  • Saw II

    The gorefest the series is known about.

  • The Headsman

    Here’s an obscure film that shouldn’t embarrass whoever participated on it.

  • Cursed

    Even though the premise is interesting and features womanwolves, which I think it’s a first, not worth it to take everything around it. Even if the werewolf flips the bird at the protagonist.

  • Elektra

    Another superhero film with a script that fits in a single page.

  • Dark Water

    Psycho (1960) thriller, Qu’est-ce que c’est? Na na na na na na na na not bad at all.

  • Brokeback Mountain

    More than just gay cowboys.

  • The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe

    Four kids, for kids, forked ids.

  • The Brothers Grimm

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

  • Stay

    Stylish take on the insanity POV genre. This film is a visual masterpiece. The range of camera trickery and editing skill is staggering.

  • V for Vendetta

    I love the credit to Anarchos Productions Inc.

  • Transporter 2

    Less transporting gets done since the last time.

  • Sahara

    Uncharted: Matt’s Deception. The reason why there’s no Uncharted film (yet) is because this exists.

  • Constantine

    Yes, this is a run of the mill 90’s anti-hero, with mild The Exorcist flavour. But I still love it, Holy Wars have never been so snarky.

  • Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit

    A classic British tale: working class hero with dough from his job battles a penniless upper class twit for the “melons” of a girl. Many-a cheese types are consumed.

  • Era Uma Vez um Arrastão

    How to spin nothingness into a far-right nativist rallying cry against foreigners, courtesy of a pliant press on a summer weekend.

  • Keeping Mum

    A touching family story, with extra murders. Nanny McPhee or Miss Marple or Mary Poppins as murderesses.

  • Syriana

    This seems like one of those roman-à-clef, based on an old spook’s memoirs.
