I'd go Sith - the scope of the thing alone makes it worthwhile, and it's near perfect whenever nobody is talking. However, Jedi does have the best moment in either trilogy with the Luke/Vader duel.

Kong did have an unusually enormous Thursday-to-Friday percentage increase (more than double what any of the LOTR films did). Hopefully that bodes well for long-term prospects and isn't just a fluke....

The last two reels were pitch-perfect. Up until then it was unfocused and hollow. The World Cup scenes were chaotic and ugly. Radcliffe and the whole adult cast was good (Snape's silent business was...

I picked up the DE two days ago at Best Buy. Weirdly, it was on sale for $19.99, the same price as the 1-disc, and they also had the same sticker price ($22.99). I don't know if this is specific to...

There was a lot in this movie (BONER) that made me cringe, but there was also a lot to love. While I'm mixed overall on the movie, there were scenes and moments, (The early "My Father's Gun" scene,...

This movie goes wrong in every possible way. It's crass, stupid, poorly acted, and hamhandedly directed. It's so "Hollywoodized," so completely designed to pander to fourteen-year-olds, that it...

I love both directors, but I'd say that Cronenberg almost gets it right about Tarantino. I think that the whole reason QT returns to 70's genre influences so often is that, to him, there is a...

That was excellent, the best movie I've seen so far this year. Just a haunting, visually elegant, humane, and ultimately devastating film. If the Academy would like to be at all relevant, they...

I agree. This movie was just total didactic, self-righteous, simplistic, trite nonsense. And the ending is a Magnolia ripoff, period. Magic cloak my ass.
