Christopher Nolan's Inception

Inception

Inception is a science fiction film written and directed by Christopher Nolan (Memento, Batman Begins, The Dark Knight), but it’s also – on some level – a generic heist movie. Except the heist takes place in the subconscious. It's a really great premise: what if people could enter a shared dreamscape? And how safe would someone’s thoughts be inside a communal dream?

Adrian Brody behind-the-scenes in Predators

Predators

Predators is the second direct sequel to the 1987 Arnold Schwarzenegger film Predator, but it’s the fifth movie to feature the alien hunters. Sadly – even though the creatures have been featured in (dozens of games, almost two dozen comic book storylines and) multiple movies – the original film is the highlight of the franchise.

Zoe Saldana playing Neytiri in Avatar

Avatar

This review won’t compare Avatar with any of the other “character in a new, strange culture” films like Fern Gully, The New World, The Last Samurai or Dances With Wolves… mainly because I’ve never seen any of those movies and the only part of Pocahontas that I remember is the excellent song “Colors of the Wind.” Also, everyone knows that Smu

Megan Fox's ass in Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen

Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen

You might think that Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen is a mere popcorn flick, but actually, it is the best film of 2009 and could very well be the best film of the decade. That statement is something you won’t read anywhere else and, unfortunately, it is a completely fabricated falsity.

Christian Bale as John Connor in Terminator: Salvation

Terminator: Salvation

The Terminator franchise had apparently fallen so far that it needed to be filled with new life and energy through a slight re-imagining. This fourth movie changes the timeline from the original films, loses the time travel aspect and essentially becomes a prequel where the technology of the machines is concerned.

Chris Pine as James T. Kirk and Zachary Quinto as Spock in Star Trek

Star Trek XI (2009)

The Star Trek franchise has slowly deteriorated over the years and someone finally decided that it was time for a reboot. (Technically, this version of Star Trek is more of a reimagining, but let’s not complicate matters.) And just in case you weren’t aware: any failing franchise can be rebooted after a few years… think “James Bond,” “Batman” or “Battlestar Galactica.” J.J.
