    "I could watch Pulp Fiction a hundred times and still not get tired of it. Between the bizarre but intriguing work of Quentin Tarantino, the star-filled cast, and the violently vivid story, it's a movie that never loses its draw. I highly recommend it to any fans of the crime genre."

    "The Godfather movie ad the series should be a must-watch for everyone. The first movie is the best one for me since it introduces the Corleone family and makes us to learn a whole new world. The movie is awarded many times by different organization and Marlon Brando was able to grab the Oscar for best leading role with his great character."

    "I really enjoyed this movie. The plot was interesting and not predictable. The dialogue and writing were sharp and believable. For the most part the acting was great with the possible exception of Will Smith. I wish they would make more movies like this and fewer superhero movies."

    "This is about a family with a tragic history. There is some funny scenes and also some gruesome ones. It gets pretty slow at times and doesn't tell a lot about life in the twenties. It is a horror movie, but with a redneck psycho who has a strong , very hard to understand dialect, which made it hard to get into in my opinion. "

    "This is a very different take on the crime genre and probably one of the most interesting foreign films I have seen, although I haven't seen much cinema from South Africa. Tsotsi seems like a hardened criminal, but with the situation he gets himself into he comes off as a sort of anti-hero. I would recommend it even if you aren't used to watching movies with subtitles."

    "I don't remember how this is different than the original, other than its got the Director's comments and outtakes, but this is awesome. I'd moved to Balto just as this was getting released, and my local (Fells Point) video store had it advertised in its window. Finally got it and it is everything I remember and more."
