Mina E.'s Movie Ratings - Rotten Tomatoes

Movie Ratings and Reviews

The Witches of Eastwick

As entertaining as it may be at times, it eventually left me unsatisfied and indifferent.

Little England (Mikra Anglia)

The performances of the two leading actresses are astonishing.

House of Flying Daggers

Everything is stunning in this movie. Directing, scenes, soundtrack, plot, everything.

The Other Man

Why would actors like Liam Neeson and Antonio Banderas want to waste their time and our own in such a meaningless way? Nobody will ever know...

Red Riding Hood

What is Gary Oldman even doing there?

The Best Offer

I had other expectations from this movie, but it ended up different from what I believed it to be. Nevertheless, exceptional soundtrack by Ennio Morricone and a beautiful performance by Geoffrey Rush.

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug

Much better than the first film, definitely worse than the Lord of the Rings.

Politiki Kouzina (A Touch of Spice)

A beautiful movie with an excellent soundtrack composed by Evanthia Rempoutsika. I guess people unfamiliar to the Greek history, culture and gastronomy (or the Turkish ones) can not fully understand the core of its metaphor, therefore the bad reviews. The lesson is simple; the food sometimes is sweet, sometimes spicy and sometimes it has to be a little bitter. Life is exactly like the food. In the end, the worst food is the one which has no taste at all.


One of the greatest psychological thrillers ever and very disturbing. Catherine Deneuve makes her best performance here.

3:10 to Yuma
3:10 to Yuma(2007)

The relationship between Ben Wade and Dan Evans should be "worked" a bit more, so the ending would be more persuasive. Intense performance by Russell Crowe.

The Devil's Advocate

Definitely entertaining and with a show-stealing Pacino, it worths watching especially for the priceless last minute!

Django Unchained

Violent, quirky, eccentric and humorous. Tarantino's most enjoyable movie so far!

The Great Gatsby

Baz Luhrmann, the director, obviously emphasizes on the phantasmagoria and tries to stun us visually, while what is essential about this story is the feelings, the emotions and the relationships. It's a crime to kill Fitzerald's exceptional novel this way. It feels like he took the story, subtracted some of the most important parts of it, wrapped it like a fancy present and commercialised it. DiCaprio and Maguire try their best to save the movie, but in vain. At the end it leaves you unsatisfied and determined to read the book one more time or for the first time. 3 stars for DiCaprio, some visually beautiful moments and the story which is based on this great book of course.

Shutter Island

You know what a boring and predictable end is like. This is exactly the opposite.


Sometimes disturbing and interesting, but most of the time nonsense and silly.

Scary Movie 5

I pity myself for watching this.

Interview with the Vampire

Directors should learn from Jordan how a good vampire movie is made.

Marie Antoinette

Surprisingly shallow and horrible soundtrack. It has amazing costumes, but that's all about Coppola's Marie Antoinette.

Full Metal Jacket

Full Metal Jacket is a quite explicit and disturbing film, which however doesn't let you take your eyes off the screen. It's only flaw is that the first half of the movie is much better than the second.

The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers

Probably the worst movie of the three, since the story here has neither beginning nor end. Still, undoubtedly the greatest film without beginning or end ever to be created!

The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King

The Lord of the Rings is probably the best fantasy movie series ever to be created. Hardly you can find any other fantasy movie leaning so much towards perfection. The Return of the King is the ultimate ending of these series and includes some of the most memorable battle scenes in cinema as well as great visual and sound effects. The scenery is as always wonderful and Peter Jackson's direction is breathtaking. And as if it wasn't good enough already, there also scenes full of emotion which make you realise that you have loved all those characters. I will never forget this journey to Middle Earth!

A Perfect Murder

You never know when the next surprise will appear. Douglas is great in this role.

The Nightmare Before Christmas

This is the definition of masterpiece.

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

Some of the acting here is poor and the emphasis on the romantic interests of the protagonists distracts the audience from the core of the story. Despite all that, the movie has a thrilling gloomy atmosphere and amazing soundtrack.

Finding Nemo
Finding Nemo(2003)

A beautiful computer animated film about fatherhood. Visually stunning, lovable characters and humor.

Citizen Kane
Citizen Kane(1941)

Cinema's true potential.

Ed Wood
Ed Wood(1994)

This is probably Tim Burton's best movie to date. It is the biography of Edward D. Wood Jr, also known as the worst director of all times, whom Burton apparently appreciated a lot. Given the fact that it is as weird as a Burton movie typically is and as truthful as a film biography can be, plus including one of the very best Depp acts and a great gloomy cast (the highlight being amazing Martin Landau as Bela Lugosi), I think it's one of the best and most bittersweet movies I 've ever seen.

Fantasia 2000

If you have seen the first Fantasia, this can't really satisfy you.


Imagine making a journey into the imaginarium of a great artist, while he explores the magic of classical music. Now, this is perfection!

Stand Up Guys

When you have a cast like this one - Pacino, Walken and Arkin- you just don't expect the movie to be a disappointment. But it is, at least in its acting and screenplay part. The basic idea is somewhat sweet, but Walken (whom I admire) acts as if he's bored to death. Anyway, the last 30 minutes are more watchable.

Shine a Light

Arguably one of the best concert movies ever. From the very start, the movie is practically the filming of Scorsese's love for the Stones and his attempt to prove that these guys, despite the age, still know better how it's done. And it is a really great attempt.

Gimme Shelter

Magnificent in each and every aspect. And most important, it's educational.

Taxi Driver
Taxi Driver(1976)

This film is a great effort by Scorsese and De Niro's finest moment perhaps. Still, I thought it was going to be somewhat better.

Eat Pray Love

A sweet, absolutely feel-good movie, which apparently had the intention to pull the audience in a philosophic trip, but that didn't work that much.

Closet Land
Closet Land(1991)

A movie of really low budget, yet one of the most shocking and disturbing I 've ever seen. Stowe and Rickman are at their best. It's not suitable for anyone to see. Excellent.

Jurassic Park

A movie full of adventure and agony. A score which is classic. And some of the best visual effects I've ever seen!

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

The Prisoner of Azkaban has perhaps the most interesting direction style of the Harry Potter series thanks to Alfonso Cuaron. The atmosphere in the third Potter movie gets a lot darker as the three protagonists goodbye their childhood forever. The score is absolutely magical.


Pocahontas is visually stunning and beautifully animated, but historically inaccurate and leaves you with a bitter feeling.


Although it's considered a Disney classic it was nowhere close to being a masterpiece. The best features of the movie are some hilarious quotes said by a few show stealing characters.

Bram Stoker's Dracula

Coppola's Dracula respects the legend of the powerful Vampire and adds even more passion and chill to Stoker's original masterpiece.

Pan's Labyrinth

A scary fairy tale for grown-ups.Splendid.


An entertaining Disney movie with a bunch of likable characters. Humour and romance blend together and provide nearly two hours of guarranted fun.


Confusing, but there is an interesting plot twist.

The Lone Ranger

A lot of action, great sound effects and a Depp we have already seen before.
