5.0 out of 5 stars Breathtaking., 20 Dec. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Vertigo [DVD] (DVD)
Vertigo is without a doubt one of the best films ever made which is strange considering when it first came out it was poorly recieved. Since then it has influenced many directers among them Depalma and David Lynch.
Vertigo is a must see classic and arguably the best film ever made.

5.0 out of 5 stars Studio Ghibli at its best., 20 Dec. 2010
This review is from: Princess Mononoke [DVD] (DVD)
Prinncess Mononoke is a beautiful mythic film which tells the story of a young mans journey into the wilderness and his encounters with woodland spirits,demons and people intrested in there own materiel gain.
I believe this film is studio ghiblis best as the animation is flawless and at the same time the storyline has great depth.

5.0 out of 5 stars Chilling cult classic, 19 Dec. 2010
This review is from: The Stepford Wives [DVD] (DVD)
This is a chilling psychological thriller about how men would like women to be subservient and obey them and be the good house wife ,the extremes they are willing to go to make that happen in this film are shocking.
Arguably a little sexist towards men to say the least but none the less maybe true to some extent.
This film is a cult classic and better and truer than the new version.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent,darkly comic work of genius from Robert Altman., 19 Dec. 2010
This review is from: The Player [DVD] [1992] (DVD)
This film is one of the best hollywood satires ever made a must buy for any movie lover.
Tim robbins is a movie executive who screenwriters come to to get there scripts made into films when he starts recieving death threats from a screenwriter he turned down in the past his life takes a dramatic turn for the worst.
The thriller plot is great but conversations about films overheard in the background of the film are partly what makes this a very intresting film to watch again and again.
Tim robbins charecter is cooly played in what i believe is his best film.
if you dont watch this film you lose.

This review is from: John Woo Collection [DVD] (DVD)
Tarantino said that John Woo choreographs action like michealangelo painted the cistene chapel,well a exageration none the less if it wasnt for The Killer films like Resevoir dogs and pulp fiction wouldnt of been what they are,that is groundbreaking......so buy it

5.0 out of 5 stars Masterpieces, 26 Nov. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is an excellent box set and well worth buying.
In all three films polanski layers on suspense masterfully and the cast and acting is brilliant.
Rosmarys baby is arguably the best horror film ever made and Chinatown is arguably the best detective film ever made.
The tenant is shocking and morbid with polanskis dark sense of humour often lurking in the shadows its also a great film in its own right

4.0 out of 5 stars heart felt but to disjointed, 26 Nov. 2010
This review is from: Jesus' Son [DVD] [2000] (DVD)
This is a good film but the plot runs a little thin.
The comedy and artyness makes up for that though well worth a watch..

5.0 out of 5 stars slick ice cool shocker, 26 Nov. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Switchblade Romance [DVD] (DVD)
This film is an exellent shocker which is more than i can say for most contemporary horror films.
The style in which its shot keeps the viewer on edge until the end and the soundtrack ads to the hightened feeling of terror alexandre aja has created an other great modern slasher horror movie.Be warned this film is not for the faint hearted but a must buy for any horror fan
