Le fabuleux destin d'Amélie Poulain (2001) 10
Musical and perfect for dreamers. Worth to be seem once every few months.
Before Sunrise (1995) 9
Beautiful! I like one of the scenes the most in which they are both listening to music. I have watched this part tens of times.
Before Sunset (2004) 9
Please remember to see Before Sunrise before this movie (they are not independent). A movie that is difficult to distinguish with a piece of poem.
Dancer in the Dark (2000) 9
I was affected by this movie for some days after watching it. So bitter and really touching. I am probably not going to watch it again ever, as it was too strong.
Dirty Pretty Things (2002) 9
Bitter, touching and gloomy. I really liked it.
En sång för Martin (2001) 9
Nice and touching; a combination of music and love.
Fa yeung nin wa (2000) 9
A movie that I was always in a dilemma about whether I like it or not. I can say that at the end I really liked it. Before watching the movie, be prepared that the pace is relatively slow; so do not expect an action movie with a fast pace! Enjoy the screening, the music and the beauties shown in this movie (like beauty of abstinence)
Knafayim Shvurot (2002) 9
Bitter, touching and still full of hope. I was really impressed by this movie. For me, it reminded again that life is full of these moments with huge sadness and moments with tiny happiness's!
L'ultimo bacio (2001) 9
Based on the concept of family and loyalty. I really enjoyed it. It also has an American version, but I preferred to watch this one, the more original version! (it is recommended for people in love!)
La stanza del figlio (2001) 9
I recommend this movie to people who has faced loss of a close person. For me it was an exact illustration of myself.
La vita è bella (1997) 9
A combination of life, love, laughter and sorrow! I absolutely loved it.
Le huitième jour (1996) 9
It was touching. I recommend it especially when you are stuck in a pile of work and life seems to be tough and bitter!
Les choristes (2004) 9
Touching and peaceful.
Les poupées russes (2005) 9
One of the best movies I have watched recently: I recommend watching "Spanish Apartment" before watching this, as they are not independent. About relationships and looking for a perfect match.
Little Manhattan (2005) 9
Although it was an American movie, I loved it! Very nice and touching, talking about love, especially in children. It also, somehow, claims that nothing is like the first love (I think sentence has had more commercial usages than reality!)
No Man's Land (2001) 9
Shows how stupid are human beings and how stupid are wars, relatively. I absolutely enjoyed this touching masterpiece.
Nun va Goldoon (1996) 9
Beautiful with amazing music (mixed with "Azaan" in some parts)
Paris, je t'aime (2006) 9
A group of short movies, all about love, from various perspectives. This is one of the movies I should occasionally watch and watch again and again.
Promises (2001) 9
Absolutely recommended if you are interested in peace, especially in middle east!
Sweet Land (2005) 9
Peaceful and soft, with a touch of love and humanity. I believe that this is a "must see"!
The Sound of Music (1965) 9
Needless to say, this is a beautiful movie. It affected me a lot when I was a child.
Tian xia wu shuang (2002) 9
Bear in mind that this is a comedy. With that in mind, more humors can be revealed and you have more potentials to enjoy it! I found this movie really funny and also very significant. The dialogues were touching and I did not want to miss one of them (I wish I knew Mandarin!). The performances and the music were two factors that made the movie even more beautiful. If you are looking for a touching and engaging movie, I think this is a good choice.
Wo de fu qin mu qin (1999) 9
It was lovely! You can see a touching love relationship while the movie is rated as G (general audience)! I enjoy works by Zhang Yimou, and this one was not an exception.
Xiao cai feng (2002) 9
Absolutely genuine, with a touch of love, a touch of humanity and a touch of life. I found nothing extreme in this movie. The pains had limits, the happinesses had limits and the expressions of love had limits also. It's important to see this movie in the context of Chinese culture, i.e. do not expect to see a normal westernized movie. I would suggest you to look for signs of life that are current in all parts of the story. It was a long time I had not seen such a genuine work of art.
Zhou Yu de huo che (2002) 9
To me it was more like a piece of poem. I would suggest you not to look for any solution in this movie and enjoy the poetic description. I have to confess that Gong Li did her job perfectly.
Zivot je cudo (2004) 9
It's not easy to talk about war and all it's pains while keeping an eye on life. This was one of the best movies I have ever seen: you can see everything together, in a happy and live and musical setting. The cast were perfect. I believe that in Emir Kusturica's movies, even the donkeys and dogs know how to perform (like this movie).
"Friends" (1994) 8
I watched it all the way, without missing an episode! They had worked a lot on it.
À la folie... pas du tout (2002) 8
An exciting movie which you probably don't get bored during watching. I would suggest reading about Erotomania before watching it.
Äideistä parhain (2005) 8
Nice, especially when you are interested in adoption (as I am and enjoyed the movie!).
11'09''01 - September 11 (2002) 8
For me, it was interesting.
2 Days in Paris (2007) 8
Really funny! Based on this movie and Before Sunrise/Sunset, I can say that I believe in works by July Delpy.
4 luni, 3 saptamâni si 2 zile (2007) 8
Very bitter and sad, but you will never forget it. I believe that every adult should see this movie at least once.
A Night to Remember (1958) 8
Exciting and prepared nice (it's important to consider the year it has been made)
Annie Hall (1977) 8
A famous movie that is better to be seen at least once (in general, I like works of Woody Allen).
Antonia (1995) 8
Impressed me a lot and I kept thinking about it after I finished it. A very good piece of art about concepts of life and death, yet presented in a normal and tangible comedy atmosphere.
Bacheha-Ye aseman (1997) 8
Nice but sad. In general, I don't like Majid Majidi's too pessimistic view in many of his movies (like this one).
Badkonake sefid (1995) 8
Nice, but still depicted in a too gloomy atmosphere.
Bashu, gharibeye koochak (1989) 8
Very touching and beautiful. In this movie human relations are shown at its best. Also recommended for families interested in adoption!
Bikur Ha-Tizmoret (2007) 8
It was like a moment was perfectly illustrated by the artist.
Bolt (2008) 8
I liked it: It was really funny, it was exciting, it was not bothering and the most important one that the story had significant messages.
Booy-E Pirahan-E Yusef (1995) 8
Nice and touching. I also liked the music a lot.
Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan (2006) 8
This is a mockumentary and I suggest you to take it easy while watching it. It's also a good idea to read about this movie (and mockumentary in general) before watching.
Born Into Brothels: Calcutta's Red Light Kids (2004) 8
A sad documentary presented beautifully.
Bowling for Columbine (2002) 8
Impressing and prepared beautifully, although I'm not sure how much Michael Moore's is impartial.
Café Transit (2005) 8
Nice and touching with impressing performances. I also like it when food plays an important role in a movie!
China Cry: A True Story (1990) 8
Touching and impressing. I really liked it.
Chung Hing sam lam (1994) 8
During the movie, I kept wondering whether I like this movie or not. After watching the movie, I was involved with it for days. I needed more time to understand it. Also, I would suggest you to talk to someone or read some reviews about this movie if you watch it. That will help understand the movie better. I can say that I really love the movies by Wong Kar Wai.
Dare mo shiranai (2004) 8
Very touching and really nice. It will be more touching if you know that it all these have happened and are shown with minor modifications.
Das Leben der Anderen (2006) 8
Straightforward and attracting. I like this kind of movies, which are about humanity.
Depuis qu'Otar est parti... (2003) 8
Touching and well made.
Der Tunnel (2001) 8
I was seriously involved with the story. I believe that this movie is capable of successfully bringing excitement and emotions simultaneously.
Earth (2007) 8
I truly admire this much effort they had put to make such a fantastic collection. If you are fond of nature, do not hesitate to watch this collection.
Elling (2001) 8
Straightforward and attracting. Don't watch it if you like movies that are stereotypes of American movies!
Ensemble, c'est tout (2007) 8
I saw this on my plane to Iran. A very nice and peaceful movie.
Ertefae Past (2002) 8
I found it touching with reasonable messages. It was also engaging for me and kept me following the story curiously.
Eyes Wide Shut (1999) 8
Fasl-e panjom (1997) 8
Touching and romantic!
Finding Neverland (2004) 8
Gabbeh (1996) 8
Nice movie with beautiful music (Sima Bina is the singer?). Before watching, reading briefly about "Gabbeh" is strongly recommended.
Ghost (1990) 8
Touching with a beautiful music.
Good Bye Lenin! (2003) 8
Beautiful and recommended if you have been in contact with or you are interested in right/left world issues.
Ha-Kochavim Shel Shlomi (2003) 8
Harrison's Flowers (2000) 8
Showing the ugly sides of war in a beautiful way. Quite impressing (I had the chance to watched it in Farhang cinema in Tehran, the new saloon with high quality sound system and I was really impressed).
Huozhe (1994) 8
This movie stayed in my mind for a very long time. It's good to know about China's contemporary history and it's cultural revolution before watching this movie. The performances are astounding and the music is also amazing!
Il y a longtemps que je t'aime (2008) 8
I found it touching and engaging. The story is straightforward and appealing to the viewer.
Italianetz (2005) 8
Nice and touching, recommended for people interested in adoption!
Jean de Florette (1986) 8
Joyeux Noël (2005) 8
The subject was so touching and beautiful. The movie was also good, although the pace was too slow sometimes and could have been done in less than two hours.
Khane-ye doust kodjast? (1987) 8
Kinamand (2005) 8
Touching with a soft demonstration of love.
Krótki film o zabijaniu (1988) 8
This movie talked about killing in an astonishing way (note: it is violent).
Kramer vs. Kramer (1979) 8
Kung Fu Panda (2008) 8
Funny and attracting with beautiful animation.
L'auberge espagnole (2002) 8
Cheerful and happy, yet as a prerequisite to watch Russian Dolls.
Le battement d'ailes du papillon (2000) 8
I think it was a happy movie with fast pace. Try not to loose the track!
Le peuple migrateur (2001) 8
A documentary which seems that has needed an intensive amount of work to be made.
Le scaphandre et le papillon (2007) 8
Nice, touching and amusing. By the way, remember that this has been a true story.
Leila (1996) 8
Touching with perfect performances by very good Iranian actors and actresses.
Mahiha ashegh mishavand (2005) 8
Manhattan (1979) 8
Match Point (2005) 8
Meduzot (2007) 8
I can't say I understood this movie well, but I'm sure I liked it. I think that this is a must-see.
Michou d'Auber (2007) 8
A touching movie about adoption (my favorite concept!). Very peaceful.
Mrs. Doubtfire (1993) 8
My Blueberry Nights (2007) 8
Norah Jones (the actress) describes Wong Kar Wai's movies (or this movie, I'm not sure) as "eye candy". I believe that this is a very good description of this movie and more movies of the director. This is a smooth and nice movie and you can enjoy every moment during the show. For me it was one of the movies that remained in my mind.
My Fair Lady (1964) 8
Peaceful and nice, good to see that how much touching and nice these old movies are!
Once (2006) 8
Papillon (1973) 8
Pari (1995) 8
A touching story which I watched several times. I would suggest reading Franny and Zui (by Salinger) AFTER watching this movie (if you read it before watching, maybe the movie is not satisfying anymore).
Piao liang ma ma (2000) 8
It has both sadness and hope. Beautifully shows how the woman struggles for her son and Gong Li performs her role it its best. I really enjoyed this movie.
Pride & Prejudice (2005) 8
Beautiful scenes, beautiful music, beautiful dances and a peaceful story.
Qiu Ju da guan si (1992) 8
I really laughed while watching this movie! (I hadn't find a Chinese movie this much funny) Gong Li's performance also appeared astonishing.
Rain Man (1988) 8
Ratatouille (2007) 8
Roozi ke zan shodam (2000) 8
Nice movie! Recommended especially when you have some feminism beliefs!
Rosetta (1999) 8
Safety Last! (1923) 8
Harold Lloyd was perfect in this masterpiece.
Santoori (2007) 8
I really liked this movie and it remained in my mind for a long time. Beautiful musics and very good performances were two impressing factors about this movie.
Se, jie (2007) 8
It was a very long movie, nevertheless, I was curiously following it. The setting was perfect and involves who watches this movie. I could not get it out of my mind for days.
Seven Years in Tibet (1997) 8
Sukkar banat (2007) 8
Nice and touching.
Ta'm e guilass (1997) 8
I didn't like this movie at first sight, but it is one of those movies which are remembered many times later. Watch this movie as you are touching a movie about "life".
Take the Money and Run (1969) 8
I liked it and laughed a lot when watching it. But this is not necessarily the case for everybody, as it seems that Woody Allen is appreciated by some specific tastes!
Ten (2002) 8
The Birds (1963) 8
Must see! (if you consider the time this movie was made, it will be even more amazing)
The Butterfly Effect (2004) 8
I watched this because I am interested in the actual butterfly effect concept (+ chaos and the other related areas). I think it was an attractive movie.
The Front (1976) 8
The Green Mile (1999) 8
Touching and nice (although it's an American movie!). I remembered the book "Of Mice and Men" as it resembled that story a lot.
The Last Temptation of Christ (1988) 8
I had read the relevant novel and I liked it very much. Although for me it was not as enjoying as the novel, I still enjoyed it a lot.
The Pianist (2002) 8
The Shining (1980) 8
The Simple Life of Noah Dearborn (1999) (TV) 8
An easy going movie which I really enjoyed watching it. If you are tired of busy life, this is a good choice to watch to have peace of mind for a while.
The Syrian Bride (2004) 8
Very nice and touching. I also suggest that if you want to watch it, read briefly about Golan Heights before watching the movie.
The Visitor (2007/I) 8
I really enjoyed it. It was somehow like the movie "The Eighth Day". Showing the character of the university professor who wants to pretend that he is busy, was a kind of relief for me (considering my present situation as a student and a tough advisor!).
Trois couleurs: Bleu (1993) 8
Trois couleurs: Rouge (1994) 8
Trzy kolory: Bialy (1994) 8
Un air de famille (1996) 8
Cheerful and happy, yet so significant and touching. I also loved two of the other movies by the same director.
Un long dimanche de fiançailles (2004) 8
Un secret (2007) 8
Easy going and yet very profound. One of the rare movies that during the show I wished that it does not finish.
Underground (1995) 8
Une femme de ménage (2002) 8
Va, vis et deviens (2005) 8
One of the best movies I had seen recently: touching and impressing. The pace was slow some times and many more parts and dialogues could have been summarized. By the way, it is recommended to adoptees, adoptive and prospective adoptive parents.
Volver (2006/I) 8
Before watching this movie, keep in mind that it has a comedy theme. I really liked it. It has a genuineness that European movies have! The cast were awesome, by the way!
Yi ge dou bu neng shao (1999) 8
Zir-e poost-e shahr (2001) 8
Amusing and believable. The performances were also very good.
Zire darakhatan zeyton (1994) 8
It was touching and peaceful.
2046 (2004) 7
Somehow confusing for me, although the commentaries in the special features helped me find out more about it. Prior to watching, please be advised that there are many characters involved (I was lost between characters). Any way, for me, it was not as clear as I expected; like "In the mood for love".
A Walk in the Clouds (1995) 7
Absurdistan (2008) 7
If you want to watch an easy and straightforward movie, this is a good choice. I watched it when I was in Santa Fe, overwhelmed with high volume of input. It really helped me relax.
Ajans-E Shisheh-I (1997) 7
Atonement (2007) 7
Auf der anderen Seite (2007) 7
I can't say I liked it at the first sight, but I also couldn't stop thinking about it. In one sentence, it's similar to Cannes festival movies. The musics were beautiful, the pace was fast and the story was straightforward.
Az Karkheh ta Rhein (1993) 7
Ba wang bie ji (1993) 7
For me it was a bit boring because it took a bit long. But it was significant and thought provoking. As usual, Gong Li is perfect in her role.
Bad ma ra khahad bord (1999) 7
Bananas (1971) 7
Baran (2001) 7
I think it was too much exaggerated.
Be name pedar (2006) 7
It was good and somehow (but not much) impressing.
Beed-e majnoon (2005) 7
I believe that the subject and the way it was presented was too ordinary.
Bicycleran (1987) 7
Bom yeoreum gaeul gyeoul geurigo bom (2003) 7
Boutique (2003) 7
Brat (1997) 7
Suggested by a Russian friend, this movie shows a part of Russia after collapse of Soviet Union. I was shocked to know that it has been like this! Although I am not interested in action/violent movies, I was completely attracted to this movie.
Changeling (2008) 7
In it's genre, it was good.
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (2005) 7
Chicago (2002) 7
Chocolat (2000) 7
Da hong deng long gao gao gua (1991) 7
One of the most famous movies of Zhang Yimou. It was deep and touching, but needs a lot of patience also. As always, Gong Li is astounding!
Derakhte Golabi (1998) 7
Dialogue avec mon jardinier (2007) 7
Dieu est grand, je suis toute petite (2001) 7
Dillo con parole mie (2003) 7
Just a movie in a cheerful atmosphere, but not necessarily significant.
Duska (2007) 7
The movie was too slow at some parts and the topic was too old (there are many other movies with similar topics).
Ejareh-Nesheenha (1986) 7
Funny and worth seeing a couple of times.
El Cid (1961) 7
Something that should be seen, not necessarily because of joy, but because of the movie.
Fahrenheit 9/11 (2004) 7
Fast, Cheap & Out of Control (1997) 7
Interesting, but not attracting!
Forrest Gump (1994) 7
Frida (2002) 7
I would suggest reading about Frida a little bit before watching this movie. This way, you will have better chance of enjoying the movie.
Gaav (1969) 7
Very famous in Iranian cinema although I never appreciated it as it normally was.
Garden State (2004) 7
Hamoun (1990) 7
Not a peaceful movie, of course. Also, it was not straightforward and not necessarily easy to understand.
Honarpisheh (1993) 7
Hong yan (2005) 7
It was good, although not much interesting.
Hors de prix (2006) 7
It was amusing, but I believe that it was also very ordinary. In general, I didn't like it.
J'veux pas que tu t'en ailles (2007) 7
Ju Dou (1990) 7
Juno (2007) 7
Kirschblüten - Hanami (2008) 7
For me the trailer was better than the movie itself. The music was good and the scenes were attractive, yet the movie suffered from lack of something! I do not know what was wrong with this movie, but I found it immature and I believe that it needed to be processed more to become acceptable. In some parts the story was too simplified and cliché such that it lost impact.
Krótki film o milosci (1988) 7
L'enfant (2005) 7
La promesse (1996) 7
For me it was like the other movies by Dardenne brothers: bitter, sad and hopeless! Any way, it's good to see it once, but it was not the type of movie that I love (as I believe that life is not an all bitter continuum!)
Lakposhtha parvaz mikonand (2004) 7
Bitter and gloomy, although in some parts funny.
Les chansons d'amour (2007) 7
Very good music and appealing, but I still didn't like it. In general, when the movie has gay-lesbian relationships, it's off the shlef for me. The performances were good and it had the genuine atmosphere that European movies have.
Little Miss Sunshine (2006) 7
Happy, Easy and Nice.
Lola rennt (1998) 7
Lost in Translation (2003) 7
Not much interesting for me.
Love Actually (2003) 7
It is supposed to be Comedy, but I think it was not sufficiently comedy! It didn't develop a comedy atmosphere properly and hence some parts of the story were not believable (some parts seemed cheesy!). It was too long and could have been better if presented in a shorter time. But any way, tries to talk about love from different points of view.
Love Comes Softly (2003) (TV) 7
It was peaceful but a bit cheesy. It could have been more believable.
Lumière et compagnie (1995) 7
Good for people who love cinema (loving movies does not necessarily mean loving cinema!).
Mamma Mia! (2008) 7
I think whoever watches this movies shouldn't expect something especial happen. By the way, maybe familiarity with ABBA music can be helpful for enjoying this movie.
Man cheng jin dai huang jin jia (2006) 7
It was good. That's it!
Manon des sources (1986) 7
Marmoulak (2004) 7
The story seemed to be an imitation of another movie (I could never find that movie, but I have seen it). Any way, it was good. To be understood well, it is better that the person who watches, be generally familiar with Iran's politics.
Mehman-e maman (2004) 7
It was funny but yet making me anxious in some parts (maybe because it shown some terrible habbits of Iranians).
Meng ying tong nian (2004) 7
Mosaferan (1992) 7
Very nice and touching.
Nafas-e amigh (2003) 7
I can say I liked it. It was not the kind of movie I enjoy during watching, but at the end, when I looked at it as a whole, it seemed to be a good one.
Naissance des pieuvres (2007) 7
I don't like movies about Gay and Lesbian. That's it!
Nuovo cinema Paradiso (1988) 7
O Brother, Where Art Thou? (2000) 7
Offside (2006/I) 7
It was interesting and true, but not very amuzing for me.
Or (2004) 7
It was not a nice movie, but deep and touching. It's bitter and might be annoying; so, I would suggest watching it if you have proper mood (I didn't watch it in a proper time!).
Persepolis (2007) 7
It was somehow too personal to be interesting for others. On the other hand, for people who have experienced Iran after revolution and Iran-Iraq war, this is a good source for remembering the good and bad (mostly bad!) memories. I had read the comic books before watching the movie and I liked both of them. I believe that the author keeps an impartial view during the story.
Pirates of Silicon Valley (1999) (TV) 7
It was good to know about these stories, although the movie was not much appealing.
Please Vote for Me (2007) 7
Easy and fun to see. I was wondering how they made it that in a documentary, nobody cares about the camera and everything looks this much real.
Qian li zou dan qi (2005) 7
Rang-e khoda (1999) 7
Although it was supposed to be touching and nice, I found it too sadistic.
Rooban-e ghermez (1999) 7
It was fair. If you enjoy most of Hatamikia's movies, you will probably enjoy this one, too.
Rusari Abi (1995) 7
Nice and touching.
Ruz-e vagh'e (1995) 7
Sagkoshi (2001) 7
Although very long, but it was still very amusing.
Salaam Cinema (1995) 7
I think the most concentration was on cinema. So, it can be more interesting for people who are interested in cinema (being interested in movies is not sufficient!).
Sanxia haoren (2006) 7
The pace was slow and hence this movie needs a lot of patience to follow. It was nice, but maybe the slow pace prevented it from being a good work, for me.
Sara (1993) 7
I liked it.
Scent of a Woman (1992) 7
Secrets & Lies (1996) 7
It is nice but needs a little bit of patience to follow it. It's all about secrets and lies in the life, something that many many people have experienced and probably have suffered from.
Seven Brides for Seven Brothers (1954) 7
Seven Up! (1964) (TV) 7
Shabhaye roshan (2003) 7
Nice! I didn't like it when I watched it but I found more in it later when I gave thoughts about it.
Shayad Vaghti Deegar (1988) 7
Shi mian mai fu (2004) 7
I am not normally interested in Action and Adventure but this movie was astonishing! It also had a touching romantic theme which made the beauty much more.
Shrek (2001) 7
I'm not in favor of animation generally.
Slumdog Millionaire (2008) 7
Too much materials in one movie, with a Hollywood theme, which makes it a bad movie for me.
Sof Ha'Olam Smola (2004) 7
Sokout (1998) 7
It was nice, but a bit long and sometimes boring for me.
Somersault (2004) 7
I liked it, but I still need some help to understand it.
Spanglish (2004) 7
I felt that it was too sham and unrealistic. The topic was not novel and there have already been many movies like this. By the way, as a personal opinion, those affairs had nothing to do with Princeton University admission.
Sweet November (2001) 7
The topic was too old and predictable, for me!
Tôkyô sonata (2008) 7
I became involved with it. Although it is bitter and painful, it still has an inherent Asian tranquility!
Takhté siah (2000) 7
The Bodyguard (1992) 7
It has beautiful songs by Whitney Houston. The story was good, too.
The Break-Up (2006) 7
The Brooke Ellison Story (2004) (TV) 7
I like these movies which are based on true stories (it makes it more inspiring and stimulating for me!). The movie is very straightforward and did not become boring for me even for a minute.
The Da Vinci Code (2006) 7
The English Patient (1996) 7
The Godfather (1972) 7
The Hottest State (2006) 7
It was difficult for me to understand this movie (it was scattered more than my ability to understand!). I watched it because of the two previous movies of the director, Ethan Hawke (which were Before Sunrise/Sunset) but it was in another scope and didn't satisfy me (for July Delpy it was different as I liked her other works, like Two days in Paris).
The Mix (2000) 7
Funny and exciting, yet peacefully!
The Namesake (2006) 7
I had read the novel which was amazing. I think the movie didn't meet my expectations.
The Notebook (2004) 7
When it comes to chance, I become suspicious. A part of this movie (or better saying, a significant part) is based on chance and that's what I don't like about it. Any way, I have not seen a girl who didn't like this movie.
The Squid and the Whale (2005) 7
I liked it because it illustrated the atmosphere beautifully. It was also nice to see different views at the same time. It also had some obvious goofs which are unforgivable!
The Truman Show (1998) 7
Titanic (1997) 7
A bit cheesy, but still fun!
Two Women (1999) 7
Under solen (1998) 7
Beautiful scenes (villages in Sweden) with a nice story. It was a bit slow.
Une femme est une femme (1961) 7
Honestly speaking, I didn't understand this movie!
Uzak (2002) 7
The pace was very slow and it is not a good choice if you are looking for a normal pace normal story movie. The characters and their relations were depicted beautifully.
Vénus beauté (institut) (1999) 7
W. (2008/I) 7
Artistically, it wasn't an attracting movie for me (or maybe it was not supposed to be). In the sense of politics, it was attracting and curiosity stimulating. Read a little about George W. Bush and his administration before watching this movie, that helps a lot to enjoy the movie more.
We're No Angels (1989) 7
It was amusing and nice. I liked it!
Yao a yao yao dao waipo qiao (1995) 7
For me it was like many movies of Zhang Yimou: I didn't extremely enjoy it, but I liked it and I will remember it. The performances were very good (needless to say, Gong Li was brilliant, as always!), and the movie made me watch all the way. I personally believe that Zhang Yimou's movies are must sees, any way.
Yin shi nan nu (1994) 7
A Fei zheng chuan (1990) 6
It was too complicated (or over complicated) for me to understand. I was expecting something like in the mood for love, but it was not that much easy and straightforward.
A Good Year (2006) 6
The scenes were nice and I expected this movie to be a good one, but it didn't turn out to be. It seemed to cheesy too me and too cliché.
Alila (2003) 6
I could not understand the purpose of this movie well. Any way, the rhythm was too slow.
American Beauty (1999) 6
Arousi-ye Khouban (1989) 6
Too much hysteric, in my opinion!
Atash bas (2006) 6
Good for fun, but not significant, I believe.
Banoo-Ye Ordibehesht (1998) 6
I didn't find this movie attracting.
Breakfast at Tiffany's (1961) 6
I don't understand these old movies. Almost nothing makes sense to me, performances, stories and even scene lightings appeared too unrealistic for me. It seems that the cinema has changed a lot!
Coma (2004) 6
Comme une image (2004) 6
Too much talk, all in French, generally an unpleasant experience!
Coyote Ugly (2000) 6
Good for fun, but in my opinion, absolutely insignificant. I used this movie to learn a lot of English words when I was around 24 years old.
Digeh che khabar? (1992) 6
Good for teenagers (I remember it had a significant impact on me!)
Duo luo tian shi (1995) 6
Honestly, I think that I didn't understand this movie sufficiently. It was not straightforward and too complicated for me, maybe!
Eteraz (2000) 6
I normally don't like Kimiaii's works, so I'm not a good judge about them.
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004) 6
Ghaedeye bazi (2007) 6
Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai (1999) 6
Guys and Dolls (1955/I) 6
House of Sand and Fog (2003) 6
To me, it seemed to be a bit purposeless.
Kadosh (1999) 6
Le prix à payer (2007) 6
Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa (2008) 6
Maybe I was not a proper target for this movie and it is more for children. Any way, I found it trivial with a story which was too ordinary (there are already many movies with the same subject). It was colorful and amusing in many parts, but as a whole, sounded more like a waste of time for me (at the end of the movie I asked "So What?!").
Melinda and Melinda (2004) 6
I am disappointed by recent movies of Woody Allen. I believe that they all have the same theme and the same story (although the appearance might slightly change).
Memoirs of a Geisha (2005) 6
Good story, but presented in a cliche approach. In general, it was good.
Nargess (1992) 6
I found the topic too ordinary.
Nassereddin Shah, Actor-e Cinema (1992) 6
Not Without My Daughter (1991) 6
I don't know what has been the reality behind all this hassle, but some parts sounded unfair and biased to me (at least as an Iranian!). It was amusing and challenging, any way.
Notting Hill (1999) 6
Off the Map (2003) 6
The pace was very slow. It was also a little vague for me (it seems that reading some reviews are inevitable)
Otac na sluzbenom putu (1985) 6
It was different from the other movies by Emir Kustarica. It didn't have the same happy and full of life atmosphere that his other movies have (or I believe so). The pace was somehow slow and in some points I was really disappointed. And eventually, I didn;'t understand the point of the whole movie!
Pane e tulipani (2000) 6
Pas sur la bouche (2003) 6
Romance (1999) 6
Too brash! I believe it was disgustingly rated with too much nudity.
Rosemary's Baby (1968) 6
Shaam-e-akhar (2002) 6
Somehow like other Jeyrani's movies. The good point about this movie is that I have performed in it!
Shiqi sui de dan che (2001) 6
I don't like movies which the whole story is based on stupidity!
Soltan ghalbha (1968) 6
Good for it's time, although it might not make sense today!
Soorati (2002) 6
Somehow funny but not attracting for me (at least).
Starukhi (2003) 6
Straight to One (1994) 6
Talaye sorkh (2003) 6
The Nanny Diaries (2007) 6
The story was too ordinary and easy to guess. This is not bad by itself, but when the film maker wants to demonstrate it as something glorious, then that's the problem!
The Prestige (2006) 6
The Skulls (2000) 6
Tobeh Nosuh (1983) 6
Vakonesh panjom (2003) 6
Too much exaggeration made this movie unrealistic.
Vicky Cristina Barcelona (2008) 6
Who Killed the Electric Car? (2006) 6
The topic was interesting (at least for me) and I expected to enjoy this movie a lot, but I didn't. I think something was wrong here....
Wong gok ka moon (1988) 6
Now it is clear for me that I prefer more recent movies of Wong Kar Wai. This movie contained too much violence and it was not that sort of eye candy that I expected from Wong Kar Wai.
Yihe yuan (2006) 6
Zangha (1985) 6
(500) Days of Summer (2009) 5
For me it was just another American movie and just another proof that I will not like American movies (unless for very exceptional cases). The story and the flow were too old and I found no contribution in this movie. By the way, at the end, I was not sure what was the point of this movie. Only some out of date dialogues and a hopeless effort to convince the viewer that the movie was important?!
Accepted (2006) 5
Happy and cheerful, but not significant. If we consider the audience as teenagers, then the evaluation is changed.
Bitter Moon (1992) 5
Eros (2004) 5
The episode by Wong Kar Wai was reasonable for me; I understood it and enjoyed it. I found the two other episodes clearly terrible.
Flicka (2006) 5
Soft and full of beautiful scenes, but I couldn't find the message meant by filmmaker!
Jackass Number Two (2006) 5
Disgusting for me. Watch this movie if and only if you are interested in these stuff (for example if you are interested in practical jokes, this is a good choice!).
Journey to the Center of the Earth (2008) 5
Too unrealistic! Even Sci-Fi movies should have some sort of real origins to be believable. This movie appeared too cheesy for me.
Lila dit ça (2004) 5
To me it was too primitive and overly brash. I do not believe that these are the ways that life and love are.
Love Story (1970) 5
Nights in Rodanthe (2008) 5
Too cheesy and unrealistic. I honestly don't like movies which make some artificially made loves into something sacred.
Pretty Woman (1990) 5
Scream of the Ants (2006) 5
To me it sounded too cheesy overwhelmed with too much slogan-like dialogues. Also, the actor and the actress did not perform well, I believe.
Shaam-e aroosi (2006) 5
I believe that it was not even a good means of killing time!
Sleepless in Seattle (1993) 5
I think it was too "cheesy". I really don't like this much exaggeration.
The Devil's Advocate (1997) 5
The Terminator (1984) 5
Honestly, I don't like these kind of movies and should really avoid them!
A Lot Like Love (2005) 4
Bicentennial Man (1999) 4
Too long and with little to offer (I don't like Robot-based Sci-Fi)
Norbit (2007) 3
I heard that this movie is more for children than adults; in that case we can take it easier for judging this movie. Any way, I hated it!
The Matrix (1999) 3
I hate it when I hear this much lies all in a row. These sci-fi movies which pretend to be important while have no significance in my opinion, are terrible!
