Was not a giant fan of the newer version of The Thing (yes, I know it's a prequel). I generally love Joel Edgerton and Mary Elizabeth Winstead, but I wasn't too much of a fan of the plot. And I thought that some of the CGI was pretty weak...The ending, however, was pretty cool...

Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan is my favorite of the original Star Trek movies.

Friday the 13th (the original) rocks. I've already expressed my opinion on that one in a couple of other threads...

Haven't been a fan of either of the new Star Wars movies (the ones in the proper canon), but I thought Rogue One was pretty good...I didn't expect much from it but really liked how it turned out...

Yeah, "Blue" was also my favorite of the trilogy.

Cemetery Man was okay, Rupert Everett was good in that (I think that's who it was). I believe I read once that Scorsese really liked this movie.

The Fearless Vampire Killers I wasn't a big fan of, even though I typically love Polanski films. That said, I've never been able to see Polanski's Director's Cut, so I might change my mind once I have a chance to view that...

Bronson is AMAZING. Love Tom Hardy in that...

Jurassic Park remains a fun popcorn movie but I actually rewatched it this year and still feel like the third act drags a little bit...I love the opening hour or so, though...And it's way, way better than the rest of the movies in the series...

The Hunt is fantastic. Just fantastic. Mads Mikkelson is great, and the storyline is just so harrowing. I've shown this one to several friends and they've all enjoyed it...

Mad Max: Fury Road. It's a good movie, but I do feel like it's a tad overrated. Tom Hardy was great, as usual...

The Hunter. If this is the one starring Willem Dafoe and Sam Neill, then I'd say it's pretty decent entertainment, but I probably wouldn't even have it in my top 100...But to each, his own...

Good picks...

Love Lawrence of Arabia. Saw that when I was in High School and have probably sat through it four or five times since...I got that awesome Deluxe Blu-Ray boxset that came with a decent book, the soundtrack, and a film cell...Peter O'Toole delivers one of the all-time greatest performances...And the scope of the movie is just epic...Sad to think about how the vast majority of it would be CGI if they did it today...There's just no way they could afford to pay for and coordinate all of those extras...

Dr. Strangelove. Initially, I didn't quite get this, but it's subsequently grown on me since I've gotten older...I've been meaning to pick up the Criterion Blu-Ray release...Peter Sellers is hilarious in his roles...

Rosemary's Baby isn't my favorite Polanski, but it's a solid movie, and I personally like it much, much more than The Exorcist...

Paper Moon is solid Bogdanovich. I think I like The Last Picture Show and Targets a bit more, but it was great seeing Ryan get to act with his daughter Tatum (who pretty much steals the movie). The black-and-white cinematography is also stunning...

Rebecca isn't one of my favorite Hitchcocks...

A Clockwork Orange is great. Have the movie poster posted up near my front door.
