BLADE RUNNER. Pessimistic phooey.

The only good Jason Bourne movie is the one without Jason Bourne in it.

I don't entirely agree, but you're certainly not far off in your assessment of these generally quite overrated movies...nice to know it's not just me!

Sorry, Ray; you are most definitely NOT alone in your view of Blade Runner. Meeurgh.

Aside from its music, Star Wars (all films in the "franchise") should be of interest only to children.

I've never met anyone else that likes the Merchant Ivory movie Le Divorce, or the Charlize Theron action movie Aeon Flux.

That's a strange statement.

Now you're just reinforcing his "absolutely alone"-ness.

I do not care for Star Wars or Star Trek. Or most science fiction.

I would rather watch animation over live action.

I enjoyed the third Godfather film.

First Contact is a terrible Star Trek film, and utter garbage TNG film. TFF and TVH are masterpieces compared to this. Though it's better than Nemesis.

Speaking of "Star Trek V: The Final Frontier": this is not a bad film. It has some iffy special effects in places and that nightmarish naked Uhura dancing, but it has a lot of good things going for it. And I think I'm the only person who undetstood the film, or at least I found deeper meaning to the Sybok plot of the film than was actually planned.

And since I'm on a Trek role: "Generations is the best TNG film. Superior in about every aspect I can come up with (except scoring; I think this and the next two TNG films, all have great scores and therefore I won't hold one up above the others).

And bodly going forward with more Trek (even though it's TV and not film):
The "Star Trek: the Next Generation" episode "Code of Honor", is the most Godwaful TV Trek episode ever. Yes -- WORSE than "Spock's Brain".


"The Matrix" was good andh and had so much promise. The sequels were utter crap.

The first was rife with espionage/amnesia clichés, and the second and third ones were RUINED by Paul Greengrass' hideous camerawork. At last the fourth one actually looked like a FILM instead of your jittery home movies from 1987. I can't understand why they were so successful.

To me it felt they got right what the bond movies were doing wrong during that era.

Couldn't agree more. the first one was fun and a good little spy thriller. 2 and 3 look like they were filmed by an epileptic. Some of the worst camera work I have ever seen. Took away any and all enjoyment from the films.

Love Matrix Revolutions. Overshadowed by the furore concerning the curiously naff "...Reloaded", it's just fine.

I think "John Carter" is one of the best movies made in the past couple of decades!!!

Being better than Die Another Day is hardly much of a feat. And Casino Royale and Skyfall are the movies the Bourne series wish they were.
