Rating History

Stripes (1981)
6 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

I just watched this one again the other day and I don't remember it being so funny!! It might be my love for 80's comedies, or the great cast, but this is one of the best comedies of the last 30 years!!

The cast alone should draw you to this one (Bill Murray, Harold Ramis, John Candy, Judge Reinhold, and the start of the careers of Dave Thomas (not Dave Thomas of Wendy's!!) and Bill Paxton).

Besides Caddyshack, this is Murray at his best. Murray demonstrates great acting ability and improv.

This is a must see for any 80's movie fans, Bill Murray fans, slapstick humor fans, or any and all comedy fans!!

For the people who have seen this one - the John Candy mud wrestling scene is still one of my favorites of all time!! For those of you who haven't seen this one - watch it and you'll laugh the whole time for those 3 minutes!!

Shutter Island
6 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Shutter Island is in my opinion is Scorsese's 5th best film, only being beaten out by Taxi Driver, Raging Bull, Goodfellas, and The Aviator. I'm sorry to say this is any director's 5th best film, but when you look at Scorsese's history you can't deny it. For any other director it would be like their 3rd best at most (i.e. Speilberg and Fincher)!!

The film starts out like you would expect, a man (Teddy), who is a U.S. Marshall investigating a missing person, is against the odds. The Shutter Island security guards are against him, the Shutter Island prison director is against him, even some of the Shutter Island inmates are against him. But he still has a job to do, find the missing person.

As Teddy continues his journey, he runs into many obstacles, including stories, weather, his own thoughts, and family's mortality!!

Finally, when you get to end of this thriller you see the truth. It may be what you expected, but it may not!!

I think the final two minutes are the best two minutes of any film I've ever seen!!
