Titan A.E.
Titan A.E.(2000)

desipite being a bit of a bi-polar film in terms of voice and animation (example being the awkward and a bit unnecessary mix of CGI and traditional animation that serves to date the film), its still comes out as a fine work of art

S. Darko: A Donnie Darko Tale

I tried not to be too prejudicial or harsh on this film, but yeah, this film falls waaaay too flat. It has all of the style, but none of the substance of the original film, coming off as a fan-film by a starrey-eyed ametuer who has all the admiration, but none of the understanding of richard kelley's work. I can admit, that there were some parts that I found good, and the soundtrack is great, but ulitmately, the film could have used some originality by just ditching entirely the time travel and rabbit and Donnie Darko copies, and making Samantha her own character instaed of just a pale copy of her brother. Or just creating new and original characters. Or having characters with ANY sort of redeeming interest at all. Or by just not making the film period. This film is bascily a dime-store rush-produced empy copy of the original, nothing more.

Pink Flamingos

ever see a trainwreck?

Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen

ugh. I tried to enjoy this movie, but I just couldnt. lets see, I had to put up with Shia's "acting", constant rotating crane shots that made me dizzy, horribly written lines, the onslaught of shallow blonde tan-skinned whores, the worst racial stereotyping Ive seen since Phantom Menace, and action scenes that just ending up becoming more boring and comical than interesting. Granted, I liked that there was more dialoug between the robots, and Shia and Megan have at least SOME chemistry, but ultimatly, this is a film written by idiot high school sophomores, for immature men-children who never matured into proper adulthood.

Death to Smoochy

think network, but with the dark underbelly of childrens programing instead of news... not without its flaws, but still a better than average film

The Doom Generation

it could have been a great film cult film for a generation, but a disjointed ending just ends up leaving it a little flat

Lost Highway
Lost Highway(1997)

one of david lynch's more abstract films (which is really saying something), and not entirely perfect, and not something that everyone will entirely "get"... but still has a great atmospheric feel to it that makes for a fine abient noir... Lynch definitly steps a bit out of his comfort zone with some new styles, and not all of them pay off... but I would call it a film for its time

The Goonies
The Goonies(1985)

yes, the constantly screaming kids get annoying fast, but its stil a great fun young at heart adventure

The Queen
The Queen(2006)

a great film, less a documentary about a period of pop-culture history, and more a film about dealing with a death in the family, coping with grief, and uncertainty in changing times.


a bit of an experimental film from scorsese... a bit out of his element, he expirements with some new techniques that vary in success....mostly it felt a bit disorganized and muddled.... not a great fulm, but a good film

The Good Son
The Good Son(1993)

a very weird film and uncomfortable to watch, but still a very disturbing suspense film

Pirates of the Caribbean: At Worlds End

not exactly high brow entertainment, not nearly the grand epic that its advertised as, and not without its flaws, but still good fun and ends up being the better of the three films... and Depp still steals the show

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest

stunning visual effects, but seems a bit superflous in respect to the folliwng movie

Terminator Salvation

its not too terrible of a movie... and the plot/writing is good, but the directing is so muddled, its hard to keep track, or interest of the story. It doesnt really good enjoyable until at the end... but good look making it that far in. At the end, it feels like less of the epic movie it was meant to have been, and more like an extended TV episode/movie.

Batman Returns

granted, Blockbuster films are not Tim Burton's Forte', but this time around we have a vision that is truely Tim Burton's. Its a little different, takes some getting used to, and there's still some studio influence (not to mention the negative legacy of the Shumaker work that followed), but still ends up a story that is crafted as an fantasy film done as a blockbuster

The Muppet Movie

a fine slice of late 70s/early 80s pop culture, with fun celebrity cameos, cheesy jokes that cant help but be laughed at, and a truely beautiful score from Paul Williams

Star Trek
Star Trek(2009)

of course I could nit-pick it to death, point out all the logical cannon errors, things I would have done differently, alien cultures I would have like to have seen more of, or even point out that this isnt the first time we've seen a star trek enemy travel back in time to wreak havoc against their foes in the past in retaliation of some great tragedy, resulting in changes in the timeline and a hipper, cooler stark trek (*cough-cough* ENTERPRISE),,, But at the end of the film, what we have left is still a enjoyable, if not a bit shallow of a film that still, for all its new "x-treme" enhancements, still follows more or less the same formula as the last 10 films. And I am glad that Cardassia got named dropped in there... Now, id like to see what they do with this new "ultimate" star trek...

Earth (Disneynature's Earth) (Planet Earth)

while the structre is a little muddled, its still a beautfiuly done work of documentary art with spirited narration from James Earl Jones that pays homage to the old Disney nature films of the 50s

The Birth of a Nation

Given its content, it is highly difficult to have an objective opinion of this film (probably because the film has no objectivity of its own.) While it stands as a masterpiece of silent acting and storytelling, by todays standards it is clearly melodramatic and racist. But, in trying to judge it in terms of its day, I decide to see it more as a critique of war, and the dangers of extremisim on either side... and to its credit, I find it less hateful than it is a honest but naive attempt at reconciliation and a desire for peace... unfortunatly it ends up getting lost in its sympathies of the white south way of life

Strange Brew
Strange Brew(1983)

just great, strange, surreal, silly fun. Yes, the two are fish out of their element starring in their own film, but that's what so funny about it, and the play the joke to its limit

X-Men Origins - Wolverine

I found this one a worthy addition to the X-Men franchise. Sabretooth is portrayed flawlessly, while Deadpool, while not quite the same from the books, is adapted well enough.A little formulatic perhaps, but I gotta admit, its a good formula

The Muppets Take Manhattan

an adorable little slice of 1980s new york that isnt too dated, and also serves as a slight satire of the entertainment industry of the day. A little cornball perhaps, and not perfect, but is still far more visionary than most work done today

Observe and Report

of course there are several things I would have done differently, and the ending wasnt what I would have liked, but we still have a delightfuly black comedy featuring a clearly psychotic lead, and a halarious satire of Christopher Nolan's style, and its a plasure to see a comedy that can be a little sophomoric but still straight faced and doesnt talk down to the audience like they're a bunch of immature idiots that can only laugh at a 1-D fart joke

The Ice Harvest

this film was terrible,... I dont know where they thought it was set in, but it sure as hell wasnt WICHITA.

Hunt for the BTK Killer

anyone who has actualy LIVED in Wichita will know what a crock of shit this movie is. Bascily, its just formulatic made-for-tv sensationalist tripe with cookie-cutter one-diminsional characters. For the love of god, HE KILLS A PUPPY! The film makes NO effort to genuinely understand either the case-solving process, or the psychologicy of the killer beyond "he's just a bad bad bad bad man!"


Brian Cox is no Anthony Hopkins, but despite being plauged by cheesey 1980s anachronisims, and the fact of my mind not wanting to stop comparing it to red dragon, it works as a fine thriller in its own right, focusing more on the plot than on the characters (as opposed to Red Dragon, which was more character driven than plot driven)


maybe a little corny, but still charming and fun to watch

The Right Stuff

a little on the long side, and a bit too heavy handed in its criticisms of the press, but still delivers several memorable performances and scenes


heavy handed, and a tad imbalanced, but still bitterly bleak, and a darkly prophetic of the world of network news to come.

Cape Fear
Cape Fear(1991)

a bit experimental by Scorsese's standards, but still comes off well as a powerful revenge-psychological thriller about the wrath of ghosts from the past... DeNerio is absolute slime as Cady, and Nolte pulls off the jittery paranoia well


a bleak and depressing anti-comedy (typical of Solondz) which is depressing and a bit uncomfortable to watch (typical of Solondz) but still gets its point across in a tragicaly beautiful way (typical of Solondz)

Good Night, And Good Luck

a little heavy-handed at times... ultimately, its the performances that drive this film.

Rocky Balboa
Rocky Balboa(2006)

stripping away all the bombastic americana of the earlier films, all that's left is a look at the characters, and their fights against the ghosts of the past, and uncertainty of the future. And instead of an attempt to cash in on the franchise, what we have here is more of a fitting farewell to the characters and touching tribute to the 1st film


despite what the ad blitz will have you believe, Zack Snyder is NOT a visionary director. He's a commercial director. He makes films to fill theatres and turn a profit. But it doesnt necessarily mean that he's bad at what he does.

The film, like Rorsach's mask, is a constantly shifting thing. It takes a while to find its feet... and when it clicks, it clicks well. And of course, it was a difficult task up front, condensing the vast and mulit-layered book into a 2 1/2 hour movie. There are times when Zack pulls it off well (Dr. Manhattan's and Roarsach's origins mostly, even if it is layed on a little thick at times), and times when the ball gets dropped completely (Silk Spectre is deflated into nothing more than a talking head, and Ozymandias is a little too cold hearted for his own good). Of course, it could have been better, and it could have been worse. There were some understandable difference between the book and film - some things were taken out that were vital to the point of the book, and there were some additions to the film that were interesting enough.

Watchmen the book is a subtle masterpiece, and deserved better than to be made into a flashy testosterone sex-and-music-and-violence "MTV Movie", but I am glad that it was true to the general spirit of the book, and did not pull too many punches thematicly, and didnt comprimise where it mattered. I would have much rather seen another direct it (a director that is actualy visionary), Oliver Stone or Sam Mendes comes directly to mind. And it would have been better as a 12 part miniseries on HBO than a 2 hour abridged summary. But in the end- It aint the Dark Knight, but it aint Batman and Robin either. And ultimatly, it is worth the price of a movie ticket, and maybe the DVD.


an amazing and brutal tour de force, with a wonderful happy ending to it

OSS 117: Le Caire Nid d'Espions (OSS 117: Cairo, Nest of Spies)

Imagine James Bond meets Inspector Cleaseau, as a stereotypical eurotrash frenchman, complete with condenscending attitutes towards forign cultures, and halariously over-the-top chauvinism, make this film one of the best comedies Ive seen in a long time... although alot of the french humour may be lost on american audiences

Pink Panther 2

not especaily intellegent, but still fun enough for some laughs


while the plot and premise is a little flimsy, the film is well acted and directed enough to make it enjoyable enough to watch

Revolutionary Road

a sad, depressing look at the stress and desperation of 1950s suburbia... fine chemestry between Winslett and DiCaprio, but falls a little flat towards the end


bizarre, surreal, nightmarish, and depressing... but still beautiful and escapist in its scope


a fine fairy tale like film that plays to Gaiman's stengths of making the ordinary and mundane extraordinary and magical


a beautiful film that dispells and more or less kills the romantisized mythos of the classic western, while at the same time, reinforces everything that was great about it


a fairly straight foward and somewhat bright (at least by Tod Solondz's standards) story, looking at tales about both the ideas of fiction and non-fiction. Enjoyable, but with enough dark solonz-isims to make it a bit depressing for the unintitated

Slumdog Millionaire

a very well written story filled with great Danny Boyle-isms... while some cultural themes may not connect with the average american movie goer, this does make for a great film... An oscar contender, but not what I would call a oscar winner (and if I really wanted to be nit-picky (slight imbalance between scenes in terms of conveying feeling and themes, a soundtrack that could have been better, and maybe a little too sweet for its own good), I would say that it would have/should have gotten edged out by the seat of its pants.. but in the end one of the best films of 08/09

Superman II
Superman II(2006)

we have a great movie stuggling to break through all the hokey pre-cirsis-isms, and that damn "goofy" luthor, and all that 80s chest hair

The Wrestler
The Wrestler(2008)

its dignity vs. aging in the squared circle in a steel cage match. Mickey Rourke gives the performance of his career as a tarnished angel with a heart of gold, facing down his career vs. his life, and trying to keep both together as they crumble around him. The only real flaw is that Rourke creates a character that is so likeable, the audience demands a happy ending where everything pans out and that the hero lives hapily ever after. That, and Kurdt Cobain was not a pussy, and the 90s didnt suck =p

Southland Tales

an interesting film, with all sorts of beautiful richard kelly trademarks.. BUT... just what the hell is this film supposed to be about?!?!?! That, and the comedian-heavy cast just seems odd.

Justice League: The New Frontier

one of the better direct to video animated DC films, this one holds true to Cooke's vision, and makes for an entertaining and stylish, if not a bit simple, watch


yes, it is filled with all sorts of 1980s anachronisms that seem silly by todays standards, but at its core lies a solid heart-felt story about the new generation vs. the old, and finding comprimise and understanding between the two

Wild Wild World of Batwoman

yes, it is wild... and dare I say a hoot to watch, but dear lord, this film is just far too weird and bizarre to take seriously

Gran Torino
Gran Torino(2009)

an amazingly powerful urban western... Not just an angry old man at war with the modern world, instead we have a touchingly beautiful look at not just relationships between cultures (while the casual viewer may see Eastwood's bitter lonely old man as a bit of a racist, but he never dishes out more than he's willing to take in return, thus fostering a bit of a unique mutual respect), but also between generations of the old and the young, and a tale of the triumph of dignity, self-reliance, and finding (or re-finding) the respect of self and community without kissing ass or comprimise, and standing up for yourself.

Superman: Doomsday

the character designs might be a little off, but at its core is a wonderully written homage to the Jurgen's era superman. The included Death and return of superman Documentary makes it worth the watch really more than the feature though


take a good film-noir film, and recast it in a high school scenario, and you have brick. Whie granted, it does streatch creditbility at times, it ends up working and working well, thanks to the brilliant performance of the actors and work of the director


an amazing film, filed with amazing performances all around. The brilliance in this film, that instead of obvious accusations, things gravitate towards subtle insinuations, without any clear confessions or concrete proof given, leaving the audience to share the doubts of the characters, and come to their own conclusions, which may not be a clear cut as one would think

Fur: An Imaginary Portrait of Diane Arbus

yes, its an imaginary portrate.... but if its going to be an imaginary portrate, then why not just use imaginary characters instead of diane arbus? The film instead of shedding insight on the artist and her works and character, ends up just as another typical a-typical love triangle story with generic un-generic characters

The Spirit
The Spirit(2008)

imagine, if you will, the most unsublte death-metal band covering the most subtle blue-jazz songs, and you have something like the spirit.

I'm still trying wrap my head around the spirit... and I can't figure it out. Once again, miller is either a lunatic or a genuis, and I don't know which one. Imagine tarentino (or a manic depressive schizophrenis who watched grindhouse too many times) trying to write an episode of adam west's batman... its either a brilliant twisted parody of the old film noir genre, or the horrible insulting rape of will eisner's child. And right when miller stretches credibility to its absolute furthest breaking point... he snaps you back to reality and puts it all back into its right perspective (as one character remarks, "I just do this because I get paid, I look damn good doing it, and its fun")

Yes, there are some genuine moments of will eisner-isims that hold true to the original books, but they are too few and far between the typical miller-isms of unbelievably strange non sensicle dialogs, monologs, and crazy dames and broads.

And I don't know WHAT the hell was the deal with jackson. That's another part that blew my mind.

Its like a bad movie, that was intellegently written acted and directed to BE crazy and strange and have a multiple personality. I recomend seeing it, mostly because it defies description, and can only really be experienced.

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button

a stunningly tragic beautiful look at life, and living, told with the magic of an intellegent fairy tale... although Balnchett's accent could use some work...


despite reeking of disney sacchrine, its still more creative, experimental, and intellegent than the average disnar/pixny fare, and has enough of a cynical bite to offset the sugary disney flavour, as well as some genuinely moving sentiment

The Day the Earth Stood Still

while stylishly directed, in the end, the dialog contains too many cornball generalisms and simplisms, vauge characters that change without any real explination, and in the end, nothing really gets resolved.

Punisher: War Zone

as with the last film, they do the best they have with what they got... but what they got aint that good to begin with. The Punisher's main flaw is that he's so one-diminsional- he kills people not to be heroic, but because he hates them. And that makes him more interesting as an antognist than as a protagonist or as a leading man. But, they do manage to defy the odds and bring SOME depth and character to the performance and plot (even if the ending is a bit of a cop-out no pun intended)- but yes, hidden underneat the blood and gore shock-fest is a somewhat interesting film... it aint the Dark Knight (the joker's pencil trick is FAR better than Frank's pencil trick), but it aint quite ghost rider or daredevil either. Dont go expecting to see Frank as part of the Avengers initiatve.

Battlefield Earth

yeah.... good for a few laughs, but ultimately, a combination of a hole-filled plot that streatches suspension of disbelief to its absolute extreme, horrible cinimatography, laughable dialog, and hammy acting from just about everyone with screentime (especialy travolta)makes this film definitly deserve its reputation as a major turkey


Instead of just doing a western film, a war film, a romance film, or a cultural identity film, what he have here is a gross amalgamation of all four, resulting in a film that seems a bit too crammed and self-important for its own good- not to say that its a bad film, since it is filled with many compelling performances... but could definitly do with some editing and streamlining into something a bit more managable

The Boy in the Striped Pajamas (The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas)

a beautifuly tragic film that paints a full 3 dimensional portrate of life on both sides of the fence, without whitewashing or over-villainizing either side


a bit lengthy, but Downey Jr gives the definitve performance of his career in this almost-masterpiece that evokes tremendous (but sometimes heavy-handed) sympathy for the little Tramp. Geraldine Chaplin's performance of her insnae grandmother is also noteworthy as well

Rachel Getting Married

a little sluggish and plodding in some parts- but when it finaly gets to the point of the story, its a powerful story of self-loathing, forgiveness, and family

Quantum of Solace

a satisfying spy action/suspense thriller that brings back the style and substance of casino royale


silly non-sensiscal formulatic summer action movie drivel. Keanu Reeves plays Keanu Reeves, Dennis Hopper Plays Dennis Hopper, and Sandra Bullock plays Sandra Bullock. But what it lacks in substance (and logic, and dialog), it does make up with style and tense action seens

City of Ember

a beautiful and fun adventure film filled with all sorts of wonderful dystopian steampunk art-deco scenary, and a better tween film than any high school musical. Granted, it is a little light on the action and suspense, and fairly straightforward, and I would have liked a little more backstory as to the origins of earth's plight.... but hell, its nice to be able to kick back and enjoy something light once and a while


Oliver Stone is back in classic form, painting a picture not of an evil war monger, but of a sad, incompetant, irresponsible, immature man-child lost in himself and his desire to outdo his old-man and prove to himself and other's that he's a big boy. Unfortunatly, the voices of fear and insecurity in himself and those of opportunism and (for lack of better term) ass-kissing and manipulation drown out any voices of reason and justice. Its not a pleasant topic, and its far from perfect, but it was an important film to have been made, to remind future generations of america's great shame and most embarrassing and pathetic era.

several classic Stone-isms and trademarks return after what feels like a several year-long hiatus, and the whole cast delivers a strong perforamce, even if its odd hearing GHWB with a british accent...


a great western genre film exploring themes of loyalty and friendship more than law and justice

Friday the 13th

meh. slow, plodding plot that doesnt really go anywhere, and not enough lighting just makes it look like a flashlight bouncing around everywhere.


The film creates a portrate of a pathetic, self-loathing creature, but brings the pathos to make him sympathetic and likable. Bravo!

Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery

Mike Myers always was, and always will be, a one trick pony, riding out the same set of jokes for all of his career. The only difference being the setting that the jokes take place in. As far as this premise, it had promise, but got old REAL fast. Elizabeth Hurley does her best though to salvage Meyer's boring old routine as a great straight-woman

Dirty Dancing

Cheesy, sentimental, and a soundtrack that's not quite sure of which period it's supposed to be in, but still has enough heart and soul to make this film worth a watch

Burn After Reading

instead of being the black spy comedy it was advertised as, instead we have a dreary depressing film filled with unlikeable unsympathetic characters, and no plot resolution.

The People Vs. Larry Flynt

a great spotlight Milos Forman 's skill at bringing beauty and pathos to even the most annoying and unlikable characters. But the end of the film, you cant help but applaud for the poor crazy slob, and feel sorry for his strung-out junkie wife

Star Wars: The Clone Wars

kinda bland and lackluster, but still has much fewer plot holes , painful dialog, and bad acting than your average star wars films, And Im sure this film would be MUCH more enjoyable without the CGI, which just looks wrong... WHY THE HELL CANT WE HAVE REAL FEATURE-LENGTH FILMS with REAL ANIMATION?

Tropic Thunder

Think Three Amigos meets Apocalypse Now- a halariously scathing Satire of not only war films, but the whole hollywood system. Not without its flaws, but still a film worth seeing for some good laughs

The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor

not quite perfect, not without its flaws, not quite Indiana Jones (and brendon frasier is still WAY too young to be a father of a college student), but still has enough fun and charm to make it a hokey but enjoyable adventure romp

Batman & Robin

with an entirely different franchise (or entirely original characters other than Batman) this could have been a halfway decent comedy... but with its moments of heavy-handed melodrama, a god-aweful script filled with terrible puns, Alicia Silverstone's "acting" and countless plot holes and plot devices, this film ends up more like a bad parody of the old Adam West Batman rather than an homage. But, to its credit, Uma Thurman does have fun and play the crazy bitch character role to the hilt, and for the most part, tries not to take its self too seriously. But dont expect anything resembling subtilty from a joel schumaker film

Olympia 2. Teil - Fest der Schönheit

not quite as evil or as pro-nazi as most people would suspect.... facism and racism take a far backseat, if that, to the pagentry of the games, and the unifying sportmanship and spirt of the olympics. Definitly a film ahead of its time, and proves that even Ol' Adolph can smile and enjoy a simple sports game, even if it is featuring an african american athelete

The Hudsucker Proxy

it is a little heavy handed in its anti-corporate message, but remains a fun surreal fairy-tale type story

Gonzo: The Life and Work of Hunter S. Thompson

a good indepth look at the good doctor's carreer from the 60s-70s, but then just skims through the 80s 90s and 00s and throws us straight to the suicide, not really offering any new insights as to what brought on the suicide. But still is a great primer for those new to the Gonzo

Batman Begins

this film prooves that Christopher Nolan can take a formulatic summer blockbuster, work within the hollywood system, and still be able to produce a work of art with its own rhythem and poetry to it. Yes, there are some silly capricious hollywood-isms in the film, and yes, Katie Holmes does distract a bit, but in the end, its still remains a work of beuty, with occaisional fun silliness. And only gives just a taste of where it leads to with the dark knight, with this being the brighter (what with all the warm yellow filters) and more fun/optimistic flipside to the disturbing brutality of dark knight

Total Recall
Total Recall(1990)

in the hands of a better cast and better directer, this could have been much better. But with Ahnold accent and Veerhoven's over-the-top violence, sex, and overall weirdness, just kinda make the film alternately silly and disturbing

The Dark Knight

dark, gripping, intense, disturbing, brutal. This is a film that stays with you long after its over, and is truely horrific and unsettling. Ledger gives an absolutly memorable and unforgettable performance. Quite possibly one of the best films Ive seen this DECADE.

Hellboy II: The Golden Army (Hellboy 2)

a great follow up from the original... although this one has more of the fairytale vision of Del Toro that it did the occult vision of Mignola featured in the 1st film- however, the two visions end up complimenting each other perfectly


yes, there's all sorts of cheesy formulatic Michael Bay exaggerated fate of the world crap in there and melodramitc pro-america mumbo-jumbo... but the film is somewhat enjoyable, if only Shia would just SHUT THE HELL UP for 5 seconds and let us try and enjoy the film


Aa powerful film about a bygone era where the terrorist enemies of america were crazy right wing americans instead of crazy terrorists..., if you have the stanima and/or attention span to keep track of all the side plots and tangents- combines the best qualities of political thriller murder mystery, and personal obcession films- Of course the same story could be told in almost half the time, and it does border on pretentiousness, but still an important, well done film that is worth the time

Star Wars: Holiday Special

Ive had root canals more enjoyable than watching this. Low budget, sloppy production, and a clear case of trying to cash in on a (then) temporary fad. Although, Im starting to get halarious images of Lucas remaking this one and re-releasing it, with the remake featuring a singing and tap-dancing Darth Sidious number

Futurama: Bender's Big Score

everything that was great about Futurama, wrapped up in a nice little package- a bit disorganized perhaps, but still full of all the bizarre humour and hearbreaking pathos that made the series great


what should have been a delightfuly sociopathic film about supervillains that have conquored the world and use it as their own playground, instead is some 3rd rate revenge/violence fantasy about a typical ancient "guild of assassins" who take their orders from a sewing machine (that's right, a goddamned sewing machine). Macavoy brings some entertaining moments as a frustrated office worker, but ultimately, this film ends up being something like a retarded down's syndrome prodcut of a union of fight club and matrix. rediculous nonsense, with too many slow-motion shots, and non-sense violence.

Get Smart
Get Smart(2008)

steve carrell manages to pull off being goofy and sympathetic without looking incompetant and stupid. More of an action comedy rather than a slapstick spoof, which makes it all the better

The Incredible Hulk

marvel finaly got its "HULK SMASH" movie... and its not so bad.... yes, there's room for improvement (and I dont care what anyone else says, I STILL liked the 1st one a bit better), and with definite homages to the TV show... but compared with the 1st one, Banner is more interesting, and Hulk is less interesting

Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed

Oh Ben Stein, what happened to you? You used to be such a great and entertaining personality before you became such an ignorant backwards thinking anti-seccular biggoted propagandist. It makes me cry a little on the inside


my all time favorite film, detailing the descent into madness and paranoia that can come from obcession with order and perfection, combined with cripiling lonliness. The soundtrack and the black+white shots only heighten the mood of tension, and in the end, realizes if the cost of absolute knowledge is truely worth the price

Blue Velvet
Blue Velvet(1986)

this is one of those few films I can watch over and over again, and take something new from it- Things that are tremendously beautiful, can be just as vile and dark once the lights go out. Childish naivety can quickly melt away in the face of cold reality, and In every shiney happy town, there are bugs in the grass, but there are birds, to eat those bugs. The sun rises, sets, and rises again. And there are happy endings in the darkest of times


a hauntingly surreal and depressing look at the desperation of modern work-a-day life... the narrator has a few out of character moments when the narration doesnt quite match the character, but Glover is definitly a good fit for the film and Piscipoe is surprisingly good-granted, it might be a bit TOO depressive for the average viewer, but anyone stuck in a cubicle on a daily basis will relate to the film

Office Space
Office Space(1999)

overrated... mike judge is a much better animater than a live action director

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

FAR exceeded my expectations- Ol Indy is back, even though he is a bit of an anachronism- in the first minutes of the film, he has to contend with commies, rockets, area 51 spooks, nuclear weapons, FBI agents, Greasers, and McCarthyists. Cate Blanchett is dead sexy and ice cold. Granted, when compared with Ford still (appearing to) do his own stunts, Shia's computer generated scenes look a bit out of place (and even get to be a little distracting at times), But ultimately, all the fun of the originals are still there. Indy is getting old, but he's still the same old Indiana


you know, everyone always makes fun of this film, saying that its bad, terrible, and ya know, this is one of those times where everyone is right. Man, oh man, where to begin? Horrible, horrible acting (which isnt saying much, given the characters are flat-out unlikable), bland plot that has been done dozens of times a dozen times better, horrible fake "sex", a film that runs far too long, but to its credit, the soundtrack did have a few surprises, and there were at least SOME characters that had some likability (not much, but it was there). But yes, this is one of those few films that requires a shower after viewing.

Speed Racer
Speed Racer(2008)

silly, rediculous non-sensical j-pop eye candy designed to inflict ADD. The anti-corporate message is a little shallow, but John Goodman still delivers a strong performance, and Christina Ricci is still a doll. All in all a fun time-waster that can be just a bit too silly for its own good

First Blood
First Blood(1982)

deeper than your typical action film (which really isnt saying much)- Rambo dont talk much, but when he does, what he says is worth listening to. One might even say that this is one of those few films thats capable of being both underrated AND overrated.

Iron Man
Iron Man(2008)

the typical hero-origin formula, but this time done right, with believable and engaging characters, and a plot with a good sense of pacing that isnt too fast or too slow, and effects that dont give you a headache

The Band's Visit

a little on the dry/depressing side, but still a well done film with some beautiful compositions, and a great human-story

The Truman Show

aside from some structure problems, this film presents a beautifuly surreal fairy tale about a man stuck in a world and is trying to escape. Unfortunatly, god has other plans, and wants to keep him in this shell of a world, for entertainment of the masses. Jim Carey is great, but its Ed Harris as the producer with a god complex that steals the show

American Dreamz

one of the most clever and biting satires Ive ever seen... truely, A film for its times with a good message without being too heavy handed or preachy


ARRGH!! stoopid movie make Hulk think! Believable sympathic characters and innovative camera work make Hulk's head hurt! And CGI was too good for Hulk smashing. Why cant moovie be dumb like Ghost Rider? Then Hulk will like this film.

The Forbidden Kingdom

Wizard of Oz meets Crouching Tiger/Hidden Dragon- a very beautiful and fun fantasy coming-of-age story

Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem (AVP 2)

what could have been a great film is otherwise ruined by awkward dialog, thin hole-filled plot, and bland characters and acting


a shallow little tech-sploitation film that is light on substance and heavy on style- a good ambiant film as long as you're not using your brains

Nine Inch Nails: Closure

this one sets the bar in music video compliations and concert films, flawless blending backstage behind the scenes documentry with live performances

Shine a Light

not especialy groundbreaking, but is still a lot of fun to watch, and ol' Martin does a great job of showing that the Stones can still bring the same energy to their perfomances that they did in the 60s, as well as making the audience feel his enthusiam for their work. Im not that big a fan of the stones, but even I felt compelled to applaud after the songs, and get up and bounce around to the show.

Mortal Kombat: Annihilation

laughably bad "special effects", poorly coreographed "fight scenes", and an empty plot make this a great comedy film, but a terrible sci-fi/action film

Dr. Seuss' Horton Hears a Who!

a stressed out everyman one day suddenly hears the voice of god. Too bad the voice of god is the village idiot. One might say that this would be a piece of republican propaganda stressing about the evils of athiesim, but I would say that we're overcomplicating a simple story about how a little imagination is nothing to be afraid of. The movie though did have some beautiful bits of artwork, and I liked the concilitory ending of it all. But sadly, this is the best Seuss adaptation that has been done (which isnt saying much)

Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves

not without its flaws, and maybe they could/should have casted someone other than Costner, and it DID inspire one of the worst Bryan Adams songs ever... but its still a great fun period film, with beautiful scenes of England and thrilling action shots

In Bruges
In Bruges(2008)

Not quite the mad-cap wacky crime-escapade it was advertised as in trailers, this film is more a tragic human drama about repetance, honor, guilt, and justice (actual justice vs. petty revenge)- but it still does have some dark comedy in there too.

The Wizard
The Wizard(1989)

yes, it does require a bit of suspension of disbelif, but its still such a fun tweenie road-trip movie that brings back some good memories for me... and still has more heart and substance than most of the manufactured crap out there today. That, and its just so funny to see how dated it has become

Be Kind Rewind

its a little light on substance, and jack black is jack black (depending on your taste, that can be a good or bad thing)- but its still a fun film to see

The Kite Runner

such an incredibly sad and tragic movie... but one with a happy ending that isnt too sappy.

Falling Down
Falling Down(1993)

a bitter misanthropic film for bitter misanthropic people... in the hands of a better director, this could have been a flawless classic, but even with Schumaker behind the camera, it still remains a challenging and thought-provoking film with great themes, and challenging notions of social decay, personal bitterness, and the struggle to find order in a dark world without going dark yourself

Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom

I remember seeing this one when I was young, and it scaring the crap out of me.... perhaps it did bias me for life against Indian culture and hysterical blondes, but it remains a landmark thrill/horror movie

Raiders of the Lost Ark

maybe a little over-rated.... Not as good as the other two films (by todays standards, Im sure its a little cliche'd), but is still a fine, well done film... it just doesnt click with me as well as the other two did.


faithful to the book with a few ommissions/additions.... beautifuly animated and told, with a great mixture of dark murky backgrounds and light spirited characters/dialog... it does show that while Iran might be a bearable place to live, no one in their right mind would ever want to (or should) live there


truely, a haunting masterpiece, wonderfuly demonstrating the private madness and public paranoia of murder in a city

Blade Runner
Blade Runner(1982)

dark and moody, its a great textbook film on how to do not only science fiction, but also film noir


this movie gives a good strong case in the favour of flixster allowing no-star ratings. this film is irredeemable.


clever dialog, compelling acting, and great scene composition... has all the ingrediants for a candidate for best film of 2007

Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street

Im not a big fan of musicaly, but dark and twisted enough to be entertaing, with enough Pathos and character to keep it from being just a novelty product. Also of note, this film has the fakest blood Ive ever seen in a movie, but then again, the red latex paint-looking liquid definitly adds to the atmosphere, being the only bright colours in dark moody victorian london.

I Am Legend
I Am Legend(2007)

a very dark, brooding, and haunting film. Intense, but not overaly brutal. It has a subtle beauty to it that builds to the tension and isolation experienced by the character... at least until the end, which is a total anticlimatic cop-out compared to the original tone and ending of the book, almost ruining the original paranoia and tension built on at the start... ALMOST.

Eastern Promises

an amazing film with powerful and riviting performances... although the ending does leave a whole lot of unresolved plot threads and unanswered questions, it does serve as a great metaphor for promises of a future, or a better life... both fullfilled and unfullfilled.

Reno 911!: Miami

its the TV series- brought to the big screen. Some laugh-out-loud moments with typical reno 911!-style humour, but may not be enjoyable for those who arent aready fans of the show


a little complex, but still one of the better films Ive seen in 2007- made me think of Neil Gaiman's Sandman, but set in Tokoyo with Anime chicks

A Christmas Story

THE definitive holiday movie- sentimental, clever and edgey without being unnecessairly over-the-top, and something everyone of all ages can relate to

The Golden Compass

this film was beautiful.... it almost made me cry a little on the inside, like living a whole life in a city of strangers, and finaly seeing a familiar face you could relate to, and understood the cultural isolation you felt, and wanted to help others feeling the same way. Truely a step in the right direction.


not outright terrible, but not entrely outstanding either... Granted, it is a visualy stunning film with some beautiful scenery and high paced exciting action scenes, but then again, if you're going to do animation so life-like that it could be confused for live-action, then whats the point in doing animation in the 1st place?


a typical video game action film with a thin plot full of holes, but done with such a straight-forward unpretentious performance, it ends up being entertaining... as long as you are not using your brain.

Batman - Return to the Batcave

an halariously original take on the typical "true life behind the scenes movie of the week" genre, with great performances in the flashbacks, as well as laugh-out-lound deadpan performances from Burt, Adam, AND Frank


love stories like these are few and far between


the best Kevin Smith film, and dare I say, the only real good one aside from Clerks.... and that's saying something, given how much I friggin' HATE that untalented self-obcessed pretentious hack

Pan's Labyrinth

one best film of 2007 so far. its beautiful... the only real complaint I would have, is that we dont really understand the motives of the "heros" or "villains"... yes, they have choices and no choices, but I failed to understand extactly what they were fighting for, or why... then again, I dont have many cultural ties to spain, so Im sure Im missing out there. but when viewed as a fairy tale with classic themes in a specific context (wicked step-father, temptation, happy endings, etc), its a triumph. as a political moral tale, not so much.

Elizabeth: The Golden Age

an absolutly stunning performance from Cate Blanchet as a character who is compellled to mercy and devotion to her people, but also driven by duty and obligation to a life of lonliness and paranoia... not without its flaws, but still one of the best films of the year

Plan 9 from Outer Space

laughably bad, but still has more honesty and heart and soul in it than any modern day michael bay film

The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford

a well done picture that makes everyone look more sympathetic and less cowardly... keep your eyes pealed for a cameo by Nick Cave

Army of Darkness

halariously absurd fun! Ash fights off a legion of undead three stooges!

Superman: Brainiac Attacks

an otherwise fine adaption of the animated series, ruined by a poorly written and grossly out of character Brainiac and Luthor

The Naked Gun 33 1/3: The Final Insult

not as good or clever as the previous two, but still a fitting finale to the "trilogy"- keep a look out for a halarious cameo by Marc Alaimo!

The Notorious Bettie Page

the colour transitions between scenes were GREAT


granted, it takes several creative liberties from the comics, but its still well executed, and makes for an entertaining movie. The performances of Lucifer and Gabriel really do make this movie.

Marie Antoinette

a well directed and acted film, although the end scenes were a little rushed...


this is actualy the same film as Alien: Resurrection, simply recast, and a few plot-points changed.

Alien Resurrection

believe it or not, this is actualy the same film as serenity!

Phantom Of The Opera

a masterpiece... best seen with live accompaning organ.... this is as good as film horror gets

Wild Palms
Wild Palms(1993)

a little too complex for its own good at times, but still a worthwhile watch

Lost In Translation

a well done film that shows just how lonely and isolating cultural shock can be, and how one can find solice in opposites, although, I did kinda feel like the pace was a little directionless... kinda meandered around without any real destination at times

Repo Man
Repo Man(1984)

hey man, wanna go for a ride?

Death Proof
Death Proof(2007)

even though you do have to sit through about an hour or so of Tarantino's talking heads, the last hours of this film is AMAZING edge of your seat suspence

Stranger Than Fiction

do paraphrase Dustin Hoffman's character in the film : "Good... not perfect, but still very good"

Star Wars: Empire of Dreams

nothing really special or worth getting, unless you're of the fanboy pursusasion...

It Could Happen to You

typical romantic comedy. not terrible, not special.

Private Parts

not quite as trashy, or as deep, as you would expect. An average afternoon film (with some funny bits with Paul Giamatti) worth seeing if there's nothing else on TV at the moment

The Majestic
The Majestic(2001)

a nostalgic romantic film for romantic film nostalgics


frighteningly real in its depiction of white trash life in a white trash town. The scariest bit of all, is that people like those in the movie DO exist

Grey Gardens
Grey Gardens(1975)

a nice place (and people) to visit, but I dont think Id want to live there...

All the Real Girls

its beauty lies in its simplicity- just a simple human drama about the problems of young relationships... well acted, well written, and well directed, if not a little bittersweet

Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children

outsiders may not get into it, but the animation quality is AMAZING

Balls of Fury

absurd, over the top, but done with such a deadpan straight-face, it doesnt feel like you're being talked down to, making it all the more enjoyable.

Mr. Bean's Holiday

not everyone can get past Bean's unintellegible mumbling, but once (and if) you can, its pure physical comedy gold. Its good for Rowan Atkins (and french) fans, but outsiders might get a little bored. Dafoe is also brilliant as the average self-pretentious hack director

Bedknobs and Broomsticks

havnt seen this one since i was a kid, but I remember liking it when I did see it

Song of the South

nowhere near as racist as them P.C. obcessed white folks in suits at disney think it is... its still a charming tale about antebellum southern folklore, with a good message of harmony at the end... also a breakthrough in animation as being one of the first films to combine live action and animation, and has great performances by the cast... granted, it does somewhat romantisize rural southern jim crow life, but nowhere in the movie is anyone talked down to or disrespected based on race. The characters are portrayed as someone multidimensional (or at least as dimensional as a walt disney kids flik can get), and at the end, the white kid and the black kid are smiling, holding hands, and singing along.... and that's what's important.


truely a great movie... perfectly capable of summing up what makes america great and what makes america not-so-great all at once


not entirely bad, but nothing that I could relate to... Im sure the same move was already made with different characters and a different scenario

Walking and Talking

yes, they're walking... and yes, they're talking... they say alot of interesting things, but they're not really walking anywhere... but then aagin, Im a guy, and I couldnt really connect with it

The Nutty Professor

not completely terrible, but does have a tendency to be taken down by "fart jokes"

Anti-Christ Superstar

I presume that this is referring to the music video collection.... which is among the best of them all.


definitly not for the faint of heart... its advertised as a roarsach test for the mind, and certainly doesnt disappoint

3000 Miles to Graceland

this was not the comedy it was advertised as... more like a very dark and disturbing crime heist film, filled with sociopathic elvises


Olver Stone does comedy... with disturbing results... definity has a few good laughs... but the humer is just too dark and disturbing to be called a true comedy, and too light to be called a true thriller... truely a nightmare, but an enjoyable nightmare... just thank providence that you're not in their shoes


an average film... not outright terrible, but Oliver Stone is capable of so much more

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

I liked it... they're strating to get a bit dark though... little harry is starting to grow up, and the heel teachers are no longer simply affably goofy, but downright dispiciple... a great film, but not as fun as the earlier films were

Razdruzene drzave Amerike (Divided States of America)

a well made documentry.... albeit just flat out depressing look at the current american political outlook

Ministry: Tapes of Wrath

a great and COMPELTE collection of ministry videos to date (which is becoming a rarity these days in music video collections)- an essential for any Ministry fan

Addams Family Values

not quite as funny as the 1st film, but still an entertaining time-capsul of early 90s pop culture

The Addams Family

a solid, stylish, and funny time capsule of early 90s pop-culture... and wednsday addams is still teh sex.

Shaun of the Dead

one of the funniest films Ive ever seen, with added emotional and character depth to set apart from the average parody genre

Guns, God and Government World Tour

I was so totaly at the Manson performance in Wichtia Kansas shown in the documentary... I even posted the editorial that he reads on the official Bullitan boards before he played... ITS TRUE!


truely bizarre and abstract film art... this film makes no boasts about making any statements, and leaves it as a roarsach's test for the viewer... but says far more about paranoia and depression than it cares to admit. Definitly not for outsiders, and maybe not even for the "Mansonite" crowd, but still a powerful short film that should not be dismissed as mere novelty or "shock art"

Party Monster

well acted and directed (I LOVED the color scheming), but I just couldnt relate to the characters, or give them any sympathy


a great textbook example of a good fairy tale movie... fun, adventurous, with a happy ending... but not really groundbreaking... good for fans of the genre... that, and seeing Robert DeNerio play gay is worth the ticket price itself

Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure

a most excellent comedy with most excellent one-liners! (also responsible for teaching me some cool stuff about history when I was a kid, silly as it sounds)

Jacob's Ladder

a very dark film with a great ending (and a surprise cameo from Lewis Black, yes, THAT Lewis Black)

High School High

typical "airplane" style comedy... good for a few chuckles, but easily forgettable

A Night in Casablanca

the Marx brothers are a little out of place (and starting to show their age) in an exoctic post-WWII adventure film... but despite a formulatic plot (with a few holes in it) and forced moments, its still full of alot of good laughs

The Transformers - The Movie

liked it as a kid... but watching it now, it's a little cheesy, but not overly terrible

The Adventures of Baron Munchausen

a feast for the senses and imagination

What the Bleep Do We Know!?

this is the worst load of Garbage I ever had to sit through in my life...pseudo-scientology BS disguised as a docu-drama. hours of my life Im never going to hve back.

The Simpsons Movie

same stale jokes, same recycled plots, same overused characters... Homer screws up, AGAIN... Alienates his family, AGAIN... dooms the city, AGAIN... Marge is still a nag, Lisa is still an annoyingly unlikable activist, and Bart is still the rebel without any teeth... Homer is still oblivious to all but himself, And the humour has gotten so pointlessly topical and celebrity appearnces so pointlessly written in that you'd thing that they're desperate to show that the franchise has gotten so old its become dated. But the film is still good for a chuckle or two, just dont go in expecting anything new or groundbreaking or original.

Coming to America

eddie murphy's best film.


R Lee Ermy vs. Crispin Glover. Nuff Said.


some very good and convincing performances... I still like the Kenneth Brannaugh version better though

Gentlemen Prefer Blondes

eh, I didnt care for it...

Battleship Potemkin

despite my not entirely agreeing with the general spirit of the film, its still a masterpiece of film

Dirty Work
Dirty Work(1998)

one of the most laugh-out-loud halarious films Ive ever seen... filled with such bad jokes, but the delivery is PERFECT.


silly, but not really clever

A Night at the Opera

they dont make comedies like this anymore... films with real wit and plot... definitly a model to be studied


a beautiful film, but makes me bitter and jealous, that girls like Amelie do not exist in real life- only in the movies


Salma Hayek makes even Frida Kahlo look sexy

The Blair Witch Project

interesting experiment, and definitly has its scary moments.... not perfect, but still creepy

Bad Santa
Bad Santa(2003)

my all time favorite holiday film... brutaly dark humour, with a happy ending that's not too sappy and not too bleak

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone

just good, youthful fun! Sometimes, I wish I had films like this when I was young enough to fully appreciate them

Paris Je T'aime

This film was beautiful... made me feel like I was actualy in paris, on a real date

The Nightmare Before Christmas

a little over-rated, but a good film... a christmas movie fo the weirdo in all of us, and a halloween film for the uptight goody-two shoes in all of us :)

Ed Wood
Ed Wood(1994)

Martin Landau, and Bela Lugosi definitly steal the show, a humourous, yet tragic look at a group of misfits that triumph against the odds, in their own odd sort of way

Downfall (Der Untergang)

a masterpiece, a powerfull film displaying the fear and desperation of a group of fanatics seeing their disasterous end...at the end, you almost feel sorry for them.


not even Paul Reiser or Bill Paxton could ruin this film

Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones

not as bad as Phantom Menace, not as good as Revenge of the Sith

Art School Confidential

not a bad movie, if not a lttile on the emo-ish side

Ocean's Thirteen

not quite as good as ocean's 12... but still good fun.

Triumph des Willens (Triumph Of The Will)

regardless of the subject matter, its still an amazing work of film. Love it or hate it, you cannot deny its power

The Great Dictator

what could have been a perfect film is ruined by the notorious heavy-handed long-winded speech at the end of the film... otherwise, a great piece of cinimae


a little melodramatic, but still a beautiful, bittersweet film

Street Fighter II: The Animated Movie

dumb, cheesy fun, with a great soundtrack

The Complete Superman Cartoons

animation at its finest... decades ahead of its time

Aqua Teen Hunger Force Colon Movie Film for Theaters

There is a reason why ATHF is packaged in 15 min doses... because anything more would cause an overdose... and this is what this movie is: an overdose of brutal non-sequitar absurdidty... too much if it and it may just blow your mind, wondering what the hell happened, where the hell your time went, and why the hell you were laughing so hard

Modern Times
Modern Times(1936)

What's so great about this film, is that its able to make an artistic statement, without leaning too much politicaly towards one wing of the other, satirizing both left wing and right wing politcs of the day.

The Bear
The Bear(1989)

I vaugely remember seeing this as a kid, but I do remember really enjoying it


not his finest film, but still some good Dangerfield material

Big Top Pee-wee

I saw this in the theatres back when I was 7 or 8 or so, so I have some good nostalgic memories of this one... not as good as Big Adventure, but still a fun, entertaining film, with a certain twisted edge to it

Naked Lunch
Naked Lunch(1991)

Ill have to see this one agian.. its been a while

Stand and Deliver

its a fine film... but I became SO sick of watching it day-in and day-out in middle school, especaily since my middle school was one of those "trouble" schools filled with mexican gang-bangers... it just got real old, real fast

Shriek If You Know What I Did Last Friday the 13th

this best parody of horror films. Forget Scary Movie, this one is far more clever, with far less toilet-humour

The Killing
The Killing(1956)

film noir at its finest.

Cowboy Bebop Remix - Vol. 1

the perfect show for late night, when everything is quiet and the day is over.

The Last Temptation of Christ

its been a while since Ive seen this... Ill have to see it again

Little Nemo: Adventures in Slumberland

I vaugely remember seeing this one as a kid... back then I didnt know who Winsor McKay was, but I still liked it... Ill have to give this one a 2nd watch


terrible comedy, but still good for a few chuckles

Back to School

perfect 80s humor

Baby's Day Out

stupid family crap.

Kiss The Girls

I thought this was fairly boring when I 1st saw it... then again, it was so long ago, and I was a different person back then... I may give it a 2nd try someday

Easy Rider
Easy Rider(1969)

a bit overrated.... but the ending is worth sitting through the rest of the deadweight... and Jack Nicholson totaly steals this film

Ghost World
Ghost World(2001)

this is one of the saddest films of all time... true to the original source while at the same time introducing a bit of artistic liscence. This film depresses me, but in all the right ways


beautiful sets, beautiful costumes, beautiful score, this one's a classic for all times

Punch-Drunk Love

who knew adam sandler could actualy ACT?

The Big Kahuna

at least they got Wichtia reasonably right... not a bad film, if not a little heavy-handed


ugh... this could have been a great film, but its just too bogged down with gratuitous and unneccessary sex


a very disturbing film... definitly a must see

Cool World
Cool World(1992)

despite being plauged by production problems, its still a good stylish cult film

Star Trek Generations

filled with production flaws, but its such a good film, I didnt even notice them until they were pointed out


a big disappointment... but visualy impressive

The Devil's Rejects

this film was terrible... no substance, no style, no class, even by its own standards

The Graduate
The Graduate(1967)

a little overrated, but still a fine film

Requiem for a Dream

a masterpiece... it doesnt get much better than this

Stephen King's The Shining (MINI-SERIES)

not as good as Kurbick's but still a great movie on its own merits

Grizzly Man
Grizzly Man(2005)

at first, I thought it was a mockumentry... NOBODY could be this crazy or dumb

House of 1000 Corpses

no substance, but at least it has style

The Godfather, Part III

the least of the three movies, but still not a bad film (even with Sophia Copolla's "acting")

Star Trek: Insurrection

not what it could or should have been... It felt more like an extended regular TNG episode more than a feature film... I for one would have rather seen a film featuring the Dominion than this... not to say its a bad film, mind you- it just could have been better


I can admit to liking this one,.... but not too much


2nd best film of 2005

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II - The Secret of the Ooze

such a cheesy guilty pleasure... it has it all! Dancin' Turtles, Ninja Pizza delivery boys, David Warner getting down, AND VANILLA FRIGGIN ICE!

The Aviator
The Aviator(2004)

best film of 2005

The Punisher
The Punisher(2004)

not bad, but Ive already considered a fairly bland and uninteresting 1-dimensional character


even Kubrick's wort is above par compared with the rest


Kevin Smith is an egotistcal HACK.

Freddy Got Fingered

probably the guilties pleasure of all.... Its bad, but I think that was its goal, therefore, mission accomplished

Ernest Goes to Jail

I admit... I liked it

Star Wars: Clone Wars - Volume 1

how the prequals SHOULD have been


probably the best adaptation of the character PERIOD.

Return to Oz
Return to Oz(1985)

dark and twisted, JUST HOW I LIKES IT!

Man on the Moon

not really anything groundbreaking... its like Forman saw the Comedy Centry documentry and copied it annecdote for annecdote.

DuckTales: The Movie - Treasure of the Lost Lamp

Ill admit... I loved this as a kid, and I still do

The Time Machine

not as good as the original, had a lackluster ending, but still worth a watch

Problem Child

one of my favorite guilty pleasures

The Master of Disguise

this film was terrible. I loved the disguises, but the plot and script was BAD. BAD BAD BAD.

The Last Castle

cheesy, but not terrible

Serial Mom
Serial Mom(1994)

one of my all time faves

Any Given Sunday

Oliver Stone's last good film... this one gave me a greater respect for the sport

Batman & Mr. Freeze: Subzero

this was a disappointment... I expected better from the Bruce Timm factory

Star Trek - Nemesis

not the best of the series, but I didnt think it was as bad as the critics... the final dogfight makes it all worth it

The Cell
The Cell(2000)

nice visualy, interesting plot, with the exception of D'Onofrio, Poor cast

Star Trek: First Contact

the best of the Franchise. Resistance is Futile

National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation

one of my all time favorite holiday films

Saving Silverman

R Lee Ermey totaly MADE this movie

West Side Story

ugh... hated this film... who the hell is threatened by singing gangs? camera shots are nice though

Time Bandits
Time Bandits(1981)

too confusing for me

The Indian in the Cupboard

the kid had this creepy look in his face

Star Trek: The Motion Picture

its like 2001 except not as good

Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow

one of the most fun and beautiful films Ive ever seen

not as bad as I thought it was going to be

Memoirs of a Geisha

great acting and directing, horrible scripting and plot

Look Who's Talking

I liked it when I was young

Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan

this film is disturbing. makes a strong case for an American Cultural clensing movement.

Lady in the Water

I didnt think it was as bad as everyone else said it was

Aeon Flux
Aeon Flux(2005)

far better than I thought it was going to be

Rush Hour
Rush Hour(1998)

racial sterotypes, anyone?

The Exorcist
The Exorcist(1973)

I thought it was halarious, in a MST3K sorta way

The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen

the more I watched it, the less I liked it.... especialy given that the people involved in the film are capable of MUCH better.

Freddy vs. Jason

I thought it was fun, but nothing special

Ferris Bueller's Day Off

this film makes me wish I went to high school in the 80s


the worst piece of garbage I ever had to sit though

Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back

One of the great films of all time, and by far the best of the series

Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer

they STILL cant get Dr. Doom right... COME ONE, if you cant get at least the Doctor right, then stop trying!

The Prestige
The Prestige(2006)

this film has one of the most beautiful endings ever.

Independence Day

cheesy, but good tasting cheese

My Super Ex-Girlfriend

most halarious film Ive seen in YEARS

Anger Management

better than I thought, but still an Adam Sandler film

Finding Neverland

this film was beautiful... brought me to tears *sniff*

The Shining(1980)

"Heeeeerrrres Johnny!" This film sets the bar for horror and suspense

The Matrix Revolutions

the biggest anti-climax of all time.


anyone who lives in or has ever lived in kansas will know what a croc of crap this film is.

Mary Poppins
Mary Poppins(1964)

Julie Andrews, AND Mary Poppins are Teh Sex

Angels in the Outfield

christopher lloyd can make just about any film bearable

Moulin Rouge!

sappy, overrated, but nice visuals

The Land Before Time

Ill admit, it made me cry at the end when I was in the 1st grade

The Waterboy
The Waterboy(1998)

all Adam Sandler films are really the same...

Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory

even as a kid, I didnt think it was that great... I loved the boat ride though

Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace

Meesa think dis feel De TERRRRRRIBLLLLE... although the Darth Maul Sequence was really cool

Sleepy Hollow

not without its flaws, but visualy beautiful

Hannibal Rising

not as good as the original 3, but still a fine addition to the series

The Godfather

overrated, but still a classic

if it was indiana jones in the movie, it would have been at least an hour shorter, damnit.

The Craft(1996)

a cheesy, good film, nice eye candy


*shrug* I liked it

Spider-Man 2
Spider-Man 2(2004)

what all comic book films should aspire to be

The Matrix Reloaded

a little heavy, but probably the best of the trilogy

American Wedding

I managed to sit through it... toilet humor, but not as bad as I was expecting

Home Alone 2: Lost in New York

I liked it better the first time, WHEN IT WAS CALLED HOME ALONE 1

The Brothers Grimm

not as good as I was hoping for, but not as bad as I was expecting

The Karate Kid

I thought it was fun


the most anti-climatic ending EVER


the book wasnt that great either

The Rocky Horror Picture Show

a little shallow, but still an adequet film

Forrest Gump
Forrest Gump(1994)

a little sappy, but still a good film

not without its faults, but still visualy stunning

George of the Jungle

good for a few laughs

Terminator 2: Judgment Day

this sets the bar for sci-fi thrillers... truely ahead of its time

V for Vendetta

Alan Moore may have hated it, but I thought it was adequet.... not without its flaws though... but I fo agree with Moore- "If the americans wanted to make a film to parrellel the corruption of american government, then they should have used an american icon, like paul ravere or uncle sam"

The Crow
The Crow(1994)

cheesy, but well done

Beavis and Butt-head Do America

uhhh huh huh huh... this film is, like, cool, heh heh heh

Fight Club
Fight Club(1999)

1st rule of fight club is: YOU DO NOT TALK ABOUT FIGHT CLUB.


one of my all time faves... Im in love with Lydia Deetz

World Trade Center

I expected SO much more from Oliver Stone... a disaster film without teeth

Ghost Rider
Ghost Rider(2007)

this film could have been about ANY Marvel character- typical "misunderstood hero getting powers and responsibilties they never ask for, and their quest for love against the odds. BORING.... but Cage did seem to have a little fun with it, so it did have its redeeming moments

Peter Pan
Peter Pan(1953)

liked it as a kid

An American Tail - Fievel Goes West

for some weird reason, I liked this film as a kid...
