  • Fantastic Mr. Fox

    Wes Anderson translates his style to stylistic “bad” stop motion. It works as well as his human-starring films, the emotional rollercoaster remains.

  • Down Periscope

    A weird animal. A ZAZ-less ZAZ-lite, playing the serious parts seriously, gunning for the Navy recruitment propaganda shtick. But it works, particularly after literally making Rob Schneider walk the plank. Arrr!

  • Snakes on a Plane

    Hyper-sexualized snakes on a 747.

  • Once Upon a Time in Hollywood

    A series of vignettes about 60’s Hollywood, very loosely based on what happened, with the reenactments being played by Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio. Psycho Tarantino fans get a couple of scenes of blood and gore to put butts in seats.

  • The Young Karl Marx

    Firebrands Talking at Rallies: The Movie. Tout le Welt parle eine hodgepodge of Zentral Europpéan languages, trés cosmopolitain.

  • The Exorcist

    The best film that contains the utterance: “Your mother sucks cocks in hell”.

  • The Blair Witch Project

    The grand-daddy of all found footage films. Squeezes emotional blood out of stones, creeks and tree trunks.

  • Flatliners

    Joel Schumacher does the atheist’s take on near death experiences. It’s all about what we do in life.

  • Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within

    This makes Japanese thematic bingo: atomic bomb metaphors, tentacles attacking nubile girls, high tech flying military machines. The fight between good and evil is embodied by Earth Gaia and Alien Gaia fighting for domination over Earth.

  • The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus

    God wants, Gilliam dreams, the Film is shot. Like stretching The Brothers Grimm into the present and into the religious.
