    Scary Movie

    ★★

    On my quest to watch pretty much whatever Netflix uploads to its streaming service I had a go at the first three Scary Movie films. I don't want to appear as a snob but these films never really appealed to me and I didn't really enjoy it.

    I think Fight Club works best when you don't take it too seriously. As a brutal, aggressive attack on capitalist and consumerist culture it works brilliantly. Chuck Palahniuk's story is taken here and…
