    "The truth is you're the weak. And I'm the tyranny of evil men. But I'm trying, Ringo. I'm trying real hard to be the shepherd."

    Thoughts: The acting, plot. and directing is amazing but this review isn't for that. It's for the dialogue. I could've used any line for my quote thats how perfect this film is. The diner scene even focuses on this. Even the "uncomfortable silences" of this film…

    "We'd have more luck playing pickup sticks with our butt-cheeks than we will getting a flight out of here"

    Thoughts: This film is a 2 punch knock out. The first punch knocks the shit out of you with its humor and the next kills you like Apollo Creed with it's sadness. The thing about this film is that i've seen it a hundred times and it still makes me…

  • Taxi Driver

    Taxi Driver

    ★★★★★

    Taxi Driver:
    5 out of 5
    A+

    "I think someone should just take this city and just...just flush it down the fuckin toilet"

    Thoughts: wow. No movie has ever made me feel the way Taxi Driver has. I could spend hours and just talking about the title. A film so complex with as simple a name as Taxi Driver. I sat in awe for a straight two hours and then a long time after the theater lights had turned on.…

  • Magnolia

    ★★★★★

    Magnolia:
    Score: 4.5 out of 5
    Grade: A

    "Why are frogs falling from the sky?"

    Thoughts: Just like Phillip Seymour Hoffman's character I too was questioning logic and well everything when the amphibian hail storm began. Throughout this film I thought the message was about coincidence. It turns out frogs falling from the sky isn't coincidental. The message or the morale turns out be that, in short, shit happens (sorry Office Jim for the language). I have a soul of…

    Grade: A

    "You know what, this is bullshit. I'm sorry... I don't do this, okay? I do this for a living. It's not a, not a fucking parlor game."

    Thoughts: I don't know where to start with this films review. This is really one of the only films which has made me incapable of a review. The story is amazing but its the story behind the story and the cycle of events…

    Score: 4 Out Of 5
    Grade: A
    Nicholas Angel: Well, there was the bit that you missed where I distracted him with the cuddly monkey then I said "play time's over" and I hit him in the head with the peace lily.
    Danny Butterman: You're off the fuckin' chain!
    Thoughts: Hot Fuzz Is The Ultimate Buddy Cop Film and You Know It's Amazing When A Swan Is The Hero Of The Film

    Score: 5/5
    Grade: A+
    "You ever listen to K-Billy's 'Super Sounds of the Seventies' weekend? It's my personal favorite."
    My first thought after watching this is how have I never seen this. This movie is so underrated it's ridiculous. Its tough to rank all Of Quentin Tarantino's movies but this one easily makes the top 3. Almost every actor in this film played his role to perfection. From Harvey Keitel, Michael Madsen and Tim Roth this movie is just great.…
