Bats Review


Bad
As anyone who knows me will tell you, I don't shut up often. But, when the lights go down, my mouth clamps shut... Unless its a complete Z-grade movie like Bats.

Bats is one of those movies where you have to get popcorn just to throw it at the screen. It is one of those movies where you have to make fun of those little kids scared out of their wits three rows behind you on the other side of the theatre.

A Midnight Clear Review


Excellent
Keith Gordon's scant few films -- including Mother Night, Waking the Dead, and A Midnight Clear -- rank among some of the biggest cult fan pics ever made. For my money, Clear is his best work, a scathing anti-war tale set in the final days of WWII, when both sides were scared shitless. A group of Germans attempts to surrender to an American intelligence patrol, with disastrous consequences. An all-star cast makes it wholly worthwhile.

S.F.W. Review


Weak
S.F.W. stands for "So Fuckin' What?"--the personal credo of one Cliff Spab (Stephen Dorff), a Generation X nobody who becomes famous after being held hostage for 36 days in a Fun Stop convenience store.

1995's Gen X movie hits the scene quite early, and compared to its forerunners (Reality Bites, Singles, Slacker), it doesn't come close to capturing the spirit of the generation. The movie has some entertaining moments and interesting supporting characters, but in the end it is generally obnoxious, relying on a loud punk soundtrack and far too many cliches about life.

Meet The Deedles Review


Weak
Ridiculous, English-bastardizing live action Disney flick about surfers exiled to Wyoming, where they save Yellowstone. Too dumb for adults, too bad-habit-inducing for children.
