    PARDON OUR DUST!

    Over however many weeks or months it takes, I'm going to be doing a total revamp of my ratings and rankings, year by year. My goal is to finish with a more accurate set of scores that places a greater value on true cinematic excellence. Given how many films I've seen, it's going to take a moment, so please bear with me.

    Bad Biology

    Bad Biology is your classic story of boy meets girl, except that girl has seven clits and boy has a literal monster cock. Directed by cult favorite Frank Hennenlotter and co-scripted by him and underground rap virtuoso R.A. the Rugged Man, the movie is gleefully dumb and as vulgar as it gets.

    Don't Look Up

    ★★★★½

    Apparently, in the year 2021, satire isn't allowed to be blunt and impactful anymore. The primary criticisms lobbed at Adam McKay's Don't Look Up are that it is allegedly smug and unsubtle. Well, yeah, that's sort of the point, guys. With what is clearly a passion project, McKay appears to have had no interest in calm restraint. Frankly, why the fuck should he? Using a potentially apocalyptic meteor as a stand-in for global warming and the anti-vax crowd, Don't Look…
