Diary of the Dead

I was starting to get bored until the Dynamite-tossing Amish guy showed up. Even then, it was still boring in between zombie attacks – probably because the characters kept talking and talking and talking about their predicament. As I’ve said before, it’s not that Existentialism has no place in Zombie movies…it just comes off as […]

C.S.A.: The Confederate States of America

What if the South had won? NASCAR would be the only sport in the country, McDonald’s would serve nothing but ribs and Larry the Cable Guy would be President. (Or maybe we would be something resembling Idiocracy?) Oh, that shit’s not in the movie, I’m just guessing. C.S.A. is a mockumentary that takes the subject […]

Pauly Shore is Dead

Pauly Shore has finally learned what the rest of us have known for over a decade – Pauly Shore sucks. Don’t get me wrong, there are plenty of comedians that suck more than Pauly Shore. Carrot Top is the first one that comes to mind, who coincidentally also stars in Pauly Shore is Dead as […]

Waiting for Guffman

My life is complete – I can now lay down and die, for I’ve finally seen Waiting for Guffman. It take a lot of practice to suck. I’d say it probably takes even more practice than being awesome. And every single small town thespian in this film must have practiced A LOT…because they all stink. […]

This Is Spinal Tap

I’ve finally filled another fundamental gap in my film viewing history – I’ve finally seen Spinal Tap. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve seen enough VH1 Countdown shows to already be familiar with all the funniest bits in Spinal Tap. I knew all about knobs that go up to 11, foil wrapped zucchinis and tiny Stonehenge. […]

A Mighty Wind

Wha’ Happened? I think my expectations were too high. Best in Show was so goddamned funny that I was expecting A Mighty Wind to be a howler as well. Don’t get me wrong, it was pretty funny, but tears were never running down my face as I was doubled over in laughter. I guess the […]

Best in Show

I haven’t seen Waiting for Guffman, but I still think it’s hilarious. Don’t tell anyone, but I haven’t seen This is Spinal Tap either. I actually saw this in the theater when it first came out, but I was suffering from a bit of writer’s block back then, it happens to us all. Why can’t […]

Drop Dead Gorgeous

April has been after me for years to see it, I wish I had listened sooner. I laughed so hard, I almost cried. I am not big on documentary style films, they became a little too fashionable after The Blair Witch Project, but there is no other way this film would have worked. Being able […]

The Blair Witch Project

Scariest film I have ever seen…even scarier than Showgirls. No one gets impaled, no one gets decapitated, there isn’t even any blood (okay, there’s the tiniest, tiniest bit). But let me tell you, sticks and stones can do a lot more than break your bones…they can scare the ever living shit out of me and […]
