Great Movies

Just wanted to post a couple movies EVERYONE should see if they haven't already.


This movie showcases Denzel Washington at his finest, the acting is superb and the action is nail biting. It's the tale of a young officer's first day on the job (his "training day") and the events that ensue as he learns from his mentor (Denzel). The plot twists in a way that throws you completely off guard. It's truly an amazing movie.


If there's one Edward Norton movie anyone should see, it's this one. The plot is absolutely captivating and upon seeing this for the first time I shed a tear at the end. It tells the tale of a neo-Nazi and his undertaking of his racist ideals that ultimately put him in prison, we see the reformation he undergoes and the effects it has on the world around him. The character development in the movie is second to none and you can't help but become attached to all of the characters in the movie by the end.


I included this movie as a warning to never see it, I'm pretty sure the script was written by a 5 year old. It's that bad.

  1. All great movies that have been in my collection for years. I still watch AHX from time to time. I think he did a better job in that movie than in fight Club, to be honest

  6. I've seen the Mummy and I have to disagree! This movie isn't written by a 5 year old by far! It would be so much better than this movie if it was.

  9. I watched all these movies. They are great. I especially loved training day. Denzel did a really awesome job playing the bad guy.

  10. Never seen Training Day, but Odin, I hate Denzel Washington. Eddy Norton is one of my favorite actors and I was very disappointed with the new Mummy movie, considering how much I liked the others.

  12. Man, you gotta do at least a top ten, do others justice! I agree all are great movies but I think of a ton others when training day and american history x come to mind--scarface, goodfellas, there will be blood (feel like its a mandatory guy movie type of list)

  15. I agree with you on all of them except the Tomb of the Dragon Emperor Mummy. The original Mummy was the best of the series.
