  • Star Wars: Revenge of the SIth

    Star Wars: Revenge of the SIth
    The first Star Wars movie that I saw in theaters at an age when I was old enough to really enjoy and understand the series. I particularly enjoyed learning what happened to the Jedi, absent from the Star Wars Trilogy, and the political elements of the story. I saw this with my family.
  • The International

    The International
    The first movie that I saw that had an unhappy ending, a sort of lesson in "good doesnt always win". It made me think for quite a while. I saw this with some family in a theater.
  • Atomic Rulers of the World

    Atomic Rulers of the World
    Probably the worst movie I've ever seen. In a hilarious way. In this case, everything about the movie was horrendous: the lead actor had to be overdubbed in English but still mouthed in Japanese, the flying effects were painfully obvious, the plot was hilariously nonsensical. I saw this with my friend and his family at his home.
  • Forrest Gump

    Forrest Gump
    Forrest Gump is a classic, and for good reason. It is touching, the acting is great, and the size and scope of the movie are very ambitious, with excellent results.
  • The Killer Shrews

    The Killer Shrews
    The other worst movie I've ever seen. The plot made no sense, this "horror" movie was not at all terrifying, and it was generally awful. I saw this with a friend and his family at his home.
  • The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King (Extended Edition)

    The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King (Extended Edition)
    Isaw this at home on DVD with some of the family. We had just watched the other two in earlier weekends, and the ending of the trilogy is my personal favorite. I had read the books, but not seen the movies until this point. This movie is one of my all time favorites, from the plot to the effects to the cinematography.
  • Inception

    Inception
    Inception, to me, is brilliant. The story is fascinating, and the possibilities allowed for by dream sharing are well used and clever. Particularly I liked the weight changes that affected Arthur on the 2nd level when the van was falling in the 1st. I greatly enjoyed the score, and the Leonardo DiCaprio's characters wife's actress did an amazing job.
  • Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl

    Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl
    Pirates of the Caribbean is an example of an excellent adventure film: a plot that is fantasy but not so much as to get in the way, impossible stunts, and memorable characters. A lot of people dismiss this series (to be honest, Disney doing serious pirates seems ridiculous), but I for one like these films. They aren't terribly cerebral, but then not all movies need to or should be.
