Perhaps my favourite Giant Gorilla starring film. Lovable Joe young will melt your heart, and the very good performance of Charlize Theron is heart-warming to. A very enjoyable family film. Used animatronic Gorilla so the effects are really good. Really recommend this film.

Votes: 588,285 | Gross: $117.72M
Has been criticized for being a film that 'thinks it is smarter than it is'. Ignore that silly criticism, it's entertaining, funny and it is smart but not obnoxious. People who don't understand the point of the film will hate it. But a warning about the end, they explain WAAAY too much at the end, so I advise you stop the film before you watch the scene where the main detective is on the bridge with the french woman (I think her real name is Melanie Laurent). But you can watch it but I felt it revealed to much, and it should have been just silently acknowledged, because we know what he's going to say. It takes out the mystery. But it's a good film.
15. Donnie Darko (2001)

R | 90 min | Action, Crime, Horror

Votes: 57,373 | Gross: $7.71M
Impressively good. A bit gory but in a good way. A bit like saw but It still retains it's own individuality. The ending is a horrible shock, you know what's coming, but you don't want it to.
