10. Aliens (James Cameron)
09. The Thing ( John Carpenter)
08. Sunshine ( Danny Boyle , the third act through off many people but I enjoyed it)
07. HEAT ( Pacino and Deniro, Michael Mann was on top of his game!)
06. The Dark Knight ( I can't remember the last time I saw a movie 3 times in a theater)
05. Raider of the Lost Ark ( As a kid this one through me for a loop)
04. Requiem for a Dream ( Darren Aronofsky's masterpiece!)
03. Blade Runner ( directors cut with no narration)
02. Slumdog Millionaire ( I was blown away and saw an early screening of this, classic)
01. The Shining ( scared the crap out of me but I still went back to watch it)
** This list can also change within 24 hours ** I was also a big sci fi and scifi horror fan growing up.
With that being said I intend to be much more active in the upcoming weeks with reviews.
For those who look at the title please do not take it seriously as it sounded good at the time.:) I don't take my self seriously and I am not your run of the mill critic. I am like you in many ways:).

I really hope this movie gets nominated and wins at the Oscars, it already has a golden globe nod but then again they also nominated Tom Cruise for Best Actor for Tropic Thunder, can you really take them seriously?? I mean really??!!!
Marvel is now projecting to be the frontunner of SuperHero Flicks in the year 2009! With X-Men Origins coming out and IRON MAN 2 they now have THOR, Captain America, and the Avengers lined up. If the Dark Knight happens to get a Best Picture nod then you best believe that a slew of Comic Book Characters will follow suit.
Mickey's Performance along with Darren's direction makes this my top pick of the year! Tomei and Rachel Evan Wood were also incredible in this movie, only gripe was Rachel not getting enough screen time. It is currently at 100% on Rotten Tomatoes and it is an outstanding flick. I was fortunate enough to catch a screening in San Diego and Darren did a Q@A with the audience. In one scene he let Mickey go at it while serving Deli-Customers at a local market. The scene was priceless and also showed the softer side of Mickey Rourke. In the land of over the top budget action flicks and sub par acting do yourself a favor and see this film, you won't regret it!
