    Born on the Fourth of July

    ★★★★½

    Added To Oliver Stone Ranked
    Born on the Fourth of July is a hard movie to watch. It was an emotional rollercoaster watching this movie. Tom Cruise’s performance is amazing as Vietnam Vet Ron Kovic. The writing is great, epecially since Oliver Stone almost always writes his movies with the people who the movie is about. In this case it was cowritten by Ron Kovic. 

    This is by far the best Oliver Stone movie I have seen since I started…

    Here we go. Ive been plowing through these Oliver Stone movies and Ive liked most of them. And a few that were okay, but man Savages missed the mark. 

    Lets just start with the pros . Benicio Del Toro was great, and every scene with him was fun. Also Salma Hayek and John Travolta were pretty good in this movie too. When the movie is violent its gets entertaining. Finally I love the opening line…

    Suspiria

    ★★★★

    I understand that Dario Argento is the master of horror, but this is the second movie I have watched of his and I feel disconnected. 
    The cinematography, art design, production, soundtrack, and direction are pure perfection. Even the acting, script, and english dub arent very bad either. 

    For some reason I just can’t get into Argento like everyone seems to be. Theres nothing I can complain about the movie because its seemingly a masterpiece.

  • Rocketman

    Rocketman

    ★★★★½

    Rocketman was way better than I could have imagined. Turning an Elton John bio-pic into a full blown musical was the right choice. Everything about this movie was beautifully done. Other than a few moments where it falls into the bio-pic cliches area, it was near perfect. Truly a magical experience.
