Two Bomb Mr. Cranky Movie Reviews
I'm all for shameless female nudity in movies, but Rodriguez trots out his actresses sort of like boxing promoters trot out ring girls between rounds.

Yes, Laurence Olivier has been dead since 1989, but Conran uses archival footage to essentially drag his corpse from the grave and animate it onscreen so he can make a quick buck. Isn't Hollywood wonderful?

Barry Levinson didn't need a screenplay for this movie; he needed an editing machine and a good copyright lawyer.

Myths, fairy tales, and comic books are for dopes who live in their parents' basement, their best moments existing solely in their heads.

The idea that anything could happen to the British to make them more assertive is pure fantasy and explains Paltrow's casting. How do you make a Brit more assertive? You make her American.

"Sling Blade" is another one of those films in which some "slow" guy turns out to be the smartest person in the picture.

Incidentally, while 20 million rupees may seem like a lot, I'm told it will get you no more than a Venti latte at a Starbucks.

I guess it's nice to live in an age where America hasn't been involved in any major wars for awhile, freeing Hollywood types to hijack elements of our last consequential conflict, Vietnam, for a cheap Saturday-morning cartoon ripoff.

You'd think that, after hundreds of years of oppression, they'd try for something more substantial.

As ever, De Palma proves himself the master of overkill, beating his technique until it's limp and drained, leaving audience members to wonder how many more quarters they're going to have to plug into the machine to get to an actual plot point.

It’s sort of like that awkward visit to the nursing home when you get there a little bit too early and accidentally witness grandpa getting beaten by an orderly with his own belt for pissing himself for the tenth time that morning. In other words, it’s uncomfortable.

What possible angle on the tried-and-true "the English are mean" theme did the filmmakers feel had been left unexplored?

This must be one of the most ridiculous cases of tokenism I've ever seen.

"Spanking the Monkey" is the warmest family comedy to grace the screen since "Jade."

Spider-Man just loves to get other men sticky.

"Spider-Man 2" is less a superhero action film than it is a twelve-step program for self-actualization.

This is the highest-grossing film in Japan's history, which really makes you wonder what kind of weed the Japanese have been smoking.

Maybe somebody not cowed by Redford could point out the obvious to him.

Even spookier is the fact that Teri Hatcher is in this film, acting with that weird quivery poodle-energy you know from the Radio Shack commercials.

No "Star Trek" films is worth its salt unless Klingons are getting blown up.
