Schindler's List 
Schindler's list rounds out my Top 50!
4/4 stars

I definitely had very high expectations before I watched this film. After all, I was one of the few people that I knew that hadn't seen Schindler's List. Recently, high expectations have been my downfall coming into a film because I expect too much and that is clearly the case here.Sure, this film is very highly regarded and may even go down as the best film of the 90's, however, it didn't blow me away as I expected or show me an aspect of filmmaking that I have never seen before. Spielberg does an incredible job as usual using his keen sense of angles and dimensions that make every scene speak volumes. The cinematography by Janucz Kaminsky captures a lot of the feeling of the second world war, yet it didn't blow me away.I found it interesting that in this film the characters seem to take a secondary role to the setting, history and true story of the Holocaust. Liam Neeson played Schindler well, but did not affect me like other characters in great films. Even Ralph Fienns character was played well but also failed to register as a memorable one.Don't get me wrong, I really liked this film and the message it sends. I don't think this is the best film of the 90's, however, realize that it is still one of the best. And that is why it isn't ranked as high on my list as most people do, but it does round out my Top 50 because of the fantastic story that it tells.
