  • Boogie Nights 1997

    ★★★★★ SilentDawn Watched by SilentDawn 26 Aug, 2014 30

    I don't know where to begin. I just don't. I have been watching some incredible movies lately, but this might have just topped them all. Instantly becoming my favorite PTA film, Boogie Nights is a grand and ambitious canvas of sex, violence, and drugs; all set within a changing landscape of characters and ideals.

    Paul Thomas Anderson. Everyone, a moment of reverence for this masterful filmmaker. In my eyes at least, he's the greatest director working today. He is also,…

  • Hunger 2008

    ★★★★½ Todd Gaines Watched by Todd Gaines 24 Aug, 2014 51

    Steve McQueen's feature film directorial debut starring the Fass as Bobby Sands and the painstaking hunger strike he led in one of the most powerful films and best directorial debuts of the 2000's. Bacon and eggs. Bloody knuckles. Smokin' in the snow. Fatty fat rat. Stripping without cool club music. Bloody scalp. Sean Bobbitt is the most underrated cinematographer on the planet. Prison mush is kinda like the mush you used to eat at the school cafeteria. Did any of…

  • Team America: World Police 2004

    ★★★★ Adam Cook Rewatched by Adam Cook 26 Aug, 2014 16

    Trey Parker and Matt Stone’s puerile satire has become a comedy time capsule yet despite its now dated targets this is still one of the sharpest, funniest and most inappropriate comedies of the new millennium. Team America: World Police is part Gerry Anderson homage and part fuck you to both the American far right and liberal left as Parker and Stone turn their attentions to mocking America’s gung-ho foreign policy under the Bush administration.

    Team America follows the exploits of…

  • Battle Royale 2000

    ★★★★★ Naughty Watched by Naughty 27 Aug, 2014

    Controversial Cult Classic, incredibly original and highly influential film that puts the Hunger Games to shame!

    It has more than earned its reputation for its violence and brutality but the real star of the show is the diverse range of emotions and fears (Good and Bad) that are all too human!

    Takeshi Kitano added some serious beaucoup depth and flavor to the film!

  • Under the Skin 2013

    ★★★★ Dragonknight Watched by Dragonknight 23 Aug, 2014 15

    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

  • Confession of Murder 2012

    ★★★½ Todd Gaines Watched by Todd Gaines 27 Aug, 2014 32

    The murder confession is only the beginning in this exciting South Korean chiller thriller. Oldboy-esque rain. Shattered glass borrowed from Mase. Uber-spooky surgical mask. When trying to stop a serial killer, throw a mop bucket at his ass. Spider-Man leap. Killers alway look more menacing in a top hat. Rihanna's umbrella (Ella ella eh eh eh). Bus chicken. Scars make you look more badass. Killer smirk. X-ray proof. Smokin' bullet. Murder book. Hand spit. Long piss. Wine glass whistle. Vengeance…

  • Guardians of the Galaxy 2014

    ★★★★½ DirkH Watched by DirkH 26 Aug, 2014 9

    I have limited knowledge of the comic Guardians of the Galaxy, but as a huge fan of the Silver Surfer I am more than familiar with the universe they reside in. So I have no fanboy attachment to this film or its characters whatsoever.

    So having said that, fucking hell this was fun.

    Gunn's film is overflowing with an anarchic energy that suited me to a T. Like I said, I can't really comment on how faithful his film is…

  • Dead Bang 1989

    ★★½ Todd Gaines Rewatched by Todd Gaines 28 Aug, 2014 22

    Don Johnson as a cop out to avenge the death of a fellow officer in this John Frankenheimer directed action adventure. Yo-Yo killer. High-tech computer. Ice cold Coors beer. The way people danced in the 80's. Tracksuit pimpin'. Flashlight beatdown. Sleepyhead Ron Jeremy? Shaggers? Tate Donovan way before he pissed off Jack Bauer. Christmas vomit. Domino motherfucker. The weird mix of hairstyles and personalities in the outlaw gang. William Forsythe's gap between his teeth. Who doesn't like sunshine and pussy?…

  • Apocalypse Now 1979

    ★★★★★ Naughty Watched by Naughty 28 Aug, 2014 5

    Between the stunning visuals, the pyro gone unabashedly wild, the characters like Kilgore who deliver epic lines like "I love the smell of napalm in the morning" to the tune of Wagner's Ride of the Valkyries I found I was completely overcome by the relentless onslaught of Francis Ford Coppola vision to the point of curling up in the fetal position due to sensory overload!

  • Punch-Drunk Love 2002

    ★★★½ CinemaClown Watched by CinemaClown 28 Aug, 2014 11

    Coming from the back-to-back success of Boogie Nights & Magnolia, writer-director Paul Thomas Anderson brings his sweeping cinematic vision to the genre of rom-com with his odd but original take which stars Adam Sandler in the lead role. And with that casting decision alone, the expectations went so low that it allowed this auteur the creative freedom he needed to film it as he pleases without the burden of dealing with previous films' reputations.

    Punch-Drunk Love tells the story of Barry…

  • The Good, the Bad and the Ugly 1966

    ★★★★ Travis Lytle Watched by Travis Lytle 26 Aug, 2014 11

    Considered by many to be one of the greatest Westerns of all time, Sergio Leone's "The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly" is a gritty, textured tale steeped in the tragedy of war and a character-driven sense of humor. The grit and sly, subtle humor make Leone's epic fully engrossing and widely entertaining.

    The film's premise is a streamlined thing of Western genre beauty: three men are on the trail of a treasure trove of gold buried in a cemetery.…

  • The Place Beyond the Pines 2012

    ★★★½ ScreeningNotes Watched by ScreeningNotes 22 Aug, 2014 15

    "If you ride like lightning, you're going to crash like thunder."

    Expectations are annoying. This is going to be another one of those weird reviews where I really liked the film, but no matter how much editing I do, my tone is going to sound disappointed because my expectations were too high. I really liked The Place Beyond the Pines. It was good. It just wasn't as good as I thought it would be.

    Our story opens with a long…

  • Raze 2013

    ★★½ Todd Gaines Watched by Todd Gaines 29 Aug, 2014 19

    It's The Running Man meets Death Race meets hardcore UFC with the ladies doing all the fighting in this violent as fuck tale of survival. Online dating. Bubble bath. Stun gun shocker. The Real Bride. Catfight. Bloody knuckles. Audrey Horne. Bitchin' beatdown. Gun slap. This is one of those films you wish John Vernon was still alive. He would've been perfect for this. Sociopathic killer. It's always nice to see Zoë Bell's face on screen. She has made so many…

  • Dawn of the Planet of the Apes 2014

    ★★★★ DirkH Watched by DirkH 26 Aug, 2014 7

    Two words keep popping up whenever I'm trying to form my opinion on this film.

    Even though.

    I've never been a huge fan of the Apes franchise, but Wyatt's Rise of the Planet of the Apes was a pleasant surprise with a clever script and some great visuals. And even though this sequel is a weaker film, it is still a cut above most big budget blockbusters.

    Even though.

    Even though Dawn has no real human characters, it manages to…

  • Blood and Bone 2009

    ★★ Todd Gaines Watched by Todd Gaines 28 Aug, 2014 21

    Spawn as Bone a recently released con who knows how to throw a punch. Kimbo the Bimbo. Piss chat. Bathroom beatdown. Redd Foxx's cousin. Real motherfuckers don't wear hair curlers. Hammerman? Kareem Said after Oz. Rufio the Lost Boy. Lights out motherfucker. Cock conversation. Everyone loves Wang Chung. Friendly puppy dogs. Fighting like a Haywire girl. Michael Jai White is one of the most underrated fighters in cinema. Extreme Tai Chi. Wasted ganja. Ho' chasin'. Motherfuckets? Blast from the past.…

  • Split Second 1992

    ★★★½ Todd Gaines Rewatched by Todd Gaines 23 Aug, 2014 23

    Rutger Hauer as a chain smokin' coffee addicted detective on the hunt for a brutal bootleg Dr. Lecter-esque serial killer in this futuristic Sci-Fi thriller. Ass wiggle. Nice doggie. Piss watcher. Titty shake. Pete Postlethwaite is the motherfucker and the awesomeness level is maxed out when Pete and Rutger share the screen. Detective Dick? Se7en-esque delivery. Did Rutger wear the same shades in The Hitcher? Either way, he wears shades like a boss. Why would you ask Rutger for his…

  • Guardians of the Galaxy 2014

    ★★½ Graham J Watched by Graham J 27 Aug, 2014 17

    The Letterbox'd Guardians of the Galaxy house party is already well under way by the time I turn up. From outside I can see you all dancing and having fun, smiling and doing funny impressions of Groot and Rocket. It's a great party. Everybody's drunk on James Gunn's Marvel gin and i'm stood outside stone cold fucking sober and wishing I was in a better mood.

    I think about ringing the doorbell but decide not to - i'd only bring…

  • Rear Window 1954

    ★★★★½ CinemaClown Watched by CinemaClown 21 Aug, 2014 10

    The year of 1954 saw director Alfred Hitchcock in sublime form as he delivered not one but two back-to-back masterpieces of its genre & cemented his status as the greatest filmmaker of thrillers & suspense. While one of the two was Dial M for Murder which even today remains one of his most enjoyable & entertaining works, the other is Rear Window which many consider to be one of the greatest films ever made.

    Rear Window perfectly demonstrates the impulse of morbid curiosity…
