  • Nick of Time

    90 minutes of runtime with a one-line script

  • Species

    Fucking Predator, literally.

  • Four Rooms

    Regular Tarantino crap, even though he only directed a fourth of this. His lousiness infects other directors.

  • Se7en

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

  • Living in Oblivion

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

  • GoldenEye

    Modern (about my age) Bond doesn’t really deviate from the formula. An above average action film.

  • Braveheart

    An Australian plays William Wallace, another Hollywood stunt casting choice. Robert Bruce is a minor character, but he was more important overall.

  • Cutthroat Island

    Who would have thought, Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl is a mere variation on this epic tale of piracy.

  • Rumble in the Bronx

    A batshit insane old-school Jackie Chan film, but with a larger budget. The freaking hovercraft…

  • Mortal Kombat

    Paul W. S. Anderson cuts his teeth on he does best: silly videogame adaptations with atrocious CGI and Z-list actors. The only film involving Traci Lords where people get to keep their clothes on (except Blade?).

  • Johnny Mnemonic

    The old Gibsonian universe in a nutshell (with different names): Keyboard Cowboys; 320GB of hot RAM; Street Samurai; Muscle for the Yakuza; Ono-Sendai decks; Tessier-Ashpool corporations; AI with Swiss citizenship.

  • Strange Days

    Strange for cops to murder black people on a random traffic stop? Over spurious reasons, for nothing? Yeah, the good old 90’s…

  • Heat

    A slow Crash, out of a gun battle. It’s really all about the heists.

  • The Net

    Sandra Bullock plays Wolfenstein on her Mac, while in Liberal US, system hacks you!

  • Hackers

    Hack the Planet! Hack the Planet!

  • Tank Girl

    Riot Girl is tight! Meek girl learning to face her oppressors is goddamn tight! Kangaroo-men are hopping mad!

  • Assassins

    Duelling assassins working for a unknown messager on the internet. When yet another female criminal enters the fray, their allegiances twist and turn. But the bad guy is still the bad guy, victoria o muerte.

  • Ghost in the Shell

    Part of the holy trinity of classical anime: this, Akira and Cowboy Bebop. Innocence is also great.

  • Die Hard with a Vengeance

    Starts with a incredible scene and manages to hold up pretty well through the whole film.
