Two Bomb Mr. Cranky Movie Reviews
Director Mike Hodges seems to have spent plenty of time with the atmosphere of the casino and such -- things anybody could have gotten right -- and hardly any time thinking about whether the story made sense.

There's some blithering about prime numbers and Cartesian coordinates, and I was pretty much lost and pissed off after that.

Instead of concentrating on the set as a new platform for exposing his neurosis to anyone left in America who might care, Allen might have invested in making the story less predictable than Roger Ebert at an all-you-can-eat buffet.

Friction between two men over a woman is some of the most clichéd bullshit you will ever see onscreen, and unless you can convince Steve Martin and Michael Caine to co-star your movie is going to suck. Throw in a disturbing incest angle and open with a scene of John C. Reilly masturbating and you’ve got a real winner on your hands.

|Dancer in the Dark||0|
This film is a condemnation of the American way of life, pure and simple.

Unfortunately, it's chess.

Why are there always kids? Why is there always a petthat has to be saved? How come the support team always has to be ethnically and sexually balanced?

Ultimately, there's only so much that can happen in a zombie remake. If you know the story, there aren't any surprises. It's just more crap from a Hollywood creative machine turned almost completely off.

This is why poetry teachers make really bad psychologists.

Under the mistaken impression that this was some sort of "action" movie in which the characters spend a significant amount of screen time shooting at people and driving cars in a reckless manner, I found myself nodding off while watching young Anthony grow up.

I wanted to puke.

One can't help but notice Allen's consistently twisted view of women: The younger ones are goddesses, while the older ones -- the ones with the guile to work and vote -- tend to be manic bitches.

"Deep Blue Sea" reeks of a desperation that at this point can only be called "Harlinesque."

Rodriguez pays a nice homage to Quentin Tarantino by allowing him to act in this movie and then shooting him in the face.

When your choices are between K.C. and the Sunshine Band, Le Freak, and KISS, it's not exactly like choosing KISS is the equivalent of making a social statement.

The penis is indeed king.

|Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story||1|
This film could well win the Oscar in the category of Most Projectiles to the Crotch in a Feature Film.

In order to convince audiences that Johnny Depp really isn't a little furniture-throwing, reporter-abusing wuss, who has to date anorexic women so he looks like a man when he stands next to them, Newell has surrounded him with so many recognizable actors that "Donnie Brasco" looks like a gangster film retrospective.

|Down With Love||0|
Part tribute, part send-up of the romantic comedies of the early 1960s, "Down with Love" reminds us that as bad as movies are today, there was a time when they were actually worse.

What the French think is good cinema is the kind of stuff Americans see at shopping malls every day.
