of Heaven was ok, but I need to see the director's cut Blu-ray, which is apparently a masterpiece. Matchstick Men is weird and oddly touching, everybody looked the same to me in Black Hawk Down, Hannibal was beautifully crazy, but was always going to fail in comparison to Silence of the Lambs. Gladiator and Blade Runner are amazing, G.I Jane is a guilty pleasure, Thelma & Louise is ok, not my kind of movie. Legend was great when I saw it, but failed on re-watch and The Duelists bored me greatly.

I haven't seen A Good Year, White Squall, Someone to Watch Over Me and 1492.

And the ending, my goodness the ending... When it was over I was completely out of breath, and I wanted to see it again right away! I'd say it has a lot of potential to be a top 10 movie for me.

Yeah I agree it was a complicated role for Sam Rockwell, but I think he pulled it off well.

The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby was initially two separate films about a struggling married couple, one version told entirely from the guy's point of view, and one told from the girl's point of view. I think it premiered at Sundance last year maybe? Anyway, no matter where it premiered, when Harvey Weinstein bought it for distribution rights, he was afraid people wouldn't pay to see two separate movies, so he had both versions cut together, so that it was told from both perspectives.

I watched the combined version first, then her version, then his (fast-forwarding through some of the repeat scenes haha). If you check them out, don't waste your time with the combined version. If you pretend the combined version doesn't exist, the other two are kind of a cool experience. The version from the girl's perspective is probably the best cut overall, although my favorite character is in much more of the guy's perspective. Regardless, I probably wouldn't say any of them are great films, so I'm not sure I'd totally recommend them haha but it is kind of an interesting experiment and experience.

I'm actually not into cricket that much. Takes too long. There's a 20/20 version of the game that's much faster, and is more fun to watch. A casual watcher, like me, enjoys this format of the game. I'm a basketball fan and an AFL fan. You probably haven't heard of AFL. It's Australia's very own style of football, which is nothing like any sport. But if I had to try, it's a combination of NFL, rugby, and soccer. It's an oval ball we play with, an dew have to bounce it every twenty metres. A skill that takes time to get used to.

I think the relationship between the characters of Harris and Neeson make the film. There's some great scenes, but is was very predicable, and reminiscent of so many films that I won't name in case you haven't seen them.

I didn't like Non-Stop as much as you, but I did enjoy it. 3/5 for me. I had fun with it.

I loved Grand Budapest right after I saw it, but after thinking about for a while now, maybe I didn't like it as much as I thought. But every Wes Anderson movie I've seen as vastly improved on a second viewing so maybe I'll love it again next time.

Anything planned to see soon?

I agree. I think movies are starting to take bigger risks though. With films like Birdman, Boyhood, and Eleanor Rigby, plus all of the riskier television that's starting to come out, I think studios are starting to realize people want movies to take bigger risks. So hopefully we start getting riskier movies!

Hey wade man you really raised some valid points there :-) you are right there are many sub-plots in every comic books stories such as tony stark alcoholism steve rogers inner dilema bruce banners inner rage which in marvel films are quite frankly untouched. I agree with you whole heartly :-)

We all have our likes and dislikes :-) (IMO first avenger was quite bad ha ha ha)
Character development is an important aspect in any movie.If you can't develop characters you sure need to have a great story to cover it up.And avengrs really has some poor character development.Hawkeye & black widow in my opinion had lack of back story too.

And about DC comic movies I really love man of steel (it also has the best planet krypton IMO)the dark knight triology is great and i am really waiting for batman v superman :dawn of justice.not a big ben affleck fan but waiting to see him as batman though.:-)

Heo on side note just for fun who are your top 3 comic book hero ???

Mine are 1.the wolverine
2.spiderman

I do watch a lot of TV. Right now I'm pretty into Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Community, Modern Family, Family Guy, The Simpsons, Saturday Night Live, and Better Call Saul, among others.

I never got into Mad Men either, but Breaking Bad is as good as everyone says. What sitcoms do you watch?

Seinfeld is one of my all-time favorites. I also like Everybody Loves Raymond, The King of Queens, That '70s Show, and The Office. I've actually never seen Happy Days and I've only seen a few episodes of Leave It To Beaver and The Andy Griffith Show, but never got into them. I have also seen several episodes of Parks and Recreation but could never get into that one either. How did you feel about the series finale?

Better Call Saul is a worthy follow-up to Breaking Bad so far. What a lot of Breaking Bad fans forget is that the first two or three seasons of Breaking Bad were a little slow, because they had to set everything up for the next seasons to be so awesome. So I think that's what's happening with Better Call Saul; it's another slow build so everything can explode at once.

I keep thinking of more and more great episodes as I type this. I love most episodes, especially from around season 3 onward.

Yeah, the television market should give more series' a chance. Although, I guess I understand that they have to make money, and if people aren't immediately watching, they have a problem.

I also listen to a little bit of everything across a wide time span. With the exceptions of country music and heavy metal, I listen to a little bit of everything from about the 60s onward. My favorite current artists are probably Mumford and Sons, Of Monsters and Men, and Childish Gambino.

Public Enemies I wasn't as crazy about. I thought it was a talented cast, but everything moved too slowly for my tastes, especially given the premise about bank robberies.

That's a great question. I'm actually studying screenwriting and have written a few scripts so far, so I'd at least start with some of the more original ideas I have, but I'd eventually like to make movies based off the TV shows and video games I've come to love over the years. A lot of my writing is a lot of witty banter, so I'd probably start with comedy, and then later start integrating other genres.

It's funny that you mention Shea Whigham - I was just looking at his IMDB page the other day! But I agree that a career like his in a variety of movies/genres would be very cool. Another cool thing would be (even though they're usually bigger names with bigger roles), but to find a director and have the two of you like working together so much, you're in all of their movies like Wes Anderson does with his casts or Michael Caine and Christopher Nolan or Samuel L. Jackson and Quentin Tarantino or even John Ratzenberger and all the Pixar movies.

Yeah I also think JJ Abrams will do amazing things with the new Star Wars.

And I agree that the Batman vs. Superman movie has a lot of hype around it, people either thinking it's going to be the best or worst movie to ever come out. And you're right, they still have a lot of work left to do. I don't mind the new Batman voice, and didn't really mind Ben Affleck being cast in the first place. I think that since I didn't really like Man of Steel, and don't like most of Zack Snyder's work in general, I'm very apprehensive about it.

If you do decide to check him out be prepared, he is very (VERY) different and is definitely not for everyone. But if you're into that kinda thing, there's no one better than him.

Donnie Darko has wonderfully combined a little bit of everything I've been into since being a teenager. From subjects it deals with and overall ambiance to its soundtrack, so it has been (and still is) one of the most personal ones in my top20.

The Babadook was good, but I think it got kind of overhyped for me. The first half is kind of slow, but the second half is very interesting and plays up the suspense.

I was kind of disappointed by Noah. There were a lot of elements that I liked, like the cinematography and the performances, especially from Emma Watson and Logan Lerman, but as a whole it felt kind of disjointed and didn't really come together for me. Did you see Noah?

That's really sweet. :) I've tried to take both criteria into consideration when ranking, but realized that it was not that easy to 'just choose' between some of them, because there are often very different levels of almost equal value in which you can form an opinion, therefore it becomes kind of impossible to make up your mind altogether. Not to mention how easily choices can be influenced by something as trivial as a particular mood you're in at that moment, or the fact that personal attitudes towards certain movies change from time to time, as you've said it earlier...:)
Usually I don't watch movies more than once (except for the Star Wars, LOTR and Moulin Rouge, maybe, couldn't get bored with those even if I tried to), unless I felt there were some details or meanings missed the first time I saw it, or if it's one of those films which beauty lies precisely in leaving the viewer wondering about all the possible answers while serving you none unambiguously (speaking of multiple interpretations, Lynch would be the first one who comes in my mind as an example).

Interstellar thrilled me most with its story, made me think about it for a couple of days after seeing it, accompanied with feelings of regret for not being a professional physicist to begin with. :)
Other than that, the Inception belongs to the same category for me as the Matrix Trilogy, the only reason for not choosing the first one over the latter was probably the age difference, you know how hard it gets for a movie to sweep you off your feet when you're already acquainted with something similar. Zodiac was also one of the impressive ones, very thrilling indeed. And A Beautiful Mind would probably be THE biopic to me.
Ooh, I'd most certainly start with Field of Dreams, The Place Beyond the Pines, 21 Jump Street and Gone Girl, then continue with 3:10 to Yuma (both original and remake), Dirty Harry, The Karate Kid and The Great Escape (all classics, I know, shame on me for not seeing them before -.-), then proceed to Enemy, Prisoners, and Taxi Driver, and at last finish off with American Graffiti, Public Enemy and Rebel Without a Cause. :)
If you wish to add some more, feel free to do so!
And sorry for spamming your page now, I got a bit carried away...

Yeah, I didn't mind that it strayed from its source material, in fact I expected it to. I think I got tripped up in some of the character motivations, and the Watchers kind of bugged me. But I think Logan Lerman is quickly turning into one of Hollywood's most reliable actors, it seems like every performance he gives is a good one.

Well, I finished This is the End and I gotta say, I agree with you 100%. The first half was very strong, but when it quits being a buddy movie and you get all the supernatural crap, it falls apart.

I haven't seen many Seth Rogen movies, but maybe I'd go with Funny People? Rogen did a really good job in it, and I haaaaate Adam Sandler, but I actually thought he did a really good job in it, maybe because that role is so close to his real life. It was pretty funny too, way more than I thought it was gonna be. Someday I'll see Superbad, Knocked Up and Pinnapple Express, then I'll get back to you...

Let's Be Cops was one of those movies that I didn't think was very good, but I did enjoy it a lot more than I thought I would. It's relatively predictable, but Jake Johnson and Damon Wayans Jr. have a lot of chemistry, and their dynamic helps elevate the material. I also thought it got better as it went along. So basically, I'd probably only recommend it if you can watch it for free, if that makes sense haha

I could definitely see that. I also remember the trailers and thinking "Oh, there's no way this would be any good". But after seeing the movie, I think the marketing really hurt it. The trailers basically only focused on the first half of the movie, which is just messing around with the concept. But they never really touched on the plot/conflict that ramps up in the second half.

Plus, it's helpful that it's only like an hour and a half haha

Why should it be definitive? After all, isn't the idea of indefiniteness much more exciting? :)
That depends on your character, I guess...Some people like to stick with the familiar, some are more likely to look for novelties (even if they end up being dissapointed :)). I think there's always at least one aspect you can appreciate in a movie, or if not...Well, then you'll know better what to avoid next time, right? :) I wasn't really serious about judging people by putting them into one of those two boxes, luckily, human beings aren't as simple as that, so I'd say that most of us have both traits in general...
As for re-watching movies, it seems to me that some of those I watch for no apparent reason from time to time, kind of have some special, almost 'therapeutic' power on me, so that might be the underlying reason for not getting bored with some in my case...:)
But I'm actually more of a 'collector' when it comes to movies, so basically I'd just like to watch as many as I can while I still can.

Wow, you really were lucky to do such cool stuff in high school, and I agree with you on everything you said about A Beautiful Mind! A very soothing soundtrack indeed, thank you for reminding me about it. :)
As I said before, at least all the top20 could be my number one on the list, but The Matrix is currently there (and might stay there for quite some time :)) because, obviously, it was the first movie that changed my perception of the world entirely, and that's not something you can easily forget...I was definitely under 15 when I first saw it, its visual features and the complexity on so many degrees left me in awe, in addition it also made me realize which college I was probably going to attend in the future. xD
It has incorporated excellent visual effects and probably the coolest action scenes I've ever seen with an intriguing philosophy and its ultimate suggestion that the world might LITERALLY not be what it seems to be. Breathtaking! :)

No, Due Date was garbage. I hated it. It was just two really annoying, really unlikeable characters not really doing anything funny. I watched it with some other people who liked it, but it just wasn't for me.

How is Place Beyond the Pines? I mean it's in your top 10 so I know you love it, but I'd like to hear more of your thoughts on it because I don't really know what it's about and I really wanna see it.

Did I make it sound like I've seen it in the movies as soon as it was released? :D Well, the truth is, I didn't...Seen it some five years after on TV (pathetic, I know xD).
Nevertheless, it had the same impact on me as it has today in HD!

The Good, The Bad and The Ugly was definitely a pleasant surprise to me, since I never really was a huge fan of any kind of westerns to begin with. Kinda avoided them ever since I had to watch one 'Z grade' German dubbed with my family. xD

But this one was great! Particularly liked the structure and the characters, absolutely LOVED their sense of humor, and finally realized why all the women had the hots for Clint Eastwood. xD

Not to mention that epic musical score I've been imitating just for fun all these years. :D
I'd love to see more of those, so if you have any further suggestions, please feel free to share!
And what would you say about it? :D

BTW, I feel obliged to apologize for my distorted non-native use of English every once in a while, so sorry about that, I hope I at least make some sense every once in a while. xD

I like The Hulk when he's a part of a team like in The Avengers, and I think Mark Ruffalo is the best portrayal we've seen so far, but a big problem of standalone Hulk movies is that the audience wants to see the Hulk, but the main character doesn't, so Bruce Banner is constantly trying to avoid situations that would give the audience what they want.

What did you think of Mad Max?

I do like Mark Ruffalo. Even though when someone asks me who my favorite actors are, he doesn't seem to come to mind, I do like him in everything I've seen him in. I agree he does seem like a nice guy too.

I've only seen the first Mad Max. It was a little too slow for my tastes, and half the time I wasn't sure what was going on, but I thought a lot of the action was really cool. The new one looks like it's a lot more action and a faster pace, so I might see it and like it more, but I'm still kind of on the fence about it.

Thank you for the recommendations! Whew, a fine long list of 'movies to watch' I've got already. :))

So you're that 'Wade'? Ben Wade? :D
Good thing I mysteriously changed my mind at the last minute and decided to see those two first!
But I honestly can't make up my mind about which one I found 'better'...
The original has a certain charm about itself, maybe a bit more coherent story, and ofc, being a female, couldn't help myself falling for the emotional drama between Dan and Alice...:)
On the other hand, the remake was much more engaging, visually more appealing (although I'm usually very fond of film noir), the ending was definitely unexpected (=thumbs up!), and ofc, it featured brilliant Russel Crowe whose performance somehow elevates any movie to a higher level! :D

Well, since I obviously don't mind blurting out anything that comes in my mind anyway, why keep that information a secret? xD I'm from Croatia. :)

Haha! I actually really liked Superbad, which is weird, because my high school life was nooothing like that. It was really funny but really smart at the same time, and it's probably the only teen-sex-comedy that has references to stuff like the Coen Brothers, Orson Welles, The Beatles and Dr. Strangelove, so big props for that. Do you like it?

Yeah, I agree with you about seeing Fury Road either being super exciting or exhaustingly bad. I definitely think it will be polarizing. I was watching a video where people were predicting what the top 10 movies of the summer would be, and I don't think any of them had Mad Max on the lists, even though they're excited for it, because they said it had a "Pacific Rim feel" where it would appeal to a niche audience and turn most other people off. Have you seen Pacific Rim?

I have seen Pacific Rim. I can see why some people liked it, but it just wasn't for me. I didn't care about any of the characters and the story didn't make a lot of sense. Just felt like big CGI robots punching big CGI monsters. Admittedly, though, the action sequences were pretty cool.

Hopefully Fury Road can strike a better balance with story and action.

I was nervous going into Age of Ultron, since so many reviews were coming in. But overall I was pretty happy/impressed with it. Right now I have it in the middle of the other Marvel Cinematic Universe movies, but that could change. I thought they did a better job with balancing all of the characters than in the first one, but I think I might have liked the first one more. I heard Joss Whedon had to cut like an hour out, so I'd be interested in seeing his full cut.

Yeah I think they probably cut out a lot of Ultron. I know they cut out scenes with Loki and I think they probably cut out whatever Hulk hallucinates when Scarlet Witch possesses him.

I don't think Marvel has confirmed anything past Infinity War, and I think that it would be a good finale to the MCU, but I wouldn't be surprised if they keep it going to make more money.

Yeah, Ultron didn't really seem to have any motivation, but I still thought he was descent, mainly because every other MCU villian has been bland as toast. Vision was awesome too, he's got a lot of potential to become my favorite Avenger. The end-credits scene was a huge letdown for me, it just told us what we already know.

I have only seen the pilot for Agents of SHIELD. I actually felt the opposite about Agent Coulson, and I was pretty sure he wasn't really dead at the end of The Avengers, but I felt like the way they brought him back was kind of a cheat. The rest of the characters on the show didn't feel particularly engaging to me.

I haven't seen Daredevil, but I've heard only good things.

I do a little bit of both rewatching and watching new ones, but usually watching new ones.

I like being told I look like some of them. Ben Stiller, Paul Rudd, and Topher Grace are all actors I really enjoy, and I can see where some of the similarities come from. Although I think my personality is more similar to Topher Grace than my appearance. I used to not like being told I look like Jay Baruchel because it started right around the time She's Out Of My League came out, where the whole premise is that he's not very good-looking. But now that I've seen him in more things, I can see the similarities more and like the comparison a little more. Nicolas Cage is a tougher one. I can see the similarities a little bit, but I think I look more like the others than him. Plus his movies have been a little rougher lately, which makes the comparison a little harder haha

I don't really care for There Will Be Blood or Punch Drunk Love and I think The Master and Inherent Vice are alright. But I absolutely love Magnolia.

Same as you, I thought the first one was pretty good, and I hoped that the second one just had bad marketing or something. But it was just as bad as the trailers made it look. I was very disappointed. I'm assuming part of it is because they didn't bring back John Cusack and Lizzy Caplan, but it was also trying to hard to be over the top and vulgar.

I also really liked Non-Stop. I thought it was a solid thriller with some good performances and good twists. I figured out who the bad guys were before Liam Neeson, but was still surprised when they were revealed, which was pretty cool.

A frustrating theater experience? That sucks. What was it, if you don't mind me asking? It seems like almost every time I go to the theater now, people are either talking or they bring their kid who is way too young to be there.

Silver Linings Playbook is still far and away my favorite David O'Russell movie, but Three Kings probably moved ahead of The Fighter as my second favorite. Glad to hear about Boogie Nights improving on a second watch, maybe Three Kings will do the same ;)

I'd like to get to everything on my List Of Shame eventually, if only to say I've seen them. I plan on knocking out The General and Taxi Driver this week, but the ones I actually am interested in seeing are Alien and Aliens.

I've seen Double Indemnity. It didn't do much for me either way, although there are some clever lines. Ghostbusters is a pretty funny comedy, with a good performance from Bill Murray. But ranked 30 of all time feels a little high.

I may need to rewatch the first Kick-Ass, but I don't remember liking it very much. That being said, I thought Kick-Ass 2 was enjoyable, ridiculous fun. I think the people that don't like the sequel are people that really liked the original, so it'll be interesting to see when I go back and check out the first one if I end up liking it more.

I thought Crash was pretty contrived and manipulative. It feels like every scene boils down to "white people are bad and sometimes other races can be bad too". On the other hand, though, it is very well cast, and Don Cheadle, Terrance Howard, Michael Pena, Matt Dillon, and even Ludacris give very good performances.

I think the biggest part of why Crash gets negative comments is because a lot of people don't think it should have beat Brokeback Mountain for Best Picture. I'm hoping to see Brokeback for the first time in the next few days so that I can compare.

I really liked Being John Malkovich. It was very strange but overall it really worked for me. I have seen three out of Jonze's four features, and I like all three (I'd probably rank them Being John Malkovich first, then Adaptation, then Her, and haven't seen Where The Wild Things Are). He has a very unique feel to his movies. What are your thoughts on him?

Man, that's kind of a hard question. Well, Travolta was amazing in it, the camera-work was top notch, but the lead actress was kind of ditzy, and the ending,Oooooh that ending. I'm still not sure what to think of it, but if someone said they hated the ending, I wouldn't try to argue with them. It really stuck with me though, so I'm not sure what to think.

Well seeing as I haven't seen Thunderdome, these are my thoughts on the three I have seen.

First one is, meh. Not very bad, not very good. Absurdly slow paced with a ridiculous villain (with even more ridiculous hair). Pacing is pretty terrible. Don't really understand why people like it so much, and I really don't understand why George Miller decided to expand on the first one by making the sequels take place in a post apocalyptic wasteland? It just seems strange to me.

The Road Warrior was a pretty big improvement, though it was still dull. The beginning and ending was good, the middle though, zZzZz. Bruce Spence was easily the best part of the movie, while that annoying fucking kid gave Jar-Jar Binks a run for his money as one of the most annoying characters I've ever seen in a movie ever. Really don't understand how this is regarded as one of the best "action" movies ever. I'd say this is on the same level as Ghostbusters and The Goonies, when it comes to movies that I don't understand the love of (although those films are better).

Fury Road was incredible though. Holy shit, what an action film! This is how you shoot action and this is how you direct it. The score by Junkie XL was perfect too, while the cinematography made me wanna walk up to the screen and forcefully lick it because it was so beautiful. All in all, Fury Road was a true action masterpiece. Cannot see how any movie will beat it this year.

What about you, what do you think of the Mad Max films?

Just finished Brokeback Mountain. I was very impressed with the performances from Jake Gyllenhaal, Heath Ledger, and Michelle Williams, but overall I thought the movie was kind of boring. I've read the script too, and while I thought that was kind of slow too, it was cool seeing how they translated it from page to screen.

If I had to choose between Crash and Brokeback Mountain, I think I would have chosen Crash for Best Picture. But at the same time, I probably would have nominated Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, Thank You For Smoking, The 40 Year Old Virgin, Brick, and Sin City for that year over any of the actual nominees. Not exactly typical award material though haha

I agree, I really like Spike Jonze's acting work too. He should act more, he's surprisingly good.

This John Malkovich question is really good.... I don't know who I'd choose. Maybe someone everybody loves like Leonardo DiCaprio? Or maybe Wes Anderson, because I feel like he would see the world in such an interesting way. What about you?

I do make random connections with movies, though I can't think of any off the top of my head haha I feel like the ones I make are generally more related to animated films than live action ones though. Connections through different Disney movies and even through other animation studios, you know?

Kung Fury is ridiculous. Apparently it was from a Swedish production company that did a crowdfunding campaign, and even though they didn't raise enough to make a feature, they raised enough to make a short. So on YouTube now there's a hilarious 30 minute short. It's over-the-top and sometimes intentionally bad, basically a parody of 80s cop movies and kung fu movies. I don't want to give away any of the plot because it was so much fun to be blown away as it was happening and also because I don't think I could explain well enough. I'd recommend checking it out.

To say the truth i'm not that high on Quentin Tarantino.Lets just says that he doesn't makes my type of movie .Not that i hate his work but you can say that i genuenly tend pass his works.IWhat i need him do is is like cut about 20 mins from his movies they are just 20-30 mins too long.
I'v seen django unchained once i thought it to be pritty bad movie but now i like it but it is not any special.And Christopher Waltz freeking overracted the whole movie he annoyed my brains off 6/10 from me:-)
Ingorious basterds was no good either.Another chris waltz overracting.5.5/10
Kill bill vol 1 &2 were entertaining but i dont like uma thruman 7/10 each
Resrviour dogs was pritty bad actually.Too divisive for its own good.3/10 from me
And at last pulp fiction it had everything but a story.I think it is a classic example of style over substance.Not bad but not great either.6/10 from me
I haven't seen his other 2 works and don't any intentions on seeing them.I heard that he was comming with the hateful eight yeah i hope it is good but i dont feel any urge for seeing it . So thats how i sum up Quentin Tarantino movies.

I have seen a pretty good number of Coen Brothers movies (I think maybe half?) and I usually like them. The Big Lebowski and Fargo are both in my top 50 movies. I really like the way they blend drama and comedy.

I'd definitely recommend Fargo. O Brother Where Art Thou and Inside Llewyn Davis are both decent, but not as good as their best work in my opinion.

I liked The Lion King 1 1/2, at least enough for what it was. In terms of Disney sequels, it was certainly one of the better ones. And I thought it was interesting way to have done a spin-off. What are your thoughts on it?

I had mixed feelings about Tomorrowland. A lot of the adventure stuff was really well done, and there were a lot of nods and references to things that really appealed to the Disney fan in me. But I think the biggest issue is that it couldn't choose who it's main character was. It bounces back and forth between George Clooney and Britt Robertson, but not in a way that works like in Fury Road with Max and Furiosa. It was kind of like if Ocean's Eleven had been from Matt Damon's perspective. Overall though I thought it was better than most people have said, and came SO close to being a good movie. Right now it's 4th out of the 8 2015 movies I've seen.

I don't get into the horror remakes. Or really even the horror originals. But like you said I might catch the Poltergeist remake on TV or something in the future if only to say I've seen more of Sam Rockwell's filmography.

I heard that the actress in the original didn't know the skeletons were real until they started shooting the pool scene. I don't know if that's actually true or not, but it's creepy to imagine being in that situation.

The Firm was interesting. Tom Cruise gives a really good performance and the last half hour or so is very compelling. But there's probably about a half hour in the middle somewhere that could have been cut out to give it a better payoff haha

Chappie didn't really work for me. I wasn't a fan of District 9, so I actually liked Chappie more, but Chappie felt like it was trying to tell three different stories at once and felt kind of disjointed for me. You saw it, right?

How was Aloha? I saw the first 8 minutes they released on YouTube.

I really liked the movie too, and kind of agree with most of your points. Obviously not a perfect movie by any means, but it was definitely a lot of fun.

I like the original Jurassic Park, and certainly recognize it as a crowning achievement in film, but I don't have the same fondness of it as a lot of people, so I didn't go into Jurassic World with crazy high expectations, and just took it for what it was, which I really enjoyed.

I was also nervous about Chris Pratt. I was a big fan of Guardians, but I was afraid he would lean too heavily on that sort of character, so it was nice to see him as something different here. I think Bryce Dallas Howard was also good, but I think I'm one of the only people that didn't mind that she was running in heels given who her character was haha for me, the real standout was Jake Johnson as the control room guy. I was a fan of his going into this movie, and thought he delivered, so hopefully this will be a big break for him to be in more major movies.

I think that Jurassic Park didn't ever really need a sequel, because they delved into the science/nature stuff as much as they could in my opinion in the first movie, so I was okay with them taking the action movie route in Jurassic World. I agree it didn't have as much terror as the original. Although I thought there was a good amount of suspense when the Indominous Rex was heading toward the heart of the park where all of the guests were just sitting ducks.

As for how it stacks up in the series, I think it's close to Jurassic Park for me, but probably second. Jurassic Park III is pretty bad, but some of the acting is pretty good. I really only like the trailer dangling over the cliff scene of Lost World, so I think it might be my least favorite. I haven't rewatched any of them in a long time though, so it could be different.

Jurassic World is my #1 of the year so far, with Kingsman and Ultron rounding out the top three, although I expect them all to move further down the list as the year goes on. What are your other top movies of the year so far?

I also wish they used more animatronics in some of the close-ups. I think that might have upped the scariness of it all.

I was surprised that Age of Extinction was better than I expected. Probably because I expected one of the worst movies of all time haha and it wasn't, but it was still pretty bad. Marky Mark's acting was pretty close to it is in The Happening, where he's doing what he can with the dialogue, but you can tell he regrets being in this movie. I haven't seen the third Transformers movie, but I've seen the other two, and while I think the first one is the best, Age of Extinction might rank above the second one for me. But I'd probably have to rewatch both to know for sure, and I have no intention of doing that any time soon haha

I don't usually watch Director's Cuts. Every now and then I'll see one, but it would have to be one of a movie I already really like or one that everyone says is better than the original version. The only Director's Cut I know for sure that I've seen is Tropic Thunder. I like that version probably as equally as the theatrical version.

Yeah it is weird how super similar films come out the same year like that. Even just yesterday, I heard that three Bermuda Triangle films are in development and four Robin Hood movies are coming out in the next few years.

Inside Out was my most anticipated movie of the year, so I was afraid of being disappointed. But it actually met my dangerously high expectations, if not exceeded them. I'll probably have to watch it again, but right now it falls in my top 5 Pixar movies. It is best to go in fresh though.

What are your top 5 Pixar movies?

I have seen the Ridley Scott Robin Hood. I didn't like it. What are your thoughts on it?

I think my top 5 Pixar's are:
1.) Toy Story 3
2.) Finding Nemo
3.) Toy Story
4.) The Incredibles
5.) Inside Out

I'm fine with Pixar making sequels and prequels and stuff, since I really like the Toy Story sequels and I actually liked Monsters University more than Monsters Inc. But like you said, Cars 2 is pretty rough haha I think as long as they keep a balance of original and sequels, they will be good. I didn't really like Brave either, so they've made original and sequel movies that I didn't like.

About x men movies yeah i am a big fan of of themIt made me a big fan of Hugh jackman.X men as you said started the modern super hero genre.And x 2 was surprisingly better than its prequel.But to say the truth the last stand with its flaws and all is still my favourite from the orignal triology.But x men origins was just pure crap.First class was a surprice .It again brought back to xmen on track after origins let down.I was not that impressed with the wolverine.But man o man X men dofp just blasted everything.It zoomed into my top 20( current # 10) and became my favourite CBM of all time :-) .Now i am madly waiting for apocalypse .there were rumours 'bout Hugh jackman not being in the project: but the current rumours suggests that he is in the movie.My heart broke when i got the news that he is living x men and that wolverine 3 will be his last.I am a BIG fan of him.

Part of I think why Pixar seemed to have so many sequels come out at once was because their original movies, Inside Out and The Good Dinosaur, kept getting delayed. The delay seemed to really benefit Inside Out, so hopefully it works for The Good Dinosaur too, although I'm more nervous about that one.

I hadn't realized until yesterday how many scores James Horner had actually done. All of the movies I'd seen that he'd scored I've liked at least the score for, and ended up listening to the Field of Dreams score in honor of him. It's a great score.

I feel almost exactly the same way about The Sandlot as you just described haha

I loved the first like 30 or 45 minutes of Godzilla. And then it kind of lost me for the rest of it. I think it's because Bryan Cranston was the only character I really liked. And Elizabeth Olsen too, to a lesser extent, so when it became more and more about Aaron Taylor-Johnson I started to lose interest. Have you seen it/did you like it?

I was looking forward to Cake, because I really like Anna Kendrick and some of the other people in the supporting cast, and so many people were saying Jennifer Aniston gave one of the best performances of the year in it. But then when I actually watched it, I was kind of disappointed. I felt like the script was trying so hard to make me laugh and cry but in reality was too meandering and cliche to make me do either. Jennifer Aniston gave a decent performance, but I think the script kept her from really shining. Hopefully, she gets a chance to do more dramas where she can really show she's better than some of the dumber romantic comedies she tends to end up in lately haha

I agree, I don't want more cinematic universes haha I'd be fine with a Godzilla trilogy, I guess, depending on how much of the feedback they take from the first one. It seems like most people were disappointed by the story.

Cool, I'll try to check out Bull Durham soon.

I love Almost Famous. I think it's one of the better uses of a big ensemble cast that size. I like a lot of Cameron Crowe's earlier works. Say Anything is really good, and I like Jerry Maguire. The only other one I've seen is We Bought A Zoo. Predictable and maybe a little too sappy, but I still enjoyed it. Actually, that might be how I'd describe Cameron Crowe's filmmaking in general.

The performances of The Judge are definitely very good. Robert Downey Jr does an especially good job, even more than Robert Duvall in my opinion. Unfortunately, I didn't think the script was very good, so no matter how good of a job they were doing, it wasn't fully clicking with me. It's also two hours and twenty minutes but felt like it should have been under two hours.

But it's always nice to see RDJ in roles that aren't Iron Man from time to time haha do you have some favorite RDJ non-superhero movies?

I highly recommend Tropic Thunder (obviously, since it's in my top 5). Robert Downey Jr is very good in it. Another one that I like with him is Kiss Kiss Bang Bang. I think Robert Downey Jr. has the talent to break the shadow of Iron Man, as do most of the people playing superheroes, but I don't know if scheduling will let them totally break free until those movies have wrapped up their stories, if that makes sense.

Hot Fuzz was excellent. It's only the second Edgar Wright movie I've seen (Shaun of the Dead was the other) but I think he might become one of my favorite directors. His films have so dang much energy into them it's hard not to like them.

I thought Ashton Kutcher did a decent job as Steve Jobs (no pun intended) for what the film was. My main problem with the film was that it felt mostly like dramatic reenactments of things without much of a story, and that it felt like they were basically just saying "Steve Jobs was amazing". What looks interesting to me about the Michael Fassbender one is how it looks like they're diving more into how difficult he could be to work with. I'm also looking forward to it because I like Seth Rogen and think he should have more opportunities to show he can do more than just stoner comedies.

What about you? Are you looking forward to the Fassbender one? And did you see the Kutcher version?

I agree, I like it when comedic actors take on dramatic roles. They usually bring a naturalism to it that not all dramatic actors have.

The Spirit definitely looks a lot like Sin City, but it doesn't have as interesting of a story or performances haha the whole thing was kind of a mess. I don't usually take this into account when reviewing/ranking a movie, but the best quality was that there were a lot of attractive women. And I think they even did some post-production to accentuate their attractiveness even more. But even having Eva Mendes, Scarlett Johannson, etc. wasn't enough to put The Spirit in the top half of my chart haha

I've liked all of them, and think he's one of the best and most original directors working today.

I really hope Snyder adresses a lot of the philisophical questions the story has potential for, like he did the great job of doing in Watchmen. I just hope the movie isn't too bloated.

I saw the Suicide Squad trailer and thought it was Ok. Nothing really jumped out about it to me. I'm not a big fan of the way they're doing the Joker but I hope they prove me wrong and do a great job with him. What were your thoughts on that trailer?

Have you seen the trailer for the Point Break remake? It looks pretty rough haha but I'm glad you liked the original. I'll hopefully check it out soon.

I really like Emma Stone in Birdman too, but I think I would have to say her favorite performance of mine might be in Zombieland. Even though on the first it might just look like a standard comedy performance, if you look closer, she's really playing it with this cool balance of toughness and frailty.

I think my favorite heist film is probably Ocean's Eleven, because I love the team dynamic they put together. Although that's not really a bank robbery, so I think The Town is my next choice. Ben Affleck's really impressed me as a director, so if he really does get to direct a Batman movie I think it will really help out that franchise.

A lot of people don't like Ocean's 12, but I only saw it recently and thought it was pretty decent, but it's still probably my least favorite Ocean's movie. I also like Ocean's 13, but sometimes it feels like they're trying to do too much. But I like all three of them.

I really liked the first half or so of the Batman v. Superman trailer. But once Wonder Woman and Lex Luthor showed up, I started getting the feeling that the movie is going to be too full of a lot of different things. I really like Jesse Eisenberg, but based on the trailer footage, I'm really concerned about his portrayal of Lex.

I thought the Suicide Squad trailer was pretty cool, I'm interested in seeing more of it.

I thought the Deadpool trailer was pretty funny, but like you I'm not as excited about it as everyone else.

I was surprised they didn't show any moments of bald Lex. Makes me wonder if it's only something that happens toward the end.

I also thought the announcement of Star Wars Episode VII was kind of ridiculous. But then they hired JJ Abrams. And more and more announcements came forward, and I got more and more interested. I think that part of what I like about Abrams' new Star Trek movies is that they feel like they're combining Star Trek with a Star Wars kind of style, which I think is what makes Abrams such a good choice. And every piece of footage they released for this movie looks really good to me.

I'm not a huge Star Wars geek, so I think I'll be able to go into this new one with reasonable expectations. A lot of people like Empire Strikes Back the best, but I think my favorite is actually A New Hope. I like all three of the original trilogy, and am okay with episode III, and then don't really like the other two. Which one's your favorite?

I think I'm mixed on Ant-Man. I might have to let my opinion of it sit for a few more days, but I think some of the pacing was weird, where it was sometimes moving really fast and then sometimes really slow. I think part of it is that Edgar Wright's script and Peyton Reed's direction had slightly different visions. But I thought the performances from everyone were really good, especially Michael Pena, who continues to impress me in everything he's in.

I've been meaning to watch Fury. Hopefully I'll get to it soon.

I think they kept a lot of Edgar Wright's stuff, and then hired Adam McKay and Paul Rudd to go in and rewrite a few scenes here and there. But in a lot of the montages especially you can see an Edgar Wright style, like in Shaun of the Dead.

Do you have any opinions on Edgar Wright?

I've seen Bernie and School of Rock, but I really need to see Boyhood, Dazed and Confused , Waking Life and the Before trilogy.

I really, really need to redo my whole chart. It's a mess, especially my top 20.

How was Zero Dark Thirty?

Kung Fury might be one of the most ridiculously hilarious movies I've seen. Crazy doesn't even do it justice. Now I may be wrong, but I think that they have already started production on a full feature. But again, I may be wrong.

Personally I never cared for ID. It's one of those ultra patriotic american movies that I cannot get behind. So what, the entire rest of the world just waits for the Americans to strike back? Sounds pretty ridiculous to me.

The Fighter was great. Bale was just outstanding as was Melissa Leo. Wahlberg was solid in the lead too. However the main problem I have with the film is that it takes like half the movie for it to really get interesting. Don't get me wrong, the first half was solid. It's just that it was a bit lacking for me. The second half was much better though. And the final fight was extraordinary. All in all I'd rate it a 8.5/10.

Now Casablanca on the other hand, was simply outstanding all around. It's one of those movies that I've put off watching for years, for no real reason at all other than my own laziness. And I should have watched this years ago because oh my dude-in-the-sky this was an excellent film. Simply one of the best I've seen. Everything from acting, to cinematography, to writing and to music was incredible. But really the things that pulled me into the film, was the fantastic story and incredibly good dialogue. This might be premature to say after just one viewing but, the dialogue in this film may be the best dialogue in a movie I've ever heard, behind only Pulp Fiction. And all the characters were great too. Especially Laszlo, Louis and Ilsa as well. But of course the best character in the film, and the best acting performance in the film goes to Humphrey Bogart as Rick Blaine - truly one of the coolest movie characters I've seen. He's like 1940's James Bond. Safe to say I really loved Casablanca. To me, it's a 10/10. I was spellbound after watching it. What do you think of it? And also, what did you think of the trailer to The Revenant? I mean, I cannot be the only one super excited for that one now, right?

I agree, Michael Pena and some other parts helped Ant-Man not feel as repetitive as other superhero movies. The more I've thought about Age of Ultron, the more I've felt a little disappointed by how, while there was some cool stuff in there, it felt like so much of what they've already done. And I think in the next few years when DC starts putting out two movies a year, plus Marvel's two a year, plus whatever Fox and Sony put out, it will be really hard to do anything original in a superhero movie. Do you think there will be an over-saturation of superhero movies?

I think Edgar Wright is one of my favorite directors. Hot Fuzz is my favorite of his films, but I think I have the four I've seen in my top 250. I think he brings a fun snappiness and hides jokes so you can get something new out of his movies every time you watch them.

I loved all the action and crime scenes in Heat. I could really see the influence that movie had on The Dark Knight. But I thought some of the relationship stuff, particularly with Al Pacino's character and his wife dragged. I get that they wanted to break up the action stuff, but some of it felt unnecessary or like it went on too long. Have you seen it?

I feel like The Revenant is the new Apocalypse Now, with all the production problems and all. But holy hell, it looks good. Easily one of my most anticipated films for the remainder of the year. Up there with The Force Awakens, Spectre and The Hateful Eight. I'm also a huge fan of DiCaprio and Hardy both, as well of Birdman, which I thought was one of the best films of 2014.

Batman V Superman looks amazing. The trailer was incredible. All of my fears disappeared after seeing the trailer. Affleck looks incredible as Batman. The first Batman to actually have the physique of Batman. The conflict seems to be in the center of the film. Even Gal Gadot and Jesse Eisenberg looks good in their respective roles as Wonder Woman and Lex Luthor. I guess my only fear is that it might not be the real Superman who's fighting Batman, but only Bizarro or someone. Other than that I think it looks fantastic. And also, team Bats FTW!

Suicide Squad might even look better. Great, great trailer. The tone, the music, everything was just perfect. Margot Robbie looks perfect as Harley, and Will Smith also looks great as Deadshot. But obviously the big WTF moment in the trailer was The Joker. And it looks as it's gonna be one hell of a Joker. I know a lot of people still have a problem with the tattoos and the teeth. But personally I don't care if it's executed well. The real important thing is how he will be. And, honestly, they couldn't have gotten a better actor for The Joker. Leto is one of the best actors on the planet. Perhaps the only one who could pull off a Joker as passionately as Ledger. The Joker is my favorite character of all time, so of course I'm expecting much here. But if anyone can pull off The Joker, it's Leto. I also love that they are taking the character in a completely different direction from Nicholson's and Ledger's Jokers. This a psychotic Joker. A Joker that we haven't seen before on the big screen. There are also rumors that the film will be rated R. How awesome wouldn't that be? An R-rated Suicide Squad starring The Joker.

What did you think of Ant-Man? Saw it about two days ago. I haven't added it yet because I'm re-making my whole list, and it's taking much longer than I expected.

Yeas, Bronson was bizarre and surreal, but I really liked it. The direction was one of the few things I liked about Drive, and it fits perfectly here. Tom Hardy was incredible as Bronson and the character was really interesting too. It dragged in some parts but that's my only complaint.

I'm still not quite sure how I feel about The Master. There was something about it that was almost hypnotic but at the end I still wasn't quite sure what it was about. Honestly, I think it was too subtle for my tastes.

Silence of the Lambs...wow what an incredible movie. It was the scariest, most shocking, suspenseful film I've ever seen. My palms were sweating and my heart was beating 100 miles per hour the whole time, which something I didn't think movies could do to me anymore. An instant favorite.

Could I ask you a favor? If you have Netflix, there's a movie on there called the Overnighters that I would really recommend. It's a documentary about a pastor in North Dakota who houses oil field workers in his church. That might sound simple but it's about a lot more and, it doesn't excatly play out like you think it will. If you don't have Netflix you might have a hard time finding it, but I think more people should hear about it and see it. Thanks!

How was Ant-Man?

I think that even if Marvel and DC both make good films, two from each studio, plus other studios, is just going to be too much. I think I'm already feeling the fatigue of superhero movies in general, and even though I like most of them, I'm not sure how I feel about having so many a year.

Part of why I wanted to see Heat was also because people said it influenced The Dark Knight. On a movie show I watch on YouTube, they had debated who had the better bank robbery scene between Heat and The Dark Knight. Now that I've seen them both, I'd probably give it to The Dark Knight. What about you?

I completely agree with you on Ant-Man. I liked it, but it sure wan't great in my opinion. I actually thought Paul Rudd was perfect as Scott Lang. Micheal Douglas and Micheal Peña were both perfect in their roles too. Evangeline Lily was good, really good in her role, but not perfect. I heard that they originally wanted Jessica Chastain for the role, who I thought would be a better fit.
So, in my opinion, the cast was great. But, I do have a lot of issues when it comes to story and character. First of all, the villain sucked. One of the worst Marvel villains ever. He was never just a normal person. He was always evil. And then they tried to forcefully squeeze in the brain-damage thing as a means to make you sympathize with him, but that didn't work at all in my opinion. His relationship with Hank Pym was criminally underdeveloped.
In fact, I thought every relationship except the Hank Pym-Scott Lang relationship were underdeveloped. And that whole super cliche "I'm now going to push you away, and lie to you, to protect you" between Pym Hope, made little sense in my opinion. He denied his daughter a relationship with her dad because he did NOT want her to know that her mother died a heroine's death?
And Scott's accomplices were as paper-thin as paper-thin characters go. A computer hacker who's foreign, and....some other dude. That sums up their whole characters.
The Ant-Man vs Falcon fight was by far the best part about the movie though. In fact, I thought that the action in general was much better than the action in Age of Ultron. The action in Age of Ultron was mostly just very uninspired killings of robots. The action in Ant-Man at least felt more relevant and exciting.

Even though there were never a serious challenge that Scott had to deal with during the entire movie. There was never that Batman Begins type of moment when Scarecrow sprayed Batman with the fear toxin, and then lights him on fire, when you just feel Batman's vulnerability. It never felt as if Scott was in an real danger.
The same happened with AoU, and the first Avengers as well. Marvel always lets their superheroes be superheroes. They never try to ground them and let them get their asses kicked. The only one I can think of is Winter Soldier, which is my favorite Marvel movie, as well as Guardians.

I used to love Marvel, but now they are just playing it safe. I loved The Winter Soldier, Guardians and the first Avengers (and Iron Man, but that was a while ago). But Age of Ultron felt way too safe. When you're watching The Dark Knight Rises for example, there's never that feeling that Nolan is playing it safe. He turned everything on itself in both The Dark Knight and Rises (this goes for every Nolan film basically. He always goes all-in). I'm tired of Marvel. I've developed a fatigue against Marvel movies recently. But I'm extremely excited to see the DC films. I have always preferred darker, more realistic and grounded films, above the fun lighthearted ones. That's probably why Empire is my favorite Star Wars movie as well.

I'll probably go see Ant-Man, but I can definitely see where you're coming from. All these Marvel movies are just starting to blend together and I'm getting sick of them.

I...guess I liked The Usual Suspects. I liked the screenplay but other than that, there wasn't anything really memorable. The acting and direction were serviceable I guess, but the characters were really bland and uninteresting. I'm really not sure why it's so acclaimed. And as for the twist, I was aware that there was one, but when it happened it didn't really suprise me. Overall, I was dissapointed. What are your thoughts on the film?

I didn't hate Sin City: A Dame To Kill For. I thought they improved on some things from the original (I like Josh Brolin as Dwight more than Clive Owen) and I thought Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Eva Green were good additions to the cast, but overall I felt like it was missing some of the fun of the original. Also there were times where I felt like the original actually looked better in terms of cinematography and effects, which was surprising. I don't think they need to make any more Sin City movies. What do you think of A Dame To Kill For and the future of the Sin City franchise?

Do you watch other movie themed YouTube channels?

I like Jake Gyllenhaal too, he's been making a lot of good choices in the last few years. I think my favorite performance of his is Prisoners. I don't think I'll see Southpaw, the trailer didn't interest me much, especially since it spoils the whole movie haha what's your favorite Gyllenhaal performance?

Yeah, I mean it's like when you're watching The Dark Knight Rises and Bane "breaks" (he doesn't really break his back, he more dislocates it or something like that) Batman's back, you really feel for Batman. It feels like his entire world is crumbling beneath him or something like that. You never get that feeling in Marvel movies except in Winter Soldier (which is my favorite Marvel movie).

As for Black Swan, I can tell you that it's a truly great film. I haven't seen much of Aronofsky's work, basically only Requiem for a Dream, but Black Swan is great. It really oozes with a very special, dark feeling, kinda like a Fincher movie. And man is Portman great in it. It was a while ago since I saw it, like a year ago, but I remember most of it. I can definitely recommend it if you're interested in it.

What about Southpaw? You seem to have greatly enjoyed that movie. I haven't seen it yet but - thoughts?

I watched The Guest, and I thought it was ok. The main character was fantastic, he walked that fine line between being creepy and charming perfectly. The score is awesome as well. The biggest problem for me is that it all builds to this huge twist and I found it very unsatisfying. It's a descent way to burn a couple hours, but I can't say I'd recommend it.

The Machinist was really good. It was very dark and disturbing, and it reminded me a lot of Barton Fink if you've seen that. There's one character that is so over-the-top he drags the whole movie down though, that's a bummer. And yeah, Christian Bale is REALLY thin in this. It's scary.

Oh yeah, totally forgot about Noah. I've seen Noah too. Wasn't a very big fan of it. But Requiem for a Dream is definitely the best Aronofsky film I've seen.

To me personally, Raging Bull is definitely the best boxing film. Nothing touches it, not even the fantastic Rocky. Million Dollar Baby and The Fighter are also really good. Other than those I haven't seen very many boxing films. None that comes to mind at least.

BTW, have you checked out the trailer for Spectre? I think it looks pretty sweet. Loved Skyfall so hopefully this one will be just as good, and with Waltz as the main villain, there are no reasons why it shouldn't be.

Pixels is not good, but I think people have been too hard on it. There are moments where it's hard to understand what the rules of the world they've created are, which is my biggest complaint. I thought Adam Sandler, Kevin James, and the rest of the cast were fine, but the script consistency was a little off.

I like some of the older games like Centipede, Donkey Kong, and Pac-Man, so it was fun to see some of them in the movie, although I think video game characters in general were treated with a little more respect in Wreck-It Ralph, while there were a few times in Pixels that it felt kind of gimmicky. What do you think of the classic games?

I have actually only seen Raging Bull once. But it grows on you still. At first I'm pretty sure I preferred Rocky over Raging Bull, but Raging Bull becomes better the more you think about it, while Rocky loses a little steam. I also think Scorsese should team up with DiCaprio and De Niro. Perhaps in something like a Scorsesefied remake of 12 Angry Men, starring twelve A-list actors and actresses in one room. Imagine that under Scorsese's direction. Safe to say that it probably wouldn't be as good as the original, but I would love to see it. Anyways that's basically one of my dream movies.

I haven't really seen too many Bond films at all to be honest. But I have seen and loved Casino Royale and Skyfall. I think Spectre looks brilliant, and with Waltz as a villain, I'm sure that it will be great.

I have seen a lot of Robert Rodriguez's work: Desperado, Sin City 1 and 2, Spy Kids 1-3, Machete 1 and 2, Planet Terror, From Dusk Till Dawn, The Faculty, and The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl. I am sort of split on most of his work, some of it I really like (Spy Kids 1 and 2, Sin City, Machete, The Faculty) and don't like some of the others. I like the tone he generally has in his films, but every now and then (Machete 2, Planet Terror, From Dusk Till Dawn) it feels like he is trying too hard to be outrageous and funny while simultaneously taking himself too seriously. What I think is most interesting about it, is it's a mix of when those movies came out, so there wasn't like a stretch of movies where I thought he was doing good work, then a stretch where he wasn't, it's all over the map.

I agree, I also prefer Michael Gambon, for all the reasons you said, but also because he makes the voice sound more natural. Sometimes I felt like Richard Harris was putting on this "old wise guy" type of voice.

I am torn on the spin-off movies. On the one hand, I think there's a lot more to the wizarding world that can be told. But on the other, I was largely satisfied with the complete story the Harry Potter saga told. I believe JK Rowling is pretty involved in the stories and screenplays for these movies so that makes me more willing to give them a chance. I just hope they don't feel like a big cash grab.

When I started listening to Jim Croce, I made a "Jim Croce Radio" on Pandora, and one of the songs that played on there was Eleanor Rigby. I'd always known about The Beatles and a few of their songs, but after hearing that I really started exploring more of their stuff. That was when I was really starting to get more into movies, music and culture in general so that really helped as well. I had a phase where I was obsessed with them for about a year, and they were all I would listen to haha. I still really love them but I've kinda moved onto other artists now.

Gigli was really bad, but actually not as bad as I'd heard it was. Don't get me wrong, it's a horrible movie, but I've seen much worse. The movie was pretty competently directed and acted, the story wasn't convoluted or boring, I dunno. It definitely doesn't deserve the title " worst movie ever made". I think why it's so hated is probably because of the way it handles homesexuality, which is a reasonable complaint, because it does an awful job representing it.

I hope to see Se7en this week, but other than that, I'm not sure. I started watching American Horror Story so I'll probably just binge-watch that until I finish it haha. What are your favorite TV shows?

I'm not a big horror fan either, but I'm really liking American Horror Story so far. There are a few scary moments, but mostly it's the writing that gives off a creepy vibe. And I like how it's really about not being able to outrun the sins of your past, I like stuff like that.

Yeah, I really like The Andy Griffith Show and Everybody Loves Raymond, not a huge Seinfeld fan though. Some of my other favorites are The Big Bang Theory, The Office and Breaking Bad, which is my favorite show by faaaaar.

Hmmm...That's a good question. Based on my chart, it's probably Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs (my 30/1947). It's probably a little too high on my chart right now, but I remember thinking it looked dumb and like a generic animated movie aimed solely at kids. Then I caught part of it on TV one day and was impressed with how clever a lot of the jokes were, especially quick, visual jokes that were sometimes in the background. After finding out it was the same directors that did 21 Jump Street, it also impressed me with the range those directors can handle.

Which movie was the biggest surprise for you?

Sorry for taking such a long time to writing a response.

Scorsese actually has a lot of very interesting upcoming projects. Obviously there's Silence with Liam Neeson and Andrew Garfield and Adam Driver (or as he shall be known for the rest of his career: Kylo Ren), as you mentioned. But there's also Devil in the White City. It actually was just announced just a few days ago that Leonardo DiCaprio will be playing a serial killer in that film. So that definitely sounds very exciting. He also got this mob film coming up called The Irishman starring Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, Joe Pesci and Harvey Keitel. Now that alone already got me furiously excited.

Now, Lone Survivor is a rather solid action, you know, war type film. It contains fierce action scenes and it is actually very intense and thrilling. Ultimately it isn't really anything that I'd write home about, but it certainly is worth a watch if you're interested in the film.

Thoughts on fantastic 4 ?? its really getting bad reviews and is also floaping at box office.

AS far as I know, all the seasons of American Horror Story are standalone. I wouldn't really know though, I just finished the first season and man, what a dissapointing ending. It was like something you'd see in Goosebumps or something. I was really let down.

I definitely agree about The Office being the best early on. Once Michael left it lost a lot, he was my favorite part of that show.

I've only watched Breaking Bad once, but I'm sure if I started over I'd breeze right through the whole thing again. You really should watch it, I promise you won't regret it.

How is Fan4stic? Is it really as horrible as everyone is saying?

Interesting, I haven't seen Pride and Prejudice. I haven't seen Blue Valentine either. I tried to catch it before it left Netflix, but didn't get to it in time.

How was Fantastic Four? I've heard a lot of negative things haha had you seen the ones from the 2000s too?

Ferris Bueller was a lot of fun! For some reason it felt like Cool Hand Luke and Annie Hall had a baby and sent it through high school haha. I kinda wish I would've seen it sooner though, if I grew up with it I think it might've been one of my favorite movies.

What were your top 5 movies from 2014?

I need to see more Hughes movies, but I'd rank the ones I've seen like:

1. Ferris Buellers Day Off
2. Home Alone
3. Christmas Vacation
4. Uncle Buck
5. Home Alone 2 (need to rewatch those last 3)

I still want to see The Breakfast Club and 16 Candles.

My top 5 of 2014 would probably be:

1. Whiplash
2. The Lego Movie
3. Sharknado 2: The Second One (don't judge me haha)
4. Nightcrawler
5. The Overnighters

I really liked The Raid 2, Gone Girl, The Grand Budapest Hotel and The Winter Soilder. I still need to see Boyhood, Birdman, Fury, Snowpiercer, Frank and The Babadook.

What are your top 5 movies from the 2010's?

Yeah, your recap of Fantastic Four pretty much matches up with what I've heard so far. It would be interesting to see if Josh Trank's director's cut for it ever comes out, but based on the current state of his relationship with Fox, I don't think it's very likely.

I had heard a lot of negative things about the Poltergeist remake going in, but I think people were too hard on it. I thought the original was kind of blah, but had some decent scares mixed in. This one felt the opposite, where most of the non-ghost related things felt like a significant improvement, but it has the same issue I think most horror movies do, where they bring the audio way down before they try to scare you with a loud noise. Overall, I thought most of the acting was good--except for some of the kids (but they also had some pretty weird dialogue to try to pull off)--and I liked the quicker pace compared to the original, but it didn't feel as creepy.

I see you got around to Magic In The Moonlight. What did you think?

I think that a full director's cut would at least answer a lot of the complaints people have about the film, but I don't know if they would necessarily be well-received either haha I did see Chronicle. I really liked the story and the acting, but I don't care for the found footage style, so I didn't really like the movie overall.

I've seen a few Woody Allen films but he has so many that it's probably not a huge percentage haha I've seen some of the good and some of the bad. I'd definitely recommend Midnight in Paris, which is my favorite of his movies. Annie Hall I think is also very good, worthy of all the praise it gets. Hannah and Her Sisters is also a pretty decent watch, but I'd go with the first two first.

Sharknado 2 knew what it was and did its job perfectly. I watched with some friends and we all just made fun of its ridiculousness while watching it so that added a lot. I know it's an awful movie, and I probably don't deserve to call myself a film fan, but I can't think of many movies I've had more fun watching.

After I asked you I realized I could have just looked at your top 10 haha! Oh well...

My top 5 of the 2010's would be:

1. Whiplash
2. The Tree of Life
3. The Lego Movie
4. Cloud Atlas
5. Inception

There are some of these I need to rewatch, but these are all great films.

Rewatched The Overnighters recently and man... what an emotional ride. The ending nearly moved me to tears. Really looking forward to your thoughts on it.

What was your favorite decade for movies (besides the 2010's haha) and your 5 favorite movies from that decade?

Nice! My favorite decade would probably be the 70's, and my top 5 would be:

1. Taxi Driver
2. Barry Lyndon
3. Apocalypse Now
4. Days of Heaven
5. The Godfather

Something about that era man, it seems like people were finally realizing what film could be and they just started pumping out masterpieces. Also, I gotta give huge praise to Francis Ford Coppola, the guy was a complete beast in the 70's! I think he just made 4 films that decade, but they were all nominated for best picture and are considered some of the greatest movies of all time!

As far as other decades go, there aren't really any I dislike. The 80's wasn't spectacular IMO, but we still got Raging Bull, Full Metal Jacket and A Christmas Story. I'd agree with you, my favorite films come from all decades.

How was The Wrestler and Straight Outta Compton? Do you listen to NWA?

I totally agree with you. Toy Story 3 wrapped things up so nicely, and even though the shorts and the TV specials that have come out since have been pretty decent, the way the third one ended was a perfect way to close out what I think is the best trilogy of all time.

That being said, a love story between Woody and Bo Peep sounds interesting. And if anyone can do it, and make it as emotional as the previous films, it's Pixar, so I'm holding out hope. It will be interesting to me to see which other characters they choose to bring back and integrate into the story.

Is there other news from D23 that excites you? It's funny how no footage has really leaked out since Disney has such better security than Comic-Con haha

I don't really listen to NWA but I like Straight Outta Compton and F*** tha Police. I'm really excited to see the movie now!

I'll listen to certain rap songs like Smoke Weed Everyday, Still Dre, X Gon Give it to Ya, and Remember the Name when I want to feel like a badass haha. The rapper I'm really into though is Eminem, he's one of my favorite artists. His music, especially Stan, really changed how I viewed rap and music in general. My other favorite songs of his are Lose Yourself (obviously), Rap God, Without Me, The Real Slim Shady, When I'm Gone and Till I Collapse. Do you like him or any other rappers?

I heard a rumor they were planning on making another trilogy of Toy Story movies, but I think that it's just a rumor.

I kept up on a lot of the D23 announcements, but most of them weren't that exciting, although Star Wars Land sounds pretty cool and I hope a trailer for Captain America: Civil War comes out soon. The big thing for me though is that a trailer for Jon Favreau's live-action motion-capture The Jungle Book showed footage and got a standing ovation - a bigger reaction than anything else Marvel, Disney, Pixar, or Star Wars related that weekend. I really like Favreau and the cast he has assembled so I really want the trailer to be released.

I know some of the reaction to Colin Trevorrow doing Episode IX, but I think he'll do a good job. Even though Jurassic World had a few script problems looking back, Trevorrow's directing was still really solid, so I think he's a good choice.

How was Straight Outta Compton?

Escape From Alcatraz was pretty good. The story was good and Clint Eastwood was his usual awesome self. I'd recommend it if you're a fan of Clint Eastwood and Don Seigels other collaborations.

As for The Wolf of Wall Street... I loved it! Just 3 hours of over-the-top, excessive, messed up cinema. As far as entertainment goes, there aren't many films I've seen that rival it. The direction and editing were incredible, and it was the best DiCaprio performance I've ever seen.

I started listening to some Kid Cudi after you recommended him and I really like him! Pursuit of Happiness and Day and Night are my favorites of his.

Do you like Rage Against the Machine?

Interesting. I've heard almost unanimously positive reviews of Straight Outta Compton so I may need to check it out.

I thought Fury was fantastic. The dynamic of those five actors was great and I liked the way the action was handled, so between Fury and End of Watch, I'm even more excited for Suicide Squad. Logan Lerman blew me away with his performance and I thought he should have gotten more recognition.

Schindler's List I also really enjoyed. The performances were solid and the cinematography was beautiful. But unlike Fury, I don't know if I could ever see myself watching it again.

According to Flickchart, my top 5 war films would be Tropic Thunder, Saving Private Ryan, Life Is Beautiful, Edge of Tomorrow, and Fury. But I'm not sure Tropic Thunder and Edge of Tomorrow really count, so I'll throw Three Kings and Brothers in to the other two spots. With an honorable mention to another Spielberg war film, Empire of the Sun.

What are some of your favorite war films?

I don't own any of Rage Against the Machines album's, and am more song based like you. That being said though, a lot of their songs are favorites of mine. Killing in the Name, Testify, Bulls on Parade, How I Could Just Kill a Man... I love all of 'em.

Forrest Gump... it was alright, but honestly I think it might be the most overrated movie of all-time. I thought the main character was likable enough, but the story and filmmaking almost felt like a big-budget Hallmark movie, it was cheesy, sappy, and sometimes downright manipulative. And Jenny is one of the most unlikable characters in a movie I've seen in a while. My favorite part was Lt. Dan, he made the movie. I don't know how this won best picture in a year where Leon: The Proffesional, The Shawshank Redemption and Pulp frikkin' Fiction where released. Those are all MUCH bett
