Biography:
Ted Prigge was born on March 27, 1979, and has been reviewing movies (off-and-on) for around four years now. Socially inept, he budgets his time around seeing movies, reading books, and going to film school at Temple University, with delusional hopes of one day becoming a filmmaker of sorts. Or at the very least a well-paid Hollywood hack writer. | All-Time Favorites: La Dolce Vita, Some Like It Hot, The Graduate, Brazil, Manhattan, Bringing Up Baby, McCabe & Mrs. Miller, Repulsion, Citizen Kane, Annie Hall, 8 1/2, The Third Man, The Cook the Thief his Wife and her Lover, The Empire Strikes Back, and Pierrot le fou

Posted Oct 11, 2006
3.5/4 91% Le Roi de coeur (King Of Hearts) (1967) " A really hilarious and very pleasing film that doesn't argue its message with the viewer via corny or ignorant measures." — rec.arts.movies.reviews
Posted May 6, 2003
4/4 94% Blood Simple (1984) " Blood Simple is a bit like a horror film interlaced with a film noir backdrop..." — rec.arts.movies.reviews
Posted Apr 8, 2003
3.5/4 79% Carlito's Way (1993) rec.arts.movies.reviews
Posted Jan 1, 2000
3/4 78% The Butcher Boy (1997) " Even if it's not as great as the films it rips off, it's gonna be a cult classic nevertheless." — rec.arts.movies.reviews
Posted Jan 1, 2000
4/4 90% The Purple Rose of Cairo (1985) rec.arts.movies.reviews
Posted Jan 1, 2000
2.5/4 52% Mars Attacks! (1996) " Probably the biggest let-down since the second season of Twin Peaks." — rec.arts.movies.reviews
Posted Jan 1, 2000
1/5 20% Jungle 2 Jungle (1997) " The material is so fowl that even a rewrite by Quentin Tarantino couldn't help it." — rec.arts.movies.reviews
Posted Jan 1, 2000
4/4 80% Primary Colors (1998) " To be blunt, Primary Colors is one of the angriest and cynical films about running for political office ever made, but luckily it doesn't allow these two overpowering feelings to crush the film's power as entertainment." — rec.arts.movies.reviews
Posted Jan 1, 2000
3.5/4 85% Rosewood (1997) " The film is totally engrossing, from start to finish, which is a good thing for a two and a half hour long film. In a lesser more preachy film, I would have been looking at my non-existent watch every couple minutes, but the time flew." — rec.arts.movies.reviews
Posted Jan 1, 2000
2.5/4 42% BASEketball (1998) " The chief problem is this film is too much in love with itself, too much in awe at what they can get away with." — rec.arts.movies.reviews
Posted Jan 1, 2000
4/4 97% La Grande illusion (Grand Illusion) (2012) " [A]lways fascinating flick to watch, filled with a great sense of humor that never makes this overly surreal, a dramatic edge which never feels forced, and emotion that never feels hokey or melodramatic." — rec.arts.movies.reviews
Posted Jan 1, 2000
3.5/4 93% Blue Velvet (1986) " I found it to be brilliant and all, but it's just not a film I would watch willingly again." — rec.arts.movies.reviews
Posted Jan 1, 2000
2/4 64% The House of Yes (1997) " Because it doesn't have the guts to go any deeper with the themes and ideas it introduces, it becomes shallow and pretty much redundant." — rec.arts.movies.reviews
Posted Jan 1, 2000
2.5/4 64% Demolition Man (1993) " Let me say, the view of Utopia is nice and all, but it's not nearly negative enough." — rec.arts.movies.reviews
Posted Jan 1, 2000
1/4 25% Earthquake (1974) rec.arts.movies.reviews
Posted Jan 1, 2000

3/4 95% Antz (1998) " The script, although a little too short (bringing the film to about an hour and 20 minutes, more or less), is sharp and witty, and the story really works." — rec.arts.movies.reviews
Posted Jan 1, 2000

4/5 79% Everyone Says I Love You (1996) rec.arts.movies.reviews
Posted Jan 1, 2000

3.5/4 67% Prospero's Books (1991) " It's not concerned with anything but being hypnotic and using film's plastic elements to its extremes, or at least as far as Greenaway can take it." — rec.arts.movies.reviews

3/4 64% The X-Files - Fight the Future (1998) " Successful in two ways: for regular viewers, it whets their appetites to continue watching; for rookies, it just makes them want to watch the show on a regular basis." — rec.arts.movies.reviews
Posted Jan 1, 2000
3.5/4 88% The Spanish Prisoner (1997) " Viewing this film is like viewing two films which work hand in hand: one's an interesting film where we see a working man get the taste of hobnobbing with a rich yet somewhat creepy businessman; the second is like something out of a Kafka story." — rec.arts.movies.reviews
Posted Jan 1, 2000
