"An intelligent and very different cops and robbers film. Excellent acting from all people involved with some of the most amazing action scenes you will ever see (the street shootout remains one of the most intense gunfights I have ever seen)."
|88 89%||Monty Python and the Holy Grail (1975) - Mar 14, 2010
"Quite hilarious but I think I have to agree it gets vastly over quoted to the point where it feels like a Monty Python movie for people who aren't really Monty Python fans. Even so it's terrifically hilarious in it's absurdity while still remaining to be intelligent and historically accurate in a bizarre Pythonesqe way. Personally I prefer the Life of Brian but this is still very entertaining."
|85 83%||South Park: Bigger, Longer, and Uncut (1999) - Mar 03, 2010
"Satirically it's a brilliant film. On one level I'm sure more immature people will find it funny for just how offensive it can back. However it can certainly be enjoyed on a more cerebral level. It does have something important to say as it points out the flaws with the MPAA and improperly directed rage which sets it's sights on censoring rather than responsible parenting."
|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."

"A highly enjoyable Christmas movie if you don't enjoy the far more melodramatic and formulaic holiday films. Well admittedly in a broad view this is quite formulaic, considering it's based on "A Christmas Carol" but it's so irreverent that it manages to appeal to those that really don't want to watch Christmas movies. Bill Murray is superb and his closing monologue really feels authentically made up on the spot rather than a rehearsed diatribe."
|79 70%||The Last Boy Scout (1991) - Dec 27, 2008
"A buddy-cop film that manages to hit pretty much every cliche of the genre but gets away with it due to it's hilarious dialog. Willis tosses out the one-liners like nobody's business and though I'm not a Damon Wayans fan he actually was alright in this movie. Plus the action scenes themselves are pretty impressive as well. All in all it's a fun action flick that's quite entertaining."
|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."
|75 62%||Lake Placid (1999) - Aug 30, 2008
"This movie would be complete B-movie fodder if it wasn't for the hilarious performances from Oliver Platt and Brendan Gleeson. They literally save this film in my books. Betty White, as well, is quite hilarious with her small amount of screen time. I normally don't like horror flicks but this movie has enough great laughs to keep you quite entertained. Sure the science is pretty goofy but it's a horror film so who cares."
|86 86%||From Russia with Love (1963) - Aug 14, 2007
"Certainly one of the best Bond films. The train fight is honestly as brutal and intense as anything you'll see nowadays. You can really tell how it has since inspired go many action films since, such as the Bourne trilogy. Fantastic continuation of the James Bond series."
|94 97%||The Third Man (1949) - Feb 25, 2007
"Orson Welles really steals the show for me in this. Despite all the morally despicable actions he commited I found myself cheering him on more than any other character. I don't think I can speak more highly of his performance as the charming villian than that. Great cinematography as well, especially in the sewers."
