Spartacus is a hell of a movie, even if Kubrick didn't have full control over it.

The Long Goodbye (1973)

Moon (2009)

A quite interesting Sci-Fi drama that explores the ethics of cloning.
Sam Rockwell does an amazing job as basically the only actor we see and ultimately carries the whole film. The...

Re: The Personal Recommendation Hall of Fame II

Almodovar is one of the greatest directors of today's non-american cinema. I'd say even the greatest. I should pick more films by him in later HoFs.

cricket, check "Talk to Her" by him. It's...

Yeah, but the thing is that it gets too serious sometimes for a rom com. That was what I disliked about it. It never seemed to decide if it wanted to be a 007/Hitchcock kind of film or a pure...

Yes, it was an interrogation, but her rection when she finds out the truth is everything but believable, IMO. Besides, she was in advantage so many times, knowing stuff about him without him being...

This is the last year I've made the effort to see them all. Shape of Water was, in my opinion, the worst of the bunch. It annoyed me so much that I basically gave up on the Oscars. And yeah, Phantom...
