    "This is an old movie but the best Star Wars movie off all time in my opinion (way better than the new ones). I remember going to see this in theaters when I was 9 years old. I was blown away by the special effects and pulled in by the very distinct Star Wars sounds. We're talking total immersion for a young kid in 1980 with his life ahead of him. This movie easily holds its own in today's market and I highly recommend anyone to see this space classic. Even if you aren't really a fan of the modern Star Wars movies, give this one a try and you might be surprised at how good it is!"

    "Citizen Kane...has the best of everything: a great director and star, innovative cinematography, dreamlike - even nightmarish - art direction, a sonorous musical score, a skillful screenplay in which comic passages intensify the movie's tragic qualities by means of their grotesque juxtaposition (how lifelike!), a psychological / narrative form that predates our contemporary "psycho-histories" by at least 40 years, and best of all, a memorial word that, when spoken, recalls the film out of thin air."

I first saw it as a child, and I grew up on old movies - to be frank, many of them put modern cinema to shame. Back when they couldn't CGI everything, actors had to really act and writers had to really write. Take a trip back to yesteryear with this classic!"

Honestly, it may get some historical credit for pushing frontiers in comedy, but other movies built on it enough that they have simply done it better. Unless you're a fan of the actors or director, I'd give this one a pass."

Based on the writings of Baroness Karen Blixen who ran a coffee plantation on the slopes of Kilimanjaro and wrote books about the experience. This is a love story told with a thoughtfulness that involves you in the passions of the characters."

Morgan Freeman does an excellent job portraying his character but Richard Harris leaves quite a bit to be desired. Westerns are not for everyone and this one certainly isn't on my list of best movies."

    ""They don't make movies like they used to" definitely comes to mind when I think of this movie. A typical American Western with a star-studded cast. Full of excitement and adventure, this is a movie that I can watch over and over again. In an age of computerized, over the top movies, it is great to watch a good old Western where you know that good will win over evil."

The story was fresh and really moved along really nicely. The cast was incredible and the effects really made the movie that much better. For a non stop action packed thrill ride, check this one out.

Heath Ledger's role as the Joker is one of the most bone chilling on screen villians to ever be seen. The only thing that isn't perfect about this movie is Christian Bale's odd choice for Batman's voice. A must see for all fans of the genre."

This is a comedy, but it's more than that, it has social awareness and isn't just about getting a laugh out of you. One of Chaplin's best and one of the best movies of all time."
