Network should of won the oscar, now that is a magnificent fucking film. Rocky is borderline decent. It's dialogue is slightly corny, and the character development isn't there.

This has to be a troll job. Rocky had no character development? What a jerk off.

I actually thought Antz was way better then Bugs Life, which i thought was just good but Antz was amazing.

Do we really need to go over this again? The best movies are the best movies, period. Animation doesn't diminish a film at all. Voice acting isn't as easy as some people like to think.

That said, I would also choose Rocky as my favorite Stallone film. But by Tomatometer, Antz wins. End of story.

Isn't it, "You're the disease, and I'm the cure." Marion Cobretti, Cobra (1986)

I liked "Hey dirtbag, you're a lousy shot. I don't like lousy shots. You wasted a kid... for nothing. Now I think it's time to waste you!"

Yep, but the crime/meet variation was the tagline on the poster.

I liked 'First Blood' as the quiet, just want to be left alone as ex-Green Beret John J. Rambo, entered the small town of Hope, WA to visit a friend. He was later guided out of town by the Sheriff William Teasel who insults Rambo. Then, you what "all" breaks loose...

Seems like 'Cliffhanger' had a hair raising opening scene. Do I remember that right?
