    Yeah, I'll concede the point that the second and third Matrix movies weren't as good as the first. The first was incredible, the other two were good. Yeah I don't know why I haven't seen Pulp Fiction, it sounds like a movie I'd watch. My favorite kind of movies: Horror/Thriller, Action, Comedy (in that order). Just two nights ago I saw The Descent and it was horrible :\. Horror my ass it was stupid and they explained nothing in the movie, things happened for no reason, etc. Oh and Mario, the relationship between Neo and Trinity was kinda... stupid, for lack of a better way to say it. Ahh well that little element didn't affect the movie as a whole for me.
    Trinity: "Neo... nobody has ever done this before."
    Neo: "That's why it's going to work."

    I'm pretty sure that's one of Cruise's best movies to date - it's so well done.

    I can't watch the last 20 minutes without welling up / lumpy throat.

    Damn guns.

    As much as he freaks me out on TV, he's probably one of the most consistent actors of his generation.

    Oh, I liked lord of war too.

    >> ... consistent actors of his generation.
    Consistent doesn't mean good! I can give you lots of examples of bad acting that's consistent!

    I'm not normally a big Tom Cruise fan, but he pulled that one off very well. It's rare that I actually cry while watching a movie, and despite seeing it at least a dozen times so far, I still get teary at various parts.

    I don't think i've ever cried from watching a movie ... and if I did, at the age of 13 or so I began to deny every instance (which didn't occur), of it happening!!

    Nice movie too!
    From when Shymalan(sp?) could still surprise us. Now, when a movie from him comes we already know that the end is always the least expected... So it becomes somewhat easy to predict

    EDIT: And the young actor just reminded me of another great movie; A.I.

    EDIT *2: And the director reminds me of two movies I should add to my favorite movies of all time list... Schindler's List and Color Purple.

    Y'know, when I watched it in the theatre I thought it was pretty boring, mainly because it was a little stretched out and had too much explinations. But a few weeks ago I re-watched it and was surprised how well it aged. It could have been released last week with the same effect. It goes without saying that I liked it much more, though the ending did have too much closure. I ususally prefer when movies leave much up to the imagination as possible without letting loose too many loopholes or deus ex machina. It was still a good movie.

    Minority report not so much, but still good.

    I also came to grips with the fact that despite it's '90s esque hair-band wildness that is a Michael Bay film, I still love the guy's movies. The Island and Bad Boys in particular (minus part two). If hell were ever to need scinematic direction, then it would be from Michael Bay. Destruction opera at it's finest.
