average rating MPAA rating watch rent buy
Aliens (1986)
  James Cameron at his best. Using minimal special effects and his genius for technical filmmaking he creates one of the more thrilling and memorable sci-fi movies of the last 20 years.
Akira (Special Edition) (1988)
  This is the gold standard against which all other anime, even all other animation are measured against. The artistry of this film is really something to behold especially considering that it was made 15 years ago.
American Beauty (1999)
  Beautifully shot, funny and poignant tale of a family in crisis who grow as a result. Kevin Spacey gives a superb performance as the father going through a mid-life crisis.
Army of Darkness (U.S. Theatrical Version) (1992)
  Saw this movie opening night and it is still the best cinema experience I have ever had. Just a fun, silly, kick ass movie. Bruce Campbell is the king of cult actors.
Clerks (1994)
  Kevin Smith's ode to corner store workers everywhere. From Dante's "I'm not supposed to be here today!" to Randal's cynical take on being a video store clerk, this film is pure dialog genius. Also starts off the historic careers of Jay and Silent Bob.
Die Hard (1988)
  Bruce Willis was born to be an action star. This film is the proof. One of the best action movies ever made. It has been imitated so many times now and yet is still on top.
Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981)
  Spielberg and Lucas' ode to the serials of another Hollywood era. Uses Harrison Ford to perfection as a treasure hunter who knows how to use his whip.
L.A. Confidential (1997)
  Excellent police movie set in 40s LA. Shows how even good cops get misused by the system. Many excellent performances in this all-star cast.
Monty Python and the Holy Grail (Collector's Edition) (1974)
  "You must bring me....A Shrubbery!"
O Brother, Where Art Thou? (2000)
  George Clooney was robbed of an Oscar nom for this movie. Well filmed, funny movie about 3 convicts trying to find treasure in the south during the 20s dustbowl era.
Pulp Fiction (1994)
  Quentin Tarentino's masterpiece look into a slice of time in the LA underworld. Marked the return of John Travolta and the arrival of Samuel L. Jackson. Best known for the speech that Samuel L. gives before he kills some college age thugs.
Schindler's List (1993)
  Oscar winning drama about a German industrialist and schemer who saves hundreds of Jews in Nazi Germany.
South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut (1999)
  Not only was this film a great sendup of the Hollywood musical but is also one of the most bitingly funny films of recent memory. The film is an even greater commentary on the disaster that is the MPAA rating system today than when it was first released.
Star Trek: First Contact (1996)
  Even androids can be seduced. The scenes between the Borg Queen and Data are some of the most oddly sexy you will see. First Contact delivers everything you could ever want in a Star Trek film.
Terminator 2: Judgment Day - The Ultimate Edition DVD (1991)
  Ushered in the modern era of computer generated special effects. Is also one of the best action films of our time.
