Favorite Tom Cruise Movie over 3 years ago
“Everybody hates Tom Cruise”.Really? If that is so,could it be because of his early huge success?.
I am a fan and think the “Mission Impossible”series great entertainment.But,his best performance was in “Collateral” where he worked so well with Jaime Foxx.
OVERLOOKED OR UNDERRATED MOVIES over 3 years ago
Rob Roy was a great movie that did get positive reviews on release.Such chemistry between Liam Neeson and Jessica Lange,and
Tim Roth did get an Oscar nomination.
WHO IS / WAS THE MOST BEAUTIFUL FILM ACTRESS EVER? over 3 years ago
I imagine one would choose someone who is also a good actress.When i saw the question,the first name that came to me was Juliette Binoche.
The Best Worst Films of All Time over 3 years ago
“Best Worst Films”? I’m not sure i get that.Recently i saw 2 very,very bad films On Demand.
“Body Of Evidence” and “Suspect”.Madonna was terrible in the former and,in the latter Cher gave perhaps the worst performance i’ve ever seen by an actress.Lawyers are supposed to be smart.
What's peoples Fascination with Trailers? over 3 years agoMust say i do look forward to trailers,even of films i’m not really interested in.Guess its because i just love films.After all,its just a matter of a few minutes and,as Bruce said,some are better than the films themselves.
Who do you think the most overrated director is? over 3 years ago
A great director’s films are about characters and that makes Sidney Lumet one of the best.Look at the amazing performances we have seen over the years.Could anyone else have made ‘Dog Day Afternoon’?Then there is the ensemble of ‘Murder On The Orient Express’.And to think that just 3 years ago he gave us great performances from Philip Seymour Hoffman and Ethan Hawke in ‘Before The Devil Knows…’

best dark comedies? over 3 years agoNATHAN W posted an interesting list with some brilliant films.‘Dr Strangelove’ should be declared the best dark comedy of all time. Funny,i had not thought of ‘Little Miss Sunshine’ as a dark comedy but,of course,it does qualify for the touching and funny way it handled serious issues.
List the most exemplary acting performance(s) over 3 years agoSome really excellent choices here.But such a list must have the great Gerard Depardieu in ’Cyrano De Bergerac ’.
What are your favorite child performances? over 3 years agoKeisha Castle Hughes
Are there any remakes that are better than the original film? over 3 years agoSpeaking of remakes,just saw the trailer for ‘Death At A Funeral’,directed by Neil LaBute.With Chris Rock and Danny Glover.Good cast,but WHY ? The original was kind of funny,not great.Plus wasn’t it released just 2 years ago?
Top 5 Coppola over 3 years ago1.The Godfather II 2.The Godfather 3.The Conversation 4.Apocalypse Now 5.The Rainmaker
is anybody excited for shutter island over 3 years agoI loved the book and can’t wait for the film.From early on in the book,it does seem that the part of Teddy is suited to DiCaprio.
Last movie you saw and rate it about 3 years ago‘Green Zone’—-9/10.—-Will please fans of action films,and those who care about the politics. And,there is Matt Damon! So great at keeping the audience involved in every scene.
2010 World Cup almost 3 years agoGO Argentina.Would love to see a France vs Argentina final.
Most violent films you've seen over 2 years agoNot the most violent (will need to think more about that),but the impact of ‘Chopper’ was quite profound.Mainly due to Eric Bana’s great performance and fact that it’s a true story.
Last movie you saw and rate it over 2 years agoNOWHERE BOY Director —Sam Taylor Wood 8/10
Portrayal of John Lennon’s teenage years in Liverpool up until the Beatles departure for Hamburg.
An entertaining coming of age story with wonderful performances.
Cautiva over 2 years agoI agree,it is an excellent film and should be included in FILMS.
A heartbreaking look at another outcome of Argentina’s 1976-1983 Dirty War and “los desaparecidos”,on the need to know the truth and how it changes one’s world.
