    The Matrix

    ★★★★★

    "The Matrix is everywhere. It is all around us. Even now, in this very room. You can see it when you look out your window, or when you turn on your television. You can feel it when you go to work, when you go to church, when you pay your taxes. It is the world that has been pulled over your eyes to blind you from the truth."

    The Matrix is as well crafted film as The Matrix system itself.…

    Heat

    ★★★★★

    "'Cause she's got a…GREAT ASS... and you got your head all the way up it!"

    Heat is one of the finest crime dramas ever made and one of the most amazing things about "Heat" is the scale of the film, it's nearly three hours long and packed to bursting with mind-blowing visuals.

    It's the story of Lieutenant Vincent Hanna (Al Pacino) and Neil McCauley (Robert De Niro), two charismatic men on opposite sides of the law, with its two superstar…

    The Lion in Winter

    ★★★★★

    "In a world where carpenters get resurrected, everything is possible."

    The Lion in Winter is a crowning achievement in cinematic storytelling. Adapted by Oscar-winning James Goldman from his witty, triumphant 1966 Broadway play that originally starred Robert Preston and Tony-winner Rosemary Harris, the story evolves around aging King Henry II mulling over a successor to the Plantagenet throne among his male progeny, while bringing his estranged, hateful clan together for the Christmas holidays.

    Sparks really do fly in this wickedly…

    Planet of the Apes

    ★★★★★

    "Get your stinking paws off me, you damned dirty ape."

    Planet of the Apes is a classic in every sense of the word. The makeup holds up remarkably well and the story is still as relevant today as it was in 1968. This film has withstood shifts in culture and time. It even helped inspire kids to study anthropology, archaeology and history. Incisive Sci-Fi probes the consequences of our species' collective decisions.

    The film follows George Taylor (Charlton Heston), who…

    Halloween

    ★★★★★

    "It's Halloween, everyone's entitled to one good scare."

    Halloween by John Carpenter is by far the best of the series. Halloween, the original "economically" produced horror film started the Slasher movie craze, made Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) a star and held the record for highest grossing Independent Film for many years. It's become a staple on TV during Halloween season.

    Halloween night 1963, little Michael Myers murders his older sister. All-hallows-eve 1978, Michael escapes from Smith's Grove sanitarium. Halloween…

    Addams Family Values

    ★★★★½

    "...and then Mommy kissed Daddy, and the angel told the stork, and the stork flew down from heaven, and put the diamond in the cabbage patch, and the diamond turned into a baby!"

    Addams Family Values is a great sequel to an excellent film. It takes everything the great first film did, adds a great new story and creates a great sequel. It's also a pleasant surprise to see the sequel live up to the original.

    The Addams Family is…
