"Amy Adams is amazing and James Marsden does wonders with the little screen time he has. The film starts off great as it completely embraces and machine guns through the traditional Disney story in about 10 minutes. From there on it masterfully pokes fun of it's own genre without actually making fun of it. The downside comes from the last 15-20 minutes where the film kind of reverts to what it avoided. Though I did appreciate the woman saving the man. Still it's great fun with tons of laughs."
|78 68%||Me, Myself & Irene (2000) - Feb 25, 2007
"A very different comedy for sure. If anyone can be two completely different crazy characters it's Jim Carrey for sure. Lots of slapstick comedy and toilet humour throughout this movie. If you like that then definitely check out this movie. If not then you're going to want to skip this one."
|90 91%||Hot Fuzz (2007) - Feb 27, 2007
"I love over-the-top action movies with something special to them. An over-the-top action movie that is also hilariously satirizes it's own genre? Completely and utterly sold! I found it even better than Shaun of the Dead."
|93 96%||High Plains Drifter (1973) - Sep 02, 2009
"Personally I find this to be a better movie than the Man With No Name trilogy. It's terribly brutal, dark and uncompromising yet, at the same time, it has an absolutely bizarre sense of justice and redemption. Clint Eastwood is absolutely superb in his absolute mockery of the town he claims he will help. This is an must see for any western movie fan, if you can stomach it."
|90 91%||Spaceballs (1987) - Feb 24, 2007
"The best spoof movie ever made in my opinion and certainly one of Mel Brooks' best. Absolutely essential viewing for any comedy fan."
|80 72%||The Onion Movie (2008) - Jul 09, 2008
"It feels like Network-lite or rather Network 2: Slapstick Edition, and there's no doubt the creators were aware of this as they directly reference Network towards the end. Now that's the only complaint I have. Aside from that this is great absurd satire that I haven't seen since Kentucky Fried Movie. Some of it's great, some of it's stupid but great or stupid I still found myself laughing pretty damn hard at every single joke and that is what's most important. Also I'd watch Cockpuncher any day."
|86 86%||Shoot 'Em Up (2007) - Oct 17, 2007
"One of the most over-the-top and ridiculous action movies I've ever seen in my entire life. It's downright absurd. And I loved every second of it. This film is pure self-aware action and every second is fantastic. Owen, Bellucci and Giamatti are all spot on in this. If you love action films with no regard for reality this is THE movie to see. If you don't like action then certainly miss this one, there's nothing in it for you."
|83 79%||Arn - The Kingdom at Road's End (2008) - Dec 29, 2008
"Better than the first as it doesn't suffer from an overly long exposition which takes up almost half the film. Instead it focuses on Arn as a man through the his involvement in the crusades and his eventual return to his homeland and the turmoil which continues there. It's style is obviously inspired by Kingdom of Heaven, like the first, which is definitely a welcome inspiration. While it's not a fantastic film it is an enjoyable epic from Sweden."
|77 66%||Arn: The Knight Templar (2007) - Dec 15, 2008
"Arn suffers from an overly long amount of time setting up Arn's character. The first hour of the film is spent on his melodramatic upbringing which. It isn't bad but dragged out. However, once he becomes a Templar the movie really gets going and kicks some serious medieval-movie ass. Visually the film obviously borrows from Kingdom of Heaven but you can forgive them for that because that KoH was gorgeous. This is the most expensive Scandinavian movie ever and totally worth the money."
|93 96%||Titus (1999) - Mar 10, 2007
"Shakespeare's most bloody and violent play has been masterfully adapted into an imaginary facist-world and it works perfectly. Everyone in the film is fantastic, especially Hopkins and Jessica Lange. The sets, costumes and art direction are nothing short of brilliant. One or two of the dreamish sequences don't sit quite right but aside from that it's masterful."
