Short Movie Reviews


Superbad: Super funny. McLoved it.

Juno: A movie about a teenage pregnancy being funny? Absolutely. Smart, funny, and witty - with a little bit of an Arrested Development influence.

A Clockwork Orange: One of the films I've always heard about but never saw. I bailed after 40 minutes. I love weird stuff. I search out weird stuff. But this was just weird.

Sorry to hear you couldn't get into A Clockwork Orange. I think the film is as relevant today as it was when it was released considering ongoing problems with youth violence and attitudes towards rehabilitation.

Superbad-super appropo title.I lasted about 15 min.
Juno-haven't seen it-witholding condemnation which is sure to come when I'm suckered into watching.
A Clockwork Orange-an awesome movie in it's day that didn't age well. It's not even "so bad it's good" demanding you drag you drag it out on a rainy Saturdy every couple of years just to goof on it,it's just bad.But I guess everyone should try to watch it at some point in there lives.

Check out Trainspotting for weirdness, if you haven't already. Or Gummo - I love that movie!

High school/college boyfriend made me watch his favorite flick, A Clockwork Orange once. I seriously suspected he had begun dropping acid. Weird *ss film. Oh yeah, and he was a total jerk-off. Perspective, baby.

Juno was awesome. Ellen Page is my new fav. "Break-out" actress.

Superbad? I'm not a teenager. Thanks anyway.

I only lasted about 10 minutes with Superbad. Comedy is such a copout genre these days to use obscene and crude language for two straight hours. "Comedy" just isn't funny anymore. Haven't seen Juno, read and liked Clockwork Orange but haven't seen the movie.

A very good weird movie is Buffalo 66.
They're still talking about a sequel to Trainspotting. The original director will direct if it happens. This fact kind of makes me wonder about what we assume related to drugs affects on our bodies. That dude has been an unrepentant heroin abuser for probably 20+ years.

On my Netflix page it always Says,"Based on your previous rentals may we suggest..." Then it brings up male gay oriented movies and Anime'. What's that all about I wonder.

Superbad is everything that is wrong with high school aged kids today. I was appalled from start to finish. It tells kids that treating girls like objects is funny and that there are no consequences for bad decisions. It is the reason that young people go off to college and end up drinking themselves to death because they don't understand how to do it responsibly. It's an awful movie and a sad testament to this generation's values.

i just watched the Coen Bros. new flick No Country For Old Men and your review is regrettably spot-on. So another weird-ass movie for you to check out is He Was a Quiet Man, with former heart-throb Christian Slater playing the anti-thesis of such. A before and after of ol' Slater will serve to cure daughters of boy-band fever forever--he's pretty convincing as office psycho.
