A great silent gangster film. Strernberg has a very unique visual style, reminds me of Chaplin's use of lighting and editing. Also, this is my 2500th film.

Amazingly near perfect noir. I never saw the studio version but this re edit is just magnificent.

This is a brilliant movie, like a spaghetti western and a James Bond film wrapped in a kimono. I can see why it's on the 60s list, it just oozes with that 60s bravado and charm. Kurosawa is just plain brilliant, all his films are so well put together. The actors are all great, the editing is done very well, the music is so great, even something light like this film is damn near perfect. Kurosawa was a brilliant craftsman and very careful about how he put his films together even the small ones.

It was great, and heartbreaking. The English did not harm the film at all, I thought it was a nice throwback to the old 50s and 60s epic films.

Incredibly uplifting story, which is a nice change from the usual. Great acting, direction, art design and music.

I really liked this film, it's a very visual and deeply layered adaptation of the novel, and focuses on the societies loss of feeling and thought because they had no books to ignite any passion; and keeping everyone drugged so they can't do anything about it. Well written, directed and acted, I liked Truffaut's use of camera angles, color's and the very unique view of the future. Julie Christie is wonderful, the score is great, I really don't know why this film isn't more popular, maybe it's too deep or weird even for sci-fi nerds.

Really dark and brutal take on the spy genre. Probably much truer than other spy movies.

It has a lot about the violent sub culture and what humans are capable of.

This would have been better if it didn't exist. Boring and predictable.

Brilliantly conceived and brilliantly executed. Super cool heist film. Montand, Volonté and Delon are damn near perfect.

brilliant in its execution. The writing, acting, everything was so sharp, like Hitchcock.

Very touching film, you feel as though you're right next to Merrick through his struggles.

It was fun and it felt like everyone was having a blast especially Christoph Waltz. Shout out to Edward James Olmos.

A good movie. Good direction and writing. It does feel like pacino and de niro aren't giving it their all but their still better than most out there.

Super 8 is Great!! It's hilarious, really fun and and full of the same magic that made so many early Spielberg films so much fun. Paying tribute to Spielberg and Romero, J.J. Abrams weaves a tale of loss, friendship and disaster in small town late 70s Ohio and just kills it. There's just the right amount of silliness; the camera work and special effects are spectacular as expected from Abrams and ILM. The music is awesome drawing on a huge selection of really good late 70s music. The acting is top notch; some of the best acting I've seen out of a group of kids since Harry Potter. Anyone who thought this movie is not worth seeing is wrong. The trailer just doesn't do the film justice. There is so much more heart and character that doesn't come across in the trailer. I don't want to spoil anything for you, so I won't go into any detail but if there's one film you see this summer make it this one. If that doesn't hook you, believe me the best part of the movie is during the credits.

Brilliant, visual poetry. The special effects were great for the time period.

Brilliant! I think it's Hitchcock's best and possibly perfect.

Decent Western. Felt like there were some issues with the Indian boy and mother that could have been explored. A lot of people don't like the american westerns due to a lack of realism and some of that is true, but this one felt real enough.
