E.T. (Rerelease) 0

In the spirit of the rerelease, rather than do anything approximating work (such as writing an entirely new review) I am going to "enhance" my brilliant original review of "E.T" in the space below.

Earthlings: Ugly Bags of Mostly Water 0

Here are a few of the things more nerdy than dedicating your life to studying the Klingon language.

Though billed as a comedy, this movie was difficult for me to watch, because it features Ed Asner as Santa and I suffer from a unique phobia called eabhaphobia: the fear of ever laying eyes on Ed Asner's bare hairy ass.

Liz is the "virgin queen" like Michael Bolton is the "king of funk."

Ella Enchanted0

"Ella Enchanted" is a poor man's "The Princess Bride." Not only that, but it's actually a pretty sick movie if you look at its basic premise.

Equilibrium 0

Everyone who watches films knows that no bad guy with a machine gun can hit anything. One wonders why they just haven't reverted to throwing rocks or taunting.

Erin Brockovich 2

Did I not already see this film a little over a year ago, when it was called "A Civil Action" and starred John Travolta instead of Julia Roberts?

Escape from New York 7

If an average person meets Kurt Russell in a dark alley in the middle of the night, he thinks to himself, "I bet I could beat this guy to death with a piece of string cheese."

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind 0

What makes this film close to unwatchable is the chaotic direction of (Michel) Gondry, who apparently feels that he has to add a certain level of wackiness to Charlie ("Adaptation") Kaufman's script, which is sort of like pouring a couple teaspoons of sugar in your Coke for added flavor.

It's just disturbing to be forced to watch some two-bit, teenage actor trying desperately to prove that he's the next David Spade. Is this what comedy acting has come to?

Ever After0

Drew Barrymore as a modern Cinderella? I was waiting for that scene where Drew jumped on Prince Henry's desk, pulled her shirt over her head, and invited the young prince to do a few lines of blow off her bare breasts.

Everyone Says I Love You 0

What could possibly be worse than yet another Woody Allen angst-fest? Try a Woody Allen angst-fest musical.

Excalibur 1

Naturally, when members of the aristocracy want to get their rocks off, it's the peasants who really get screwed.

My guess is that the villains here may be librarians.

Eyes Wide Shut0

What we end up with is a two-and-a-half hour expedition into Tom's head. Two-and-a-half hours! For God's sake, that should be a two-and-a-half minute trip max, with an intermission for popcorn.

As with any John Woo film, this plot is advanced with subtle narrative techniques such as flying bullets, large explosions and mountains of dead cops.

06/27/1997 - 20:33
Fahrenheit 9/11 8

I ask in all seriousness: where the fuck are their balls?

06/25/2004 - 20:37

The story is "Touched By an Angel" for the deranged.

01/16/1998 - 20:45
Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within 0

But all I could picture was... Steve Buscemi.

Finding Neverland0

"Finding Neverland" is about as predictable as an "um" from Britney Spears during an interview.
