Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind20041001(full review)
Star Wars IV: A New Hope19771001(full review)
2001: A Space Odyssey1968953(full review)
28 Days Later2002953(full review) - Maybe, just maybe, Iím in the minority with this one but 28 Days Later is one of my favorite horror films of all-time. The world that Boyle paints is as devastating and frightening as it gets; the characters are more well-rounded and developed than the script actually gives them credit for; the scares and chills get to you by the utter feel of realism that shoots-out in every frame of this picture; and the message about who we are as humans and what weíll do to live-on in life is as heartbreaking and brutally honest as it can get. Definitely go out there and see it, not just to be scared, but also to be a bit enlightened as well.
Her2013953(full review)
Inception2010953(full review)
Children of Men2006907(full review) - Children of Men may be a bit too dark and depressing for some viewers, but the future that director Alfonso Cuarůn portrays is a dark, sad, and lonely time that he beautifully creates with great camera-work, compelling themes that add an extra layer to the story, and a couple of good performances from the cast, especially Clive Owen who has almost never been better.
District 92009907(full review) - District 9 has some very obvious plot holes, but is brings up many good points, and will leave you emotionally distraught with enough action to keep you on your seat amazed at how real it looks.
Donnie Darko2001907(full review) - Writer/Director Richardís Kelly debut feature may lose itís head with the mind-bending elements, but it has a perfect script, great performances, and a story that goes places you wonít be expecting, and wonít be disappointed in seeing anyway.
Jurassic Park1993907(full review)
Logan2017907(full review)
Matrix, The1999907(full review)
Prestige, The2006907(full review)
Star Trek Into Darkness2013907(full review)
Star Wars V: Empire Strikes Back1980907(full review)
Strange Days1995907(full review)
Terminator 2: Judgment Day1991907(full review) - Terminator 2: Judgment Day may have needed more human moments to convey that emotional depth it wanted to, but the action is amazing, the visual effects will have your eyes pop-out even today, and the stylized direction from James Cameron make this one of the best sequels of all-time.
The Martian2015907(full review)
Wall-E2008907(full review)
Alien19798520(full review) - Alien is definitely a sci-fi movie amongst sci-fi movies because it features a highly-stylized direction from one of the greats, Ridley Scott, who gives this film a very tense, dreary, and gloomy feeling the whole way through, and also keeps you guessing until the very end with scenes that are so iconic, I donít even need to mention here. Just get out and go see it before you see Prometheus, because something tells me youíre going to have to do your homework for this one.

Upstream Color20138520(full review)
Avatar20098036(full review) - Avatar has beautifully enchanting visuals, very effective performances, and an exciting if done before story, that has us forgetting about the real world we live in, with such a beautiful way.
Chronicle20128036(full review) - Chronicle isnít anything ground-breaking or new but the whole found-footage format works in its favor with a smart script, fast-paced vibe, and amazing performances by all three of these young dudes who do have bright futures in Hollywood, but then again, you never know.
Cloud Atlas20128036(full review) - Cloud Atlas is a very, very long movie thatís filled with plenty of stories, plenty of characters, and plenty of ambitions that itís set for itself, but is also a very entertaining and beautiful movie to watch as it never really leaves you bored when itís all over. It may not be the most emotionally-impacting viewing-experience youíll have this year, but itís a great watch that will probably take-up half of your day. But, in a good way at least.
Edge of Tomorrow20148036(full review)
Godzilla20148036(full review)
Hunger Games, The20128036(full review)
Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2, The20158036(full review)
Interstellar20148036(full review)
Mad Max19798036(full review)
Men in Black19978036(full review) - Men in Black is what you would expect: funny, light, filled with cool-looking special effects and monsters from Rick Baker, and entertaining but is also very light on plot, which doesnít really bring up many surprises as it goes along. However, itís a flick that will always be in my childhood.

Hunger Games: Catching Fire, The20137552(full review)
I Am Legend20077552(full review)
Minority Report20027552(full review)
Mist, The (2007)20077552(full review) - The Mist is well-acted, tensely written and directed by Frank Darabont, but is a let-down with its ending, some plot holes in the script, and the unintentionally hilarious special effects.
Robot and Frank20127552(full review)
Safety Not Guaranteed20127552(full review)
Star Trek Beyond20167552(full review)
Total Recall (1990)19907552(full review)

Abyss, The19897063(full review)
Chappie20157063(full review)
Contagion20117063(full review) - Contagion has an impressive ensemble and makes you feel as if you are in a world of fear and panic during this epidemic, but you never actually feel totally involved with this story, and more of just a watcher of Soderberghís annoying way of showing how much cool science stuff he knows.
Event Horizon19977063(full review)
Fifth Element, The19977063(full review) - The overall look, pacing, and feel of this movie has you laughing and having a good time, but The Fifth Element fails to go that full mile when itís script starts to fall apart by the last act.
Hot Tub Time Machine20107063(full review) - Donít expect any sense or reality from this film, but Hot Tub Time Machine works cause of its non-stop laughs, that border along terrible raunch, and funny satire.
Iron Man 220107063(full review)
Jurassic World20157063(full review)
Life20177063(full review)
Lucy20147063(full review)
Men In Black 320127063(full review) - Men in Black III may not be a threequel we needed to see nor does it bring anything new to this almost-forgotten franchise, but it does bring a lot of kid-oriented fun to it, with charming performances from the cast, a breezy pace, and a nice mixture of comedy and action that will remind you as to why this franchise worked so well in the first place.
Never Let Me Go20107063(full review) - If you are in happy mood and want to keep that going, then donít check out Never Let Me Go, because it is sad, empty (in many ways), and doesnít have any real moments of shining suns in the sky, but it is also beautiful to look at, a very moody piece that can really put you into its setting, and features a fine young cast that does a great job with all that their given.
Pacific Rim20137063(full review)
Prometheus20127063(full review)
Running Man, The19877063(full review)

Pitch Black20006581(full review)
Star Wars II: Attack of the Clones20026581(full review)
TRON19826581(full review)
Captain America: The First Avenger20116088(full review) - With a couple of writing brush-ups, Captain America: The First Avenger could have been even better, but instead works with awesome visuals, kick-ass action, and some very good performances that really add so much more to this film and get you even more pumped up for The Avengers film.
Ender's Game20136088(full review)
Ghost In The Shell19956088(full review)
I, Robot20046088(full review)
Limitless20116088(full review) - Director Neil Burger uses a lot of different and crazy visuals to effectively create a state of mind when on drugs, and Bradley Cooper is good in this lead role, but the script lets-down Limitless with its many missed opportunities, and confusing outcomes.
Lockout20126088(full review) - Predictable, dumb, and unoriginal, Lockout barely has any of the elements that makes a good, if memorable, sci-fi flick but with a reliable cast, quick pace, and fun action to boot, it doesnít do so bad when it comes to just killing some time.
Predestination20146088(full review)
Terminator Genisys20156088(full review)
War of the Worlds20056088(full review)
In Time20115597(full review)

Tomorrowland20155597(full review)
Transcendence20145597(full review)
Adjustment Bureau201150103(full review) - The tone may be all over-the-place, and the premise doesnít go the extra mile it could have, but the script is nice, and the overall genuine chemistry between Damon and Blunt has us really involved with this story.
Amazing Spider-Man, The201250103(full review) - The Amazing Spider-Man is exactly what you come to expect from a superhero flick: fun, action-packed, wild and crazy set pieces, baddies doing bad things, goodies doing good things, romantic love story, and some little shots of humor to liven everything up. Problem is, this is a reboot of a series that has already had its movies, and were ones that still stay stuck in my mind no matter what.
Chronicles of Riddick200450103(full review)
Divergent201450103(full review)
Eagle Eye200850103(full review)
Last Days on Mars, The201350103(full review)
Oblivion201350103(full review)
Planet of the Apes (2001)200150103(full review) - Planet of the Apes is cheesy, poorly written, and filled with sub-par performances from the impressive cast, but itís still an entertaining B-flick with great visuals, some fun action, and a feel of not taking itself too seriously which is good for any film about a world of apes.
Transformers: Age of Extinction201450103(full review)
Star Wars I: Phantom Menace 199945112(full review)
Jumper200840113(full review)

Time Traveler's Wife200935116(full review)
Host, The201330118(full review)
The Lazarus Effect201525119(full review)
Battleship201220120(full review) - Battleship definitely thrills with itís loud explosions and fun direction from Peter Berg, but the script takes away from everything else with its overt silliness, lines that seem like they are jokes in and of itself, and characters that donít make any sense but are just here to give us people to care about and root on to win the good fight. Michael Bay will be back people, get ready.
Stargate199420120(full review)
The Giver201420120(full review)
Gamer200915123(full review) - By taking a glorious amount of psychedelics beforehand one could actually have an enjoyable time with this crazy, all-over-the-place action thriller, but if sober, you may find yourself totally bored, annoyed, and just not entertained one bit by this dumb piece of failed satire.
