Last Holiday- Im not a fan of Queen Latifah or LL Cool J but I must say they both did an excellent job in this movie. Was pretty funny with some surprising sweet moments slipped in.

Never heard of this movie but I'm interested in the 10.5/10 rating. Could you elaborate?

The Ice Harvest - kind of an odd flick. A good performance by Billy Bob Thorton. But for me an average movie at best.

Great fun movie. Tea Leoni is great, as always......she is very good at physical humor. Paz Vega and Adam Sandler are great and Cloris Leachman as Tea's mother is hilarious!

As a romantic comedy, I give it

My apologies if am being presumptuous here.

Hombre is a movie (circa 1965) starring Paul Newman... I have no idea what it is about as I've never seen it.
10.5: Apocalypse is a mini-series (I think) that aired on NBC that was about an earthquake.

Silence of the Lambs - It doesn't matter how many times I've seen it, I never get tired of it. Anthony Hopkins is brilliant as Hannibal Lecter and continues to amaze me every time I watch this movie

10/10

Da Vinci Code

5/10

Tom Hanks was so awful I was embarrassed for him. Lots of total cheese in the movie, but the book was really meh as well. Lovely shots of Paris, though.

Napoleon Dynamite, I put it on par with Donnie Darko - which for me is ~ 4/10

I watched Enemy at the Gates after that - I prefered it.

I just watched The Dangerous Life of Altar Boys, and I rate it 9/10

I thought the main characters (played by Emile Hirsch, Kieran Culkin, and Jena Malone) were really well developed, and the animated portions of the film are far-fetched but still true to the main character Francis's inner life. On the surface, it's a typical coming-of-age tale, but the screenwriters had the sense to go deeper with it. It examines how teenagers struggle to reconcile what they learn in Catholic school with what the struggles and changes going on in the rest of their lives. Each character carries secrets, and the truth, unlike what's taught in Catholic school, is far from something that frees them.

The only thing that kept this from being a 10/10 for me was that some of the school scenes seemed a bit superfluous after awhile, as they remain sort of static while the rest of the movie develops. Jodie Foster plays a strict nun and Vincent D'Onofrio a bumbling priest.

Very dark in places, very funny in others, overall very believable. All in all, a great movie.

I've wanted to watch this movie for a while. Thanks for reviewing it

Batman Returns

I haven't seen this movie in years, but I love how dark it is compared to the first one, although there are a few parts that make me cringe. Tim Burton like always is a genius, the set design is amazing, and stellar performances from Michael Keaton, Michelle Pfieffer, and Danny DeVito (but not Christopher Walken).

The last of the great Batman movies until 2005

9/10.

I watched Capote last weekend. It was fantastic! Easily one of the best movies I've seen in a couple of years. Even if you don't know anything about Truman Capote or his book "In Cold Blood" you'll find something to enjoy about it, because it plays out like a movie and not a biography. Phillip Seymour Hoffman definitely earned the Oscar he won for his portrayl of Capote.
