Kill Me Later

If I found out that my lover’s wife was pregnant on the same day that my goldfish died, I might just become suicidal too. …And a suicidal woman is exactly the best person for a bank robber to choose as a hostage, right? If you love wacky hijinks, it is! Okay, the hijinks aren’t exactly […]

The Beaver Trilogy

Before there was Rubin, there was the Orkly Kid. Thank god for eBay, or I may never have gotten a chance to see this unique piece of film history. It is a bootleg of the Superstar caliber! (Superstar is the Karen Carpenter story told with Barbie dolls – I’ll get around to reviewing it someday.) […]

Kissed

The first intelligent film about necrophilia. I remember when this film came out, there was a trailer for it before The Pink Flamingos re-release. I always wanted to go see it, but it was out of the Ciné before I could get around to seeing it. But thanks to the The Independent Film Channel, I […]

Ma Vie En Rose

You gotta give it to the French. They know how to jerk the heartstrings. I can’t believe that this film made me cry. Yes, you heard me right – I cried like a fuckin’ tiddy baby. And I’m not even ashamed to say so. I really didn’t think that it would affect me this much, […]

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 […]

Gummo

Glue sniffin’, cat killin’ country folk – kind of reminds me of growing up in small town Texas. Okay, it wasn’t quite that bad where I grew up…there were parts of town where you couldn’t have dogs because they would end up as fajitas in a week…a friend of mine almost bought an UZI in […]

Bottle Rocket

Is it me, or does Owen Wilson remind you of a young Dennis Hopper? That nose has been broken way too many times for someone that young. Not only his appearance, but his voice and acting style remind me of Easy Rider. I thought that when I saw him in Armageddon, which was way before […]

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 […]

Clerks

Stupid day jobs. Who hasn’t had their share of stupid day jobs? Clerks is the tale of a day in the life of two guys with really stupid day jobs. Dante (apt name – his job is hell) works in a Stop & Rob and Randall works in a video store. These are the two […]

The Living End

This film made me wish that I was a gay man. A gay man with AIDS. A psychotic gay man with AIDS. Two gay guys find out that they have AIDS, then they find each other. One is insane and the other one is neurotic. It’s like ‘The Odd Couple’ minus the humor, plus sexual […]
