A lot of "All Time Favorites" I've never seen or simply didn't enjoy for one reason or another.

And I did say best "I've seen in theatres" =P


im 22, so we're in the same age bracket. have you ever seen goodfellas? or even the departed? an action movie like this cannot really be the best movie of all time. it can be very entertaining, but its not "deep" enough in my opinion for a title like that. i actually really liked the bourne identity but i havent seen the 2nd one yet, nor this one. i plan on it though.


I have not seen Goodfellas.

I saw the Departed and couldn't stand the dialogue after a while and it took away from the movie as a whole...yes, I understand they are mobsters...but it wouldnt have been bad or difficult to tell the story with a limited use of the F-bomb....I also was a little confused during the ending when everything went down...but that is probably because it was 2 AM.

The way I see it, the "deepness" of this movie comes from the other movies. It doesn't have to be as deep in itself because the last two movies have provided a lot of the story.

Bourne Ultimatum

Good flick! I was entertained all the way through, but it was pretty much more of the same. I had recently watched the other two "Bourne" movies in anticipation of this and they're very formulaic. One thing I didn't get... the scene in the previews where he said; "If you were in your office we'd been having this conversation face to face". I know they put it in the movie becuase they have a cool line like that in every Bourne movie, but what it did was tell the other guy where he was who then in turn locked down the building making Bourne's escape EXTREMELY difficult. If you can overlook things like that and the horrific car crashes he walks away from, then it's a darn good action/suspense flick.

I'd give it a B+

I'm excited that the Bourne film is getting good reviews. I absolutely loved the first two films and I find them far superior to any Bond flick that's been made. Can't wait to see it.

Casino Royale was awesome. Best Bond flick since Pierce started screwing the whole thing up.

I thought Golden Eye was really good. I also think Pierce was a good Bond and that it wasn't his fault the last couple movies were crap. He didn't write the script or direct them. I agree that Daniel Craig is a really good replacement.

I love the Bond movies don't get me wrong but Bourne movies seem to be a lot more gritty and less cheesy. I thought Casino Royale was extremely overrated also.

Completely agree. Casino Royale is a decent movie, but the Bourne movies are much better. Seeing the third one tonight, can't wait.

There are certain parts of the Bourne movies that I like better for sure, but each Bourne movie essentially has the exact same plot.

A) Bourne beats up a few guys, he escapes.
B) Flashback
C) He gets in a kick ass fight with a guy and uses some unconventional method to kill him, he escapes.
D) Flashback
E) They almost catch him in a car chase, he escapes.
F) Flashback
G) Major revelation made, they have him cornered, he escapes.

A) MI6 learns of a mad man's plot to take over the world. Reluctantly assigns Bond to it.
B) Bond meets a good girl and a bad girl with a double entendre for a name. Bonds sleeps with bad girl.
C) Bond narrowly misses thwarting plot.
D) Bond thwarts plot.
E) Bond sleeps with good girl.
