    "The ultimate chick-flick ever. Audrey Hepburn is a goddess and Gregory Peck is the perfect gentleman. I don't know if kids these days know how many movie or book references go back to Roman Holiday. This is just such a wonderful movie and I will never, ever, get tired of watching it. 5 stars and 5 thumbs up."

    "Were we entertained? Hell, yes!!! This Ridley Scott masterpiece will go down as one of the most influential films during its time. An instant classic, Gladiator may be Russell Crowes' finest performance ever and this also vindicated Joaquin Phoenix's status as one of the best-underrated actors ever."

    "I loved the book and I also loved the movie. This is such a thought-provoking film that if I recall correctly, the movie was banned from some Catholic-dominated countries. But heck, what if it was true? I also love how Tom Hanks and Ewan McGregor brought their characters to life. Whenever I read the books again, I see their faces float from the pages of the book. I can't imagine any other actors taking up Hanks' and McGregor's roles. They owned it."

    "A chase in Rome involving the crew of Mission Impossible was one of the best things that ever happened in the movie industry the year it was released. This movie may just have confirmed that Abrams is a special director and that Tom Cruise can play any role regardless of genre."

    "I think this one is a classic. It's not just a war movie. It is also not just a love story. It is a depiction of what happens in real-life. And the thing is, it could have happened to any of us if were born in that era."

    "I believe this is one of the Bond films ever made. I truly do. But that said, if it weren't a part of the James Bond movie series, I would say that this film is one of the best films of that year. An action-packed, high-intensity movie that ties a sinister past to the main hero (think about the hero as not James Bond and you'll understand what I am talking about). It really has a great plot if you removed the James Bond and let it stand alone as a solo film. "

    "I thought this film aimed for cash-grab. I thought Ocean's Eleven couldn't be topped and here I was, re-thinking my views on this movie. 12 definitely outdid 11. Plus Zeta-Jones and Andy Garcia were perfect for their roles. So yes, I stand corrected. 12 is better than 11. And by a wide margin."
