    ★★★★★

    When there is no more room in hell, the dead will walk the earth.

    This is hands down the best zombie apocalypse movie of all time.

    One of the movies that made me who I am today. I snuck out to watch this masterpiece with my buddy when I was 14 for a midnight showing way back in 1980. Riding my bike back home at 3am was probably the scariest experience of my life.

    It's not as timeless as others…

    "There and Back Again: A Return to Middle Earth" (Extended Edition).

    “I AM NO MAN.”

    The love triangle between Eowyn, Aragorn and Arwen was always the weakest part of the movie trilogy for me. I've read that this was embellished more in the movies than the books. Her love for Aragorn was always doomed, and it relegated her to a stereotypical "damsel in distress." So when Eowyn, struggling in her bulky ill-fitting armor, takes on the Witch King, that was…

    First off, this is not a good movie. It's trying way too hard to be a mix of Tony Scott and Michael Bay. But oh man, you gotta admit this is a FUN ride.

    I've rewatched this too many times to count -- whenever I'm in the mood for some brainless entertainment. Taylor Kitsch is no Tom Cruise, but you can't help rooting for him with his relentlessness charisma.

    And the scenes with double amputee Gregory Gadson are inspiring.

    I kind of miss these bloated, dumbass action flicks ala Armageddon and Pearl Harbor.

    Seth: "Have you ever heard of... insect politics? Insects... don't have politics. They're very brutal. No compassion, no compromise. We can't trust the insect.

    I'd like to become... the first... insect politician. I'd like to, but, I'm afraid."

    Veronica: "I don't know what you're trying to say!"

    Seth: "I'm saying... I'm saying, I'm an insect... who dreamt he was a man, and loved it."

    "But now the dream is over... and the insect is awake.


    Such a masterpiece. Career performances…

    ""There's only so many PG-13 movies I can make before I get bored," says the filmmaker.

    Thank you James Wan for saying out loud what all mother-loving horror fans are thinking every time a scene cuts away from gore or a kill in a PG-13 horror movie.

    And then there's the choice quote from Wan the Man: " "You can take the boy out of horror, but you can never take the horror out [of] the boy."

    Dune is an absolute feast for the eyes and ears-- stunning cinematography accompanied by an immersive soundtrack that fits every scene like a glove.

    For those that have been lucky enough to have read the novel, you will be rewarded. I've been waiting for more than 35 years for what I consider the best science fiction story of all time. Tomorrow when I watch this with my sons, I'll get a sense of how this plays with those that don't…
