    ★★★ Bailey T. Steen Added by Bailey T. Steen 66

    For the record, because this movie is still being discussed, and I think it's best to restore some sanity to modern film dialogue despite not being too fond of this movie, I believe Everybody Wants Some shouldn't be so quickly labeled "sexist".

    Calling it sexist, by definition, implies there's a malice towards a supposed lesser sex, which Everybody Wants Some doesn't make the case for. There's no power position hierarchy between the sexes here. The guys roll around in mud…

    ★★★★ Todd Gaines Rewatched by Todd Gaines 19 Aug, 2016 46

    Superbad has to be one of the best "day in the life" movies of the 2000's. It's funny as fuck one second, and fuckin' pathetically sad the next. You're not sure if you want to cheer for Evan and Seth, or knock them the fuck out. The soundtrack is one big party. Ted Nugent's Stranglehold, Van Halen's Panama, and Biggie Smalls' Big Poppa stand out, and when you hear each song, you immediately think of the scene the song correlates…

    ★★★½ Sarah Jane Added by Sarah Jane 19

    My original review of this was very short because, although I enjoyed the film, I didn't think it warranted any kind of lengthy write-up. I still don't think it does, really but based on everything that has been said about it over the past two months I just wanted to say a few words on how I viewed it.

    I enjoyed the movie for what it was; a movie about college male baseball players in 1980. Period. Linklater WAS a…

    93/100

    Director's Cut

    Just totally, utterly, unabashedly irresponsible movie-making by an egoistical madman; a deep sea epic in hangout mode, soaked in Spielbergian sentiment but hardwired through the frazzled jargon of James Cameron. If someone says the guy isn't a humanist, plop that imbecile down 'Clockwork Orange' style and show them The Abyss. Each moment thrives and dances within barriers between safety and death, and masculine exteriors break away into protraits of vulnerability and love. So touching, so dreamy and…

    65/100

    Viewed the NC-17 cut - shown only on a UK station - which my sister was kind enough to record for me, and it's pretty decent, adding little spurts of character moments here and there along with a bunch of answers for things glossed over in the TC. Also included: a freaky cat. Still don't give a shit about the first 30 minutes or so, but once it ramps up, the staging is as delirious, gnarly, and gooey as…

    The secret heart of neoliberal technocracy resides in the commodification of everyday life as an administered product, an experience bought into by wealth and status, but also by a belief that such an administered reality is both desirable and possible, the precondition for and the inevitable result of universal corporatism. That this is not the case is or would be self-evident if one would care to look at all of that which does not easily fit into such a fiction,…

    It's all so tragic, isn't it? "War!", the opening crawl proclaims, but Lucas captures battles in multiple spaces besides the physical, evoking primal feelings through ancient tragedy and the void of conflicting ideologies haunted by personal agenda. While the conclusion of Attack of the Clones - highlighted by a smash cut from the early Empire to Anakin and Padme's secret wedding - sings to where our heart lies, Revenge of the Sith orchestrates a symphony of broken, corrupt civilization…

    Okay, this was pretty damn ridiculous, even by my standards.

    This is the most 80s movie I think I've ever seen. We got grumpy Kurt Russell looking (rightfully) confused a good amount of the time, a more wires than the average puppet show, a lot of weird creatures, a synth score, not one, but two leading ladies in need of help, and a ton of Chinese gods and regular people using lighting and smoke in order to solve most of…

    The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension 1984

    ★★★★ Todd Gaines Watched by Todd Gaines 21 Aug, 2016 13

    Here's the quintessential PG cool movie. Peter Weller is a brain surgeon / scientist / race car driver / rockstar / piano playing / bandana wearing badass. Only the 80's could bring us a movie like this. Yet, to me, it feels about 30 years ahead of its time.

    I think every single person involved in this movie smoked some serious drugs. Jeff Goldblum dresses like Howdy Doody. John Lithgow sells crazy. The baddies look like bootleg versions of Admiral…

  • Resident Evil

    Resident Evil 2002

    ★★★★ Arielrocks5 Watched by Arielrocks5 21 Aug, 2016 60

    Paul Thomas, I mean, Paul W.S. Anderson's first crack at the "Resident Evil" franchise makes for a breezy, straight forward, unintentionally hilarious but never the less, solid action zombie flick.

    Yeah, it's dumb, trashy, and doesn't make any form of sense for the most part, yet it so entrances in its own style that it's hard not to find some level of charm in the whole picture.

    I haven't played the games personally due to lack of interest and money,…

    I've given up trying to put down Christopher Nolan. After revisiting only two of his films, I'm beginning to realize that perhaps I was a little too blinded by his overwhelming popularity to realize that I still really loved his films. Sure, not all of them are acclaimed masterpieces worthy of topping The Godfather, but I'd be lying if I said I don't find him to be one of the most fascinating blockbuster directors working today. Inception is his most…

    Do not go gentle into that good night,
    Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
    Rage, rage against the dying of the light.
    Though wise men at their end know dark is right,
    Because their words had forked no lightning they
    Do not go gentle into that good night.
    Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright
    Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,
    Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

    ½ Arielrocks5 Watched by Arielrocks5 23 Aug, 2016 17

    Never before have I entered a state of never ending blankness than I have with "Ratchet & Clank". From minute one to the beginning of the ending credits, I stared at my screen with zero emotional reaction outside of the occasional chuckle.

    This isn't a movie. It's a glorified cut-scene. Actually, fuck that! Cut-scenes within the original games at least had a sense of wit, character development, genuine emotion, and you know? Were actually good.

    No, this is a glorified straight…

    Observe and Report 2009

    ★★★★ Todd Gaines Rewatched by Todd Gaines 20 Aug, 2016 25

    A mall cop's obsession with catching a pervert. That's pretty much the plot of Jody Hill's Observe and Report. We find somewhat medicated, Seth Rogen as the obsessive mall cop. He's everything you would expect in a Jody Hill movie. He's a loser. He lives with his alcoholic mother. He has no filter. He doesn't know how to read body language from the opposite sex. He suffers from anger management issues. However, through Hill's sharp writing, and Rogen's naturally ability…

    Looping music, stock footage, actors filmed on different days, more wandering shots of the forest than "The Revenant" and Eric Roberts voice work after doing it in his closet put over a cat with lip stinks made in Microsoft Paint.

    What more could you want in a movie?
