  • Black Swan

    Black Swan

    ★★★★

    ”I just want to be perfect.”

    Score: 75/100

    THE BOTTOM LINE: The two most ignorant responses I hear in regards to Black Swan are—Women: ”I don’t want to see some lesbo sex movie, even if it’s about ballerinas” and men: ”I don’t want to see some gay movie about ballerinas, even if it has lesbo sex.” What a shame, because (1) the “lesbo sex” scene is several times more haunting and repulsive in context than sexy or alluring, not to…

  • Duck, You Sucker

    Duck, You Sucker

    ★★★½

    ”Where there's revolution there's confusion, and when there's confusion, a man who knows what he wants stands a good chance of getting it.”

    Score: 64/100

    THE BOTTOM LINE: If Duck, You Sucker is most ubiquitously considered your ‘worst’ movie (excl. Colossus of Rhodes), then odds are you’ve had a pretty good career.

    Pulp Fiction

    ★★★★★

    ”Oh, oh, YOU ready to blow? Well, I’m a mushroom- cloud-layin’ motherfucker, motherfucker! Every time my fingers touch brain, I’m Superfly T.N.T., I’m the Guns of the Navarone!

    Score: 100/100 (no change)

    THE BOTTOM LINE: Unable to commit to a new movie, I decided to pop…

  • Sing Street

    Sing Street

    ★★★½

    ”No woman can truly love a man who listens to Phil Collins.”

    Score: 69/100

    THE BOTTOM LINE: I have a weird fetish for British/English-style humor and I also enjoy most English music from the 1980’s, so Sing Street already had a leg up before I even pushed play. Funny, charming, relatively dry, and always full of energy, it’s one of those movies that’s just fun to watch, plain and simple. Our lead character, Conor (played by Ferdia Walsh-Peelo), was rather…
