I hesitate to give this movie the title of "Worst Movie Ever," because it wasn't as long as Malick's "The Thin Red Line", and the dialog wasn't quite as bad. But it was the most consistently bad movie I have ever seen. At least TRL had glimpses of beauty and moments of excitement. "Last Man Standing" was sheer boredom. The action sequences were ridiculous and pointless, the plot was nonexistent, and the acting cannot be criticized because there wasn't any. Bruce Willis sleep-walked his way through this one. You would have to pay me at least $10 to sit through this movie again.
Crimewave (1985)Painful to watch.
27 February 1999
This movie is SO cartoony it is painful to watch, and I AM a fan of Raimi, Campbell and the Coens. The bad guys' dubbed voices are so annoying I considered just turning it off, which I NEVER do. Campbell was the only decent thing about this movie, and he has a relatively small role. If you are considering seeing this movie, just read the memorable quotes section of this website instead.
Office Space (1999)We've all had that job...
20 February 1999
The charm of Office Space is that everyone can identify with the characters' plight. We've all had "that job," whether it be a boring desk job, or a boring food-service job. Office Space takes this to the extreme, and says what you only WISH you could have said to your boss... The best part about the movie is that it's not as unintelligent as the previews made it out to be. It was billed as a "Beavis and Butthead" or "Waterboy" class movie, but actually managed to rise somewhat above that. While Office Space is funny, it's not nearly as good as "There's Something About Mary." It is very predictable, most notably the ending and a "hypnotherapy scene." Unlike TSAM, there is no really off-the-wall humor. Computer users might find fault with the strange hybrid of Macintosh and Windows computer systems used by Initech Industries. (This may have been done on purpose - it is really strange.) This film is not truly outstanding in any area except subject matter. It is a victory cry for the "cubicle farm." It is a fun evening at the movies, but will probably have the same impact on video.
