Movies I can't wait to see

People who added this item 1654 Average listal rating (892 ratings) 6.9 IMDB Rating 6.8


Release date (U.S.) : 27 May 2011

directed by : Terrence Malick

with : Brad Pitt, Sean Penn

plot : Tree of Life is a period piece centered around three boys in the 1950s. The eldest son of two characters (Brad Pitt and Jessica Chastain) witnesses the loss of innocence....

Why do I want to see this ?
I'm a big fan of Terrence Malick, especially "The New world" and it has just won the Golden Palm at Cannes.

My verdict :
Many people won't get this movie and will loathe it. It is definitely the least accessible movie directed by Mallick and I'm not sure I did get half of it but it doesn't matter. I touched me very deeply.

Adam Sandler + Hottest women on Earth = ?!?@#$

Billy Madison (1995)


Victim: Bridgette Wilson

US Gross: $25,588,750

Note: That's where it all started... Adam's Sandler first starring movie. Honestly, I saw it and thought it was a rather average and moronic comedy. if it had been flopped, we may have missed be all those stupid movies... However, it became a success and the blue-print for all the following comedies starring Sandler. Actually, they all could be called "Billy Madison 2", "Billy Madison 3", "Billy Madison 4", ...

Nerds + Gorgeous chicks = ?!?@#$%?!

People who added this item 3899 Average listal rating (2582 ratings) 6.5 IMDB Rating 7.1


Victim: Catherine Keener




Victim: Elizabeth Banks

Note: It is this movie that really started the all craze about Judd Apatow. Honestly, the gap between Steve Carell and Catherine Keener is not that huge but still she is way more sexy than him. Or maybe I don't fall for Steve Carell charms...

P.S.: I wasn't sure but the giraffe confirmed this. Seth Rogen & Elizabeth Banks hook up in 40 Year Old Virgin. You only see them together in the wedding scene at the end for a brief moment. Therefore I can't find a picture of it.

Top 20 most underrated movies

People who added this item 1150 Average listal rating (670 ratings) 6.5 IMDB Rating 6.7
The New World (2005)


Note : Terrence Malick has directed only 4 movies in almost 40 years. This movie is his least appreciated one.

It is actually my favorite (I still have to see "Days of heaven" though). To me, it is the movie with the best poetic feeling ever. It is like watching a poem but not with words but with images and sound. Incredible.

Better than : Badlands, The Thin Red line (those are two fine movies though)

Top 20 most overrated movies

People who added this item 1621 Average listal rating (998 ratings) 5.7 IMDB Rating 6.4
Bean (1997)
Why is it overrated ?
When it came out, it was very popular but I didn't went to go at all but after 2 weeks, a friend convinced me and we saw it at the movie theater. I was completely stoned and the movie theater was packed and everybody was laughing. Except me... I had this strange feeling that they were all against me or something... Anyway, I remember half way through the movie, there was this joke that you have seen like 100 hundreds time in the trailer and it was really this stupid joke. I could count in my head,in 5 seconds,everybody will laugh like crazy... 1...2...3...4...5 !! BOUM !!! and it was like a big wave of laughs coming over me.... and I was thinking "Am I the only who thinks it stinks ?" It was just terrible...

what I would rather watch : Four weddings and a funeral (2004) (Rowan Atkinson has a small part in it !)

Memento (2000)


Roger Ebert didn't find this movie as good as I did so I put my own point of view.

"I think this movie is really amazing. At the end, you are so confused. I'm sure a lot of people are annoyed by this but I love this feeling. Even if you have more information than the main character, Leonard, at the end, it is still a big blur. How long has been he on the run ? 1 year ? 2 years ? longer ? How many John D. has he killed ? Was his wife killed or did he made it up ? Some many questions that remain even if you watch the movies 20 times. I just think it is fascinating. "

Interesting failures

People who added this item 4261 Average listal rating (2730 ratings) 6.8 IMDB Rating 7.1


Note: Being a Kubrick fan, I was really anxious about seeing this. Eventually, there was a lot of good things about it. First of all, it looked great, something expected when it is directed by Steven Spielberg and I was rather captivated by the story. But unfortunately, you miss the Kubrick touch, going the extra mile into the human psyche making this movie a real masterpiece. Instead, you may remain in the Spielberg comfort zone, with great visuals but little too sentimental and not challenging enough.

Why should you watch it anyway?
Kubrick + Spielberg ! Do you need anymore reasons?!?

Why her ?

When picking a leader for my all-female team there wasn’t any choice other than the woman that represented female bad-assery in the 70s, 80, and 90s: The Alien-fighting Ellen Ripley. Even though she’s done all sorts of genres and many other films (including most recently Avatar), Weaver remains the top choice to command an female commando team.

After several years without contact, Martijn visits his sister Daantje. He tells her he is going to make a documentary from her life. One of the few movies completely shot in POV shots. It is very original and there is a very good perfomance by Kim van Kooten.

The history of CGI

People who added this item 358 Average listal rating (247 ratings) 6.7 IMDB Rating 7
Westworld (1973)


Note : Yul Brynner plays a gunslinging android in Michael Crichton’s ‘70s sci-fi Western – think the terminator crossed with an evil Shane – a film notable too for being the first major motion picture to use CGI. Brynner’s robo-vision, a pixelated POV digitally processed by computer graphics whizzes John Whitney Jr. and Gary Demos of Information International, Inc. (better known as ‘Triple-I’ or ‘III’), was truly revolutionary. According to our sources, each frame of footage was color-separated and scanned so it could be converted into rectangular blocks, then colour was added to make a coarse pixel matrix that could be output back to film. Presto, infra-red androidvision. Simple really, when you think about it.

Ambush (2001)


Note: While escorting an elderly man to an undisclosed location, The Driver is confronted by a van full of armed men and is warned that the old man has stolen a large amount of diamonds. The old man claims to have swallowed the diamonds and that the men will likely cut him open to retrieve them. The Driver decides at the last minute to help him, participating in a car chase and shootout with the van. The Driver eventually evades his pursuers and watches their destruction. He then delivers the old man to a town nearby and asks the merchant if he did indeed swallowed the diamonds. The client merely chuckles and walks away. The Driver then leaves.
