    "This is probably the only Mexican movie that I know of that virtually all of my friends know about, no kidding! It is such a great movie that even my parents have watched it too and I really like how we were able to voice our opinions about it and how it is one of the best coming-of-age films out there. This is a definite must-watch if you want to get a taste of really good Mexican films!"

    "This is an Iñárritu film so you KNOW it's good! I am a huge fan of foreign films and I really like drama thrillers as well so this was a good choice for me to watch. Man, I was not disappointed! I mean, the plot is pretty straightforward with the whole car crash moment and how it affects all the characters, but what I really enjoyed was the way the story was laid out for the audience."

    "Like the title of this film, i think this movie is simply beautiful. The subject matter is of course very NOT beautiful at all, since it looks at slums and sweatshops, but despite all of those things, the viewer gets to see the true beauty of the soul of Uxbal. Javier Bardem was just stellar here and he definitely deserved an Academy Award!!"

    "This is a fantasy film that is really fantastical and magical. del Toro did a really amazing job here in creating a story and world where the magical world collides with the real one. It is also a movie with a lot of depth and spirit to it, and it is much more than just a movie with lots of fantastical beings. It is a really great movie that you should watch now if you haven't already!"

    "Ahh La Misma Luna. This is a heartbreaking film that really shows a different side of being a parent. The film focuses on the relationship between mother and child and it is truly one of the most touching and heart-wrenching films that I have seen. The fact that it is in another language actually adds to the feel of it and makes it even more memorable."

    "El Norte is a movie that is really old but which is really relevant today. It is basically a story of illegal immigration into America and how two siblings struggle to find their way to what they hope is a place that will hold something better for them. I really think this is the type of movie that children should be watching today more than ever. "

    "Like Water for Chocolate is a pretty interesting film. I quite liked the book and I have read it before when I was younger. The film version though, I just watched recently and I found myself liking it quite a bit. It is a good romantic kind of film that is one that you want to watch with a significant other or something. In any case, this is one that I will recommend. "

    "Bandidas has a megastar duo in Penelope and Selma, but to be honest, it is just a comedy action film that shows off the assets of these two women more than it does the plot of the story. Really, I spent most of the time paying attention to them and I didn't really care for the cliche plot too. However, if a funny action Mexican film is what you want, this delivers it to you no problem. "
