The Hottie And The Nottie Review

The Hottie and the Nottie is a clichéd film that manages to be both predictable and offensive. That's OK, people who rent The Hottie and the Nottie won't be looking for high art or a subtle satire on the superficiality of the West Coast. In fact if you're thinking of renting The Hottie and the Nottie, there is likely only one reason: You're hoping to enjoy the movie because it is awful, the idea being that movies can be so bad they actually become enjoyable. It is a little like getting a kick out of watching Plan 9 from Outer Space.

The Hottie and the Nottie follows the travails of Nate Cooper (Joel Moore) as he tries to woo the "hottest girl in L.A.," Cristabelle Abbot (Paris Hilton). Nate's pursuit of Cristabelle is aided by his first-grade friend Arno Blount, played with enthusiasm by Greg Wilson, who happens to have a three-inch thick file on Cristabelle. Arno lives with his mother, so one surmises he has plenty of time to devote to cataloging first grade friends.

Spiral Review

Wow, a psychological thriller that's not based on the Japanese horror movie of the same name? Impossible!

While Spiral may not be the most enthralling film ever made, it isn't a bad example of a creeper, telling us a tale of a troubled loner who works in telemarketing but who may just find a chance at love when a sensitive girl comes along. Joel Moore (who co-wrote and co-directed) embodies creepy to a fault, so seeing his Mason bum around his bohemian apartment, get chewed out by his supervisor, and spend hours sketching portraits of women don't really surprise us. A twist comes with Amber (Amber Tamblyn), who lets him sketch her, then gets closer, and eventually ends up under the covers with Mason. It's hard to explain what happens next without ruining the ending, but there's some concern that Mason may have a violent streak hiding just under the surface as well as the possibility that Amber may be a figment of Mason's imagination.

Hatchet Review

Touted as the next big thing in horror by everyone from Kane Hodder to Dee Snider, Adam Green's Hatchet comes pre-packaged by the director himself as a return to "Old-School American Horror." What does he mean by "old-school?" The facts that the main dismemberer in Green's film is played by Hodder, the man behind Jason Vorhees, and that Freddy Kruger himself, Robert Englund, makes a cameo in the early minutes of the film give it some street cred in the crowded world of iconic horror (Friday the 13th, A Nightmare on Elm Street).

Green's agenda is to return the horror genre to a lean mixture of gore and humor, as well as reestablishing the notion of horror iconography. His icon is Victor Crowley, a double-decker-sized mutant hillbilly relegated to the swamps of New Orleans. As you might suspect, Victor finds himself in the mood for a festive homicide when a boatload of tourists on a haunted swamp tour get stuck near his burnt-out family shack. Soon enough, Victor begins tossing limbs and torsos every which way while impaling and mutilating any body that has the good fortune of staying in one piece. It becomes the charge of a vengeful girl (Tamara Feldman) and a nerdy so-and-so (Joel Moore) to escape Crowley's clutches, heartbeats intact.

The Dukes Of Hazzard: The Beginning Review

It seems that all bad movies deserve a direct-to-DVD sequel, so why not a sloppy prequel to the film version of The Dukes of Hazzard, purporting to tell the "beginning" of the Duke boys story?

Along this 95-minute ride we'll find out where the General Lee came from (dredged from a lake), why everybody hates Boss Hogg (because he's a money-grubbing jerk), and how Daisy got so hot (she just had to take off her glasses and give her wardrobe a trim). If these are burning questions that keep you up at night then, by all means, purchase this DVD immediately.

Grandma's Boy Review

Grandma's Boy is incredibly stoopid. Yes, that kind, with two o's in place of a u. The kind of funny wholly dependent on the amount of chronic you've inhaled prior to screening, that kind of funny that 12-year-old boys wet their pants over, that kind of funny that really just isn't that funny outside of the movie theatre.

I can see where they were going with this movie. The whole advertising campaign, in fact the entire production, is an attempt to sell the film as a late '70s, early '80s teen sex comedy. The poster art is reminiscent of the cartoonish painted posters for films like Animal House, even the title credits are superimposed against clips of Space Invaders (or is that Galaga?).
