'The Philadelphia Experiment' Is So Bad It's Almost Good

If you're going to develop a drinking game around this film, don't make a rule about drinking a shot every time you see electroplasma effects on the screen or you'll be falling under the table before it's half over.

Blue Gold: World Water Wars

Painting a frightening picture of violence, greed and desperation, Bozzo reveals another growing crack in our fragile environment.

Bolt

Bolt's faith in his fiction is slightly pathetic, but it's not unrelated to the ways that children (as well as pets) are regularly conditioned.

Talk, Talk, Talk: November 2008

Like the sainted sigh of relief that comes after another shriek-filled All Hallow's Eve, November usually means the start of the 'nominate me' process for the proposed prestige pictures of 2008.

The List

A muddled bit of Southern Gothic lite, but somehow manages to be a pretty decent movie.

Accepting the Blame: The Top Guilty Pleasures of 2007

PopMatters proffers its collection of 2007's most notable defective faves. And it's okay to laugh. After all, we'd probably do the same to you and your uncomfortable fixations as well.

Halloween

In Carpenter's film, evil shows up right where you think you'd be safe. No one imagines he's safe in whitetrashland -- especially the section inhabited by a heavily inked up William Forsythe.

If . . . (1968)

Watching If…. today, it still fails to provide any sort of answer for how tradition and change can be reconciled.

Heroes

Heroes' set-up was both simple ("Save the cheerleader, save the world") and impressively complex.

Monkey Business (Part 4: August)

In past years, Hollywood purposely counter programmed these renowned Cineplex dog days, trying to offset the perception that cinematic scraps were all the studios had to offer. From the look of this lame list, it's apparently back to the filmic fridge for some patently warmed over offerings.

Film

In Good Company (2004)

In Good Company pushes Carter and Dan up against one another, so that they can work through their mutual anxieties, resentments, and jealousies.

I'll Sleep When I'm Dead (2003)

For all the inevitability of Will's descent, I'll Sleep When I'm Dead is an almost perversely moving experience.

I'll Sleep When I'm Dead (2003)

Will (Clive Owen) is a menace, even to the bad guys.

The Company (2003)

Evocations of life's uncertainty -- an Altman specialty -- simultaneously expose the obstacles the ballet company must overcome in order to mount a production.

Film

I Spy (2002)

The basic opposition between sheepish Alex and suave Kelly sets up a series of trivial conflicts, some less tedious than others.

Gangster No. 1 (2000)

Gangster No. 1's style and plot are stale.
