The Cheap-Arse Film Review
An original video series hosted by Liam Barrett!
Liam Barrett It's the Cheap-Arse Film Review, where a young(ish) man finds out if it's possible to live the life of a cinephile super-nerd on the strictest budget possible. Inspired by growing up in the wilds of Essex, England (that's only partially a joke, by the way) and the current harsh economic times, Liam only reviews DVD that can be purchased for £1.00p or less!
Leprechaun: In the Hood (2000) Cheap Arse Film Review #16
Leprechaun: In the Hood (2000)
The Cheap-Arse Film Review #16
Posted Apr 8, 2013 by Liam Barrett

Once you've sunk low enough to send your horror franchise into space, the only place left to go is the hood, apparently, as Warwick Davis faces off against rappers (namely, Ice-T and a guy who was on Star Trek for four seasons and only had ten lines) in Leprechaun: In the Hood, the fifth movie in the Leprechaun saga.

S Club: Seeing Double (2003) Cheap-Arse Film Review #15
S Club: Seeing Double (2003)
The Cheap-Arse Film Review #15
Posted Jan 23, 2013 by Liam Barrett

Cheapus reviews the one and only feature film starring S Club (née S Club 7), in which the wildly successful UK pop group finds themselves being cloned by a mad scientist for reasons that certainly must have made sense to the screenwriters.

A Cheap-Arse Christmas Special: The Curse of Chris Mass - Cheap Arse Film Review #14
A Cheap-Arse Christmas Special: The Curse of Chris Mass
The Cheap-Arse Film Review #14
Posted Dec 17, 2012 by Liam Barrett

Cheapus gets a set of DVDs for Christmas, but it turns out they contain four disembodied souls trapped between worlds by the sinister Chris Mass, and they can only be freed by reviewing the Christmas-themed movies contained within: Scrooged, Gremlins, Fred Claus, and Mixed Nuts!

Eight Legged Freaks (2002) Cheap Arse Film Review #13
Eight Legged Freaks (2002)
The Cheap-Arse Film Review #13
Posted Nov 24, 2012 by Liam Barrett

Cheapus attempts exposure therapy to overcome his fear of spiders by watching Eight Legged Freaks, where spiders in a small town get exposed to toxic waste, grow to enormous size, and terrorize the locals, including David Arquette, Kari Wuhrer, and a 15 year old Scarlett Johansson.

Cloverfield (2008) Cheap-Arse Film Review #12
Cloverfield (2008)
The Cheap-Arse Film Review #12
Posted Oct 30, 2012 by Liam Barrett

Accused by some of being little more than the bastard offspring of J.J. Abrams, Godzilla, and the Blair Witch, is this a true classic, or just a sad case of mass hysteria?

THe Master of Disguise (2002) Cheap-Arse Film Review #11
The Master of Disguise (2002)
The Cheap-Arse Film Review #11
Posted Oct 24, 2012 by Liam Barrett

Cheapus works out repressed emotional trauma from his youth by reviewing The Master of Disguise, a kids' film starring Dana Carvey as an Italian waiter who battles a farting Brent Spiner using his magical powers of disguise that he inherited from dad James Brolin. And yes, the Turtle Guy is in this.

Flesh Gordon Double Feature - Cheap-Arse Film Review #10
Flesh Gordon Double Feature
The Cheap-Arse Film Review #10
Posted Sep 5, 2012 by Liam Barrett

Cheapus dives headfirst into the cult sci-fi sex spoof Flesh Gordon, and its much lesser sequel. Featuring, amongst other things, laser-shooting nipples, adult babies (oh God...), some awesome stop-motion effects, some terrible acting, a giant gargoyle with the voice of a pickup artist, and a cameo by the Film Brain.

The Descent (2005) Cheap-Arse Film Review #9
The Descent (2005)
The Cheap-Arse Film Review #9
Posted Aug 22, 2012 by Liam Barrett

Pass 'round the birthday cake, because this installment of the Cheap-Arse Film Review finds Cheapus watching The Descent, a film that may be as much about one woman's decline into grief-induced madness as it is about Cannibalistic Albino Cavemen. And that's a good thing.

Donnie Darko (2001) The Cheap-Arse Film Review #8
Donnie Darko (2001)
The Cheap-Arse Film Review #8
Posted Jul 29, 2012 by Liam Barrett

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.

Lara Croft: Tomb Raider (2001) Cheap-Arse Film Review #7
Lara Croft: Tomb Raider (2001)
The Cheap-Arse Film Review #7
Posted Jul 17, 2012 by Liam Barrett

In this rather half-hearted adventure, Lara must stop a Whatever Artifact from falling into the hands of the dumbest version of the Illuminati ever. A pre-007 Daniel Craig shows up to be her love interest, while also doing a terrible American accent.

Magnolia (1999) Cheap-Arse Film Review #6
Magnolia (1999)
The Cheap-Arse Film Review #6
Posted Jul 7, 2012 by Liam Barrett

Cheapus takes you character by character through Magnolia, writer-director Paul Thomas Anderson's lengthy opus about 24 hours in the lives of interconnected people living in the San Fernando Valley, starring Philip Seymour Hoffman, William H. Macy, Julianne Moore, John C. Reilly, Jason Robards, and Tom Cruise in an Oscar-nominated role. 

Rocky Balboa (2006) Cheap-Arse Film Review #5
Rocky Balboa (2006)
The Cheap-Arse Film Review #5
Posted Jun 28, 2012 by Liam Barrett

Cheapus steps into the ring for the Sylvester Stallone-directed final entry in the Rocky series, where the now 60 year old boxer makes a surprising comeback (as does the actor playing him). Rocky fans get everything they expect: Burt Young, a training montage set to "Gonna Fly Now", and both Rocky and Sly overcoming the odds.

Serenity (2005) The Cheap-Arse Film Review #4
Serenity (2005)
The Cheap-Arse Film Review #4
Posted Jun 4, 2012 by Liam Barrett

It was a huge gamble making a big budget film based on a failed TV show. Did it pay off? Well... you probably already know the answer to that, but Cheapus will tell you anyway!

King Ralph (1991) Cheap-Arse Film Review #3
King Ralph (1991)
The Cheap-Arse Film Review #3
Posted May 14, 2012 by Liam Barrett

Full of rampant stereotyping of Brits and Americans, it's a one-joke comedy that quickly degenerates into shameless Burger King tie-ins and covers of overplayed Little Richard songs.

American Pie (1999) The Cheap-Arse Film Review #2
American Pie (1999)
The Cheap-Arse Film Review #2
Posted Apr 5, 2012 by Liam Barrett

Liam gets all nostalgic for 1999, pre-internet porn, soundtracks featuring Third Eye Blind and/or Blink-182, and American Pie, the blockbuster teen sex comedy where four friends (Jason Biggs, Chris Klein, some other guys) make a pact to get laid before prom, and set their sights on the likes of Tara Reid, Alyson Hannigan, Shannon Elizabeth, and one unsuspecting pastry.
