Even though this obviously has a pretty unusual plot, that is one thing you have to admire about it - it's completely original. Kevin Smith succeeds in making this film considering the story is different from any other film he's done and his comedy is still there and is as bright and clever as ever. The strange characters played by Ben Affleck, Matt Damon, Salma Hayek, Alan Rickman and Chris Rock allows you to get lost in this crazy plot and actually make it some what believable and relatable as the underlying message and theme is important and serious. It shows some great acting from the entire cast including a powerful scene in which Affleck "sounds like Lucifer" and a very touching revelation for the lead played by Linda Fiorentino. Watch this film for a top notch intelligent, comedic script, brilliant set pieces and great performances.

Fargo

What can I say about this flick that hasn't been said before? I just can't praise it enough, it really is filmmaking at it's finest. The Coen Brothers have expertly crafted a violent, dark film that is still packed full of black humor and big laughs. There is so many memorable scenes that are just a joy to watch, which is largely due to the superb casting of Frances McDormand, William H. Macy, Steve Buscemi and Peter Stormare. And they all give career high performances. The dialogue is amazing and it all feels very fluent and natural. This plot of murder and deceit unfolds over the backdrop of Minnesota, which just fantastic as not only is it an unusual setting for this type of story but we also get a sample of the unique dialect which makes the film stand out even more and makes the characters more real.

If there ever was one film everyone needed to see, do yourself a favor and make it this one, yah.

Reservoir Dogs

This is a excellent debut film from the highly acclaimed director Quentin Tarantino. I love everything about this film, the script, the music, the characters. The roles in the film are played so perfectly by each actor and has some of the most memorable scenes (to me at least) put on film. Often it is overshadowed by Tarantino's second film "Pulp Fiction" but there is just something about "Reservoir Dogs" that appeals to me more.
