Have two minutes? Watch the top 250 movies of all time 

"Are you not entertained?" Russell Crowe-as-Maximus shouts at the 1:35 mark of this brilliant movie montage. The Top 250 movies (give or take) as rated by have been combined and condensed into an impressively edited two-and-a-half-minute package. (msnNOW)

Man with the Iron Fists, The (2012)(Review)
What makes the The Man with the Iron Fists a highly effective slice of kung fu bliss is that storytellers RZA and Eli Roth did some serious homework before production and it shows. The insane attention to detail that was paid on this project - from the myriad deadly weapons to the lavish art direction to the gravity-defying fights to even the various warrior clans - elevates their story and should no doubt keep the classic fu fans out there riveted from start to finish. It's not nearly as boisterous a film as the trailers may lead you to believe; RZA and Roth also work in a lot of quieter, subtle moments that make for a nice balance alongside the insane action set pieces. The eclectic cast members of Iron Fists are all mostly great as well across the board; Russell Crowe, as expected, pretty much steals the show as Jack Knife in what is his best performance in well over 10 years; (Dread Central)
