The Interpreter

I give this movie five large dumps.  The dialog was completely idiotic.  Just slightly more idiotic than the characters in this complete and total waste of film, who can't maintain a consistent personality for longer than thirty minutes.  The only good part was the quote that the President read at gunpoint.  There was no plot to figure out because new villains kept popping up out of nowhere to replace the ones that were blown up, shot, or beaten to death.  Except, of course, for the ultimate reason for the assassination, which was given away twenty minutes into the film.  Even Kofi Annan and Hans Blix would've walked out in the middle of this movie.

Star Wars Episode III:  Revenge of the Sith

This is the one that blows all the others right out of the water.  It's a bit more melodramatic than most but it's also by far the most powerful.  This movie grabs you from the battle scene at the very beginning and won't let you go until the final battle between Anakin and Obi-wan.  Vader, Baby.  Vader.  Yeah!  The movie opening with the camera following two fighters as they fly through an enormous space battle above Coruscant was spectacular!  While it may make some moviegoers nauseous, I enjoyed it immensely.  I also liked the message that Lucas included about moral relativism and how it can be a path to evil in and of itself.
