    well, my list includes..
    Forest gump - Life of a ordinary man
    Pearl Harbour - tragic story of pearl harbour and it's revenge
    The Terminal - story of Viktor Navorski(tom hanks), a man without a country - stranded at the New York airport.
    green mile - u gotta see this!
    Saving Private Ryan - the most realistic version of "invasion of Normandy" at the Omaha Beach - Warning: this is very close to the real thing, not for light hearted.
    The day after tomorrow: our true tomorrow(unfortunately)
    Cast Away - this is my favorite! about a FedEx employee who is stranded on a deserted island with no hope of seeing his fiancee after his plane goes down over the South Pacific.
    Munich - Very accurate presentation of the Munich massacre that occurred during the 1972 Summer Olympics in Munich, West Germany, when members of the Israeli Olympic team were taken hostage by the Palestinian Arab militant group Black September, a group with ties to Yasser Arafat’s Fatah organization. warning: not for light hearted!!

    Saw Transporters 2 yesterday-great action movie but lacks story and quality dialogues
    Rating-3/5

    Also,Apocalypto-fabulous direction and acting drags a bit coz the runtime is over 140mins
    Rating-4/5

    Just came back from watching Harry Potter and The Order Of Phoenix
    I'll give it 2.5 Stars.

    If you never read Harry Potter books then this film is not for you. The story is quite disjoined and too fast to get(unless you read it before). The built to climax was good, but what could've been the best climax in the series was made into an boring drag.
    The sets and special effect ,as usual, quite good and do justice to book. Acting by all actors was quite good. Luna Lovegood looked very cute and beautiful.(though she isn't meant to be but I ain't complaining :)) )Emma Watson as Hermonie was once again stunning(She isn't meant to be like that either).Specially Professor Umbridge steals the show with her brilliant performance.
    If you're an HP fan , you'll surely want to watch the story unfold in silver screen . But it may disappoint you because of the pace like it did to me.And if you never read book, you can very well save your money.

    Crimson Tide
    Invincible (dunno if its pre-2000 but this is a mind blowing, well made movie...stars Mark Wahlberg, and its just great!!)

    I liked Shooter for Wahlberg and Sniping Scenes.. Story dint appeal to me.
    88 Minutes- A good movie by Al-Pacino which keeps you entertained every single minute of it.
    The shawshank redemption - I must thank you guyz for recommending this. Otherwise I'd have missed a great movie.
    The wicker man - by Nicholas Cage, quite a different story..
