StevenSpielburg's first [Not really. His first movie was "Firelight"] film is astoundingly good. Dennis Weaver is terrorized by an insane truckdriver in a beaten up tanker truck. The unseen truck driver is played by Cary Loftin [Nice name]. Anyone who is a fan of Spielburg should watch this.
One-track minded unseen psycho Tanker Truck driver!.

But just by looking at the ugly old grey tanker truck itself was scarier in your rear view mirror was enough to give a strong person like you a massive heart attack!. For me, this film clearly beats 'Jaws" in the scare-fest hands down by a long shot. Dennis Weaver should have won an Oscar for his absolute realistic role as the victorious victim. The evil unseen truck driver is the ultimate epitome of the worst road rage ever. Even the truck itself in this kind of mode is the scariest and creepiest metal road monster of them all.
Favorite Movie also i like 2 and 3 can wait till number 4 to be released soon... it is going to be the best ... everything is great about this movie.. actors and effects .. also the dinosaurs.. and the hype the T- Rex gets at the end of the film
Everyone has a point in their life where there is a choice that is made that will forever shape them. My choice was when I was 7 and my father took me to the movies to see Snow White in the theater and as we walked in the parking lot he asked me if I would rather see the other movie that was playing called "Raiders of the Lost Ark." That moment is one of my fondest memories because that cemented in me a love of adventure. The books I read, the places I go, my interests; they are all trying to make me feel like I did on that day when I was 7. God know what I would be like if I had picked Snow White...
Okay, Mr. Lucas, intellectually, I understand what you claim you were trying to do here. If the first three Indy movies were an homage to 1930s adventure serials, then 'Crystal Skull' is an homage to 1950s sci-fi B-movies. Okay, but the problem is, you're still making an Indy sequel, and the two genres don't blend well. Add to that the over-use of CGI (digital ants are just not creepy like REAL snakes, giant bugs or rats), and this kinda fun movie just falters.
We needed this flick 15 years ago, before the idea of what an Indy film should be got so diluted.
Brief periods of decent action and tries to be compelling & fun as the former films -- but the overdone, over-the-top action sequences just ruin these movies for me now! Can't you make action/chase scenes with some of the gritty and quasi-realistic flavor of the first Indy, and not be so "Matrix" ridiculous?
I'm kind of shocked that E.T. has only two paws for a community rating. I guess some of the film snobs out there tend to #!@%*# on this movie and that's fine. I have a soul, however. Just watched it again for the first time in years and it held up incredibly. I cried, I'm not going to lie. The relationship between E.T. and Elliott is wonderful, Drew Barrymore is cute and hilarious, and just the look of the film is magical. I'm not the biggest Spielberg fan in the world and even I can love this one.

OK, not all of the scenes work, but you have to give it to Spielberg. He really, really wants this movie to be funny. Like REALLY. The movie is literally dripping with ambition, so you have to give it credit for that.
Hey, Dr. Jones, what happened to your adopted son, Shorty? What did you leave him back on the streets of Shanghai with Willie Scott and a promise to return after you went out and grabbed a pack of cigarettes? Not cool, man. Not cool.
It's been over a year since first seeing Saving Private Ryan -- it's a worthy effort by Speilberg--his best since Shindler's List by far. You've probably heard about the amount of violence, blood, and gore and that's all true--it's got the Viet Nam movie style violence (and then some) but it's not gratuitous. Were it sanitized like early WWII movies, modern audiences probably wouldn't take it as seriously.
This is the best representation yet of the horrors witnessed by the kids sent to Europe to fight in the war. I found myself breathless at times. While their are references to factual events scattered throughout the movie, the fact that it is ultimately a work of fiction bothered me initially. Regardless, the battles portrayed in the film could have been ANY battle fought in the hedgerows and villages of Normandy during the summer of 1944.
Can't wait to see
Myers pulls off tacky humor (as usual) with 24-karat style in Goldmember, as Austin Powers finds himself fighting crime in the 1970s. Dr. Evil's rap sequence is a highlight of this film, as are the bubbly Beyonce Knowles, and the Dutch villain with a taste for his own crispy gold skin.
