Opinions About Specific Movies and their DVDs

Titanic Technically brilliant, Screenplay could have used a re-write. Cameron is a film making God.
The Matrix Awesome. Easily one of the best Sci-fi films ever made.
Terminator 2 Unquestionably a Science Fiction Classic.
Star Wars 2nd greatest sci-fi Film of all time, behind The Empire Strikes Back. The Prequels are a souless embarrasment by comparison.
Godzilla Dreadfull.
Independence Day Not the genres finest outing.
