10/10 75% The Devils (1971) It's an experience which pulsates and perverts, especially in those glorious moments when Russell slaps the sacred directly in its frescoed face... In this brilliant film, nothing is safe: not God, not Satan, not man, not their collective meaning. - PopMatters EDIT

50% Paura nella città dei morti viventi (City Of The Living Dead) (The Gates of Hell) (1980) The gore moments in The City of the Living Dead are like guitar solos in a rock song - the crowd expects them, the material often needs them, and a great artist like Fulci can create the kind that stick with you long after the concert is done and over. - PopMatters EDIT

100% Futurama: Bender's Big Score (2007) Toss in the aliens, the last act space battle, the constant references to other sci-fi signposts, and the solid voice acting, you've got a flawless stand alone package that perfectly preserves everything that made the series a woefully unappreciated gem. - PopMatters EDIT
