    The movie is filled with great music, original choreography, and memorable songs. Along with a story that's a great update of Romeo & Juliet, it's really no surprise that the film is considered to be one of the best musicals ever made.

    It's amusing and enjoyable at the same time, in a wholesome Pleasantville kind of way.

    The Time Machine is an old-fashioned adventure that tries to remain as true to the original text as it could (the ending of the book isn't the same here, along with various other additions and changes) with an excellent score, great special effects, and a story that keeps you watching thanks to the excellent narration throughout the film.

    Welles manages to wring engaging performances out of all of his actors, but what's most impressive about the film is the way in which the director makes use of every corner of the screen with deliberate precision.

    Invasion of the Body Snatchers is an excellent movie about paranoia, conformity, and the need to "stay awake," or else become jaded, emotionally dead.
    • 78 Metascore

    It's that rare movie that I will not only continue to enjoy as a moviegoer and all-around romantic, but recommend as a legitimate standard-bearer for the animated classics yet to come.

    This is an amazing film, both for what it did in 1953 and what it still does today. It's a far better interpretation of H.G. Wells' novel than Spielberg's abrupt and lopsided film.

    Stalag 17 is a black comedy before the term black comedy was coined.

    Though it may not add up to more than the sum of its parts, animation fans have come to appreciate Alice in Wonderland over the years for the care and effort put into it, despite its flaws.

    It's a very good adaptation of the original novel that maintains the core themes and characters while at the same time making it distinctly "Disney". I
  1. The glass slipper, the Fairy Godmother, Jaq and Gus - Cinderella is a parade of majestic moments.

    Double Indemnity is a masterpiece of Hollywood storytelling.

    Where its successors might interpret or imitate its achievement of making a movie set in a confined space, Hitchcock evokes more important questions - many of them without answers - from his cross-section of characters, and creates an impressive and remarkably prescient perspective on our relationship with the world around us.

    A time-honored classic filled with love, happiness and excitement.

    Envisioned as a musical symphony come to life, Fantasia is a bizarre, almost trippy experience rich with hypnotic visuals, dazzling animation and beautiful music.

    Strip away the rich scenery, catchy tunes and now familiar, beloved characters and Pinocchio amounts to little more than a series of awkwardly strung-together morality tales. It's likely that young viewers just discovering this film for the first time won't notice or care, but as adults considering where the film stands among the great animated classics, it's fair to say this still a masterpiece, albeit an imperfect one.

    Where Citizen Kane changed the way live action films were looked at and made forever, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs did the exact same thing for animation. It remains one of the finest examples of the art form, and anyone who considers themselves a film snob or animation fan must have this on their shelf.
  2. Curse of Chucky sees the return of the Good Guys doll you love to hate, but sadly he's back with a whimper, not a bang.
  3. Seven films & almost 30 years later, the franchise is still going strong with this worthy new addition, Cult of Chucky.
