This will be a simple repository (Not a ranking!) where i will place Movies I liked and not. Possibly, for some of them, Iwill give a brief explaination of my opinion. I hope that this list would be useful for someone that find its taste similar to mine, i think that the most useful part of this list is the ‘no’ part, much more informative, and with more entries, than the ‘yes’ part. This page is useful especially for me, because i can file movies in my mind in a better way and, hopefully, save same neurons for this useless knowledge. A special section about mathematical movies is given and also one about Kim Ki Duk director.
Unfortunately this is a Yes/Doh/No opinion, marks are meaningless and in practice many good movies will end up in Doh, No. A yes movie is a movie that I could see again and again. A doh movie was just entertaining and a No movie is just… crap.

A general comment about Math Movies: unfortunately a movie about Math would not be comprehensible by a lot of people, because of the lot of notion you have to know all around, so usually a movie about Math is a biography or some strange stuff where some guys look like to genius that do incomphrensible stuff, also mathematics in these movies is associated to useless phenomena in nature. This is a lot chagrining for mathematics, so in general i would suggest to not watch this kind of movies.
Pi – mystic mathematics
The butterfly effect (didn’t like at all), The proof , A beautiful mind ( however a good movie )
