American History X (1998)
I rarely buy movies. But I did buy American History X.This is the incredibly powerful story of two brothers who fall into the trap of racism and hate. It is also the story of these brothers trying to …

Magnolia (New Line Platinum Series) (1999)
Esoteric films like Magnolia are often judged largely on a basis of stylistic merit; the "how" over the "what." I'm very much a "what" person, as in I generally care for *what* is being said more than …

Habitat (1997)
Habitat, the story, isn't the worst idea in the world and the actor's did the best they could. But, I was so aggrivated by the time the film closed that I immediately took it back and rented another on …

Deterrence (2000)
DETERRENCE is one of those movies that nobody hears about until it comes out on video. Boosting no blockbuster stars and a rather small budget it didn't have much of a theatrical release. However, thanks …

Alright, if you happen to stumble across this review...know this. Watcher in the woods proves that it isn't what you see that scares you, it is what you don't know. Example being Blair witch, or Jaws, …

Gummo (1997)
This movie is really weak, I am not sure what the point of it is. I have watched it two times through and it is sad that I am admitting that. The movie has no beginning and no end, only a middle. I also …

Alien Resurrection (Thx) (1997)
I was disappointed by ALIEN 3. That movie's nihilistic deconstructionist view of life ruined everything that had been built by the first two films (I couldn't help but think that Frank Miller had a part …

The Mummy (1999)
When THE MUMMY first came out all my friends told me it was a really good movie that reminded them of Indiana Jones. When I finally first watched this film, I was let down. It seemed to me to be a poor …

Alien 3 (1992)
Out of all four films of the Alien franchise, this is the most disappointing. Besides breaking rules previously established in the first two films (a facehugger can lay only one egg before dying, the …

Titus (1999) (2000)
Doesn't the title of this review say it all? During Shakespeare's prime time, TITUS ANDRONICUS was the most popular of all his plays. The audiences ate this work up. However, as time went on the play …

Ghost Dog - The Way of the Samurai (1999)
"Ghost Dog" is the first Jim Jarmusch movie I've seen, and it was a quirky little treat. The movie lopes along in much the same rhythm Forest Whitaker chooses for his character's walk, and the pleasure …

Innerspace (1987)
Besides particular types of fashion, music, and television, the 1980s also contained its own unique movies. In a typical 80's movie (whether it be comedy, action, or drama) there is the roguish, dashing …

Exotica (1995)
Okay, I'll admit it. The box cover tempted me to rent it, particularly as the quoted reviews on the box were good. But it was not what I expected. The whole movie is about being not what you expected. …
