0% Kurt & Courtney Kurt & Courtney (1998) - Rated 17 Nov 2010
"Wow - what a rotten, sorry-ass bunch of pox-ridden, sore-picking, sketched-out, incoherent "near Curt"s. A veritable scuzbagfest! That Nick Broomfield weasel needs the ol' 16-ton weight dropped on him. Cousin It probably would make a better journalist. When Courtney's fuzznuts of a dad said "it was the best of times, it was the worst of times" I almost did an Elvis on the TV. So - does El Duce go down for providing the ultimate "oops moment" of all time? Well, he DID go down. What a shitumentary"
69 34% Norma Rae Norma Rae (1979) - Rated 24 Feb 2011
"Too bad Fields didn't quite get her character "spot on" in the same way Andrea Martin did, playing Sally Jane Clayburgh-Streep, as Dolly, in "My Factory, My Self". If the former had been able to walk with straight arms tucked behind her back, small boobs thrust way out, and indignant, side-to-side strut, I would have given this maybe an 86."
58 17% That Darn Cat! That Darn Cat! (1965) - Rated 23 Feb 2011
"Disney apparently opted with the title "That Goddamned Fucking Cat!" before talking to their lawyers. When I was I kid I couldn't stand that whitebread milquetoast Dean Jones (even then I could see what a lizard person of a Disney rep he was), and this bowl of fermented offal is why."
70 37% The Song Remains the Same The Song Remains the Same (1976) - Rated 06 Feb 2011
"Any concert movie featuring a fountain of rainbow-cloured blood issuing from where Peter Grant's just-severed head used to be is a perfectly fine concert movie by me. Saying "does anybody rememba laf-ta?", really high-pitched, should be done with your left hand on your hip, and your right one in the air (as if to indicate "huh?"). Don super tight jeans with Derek Smalls accessory and you're off to the races. The blues jams were goat-farty."
43 8% The Jazz Singer The Jazz Singer (1980) - Rated 28 Nov 2010
"As someone who respects artists who are true to their craft, and who know when to tip their hat to their forbears, (their "roots"), I have to say I'm thoroughly disappointed - almost disgusted - that Niel Diamond neglected to honour the populist legacy of the original by not using blackface. One can only imagine the improvement it would have brought to Niel's interpretation of the character - it certainly would've lent him more credibility, making him a more waifish type."
100 99% Nuts in May Nuts in May (1976) - Rated 23 Feb 2011
"If words can even start to describe how this film so thoroughly rocked my world, then I will try my best. Most of my totally bemused friends have written off this BBC teleplay as a boring travelogue of an even more insufferably boring, nattering "middle-upper-class" couple who really don't do a hell of a lot. Even the most inane visual detail (a close-up of a walking meter strapped around an ankle), or inconsequential, throw-away line of dialogue has me rapt with inexplicable awe. I genuflect."
0% Maximum Overdrive Maximum Overdrive (1986) - Rated 12 Dec 2010
"I'm trying to put this as diplomatically as I can when I say that this is the worst piece of shit I think I've ever seen. I like the representing of that photo."
1% Seed of Chucky Seed of Chucky (2004) - Rated 03 Mar 2011
"To exhume one of my earlier metaphors, this had the musty, heady bouquet of a sasquatch orgy. (sorry Jennifer - I still heart you, ok?)"
0% Trash Humpers Trash Humpers (2009) - Rated 16 Dec 2010
"I'm grumpy again."
0% Kiss the Girls Kiss the Girls (1997) - Rated 01 Dec 2010
"Yes, I am STILL puking as you read this."
