  • A Gaiola Dourada

    More a series of sketches than an unified plot. Still very much worth watching, if nothing else for the massive amount of talent on screen.

  • In Good Company

    Good grief, what a milquetoast affair. Directed by the American Pie creator, here comes corporatist propaganda faux-raging against the system.

  • Cloud Atlas

    Another “unfilmable” story turned into a great film. That moniker looks like a dare.

  • The Strangers

    Unspeakable horror. Almost literally, the 3 bad guys have less than 3 lines in total.

  • Diabolique

    The one with the following quote:

    20 bucks they killed him. Dykes.

  • Operation Chromite

    Melodramatic and over the top. Even being a war film, it has more in common with John Woo heroic bloodshed.

  • Living in Oblivion

    A Catherine Keener meta film. She proves anyone can be typecast as anything.

  • Hide and Seek

    Jennifer Tilly is a half retarded maniac wannabe mother. Daryl Hannah is the forced surrogate mother. Together, they are at each other’s throats.

  • The Brothers Grimm

    Mainstream Gilliam is a mishmash of watchable-by-muggles and just too damn weird.

  • Shoot 'em Up

    Paul Giamatti violently chewing the scenery while Clive Owen chews on carrots. The dark and gritty adaptation that Bugs Bunny needed, not one he wanted.

  • Sister Act

    Hallelujah! Another cool musical. I was nun the wiser they existed.

  • In the Realm of the Senses

    Porn without plot. Completely worthless.

  • Síndrome de Estocolmo

    A scathing satire of Portuguese society. The script writer was a classy troll, and the fact that this was greenlit by the biggest broadcast network only makes it even funnier.

  • Night Will Fall

    A documentary about a documentary about the Nazi concentration camps buried by the British after the war.

  • Skammen

    The first Bergman I ever watched is a feeble anti war film.

  • Se7en

    What’s in the box (office)? The perfect Halloween film, if you like your candy laced with rusty razorblades, for your mind.

  • The Royal Tenenbaums

    Not sure if I should laugh, even though its funny.
    Not sure if I should cry, even though is sad.
    A Wes Anderson film.

  • The Pink Panther

    Cyclists falling over: The Movie.

  • The Pink Panther 2

    Should be named “The Pink Panther: You Too?”

  • The Intern

    Not so much about start-ups, just another film to add to the long list of Nancy Meyers works.

  • Pompeii

    Not as disastrous as it seems.

  • Deadpool

    Can’t hold a candle to R.I.P.D., that’s my verdict. If that’s not a black mark, I don’t know what is.
