2001: A Space Odyssey (1968)
Stanley Kubrick’s 1968 science fiction masterpiece is without a doubt the film that changed it all for the genre. Before watching this film the only things I knew where the facts that many critics had it in their top ten lists of greatest movies of all time as well as the fact that the movie is mostly a visual and musical experience. After watching it I can tell why people love it so much this is by far the greatest and I mean GREATEST science fiction film that has ever been made and one of the greatest art films as well. This film was so advanced back when it was originally released that is almost unbelievable. Before this film the only types of ships we could see in science fiction were flying saucers but in 2001 we can see really believable ships, the type of ships you could have found in NASA at the time.
The film is so perfect it is very difficult to even begin to say how great it is. It is probably the first science fiction film that make people think, make people analyze, make adults interested in science fiction. Controversial is one of many adjectives that could be used to describe this film but if I were to use one it would be PERFECTION.

2012 (2009)
When I went to see this film with my girlfriend I knew it was gonna suck, the reason why I went to see it was because she wanted to watch it. As I said before I knew the flick was going to obviously suck but man this one really is a piece of crap. Just goes to show that Roland Emmerich’s only good feature is Independence Day. In this film Emmerich gives us the story of how a family, and the rest of the human race, tries to survive the disastrous effects of the prophecies of 2012.
This movie doesn’t really deserve much attention. The acting, directing and everything in it just sucks. The only reason why anyone should watch this flick is because they want to get entertained and nothing else. I am sure Emmerich can probably do better features in the future but he seriously must stop making disaster movies. Maybe he should go and do films from other genres. And Woody Harrelson was funny in his character but he chose a bad movie to be in, unless of course he did tit for the money because this picture gathered a whole lot of cash. To finish I would just like to say that you should go watch this flick only if you want to get entertained, but if you’re looking for something worth being nominated for an award then this is definitely not the picture you were looking for.

A Hard Day’s Night (1964)
            The 1964 box office hit A Hard Day’s Night gives us a great comedic musical experience and a closer look at both The Beatles’ life, which is filled with lots of work and lots of running cause they had to escape the masses of women from ripping them apart, and how show business is, which is filled with lots of demands which the Beatles basically avoided and decided to go and have fun. This musical comedy captures how The Beatles impacted Great Britain at the time for they were not as big in the United States just yet. After this movie came out The Beatles were the biggest thing in the world and Richard Lester became one of the biggest names in movies and I can see why not to mention that the Beatles demonstrated that they could also be funny after writing the script along Alun Owen. Not only does it have a great story and great songs but the film shows us the fun side of The Beatles and it shows us how they try to get out of show business for at least five minutes and enjoy themselves, we can see this in the first half of film. In the second half of the film we can look at The Beatles preparing themselves, if you can say that because they don’t like to rehearse or anything, for a TV special but they got one little problem: Ringo’s gone missing after receiving bad advice from Paul’s grandfather who is nothing but a troublemaker in the film, but his troublemaking adds to the fun moments in the film so it’s okay if he wants to be a troublemaker. At the end of the film we can see how the Beatles impact British and worldwide culture itself as they play in the TV special. We can see the faces of thousands of fans who are shouting, jumping, dancing and some of them even crying out of the excitement. 
            This film is also one of the first films to be released from the pop musical sub-genre which came in the early 1960s in Britain. Other films from this “movement”, if you can say that, are Expresso Bongo, The Young Ones, Summer Holiday, Wonderful Life (all of which starred Cliff Richard) and Catch Us If You Can starring Dave Clark Five. Pop-musicals focused on bringing acts from the British pop invasion and youth culture to the big screen. 
            A Hard Day’s Night and the rest of the films mentioned above were probably the inspiration to create music videos because the artists are basically using film as a medium to show their music. Some artists even hire movie directors to write them a narrative based on the song or songs so they can make the film or video. Examples of these are Michael Jackson’s Thriller directed by John Landis (National Lampoon’s Animal House, 1979 & The Blues Brothers, 1980), The Killers’ Bones directed by Tim Burton (Edward Scissorhands, 1991 & Alice In Wonderland, 2010) and most recently Kanye West with his short film Runaway based on his latest album “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy” which he directed but was written by Hype Williams who has directed music videos since 1991. 
On the other side of things film directors often compose the soundtracks of their films using pop music or any other type of music that has the Billboard charts to bring audience or sometimes they even use musicians as their actors like for example David Bowie in 1976’s The Man Who Fell to Earth and Sting in Quadrophenia (Franc Roddam, 1979). However it is unusual for pop artists to be better known for their film work.
            In conclusion, A Hard Day’s Night captures how big the Beatles were becoming and how big they became, and not only that but it is probably one of the biggest inspirations for the creation of the music video. Filled with lots of jokes and lots of goofing around by the Fab Four, A Hard Day’s Night is a great movie experience for the entire family. I personally was quite amazed why this movie didn’t win any awards but after looking at the year it came out I immediately knew why it didn’t win, Disney’s Mary Poppins came out in 1964 as well so yeah, everybody went crazy for Mary Poppins.

A Clockwork Orange (1971)
            The 1971 suspense thriller by Stanley Kubrick is certainly one of his greatest works. This film set in a not so far future, shows us the life of Alex De Large, a Beethoven loving ultra-violent punk who leads his gang of minions on a series of criminal assaults mainly being attacks and rape. After being caught by the authorities our protagonist is sent to prison where he asks to participate in some sort of nasty experiment/therapy which will let him go out of prison earlier. After being part of this experiment Kubrick shows us Alex’s life which now is unbearable for he cannot commit his criminal acts and he cannot listen to Beethoven Ninth Symphony, his favorite music. All of this leads us to a suicide attempt from our protagonist, an attempt of which he survived. 
            The film, like most of Kubrick’s other works, is just a masterpiece filled with a great score, great acting, great acting and overall great mise en-scene. Masterpiece is one of many words that could be used to describe this film.

Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls (1995)

            The sequel to the 1994 hit lives up to the hype of its predecessor. In 1995’s Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls Jim Carrey reprises his role as the goofy pet detective who must now head to Africa where he hopes to stop a tribal war by finding a white bat that has sacred meaning to both sides.

            Steve Oedekerk’s directorial take on the Ace Ventura franchise delivers lots of laughs that might be even more memorable than those of its predecessor. Jim Carrey as always delivers a great crazy performance and so did the rest of the cast as subjects of Ventura’s wild ways to solve a mystery. When Nature Calls certainly delivers the same as Pet Detective: lots of laughs, funny story, hilarious overacting and so-so direction. The film is not a masterpiece but it certainly is hilarious and it entertains anybody in the mood for a laugh.

Adam Sandler’s Eight Crazy Nights (2002)
            This is probably a gem for Adam Sandler fans. Using little emotional depth and lots of gross disgusting potty humor Adam Sandler gives us the story of Davey Stone (voiced by Sandler) who after losing his parents as a kid becomes a boor in the small town of Dukesberry in New England. Throughout the film Davey causes nothing but chaos and eventually falls for his best friend as a child Jennifer (voiced by Jackie Titone).
            This 2002 animated adaptation of Adam Sandler’s type of humor is nothing Oscar worthy, it is just entertainment for fans of the famed actor-comedian. The story is an original take on the holiday theme but if it were to be put on another time it would be just another typical plotline. The voice acting in the movie is just like all the acting in all the other Sandler flicks. Basically the feature is just your typical Sandler movie, nothing new here except for a few songs. I will admit that the picture has its few laughs.

A History of Violence (2005)
            A History of Violence is a masterpiece. In this adaptation of the crime graphic novel Viggo Mortensen stars as Tom Stall a small town hard working family man who after using self-defense against a couple of thugs earns fame and then falls as the target of a group of major Philadelphia mobsters. In my view this flick has zero flaws; sure some might find it a bit too extreme in terms of gore, violent and sexual content. But these are elements that make the picture so great. The acting, story, photography, direction and basically every other aspect of the movie is perfect. I seriously do not see any flaws except for those that others might find, which I previously mentioned as being part of the feature’s excellence.

A Perfect Getaway (2009)
            This 2009 suspense psychological thriller by David Twohy, better known for having created the Riddick series, has got to be one of the most original thrillers in recent years. Starring Steve Zahn (amazingly as a villain), Timothy Olyphant, Milla Jovovich and Kiele Sanchez, the film tells us the story of how a couple of honeymooners go on a hiking trip on Hawaii where they stumble upon another couple and all throughout the film both couples live in fear thinking that there might be some loose serial killers on the island. At the end the film has one of the greatest plot twists any film has had in recent years. 
Overall the acting in the film is great but I would have to say that Steve Zahn’s had to be the best in the entire film, the whole time I saw this film I never actually knew it was him until I saw the credits, and to think this guy acted in movies such as National Security and Saving Silverman. The direction of the film is great as well as the script, which is a pretty good one if you ask me, and the editing which is quite awesome when the flashbacks appear and when the action sequences start, which are pretty good and original. 
A fun fact I would like to mention is that this film was shot in Hawaii and Puerto Rico, so it’s fun to know that this film had a few scenes filmed in my country.

Akira (1988)

            This film is simply and was way ahead of its time. In this 1988 anime flick we are presented to Tetsuo and Kaneda two childhood friends who have treated each other like brothers from the moment they met. Currently they live in Neo Tokyo a not so distant future where chaos reigns every single day. On a day where the two friends are facing off a rival biker gang Tetsuo has an accident and is taken to the army’s hospital where some experiments are conducted on him that give him psychic powers that he eventually decides to use against the world.

            Before watching this picture I had no idea of what to expect by it because I had not seen any anime film in its entirety. But when I finished watching the movie I must say I was impressed. Never would I have thought that a feature involving biker gangs would be so philosophical and so involved into politics. I mean sure the movie has all its great action sequences and science fiction. But by the end of the picture the audience knows that the film is not just about wicked explosions and silly gun fights. Akira is way deeper than any normal action film or science fiction flick. The movie is just perfection and highly recommended to anyone looking for something different than Hollywood. Now I can truly understand why this film is considered a landmark in cinema.

Alexander (2003)
            Oliver Stone’s direction in this film is just bad. 2003’s Alexander tells the story of the man who had most of the known world in his hand, Alexander the Great. The feature chronicles the character’s ups and downs in his imperial work as well as an inside to his personal life.
            Alexander is yet another Oliver Stone flick that fails to deliver, like most of his movies from the new millennium. Colin Farrell’s acting in the feature can be considered from average to bad. The directorial effort by Stone can be considered in that level as well. But what really ruined the picture for me was the flick’s photography, music, costumes and epic battles; I mean all of these previously mentioned elements were just not up to the scale of a normal epic film or any Stone movie for that matter. Overall the feature can be watched just once because trust me you do not want to spend another three hours watching a mediocre movie.

Aguirre, der Zorn Gottes (Aguirre, The Wrath of God) (1972)
            I had never before seen a film by German director Werner Herzog and I got to say I have been missing out on some of the greatest filmmaking ever done. The story sets us in 1500s Amazon River in the expedition led by Pedro de Ursua, whom is later betrayed by Lope de Aguirre, to find the mythical city of El Dorado. In the end Aguirre, the Wrath of God as he later come to calls himself, finds himself as a victim of his own tragic illusion. The film, like Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey is mostly a visual and musical experience where only like thirty five minutes of the movie have dialogue. Something really quite interesting about the film is that it was shot on the location of the actual expedition and when you see the acting in this movie you can see how hard it was for the actors to fight the difficulties set by this location. Knowing this fact it made me look at the film deeper just to see how hard it was for the actors and trust me just by watching the beginning of movie you can tell it was really, really though for them. As far as the costumes go they are all great, they actually do look like they were taken from a museum and used just for the film. The script is perfect as well as the directing. The only thing I actually had a complain about was for some of the audio editing where sometimes some of the music played by the Indian slave can hardly be heard. Overall the film is filled with great visuals, music, acting, directing, writing, sets and costumes.

Ali (2001)
            2001’s Ali is a great biopic. In this biographical sport drama features Will Smith starring as Cassius Clay, better known as Muhammad Ali, the legendary and controversial boxer who throughout history has been denoted has “The Best of All Time”. Ali tells the life of the boxing champ from his first triumphs, his work in activism and up until his big achievement against George Foreman.
            Ali has definitely got to be one of the best biographical dramas out there. The movie does not go up to the greatness of Martin Scorsese’s Raging Bull but I would put it up there in the same level as the Jamie Foxx starred Ray. The picture delivers some terrific story-telling, direction, photography and acting by Smith and Foxx. Overall Ali is a wonderful flick but not perfect.
