The Rock is one of my favorite action movies... and was an early indicator of how Bay could be quite the genre director.

Superb short review Carlos, "The Abyss" is one my favorite sci-fi epics from James Cameron.

An intense, multi-layered parable that defies us to consider all the complex implications of serving the demands of a manipulative, petty and sadistic Creator (both entity and faith) instead of facing Him to follow our hearts - which is something that unfortunately still happens today with many religious people.

What a truly remarkable accomplishment in terms of jaw-dropping visuals, but the problem is that Cinema is not Painting, so Majewski is unable to transpose the symbolism of Bruegel's work to the screen without relying on an expository explanation of his intentions.

This lumpy steampunk dark fable is a perfect example of too much style over substance, offering us astonishing visuals, a beautiful soundtrack and spectacular plot devices (like the chain of events originated by a teardrop) but not so able to use all that in a more meaningful narrative.

Despite showing early signs of Dante's peculiar sense of humor (the ululating sound made by the piranhas is a hilarious example), this spoof of Jaws (or as Roger Corman put it, his "homage" to that classic) did not resist well the effect of time, looking pretty trashy and silly today.

Days of Thunder

Days of Thunder

Like Top Gun with racing stock cars, it may not be really original and is quite predictable actually, but it has a very good soundtrack and Tom Cruise injecting a lot of energy into a two-dimensional character who lacks sufficient depth and motivation for us to care.
