100 81% The Call of Cthulhu (2005) - Rated 24 Nov 2008
"I would give this 150 if I could. It's a short piece, but it is a deeply loving tribute to Lovecraftian mythos and the state of the moviemaking art in the days before sound. It may not be the best movie ever made, but a lot of work and attention to detail went into it, and I can't wait to see The Whisperer In The Darkness, their next cinematic endeavor of which I'm aware."
85 25% Flash Gordon (1980) - Rated 20 Nov 2008
"Super-hokey and easily worth a thousand laughs. How they talked Max von Sydow or Timothy Dalton into this I have no idea, but it's a festival of pure over-the-top cornball sci-fi that works beautifully as unintentional comedy."
60 5% Dungeons & Dragons (2000) - Rated 20 Nov 2008
"With the title and the advertising, it would be reasonable to assume the people responsible for this movie knew the gaming system; it would also be wildly incorrect. There are two reasons I watch it: Damodar and his bom-chicka-wow-wow "I'm a Broadway dancer!" walk, and "I will invent new kinds of pain and new senses for you to feel it with!". I swear, I really think someone was sneaking crack into Jeremy Irons's coffee on this set."
100 81% Spaceballs (1987) - Rated 20 Nov 2008
"This alltime parody classic is pretty close to the last gasp of Mel Brooks being allowed to be funny (Robin Hood: Men In Tights is pretty much his last hurrah) and oh boy is it ever funny if you like slapstick sendups. This is an ancestor of the Scary Movie series, one people with my tastes find a lot funnier than the modern version."
90 38% The Whole Nine Yards (2000) - Rated 20 Nov 2008
"The dentist annoys the living daylights out of me, as do his wife and mother-in-law, but everything else about this movie cracks me up every time I watch it."
95 55% Titan A.E. (2000) - Rated 20 Nov 2008
"Beautiful visual design, lovely animation, and a fairly plausible plot allow the star-packed cast to have what sounds like a lot of fun with their characters. It's a shame that the mistake of marketing this film as a kiddie cartoon sank its makers financially."
90 38% Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991) - Rated 20 Nov 2008
"This beast crashed into the 90s headlong, upping set budgets and making CGI the way to go, neither of which was entirely a positive change. It still stands as an awesome movie; I would have rated it 100 if they hadn't cut out the footage that explains WHY the T-1000 melted in the steel bucket."
30 0% Failure to Launch (2006) - Rated 20 Nov 2008
"I got suckered into watching this by a friend who loved it and didn't get that our movie tastes were diametrically opposed; all I really remember is the running joke about animal bites and feeling so sorry for Kathy Bates."
100 81% Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981) - Rated 20 Nov 2008
"We all wondered how he could follow up Han Solo, and lo and behold Harrison Ford handed us Indy! The rest of the franchise went rapidly downhill, but this first one is a permanent classic in action/adventure."
100 81% The Breakfast Club (1985) - Rated 20 Nov 2008
"One of THE teen-angst movies of the 80s, by master of the genre John Hughes and often regarded as one of two films required to be on a Brat Packer's resume. I knew most of these kids in high school too."
