I watch on average more than 2 movies a day. I consume movies, with a strong focus on foreign fares (mostly Asian) and off-beat oddities. I built this site to keep track of my DVD collection, write reviews, maintain a blog where i write weekly about the US Box office numbers and various movie-related news, keep track of every movie i watch, collect DVD covers and set-up virtual shelves and so on. RatingMovies.ComŽ was born and grew from there.

I made all those sophisticated tools available to anybody so you can do all of this too. This is a site for film and DVD enthusiasts (i.e. freaks) where you can build your own communities, with your very own movie and dvd lists, reviews, blogs and RSS feed, mailing lists, a home page like this one, and even keep track of movies your friends borrowed from you.

2011.09.09 - What Does Horror Mean To You? at Brutal As Hell

I am starting to write this article right after I just finished watching Dario Argento?s Stendhal Syndrome for the third time in about two years. I am fascinated by it because it is likely Argento?s last good/great film (Dracula 3D doesn?t look very promising so far), and because surprisingly, what disturbs me the most is the brutality of the film and that Dario put his own daughter Asia at the center of it. Talk about a Freudian setup. Additionally, the movie is gorgeous. Yes, its use of digital effects is very crude, even for the time, but the film is otherwise very polished in the greatest Argento tradition. I appreciate that. I also appreciate Asia greatly....

2011.08.25 - Not Quite Hollywood review at Brutal As Hell

 Documentaries about films are a tricky affair. Either they have to be about an incredible film, or the documentary itself has to be cool and uncover little known nuggets about a cult classic, or they have to paint an epic movement and give you tons of information, references, and cool interviews. Not Quite Hollywood is of the latter kind, but unlike the recent American Grindhouse, it manages to pile on so much energy, laughs, outrageous interviews and cool film bits...

Screamers (1995) reviewed on 2019.08.17Rated 4 stars. Click here for details...

A solid inventive B-Movie with a fun cast, an interesting premise, and great execution in spite of its low budget.


- Laurent Hasson

Zombie 2 (1979) reviewed on 2019.08.17Rated 4.5 stars. Click here for details...

Classic Zombie film from one of the top horror directors. 'Nuf said.


- Laurent Hasson

Horror Express (1972) reviewed on 2019.08.17Rated 4 stars. Click here for details...

A great cast, with great visuals, real tension, and an interesting story with many twists and turns. I totally did not expect this movie to be the way it was in the sense that the story felt quite modern in terms of featuring an ancient shape shifting monster. Clearly, films like John Carpenter's The Thing share some similar DNA.


- Laurent Hasson

Game, The (1997) reviewed on 2019.08.13Rated 4.5 stars. Click here for details...

After Seven, which left most of its audience reeling with an ending that functioned as a punch to the gut, David Fincher followed with a much more subdued affair. What it lacks in blood and guts however, it gained in finesse because the ending here is equally punchy and emotional, without the visceral effect of gore. Michael Douglas should have won an Oscar for this role as it anchors the film so perfectly: it's him, combined with flawless writing, that builds the film up until its marvelous ending.


- Laurent Hasson

Fight Club (1999) reviewed on 2019.08.13Rated 5 stars. Click here for details...

After hitting his audience over the head hard with Seven, confusing the hell out of his audience in The Game, Fincher was at it again with Fight Club. The film is still incredible, anchored with amazing performances and dotted with great visuals. Yes, the visual effects have aged somewhat by today's standard, but 20y ago, they were top of the line and innovative.


- Laurent Hasson

Do The Right Thing (1989) reviewed on 2019.08.13Rated 5 stars. Click here for details...

A classic as classics go: incredible cinematography and art direction, fantastic performances and a soundtrack to dream about. The topic of the film is as current today in 2019 as it was groundbreaking back in 1989.
