2007.05.20

Very visual, scenes are presented in the way they would be drawn, rather than (usually) filmed. Which makes sense, since this is based on a comic. Worth seeing for the oracle scene alone.

Perfume3.5

2006.08.28

Real-life characters well acted, good humour, engaging and fun to watch. Why did they cancel these? Ah, yes, low ratings.

Firefly / Serenity5.0star

2006.03.01

It's SciFi, but different. It's a western, but different. It's excellent: the best characters, perfectly written and perfectly acted, with the best lines in great stories. If only there was more. If you watch nothing else, watch this.

Taxi/Taxi 2/Taxi 33.5

French action comedies written by Luc Besson. Funny in that "French Comedy" kind of way; the first is definately the best.

Collateral4.0

Pretty good Tom Cruise thriller; for once, he plays the bad guy.

Garden State4.5

I was surprised -- this is a seriously good film! On IMDb it's rated 8.0. A reviewer there said:

It is a film that speaks to an entire generation ... those of us born in the early-mid 80's who are in our late teens and early twenties trying to make it by in a environment that seems all at once so strange and yet so familiar.

I, Robot

Adaptation of Asimov's Robot stories, starring Will Smith. Doesn't hold to the letter of the books, but does hold to the spirit -- and beautifully made. Something for the action fan and the S-F fan and the philosophy fan. And Will Smith just gets better.

Band of Brothersstar

The best, most gripping WWII mini-series ever -- and all the characters and events are real. Thrilling, frightening, terrific.

Alien, Aliens, Alien3, Alien: Resurrection

Classic S-F Horror/Thriller films.
