Many people write off films simply because they are "weird" "different" or "unnatural". But when the movie is set in a "weird, unusual, unnatural" place, this cannot be the only reason one dislikes the film. Once you wrap your mind around the curious idea of The Matrix, then you can to begin to see why it is such a classic. Many of the elements in the film revolutionized the genre for which it stands. You cannot overlook the innovation this film had and for that it should be respected. The direction [...] Read more
Shock Value: Shock value is a valuable tool for any horror filmmaker, but when it is the only plot element used, it certainly does not make an intriguing film. Too much shock value can dramatically reduce the value of a film and that's exactly what Paranormal Activity 3 did. As a fellow filmmaker, even the sudden scares it gave you were predictable. Nevertheless, this movie guarantees you to jump out of your seat a few times if you like that. Wanna be scared for 1hr 25min? Watch it. However, for [...] Read more
Agree with most of that, also SYNCING with IMDB would be huge! (watchlist and rated films at least)

This movie badly lacked the Disney/Pixar touch that has made so many movies truly entertainment for all ages. Sorry Disney/Pixar fans, but Pixar did not deliver.
127 Hours was directed by Danny Boyle who also directed Slumdog Millionaire. The film's plot was set up to be an intensity driven story with the help of an incredible acting performance. Danny Boyle and James Franco delivered. It was all that you would expect from this movie. Not amazing, and certainly not bad. Good job.
With the stylish storytelling of JJ Abrams and the youthful magic brought back like only Spielberg can do, Super 8 is summer movie for all. It's not necessarily the story of the movie that made it good, Read the article
Is there a way to say "yes I like this recommendation" and "No I do not like this recommendation"???
The Hurt Locker is an incredible movie. However, it is anti-war (which I strongly disagree with), but the film was so beautifully crafted I could care less about Bigelow's perception of war. It has a unique Read the article
