The Lives of Others (2006)

Wow, this movie was phenomenal. This may have been the best movie of last year. It is the academy award winner for best foreign film, and rightfully so. It is a foreign drama about the Stasi (German secret police) in East Germany in 1984, during the time of communism and the retreats across the wall, from east to west Germany. It is about a fight for humanity and was an incredible story. Truly sensational movie!

Scary Movie 4 (2006)

This movie was pretty funny. It's got some really great parts in it. I have only seen this one and the 3rd and I enjoyed the 3rd better. This one wasn't as consistently funny. But at the end of this movie there is a scene mocking Tom Cruise and Oprah and brought more laughs than I could stomach.

Big Fish (2003)

This is a brilliant movie. It reminds me of my granddad and the stories he'd tell. It is a great story and worth watching several times. It is also very interesting and the effects were seamless.

Once Upon A Time In The West (1969)

This movie is a classic western. Very traumatic at times, Sergio Leone uses the score, sound effects, and silence to portray the intensity of the movie. The copy I watched had very poor sound quality, but this movie was a huge success for its time.
