saw Apocalypse Now for the first time last night, and it was nuts. i remember knocking dennis hopper a while back and said his role in Apocalypse Now couldnt give him any serious credit from me. that statement is formally retracted. one of the best war movies ive ever seen.

9/10

Jackie Brown and Kill Bill Vol. 2...what else would you expect from Quentin Tarantino?

9/10 for both movies.

I love to hear people's reaction when they say, "I just saw Apocalypse Now for the first time"

The movie is one of my top 3, it puts you in a reality of it's own, if you watch it alone concentrated it puts you in a mind set like no other, similiar if the first time you watched Natural Born Killers by yourself straight through....

Worst movie I've seen since The Stand II (not having seen Stand I or reading the books. It was one of those movies that was horrible and so utterly crazy that you keep watching expecting it to get awesome and 2 hours and 10 minutes later you are sitting there in a daze. Willis and Pitt were mediocre in my opinion and the plot was too damn confusing and not properly explained.

Ugh.

3/10


Thats too bad that you didnt like it CC. Personally, I thought it was one of the most creative and interesting movies to come out of the 90's.

Take my recommendation and rent or buy HIGH TENSION.
I just saw it last week and it is one of the best horror movies of all time. It is the best horror flick since the first House of 1000 Corpses, which was very good.

High Tension is scary, suspenseful and maybe the goriest movie I have ever seen. There are two versions of the movie, Unrated and Rated R. I strongly suggest you to see the unrated version if you like blood, guts and gore. ;-D
I rate High Tension 9.5/10.


Meh - I rented this movie this weekend. It was ok. Not that scary. The gore was interesting, but it certainly didnt make up for the gaping plot holes. The holes in the movie really ruined it for me. Can anyone who watched it explain the scene with the guy in the truck at the very beginning of the movie?

Watched Mean Creek this weekend. This film won a couple of awards at the Independent Spirit awards this year and so I rented it. Really great acting by a very talented young cast. Very depressing and difficult to watch, but certainly a great film - just one that I never want to see again. I highly recommend it if you'd like to watch a heart-wrenching indy film that has a similar feel to Stand by Me, but is considerably darker.

I'm glad people are discovering American Psycho since Christian Bale became Batman. What did you think BH?

I Saw Mean Creek too and thought the same thing, it was like a newer version of Stand by Me.

It does tell a good, sad and depressing story though.
