City of God (aka Cidade de Deus) – 2002 Crime I wasn’t so sure about City of God before watching it…sure I heard good things (it’s ranked in the IMDB top 25), but it always seemed like something I wasn’t really interested in. My expectations were surpassed by a mile. When watching this movie, I
Borat – 2006 Comedy Watch this video. I think the interview is hilarious (“What state were you in? I was happy!”) and Borat himself is funny…but that’s really all you need to see of Borat. After 10 or 15 minutes, the Borat act gets old and drags on. In the movie, the interviews with Americans

Avatar – 2009 Sci-Fi Even though Avatar is a flawed movie that doesn’t really live up to the hype, it is still definitely worth seeing. I think anyone going into Avatar thinking they’re going to get some outstanding story is going to be disappointed with the movie; they story isn’t bad, but it is cliche.
