    It's the kind of oddball heist movie I really enjoy. I get the criticisms that some here are stating, and they are valid, but none of that bothered me because of the sheer cinematic...

    A beautiful film. Sometimes just a way a movie is filmed is enough to captivate me, but there is so much more here. While it's not perfect, I was absorbed by the experience. It has a kind of...

    Land really disappointed me the first time I saw it. It's grown on me, but I still think it's a ridiculous concept. It has it's moments, but overall is kind of bland.

    It looks as though Kylo Ren may kill (or attempt to kill) Leia. This may just be an editing choice for the trailer, but if it's true I'm dismayed that they would go the matricide route after the...

    If this is true, I'm all for it. I've always hated that subplot and the fact that every film that followed (including Zombie's remake) used that as the jumping off point. I understand that this may...

    Not quite sure what to think of this. Never read the book, so I can't compare.

    I've seen that one too, but it's been a long time. I remember it being very faithful to the novel. The main drawback is the production values. This was a BBC production from the 70's and has that...
