|80 T7||Basket Case 3: The Progeny (1992) - Sep 10, 2008
"More like comedy than serious horror, but, considering the material and the director, that seems perfectly appropriate. So funny and completely off-the-chart weird that it's a minor delight"
|50 T4||Anvil! The Story of Anvil (2009) - Apr 19, 2009
"Yes, this is a real movie and "Anvil" is a real band, despite the drummer's name and a couple other things that look like _Spinal Tap_ references. The whole time I was thinking, "These guys are SUCH retards." Further evidence for the longstanding theory that people who are into drugs (even the legal ones) never grow up; in particular, "Lips" has the "stoner" default facial expression, and still speaks the "Sup dude!" metaller patois despite being over 50. Their music isn't so hot, either"
|40 T3||Macario (1960) - May 11, 2009
"Handsomely photographed, but silly. This is yet another movie in which every character has to behave like an idiot so the plot can keep going. The late Philip Jose Farmer's novel _Stations of a Nightmare_ is a MUCH better story with basically the same plot -- "ordinary man suddenly and inexplicably becomes a great healer""
|90 T9||Tune in Tomorrow... (1990) - Oct 17, 2008
"Charmingly strange little movie about a young man chasing his sexy aunt, helped along the way (if "helped" is the right word) by an eccentric scriptwriter. Along the way we keep leaving the "real" storyline for interludes into the writer's deranged radio drama, which is studded with star cameos. A fun movie that also has something to say, and it's not what you might think. I don't think there's any other film quite like it"
|100 T10||Betty Boop's Ker-Choo (1933) - Sep 14, 2009
"Do we Boop? Oh fuck yeah we Boop. Dave Fleischer cartoons are much better than most of the toons produced today as it is, but this really hits the spot. Enormously funny and charming from start to finish"
|91 T10||Traffik (1989) - Jul 17, 2009
"I saw the US movie version first. I must say I admire what a fine job Mr. Soderbergh did of transplanting this story to another continent and reinventing the cast of characters, but I still find this to be a little better. Its length allows for more detail, the absence of stars lends verisimilitude, it's often rawer and ickier... and Lindsay Duncan is a much better actress than Catherine Zeta-Jones. Sexier, too."
|100 T10||Heart Like a Wheel (1983) - Apr 15, 2008
"I don't give a damn about racing -- or about any sports -- but I think this movie is wonderful. I watch my copy over and over again, never tiring of it. Bedelia gives one of the greatest "quiet" performances I ever saw, of one woman's struggle to be what she was born to be, and Bridges is damn near perfect as one of the classic characters in fiction -- the lovable scoundrel"
|100 T10||Night of the Ghouls (1959) - Mar 31, 2007
"Very much in the Ed Wood tradition of being so bad it's priceless. Not to be missed"
|80 T7||Reefer Madness (1936) - Jun 12, 2007
"Bad but fascinating in its crudity, cheapness, hilarious ignorance of marijuana, and sheer hypocrisy"
|50 T4||Pride and Prejudice (1995) - Nov 08, 2007
"Mrs. Claypool, Mr. Gottlieb. Mr. Gottlieb, Mrs. Claypool. Mrs. Claypool, Mr. Gottlieb. Mr. Gottlieb, Mrs. Claypool. Mrs. Claypool..."
