The Nitpicker Guide to the Movies “See the films you love in a whole new way!” “Fifteen hundred years ago everybody knew that the Earth was the center of the universe.

Week Seven: #45 - I Am Legend

The Nitpicker Guide to the Movies “See the films you love in a whole new way!” To make the top 50, a movie doesn’t even have to be unique and incredible. (Shrek 3 was neither.) It does have to be something that people want to see over and over again--which drives up the box office gross. Here’s my... Sign in to see full entry.

The Nitpicker Guide to the Movies “See the films you love in a whole new way!” All hail the Golden Age of comic book movies!

Week Three: #49 - Armageddon

The Nitpicker's Guide to the Movies “See the films you love in a whole new way!” So I hadn’t seen this movie since 1998, when I saw it in the theater. Which surprised me, when I thought about it.

Week Two: #50 - King Kong

The Nitpicker's Guide to the Movies “See the films you love in a whole new way!” After the phenomenal and well-deserved success of The Lord of the Rings trilogy, Peter Jackson could pretty much do whatever he wanted.

Week One: Why Am I Reading This, Again?

I can still remember the very first movie I ever saw in a theater. It was one of the Benji films ( Benji Does Backflips, I think) and I was three or four years old. I distinctly remember having to fold the seat up and sit on the raised edge just to see the screen. I also remember being absolutely... Sign in to see full entry.
