VIDEO: MOVIE: REVIEW: The Gamers: Dorkness Rising (2008)
4/5 stars, 7/10 from both of us.
A real D&D movie! That’s actually funny, too!
Super low budget though. I wouldn’t even call this a b-movie, I’d call it a c-movie. The acting is quite often bad and stilted, but you know what? We still enjoyed it a lot anyway!
Major nerdgasm this movie was.
YARD SALES: South Greensburg Puts Limits On Yard Sales
This. Is. Bullshit.
Wrong a long spiel here. It got deleted. Goddamnit.
Basically… it takes all kinds of assholes to do shit like this, and there will be people who read this and find it completely reasonable. To which I say: Fuck you.
COMEDY: PARODY: MY LITTLE PONY: Live-Action Trailer
What if Michael Bey directed a live-action My Little Pony movie? Hat tip to Tauna X.
VIDEO: MOVIE: REVIEW: Homo Erectus (2007)
Native ratings: Netflix:2.4/5 stars (guess for us=3.3), IMDB:3.4/10.
That’s pretty fucking low. So we knew this was going to be kind of retarded.
The “Stoned Age” title implies there’s going to be some kind of drug humor, but this is basically just a caveman comedy (think “Year One”, but worse, but with better cameos).
There are also a lot of notable people in the cast to help off-set the badness. It was weird seeing Ali Larter (the blonde schizo from Heroes, also in Final Destination 1) in a comedic role…
Or seeing Adrianne from Rocky, Carol Alt as an amazon queen, Gary Busey as a wizard, David Carradine in TWO roles, Ron Jeremy, and Tom Arnold (fortunately only a few seconds).
In the end, it was a mix of like and don’t like.
Carolyn: 2.6/5 stars, 5.0/10.
Clint:::::: 2.9/5 stars, 5.9/10.
VIDEO: MOVIE: REVIEW: The Negotiator (1998)
Surprised! I was expecting a mindless action flick, and then this turned out to be way better than we expected. In the same league as Training Day or L.A. Confidential. Lots of angry tension in this movie, and fortunately not too many laughably unrealistic scenes.
Carolyn: 4.7/5 stars, 8.7/10.
Clint: 4.6/5 stars, 8.6/10.
Native: 3.8/5 stars, 7.2/10. Netflix incorrectly thought we’d like this less than average (3.2). BUT SO DID I, so I can’t blame Netflix’s system here.
I was glad that I had forgotten the plot points from the trailer to this movie (which I probably only saw in the late 1990s), for that made it more fun to watch. Had no clue Kevin Spacey was going to be in this. Or Paul Giamatti. Bonus.
