1. The Phantom (1996)
PG | 100 min | Action, Adventure, Comedy
The Phantom, descendent of a line of African superheroes, travels to New York City to thwart a wealthy criminal genius from obtaining three magic skulls which would give him the secret to ultimate power.
Votes: 30,855 | Gross: $17.30M
An enjoyable superhero action movie. I have no complaints at all about the movie, and it was pretty fun.
2. Spartacus: Blood and Sand - Motion Comic (2009– )
A four part comic book adaptation of the first season of Spartacus: Blood and Sand.
For what this was, I enjoyed it, but I'm just not really into the whole motion comic thing.
3. Nature Unleashed: Volcano (2005 Video)
PG-13 | 90 min | Action, Drama, Thriller
A volcanologist attempts to convince an Italian town that a nearby volcano is soon to blow, whilst trying to make sense of his tragic past, and how it might be linked to the coming disaster.
I actually liked this movie. It was interesting, though slow at parts, and the quality made it seem like a '90's movie.
4. Monster (2004–2010)
TV-14 | 24 min | Animation, Crime, Drama
A brilliant neurosurgeon living in Germany finds his life in utter turmoil after getting involved with a psychopath that was once a former patient.
The best anime I have ever seen. Period. Really, I though it was damn excellent, and I want to try to watch it once a year, sub-titled, of course.
5. Season of the Witch (2011)
PG-13 | 95 min | Action, Adventure, Fantasy
Fourteenth century knights transport a suspected witch to a monastery, where monks deduce her powers could be the source of the Black Plague.
Votes: 86,754 | Gross: $24.83M
Cage is hardly the best actor out there, but I enjoyed him, and Ron Perlman, in this movie. Overall, I liked this movie, and I really liked the plot twist at the end. Maybe I just like mindless action movies, but I thought this was a good movie.
6. Opposite Day (2009)
G | 88 min | Comedy, Family
The world goes backwards on Opposite Day. The kids become adults, and the adults become kids.
This was a terrible movie, and I'd never want anyone to have to watch this.
7. Alias Jesse James (1959)
Approved | 92 min | Comedy, Romance, Western
Outlaw T.J. "Jesse" James tries to kill insurance agent Milford Farnsworth, who has been mistaken for him in order to collect on a big policy.
I found this to be a pretty funny movie. There were a few scenes where I literally did laugh out loud. Bob Hope was a damn funny guy.
8. Jack the Giant Killer (1962)
G | 94 min | Adventure, Family, Fantasy
A farmboy turned knight must protect a princess from the schemes of an evil wizard.
I thought this was a really good fantasy movie. It had a fair-ish amount of mythical creatures, an interesting plot, and special effects that I really liked. Watch it when you have the time.
9. The Naked City (1948)
Not Rated | 96 min | Crime, Drama, Film-Noir
Two New York City detectives investigate the death of an attractive young woman. The apparent suicide turns out to be murder.
Well I'd never call this a bad movie, I can't say I enjoyed it all that much. It was okay, and I guess I'd watch it again, but I'd never wildly suggest people watch it, like I did after I saw Inception.
10. The Girl with a Pistol (1968)
M | 103 min | Comedy, Drama, Romance
A Sicilian woman, "dishonored" by her lover, goes to England with a pistol intending to murder him.
I could have done well without watching this movie. The thing was that it was half in Italian and half in English, but the English was so heavily-accented that I hardly noticed when it changed languages. That, plus the fact that I watched it with no sub-titles, makes this movie not one of the best I've seen.
11. Dead Man (1995)
R | 121 min | Drama, Fantasy, Western
On the run after murdering a man, accountant William Blake encounters a strange Native American man named Nobody who prepares him for his journey into the spiritual world.
Votes: 84,998 | Gross: $1.04M
While this was not at all what I was expecting when I started it, I really enjoyed this movie, and I thought it was a pretty interesting one too.
12. Buster & Chauncey's Silent Night (1998 Video)
G | 48 min | Animation, Comedy, Family
Animated story about the creation of the song "Silent Night".
Not much to say. A short, semi-amusing children's story is all this was.
13. The Man Who Knew Too Much (1934)
Not Rated | 75 min | Crime, Mystery, Thriller
A man and his wife receive a clue to an imminent assassination attempt, only to learn that their daughter has been kidnapped to keep them quiet.
While I still like the 50's version more, that's probably just because, for one thing, I love Jimmy Stewart, and two, I grew up with that one. This one was okay, and it certainly had its moments, but it still doesn't beat the 50's one.
14. Play the Game (2009)
PG-13 | 105 min | Comedy, Romance
A young ladies' man teaches his dating tricks to his lonely, widowed grandfather, and plays his best mind games to meet the woman of his dreams.
Votes: 2,514 | Gross: $0.66M
I liked this. It was a fun, romantic comedy with some fun characters.
15. After Innocence (2005)
Unrated | 95 min | Documentary
A gripping, emotionally charged film that follows wrongfully convicted men freed by DNA evidence after decades in prison as they struggle to transition back into society.
Director: Jessica Sanders
Votes: 743 | Gross: $0.11M
This was a good, though outdated, documentary on how some prisoners, even after having been proven innocent, are trapped behind bars. If you didn't already question the United States justice system, you will after watching this movie.
16. The Last of the Mohicans (1992)
R | 112 min | Action, Adventure, Drama
Three trappers protect the daughters of a British Colonel in the midst of the French and Indian War.
Votes: 138,653 | Gross: $75.51M
This was an okay movie, though I can't say I much like Daniel-Day Lewis as an actor. Overall I have more positive than negative memories about this movie, but it certainly isn't a favorite of mine.
17. Fearless (2006)
PG-13 | 104 min | Action, Biography, Drama
A biography of Chinese Martial Arts Master Huo Yuanjia, who is the founder and spiritual guru of the Jin Wu Sports Federation.
Votes: 70,185 | Gross: $24.63M
I quite liked this movie, and I thought it had excellent fighting scenes. The story lost me for a little around half-way in, to be honest, but besides that, I thought this was a pretty good movie.
18. The Emperor's New Clothes (1987)
G | 85 min | Comedy, Family, Musical
In Europe several several centuries ago, a group of prisoners about to be executed are freed as part of the celebration of the upcoming marriage of the emperor's daughter, Princess Gilda, ... See full summary »
Though it had some amusing parts, I can't say I enjoyed this movie much.
19. Private Hell 36 (1954)
Approved | 81 min | Crime, Drama, Film-Noir
When 2 detectives steal $80,000 from a dead robber, one of them suffers from a guilty conscience which could lead to murder.
For what this movie was, I liked it, and I thought it was overall an interesting movie, though it seemed more 40's than 50's to me.
20. Dr. T & the Women (2000)
R | 122 min | Comedy, Drama, Romance
A wealthy gynecologist's ideal life is thrown into turmoil when the women closest to him begin to affect his life in unexpecting ways.
Votes: 17,042 | Gross: $13.11M
I'll admit that while I was, and still slightly am, generally conflicted about how I feel about this movie, I'll say I liked it. It was damn odd, but there were some scenes I really liked in the movie, and I enjoyed Richard Gere.
21. Before Stonewall (1984)
Unrated | 87 min | Documentary, History
The history of the Gay and Lesbian community before the Stonewall riots began the major gay rights movement.
Votes: 685 | Gross: $0.02M
A very interesting documentary on homosexuals before the Stonewall riots. There were a lot of interesting stories told in the movie, and even more amazing to me is that I didn't really notice any bias, even though this was done in the 80's. I liked this, and would suggest others give it a try.
22. Stander (2003)
R | 111 min | Action, Biography, Crime
The life and career of Andre Stander, a South African police officer turned bank robber.
Votes: 7,868 | Gross: $0.02M
I liked Thomas Jane in The Punisher, and I liked him in this. I thought this was a good movie with some very interesting scenes, plus the fact that it really is based off a true story makes it all the more enjoyable.
23. Private Lessons (2008)
Not Rated | 105 min | Drama
An aspiring tennis player is taken under the wing of an established player as his family life falls apart.
I'm not sure how close this is to actually portraying real conversations in France, but even conversations here are extremely open, more open than any conversations I've had with my family. It was an interesting, and in some ways, disturbing movie, and overall, I guess I liked it.
24. Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi (2008)
Not Rated | 167 min | Comedy, Drama, Music
A breathtaking, goose flesh igniting, awe inspiring love journey of an ordinary man Suri and his 'total opposite' love Taani.
Votes: 40,833 | Gross: $2.07M
This movie made me realize how damn much I loved Indian romantic comedy movies. I enjoyed a lot of the songs in the movie, and I thought it had a really good plot. I have to say I love this movie. I'd suggest everyone watch it, sub-titled, of course.
25. The English Surgeon (2007)
TV-14 | 93 min | Documentary
This documentary offers a glimpse into the life of an English neurosurgeon (Henry Marsh) situated in Ukraine as we are exposed to the overwhelming dilemmas he has to face and the burden he has to carry throughout his profession.
An interesting documentary on how an English doctor was/is helping some people in Ukraine. The main thing I learned from the movie is how underdeveloped Ukraine is as a country. And I thought the U.S. had a bad health-care system.
26. Shaka Zulu (1986)
300 min | Action, Biography, Drama
A historical account on the life of the Zulu King Shaka.
A very enjoyable ten episode mini-series, I really liked the guy who played the title character, Shaka Zulu. While I'm not positive how historically accurate it is, as a mini-series, I thought it was a good one.
27. Don't Give Up the Ship (1959)
Approved | 89 min | Comedy
John Paul Steckler was the Junior Officer aboard a destroyer when WWII ended. He gets stuck with the job of sailing the ship to the states to be decommissioned. Now years latter, no one ... See full summary »
My mom is a huge fan of Jerry Lewis, and while I certainly don't always enjoy his form of comedy, I did like this movie. I thought it was pretty fun.
Unrated | 97 min | Documentary
Menachem Daum, the son of holocaust survivors, and a New York Orthodox Jew worries that both of his sons, full time yeshiva students who live with their families in Israel, are becoming ... See full summary »
Votes: 156 | Gross: $0.05M
An interesting look into a Jewish man and his two 'extremist' Jewish sons. A lot of interesting things happen in the movie, and it helped me understand just a little more about the Jewish culture and the effects of the Holocaust.
29. Walk on Water (2004)
R | 103 min | Drama, Mystery, Thriller
Following the suicide of his wife, an Israeli intelligence agent is assigned to befriend the grandchildren of a Nazi war criminal.
Votes: 6,365 | Gross: $2.71M
I thought this was a pretty good movie, and I quite liked the main actor.

Not Rated | 97 min | Drama, Romance

Votes: 25,917 | Gross: $0.46M
I loved this movie, and the ending song 'I Wanna Go to Marz' was the absolute perfect song to play during the credits. This was a very good movie.
31. Africa First: Volume One (2010)
Not Rated | 122 min | Drama
An anthology of four short films from new African filmmakers.
An interesting anthology movie, I quite liked the first sci-fi story, was okay with the second, and longest, musical story, completely had no idea what was happening in the third fantasy story, and liked the very depressing last story.
32. Beowulf (1999)
R | 95 min | Action, Adventure, Fantasy
In a besieged land, Beowulf must battle against the hideous creature Grendel and his vengeance seeking mother.
While this could be in the 'so bad, it's good' category, I liked the movie. Christopher Lambert was an interesting actor, but the adaptation of Beowulf was laughable.
33. Rain Fall (2009)
R | 111 min | Action, Crime, Drama
A hit man looks to protect the daughter of one of his victims against CIA assassins.
I thought this was an okay movie, but if Gary Oldman hadn't appeared, I doubt I'd have liked it all that much.
34. My Best Friend (I) (2006)
PG-13 | 94 min | Comedy
Catherine, refuses to believe that her business partner, the unlikeable François, has a best friend, so she challenges him to set up an introduction. Scrambling to find someone willing to pose as his best pal, François enlists the services of a charming taxi driver to play the part.
Votes: 5,958 | Gross: $1.42M
I thought this was a good, albeit semi-sad, movie, and I overall liked it.
35. Blood River (2009)
Not Rated | 104 min | Horror, Thriller, Western
A psychological thriller, which explores the destruction of a young couple's seemingly perfect marriage.
While I'm not sure I liked the overall message at all, I thought the movie was interesting, and it was an acceptable horror movie.
36. Black Sabbath (1963)
Not Rated | 92 min | Horror
Boris Karloff hosts a trio of horror stories concerning a stalked call girl, a vampire-like monster who preys on his family, and a nurse who is haunted by her ring's rightful owner.
An interesting anthology horror film, I enjoyed the first story about the woman who stole from someone who had just died, completely forget what the second story was, and I liked the third story, for what it was. Overall, I'd say this was an okay movie.
37. It Waits (2005)
Not Rated | 88 min | Horror
A lone female park ranger tries to track down a vicious creature killing various people and terrorizing her at a remote national park.
Unlike many people, it seems, I actually liked this movie, and I thought it was a good horror movie. It's not amazing, certainly, but I though it was better than a 2.8, or whatever the movie currently has.
38. Gingerdead Man 3: Saturday Night Cleaver (2011)
Not Rated | 78 min | Comedy, Fantasy, Horror
The gingerdead man travels back in time to 1976 and carries out an epic disco killing spree.
This movie was something else. I don't want to say I liked it, and I thought some parts were just so stupid, but I can't say that I hated it, even though I wanted to be able to say that before I started watching it.
39. Office Killer (1997)
R | 82 min | Comedy, Crime, Horror
A mousy office worker accidentally kills one of her coworkers, then proceeds to bump off a few others.
Votes: 1,801 | Gross: $0.04M
This was an okay 'slasher', and I enjoyed some of the characters, but I can't say it was all that great of a movie.

R | 105 min | Crime, Drama, Thriller
A man's life begins to unravel when his mistress brings him a bag of cash.
Votes: 5,236 | Gross: $0.05M
This was an interesting thriller movie, and while I did like the plot twist, it didn't completely save the movie. I would call this movie average.
41. Dracula III: Legacy (2005 Video)
R | 86 min | Horror
In the near future, Uffizi and Luke travel to the remote reaches of war torn Romania to rescue Elizabeth and finish the vampire once and for all. Along the way, they encounter TV news journalist and a corps of rebels trying to fight the vampire uprising which plagues their country.
I have to say, I really enjoyed this movie, and I watched this before even watching the previous entries in the series. I just thought this was a good story, and I loved the last twenty minutes.
42. Revenge of the Ninja (1983)

45. Hail the Conquering Hero (1944)
Passed | 101 min | Comedy, War

I thought this movie was just great. It was completely funny, yet very serious at the same time. It involved some great political scenes, and overall I loved this movie.
46. The Census Taker (1984)
Not Rated | 95 min | Comedy, Crime
Exasperated by his intrusions, a family shoots a census taker and tries to hide his body from a detective.
This. Movie. Was. Terrible. If there was ever a movie I wish I'd never seen, it'd be this one. Watch it only if you like terrible movies.
47. Best in Show (2000)
PG-13 | 90 min | Comedy
A colorful array of characters compete at a national dog show.
Votes: 51,808 | Gross: $18.62M
