Latest Movie Review
This film is a con. Excepting a few scenes the whole movie is an illustrated guide to analogue horror. There is minimal context and no motivation for the film's bag of shabby, shameless tricks. It's a long, boring movie with some terrible film-making. The film's highlights, like the scene with the mother telling her confused and frightened child to look under the bed and whatever that moment was with #2035 model Fisher Price chatter telephone that is the best character, suggest Ball can direct a film if he sets his mind to it, so why did he take the easy way out and make an interminable creepypasta?

The Death of Stalin Review comment
This movie was truly amazing! I laughed my butt off, especially at Steve Buscemi & Jeffrey Tambor's interactions.
Did you also like "Wag the Dog" and "In the Loop"?

Team America, Fight Club and They Live don't belong on here. They have merit. Pacific Rim was great! How did it end up on your list?

Seventh Son Review comment
The film looks pretty unremarkable despite the cast. I'll be steaming this... if it's lucky.

The Rover Review comment
I agree that the movie was to slow and plodding to hold up it's weak premise. It's trying to be Nicholas Refn's Drive, but it's only half as deep, and about a fourth as exciting.

Exorcist II: The Heretic Review comment
Amazon would have to pay me at least $5 for me to watch this again. Just a terrible movie.

Another underrated film that not everyone appreciates. Surprisingly funny and provocative.

Dial M for Murder Review comment
Nice review. Not as popular as North by N., Rear W. or Psycho, but definitely one of his best. Unappreciated gem, its one of my favorites as well.

Well the way I look at it is that if everyone had the same tastes then the world would be a very boring place!

The Bourne Legacy Review comment
Nice review. Was likewise expecting more from tha talented Edward Norton. It's baffling why the director intended on attaching this to te Bourne franchise. I'm sure people were left wondering while scratching their heads.

The Silence of the Lambs Review comment
Great piece of trivia with Fujimoto as the cinematographer of Sixth Sense as well. rarely do you have a best picture in this genre. Loved this review.
