Posted by BulletProofPoet on February 6, 2011 in Movie Ratings & Reviews |

In no particular order:


True Grit (2010)
King Kong (2005)
3:10 To Yuma (2007)
The Magnificent Seven (1960)
Cape Fear (1991)
Dawn of the Dead (2004)
The Departed (2006)
A Fistfull of Dollars (1964)
The Fly (1986)
Insomnia (2002)
Scarface (1983)
The Ten Commandments (1956)
The Thing (1982)
The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari (2005) – I saw this performed as a play at a local college a few years ago. Wonderful!
The Champ (1979)
Dark Water (2005) – This version gets a bum rap but I enjoyed it.
Halloween (2007) – Its sequel was disgusting, appalling and an insult to the franchise, but this was actually quite good.
Heat (1995)
The Lake House (2006) – I don’t care that it’s Keanu Reeves and the film has a sub-7 rating at the IMDB, I liked it!
Let Me In (2010)
Pure Luck (1991) – This movie only has a 5.0 rating at the IMDB, but I tell you, I don’t think I ever laughed so hard at a movie! Martin Short was a comedic genius! That it only has a 5.0 is a travesty.
Quarantine (2008)
The Toy (1982)
Vanilla Sky (2001)
The Vanishing (1993)
Nosferatu the Vampyre (1979)
Dirty Rotten Scoundrels (1988)
