Inception
Inception(2010)

Christopher Nolan proves ones again that he is one of the best directers working today. He shows that you can still make an original entertaining thought provoking movie. Take note Hollywood.

Gone Baby Gone

This movie impressed me immensely. I am not a fan of Ben Affleck the actor, but I will watch more of his movies if he's behind the camera. The best directorial debut since the Coen Brothers Blood Simple. He had a little help since the source material was an outstanding novel by Dennis Lehanne, whose novels never disappoint.
The acting was superb. Casey Afflect gives amazing performance. A 5 star career skyrocketing performance. He is a far better actor than his brother and he shows it in this movie. Michelle Monaghan was great. Morgan Freeman never gives a bad performance and neither does Ed Harris.
This movie stirs your emotions and makes you think. It stays with you far after the movie is over. Most wont agree on the end and argue on weither or not the right thing was done.
This movie is a work of fiction, but it is very real. You only have to open a newspaper to see how real it is. Children get kidnapped, abused, raped and murdered everyday in this world. How anyone can hurt a child is beyond me. It shouldn't happen, but it does happen. When a child is abused it scars them forever.

Paranormal Activity

Extremely creepy and genuinely scary. A really fun movie. I loved it.

21 Grams
21 Grams(2003)

Watching 21 Grams is like putting a jigsaw puzzle together. As you start to see the pieces they dont fit but as more pieces come together you start to see the big picture.

The first time I watched this movie I almost shut it off. I didn't know what the hell was going on. The more I watched the movie the pieces started to fit together and I got excited. This is not only one of the most original and creative movies I've ever seen but one of the most emotional as well. The scene with Naomi Watts at the hospital always makes me cry.

I'm glad I didn't shut this movie off that first veiwing. This is one of my top favorites.

District 9
District 9(2009)
½

I really enjoyed this movie. I loved the documentary feel of the beginning and then it went the complete opposite direction of where I thought it was going. I didn't know what was going to happen next and that's rare for me with movies today. All in all a great sci-fi flict that relies on storytelling than just special effects. One great ride.

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre

I love this movie. Without a doubt my favorite horror movie of all time. This is horror pumped with steriods. The terror is unrelenting once it starts and doesn't stop until Sally is out of her mind with joy and Leatherface tangos with his chainsaw.

This was a favorite of mine as a kid. It would scare the hell out of me and give me nightmares but I loved watching it. As a kid I thought that the movie was real. I didn't know this word at the time but I thought it was like a snuff film. It made it even scarier.

This movie has some of my favorite quotes of all time. "Grandpa's the best killer there ever was. It won't hurt a bit." "He's just the cook." "I can't take no pleasure in killing. There's some things a man has to do, doesn't mean he has to like it." "Why, he did sixty in five minutes once. They say he could've done more if the hook and pull gang could've gotten the beeves out of the way faster." And, of course "Look what your brother did to the door."

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre is a classic grade A horror movie.

Young Frankenstein

One of the few movies I loved as a kid and still love. This is not only a parody of the classic Frankenstein films but an homage as well. While I believe The Producers is Mel Brooks funniest movie, this is his best.

The casting is brilliant. Gene Wilder deserved an oscar for his performance as Dr. Frankenstein...I mean Fronk'-en-steen. Peter Boyle is wonderful as the monster. Teri Garr is beautiful and funny...what knockers. Marty Feldman steals the movie every time he's in a shot. Clauis Leachman is creepingly hilarious. Kenneth Mars is brilliant. I fell in love with Madeline Kahn in this movie even with her Marge Simpson hairdo. And I never realized that was Gene Hackman until I watched the making of on dvd.

Rewatching this movie over the years is like catching up with an old friend. This is a classic comedy which should be remembered forever. Long live Mel Brooks and Young Frankenstein.
