Serenity (2005)

"Serenity should not be missed. If you plan on missing it you best get a foot ready, 'cuz you're going to be kicking yourself when you find out what you've been missing." ‐ Juicy Cerebellum

Dead and Breakfast (2005)

"Reminds me of the slightly retarded mutt in a room full of intelligent purebreds. Yes, it may 'sit' when it's told to 'roll over,' but it tries its best to please you." ‐ Juicy Cerebellum

Paura nella città dei morti viventi (City Of The Living Dead) (The Gates of Hell) (1980)

"Drink less [than six beers], you'll be bored with the nonsensical plot. Drink more, you'll probably vomit when you see a girl in the movie literally puke her guts out." ‐ Juicy Cerebellum

The Exorcism of Emily Rose (2005)

Lord of War (2005)
