" They Send You Here For Life Thats Exactly What They Take"
The Plot
Andy Dufrene is sent too Shawshank prision for sending his wife and her lover. As he gets too Shawshank he doesn't really make many friends because of his mild manner. But the longer he stays he starts too make many friends especcially Red ( Morgan Freeman) who he hangs close too and as the story develops it shows the prision is not as white as white.

My Review
Firstly this movie was robbed at the oscars by forrest gump. The reason i think this is because this movie is BRILLIANT. The acting is class especially by the underrated Tim Robbins. The storyline is phenomenal. People say this film is overated but it isnt at all. Evreyone has too see this movie cause it is simply PHENOMENAL

" A royale with cheese "
The Plot
The story opens with Honey Bunny and Pumpkin who decide they need too rob a diffrent venue so they try a cafe. Vincent and Jules are two hitmen who just go about shooting all their people who are late on payment. But between the film Vincent is asked too babysit his hot boss's daughter while Jules is thinking of giving up his life of crime. Bruce Coolridge is a prizefighter who is on the run from his boss and there is a funny and violent scene where Bruce and his Boss gets kidnapped. Lastly it all fits together at the end with Jules and vincent being in the cafe that Honey Bunny and Pumpkin are robbing.

My Review
This is possibly one of the greatest films ever made and certainly Tarantino's best. This is so brilliantly acted by John Travolta and Uma Thurman in paticular. Also the humour well it depends if you like dark humour.This movie is nuts and i know people say it over rated but it not the reasons i think this is it is set out like a comic book which is genius and the one liners and the humour in this film are brilliant. This is one of the films you gotta see.
Look out for Tarantino Near The End

"Beam It Up Scotty"

The Plot
The fate of the galaxy rest in 2 enemys Spock and Kirk. Kirk a human who has lived a normal life. Spock a half human half alien who been dreaming too be the captain of the enterprise since he was old enough too think. But will these 2 rivals settle their diffrences and save the galaxy?

My Review
This is a brilliant made film. I havent seen any other star trek films so i cant compare but the acting is brilliant especially from Zachary Quinto. In my opinon with the exception of the dark knight this is the best summer film in a long time. Secondly this is so funny especially with Simon Pegg in the equation and it is not geeky at all. This is a must see

GoodFellas
GoodFellas (1990)

"As far back as i can remember i always wanted too be a gangster"

This film is based on a real life gangster who is half irish who enters the mafia and the story follows him on the next 25 years of his life through his pain and pleasure

In my opinon this is the greatest film ever made better than the godfather,better than the shawshank redemption better than evreything. But the things that makes it so brilliant is the dialouge,the acting of the greatest actor in the world robert de niro. Also the storyline we all know it's real but how Martin Scorsese makes it feel. This is truly the one film evreyone must see and so was robbed with not winning an oscar for this masterpiece.
FORGER THE GODFATHER REMEMBER GOODFELLAS

Along Came Polly
7 years ago via Flixster

Unlike some reviewers on here i actully thought this was good and i'm a guy

Plot
Reuben (Ben Stiller)gets cheated on by his wife Lisa on their honeymoon. But when he gets back he meets the carefree no strings attached Polly (Jenifer Aniston) but as he starts to fall in love with her. Does she want him?

Verdict
I thought this film was really decent, not too soppy at times. Its good to see Jenifer in something good other than friends and Ben Stiller is brilliant as always. Id say if u got some spare time watch it
