    The Raven (2012)
    Director: James McTeigue
    Starring: John Cusack, Alice Eve
    This movie is: Horror, based on a lot of stories

    You know how when you were in ninth grade you thought Edgar Allan Poe stories were super cool? And then later you realized you didn't have any major developmental problems, so you kind of moved on? Still, maybe you're wondering what it would be like if someone found a way to put one--or more--of those stories on the screen in a way that wasn't all lame and golf-pantsy and inappropriate-touchy (oh, yeah, I'm calling you out, Vincent Price. Don't pretend you don't know that's the vibe you give off.) That might be cool, right?

    Sure, maybe, but The Raven won't be that experience. You're gonna come out of this fucker feeling worse than if you just got molested by Uncle Vincent. Like maybe you just might be the molester. Because the only reason to see this is to spend quiet time in the dark looking at all of the retarded pretties. There are some pretty people in this movie, for sure. But the script is so stroke-inducingly idiotic and the acting is so intermittently competent that you feel kind of creepy watching the whole disaster unfold. If you were a better person you would look away--but there are some cool sets, you tell yourself, and some solid costuming choices, and even a couple of good effects--and you let these be excuses for watching and watching as the plot thins and thins and the chemistry of the cast flickers and dies.

    Shame on you. Stop that. It isn't nice to stare at the mentally handicapped, even if some of them are really quite nice looking. You can get up and get a refill on that popcorn, now, and sneak into a better movie while you still have time. You know how this movie ends, anyway, if you were paying any attention at all in the first five minutes, or, in fact, if you've ever been to another movie ever. -- C.Mayhew

It's a bloodsoaked, zombie, gore filled movie,  with a neat cheese topping..... plus a side order of hot chick with a chainsaw!!!!

    The zombie movie that takes the bold step of not having many zombies in it. To be fair, there ARE zombies, but they pose little threat to the boring unmemorable cast when compared with a sentient computer system that's trying to kill everyone to stop the spread of the virus. Although a antidote to the virus exists, so the whole plot is pretty pointless. However there are numerous scenes of Milla Jovovich crawling around mostly naked, and one part where she kicks a zombie dog in the face somehow. So not a total loss. --Leslie Down

    The characters break into song within like the first 30 seconds and it never stops. If you're already rolling your eyes you can be sure this movie is not for you. You have to be a total geek to want to see a musical. Also, it's best if you lived through the 80s and can appreciate the music. Yes, I'm a geek, and yes, I grew up in the 80s so yes, I had fun. That said, of all the musicals ever made, it's certainly not the best. But Tom Cruise rocked it pretty hard, as hard as he could anyway, and the scenes with Russell Brand and Alec Baldwin were pretty hilarious. Maybe you'll catch it on cable one of these days and secretly enjoy it. - Angela Demonde

Not so much a movie as a series of 80’s butt-rock montages interspersed with scenes involving robotic maids pining after Paulie and robotic Dolph Lundgren pining after steroids. Seriously, there are like 12 montages in this movie all trying to recapture that “Eye of the Tiger” magic from Rocky III. Still, no one satisfied our Reagan era Soviet bloodlust like Sly Stallone and this is a good waste of your time on a Sunday afternoon. God Bless America. -- Mick Finnegan

    Pairs well with: Red Dawn, Rambo III where sly oddly enough helped the Taliban? Is that true?

    No shit: The dude that plays Gorbachev in Rocky IV also plays Gorbachev in The Naked Gun.

    Watch this series in order and you'll see the slow, steady slide down in quality. A favorite as a kid, it's more than a little ridiculous.

    I love how it degrades to a street fight in the 5th movie. But the last one Rocky balboa was spot on awesome. Hell i should review that soon.

    I liked "Rocky Balboa" as well -- but when I watched it again I realized that its really only a bunch of montages of footage from the original "Rocky".

    The original is definitely your best bet.

    Rolling Thunder (1977)
    Director: John Flynn
    Starring: William Devane, Tommy Lee Jones
    This movie is: 70’s action, revenge, satisfying

    You gotta love a revenge movie where the hero has a hook for a hand and is not a pirate. --Andy "Action-slacks" McGillicuddy

    Pairs well with: TAXI DRIVER (1974), FIRST BLOOD (1980)

    Room 237 (2013)
    Director: Rodney Ascher
    Starring: Clips from Kubrick flicks and the voices of batshit crazy people

    A Shining fan documentary that collects other, more batshit crazy Shining fans, reduces their humanity to nothing but voices talking over movie clips, while exploring their insane fan theories. In other words: Exploitation art! Yay! -- TheErikWilliams

    No shit: There are a lot of crazy motherfuckers who like The Shining and think it means something more than what it does. Um, don't invite these cats to your Super Bowl party. Maybe a Bris but not the Super Bowl.

    This Movie: Is Based on a True Story and is Still 99% Bullshit

    An underdog story. And what are underdog stories? the unexceptional.-- TheErikWilliams
