  • The Carrier 1988

    ★★★½ Watched 29 Oct, 2014

    Read the entire review at Modern Superior.

    If you’ve ever wanted to see a movie filled with warring factions of Glad garbage bag-clad townsfolk, murdering each other for kittens, boy do I have the movie for you!

    Written and Directed by Nathan J. White – who never went on to write or direct anything else – The Carrier is one of those movies that you are simultaneously befuddled by and engrossed with.

  • Fletch 1985

    ★★★★★ Added

    Michael Ritchie's Fletch is an endlessly re-watchable -- and quotable -- comedy/action flick with a solid plot adapted from the book of the same name. The kind of movie that I can watch any day of the year (and in any mood) and I'll love it no matter what.

  • A Talking Cat!?! 2013

Did I mention he recorded his voice-over in a garbage can? Did I mention David DeCoteau directed it? AVClub describes this movie as a talking animal movie meets The Room - pretty apt. I won't lie, I laughed pretty hard at this pile of crap a couple times.
