10,000 B.C. (2008)
Posted Jan 20, 2009 by Jessica Ritchey

"The movie presents actual 'history', but only the sort of ancient history that comes about from forgetting you have a test on paleontology until the night before, and then half-watching Jurassic Park in lieu of actually studying. And then, based on the events in the latter portion of this movie, chasing it with a repeat of Stargate SG-1."

21 Jump Street is a meta-film that laughs at its very existence.”

“This sequel to the reboot of the TV series 21 Jump Street is about as meta as a film can get.”

Posted Mar 27, 2014 by Joshua Bell

“So noticing that its successor 300: Rise of an Empire has actually attempted to be a story about something deeper, with multiple layers, symbolism, and themes, I’m at a loss to decide whether or not that’s actually a good thing.”

3000 Miles to Graceland (2001)
Posted Dec 15, 2003 by Ed Harris

The way to survive this movie? Turn it into Mystery Science Theater 3000 Miles to Graceland.

(500) Days of Summer (2009)
(500) Days of Summer (2009)
Posted Feb 13, 2010 by Dr. Winston O'Boogie

An Agony Booth Valentine's Day special!

“Not so long ago, it seemed that to make a well-regarded, critically acclaimed movie, you needed to have something remarkable to say, or at least a unique perspective on life. But as the makers of last year’s indie sensation (500) Days of Summer have shown, all you really need to do is watch a lot of movies, and have one mildly crappy relationship, and you’ve earned the right to make your mundane life experiences into a film, and subsequently be hailed as a genius for it.”

“If you held a gun to my head and forced me to pick the Bond movie that rises to the top, I would have to say it’s From Russia with Love.”

“Just imagine a standup comic telling you the same joke over and over for 105 minutes just to make sure you got it, and you’ll get a pretty good idea of what this movie is like.”

"Is there a more over the top way of killing your enemy than sending a team of goons over to his place to fire bomb him into the afterlife? I can only imagine they went that route because a tactical nuke would have been too expensive."

“And there you have it: an organization that could have prevented the Holocaust is now putting its top people to work stopping a congressman from hooking up with a dancer.”

An Agony Booth Christmas special!

In 1914, Thomas Edison didn’t have color film. He didn’t have sound. He didn’t have talent. He didn’t have any understanding of even the most basic filmmaking techniques. What he did have was the Christmas spirit. It was not enough.

“I guess they were going for the ‘making simple things as cryptic as possible’ motif of the series, not realizing that it didn’t really work all that well on the show, either.”

“I’m not sure that’s how evolution works, though it’s disheartening to see that Shyamalan thought so much of his silly ‘plants killing humans’ premise of The Happening that he reuses it here.”

After Earth is easily the first film Shyamalan has made in more than a decade that genuinely works. And yet, the response has been overwhelmingly negative thus far.
