Posted Dec 4, 2003
2.5/5 —— Young Hannah Queen of the Vampires " Though owing a great deal of its style to Hammer's atmospheric horror films, Young Hannah, Queen of the Vampires is far less interesting than those genre stalwarts are." — Daily-Reviews
Posted Mar 29, 2003
3/5 —— Kiss Me Quick!/House on Bare Mountain (2001) " Though [House on Bare Mountain] certainly won't win any awards for the material, I was quite pleased to find that I was actually interested in the story..." — Daily-Reviews
Posted Mar 29, 2003
2/5 —— Kiss Me Quick! (1995) " Although I love an occasional bad joke just as much as the next guy, my tolerance threshold was breached thanks to this film's incessant bad puns and double entendres." — Daily-Reviews
Posted Mar 29, 2003
48% Jackass - The Movie (2002) " Although I found the film to be hilarious and thoroughly enjoyable, it is really nothing more than a collection of reaction-causing stunts with little or no technical proficiency behind it." — Daily-Reviews
Posted Nov 10, 2002
3/5 13% Waking Up in Reno (2002) " [Reno] may have a few grating gaps in logic and feels as if a good chunk of its story ended up on the cutting room floor, but there is just enough charm and humor peppered throughout to make it feel as if it wasn't a complete waste of time to sit through." — Daily-Reviews
Posted Nov 10, 2002
3.5/5 —— Dead and Rotting (2002) " ... the film succeeds because it is able to present [its] story in a thoroughly entertaining and briskly paced manner." — Daily-Reviews
Posted Oct 31, 2002
3.5/5 —— City Hunter: Secret Service (2000) " For those familiar with the feature film version of City Hunter, this version may seem a tad bit too jokey." — Daily-Reviews
Posted Oct 21, 2002
2.5/5 85% Phörpa (The Cup) (1999) " While I can certainly commiserate with the plight of the Tibetan monks, I'm not sure that seeing a film about their interest in soccer is my idea of a good time." — Daily-Reviews
Posted Oct 21, 2002
1/5 97% Spirited Away (2001) " On paper, there may seem to be some semblance of plot, but it is really just a distillation of the few coherent events that actually occur in the film." — Daily-Reviews
Posted Oct 16, 2002
3/5 —— Everything Moves Alone (2001) " Everything Moves Alone is an interesting character study/comedy that seems to almost straddle the narrative border between such other independent notables as The Brothers McMullen and Clerks." — Daily-Reviews
Posted Oct 2, 2002
3/5 —— Goliath and the Dragon (1960) " Regardless of the title and character name changes, Goliath and the Dragon is actually a pretty entertaining little film despite its painfully low budget..." — Daily-Reviews
Posted Sep 26, 2002
4.5/5 84% Gremlins (1984) " ... the story is so involving that it becomes incredibly easy to forget that the majority of the cast is made of fake fur and foam rubber." — Daily-Reviews
Posted Sep 15, 2002
5/5 —— Beastie Boys Video Anthology (2000) Daily-Reviews
Posted Sep 14, 2002
4/5 73% Cat O'Nine Tails (1971) " The film's plot is as finely crafted as its visual style, dealing with the matter of genetics and its role in the human animal." — Daily-Reviews
Posted Sep 10, 2002
2.5/5 61% Tuck Everlasting (2002) " ...it wears down the soul to have to spend an hour and a half watching the cinematic equivalent of shuffling down a long dirt road kicking up dust clouds." — Daily-Reviews
Posted Sep 8, 2002
4/5 86% Jackie Brown (1997) " This film concerns itself more with the characters... than it does showcasing bloody gunfights and hip exchanges..." — Daily-Reviews
Posted Sep 8, 2002
5/5 94% Pulp Fiction (1994) " Simply put, Pulp Fiction is pure brilliance." — Daily-Reviews
Posted Sep 8, 2002
3/5 —— Grail (2010) " If it weren't for the fact that The Grail does contain some completely unsympathetic characters, it may have turned out to be one of the best independent films I have ever seen." — Daily-Reviews
Posted Sep 6, 2002
4.5/5 90% The Return of the Living Dead (1985) " O'Bannon's script is one of the few that manages to combine both terror and humor in a manner that works perfectly..." — Daily-Reviews
Posted Sep 4, 2002
2.5/5 —— Transylvania Twist (1989) " All throughout the film, the actors seem conscious that they are only in a silly movie and don't seem to play into the joke..." — Daily-Reviews
Posted Sep 2, 2002
3/5 61% The Last House on the Left (1972) " Those expecting this film to feature goofy chills like Craven's other titles will probably be shocked..." — Daily-Reviews
Posted Aug 27, 2002
4/5 52% Cecil B. Demented (2000) " What is truly great about Cecil B. Demented is the fact that it takes potshots not only at films, but at film audiences." — Daily-Reviews
Posted Aug 25, 2002
3.5/5 60% Cannibal Holocaust (1979) " This is an extreme warning: Cannibal Holocaust is not for children or the squeamish!" — Daily-Reviews
Posted Aug 25, 2002
2.5/5 —— Cave of the Living Dead (1965) " The [film] focuses a positive light on topics such as acceptance and pushing aside predetermined notions." — Daily-Reviews
Posted Aug 25, 2002
3.5/5 75% Peter Pan (1953) " Peter Pan hides much more underneath its surface than just the unbridled wonder of youth." — Daily-Reviews
Posted Aug 25, 2002
3.5/5 73% A Bucket of Blood (1959) " The chase scene isn't even very exciting when it does come, and the climax of the film makes little sense when physics is applied to it." — Daily-Reviews
Posted Aug 20, 2002
1.5/5 —— Blood Beast Terror (1967) " This film has the right atmosphere to be a Hammer film, but the famed British horror studio more than likely wouldn't have touched this killer moth script." — Daily-Reviews
Posted Aug 20, 2002
4/5 56% Cannibal! The Musical (Alferd Packer: The Musical) (1996) " Apart from the inherent interest of seeing a pre-"South Park" Parker and Stone in their first effort, Cannibal! also offers up some pretty decent laughs." — Daily-Reviews
Posted Aug 20, 2002
3/5 —— Cannibal Ferox (1997) " Where Deodato's film is subtle about pointing out who the real barbarians are, Lenzi's comes right out and points the finger at us." — Daily-Reviews
Posted Aug 20, 2002

Posted Aug 20, 2002
2.5/5 57% Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey (1991) " All the charm that was present in the original is nowhere to be found here." — Daily-Reviews
Posted Aug 20, 2002
2.5/5 91% The Brothers McMullen (1995) " ... it's almost hard to imagine such an innocuous little film even getting noticed, let alone garnering tons of praise." — Daily-Reviews
Posted Aug 20, 2002
5/5 80% BookWars (2000) " Rosette has a way of describing things in his narration that invoke the readings of the beat poets and makes one long for a good book to read." — Daily-Reviews
Posted Aug 20, 2002
3.5/5 63% The Brothers (2001) " Cut from the same cloth as films like The Wood, The Brothers is a fairly funny look at four friends faced with the horrors of finally growing up." — Daily-Reviews
Posted Aug 20, 2002
4.5/5 78% Braveheart (1995) " Braveheart is a magnificent movie, and certainly one of the most enduring films of our era." — Daily-Reviews
Posted Aug 20, 2002
4/5 80% Sei donne per l'assassino (Blood and Black Lace) (Six Women for the Murderer) (1960) " As far as style goes, Bava heaps it onto this film and turns out one of his best looking films ever." — Daily-Reviews

Posted Aug 20, 2002

Posted Aug 20, 2002
2.5/5 —— Body Beneath " On a technical level, the film does certainly show a little more proficiency over other low budget fare." — Daily-Reviews
Posted Aug 20, 2002
1.5/5 —— Bloody Murder (1999) " It's sad when a movie rips off another one, but even sadder when they mention the source they ripped it off from." — Daily-Reviews
Posted Aug 20, 2002
3.5/5 —— Black Cat (Gatto nero) (1981) " Surprisingly, for a film falling between [a bevy of] gore soaked films, The Black Cat is actually a little more reserved than one might expect." — Daily-Reviews
Posted Aug 19, 2002
4.5/5 63% The Big Blue (Le Grand bleu) (1988) " Luc Besson has achieved something wonderful with The Big Blue." — Daily-Reviews
Posted Aug 19, 2002
