  • Pedro e Inês

    Cloudier Atlas. The same story, slightly tweaked through the ages, entwined between themselves.

  • The Trail of the Pink Panther

    Clip show with some of Clouseau’s best gags, with a timid test for a female version played by Joanna Lumley. It might have worked, but they got cold feet, probably.

  • The Revenge of the Pink Panther

    The godfather, fantastique. The “bimps”, always the “bimps”. The Hong Kong stuff is ridiculous.

  • The Numbers Station

    Still Bourne. Ripoff in the worst possible way from specific Bourne films. The climatic music is a naked ripoff from 28 Weeks Later. Not even worth to waste time on the credits.

  • The Terminator

    I like this “modern” The Outer Limits adaptation, it’s very old school.

  • Conan the Destroyer

    Conan does The Hidden Fortress, while being driven by a girl, and hearing the lamentations of that woman.

  • The Return of the Pink Panther

    More Closeau antics, female cat burglars and Dreyfus losing him mind.

  • The Pink Panther Strikes Again

    This is more Austin Powers than caper films.

  • Flatliners

    The horrible horror retelling. Poor Joel Schumacher, his film was put under and never came back, the weight of all the sins dragged this to the abyss of generic jump scares and power failures.

  • The Big Lebowski

    That’s just, like, your opinion, man. The Dude abides. Nobody fucks with the Jesus. This is what happens when you fuck a stranger in the ass! You human paraquat!

  • The Island of Dr. Moreau

    I’m pretty sure H. G. Wells didn’t write a book discussing eugenics (the latest scientific theories at the time) with the intent of having so many people wrestling with tigers, lions, and bears. That part completely overshadows the rest of the plot about the modern day Prometheus.

  • Trafic

    Tati 4 life. One of the best road movies ever.

  • The Fountain

    Even mainstream Aronofsky is great. The classical themes of Christianity and Environmentalism are always present.
