Party Monster

I’m a sucker for anything labeled as “BASED ON A TRUE STORY.” Especially if it’s the story of a real life killer – Monster, The Young Poisoner’s Handbook, Cannibal! The Musical, etc…except for those damn Lifetime Movies for Women bullshitty ones. You know the ones I mean – the ones with a looong hyphenated title […]

Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle

I didn’t think that I would ever see a more incongruous act than Doogie Howser, M.D. doing a fatality on an evil henchman, but I’d have to say that Doogie Howser snorting coke off a girl’s bum, while hanging out of the sun roof of a moving car, takes the cake. Far be it from […]

Marihuana

What. The. Fuck. All I kept thinking throughout this whole god-forsaken film, was “What. The. Fuck.” It has to be one of the stupidest, most ill-informed pieces of anti-drug propaganda that I have ever seen. That being said, it was fucking hilarious. A precursor to the infamous Reefer Madness, Marihuana is the sad story of […]

Freddy Vs. Jason

Where was all the blood? There was more blood in the credit sequence than in the whole rest of the movie! I’ve been waiting for this movie for almost a decade and that’s all the blood I get? Regardless, it was a decent flick. It was about what I had expected. Freddy was his usual […]

Very Bad Things

Fucking shit. I have wanted to see this since it came out. My sister went and saw it and of course she told me about the hooker getting headstabbed with the towel hook. Every review mentioned it and I saw just that scene a few times while flipping channels. But I actually sat down and […]

Permanent Midnight

Being a writer for the TV show Alf would drive me to take drugs, too. Based on the book of the same name, Permanent Midnight is the story of TV writer Jerry Stahl and his struggle with heroin addiction. And what a struggle it is. He starts out filching his roomates Percodan, is introduced to […]

Nowhere

Murder with a can of Campbell’s Tomato Soup. It is a scene that would leave Andy Warhol in fits of ecstasy. Anyway, Araki’s favorite piece of ass, James Duval stars in this day in the life tale of Dark, a boy with many problems – a noncommittal bisexual girlfriend (sexy Rachel True, also known as […]

Frankenhooker

When Jeffrey Franken’s girlfriend, Elizabeth Shelley, is killed by his automated lawn mower, he decides to bring her back to life using the body parts of dead prostitutes. That’s the plot in a nutshell. Plot is not important in Frankenhooker. Bad special effects are what’s important. Lame jokes are what’s important. This film has what’s […]

Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas

As I walked into the theater on opening night, I noticed two things – first, somehow this film hadn’t sold out as I thought it would and second, two different showings of ‘The Horse Whisperer’ had. This could only mean one thing – I was in Plano, Texas. By the time that the previews began, […]

Flirting With Disaster

When this film came out in the theaters, I remember seeing the commercials and thinking that I wanted to go see it. But I never did…I just never got around to it. Most people never got around to it…the most attention that the film got was from the soundtrack. It was that song that was […]
