    "One of the most iconic films of all time! This isn't just a summer film folks. This is the real thing. Those young kids literally are the best actors in this movie. Also, that E. T. is cuddly and I daresay that if they came to conquer us, they would just have to light their thumbs and we'll bow down to their cuteness. HAHAHA!"

    "Truly one of the best scream-flick ever. Even if you know what would happen, you'll still be surprised and yes, scream! Jennifer Love Hewitt, Sarah Michell Gellar, and Ryan Philippe were so good on this film that it launched their careers."

    "This is the biggest blockbuster hit of its time. The plot of the movie was excellent that fans clamored for a sequel. Sadly, the sequel failed to live up to expectations so don't base what you know about that sequel. This is the movie that really catapulted Will Smith to superstardom and cemented Jeff Goldblum's status as one of the most versatile actors of his generation."

    "For a chick-flick, this is actually a very sensible and thought-provoking movie. The kind that would let you think about your past and ask "what if?" The chemistry between Zooey and Joseph were so believable that you'd think they have been together!"

    "Is there anything left to say about this classic? Back to the Future captured the minds of millions around the world with its time-travel concept. But it was really Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd who captured their hearts. And mine too. I still watch this film years later."

    "This film isn't one of you typical films. With a ground-breaking tech and concept, Inception became one of the best films of its time. The best I can think of to compare with to is the Matrix. And that film isn't so bad either."

    "I think this is the movie that helped re-launch the superhero genre. Too bad it didn't stay true to the original comics. But for a film that would be mentioned as one of the pillars of the superhero films, this film didn't do so bad. On the plus side, there was Toby and on the negative side, there was Toby. Don't get me wrong, he is a good actor. But I envisioned Spidey being young!"
