The soundtrack IS interesting.

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

That was my thought as well. I thought the analogy with The Tempest (oft-cited by critics) was VERY loose, myself.

Death Proof 8/10
Still great. Great dialogue, great characters, good stunts (and one great one), great music, good pacing. A great "little" Tarantino, without the whole "LOOK AT THE HUGE MOVIE I DID YES I DID IT I'M THE GREATEST" thing that was underlying Kill Bill.
And it gets better at each viewing (3rd viewing for me). I must admit the first time i saw it the movie seemed a little long to me, especially the first half. But it still represents the 2 biggest laughs i ever had in a movie theater:
1) the scene with Parks
3) the last 2 minutes

(yes, this post is a reaction of what i read a few pages ago  :-X )

ps: i only saw the long european version.

I'm happy you enjoyed it. It looks like you didn't take it as serious as many who bash it. It is a fun little movie with great parts throughout, especially that ending car chase which is highly memorable. And Kurt Russell created one of the coolest characters in years as Stuntman Mike.

Forbidden Planet - 7-8/10 - I was really impressed with this film, it far superceded my expectations.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.



A bit too talky and stagey but nonetheless a goodie.
A shame I hear a remake is in the works.
If The Day The Earth Stood Still and this can be remade then it must be open season on ANYTHING.

More like highly deja vu.
Impressive for a time when every car chase is riddled with CGI but putting it up against the greats and it pales by comparison.
Mostly because it borrows from the greats.
Seen it all before.

I just saw on IMDB that they're in pre-production for remaking Strangers on a Train. Add that to the list.

I have to agree with you on this. I prefer the car crash at the middle of the movie, which is not déjà vu and is likely to stay in movie history for the next decades.

My knowledge in car chases is a little limited but my favorite one is in Mad Max II.

Killer's Kiss (1955) - 6.5/10
What is a happy ending doing in a Kubrick movie?! The fight scene is among the best scenes Kubrick ever created but other wise it's nothing special although it's not bad either.

Gladiator - Good start with the battle against the barbarians, then usual hollywood crap. the arena fights are not as good as those in, say, Spartacus or Barabbas, 6\10

I actually didn't much care for the battle at the beginning, to be honest.

It gives you the impression a battle between Romans and barbarians could be really like that.

Yes, we've seen it before but I like what I seen. Very memorable for me. And it does compare to some of the greats which I'm a big fan of. Dirty Mary Crazy Larry, Bullitt, Vanishing Point, The French Connection, Smokey and the Bandit. Yes, this compares.

Sherlock Jr. - 8/10
I would have really liked it to be longer (it only runs 40 minutes), but it's much stronger than The General in my opinion in terms of Keaton's works.
