Godzilla (1998)

"It's a horrendously long, poorly acted, unoriginal piece of crap that made me sad to be a Japanese-American." rec.arts.movies.reviews

Can't Hardly Wait (1998)

"Can't Hardly Wait offers nothing that its predecessors hasn't, but has possibly broken new ground in terms of underage drinking and teen sex." rec.arts.movies.reviews

The World Is Not Enough (1999)

Hard Rain (1997)

Spice World (1998)

Dark City (1998)

"Writer/Director Alex Proyas needs to stop it with the writing and concentrate on making the pretty. He needs to find a good script and just direct it." rec.arts.movies.reviews

Armageddon (1998)

"That said, Armageddon is still good. Well, maybe good isn't the right word. It is very entertaining and even features (gulp) a female in a sort of important role." rec.arts.movies.reviews

The Bucket List (2007)

"It's like a cross between My Name Is Earl and The Amazing Race, only with two guys dying from cancer. And without the soul, heart, or brains." Planet Sick-Boy

Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street (2007)

"Two hours of singing is going to bore the pants off of gore-starved viewers, and the last-reel gore is going to scare the pants of the foofy Broadway types. And that means a theatre full of people without pants." Planet Sick-Boy

The Darjeeling Limited (2007)

"Everyone who pretended to love Aquatic because they were afraid of hopping off the Anderson bandwagon because deep down they hoped it was just a little career hiccup? Don't lock your knees when you jump because you'll wreck 'em." Planet Sick-Boy
