All this talk about Spellbound and not one mention of its horrendous pacing?

Once Upon a Time in the West
This rivals anal fruitshakes made of female squirt juice as the best thing ever. Besides OUATIA.

North by Northwest - 9/10 - I bump my rating up with the second viewing. I might put this in my top three Hitchcocks. Interested parties may stick around for a full review.

Lion King II - I had high hopes for this, because I loved the story in the book, long time ago when I read it, but it let me down quite a lot. 6/10 seems fair.
The story is definitely a powerful one, but the way it was treated, the generic animated movie way (and note I'm deliberately using the word "movie", which I usually avoid), did leave a lot to be desired. The Czech text in the book I loved was actually written by a real writer, by real writer I mean someone who knows how to use his native language to great effect, and someone who won several awards for his writing. And the simple, short text by a skilled writer clearly wins over the film in this case.

Lion King II is awful. The first one is one of my favorite animated films but the sequel is irredeemably bad.

I'm watching the first one now and am inclined to reduce the rating of the previous to 5... it's realy incomparably worse. Wait, that's probably a contradiction. But it is like that. Even the Czech dubbing is worse. It's OK in the first, but in the sequel it's the typical, awful unnatural dubbing.
I still liked some elements of the sequel. I saw glimpses of some animated films that were much, much worse. I could watch this one and quite enjoy it, when I skipped the songs.

Never dared to watch that one.

As I wrote, I dared because I liked it in the book. Normally I avoid sequels of this type.

13th Warrior - perhaps 7,5/10?

I was convinced I already mentioned this one here when I watched it for the first time, but it seems not...
Well, it's not a masterpiece of art that would blow me away on first viewing - I had rather mixed feelings about it on first viewing, though I certainly found it more enjoyable than the average rating on IMDb would suggest. If nothing else, it had the interesting premise of an Arab among Vikings.
It's not masterpiece of art, but it's the kind of thing that grows on me - I watched it again today and enjoyed it a lot, it somehow seemed much better balanced than I remembered it... So I expect to regularly come back to it and always enjoy. There are moments and things I do not like (such as the armour people mention on IMDb - it being from a later era; when you have an eye for such things, it really disturbs you), it certainly could have been better in many aspects, but whatever. I do not expect it to be Leone or Kurosawa.
(One thing that I disike more than the armour, though, is the snake on the Wendol mother. It doesn't look like the kind of snake to live in Scandinavia, so, for a while, you'd thing they're actually in Amazonia or a similar place... at least it evoked such feelings in me.)
