OLR: They Bite (1996)

A little too draggy to be a truly great bad movie. (6/10)

d. Brett Piper

OLR: D.C. Cab (1983)

Dumb fun with a nicely insane Gary Busey, angry-good-hearted Mr. T and a young, goofy-lookin' Adam Baldwin. (7/10)

d. Joel Schumacher

OLR: Killdozer (1974)

Nothing like watching a cheezy TV movie about an improbably intelligent bulldozer on lazy afternoon. (6/10)

OLR: The Mack (1973)

Yes, the pimp outfits and Players' Ball and huge Cadillacs were awesome, but a tighter story would've been nice, too. (6/10)

d. Michael Campus

OLR: The Slammin' Salmon (2009)

Michael Clarke Duncan is hilarious, but the film lacks the spark of zaniness found in previous BL movies. (6/10)

d. Kevin Heffernan

OLR: Step Brothers (2008)

Quoted all the following day between a friend and I after watching it late the night before. (8/10)

d. Adam McKay

Guest OLR: Pandorum (2009)

Hollywood's response to Eden Log; unstable plot, poor creature design, style run-amok, shitty ending, whole thing just makes you wish you were playing Dead Space instead, etc. (5/10)

d. Christian Alvart

OLR: The Great White Hype (1996)

There's actually a few deeper thoughts on racism in here than I'd've thought. (6/10)

d. Reginald Hudlin

12 April 2010

OLR: Tyson (2008)

You would think 90 minutes of Tyson talking about himself might not make for a good documentary, but you'd be wrong. (7/10)

d. James Toback

11 April 2010

OLR: Sleeping Beauty (1959)

Beautiful animation coupled with a slow story lacking much excitement or comedy. (6/10)

d. Clyde Geronimi

OLR: The Hurt Locker (2008)

It conveys very well -- I'm guessing, anyway -- the extreme stresses soldiers experience in modern warfare and how those stresses affect different personalities. (8/10)

d. Kathryn Bigelow

OLR: Rocky IV (1985)

One of those quintessential '80s movies any fan of the decade must watch and enjoy. (7/10)

d. Sylvester Stallone

03 April 2010

OLR: Short Circuit (1986)

Just a cheezy '80s comedy, but that robot design is great. (6/10)

d. John Badham

OLR: Rocky III (1982)

Worth it just to witness Mr. T pitying his very first fool. (7/10)

d. Sylvester Stallone
