Trance

Rating:  This movie is such an amazingly over-engineered pile of crap, it’s shocking that Danny Boyle didn’t Alan Smithee the shit out of it. Like…

The One I Love

Rating:  First we start with this amazingly creepy poster. I mean, Duplass looks like a serial killer and Moss looks like some awful painting…

The Village

The Village

Rating:  I must say that I was excited to see this one when the first trailers came out. It looked scary and suspenseful and…

Vanilla Sky

Vanilla Sky

Rating:  Where to start. Let’s start at the beginning–or is it the ending? Am I dreaming or am I awake? Am I maimed or…

Taking Lives

Taking Lives

Rating:  Not even a nude sex scene with Angelina Jolie can boost this stinker above one star. Shit, I’d give Gia an extra star…

Fight Club

Rating:  What else would you expect from the director of Se7en and The Game other than a really fucked up, dark movie? Well, Fight…

American Psycho

American Psycho

Rating:  Nothing used to make me laugh more in college than drunken group-readings of Brett Easton Ellis’ American Psycho. The man writes like a…
