"Scarlett Johansson plays an alien who takes the form of a seductress to prey on men in Scotland, providing a fascinating lens through which to view the human experience. It's a brilliant high-concept yet sparse sci-fi that explains absolutely nothing about the fantastical things it shows you but leaves little doubt about its intentions. The subtly ominous sound design is superb. Scarlett gives a riveting performance, and she doesn't look half bad naked, either."

"I think it's time to admit that Tarantino made a huge mistake bringing Travolta back from obscurity. What a horrible actor. Tim Allen has always sucked, but the usually solid Macy is totally wasted in this."

"A coquettish teenaged girl uses her charms to lure men to her home, where her demented family imprison and torture them. The balance is upset when one potential "new friend" starts playing the family members against each other. Parts of this are quite twisted, but the guy was being held prisoner by two old women and two children...I kept wondering why he didn't just pick up an axe and fuck up their shit."

"It's a cliched "week in the life" melodrama centered on a strip club and the various women who work there (one is pregnant, one is on drugs, one wants to adopt a kid, one is a poet, etc etc), and it's pretty decent. The real question is, is it worth sitting through to get to see Sandra Oh, Daryl Hannah, Charlotte Ayanna and Jennifer Tilly perform a couple of stripteases each? Two words: HELL YES. "

"It's the most enjoyable movie Tom Cruise has ever been in, and Tim Curry is the best Satan in the history of film."

"Never trust a junkie. Sage advice from Nancy Spungen."

"A crew making a horror movie on location in a house are secretly being filmed by the director, who is planning to kill them and release an authentic snuff film. Dreary, obvious stuff that drags agonizingly slowly for the entire run time, with zero suspense or real action. Also, you'd expect that a movie called "Effects" starring Tom Savini would have some awesome gore, but even that is sorely lacking in both quantity and quality. A real disappointment."

"Yeah, I think I'm done with Mike Myers now. I don't ever want to see his gurning face again."
|95 98%||Rashomon (1950) - Aug 13, 2007
"Rashomon is an incredible reflection on the subjective nature of truth; the Best Foreign Film category at the Oscars was basically created to recognize its genius."

"I found Annie Potts disturbingly sexy in this. Also, why can't Molly Ringwald see that Ducky is PERFECT for her? That materialistic bitch."
