Click here to go back to the movies I'd give a 6 or a 7 on a scale of 1 - 10 and to read me tear myself in two over my 1999 review of The Phantom Menace!

Every Juicy Movie Thing That You've Ever Wanted To Know:
Movies I'd Give an 8 or 9
(Really, REALLY good - but not quite perfect - movies released from 1996 to 2001)
In the opinion of:  Alex Sandell

These are the movies that leave you feeling satisfied.  They're sort of like really good sex.  You feel good after watching them, but you know they could have been just a little bit better.  Maybe the orgasm was off a bit, or the moaning didn't sound quite right.  Maybe the girl's ass didn't shine the way you thought it would when you rubbed it with baby oil and put it under a heat lamp.  But, I'm getting off-topic, and my heat lamp's bulb burned out over a year ago, and my baby oil's expired.  Anyway, here is a nice list of some damn fine movies that came out over the past five years.
