    Jiro Dreams of Sushi (2011)

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1772925/

    Compared to Jiro, all of us don't work hard enough.

    He's been working since he was 9 when his father told him to get out of the house, he is on his own.

    He is 85 years old now and he still works 7 days a week, from pre-dawn to late night/early morning.

    I give this film a

    5/5

    The Dark Knight Rises - 5/5. WOW....

    "Suddenly I heard a tapping, as of someone gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door. You heard me rapping, Right?"

    2 films that came out the same year before The Abyss came out.

    I guess they were hoping to start an underwater movie craze and none of them, including The Abyss, became Box Office hits

    DeepStar Six (1989)

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0097179/

    2/5



    Leviathan (1989)

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0097737/

    Raise the Titanic (1980)

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0081400/

    2/5

    Why can't anyone make a decent Clive Cussler Dirk Pitt novel to film adaptation is beyond me.

    Sahara was also based on a Clive Cussler novel and it was supposed to be the first of three movies based on Cussler's Dirk Pitt books.

    But after it bombed financially and critically, I doubt we will ever see another Dirk Pitt movie again!!

    I've been saying this for years.

    I wish they would make a full length film with just the squirrel.

    The other characters are starting to wear thin.

    Battleship (2012)

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1440129/

    What a piece of Bull Poop!

    This movie has every war and action movie cliches and absurdities and plot devices we've ever seen in the past 30 years of movie making, all rolled into one!!

    I hope there won't be a sequel but from the ending, it looks like there will be one!

    Exclamation

    The Change-Up (2011)

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1488555/

    The movie is funny in some parts, crude in others and just downright juvenile in most of it.

    3/5

    But Olivia Wilde is White Hot!

    By the way, I found this in the 1989 movie Leviathan.



    Recognize it?

    Some of the special effects in this film was one of that company's earliest project!

    The Outfit (1973)

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0071960/

    This is based on the 3rd book in the series of books, with the first being Point Blank (1967) with Lee Marvin, which is what Mel Gibson's Payback was the remake of.

    A well made gangster revenge film - they don't make movies like this anymore - featuring a young Joanna Cassidy, almost 10 years before she played the Snake Charmer Replicant in Blade Runner.

    4.5/5

    The Towering Inferno (1974)

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0072308/

    4/5

    They don't make this kind of movies anymore.

    This movie will also be too expensive to be remade today.

    Made for $14 Million in 1974.

    Adjusted for inflation, that's $65.1 Million in 2012 dollar.

    $65.1 Million budget for a movie nowadays is considered low budget.

    That amount does not include marketing cost.

    To get this movie properly made as a big budget blockbuster potential, it would cost $300 Million.

    Question is will it justify such a large budget at the box office?

    For a movie nowadays to be considered a box office success, it has to earn 2.5 times its budget.

    If they were to remake this movie for $300 Million, it will not make a profit because it will have to make $750 million at the box office.
