10 Things I Hate About You (1999)
Stuff You Like #4
Posted Mar 25, 2012 by Sursum Ursa

It's the High School AU based on Shakespeare's The Taming of the Shrew! Who'd have thought such a crappy play could make such an awesome film? In today's episode: A Party Also Known As An Orgy, Allison Janney, Heath Ledger, Julia Stiles, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Ye Olde Butchered English. Enjoy!

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."

2019, After the Fall of New York (1983)
Good Bad Flicks #21
Posted Jun 25, 2012 by Cecil Trachenburg

Cecil reviews another of his favorite post-apocalyptic flicks, a cheesy Franco-Italian cash-in on Escape from New York. After a nuclear war, the entire human race is rendered sterile. It's up to a mercenary named Parsifal (not a typo) to infiltrate the ruins of New York City and find the last fertile woman on earth.

3 Dev Adam: Turkish Spider-Man (1973)
The Film Renegado #8
Posted Jul 4, 2012 by Film Renegado, Sofie Liv, Michael A. Novelli

Three mighty reviewers (Film Renegado, Mr. Mendo, and Sofie Liv) team up to review the movie where Spider-Man is a psycho rapist crime boss who has to be stopped by Captain America and El Santo, in one of the most nonsensical and confusing plots ever.

300: Rise of an Empire (2014)
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)
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.”

9 (2009)
Cartoon Palooza #22
Posted Oct 28, 2012 by Joey Tedesco

It promised to be "not your little brother's animation", but instead, we got Tim Burton-style action figures acting out The Terminator.

Action Jackson (1988)
Posted Dec 10, 2007 by Ed Harris

"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."

The Adjustment Bureau (2011)
Posted Nov 17, 2014 by Chelsey McQuitty

“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.”

The Adventure of the Wrong Santa Claus (1914)
Posted Dec 20, 2009 by Jordon Davis

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.

Aeon Flux (2005)
Posted Feb 18, 2014 by Chelsey McQuitty

“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.”

After Earth (2013)
Posted Mar 19, 2014 by Staff Writer

“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 (2013)
Posted Jun 1, 2013 by Joshua Bell

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.

Aladdin: The Return of Jafar (1994)
Cartoon Palooza #7
Posted Apr 29, 2012 by Joey Tedesco

It's Joey's hate-filled review of The Return of Jafar, a lazy, badly animated cash-in on Aladdin, and the first (and probably worst) Disney direct-to-video sequel!
