    Replicas (2019)

    A fascinating movie with that raises all kinds of questions about morality and possibility. If this is the way the world is going, if this is where we are headed, I fear for the future. I saw it with not much in the way of expectations: mostly went because it was a Keanu Reeves movie. Turned out to be a good Keanu Reeves movie even tho a bit different for him. The "what if" features were great. I like a movie that actually has an interesting story, and this definitely has one; and one of my favorite kinds of stories comprise those in the wide range of "what if" stories that include sci-fi. It's full of subtle nods to cool B movies of the past, combines deeply moving, comedic, and stylized features; and is so free of artsy hi-brow ostentation. Also believe it or not this is really a very cool family movie. We need more movies that can deal with some tough family challenges and play out the "what ifs" of life in humane and believable ways. Oh and on top of everything else: there are some cool Jason Bourne type sequences and Bourne music tributes at Bourne-like moments ... very awesome IMHO but then I enjoy tributes like those. Likewise, there were cool "I Robot" elements - very appropriate and very well handled. 8/10
  2. This was a pretty fun topic for quite a while at the site.
  3. A little late responding to this but yes, I can honestly look someone dead in the eye and tell them that Matrix is the most important movie ever made, for the reasons I outlined. Godfather could have certainly made the list, not sure why Shawshank is one of the most important movies ever made. Your professor sounds.....misguided.

    The Lost World 1997

    I think 10 years is a good barometer.

    Bumblebee (2018)

    I'm on vacation next week. I'll probably see it. It's not that I think it'll be a bad film, it's just I didn't have any immediate interest in seeing it.

    Green Book (2018)

    Unequivocally one of the best films of the year. Funny script, touching script, two knockout performances and one hell of a journey both characters go on together. The Lip learns a lot about racism and himself but Doc also learns to live a little, stand up for himself and he learns to make friends. I loved the chemistry between Viggo and Ali. One of my faves of the year. 9.5/10
  7. It was dumped, not marketed and has been on the black market for about a month now.
  8. So you're saying this wont pass Black Panther to become the third highest grossing film of all time? That's a bold statement, Cotton.
  9. I have completed my top 36 but between now and the deadline I will try to see some more movies. Green Book, Venom, Beale Street, THuG and so on.
