Heavy Action: The Last Boy Scout

Because we're not yet done remembering the legacy of Tony Scott, let's take a look back at his best action movie and one of the few great buddy cop movies of the 1990s.*

Netflix This Movie! Vol. 6

Summer is winding down, and nothing good is coming to theaters. Stay home and watch these instead.

Movies I Love: True Romance

Today's F This Movie! entry was originally going to be a review of The Master, the new movie from Paul Thomas Anderson that's due out in about a month. But then Tony Scott got diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor (or maybe he didn't) and chose to jump off a bridge and kill himself rather than wait to die, and it seemed like I should write something about it. He wasn't a filmmaker that always meant a lot to me, but he did make one movie that means more to me than most. For that, I will forever be grateful.

Unsung!: Big Trouble

I have always felt a little sorry for Barry Sonnenfeld’s Big Trouble. I guess like most things related to comedy, it’s all in the timing.

Watchin' Trailerz with Doug (August 17)

These really are the dog days of summer, you guys. The good news? Some (SOME) of these trailerz look promising! And don't worry -- only a few more weeks before October. Or, as we like to call it around here: SCARY MOVIE MONTH!

I'll Watch Anything: Patrick Sees The Movie Orgy

With the ever-increasing availability of old and obscure titles on home video -- from VHS to DVD to instant streaming -- there are fewer and fewer Holy Grails of cinema. London After Midnight. Orson Welles' original cut of The Magnificent Ambersons. That movie where Jerry Lewis dresses up like a clown and lures kids into Nazi death camps. For me, it has always been Joe Dante's The Movie Orgy.

Netflix This Movie! Vol. 5

Unsung!: Quick Change

Like Bowfinger, which I wrote about a few weeks ago, Quick Change is one of the great, undiscovered comedies of the 1990’s. The two films stand nicely as “bookends” for the decade.

Patrick and JB talk about Raiders of the Lost Ark. Sort of.

Unsung!: After Tomorrow

Sometimes you see an older film and it just sticks with you ... or it reminds you of what contempt current filmmakers have for their audiences.

Review: Total Recall

It seems like a lot of the discussion over Len Wiseman's new remake of the Arnold Schwarzenegger sci-fi classic Total Recall boils down to "Is it better than the original?" That's the wrong question. How it compares to the original is irrelevant. The question we should be asking is "Is it a good movie?"

The answer is no. Not really.

I'll Watch Anything: Erich Watches The Baby

by Erich Asperschlager
I’ll admit it. No one asked me to watch this movie. I did this to myself. If that breaks some sacred trust between this site and its readers, I apologize. I just really needed to get it off my chest.

Netflix This Movie! Vol. 3

If you're not coming to our screening of Die Hard tonight, here are some movies you should watch instead.

F This Movie! - Revenge of the Ninja Commentary

Patrick goes solo and talks his way through the sublime '80s action movie Revenge of the Ninja, a movie chock full of goddamn sonuvabitch ninjas.

Watch Revenge of the Ninja on Netflix here! Don't feel the need to watch the movie first, either. You can play it through with the commentary the first time and still catch on.



Last chance to order tickets for the F This Movie! screening of Die Hard on August 2nd.
