Arthur C. Clarke could not have written a more cinematic novel. (Witness the many scenes/lines used verbatim.)

Up (in 3D)

It soars! It's uplifting! Only a few downer moments! (Trust me, there were far worse puns than this.)

Doctor Who: Season 3

What I will miss about William Hartnell playing the Doctor is his unflappable nature in the face of trouble. Are they all like that, and did he start it?

Run Fatboy Run

Pegg does much better in over-the-top spoofs. Too much narrative in this one.

MASH: Season 10

Always so weird to see guest stars on MASH. There's Joe Pantoliano, looking about 12 years old.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season 6

Hands down best scene is Giles laughing hysterically at the Season 6 machinations in the last episode. Good they can make fun of themselves.

24: Season 7

They sure took their sweet time explaining Jack's motives. I wish it hadn't taken the American people to pressure them into doing it.

Die Hard

Could there be a more stereotypical action film? And by that I mean, so full of stereotypes?

Star Trek

Too many references to old action films (Matrix, Star Wars, Jurassic Park). Consequence: not as unique as it should have been.

Wendy and Lucy

Beware animal lovers, this film will raise your anxiety level. Try to remember it's not really the point.

Away We Go

One of the most genuinely funny movies I've seen. And shouldn't Allison Janney be given a lifetime achievement award by now?

Lost: Season 5

Not the most stellar season. A most provoking end, though, as we gear up to get our questions truly answered.

Dollhouse: Season 1

Remember, it's Whedon, you need to watch at least half the season before it starts getting good. (Episode 7 = fave. Episode 13 = waiting...)

So chaps my ass when the end of a movie isn't in keeping with the rest of it.


Less than a handful of scenes different from the comic book = not worth the 3 hours.

Observe and Report

Above quota: # of penises shown. Below quota: socially responsible endings.

Alone in the Dark

There are so many things you could say about this piece of crap. First and foremost, though, Tara Reid as a scientist?!
