Obvious Child (2014)
Ocean’s Eleven (2001)
Octopussy (007) (1983)
With a memorable villain and henchmen, Kamal Khan and Gobinda, their involvement in the circus, and the leading lady having the film named after her, “Octopussy” provides Roger Moore with one of his best showings yet, as the secret agent James Bond. Top it off with some excellent action scenes, including a night time raid from a man with a yo-yo saw blade, and the 13th film in the 007 series proves quite successful.
Of Fathers And Sons (2018)
Office Christmas Party (2016)
Office Space (1999)
O.J.: Made in America (2016)
Old School (2003)
This is an all time classic movie. The cast is amazingly hilarious and there are so many funny one liners that I can’t even fit them all in this little box. “You’re my boy Blue!”
Omen, The (2006)
On Body And Soul (2017)
Probably the best musical i’ve ever seen, especially since it wasn’t stagy like most. It was raw and a great way for the two to get their music heard. As far as the story goes, it was lackluster and unequivelant to the rest of the film. Watch it for the music not the plot!
One Day (2011)
Though the concept of One Day appears original (checking in with two characters on the same day every year), the film as a whole remains slightly too predictable and majorly over-dramatized. My first thought is that this many interesting things could not possibly happen to the same people every year on the same day. Anne Hathaway far out-acts her counterpart Jim Sturgess, who becomes less believable as his character grows older. There are some great emotional moments, but overall the film tries far too hard to be the next Nicolas Sparks drama.
One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest (1975)
Easily one of Jack Nicholson’s greatest roles (which is saying a lot). I am hard pressed to find anything wrong with this film. It is eerie, funny, and politically inspiring. One of my all time favorite films.
One for the Money (2012)
Basically this year’s The Bounty Hunter, besides a sexy and curvy Katherine Heigl, this comedy has nothing going for it, lacking an interesting storyline, any real action, and anyone worth watching besides the leading lady. Playing its cards right with sex appeal earns this film the very little respect I end up having for it.
One Small Step (short) (2018)
On Her Majesty’s Secret Service (007) (1969)
Easily one of my favorite 007 films, George Lazenby’s one and done performance as James Bond lands him fairly high on my list of the best Bonds. With the continue story of the villain Blofeld and Bond’s first real relationship with a woman (and tragic end), this not only stands the test of time, but produces the most interesting and well-preserved characters.
On Her Shoulders (2018)
The Onion Movie (2008)
Best parts include Steven Seagal playing Steven Seagal in Cockpuncher. Loved the integration of the skits into the whole movie. Didn’t expect much from it and it didn’t disappoint, but wasn’t anything genius. If you like MadTV and SNL, you’ll love this.
Only Angels Have Wings (1939)
Nothing against Howard Hawks, but this film was all over the place. It was unfocused and unbelievable. For example, the ending was so unrealistic, that a woman would completely give up and stay with Cary Grant with the smallest notion possible. The love story should have been focused on, but instead you make an hour long film into an almost 2 hour film with the addition of a brother-killing pilot storyline. I just missed the point of this film and it became excruciating. I’m not for blinding giving a film 4 or 5 stars just because it’s black and white and from the B&W era. Howard Hawks was amazing for his time, but it doesn’t mean everything he touched was gold. (Bringing Up Baby for example, the worst film I’ve ever seen to date (seriously). I’m a film student and I’m still not convinced. Sure, we couldn’t be where we are today if it hadn’t been for those in the past, but that doesn’t mean everything that made was spectacular. That aside, the performances were great, and I loved seeing all the characters from Cary Grant to Jean Arthur, to the Kid and his nemesis Killogan and the two pilots fighting for Jean’s steak dinner.
On The Basis Of Sex (2010)
On The Seventh Day (En el Séptimo Día) (2018)
Open Grave (2014)
Oranges, The (2012)
With a great cast and of-our-time, messy love story, “The Oranges” plays out similar to an off-beat comedy like “Orange County”. The narration is used effectively to tell the story and comes from the best character it could (Alia Shawcat), while the story itself is fresh, depicting the older man / younger woman scenario like its never been told before, bringing to light the complex nature of doing what makes you happy, regardless of what people around you will say. Hugh Laurie shows that he definitely has a place following the conclusion of “House M.D.” while the rest of the cast fill their roles nicely without much rising above their regular performances.
Original Sin (2001)
Though Angelina Jolie is stunning and commanding in her role, she cannot make up for the over-dramatic, wishy-washy writing and lackluster, half-assed performances from Jane and Banderas.
Cute deaf child who is actually deaf in real life by the way. See this movie if for nothing else but her performance. Seriously.
Orphanage, The (2007)
As good or better than Pan’s Labyrinth. Very awesome shot selections, especially the ones in the dark and the twist ending made the movie even better. Hopefully del Toro keeps these movies coming.
Others, The (2001)
Save for the few truly frightening moments, The Others is rather too transparent for a horror film. Nicole Kidman performs wonderfully, as do the amazing child actors, but due to the constraints of the debilitating setting, there is not much range. The concept works well and provides for some creepiness, and the fact that it does not dwell following the big reveal completely saves the film.
Other Woman, The (2011)
The Other Woman, I fear, is simply drama for dramas sake. Needless paths are taken to create drama and though drama is what makes up any plot, none of this appeared unique or even relevant at times. With frankly too much yelling and constant melodramatic conflicts, Portman does her best in the role, but with everyone’s character dropping their convictions at a dime, it is hard to invest in the emotions. There are films that have handled this concept much better. However, it is always great to see Natalie Portman.
Our Curse (short) (2013)
Our Idiot Brother (2011)
Paul Rudd nails his role, however the same cannot be said for the sisters. With very little comedy and a predictable ending, there is nothing that really sets this film apart.
