VIDEO: The Scorpion King (2002)

What has: swords, sorcery, and a female lead who wears nothing but sequins and chiffon? The Mummy prequel The Scorpion King, which also handily features Actual Funny™ and lots and lots of half-naked men. She may not love it, but Ursa’s probably not going to be too disappointed in this one.

VIDEO: Red Riding: In the Year of Our Lord 1974 (2009)

The kickoff for a trilogy, it stars Andrew Garfield as a journalist who decides to examine a possible connection between the disappearances of three young girls. What he finds is far more sinister than he ever expected. It’s a criminally underrated story of corruption, murder, and steamy sex in 1970s West Yorkshire that’s quite a gripping tale, assuming you can understand what’s being said.

VIDEO: Legacy Hunting: Tintin

In Legacy Hunting, Sofie is not just reviewing one movie, but exploring the legacy left behind by an important franchise. This time around, she looks at Tintin, the series of comic books about a young reporter and his dog, created by Belgian artist Hergé.

VIDEO: Spy Kids (2001)

In this episode, Renegado begins a retrospective of the original Spy Kids trilogy. In the first installment, Gregorio (Antonio Banderas) and Ingrid Cortez (Carla Gugino) are international spies that have to be rescued by their kids, who become spies themselves and save their parents from the silly clutches of the evil mastermind Floop (Alan Cumming).

VIDEO: Donnie Darko (2001)

In what could be considered a counterpoint to Mr. Mendo’s own review, Cheapus takes a look at Donnie Darko, which he happily admits has its fair share of problems (EXPLAIN YOURSELF EVERY ONCE AND A WHILE, WHY DON’T YOU), but he believes the film still has much about it to recommend.

VIDEO: Next (2007)

First up, Johnny looks into his own future and sees Next, the story of a low-rent Las Vegas magician who can inexplicably see two minutes into the future. Starring Nicolas Cage, Julianne Moore, and Jessica Biel, this is quite possibly the most poorly written movie Johnny’s ever seen.

VIDEO: Batman Begins (2005)

It’s Ursa’s Five Fave Fings (she’s a trained alliterationist–don’t try this at home) about Batman Begins! And Batman, according to this movie, begins with Morgan Freeman, Liam Neeson, Katie Holmes’ lack of undergarments, themes of idealism and fear, and Christian Bale’s abs.

VIDEO: Grave Encounters (2011)

Phil Buni joins the site with a found footage horror movie that mocks bad reality TV! It’s basically a better-than-expected Paranormal Activity clone, reviewed by a stoned bunny that really likes talking about people going insane a lot. Features a guest cameo from the Nostalgia Chick that’s super important to the integrity of the review!
