A review area for movies of all genres. Trailers only might avoid copyright issues?

Omar, excellent movie about life in Palestine. The twist at the end, genius.

Jesus loves you...Mexico is great, right? ;)

A recent short film fav with a nice little twist.


The idea that seeing the world is going from place to place to look at obvious things is an illusion natural to dull minds.

Not a bad movie, however I think it is a stretch to refer to it anything other than fiction.

If this movie depicts history then Buck Rogers is an accurate depiction of 1987.

Stalingrad the movie is a fictional love story set against the back drop of one of the fiercest battles ever fought.

I was disappointed that it didn't actually provide too much insight into one of greatest examples of human endurance - from the perspective of both the German (and their axis friends) and the Russkies.

Good twist and fills in some backstory.

I think it's kind of taken from Christopher Nolan's (Batman films, Inception) 1997 first feature short Doodlebug, a 16-millimeter, black-and-white shot on a $6000-budget.

This thread has reminded me of some other favorite shorts due for another watch.

Star Wars fans will enjoy this one. Some fans are really talented.
