Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang
4 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

With fantastic leading performances from Robert Downey Jr. and Val Kilmer to match an equally clever, irreverent, lightspeed dialogue script, 'Kiss Kiss Bang Bang' is an underrated gem of the genre. Writer/director Shane Black shows confidence and direction in this neo-noir feature that never takes itself very serious, but never falls short of captivating the audience in an exciting, mysterious, and utterly hilarious romp that proved to be a great return to form for Downey Jr. and Kilmer alike.

Final Grade: A+

Idiocracy
Idiocracy (2006)
5 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes
½

With an absurdist premise that only seems to become more prophetic as time goes on, writer/director Mike Judge's 'Idiocracy' is a criminally overlooked comedic satire. Luke Wilson and Maya Rudolph both give worthy performances as Joe Bowers and Rita, two average people from 2005, left far from home in an anti-intellectual dystopian future. Mike Judge's incredibly dumb, intentionally banal script works perfectly, as viewers witness the frighteningly stupid and hypersexualized world, 500 years in the future.

Final Grade: A
