The first time I saw this, I was expecting no more than some sort of macho entertainment about white-collar dudes who box as a hobby, but instead I found a movie that was not only very entertaining, but also intelligent, relevant, and full of unexpected turns.

Musa (2001, R)
8/10

This Korean period piece delivers pretty much everything you could want in an "epic" film: battles and landscapes and heroes and villains and hope and despair and lovers and masters and slaves and cowardice and heroism and honor and dishonor and sorrow and excitement and etc.

Reality Bites (1994, PG-13)
7/10

The characters in this early '90s post-college coming-of-age tale are too stereotyped, and the movie takes itself too seriously, but it still resonated with me a little bit; I knew people who were a lot like these guys.
