The glance that makes holes in the silver screen

Varastettu kuolema (1938) - 8.5/10
I'm beginning to believe that Nyrki Tapiovaara might have been one of the most talented film makers in the history of Finland. Too bad that all of his movies that I've seen are in terrible condition, especially the soundtracks, and this one isn't an exception. Often I had hard time trying to hear what people said but luckily Tapiovaara is such a visual storyteller.

Really? I probably agree with Kurugen, with my score being about a 7 instead. It's all right but nothing spectacular. Especially compared to Rear Window, Rope, Vertigo, Rebecca, etc.

I've always liked The Birds.
9/10 for me.

Everything else you mentioned (except Vertigo) gets a 10/10.

The Birds is better than Rear Window and Vertigo of that list, at least. I wasn't a big fan until I rewatched it over the summer. Yeah, it's pretty much all style, but what style!

Battle of the Bulge (1965) 7/10

The film is based on true events but it is historically innaccurate in terms of characters. However, if you're familiar with the story, the film is pretty damn good as a movie expierience. The battle sequences are nicely done.

Flying Leathernecks (1951) 6/10

Pretty good, not great John Wayne, Robert Ryan war film.

Battle of the Bulge was awful if memory serves.

I like some of the action sequences, especially the tank battle at the end. There was also some scenes between Henry Fonda and Charles Bronson I enjoyed. I love these old war films.

I think Bronson and Fonda only had one or two scenes together, and I seem to recall their interaction being limited to Bronson pouring Fonda coffee. The movie just seemed fake - I loved how there are deserts in Belgium in the middle of January - the story slow, the cast going through the motions, and the climax contrived and ridiculous. Sure, it had it's moments - the sequences dealing with the German paratroopers disguised as MPs, the Malmedy Massacre scene, and Robert Shaw's excellent performance as the fanatical Panzer commander - but on the whole it's one of the weakest of its type.

Oh, I didn't say it was one of the best of the genre. I just like some things about it.

Body of Lies  - Overlong, overboring, overknown. I'd give it a 5\10 were it not for Di Caprio's presence which earns him 3 points less- 2\10.

It must be pretty good then. I can't wait to see it.

Forbidden Planet - 7-8/10 - I was really impressed with this film, it far superceded my expectations. It's inevitably dated and a bit slow and stiff (especially in Walter Pidgeon's lengthy exposition sequence) but the set design, special effects and the unique electronic soundtrack are all wonderful, especially considering when it was made. I'll have to digest it a bit before I decide on a rating.

The soundtrack IS interesting.

As for the rest, it's difficult to evaluate as it was subsequently repackaged as Star Trek.
