Star Trek Into Darkness
As I Lay Dying
Birdemic appears to be completely sincere, an attempt by Nguyen to make a serious and moving work of art. So what if it moves us to tears with laughter?
| Original Score: 5/5
Nguyen's DIY-fingerprints are on every frame. Like The Room, it's the antidote to mass culture -- a singular auteur with a dream.
| Original Score: 3/5
Howlingly bad films are a dime a dozen, but the evident Ed Wood-like sincerity with which writer-director James Nguyen lovingly crafted this compendium of cinematic don'ts gives it a goofy, almost surrealist charm.
so dull, incompetent and ridiculous that it can and will be championed only by a repeat audience of ironists and iconoclasts looking for the next cult film to worship.
Most people will be bored witless with this piece of bird dropping.
| Original Score: 0.5/5
As a movie on its own, Birdemic is a mind-numbingly tedious experience, and not really deserving of the fervent following it's built up.
| Original Score: 1/5
Birdemic defies traditional criticism. It's awful, but isn't that the point?
| Original Score: 1.4/4
Birdemic, which literally has no ending, is actually two totally different movies, linked mostly by their complete, hilarious crapitude.
| Original Score: 0/5
Then there's the acting, uniformly delivered with the flatness of someone who's taken a handful of anti-psychotic medication.
| Original Score: 0/4
Question: What's the difference between "Birdemic" and bird droppings? No one asks you to pay for the latter (yet).
| Original Score: F
Leading lady Whitney Moore gets no points for charisma, but there's compensation in co-star Alan Bagh, who's like a numb John Krasinski.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
It's a shame that Mystery Science Theater 3000 isn't around anymore to provide real context for what is at times a jaw-dropping wonder of clumsiness and banality.
| Original Score: C-
Bird-brained thriller sets a new standard for zero-budget hilarity
| Original Score: 1/4
