Recent Movies: Decent Films are actually being made again...
(1 - 10 10=high)
Gladiator - 8
Best film of the year I have seen, cineamatography is excellent, and story is fantastic, acting was a little shallow. 2.5 hours can drag, but the constant action makes up for that.
U-571 - 8
Saving Private Ryan Under Water! Best Submarine movie in a long time, although it is quite action orientened, I feel it was done nicely. Also quite long. (get what you paid for)
Frequency - 6.5
Cheesy Story, yet mystery involves viewer, solid acting and overall a quality production. (Recommended as Movie to take girlfriend to.)
BattleField Earth - 2.5
(Have Not Seen, Will not be Seen!)
Just from reading the reviews and seeing the trailer, I realize I will never rent this movie. WaterWorld looks awsome compared to this.
Movies I am looking forward to!
Gone in 60 Seconds
Dinasour (gotta love Disney)
Feel Free to add comments or movies I have not listed!
I've been wanting to see U-571, hopefully it is as good as you say it is. Saving Private Ryan was a GREAT movie!
Thanks for your reviews.
I can't wait til Gladiator comes out on DVD, hehe!!!
I would like to see ALL of those movies. I will only see Battlefield Earth, though, if I can see it for FREE. The previews for all of those upcoming ones look pretty sweet.

The best thing about Battlefield: Earth is that I saw it for free. The worst part is that I stood in line for an hour to do so.
It starts out with cheesy opening credits and a bunch of 1970's made-for-TV-movie curtain wipes. The soundtrack is so loud you can't hear yourself think. I gave it the benefit of the doubt for about 5 minutes, until the scene where the hero leaves his village, and his gf gives him a necklace. She tells him, "Your mother gave me this before." *blink* *scratch head* *eat popcorn* "She died." I swear this woman learned to act from William Shatner.
Anyway, this is the worst movie I've seen since Warriors of Virtue (at least _that_ had ninja kangaroos.) It's not even worth seeing as a 'bad movie' movie. It's not worth renting. It's not worth downloading off of usenet. It's not even worth reading reviews of.
And dammit, they didn't even give out free e-meters at the preview, just a bunch of radio station bumper stickers.
yeah, they do
the movie is only 500 pages of the 1000 page book, the sequel will cover the second half
American Psycho was an interesting movie...the beginning was great, but then
the end of the movie was just way out of control. I did enjoy it, but boy, it was one weird movie!
I've seen both U-571 and Gladiator. both great movies. incidentally i just went to the MSI in chicago. they got a real u boat you can walk through and such. felt like being on the set of U-571
Gladiator was a 10!!
Can't wait for the X-men movie.
