Fire up your turn tables, because Rock ‘n’ Roll High School is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the movie poster or the title above to download our review of the film,

featuring Sean “Hollywood” Hunting, aka Seanie Ramone.

Review in a Nutshell: A cultural artifact from a time before cell phones and the Internet, Rock ‘n’ Roll High School is the kind of raucous, exuberant, nonsensical comedy that couldn’t skate by with a PG rating these days. It’s Animal House by way of Grease…starring the Ramones.

Estelle Getty is Kind of a Magical Pixie Dream Girl.

Button up your diapers, because Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot is (probably not) the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the poster or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring Andrew of Collection DX.

Review in a Nutshell: Universally pilloried for Stallone’s poor performance, the terrible writing, and the lame jokes, Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot is not as bad as you would expect it to be, largely because Estelle Getty is quite a charming lady. This film plays like a forensic examination on how not to make a comedy, and for that reason I find it fascinating.

Coming from a time when cappuccino was an unknown thing, Hudson Hawk is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the DVD cover or the title above to download our review of the film,

featuring Sean “Hollywood” Hunting.

Review in a Nutshell: An R-rated adventure-comedy that vacillates between cartoonish violence and realistic brutality, Hudson Hawk is a movie that feels like a throwback to earlier heist films on one hand, yet was also seems at least ten years ahead of its time with its tale of Da Vinci conspiracy, mobsters, singing cat-burglars, and frothy Italian coffee drinks.

Sharpen your axes, because Kung Fu Hustle is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the DVD cover or the title above to download our review of the film featuring Sean “Hollywood” Hunting.

Review in a Nutshell: A raucous, satirical celebration of martial arts films, Kung Fu Hustle is populated by an eccentric cast of unlikely heroes and villains. Stephen Chow’s film is at once funny, sentimental, and thrilling, with an excellent mix of wirework, CG, and physical skill in the fight scenes.

Paul Chapman vs the Internet

Break out your Tumblr bingo card, because Scott Pilgrim vs the World may not be the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the movie poster or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring Tom and Rachel Pandich.

Review in a Nutshell: A technically adept film with outstanding visual composition and moments of genuine humor, Scott Pilgrim vs the World is nonetheless dragged under by an onslaught of unsympathetic characters. It is the triumph of style over substance.

Too Cool for Words

Hold onto your belts, because Pootie Tang is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Review in a Nutshell:  See, my damie, Pootie Tang don’t wa-da-tah to the shama cow… ’cause thats a cama cama leepa-chaiii, dig?

He Who Controls the Liquor Store Controls the World.

Strap on your moonboots and shine up your mohawk, because The FP is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the Drafthouse-exclusive poster or the movie title above to download our review of the film, featuring Daryl and Gerald of AnimeWorldOrder and Guy of ‘the Internet’.

Review in a Nutshell:  A high concept, low budget comedy masquerading as an Eighties genre film, The FP is great.  Let the haters hate; we love this film, yo.

U Mad, Bro?

Break out the lame Internet jokes, because Trollhunter is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the movie poster or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring Sean “Hollywood” Hunting.

Review in a Nutshell:  An extremely dry, Scandinavian comedy masquerading as a found-footage horror film, Trollhunter is a movie filled with environmental metaphors, social commentary, and trolls.

The Seduction of Shark-Man

Batten down the hatches, because Cabin Boy is (probably not) the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the movie poster or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring Sean “Hollywood” Hunting.

Review in a Nutshell:  Do not be fooled by that enticing poster art.  Cabin Boy is neither “hilarious” nor “fun”.  It will make your brain hurt, and not in a good way.

This movie contains:

Ice Monsters.

Cupcakes.

Russ Tamblyn, Siren of the Deep.

The Taste that Lingers?

Hold onto your sushi, because Wasabi is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the poster or the movie title above to download our review of the film, featuring Sean “Hollywood” Hunting.

NOTE:  Technically difficulties caused Sean’s end of the conversation to “clip” during recording.  We apologize for the sound quality in advance.

Review in a Nutshell:  Wasabi is an action-comedy with a zany sense of humor and a clean visual aesthetic.  The film doesn’t hold up well to repeated viewing, but a single viewing is definitely worth a look, especially if you liked the later films influenced by Wasabi, such as Crank and Shoot `Em Up.
