Overall, it was a good movie even if it was completely predictable and borrowed the concept from The Count of Monte Cristo. I loved some of the camera angles and visual imagery.

Once again, Pacino does a fantastic job. He steals the show in this heartwarming movie with real truths.

This movie was fantastic even if it was only about 10 minutes long. I was impressed by the technological aspects of it, such as the disappearing martians and fade-outs.

Slapstick routines and funny dialogue abounds, and I actually found myself being entertained even though this kind of comedy isn't normally my thing.

Although it has fantastic atmosphere and a decent plot, I was surprised at the fairly high level of cheesiness (both in acting and dialogue).

I can see why many would consider it one of the greatest movies, but I personally don't like it. It's weird that I was so bored watching this considering I love the novel.

Uh...what? I'm not exactly sure what kind of story Kubrick was attempting to tell here, but the movie tried way too hard to make Alex sympathetic - which is ridiculous.

This was a nice little neo-noir film that sets up the plot, explains the characters' motives, and wraps up all the loose threads within an hour.

This film hasn't aged a bit, and the special effects still look spectacular. Its story is told more through cinematography than dialogue, and the most brilliant sequences were the space ships floating around to Strauss's music. The ending literally left me speechless, and a movie has never done that to me before.

This is the best sci-fi film I have ever seen.

To be honest, the plot of this psychological thriller was a bit weak and cliche, but the movie overall was fantastic due to DiCaprio's acting and Scorsese's direction.

Romantic dramas are a dime a dozen these days, but this movie had a rather original plot. In my mind, that puts this movie slightly above the average fare.

In many ways, this film lives up to the hype. There are some things left unexplained in the plot, but this problem is minor in light of the fact that everything else is done so well.

This is one of those rare movies that does the novel justice. I think the plot is overrated, but the main theme of the movie (violence against women) is portrayed throughout in interesting ways.

Leave it up to Quentin Tarantino to make a movie interesting by mere dialogue alone. I'm still not a huge QT fan, but I liked this more than all of his other movies except Pulp Fiction.

The cover art isn't lying when it says it's the funniest rock movie ever made. Fans of rock n' roll from the 60s through the 80s would love this, and also fans of mockumentaries. Although this spoof movie isn't for everyone, for those who 'get' it, it's great.

I loved this. Those who don't like the last act were probably expecting this to be an epic sci-fi alien movie. Instead, it's an homage to film-making and a family drama with some sci-fi on the side.

This wasn't so much an interesting psychological drama as it was a chance for Christian Bale to show his dedication to acting. Even with a cliche plot, the movie works due to the powerful visual imagery - both in the setting and in Bale's skeletal form.

Not bad for an indie psychological thriller. The setting and general atmosphere reminded me a lot of 12 Angry Men. Not a lot of movie makers have the guts to make a movie like this, and I applaud them for trying.

This black comedy still holds up well today, especially because it makes fun of beatnik society and because it doesn't take itself too seriously. Yep, there are still people who think like that today.

Love Exposure is the strangest movie I've ever seen, and that's saying something. This four hour epic can be described as a drama / comedy / romance / psychological / philosophical piece. It also involves betrayal, religious symbolism, and plenty of panty shots.

This wasn't terrible, but it was extremely cliche for a serial killer movie. The movie revolved around a rather unbelievable psychic ability, which seemed oddly out of place when it was trying so hard to be realistic.
