Why You Never What to Finish Out Your Days in a Nursing Home!, 9 October 2005
8/10

This movie could be so close to the true that it's scare. The characters are amazingly realistic. The people in nursing homes are so forgotten that their environment become a separate existence, a world apart from reality. Some people may feel that some of the treatment of the patients are cruel, but you have to weigh that against the loneliness of having no one notice you for days. Give this film a try. Then talk to your kids about how your never want to be in a nursing home, under any circumstances. Because of the use of pot, this film is not appropriate for younger people. Remember that the care takers get minimum wage and would be better of working at McDonalds or Burger King.

Chupacabras Straight-up, with a Twist!!, 6 June 2005
7/10

This movie has you guessing what's happening to who and why from the very beginning. Very clever plot and too clever to include spoilers. Stick with it, and you will be surprised. Enjoy the authentic California gold rush settings and a very interesting cast. Electro-shock therapy for pain and profit, gives Jeremy (Jason Michael Fong) a buzz, but does he really know anything worth 20,000 volts of P.G.& E.'s finest vintage AC/DC. The wide variety of characters provides someone for everyone, especially if you like blonde cuteys. Can anyone go up against the Chupacabras and survive? You'll have to see this one through to find out!! mrpentax gives at least one thumb up (or maybe seven, if I were a Chupacabra).

From a Flat Earth to Black Holes via the Big Bang, 7 February 2004
10/10

This is an incredible piece of work. Each step of the way is carefully explained: who and why it is correct, who and why the competing theories were wrong, and how it lead to the next step. What's the value of knowing that there are galaxies millions of light years away and black holes?: Just knowing. And, if you can identify with that, you have to see this series.

Not Just a Black Crime Movie, but a Crime Movie Triumph!, 23 January 2004
10/10

I can not believe so few people have seen this movie. It is a terrific film. It has all the action, intrigue, double and triple crosses, and tragedy anyone could ask for. The plot and its development is a work of art. It is first class. The characters are so real and the depth of their portrayals goes well beyond most crime films, including the Godfathers. This is a film you must see if you every watched a single episode of The Sopranos, and liked it.

Is Woody Allenism Contagious, 23 January 2004
8/10

This is a film that drives you nuts with its ridiculous plot, but at the same time is sheer genius. Amazingly, Jason Biggs becomes, an exact replica, young Woody Allen, and he does it so well. To the viewer, the film is an exercise in total frustration. None of the characters can get their lives straightened out, even at the total expense everyone around them. You will like this movie more 12 hours after you have seen it, than when the credits roll. See it.

This Movie Proves: NOTHING is sacred!!, 23 January 2004
6/10

If you hold even one thing to be sacred, do not see this film. It defiles everything you might believe in literally from before the cradle to after grave. This movie is the sickest puppy of all sick puppy films. It is a shock and minute and you better be ready for everything from dead babies to cannibalism, sometimes put in an attempted comedy wrapper. So, if your skin is feel particularly thick some evening, this is the film for you. The character played by Perez and her lover are so evil, it's clear from the beginning you will not be able to predict their next atrocity. This movie leaves you in one of two states: 1. can't wait until it is over; or 2. can't wait to see it again. In any case you will be amazed and shocked, I guarantee it.

Pray Your Wife Doesn't Do "This" to YOU!, 5 November 2001
8/10

Very well done Film Noir. When you think you have it figured out, you will soon find out you are WRONG. This piece has an earthy realism that really gets you hooked. You wouldn't wish what happens to Vic on your worst enemy. A very watchable film.

Worth Every Minute You Invest in Watching It., 20 April 2001
10/10

Absolutely stunning account of America's journeys to the Moon and back. It will fill you with sadness, pride, joy, and admiration. If you lived it, do your kids a favor and have them watch it. It is one of those events that will be remember for all of history.

A million bullets and a bucket of blood, 31 October 2000
6/10

This movie will give adults bad dreams. I wish I had a buck for every bullet that was fired in this movie. If you have any value of human life, this film will sicken you. It is way too bloody and whatever the moral story, it's killed by friendly fire.
