    "I loved this movie the first time I watched it and every other time since. I love the whole trilogy. It's one of the first trilogies where the sequel is as good as the original too. I love all the characters and the drama and the action in it. Kind of an inside look on what crime families are all about. A must see in my opinion."

    "This Academy Award-winning movie is easily the greatest adaptation of a Stephen King novel to date, and easily stands in and of itself as a great film. Its basic premise is about a man who is wrongfully imprisoned for the murder of his wife and her secret lover, the trials and tribulations he faces, the people he meets, the friends he makes, and ultimately how to persist even in the worst of situations. This is an emotionally powerful film, with excellent performances from the entire cast, most notably Morgan Freeman in quite possibly the greatest role of his entire career. This is a definite must-watch."

    "Schindler's List is a classic movie for a reason. It is dramatic, heartbreaking, and eyeopening. It is easily one of Spielberg's best movies. The story of the survivors is graphic but realistic. It is in black and white, which some people may not like, but I think it adds to the drama of the movie. "

    "I watch a lot of series on Netflix, so when I seen this one, I thought I would give it a try. This is one of those quirky shows that doesn't fall into just one category. It's a crime drama, it's a comedy, but of all things it is, it is very good. This show will have you wanting to binge watch them all. This is truly a one of a kind show."

    "Watching this movie was an emotional experience for me because I could relate many parts of the movie to my friend's life when we were younger. However, I wouldn't recommend anyone with an eating disorder to watch this film because the way the characters talk and discuss the issue may be harmful to a person recovering."

    "The Room is a taut drama and black comedy about a banker named Johnny who is duped by his fiancee Lisa and his friend Mark. I consider the drama genre to be pretty competitive, since there are so many great films in that genre, but this one definitely holds its own. "

    "Another overrated movie with poor acting from Will Smith. How long are they going to keep putting this guy into garbage movies? I really struggled to get through this thing and wouldn't recommend it to anyone unless you want to torture yourself. Maybe someone could watch it to see what bad acting is all about. Otherwise, just avoid this thing. It's a throwaway movie."

    "Very realistic and intense comedy film noir. It is another Netflix original that is very well made and with interesting characters . Joe Denton is a good man with a past that includes small crimes and time in prison. He is escaping prison and talking to a man named Chaplin. It also has some very thought provoking and serious dialogue. Don't want to spoil it but it was worth the time. "
