2001: A Space Odyssey (1968)
A True Cinematic Masterpiece by a Master Director!
2001: A Space Odyssey is among one of the GREATEST sci-fi movies of all time and has remained a masterpiece for many decades and for so many reasons! This film has so many mind-blowing visuals, fantastic classical music, phenomenally hidden themes, masterful direction and great storytelling. Directors like Stanley Kubrick have a special place in the history of filmmaking. Kubrick is one of the VERY few directors that delivers an extremely unique presence to ALL of his films with his direction and he also knows what his audience wants out of filmmaking and I absolutely LOVE that! Even if you watch 2001 by 1st viewing and even if you don't fully understand the film, it's SOO unforgettable to step away from and it's due to unforgettable direction, plot, music and breathtakingly GORGEOUS visuals and of course the Apollo moon landing! 2001 also captures an amazing and stunning feel of mankind interfering with something that's unknown and very fascinating and we've had so many films that have portrayed 2001: A Space Odyssey and NONE of them have been able to top this film. One thing that's very interesting about Stanley Kubrick is that he will show you AMAZING and FASCINATING images in all of his films and they absolutely keep you in on edge and focused and that's because all of Kubrick's films have a feel of "realism" and 2001: A Space Odyssey is a perfect execution! The Shining, A Clockwork Orange, Full Metal Jacket and Dr. Strangelove along with all of Kubrick's other films have MANY things that make you follow along with their stories and messages and visuals and elements and that's what makes Stanley Kubrick a Master in cinema history! As a person who LOVES cinema and is a nerd when it comes to film, I'm gonna be completely honest when I say that "In my mind, 2001: A Space Odyssey is the BEST directed movie I've ever seen!" 2001: A Space Odyssey is a film that has stood the test of time HIGHLY successfully with many mind-blowing and unforgettable elements that makes this film a TRUE masterpiece! 2001: A Space Odyssey gets a 10/10!
A pleasant surprise, and this is coming from a person who doesn't much care for Teen Titans Go!
When I first heard that they were making a movie of Teen Titans Go, I didn't have any expectations for this movie AT ALL, considering that I'm not a fan of Teen Titans Go! However, I decided to take my little sister to the movies today and watch this film and I gotta say that this movie surprised me quite a bit! I thought this was way better than the actual Titans Go series and I was really having fun with this movie! The humor in this film isn't just for kids as well. Sure, there are a bunch of poop and fart jokes, but there are many things for adults to enjoy in this movie as well and for that, this movie was a plus! I also love how this movie was able to get away with referencing other DC movies and even some from other superhero universes and I found that really funny and it was also clever! The flaws that I had with this movie are simple. I think that when some musical numbers or poop and fart jokes happen, it takes away from the core of the story and I did honestly think some of the songs were catchy and enjoyable, but I thought there was a little too much of the poop and fart jokes. Overall, Teen Titans Go to the movies surprised me and it's not gonna be one of the best action movies of the year or become a masterpiece, but it is really enjoyable and I'm gonna give it an 8.5/10!
As a HUGE Jurassic Park fan, I liked this movie honestly!
Now listen up, before I talk about Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, I just wanna say that I am a HUUUUUUGE Jurassic Park fan and I honestly didn't want to get too excited about Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom and after seeing it I thought that it was pretty fun. Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom was a fun enough sequel, but in my opinion it is not as good as the classic Jurassic Park, The Lost World or Jurassic World, but I thought it was way better than Jurassic Park 3! There were a lot of elements of Fallen Kingdom that I appreciated and others that I didn't appreciate and most of that has to do with the 2nd act of the movie and the characters. Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard are good in this movie and honestly Bryce Dallas Howard has a lot more things to do in this film! I could've lived without some of the new characters they decided to throw into the film, but they were fun enough and some of them were useful and others were just there to be a comedic coward, but the villains.....WOAH let me tell ya about the villains in this movie! Not good, at all and they honestly feel almost like cartoonish villains in a PG-13 movie. However, I thought the Indoraptor was pretty cool and a little better than the Indominus. I liked how the film didn't go to overboard with showing the genetic hybrid that much and only showed in the scenes that it should be in. And I also like how the film's called "Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom," because there are elements of this movie that give this movie the perfect title and I'm not spoiling any of these elements! And in my opinion, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is not going to be for every Jurassic Park fan or even everyone in general. Because of the choices the creators made in this film and the direction by J.A. Bayona, this film is it's own story that knows it's not similar to the other Jurassic Park movies, so there will be a mix between a lot of people who love this movie and a lot of people who hate this movie. I personally enjoyed Fallen Kingdom and I can't wait to see it again and I actually would recommend watching it, even if you think it might be bad, because I think that EVERY movie deserves a chance to be seen by audiences before its judged. I'm gonna give Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom an 8/10!
The BEST Mission Impossible and the BEST action movie of the 2010s!
I had a lot of high expectations for Mission Impossible: Fallout! I went into this movie expecting a really great sequel and I gotta say walking out of the cinema I was at, Mission Impossible: Fallout is one of the BEST action movies in a very long time! This movie makes a lot of other action movies of the 2010s feel like just thrill rides for the young. This movie knows how to have great direction, a great storyline and masterful editing and action sequences that keep you in the edge of your seat from opening to finish! Tom Cruise is excellent in this film and this is definitely his best role out of all of the M.I. films! Mission Impossible isn't just a movie with shootings and fighting in helicopters or chase sequences, this is actually an extremely layered movie with a lot of elements done right and hardly any scenes that feel out of place! All of the actors are phenomenal in M.I.F. and honestly I can't wait for the next sequel if there is one. Mission Impossible: Fallout is honestly in my opinion one of the best action films since the classics like "Die Hard," "Predator" and "Aliens" and it also rivals with some of the modern day action movies like "The Dark Knight," and ""Mad Max: Fury Road!" Mission Impossible: Fallout is everything you need out of a Mission Impossible movie and it's definitely worth your time at the movies and Mission Impossible: Fallout gets a 10/10!
One of the GREATEST movies of all time!
I remember when I first saw Alien as a teenager. This movie scared me to the core and it's STILL scary and very suspenseful to this very day! I love movies from all genres and horror is one of my favorite genres in cinema history and when it comes to horror movies, Alien is DEFINITELY one of the greatest ones of all time! Ridley Scott's direction in Alien has a HIGHLY suspenseful feel throughout the entire film and it somewhat makes you feel disturbed and uncomfortable and that's one of the reasons why this film is so iconic! Sigourney Weaver as Ripley takes this ENTIRE film from opening to finish! She was EXCELLENT in this film and this is definitely one of the greatest roles I've seen in ANY movie which makes this one of the greatest roles in cinema history! All of the other characters such as Brett, Parker, Kane, Dallas, Ash and Lambert played by Harry Dean Stanton, Yaphet Kotto, John Hurt, Tom Skerritt, Ian Holm, and Veronica Cartwright were really interesting and engaging characters throughout the entire run time of the film and the acting in Alien is ABSOLUTELY mind-blowing which was another reason on why this movie is insanely scary! Now let's talk about the creature in Alien known as The Xenomorph, this thing is just.................ABSOLUTELY TERRIFYING AND AWESOME! The Xenomorph has to be one of the scariest things I've ever seen in ANY movie in my entire life! Ridley Scott also decided to not show this creature for the majority of the film which was a little more terrifying, because you never really expect or know when this thing is going to come or what it's going to do to the crew or what the creature looks like when you first watch Alien and it is just GENIUS AND FANTASTIC SUSPENSE FILM-MAKING! Something else that I also love about Alien is of course the iconic chest burst scene! Most of you who have seen Alien know what I'm talking about, but when they were shooting the chest burst scene, the actors were 100% unaware of what was going to come out of John Hurt's chest so when the Xenomorph burst out of his chest, their reactions were legit and real and that's just so awesome! This movie also holds one of the GREATEST jumpscares in cinema history when Dallas is in the air shafts and out of NOWHERE he runs into the Xenomorph and you don't actually see him die by it, but you see it appear and you just hear this EXTREMELY LOUD screeching sound and static sounds in the background and every time I watch this movie, that jumpscare STILL sends chills down my spine and it's a jumpscare done right! There's also something else I absolutely love about Alien when the crew finds out that Ash was a robot that was sent by the company to send this life form back to earth and it is a VERY clever twist that was HIGHLY unexpected and it's all done by the genius mind of Scott and the tension he brings in this film! Alien is one of my all time favorite movies and it has stood the test of time VERY SUCCESSFULLY and it has inspired many film-makers and it will continue to do that, because it's a timeless masterpiece and a classic film and Alien DEFINITELY gets a 10/10!
An underrated horror classic!
When you think of slasher movies, the first things that pop into your head are movies like Halloween, A Nightmare on Elm Street, Friday the 13th and from there there have been many other slasher films. Candyman is a very well written as well as well directed horror film that doesn't really deserve to be SO underrated in the horror genre! Candyman is an interesting slasher himself as well and the reason why he exists is because people believe in him which makes this film lead to a very strong story with solid acting and engaging characters. Virginia Madsen as Helen Lyle was very good in this film. Her character was very engaged with the myth of the Candyman and she was a very likable character who wanted to know more about the legend of Candyman. Tony Todd takes this entire film as Candyman! He did a FANTASTIC job in this film and there were moments where I actually found his character very creepy and disturbing. The back story of Candyman is also very well written and I'm gonna talk about it without spoiling anything, but his back story really hooks you and actually almost makes you feel bad for this man. Now Candyman is not one of the greatest slashers of all time, but it's a horror film that does NOT deserve to be criminally underrated in the genre of horror! The acting in this film is mostly solid, the characters are good and the story is very clever and if you are a fan of horror movies and you want to check out some very underrated horror movies, Candyman is the movie for you! Candyman is a very well written and directed horror movie that deserves to be treated as a classic and should be seen by almost EVERY fan of horror! I'm gonna give Candyman an 8/10.
One of the BEST Disney films I've seen in a while!
When I first heard about this movie back in late 2015, I was kind of interested in seeing it in 2016. I knew NOTHING and I mean nothing about what this movie was going to be about! I stayed away from some trailers and I wanted to experience this movie myself and I was ABSOLUTELY touched by this movie! Zootopia is a fantastic film that has breath taking animation, AMAZING characters and a very clever story! I absolutely LOVE this movie! I love Judy Hoops and Nick Wilde who are both played by Ginnifer Goodwin and Jason Bateman! These are a great example of characters in animated movies! These two characters weren't your average Dreamworks movie characters, these characters were VERY well written and very mature! I also loved Idris Elba as Chief Bogo. His character was also very well written and mature. In fact, this entire movie brings great and mature messages for both kids and adults! Certain things that happen in Zootopia deal with everyday crimes, segregation and racism, even some signs of drug use in this film! Yeah and I mentioned that this was a Disney movie! Zootopia is not only a Disney film that kids can enjoy, the entire family will have a blast watching this movie and to be honest, adults might enjoy this film more than the kids! Zootopia surprised every single body part inside of me and this is definitely a film that will become a Disney masterpiece and a classic as time goes on and a film that EVERYONE can watch and have fun with and i'm gonna give Zootopia a 10/10!
The Birds (1963)
One of the scariest movies I've ever seen and one of Hitchcock's greatest!
When it comes to horror movies, I love the genre and I don't usually get scared of horror movies, but MY GOD this was a TERRIFYING experience as a kid! Alfred Hitchcock, the master and the one and only master of suspense and horror has brought us many films and his most memorable and iconic films are Psycho and this film. The Birds is definitely one of the scariest movies I've ever seen and I think some reasons for that are that Alfred Hitchcock takes the suspense in this movie very dark if he needs to in certain scenes. There was also no composed score or music in this film which actually made the film feel a little realistic and it STILL terrifies me today! The acting in this film is top notch and the story is pretty solid and I thought some of the characters such as Melanie played by Tippi Hedren and Mitch Brenner played by Rod Taylor were really fleshed out throughout the majority of the film. But for me, the scariest thing about this film is that you don't know why these birds are attacking people. It's just the sense of horror that you feel in these birds when you see them hurting and killing people and it is absolutely TERRIFYING! The mystery behind this film on why these birds are going insane for no reason is absolutely frightening to watch and this has to be one of the greatest horror movies I've seen in a while and it's definitely one of the scariest movies, especially if it's made by a true legend of the genre. I love The Birds. The atmosphere of the film is disturbing and creepy and the movie itself is very scary and it's one of my all time favorite horror classics and i'm gonna give The Birds a 10/10.
A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984)
One of my all time favorite Horror movies!
Before the 80s, horror movies were very dark and original and they each had their own concepts and sub genres in horror. But when this movie came out, that changed EVERYTHING! Wes Craven has created one of the most iconic slashers in all movie history, ''Freddy Krueger'' played by the legendary Robert Englund and he is STILL known as one of the greatest to this day! This is a horror movie that knew what it was! It had likable characters, a VERY clever plot, great acting, and a very scary villain! I would actually consider A Nightmare on Elm Street the greatest slasher movie since Halloween! Nancy played by Heather Langenkamp was very good in this movie! I thought her character was very strong and was actually one of the few people in this movie who was ACTUALLY concerned about all these nightmares her and her friends are experiencing. Johnny Depp was also very good in this movie, considering that this was his FIRST movie he ever made, which lead him to a big career in the future and all of the other actors were good in this movie as well. A Nightmare on Elm Street REALLY surprised me when I watched it for the 1st time and as a horror fan, this is DEFINITELY one of my all time favorites! And as a low budget horror movie, this movie STILL works to this day! Some of the certain effects they used to make Freddy come to life in this film were very intense and scary and are still scary today! Wes Craven's A Nightmare on Elm Street is definitely a must watch for any horror fan and it is definitely a living masterpiece and of the best of the slashers and horror alone and of course I'm gonna give A Nightmare on Elm Street a 10/10!
The Babysitter (2017)
The Best Horror comedy since "Shaun of the dead''!
A couple nights ago, I went on Netflix because there was nothing to watch so I went to the horror section and ran into a movie called The Babysitter and I decided to watch it, because I had NO idea what this movie was about and MY GOD this movie surprised the HELL OUT OF ME! I really loved the story and plot behind the movie and I really enjoyed the characters in the film! I won't spoil anything, but let me just say that there are some REALLY bloody and inappropriate scenes throughout the film and it really kept me in my seat because of how entertaining this movie was! Even though this movie is known as a horror comedy, it's not really scary at all, but it is hilarious and sometimes can work as a horror movie I guess. This is definitely a great movie for the older audience and if you want to see a horror movie that will keep you in your seat throughout the entire running time, this is the horror movie for you my friend!
YouTube videos just don't get more retarded than this!
I remember when I first watched SMG4 and I instantly fell in love with the channel and I still love it today! This is a GREAT example of a channel that is SO lame that it actually works! When I think of SMG4, I think of it as a masterpiece of ALL retarded and I love every minute and every second of his videos and they just NEVER get old! I do enjoy the audio and dialog in every video and that's what makes SMG4 so retarded and hilarious to watch and today. The channel is currently at 1.7 million subscribers and it's VERY impressing that a channel with great and retarded content could get sooooo much attention and SMG4 is DEFINITELY one of greatest YouTube channels I've watched in a LONG TIME!
One of the GREATEST movies of ALL TIME!
If you haven't seen this film yet, there's something wrong with you! I have talked to a lot of my friends and asked them if they have seen Jaws and 90% of my friends said NO! Jaws is a film that has inspired MANY movie makers and is known as the 1st blockbuster film and one of Steven Spielberg's BEST movies! Jaws was released in 1975 and was one of the first movies to make A LOT of money at the Box Office and it became a HUGE success and is STILL a fantastic movie to this day! Roy Scheider as chief Martin Brody is GREAT in this film and his character as well as other actors felt like they were playing as actual real life characters in life! I was also impressed by Richard Dreyfuss and Robert Shaw's performances in this film! All of the characters in the film felt like ACTUAL characters that are dealing with actual problems in life and that's one of the reason's why Jaws still works as a masterpiece! And yes, there are people today that say that the shark in Jaws looks fake. However, to this day the animatronic for the shark STILL works! And the main reason is that Spielberg didn't show the shark for the majority of the film which builds up the scare factor and it makes the experience A LOT more suspenseful and they also used some scenes with ACTUAL shark footage in Australian waters! There are many things that make this movie successful, but I can't do a review of Jaws without mentioning John Williams! His score for Jaws is absolutely beautiful and not just the scenes where the shark appears, but also certain scenes that take place in Jaws and the score brings up the suspense in the film! I am really surprised on the special effects they used in this film and they still hold up well to this day! Jaws is definitely one of the GREATEST movies of all time and it's a masterpiece and a timeless classic and it has stood the test of time VERY successfully and it's a film that EVERYONE has to see at least once and Jaws DEFINITELY gets a 10/10!
The Godfather (1972)
The Greatest movie I have EVER seen!
I have seen movies from all genres, but NOTHING and no other movie has surprised me more than The Godfather! This movie has EVERYTHING, a great script, unforgettable performances and characters, great acting and a MIND-BLOWING story line! I was really surprised on how serious this movie was made and the effort it took to make this into a successful masterpiece! Marlon Brando's performance in this movie is EXCELLENT! I was really enjoying every minute of his screen time and because of his Italian accent and also because he was a very interesting and likable character. The amount of drama that occurs in the film between the five families is absolutely heartbreaking and mind-blowing due to FANTASTIC performances brought to the film! I also really enjoyed Al Pacino's character known as Michael Corleone! I felt that he had a lot of charisma in almost every scene he was in and he tries to avoid being an idiot character and ends up being another likable character throughout the film! I think this is DEFINITELY a film that everybody should see at least once because it is definitely worth a watch for anyone who LOVES watching movies from any genre including myself. The Godfather is a film that HIGHLY surprised me and it's a classic and a masterpiece in movie history and it will stay as one of the GREATEST movie of all time and it has to be the greatest movie I have ever seen and i'm gonna give The Godfather a 10/10.
The Shining (1980)
My favorite Horror Movie of ALL TIME!
The Shining is one of those movies that you can watch over and over and over again and it NEVER gets boring, as a matter a fact, it gets better. Film makers such as Stanley Kubrick are geniuses in movie history. All of Kubrick's films have something special, they all have tension and they all feel real. Jack Nicholson's performance is ABSOLUTELY breath taking and this is possibly his BEST performance in his entire career. I also liked Shelley Duvall and I really don't understand why she received a lot of hate and abuse in this film, I thought she was great and I didn't have any problems with her or her character AT ALL! Danny Loyd as Danny Torrance is very mature for a child actor and his character is VERY interesting and Loyd has given one of the BEST child performances of all time! To me, The Shining is like no other Horror movie! I LOVE Horror movies and i'm a BIG fan of the genre from movie categories from slashers to monster movies, found footage, paranormal activity, doll movies, entities, and my favorite category, Psychological. The Shining is a gold star when it comes to horror movies or just movies in GENERAL! This movie is a masterpiece and a classic on so many levels and it's definitely a movie that everyone should see at least once in their life time! The Shining is a movie that has stood the test of time VERY successfully and it's my FAVORITE Horror movie of all time as well as one of my favorite movies of all time and i'm gonna give The Shining an A+
Jurassic World (2015)
FANTASTIC sequel to a franchise that I absolutely support and LOVE!
I was hyped out of my mind when the first teaser for Jurassic World came out in 2014 and while me being a huge fan of the franchise, I just had to go see this movie with my Mom and my sister. We went a couple weeks after the movie was released and it was possibly the greatest IMAX experience ever! I loved almost every minute and every second of Jurassic World and although it's not as good as the first Jurassic Park, I think it's equal to The Lost World which I also enjoyed. When we ere sitting in the theatre, I was already hyped when the Universal logo popped up on screen and that may tell you that I am a huge fan of the Jurassic Park Franchise and I love all of the movies minus Jurassic Park III which i'm not a huge fan of, but it's ok. And I had a BLAST with Jurassic World and I think the idea of adding the new hybrid The Indominus rex is genius! The story really hooked and caught my attention, the CGI was good enough, but I really think they should've added more animatronics and that would've improved the film because in this movie you will find A LOT of CGI and a very little amount of animatronics. The actors Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard were great! They're not as great as Sam Neil or Laura Dern from the first Jurassic Park, but they still are very good actors who play as very interesting characters known as Owen and Claire and their performances are really good in this film as well as the kids who are played by Nick Robinson and Ty Sympkins. Jurassic World really surprised me! In fact, it surprised everyone in my theatre. After the movie was over and the credits were rolling, the audience was clapping and I have NEVER in my life of any movie theatre experienced that kind of feeling and I felt very happy when I left the theatre. Jurassic World is a great sequel even it does not live up to the original,I respect it for what it is and I'm proud to be a fan of this franchise and i'm gonna give Jurassic World a 9.5/10.
My favorite Jurassic Park sequel
The Lost World: Jurassic Park may not be as good as the first movie, but it is one hell of a thrill ride! I love this movie because of how different it is compared to the first film. The first movie took place at a dinosaur theme park on an island known as Isla Nublar, while this one takes place in the wild on an island known as Isla Sorna. The actors Jeff Goldblum and Julianne Moore were FANTASTIC! I really enjoyed Goldblum's character Dr. Malcom just as much as I loved him in the first film! And Julianne Moore as Sara was a very interesting character as well and I loved the connection between these two characters and that she really had a lot to do in the film as well as all of the other actors. I am also REALLY surprised by the special effects in this film! The CGI and the animatronics they used in this film really made these dinosaurs come to life and it looked REALLY GROUNDBREAKING and still looks FANTASTIC to this day! I loved almost every minute of The Lost World and I wasn't disappointed at all! I also don't understand why films like this are so underrated and get a lot of hate, because if you watch and discover the story that certain movies such as The Lost World hold, then I can NOT see you not having fun with this film! I thought this was a great sequel even though it may not be as good as the original Jurassic Park, I still have a deep heart for The Lost World: Jurassic Park and i'm gonna give it a 9.5/10.
Jurassic Park (1993)
One of the GREATEST movies of ALL TIME!
What can I say that hasn't been said already? Jurassic Park is a film like no other! When this came out back in 1993, it was a huge hit with a great story and groundbreaking special effects and they STILL work to this day! To be honest, I would actually consider Jurassic Park my favorite Steven Spielberg film since Jaws. This movie is THAT good. As a matter a fact, it's GREAT! I'm a huge fan of dinosaurs and I also love watching prehistoric films such as The Land Before Time, Dinosaur and other films, but NO other dinosaur film in the world topped Jurassic Park. This movie is an instant masterpiece and a HUGE classic on so many levels and became a franchise later on with 3 sequels and 4 next year. And although the sequels don't really live up to the original, I really did enjoy watching The Lost World: Jurassic Park and Jurassic World. I thought they were great sequels to a successful franchise and for a grade, I would give The Lost World and Jurassic World both a 9.5/10. However, I'm not really a huge fan of Jurassic Park III, but it's ok and i'd probably give it a 7.0/10. But to this day, Jurassic Park is the BEST in the entire franchise and it has stood the test of time successfully and absolutely without a doubt Jurassic Park gets a 10/10.
