VIDEO: Reindeer Games (2000)

This week, Cecil gets serious again to talk about John Frankenheimer’s extremely under-appreciated action crime thriller Reindeer Games starring Ben Affleck, Gary Sinise, and Charlize Theron. And stay tuned after the review for a reading of the classic holiday poem “‘Twas the Flick Before Christmas”!

VIDEO: Detention (2011)

This meta-mashup movie stars Josh Hutcherson and Dane Cook in a high school comedy/drama that morphs into a slasher movie, which them morphs into a sci-fi story involving body switching, time travel, and the end of the world.

VIDEO: The Butterfly Effect (2004)

Phil’s special Time Travel Month continues with The Butterfly Effect! Ashton Kutcher has the hereditary power to travel back in time, which he uses to try to fix things, but instead he just screws up the present more and more. Unfortunately, this movie doesn’t understand how time travel works, or even the fundamental concept behind its own title.
