"Terribly silly and slapstick but it's just so good that you can't not laugh. There's hundreds of jokes machine-gunned out and they're almost all funny. It's just so downright absurd and that's its charm. This is slapstick humor at it's very, very best."
|74 59%||Gremlins (1984) - Aug 14, 2007
"Totally silly horror fun. Doesn't even come remotely close to taking itself seriously and that's why it's so good."
|80 72%||3 Days of the Condor (1975) - Mar 22, 2007
"Relatively straight forward thriller which I find to be most refreshing as quite a few now seem unnecessarily complicated. Certainly a bit dated but the core story is certainly worthwhile. Redford is quite impressive. Worth seeing."
|82 76%||The Pentagon Wars (1998) - Feb 18, 2010
"I was absolutely amazed at how much I enjoyed this HBO film. It's black comedy is akin to what has been seen in Dr. Strangelove. Now I'm not saying this is as good as Dr. Strangelove, it's not. The film making quality isn't nearly as high nor is Kelsey Grammar a suitable substitute for George C. Scott. However the humour in the film is absolutely superb so overlooking rather unexciting visuals becomes quite easy."
|85 83%||Sin City (2005) - Aug 14, 2007
"Fantastic visuals. Absolutely fantastic. If nothing else anyone should be able to appreciate how beautiful the movie looks. The soundtrack is amazing and fits the movie perfectly. The entire cast is fantastic, especially Mickey Rourke as Marv. If you enjoy film noir then definitely check this one out."
|88 89%||The Matrix (1999) - Jan 03, 2007
"An excellent action film. Very stylish, with a good (not great but good) plot and great action. Such a shame about the sequels being so lackluster but this film really did set a new standard for action films (at least those made in North America)."
|87 88%||300 (2007) - Mar 15, 2007
"Visually it is an absolutely beautiful film, the Oracle dance is breathtaking. Every action sequence is nothing short of sheer perfection, honestly this movie will become text book "how to make ass-kicking look awesome." Certainly the plot is on the thin side but it is told in the manner of a glorious psyching-up legend that it feels just right. Gerard Butler is fantastic as the larger-than-life Leonidas and I thought the rest of the cast did decent jobs all around. "
|12 6%||Street Fighter (1994) - Feb 27, 2007
"Absolutely awful. Bad plot, terrible action and absolutely awful acting. However, upon recent viewing I did find one golden gem: "For you, the day Bison graced your village was the most important day of your life. But for me... it was Tuesday.""
|75 62%||Mystery Men (1999) - Aug 14, 2007
"A good comedy that delivers some great laughs here and there. Honestly I don't enjoy Ben Stiller one bit but the rest of the cast make this movie quite enjoyable. As a note William H. Macy is absolutely hilarious as The Shoveler."
|79 70%||The Naked Gun: From the Files of Police Squad! (1988) - May 15, 2008
"Not quite as good as Zucker's Airplane!, which I think it can be rightly compared to, but it's still a great silly, slapstick film. It really lampoons a lot of the silly crap that happens in so many cops and robbers movies. Plus you've got Leslie Nielsen doing exactly what Leslie Nielsen does best: dead-pan slapstick humor. For added humor you can also see O.J. Simpson in his acting career because he was a criminal, or at least a known criminal."
