The Nutty Professor 0

Personally, if I had wanted to give Eddie Murphy a good reason to scream and act idiotic for a couple of hours I would have given him a glass of Liquid Plummer and a straw.

The People vs. Larry Flynt 0

"The People vs. Larry Flynt" isn't only a film about poor taste, but a reflection of our own.

The Princess Bride 0

In real life, that slut Buttercup would not only have married Prince Humperdinck and spawned his children, but probably would have been doing Andre the Giant on the side.

The Shawshank Redemption 4

Isn't it always the upper-class white guys who are falsely convicted?

The Silence of the Lambs 0

What cop in his right mind actually steps inside Lecter's cage? Idiots. Come feeding time, I stand about fifty feet from his cage and spray baby food to him with a fire hose. The hell if he's cutting my face off.

The Sweet Hearafter0

Basically, what Egoyan's film indicates in the end is that complex issues cannot be addressed in cinema unless ridiculous, pathetic melodrama is involved.

11/21/1997 - 21:57
The Treasure of the Sierra Madre 0

Why is it that a movie's audience members can often see trouble brewing a mile away that the characters can't see until it comes up and gives them a faintly suggestive jackhammer enema?

The Truman Show0

"The Truman Show" ejaculates its Hollywood wet dream right onto our laps: a flawlessly run, thirty-year, top-rated television show.

06/05/1998 - 20:33
The Usual Suspects0

"The Usual Suspects" makes the NY Times Crossword Puzzle look like "Wheel of Fortune."

08/16/1995 - 18:55
The Wizard of Oz0

Dorothy is obviously tripping her ass off on insecticides.

08/25/1970 - 23:09
Time Out0

Leave it to the French to make a movie about a man named Vincent who spends an entire film pretending to have a job in much the same way the French pretend to have a spine.

Touching the Void0

Now, when there's something out there that nobody has ever done before, there's usually a reason. For instance, nobody has ever climbed up the side of the Empire State Building wearing underpants brimming with scorpions.

Toy Story0

The maldistribution of wealth caused by "Toy Story" can only lead to further class dissatisfaction and an eventual revolution.

11/22/1995 - 01:19
True Grit1

There's a reason no one makes westerns anymore, and "True Grit" provides us with an exceptionally crystal clear reminder.

02/23/2011 - 09:55

Directors and writers always like to find that one really bad guy who is redeemed by babies and lambs and puppies.

12/23/2005 - 20:28

Is there anybody in real life who talks like they do in an M. Night Shyamalan film?

11/22/2000 - 01:59

I don't know what riding around on a horse when you're eighty years old does to your prostate, but it can't be good. Ultimately, this turns out to be the lesson of the movie.

Why do I keep capitalizing UNSTOPPABLE? Because it is the MOUNTAIN DEW of train movies. It is EXTREME. In UNSTOPPABLE there are HELICOPTERS flying inches away from SPEEDING LOCOMOTIVES – ALL THE TIME!

Up in the Air10

The basic premise of “Up in the Air” is that a person needs a family, at least some kind of permanence, in order to be truly happy. This is, of course, a giant, heaping pile of shit.

West Side Story1

Upon seeing a ten-minute long opening sequence featuring thin, effeminate men dancing around in extraordinarily tight pants, the audience begins to realize it's in for much more.
