Science Fiction, Adventure

Paul Atreides, a brilliant and gifted young man born into a great destiny beyond his understanding, must travel to the most dangerous planet in the universe to ensure the future of his family and his people. As malevolent forces explode into conflict over the planet’s exclusive supply of the most precious resource in existence-a commodity capable of unlocking humanity’s greatest potential-only those who can conquer their fear will survive.

Not quite as good as the Blade Runner though a nice cinematic experience. Patient viewers are rewarded the most but even Die Hard fans should appreciate this more than today's…

Adventure, Drama, Science Fiction

The adventures of a group of explorers who make use of a newly discovered wormhole to surpass the limitations on human space travel and conquer the vast distances involved in an interstellar voyage.

Might be the most personal Nolan‘s movie. And the best one. I mean, movies like Batman always have a certain limit due to not having a message, but this one…

Following the murder of her father by a hired hand, a 14-year-old farm girl sets out to capture the killer. To aid her, she hires the toughest U.S. Marshal she can find—a man with ‘true grit’—Reuben J. ‘Rooster’ Cogburn.

A perfectly crafted movie. The script doesn‘t go very far from the classic westerns, but the quality of directing, filming and acting earns this movie the highest rating.

A teacher opens a time capsule that has been dug up at his son’s elementary school; in it are some chilling predictions — some that have already occurred and others that are about to — that lead him to believe his family plays a role in the events that are about to unfold.

Misleading poster hides a little gem. While it has some patterns of a big budget movies, it certainly stays on its own with a dramatic and intelligent storyline in the…

Young hobbit Frodo Baggins, after inheriting a mysterious ring from his uncle Bilbo, must leave his home in order to keep it from falling into the hands of its evil creator. Along the way, a fellowship is formed to protect the ringbearer and make sure that the ring arrives at its final destination: Mt. Doom, the only place where it can be destroyed.

As you see in this site, I like weird movies. But when it comes to The Lord of the Rings, I have to be with the majority and say, yah,…

In the deep south during the 1930s, three escaped convicts search for hidden treasure while a relentless lawman pursues them. On their journey they come across many comical characters and incredible situations. Based upon Homer’s ‘Odyssey’.

Pure art in a form of adventure comedy. Every detail is taken care of, even the color palette. I love how well does the folk music fit into the movie,…

Adventure, Comedy, Fantasy

King Arthur, accompanied by his squire, recruits his Knights of the Round Table, including Sir Bedevere the Wise, Sir Lancelot the Brave, Sir Robin the Not-Quite-So-Brave-As-Sir-Lancelot and Sir Galahad the Pure. On the way, Arthur battles the Black Knight who, despite having had all his limbs chopped off, insists he can still fight. They reach Camelot, but Arthur decides not to enter, as “it is a silly place”.

I’ve never expected a 1975 movie to look this fresh. It rivals and tops many modern comedies. It’s intelligently stupid and hilarious, which is quite an achievement of the director.…

Drama, Adventure

A man is forced to confront a dangerous female jaguar and his own past through the sacrificial killing of the beast he has grown to love.

One of these nice findings on TV. It’s calm, emotional, just like the story it tells.

A teenager finds himself transported to an island where he must help protect a group of orphans with special powers from creatures intent on destroying them.

I was intrigued from the start, but then followed a second quarter filled with clichés to the extent that I started to think turning it off. Lucky me I didn’t.…

Adventure, Comedy, Drama

Ricky is a defiant young city kid who finds himself on the run with his cantankerous foster uncle in the wild New Zealand bush. A national manhunt ensues, and the two are forced to put aside their differences and work together to survive.

Much better than Jojo Rabbit, which I turned off after a few minutes. In contrast, this one is clever, unique and heartfelt, and the actors are simply great.
