"My favourite Scorsese movie. Everyone is in top form. Liotta, Pesci, De Niro, everyone. The fact that it's based on a true story makes it even more frightening. Most certainly Scorsese's masterpiece."
|86 86%||Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid (1969) - Apr 20, 2007
"I loved everything about this film, except for the montages. I thought they went on just a little bit too long. Aside from that this movie is great. Redford and Newman are both fantastic as the likable, hilarious outlaws. One of the best westerns for sure."
|90 91%||The Bourne Ultimatum (2007) - Aug 21, 2007
"A near perfect action film in my opinion. Paul Greengrass' shaky-cam style is more prominant than in Supremacy but I thought it was used just right. You're able to follow the action, except when Greengrass is intentionally trying to disorientate you (eg. the POV of the people chasing Bourne). The action is more intense than ever before, and yet it retains it's somewhat realistic feel. The only thing that brings it down, in my opinion, are a few somewhat corny lines. Amazing action film."

"Totally over-the-top and fake but it does have the essence of truth in the "this is how we feel in the service industry" way of things. A lot of it is really stupid dick jokes and I won't say that's it's charm. This movie has no charm, it's rude, crass and really in your face with how rude and crass it is. However this is actually funny unlike other films that attempt similar things (looking at you Epic Movie and almost every other _____ Movie). "
|87 88%||Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog (2008) - Mar 09, 2009
"Totally hilarious. I don't really consider it new like some though, it runs like a mockumentary except with a blog in place of the documentary. Still it's still an absolute laugh riot. Neil Patrick Harris is hilarious and Nathan Fillion is fantastic. If you're a Whedon fan this is, without a doubt, completely essential viewing. If you're not but you enjoy goofy comedies that don't take themselves too seriously then this is still essential viewing."
|95 98%||Syriana (2005) - Feb 25, 2007
"A powerful film with astounding acting, especially from George Clooney who well deserved the Oscar for best supporting actor. The movie is very fast paced but with dialog and plot progression, not action. This will undoubtedly overwhelm and confuse the average viewer, that and a very strong anti-globalization/Americanization message may turn off the average Joe. Still this is one of the best movies you will ever see if you can handle the subject matter and how it is presented."
|19 10%||Terror at Blood Fart Lake (2009) - Oct 25, 2009
"In sections it's honestly funny in a "I can't believe they're passing this off in a real movie" way but overall it's nowhere near what I would consider a decent flick. This is something to rent with your buddies and get drunk watching but really you should get that from the title alone. If you've ever made a zero-budget film with friends you'll enjoy this more than you should, like I have. It's full or horrid wigs and terrible fake mustaches and makeup."
|90 91%||Kiss Kiss Bang Bang (2005) - Dec 22, 2006
"Hilarious flick and highly entertaining. Makes fun of it's own genre perfectly without being an outright satire. Val Kilmer and Robert Downey Jr. feed off each other perfectly. Fantastic film!"
|73 57%||The Long Kiss Goodnight (1996) - Mar 06, 2010
"It's a damn entertaining action flick that certainly didn't deserve to bomb the way it did. Shane Black managed to write Samuel L. Jackson a superbly hilarious sidekick character that isn't annoying and Geena Davis manages to pull off being both a housewife and a hardcore CIA assassin. Looking back it reminds me of the Bourne series. An assassin gets shot, falls into the ocean, survives and gets rescued and sets on a quest to recover their memory."
|90 91%||Louis and the Brothel (2003) - Apr 11, 2009
"Incredibly insightful as it allows you to view a rather well established brothel, the Wild Horse, and it's staff as real flesh and blood human beings. While I can't say that brothels, escorts or prostitution are something I approve of, this documentary is a real eye-opener to lifestyle that's certainly alien to a lot of people. Louis Theroux is a masterful interviewer who really manages to get people to open up and it's subjects like these that really let him shine."
