  • Mountaintop Motel Massacre

    Mountaintop Motel Massacre

    Technically not false advertising.

  • The Prey

    The Prey

    Was the relentless boredom this inspired worth it for the truly bleak and unearned misogyny of its final moments? Who cares?

  • Don't Say a Word

    Don't Say a Word

    This movie famously came out just a couple weeks after 9/11, but Brittany Murphy saying "I'll never tell" in it actually has a larger cultural footprint. Discussed on Episode 20 of The Suspense is Killing Us.

  • Fractured

    Fractured

    Health care in America really sucks.

  • Deceived

    Deceived

    I was deceived into thinking this would be good, har har. Discussed on Episode 18 of The Suspense is Killing Us.

  • Aladdin

    Aladdin

    A stunning new low for Guy Ritchie.

  • The Watcher

    The Watcher

  • Shaft

    Shaft

    "I can't have you walking around out there besmirching my name."

    Well you done fucked that right up. They turned this icon of black cinema into DADDY'S HOME, a sitcom with Shaft as a hilariously unwoke cartoon pussyhound. It's a disgrace.

  • Psycho IV: The Beginning

    Psycho IV: The Beginning

    AKA LAST NIGHT A DJ SAVED MY LIFE. Discussed on Episode 10 of The Suspense is Killing Us.

  • Velvet Buzzsaw

    Velvet Buzzsaw

    Absolutely insufferable, a smugly tin-eared alleged satire about (at least in part) visual art that can't even muster a single distinctive image, a successful humorous irony, or even a discernible point of view.

  • Ben Is Back

    Ben Is Back

    Completely absurd, patently offensive, very likely the stupidest and most naively silly drug movie since REQUIEM FOR A DREAM.

  • Free Solo

    Free Solo

    The idea that the threat of certain death makes this a more impressive achievement than the version that's merely still wildly dangerous and difficult but survivable is egregious, just patently absurd. But at least he gets to use it as an excuse to be a total dick that gets lionized here. This guy's not a samurai, he's a stupid asshole.
